His post referred to CO2 emissions

It was a sarcastic response but you asked what he was talking about


If someone discusses CO2 emissions in regard to GW and then another poster asks what they are talking about it seems logical that question is because they dont know about CO2 emissions



Oh. He needs to work on his sarcasm then. I would have assumed anyone following the thread sees quite clearly that I am very informed about GW theory. Informed enough to not just dismiss it, but to have given multiple reasons for my dismissal. He just said something about pumping out all kinds of CO2 for some unknown reason.

Sarcasm is the use of irony to convey contempt. Like, "Calling for blizzard and record cold, is it time for the GW convention?" This uses irony because there have been several GW conventions held during record snow or/and cold and conveys contempt for the GW position because they are having problems with the same cold weather and snow they say was supposed to not happen.

Saying "then lets pump CO2" is not sarcasm by that definition. So that is why I did not get it.

National Park Quietly Removed Warning That Glaciers ‘Will All Be Gone’ By 2020 After Years Of Heavy Snowfall

But the scientists said they would be gone!

Maybe they will get one right one day.

My x and I went to Glacier national park in the late 70's and were at the lake that that glacier feeds [glacier lake]. Had a blanket on the shore and she stripped naked and went out to about 3 foot deep and squatted down until just her head was sticking out.

She said, cuh cuh come on on in in, the wuh water's fuh fine. I said, you're a ****ing liar. She stood up so fast and almost ran out on top of the water it was so frigging cold. I should have known then.

The guy claims he saved the world from disaster and admits the end result was everyone believes he was lying about Y2K since it never happened

What a conundrum if true. Save the world from disaster and be labeled a charlatan or just let the world implode with your reputation intact?

What would you guys do?



I will try and phrase how I see the problem. I would contend there is no problem waiting on doing anything until there is enough satisfying data, with the exception, on any problem where the satisfying data is not received soon enough to solve it. So if the conclusion on the data comes without the ability to resolve it, as you've waited too long to implement it, you've got an issue on your hands if trouble is coming as you waited too long to correct it.

Three things are true. The planet is warming. The CO2 is rising. And the rising coincides steeply with human activity. You can say correlation doesn't equal causation, but you just have to buy that it is a big coincidence then. They may not have temps recorded way back when, but you can look at recent ice cores, older ice cores, and even very very very old ice cores and get CO2 data. It has RISEN very significantly recently at least as large time scales go.

If the argument were that we were endangering lives making the decision to try to circumvent what is happening I think it would be a fair argument against doing anything. But we're not. If the argument was that we will never need alternative energy developed, that too would be a good argument. We will eventually develop it anyway. What we would be doing is something we would do in the future anyway, with the advantage that it might avert some disaster by doing it now. Yes, people will possibly lose jobs in one energy sector but that isn't even a good argument as we can create jobs in a new energy sector.

What method of pumping CO2 into the atmosphere is your preferred method? How about we all just heavily exhale in unison?

Y2K was no more dangerous than Y1K.

Looks like Kim had a reason to have him killed, if that's what happened. It's ok to kill traitors isn't it?

So if you knew there was an American who was a traitor you would have no problem with him being killed without a fair trial?

And by having a chemical wash slathered in his face in an airport?

No, but let’s not be naive enough to pretend our own government hasn’t likely done this on several occasions throughout history without our knowledge, probably through third parties to retain plausible deniability.
