The question isn't whether "CO2 causes warming" but whether a change from 290 to 330 ppm in the troposphere can be the cause of a measurable change in the heat content of troposphere. Since it's all so trivial, I'm curious whether your undergraduate text explains why increased CO2 concentration in the stratosphere causes the stratosphere to loose heat.

Are all droughts caused by global warming, or were there droughts before global warming? Or maybe global warming just makes all droughts worse? It couldn't possibly make a drought better, right. It probably makes all floods worse too. It probably just makes everything worse. Makes total sense.

This is certainly the first detection of gravity waves. True, the gravity waves themselves aren't operating directly on the instrument. But as one of the researchers pointed out, there are two ways you could detect waves in the ocean, you could put a buoy in the water and detect it moving up and down, or you could take a picture of the waves from a distance, and this is like the latter.

You have it completely backwards. Most degrees are worthless to employers. Employable skills are not what is taught in college. If you want a good paying job, you should go to welding school. If you want a pile of debt and to live in you're parents' basement indefinitely, get a philosophy degree.

It costs so much because people have been conditioned to be willing to pay anything for it, believing it is essential for future success. And if they can't afford it the government ensures that they can borrow for it. There's no way tuition can possibly go but up until this scenario changes.
