And as to 4 above, that stands on its own. Again, OCO2 shows how much China emits, which is far far more than is generally admitted since Chinese leaders are lying.

How stupid are you?
Who cares what China is saying?
We know how much CO2 they produce by simply counting their oil, coal production, cars and power plants.
Man, what a no brainer.

No idea why you try to use propaganda links like the first one, which is an _american_ ... obviously they cheat with their "officially" released data, like you claim China would.

China's emissions from 1850 on, exceed America's total.
Very unlikely and no one can figure which is the case as we have no data bout that, neither from China nor from the USA, so it is completely brain dead to argue about that.

Your idea who produced how much CO2 in what times are all wrong.

Especially the retarded idea that in 10 years time frame China had produced more accumulated CO2 than the USA in 150 years.

A no brainer actually when you know that China just exceeded the US production a few years ago :D

Ice on land is melting during summer.
That means fresh water is on top of the sea water ... during summer.
When it gets cold in winter that freshwater is freezing and giving the false impression there would be some mystery going on.
The sea ice we are talking about 50 years ago, was *permanent* ice.
No we have sporadic ice ... and the so called records are exaggerated, there is no record.

The maximum was no maximum.

And most important it was not MASS but just area. And 6 month later all that "maximum" area ice melted in the summer again.

What is so hard to grasp that the problem is not melting or freezing of sea water?

The melting of ice on land is the problem, because it flows into the sea and rises its level.

That is actually a no brainer every child should grasp.

The links don't tell me anything new.

Except that the UK one starts with the claim, that UK would be the best place for wind power in the world.

Which is clearly wrong. The best place is antarctica, but no one there needs so much power.

A wikipedia article claiming a certain place is the best for wind power is just: bollocks.

Especially if the most important part: "WHY is that so?" is missing ;D

Regarding a clue, you where the one claiming Denmark would be north of UK ... while it is east last time I checked :D

More or less all of Scotland is north of Denmark.

Again, for the areas directly west of Denmark, that is mainly England and Wales and the southern part of Scotland: there is no plausible reason why those parts should have more wind than Denmark.

And I guess if you had more google foo, and I more patience, we simply could find a map in the internet showing the relevant wind speed factor for the UK and Denmark ...

Denmark is not north of the UK ... not even really north of England.

Jet streams have no influence on weather on the ground. I suggest you check what they are :D and how they work.

Regarding wind power, I doubt that UK has anything which makes it superior to Denmark. To have good places for wind power you only need long coast lines, or high hills. Scotland surely has more "hills" ... but Denmark has enough windy coasts.

I've seen a number of large projects (tens of thousands of lines of code)
This is a contradiction in itself.
10,000 lines even multiple of them, like 90,000 lines, is by no means "a large project".

The systems I work on usually have like 10,000 classes! no one bothers to count the lines though.

the primary code editing tools used by the developers were exclusively text editors like nano and vim - there is no IDE during development.
That is their problem ... we had this: vi(m) is better than an IDE talk a few days ago ... already.

By what law? Rofl ... you certainly live in a third world country!

Your discussion makes no sense anyway. If the washing machine is in the basement and the drier, too, why are you arguing about electricity prices and smart grids and when to wash and when not to wash if all that does not even apply to you?
