People are obsessed with CO2, they don't want the evidence in front of their eyes.
Let's assume--I'm not placing this as fact, just an assumption--but let's assume that global temperatures are rising. People are standing around denying this because the oceans sink CO2 and algae consumes it. CO2 has been this high or higher in the past, but there's all kinds of jockeying to mess with the graphs--stuff like throwing out high-quality ice core data for low-quality tree ring data and correlating growth with available material (carbon), which is much less accurate (sunlight, water, temperature, etc, all affect tree growth; and they only grow in the summer!). With the facts staring them in the face, they continue to bicker because the cause is, apparently, imaginary and political.
Now within our assumption that global warming is real, we've established that people are talking about CO2 = Global Warming. No CO2, no global warming, no matter what your thermometer says. Problem?
The city I'm in is extremely hot today. I wonder why. There's 600 degree exhaust air being pumped out of an oil fire near me.. with 50F weather outside, being 12 feet away from an ambulance is like sitting in front of a roaring furnace. There's hundreds of cars on the road pumping out heat. We've painted the roads black, we've cut down trees that bind sunlight (heat) into stored energy, we've started to collect solar energy and bleed it as heat, we've been burning a ton of wood and coal and oil and belching hot gas into the atmosphere.
The world is covered in one giant fucking heating network. Cooling systems move heat, rather than storing it out of the environment. Could that be it?
The earth's magnetic poles are shifting around, magma flows are changing. We have accepted scientifically that this happens and this causes drastic climate changes; yet as weather patterns shift, we blame the global temperature and claim it rearranges things. Crazy, right?
Stupid CO2 fetishists. The reason people don't believe we've ever had CO2 this high is because they don't want to. It used to be common theory, until someone decided it wasn't good for politics. Remember: We need something we can cite as a cause for a problem so we can look like we're fixing the problem.
I'd wager the situation wouldn't improve much if we switched to 100% solar energy. Air quality would be better.
This is a good thing. The farmer should buy real soy bean seeds and plant those. They're whining because they can't soak your soy beans in a constant stream of Monsanto pesticides.
The normal pesticide is actually Agent Orange, but manufactured correctly. It's a blend of Round-Up and something else (2-D-4-methylsomething or some such); Agent Orange was this blend, but we've been assured that it was so toxic because the manufacturing process produces certain other toxic chemicals that must be controlled, and the control was botched in that particular instance. That's been fixed.
Rather than tilling the land and weeding properly, farmers will buy Monsanto stuff that kills their crops, mixed with other stuff that kills grass but NOT their crops, and cover their crops in it. They'll get Monsanto seeds that won't be killed by the pesticides, and thus not have to worry about it killing their crops. "Organic" doesn't mean much, but organic farming and non-GMO crops can't be flooded with these particular herbicidal chemicals. They can still use Pyrithren pesticides, but not with PBO and certainly not Permethrin.
Yeah we do not need any research into other energy forms. We have all we need.
It's kind of like doing research into the energy generation potential of pederasty via thermal generation from friction.
