I don't know about your universe, in mine it's, I'm the center and it's H0/C in every direction!
The problem I see is some science hack, Ryan Wallace, writes some incoherent drivel, seemingly against convetional wisdom and doesn't reference the either the paper, or the press release on the research. We have no clue whether they are talking about CO2 from the decay of the corn stover left in the fields, or some mysterious CO2 release in the plants respiration.
In the arctic and antarctic there is plenty of warming - the ice sheets and glaciers are thinning, and that is something that is very measurable.
Actually it's not that measurable, satellites provide pretty good proxy estimates, but before satellites it's a lot of guess-work and extrapolation for a few physical measurements.
No matter which side your on, Google can find enough dis-credited research papers to support your position.
And the warming that there has been was more often the low temperatures becoming less cool rather than the high temperature becoming higher; most consider this a sign of the Urban Heat Island effect rather than a CO2 heat retention effect.
One of our townships in Michigan is in the same boat, except most of the power produced there is exported to New York; a lot of townships in Ontario are in the same boat, except most of the power produced there is exported to New York. We could save a lot of CO2 emissions by just stopping electricity from being imported by metro New York City.
John Hillerman, the guy that played Higgs in "Magnum PI" had a better moustache.
Wow I guess all of the Nuclear Aircraft carriers are chugging around on unicorn farts and pixie dust!
Just like a lot of Military base closings, It's all politics, it's the rule of reciprocity and what makes modern society even possible. Favors owed are favors to be repaid, without reciprocity your money would be useless, because basically all your money is worth is what it can buy and at the end of the day you can't eat gold. About the power grid, it's brittle, Northeast blackout of 2003 was one tree brushing against one transmission line and one software bug. Everything effects everything, taking out a power plant reduces redundancy in the system, You should watch Great Britian to see whats likely to happen this year because they don't have enough reserve capacity in their power grid and are depending on renewables for a significant portion of the power supply.
CO2 is causing problems, right now. Real problems.
Actually Crop production is at near record highes, in part because the necessary nutrient CO2 is available in increased amounts. Both Arctic and Antarctic sea ice is increasing, and there hasn't been any statistically significant Global Warming/Climate Change for 18 years; so please feel free to be more specific. If you'd go outside and actually experience some enviroment, you'd realizes that it's pretty fucking cold outside and we still have 4 weeks to go before winter starts.
Discusions often get heated and unreasonable when your talking about religon.
it might be worth it to power a reaction that pulls CO2 from the air to generate propane, ship that via pipeline to be burned and turned back into electricity at the receiving end.
CO2 is in the atmosphere at a concentration of just under 400 parts per million, the energy to caputure would produce more CO2 than would be captured. Even if the energy were completely "green and carbon-free" the energy would be better used to offset an CO2 producing power source instead that Capturing Free-Range CO2 from the atmosphere, I'm sure the watermellons would love the idea to shove more economically unviable variable-speed bird and bat choppers on us.
Some were, one of the more famous "200 MPG carburettor" is the Fish carburettor was actually produced and of course got anywhere near an impossible 200 MPG, but as a more effiecent system, it was used by weekend racers untill fuel injection and computer fuel management made engine tuning a programming exercise.
That's true, but probably not to the extent most would think, mostly you just have to put more effort into activities that are productive and less into activities that are non-productive. About 20% of your activity is going to produce 80% of your results, so you hire assistants to do the 80% and you consentrate on the 20% of that that is making 80% of your money and do more of it.
I kind of figure something was up when PC Cleaner said my linux machine had currupt entries in the registry; but al you can say is P.T. Barnum was right, there is a sucker born every minute.
