In other words, the change in atmospheric composition is roughly .02%. That's it.

Yes, that is a small change in composition relative to the atmosphere, but what is the effect? Adding a few grains of salt to a glass of water will pretty much have no noticeable effect. But adding a small drop of food colouring to that same glass of water will affect the colour significantly. A small change CAN have big effect.

I don't get it, after reading the comments here, why is there so much resistance accept that man is causing climate change? Just thinking logically, it makes sense. We're taking carbon that's been buried for millions of years, and then burning it, on a huge scale. How can this not affect the climate? I actually hope that the climate skeptics are right.

The NSA is using terrorism as an excuse for industrial espionage, which then is probably then used to further enrich the already wealthy. I wouldn't be surprised if the NSA is spying for Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan to get inside information so they can trade accordingly. This would at least be consistent with the pattern of using tax payer's money to enrich a few people.

But now, the printing presses are controlled by the richest people in the world, which happen to profit the most from the current money printing. The biggest banks get essentially free loans, then buy treasuries at 2% yield, profit! All while the brunt of the population has to suffer the corresponding inflation. Sure, inflation is low, if you don't eat or use any energy.

It amazes me that US prosecutors go full throttle going after people like Barrett Brown and Aaron Swartz, while people like Jon Corzine (who made $1.6B of customer money disappear at MF Global) and many other fraudsters in the banking industry are left alone to continue their fraud. And no one seems to care enough to do something about it.
