Which experiment? You mean the single one done and repeated a few times in the 1800's that don't really apply to Earth's atmosphere?

CO2 is a greenhouse gas on Mars, or compared to a vacuum, or an atmosphere full of monoatomic and diatomic gasses, but it retains LESS heat than the average molecule of gas in Earth's atmosphere. You can see this for yourself if you bothered to look them up, as I did a few years ago.

Water vapor is short lived, but we have shifted the equilibria. Ignoring that and focusing on the CO2 red herring will both lose you the support of industry and anyone who actually bothers to re-examine the core axiom of AGW, which is, in fact, blatantly, and I think purposefully wrong.

Saying that water vapor isn't a problem because of its short lifespan is like saying MRSA infections are no big deal because the bacteria just die in a few hours anyways.

No, it isn't. Restricting calories leaves you hungry, which is utterly ruinous. Low carb, high fat decreases your appetite naturally. After being on low carb for a few months, I am completely satisfied by a small salad and a small steak, where I used to be and eat like a big tubby fat-ass.

"Shows the heat absent from the surface plunging int the North and South Altantic Ocean."


Where's your heat pump? Or what's the insulator that kept this cold water completely isolated from the surface for the last two hundred years? If you can't explain either of these two potential scenarios that could lead to what you say being true, you are making shut up to defend your moribund theory. I don't care which side you are on, that kind of behavior KILLS THE SCIENCE. Stop that shit.

Well damn.

Uploading can also work by doing it gradually, replacing neurons one at a time with artificial ones, or fast links to an emulator. This could actually be done after being placed in a Matrix-like device that replaces signals going into and out of the brain. This has the upshot of not creating copies, meaning that there isn't a "you" that dies in the process.

It's like saying CmdrTaco will now be a woman. Thor is the name of a person, not a super-hero alter ego like Dread Pirate Roberts or something.

If it's a woman who takes up the Mjolnir, then fine, but it's not Thor. I don't care it its another blond haired blue eyed ponce from Sweden, it's not fucking Thor. Its Sven. Or Svetlana. Whatever. Let them be their own person with their own personality, not a canon fucking rule 64 gag.

One good reason why computers can do more work than people is that they never have to stop and answer the phone.
