Journal Journal: A geeky, Catholic, pro-life plan to reduce GCC 4

They tell us global climate change is caused by atmospheric carbon. Based on plant ability to sequester atmospheric carbon, I suggest the following methodology for sequestering carbon away from the environment for long periods of time.
  1. Plant native, drought resistant, edible plants on every available surface with sun. They need to be native and drought resistant because they will only be watered with rain.
  2. Have lots of babies. At least 10 children per family, whenever possible

The Real Lies website has damaged the credibility of government funded Big Science. Most people wish they could grade their own papers in college the same way. Imagine everyone graduates summa cum laude despite despite years of financial dissolution and academic cheating.

Farmers Almanac does a better job on prediction. It's based on solar activity.

Actually the kinetic studies on the atmosphere show that we are already turning over the CO2 surprisingly fast. It's conceivable that we won't be able to double the atmospheric CO2 levels given some decent management of the land and water.

In any case, we seem to probably be sliding toward a Maunder type minimum for the next 30 - 200 years, assuming it's not the Big One (ice age). Oh yeah, the onset of Ice Ages was the original rationale for the funding for climate studies that they haven't done much on.... This idiot is running around trying to cool it further. TOTAL F'G FAIL

Comment Pascal, “not clean”??? (Score 1) 623

And not as clean as C? They’re smoking crack or what? Pascal is so clean you can’t shoot yourself in the foot like you can with C! Ever wondered why there were no exploits in MacOS like there are in Windows? Because MacOS is written in Pascal! Good luck doing a string buffer overrun in Pascal! Here is on what I wrote my first program ever: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
