Comment Re:Well, we need more water on land then (Score 1) 258

OR use that land to build large scale solar systems, and put 20 larger desalinators on the west coast.

Couple that with a fer million more acres of pulp forests we replace for paper and wood.

Stop recycling paper and instead bury it.

Now we have water, cleaner energy and a carbon sync.

Yes, and people can't handle nuance. She is smarter, more experienced, pretty much invented modern ways how to minimize conflict with economics,

But all of that isn't a sound bite. And if one thing was proven during Gore run, is that the people on Slashdot are also mostly slow witted people who just believe headlines and not facts.

global warming (GW) is a fact.

In fact, it's so simply even you could devise a test.

1) Visible light strikes the earth Testable? Yes. Tested? Yes. Could anyone devise a test? Yes

2) Visible light has nothing for CO2 to absorb, so it passes right on through. Testable? Yes. Tested? Yes. Could anyone devise a test? Yes

3) When visible light strike an object, IR is generated. Testable? Yes. Tested? Yes. Could anyone devise a test? Yes

4) Green house gasses, such as CO2, absorb energy(heat) from IR. Testable? Yes. Tested? Yes. Could anyone devise a test? Yes

5) Humans produce more CO2(and other green house gasses) then can be absorbed through the cycle. Testable? Yes. Tested? Yes. Could anyone devise a test? Yes

Each one of those has been tested, a lot. You notice deniers don't actually address the facts of GW? Don't have a test that shows those facts to be false?

So now you have to answer:

Why do you think trapping more energy(heat) in the lower atmosphere does not impact the climate?

Do you ahve any clue how much water that is? considering we are on a sphere* every centimeter takes a lot more water than the previous. Do the math.**

Now you ahve all the water moving with the tide.

**if you can't why the fuck are you talking about a scientific topic?
