The fact that it'd take centuries to achieve means that progress would be impossible to measure effectively so everyone would just have to believe that "improvement" was happening.

If we have to go in one direction with CO2 concentration it should be up, not down. Like temperature, which is preferable: warmer or colder?

There is never much focus on the benefits, only the (potential) downsides.

These and other aspects of the whole neverending crisis-mongering convinces me that it's a money and power grab.

The cute graphic of their automated system at their website is nice but we all know that it's really thousands of H-1B workers with foreign masters degrees doing all the work in a hidden basement. And you know what the guy who invented the robot arm first used it for/testing it with? Pussy grabbing!

Comment Patrick Moore's Law (Score 0) 249

"CO2 and temperature have NOT moved in unison. In fact, during the Jurassic, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere plummeted while temperatures rose. The same thing disparity occurred in the Eocene. It is therefore not possible to demonstrate a cause and effect relationship between CO2 and temperature over the long-term history. Carbon is not the enemy. It is actually the reason that we are alive.”

It's all about the headlines, flash messaging. The public (who are treated as 5th graders by media and marketeers/spinners/manipulators) knows Moore's Law = Magic Technology Something, so just transpose 'Moore's Law' into the Climate Arena as a solution to a problem and wait for the government dollars to flow in in response to public pressure.

Yes, this story is odd... almost if the "scandal" is ginned-up so as to generate Yet Another Story Of Workplace Sexism And Why Something MUST BE DONE NOW (And BTW, Trump Grabs Pussies).

It's just one more "Raising Awareness Moment" rammed into the eyeballs of the reader. Or a attempt to threaten a lawsuit and then settle.
