    We know for an absolute fact that burning coal warms the planet. We have been told this by everyone from the Big 0 to Old Rocks. Now, however, we find that the reason the global isn't warming is that China is burning coal.

    Shut the front door!

    If Americans burn coal, it warms the planet so we cannot use the most plentiful resource in our ground to produce energy since Warming the Global is the worst catastrophe that can be imagined. So we've been told.

    Now we are told that the reason that the Global isn't Warming is BECAUSE too much coal is being burned. I see... Warming causes too much snow, too much rain, drought, floods, warming, cooling, rising seas that never rise and global famine while there is more food than ever before. Warming the Global is obviously freaky.

    Now we find out that the reason we cannot burn coal because of warming is the reason the Global isn't Warming because of the Coal burning. Again: Freaky.

    Makes me wonder if the big increase in temperatures since the early 20th Century might be due to the relative absence of coal burning, Globaly, that is.

    Add to the list of things to worry about dogs sleeping with cats, the condition known as hot dog fingers and anal seepage.

    But the cooling effect from sulfur is short-lived. By contrast, the carbon dioxide emanating from Chinese coal plants will last for decades, with a cumulative warming effect that will eventually overwhelm the cooling from sulfur and deliver another large kick to global warming, climate scientists say.

    A warmer climate could lead to rising sea levels,
    the spread of tropical diseases in previously temperate climes,
    crop failures in some regions and
    the extinction of many plant and animal species, especially those in polar or alpine areas.

    Wow....a perfect demonstration that you're too f*cking retarded to understand plain English. You even quote one the important facts that debunks your whole idiotic rant....and that's beyond retarded. LOL.

    more winning!!!!!!!!!


    shit......lately on here, watching the k00ks grand scheme crash land on an almost daily basis is nothing less than a hoot.
    In a few years, this 10 year run from the end of the 90s until about 2007 is going to be looked back upon as a fcukking fad........as I said well over 10 years ago. Funny thing is though..........they've taken the big one up the pooper and still come on here like they have some kind of mainstream grasp on the conventional wisdom. LAUGH MY BALLS OFF..........its what keeps me coming back in here all the time.

    Dave coal is coal. BUT we have something that cleans it on our coal plants that keeps the sulfur and crap out of the Atmosphere. China's surfer goes straight into the Atmosphere.

    The cooling effect of sulfur is a short term thing and once they clean up the much longer term co2 shall warm things.:tongue::tongue:

    Much in the way that the catalytic converter reduces the amount CO and turns it into CO2. CO just kills us quick. CO2 tortures us first by making us deal with the EPA and the IPCC.

    No, obviously not...........but if you're extremely stupid and completely clueless you might say that, as you so aptly demonstrate.
