    Carbon can be measured so it can be taxed and traded on wall street. This is why the politicians from all over the world are giving money to scientist that are trying to prove that man produced carbon is the culprit. Still to this day there is no smoking gun to prove that carbon increases are the cause of a warmer planet or just a byproduct of a warmer planet. After all what does water IE oceans release into the atmosphere when it warms? Answer=Carbon

    What is the cause of the oceans warming? By the way, we are not yet at the point that the oceans emit more than they absorb. When we hit the point that the oceans are emitting more CO2 than they absorbing, we will be in deep trouble, indeed.

    We are all going to die too. It's worse than you think.

    Ah yes, Duckydoo, and we should take our children and grandchildren with us.

    I think Al Gore lost his shirt (and the Nobel prize money?) in a scam designed to corner the market on mythical carbon credits. The market went bust and so did the global warming theory.

    LOL. As far as I know, Gore is still very wealthy. And completely irrelevant to the science. This is what is relevant;



    The Carbon Cycle

    The term “tipping point” commonly refers to a critical threshold at which a tiny perturbation can qualitatively alter the state or development of a system. Here we introduce the term “tipping element” to describe large-scale components of the Earth system that may pass a tipping point. We critically evaluate potential policy-relevant tipping elements in the climate system under anthropogenic forcing, drawing on the pertinent literature and a recent international workshop to compile a short list, and we assess where their tipping points lie. An expert elicitation is used to help rank their sensitivity to global warming and the uncertainty about the underlying physical mechanisms. Then we explain how, in principle, early warning systems could be established to detect the proximity of some tipping points.

    I had a tiny perturbation one time and I had it lanced.

    Too much perturbation will blind you.
