    no brainer..........been saying it for years!!! Its the main reason you're seeing states government greenhouse regulatory efforts crash and burn. People have woken up to the fact this fighting a scientific hail mary pass guess fcukks them in the arse. Its supported only by the nutballs who think we should follow through on all the idealistic notions that come to us. Of course, most of us call that the "liberal mind"!!!!!!:lol:

    If people want to be green...............God bless.............go for it. Fall all over yourselves and be gone with the guilt.............drive tht little gay SMARTCAR like Old Rocks drives. Im keeping my high powered 18 mpg Mustang forever!!!

    No, I looked at the beginning assumption, and I am not going to waste my time reading 47 pages that are based on assumptions that fly in the face of all that is known at present.

    If climate sensitivity is much lower, why are we losing the alpine glaciers, and why are we losing gigatons of ice from Greenland and Antarctica? How come the climatic zones are moving?

    Feedback is negative rather than positive? Pure bullshit. Permafrost CO2 and CH4 is negative? Arctic Ocean CH4 is negative? As for the water vapor feedback, cloud reflectivity, ect., that has not been settled yet, but appears to be positive from most studies.

    And when did the residence time of CO2 in the atmosphere change?

    when did the RT of CO2 change? when the CAGW alarmists found the historical values embarrasing to their theories. just like the MWP and LIA. and CO2 as plant food. and....
