    Wind farms.


    Wind farms can cause climate change, finds new study - Telegraph


    I guess it is official, our only hope is to deny electricity and transportation to everyone except the lords and ladies who are tasked to keep us safe from climate change. The rest of us can live in huts, or something that doesn't actually cause our breathing to increase the CO2 content of the atmosphere.

    Deniers tell us that man cannot affect the climate, but now suddenly they admit man can affect the climate.

    As I have shown over and over, CON$ are on all sides of every issue depending on which way the wind blows at the moment!

    Please feel free to go back through my posts and point out where I said man cannot affect the environment.

    Go ahead, I have time.

    So you deny that CON$ say it is pure arrogance to say that man can affect climate change!

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4IunAPb-fI]The conservative position on climate change is that man is n - YouTube[/ame]

    According to Tom DeLay, the conservative position on climate change is to ignore the science and claim that it is arrogant to suggest that man can affect climate change.

    This is what you did.

    That, to me, and every other intelligent person, implies that I said that man cannot affect climate.

    Ok, the mills mix the air layers. That does not change the overall heat content of the air, only changes the distribution. Now a big coal burning plant creates heat through the oxidization of the coal. So that is heat created. Then it spew CO2 into the air, which increases the amount of heat retained in the atmosphere. For every ton of coal burned, 2 and 1/2 tons of CO2 is created.

    Second point, are you going to shut down the big wind mills the ochardists use to mix the air during frost periods?

    The big turbines have far less affect on weather than does the burning of fossil fuels.
