    First, I don't think putting large amounts of dirt in the air is a good thing.
    Second, most of my working life I have commuted on foot, by bike, or by bus. Only rarely have I commuted by car. I recycle. etc etc.

    It always bugs me when I am stuck behind an SUV with green bumper stickers on it when I ride my bike. And it happens a lot.

    Anyway, on Global Warming..
    • The earth's temperature is varialbe. From one year to the next, one decade to the next from one century to the next
    • Most of what makes the temperature variable is outside of our understanding, and what we do know about is mostly outside of our control
    • There has always been a huge amount of bogus in the global warming numbers.
    • A lot of the remediation (trees etc) might actually make for more carbon in the atmosphere rather than less
    • The carbon footprint numbers seem made up, as lots of poorer areas are poor because of mismangment. cooking over open fires is a lot more poluting than cooking with gas or electric, even when the electric is produced by coal fired boilers
    • the worst poluters always get exemptions, as witness the Copenhagen conference where everyone with authority had to have a stretch limo and an enterauge of 50
    • Those promoting it don't really seem to care that much about the environment, as much as they care about having their hands on our throats

    • NF3 is one of the most efficacious greenhouse gases in existence. It does not occur in nature and is completely man-made. We are spewing it into the atmosphere at 1000s of times the percentage rate of CO2. It is 17,000 times more potent a greenhouse gas than CO2, it is poisonous to every living thing on the planet, it stays in the atmosphere for more than 700 years, but there's no move whatsoever to regulate it or even inventory it. And when you talk about it, watermelons go completely ape-shit.

    Warmist junk science is neither reproducible on demand and in context, falsifiable, nor does it have any static control model other than computer models, which are only as perfect as the imperfect people who input their data and cannot possibly account for every possible variable.

    So you people say. Yet the scientists who study the subject state just the opposite. Now who do you think that I consider the most competant to speak on the subject.

    Can you refute any of the below? If so, please feel free:
    It really doesn't matter much, since you cannot even SPELL "competent" much less even know what it is.

    how very sad that so many need to cast Hate on science to continue to hold politcal ideas that have failed.

    No one's casting any "hate" but some are definitely attacking a cult you have been programmed to call science.

    Care to refute any of this? I'll wait:
