If all the industrialized countries reduced their CO2 emissions by 100% by 2050, then according to the IPCC last published climate sensitivity of 3C, we would avert by 2100 a temperature rise of 0.28C. Which rise of 0.28C, compared to the way average temperature increases, is equivalent to moving 10 miles south

Interesting comment someone made as a reply to that repub article.

Fire away.


How about efforts to keep the Yellowstone supervolcano from erupting? I recall reading that eons ago a volcano erupted in the Pacific northwest and deposited several feet of ash in Missouri.

Bruce,
Thanks for your gratuitous dialog! Honestly I haven't educated myself on the specifics about co2's. When I drive by LA I can see its effects, and know its not good. I don't need a PhD to understand that. I try to DO my part by working close to wher I live and only consuming 20 bucks worth of gas a week. Riding my bike every chance I get, and recycling everything.
There is a lot of need for talk and dialog to bring the masses up to speed. Since the money grubbing oil tycoons and politicians arent going to do it. And YOU and a few others are doing a FINE job! And that is work,I know. But I also wonder if there's other things you might be DOING to circumvent the circumstance that might be educational to us all? Do you know that Saudi Arabia has so many oil wells that they jus burn off the extra oil they can't barrel? Check out the Al-jazeere web sight sometime.
Thanks for your lessons! I'll work harder on my arguementive posts..
For now I'll go back to my "sticks" and "nails" and being the best "California Framer"
that ever strapped on bags, and what I know..

I've personally processed ash samples collected in Missouri that were erupted from the Yellowstone hot spot over 2 million years ago. I'm doing everything I can to prevent another massive eruption.

uh, no you can't. I believe what you are seeing is mostly NO2 and particulate matter.

Interesting side note, even the Yellowstone caldera supereruption at 2my probably released less CO2 than a single year of human activities (Gerlach 2011 in EOS). Our 35 gigatons each year is massive, it's hard to fathom the folks who blandly declare humans are tiny and couldn't be changing the planet.

Look at all the probabilitys and assumptions in that one.

Ok Ed follow the link below to this guy Johnsons web site and click on his challenge to blackbody radiation. Have a wonderful day.

Blublockr, Bruce is dishing out his usual psycho babble stream of bald faced lies. The EPA is no authority with what his happening up here. Take the link below to the University of Alaska Fairbanks site, then scroll down and click on New Paper-The First Decade Of The New Century: A Cooling Trend For Most Of Alaska.

Most of them are Ed, in a different sort of way. People who have pets and allow them a measure of freedom sense this. Anyway, I've had a lengthy excerpt of Mr. Johnson's, shall we say work, since my education session over black radiation with you some months back. I spared the embarrassment till now, but since you asked...

Has anyone been checking the status of solar cycle 24. From what I've read the magnetic poles are about to flip, signaling the start of the decent to minimum. Every indication seems to point to the weakest cycle in a perhaps a century or more. This combined with the negative phase of the PDO and NAO should be quite a test of the counter hypothesis that CO2 is but a minor player in climate change.

After Ed demolishes the paper that Rick threw out, the irony of what Rick posts in response is, well, laughable. And actually a bit sad.

... Cancer. Your science does nothing to cease it. Nothing.


Let me show you what blithering nonsense your whole premise is.



Science invented the radiation treatment that cured my cancer, you numb-nut.


Now go warm up some milk and go to bed like a good little boy.

Meanwhile ... the American Geophysical Union (about 61,000 members) has just revised its statement on climate change. Here's the title and first paragraph:

Human-induced climate change requires urgent action

Human activities are changing Earth’s climate. At the global level,atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases have increased sharply since the Industrial Revolution. Fossil fuel burning dominates this increase. Human-caused increases in greenhouse gases are responsible for most of the observed global average surface warming of roughly 0.8°C (1.5°F) over the past 140 years. Because natural processes cannot quickly remove some of these gases (notably carbon dioxide) from the atmosphere, our past, present, and future emissions will influence the climate system for millennia.

What the hell is it with some people that they think they can just open their mouths and let the most outrageous, baseless and offensive claims fly out without any consequences?


It is called education,Bruce,or in this case the lack of one.There certainly is a consensus ,[on this thread ]of who has one and who has not.

I know i am going to die,but it would be something to be able to come back and see the grandkids of the 3% ,stabbing their grandfathers graves.

Go ahead kids ,call me names.

You know, Ed if you could get past the shet covering the outside of the Johnson bone there was a marrow of mathematics. As you so amply point out, I am incapable of comprehending that language. I would have hoped that your scientific curiosity would have prompted you to at least sample it and to tell us if it was as rotten as the exterior.

On to the solutions for this imaginary and greatly hyped problem. Gill pointed out that if all anthropogenic emissions immediately ceased the impact would be virtually non existent. Bruce you expressed interest in policy before-lets here your solutions. And Ed why and how would your carbon tax benefit the population?
