Stop talking about burning ants! I stopped doing that along time ago and don't want to start again!

Fun fact I learned on stoopidtaco several years ago... you can burn other things with a magnifying glass... or your wide angle lens... if you happen to forget your lighter but have the other things.

It is especially effective now that the Earth is warmer.

Yes, a magnifying glass works quite well on a windy day.

That's all I have to offer to this argument. I'm not a scientist so I leave the science to those with the prerequisite background.

Fun reading though.

Hey, I even heard you can start a fire by forming ice into a lens. You just need some really clear ice...

Now that's a survival tip if I ever heard one!

You can even shape it! There usually aren't ants walking around though when there's ice

This prolly wouldn't work, it's got bubbles of ancient air.

How many comets would have to strike Earth to equal Man's CO2 output? It would be a ridiculous overwhelming number of course. Depends on the comet size, but the impacts would be harsh.....kind of what an ant might feel like when........

This is fun;

But how do you know that is ancient air? Do we really know the "absorption capability" of ancient air if nobody was around to measure it back then?

Dunno about comets but an EOS article a few years ago estimated that the Yellowstone Caldera super-eruption, which would devastate N America if it happened today, released CO2 comparable to one year of human activities.

Adding ~35 gigatons per year, year after year, is a lot!

It crackles pleasantly when it melts in your drink.

Chiloe!? Are you still on?

What are your thoughts on GMO food/Monsanto, and fluoride in drinking water, please?

And if you care to, your thoughts on geo-engineering?

My thoughts on geo-engineering are that too many people are thinking about the inevitabilty of it. It's all too scary to think about. Not the future I was thinking about as a kid.

Small wonder Greenland is melting.

Got your poles reversed. It's Antarctic, where they burn ants with ice lenses. Sarah Palin proly saw some pengys up there though.

I have no expertise about those things. If I needed to know more, I'd start researching published studies (not websites).

And if you care to, your thoughts on geo-engineering?

Very skeptical thoughts.

Ah yes, penguins in the Arctic... from someone who disputes "the science" without offering any citations or actual information. Probably related to the easterly shift of the jet stream.

Still waiting for information that timber sale in Woodfords that you testified about.
