nothing like poor women blowing themselves up because you took away the water it takes for them to bath their children

to produce support for killing like dogs
americans who took cameras into the workplace to record their managment instructing them how to properly skin an animal who is still conscious...

So the Chief, are you going to admit that you were Knotts?

When you admit that you are the lead scam con artist at the Air Quality Control Board down there in OC pilferaging the Orange County tax payers moneys with your AGW/GCC bs.

Allow me to reiterate my earlier post regarding the latest "highest CO2 in history" crap that most of you ALARMIST are desciminating.

Various proxy measurements have been used to attempt to determine atmospheric carbon dioxide levels millions of years in the past. These include boron and carbon isotope ratios in certain types of marine sediments, and the number of stomata observed on fossil plant leaves. While these measurements give much less precise estimates of carbon dioxide concentration than ice cores, there is evidence for very high CO2 volume concentrations between 200 and 150 Ma of over 3,000 ppm and between 600 and 400 Ma of over 6,000 ppm.[7] In more recent times, atmospheric CO2 concentration continued to fall after about 60 Ma. About 34 Ma, the time of the Eocene–Oligocene extinction event and when the Antarctic ice sheet started to take its current form, CO2 is found to have been about 760 ppm,[45] and there is geochemical evidence that volume concentrations were less than 300 ppm by about 20 Ma. Carbon dioxide decrease, with a tipping point of 600 ppm, was the primary agent forcing Antarctic glaciation.[46] Low CO2 concentrations may have been the stimulus that favored the evolution of C4 plants, which increased greatly in abundance between 7 and 5 Ma.


In billion-year timescales it is predicted that plant, and therefore animal, life on land will die off altogether as by that time most of the remaining carbon in the atmosphere will be sequestered underground and natural releases of CO2 by radioactivity-driven tectonic activity will have continued to slow down.[47] The loss of plant life would also result in the eventual loss of oxygen. Some microbes are capable of photosynthesis at concentrations of CO2 of a few parts per million and so the last life forms would probably disappear finally due to the rising temperatures and loss of the atmosphere when the sun becomes a red giant some four-billion years from now.[48]

Read the last paragraph Wessh#t, Chiloe, Mountainlion and the rest of your ecofreak sheepheads. Regardless the amount of C02 we humans pump into the atmosphere, eventually the planet will shed itself of ALL plant life. NOT from too much C02. Rather from NOT ENOUGH as it will all be sucked up by the earth itself and the plant life will all go with it. When that occurs, say bye bye to all the 02. Evolution at it's best. The Universe kicking some ass as it does so well infinitely.

I want to hear him deny it, then I'll post the evidence, even though it's obvious from the banning and The Chief's appearance the next day. Imagine that!

Abstract
Ocean acidification is predicted to negatively impact the reproduction of many marine species, either by reducing fertilization success or diverting energy from reproductive effort. While recent studies have demonstrated how ocean acidification will affect larval and juvenile fishes, little is known about how increasing partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2) and decreasing pH might affect reproduction in adult fishes. We investigated the effects of near-future levels of pCO2 on the reproductive performance of the cinnamon anemonefish, Amphiprion melanopus, from the Great Barrier Reef, Australia. Breeding pairs were held under three CO2 treatments (Current-day Control (430μatm), Moderate (584μatm) and High (1032μatm)) for a 9-month period that included the summer breeding season. Unexpectedly, increased CO2 dramatically stimulated breeding activity in this species of fish. Over twice as many pairs bred in the Moderate (67% of pairs) and High (55%) compared to the Control (27%) CO2 treatment. Pairs in the High CO2 group produced double the number of clutches per pair and 67% more eggs per clutch compared to the Moderate and Control groups. As a result, reproductive output in the High group was 82% higher than the Control group and 50% higher than the Moderate group. Despite the increase in reproductive activity, there was no difference in adult body condition between the three treatment groups. There was no significant difference in hatchling length between the treatment groups, but larvae from the High CO2 group had smaller yolks than Controls. This study provides the first evidence of the potential effects of ocean acidification on key reproductive attributes of marine fishes and, contrary to expectations, demonstrates an initially stimulatory (hormetic) effect in response to increased pCO2. However, any long-term consequences of increased reproductive effort on individuals or populations remains to be determined.

ssso from polar bears to penguins to reef fish it seems the fauna is having reproductive festivals in these dire times of global warming. Seems they are digging it.. Hope they dont read and believe the news on most channels lmao! it will kill their buzz.

Not that surprising. Many lower life forms produce more offspring when under stress... much higher mortality rate though

or more CO2 equals better hunting equals better off spring rates equals greater populations.

and then theres this inconvenient factoid for ya warmers..



OVER the past 15 years air temperatures at the Earth’s surface have been flat while greenhouse-gas emissions have continued to soar. The world added roughly 100 billion tonnes of carbon to the atmosphere between 2000 and 2010. That is about a quarter of all the CO₂ put there by humanity since 1750. And yet, as James Hansen, the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, observes, “the five-year mean global temperature has been flat for a decade.”

You believe in GCC and want to save the P-Bears. Then you must not believe in the law and science of EVOLUTION. Cus there is absolutely nothing in the law of Evolution that specifies nor limits the forcing of extinction. Now that is pure hypocrisy. Take one and not the other. You and your eco wanna-be hippie don't shave your pit/legs crowd aint gonna save shet. Fact is, the lifestyle you engorge in as a human in the Bay Area is another example of your pure wanna-be hypocrisy. No matter how much you drive that clan Prius in the electric mode. Still requires fossil fuel to power that motor. Hypocrite.
