    Best answer: Your question raises several points:

    Yes, it may well be used as yet another way to keep track of us. As if mobile phones, Twitter, Facebook and Google were not enough.

    It also provides the possibility to control us. Remember when Tesla, remotely, updated the software of Tesla cars in Florida to give them extended range to help people fleeing the hurricane? If they have that power then they can also moce the knob the other way and ground us for as long as they like.

    Car accidents are already being caused by assassins who can hack into internal combustion engines electronic control systems to cause crashes. They will have even more control over an electric vehicle.

    Taxes are when the government thinks it can spend your money better than you can. All they need is an excuse for a new tax. CO2 is one such reason. If the tax worked and people stopped using CO2 producing vehicles then the government would just have to move the tax to something else. They seldom tolerate a tax cut.

    Best answer: Atmospheric carbon dioxide is a mild greenhouse gas that exerts a diminishing warming effect as its concentration increases.
    Earth has not warmed significantly for the past 19 years despite an 8 pct increase in atmospheric CO2, which represents 34 pct of all extra CO2 added to the atmosphere since the start of the industrial revolution.

    CO2 is a vital nutrient used by plants in photosynthesis. Increasing CO2 in the atmosphere “greens” the planet and helps feed the growing human population.

    No close correlation exists between temperature variation over the past 150 years and human-related CO2 emissions. The parallelism of temperature and CO2 increase between about 1980 and 2000 AD could be due to chance and does not necessarily indicate causation.

    Due to the properties of logarithmic curves, the rate of temperature increase is inversely proportional to the level of CO2 already in the atmosphere. The more CO2 there is at any point, the smaller the rate of temperature increase.

    As you add more CO2 to the atmosphere, the heating increase becomes smaller, not larger. This is called "decreasing returns to scale". Physical systems that have decreasing returns to scale are inherently stable.

    We do not have enough fossil fuels to drive the atmospheric level of CO2 to anywhere close to a dangerous level.

    Using all the reserves of fossil fuels now, would have little effect on global temperatures (beyond the natural warming).

  • Will global warmers accept the new study that generally rules out worst case scenarios?

    Best answer: Since I read this long after many warmers responded, I can answer with authority that they wouldn't. Even if it eliminates that which wasn't credible anyway, they will not accept it. I don't accept either. I am extremely skeptical that they eliminate the low end too. These clowns don't know if... show more

Trying to gain credibility by staking your claim to territory in the middle is often done in political arguments. It isn't any more convincing to me than listening to Lindsey Graham.

  • When global warming deniers claim that scientists are acting out of evil intentions are they not making statements about their own character?

    Maybe scientists are looking for the truth. Maybe they are trying to make our world a better place. Maybe they want to save human lives. But, to someone who doesn't care about the truth or about their fellow humans beings, it would be hard to imagine anyone acting out of pure motives.

  • Why do we keep ignoring the manmade climate change issue, when we have more than enough evidence?

    Best answer: Human industry has once again negatively altered our atmosphere. We did it once before with car exhaust.

    Best answer: Human industry has once again negatively altered our atmosphere. We did it once before with car exhaust. The nitrogen compounds made when gasoline combusts became concentrated enough to form nitric acid up in the clouds - it came down as acid rain.
    And another time our escaped air conditioning chemicals broke down the ozone in the upper atmosphere and exposed earth's surface with deadly radiation from space.
    Or another time we burned so much coal so inefficiently that it made a black smogs killing thousands.
    We've taken steps to correct all of these disasters but we're doing nothing to stop the biggest threat of all - an increasing greenhouse earth due to CO2 exhaust. That's what's happening to our beautiful planet - we're slowly gassing the planet and exterminating life.
    Our atmosphere is like the skin of an apple covering earth. If we mess it up, we're gone.

  • Whose global warming book is the better read, Al Gore or Joe Bastardi?

    Best answer: Depends on what you mean by 'better read'. Joe's book definitely is better reading. Al's book has been read by more people and scientifically scrutinized and debunked by those in the know. And if you like fiction horror stories you have to go with Al's book. However, if you want real science,... show more

    last year my friend and I were caught shoplifting at sephora and we went through counseling and sent off and were erased from the system since we were under 18 but are banned from sephora until i’m 18. i shoplifted again today and i was at urban outfitters. i concealed a tiny bottle of mario badescus drying lotion ($17) and i think an employee saw me because she kept staring at me. when i was paying for my other stuff up front, she came up and told the cashier that she was “going to be right back i’m gonna get my drink from the back” and after i paid i left (i was with the same friend from when we shoplifted last year). i want to know if the security cameras can track me down by my parents car or my face and take me to jail. i just want an honest answer please i know what i did was bad nd i feel really guilty about it so don’t tell me it was bad and reprimand me (im under 18)

    Best answer: Doesn't prove that humans have anything to do with it.

    Last I heard, England is buying up wood chips from the US and transporting them to Jolly Old England in order to meet those phony demands. Of course, they conveniently forget how much fossil fuel usage it takes to harvest and transport the wood chips. Then the fact that wood is less efficient than fossil fuels.

    Warmers traditionally cut off their noses to spite their faces. they haven't got the brains that God gave little geese.

    Best answer: 28 years ago (1989), we had 10 years to act or the planet was doomed.

    Twenty years ago (1999), James Hansen said "Empirical evidence does not lend much support to the notion that climate is headed precipitately toward more extreme heat and drought."
    In the same link was see Arctic ice was melting at an alarming rate- in 1947.
    https://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/spec...

    Ten years ago Hansen and company were sounding the alarm. Arctic ice was once again melting away to nothing. The only difference is this time we did it. Five years ago Hansen and company were explaining away the pause.
    https://judithcurry.com/2013/01/16/hanse...

    Of course climate scientists eventually got wise and tortured the numbers until they said there was no pause. Is it any wonder some of us are skeptical of the latest findings from climate scientists?
