re: Global Warning Update! - Taxing Authority
[quote]So we're polluting waterways, soil, and the air and it's a problem, but the air part has no impact on temps? [/quote]You'lol need an EPA permit for a strawman this large. A few PPM of arsenic in the water is far more deadly and serious than a metric ton of CO2. There is no rational eq...

[quote]Modeling is not science [/quote]Bullsart it isn't. What isn't scientific is taking model results as absolute truth and without regard to the inputs, residuals, and relative uncertanties. That is NOT what most modelers do. That is (however) what evangelist climate "modelers" do. Do...

[quote]So you're saying that geology and related fields have not been [b]accurate enough[/b] at deducing past climate temps si[/quote]Define "accurate enough".

[quote]Who cares if water vapor has a greater effect on climate change than CO2 and methane? [/quote]Oh dear. Someone clearly doesn't understand basic thermodynamics.
