re: President Trump on wind-generated electricity - Tyrusrex

It's such a no brainer of a win win for conservatives and liberals. For liberals it's a no-brainer in that they want to get off of fossil fuels as quickly as po...

[quote]Unfortunately that simply isn't true. Even over the last millennium there have been variations that are not well understood. Regarding your observations of the last 10Kyrs, the relative plateau appears to represent a variance as opposed to past maximums. We don't understand why, much less...

[quote]Why are the people y'all accuse of spreading the hoax of climate change the same ones in the lab right now creating new and improving plants and algae that help reduce co2?

Climate Denier is someone who doesn't believe either the planet is warming, the planet isn't warming at an unusual rate, or that man is responsible for the warming. They're basically the fat woman at the Doctor's office who argues with their Doctor that their obesity has nothing to do with their ...
