Do volcanoes next. Then lithium waste. The same people that block nuclear are the same people that turn a blind eye to China.


Volcanoes - has there been a significant global eruption in the last 50 years that coincide with the significant uptick in atmospheric CO2? Don’t think so.

Lithium - huge issue and I don’t think batteries are the issue to anything. Small scale of Tesla cars cannot be duplicated for global use. I’ve shorted Tesla several times, and gotten burned. Still not impressed with the company.

Pro nuclear here as well.

Since the ban on so-called halocarbons the ozone layer has shown signs of recovery, but it is a slow process and it will take until the 2060s or 70s for a complete phasing-out of the depleting substances. During recent years with normal weather conditions, the ozone hole has typically grown to a maximum of 20 million sq km (8 million sq miles).

Fill a glass with ice and water. Leave it out to melt. Get back and let us know if the glass overflows.

It will definitely overflow.

If you fill the glass then the water will reach the very top of the glass. The ice will be sticking up above the edge of the glass, and when the ice melts the water will overflow the glass.

But what does that have to do with this discussion? Nothing. We are talking about ice that if melted would raise sea levels.It’s all hysteria, but your example is not helpful.

What he said

See archimedes principal

*Principle

And we call glaciers glaciers instead of icebergs because they are not currently floating. Do I need to spell out for you how to apply Archimedes' Principle in the case of a glacier melting or sliding off the land?

First off. Ice floats, secondly it will gradually melt off, the atmosphere will suck it in, and in the end will be a nothin burger.

Fear mongering by the media like always..

Also from my link…

quote:

Vincent-Henri Peuch, the service’s director, told the Guardian: “We cannot really say at this stage how the ozone hole will evolve. However, the hole of this year is remarkably similar to the one of 2020, which was among the deepest and the longest-lasting – it closed around Christmas – in our records since 1979.

“The 2021 ozone hole is now among the 25% largest in our records since 1979, but the process is still under way. We will keep monitoring its development in the next weeks. A large or small ozone hole in one year does not necessarily mean that the overall recovery process is not going ahead as expected, but it can signal that special attention needs to be paid and research can be directed to study the reasons behind a specific ozone hole event.”


Translation: we don’t know what the frick is going on. We thought our actions were the only determinant of the ozone hole but maybe we were wrong.

This is why knowledge is important- Martha’s Vinyard is 311ft above sea level at its highest elevation and has an average elevation of 72ft above sea level. By contrast, Baton Rouge has an average elevation of around 60ft, with everything south of BR MUCH lower. Moron.

All of you climate turds don’t get it

Even if you are right, I don’t care if the sea level rises. It’s an overblown issue. The super Caldera under Yellowstone could explode or we could get hit by an asteroid tomorrow. Either would be magnitudes worse than the worst projection of climate change.

The worst possible thing we could do is handcuff our technological advancement by destroying the economy like the progressives want.

This is an engineering problem that will work itself out if we let it.

This is why common sense is important



You think Obama’s house is 72ft above sea level?

Now, put a cylinder of ice the diameter of your glass and 25% taller than the glass and tell me if your counter is wet.

The principals of volume, density, and buoyancy are very simple and simply prove that even a large volume of floating glaciers melting will absolutely raise the mean water surface elevation of the world's lakes and oceans. It's simply indisputable.

The question is, "How much will it raise mean sea level?" The answer is somewhere between cataclysmic and insignificant.

It may very well be overblown, but I have a conservationist nature.

Sure sure. Still probably shouldn't trash the place in the meantime.

Some progressive who cares about glaciers. Some time before the glaciers melt.

Problem is infrastructure is necessarily involved, and some folks bitch and moan about such things.

Huh, the level of the water rises.

That's a subjective as a journalist these days. The Earth has cyclic weather patterns


Not to mention we’ve only been scientifically studying weather climate for 160 years. Accurately, 60? If you would call your weatherman being consistently wrong accurate.

Truth is, we have no clue how climate change will affect our infrastructure. Just another chapter in the fearmonger’s Bible

Badger have you ever been to Martha’s Vineyard? Yes the sea may rise but that is not the place I would worry about the water rising.
