  1. How is this gaslighting? ”Global terrestrial gross primary production (GPP)—the rate of carbon fixation by photosynthesis—is estimated to have risen by (31 ± 5)% since 1900, but the relative contributions of different putative drivers to this increase are not well known. Here we identify the rising atmospheric CO2 concentration as the dominant driver.” The argument I am making is that CO2 is causing plants to grow and deserts to shrink. What is your position?
  2. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/gcb.14950 ”Global terrestrial gross primary production (GPP)—the rate of carbon fixation by photosynthesis—is estimated to have risen by (31 ± 5)% since 1900, but the relative contributions of different putative drivers to this increase are not well known.

  3. Here in Happy Valley we are running a real world experiment on the effectiveness or lack there of, of lockdowns. This past weekend the Penn State kids celebrated the annual “State Paddy’s Day” an orgy of drunken debauchery celebrated the weekend after Dance Marathon (the world’s largest, student run, philanthropy). Since the bars are shut down and campus activities limited because of COVID, the party went downtown to houses and apartments. Few masks were seen as drunken students made their way from party to party packing themselves into overcrowded rooms and balconies. If the lefties are correct, we should see a tremendous increase in CORONA virus in the next week or so followed by a spike in hospitalizations and deaths from an overwhelmed health care system. https://images.app.goo.gl/oCDDtqjQ5upRkkkc9 I will give an update upon my return from Disney World in two weeks.
  4. I didn’t complain, I just pointed out the hypocrisy. BillV gave me a one day time-out for posting a graph from the state of Texas. I’m not even going to show him the graph that shows the US using more fossil fuels than ever before and the utter failure for wind and solar to make SIGNIFICANT strides to replace them in the foreseeable future and the ever increasing levels of atmospheric CO2. That would just be mean.
  5. It sounds like 2012 all over again, you were wrong then you are wrong now. But don’t let that stop you. Obviously you are not familiar the idiom “there is no education in the second kick of a mule.”
  6. Only if you lean right. If you are a leftie you can get away with calling someone a racist, an *sshole and a f*cking c*unt. (Not an exaggeration) I got a “time out” for posting a graph from a governmental source. (It contradicted with the moderators world view)
  7. Let me help you out. “Looking at remote sensing data from NASA’s satellites, we’ve discovered that over the last two decades, the Earth has increased its green leaf area by a total of 5 percent, which is roughly five and a half million square kilometers—an increase equivalent to the size of the entire Amazon rain forest.” Are you going to persist with the red herrings or are you ready to admit the obvious.
  8. Goalposts move? Did you read the title of my original post? Or did you just have trouble understanding it?
  9. I wasn’t making up the fact that CO2 has caused a greening of the planet. Or would you like to argue otherwise?
  10. I should have said “you guys” as in the global warmists. It was a favorite around this forum and was routinely used to explain cold snaps and large snowstorms. Now that that “theory” has been conclusively debunked, it has the climate alarmists angrily grasping for a new explanation. It will interesting to see if the current five year pause in global temperatures persists this year, even as the rise in CO2 continues unabated.
  11. Isn’t that what you said about the record cold gripping the Northern Hemisphere? Oh no, that would be “warm heating cold”
  12. They are just pissed that Mother Nature usurped the concept of “going green” and kicked their little theory in the balls
  13. There shouldn’t be an argument, the planet is greener. It just pisses off the “great minds” that they were wrong about the catastrophic impact greater CO2 levels would have. Prediction: fewer polar bears Observation: more polar bears Prediction: deserts would expand Observation: deserts are shrinking Prediction: increase in famine, food shortage Observation: record food production Prediction: more floods, droughts, hurricanes and wildfires Observation: no statistically significant change in floods, droughts, hurricanes and wildfires I could go on but you get the idea
  14. Wow, settle down guys. How about something with which we can all agree? Because of the fertilization effect of CO2 we live in a greener and more verdant planet.
  15. When I asked for a current example of systemic racism and not one from the 19th or 20th century, I should have included the 18th century.....my bad.
