• What is it that you deny? There are multiple steps in the pro-AGW argument:?

    1) The average temperature of the Earth has increased in the past 70 years. 2) Consider a column of air, lit from above by sunshine. If you increase the fraction of CO2 in the air, the ground temperature increases. 3) On average, each human burns a ton of fossil fuel per year, emitting CO2. 4) The measured... show more
    1) The average temperature of the Earth has increased in the past 70 years. 2) Consider a column of air, lit from above by sunshine. If you increase the fraction of CO2 in the air, the ground temperature increases. 3) On average, each human burns a ton of fossil fuel per year, emitting CO2. 4) The measured increase in CO2 is consistent with about half of the human-emitted CO2 dwelling in the atmosphere for many decades. 5) Complex computer models of the Earth's climate suggest that if the measured increase in atmospheric CO2 continues, temperatures will be several degrees hotter at the end of this century. 6) If the few degrees of warming due to CO2 causes the net release of methane and other greenhouse gasses, the maximum effect in the next few centuries could be more than 10 C. 7) Global warming by more than 10 C would likely result in the extinction of a majority of species and a vast reduction in human population.

  • Why would Exxon Mobil support the scientific consensus on global warming if there was even a slight chance they were wrong?

    Best answer: They have known for a long time, but the top brass gets multi million dollar bonuses based on profit. Companies can, but are not required to, concern themselves with social issues.

    Best answer: They have known for a long time, but the top brass gets multi million dollar bonuses based on profit. Companies can, but are not required to, concern themselves with social issues.

    Their current statement is in order to say in future court cases that they publicly accepted the science as fact and that they simply followed the law. Despite them lobbying for more fossil fuel subsidies, and against government taking action on AGW that could hurt profitability and thus bonuses. There is some good news though, they have come under pressure from investors on efforts to address global warming.

    Best answer: Will you look who are now the deniers. They are denying that Gore ever said it. Ha! Ha! Ha! We went over that a long time ago and we had many many presentations where predicted the end of ice at the North pole. And the time he predicted ranges from 2014 to 2030. Just look it up. Enter 'Al Gore ice free' in your search engine. We have all these 'smart people' that know all about Global Warming but don't know the simplest thing about using the internet. You have to lead them by the nose and then even after that they will deny it. These people are illustrating their low I. Q.

    As to your question: No, I don't. Especially now that most of his predictions have definitely proven false. Plus I don't see him buying up any real estate at the north pole. If he was so sure he would put a club med up there. He'd corner the market. He'd have to kick Santa Claus out of there but Gore has done worse.

    No I don't see the ice melting under present conditions. Maybe if an underwater volcano erupted or something out of the normal happened it possibly could.

    But let us face it. Ole Al is gettin' rich by scaring people. So he'll say anything to increase his wealth.

  • What EXACTLY is climate change?

    Hi, I hear about climate change on TV all the time, but, I don't understand what it is. 1. Is it the earth becoming hot by the sun? 2. Why is climate change so important?

    Best answer: In an ideal world, yes. But in an ideal world we wouldn't have to either.

    Globalism is going to happen, people will try to make money legally or illegally, this is true under communism, capitalism or anything in between. Furthermore, corruption is rife everywhere, even in Ontario Canada we see the newly elected right wing leader, who ran on a platform against bureaucracy and government overreach, trying to get the police to buy him a nice new camper van according to his specifications. But an 11 dollar and 23 cents (US) minimum wage is too much. And Canada is ranked as a functional democracy. (unlike the US)

    That does not mean a revenue neutral carbon tax does not work. Again Canada is giving it's citizens a full share of the money collected, with the rural community getting far more than people in urban area's. Even then there is still opposition. So I cannot see people supporting handing money to countries when there is a distinct possibility that some of the money going to corrupt politicians around the world. Countries can put in their own carbon taxes if they choose to and have the countries independently audited. Countries failing to comply could be subject to duties equivalent to a carbon tax.

    The fossil fuel industry is trying to delay action, they donate to politicians who are friendly to the industry, politicians who support subsidies for their industry and getting government to impose duties on competitors. Exxon does support a small carbon tax, in exchange for lenient regulation. Trump put a 55% tax on solar and is toying with the idea to use a war act to force utilities to buy their electricity at inflated prices from coal and nuclear plants.

    Deniers are claiming that the French In France the government had to reverse a carbon tax( which revenues were meant to subsidize green industries like wind and solar, the shut down of 14 nuclear power plants, and eventually shut down all French coal plants by 2022) because protestors were concerned the money would be used to subsidize a tax cuts for the rich. Government reversed the carbon tax, but protests are continuing, below are some of their demands.

    1. Housing for all homeless people
    2. A more progressive tax system
    3. Minimum wage of 1,300€/month
    4. Measures to protect small businesses (stop building malls, no more “big box” stores), more parking spaces in downtowns
    5. Government program for insulating homes & other buildings
    6. Big businesses (McDonald’s, Google, Amazon...) should pay big taxes & small businesses pay small ones
    7. Same health insurance system for all (including self-employed)

    The list goes on...

    So now we see Sagebrush, who hates equality and communism, supporting the yellow vests. Go figure.

    So no, a global carbon tax would not work But the US imposing a revenue neutral one and imposing import duties based on carbon pollution would work.

  • Are the French Yellow Jackets showing us that global warming alarmism isn't as wide spread as the media wants us to believe?

    Best answer: The fuel tax kicked it off. Every few years, the French get all riled up about something and the sh!t hits the fan. Most of the people don't really care about the issue and just go out to vandalize stuff. It's the French. It's what they do. Great cooks though.
