• Will nuclear fusion technology mean we won't have to worry about global warming?

    Best answer: Unlike most alarmists, I am confident of our ability to harness new cleaner technologies in the future and probably the near future.

    Best answer: Unlike most alarmists, I am confident of our ability to harness new cleaner technologies in the future and probably the near future. I remember almost 50 years ago when they talked about fusion but I also remember so many other technologies that have exploded since then. It is true that fusion is a tougher nut to crack than once believed but we know it is real and we know its potential. We just have to figure out how to get it to work cost effectively.

    Alarmists tend to dismiss it with a yes but it will 30 or 50 years, so they seem imply that we have to do something now. It boils down to them wanting their agenda now. In fact a half degree warming before we develop the technologies isn't that scary to me and I suspect it won't even be that much but then again I haven't been programed to think any warming and all CO2 is bad. I think eventually it will likely be cheaper but maybe there will be other technologies as well that end up being cheaper.

  • How would a 10 foot rise in sea level put all coastal cities underwater?

    I just read that and even though I believe in climate change it simply doesn't make sense to me. Wouldn't it just mean that cities would be 10 more feet inland?

  • Is the World Bank making a good decision to stop financing oil and gas projects in two years to stop global warming?

    Best answer: I saw that link in your previous question. I have come to believe that Trump was right about many of the US's trade deals. They were more about redistribution than fair trade. The World Bank is yet another mechanism for redistribution. http://www.worldbank.org/ Just check out their link. They aren't... show more

    They aren't about making good decisions. They are about promoting socialism.
    I hate to sound so cynical but I have to give the facts as I see them.

  • Why do people who call themselves conservatives think that the only solution to global warming is Communism?

    Best answer: Fear. They think that addressing global warming will end their way of life. They think not using the fossil-fuel-based technology they are using right now (internal combustion engine cars, coal power plants, and so on) will mean that they don't have transportation, or any way to heat or cool their homes, run... show more
    Best answer: Fear.

    They think that addressing global warming will end their way of life. They think not using the fossil-fuel-based technology they are using right now (internal combustion engine cars, coal power plants, and so on) will mean that they don't have transportation, or any way to heat or cool their homes, run their TVs, and so on. They're only seeing what they're being expected to give up, and not what will replace it. They think that "different" necessarily means "worse".

    And, because of that fear, they automatically reject all of the solutions people offer to deal with the problem, usually by labeling them as the worst vaguely plausible thing they can think of. For conservatives above a certain age, that almost inevitably means "communism".

  • Is there any way do reduce the carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere, other than planting trees/plants?

    Best answer: The concentration of CO2 has been drastically reduced by plants and marine organisms using photosynthesis. These organisms emit O2 to our great fortune. CO2 is at a concentration of 400 ppm and O2 is more like 210,000 ppm. Obviously those organisms using the sun for energy and producing oxygen as a waste are the... show more
    Best answer: The concentration of CO2 has been drastically reduced by plants and marine organisms using photosynthesis. These organisms emit O2 to our great fortune. CO2 is at a concentration of 400 ppm and O2 is more like 210,000 ppm. Obviously those organisms using the sun for energy and producing oxygen as a waste are the dominant affect on the environment. A billion years ago, we didn't have the O2 in the atmosphere. So we have plants and marine organisms largely driving the concentrations of CO2 and free oxygen in the atmosphere and oxygen is over 500 times as much. If you halve the CO2 concentration to 200 ppm, plants begin to struggle. If you double it, plants do much better. I'm just trying to put CO2 and O2 into perspective. There is wacko idea our there trying to call CO2 evil and bad. In fact, it is the cornerstone of life on our planet. Instead of believing everything you are told, learn to be skeptical. Instead of thinking about things the way the media and the way those that want your money want you to think, you should think with your own head.

    Dimwit Anon thinks terms like global warming and climate change make perfect sense. Of course he does. You have to be pretty stupid not to understand that global warming without the term anthropogenic (man-made) is gibberish but ignorant trolls like Anon don't mind if other ignorant dunces think all warming must be from humans. It isn't science. It is a cult and Anon is a full blown member. I learned my science by studying real science books and earning a geology degree. Anon thinks science is what he read on left wing blogs.

  • Why is it illegal to shoot Golden Eagles but okay to kill thousands of them with windmills?

    Best answer: Obviously shooting them is targeting the eagles and I support that being illegal . Those who build windmills aren't trying to kill eagles.

    Best answer: Obviously shooting them is targeting the eagles and I support that being illegal . Those who build windmills aren't trying to kill eagles. Honestly, I don't know of eagles getting killed by windmills. I used to occasionally work in a refinery and it was a killing field for gulls and other birds. I think they would fly at night and not see the above ground tanks because to the birds it just looked like more sky and they would crash. If this is also true with windmills, it seems they could paint them to make it more obvious to the birds. I confess I don't know why windmills kill birds. I have heard they chop them up but having seen lots of windmills I find that kind of hard to believe.

  • Why does simply accepting the science of global warming make someone left wing?

    Best answer: Good question. The global warming issue has a scientific aspect and a political aspect. It is important to keep them separate.

    Best answer: Good question. The global warming issue has a scientific aspect and a political aspect. It is important to keep them separate. One can accept the premise of AGW and simply let the private sector adapt. That is a perfectly reasonable position for a scientifically literate right-winger to take. Not all of us march to the beat of evangelical Christians. Some of us even believe the earth is more than 6,000 years old.

    The discussion only becomes right wing/left wing when it moves to government's role. One can argue that AGW is a serious problem AND government has to intervene in a big way, that's a left wing position. Accepting or rejecting the science is one thing. Advocating radical government makes it left wing.

    Best answer: The planet isn't in a fight with global warming. The planet doesn't have a fever. The planet is a giant rock with a mostly iron core. We have a a dusting of life on the surface of the planet that generally does a lot better with the extra CO2 and the warming. As more time passes, the more it becomes obvious that those who predicted catastrophic warming were wrong. It isn't like they just made an innocent mistake either. Mostly they were liars that have been proved wrong.

    When you are arguing for a political cause, you use idiotic and sycophantic anthropomorphic gibberish so your gullible simple minded constituency can then repeat, yeah we need to help the planet win the battle against Exxon and the Koch Brothers.

    This is the guy that was 16 yo having a sexual affair with a 41 yo cougar that he later married but that is OK because he is a socialist. If he were American and a Republican, the outrage would be off the scale from the usual suspects. I find it kind of funny personally and really weird. It does make you wonder why anybody would listen to his advice.
