Interested in climate change? I've got a Stack of articles, right here! kajm.deviantart.com/gallery/33…

If you disagree with something that I or anyone has said, please QUOTE THE EXACT WORDS YOU DISAGREE WITH. This avoids many misunderstandings.

If you cannot do that, then don't be surprised if I don't want to be bothered with you.


To all the rest, Come on in, Read and Learn! That is all I ask. I do not claim special knowledge; in fact, I freely admit that I have a long way to go.
But with a degree in geology and 30 years of following this, I think I have a pretty good idea of which way to go.
In the end, which way you choose to believe, is up to you. But you should base your decision upon the facts, not upon hype.

Ever considered doing a piece on this? It's not new, exactly, but still. With all the negativity about wind/solar farms, it would be nice to have something positive. IE, green technology done right.

The 1-liter car is exactly that. Not feasible in some areas, but in the city? It's a diesel/plug-in hybrid that gets 260 mpg, and as a bonus, it can travel on battery alone for a good 50 miles. Perfect for city drivers in mild climate areas.

Like I said: green technology done right.

Edit: Plus, it's a Volkswagen. Volkswagens are awesome.

That might be an amusing piece to do. Those who disagree with my stance on things won't know what to make of it! :D

There's actually a whole resource page from Popular Technology on it: z4.invisionfree.com/Popular_Te…

Most of it is meant to debunk "green" tech, but some of it consists of examples of truly environmentally friendly tech examples.

I was quite interested by the Hilary Clinton quote. I had no idea that Democrats of all people have been against the use of ethanol since 2002 and earlier.

Wait. I'm confused. So do you think climate change is a hoax?

No. The climate is shifting, just as it has always done. About 100 or so years ago, the idea arose that human-generated CO2 was accelerating that shift. The theory of 'man-made' global warming rose from that. They worked out a series of premises / events, which they expected would occur as the climate shifted.

Some of those events are happening, but that is Because the climate is shifting, not because humans had anything to do with it. Other, Major events, such as the Tropical Hot Spot, have flat-out NOT happened. The atmosphere is not doing what they said it would do.  When reality diverges from the theory, there must be something wrong with the theory.

A lot of research has been / is coming out, which indicates that natural forces- such as the sun- are having much more effect on the climate than the 'man-made' component. For some reason, nearly all of that research is being ignored / ridiculed. Those pushing the theory of 'man-made' global warming appear to want us to focus strictly upon what they claim will be happening, even as the shift in climate continues to diverge further from what they predicted.

One way to make it sound like skeptics are being anti-science / global warming, is to claim they call the current shift in climate a 'hoax.' That allows them to bring in vicious slurs such as 'conspiracy theorists' and 'paid by 'Big Oil'.' People have lost their jobs / tenure at universities, because they are skeptics.

There may be commenters on some of the pieces I have put up, who use the word 'hoax.' I do Not, because the climate IS shifting. I can't help what they think, but I must also be careful about correcting anyone who uses the term. Well, on my side of the argument anyway. When someone who knows nothing about myself, or especially, nothing about the science I am presenting, comes in claiming I talk about a 'hoax' and that I am a 'dingbat,' well you may have noticed I don't take to such IGNORANCE very well.

I never said anything about you being a dingbat and I when I say hoax I'm refering to those who don't belive in global warming at all.
