Now, every one knows the warmer Earth gets the more active the plates will be. More earth quakes and increased volcanic activity.
That's a bit of a stretch with no evidence to support it. Not sure how you can say "every one knows."

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Metaphorically speaking we are challenged to redesign the plane we are on in mid-flight. It's worse than that even. It's like needing to redesign the plane in mid-flight while the pilot has the door to the cockpit locked, 40% of the passengers on the plane are hell bent on letting it crash just so ...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

So, are you saying there have been , and are, NO trends ? At various periods there have have been cooling trends, ( 1940 - 1975) and other periods warming trends (1980-2000), ? The whole AGW debate is based on a trend .! Maybe you missed the facts stated by those eminent , qualified scientists, ......

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

The difference is the effect from “Urban Heat Islands” where most of the original temperature stations now find themselves due to urban development over the last 100+ years. If that is the case, then why is the warming trend even greater in the arctic and polar regions? No big cities up there. Urba...

Some points to keep in mind from the video to keep the discussion running true: What State and Federal incentives are being leveraged to offer the bid price of $20/ MWh for the solar pv. Is the Federal Government still subsidizing new grid scale solar at $33/ MWH as it has been? And how much more i...

You've gone back to being a type 1 denier - "the climate isn't warming, stupid!"
