Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

PS, are you not even a little suspicious regarding the timing and comments regarding CA fires etc, of that report.? And there is plenty of evidence as to the primary cause of wildfires.... .....and the frequency/ severity of storms As someone may well say.....FAKE NEWS...Alarm tactics? That report ...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

I did say that the known 2015-2017 GISS data is distorted by a known cause and should be excluded from your calculation. Dropping that data from the end of the time series is simple...unlike removing data from the middle of a series. Funny how you deniers want to throw out the 2015-2017 El Nino yea...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Here is the NASA data. . https://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/global-temperature/?fbclid=IwAR0F53fWhJ6-i4yFvRPBJmXZwlPXC7SVjvWwpOUKtd3H1p1sCBA1DF5daEA . I trust the NASA data, and I suppose you do, too, since you link to it. The NASA data shows over 0.9C temperature rise from the pre-1980 mean. Tha...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

I understand the carbon cycle , but i also realise that the variations and errors in the measurement of those sources and sinks, is orders of magnitude greater than the suggested additios caused by human actions. Whilst you just seem to blindly accept as precise the figures regurgitated by alarmist...

Ahhh, good , i feel comforted now.! If the IPCC says it will happen , then it most likely wont ! They have a near perfect record for failed predictions.

Re: gas price thread

I have no idea what the gas price is in Central Texas. I started riding my bike (regular bike, not my ebike) to work most days. I filled my truck a month ago and it is still sitting near full. It could go to $10 a gallon for all I care. In the meantime, I've dropped 10 lbs and am in the best shape I...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Why would you be happy to let someone else decide when and if you can have heating or cooling ? Why can you not have power when ever you need it ? Why cannot they install sufficient capacity to cope with all demands....it has always been possible in the past ? I have had these type of thermostats f...

Gotta love that hillhater dude. Always with the negative vibes. While he is beating out the constant refrain of how it can't be done, we are here doing it. Closing 3 out of 4 coal plants (2 this year and one in 2030) and increasing renewables (almost entirely wind and solar) to 50 percent of the por...

Where are you getting this graph of HADCrut data from, because it is not correct. The real data shows no "hiatus."

And if "EXTRA" temperature increase, results in EXTRA CO2, ....is it not possible that the recorded recent "baseline" increase in surface temperatures might just be a cause o...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

I guess i have to repeat myself again... The problem with "gross", and "net" , in the climate debate is there is no accurate data for any of these figures. We know with very great accuracy how much petroleum, coal, and natural gas is produced and burned every year. This is the NEW CO2 that is being...

Seriously my denier friends, it all boils down to this: Show me your model. If you believe it's possible to emit over 30 billion tons of fossil CO2 each year without raising global temperatures, then show me a plausible physics-based model that explains how that is possible. To date, nobody has been...

Yes I can get mad so long as those denier sites show that graphic without also showing a plot of what solar activity was doing during that time.

Seriously, hillhater? Do you just make this stuff up or cut and paste from the denier sites? Because nothing you just wrote is even close to the truth. I explained all this to you before in great detail but you choose ignorance. I'm done explaining things to you.

$16.5 Trillion? So, for about the same amount wasted on failed wars for the last 16 years, we could have a reliable, renewable, carbon free energy grid? I'll vote for that. Where do I sign up?
