    Are facts determined by a majority or a consensus? Of course not. is the majority more often than not, at least on the right track? NO!

    Study shows wetter climate is likely to intensify climate change

    A new study published in the journal Nature indicates that the increase in rainfall forecast by global climate models is likely to hasten the release of carbon dioxide from tropical soils. That release would further intensify global warming by adding emissions of the greenhouse gas into Earth's atmosphere.

    "We found that shifts toward a warmer and wetter climate in the drainage basin of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers over the last 18,000 years enhanced rates of soil respiration and decreased stocks of soil carbon," says Hein. "This has direct implications for Earth's future, as climate change is likely to increase rainfall in tropical regions, further accelerating respiration of soil carbon and adding even more CO2 to the atmosphere than that directly added by humans."

    Thank goodness we can all relax. Global warming causes rain and now it's discovered rain causes release of CO2 into the atmosphere. Dovetails nicely with ice core records. Warming precipitates , leads, causes increases in CO2. We are fortunate there appears no real evidence CO2 causes global warming.
    otherwise we'd have a self sustaining, self perpetuating, self aggrandizing cycle that could snowball into a fireball!

    Rivers flowing into the sky?
    The magnitude of the water that goes into the sky from irrigation and landscaping is enormous. The Colorado River which used to flow into the Gulf of California but is now so diminished that it disappears into the desert carries more gallons of water than all the gallons of gasoline consumed throughout the U.S. An average annual flow rate for the Colorado River upstream is about 10,000 cubic feet per second. That translates into 864 million cubic feet per day, which is about 6.5 billion gallons per day. The total gasoline usage in the U.S. amounts to 378 million gallons per day, only about 6 percent of the disappearance of water from the Colorado.

    Though they don't talk about feedback loops very much now (embarrassed I imagine) AGWers basically ignore water vapor as the prime mover greenhouse gas. Instead they myopically concentrate on CO2.

    Why?

    As I pointed out earlier, as credible scientists Like Dr. Curry have pointed out, the premise that humans are causing warming pre-existed any evidence. Treaties were signed between some member nations of the UN prior to there being supporting evidence. Then the UN created committees to investigate. Were they investigating causes of global warming?
    NO!
    Their mission was to find evidence HUMANS caused global warming.

    Water vapor doesn't fit in with their agenda, so they accord tiny CO2 the credit for the entire warming. Of course, they also ignore that total human produced CO2 is insignificantly minuscule, about 12 ppm compared to the 400ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere.

    Water vapor produces 95% of warming. If governments could determine a way to tax it, they would be interested in water vapor. Meanwhile CO2 and fossil fuels are where governments steer their scientists.

    Yes! They are STEERED to CO2!

    this is why we should all be flat earthers

    So, the majority used to believe in a flat earth and that the sun revolved around the earth, and many more ignorant things we have outgrown. I know the earth is an oblate spheroid. I have navigated around it using spherical trigonometry. Are you claiming YOU are a flat earther?

    What does the majority know that isn't true? science stories.

    Could this be a solution for all that trash in our oceans,...including the huge collection of plastics.

    Possible Solution !?

    California trash-to-hydrogen plant promises dirt-cheap, super-green H2 https://newatlas.com/energy/sgh2-cheap-green-hydrogen-california/


    ...just an excerpt....
    How it works
    The process, developed by SGH2's parent company Solena, uses high-temperature plasma torches putting out temperatures between 3,500 and 4,000 °C (6,332 to 7,232 °F). This ionic heat, with oxygen-enriched gas fed in, catalyzes a "complete molecular dissociation of all hydrocarbons" in whatever fuel you've fed in, and as it rises and begins to cool, it forms "a very high quality, hydrogen-rich bio-syngas free of tar, soot and heavy metals."

    The process accepts a wide variety of waste sources, including paper, old tires, textiles, and notably plastics, which it can handle very efficiently without toxic by-products. The bio-syngas exits the top of a plenum chamber, and is sent to a cooling chamber, followed by a pair of acid scrubbers to remove particulate matter.

    another pro flat earth post?

    I never post pro-flat earth arguments.The world is round. If AGWers wasn't so myopically focused and intense on human CO2 causing a future catastrophe., they could participate in conversations. I post rational arguments against believing the hype, that nature is a perfectly balanced seesaw and humans, being a plague on the planet, tip the seesaw dangerously. Because once someone adopts the AGW POV, it seiously restricts their vision and hearing. Alternative points of view need to be seen.

    With modern technologies, the sky is not the limit.there are possibly NO limits of what we can achieve, unless we willfully refuse to try.

    In the 1850, citizens of Chicago jacked up the entire city to save it! Where there is a will....?
