  • "Settled Science" being unsettled by actual data
  • "We show a persistent and widespread increase of growing season integrated LAI (greening) over 25% to 50% of the global vegetated area, whereas less than 4% of the globe shows decreasing LAI (browning). Factorial simulations with multiple global ecosystem models suggest that CO2 fertilization effects explain 70% of the observed greening trend."

  • Re: "Settled Science" The Solution To Pollution is Dilution
  • We are dealing with bureaucrats and politicians. Actual information has no bearing whatsoever on a decision to spend or not to spend...

    We are dealing with the same people that measure pollution in parts per million.

    If your manufacturing plant pollutes a clean water stream with too many parts per million of arsenic... what is the solution?? Simply add more water to dilute the parts per million. You do not need to reduce the amount of arsenic, just dilute it...

    Does your car put out too many parts per million of co2?? Well what is the solution?? Simply dilute it by adding more fresh air before it comes out of the exhaust pipe...
    How you say?? just add an air pump that injects more fresh air into the system.

    Doesn't that just pollute more air you say?? Well yes...
    Doesn't that just burn more gas having to run the air pump?? well yes...
    So doesn't that just produce more co2?? well yes...

    So how does that help?? It doesn't... except it solves the problem of parts per million. even though you produce more co2, you dilute it with more air thus reducing the parts per million and then meet the standard... You burn more gas and pollute more air, but you meet the standard...

  • Do not expect any such facts to influence the feelings of the greenies.

  • Facts are so inconvenient.
