    Like I said Frenchie...I never said it wasn't getting warm I just don't believe it is from human generated CO2...there is no way to eliminate the things in the past that have caused warming periods in the past before humans started adding to what was already there / happening...



    I need to know from you if Scientists around the world know all and everything about what, how, and why the earths air, land, and sea temps to go up and down and how they affect each other over thousands of years...

    I think most of us have no trouble paying taxes if the govn would have some common sense in doing so. I am happy at working and struggling, I wish it weren't for daily essentals though. And, when the govn taxes someone comparatively the same way the govn taxes the people born with money or ( is wealthy), which makes more money and lives a life of ease then it becomes unfair.

    As much as the people with mega bucks don't like to hear this they need to be taxed accordingly to the ratio where it equals mine. They need to feel the brunt of it like I do. Or most commoners. But they don't. The rich so to speak, just complains because it becomes less money to make money from while the little people loses the money to pay bills, buy food, and to live day by day.

    So in answer to your question there it is. You and all others can disagree but that is my viewpoint. Tax the people with money more than enough money, til it hurts like it does most American everyday citizens, make it fair to us.

    Tax them until, they squeal. Tax them until it hurts, until, they come down a rung or 6. Here is a novel idea tax them until, they are one of us. They should be absorbing most of the bill to which taxes do their work.

    Let the rest of us who live day by day be able to breathe once a while. I have no problem paying taxes to help those who need it but I do not want to support the wealthy.

    No, of course not. I don't think you'll find any scientists claiming it, either. That's just not how science works.

    Then there is no way any Scientist can know if, how, and to what degree CO2 affects climate....Thats exactly how Science works...You have to know how every thing works in Concert and only then can you determine the degree, if there even is one, to which adding CO2 to what is already there affects climate...

    It's been pretty rough here at the Dunbar household.


    Brought in air blowers and oxygen tanks to get through the next 36 hours, hoping it will end.

    Even my dog is having a go at it. I fed him too much turkey and forgot how he can crank em out when he's working on the cleanout phase.

    No, that's NOT how science works!

    "I don't know everything" is not the same thing as "I don't know anything". You don't have to wait until you understand everything, to say something about the parts you do understand.


    Newtonian physics, for example, is incomplete. It can't explain Mercury's orbit. It can't explain the way light bends when passing a large object. It can't explain a whole lot of other things... but it's accurate enough for designing & making internal combustion engines, bridges, trains, automobiles, roads, highrise buildings, and so on.


    Another example: is light a particle, or a wave? Do we have to wait until we know for sure which it is, before making light bulbs & lasers & cameras & light sensors & so on? Of course not.


    People have been breeding animals & plants for millenia - without understanding exactly how genes work, or even knowing there was such a things as DNA.
