      SUBSCRIPTION DRIVE 2017   01/09/2017

      As you may have noticed, many of you are receiving renewal notices for subscriptions.  Over the past year we have upgraded our board software and one of our dedicated servers to help speed things up.  Plans for this year are to upgrade further to make everything even faster and more reliable. If we meet our goal of $10,000 in subscription sales this winter, all members with a Super ($50) subscription or higher will receive a free American Weather T-shirt.  Additional details will follow if we make our goal!

The thing is, Earth will never get to that point of CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere. In fact, the CO2 we are releasing is beneficial to our environment in SOME ways, not all obviously.

https://fcpp.org/sites/default/files/documents/Moore - Positive Impact of Human CO2 Emissions.pdf

That article is full of misinformation. The past CO2 data is outdated below is a more modern estimate. With the improved CO2 data past warm periods are now closely aligned with high CO2. A couple of periods are of interest:

pliocine 3-5 million years ago: CO2 roughly 400 ppm, temperatures 2-3C higher, sea level 15-20 meters higher than today.

early eocene 55-60 million years ago: CO2 1000 ppm, temperature 9-14C higher than today, no land ice

End of Permian mass extinction 250 million years ago: CO2 spiked over 2000 ppm; largest mass extinction event.

I never said we couldnt go to green energy but since you brought it up yes we could spend trillions on green energy and stop  using electricity because green CANT provide the baseline REQUIRED for industry.......we could go back to the stone age.........OR we could use science and stop this LUNACY that humans are controlling the weather and thereby driving the climate.....you are talking about politics i am attempting to discuss science.

lol you know NOTHING about science.  It sounds like you want to go back to a previous era in time- how well do you think humans would exist in that kind of climate?  Fact is green energy+nuclear is the only combination that will work and save us from the pollution of fossil fuels, earthquakes from wastewater fuel injection from fracking and pipeline explosions.;

Is this the same group that believes child labor rules "seem rather unnecessary"?

These people are disgusting.  I thought Neanderthals went extinct a long time ago- apparently not.
