And (i get tired of mentioning this) it is a plain FACT that ALL the inner planets are getting warmer, not just Earth,
So, no evidence that all the inner planets are warming? Maybe you should update your reading on Mars, Jupiter is not an inner planet, and what about Venus, exactly? Never mind the etc. etc., I'd like specifics we might discuss.
I seem to remember reading a lot of articles in the last 10 years including "temperature rise on Mars unexplained" and "Jupiter's Red Spot is shrinking", the more recent posts about Venus, etc etc.
Known about what? That CO2 is a greenhouse gas? We've known that since quite awhile before the 70s.
Since we have known about this since the 70's i still don't see what the fuss is all about......
Ok. So what does that have to do with CO2 levels?
Fun fact 90: Plutonium is NOT weapons grade material, it is the perfect slow-decay nuclear fuel, what the gubmint class as "dangerous nuclear waste" is in fact a stockpile of useable, safe, fission material that will last the US 300 years or more. But what about the rest of us?
Termites emit ten times more CO2 than humans.
I will get around to Tesla's patent, i have most of them, i will get the numbr.
Sure. But I would prefer the source articles rather than "consumer" science if possible.
you still want me to dig them out?
Nature also adapts to Man...
No kids? But you're right, they won't choke and die.
It's not like you are going to choke and die on it in our lifetime,
Right. Digging up coal and oil and burning it is a perfectly natural process. Happened a lot 200 years ago.
a natural process of co2 returning in a cycle to the air.
Bring on the palm trees!
Well, the plants aught to be happy then. Plenty of co2 for them to breathe.
Honestly, warmer is better as far as a planet goes. So I welcome the warming.
Atmospheric carbon dioxide is in equilibrium with the biosphere, if we manage it well, it can recuperate, can go back to 200 a 250 ppm.

I choose to believe that AGW is not at all like the alarmists claim. I chose to believe that the Earth is much more resilient and our input, however ugly and disruptive it may be, could not effect the Earth on a planetary level as some would suggest. What do I base that on? A feeling. (I know, super credible right?) Knowing the alternative is to run around screaming and flailing, I'd prefer to just smile and go on with my world. Whatever the temperatures might be, I'll adjust as I do each season.
Translation: "AGW isn't real because it feels better to stick my head in the sand and pretend it doesn't exist."
We're all gonna die no matter what, actually. But your strawman argument is noted, as usual.
Translation: Oh god,oh god we're all gonna die if we don't let the state regulate the planet!
Yup. Notice any rivers catching on fire lately? Notice how acid rain seems to not be much of a problem now? Notice how the air around our cities is cleaner than it was 40 years ago?
Already know the STATE has been in charge of the climate for over 60 years. Law after LAW.
The issue, in this case, is that CO2 emissions have not decreased much. Some, but not much.
The ISSUE is exactly WHAT ?
