It all makes perfect sense if you are a climate expert, or have the IQ of a turnip. But I repeat myself.

    If we get any more warmth, I am going to have to abandon shorts in the summer!

    I too am hoping that the kids next door at NASA are right. If their “warming” trend continues on its current track maybe my electric bill will stay the same… since lowering my A/C usage will offset the government cause spike in my electric bill. At least increased electric rates can be properly blamed on Climate Change™.

    I have the IQ of a turnip, and I deeply resent the comparison to climate scientists.

    Why doesn’t Plait understand his own graph (of CO2 increases)? Why won’t someone of scientific integrity ask: if CO2 atmospheric levels increased at a steady rate and the amount of CO2 levels humans have generated increased exponentially, then why doesn’t the graph showing atmospheric levels reflect an ever increasing amount of CO2 going into the atmosphere?

    • They say the Ocean absorbs it.. hence Ocean Acidification is happening .. caused by humans… and of course we are lucky that the great forests absorb much of it.. but mankind is tearing down forests… this will exacerbate the situation if say more of the Amazon/Brazil Rainforests are cut down.. replaced by future McDonald’s burgers in the form of Methane blowing cattle…
