By the man who brought us: "I am wondering, has anyone ever put a carbon rig on a 40.7 to reduce weight aloft and smooth out its motion through the water?" You should try and grasp basic physics instead of feeding us fake climate change propaganda.The trouble with the climate argument is the monumental logical jumps made based on a single view of earth when multiple factors which could be far more significant and important are not being considered.
We know earth has gone through all kinds of natural cycles in the past. Are we assuming that the past fifty years of records forms a baseline for earth and we must maintain the earth at its exact temperature forever? I heard there were ice ages and warm ages. The finger lakes of New York were cut by ice glaciers. Do the scientists know what causes these cycles? The "science" of global warming says we could heat up the planet by a degree or so in x years. How many tens of degrees warmer or colder does the earth get during an ice age or warm period? What tiny percent of those changes does carbon heating constitute? And did earth survive? And how do we know that the temperature changes we have observed over 50-100 years have not arisen as part of one of these larger cycles? Heat increases/decreases from the sun? Volcanic activity?
Assuming America could go to zero carbon in X period of time. If China and India do not, what will be the environmental impact?
For the most part our armies and navies are powered by carbon. Are we giving up our deterrent role in the world? Is the plan to give up our hope for a world of demcracy and let Putin and Chee dominate the world? Now what has zero US carbon achieved? In fact, you can already give it credit for the start of the Ukraine War and the wiping out of Mariupol. Half a million people, a whole culture, dead.
The largest land masses in the world are far north. Would a five degree temperature increase be welcome in Siberia and the North West Territories and Greenland? Will the growing world population benefit from warming these lands? How about in Antarctica. Maybe the penguins would prosper more with a little more heat? We know that the deep ocean suffers from a lack of energy (heat). Would they benefit?
A much more cogent environmental question today is the four or more garbage vortices developing in the oceans (two in the pacific, one in the Atlantic, one in the Indian ocean). and made up of human made plastics in such quantities that they are blocking out the access of plankton to the sun and interfering with the life processes in the oceans.
