4. Thanks, then. I wasn't sure how to interpret...

...the reference to Hatrack - the fine poster at over E&E when it comes to keeping track of climate changes consequences - although I obviously hold a rather contemptuous position with respect to other posters in E&E, in particular the dumb ass anti-nukes who are responsible in my view, for this disaster. I ignore them, and obviously they ignore me.

I seldom write there any more.

As for whether so called "renewable energy" is doing anything with respect to climate change after 3 trillion dollars in 20 years and half a century of wild cheering for it, events rather speak for themselves.

I have noticed why the world is burning; even if it seems to escape much attention.

This morning's weekly data at Mauna Loa shows that we are 25.11 ppm higher than we were just ten years ago. It is only 8th time in over 2,320 such readings that a value greater than or equal to 25.00 ppm has ever been recorded for this piece of data, going back almost half a century. All eight such readings took place in the last two years, five of those eight this year.

So much for all our wind turbines...

I am very clear in my view of so called "renewable energy" is all about. I view our enthusiasm for it, our belief that it will work, on the left rather as a form of our answer to the right wing's belief in creationism.

I wish I could say that we on the left are innocent with respect to climate change; but regrettably, I can't. We are, quite literally, tilting at windmills. Our hatred of nuclear science borders on criminal in my view, and I am unafraid of saying so.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and thanks for the complement.
