The last thing Climate Bedwetters still have is Arctic Ice but that is also cyclical and will come back soon enough. Then what?

Permanent drought wasn't permanent?

More rain in one month than in the entire preceding three years may well spell the end of a drought, but is it a return to normal?

I think if you look up agenda, your behavior fits right in there:

Agenda, an underlying often ideological plan or program.

You even have your own gain in mind as you so gleefully love to expound on the make up of your portfolio.

You also fit the definition of zealot nicely:

Zealot: a fanatical partisan.

You pick and choose data, show it in all its technical glory and marlboroughsplain it to fit your agenda. You are certainly fanatical in your efforts to keep this discussion going. What you cant seem to accomplish is a broader view. One that encompasses, but is not limited to CO2. One that includes the concepts of waste, pollution, environmental impact, politics, and economics as cogs in a highly complex system.

For such a clear thinker your kinda shit at seeing the big picture.

Now that we pay carbon taxes show me on this graph to what point of normal do you want to return? And let me know when we get there.

...
What is your end-game for this never-ending discussion marlboroughman ?
Agenda or not , i think your like PMU , his alter-EGO --alexrider -- flies ram-air
kites, as well as the best on this forum, but when the PMU side of him takes over
all he really wants to do is argue with people, (like Forever).

Bottom-line for me is GW makes for better thermals and i go higher when
there ain't any rain ; the carbon emissions make the air quality so bad that
i don't want to come down from a flight.

For me -- i'd rather see cleaner air, for a cleaner planet , (even if it meant a shorter flight)
so my end-game would B :
Fight GW at all cost, (Even if GW is actually Non existent) it gives people
something to live for, other than Big-Oil turning our planet into a place like
cities in China, that could give a shit about the environment, or the people
living in them.

@ marlboroughman :
I think you and PMU would make Great Butt-Buddies ; you should contact
the guy
and stretch your mouths over some nice Cock-a-doodle-do
rather than arguing with people !! :lol:

You don't read much ; do Ya ?
Wikipedia wrote: A carbon footprint is historically defined as "the total set of greenhouse gas emissions caused by an [individual, event, organisation, product expressed as carbon dioxide equivalent."
Carbon footprint - Wikipedia

Anything else ?

I do, but I have much better bullshit detector. I just downloaded this for my trip among some other writers from the top shelf on economy. I don't have time for liberal snowflake shit. I better put a smily or two here, before you blow up again. :lol: I sow it. :D
