Fossil fuels are hydrocarbons made of hydrogen and carbon, but more hydrogen than carbon. For instance, methane is 1 carbon 4 hydrogens so burning one of these kills 2 O2 makes 1 CO2 and 2 H2O. More H2O vapor in the air rises up and cools and forms more clouds which block more sunlight which should result in a cooling effect of the world.

Clouds only cool the land during the day. They act to help warm the land at night.

Clouds are not magick heat sink, any more than carbon dioxide (or clouds) are a magick heat source. Clouds do not change the mean temperature in any way. They only serve to moderate temperature swings a bit better than the rest of the air.

How does cloud heat land during night? This is new to me.

Liquid water (like a cloud) has a high specific heat index. This means it takes longer to warm up or cool down than the air around it.

That is irrelevant. Clouds are high up and about -80 C much colder than the ground. Clouds have no effect on warming the ground at night.

Clouds can be at any altitude (including zero feet, which we call fog) well up into the stratosphere.

Tai Hai Chen's random squawks make him suitable prey for the parrot killer.

I don't get it. The greens and the deniers (because apparently "skeptic" is offensive) aren't lining up? Into the Night isn't agreeing with Tai simply because s/he's arguing against global-warming-non-deniers?

This gives me faith in humanity. Doesn't balance out the faith you tore away, though, forum.
