I've heard of the elephant in the room but the exposed pink elephant sounds like some finale from an eyes wide shut party.
I wouldn't know.

I am a physical scientist--I can use science to help us live better. By reasonable arguments, we might conclude that the earth has been overpopulated since about 10,000 BC. I can accept that in principle. I see my job as trying to manage the situation I am given. In this forum, I think that means looking for ways for all 7.6 billion of us to get along on a shrinking planet that is rapidly getting hotter due to rising CO2. I will comment further on a different thread.

The planet is getting a little hotter.

So?

Can you cite a single bad aspect of this that is going to cost any local council that has traffic lights, more than its' traffic light budget?

I will need you to explain the mechanism for the bad thing, that is the bit between the temperature increase and tha bad thing and cite some actual sciecne that shows this mechanism.

Then if it is credible and will cost such a sum you win. You will be the first.

Everything posted here is a denial of both physics and history.

Free air conditioning?

At least 18 dead in Quebec as heat wave continues

1, Do you consider this heatwave to be due to CO2 increases? If so is it an unprecidentedd heat wave or has such happened before? If it has what caused that?

2, If there is a slightly warmer world then the cold in winter will be less cold. I don't know about Quebec but here in teh UK it is winter which has the higher death toll. Thus I guess that an over all warming will make Quebec more habitable.

I don't know, but I wouldn't want to go out on a limb and claim it's nothing to do with climate change. There was a fairly recent heatwave ... 2003 European heat wave. There was a study ... The 2003 Heat Wave in France: Dangerous Climate Change Here and Now.
Who am I to argue plus old news with it coming on so strong these days.

If the winters get warmer it might offset the cost of the free air-conditioning, so, a small win, until you need it on in the winter as well. But tomatoes all year round! Giant marrows. Yes the brits will love it.

So you are unable to show that such heat waves have not happened before.

You are unable to show that this has anything to do with CO2.

You are unable to show that a warmer Quebec is a bad thing.

You are unable to think.

Whoah there, I think he showed all that and it has happened before.
Where's Ernie gone?
