CO2 problem caused by...

Then there is that black carbon stuff...


CO2 is fine for the environment itself.
The (remaining) plants really appreciate it!

Yes, the remaining plants that survive after excess CO2 and other greenhouse gases warm the planet enough for most other plants (people? cats? dogs? cows?) to drown or get annihilated by extreme weather events.

I knew you were one of the smartest idiots on the site, but I wasn't aware of just how fine of a brush you comb the bullshit with.

You just won the shaka sneak attack GIF!

Trump, speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One on Thursday after touring damage from Hurricane Irma on Florida's west coast, said "we've had bigger storms than this" when asked about climate change.
"If you go back into the 1930s and the 1940s, and you take a look, we've had storms over the years that have been bigger than this," Trump said. "If you go back into the teens, you'll see storms that were as big or bigger. So we did have two horrific storms, epic storms, but if you go back into the '30s and '40s, and you go back into the teens, you'll see storms that were very similar and even bigger, OK?"

He's full of ****.

There's never been a bigger storm in the Atlantic Basin, ever. And two Cat 4+ storms have never made landfall in the continental US in a single year.

No clothes, the emperor has.

Trump is like a huge parody o our system.

He is concentrated irony.

How about Harrison Ford AKA Han Solo?

He doesn't kiss and tell, nor does he wait around for slow pokes.

Love the planet, or leave it. What a scoundrel..

I wish. If I could have a dream about a way to overcome the mechanical issues with horizontal wind generation it would be very lucrative. At this time the downsides are reduced efficiency and destructive high winds. They are much more attractive and have the ability to generate, dependent upon design, at lower wind speeds typical with reduced height.

to add

We had a chance to possibly have this issue as last years engineering project for Oklahoma State University. The customer didn't want to go that route because he has little faith in numbers, engineers, etc. and prefers to experiment through prototyping. That was fine when his product was remote control technology. He didn't want to face the complexity of the physics involved with regard to design, efficiency and stability at extremes. You can dump wind in the portion of rotation needed to improve efficiency but it requires more moving parts, maintenance and service. Then again there's the high wind issue. I've shelved my participation on the project for now.

Waiting on that dream......

Bnet will call it quitting.

I fat fingered this and meant to upvote.

I'm not sure what you are getting at, however, that was pretty classy of Ford.

I'm sure he's not proud of cheating on his then-wife either, which might have something to do with his reticence.

However, I can see how a 19 year old Carrie Fisher would have been pretty damned tempting.

Anywho, BOT, major reliance (as in "decarbonizing the economy") on renewable energy (wind, solar, hydro, although enviros don't really like hydro) will require an integrated power grid, probably for all of North America (Canada, USA, and Mexico), major government intervention in the economy (in form of carbon tax).

The integrated grid is a huge undertaking by itself. We can imagine the screams of commiesocialismdictatorship I'm sure...

Also, fascinating history regarding municipal generation of power versus private in early 20th century and on...

"Hah? No, what you talking about?"

1928 Southeast Florida/Lake Okeechobee Hurricane
This gigantic Category 5 hurricane crushed Puerto Rico and only weakened slightly before hitting south Florida.
The storm made landfall near West Palm Beach with winds of 145 mph.
In the city, more than 1,711 homes were destroyed, but the impact was worse Lake Okeechobee.
Storm surge caused the lake to overflow and put the surrounding area under 10 to 15 feet of water.
Numerous houses and buildings were swept away in Belle Glade, Canal Point, Chosen, Pahokee and South Bay.
At least 2,500 people drowned, but it's possible this number is as high as 3,000.
While crossing Florida, the system weakened significantly.
It curved and briefly re-emerged into the Atlantic and made another landfall near Edisto Island, South Carolina, with winds of 85 mph.

The "Irma was the worst storm ever" is a silly and baseless claim.
