    Global Warming, CO2 and CFCs

    It turns out global warming is not caused by CO2 but by CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons).

    And CFCs have been banned and we can expect our global cooling trend to continue for 70 years.

    How embarrassing for those committed to the reduction of CO2.

    What's your source? Is this a recent discovery? And by whom?

    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Yeah, you're always talking about how you value evidence, but you if you're going to include some claim like that, the least you can do is actually includes some. Even if it's nothing more than a link.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Does that mean that you acknowledge that global heating might be related to human activities?

    Science is not that simple, unfortunately.

    Victor, I ask you to retain your "common sense" while the scientific community debates whether one sole Chinese scientist (over hundreds) might be correct or not.

    It's just one hypothesis, and so far, it's not that likely.

    This question makes no sense because I've never said anthropogenic CO2 isn't a factor.

    I take that for a yes. Do you agree?

    That's a big ask, Blackmail. And although I only have a tenuous grasp of common sense, I'll do my best.
