This is a strong case, but where is the evidence that HUMANS are causing the build up? Sure there is more C02, but where is the SUVs "did it" part? As you mention a single forrest fire puts out way more.

The problem here still remains: the leftists, socialists, and marxists are united in blaming the HUMANS so that they can heavily regulate progress and growth.

Why is world population not the _big_ issue? That's the primary factor that drives secondary effects such as global warming, environmental stress, depletion of resources, poverty and on and on.

As an example, no matter how energy efficient cars become, if an increasing number of the 1.2 billion Chinese begin driving, that'd overwhelm any such efficiencies. Or are they not to become so affluent?

And what's the sense of Kyoto when developing nations like China and India are given a pass? Manufacturing has already been massively shifted to those countries. Wouldn't it be better for manufacturing to stablize and remain in the developed nations which have better environmental regulations and technology?

It's not that Global Warming is/isn't occurring; it's that it's the big issue. Why would environmentalist focus on that, and not overpopulation? On the harm being done to the US through out-of-control immigration? Is it really about the environment at all? One does have to wonder.

Weather is driven by tturepaemre gradients not high tturepaemres alone. Hot water by itself will not form a storm unless the air above it is cold. it can form rain squalls if the air contains to much moisture, but that is all. it takes conditions where the clouds reach high into cold upper levels of the atmosphere to power a big storm. So large dangerous storms are heat engines driven by a large tturepaemre differential between the ocean below and the stratosphere above.There was a plan written back in the late 60s to use the large missile busting lasers that were going to be put in orbit as part of the star wars missile defense program. These lasers would be used to warm up the input air to a major storm to where the tturepaemre differential could be dropped enough to take away most of the storms power. Another part of the plane was to drop powdered dry ice (co2) into the hot side of the storm to cool it off again reducing tturepaemre differential robbing the storm of its power.These things could have busted killer storms years ago but disaster loving democratic politicians like Jimmy Carter have prevented these live saving projects from ever becoming reality.

I just read in the paper that not only is this horrible wehetar supposed to continue through mid-September, but that La Nina is supposed to be reforming in the Pacific. That is what was responsible for the terrible drought conditions in the first place! All we can do now is hope for a hurricane or tropical storm to bring us temporary relief! Here in Gnomeville we are situated a bit better than Betsy in Austin. Our rivers are not drying up like hers are. Our big Lake is not as low. We got some good floods last year that helped out. The judge's springs are still flowing, which is surprising. They are fairly shallow, compared to the ones by my house. So that is good news for our aquifer. But we need rain desperately. This heat dome doesn't even let clouds form. It is blue sky and white hot sun day after day.
