    3,000 hookers? You know, I've heard Switzerland is beautiful this time of year. Perhaps I should go for a visit. You know, expand my horizons a bit.

    I'm not sure I can think of a starker contrast than that between Temple, Texas hookers and Davos, Switzerland hookers.

    The Swiss hookers have teeth?

    They'd even be relatively straight. I wouldn't feel too bad though. College Station hookers have hooves, so yours are at least a level above them.

    I don’t know all the details in the weeds in the hard science on this. And at least 99 out of 100 posters on these boards probably don’t either…. My sense from reading various things over the years is that greenhouse gases probably have some small effect on temperatures—causing them to rise slightly. But this runs counter to a larger, and much more powerful, trend of overall global cooling or inching towards another ice age.

    It balances out somewhat, with a very slight rise in temps in the very short run, but with a much more noticeable decrease in temps over the mid term, and certainly over the long haul. But, I could be wrong…

    Did Epstein and Maxwell ever go to Davos?
    Seems like the sort of place where they’d be.

    At this point, I'm curious if Kendall Briles is there.

    CO2 does have a heating effect in the atmosphere. The relationship is logarithmic though, which means that as the concentration goes up the effect of the new CO2 is less and less. Then at some point there is no effect at all. We are close to the ceiling now. CO2 can only absorb a narrow spectrum of IR once all that IR radiation is absorbed, no more effect.

    The absorption of outwelling radiation (acts as an insulation factor essentially) is also captured by water vapor and methane (which is mostly present due to biological processes). Thus, CO2 has a marginal effect by now.

    Wow. It would take a performance by Yoko Ono to top that one...

    Well that's good to know. I suppose this info doesn't seem to reach far beyond obscure scientific journals...

    Yeah. Basic physics governing climate science is now obscure. It's why I don't trust anything or anyone in power today.

    Yep. It wouldn't surprise me if she, like many other members in the green movement, are being supported financially by Putin. Putin knows this stupid **** is destructive to the West.

    And it isn't just Putin. It's China and all enemies of the West. Most of these environmental crackpots have always been working for communists and other enemies of the West.

    She wouldn't condemn Saudi Arabia either though. Are they an enemy of the West?

    That is eye opening though.

    I saw a video that was made some time ago refuting the Algore statements about CO2 causing global warming. Basically it says there is scientific data that shows temp increasing and concurrently CO2 increases, however the CO2 increase happens 800 years after the temp increases. So when temps decrease the CO2 lag is also 800 years on average behind in decreasing. The point was that CO2 increase and decrease is a result of heating and cooling and not the other way around.
