Why don't you follow suit and present some evidence instead of complaining when others do?

:

The results of a Google search on my post.

Quote:
"past" (and any subsequent words) was ignored because we limit queries to 32 words.
Your search - "Burning wood releases CO2 that would have been released through decomposition. That ... - did not match any documents.

Suggestions:

Make sure that all words are spelled correctly.
Try different keywords.
Try more general keywords.
Hint - I wrote it.

So it still makes sense to order in some chicken, even though steak is still cheap.

(btw renewables are an emerging industry. And coming along nicely. Or did you think the technology would develop itself?)

The only thing I parrot is my opinion.

I'll assume the personal attack has started because you have nothing concrete to offer in this debate?

Peer reviewed science - try it some time.

I don't care if it's beer reviewed. It's clutching at straws junk science. Like your global warming of Antarctic peer reviewed papers that "conveniently" neglect to mention that ice sheet area is expanding, no mention of possible geothermal interactions and the fact that at the rate of alleged volume loss the simple maths is 80 000 years 'til it's all gone.

Was it also peer reviewed science that gave us 6 degree Celcius temperature rises and 2.4 metre sea level rises by 2100? Not to mention the famous Hockey stick.

Even your original post that started this thread was hype (was it peer reviewed too? - I cant recall) leading to this endless back and forth now occurring.

If you can ignore something concrete in the very same post, and even in your quote from it, then yes I guess I've never had anything of interest to offer you.

Umm, I requested some proof of unfolding disaster. You tried to disprove my reference to returning to the stone age, which is a metaphor. Apologies I didn't make that clear. I'm sure we won't need to go beyond the Bronze

Re: Global Warming Opens Up Antarctic Waterways

Are we reaching a positive climate change tipping point? | The Guardian
Quote:
Are we tipping the right way? One of the great environmental stories is of how catastrophe can creep up and be noticed only when it is too late to act. Examples range from the sudden, inexplicable collapse of bee colonies, to ice cores revealing the potential for dramatic climatic upheavals that happen not in millennia or centuries, but the time it takes to pass through a coalition government or two.

It is hard enough to identify tipping or “inflection” points when you are consciously looking, like monitoring the so-called known unknowns of future forest die-back, deep-sea methane release, ice melt and sea level rise. Worse, in complex systems, are the unknown unknowns. All you have is nebulous worry. It’s why we are supposed to obey the precautionary principle relating to any activity which at scale is capable of altering whole systems.

But this is only half the story, because when something tips, it might well fall to the floor and smash but it might also fall comfortably into your lap. It’s possible we have become so hypnotised by real and serious negative tipping points, that we’ve forgotten that things can turn out unexpectedly well too....

The latest figures on renewable energy trends from the UN Environment Programme (Unep) reveal a striking turnaround after a period in which low oil prices and policy uncertainty pushed investment down, threatening the sector. Even though oil prices remain low, world investment, largely in solar and wind, went up by 17% to $270bn (£180bn) last year, reversing a two-year dip. The new generating capacity that represents is about the same as the total output of the current US nuclear system....

It explains the confidence with which China, already the world’s largest wind power user, plans within five years to have more than double the capacity of the whole of Europe. It also colours the new, upbeat China-US climate diplomacy and is far from an isolated example.

Costa Rica may have relied on its very particular topography to have its energy system powered 100% by renewable energy in 2015, but it is symbolically powerful and Costa Ricans are enjoying falling energy prices. Also, the best energy systems should always be locally tailored....

Solar entrepreneur Jeremy Leggett argues in his forthcoming book, The Winning of the Carbon War, that three mostly independent dynamics are at play driving the change. Firstly, the numbers no longer add up in the old fossil fuel model. The costs of new acquisitions become unmanageable in a system that feasts on debt. Secondly, costs in solar and the vital link of a green energy system, battery storage, are plummeting while the sector offers attractive, reliable rates of return to investors. The Swiss bank UBS famously predicted the rapid “extinction” of the old fossil fuel system as battery costs as much as halve over the next five years....

One in four UK homes now benefits from wind power, a rise of 15% on last year, and Scotland is generating enough clean energy to be used in 98% of its homes....

Now, because you quote and that makes it hard to highlight some anomalies, let me point out that the amount of unadulterated sunlight falling on the Earth is around 1100 watts per square metre. Your graphic illustrates that anthropogenic + natural CO2 is contributing 0.2 watts per square metre. Regardless of how accurate that measurement is, do you see a problem at all with 0.2 vs 1100?
Whatever happened to "Lord" Monckton. He was ever deniers favorite ... ?and then suddenly he wasn't. Getting caught lying about your royal status is apparently worse for the cause than lying about your scientific credentials.

It's actually easier to support my "angle" of making mountains out of molehills with no practical solutions using Mr Cook's site, thanks for asking

P.s. anyone but me ever notice how all the comments on skepticalscience seem a little odd and appear, for the most part, to be written in a very similar style??
