    @massimo. Perhaps you are beginning to understand. Yes it's getting hotter because greenhouse gases are still rising. CO2 levels passed 400 ppm. Which means we have do a lot more than we are doing now. Perhaps you need to tell McLary and Mitch???

    OVER 406 PPM. I can't post graphs anymore but here is a link and the graph is terrifying.

    The world knows this and unfortunately we have laggards who to me just are a bunch of lazy bums.

    @massimob30, your example is as simplistic as expecting a mile long train traveling 60mph to stop in 500 feet.

    Look up "inertia" and "hysteresis." The science might help you understand, if you believe in science.

    @phawker. No they don't. They realize that we have to pay for it. But Elon Musk has shown us it can be affordable.

    Rxlawdude - in other words, you have no idea either. Keep in mind the laughable predictions made by Al Gore et al and what came to fruition. Since you are making the claim, the burden of accuracy in on you, not me.

    LOL. The climate change deniers have lost it.

    @massimob30, you're like talking to a brick wall. I do hope you live in an area with "relaxed" environmental protections. Let us know, say in 20 years, how that worked out.

    Over 100 GW of Solar Power installed. US was part of that. was is the keyword.

    Rxlawdude - You lost credibility when your side predicted gas would be $9/gallon, milk would be $13/gallon, and NYC would be underwater by now. Sorry, you are not allowed to be that wrong in the name of science. In fact, you would be/should be laughed out of the room.

    Faker.

    Here is some factual information and not opinions.

    @massimo. What are you talking about? If you truly want to discuss credibilty lets begin with Trump and then the Republicans.

    Post your sources that show the original unaltered quotes.

    @massimo, although others have already tore you a new one, I must comment on your "You lost credibility when your side..."

    This indeed is the problem with the world, and politics as practiced by many on YOUR SIDE, today. It's OUR side or nothing. No logic, no compromise, no recognition of the spectrum between violet and red. Sad.

    In downtown Seattle there is a major networking hub in the Westin Office Building. The building started as a normal office building tower right next to the Westen Hotel. A coincidence placed a crossing of major Internet backbones directly below the building and the building was converted entirely to network operation centers and server farms.

    They generate a lot of heat.

    Amazon is building their new office towers across the street from this Westin tower, and they are heating the new buildings with the waste heat from the server farms.

    They also have Windows that open (on a 38 floor office building) and when the weather is appropriate, they shut down the building's HVAC and a green light turns on to indicate that people should open the windows.

    Thanks johnse.
    I just order some peppercorns, sea salt and some other items from Amazon. They are doing extremely well.
    Utilizing wasted heat and now sunlight makes good economic sense.
    Our PV panels are awesome for 5 years now and saved up money. After 4 years of sun electricity that paid for our costs we have been living on free energy. We want to find a good lot and build a Tesla like home with their solar roofing. We can do a lot on the local levels also.
    Remarkable how easy this is to do nowadays. I look forward to new developments in energy improvements.

    Incredible news. The Republicans may get what they deserve. Seems ironic.

    Watch the video, you would think this clip came from the movie Armageddon.

    Rxlawdude -

    No one here has tore me a new anything, from what I am reading here, no one here will.

    I don't have a side, other than what we know is true. The truth is, your side sucks at making accurate claims. The truth remains that we affect our environment, and as the prevailing species, we should lead in being responsible overseers of our planet. We now have the tech to meet our energy needs in a clean way, and that is the direction we should go.

    There is an inherent flaw in humanity, in that we think we know everything. We think we fully know how a 4.5 billion year old rock in space behaves, and cannot seem to handle when we are wrong. Look how wrong we have been in years past. What I am saying is, stop the doomsday scare (which you have been wrong on time and time again, leading to deniers), when a more irrefutable argument can be made.

    Fake news works on some I guess.

    What we know is true is that the vast majority of climate scientists agree about ACC.

    I recently watched (on Netflix) "Finding Altamira" which shows the religious prejudice against science over 120 years ago. Lots of similarities to the current extraneous reasoning that assaults intelligence and science. At least most people have learned from the past but others are still living in fear

    Mikey, just a question, why do you want to incite so much anger and hate? You continually troll the site with one-sided information that is wrong and you do not understand. I think you enjoy getting others to argue. Did your Momma not pay you enough attention ????
