Re: New Heat Records

Hey putnid, does this mean you're giving up eating meat and air travel?

Also if you want to cut your carbon footprint even further I will rent you my garage. There is a light. I can take out the bulb if you want to reduce emissions at that [more]

Re: Models not so bad

The phase of natural variability is largely random. A model that happens to be in phase with reality is not necessarily better than a model that is out of phase with reality. It is just luckier. For the past decade or so. There is no reason to [more]

Re: Republican Bankster Supports A Carbon Tax

A tax on carbon emissions will unleash a wave of innovation to develop technologies

BC already has a carbon tax, so just sit back and reap the benefits.

CA already has cap and trade, and it is like the world's seventh largest [more]

Re: Carbon Tax Intended Consequences

Heh, heh. The carbon tax began in the middle of 2008 and you want to evaluate its effectiveness beginning in 2007. Pretty much speaks for itself.

I think 2007 is an appropriate baseline for something that started in 2008, which is the [more]

Re: Carbon Tax Intended Consequences

BC enacted the Carbon Tax in 2008. Seems fair to give it a year to have an effect. So look at what per capita GHG emissions were for BC and the rest of Canada in 2009 and then in 2011. You seriously going to tell me that BC per capita emissions [more]

Re: Carbon Tax Intended Consequences

Point is that after 5 years the BC carbon tax remains very popular as it substantially reduced fossil fuel use without negatively affecting the economy.

It didn't reduce per capita emissions any faster than the rest of Canada, so I'm [more]

Re: Carbon Tax Intended Consequences

Good for BC. BC is demonstrably better off with the carbon tax than without. Because of the carbon tax, BC has lowered personal and corporate income tax rates and its economy is functioning above the average. Plus there has been a significant [more]

Re: Carbon Tax Intended Consequences

But would you agree that regardless of whether one believes in AGW, the BC carbon tax program has been a good thing?

Good for what? I can agree that it is better than some of the alternative carbon taxes proposed.

Re: Carbon Tax Intended Consequences

Was the Australian carbon tax structured like the BC one? I have not heard of a politician proposing one like BC's in the US. They generally want to use it as an opportunity to pass out cash to politically favored parties, such as in CA, some of it [more]

Re: Global Warming Meets Occam's Razor

A blog can do original research.

It can but the appropriate medium is academic journals.

Re: Global Warming Meets Occam's Razor

The scientist who WRITES the paper and the reviewer are both putting their careers on the line in some way. The blog writer has no such requirement and one of the clearest indications of this can be seen in the work of Spencer who has a blog of [more]

Re: Why They Lie: US Spent $165 Billion On AGW

Therefore, the $165 billion is not what has actually been spent on Climate Change Programs.

SEPP is just using the government provided numbers. If the government is lying to you, take it up with the administration.

Re: Global Warming Meets Occam's Razor

He quoted three highly respected peer reviewed journals. That is what I mean by presenting science. Quoting blogs is not.

You seem to not understand that science does not have to come from a peer reviewed journal.

Re: Global Warming Meets Occam's Razor

You are right that it's about establishing truth but if blogs don't cite sources of information then they can't be checked and validated. Many blogs misrepresent facts. As I explained, if they cite the source material then you can check that and [more]
