  1. Hansen said 4 of the hottest years had occurred in the 80’s. Wasn’t CO2 at the safe level prior to 1988? People being concerned that the temperature was 1/3 degree higher in ’88 than the ’50-’80 average is a little hard to believe. It frankly should elicit a reply of “so what”. There is no way to keep the temp of one’s house that stable with an actual thermostat.

  2. “buildup of carbon dioxide and other artificial gases in the atmosphere.”

    “artificial” gases?

  3. artificial = man made, so GHG’s from human activity are artificial. I suppose natural GHG’s don’t affect the climate and artificial ones do.

  4. Fear of the energy that destryed Hiroshima on 6 Aug 1945 convinced world leaders to enslave the world to save themselves from possible nuclear annihilation. Science became a propaganda tool in 1946 and George Orwell started writing “Nineteen Eighty-Four”.

    The events that followed are summarized here:

    Dear friends,

    Comments would be appreciated on a paper in progress, “Neutron repulsion: Source of life.” 


    I will be on vacation next week but able to receive comments sent to omatumr@yahoo.com

    Comments on personal bias or distortions would be especially helpful.  I hope to complete and submit the complete paper for publication when I return.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    With kind regards,

  5. Sadly, this is the EXACT logic I have been given by a number of my enviro friends.

    Naturally occurring chlorine radicals are OK, but the 1/10th of 1% that man made are destroying the Ozone Layer!

    Natural CO2 is OK, but the small amount made by industry is killing us all!

    In fact, they tell me that the CO2 from cars is 100 times more deadly than the CO2 from any natural source, never even being able to understand enough chemistry to see that they are the same.

    These people are too stupid to function in civil society.
