Re: Global Warming: Recent Data

Hi, Kim. :coffee: Doing further research with regard to atmospheric methane and other alkane reactions in the presence of UV to produce CO2 and H2O I found this: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1080/00022470.1967.10469012 ...which details the elevations at which these reactions take place with...

Re: Global Warming: Recent Data

Kim: "CO2 and methane, on the other hand, drive the change, and they are much more stable. That all means that water vapour levels don't tell us much and aren't very useful to know, which is why the experts don't bother talking about them." Yes. I read this article, Kim, but don't agree that atmosp...

Re: Global Warming: Recent Data

Hi, folks. What I don't see being discussed is the increase in atmospheric water vapor. Water vapor is a very important green-house gas. As the ice melts from whatever region, a portion remains liquid at standard temperature and pressure, STP (20 °C (293.15 K, 68 °F) and an absolute pressure of 1 at...

Re: Global Warming: Recent Data

Hi, Kim. I guess this is good news. However, I believe PV is the more reliable from an engineering standpoint since wind power generation has infinitely more moving parts, and is dangerous to airborne sentient life-forms. Also, folks who live next to the really huge ones complain about the noise and...

Re: Discussion of Nuclear Power and Safety

Again, what are your better solutions? Birth control would lower the world wide demand for energy to a level where nuclear power would not be needed....and to facilitate birth control one of the best things is to empower girls/young women....and to empower girls/young women it is education which se...

Re: Discussion of Nuclear Power and Safety

mkoll: Thanks for the mortality statistics. Was Chernobyl included in those stats? If so, would be curious if those killed as a result of clean-up and emergency/ disaster response were included. They seem to lump those into other categories. However, I am not sure that digital emegency systems would...
