Re: “Climate Strange: Idaho's Tug of War on Climate Change

Carbon Fraud aptly named. The atmosphere is not analogous to an actual "greenhouse." It is a metaphor for what happens in a system that can trap heat, like a greenhouse. The earth's troposphere is 5 - 9 mi thick, not 8ft. The gases' (CO2, O2, N2, H2O, etc) interactions with solar radiation and earth's thermal radiation is much different in an 8ft high than in a 5-9 mi high box. It is also different at extreme concentration differences. Please show us the experimental data you are citing and the extrapolations used to compensate for the different concentrations, geometric differences, surface difference, effects of the glass or other material used for the enclosure, etc. Without this information, you're just being obtuse and blowing hot air. And contrary to Mick's belief, the 2nd Law of Thermo does not apply to a open system like our atmsophere.

Re: “Idaho Senate Tangles With Controversial 'Faith Healing' Bill

The only place this is controversial is in the legislature, most folks in Idaho think it's crazy to kill or maim children as a sacrifice to a god. And these are the same people so worried about Sharia law.

Re: “Idaho Senate Tangles With Controversial 'Faith Healing' Bill

It is appalling that these politicians allow their personal religious beliefs regarding the power of prayer to dictate the law. If you place your hand in a pot of boiling water, you will get burned. No amount of prayer will alter that fact. However, this debate is not about the power of prayer vs. modern medicine. It is about the basic right of a child to be allowed free access to both and not be denied either. The fact that so many lawmakers cannot make that distinction is the heart of the matter.

Re: “Climate Strange: Idaho's Tug of War on Climate Change

I want to know why Al Gore, patron saint of the environmental movement in the US Congress and later on VEEP, just bought his SECOND mansion on the beaches of Monte Cito, California, where you would expect the rising seas to swallow up his new investment.…
