Hes right about global warming, because even if its not the entire cause of it, its still contributing..But I think next time he should have cut down his electricity bill down a tad before he made the movie...;)

Interesting point (regarding the slashdot link). Even though the Giant Star will continue to play a part in our survival, we should do what we can do reduce excessive emissions.

But pollution isn't good for our lungs, so why use people as air filters?

Death to oil/gas based fuels!

I am not going to say whose right or wrong, but NASA is the ultimate authority on global warming. Take a look at the risks they take with the space shuttle and see if you can trust them.

True dat - not much messin' around with climate analysis...

In reply to: Scientists?

I've heard and read a lot of info on climate change/analysis from a many learned people. All I can say is - there is pretty good analysis, but most climate scientists have been wise and humble in acknowledging that to adequately model the climate is HARD-cubed.

I'm in the school of thought that says we should produce "closed loop" system as much as possible from scratch or by modification of existing processes, software, controls, hardware, etc. So far, I think NOX/Carbon caps are a great idea for foreign and domestic economies.

At the risk of bring up a long and tedious argument; CO2 is bad for other reasons like in the Oceans it turns into Carbonic Acid and dissolves coral. The PH levels in the Seas are changing and becoming more acidic.

Besides, scientist have been measuring the Solar intensity on Earth for hundreds of years using a test called the Pan Evaporation Rate. Lower tech yes, but it's hard to beat a hundred plus years of data. And also the new equipment confirms the old. The Sun seems to be dimming(for the Earth surface at least). Most likely it is pollution of some type. So if the rays hitting the surface aren't as strong as they use to be, then why is it getting hotter?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
