Agree, but too much of anything is bad.
Dirtiest electricity is produced in nuclear reactors.
Questionable. I haven't done enough research to properly answer this point.
Man made climate change is a fairy tale for making big money for some agencies and scientists. Resent NASA studies show that ice cover is growing in Antarctics.
Researched this. Ice is growing in certain parts
of the Antarctic, mainly inland Antarctica due to snowfall. Ice around the edges hasn't been discussed, and the last I heard, was melting. Remember, Antarctica is starting to come out of winter at this point in the year, for what it's worth.
As for climate change, the way I see it, there has been a steady rhythm in the Earth's atmosphere for at least the last 650,000 years. Atmospheric CO2 levels slowly climb to roughly 280-295 ppm, at which point feedback loops start to intervene and trigger a dramatic cooldown, or ice age. During the ice age, atmospheric CO2 levels drop to below 200 ppm. The cycle repeats. What humans have done as far as climate change is rapidly accelerated this process, taking the tipping point from a period of a few thousand years down to who knows how many years, possibly as few as 50 years if not less.
For a process to not exceed 300 ppm atmospheric CO2 for better than half a millennia, sounds to me like CO2 should be pretty stable in the atmosphere. In the last 100+ years, humans have taken it to 400 ppm. Logic dictates that there will be some consequences to this action.
Sorry, Don, I did not notice, that you asked something. What was the question?
