    Clean Air Causes Global Warming

    http://www.moonbattery.com/archives/...air-cause.html

    As much of the world marked Earth Day this past week, the Environmental Protection Agency reported that air pollution has declined dramatically over the past 20 years. It sounds like good news, but science writer Eli Kintisch argues that there's a surprising downside: Cleaner air might actually intensify global warming.
    "If we continue to cut back on smoke pouring forth from industrial smokestacks, the increase in global warming could be profound," Kintisch writes in an opinion piece for the Los Angeles Times.
    Kintisch isn't talking about greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide; he's talking about another kind of pollutant we put in the sky "like aerosols from a spray can," he tells NPR's Guy Raz. "It turns out that those particles have a profound effect on maintaining the planet's temperature."

    What slant are you trying to take with this.

    That we should put more pollution into the air? In order to stop global warming.

    But you don't believe in that so it just sounds like you want to give the rest of us cancer.

    This isn't news, it has been well known that the soot factories put up into the air until recently actually had a cooling effect. The costs of throwing that shit up there though compared to the benefits is too great though.

    I just had a shocking relization. If mumbles agrees with the above does that mean that he has aknowledged that man can affect the climate?

    Like BCOP just said, this isn't news. It's been long known that particulates in the air cause cooling. What's your point?

    Ah yes, nothing but bad news from multiverse to multiverse.

    Leave it to the Left to convert every rainbow into a turd.

    Air pollution increases? >>>BAD!

    Air pollution declines? >>>> ALSO BAD!

    If you do not understand, the B's Eunuch will be here presently to solemnly declare you "stupid".
    He is quite the authority on "stupid".


    HERE'S EUNUCH !

    You know you're thin on material when you're forced to respond to a six-month old thread to try and make a point. Hey, while you're at it why don't you try and take a stab at the Evolution threads again.

    Another contributor to the problem with warming comes from the Ozone layer, or lack of, but whaddya expect with so many spaceships poking holes in it as they come and go?
