    what you liberals are not getting... is that we are not in a closed system.

    for instance lets say you lived in a green house but kept the temperature steady and a volcano belched CO2. It is quite likely the earth could or would process or off gas the extra CO2.

    Then if the earth naturally warms the next time the volcano belched it would keep more of the CO2 or accumulate more of it.

    Do you have evidence that making CO2 causes an accumulation of CO2. If y

    There's a word for this in philosophy, the belief that the universe and/or Earth "favors" Man. Can't recall it right now.

  4. The earth IS a closed system.

    Some of the extra CO2 that man has made has been absorbed by the oceans raising it's acidity level. Even so CO2 made by man has increased the atmospheric levels by 35% in the last 150 years.

    CO2 is a greenhouse gas which causes the temperature to rise.

    Temperatures are rising at an ever increasing rate because of this.

    Rising CO2 levels CAN indirectly cause more CO2 to outgas from the oceans because of the rising temps it will cause.

    You are arguing with someone who has a degree in environmental science.

  5. Something like this:"Luke 2:14 NIV
    New International Version
    "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

    are you saying there earth does not off gas CO2.

  8. No, both the land and the sea serve as CO2 absorbers and emitters. They can be sinks or sources. Most of the the recent CO2 pollution has been absorbed by the oceans.

    Again, nearly all the recent rise in CO2 is attributable to man's activities since the dawn of the industrial era. It's a fairly easy scientific exercise to prove this.

    CO2 is our atmosphere is like the glass in a greenhouse.

    1. One, I saw a recent study which explained that some CO2 is let off gassed.

    2. In contradiction to some recent studies, he finds that the airborne fraction of carbon dioxide has not increased either during the past 150 years or during the most recent five decades.
