In the case of the video link I posted, why would a physicist ruin his reputation?

Which all, that one disagrees with, can be accused of.

Any attrributions that this physicist is only driven by money?

I said the same in one of my last replies to Yap. Which are very few :)

Are your agreeing with Yap's, or any another cursing posts? If you do. We disagree.

My point (which appears to have been missed) was that anyone can post any cr*p on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube... they are not reliable sources of information.

Hmm... Trump the Genius from Karlstad seems to like William Happer.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Happer#Climate_change
In 2017 following the election of Donald Trump into office, Happer met with Trump to discuss his potential role of being his science adviser and said that he would take the job if it was offered.[16] Happer described Trump as "very attentive" and that the president's concerns "were that of a technically literate person."
Trump pays a lot of money to people that agree with his view.

The Princeton atomic physicist is no climate scientist – and he’s pushing the same old denier myths
https://www.theguardian.com/environment/planet-oz/2017/feb/21/trumps-potential-science-adviser-william-happer-hanging-around-with-conspiracy-theorists
“There’s a whole area of climate so-called science that is really more like a cult,” Happer told the Guardian. “It’s like Hare Krishna or something like that. They’re glassy-eyed and they chant. It will potentially harm the image of all science.”
Happer has also compared the “demonisation” of carbon dioxide to the “demonisation of poor Jews under Hitler” – because a Nazi reference will always get you noticed.

Ignorance on steroids.
http://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/388161-gop-lawmaker-says-rocks-falling-into-the-ocean-is-causing-higher/
A Republican lawmaker on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee said Thursday that rocks from the White Cliffs of Dover and the California coastline, as well as silt from rivers tumbling into the ocean, are contributing to high sea levels globally.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) made the comment during a hearing on technology and the changing climate, which largely turned into a Q&A on the basics of climate research.
Mo Brooks forgot to mention all people who pee into the oceans.
At the hearing, Brooks also argued that the Antarctic ice sheet was growing; whilst it has grown in the past, it has shrunk recent years, and the earlier growth does not disprove that climate change is occurring.

The climate is very changeable; in summer, storms are very frequent, many fall victims to the vivid lightning, and the wind is often so strong as even to blow over men on horseback: during the winter there is no rain, which all falls in the summer, and then scarcely enough to lay the dust, while the storms of hail are terrible; during Carpini's residence in the country they were so severe that once 140 persons were drowned by the melting of the enormous mass of hail-stones that had fallen.

Well you do have something in common with Jules Verne:

Neither of you can tell the difference between climate and weather.
At least he had the excuse that he was trapped in the Victorian era...

May 25 (UPI) -- As carbon dioxide concentrations in Earth's atmosphere increase, the nutritional value of rice will decline, new research shows.

Researchers with the University of Tokyo tracked rice growth at experimental field sites across Japan and China. A system of pipes delivered different levels of CO2 to the rice plants. Wind sensors and gas detectors helped scientists ensure each plant was exposed to the correct amount of CO2.

Scientists analyzed rice samples from the experimental plants, measuring the amounts of iron, zinc, protein, and vitamins B1, B2, B5, and B9 found in each.

Their data revealed an inverse relationship between CO2 levels and nutritional qualities -- the higher the CO2 level, the lower the levels of vitamins and minerals. Researchers published the findings this week in the journal Science Advances.

But they have a fair point. How have we allowed ourselves to get into a position where so much of our food chain is critically dependent on somebody else's by-product - with no control over the supply?

I hope the food 'industry' - if there is such a thing, rather than independent non-collaborative companies - put some urgent planning into alternative sources of supply. Why not use atmospheric extraction?

I don't understand the problems at breweries, Isn't CO2 a byproduct of the fermentation process.

Back to thread subject, I read somewhere this week, but now cannot remember where, that the last time the worlds CO2 levels were this high the oceans were a 100 ft higher. That would put many places underwater, including Clyde's present state.

Well this weather here is getting hot.
Our last May doesn't happen in more of 3 times in a million year according to scientists.
And it looks like June will be the same.
