• If ALL of earth's carbon was released as CO2, how warm would it get?

    It seems many are inordinately concerned about CO2 warming the earth. We are currently at 380ppm, up from 280ppm in the late 1800’s, yet still not the highest concentration in history. There is still a lot of carbon absorbed in the earth, and CO2 absorbed in the oceans If it was all released, what would the temperature of the earth be?

  • What is your primary purpose for posting in the Global Warming section of Y/A?

    This question comes on the heels of Ottawa Mike’s question regarding personal “testimonials” and how each person arrived at their present opinion of global warming. It is a very interesting and revealing question and can be found here. http://ph.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090707153851AAGid4l&r=w#AcB5LHjLLXnu77NghZo_ My answer to... show more
    This question comes on the heels of Ottawa Mike’s question regarding personal “testimonials” and how each person arrived at their present opinion of global warming. It is a very interesting and revealing question and can be found here. http://ph.answers.yahoo.com/question/ind... My answer to this question is that I post primarily to provide a viewpoint that will force readers to reconsider assumptions and do further reading and research themselves before throwing their opinion around, or blindly believing everything they are told. Information is key to reaching solid conclusions, but there is a lot of misinformation and disinformation being posted. I also post because I like to teach – something I’m no stranger to. I’ve given classes, seminars, and held community groups on a wide range of topics - often science-oriented – as diverse and complex as evolution, computer security, and global warming. Although anyone is free to answer, I’m particularly interested in the answers of the usual suspects – you know who you are :-)
