For the last four or five decades, atmospheric carbon dioxide has increased (gasp!) at a rate of approximately 1.3 parts per MILLION volume (ppmv). Today, that concentration is slightly over 400 ppmv. Compare this with atmospheric water vapor which is roughly 15,000 ppmv. Not only is water vapor THE dominant greenhouse gas from a quantitative point of view, but qualitatively, water vapor absorbs more light energy than carbon dioxide, ceteris paribus. To counter this science that so infuriates climate change proponents, they have created a lexicon of confusion. "Oh water vapor falls ou

This winter has been pretty bad for Michigan. I don't think that people are noticing it as much as I am, but it's really bad this year. Of course, last year there were also mounds of snow piled up by peoples mailboxes that were over 8ft tall, but it has also happened this year as well. The difference between this year and last year is that the temperature has stayed very low for a lot longer than it did last year. Right now, the temperature is -2*F outside. It isn't absurd that the temperature has reached, and probably will reach, -20*F. The wind chill here has made my fingers numb at a stagge
