• How to handle or survive a nuclear blast?

    With the state of Hawaii getting a false message, and seeing stories of everybody going into panic, if this wasn’t a mistake how should people prepare for this? A year ago today, I would never think in a million years I’d have to ask this question, I truly am scared considering I’m in Southern California.

  • Why do people think climate change is not real?

    Why do people think climate change is not real?

    There are more than enough evidence to prove that we are causing it, for example the increasing amount of CO2 in our atmosphere.

  • Will electric cars to combat global warming produce more government surveillance?

    Electric cars do not pay gas taxes, so governments will start charging by mile traveled. This would be used as an excuse to implement GPS tracking. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-01-15/el...

  • Why do we keep ignoring the climate change issue?

    Best answer: We're destroying the Earth for future generations becaue greedy oil companies OWN our elected officials... and all for greedy profits. They mock climate change but won't discuss it with facts or research results, like conservationists, environmentalists and scientists have been doing for many DECADES.... show more

They mock climate change but won't discuss it with facts or research results, like conservationists, environmentalists and scientists have been doing for many DECADES.

    Didn't certain aerosol propellants almost destroy our ozone layer? All manmade, as we're now doing with pollution and poisoning of our air, land and waterways. At first, aerosol producers mocked scientific research and findings... but took notice when satellite imaging proved them wrong and WE took immediate measures, as we MUST do with fossil fuel.

    What will our future generations inherit? HOW much air, land and water can we REALLY afford to continue destroying and poisoning?

    Because like it or not, that is how people are. we all are selfish enough to like the modern facilities that give us an easy life, and greedy enough not to want to give any of them up . Businesses too are tarred with the same brush . They are in business to make money, and if it means altering the environment a little (or in some cases a lot), then they are quite willing to persuade the government to alter the rules so that is doesn't apply to them. It never seems to dawn on them, or the government, that by ignoring the climate change issue, the day will arrive when the pollution is so vast that such processes which screw up the environment will no longer be required , because it will be impossible to live in such an atmosphere. Only then when it is too late will the reality dawn on them.

    Best answer: Temperature is controlled by the mechanism behind the Ideal Gas Law PV = NRT
    P, N and R are constants over time at any particular location in the atmosphere, so the law boils down to two important atmospheric facts:
    1. Temperature increases with pressure as you descend through the troposphere
    2. Temperature at any location in the troposphere is proportional to the height of the troposphere above it
    The bottom of the Grand Canyon is much warmer than the top, because the atmospheric pressure is higher at the bottom.
    The sun shines on the surface of the earth, which in turn emits longwave radiation. This LW radiation is absorbed by greenhouse gases in the troposphere, which maintain their warmth and keep the troposphere from collapsing. Without the energy coming from the sun and the greenhouse gases, the troposphere would shrink and the temperature would be quite cold. During the winter the troposphere does shrink and temperatures go down, because there is less LW radiation being absorbed by greenhouse gases in the troposphere during the winter.
    The surface of Venus is very hot because Venus has a tall, high pressure troposphere. It is not hot because of the high CO2 concentration. CO2 absorption saturates even at very low concentrations, so adding more CO2 has very little effect on temperature.

    Best answer: When Cook et al (2013) arrived at their 97% figure, they found that only 0.5% of the nearly 12,000 published papers they looked at claimed that man was mainly responsible.

    Legates et al (2015) checked that number and found it to be only 0.3%.

    Do you have any evidence that a higher percentage of climate papers now claim that man is mainly responsible? If not, then I suggest that the real number is nearer to 0.3% of 16,167 papers. That is, less than 50.

    My dad would always hit my old dog to discipline her and when my old dog would pee in the house he would beat her. My mom and I would be upstairs and hear what we thought were bird noises, but it was my dog. We ended up putting her up for adoption. I was sad to see her go. I got a new dog, who's housetrained. She's not allowed on the furniture, but when my dad saw her on my bed he beat her with a laptop, when me and my mom came upstairs we saw he beat her so hard she peed. I NEVER want to hit a dog, I remember once she peed upstairs and I scolded her, but my dad got mad at me and saying that scolding a dog is stupid and they dont understand, but she does. He said if I don't discipline her that he was going to take her away. What do I do I hate seeing her being hit, but she is my main source of happiness that keeps me from being depressed.
