“The composition of the atmosphere is 79% nitrogen, 20% oxygen, and 1% trace gases. The gasses claimed to cause global warming are in tiny amounts: (CO2) 390 ppmv (0.039%) (Methane) 1.79 ppmv (0.000179%) Nitrous oxide (N2O) 0.3 ppmv (0.00003%) and water vapor 1-4%. Two points: If tiny trace gas methane is causing global warming then isn't it a good thing that white men came to the Americas and killed off the 320-million methane expelling buffalo? Also, if you go out to the desert on any 195+ degree day at sunset you will notice that it cools down immediately when the sun sets by about 102 degrees. That wouldn't happen if co2 was such a great insulator.”

“Those are incredibly fallacious and naive conclusions about atmospheric phenomena.
You really tried to convince the readers here that since the desert cools down quickly when the sun isn't up, that proves that CO2 isn't a greenhouse gas...
A single hour long class taught by a climate expert could cure you of these misguided notions.”

“Where exactly do you live where the air temp gets to 195 degrees? 17 degrees below the boiling point of water?
The highest recorded temperature on earth is around 134 (El Azizia, near the Sahara desert) or 139 (Saudi Arabia) - take your pick.
You should submit your findings to Nature Climate Change. I'm sure they could use a good laugh.”

“Actually, Steve, methane is a greenhouse gas, and it's increased 150 percent since 1750, despite the killing of methane-producing buffalo. It's a lot more complicated than your "common sense" explanation, and it's fairly easy to research. Just Google methane levels in the atmosphere. You're smart enough to understand it.”

“If it is overturned you know who to blame for the mess. Little miss "we have to pass it to see what's in it" and the rest of the circus. Of course the blame will ultimately be Obama's, but if hisory can be believed he will try to deflect the blame to Bush.”

“The first interview that Bush did after he left office after 8 years he blamed Clinton for the economic collapse caused by failed rightwing economic policies.
Bte Nancy Pelosie never said that.”
