Sorry John, I'm not alarmed.  I detest Trump as much as anyone, but I agree that "man-made" global warming is a sham.  It is the only subject on which I agree with him.

Washington post is the source for that last addition.

On Friday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere rose at a record pace for the second straight year, reaching 401.5 parts per million. The two-year surge in carbon concentrations that took place in 2015 and 2016 has no precedent in the 59 years in which the agency has been tracking the level of CO2 in the atmosphere.

Spicer downplays EPA chief's carbon dioxide emissions denial

White House press secretary Sean Spicer downplayed EPA head Scott Pruitt's comments on March 9 that carbon dioxide isn't a primary contributor to global warming. (The Washington Post)

There is no immediate evidence that any environmental organizations organized the deluge of calls to the new EPA administrator, but a single comment on Reddit may have helped spur the outpouring of criticism. The post outlined how Pruitt’s opponents could contact his office, writing:

“Here’s the number to call his office (EPA Office of the Administrator) to offer your feelings about Pruitt’s comments: (202) 564-4700. Script: Hi, my name is _________. I’m calling because I’m seriously concerned about Scott Pruitt’s claim that CO2 is not a major driver of climate change. The role of CO2 and humans as drivers of climate change is widely accepted among the scientific community, and I’m deeply concerned that Mr. Pruitt, as the head of the EPA, rejects scientific evidence.”

Donald, you may not be aware that Google search results have been "hacked" by right wing extremism. Robert Mercer, an ultraconservative climate denier billionaire who is a computer genius has shifted both Google and YouTube results using  AI, big data mining, and bot armies.

See Robert Mercer: the big data billionaire waging war on mainstream media

Google’s search results on certain subjects were being dominated by rightwing and extremist sites. Jonathan Albright, a professor of communications at Elon University, North Carolina, who had mapped the news ecosystem and found millions of links between rightwing sites “strangling” the mainstream media, told me that trackers from sites like Breitbart could also be used by companies like Cambridge Analytica to follow people around the web and then, via Facebook, target them with ads.

A couple of days ago I entered the below URL which is a google search page.  I received a note from someone that said it only shows a google search page.  I know.  But look at the subject of each of those entries on that page.  They all say that global warming is a scam by the UN to kill capitalism.  Read a couple of the entries.

https://www.google.com/search?q=christiana+figueres+capitalism&...

I think I wrote on one of these threads that technologies  and automation  are the main causes of unemployment,  Somehow the UN is trying to change us to some other way for everyone to get a ;piece of the pie.  I just put it out there for some feedback on your feelings.

Joan to answer your question, I think it's really important. I don't like to be in an echo chamber I like all my ideas challenged. Wanted to see if I had overlooked something about Bates.

TED The magic washing machine | Hans Rosling

Hans Rosling: "Me and my mother said 'thank you industrialization, thank you steel mills, thank you power station, and thank you chemical processing industry that gave us time to read books.'"

I disagree with his politics but I appreciate this sentiment. Lots of things that might be bad for the environment enrich our lives enormously. 

He died recently.

Catastrophic fire conditions for New South Wales, Australia this weekend.

Australia swelters, you know coal-loving Australia. So they're blaming the power blackouts on wind energy. Are they too much like the USA?
