man made climate change ain't anything, compared with this

http://abcnewsradioonline.com/world-news/asteroid-that-wiped-out-the-dinosaurs-was-as-powerful-as-10.html

Asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs was as powerful as 10 billion atomic bombs, new research finds

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Ten billion nuclear bombs.

Living where I do, in the Sandhills of Nebraska, I've always been skeptical about man's effects upon the earth and on the climate. When one sees nature unimpeded by buildings and lights, and sees to a faraway horizon 360 degrees around, I think one's more perceptive of the forces of nature as compared with the puny forces of man.

A single streak of faraway lightning as seen from one's front porch, for example, whose energy if harnessed could power the entire industrial northeast for a year or more.

Compared with that, any influence of man upon the earth and the climate would be negligible.

Nature can destroy man a lot sooner than man can destroy nature.

2. Well, I guess if MMCC is not going to kill 75% of life on earth in a matter of months

it’s not worth worrying about. Thanks, Frank. I feel much better now.

11. Not feasible.

If you harnessed all the energy from every lighting strike in a year. It would power the needs of the humans on earth for about 10 days.
You'd have to have facilities to capture this energy within the milliseconds it is exchanged.
You'd have to know which ones will be negatively charged and which ones will be positively charged.
You'd have to have the technology to handle billions of Volts to harness about couple of billion joules of energy in the milliseconds it exists.
And so on..

6. Good point

What is the effect of volcanic eruptions vs. man, which are CONSTANTLY taking place?

What is the cooling effect of clouds vs man? In that respect liberals are right. Global warming DOES cause global cooling. Warming makes more clouds, which results in more cooling.

The ability of the earth to self-regulate its temperature makes anything man does silly

Ever try to figure out what it means in regards to man-made CO2 in the atmosphere?
Probably not.
The loons never bring it up.

Still adhering to the CO2 scare, I see.

You also thought that latent heat wasn't thermal energy.
Shit like that.
I doubt you really want to go there again by telling me I need to get a handle on "heat".

17. If you want to make a big deal over definitions, be my guest

But you had no clue when I asked if outside temperatures and dewpoints affect the performance of an air conditioner. That's not an issue of a definition, that's an issue of not having a basic understanding of what heat is.

Just so you know, watts and heat go hand in hand

18. Oh, your erroneous question. Ah yes.

The one you jumped in and asked whined that I wouldn't answer in multiple irrelevant threads and forum categories.
The one you admitted was erroneous.
What a great example you chose there.

20. See? I told you you don't know what heat is

When the outside temperature and humidity varies, the btu capacity of an air conditioner varies. You have to understand what heat is to understand why.

24. Nope, never said that. I said just the opposite

YOU said the BTU output was the same, no matter what the outside conditions.

I alerted you to the fact that air conditioners are given a BTU rating at 95 degree outside air temperature at 80% relative humidity. It never sank in. Change either one of those, or both, and the BTU capability changes.

In fact, some manufacturers cheat and rate their equipment at 90/80.

Maybe answer the first question before being shown wrong on ones that were already answered.

You've been shown to be one several times.
I've already pulled out your posts to show you lied, do you really want me to dig some more out?
You even lied to say that you were on a jury for one of my posts replying to you.
At least you said you voted to leave it.
lmfao.
