Guest post by David Motes- "GW driven by Plant Evapotranspiration Reduction, not CO2 GHG. Solution- More Plants".
"David Motes is a 43-year professional chemical engineer residing in Houston, TX. His 23 page engineering paper as a guest post is titled: "Global Warming Driven by Plant Evapotranspiration Reduction, Not CO2 GHG! Solution- More Plants". The paper is summarized as follows: Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) is quantitatively driven by CO2 induced Plant Evapotranspiration Reduction (PER), not CO2 GreenHouse Gas (GHG) effects. David uses consensus science facts and diagrams from CO2 GHG proponent sites such as the IPCC, NASA, NOAA, and the International Energy Agency to quantitatively prove the scientific fact that PER is a significant driver in AGW. Conversely, CO2 GHG theory remains a largely unquantifiable, problematic theory. By example, 10 CO2 GHG theory problems are quantified and graphically presented. His focus was on engineering quantification versus hereto date presentation of GHG data and theories. Increasing plant life is less expensive and substantially more effective than just reducing annual fossil fuel CO2 emissions (contributes only 1% of existing atmospheric CO2). His paper, engineering quantification, and science is well worth reading and further research" Click to view a pdf on DocDroid.com.

Some initial thoughts on Parler
--Parler's technology is behind Twitter's tech now, but the chance for us to communicate in a place that isn't radically anti-conservative is wonderful. Having a viable competitor could encourage Twitter to be slightly less biased.
--I haven't found any Tweetdeck-like tools for Parler yet. Parler search is currently limited to users or hashtags.
---Even though I have about 150 times as many Twitter followers as Parler followers, the number of impressions I get on Twitter (left) vs Parler (right) doesn't seem wildly different. Why?

Response to Don Cheadle
Don, off the top of my head, here are some things I believe:
1. CO2 is a greenhouse gas
2. Greenhouse gases have a warming effect
3. Human activity has caused atmospheric CO2 to increase over the last 100+ years
4. The Earth warmed during the 20th century
5. Global sea levels rose about 7.5 inches since 1901
6. We can't burn fossil fuels forever without running out
7. Alternative energy research is a good thing
8. Energy efficiency is a good thing
9. Completely destroying the environment is a bad thing
10. I want the best world possible for future generations
Some things I don't believe:
11. The Earth is a more dangerous place at 61F than at 59F.
12. Carbon dioxide taxes can prevent bad weather
13. Increased CO2 causes drought
If the hard evidence supported the idea that trace CO2 is dangerous, I would be fighting very hard ON YOUR SIDE.
CO2 hysteria risks making energy less available and affordable for poor people who currently have no connection to stable grid power. Many of those people's lives could be greatly improved by a big honkin' coal plant instead of some solar panels and wind turbines.
Catastrophic anthropogenic global warming is the most massive scientific fraud in human history.

Hillary Clinton tells thrilling tale of Obama/Clinton planet-saving heroism at Copenhagen 2009
President Obama and I went to the global climate conference in Copenhagen in 2009. We ran into a solid wall of opposition from countries like China, India, and Brazil. The president and I literally had to crash a secret meeting between them to force real negotiations. We marched right by startled Chinese security officials. I had to duck under their outstretched arms. We got into the room--you should have seen the looks on the leaders' faces because they'd been dodging us all day and the president said wow, we've been looking for you. Persistence paid off..we did hammer out an agreement..

"Limits to Growth" co-author "argues that capitalism and democracy will continue to hamper climate action"
'Global warming going from bad to worse'
Randers, co-author of the seminal 1972 report "Limits to Growth," which highlighted the devastating impacts of economic and population growth on the Earth, argues that capitalism and democracy will continue to hamper climate action.
...And capitalism and democracy will remain strong for a very long time because people have trust in that system as it delivered impressive improvements in many people's quality of life over the past century, he said.
Note that "The Limits to Growth" was commissioned by the Club of Rome.

Obama emphasizes threat to public health as part of climate change [scam] push
Obama emphasizes threat to public health as part of climate change push | US news | The Guardian
Murthy said the issue was “personal” for him, since he once lost an uncle to a severe asthma attack. “We have more people exposed to triggers that can cause asthma attacks, and more asthma attacks mean more days of school missed. They mean more days of work missed. They mean more costly trips to the doctor,” Murthy said. “And they most importantly mean more scary moments for parents and for children.” In a background call with reporters ahead of the event, administration officials identified the elderly, children, minorities, the sick and low-income individuals as being at particularly high risk levels for injuries caused by extreme weather.
Warmer is better; 17th century--Global cooling caused "famines, wars and political upheaval"
Historian Reveals Climate Change Lessons from 17th Century
In his book “Global Crisis: War, Climate Change and Catastrophe in the Seventeenth Century,” Parker surveys the broad impact that long, harsh winters and cool, wet summers have had on human populations across the globe. Parker uses firsthand accounts and scientific evidence to examine how changing weather patterns caused famines, wars and political upheaval during that time. The book won the Society of Military History’s Distinguished Book Prize and a medal in 2014 from the British Academy for “a landmark academic achievement … which has transformed understanding of a particular subject.”

Judith Curry pulls no punches: Draft climate "statement is an embarrassment to the APS"
Draft APS Statement on Climate Change | Climate Etc.
Well, their paragraph on Climate Science is a rather astonishing take on the APS Workshop. Their paragraph on Climate Change seems to come from the Guardian. Their statement on Climate Action reiterates their rather crazy statement in 2007
Apart from the issue that no one on the POPA seems to understand any of these issues beyond a superficial level (after Koonins and Rossner departed from the POPA), and that their statements are naive and unprofessional, here is my real problem with this. This is an egregious misuse of the expertise of the APS. Their alleged understanding of issues like spectroscopy and fluid dynamics are not of any direct relevance to the issues they write about in this statement. The statement is an embarrassment to the APS.
...JC message to APS POPA: no one cares about your political preferences in the climate change debate. You have demonstrated that you bring nothing intellectually to the table (once Koonins and Rossner left). You simply have no business issuing a policy statement on climate change. You have embarrassed the APS membership.

Freeman Dyson: It would be crazy to try to reduce CO2
3:20: "First of all there is man-made climate change ...it's a question of how much and is it good or bad..we don't understand the details. It's probably much less than is generally claimed. The most important thing is that there are huge non-climate effects of carbon dioxide which are overwhelmingly favorable which are not taken into account. To me that's the main issue--the Earth is actually growing greener..it's increasingly agricultural yields, it's increasing forests, it's increasing all kinds of growth... That's more important and more certain than the effects on climate.
5:20: CO2 is "enormously beneficial both to food production and also to biodiversity, preservation of species and everything else that's good. The remarkable thing is that these effects which have nothing to do with climate...are so much easier to measure than the effects on climate and so much more certain"
9:15: [On warmists] "There certainly is an enormous religion in which there are lots of true believers who think that climate change is evil and that we're going to run into big catastrophes if we don't do something drastic. That's a sort of belief system which exists...I don't understand it and I don't pretend to understand their motives."
11:00: "The real world is far more complicated than the models...I don't think any of these models can ever be predictive"
13:45 On sun's effect on climate: "The correlation is certainly there. Exactly how the activity of the sun influences the climate is not completely clear. Something to do with cosmic rays...probably an effect on clouds"
15:15 "CO2 is so beneficial in other ways, it would be crazy to try to reduce it"
16:40: "Average temperature of the Earth..is a very poorly defined thing anyway"
18:50: "Carbon dioxide will increase. We will continue to burn oil and coal; probably it does us good. The Earth will get greener as a result"
19:30: "[People from Asia] don't feel pessimistic at all...This sort of mood of doom and gloom...only is particularly in the academic communities, particularly in the western societies...The media have gone alone with it, but I think the general public has a lot more common sense."
20:20: Dyson brought along Lomborg's book "Cool It". Dyson says "I think it's the best general summary I've seen, in a way...I think he's very sound"
21:45: "Man-made climate change certainly is real..question is how much and whether it's good or bad...I would say it's on the whole good..it's not as large an effect as most people have imagined".
22:00: "I'm an optimist...Everything I look at has improved compared to the 1930s"

Efficiency company CEO: "statistics we use to understand global climate phenomena are telling a tragic tale"; solution involves buying lots of efficiency products
Climate Change -- Just a Data Problem?
Unfortunately, the statistics we use to understand global climate phenomena are telling a tragic tale, and we must find a way to change these trends. I believe that a large part of the solution to this process involves using mass production methodologies to roll out efficiency at a rapid and global scale.

The Mask Slips on the Climate Scam
The Mask Slips on the Climate Scam | Power Line
We’re always told that revenue from emissions trading or a carbon tax will be used for energy and climate change adaptation purposes. But Inslee has let the mask slip and made obvious that it is a lie. Liberal politicians especially are drooling for a carbon tax as a new revenue source. It isn’t going to be rebated to taxpayers. It isn’t going to be used as a bargaining chip for a decent tax reform. It’s going to be used to pay for more government goodies.
Inslee isn’t the first to let the mask slip. In California, Jerry Brown is planning to use emissions trading funds to pay for his high-speed-rail-to-nowhere project, on the ludicrous grounds that high-speed rail will reduce emissions. (The opposite is likely the case.) No one should fall for the carbon tax trap.
Baffling stuff from Washington Gov. Inslee: He's selling anti-CO2 policy as being about kids' lungs and education, not AGW
Washington Governor Puts Focus on Climate Goals, and Less on Debate - NYTimes.com
The deeper reason he is pushing for tough new air-quality policies is to combat worsening health problems, like asthma in children, that are caused by pollution. “It’s not the flowers,” he said. “It’s kids’ lungs.”
“You don’t even have to allude to climate change,” Mr. Inslee, a first-term Democrat, said in an interview. “One can support this simply on the fact that you want to support the education of your children.”
