The amazing persistence of CO2 in the air has allowed billions of our small emissions, like those from the Enola Gay, to amass into an ever growing threat to civilization. How fast is that threat growing? In a must-see TED talk, NASA climate scientist James Hansen say the current increase in global warming is:
"...equivalent to exploding 400,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs per day 365 days per year. That’s how much extra energy Earth is gaining each day."
That's 278 atomic bombs worth of energy every minute – more than four per second -- non-stop. To be clear, that is just the extra energy being gained each day on top of the energy heating our planet by 0.8 degree C. It is the rate at which we are increasing global warming.
Warmist Holocaust survivor Prof. Tomkiewicz: 'I am using the term 'denier' to make a point...Hitler was clear about what he wanted to do in Mein Kampf –why did people not pay attention?' | Climate Depot
Tomkiewicz: 'These [Hitler] 'deniers' might as well have been called skeptics in their day...I could not and would not 'cheapen' a genocide that killed most of my family and deprived me of my childhood'
Climate Depot Response: 'Your skeptic/Holocaust denier comparisons do 'cheapen' a genocide that killed most of your family.' You are not exempt from being offensive due to your horrible suffering'
