If you look to Venus as an example of what greenhouse gases (GHG) are capable of:

Venus has a highly reflective outer atmosphere yet with the composition of the atmosphere being over 95% CO2 it results in a extremely hot temperature. The planet revolves very slowly such as the night is 163 Earth days in length. Even during that Venus-night hardly any cooling occurs and that is because the GHGs hold the heat in

"max temperature on Venus is only a mere 860f! How come?"

hmmm?

I dont know, but you sure dont know

as I mentioned the atmospher is highly reflective

460c = 860f

460c is 'mere' ?

you are confused. Mercury is closer to sun and cooler

Mercury ranges from -316f to 800f

sounds like radiative cooling to me i.e. no greenhouse effect

your mind is gone, far gone ........and sick

(wrong forum)**2, this whole argument is a bad duel of rival shibolleths over fashionable junk science. My sympathies go out to anyone really trying to figure out what's really going on.

A customer says:
E. Vader - "I didn't know we were emitting more H2O into the atmosphere"

If you're going to list everything you don't know, this could be another LONG thread. In this case what you don't know is the concept of a "feedback". We have increased the concentration of the trace gas CO2 by 40%, plus larger proportions of NOx and CH4, and the warming they contribute increases evaporation, not to mention raising the convection threshold. Thus, more H2O vapour is held in the atmosphere.

Clear now?

Report: The NCSE is apparently now offering science teachers advice on confronting AW-Denial as well as creationism:

Apologies for cross-posting, but we now have a cross-thread.

A customer says:
Mvargus - "Funny, CO2 hasn't be observed to have the same effect."

So what is it again that keeps the Earth from getting as cold as the moon during the night?

"If CO2 is really a greenhouse gas. the vessel with the extra CO@ will be hotter."

How much hotter? Just to @ decimal places will do.

"the vessel with the extra CO@ will be hotter."

perhaps so , perhaps not

the glass keeps the heat from escaping

Ken Wolfman - "Its called climate change now, not global warming."

So what was it called in 1988 when the IPCC was founded? (Hint: Begins with "CC".)

Another sad case suckered by Luntz.

This is a simple argument that doesn't need any evidence from either side:

trash is bad.
picking up trash is good.
everyone picking up trash is better.
no one throwing trash out in the first place is best
trash is pollution
therefore stopping pollution is good.
who needs more? is anyone out there actually arguing in FAVOR of pollution? anyone in FAVOR of overpopulation? anyone in FAVOR of smog, oil spills, and radioactive accidents?
what a ridiculous waste of time to even debate, it doesn't matter if climate change is true or false or man-made or created by cow farts, whether or not clean energy and recycling stop climate change is irrelevant so long as leaves a nicer planet for our grandchildren....

Well put. BTW, those cow farts (lots of methane) are also kind of man-made. Good to know that first steps towards in vitro grown meat are being done:

Armadillos have been migrating to Illinois. They like hot climates. Interesting, yes?

The armadillo's been extinct for almost 50 years, the highway department has just been moving the bodies around since then--nobody knows why, but that's the reason you can't find anyone who has seen a live one, even in West Texas.
