    Actually, all you have to do is look at the CO2 levels and then follow the science into the rabbit warren far as you want to. This is called "first...

    Hirdy replied to a thread Global Warming in Southern U.S.
    It doesn't matter what I believe. We simply cannot have another ice age with CO2 levels greater than 400ppm. That's simple science. It's already...

    The FG Knot is the only one I use for this connection now. You may need to search for a video to see how it's done, but it's essentially a "Chinese...
