    Now that thar folks is called a bit of sanity!

    Wonder how much fossil fuels she has burned up traveling around the world?

    Shows you the depths of despair that that magazine has fallen to. Do people even read magazines any more? I'll bet the younger you are, the less chance of it. Meaning, their base must be falling year after year.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    Methane is many times more effective at trapping heat than carbon dioxide. It’s not mentioned as often when considering the greenhouse effect behind the climate crisis because it’s released in comparatively low volumes and will gradually degrade over time. But methane’s potency means that even at low volumes it definitely makes a significant contribution to global warming. That was a big part of the reason that, under President Obama, regulations were set in place to limit the amount of methane that oil and gas companies were allowed to emit, especially by venting wells in areas where capturing all the methane doesn’t happen to be convenient.
    But those regulations were some of the first to be rolled back under Donald Trump. Trump proudly took all caps off the ability of fossil fuel producers to vent methane into the atmosphere. Producers and their supporters in Congress have tried to wave away any potential impact from venting — after all, methane is natural gas, and natural gas has value, so how much could companies really be spilling? The answer, as revealed in a report from The New York Times, is absolutely staggering.
    In just a few hours of flying over Texas sites with a small plane, the Times identified hundreds of sites whose level of methane production puts them in the category of “super emitters.” The leaks came not just from wells, but from storage facilities, pipelines, and every stage of natural gas production. Since fracking generated a surprise boom in natural gas production two decades ago, the level of methane in the atmosphere has been increasing. Even though that change corresponded almost exactly with increased production, oil and gas companies have pretended to ignorance over the source of the methane. But it’s clear that methane is leaking in massive amounts.
    In fact, so much methane is being leaked at such rates that it could be argued that the move from coal to natural gas as the largest source of electricity in the United States has actually created more damage to the climate. But it’s hard to be sure, because so little of this loss is actually measured. And if Trump gets his way, companies will not longer be required to even monitor for methane loss.
    While scientists can easily detect that overall methane levels are rising, tracking that methane back to sources can be very difficult. Even when satellite data or information from aircraft helps to identify a methane “plume” on the surface, the source of that gas can be any one of thousands of wells, hundreds of storage facilities, or anywhere in miles of pipeline. Tracking the methane to a specific source can be all but impossible, especially in areas of high production.
    Producers are supposed to seek permission and obtain permits before releasing significant quantities of methane. But, safe in the knowledge that tracking back a massive one-time release is almost impossible, many companies simply skip that step. They know they can release a blast that’s equivalent to the environmental impact of running a city, and feign ignorance if anyone comes knocking. That’s why the critical factor is forcing companies to measure the methane themselves by requiring monitors on wells, takes, and other facilities. Only by having those monitors on site, and having them regularly inspected, can there be any hope of identifying both accidental leaks and intentional venting.
    Naturally, that’s exactly the requirement that Trump has already weakened, and is seeking to remove completely. Lobbyists for oil and gas were some of the biggest contributors to Trump’s campaign, his inaugural slush fund, and his 2020 PAC. It was no coincidence that his first Secretary of State came straight from the offices of Exxon.




    But it is all good because the free market will take care of it as soon as more of those horrible job killing, business stifling regulations are lifted - just watch.
    It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

    NOAA just released their 2019 Arctic Report Card. Expert scientific conclusion: not good.

    "The Arctic marine ecosystem and the communities that depend upon it continue to experience unprecedented changes as a result of warming air temperatures, declining sea ice, and warming waters. Arctic Report Card 2019 draws particular attention to the Bering Sea region, where declining winter sea ice exemplifies the potential for sudden and extreme change. Indigenous Elders from the Bering Sea region offer their experiences of living at the forefront of climate change."

    But seriously now... did you pretend to compare the hysterical ramblings of a 16 yr old high school child Greta HateBerg to Einstein?

    Really? Serious? (Quoting Ole Creepy Joe) "Come on man!"


    Let's examine this liberal 'logic' fallacy.

    First a definition. False equivalence is a logical fallacy in which two completely opposing arguments appear to be logically equivalent when in fact they are not. This fallacy is categorized as a fallacy of inconsistency.

    Greta HateBerg argues 'world leaders should be lined up against a wall' for denouncing the Commandments of The Church of Warmism.

    Einstein had to flee his country that was lining people up against the wall for not obeying the commandments of a cultist movement.

    Greta HateBerg lectures... no... regurgitates scientific 'facts' proffered by 'scientists' profiting by mining government grant monies & accepted completely on faith by the followers of high & mighty Church of Warmism. Which by the way NONE of their 'scientific predictions' of armageddon, end of times, doom, gloom, WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE! have come to pass much less proven.

    Einstein wrote papers on his predictions which the scientific community scoffed at only to be proven for the most part accurate in the future by scientific methodology.

    Greta HateBerg is a hate filled regressive, a spoiled rich brat, a simple minded idiot whose solution to resolve counter arguments on her unfounded dire predictions of death & destruction is to 'line them up against the wall' & shoot them.

    Einstein was an unapologetic pacifist.


    Einstein was mocked only to be proven correct in future decades.

    Greta HateBerg on the other hand...





    will continue to be mocked for decades to come.

    Wow Bio, I guess Melania's "Be Best" initiative doesn't mean much to you. Can't say I blame you though considering who she sleeps with.

    Parroting Alert: Literal CNN talking point above ignores the realities of a 16 yr old arrogant 'HOW DARE YOU!' CC brat who seeks publicity and disrespectfully criticizes dissenting adults and literally invites commentary to a 13 yr old kid who avoids all publicity and just wants to live his life in peace.
