Another reason I'm a's only decimal points right?

Because I'm an engineer AND I use common sense...

Get this:  Taking full advantage of Sandy, some guy with a Decimal Disorder, who has signed on to the Manmade global warming religion has laid out for you why we are all in deep danger:

How a Warm Earth fueled Hurricane Sandy


Well, since hurricanes start from ocean surface v atmosphere heat, that's about all the 'real facts' this guy has.  Let's start here:

The Atlantic ocean is five degrees warmer than is was when most of you were born.  Let that sink in for a minute.  The entire Atlantic ocean averages five degrees warmer.

NO.. it does NOT!  I wonder how he determines average reader age, but the point is that the Sea Surface Temperature  is Point Five degrees C, that's 0.5, warmer.

And THEN he claims:

The math behind climate change is simple. Roughly 1/4 of one percent of the atmosphere is composed of gases that  trap energy from the sun.  Carbon released for power and transport has altered that and we are now racing toward 1/2 of one percent doing the same job. The earth is warming.
Which he handily illustrates by putting up a chart showing the atmosphere is 99.95 % NON-Greenhouse.  I guess that excludes water vapor, which is far more effective as a 'heat trapper' than CO2 could ever be.  Whatever. that looks to me like .05% might be greenhouse.  One half of one percent would be .5%  We learned that in grade school, right?  Of course he missed that day  but evidently got the 'Social Science' 

But this takes the Grand Prize Dunce Cap:

This ever-so-slight thickening of the atmosphere alters the balance of energy absorbed and released by the planet.  The process is analogous to the gears in a car.  Rev your engine to 5000 RPM in "Park" and you'll run out of gas as quickly as someone racing around a track with their tachometer in the same spot.  We haven't changed how much energy is being introduced to the system, we've changed how the system is dealing with that energy.
Un-be-freakin-leivable!  Thickening?  Uses same amount of gas just revving as when it's doing work?  ANY car guy or person who has studied high school physics knows better!

This is why I am so damned patronizing to idiots who fall all over themselves trumpeting doom and gloom.
The whole damned article is a lie..  doubtless unintentional, by an idiot who knows nothing but what he wants to believe.. but a lie, nonetheless.

And btw.. when he is shamed and humiliated into dumping this crap into the memory hole, there's gonna be a record of it lots of places including my PC.
