Somebody said something sometime?
Oh well, Now you can believe anything you want. Including that doubling carbon dioxide content in the atmosphere does not affect climate.

Some scientists say it is too late already. Even if we would stop emitting CO2 right now.
Current CO2 levels in the atmosphere and oceans level won't drop in a hurry, causing global warming to continue on, raising global temperature by 2 or 3 degrees and sea level by 50 to 80 meter within a few centuries.
Nothing can stop that. But we can make it worse.

"No it isn't so"...
Hold that thought, it is nice to have hope.
I just don't know for sure how bad it will be.

2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
"In hindsight, I should have placed a bet on the horse that won the race"
"In hindsight, I should have bet more on that horse"
