The double quotes are important.

The skill you have that I'm envious of is the use of strikethrough. I always forget how to do that.

Re; "slowly": In addition to a temperature spike in the last 45 years, I've noticed tremendous environmental changes just in my infinitesimally short time here. Example Minnesota's transition from a lot of rural area to one continuous cluster-fkkk.

Most outcomes have those that are SOL. If the Yankees win the pennant this year, all others are SOL. If I score particularly high in a standardized test, it bumps up the average and reflects poorly on anyone scoring lower.

IIRC extinctions are on the rise, alarmingly so?

The climate isn't a stable thing.
The climate is heating now, due to out emissions.

In the future the temperature may be dropping again. If that happens we might turn to fossil fuel to raise carbon emissions to break that trend. If we manage to get one step ahead we might get to a point where we just have to maintain balance.

Such a pity to burn the stuff we'd need by then today...

Is that true that each ice age lasts 3x more than a non ice age?

Is that true that a given ice age covered new york with a 3 mile high ice layer?
Even a 0,5 mile high of ice layer would be hard to believe.

What's going to reduce electrical demand in the future?
It sure isn't going to be all these people switching to battery and plug in cars.
I thought the idea is replace fossil fuel use.
A third of the energy used by the US goes to transportation and most of that energy comes from liquid fossil fuels burned by the vehicle.
I have already established if a 2 car household gets rid of 2 gasoline cars and gets 2 electric vehicles that house holds electrical consumption could double, but that depends on what kind of vehicles they get and how far they drive.
We tried the corn to alcohol thing that's completely dependent on natural gas so that's a dead end.
*'What' is not yet germane to the question.
*We can talk about that after.
*One notion that eats away at me is,that my electrical consumption is 19% of what a friend is using.On very simplistic terms,if this represented the nation as a whole,which I'm not saying is the case; if the nation,today,was doing what I do,and if we're using 8-TW today,then we could satisfy the entire grid with under 1.6-TW.
*I realize that this is very simplistic,it's just a talking point.
