Not only that, but it isn't 100% renewable energy either. They may purchase an equivalent in renewable energy generation, but their actual delivered electricity sometimes comes from non-renewables when demand and nature don't align perfectly, which is constantly.

In other words, if everyone followed suit, we'd just have intermittent electricity since there'd be no variable non-renewables to smooth things out.

A slower pace of CO2 rise would be much easier for the world's organisms to adapt to though, so on that point I'd agree.

Ah, so we're only helping them to die. Cute.

Zoos don't generally try to actively kill animals. Usually the just provide the environments necessary for them to live while entertaining us monkeys.

Extinction occurs all the time (99.99 of all species are extinct), and the imperative to save them is only in relation to how much we value their existence. People seem to like 'em well enough, which is why zoos are appropriate places for them to live.

I think wooly mammoths would be neat to have around, and the last ones lived just 3200 years ago, but am I really that worse off now that they are extinct? Probably not.

All AGW denier arguments.

A video camera zoomed in on a fellow, decked out in fishing garb with waders, standing in a pond. A tighter view showed he held a baseball & glove. He said he used to play baseball on the field he was in..... that was no longer a field.
Yeah, no stories from 20,000 years ago, just a story of his boyhood. Other views in Maryland, showed homes that were on the edge of abandonment, because the rising tides were coming in.

AGW deniers used to pump the idea of a nearing ice age because the sun was at a Total Solar Irradiation low. For the last 13+ years, the sun has been radiating at a TSI low. But, Earth bio-sphere temperatures continue to rise..... in the air, in the water & in the dirt. But, AGW deniers percentage-wise, still got lots of muk luk boots, while they wait for the ice age.

It's Australia! Australia tries to kill everything — coral to people. Zoos elsewhere are refuges.

Nah. Sea level rise.... First, time an AGW denier blames AGW on beavers. But, that's what AGW deniers do. Blame everything else, while smokestacks & exhaust pipes pump only pure sweet emissions that can't change the Earth.

Did they zoom out to see how rising sea levels affects a pond?

First[coma] time?

An is correct for Anthropogetic, but is it correct for an acronym? A AGWD?

Better than blaming beavers. You are an AGW denier..... maybe a liar & a whiner, too. Put those two phrases together & ya got a poem.
What u say? Tide's in? In 200 years, it'll be sea level rise is in... to stay. People already see a different Bay of Fundy tide. The heated water of Massachusetts is driving lobster out of the state, further north to Fundy. At least, temporarily.

You get blamed for being an AGW denier on an auto website? What a good place to be when you're an AGW denier. Do you feel cozy & protected?
