Who really thinks it will be several million years before the earth has another ice age?

Neils guy said "orbital eccentricity coincides with the last ice ages" and made it sound like we were heading into another ice age until the late 20th century happened.

Then the question is why did we want to let another ice age to happen?

People don't create carbon. They have to put it into their mouth first.

If you thought 2019 was a rough year for keeping the faith in man made global warming, 2020 will be worse.

I have faith in man made global warming... I just think it will become less and less important to people as time goes on, especially as markets come up with their own better solutions.

I'm excited to see what the next decade holds. Perhaps this is the decade I take to recreational flying.

You didn't listen to the whole thing. We are now changing the chemistry of the atmosphere, and this in combination with other factors, means there won't be an ice age, in the near future.

Why is construction in Arizona happening at night?

People aren't well adapted to work in climates resembling Hades. If you're implying the 0.8C temperature creep over the last 140 years is to blame, I'd disagree. Drop the temp 1C and I bet we don't see construction moving to daylight hours.

You've asked twice. Why do you think construction happens? The
Wall is going up 24/7?

Why is construction in Arizona happening at night?
I listed to every second of it multiple times.
Can an insignificant change to a trace atmospheric gas override changes on the earth's orbits eccentricity that will reduce the sun light that reaches earth by up to 30%?
I don't think so.
Really what's a bigger change, 30% change in sun light during the year or 300ppm or 600ppm?
Because the earth had to go to nearly 0 eccentricity to end the last ice age.

Why is construction happening at night?
Because it's an important project.
I have seen road construction projects on I-495 in Massachusetts going at at night. So what's your point.
It's not too hot during the day to work there.
In new Mexico where it's definitely hotter than MA construction projects rarely go on at night.

I'll clarify - why is construction work happening at night INSTEAD of during the day?
