It was warmer 1000 and 2000 years ago

Yeah Samm. It is endothermic. And admittedly it was kind of a trick question. So, I had this 5th grade teacher come to me and said: “We can’t teach this kid anything more, can you do something for him.” He was nine years old. So I said bring him up. He came with his mom and the books he was reading, which were about relativity. So I asked the kid, suppose you have two lead boxes on an equal-arm balance and and the arm was horizontal. Suppose you could heat up one of the lead boxes. Would the arm stay balanced, would it go down, or would it go up?

Would would you say?

He said that the heated box pan would go down. I asked him why. He said that heat translates to motion, and that relative motion increases mass. It was a relativistic argument. He was right.

Only one of two geniuses I’ve taught in 31 years,

I probably would have got that one wrong. :slight_smile:

The first time I was asked that, I got it wrong too,
Hang in there.

And I thought I was smart as a child. That’s not the answer I would’ve given.

I was learning about relativity at age 10 or 11, so I’m not too far off of that kid.

I am one of those guys. Man has some impact on climate, but it is insignificant. Before climate became such a hot topic(in the 60s, when there was more honesty), there was a news story about the average earth temperature rising some percentage of 1%. The focus of the story was the volcano that just erupted, and that in one day had reversed like 20 years of temperature rise.
There is simply too much money involved for me to believe any of the individuals involved.
The original researchers were caught fudging the numbers for their computer model.
There was cherry picking of sensors from around the world. Government agencies made adjustments to historical data “because it was not accurate”. Our former vice president flies around the world in his private jet, making millions of dollars crying wolf, or chicken little, you pick!
Co2 is not a pollutant, it’s plant food.
Too many researchers looking for grant money that more than likely comes from leftist controlled sources. What outcome can you expect?
Give me imperical data, not some computer hockey stick model with a consensus of like minded researcers using the same questionally sourced data to get the same result.

Another unmentioned data point, some of the areas that are supposedly being flooded by rising water, are in fact sinking. Verified by gps and moon reflective measuring. I do not doubt that there are exceptions.

You sure sound like you know what you are talking about. Are you a scientist perchance?
