Elon Musk is not an engineer just like POTUS Jimmy Carter was never a qualified navy nuke officer.

I am sure these men could have accomplished what I am proud to have accomplished but they chose a different path in life to become rich and famous.

What I do not understand is why the world riches man needs goverment money to fund his ideas.

Bad news Gary, we are in an ice age. Been there for about 3 million years.

I drive US 93 or 95 between Las Vegas and the PNW and see enough EV charging station that I could do it in a Tesla. I also see evidence of our current ice age.

There is a lot of nuclear waste in tanks from making weapon just north of Richland WA. Not a good place to be at the glacial maximum.

North of Las Vegas in the Great Basin they used to test nuclear weapons at the Nevada Test Site. Why not store the waste there? No Glaciers there for millions of years and not much there during the current glacial minimum.

So geologist can tell us about past climate but there are only theories about why it got colder.

We now have pretty accurate data about ice ages from ice cores taken in Antarctica and Greenland. The data shows that ice ages occur every 100,000 years or so and these periods correlate with Milakkovich cycles whereby earth's orbit and its position in relationship to the sun changes periodically. Presently we have just passed the Holocene climate optimum and we're now headed into the next ice age.

The ice cores also yield accurate data about CO2 levels over the ages. It turns out that when global temperatures rise, CO2 levels follow several hundred years later, i.e., global warming causes CO2 levels to rise, not the other way around. This puts to rest the claims that human activity is the cause of global warming and lets us see CO2 in a more favorable light. The bottom line is that we don't have to waste any more money on windmill driven electric vehicles.

This is great news! Now I can just let the AC unit sit and rot after it goes out of warranty.

In about 50,000 years, ain’t none of us going to experience it.

The reason it's so hard to get people to run for president and nobody wants to be a billionaire is 'cause they're viewed as failures.

Thank God. If you think global warming is bad, wait until we get global cooling.

Failures as billionaires? Clearly they are not.

Failures as human beings? That's the qustion/problem


And... No one wants to be a billionaire? No one?
