“CO2 levels were around 280 ppm in 1880, when the Industrial Revolution was getting started. Today, they are nearly 50% higher. â€œBut wait!â€ the climate skeptics will cry. â€œCO2 levels have been higher in the past and the world is still here.â€ Thatâ€™s true. During the mid-Pliocene warm period about 3 million years ago, carbon dioxide levels were 400 parts per million or above. But hereâ€™s the kicker. Ocean levels back then were more than 60 feet higher then than they are today. Think about that for a moment.”

“HOV lanes in California has been a powerful non-financial incentive that helps drivers make the switch to a plug-in electric vehicle (PEV). Nevertheless, California amended its HOV lane policy so that decals are now only eligible to remain on the PEVs for three years, after which the PEV is no longer eligible for the HOV lane.”
See Boooh! California Bows To Industry Pressure, Reduces HOV Lane Access For EVs. Fight Back!If your house is afire you don’t fiddle around. You get out safely and fight the fire if it’s possible to do that. What’s with the stupid reactions to global warming? Continue dumping CO2 into the atmosphere at greater rates? Invest in coal, oil and natural gas? Go slow on EVs? Gee! Is there intelligent life on Earth? Get with the programme. Fight the fires feeding CO2 production in your cars, trucks, trains and homes. Use solar, wind, wave, tidal and hydroelectric power instead of burning stuff.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
