Heat wave over Greenland causing massive ice melt

    I sure am glad that Israel has developed mega-scale desalination technology that makes it at least theoretically possible to desalinate a similar amount of water as is melting off the land based Greenland Ice Pack, the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and the world's glaciers.

    The amount of ice being ADDED to Central Antarctica saved our vulnerable cities and towns from the threat of rising ocean levels in the past but I think that the formula is close to changing and flipping in the other direction......... again!

    We now know that Carl Cantrell's alternative theory on stabilization of the climate could work......... at the minimum every cubic meter of ocean water that is desalinated and added to the water table on land will tend to protect towns, cities, homes and real estate that is vulnerable to the threat of rising ocean levels.

    In my opinion a CARBON TAX WOULD DO NOTHING TO PROTECT vulnerable cities and towns from the threat of rising ocean levels... whereas deliberately using desalination technology to turn deserts green could help a lot and could be far less expensive than building sea walls, dams and levees...... plus we would be able to produce food on land that is producing very little at this time... .which sounds like a win - win - win - win - win scenario for all of us.

    Here is what HAS been protecting our vulnerable cities over the past years and decades:

    Jack ponders just what little Israel is going to so with all the salt that the desalination plants produce as an unwanted by product.

    Yes, that sounds promising. Although desalination is no silver bullet - keep in mind that the salt and other nasty byproducts that are extracted from the water has to be taken care of somehow.

    ETA: Doh, @JackRT beat me to it.

    You have been misinformed, AGW is a clear and present reality with extremely serious consequences.

    So do you then set the example and live in a cave and eat bats?
    Use no plastic or gasoline or electricity.
    Wear no clothing with synthetic yarns?
    Wear no clothing at all, since each step of maufacture uses energy derived from 'fossil fuels'.
    Eat only what sprouts in your yard, cause farmers use copius amounts of diesel and gas and fertilizers.
    Refuse to go into concrete buildings since concrete manufacturer creates hugely vast quantities of co2 and energy burned to make it.
    Refuse to travel anywhere except by walking, or maybe riding horses.
    Definitely no flying, driving, boating, shipping.
    Refuse to buy anything made overseas as the ships burn diesel fossil fuels
    I could go on and on.

    If we continue to ignore AGW then some or all of that may be forced on us.

    So, if you can not live a perfect zero emission life, then you should not even try, is that what you're saying?

    You know, dead people have a very small carbon footprint.

    Just saying.

    Do you think the earth is going to die and human civilization along with it, because that is what the climate extremists insist will happen in another 12 years, oops, another 12 years, oops, another 12 years after that.

    I have been around long enough to hear this going back decades. And every time they say its almost too late, but if we take drastic action, we can fix it. It is always almost too late for them.

    If what you said were true it would be disturbing. Fortunately it isn't. Show me a claim in the 1980s, from a reputable source, that states that "the Earth is going to die and human civilisation along with it".

    I shall interpret your failure to produce such support as evidence you have seen the error of your ways and may soon publicly recant. Then you can give your attention to the fact that the consensus views of climate scientists are moving steadily towards the more alarmist predictions. Ill informed resistance such as yours is imperilling, amongst others, the lives of my grandchildren and I do not take kindly to it.

    FoxNews! And you are serious. When I read your earlier post I was angry with you, now its just a mixture of sadness and side splitting laughter. When the laughter stops I'll give you a measured reply. It might take till Wednesday.

    I know I used the same quote just yesterday, but I cannot resist: To quote from Woody Allen in Annie Hall: "I would love to stick around and discuss this but I am due back on planet earth".
