Well Bruce he really is a little monster through no fault of his. The parents treat their son like an adult which is fine at home, but out in the world adults look at him like he is a child.funny that.

After yesterday's hurricane's-wortrh-of-rain we got just 1.68 inches. I don't think I've ever seen it rain that hard for that long. It was a real frog-strangler.

That it was Gravs it rained so hard here it flooded the ditches and lawn in short order. I thought a tornado had skipped over us. In about 2 hrs all was gone from sight. I sent a pic to Jim I should have kept it.

Rolling Stone: Why Are Progressives Wary of Technologies That Pull Carbon From the Air?

A decent look into the carbon capture issue. I wouldn't have used that headline, although I have asked that exact same question.

Since the problem seems to be we're releasing too much carbon that was locked up it would make sense to recapture some if we can. But because recapture is complicated and expensive not releasing it in the first place would be smarter.
Probably, and this is just a guess on my part, the ones who oppose it are afraid the public will get the message, hey make as much as you want we'll take it out later.

A cool front will be past us by tonight supposed to be only 78 tomorrow and drier. It will only last a week, but better than nothing.

They don't have to put it anywhere they're grabbing from the air to use for things like carbonating drinks and enriching greenhouse air, rather than creating new carbon dioxide from fossil fuel.

That is almost zero compared to CO2 that is produced. Many of those products simply put CO2 back in the atmosphere - where those products are already extracting CO2 from. That does nothing to address rising CO2 levels.

Once extracted, CO2 must be put somewhere else - not back in the atmosphere.

We should turn it into coal and bury it in the ground.
