I thought cars and factories were causing the warming.  Now you're telling me that it's still happening even though no one is driving or working?  Will Liberals finally realize they are being strung along by green socialists with an agenda?

We have been contaminating this planet in earnest for the better part of 200 years to the best of our ability to get to this point, and you are surprised that slowing down for a couple months hasn't solved the problem?

First of all, contamination?  The primary "contaminant" we are releasing is CO2.  What is the foundation of the Earth's biosphere - where the overwhelming majority of its energy is assimilated?  Photosynthetic organisms.  What do photosynthetic organisms eat?  CO2.  We are literally feeding the planet from the bottom up!

Second, we've hardly been doing out best at it.  Compared to China it looks like we're barely trying.

If you thought that, you were wrong -- to the degree whereof you ought not really be venturing an opinion.

The heat energy primarily comes from the Sun. Our increased greenhouse gases cause more of that heat energy to be trapped in the atmosphere, rather than radiated back into space.

And plants turn that sunlight into sugar!  So not only are we feeding them carbon but we are also trapping the sunlight they use to turn it into sugar.  If a little heat gets trapped in the process then it will help keep the plants warm.  I don't know how much gardening you do but most of my plants really dislike freezing temperatures!

Excess CO2 is not being turned into sugars and other hydrocarbons. If that were the case, there would be no excess CO2 in the atmosphere.

Ever stop to watch a plant grow?  Even the fastest growing photosynthetic organisms like kelp and bamboo still grow at imperceptible rates.  It will take some time but I wouldn't worry about it too much.  They will catch up eventually and then we will be living in a veritable Eden of bamboo and sargassum.

Plant growth has accelerated.  Which is a very nice side effect, but nowhere near a nice enough tradeoff for increased global warming.

Besides, cutting down on CO2 emissions generally cuts down on other airborne pollutants.  Which is also a nice side effect.

Increased CO2 increases plant growth. It also decreases their water intake.

https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/​1​0.3389/fpls.2018.00924/full

Elevated atmospheric CO2 (eCO2) enhances the yield of vegetables and could also affect their nutritional quality. We conducted a meta-analysis using 57 articles consisting of 1,015 observations and found that eCO2 increased the concentrations of fructose, glucose, total soluble sugar, total antioxidant capacity, total phenols, total flavonoids, ascorbic acid, and calcium in the edible part of vegetables by 14.2%, 13.2%, 17.5%, 59.0%, 8.9%, 45.5%, 9.5%, and 8.2%, respectively, but decreased the concentrations of protein, nitrate, magnesium, iron, and zinc by 9.5%, 18.0%, 9.2%, 16.0%, and 9.4%. The concentrations of titratable acidity, total chlorophyll, carotenoids, lycopene, anthocyanins, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, copper, and manganese were not affected by eCO2.

Yeah, I think that's a great side effect of it.  But again, I don't think it's worth the trade-off, unless you're living in Russia or Canada.  And the decreased water intake from agriculture will be greatly offset by the saltwater intrusion into the water table.

But I remember arguing with a certain poster (whidbey) about the growth and water intake aspect of it.  He insisted I was wrong, that there could be nothing positive about global warming.  Like it was some sort of evil force.  I felt like I was arguing with a creationist.

Been 20 degrees below normal here for two months.

How come no one is saying "Global Cooling" .... but get a week of unseasonable highs and everyone thinks the sun is falling.

it is called climate change but the important part is the oceans are heat sinks and effect the jet streams. water has an almost unique property. it is less dense in its solid state than its liquid state (ice floats) and that stirs the drink (usually cold goes down and heat rises, if water did that there would be no life on earth). oceans get too hot and the jet stream gets erratic and if it dips low it brings all the arctic air with it.
