If california’s fires are caused by climate change, and….. – forums forums – off topic forum fun electricity physics formulas

Far from being insensitive, I’m so sensitive to the pleas and suffering of those victims of this California fire that I want to know how we stop this from ever happening again. I truly feel for those people (and the animals), and I think we owe it to all Californians to figure out how this happened and do our best to stop it from happening again. electricity 4th grade worksheet That’s not satire, by the way. It’s genuinely what compelled me to explore this issue and write this article.

According to liberal ideology, “climate change” is a radicalization of weather events caused by carbon dioxide emissions from automobiles that run on petroleum. gas constant This belief, of course, rests on the absurd notion that forest fires, hurricanes and droughts never took place before the invention of the combustion engine, but let’s set aside factual history for the moment so we can follow the liberal myth that claims the Earth was a calm, pristine, disaster-less planet right up until about 1920, when the combustion engine went into mass production.

(Those of you who are actual historians, geologists and scientists who are scoffing at such a leap of absurdity, pipe down! We are giving the climate change narrative the benefit of the doubt here, just for argument’s sake. We must now pretend no natural disasters ever took place before 1920, just as we must pretend that people can magically change their gender in complete defiance of their genetics and biology.)

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), each gallon of gasoline that’s burned produces 19.6 pounds of CO2. When 10% ethanol is added — which is generated, by the way, through the production of GMO corn that presents an ecological disaster to the world — that CO2 production is reduced to 17.6 pounds. (If you’re wondering how a gallon of gas that weighs less than 19.6 pounds can produce 19.6 pounds of CO2 when burned, it’s basic chemistry. The extra mass comes from the O2 oxygen in the air that forms with carbon to create CO2.)

According to climate change narratives, all this CO2 makes the weather go wonky. electricity lesson plans year 6 In turn, this sets trees on fire, we’re told, causing burning trees to torch the homes of people who built those homes right in the middle of forests (which always burn sooner or later, by the way, but we’ll discard that fact for the moment…). wikipedia electricity consumption Regardless of what you think about CO2 and forest fires, the most important part to remember in all this is that according to California Gov. Jerry Brown, this is all Trump’s fault.

Now, if you’re wondering how it’s Trump’s fault that the 39.6 million residents of California burn 41 million gallons of gas each day, releasing 739.7 million pounds of CO2 into the atmosphere every 24 hours, setting trees on fire and burning up thousands of homes that were built near trees, you obviously don’t understand climate change logic. It’s Trump’s fault, you idiot, because Trump just did the most wicked thing imaginable: He lifted regulations so that America could produce all its own energy. electricity and magnetism worksheets Yes, America just crossed the threshold of energy independence.

For the first time in recent memory, the United States now produces more energy than it consumes, which means the United States is no longer beholden to foreign nations that have traditionally exported oil to America. This means the people of California can continue to drive tens of millions of cars and burn 41+ million gallons of gas each day without American soldiers having to die over oil interests in the Middle East. California liberals, of course, despise American soldiers, so this isn’t actually a benefit in their eyes. They just want to drive their cars without having to think about where the energy actually comes from, in much the same way they also want to smoke weed and pretend cannabis smoke doesn’t cause lung cancer or heart disease because cannabis is “medicine.” (If you burn it, the smoke is carcinogenic. hp gas online booking hyderabad But don’t tell California weed smokers, or you’ll ruin their buzz.)

Nevertheless, the California commuter lifestyle is only made possible by a steady stream of energy that’s now being produced in record quantities, domestically. In bizarre fashion, the very same Californians who are burning this energy condemn oil companies for making it available. grade 6 electricity unit Yes, only a California liberal could complain about fossil fuels while driving a combustion engine vehicle on a crowded highway with a million other vehicles, all churning out the CO2 tonnage that they claim is burning up their own forests.

It may strike you at this point that if the people of California didn’t want “climate change” to set fire to their trees, they would all stop driving fossil fuel vehicles and thereby drop carbon dioxide emissions to zero. Surely, you say, the answer must be found in electric vehicles, which are claimed by manufacturers to produce “zero emissions.”

California, it seems, wants all the benefits of fossil fuel energy but none of the repercussions of using fossil fuel energy. People who burn fossil fuels are bad, say California commuters who are the very same people burning fossil fuels. They don’t consider themselves to be bad people, of course. Because denialism is the first step in casting blame upon others.

Or am I not allowed to ask that question while citing environmentalists’ own logic? They are the ones who keep saying this, not me. I’m just repeating their narrative here. gasbuddy diesel Don’t call me insensitive for repeating the exact narrative California’s environmentalists have been pounding into our heads for years. I’m just parroting what they’ve been saying for demonstrative purposes.

But wait, it’s Trump’s fault. The people of California are convinced of it. And that’s how they can keep driving and smiling, filling their own air with carbon dioxide while condemning people who don’t even live in California for all the problems of California. It couldn’t possibly be Jerry Brown’s fault, you see, even though he oversaw the utter lack of forest management and water reservoir management that has worsened every drought, forest fire and flood over the last two decades (yes, he was also in power many years back, if you recall).

But if you believe that then you must also blame all the simple organisms of the Earth that produce CO2, since their carbon dioxide emissions dwarf those of the human species. Human activity only contributes about 3% of CO2 emissions to the atmosphere. “Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is replenished mainly from warming oceans but also from termites, volcanoes and exhaling animals, assisted by about a 3% contribution from burning carbon fuels,” writes Principia-Scientific.org. “No rational person could define carbon dioxide as ‘pollution’. It is a harmless, non-toxic, colourless natural gas that is the essential food for all plants which then produce food and oxygen for all animals.”
