Droughts, melting ice caps and glaciers, rising sea levels and mass extinctions will all be a reality unless the U.S. and the world cut back on carbon emissions dramatically, said James Hansen, director of ...

Technically you would not have to list gunpowder and ammo separately.
The ammo consisted of an ignition source (flint)(rope),
a propelling element (blackpowder)(patch)and a propelled object (ball).
when ordering blackpowder i must purchase a hazmat license.
Blackpowder is listed as a explosive and not a propellant as most gunpowder now is.
Your use of the term gunpowder leads me to assume your intent was for guns and not as a bomb...

It would be for both. For fixed defenses they use to have sappers who would place charges against the walls.

The real point is that no group of 4,000 men with all the equiptment was sneaking up on anybody.

That's interesting.
In what specific battles were sappers used?
How exactly were the charges constructed.
It would seem unusual given the common battle tactics of the period that that was a common practice.
I suppose sneaking is a relative term and perhaps not the best choice to describe that action...

FUUUUUUUUUNNNYYYYY!

I'm still laughing. You deserve a better quote like the one I provided.

As to your expertise, you have none. Hence, you can't judge who's an expert. But you are right I'm not an "x pert."

Let me teach you something about science: science literature is the starting point for all scientific work. And for the communication and discussion of all scientific work. Referencing of others' work is necessary to present the subject under study.

Oh well, don't worry about things you don't have a clue.

You just say things and

sorry friend no judgement here on my end just responding to your post , and no i am but just a man , a simple man who can see ,hear ,and think his own thoughts and come to a conclusion of my own , i don't need x seperts to tell me when or how the world will end ,as neither they , you or i will ever know that day .

try doing your own studies and maybe you may come to a different conclusion than the closed one you have now .

these so call x sperts that you put so much faith in have done more to discredit themselves and their work , through false facts, e mails, faked ,skewed studies, reports , money grabbing than anything i could ever do on these pages , i believe it is you who look at them as climate gods high on the mountain and their EVERY WORD IS GOD !

yes you are correct we need science and people of science to further mankind after all where would we be without people of science and their good works , just not some of the so called x sperts who don't know any more than you or i .

Amusing....

Once a man thought only for himself and that stymied his view of quantum machanics. He felt the concept was jibberish.
I wonder who that could have been ?

i feel just fine and i am sure i still think pretty good for a old fart of almost 80 , the eyes aren't so good though . but i still don't need a so called x spert to tell me we're all doomed from rising sea levels or every time there is a normal earth weather change or cycle like drought ,hurricane, ice storm etc.

these x sperts have been telling us this story for what 40 years plus now and look miami , tampa, nyc, hong kong , etc are still above water , just look at this summer it's hot everywhere in the us global warming ? really how about just a normal earth cycle some years warmer or cooler than others . we all forget that until after w w 2 the nws had limited reporting station ,most were in only the larger cities and not at ever little airport and bank across the country so heat like this went for the most part unreported and undocumented by nws or noaa . ever hear of the dust bowl years ? caused by what ? over farming & heat & drought . looks like this has happened before .

i posted here several weeks ago that it wouldn't be long before some x spert would come out and say this latest round of heat and drought were caused by global warming , and the press release was last week . if these x sperts are so good a predicting climate change then WHY couldn't they predict this years heat and drought back last fall so farmers could prepare .

are you old enough to have known a time in this country when we didn't have satellites orbiting earth and weather info. was gathered by maned reporting stations and weather maps . yes weather predicting has gotten better because of the new toys but we can still only predict weather change for just a few days from today and not weeks, months , or centuries from now .

You should place a question mark at the end of a question. Making errors while pointing out errors is rather futile.

At the age of 71, I'm not thinking of going back to school.
BTW, are you well informed on quantum mechanics, and how much has it helped you in life?
My little knowledge of it didn't stop me from being successful and retiring aged 47.

Hi there, Dudd, nice to see you.
Many thanks for pointing out my atrocious error, although I don't see anything "futile" about trying to help people, do you?

Hahaha...ok
I'm not sure how you are separating climate..from weather...
Unfortunately, I'm old enough to have had a three digit phone

I would hope I can still put climatologists in a different category than doomsayers...
