You request a prize daily for the commander of useless babble tainted with hate covered with spam cut and paste. You obviously know very little about very little. Oh one exception you do know about the point on top of your shoulders you claim to call a head.

I gather from previous posts the science of chemistry and chemical engineering occupy a low priority in the mountain hideaway of S.E.
Spain.
Perhaps Spain is undergoing a periodic lack of chemicals ?:-)

As i recall a number of practical experiments have been offered that you may try...
Those experiments would provide a basis for useful extrapolition.
Perhaps you have a experiment that would better fit .
Please,..go into detail so we all may evaluate the practicality
of your offering....

One of the reasons that the skeptics are such a force is that the science has moved to the point that there is little need for the scientists to justify their position. They have moved on to another phase, that of how to help mitigate the problems. The skeptics, on the other hand have not consolidated their positions and are still trying to pick at the science. They are a very vocal tiny majority that feel they must bend the ears of the politicians and the media and anyone else who will listen to get them to support their position. They must depend upon politics and the vested interests to bolster their ideals.

So far they have done a pretty good job of undermining the science through politics. They have capitalized upon the sharp division between political ideologies by equating the science with a movement by the government of taking away our freedoms. There is little support of this other than propagandized emotional extravaganza. It harkens back to the McCarthy era and the Communist scare that gripped the nation. There is little solid evidence to support such a position. One thing is clear, time will settle the question. The problem is that this may result in irreversible damage to the planet.

The problem is that this path is bringing more and more irreversible losses to the planet's living.

Indeed. That was also what Richard Muller suggested at the end of an incompetent climate story on PBS this evening.
