Oh! The irony of cement.

Until recently, the MMGW Alarmists have been suggesting that we use cement to sequester CO2! The funny thing is that they always suggested this nonsense with a straight face.

While I hate posting anything from CNN, every once in a while the story is factual and lacks leftwing-lunatic political bias.

Making cement is not only energy intensive, it emits the CO2 that was previously sequestered in the limestone aka calcium carbonate (written CaCO3).

(aside) The Northeast is suffering a Severe Heat Alert with temperatures >100F. The Alarmists blame MMGW. Yet in less than 90 days we'll be flirting with temperatures <32F. Temperature changes within a day can exceed 40F yet the Alarmists are worries about 2F to 5F in a century. I for one am sick of their complaining!

Does the climate change? YES! Of course it does. Is it a disaster in the making? No.

I'm thinking of burning a ton of coal (not in effigy an actual ton) to celebrate CO2. Anyone got marshmallows?

    Funny, they don't believe in cycles either...shame, they would see the exact weather patterns our parents saw in the late 30s.

    A women came into CT Hospice Sunday and stated that the weather is bad cause of global warming. When I mentioned that the coming week would see temps in the 60s in a few days, she said...that too is global warming.
    I laughed as I stated that these are cycles that repeat over time and she started in with the environment this and environment that. I plainly stated that environment and climate are two different things. Environmental conditions do not cause long term weather patterns, then said, if you have lived in New England for any length of time, you would know that if you didn't like the weather all you had to do is:...wait a Minute.

    I could have gotten in to the whole carbon thing but instead I just suggested looking up the Maunder Minimum.
