'Agricultural production is increasing because there are billions of more mouths to feed.' You are correct and we are doing a very good job feeding most of those billions with modern agricultural practices and plants that do better with higher CO2 levels.Tired old strawman argument. Agricultural production is increasing because there are billions of more mouths to feed. It completely sidesteps the effects of high CO2 levels, like ocean acidification and glacial melt.
It's a new site put up by wattsupwiththat.comIts a very funny thing.
There is no record of that website 'everythingcimate.org' existing before last Wednesday, the day before PAMM mentioned it here!
Nor is there any information on the internet for who is behind it or funding it or authored it. Why not?
I guess if you just ignore all the environmental disasters, billions of dollars of damage and lives lost from increasingly devastating weather events, and chronic health problems caused by fossil fuel use, you can make a statement like that.We have since the industrial revolution learned how to harness coal, oil and natural gas to enrich the lives of 7+ billion people and in modern democratically run countries we have learned to do this with minimal impact on the environment.

Apparently linking to the site (first time ever I think) results in ADN concluding I've exceeded my free visits.

What tech are you referring too?I think you are going to see another big technology shift similar to computers. All the technology has been developed in the background its just the will to put it in place. The countries that embrace i will be the winners. Sad to say the US has handed a lot of the tech offshore.
Nuclear , yup, no longer any US nuke companies, the Westinghouse AP 1000 was copied and improved upon by the Chinese. The Russians have the other nuke tech. France has a market but pretty well sticks to keeping their own units running. The big research on thorium reactors developed at Oak Ridge is now all offshore in China. Solar, yup thats mostly offshore. Wind tech went offshore. Hydrogen is probably the only one that still has a lot of US research behind it for now. The mostly foreign offshore wind producers have figured out that offshore hydrogen production is the path forward so expect its going to be developed offshore given the US's lag in offshore wind. Early stage battery tech is still US but odds are once its developed, third world countries will get their hands on it.What tech are you referring too?
