Carbon dioxide is a natural byproduct of many natural processes , man is
one of the lesser sources - termites make more ! . But mercury , that didn't
get into the water "naturally" . You must be a well-programmed liberal drone
to even attempt to link the two .

Yep. Heating with wood is carbon neutral in the long run as all wood will
_eventually_ rot and release its carbon. In the short term? Not so much.
I have been heating with wood since 1976 and over that time all the trees
I have burned would not have rotted if left alone.
It's been below freezing here everyday for the past week. Currently it
is 8° F (13 C).
Wait til the 'snowbirds' come back from Florida and find the pipes in
their houses have burst. Leaving the thermostat set at 50° won't help
with pipes in outside walls. That insulation works both ways.
Does wind chill affect how fast the pipes freeze?
I mean, wind chill like today sure feels colder.
I had a service call, and took a long time for the
truck to heat up. I stopped to fuel up, and it was
some kind of serious cold. When I finish eating
this bowl of microwave popcorn, I'm going to cut
and staple up some more cardboard on the walls.
Aluminum edge of the back door going to get covered.
Look, I know you think Alabamastan is the entire world, but it isn't.
Even though the annual average global temperature has been quite
near a local maximum for several years, the result of that is
more unstable weather patterns, hence in this year's cold winter.
Why would you expect the temperature in any given location to be
strictly linearly increasing? Climate is a complex system,
more complicated than the stock market. Over the last hundred
years the stock market has trended upward, even though individual
stock prices have gone up and down a quite bit. The average world
temperature has exhibited similar behavior.
No, thanks. I don't want armadillos and fire ants in Michigan.
And yes, it is all about me. It's intuitively obvious that the universe
came into being so that I would have a place to keep my stuff. ;)
