The air we breath out is about 40,000 ppm co2

Wonder what the co2 levels are in enclosed places, such as bedrooms, offices, classrooms, cars, planes, inner city cafes for the green left elite social class, ISS, etc etc ?????

Evidence is great

I posted evidence from the BoM to support my view that cyclones have not increased in frequency or intensity and alarmists lost their marbles

The chief scientist of Australia has clearly stated that there is no empirical evidence to support the alarmists view on global warming

The chief scientist also clearly stated that reducing Australia's co2 emissions to zero would have zero impact on global warming.

The climate is changing, it has for billions of years and will continue for billions more. Humans did not start that, humans can not stop that.


Would that be that great scientist Andrew Bolt? Because if it's Finkel you're quoting he seems to disagree.

"Let me be clear, we need to continue on the path of reducing Australia's carbon emissions. The fact remains that Australia's emissions per person are some of the highest in the world." Dr Finkel.

So you disagree with a 'believer' scientist that states there is no empirical evidence to support your doomsday prophecies. Good one. What a joke.

One day your prophecies of the climate reaping may come true. In the meantime go live the zero co2 life you think we all should, go live in a cave and and only eat what you find on the ground.

It is not science, knowledge or understanding you are interested in, this is a religion for you alarmists.

Another piece from "The Conversation"
theconversation.com/climate-explained-why-some-people-still-think-climate-change-isnt-real-124763

" Why do people still think climate change isn't real? At its heart, climate change denial is a conflict between facts and values. People deny the climate crisis because, to them, it just feels wrong. As I've argued elsewhere, acknowledging climate change involves accepting certain facts. But being concerned about climate change involves connecting these facts to values. It involves building bridges between the science of climate change and peoples' various causes, commitments and convictions. Denial happens when climate science rubs us up the wrong way. Instead of making us want to arrest the climate crisis, it makes us resist the very thought of it, because the facts of anthropogenic global heating clash with our personal projects. It could be that the idea of climate change is a threat to our worldview. Or it could be that we fear society's response to climate change, the disruption created by the transition to a low-emissions economy. Either way, climate change becomes such an "inconvenient truth" that, instead of living with and acting upon our worries, we suppress the truth instead. "

You are correct in a way decrepit.......they are going on is THEIR evidence otherwise known amongst the Truth community as "scientism".

Science should be repeatable.

There have been thousands of skyscrapers brought down by controlled charges and pretty much they all collapse in a similar manner.

WTC 7 was one of those thousands of skyscrapers brought down this way yet low and behold we are somehow supposed to gulp down the NIST science theory / report that it collapsed due to a failure of a cross beam leading to the symmetrical collapse of the entire building.

One minute video exposes the truth. As the song mentions it's all lies.

So you take your car to 100 mechanics. 95 of them say that you should replace the airbag, as it can potentially blow up and kill you with shrapnel. 5 of them tell you that this is never going to happen (because they are in the pocket of Big Airbag/are too busy to do the work/aren't particularly up to date with the research/are a visionary ahead of their time who will be proven to be a genius by future generations). Based on this lack of consensus and the particularly strident viewpoints put forth by the 5 mechanics who are very certain that you don't need to make the change, and because it would be inconvenient to change the airbag, you seek further advice from your trusted colleagues and friends.

After speaking to a guy you surf with, a physiotherapist, a bricklayer, an industrial psychologist and an instrumentation engineer, you now have even further mixed opinions about the likelihood of this airbag thing being a concern, and maybe it is in fact some kind of Deep State intervention to install face-recognition surveillance equipment in your car.

So, you do nothing about it, and some time down the track you hand the car down to your daughter who promptly crashes into another post-millennial while watching Tik-Tok videos while driving. At that point either the airbag deploys and kills her in a hail of shrapnel, or the airbag deploys and works perfectly fine.

To draw the parable to a close, why wouldn't you change the airbag? What is to be gained by not doing it? The majority of interventions that would be required to address climate change are net positives for society anyway, so what is the fight against?

If you saw plastic bags littering your local beach, wouldn't you put them in the bin, whether or not you believe the science behind microplastic loading in the food chain? If you can get reliable power that doesn't produce particulate matter or rely on open-cut mining or imported oil, why wouldn't you want it, whatever your belief on the influence of CO2 emissions? If you didn't have to pay for fuel and didn't have to have car noise and emissions on the roads you live on, why would you say no to that?

Ultimately the proposals of Kyoto Protocol/Paris Agreement etc are achieved by increasing renewable energy, reducing pollution and protecting our oceans, forests and natural areas. On a site like Seabreeze, who is arguing against that, and genuinely- why? If the 'alarmists' are wrong, what exactly is lost by precautionary action compared with the alternative? In short (and I know this hasn't been) - climate change denial is essentially a call to inaction. Its saying that the status quo of non-renewable power, fossil fuel cars and plastic consumerism is the best that we can be.

Stay cool, roll on seabreezes, love you all. Peace.

A simple question - what laws of physics have been suspended and how exactly?









The two 110 skyscrapers took no more than 11seconds to completely fall which is almost the speed of a free fall collapse.

A primary three schoolkid blessed with a little common sense can easily determine that the lower section of 80 structurally sound floors would have provided MASSIVE resistance to any potential pan caked collapse. It would take minutes not a second off free fall speed dah. The symmetrical collapse of Building 7 again in close to free fall proves beyond any shadow of a doubt explosives were used.








Oh wow, now I understand your mistake; you just don't understrand the way buildings can collapse, and you have no understanding of the time frame in which they can do so.

It is just completely and utterly wrong to say that it would take minutes to collapse sound floors. This was demonstrated in, for example, the L'Ambiance collapse, which occurred in about five seconds - just twice the free-fall speed. Similarly, in the Hyatt Regency walkway collapse, the walkways fell too quickly for people to get off them or under them - it took nothing like "minutes". Singapore's Hotel New World, a smaller building, collapsed within about 30 seconds. The Plasco Building collapsed in seconds; watch it from 39 seconds to about 46 seconds here;

?t=38

See it from 22 seconds here;





Here's another collapse of a skyscraper, in seconds;

www.metabunk.org/s%C3%A3o-paulo-high-rise-fire-and-collapse-wilton-paes-de-almeida-building.t9684/

It's easy to see why this can happen. Once the upper floors start falling, they strike the lower floors at velocity. As Newton told us, the force increases by the square of the velocity. The falling floors therefore create much higher loads on the lower floors than if the upper floors were still stuck where they should be. This extra load is too great for the lower floor, which then collapses itself, and so on in a chain reaction of progressive collapse.

This is incredibly basic - just try hitting something and you will find that a moving object creates more force than a stationary object. Surely you must have noticed this? If not, I wonder how you actually manage to hammer a nail in.

There are around 3500 architects and engineers who have signed a petition calling for a new independent investigation of what happened on 911. Most of them openly state in the petition that the three towers were brought down by controlled demolitions.

Chris - should we not act on their professional opinions calling for a new independent investigation?

The mainstream media is guilty of covering up numerous testimonies of witnesses who were in the buildings prior to collapse. Many who were in the basement and sub basement heard explosions going off and saw numerous dead and injured people. Their testimonies are not consistent with the official story.

So, Peter, you are just going to ignore the evidence that buildings do NOT take minutes to fall down? You are just going to close your eyes to the facts? Is that how it works? Aren't you embarrassed about the fact that you have shown that you don't understand basic physics?

There are three videos in my post above that prove that what you say is BS, and you can't even discuss them? Really?

There are over 15 million engineers in the world. About 1.5% of people suffer from paranoia..... do the maths. It is strange that you apparently believe a tiny minority of some 3500 people out of 15 million plus, but do not believe the great majority of professionals.

There is no reason to believe what you say about explosions etc when you are so utterly and ridiculously wrong about how long it takes a building to fall down, and so blind that you will not even address the ones that, as I have shown above, collapse in seconds.

The evidence is not just from the close to free fall collapse of the three buildings but nearly everything that happened that day appears to now be in question.

For a second time - are you in favour of having a independent investigation to what what happened on that day?

The number of architects per person across the 36 countries surveyed is 2,759. If this average were representative of the whole world (7.5 billion people), that would mean there are 2.7 million architects on the planet.

architizer.com/blog/inspiration/industry/how-many-architects-are-in-the-world/

The number of engineers worldwide is about 10-15 million. But, know that there are dozens of different engineering disciplines. So, there will always be a shortage in several of those disciplines. Still considering that there are roughly 7 billion people in the world, even 15 million is a drop in the bucket.

Peter - are you actually going to try to discuss things? Earlier, you stated that a tower would take minutes to fall. I put up three vids showing them falling in seconds, and you just ignored the fact that they proved that what you said was wrong.

I assume you think that you are honest and reasonable, but you are actually just being bloody rude if you utterly ignore the points people make in discussions with you. The fact is that your claims that towers took minutes to fall are WRONG. Do you have the guts and honesty to admit that your claim about the speed of collapse was wrong, and will you therefore consider that the other stuff you have written is wrong as well?

As far as your claims about explosions; 1- bangs are regularly heard before buildings collapse through structural failure so there is nothing unusual about such sounds. The mechanism of such sounds is pretty simple; 2 - why in the world should I answer your questions if you don't answer mine; 3- No, I am not in favour of having an independent investigation because there is no CREDIBLE evidence that shows that what happened that day was not due to a bunch of AK terrorists driving planes into towers.

Structural failures that were 80 and more floors below the impact area that resulted in numerous deaths and injuries?

Remember these 'failures' happened well before the collapse of the building.

The exact speed of a pancaked collapse I do not know but I can say to break through 80 floors that are all structurally sound is going to take considerable time. In the remains of the debris pile you would see a pile of pancaked floors (around 35 storeys high) on top of each other if this is what happened. You do not see this - instead the debris pile is minuscule with no pancaked floors visible.

The WTCs appear to have been 104 storeys tall. How does that then result in a stack of debris 35 storeys high? Those numbers don't work unless you think that the concrete floors were somehow a third of the storey thickness. These were 'light weight' suspended concrete slabs.


Edit: Here, you go, this is the composition of the WTC floors, taken from science.howstuffworks.com/engineering/structural/world-trade-center-construction-unique2.htm

'The floors that flowed between the supporting walls and interior columns were made from 0.5 inch (1.27 centimeter) thick steel slabs covered in 4 inches (10.2 centimeters) of lightweight concrete.'

Assuming really basic maths and simplifying it, 104x 4.5 inches, and we get something that if stacked flat with no missing debris would be 12m high. Not 35 stories.
