Carbon not Culprit in Global Warming, Science Is Say Scientists

Question: IF every single American at noon on July 4th placed one average size ice tray outside until melted, what impact would that have on the climate? What about 2 trays? I don't doubt that man has some impact on the climate. However I think these so called experts need to do a lot more research, before we know anything for certain.

Actually it would increase the total heat energy in the area because you had to use energy in the first place to remove the heat from the water to freeze it and that is not an efficient process. Generating energy (electricity) generates a lot of waste heat. Statistically half of all electricity generated is wasted as heat in the transmission lines. More is wasted running all those refrigerators since they are only about 50% or so efficient.

A few years ago a regional newspaper reprinted a piece from somewhere urging all Americans to forgo air conditioners to "save the Earth".
I was so pi**ed-off, I fired a letter to the editor with back-of-the-envelope calculation, showing that if everyone in the world (including Inuits) ran air conditioner at 50 F year round in their McMansions (again, assuming everybody lived in one), it would have raised average temperature by a whooping 0.1 F (I'm too lazy now to repeat the calculations, but I believe this was the number).
Of course, the newspaper did not deign to print it. Cannot confuse public with math.

A new paper that recently replaced the old paper that settled the science of global warming is now out - and not a moment too soon, either.

Because the new paper essentially says: “Um, guys? Never mind.” :/).

Ok, they don't really say that, but actually they really do. 

“Sea level rise is one of the big issues of global warming. It could potentially swamp coastal cities or make them far more vulnerable to storms, such as Hurricane Katrina,” says Science World Report, apparently a wholly owned division of Wayne’s World Publishing, operating under the motto...
