Dan Miller wonders if action towards climate change will go boom or bust. Climate change “is going to dominate our world in the next century. It’s a very big risk, but it’s also a tremendous opportunity, if we make the right choices,” he says.
Gregory Dalton is chief operating officer at the Commonwealth Club of California and Director of The Club's Climate 1 Initiative. He previously was international editor at The Industry Standard magazine, an editor for the Associated Press in New York, and a correspondent in China and Canada for the South China Morning Post, a Hong Kong newspaper.
Proficient in both Mandarin and Cantonese, he is a former term member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
Dan Miller is Managing Director of the Roda Group. He is the former president of Ask Jeeves, Inc., a Roda Group affiliate company. He is currently working with a number of Roda Group affiliated companies to assist them with their business development efforts. Mr. Miller sits on the Board of several Roda Group companies.
At the end of 1994, Mr. Miller retired from his position as Executive Vice President of TCSI Corporation (Nasdaq: TCSI), a company he co-founded with his Roda Group partner, Roger Strauch. Mr. Miller retired from the Board of Directors of TCSI in June of 1997. TCSI is a leading provider of integrated software products and services for the global telecommunications industry.
Prior to TCSI, Mr. Miller was a systems engineer at Hughes Aircraft's Space and Communications Group where he was responsible for designing communications payloads for commercial communications satellites.
One may consider that You are right, taking in consideration what you know.
The problem is that You dont know it all.
If we dont know where the evaporated water (we suspect it disapears in the Ionosphere), we dont know how water comes down (do we know about clouds really?), we dont know about the interaction of wet weather, clouds, and the "empty sky".The empty sky is "Big" and it is not empty.
He is speaking on a mix of things that seem to make sense, that seem to be caused by certain parameters, but, he is missing some important points.
One has to calm down, get to the mountains, listen the nature, and try to see the other " world". I say try to see around it in a better way, because Dan, as all of us, has only a capable vision for half of the day.
Forests are important for the other World, and this other World maybe be now in trouble, as it has been in trouble for some time in the past (the exisiting deserts didn´t pop up because of pollution and CO2), but then these other world recovered again several times and dwindled several times again, to cause meltdown and then makeup again and again of the continental ice platforms, throughout millions of years. Ice platforms didnt dwindle and grew again just because there was an excess of CO2 or absence of CO2. Clouds have shapes, and follow some patterns year after year.
In the end, although Dan has some points of interest, overall is missing the all issue like the majority of all experts of the Weather commissions, because he is missing the basics. And he cant see the basics, he cant measure it!
We dont have little time left. We have a lot of time left.
And in the end, it is not because CO2 that the world is going to end.
In that point you are wrong. But You are not the only one.
Naturally it is good to cut down on emmisions of any kind be it eletrostatic precipitators or be it with solar panels, or be it with something else, but it would be much much better to plant forests because they will atract the rain makers, Confused?. Dont be confused. Something new for you probably, did you know that new viruses and fungal sinuses of all kinds are connected to the other world?
