Not only that, how many carbon credits are being used by all the people going to, performning at, etc. Al 'I invented the internet' Gore's concert today?
  Plus - how hopped up was his dope smoking kid's Prius that ran 100 mph in Orange County this week?

  Too hot to work out in the shop much today so I figured I would sit 
around and scratch my brain a bit.. Been thinking about green house 
gases and how they work. Co2 and methane, I think (dangerous) heat the 
earth by reflecting infrared heat back downward. Ie they trap the heat 
in the atmosphere. Now here is my question...if they reflect the heat 
back inward wouldn't they also reflect the heat from the sun in those 
wave lengths back into space? Seems that would be a net zero gain. Any 
atmosphericic chemists or other smart people out there that can explain 
it to me?

Next, how the heck do I figure out how much hydrogen and oxygen are 
produced for given voltage, current and electrode sizes? I know that 
electrolysis works at a minimum of 1.2 volts and just milliamps, but 
what if the volts was say 12 volts or 24 volts or 40 volts and 20 amps? 
If the electrode is too large will it be effective as a gas producer 
because the current density is lower?

mayf, way off and far out in a hotter than hell pahrump...
