Global warming works over millenia and we have history fior a couple of
hundred years suggests the data base is a bit shallow..

Question or 2..

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...
