people are strange
23% of carbon dioxide just comes from us breathing. another huge chunk comes from food production. another chunk again comes from distributing that food. it makes fuck all difference whether or not a minority in first world countries have patio heaters on or off.
the opening the window thing is just ignorant though, that heating costs money
the 23% is the percentage human breathing accounts for in terms of global CO2 released annuly. you may say breathing is a 'natural' part of the carbon cycle, but seven billion humans aren't. or what the fuck being natural has anything to do with nayhting. i'd be interested to how exactly nearly a quarter of co2 realased has no effect, but patio heaters do.
"On the contrary, the contribution of transport, building maintenance and, indeed, food production in the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is higher by orders of magnitude: http://tinyurl.com/q5zj9n" .... i never said it didn't... you're the reason i dislike greens, ye wheel out stock arguments and shout everyone else into submission with cries of "THE PLANET IS MELTING".
domestic space heating... that wouldnt be... radiators and such... would it? not patio heaters?
was to prove that we cant do jack shit in a meaningful way, so we try and assuage our guilt by being snobbish to people who like to be warm or like comfort
Just humans. Just humans breathing.
So the other animals and plants and microbes don't emit anything any more?
my bad. i meant, out of all the co2 humans release, that figure accounts for us breathing.
what im trying to prove here is that problem isnt patio heaters. leaving on patio heaters is like an outrageously obese man eating a sprinkle.
Nobody else is. :/
wait... oh.. i thought when he said its rly wamr outside, and his flatmate turnd on the electric heater... oh
regardless. my point still stands
google is your friend
... as for the rest of your argument, either i cant see it, or there just isnt anything that hasnt been covered..
one thing i will say tho, "The reason I dislike climate change deniers" part is horrid, thinking that the only reason people disagree with you is that THEY dont KNOW the FACTS.
also, do you think you could be taking this argument cos of the fact you were bullied at school? you know, to get that feeling of power you never had?
you keep trying to turn this into something its not. no ones denying global warming, but you keep turning this round and round to suit yourself
i wash my hands of you, enjoy your sandals
while downloading spyware into your temporary files?
wow, you need new friends, as well as a system re boot!
up until now i assumed you to be a troll. there is no virus, what i said happened is impossible to happen.
also, i dont have a patio heater.
makes two of us.
He'd have got there eventually!
it's still symptomatic of our retarded, wasteful society. I have similar problems with my flatmate. If your feet are cold, put some socks on, not the heating!
jesus. Mentalists. I've not got dressed today I'm so boiling. This could also be because I was massively hungover though..
I just basked in the warming glow of my smugness.
good for you
no actually, fuck that, where exactly is the smugness in my original post? would you like to point it out to me? cos i can't quite make it out
is your flatmate my sister?
sleeping will be difficult
