Although I can confirm I was spooning out Ice-cream with a new ice-cream scoop.
I am not in a stage to be firing east yet. So far I am still testing west at the east.

For the record, I don't believe in the theory of human caused global warming. If you look back at the historical record you will see that every 400 years there is a temporary climate change trend where it seems that the Earth gets a little warmer and weather gets a little wonky. And the last such trend happened in the the early 1600s. Thus, if that trend continues the early 2000s is when the next such warming would occur. Which is now.

Well hort would personally rather be safe than sorry. The temperature hasn't gone up much yet, historically it trails a bit behind the CO2 levels. Now *those* are up quite a bit since the industrial revolution.

When I'm old, I'd rather look back and say, "gee, we should've gone ahead and kept burning fossil fuels, we would've saved some effort" instead of saying, "gee, we should've switched to renewable energy, we might have avoided the death of our species."

I'm not saying we shouldn't develop new energy sources. We really should. Eventually fossil fuels may run out and we will need something better then them to reach what I see as mankind's manifest destiny of interplanetary expansion. An infinitely renewable energy source would be a major step forward in bringing a modicum of peace to Earth as well.

But I am saying we shouldn't intentionally hobble ourselves for no good reason in the meantime.

A (partially) easier solution would be to simply cut 10 to 20% of Earth's population. Without the requirements for electricity, food, consumables and space, we'd be much better off.
