Here's a list of the best articles I wrote for Quora on CO2 AGW and climate change, attacking the U.N. IPCC octopus' CO2-driven global warming hoax and their bloomin' onion of lies from every angle, exposing their leaders as hardcore global Marxists intent on framing CO2 emissions as evil in order to scare and trick the Western world into taxing them and ultimately dismantling their fossil fuel industries and falling for their boondoggle of so-called renewable energy (solar and wind power), knowing that this will end capitalism and economic growth and soften their countries up for Borg-style absorption into their global Marxist govt. where everything Western civilization built will be gone forever. It's no joke that it's my attempt to become a new Galileo combined with a new Voltaire and insure my place in posterity. Feel free to take me on in the Quora comment sections if you dare. I include most but not all of the articles. When you read them all you can search for more yourself. My profile claims 2K total. Dig my cool non-PC plain-speaking style, great reach, and know-it-all (pansophist) range of knowledge. These are only my Quora articles.

Why do we blame humans for global warming? How sure are we that the Sun is maintaining its burn rate/temperature? Isn't it possible that it is radiating slightly more heat than it does earlier? What causes the global temperature to rise? Why doesn't the IR radiation coming from the Sun also cause a greenhouse effect?

How long would the Earth take to cool to preindustrial average temperature if we remove all the extra greenhouse gases we added since the preindustrial era using CCS? 3 million years ago, the CO2 levels were the same or higher than now, and we had global warming without any industrial intervention. Today, is it a coincidence that we are contributing, or would it have warmed up naturally? Some climate change skeptics are citing Robert W. Wood's greenhouse experiment as evidence that the greenhouse effect (applied to the atmosphere) doesn't exist. Why hasn't there been a “paradigm shift” if that was really the case? What if after the paradigm shift we find out global warming was not what we thought? How can we better understand what is going on with climate change? What is global warming with reference to evidence? How does an amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere equivalent to four hundred in a million result in the "world on fire"?

When the population hits 20 billion, will we have controlled global warming? If the planet were plagued by a severe ice age, as portrayed in Snowpiercer, what would be a realistic and scientific solution for humankind's survival? Why are there many scientists on the web saying the Earth is cooling and that an ice age will come, and other scientists says it is warming. it is very confusing to the ordinary person. Is the truth something no one knows? If the Earth has been warming for 12,000 years, since the end of the last Ice Age, then why do people claim that power plants, cars, people, and pollution are causing (or accelerating) global warming? Can global warming be stopped or are we all just going to cook? Is it possible that global warming will concentrate its effect between the latitudes of the tropics to create a forceful convection current that draws cold polar air into the temperate zones, creating a new ice age in the Northern Hemisphere? Climate change denial: what are the most rational arguments, in general, against a unified response, i.e. investment towards massive upgrades and technological advancements to our infrastructure, energy, and economic systems? How do man-made climate change advocates respond to the scientific evidence of the cycles of variations in the Earth's elliptical orbit of the sun and changes in the tilt on its axis are main causes of Earth's warming and cooling? If there was no climate catastrophe when the CO2 level was around 4,000 ppm, why is it believed there will be a climate catastrophe, now, if the CO2 level, which is currently around 400 ppm, continues to rise, or just increase a little bit more? What if the climate change continues to accelerate because of the core cooling faster than expected? Can it be stopped? What is the common man expected to do about global crises like WW3 and climate change when the real power and responsibility lies with the 1% richest/most powerful? Can I keep my house warm with trace amounts of greenhouse gases? Are we as individuals powerless to stop or slow down climate change, or are there things we can do on a personal level? Why doesn't air just fall to the ground due to gravity? Are Quora deliberately pushing climate change denial to get more engagement, and ad revenue, in contravention to their stated mission to deliver quality answers? Why do so many global warming/climate change/climate crisis alarmists disable adding comments? Why do they block, censor, and cancel discussion? How would Elon Musk invest another $400 billion to fight climate change? How do you calculate the maximum average temperature of a year? How does the microwave energy heat the water so fast? Is there a multiplicative effect from microwave energy bouncing around? What is the greenhouse effect and how does it relate to axial tilt? What are the links between forests and climate change? Could parasites like cordyceps evolve to infect humans because of global warming? Do you think the Guardian is doing a good job of covering climate change? What awards has the documentary series Faces of Climate Resilience won since its launch? What role does fairness play in The Guardian's reporting, particularly on issues like climate change where responsibility needs to be named? How is climate change affecting global temperatures, according to the Guardian newspaper? How can we address issues around biodiversity and climate change to prevent permanent consequences like extinction? How does the issue of bird collisions at Circa Central Park relate to climate change and habitat loss? Is the Silicon Valley Bank collapse more proof that capitalism doesn't work? How likely is it that there will be an increase in wildfires due to climate change in Hawaii and other parts of North America? How does someone know the exact temperature of the sun though it's not possible for people to get close to? How do you think the new postage stamp will contribute to the narrative about the climate emergency? Do you think Chatgpt or AI can solve global issues, such as global warming? Is it possible to predict a volcanic eruption based on climate data? What measures should be taken to address the alarming rate of glacier melt in Switzerland? Are there any environmental concerns associated with the increased use of portable fans during heatwaves?

What is Ang Tshering's perspective on saving Himalayan peaks from global warming, and how has he been campaigning for it over the years? Can anyone from the scientific community critique my idea? If oil is made from million-year-old microorganisms, why don't we make oil out of fast-growing microorganisms? To replace fossil fuels where no alternative exists, like in organic chemistry? What is the highest possible average global annual surface air temperature on Earth? How can we measure it? Do people who believe in global warming tend to be more intelligent than those who don't?
