How is that related to global warming? Body heat?

I'm sure the downturn in industrial activity is having an effect on global warming just as it has with air pollution.

One of the few good things to come out of this pandemic is the reduction of pollution and atmospheric gas levels that are having the effect of slowing global warming.

The other party was a climate activist, also computer models
Suitguy is not bitter.

feels he represents the many educated and rational onlookers who believe that the hysterical denouncement of lay scepticism is both unwarranted and counter-productive

The problem, then, is that such calls do not address an opposition audience so much as they signal virtue. They talk past those who need convincing. They ignore actual facts and counterargument. And they are irreparably smug.

Can't believe this thread was "frozen in time" for almost a year and a half. Anywho....

South Pole posts most severe cold season on record, a surprise in a warming world

While the rest of the world sizzled, the South Pole shivered with an average temperature of minus-78 degrees over the past six months.
The average temperature at the Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station between April and September, a frigid minus-78 degrees (minus-61 Celsius), was the coldest on record, dating back to 1957. This was 4.5 degrees lower than the most recent 30-year average at this remote station, which is operated by United States Antarctic Program and administered by the National Science Foundation.
We don't have a global warming problem, we have a cooling system distribution problem. We need better ductwork throughout our world.

The 10th anniversary celebration of this thread was cancelled because of the lockdown and because some of you didn’t wear masks while posting

The price of solar-grade polysilicon jumped 13% to $32.62 a kilogram on Wednesday, the highest since 2011. The material is up more than 400% since the start of June 2020 as soaring solar demand pushed processing plants to capacity.

Supply and demand. The market will work it out.

No when the demand side is subsidized by government initiatives.
