Warmal Colding Update: C02 is RIGHT OUT! Soot and Ozone are BACK!

Global warming rate could be halved by controlling 2 pollutants, U.N. study says
The projected rise in global temperatures could be cut in half in coming years if world governments focused on reducing emissions of two harmful pollutants - black carbon and ground-level ozone, including methane - rather than carbon dioxide alone, according to a U.N. study released Wednesday.
I'm so pleased that ozone is back. Hit it, Commander!

Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen was active from 1967 to 1976. Core members included founder George Frayne, John Tichy, who recruited Frayne pre-Cody, Billy C. Farlow, Bill Kirchen, Andy Stein, Paul "Buffalo" Bruce Barlow, Lance Dickerson, and Bobby Black.

The band’s style mixed country music, rockabilly, and blues, on a foundation of boogie-woogie piano.

After playing for several years in Ann Arbor bars, the core members migrated to San Francisco and soon got a recording contract with Paramount Records. The group released their first album in late 1971, Lost in the Ozone, which yielded its best-known hit, a version of the Rockabilly Hot Rod Lincoln, which reached the top ten in early 1972. Frayne disbanded the group in 1976.

Retaining his stage name of Commander Cody, Frayne had a subsequent solo career, touring and releasing albums from 1977 on.

Frayne is also an artist. He received a bachelor's in design from the U of M in 1966 and a master's in Sculpture and Painting from the U of M in 1968. He taught at University of Michigan and Wisconsin State University at Oshkosh, and has had his art exhibited at numerous shows.

John Tichy subsequently earned a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan and became head of the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.


That kind of puts Tichy ahead of Brian May.

Methane? Black carbon? That means they're coming for our red meat and the charcoal upon which we grill it. How about eliminating liberals? and the public union protestors? There is a TON of methane we could do without right off the bat. When liberals begin sacrificing their very lives to eliminate their own noxious gas emissions for the sake of the environment, then I'll believe they are sincere. In the meantime, I'm bitterly clinging to my read meat, among other things.
