Your knowledge of CO2 is commendable, would you please contact out President and inform him? It won't register, but it's worth a try.

what if the fireplace is electric though or gas????? Just a thought.

Your electric fireplace uses electricity which is made by your electric company using 63% fossil fuels contributing to CO2 emissions.  Gas fireplaces when burned contribute directly to CO2 production.  All contribute CO2 and global warming.  Just keep warm, don't worry, and Happy Thanksgiving!

GOPerLords have lined their pockets with the profits earned by workers for the last 30 years. Those Reagan Taxscams redistributed $1.4 TRILLION from We the People to a couple hundred families.

 

The two worthless wars jrbush and the GOP lied us into already cost us $5 TRILLION that was redistributed from We the People to the Death Merchants running our Military Industrial Complex.

 

We now have 99 Nuclear Reactors producing 19% of our total electric power. With the money we gave the Uberrich in the Reaganscam, we COULD have built another 350 fail-safe reactors, put solar panels on the roofs of all our schools and Government buildings and totally eliminated the largest share of green house gases.

 

Instead we got this: NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) tracks U.S. weather and climate events that have great economic and societal impacts (www.ncdc.noaa.gov/billions). Since 1980, the U.S. has sustained 219 weather and climate disasters where the overall damage costs reached or exceeded $1 billion (including adjustments based on the Consumer Price Index, as of December 2017).

 

The cumulative costs for these 219 events exceed $1.5 trillion.

 

And, thanks entirely to the GOP, that figure is going to increase exponentially in the next decade.

Trump The Weatherman Frigid What About Global Warming

Weather - the state of the atmosphere at a place and time as regards heat, dryness, sunshine, wind, rain, etc.

 

Climate - the weather conditions prevailing in an area in general or over a long period.

 

 

Global Warming

 

Over the past 50 years, the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history. And experts see the trend is accelerating: All but one of the 16 hottest years in NASA’s 134-year record have occurred since 2000.

 

Global warming occurs when carbon dioxide (CO2) and other air pollutants and greenhouse gases collect in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation that have bounced off the earth’s surface. Normally, this radiation would escape into space—but these pollutants, which can last for years to centuries in the atmosphere, trap the heat and cause the planet to get hotter. That's what's known as the greenhouse effect.

 

In the United States, the burning of fossil fuels to make electricity is the largest source of heat-trapping pollution, producing about two billion tons of CO2 every year. Coal-burning power plants are by far the biggest polluters. The country’s second-largest source of carbon pollution is the transportation sector, which generates about 1.7 billion tons of CO2 emissions a year.

 

How is global warming linked to extreme weather?

 

A: Scientists agree that the earth’s rising temperatures are fueling longer and hotter heat waves, more frequent droughts, heavier rainfall, and more powerful hurricanes. In 2015, for example, scientists said that an ongoing drought in California—the state’s worst water shortage in 1,200 years—had been intensified by 15 percent to 20 percent by global warming. They also said the odds of similar droughts happening in the future had roughly doubled over the past century. And in 2016, the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine announced that it’s now possible to confidently attribute certain weather events, like some heat waves, directly to climate change.

 

The earth’s ocean temperatures are getting warmer, too—which means that tropical storms can pick up more energy. So global warming could turn, say, a category 3 storm into a more dangerous category 4 storm. In fact, scientists have found that the frequency of North Atlantic hurricanes has increased since the early 1980s, as well as the number of storms that reach categories 4 and 5.

 

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina—the costliest hurricane in U.S. history—struck New Orleans; the second-costliest, Hurricane Sandy, hit the East Coast in 2012.

 

The impacts of global warming are being felt across the globe. Extreme heat waves have caused tens of thousands of deaths around the world in recent years. And in an alarming sign of events to come, Antarctica has been losing about 134 billion metric tons of ice per year since 2002. This rate could speed up if we keep burning fossil fuels at our current pace, some experts say, causing sea levels to rise several meters over the next 50 to 150 years.
