They claim that less than 2 degrees (manipulated) over 2 centuries is alarming
OK. LESS than 2 degrees warming over the last 2 centuries.Alarmists seldom talk about real numbers.
Wouldn't you agree that co2 is insignificant compared to h2o as a greenhouse gas?
A very little amount.
Those that forget their history are condemned to repeat it.
what is the original source of that heat?
Water vapor also traps heat in, by way larger margins than CO2 does.
What does that even mean? Really? Google it.
What does that even mean?
Anyone trying to predict the future is most likely wrong.
So what?Apparently that blows up the narrative that CO2 is causing the rise in heat, right?
There's no chance that MORE water vapor comes from more irrigation, more swimming pools, more car washes, more open reservoirs
What's the surface area of all these pools across the world? How much evaporation takes place every day?
It's really very simple, follow the money, who pays these scientists and what's the party line they have to follow to keep getting their paychecks. The ole "peer review" process.
Who paid the Economists in 200 countries, almost none of whom predicted the financial crisis?
Keep dreaming. Nominal house prices rose during the high inflation of the late 70s/early 80s.
When Democrats learn to talk like that, then they'll have a chance of getting back into office.

Why can’t this continue? If the so-called bond vigilantes existed, interest rates would never have remained so low in the USA. Folks continually incorrectly apply the analogy of a business or household when talking about governement finances.
I am a little scared. Bush added 5 trillon, Obama added 10 trillion and looks like Trump will add another 10 trillion more or less?
Under what circumstances would governement debt cause a depression?
I believe globalization was inevitable, that is if you want to advocate for free and open global capitalism. That is if you want to say that what's good for us is good for the world. It was probably the biggest cause.
Sure, but what is the connection to trillion dollar government debt? As stated above, in spite of the level of US govt debt, interest rates have been at historic lows. Asset inflation has been the norm for quite a while, related to low rates. Raising taxes has not been a required action of debt issuance. Drastic spending cuts by the gov in the absence of counter-acting growth in spending by other sectors would be troubling, but nowhere in the four scenarios you offer is there any connection to growing trillion dollar debt.
You're OK with the factual detail of Obama tacking on 10 Trillion, that wasn't a problem
So when the next recession hits under Trump (which it probably will, since we're due), you'll be OK with him printing Trillions to fight it too?
