Quoted from CICERO
Who collected the temperatures in America during the War between the States? Who collected the temps in Europe, Asia and Africa during WWII?  

The instrumental temperature record shows fluctuations of the temperature
of Earth's climate system from the historical network of in situ measurements
of surface air temperatures and ocean surface temperatures.
Data are collected at thousands of meteorological stations, buoys and ships
around the globe. The longest-running temperature record is the Central
England temperature data series, that starts in 1659. The longest-running
quasi-global record starts in 1850

philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

The year 2012 was the ninth warmest in a NASA analysis of global temperatures that stretches
back to 1880. In itself, that sounds fairly unremarkable. But, as climate scientists note,
what’s important is the long-term trend.
The 10 hottest years in the 132-year record have all occurred since 1998, and nine of the
10 have occurred since 2002.


"What matters is, this decade is warmer than the last decade, and that decade was warmer
than the decade before," said Gavin Schmidt, a climatologist at NASA’s Goddard Institute for
Space Studies. “The planet is warming."

My score is 19....next?

My biggest problem with you is your hypocrisy. The people that waste energy usually don't know better or actually even care about it... call it ignorance or whatever you want...but they also don't rail against big oil for the climate change problem, which is consistent with their beliefs and behavior.

It's people like you that blame everyone and everything for climate change, and then proceed to live life as they see fit, whether its planet friendly or not. "Do as I say, not as I do" is probably the first page in the liberals handbook.

Today I spent the afternoon harvesting last year's compost.  What used to be kitchen and lawn scraps is now rich compost.
As much as T-Tird rails about his environmental concerns... I wonder if he just throws his waste in the garbage, then pays to
have that waste disposed of in a landfill.

WOW!  19!!!
Interesting!

I ran the test with a single family home with one person and one bedroom...
and answered all questions with the most environmentally friendly answer...
I didn't drive or fly...
I entered that I was an organic vegetarian...
I entered that I recycle and compost...
AND YET I GOT A SCORE OF 16!

You must live a spartan life!

Nope....not really...I have a household of two and I did the just me calculation....My son works, but doesn't have a car, so it doesn't count against the overall mileage. I live close to where I work, so I put less than 10000 miles on a year and haven't taken a flight in 3 years.
This test is not very accurate anyway. I get no credit for my solar panels and it fails to take in consideration anything other than a car for fossil fuel use.
If you consider sailing, hiking, and cross country skiing spartan, I guess u are right.

So, Box of sh!t now has a few extra bags of sh!t ....great!!
As long as the waste is biodegradable, there is nothing wrong about disposing it in a landfill.

I don't rail about environmental  concerns in everyday conversation, I do my part and let other people do what they want.
What I do rail about is environmental hypocrites like yourself, who blame everyone and everything else and go ahead and live as they want, regardless of the environmental impact.

Oh... So you  sail... do you drag the boat to the boat launch?
Do you ski from your home?
Do you go hiking from your back yard? Or do you drive there?
A motor on your sailboat?

We have a launch at our familys camp, boat never leaves the property
Do you ski from your home?
No, mostly from my brothers place, about 10 miles away
Do you go hiking from your back yard? Or do you drive there?
I hike around the camp
A motor on your sailboat?
A gas one? no... An electric one for getting to shore if there is dead calm, yes.



I answered your questions above....but the difference is I don't rail against perceived perpetrators of climate change, just hypocrites, like you..

So Ttird... are you among the "Climate Change Deniers"?
Do you believe the Power Lobby anti science meme?

That's what happens when you don't allow any controlled burning to clear out dense underbrush.
