This link has satellite photos from Japan's Ibuki satellite showing most CO2 is released in sparsely populated or unpopulated third world regions, northern Africa oil-producing regions, and the ocean, not developed, industrialized nations.

Excellent cutting and pasting, Tabatha, but it’s also important to understand content. You did a great job (April 2, 6:34 p.m.) of showing that CO2 didn’t cause the temperature change during the 20th century, since there’s not even a correlation between CO2 and temperature, a factor that’s essential to proving causation.The CO2 level will always increase when temperature increases because there's lots of it on land and in the ocean. It will decrease when temperature decreases, as the link in your 9:27 comment shows.There's a graph of T v CO2 1880-2010 at these links:http://www.plantsneedco2.org/default....http://occupywallst.org/forum/for-tho...

This is a political correctness issue, not a free speech issue. How would this have played out if a male chauvinist "good-old boy" who felt threatened and repulsed by a feminist professor grabbed a sign held by one?
The Indy fully supports one-sided politically correct AGW Lysenkoism, supported by a small minority of scientists.
The 35% of Santa Barbara's population (too low- I've looked at census maps and people I know who have physical disabilities aren't on them) who may need assistance to live outside of an institution not only had their entire budget cut by Schneider recently, who referred to this segment of the population as developmentally disabled, but have been denied the freedom of speech to respond to this by the Indy.
Replace the 35% disabled by the 19% or so politically correct non-heterosexual SB residents and write a scenario.

We need to protect the environment and minimize man's impact on it using rational means and our best science and technology, and we need a critical change from the current ethics of AGW alarmism to do that. Reducing our use of fossil fuels and developing renewable energy sources are more intelligent goals than destroying our economy and social structure to prevent a fabricated AGW crisis.
CO2 has never been shown to cause global warming; There's a correlation between CO2 levels and warming, but causation has never been demonstrated. Nearly all natural systems have negative feedback mechanisms that maintain stability, including the earth's atmosphere, rather than the positive feedback claimed in IPCC reports with no support from experimental data.
Solar cycles are a much better fit for explaining earth's climate than atmospheric CO2 level.
We're reading only disinformation in the mainline media. Many of the most respected climate scientists who disagree with AGW alarmists have resigned from the IPCC. Reviews of IPCC reports by them have been rejected, invalidating the principle of scientific review. Their research publications are being rejected by journals, and they're not getting research grants. UK Met Climate Resarch Unit, supposely independent receives funding from the UN, BP, Shell, the Sultan of Oman, and many environmental organizations. Environmental activists are greatly over-represented among IPCC scientists, and many openly supported AGW theory prior to their involvement with IPCC; it's not an unbiased group of researchers by design.
Skepticalscience cartoonist John Cook read 12,000 abstracts of climate research publications, threw out 11,933 that didn't support AGW, and called the 65/67 remaining a 97% consensus. The names of the > 31,000 physical scientists, 9,000 PhD's, who signed the Oregon Petition are scrolling on the website, and be confirmed.John Hansen pulls climate facts out of thin air like Al Gore His supervisor has called him an embarrassment to NASA. 49 NASA scientists have posted letters disputing AGW. NASA, NOAA and GISS are altering past climate data.Michael Manning's hockeystick graph was constructed by ignoring the majority of data - Google "The Yamal Deception".AGW is apolitical/economic/corporate scam that benefits the 0.1 % at the expense of the poor and third world countries. There are many websites describing the destruction of their local environments, rural areas where indigenous people have lived in harmony with the earth for centuries. Corporations can often minimize expenses by purchasing carbon credits rather than using technology that reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
Monsanto RU-Resistant corn is the only legal strain in the EU now. It has lower drought resistance than natural strains, requires more pesticides (made by Monsanto et al), has lower nutritional value, and it's illegal to plant its seeds; farmers are required to buy seeds from Monsanto every season. Monsanto has collected $850 million in litigation against farmers for patent infringement, including 700 lawsuits against 3rd world subsistence farmers. Family farms are unsustainable according to UN Agenda 21.

It's a total scam that's destroying science for political and economic goals. this is an excerpt from the 1991 Club of Rome Report "The First Global Revolution": http://books.google.com/books?id=8RNK...
“This is the way we are setting the scene for mankind’s encounter with the planet. The opposition between the two ideologies that have dominated the 20th century has collapsed, forming their own vacuum and leaving nothing but crass materialism.
It would seem that humans need a common motivation, namely a common adversary, to organize and act together in the vacuum; such a motivation must be found to bring the divided nations together to face an outside enemy,
EITHER A REAL ONE OR ONE INVENTED FOR THE PURPOSE.
New enemies therefore have to be identified.New strategies imagined, new weapons devised.
The common enemy of humanity is man.
In searching for a new enemy to unite us,
WE CAME UP WITH THE IDEA THAT POLLUTION, THE THREAT OF GLOBAL WARMING,WATER SHORTAGES, FAMINE AND THE LIKE WOULD FIT THE BILL.
All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.
Sacrilegious though this may sound, democracy is no longer well suited for the tasks ahead.”
As Al Gore said in the closing sentence of his statement after he won the Nobel Peace Prize ... "This is just the beginning."
Al Gore and Obama were founders of the Chicago Carbon Exchange, CCX. Gore founded Carbon Investment Management LLD. John Ivor, Indy article "God Goes Green" is general manager of LRQA Americas Sustainability and Chair of the ANSI Greenhouse Gas Verification Accreditation Committee, and has been employed by LRQA for 12 years.
Club of Rome certainly isn't uniquely responsible for AGW alarmism, but the text in its 1991 report provides part of the context of the AGW alarmist phenomena. Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, Henry Kissinger and Ted Turner are a few CoR members.

rukidding: If you get all your news from the Indy, Noozhawk and Edhat, you're another dumbed-down US citizen who's a hazard to the many here who acknowledge that we don't have local news in SB, we have local editorials, and we don't really have US or world news at all.

"Large amounts of fallout disseminated worldwide from the meltdowns in four reactors at the Fukushima-Dai-ichi plant in Japan beginning March 11, 2011 included radioiodine isotopes. Just days after the meltdowns, I-131 concentrations in US precipitation was measured up to 211 times above normal. Highest levels of I-131 and airborne gross beta were documented in the five US States on the Pacific Ocean. The number of congenital hypothyroid cases in these five states from March 17-December 31, 2011 was 16% greater than for the same period in 2010, compared to a 3% decline in 36 other US States (p < 0.03)..."

Sam_Tababa - It's interesting that you refer to representatives of an anti-abortion group involved in an altercation with a feminist professor as "girls". I assume you'd refer to an 18 year-old uniformed MP armed with an AK-47 as a boy. billclausen - "using graphic images to "raise awareness" is not only unneccesary, but disturbing". It sounds like you got the point; the same point conveyed by marine conservation groups who display photos of dead animals tangled in plastic bags or strangled by six-pack packaging. I don't recall a lot of tolerance among anti-war protesters back in the day.
I'm a little surprised that no one has noticed or mentioned the parallel between this incident and the recent Santa Barbara controversy involving Truett Cathy, Chick Fil-A CEO, Mayor Schneider and cc member Kathy Murillo. Opinion on LGBT issues probably parallels opinion on abortion, and is highly correlated with religious beliefs. This incident and the Chick Fil-A media frenzy involved liberals who considered themselves justified in protesting against the freedom of speech (or advocacy) of others who would probably be considered more conservative or right-wing. Left and right and liberal and conservative have been used interchangeably by some commenters here, and I don't think left=liberal and right =conservative are accurate statements, but that's another topic.The ACLU has represented the KKK in the past; not because of common ideology, but because freedom of speech only exists if it applies to everyone.
