Environmental Chemistry 101

Every Friday the BBC puts out their Weekly world news quiz which asks questions about the news from the week.

In their quiz today they perpetrate an ongoing lie that irks me to no end:

Question 5:
Honda has started commercial production of an unusual new car. What is special about it?

A: The body is made entirely of plastic, and is much lighter than conventional cars

B: It runs on hydrogen and emits water vapour instead of greenhouse gases

C: It has fin-like wings, which make it super-efficient at high speeds

Now if you saw my post from a few days ago I posted an image of this car…the answer is B but there is a blatant flaw in the answer… “instead of greenhouse gases”…Really!!??!!

Definition of Greenhouse Gas: Gases that are in the atmosphere which prohibit the loss of heat from the planet into space.

From Wikipedia:

The most important greenhouse gases are:
water vapor, which causes about 36–70% of the greenhouse effect on Earth. (Note clouds typically affect climate differently from other forms of atmospheric water.)
carbon dioxide, which causes 9–26%
methane, which causes 4–9%
ozone, which causes 3–7%

Water Vapor is the number one greenhouse gas – why does the media and “global warming” nuts wish to ignore this large force?

    They’ll ignore it…until it actually begins to replace the internal combustion engine for mobility.

    Isn’t it convenient that the two products of complete combustion of hydrocarbons are water and carbon dioxide, and that their “role” in Gorebal “Warming” was “discovered” (created actually) only after the products of incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons were essentially demonized out of existence?

    What??? You mean they are LYING to us??? Who’da thunk it!

    Pfft! Weasels. You know of course we are all morons, and they know best, right?
