    Laptop undervolting and overclocking results... i7-10750H RTX 2060... MSI Raider GE75

    True. The 62W @4.3GHz is the unusual part, and the paste won't help with that... but as uncleweb has stated the self reported power isn't reliable. Did you run benchmarks before/after to compare thermal performance?

    "The Carrington event was first estimated to have a Dst of about −1760 nT41. If we assume this threshold, the corresponding Weibull distribution would have shape and scale parameters 0.68 and 3.18 × 1010 days (8.7 × 107 years) respectively, so the probability of having such an event within the...

    We'll get an increase in usable land (unfrozen), not a reduction. Nothing is certain, but a warmer earth will very likely be better for growing food as well due to longer growing seasons and higher rainfall. Issues will be local, not global.

    They are solutions to the "people will bake and die" narrative. The issue with rising seas isn't loss of land, but rather the fact that low lying coastal areas are heavily developed and populated.

    Some people might be that stupid, but most have a few brain cells and prefer to live. Supposing the occurrence of lethal heat indexes during the middle of the day in summer, how do you think people will adapt? A few things that come to mind are: 1) stay in AC (or cellars if in a poor area)...

    Ice ages are status quo, starting ~3M years ago. We are now in a brief "interglacial warm period". We would expect another ice age any time now...

    Some places would be too hot to live, just like now some places are too cold to live. But no one is projecting anywhere near that big of an increase (23F hotter than now); worst case is ~7F rise by 2100 and that would only happen if carbon emissions keep rising. More likely it will be ~3F.

    Global Warming & Climate Change Discussion

    Show me where I denied the consensus view regarding climate change. Isolated disaster scenarios that do not include obvious solutions and the big picture (the effect on the planet as a whole) cannot be taken seriously. Just as a small example, the earlier article posted about lack of water in...

    Global Warming & Climate Change Discussion

    Why would global warming reduce the number of people who can live on the earth, and what is this "science" you speak of? The water supply will be less consistent some places and times, and more consistent in others. One reliable and common method to control water flow is to build a dam. This...

    Near extinction of humans?! Because the global temperature rises to a level that is more ideal for humans (and animals and plants)? If temperatures rise substantial amounts there will certainly be a lot of changes to deal with; primarily some displacement in coastal areas, and adjustments for...

    Why would : ... melting glaciers reduce water resources for continental areas? Seems like turning ice into water would have the opposite affect... ... arable farmland diminish? Most crops love warm wet conditions and a long growing season. And large land masses in the northern hemisphere will...

    No humans didn't exist then, but it wasn't because the climate didn't suit us. The population of mammals exploded when it was 23F warmer than now. Ideal as possible?! Earth's temperature for the last 3 million years has been far from ideal for humans. A mere 20k years ago much of the world was...

    Aren't you agreeing with my statement? "The earth has been considerably warmer than now for most of its history" The earth was slightly warmer at times >50M years ago; but only a few degrees higher than the temp 50M years ago of ~83F... ~23F hotter than now.

    If you were hoping for another ice age to happen soon, then that's probably not going to happen... ;)
