    But supernatural explanations are even more improbable, so we are left with no explanations at all.

    "... especially if ..."?

    It's not remotely true if you don't exclude the Apocrypha, since even taking the most extreme dates possible places Sirach as being written 340 years after Malachi.

    The conclusion is based on the math. That doesn't make sense. The measurement is scientific. The divvying up is political. I wasn't sure whether this was true - so I checked. I determined that there...

    Maybe I worded it poorly. I mean that Germany as a whole was producing mire than East Germany or West Germany individually. No change in pollution.

    And now I lose you. Granted, higher pop with all else equal would have that result - but the atmosphere won't care. The overall volume of CO2 is the problem as I understand it.

    Not always - when it comes to Trump's possible malfeasances, he immediately switches to no knowledge being possible. It's a wonder he doesn't get whiplash.
