Tended Greenhouse
White House - most everyone knows what it is.
Green House or greenhouse - a house painted green? NO! It is a space enclosed in glass or plastic where plants (vegetables or flowers) are grown.
In its simplest form, without ventilation or air conditioning, gases, essentially carbon dioxide, water vapor and air (oxygen, nitrogen and inert constituents) produced within increase in concentration and are trapped in the greenhouse. Heat generated within and heat from the outside are also trapped.
A group of minds, now popular as GLOBAL WARMING ADVOCATES or CLIMATE CHANGE PROPONENTS, have capitalized on the theory that the earth's atmosphere is a greenhouse, that endangers life and welfare. They claim and support this theory with their works: largely travels, hundreds of photographs, may be a few scientific data. Then they announced these claims and supports with volumes of publications. Then they came to court Congress for legislation(s). They have tried but failed to persuade Congress to enact climate change legislation.
Congress is far knowledgeable and intelligent, thank God Almighty.
No amount of data and publications have exhaustive proof the earth is a greenhouse tomb.
Take a little greenhouse. Engineer and install a gas disposal system composed of: (1) Duct with vacuum (exhaust) system on the roof. (2) Blower system fed with filtered, cleaned outside air. Air condition the space if possible.
Now, given the capacity of the disposal system, put anything that will produce gas of any kind, including flatulence, in the greenhouse.
Now turn on the gas disposal system.
Neglect heat generation and transfer in this concise writing.
Now verify the existence of any gas in this greenhouse which the GLOBAL WARMING ADVOCATES claim "will endanger health and welfare". 
There is no room for tendentious claims in this little greenhouse. 
CO2, the gas species blamed by GLOBAL WARMING ADVOCATES to be responsible for blanketing heat on earth and will eventually suffocate the earth's inhabitants, is a very volatile organic compound. Its boiling point is -56.6°C and sublimes at -78.5 °C, therefore it cannot be anything but gas at ordinary temperatures. Its kinetic energy increases directly with temperature. Although heavier than air, its diffusivity in air is one of the highest among the gaseous elements and compounds, meaning, once produced in the atmosphere, it disappears in the air, reaching inconceivable distances away (preferable to saying it is airborne). Also, 179.6 cc of CO2 dissolves in 100 parts of water at 0°C and 90 cc in 100 parts at 20°C, so it is very soluble in cold water.
The earth is a mysterious, overwhelmingly huge greenhouse of the kind just described. Its vacuum system is the vast outer space. Its blower system is the restless winds. It is absurd to calculate the capacity of the earth's "gas disposal system" and compare it with the capacity of its inhabitants to emit gases. The earth is definitely not a greenhouse tomb
Even if massive quantity of CO2 is produced in the atmosphere its concentration cannot be localized. It will quickly diffuse into the air, as it were stolen by a thief, even unto the fringes of the atmosphere; even more so when hot. It will be swept by the winds to incalculable heights and distances. Its chaotic path ends at the fringes of the earth's atmosphere. From there the extremely fast, elusive CO2 will wildly disperse into the infinite vastness of outer space.  (I doubt if anybody is certain it is still CO2 at this stage). The mass of CO2 settling by gravity on the bodies of water on earth will be absorbed by the water whereby it will be consumed and/or converted by certain biological or chemical processes (Marine biologists have purported CO2 is processed in coral formation. It is no surprise because coral is essentially carbonaceous, the basic component of which is CO2). The vegetable kingdom has been long known to consume large quantities of CO2.
Barring unscrupulous, corrupt motivations, it is not doing justice to accuse COof any wrong doing in the earth's atmosphere. 
If the earth were a greenhouse tomb, we would not be here today doing more harm to fellowmen than the harm they claim the slandered CO and associates are doing.
And, should all the earth's systems fail, there is an Almighty God, Creator of the earth, who knows best to abate and fix the failure.  We can only hope it will not be at the all-consuming expense of the earth's living inhabitants.
Microsoft's Spring Updates & Product Changes
A certain technology writer has reported Microsoft's plans for updates and changes on certain products this spring.
The updates will address issues about Windows 8.0 and 8.1, among which is about touch commands (designed for touch-screen applications) that do not translate perfectly on traditional mouse, keyboard or touchpad PC's and tablets. Another update, already in the market, allows 2 or more application programs side by side, meaning for example, the user can store 2 or more browsers and switch from one browser to another, which was not possible before. Updates are free to download for users and nocturnal automated PCs.
Some of the planned changes will, on the one hand,  minimize hardware requirements for functions performable through software in forthcoming products, particularly Windows Phone; e.g., at least 4 buttons will be eliminated. On the other hand, hardware such as power and setting buttons will replace the less accessible touch commands. Also, PC's and tablets will require less storage and memory space than before. Most of the planned changes are geared towards reducing manufacturing costs.
All these changes evolve from Microsoft's seemingly endless research and development in keeping with its goal to produce pioneering and innovative Microsoft products. Competitions unequivocally are doing the same, and so Microsoft's goal ends in succession of goals!
