Well bruce -- yesterday's piece in The Australian by climate-alarmist-in-chief James Hansen must have helped withe the balance. And nico -- Monday night's Science Show was wholely devoted to interviewing alarmists not a skeptic was interviewed so you must have been happy with that 'balance' (scare quotes intended.
This has got to be one of the worse pieces of modelling ever seen - just look at the curve - a pretty little parabola has been fit but a hyperbolic rise would fit the data as well and a linear fit from 1950 would fit even better, if you want a parabola then a whole lot would fit as well with peaks at 2100, 2200 etc. The data suggests endless rising output not a peak - sure a peak will happen but we don't have the data to say when - no scare needed.
Mangiri, don't organisims (humans included) also develop resistance to particular disease causing organisms like the flu or E.coli?
So resistance to probitoics will develop just like antibiotics. And remeber antibiotics are just copies (not always exact but always close) of natural chemicals found in living creatures (ie penicillin is found in a mould) so they are as natural as probiotics. In fact, antibiotics are the chemicals used by probiotics to attack other microbes.
