Runaway climate change Unrealistic

Runaway climate change Unrealistic, say scientists

Another disappointing feedback. The more we learn about them, the more pesky (for Warmists) these feedbacks become

A new study is set to rock the boat again by calling into question one of the more frightening global warming scenarios: "runaway climate change." Under this scenario, rising temperatures speed up processes that catastrophically increase the rate of global warming – a positive feedback loop.

What is really going on?

The pattern of climate change over the past million years likely involves complicated interactions between different parts of the climate system, as well as three different orbital systems. The first two orbital systems are the orbit's eccentricity, and tilt. The third is "precession," or a change in the orientation of the rotation axis.

But There is More...

Between 1850 and 1990 the global-mean temperature at the surface of the Earth warmed by approximately 0.5°C (about 1°F). During the same period, the amount of carbon dioxide measured in the Earth's atmosphere increased by about 25 percent, as a consequence of our ever- increasing use of fossil fuels.

Still, more factors were obviously perturbing the climate system than the lone hand of greenhouse gases. The global-mean temperature did not rise steadily: statistical analyses of the temperature record since 1850 reveal significant year-to-year and decade-to-decade variability. Moreover, what is known of the longer climatic record suggests that surface temperatures may have been systematically increasing since the late 17th century, well before the onset of the Industrial Revolution, when greenhouse gas concentrations first began their upward climb.

Well, Again; What is REALLY CAUSING EARTH CLIMATE CHANGES?

OK, fasten your seat belts. This will turn into a book later. The earth';s climate changes are the result of many different factors as noted above. However, a MAJOR cause of earth climate change is the results of physics! Physics tells us when something is compressed, it is heated. When something expands, it releases heat (cools).

Given the above dynamics, consider the earth's orbit. The orbit exposes the earth to cyclical gravitational forces from the sun, moon and planets. The position and alignment of the sun, moon, and planets affect the earth's climate.

No, this is not Astrology. this is science. We all know the moon's affect upon the earth causes the rise and fall of the ocean (tides). When the gravitational forces of the sun, moon and planets are aligned, the gravitational forces are greatest. The gravitational forces compress the earth. When the gravational forces are not as great, the earth expands.

There are empirical evidence from the oceans, ice cores, geology and more, that the earth has experienced cyclical climate changes that correlate EXACTLY to the earth's position in the solar system.

  • As a side note, the gravitational forces also affects the weather, volcanoes and earthquakes.
  • We are on the downside of a natural occurring warming trend.

Utilizing the K.I.S.S. principle (keep it simple stupid), I will stop here.

Bottom-line:

Earth's Warming and Cooling Climate Change has many factors that affect the degree of change. The biggest influence is the gravitational compression and expansion of the earth that drives the earth's climate change! When the earth experiences the greatest gravitational forces, it heats, when it is not, it expands and cools.

"Between 1850 and 1990 the global-mean temperature at the surface of the Earth warmed by approximately 0.5°C (about 1°F)."

When you say approximately, you ain't kidding!

In 1850 we did not have the technology to measure temperature to the nearest .1 degree. Water temperature was measured by putting a thermometer in a bucket and dropping the bucket in the water.

Sometimes the bucket of water was sampled from the exhaust channel of the vessel.

The depth to which the bucket was submerged was not standardized.

Thermometers were analog, not digital. No one cared to read values to the nearest 10th of a degree, nor were they able to do so.

We didn't have GPS technology in 1850. Water temperature readings were not consistently obtained from the same location, the same time of day, or with the same equipment.

Better tools, better results. Obviously Climate change is a dynamic, controversial topic. I have constructed charts of millions of years climate changes. There is a correlation of earth's orbit and climate changes... Thanks for your input!

Ah, but correlation does not imply causation, as I'm sure you agree. ;)

nicomp Of course you are correct! My book will give more "ammunition!" Would you agree when something is compressed, it heats, or when it expands, it cools?

Yes, I agree.

Theof fire coming out of the mouth of the man in the photo was quite an eye catcher. Thanks for an interesting perspecitive on global warming.

World-Traveler, Al Gore, "The man" is the "father of the Internet," the concerned citizen who steps out of his Lear Jet to tell us to drive less...

Gore, whose net worth is already estimated to be hundreds of millions of dollars, “stands to make a lot of money from his promotion of the alleged ‘global warming’ threat, which is disputed by many mainstream scientists.” The engine that drives these profits is Generation Investment Management (GIM), a company that Gore and David Blood (former CEO of Goldman Sachs Asset Management) co-founded in 2004 “to take financial advantage of new technologies and solutions related to combating global warming.” GIM deals in so-called “carbon offsets,” which operate as follows: First, a business calculates the degree to which its own atmospheric emissions of “greenhouse gases” such as carbon dioxide (created by the burning of fossil fuels) contribute to global warming. This contribution is called a "carbon footprint." Next, the business aims to minimize or even “erase” this “footprint” by buying "carbon offsets," entities whose purchase price is used, in turn, to fund projects such as the construction of wind farms or solar panels, which produce clean energy and thereby, in theory, “offset” the environmental impact of the business's activities.

In November 2009, Gore minimized the significance of the so-called "Climategate" scandal that grew out of confirmed reports that the top scientists at the Climate Research Unit (CRU) in England, possessor of the world's largest temperature-data set, had secretly and repeatedly manipulated scientific evidence in order to conceal or destroy data that contradicted their claims. When asked about the matter during a CNN interview, Gore said that opponents of the man-caused global warming hypothesis were taking the Climategate evidence “out of context” and were trying "to blow it up into something that it's really not."

I agree dallas93444, Global Warming is so mysterious to us. There are many natural causes as you have shown, but nonetheless, our affects are irrevocable and somewhat irreversible. We cannot stop the compressions and expansion of the Earth due to gravity, but wen can control our exponential factors. Our fuel needs, for our way of living is not helping the issue at ALL!

Mother earth has been there and done that many times. Our "contribution" is less than 2%... There is a "thresh-hold" whereby things happen quickly (temperature rise or fall)... unfortunately, we do not know what the "limits" are for drastic changes... There is a moon of Jupiter that has volcanoes and the heat generated is from the Strong gravitational forces of Jupiter...

MartieCoetser,

It is a dynamic topic... and cyclical in nature...
