Obama: Temperatures Rising Faster Than Predicted

    Can't. Stop. Laughing.

    Can't. Stop. Crying.

    This is the man leading our country, and he has no idea what he's talking about:

    “We also know that the climate is warming faster than anybody anticipated five or 10 years ago.”

    Unfortunately for our dear leader, the IPCC has been lowering their predictions every report, and the global temperature has been going down for the last 13 years... but don't let facts stand in your way...

        You know what the funny part is? Even if global warming were really happening, and even if we were approaching dangerous levels... we could easily fix it... it's the simplest thing in the world, just dump a bunch of metal in the ocean... problem solved.

        But, if we started messing around like that, we'd be more likely to send ourselves into an ice age, because it's much easier to cool the planet intentionally than to warm it.

          Ah my you are usually so much more informed. The very creator of that theoretical solution has said it should never be used except in the instance of near absolute crisis, not because it might cause an ice age but because it would cause mass extinctions and reflectional radiation.

          As for your first comment it actually depends whose estimates you are using, by the conservative (in the scientific not political sense) estimates the earth is "heating" much faster than expected since the expectation was actually a period of cooling given the use of aerosols and orbital forcing that many believed would temporarily overcome the CO2 warming and reduce the temperature, instead it has risen and stayed the same which is pretty alarming given the circumstances.

          Seriously just take the information of experts (99%+ of which believe that global warming is a serious issue) rather than attempting to interpret data as an amateur with no knowledge of the topic or understanding of the many factors at play.

            You do know they've used it, right? But I would be happy to look at a source for that claim... reflectional radiation?

            No, the heating isn't faster, because we are COOLING without having enacted all of the assumptions in the LOWEST estimates. None of the estimates projected a cooling period, just look at the chart.

            You're also wrong about the percentage of experts who agree, but that doesn't matter, that chart is the data those 'experts' gave us. Obama was wrong, but you couldn't possibly admit that, could you?

      I suppose it is better than bombing an aspirin factory. 

      Reporters: "Mr. President, can we talk to you about the many scandals brewing?"

      President: "Quick! Look! A squirrel!"

    Here is a handy little chart to show how wrong the models that these climate-change scientists are using are. We are below every prediction, and the lowest of those predictions were assuming the we completely stopped all our CO2 and other chemical pollution.
