I New it ! The era of "political correctness" may finally be maturing into something slightly better ? NOAA having been instrumental in promoting the whole recent Global Warming alarmism may be returning to it's actual day job
of predicting the weather?
Can they stop the Arctic ice from melting by 1% a year?
meanwhile other parts of the globe, ice is increasing...global cooling coming due to weak solar sunspot cycle...
Just read that federal U.S. "environmentally laundered " green subsidization policies has allowed for the deforestation here in the east and northeast regions for wood pellet produced electrical powering UK. power stations , SO THAT THEY can claim environment progress in production grids of electricity .Environmental progress = U.S. Trees --to wood pellets-- to the UK ?
One more national exploitation for environmental P.C. cause?
This kind of thinking is horrible.
Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree*: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities. In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position.
Over 200 countries sign the Paris Accord leaving out the US. There is no other issues you get countries to agree, upon unanimously. Then the greatest thread to earth. You wonder why Trump is the most disliked person on earth.
I have the world largest snow sculptors business, set 15 world record for snow playgrounds and snowman's and had to quit. Why? Global warning.
The Big Thaw
As the climate warms, how much, and how quickly, will Earth's glaciers melt? Picture of an ice cap melting in Norway, ice cap on the island of Nordaustlandet. Sperry Glacier in Glacier National Park, Montana.National Park in 1910, it was home to an estimated 150 glaciers. Since then the number has decreased to fewer than 30, and most of those remaining have shrunk in area by two-thirds.
The first ship came the North West passage in 1984. Now regular tourist ship vist.
We are loosing badly to the greatest threat on earth.
You've got to stop with the Mad Magazine facts , statistics and figures Jake!
You're way off base on those numbers .
I studied in Finland Norway and Sweden about igloos and Ice hotels. From being in the Arctic and my peers agree. Man made most of this greatest threat.
You don't know First hand like we do. We lost a lot money in the snow business.
When REAL scientists start congealing with a proven message about the "Global Warming " issue and independent studies based upon traditionally disproving of all science , AND not "proving that warming exists "? Then I'll listen .
We cannot have a very recent and LIBERALLY biased and politically motivated form of science trying to "prove it's way into global warming". Go back and study this issue from the seventies , you see why people do not believe .
In Vancouver the have succulent plants growings everywhere. Palm tree grow along the beaches. Know a few who have banana tree outside.
Prairie farming tell their growing seasons have extended for A month and half longer. I have stayed if so many huge Corperationism said it illegal to live self substainable green. Their oil fracking pollutes more than all the cars in canada.
People in the north live really short lives
A Forty year proof of global warming by liberal influxes in research science is not science , It's liberal politics-- polluting science , Science can't even tell us any weather records over a hundred + years old . How is that a proven record of knowing anything about weather history ?
I believe in Climate Change , it's called The four seasons !
So, your telling me 97℅ of scientists are wrong. Plus all the countries in the world are wrong. Accept Trump and all his minions and salves.
They are misguided...
They have bought into the religion of climate change and AGW...theory.
It is only a theory.
Everything the scientist studied and claimed about global warming is true and it still can be attributed to normal natural causes. The difference is they claim the cause is human activity.
I hope you see the problem.
Not when I have shut out of natural environment business. Plus sand and snow sculptures and self substainable eco villages by dirty polluted Corperationism. It's why I move to clean south America. Now I have watch the rest of my family die of food weapons, and pollution, so they can depopulate the earth with your support.
Or when lopsided 97 percent active publishing climate scientists agree and all the countries agree, except US. That Climate-warming trends are extremely likely due to human activities. In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this positioned.
IF , as a scientist , you pick and choose your beliefs and then go about proving them , as has happened since about 1975 , then YES , I'm saying your 97 % of scientists are wrong . As all real scientists say . Science USED to not get behind a project politically . Scientists , real ones , prove out a cause by a constancy of "disproving "research rather than selecting from a choice of answers that agree with their liking .
Science is changing since the 70's ---and not the world we live in .
So yes ! Your 97% number is a fallacy.
97% of scientist can agree the earth is warming. I agree the earth is warming. What is in debate is what is the main cause of the warming?
There are several possibilities...
1. It is a natural cycle. The earth goes through a periodic cycle of 100,000 years between ice ages.
2. If is man-made due to our recent excessive use of fossil fuel and the increased CO2 causing a greenhouse effect. This is the AGW theory.
3. A combination of the above two causes.
Which of the three theory do you believe?
I am a skeptic of the second - the AGW theory. There is not enough evidence that human activities is mostly responsible for the recent global warming.
In fact, there is strong evidence that sun spot cycles are responsible for some recent cooling - off-setting some of the greenhouse effect.
According to real science, number one  , Don't know who said it but a couple of years ago I listened to a talk show on NPR where a climate scientist said and I quote " ...........Mankind has an incredible ego to think that we are even minutely responsible for affecting weather and global warming .........." . He went on to say the sun , the earth's weather , ocean currents and climate cycles are to powerful in themselves to be affected my mankind . I wish now I had noted who it was . I was surprised .
THey also discussed the changing process' of scientific study of the environment from the 1970's on , young , new , agenda-ed researchers are taking over science , weather research , science reporting , and political science.
The American Religious right are about the worst natural environmentsist I know. Maybe bout 5-10℅ in the world believe in Creatiism. I know Most Christians don't believe in Creatiism, yet (Mike), Trumps right hand man, wants to teach it in every school in the US.
Now Maybe 3 to 5℅ of the world is for fossil fuel and anti Global warming. By international law, human and environmental rights. These people, like Trump, should be lock up for brain washing, programing harm and murdering the earth.
Do you know why our nation is a Republic and not a majority rule democracy?
Because the majority of the public rule by emotions. It is why in the old west, there were hangings and mob rule...
Just because 90% of the world believe in AGW climate change does not mean they are correct. Don't forget, 90% of the World population live below the poverty level of the US.
I believe people should use common sense dealing with climate change issues. This is a long term issue, meaning 30-100 years. It is not going to happen quickly. The earth is huge and any changes will have great momentum. If you remember your high school physics, momentum is based on Mass, and the greater the mass, the greater the momentum...
People general are more intelligent than ever before. There is less wars, less killing , longer life span, more travel, more mixing races and cultures than ever before.
The true leaders in the history of mankind have Always been the people. Not a Religion, not a country and not even empires. Although British and American empires have come the closest to owning everything.
When abuse comes down from their heirachary king or leaders, it is the people who change it, not the leaders. People are basically good. When the consciousness of the people hits 80 ℅ they make the positive change.
Right now 193 countries to - one want fossil energy and Global warning to stop. Since US is 4℅ of the world population, it's 96℅ to 4 who want change on Global warming. If America had a true democracy, most Americans do not want toxic and highly unhealthy energy also.
Trump and his Alt right have already lost. In order for all of us to have a positive change. The majority already are aware of the Alt right, they are too great in ethics to be fooled.
The American people are smarter than you think. That is why after 8 years of progressive policies, they wanted a change and voted for an outsider like Trump...
Now we see the changes in DC are possible, Supreme court rulings in our favor, and unions losing their grip on political elites... America defending our borders, and 300 billion coming home and helping our domestic economy...good news abound...
We are winning...
Majority of Americans don't want what Trump and his gang want. They are dictated and delusion to think so.
Wish the two party system was abolished. Oligopoly in politics is, sadly, the norm. To explain it, I'll use... statistics!
Other sadness is majority think they only have control when they vote.A 20 year low in voting was this 2016 election.
A little more than half of voting-age Americans took part in the general election; when you break down all the nomination, only 9℅ actually voted for Trump. Today he is lowest in the American Presidents popular poll's in history.
I give you alot of numbers because they don't lie. When US is near the bottom ranking at 35th nation in math of the industrial nations. I wonder, ...they are not superior .they are adverage.
The majority of Americans are smarter than what you think. They don't want toxic, snytheic energy.
Main reason I want Trump out.
Unfortunately, you have no vote on Trump. It will be up to American citizens.
Trump has delivered on his promise so far. You might not like it but too bad. American are liking the results of more jobs, better jobs, better economic prospects, and bringing factories back to homeland...
Economy is a huge part but no the only one. For a long time, the government has grown too large and spent too much... Americans want a limited government as envisioned by our founders. We want a secured border and we want the rule of law be followed...
Your side is loosing big and will continue to lose if you don’t embrace the program.
If president Obama had delivered on his promise, your side would be winning and cheering.
At the end of the day, real solutions matter. Talk is cheap. Trump delivered.
Did Harley Davidson workers and shareholders tell you they were happy with Trump's tariffs, Jack?
No but that is a business decision. There is no 100% satisfaction in everything. The trade imbalance was a real problem for us. If we have to take a hit in the short run...so be it.
I am not one for trade wars but there need to be a level playing field.
Wish to abolish federal Government. l only don't like it for my family living in the US. I love my lifestyle, don't need a unbalance programs or leading destroyer to ruin it.
Trump is like 10℅ on complete on his promises and any President is lucky it they hit 25℅. The world market controls itself, not the President. He can't switch jobs to America because he can't compete with foreign cheap labour. The wealthy will go for the better deal, they don't care about Americans, they only care about highest profits.
My road record Alway shows I walk my talk. lucky and happy for it. Whats more BS talking than a politician, maybe a clergyman. You must love BS fairytales.
What evidence do you have that these are not “real” scientists? Are you at all familiar with the scientific method? You have to create a hypothesis to test. Science is not and has never been about randomly trying to disprove things.
The fact that you’re prepared to dismiss peer-reviewed scientific research because you don’t like what it says is absolutely terrifying.
Hey, I'm fearless, and I move to south America because I know too much about the real dangers of the natural environment now and in the near future.
What does you moving to South Africa have anything to do with what we are discussing here on climate change?
I have given up from these overwhemeing Corperationism developers telling me my 3 different eco villages in North America are not legal.. Because you can't be legal without being on the Corporatecracy grid.
South America honors green healthy villages. Anything south of the equator is only 5℅ of the world's pollution and 10℅ of militarily war machine's. Colombia economy is doubling the US. Most of the third world population is growing faster than the US. Don't invest in a loosing cause.
Your math is different than my. Last time I look, the US has the largest economy by far. Only China comes close. we also have the greatest wealth among the world. Did that happen by accident?
We also have the largest number of patents? how come? we are only 6% of the world population.
We also receive the vast majority of awards and Olympic medals???
By any metrics, we are a superior nation and exceptional in human history...
Sorry not superior
Your wealthy can own the world by digital prints and toliet paper like a paper tiger.
They can't buy love or happiness.or even health care right for the vas majority.
Norway of 5.3 million people have more winter Olympics metal than US in history. Per capita for more metals. A dozen countries beat US in the summer Olympics. Look at all these over obiese people suffering from the depopulation food weapons. Canada has no permanent homeless cities like every major city in the US. Even an airline pilot needs food stamps. Prisons over full with cheap labor. US must be now one of the most unfree Countries.
You hit the nail on its head.
There is no scientific method when it come to climate change...that is the problem...
Any theory cannot be proved or disproved.
That is why their models project out to 30 years...
by then, they are retired and collecting their nice pension.
The earth is warming...
That is all they can say...
Any research that shows effects of warming on our environment can all be true...
What is not proven is that we humans are the main cause of the warming.
As you well know, the earth has a variable climate down through the ages...and experience an ice age approx. every 100,000 years cycle.
Aime , If the last part were true , One , Then why is there so much dissent in the science community ? Two , How much and how effective is real data and science that has been collected in less than one hundred years ,
global warming study less than 50 years , all compiled from the real history 4.534 BILLION years of earth's weather history ?
Spain that ?
But there really isn’t that much dissent among scientists on this topic.
Someone else gave the example of believing that vaccines cause autism and it’s really a very similar example: an overwhelming number of studies and the people who conduct them come to the same conclusion (humans have a significant impact on climate change/vaccines are not linked to autism), and then a small number of scientists aim to prove the opposite, usually unsuccessfully, but loudly enough that the people who don’t like the majority consensus feel like they can make a point of arguing about it.
"Over 200 countries sign the Paris Accord leaving out the US."
Odd - there are just 193 countries in the UN, and 2 more self-declared countries no one recognizes.
https://www.worldometers.info/geography … the-world/
Your right, the last time I fact check there wasn'ts 216 countries, these countries must bonded together to protect themselves from NWO. When they said all countries joined on, I assume, very very sorry.
Still all the countries bonded together to save our species, even North Korea, and Syria. UN wanted to ban an fossil fuel where Trump calls coal clean. Anywhere I have traveled in the world where they have coal energy. They the worst air pollution in the world.
You want fracking oil and coal energy, for sure you will chock on it and kill your water and soil.
What do I care, I am Moving to one of the most unpolluted areas in the world.
John Stossel did a great report on the hoax of the Paris accord. I suggest every one click on the link below and watch it.
That looked like two crooked lawyers cherry picking garbages. At least they admitted America produces double the greenhouse gases than India or China. I hope they got payoff well by their greedy fossil energy and fracking oil Cartels and chock on it.
If 96℅ of the world was wants to fake it til they make it, in cleaning up natural environmental. Just sanction US for destroying it, the environment is far more dangerous than North Korean nukes or nukes in general. If Trump hasn't already sanction themselves off.
About a half century 75℅ of large trees are gone, 90 of big fish... gone...most of land mammals, gone...Where is their honest politicans or lawyer, or multi media. Shame on you.
One time I thought John Stossel was ethical. There was show he made out like the Isreal Zionist/Jews were victim to the Palestinian. The Zionist took away Palestinian land and treated them worst than prisoner or American Indians. Why not? he is Jewish and a Trump warrior. Trump who is a 1000s behind Jewish/Zionist israel where power, banks Jewish taxes and dirty oil are Centro. All roads lead to the fires of greed. Not to our greatest threat to mankind, water, land, sky, sun and soil
So in your anti-semetic mind, the Jews, who are a small percent of the world population are responsible for all the ills...
You are beginning to sound like Nazi Germany in the 1930s...
what is next, UFO from outer space???
or The ugly Americans... who save the planet from Fascists...and have donated the most to help the world's poor...
Your problem is your myopic views.... your rose colored glasses...
The world would be perfect if America and Israel are wiped out of the earth...
I say control the insanity, don't be the insanity by wiping out America and Isreal.
Your leaders maybe cold blooded reptiles. The American are good people once they are deprogrammed from their powers to be.
The only evidence of creatures from outer space are Trarigrades. I refuse George Lucas Aliens sculptures because like Jesus I have no clear references to.
Anything centroize to those greedy bastards like Trump as Fascism. Who do they donate to after they destroy a country. To Walmart, McDonald and the US military bases and so on, all over their country decent soil.
The fact that relatively recent increases in climate are largely caused by human activity, is not political correctness. It's just our (the human race's) best current scientific understanding.
'".......Best current scientific understanding......." And that is very true , But
One , along what little we could possibly KNOW out of studying scientifically only fifty years in a four and a half billion- with a B --history , It is very safe to say that ,that is nowhere near enough study to even begin to get a credible scientific history. If this same time frame of applied study were to be applied to say criminal history or political science , the record keepers would be laughed out of a job .
Two , The all too recent history of computers , their evolution and consequent study patterns and accuracy cannot now possibly be used to any reliable or accurate conclusion and especially ending results to determine that Yes , there is a history of global warming .period .
Three , The study of science by man only insures that the human element of man is infused into all fact , statistic and even results so human nature plays into the picture probably more than any other element . Bottom line ; It is way too early in a beginning study history to point a finger [a human finger ] at such firm conclusions about warming , cooling or up and down trends .
Four , We also HAVE to look at the money lines of these studies , political agendas , grants , guaranteed finances of federal tax dollars right through the system down to the laboratories . Who's agenda are we studying ?
I know right! It's like how do they know the earth even existed before people, when no one was there to see it? It's crazy! We just don't know whether it did or not. People accept the words of these fancy "scientists" with their fancy "computers" going around doing fancy "science" like it's their job or something. Scientists shmientists. Unless they can produce an eye witness who saw the earth existing before humans existed, I think we need to be skeptical about that claim. Sounds like some kind of politically correct nonsense to me! Even worse, it could be somehow connected to *shudder* socialism .
Apparently some people claim a love for P.C. science and don't know much beyond it Don , But whatever you say ,because one thing that we all DO know is that some people are actually colorblind to the grey areas and merely see the extremes , the outside ends or only the black and white of an issue. So besides your wise a$$ remarks , welcome to that club!
It's clear alot of you here have sold your soul to the Greedy Bastards. As you hope some trickle down to you. These as*holes will sh*t over the earth and you will beg them for more.
Please Sir, may I have a little more trickle.
It's the National Weather Service's job to predict the weather. It is just one branch of NOAA. I have a BS in Meteorology and Climatology...but it doesn't take one to understand the difference.
Heres NOAA's mission: "NOAA's Mission: Science, Service and Stewardship
1. To understand and predict changes in climate, weather, oceans and coasts;
2. To share that knowledge and information with others; and
3. To conserve and manage coastal and marine ecosystems and resources."
That's great , Perhaps now you might enlighten us as to why the NOAA or any government funded , granted or subsidy supported scientific research entity should have been politicized to begin with ?
Have you read or heard about this politicization from the seventies ?
The scientists didn't politicize NOAA, politicians did. It's basically the difference between people who understand scientific principles and those who do not. It's the difference between ignorance and knowledge. The science is quite simple (CO2 increase in the atmosphere = greenhouse gas effect = global warming).
Let's just re-emphasize. Many right-wingers don't believe science. They believe the world is flat. They believe vaccines cause autism. The believe evolution is "only a theory" or that there's no way humans and apes can be related. They believe a single snowball anywhere in the world disproves global warming. They believe the sun revolves around the earth.
The evidence that the earth is heating up due to increased levels of CO2 in the atmosphere is indisputable (that's why 99% of climate scientists agree on it and there are virtually no peer-reviewed articles disproving global warming). You are conflating the science with the alarmism. If you don't believe in the alarmism, then that's fine, but arguing the science when the evidence and the data is clear that CO2 is increasing in the atmosphere and heating up the earth is like arguing that the world is flat.
I presume you believe we should go back to the days of using hair spray and other ozone destroying substances. Remember when politicians looked at the science, did something about it, and stopped the growth of the ozone hole by eliminating the products that were destroying it?
I suspect you're somebody whose hair needs a lot of hold and you're desperate for the old days when we could get a good hold on our hair and destroy the ozone at the same time.
This is where listening to conspiracy theories all day destroys one's mind - the inability to tell truth from fiction. The inability to be rational. And, applauding and supporting fascism.
You are making my point perfectly. Even using the Ozone example. I wrote about it in my article on climate change.
The science may be simple but global climate is not so simple. That is why we need to study it more and not accept the simple model that is present and failing in making projections...
If the greenhouse effect is the only driving force, our global temperature would be much higher by now. Just look at the CO2 concentrations growing past 400ppm and rising steadily...why are we not seeing temperature rise correspondingly? And storms geting more frequent and intense and sea level rising faster?
In fact, none of that is happening on the level they have projected. Watch Al Gore’s documentary to see exactly what I mean. At some point, even none scientists will realize that the climate scientists do not have a good understanding of climate just yet. The boy that cried wolf now has egg on their face. The warming is not happening as quickly as they predicted and they don’t understand why as they admitted it in their private email via climategate...
Some at the IPCC have even admitted that current measurements are within natural variations.
It saddens me that open dialogue is not possible. Disagree with conclusions on agreed upon data and you are somehow anti science. The witch hunters can't see how anti science they are.
I am an engineer by training and a science advocate. If you read my article, you would understand why the skeptics like me are perfectly in our right to question the current "science" of climate change.
Science by definition is not a consensus. It is either proven or it is not. Models are only as good as their projections. If the projections are wrong or miss the mark, there is something wrong with the model not the average person. I would not spent the past 10 years doing research and reading and attending lectures...if there was no question as to the current science claims. Unfortunately, it has been politicized by environmentalist and Hollywood celebrities and Al Gore...
I think you are perfectly within your rights. I just find it amusing that, often times, people with no knowledge of the science accuse those who are of ignorance on the matter.
We are not arguing the conclusions of the data. People are arguing that the data is falsified and/or not real.
This isn't about me convincing somebody about the science. This is about people not believing the data and the experts. I don't care whether you believe Al Gore. Al Gore isn't a scientist. But once again, the science on global warming is incontrovertible.
This is analogous to not getting your children vaccinated because you believe the doctors are lying to you and, instead, believing a few anecdotal stories about people who think their kids got autism after getting vaccinated.
This is the result of the oil industry spending millions and millions of dollars to discredit science.
This is analogous to believing that cigarettes don't cause cancer because you choose to believe the tobacco industry instead of the millions of doctors and scientists who have concluded that smoking cigarettes cause cancer. Do you all smoke? I don't see why you wouldn't. It's perfectly healthy, right? Think about all those years (40+?) where doctors were warning people about cigarettes causing lung cancer and people like you saying that no, the doctors are lying, cigarettes are perfectly healthy. Look at me, I'm smoking and I don't have lung cancer! Or what about my dad, he's smoked all his life and doesn't have cancer. Look, here's an exception that proves my entire theory that cigarettes don't cause cancer. Look!! And you bought into that lie because the tobacco industry spent millions and millions of dollars to discredit the scientists who were proving otherwise. But you listened to the tobacco industry instead of the doctors.
And now, you're listening to the oil industry instead of the scientists.
Ultimately, it's about preferring to believe conspiracy theories instead of science. Again, all you have to do is dig into climatology even a little and see that experts in this field agree almost 100% on the fact that the earth is heating up and what is causing it. We can disagree on the solutions. The fact remains.
If somebody tells me that the earth is flat, how can there even be rational dialogue after that? There are quite a few people who believe the earth is flat. If somebody tells me that the sun revolves around the earth, how can there be rational dialogue with that person? That person is choosing to believe conspiracy theories and unscientific internet research over the 99% percent of scientist who believe the earth revolves around the sun.
Do you realize that the percentage of climate scientists who don't believe that the earth is warming is the same as the percentage of scientists who don't believe that the earth revolves around the sun?
"....The scientists didn't politicized ....the politicians did ............"
No , science could have and still could produce real science , THAT would be a revelation wouldn't it ? You make out like all science What ? , has to go through Trumps hands before publishing ? B.S , and you absolutely know what that means .
These voices are NOT...." climate scientists ..." They are global warming science activists . pure and simply biased against true science . No children , we don't think ".......the world is flat ......." We just like science that shows its round and not goes against all the integrity of science itself.
"...........Listening to conspiracy theories all day ......." NO , we like the truth , If that what you say were even true , It would be far better than the "Walt Disney Science Kit " that you and your party politically romanticise .
You sound exactly like a conspiracy theorist. Obviously, you are a conspiracy theorist. Go to any atmospheric science department at any university in the united states and see if you can confirm your "facts" with them.
I get it. You're frightened that somebody is going to take away your gas guzzling pickup and make you drive a Prius or a Nissan Leaf. The solution is an entirely different discussion. The "China is cheating while we try to save the earth" argument is perfectly valid. What is not valid is arguing that there's no global warming. If you don't care about it, that's fine.
My favorite if the banana theory, proves the existence of God.
If the monkey dose not steal the banana first.
"That's great , Perhaps now you might enlighten us as to why the NOAA or any government funded..."
No, this is not something I want to do. I'm sure you have your theories as to why. I simply pointed out that climate prediction and climate change is in NOAA's job description.
"tinkering with climate data" Maybe not.
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/20/busi … bates.html
We can go back and forth for weeks with these types of arguments.
How about this...from WUWT today...
"I agree with Alexandria that the current Democrat leadership, whoever they are at this point in time, don’t seem to be taking climate change seriously.
Imagine for a moment that you truly believed anthropogenic global warming was an imminent deadly threat. If climate change really was an existential crisis, it simply wouldn’t make sense to campaign for or support the adoption of half measures. If you truly believed the future of your children depended on giving up your car, that your kids would all die if you and your neighbours continued to use fossil fuels, wouldn’t you demand everyone immediately give up their car? Wouldn’t you feel anger and frustration towards the self serving complacency of establishment politicians who kept trying to buy you off by offering tiny upward increments to their unambitious renewable targets?
The obvious explanation for mainstream Democrat moderation on climate issues is that most Democrat establishment politicians don’t really believe climate change is a serious issue. They offer a few token measures to win the votes of climate believers, while trying to avoid frightening off rich industrialists who are attracted to some of their other policies.
But hardcore climate fanatics aren’t complete fools. They might be wrong about climate change, but people know when they are just being used by politicians who don’t really care about their concerns.
It was inevitable that someone like Alexandria would arise – a true believer, someone who speaks to the hearts of fellow climate true believers, people who are fed up with being lied to and betrayed by the establishment."
I take it you're a smoker? You must be, because you have no reason to believe doctors and scientists about the effects of smoking and smoking is fun and gives a nice high. So why wouldn't you be a smoker?
Or maybe you're not a smoker, not because scientific evidence suggests it will cause you to die, but because you don't like it or it makes your clothing smell.
There are so many great things you can do when you don't believe basic scientific evidence. I enjoy getting X-rays for no reason.
It's a deal breaker to date a smoker,they taste like an ashtray.
You are avoiding answering the question posed by the author.
If Democrat leaders of government really believe in the threat of climate change, why are they not doing more? where is the legislation proposals? where is the huge fines? where is the PSA message?
Let's face it, if it was a dire threat, would they propose a voluntary accommodation like the Paris Accord?
You are not understanding the issues. With climate change, it is not a question if the world is warming. The issue is who is causing the warming?
Is it nature or man-made? next, is it something we can control? the debate is what is the best course of action? how do we deal with climate change. The environmentalist want all of us to stop burning fossil fuel... Is that possible?
try living is a world without fossil fuel for 1 month. you can't...
Wrong yet again. Why am I surprised? If all you ever get on FOX News is the alarmist version that Fox uses to scare everyone, I can see how you would believe what you believe.
However, the basic philosophy being promoted are common sense ways to reduce emissions of CO2 into the atmosphere. For instance, making cars more fuel efficient is a good start.
Btw, I don't believe in engineering. It's just a hoax created by nerds to get themselves jobs so they can have a bigger community of D&D players.
I understand the issue just fine which is why I specified that a majority of scientists agree that humans have a significant impact on climate change.
Most environmentalists want us to work towards finding cleaner energy and living more sustainably. Not to suddenly stop burning fossil fuels forever.
Most scientists do not understand that humans are causing the warming. The take it on faith that the greenhouse effect is true. I point to one specific example in my article.
Here is excerpt -
Recently, I attended a Colloquium at the Lamont Observatory, Columbia University (Palisades, NY). It was a talk by Dr. Neil Pederson of Harvard University.
His specialty is the study of tree forests. The title of the talk was “Did the climate of the late 20th Century mask mechanisms for rapid, large-scale change in eastern US forests?”
It was a very interesting talk because it gave me a real data point that is peripheral to the general climate change environment. What I mean is that his work is related to climate science and how it affects the tree population over long periods of time but it is not a study of climate change per se. In the course of his presentation, he put up a chart showing the average temperature of four regions of forests in the US over a period of last 100 years. His focus was on droughts but it surprised me because the temperature were even over that period and in fact one region even show a slight decline of temperature.
At the Q/A session at the end, I posed the question to Dr. Pederson and ask for his comment with regard to the claim of climate change scientists that the earth is warming. His response shocked me a bit. He didn't see any issue with that and ended his response that we are not seeing warming "yet." I was also struck by the lack of curiosity on his part. Why are we not seeing the predicted warming?
His talk ended with the conclusion that we are in the best time of environment for trees. The last 15 or 20 years are wet and not too warm and ideal for tree life. This was not always the case going back 300 years. his study have found periods of severe drought and frost that have had negative effects on forests in the US.
This incident relates to my assertion that most scientists are just doing their narrow study on the effects of climate change on some specific item. They "assume" that CO2 causes global warming almost religiously and don't even question that fact even when their own data fail to agree with that assertion. Instead of questioning it, they just move along and continue with their study and getting the grants.
Here is his chart -
Yes, surely most scientists are too stupid think critically about what they’re basing their research on. Or maybe they just love wasting their time and resources? Which do you suggest?
Most scientists are seeking grants for their research. For the last 30 years, if the research is not connected to climate change in some way, they don't get the grant... I learned this first hand from some scientists.
That is why they support climate change. Any dissent would be ostracized...

Why do you not believe in Global Warming/Climate Change?I have no doubt our earth is warming at an alarming rate. One of the reasons I think this is because of the photo I included with the question. Otzi--the Iceman--was frozen over 5000 years ago and has remained that way through all sorts of...
