As far as i'm concerned the whole argument is stupid. <br />
If people were forced to live each day ba<x>sed on a weathermans predictions, how would we live at all?? Climate science is not a finite science. Its about predictability... not addition/subtraction or even common sense. <br />
Humans do not "own" the planet. We live here but it doesn't belong to us. So why does it matter who's right or wrong? LESS pollution is always better than more. That's the only thing that has been proven accurate.
All deniers are driven by hidden agendas.
It's not so "hidden". I would venture to most deniers are profit driven. Environmental science and protections reduce profits. Or, just political pundits. The party claims its not true, so it must not be true.
What do you suppose ended the last six ice ages?
So, natural forces. Yet this time it requires more tax money to resolve? Just what is the correct temperature for the earth and how does anyone know? What would be wrong with a warmer earth?
Mars is warming too. And Jupiter and Pluto...
what caused the last six ice ages?
Its because of the SUV's that they maritians. jupitertarians and plutonians are driving.
# 1. You are aware of the false reports of temp in russia a china? What better way for to damage our economy then by do it our selves?
# 2 Are you aware that the stations in the USA are in heat islands? They were first placed at Fire stations so they could collect the data, sounds like a good idea but what is all around a fire station? Concrete!
yea thats a way to collect untainted data!
Is it going to rain next Thursday? If you know whats going to happen in the philippines why don't you know? BTW, Why are mars, Jupiter and Pluto warming? I still want to know. Why don't you want to know? No taxpayers there?
Those people are crazy.
Either they are not really good scientists, or they have a hidden agenda...*as I sit at a power plant auditing a CO2 monitor....
It's all those cow's and other vegetarians, they keep putting to much methane in the air.
I'd like to know what the Scientists have to say about scientists first
CO2 would be just one of the causes, as far as I've heard/read/seen
Do they do that, exactly what do they deny. I think this is where people screw up, they should just concentrate on one thing at a time. Does co2 cause the green house effect don't go any further till that argument is settled.
But what are the politicians in Washington denying, do they refuse to believe that co2 will create a green house effect, that c02 is rising exactly what is it that they are denying other than the general statement that we are the cause of global warming.
I can understand now how nothing is being done, that was a complex answer to a simple question. Not that is a question I need to ask you but a question people need to ask politicians. It is not real complicated, you start with asking them does increasing c02 levels cause the greenhouse effect make them say yes or no and back it up.
because CO2 is a lagging indicator NOT a leading one.
Regardless of what caused initial warming to get out of an ice age the lag in CO2 levels does not in any way contradict the idea that higher CO2 levels cause warming.
C02 is a lagging indicator. We have had ZERO temperate increase in the past 17 years.
What is the point, I would think it is more important to note whether is is an accurate indicator not the timing of it. If it goes along with global warming it does not matter if its change is faster slower. From a geological standpoint 17 years is not even a bat of the eyelash. As far as temperature goes the atmosphere is huge, so is the ocean and I am not sure what you are basing that on. The oceans hold a great deal of heat, water does that you know, and the temperature varies greatly across the globe and with depth. I do know that we have known for 100 years that greenhouse gas traps heat and scientist have discovered nothing to change that it is a fact of science. You can't destroy heat it is transferred energy. Heat either increases temperature or transforms matter such as changing a solid to a liquid, think ice to water. But forget ice that is not where most of the heat is going , the oceans are acting like a heat sink and it is going to catch up with us is what I think.
Many people call themselves 'scientists'. "Global warming" is a passe phrase. Here, it is 23 April and I am wearing a heavy jacket today. That is hardly "warming".
Don't confusing climate science with meteorology (daily weather). Climate is the study of predictable trends over decades or longer. When you look at THOSE numbers, the earth is most certainly warming. Its been mathematically proven. WHY is the question...not That.
"Global Warming" is what it was originally called in the 1990's. "Climate Change" is what it is called now and better describes the varying effects it is having in different regions of the world.
LOL its called climate change because the masses have caught on to the notion that global warming is BUNK!
The jury still seems to be out on whether increased CO2 levels are the cause or the symptom. We do know that we are near the end of the last true ice age. Other than that, all is pure speculation.
Honestly you do realize that co2 is what plants breath and is needed? It gets in the are when ever a plant dies, the only kind of co2 that is a problem is the one coming from fossil energy sources... Oh and it has been proven that at least the bigger part of the global warming is part of the natural rithm of our planet, it gets warmer till the ice melts rivers in the oceans get stopped and then they stop transporting warmth, that's when the next ice age starts... All that the so called global warming might do is speed up the whole process... You do realize so far can't create elements therefore we can't put anything on the planet it can't deal with... It might alternate it and make it anything but a workable invirement for us but the planet won't really bother...
Those are sciontits, can't tell the difference when they say it on the tv
