    Climate change has been a part of the world since it was created. There has always been climate change, it changes on a daily basis. Wether ot not we're having an effect on the climate is the real question. Less than one degree celcius rise in the last 100 years, that could be solely from solar activity, it could be from volcanic activity, it could be from us as well. It's probably from a large variety of sources. What can we control? We cannot control much, but we can reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere not by getting rid of all the cars, airplanes and power plants, but by planting trees. Planting trees will have a huge impact on CO2 in the atmosphere, they also produce O2. That how nature deals with increased CO2, as levels increase pants grow bigger and faster reducing CO2 and increasing O2. People need to plant trees, lots and lots of trees. They will help the environment and provide resources for industry.

    Funny how not one person ever reflects on the roughly1600 nuclear bombs exploded during testing. The US some 1100 and Russia some 500. Estimated only 75% were exploded underground. Nah, I guess they don't count. Same as the 500 to 600 volcanic eruptions in.the last 100 years. AOC is on the ball about cow farts as being the culprits. Waitress could you please pull my finger.

      Straw man argument. Everybody believes in "climate change", because the climate always changes, with or without humans.
      The questions are 1) Are humans the primary cause. and 2) Does it present impending doom or catastrophe.
      If number 2 is true, then make a prediction about when it will happen, or sthu. The "climate change" gravy train has to end if their predictions continue to fail.

    espite Being One Of A Few Contrarians, Michaels Is Prominent Media Figure. Michaels made about 49 major media appearances from 2007 to July 2011 (13 of them on Fox News), according to a Nexis search. In addition, The Washington Times and Forbes often publish opinion pieces by Michaels and do not disclose his funding from the fossil fuel industry. Yet during that time, Michaels only published four peer-reviewed climate articles. In comparison, 97 percent of the most actively publishing climate researchers agree that "most" of recent warming is manmade, and 84 percent of climate scientists say the public should be told to be worried or "very worried" about climate change. Despite this, USA TODAY, The Washington Post, and CNN all hosted or quoted Patrick Michaels in 2012.

    Michaels' Losing Bets
    On Temperature Trends
    Michaels "Bet" In 1999 There Would Be A "Statistically Significant Cooling Trend" From 1998 To 2008. In a Cato post that was later published as a Washington Times op-ed, according to Nexis, Patrick J. Michaels wrote that he would place a "bet" that "the 10 years ending on December 31, 2007, will show a statistically significant global cooling trend in temperatures measured by satellite":
    I'm willing to wager two things. First, I'll bet that anyone who said global warming is an overblown bunch of hooey had a terrible time at this year's holiday cocktail parties. Second, I'll take even money that the 10 years ending on December 31, 2007, will show a statistically significant global cooling trend in temperatures measured by satellite.
    [...]
    Last year was so warm that it induces a statistically significant warming trend in the satellite data. Thus the second bet: Starting with 1998, there will almost certainly be a statistically significant

    A review of claims made by the Cato Institute's Patrick Michaels over the last quarter century shows that he has repeatedly been proven wrong over time. Michaels is one of a few contrarian climate scientists who is often featured in the media without disclosure of his funding from the fossil fuel industry.

    Our seas and oceans are filling with plastic, our forests are being burnt down, species are being hunted to extinction, billions of cigarette butts are making their way into our waterways every day - and the so called greens and environmentalists have got us all focused on something which does not exist. Why? Because they want to put Western nations at a competitive disadvantage against other countries, most notably Communist China. What evil people these climate change activists are.

      On a cool night, if you have the bedroom window open but turn up the space heater in the room and close the window partway, the room gets warmer. Burning fossil fuels does both things--it adds staggering amounts of excess heat to the Earth's atmosphere while making it 50% harder for that heat to escape into space. Of course global warming is real, and WE are the one's causing it. It's very simple physics.

      Yes, most politicians and scientists are 'on board with it'.

This is the nature of the climate change cult - if you don't agree with the brainwashing you're evil.

    Why were 20 of the last 22 years the hottest in recorded history?

    • SwiftlyTiltingPlanet
      SwiftlyTiltingPlanet 4 hours ago

      @True Believer They adjust raw data because if they didn't, it wouldn't be accurate. Temperatures were taken in the mornings in one half of the last century and in the afternoons in the other. That difference must be accounted for. Satellites drift up and down in their orbits, affecting how much radiance their sensors receive. That must be accounted for. Ocean temps were for many years collected over the side of ships, which might add a fractional difference in heat from nearby ship engines. Today temps are taken from buoys away from ships. This must be accounted for. Raw data simply is not accurate. Often, when making these adjustments, the temperatures end up lower. It's not always warmer, as conspiracy theorists always assume.

      The Department of Commerce engaged the highly respected MITRE organization to assemble a panel of leading scientists to investigate claims of data tampering at NOAA. The scientists were unrelated to NOAA. Their report, ASSESSMENT OF NATIONAL OCEANIC AND ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION SCIENTIFIC INTEGRITY POLICIES AND PROCEDURES was released in December of 2018 and found no evidence of wrongdoing or tampering.

      As I'm sure you know, the Climategate scientists in the "hide the decline" controversy were also fully exonerated, with a half a dozen investigative committees finding no scientific fraud or dishonesty. The entire scandal was based on a misquote taken out of context, which conservative media extrapolated wildly about without knowing the facts.

      @FalconGamer58 Thanks for your reply. "we'd collapse if we opted for economic energy because it wouldn't be producing enough, best thing is burning fossils"

      Maybe I wasn't maybe myself clear enough. Continuing to burn fossil fuels is slow suicide for humanity is because it's warming the planet, destabilizing the climate, causing epic storms, wildfires, and floods, and crop failures. If the ecosystems collapse, humanity dies in massive numbers.

      The idea that CO2 is good for plants comes from carefully controlled greenhouse experiments that don't reflect real-world consequences. In the real world, warming is causing more moisture to go to the clouds, forests to dry and burn (when not being invaded by beetles due to the warmer temps), and crops like grains to be less nutritious. To understand the real systems effects of all this CO2 and warming, the last time the Earth warmed as rapidly as we are warming, 90+% of aquatic life went extinct, as did over 70% of species on land, including everything over 90 pounds. We are killing the ecosystems that keep us alive and burning fossil fuels and eating meat are two of the most destructive parts of the equation. It doesn't matter what we WANT our lives to be like: Either we scale back on consumption of raw materials, reduce pollution, reduce energy consumption and stop burning fossil fuels, or the laws of nature will force us to change (with hundreds of millions to billions of humans dying in the process). The party is over: Industrialized capitalism was a terrible idea--the most destructive in history, but we didn't notice because we started telling ourselves the lie that humans are somehow separate from or above nature.
      Take care.

      @Hans Christian Andersen More than two dozen studies and climate reconstructions confirm Mann's hockey stick data. I'd be happy to provide links to every one of those studies if you'd care to read them. That data has been vetted and affirmed by the National Academy of Sciences, just like the 97% consensus has been vetted and publicly endorsed by 80 international academies of science.
      If you think your pseudoscientific, conspiratorial, or oil industry-funded blogosphere has better peer-reviewed data, present it.
      Nobody homogenized anything away. You're being duped by idiots like Tony Heller and Anthony Watts. The global temps around the world in the 80s were higher than those from the 30s or before. You're being confused by temp records from the United States, which represents two percent of the world's surface area, far too small to serve as a global proxy.
      Sea levels wax and wane with every glacial and interglacial period. The earth grows cold, the ice sheets form, and sea levels go down. When the earth grows warm again, the ice sheets melt, increasing sea levels again. The cycle has repeated itself for millions of years. The periodic changes are triggered by Milankovitch Cycles, perturbations in earth's orbit, axial tilt and wobble caused by gravitational nudges from Jupiter and Saturn and other factors. The cycles come around every several thousand years and are entirely predictable. (The various cycles repeat at around 20,000 years, 41000 years and 100,000 years.) The changes affect how much sunlight the earth receives, and even a small change can bring about radical shifts in climate. (up to five degrees Celsius and 120 meters of sea level rise or fall.) All three Milankovitch cycles are currently in phases favoring cooling, not warming.
      High tide flooding has doubled in the last 30 years alone, according to NOAA. That flooding damage has already cost Miami half a billion dollars. Boston has spent millions after suffering the highest flooding tide in its history in 2018. Part of Annapolis has closed shops and streets as often as 65 times in a year because of high tide flooding. Queens, NY residnets are slogging down sidewalks through ankle-deep seatwater during king tides. 1000 Pacific Islands will become uninhabitable by 2050 due to sea level rise, according to a U.S. Military study last year.
      Increment by increment, the sea will continue to rise, with astronomical high tides, king tides and storm surges flooding further and further inland, threatening millions of homes, businesses and utilities around the world. According to FEMA, it only takes a single inch of floodwater in your home to cause $25000 in damage. Now you do the math and tell me one-eighth of an inch of sea level rise per year is harmless. Or are you naive?

Do you actually understand what homogenization actually means??? Or are you to naive?

    • SwiftlyTiltingPlanet
      SwiftlyTiltingPlanet 12 hours ago

      @Hans Christian Andersen Here are the projections from 30 years ago that the models got right:
      TEMPERATURE WILL CONTINUE TO RISE: 20 of the last 22 years have been the hottest in recorded history, according to NOAA. The last five years have been the hottest in recorded history. July was the hottest month in recorded history. June the hottest June. The oceans are now the hottest in recorded history. Warming of 5-7 degrees in Alaska, northern Canada and the Arctic are unprecedented in recorded history. Record hot days are now outpacing record cold days by a two to one margin, unprecedented in recorded history. The 2018 global heatwave spanning seventeen countries was the most extensive heatwave in recorded history.
      ICE SHEET MELTING WILL CONTINUE AND ACCELERATE: 95% of the Arctic's oldest, thickest ice is now gone. It is GONE. See NASA TIME LAPSE VIDEO OF ARCTIC ICE and see for yourself. What remains is much thinner, younger ice, but even that is being steadily eaten away. Greenland and Antarctica are also melting at unprecedented rates. See Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences archives for studies.
      GLACIERS WILL CONTINUE TO RETREAT: Over 90% are in rapid retreat.
      SEA LEVEL WILL CONTINUE TO RISE: Sea levels are rising an average of 3.3 mm per year and accelerating, according to NASA and European satellite data and worldwide tide gauges. When two methodologies come up with the same numbers, we ought to take it seriously.
      HIGH TIDE FLOODING WILL INCREASE: According to NOAA, high tide flooding up and down the American east coast has doubled in just the last 30 years. Miami has already spent nearly a half billion dollars to mitigate the damage. Boston, Annapolis, Queens and others are also being hit by increasing flooding costs.
      RAINSTORMS WILL GROW HEAVIER: Epic rains have increased steadily, according to EPA statistics taken since 1958. Just ask Houston. Just ask the midwest farmers.
      If you stare too intently at a pixel, you miss the big picture surrounding it. No model can predict with pinpoint, surgical accuracy, right down to the fractional level what will occur thirty years down the road. But they've been amazingly accurate at getting the big picture predictions right, as detailed above.

    • SwiftlyTiltingPlanet
      SwiftlyTiltingPlanet 4 hours ago

      @True Believer Yes, I do know how statistics work. July was the hottest month in recorded history, which means, all the way back to about 1880, when science agrees that global records became reliable enough to trust. But 20 of the last 22 years were also the hottest in recorded history. The last five years were the hottest in recorded history. The ocean temps are the hottest in recorded history. The 2018 global heatwave spanning 17 countries was the most extensive in recorded history. Warming of 5-7 degrees in Alaska, northern Canada and the Arctic is unprecedented in recorded history. Record hot temperatures now outpacing record cold temperatures by a two to one margin are unprecedented in recorded history. In a stable environment, those numbers should nearly match.
      So what does it mean? Taking into consideration over two dozen studies and climate reconstructions, including that of Michael Mann, whose data has been affirmed by the National Academy of Sciences, it hasn't been this hot in well over a thousand years. Temperatures in the 1990s, in fact, overtook those in the Medieval Warm Period and the Roman Warm Period, and we have since left those periods in the dust.
      In fact, all of the proxy data shows that for about 2000 straight years, we were exeriencing a steady cooling trend, until we hit the Industrial Revolution, when the trend reversed.
      Is it natural? The data says no. All three Milankovitch cycles (changes in earth's orbit, axial tilt and wobble, which affect how much sunlight we receive) are all in phases favoring cooling, not warming. The sun's output has also been trending down for years and it is, in fact, in the very depths of its minimal phase right now. The earth should be cooling slightly because of that lower output, but it's not. It's continung to warm.
      NASA's ground-based spectroscopy clearly identifies heat radiating back to earth from molecules of C02 and methane. It's not guesswork. It's empirical evidence of a greenhouse effect.
      Which means, the recent heating of the last few decades are not natural and are statistically significant. Records will always be broken somewhere on earth. But when global, not regional, records are shattered, we should really sit up and take notice.

    • True Believer
      True Believer 7 hours ago

      Dude, do you understand how statistics work? We have a VERY small sample size (about 100 years).
      Records will be broken all the time. What if you have 3 years of data, what would it mean to say "wow, this year is the hottest on record"? What if you have 10 years? It is meaningless to say "July is the hottest on record"when you have merely 100 years of data, because that record can and will be broken all the time over the course of 1000 years.
      It's like saying that a baseball team with a 5-0 record is "the best in all of baseball" because they haven't lost yet, but there's still 160 games left in the season. It's a useless statement.
      "The hottest July on record" means absolutely nothing without a very large data set, which we do not have. It is guaranteed to be beaten again, with or without CO2 emissions.

      The oil industry has provided funding of over $500 million to climate change denial groups in order to teach you to recite posts exactly like that. (Source: Drexel University and the Union of Concerned Scientists) Notice how the narrative has been reversed? It's not the oil companies that are to blame. It's the scientists. Marketing 101 triumphs again and half the population is none the wiser.

      @Richard Easbey Neither Galileo nor Copernicus believed the earth was flat. Bronze Age people of the Bible did. But scientists? No. The "humors" theory was not based on over 100,000 peer-reviewed studies, as climate change is.

      @joseph french Hansen has been consistently right. His hockey stick data has been confirmed by over two dozen climate reconstructions and is affirmed by the National Academy of Sciences. Would you like me to supply links to those studies? Go back to science class, Joseph. And when I say "science class," I don't mean the oil industry blogosphere.
