    You just gave you the truth in plain sight about 1976 when the earth warmed okay well it didn't warm we warmed it and he just gave you that clue yeah I know what he's saying but that's how these people work they give you the truth in plain sight and you need to work it out and if you're too stupid to do it it's your fault that's the way they roll. He's telling you we started a huge program in 1976 and that's probably win long Chemtrails were first started being seen coming out of military crafts

    it was all denial

    Michaels, currently the Director of the Center for the Study of Science at the Koch-founded and funded Cato Institute, has built a career vending doubt about the reality of climate change and denying its urgency. His contributions as an ‘expert’ to stall action on climate change have been subsidized for decades by the industries that have the most to lose from any such action, some of which are named respondents in the Commission’s investigation.

    Just think about those folks. Billions of dollars of your tax money go to subsidize cop, oil and other polluters. Why do they need our money? Well they don’t obviously how stupid our way. But the politicians need to kickbacks they get in the form of campaign contributions from the polluters hook at the subsidies. It’s simple corruption folks and are you climate change deniers you’re just playing right into their hands or hands of the polluters and blue corrupters

    Wait, there are actually lots of people here that STILL believe global warming (/climate change) is not real??? People, stop pretending it isn't real just so you can continue to live in your happy little dream world. This is an actual real, seriously catastrophic issue and threat that needs to be taken care of SOON. So if you don't grow up and accept that we have a problem for the sake of all of future humanity, we are doomed. I'm not a certified professional (at least not yet) but there are lots and lots and lots of other sources that can tell you all about global warming. People seem to still think global warming is still something very unclear that scientists can't agree on but that's not actually true. An overwhelming percentage of experts agree that global warming is a very serious issue.

    As Tree Creeper says, global warming and pollution are different. We all want to live in a cleaner environment and should continue working towards improving the situation at ground level. I'm on board with this. As for global warming, I believe it's a natural occurance and a great tax revenue generating machine for the mislead but compassionate masses. Those in power are definitely going overboard with this.

    Ice melting does not raise sea levels. When Ice melts is occupies less space than it did in solid form. The very little sea level rise is from a multitude of conditions. Volcano's / Costal Erosion / Earth quakes on the sea floor where it is lifted and Humankind infilling to make more useable land. Not melting ice, so do not fear that scientists told you NY should be under 1M of water by now

    Who funds the Cato Group where this clown works? THE KOCH BROTHERS. Oil men. The Freedom of Information Act request shows that the Western Fuels Association, a coal and fuel-transportation business group, gave him a $63,000 grant in the early 1990s for “research on global climatic change.” He also received $25,000 from the Edison Electric Institute, an association of electric utilities, from 1992-95 for “literature review of climate change and updates.” And a 2006 leaked industry memo revealed that he received $100,000 in funding from the Intermountain Rural Electric Association to fund climate denial campaigning around the time of the release of An Inconvenient Truth. Michaels also received $49,000 came from the German Coal Mining Association and $40,000 from the western mining company Cyprus Minerals. Biased much?

  • Mark Ward

    Global warming is real, but it is not really global warming. Large cities and expansive highways and roads absorb heat from the sun and multiply that heat giving it back including at night which is not normal. Glass buildings, cars, signs, steel, etc. reflect and amplify the sun's solar radiation and heat. The lack of trees in large cities increases the temperatures in the city area. The area under a forest is 20 degrees cooler than the open areas. As the huge amounts of man made heat rise, they affect the surrounding air and act like a mini tornado. The vortex of heat upsets the normal weather patterns and produces unnatural weather events especially during the summer and hottest days. The reason "pollution" is blamed is to divert from the REAL cause of our violent weather patterns and changes and overall climate changes since those in power would never allow anyone to disrupt the tens trillions of dollars profits each year from developments, expansion and building in large cities, and related concrete and asphalt roads. Ban all fossil fuels and unless you tear down all the huge solar heat collectors and heat concentraters called "cities" it will only get worse. We need to start spreading out and stop expanding and concentrating everything in giant cities like New York, LA, Atlanta, Chicago, etc.. Yea, I said it. I stand behind it and I am not alone including top scientists who have also stated the same thing I did. There are tens of thousands of cases where people parked their cars next to a glass skyscraper and the reflected heat from the sun melted the interior in just a few hours. What do you think that type of heat is doing to the weather patterns? What fool does not get the connection?

      @Strato I've seen plenty more that makes me seriously worry about the 'science' of climate change. As a simulations engineer, their use of computational models is all wrong. As a man versed in the principles of science, their frequent refusal to hand over their base data is even more worrying. As someone with a basic understanding of orbits and their consequences, their 'corrections' of satellite date is totally unjustifiable (i.e. how they do it and the results, not that they do it).

    Computerworks 2 days ago +2

    Regardless of what the various computer models say, the Earth's climate IS warming and the ice caps and glaciers ARE melting. You can see all this with your own eyes. The warming climate is causing the jet stream's course to change and the oceans to warm, which is leading to erratic and extreme weather events, and most seriously, destroying sealife and farm crops. We are already seeing growing famine worldwide, and within a decade, if will reach a biblical scale. The paid liars rarely mention these facts because they are intentionally trying to distract and confuse the public with doublespeak and fabricated data. Research the melting of the Arctic, Antarctic, and Greenland ice, and believe in your own common sense.

      @Apprentice Blacksmith I am more interested in the data itself and how it was aquired and processed. If that is solid, the evidence is. Did you know one requirement of peer reviewed science is that the research can be reproduced? Meaning all evidence on climate change is available to be falsified. How come it does not happen? I guess Republicans that actually know about (climate) science and evolution (there must be some that are smart enough to understand it) would be the first one to do that if they could. Mind you, the fraud from this video just talks, but did not publicate a paper on his "evidence". Why? Because real scientists would falsify his paper to the garbage that it is. That would be very bad for his reputation. Hell, he would not even pass the peer-review with this nonsense. So this conspiracy theory about global warming science that denialists always bring up is just a desperate non-argument born out of a lack of real arguments. And look who is talking: a man that supports a '"scientist" paid by the Koch brothers to discredit real science. This is the Trumpian moron strategy: manipulate, and create as much confusion as possible to delay action by accusing the other side of exactly what you are doing yourself. Agressive careless morons.

    I have been saying the same things for years. I am 62 and know well weather is not static - it's rather impossible - nor will it be the same today as 40 years ago. Climate changes day to day, year to year and has since the earth was a thing. What kind of weather do the myopic Climate Change people want? What kind of weather did ALGORE ever present as idyllic?
    Michaels was spot on with his opening comment of "Because there is more stuff".

    This is from the rather biased Fact Sheet from the UN Ocean Conference from June 2017; 2 years ago.

    More than 600 million people (around 10 per cent of the world’s population) live in coastal areas that are less than 10 meters above sea level.
    Nearly 2.4 billion people (about 40 per cent of the world’s population) live within 100 km(60 miles)of the coast.

    The world population is steadily increasing and since they are 3rd world they take to the coast as they lived in their shitholes.
    A lot of Americans I know think a waterfront home is the ultimate goal. A lot of them make it so. Lots of them move to and build where hurricanes are known to historically hit and do damage. The closer you are to sea level ensures you will incur more damage and most likely flooding.
    Is it climate change cause by man? No, it is the same storms that have made landfall for eons; there are simply more people in those regions and it does more damage to the stuff they build. More people means more people can die due to the sheer numbers of people subject to exposure.
    According to the 2010 US census...
    In 2010, the population of the states which have shoreline on the
    East Coast was estimated at 112,642,503 (36% of the country's total
    population). The East Coast is the most populated coastal area in the
    United States.[7]
    Apply that science to the entire globe and it's most likely 1000 fold.

    What caused the dust bowl in the Midwest during the 30s? Global Warming?

      @alwaysopen "You still believe oil is a fossil fuel? That's half of your problem." What a puerile comment. The term fossil fuel, whilst obviously a misnomer, is the accepted term, isn't it. That you aren't aware of this is indicative of your problem, crass stupidity. Oh, and extreme gullibility.
      Well done proving you don't know the difference between weather, seasons and climate. and also belive that isolated local events equate to global events.

    Parameterizing is not fudging. Now I understand the point he's trying to make, and I understand that parameterizing 10 leads to inaccuracies. And I tend to believe that he is right about what is happening with respect to the models and climate change. But I wouldn't go around using the word fudging. It may be more accurate to say that the models have a number of assumptions that bias a certain result.

    • Serge Mooyman
      Serge Mooyman 3 days ago +1

      Predictions have been rather careful, as scientists are tought that reliability is a main factor. And indeed, current measurements of temperature increase and loss of ice mass surpass predictions at an alarming rate.

      No. Data are corrected for known errors and the predictions have been pretty accurate, unless you follow the lying denier policy of totally ignoring everything other than worst case scenarios.

    Can I clarify something here please. Am I right in thinking that democracy is based on the premise that 'The Government are the people and the People are the Government' I am not naive enough to believe that we actually have a democracy anymore in the USA and the UK (Where I am from).
    However, when you hear these hardline, right wing capitalists (eg Dr Michaels) suggesting that the Government should not be getting involved in the energy business (or any other big business for that matter that has a strangle hold on the population), it's almost that they are suggesting that the Government are an independant entity that has no right to upset the applecart for the elite owners of the big corporations. Just as a side note, I notice that the likes of Dr Michaels are more than happy for governments to get invovled when they act for the benefit of the corporations.
    We the people are the government, and we need to wake up and remember that!!! We need to take control back from these Oligarchs, and their apologists like Dr Michaels. Let's reinstate Democracy.

    Hey, this guy is brilliant, so educated, so correct. Global warming is a hoax. Air pollution is an illusion. Plastics in the ocean, the smokestacks in China and their cities air pollution is just what environmentalists want to see, but not actual. The earth will expire one way or another in 10,000 years. So he correctly discredits the environmentalists who are merely whacko conspiracy theorists who are influencing people for their own financial gains. Brainwashing our children with these unproven ideas of human made climate change is a left wing conspiracy. It is a cult led by stupid people who want power over others. Yeah! Let's speak the truth, like this guy. The idea that over a million species have become extinct and the Amazon forest is being destroyed, are not to be believed. People, If you don't agree with me, investigate it and get the facts. Thanks, for helping put these tree huggers and environmental activists in their place. :)

      You right wing extremists are such horrible people. How can you deny plastics in the ocean, cutting down th Amazon? Stuff that is on so many videos. Maybe your rapist president has taught you that lying is the new virtue? Is it an exposure of personal power to be able to deny the truth in full daylight? To me, you just prove you are a horrible person.

    The Liberals are always telling me how " Educated" they are. Did you ever stop to think that you might be learning the wrong information? Is that beneficial? Or is that the reason Liberals appear to be incredibly ignorant and unintelligent?

    • Serge Mooyman
      Serge Mooyman 2 days ago

      @Michael Smith Well, since you clearly state liberals are "incredibly ignorant and unintelligent", I guess you should be smart enough to check the relatively simple evidence on climate change? So how come you still deny it? If you'd do the work you'd see for yourself that denying climate change is a waste of time that should be spend on action mitigating it. Saying peer reviewed science can't be trusted is a lame excuse for not doing the work required before you actually know what you are talking about. And since you are so smart, I am looking forward to your analysis of the scientific findings on climate change.

      I wish Science could be trusted. It appears that data research has been subject to "peer reviews" a clever way of saying " edited" or put into the proper Scientific context by way of filters and eliminating what they call " anomalies"
      It was the same when Big Oil funded their research. What to leave out and what to leave in, and what to allow you and I access to is really being decided by dead presidents who roll around in the pockets of the same Liberal Scientists who have formed a consensus that Climate Change is Real...Real Profitable. Too profitable to allow the so-called "deniers" to publish anything without "Accounting or Peer reviews"

    It will go no higher than 430 ppm.
