Deja vu!

I thought it was just Rick who used the "no, YOU!" gradeschool form of argumentation.

Bravo.

Ron i suggest you read actual analysis of extreme weather[see averages] before you make such claims.
Extreme instances have happened at a higher rate globally since Gores movie.
They just have not been anywhere near you.
Hell where i live in the appalachians ,we have had plenty.Sandy , Irene,numerous tropical depressions that never make it up here usually.

All in the last 15 years

We had not had anything like that since the 70s when Agnes hit here.And you would have to go back considerably further to find more.

I have very little skin in this game,no kids ,no family.

I am a god damn carpenter,with a geology degree.

Should not even care.

But i am compelled,and if anything this thread has done ,it has simply reinforced that.

Resolute.

The intrepid science people here have done nothing but instill a drive for greater knowledge in this topic.

Arguetrarian yes.Scotch/Irish,yes.

The Arctic is changing and it's changing dramatically. We know this because the people that live here tell us so.

Of course we would love to have made it to Pond but travelling through the Arctic, it is absolutely essential that one considers facts and probabilities and not false hopes and wishes.

Oh, waaaaahhhh. Dry your eyes, Rong.

I would trust you to know about as much about sobriety as you do the climate. I am very happy. Well paid, beautiful wife, beautiful life.... Yeah, totally SUCKS. I sure wish I were unable to retire, alone, and spending every spare minute jabbering here. There's a difference between this online fantasy world and real life you know.

I merely gave you a little "nonsense" about last year's tiny windstorm back East before baiting the usual bears. I'd happily trade more personal shots with you as you seem to want, but I'm a bit tired of the not-so-veiled threats you resort to when your feelings get hurt.

Have a happy day posting, Rong Dong! I'm sure you will hold it down while I climb ;).

Nope you have it backwards.

It's us.

Everything we do affects the weather.

The more violent and greedy we become towards each other and against nature the more nature will retaliate ......

hmmmm,, so even your article says they really dont know the Natural Vs man caused problems Ten four..

Sooo now any weather events are labelled extreme? Havent we done that in the past? Like 100 yr events such as the flood of 97 in the great basin?

And why do they call those events by "100 yr" events? Well because on average they happen every 100 yrs,, at least thats the general thought eh?


What i constantly see in the GW side is that they taylor the facts to fit their angle. The angle should come second, after the facts. Cart before the horse is a way to get nowhere.

The angle should come second, after the facts.

You're not listening Ed. As Ron points out, that magnitude of storm happens only once every 100 years. Why do you think it is called a 100 year event? It is a hundred year event now and so it will be 100 years from now. That is a fact that you should not try to angle your way around.

Meanwhile in the real world... The Australian people handed the Labor Party, with their carbon tax and rabid green agenda, a landslide defeat today. They Australians were ahead of us on this climate change front. The people have awakened and Australians are again ahead of us, this time in treating the mass hysteria that delivered job losses, skyrocketing energy bills, unreliable current generation alternative energy, and no net CO2 reduction. The new prime minister and government was elected, to a large degree, by vowing to end the carbon tax.Read em and weep,or jump for joy, this will happen here also.

Forget about "The Science" of doom. Fire up your scroungeatron and find us some scientific applications to make life better in the real world.

No it dosn't, but as you can tell by Ricks gloating he was never particularly interested in the science anyway.

Interesting little turn of events down there. it sounds like there's quite a bit more to it than the carbon tax issue, such as the parlimentary dysfunction and a refugee boat people crisis, plus a decrease in mining trade to china which may have played into the anti carbon tax histrionics. Any Ausies out there to chime in?

BTW Rick, its really refreshing to see you letting your freak flag fly. It must feel good after all that posing as a science geek and I bet your wife likes it too!

Serves them right: exporting all of their resources to China, steadily turning their own country into an even bigger wasteland of fire and desert. Robert Hughes has the best window into the Australian soul.

"Find us some scientific applications to make life better in the real world"

Rick,that is the main intention of the scientific/green movement involved in climate change.

It is not the intention of the government or scientists to enslave our population with overbearing taxes or to destroy the economy.

It is the drone of propaganda from the FF industries that is responsible for holding these technologies back.

Solutions,new industries,adaptations and alternatives will fuel the new economy.

Wilbeer, i'm sorry to say you are on the naive side if you actually believe what you said in your above post. I've seen these people in action all too often, sometimes too up close and personal. Those not motivated by the hideous vision that humanity is a virus in the body of planet Earth and should be removed are all too often motivated by greed to control and mobilize the aforementioned for personal gain. The oil companies are often behind funding the rabid greens by extortion or willingly as a way, through increased regulation and cost of entry, to eliminate their lesser competitors.

On another note: All of you should look up the article titled " Global warming? No, actually we're cooling, claim scientists". It's in today's Daily Telegraph, i would provide a link but it doesn't seem to work. Anyway, for you people more familiar with the IPCC process- is there validity in the article's statement that many country's are demanding more than 1500 changes to the report?

Back to work for me for the 19th straight day. So much to do and so little time to do it.
