Sketch, a short reply here. You are a waste of my time.


You ask me what your views are, and I answered as direct as possible. I gather my belief of your views from what you post. Why should I guess otherwise?

Go back and read your own posts, perhaps you'll get a glimpse of your own views instead of asking others to help define them for you.

But now I'm beginning to get your game. You make snide one-line quips that don't really show any opinion, but are passive aggressive attempts to discredit what others post. While you don't directly state your belief, I have gathered, from reading many of your posts, your general opinion. If I am wrong, it's because of your lack of communication skills.

Also, the cartoon was not a joke about the overreaction of the media. It was a pathetic attempt to discredit the studies. "There might be some melting in 1000 years..." You read the whole thing wrong, saw in it only what you wanted to see, which is par for the course.

The media didn't overreact, it posted summaries of what the scientific studies revealed; is the news itself sensational? Yes, it is very sensational.

Lastly, the MSM has been getting hit with the fact that they are under reporting the discoveries of climate science. Your attempt to say that the media is over reporting is flimsy and was a rather poor effort. You picked one very real story and showed how three different news outlets picked it up. Hardly over reporting.

Now go back and show us how they reacted to the release of AR5 (if you can find the stories in the news) and try again to make your silly point.

What is truly "compelling" is you and the rest of your guru clown bus Warmist brigade and the "reality" that you keep posting your insistent delusional bullshet of a dreamland utopia. Where everything is "normal" and constant. Nothing changes. Not even the climate.

that is awesome chef.

This breed here is one of the coolest breeds of dogs.



Bev Johnson and Mike Hoover had one named Murphy.

"Hoover!! I thought Murphy is female" I asked.

"She is and her full name is Shirley Murphy," he said lol.

One day there was a pack of coyotes and Murphy was barking at em.

Hoover said; "Go get em Murph ..."

I said; "Mike they'll kill her?"

Mike just smiled and said nothing.

After a long time Murphy still isn't aback and I was really get worried.

Mike just ignored me.

Finally after a a long period time had passed and just when I thought Murphy was toast she appears with the whole pack of coyotes in a playful mode.

Holy sh!t I was blown away .....

These glaciers already contribute significantly to sea level rise, releasing almost as much ice into the ocean annually as the entire Greenland Ice Sheet. They contain enough ice to raise global sea level by 4 feet (1.2 meters) and are melting faster than most scientists had expected. Rignot said these findings will require an upward revision to current predictions of sea level rise.

“This sector will be a major contributor to sea level rise in the decades and centuries to come,” Rignot said. “A conservative estimate is it could take several centuries for all of the ice to flow into the sea.”

So what does this mean for society? Curbing greenhouse gas emissions, and particularly the use of coal, makes sense for a host of reasons. But whatever happens on that front, there will be no new “normal” coastline for centuries to come.

This is from Sketch's NYT OpEd (the corrected one that is).

I read the quote from NASA news release, and I read Revkin's summary.

I gotta wonder, why does Revkin dumb down the news release? What is his ultimate goal? The NASA report says,

A conservative estimate is it could take several centuries for all of the ice to flow into the sea.

All of the ice??!!

From this Rivkin says "no new coastline for centuries to come"? Wow, is that ever an attempt to dumb down the news.

Looks like Sketch digs OpEds that dumb-down the seriousness of climate change. Am I right Sketch? Tell us, what's your view.

With the oceans scheduled to rise to disastrous levels, why is real estate right on the coast selling for the highest prices ever?

Why would anyone invest anything buying land that will soon be underwater?

Maybe the Smart Money knows something the scientists don't. It wouldn't be the first time.

Let the dumbasses build on the ocean. The ocean doesn't care, not for graphs, charts, schedules, predictions, million dollar condos, whatever. It'll swallow that sh#t whole when the time comes.

You'll learn more about why people do and think what they think and do by studying economics than you will studying psychology.

Even our own Military thinks that Global Climate Change is a significant threat.
Not Chuffie and the gang though. They are just to smart to be fooled by such obviously tyrannical Government over-reach.

The DOD also stated that daily intake of Marfloquine wasn't anything to worry about. I now suffer from several severe long term side affects from doing so over a 24 year period. It was totally banned in 2004 by the FDA as a toxic drug with irreversible long term side affects.

Suddenly the picture is much clearer.

Chaz...WTF are you smoking?

I don't know what he's smoking if anything, but I think he's at least sorta right here, as is Bruce in invoking good-'ol Kahneman, a psychologist by training but a "Nobel" winner in economics. (I use quotes because the "Nobel" in economics is essentially a fraud--it would be the same thing as if I started a prize in climbing and called it a "Nobel" prize. The real Mr. Nobel had nothing to with this economics prices.)

Everyone's favorite scientist on this thread, Dr. Ed, invokes behavioral economics in explaining why governments are unlikely to adopt effective policies in dealing with man-made climate change.

You are one angry and bitter old man that spews nothing but hate and distorted realities in the attempt to validate your, opinion.

Haha, I guess that he has read his own posts.
