Rick it is pretty hard to debunk an opinion...you have yours and we have proven it is WRONG repeatedly but you still hold on to the edge of the flat earth.

Let's talk solutions to the problem...if we had 100% of the people doing SOMETHING small in thier daily lives it would add up to a big difference...

Here are some of the things that I have done this past year:

Planted a large garden of hot peppers, sweet potatoes, Gabi (Taro), chile peppers, Sayote, Ampalaya, basil

Pumped all water for showers, drinking, washing and watering my garden from a deep well.

Walked to and from all destinations less than 5 miles--took public transport (bus) to all other destinations (climbing mostly)

these are just a few examples---I wanted to use solar power but couldn't find a store that had solar panels in Cebu Philippines

It wasn't very long ago when the argument was that the Earth has not been warming at all. It is a moving target. Why? Imagine the expense and difficulty of converting our lives to non-fossil fuels. No airplanes, for example.

It should be science, but it has always been political since day one. I am damn glad that I don't have that kind of scrutiny over my work.

I was watching a lecture on climate change and snow pack the other day, and the data looks like the northern hemisphere is going to be affected far more than the southern hemisphere. Antarctica is always white and shiny. When summer ice goes away in the arctic, there goes the albedo reflection. Sure there will be ice in winter, but it is dark in winter.

I'm enjoying watching all of this play out. If you just read this thread it makes you wonder if mankind deserves the reigns to the planet.

Rick, start doing searches about Arctic Vortex Collapse and you'll see that the cold is a result of changes in the Arctic because of AGW. The first link I gave you doesn't mention AGW, but the warm air entering the Arctic isn't coming from some far of mythological future iceage. Your trouble is that you are surrounded by people with their heads in the sand (more like snow where you are), and it's going to be very difficult to break out of that. The other problem is; there is lots of support to keep your head in the snow with places like the Heartland Institute for the Blind. I read that crap and I fear for our countries future. I don't expect you to change, but try reading something on the net besides comic books. Don't read and look for stuff that supports the fact that you don't want climate change to be happening - none of us want it to be happening. You need to learn why it's happening.

More importantly, imagine the Big Oil CEOs not making their revolting bonuses... and the public paying the ACTUAL cost of petroleum products.

Yes BASE this thread lacks some civility,lots of name calling,bitter disagreement.Human nature.
I consider it a large advancement over lets say war.Consider the fact of where my mother comes from in West Virginia,she had not to distant relatives that fought and killed each other in the civil war.
Partisan bickering and name calling pales in comparison.
While i totally agree it should not be about politics,what the hell is not anymore.

There should be a cow flatulence tax. Oh wait, it's in the works!

How about taxing us humans for breathing? After all, that CO2 is soooo evil!

Mchale, its a little more complicated than that i'm afraid. Seems the PDO slipped into the negative phase recently, this is a fairly recently discovered oscillation that is not well understood. Base fully expects the Arctic to be ice free during summer months within his sons lifetime-both are just guesses, in one case educated in the other not.

Ok, Ed so what does the paper say? Why do we have to play this game-oh very well. At minimum it states loudly and clearly that we lack coherent,correlating, direct measurement data sets of even the satellite era which corresponds to a prolonged period of unusually high solar activity. At the most it accounts for all global temperature swings observed from 7000 years ago to present.

Refute it maestro

Amazing how pervasive the slippery slope arguments are among the retards on the right.

ANY gun control = tyrannical government taking guns

Regulate CO2 emissions from large polluters = tax people for breathing

Unfukingbelievable that they get an equal vote.

Yep, they SHOULD be ignored. But when the Queen dipshit becomes the nominee for VPOTUS, you kind of have to start paying attention.

Oh, we'll be taxed for breathing, down the road. It's all CO2, isn't it?

What a perfect way to pay down the debt, and save the environment at the same time. Think about it!

And all guns will be confiscated.

Baby steps, guys. The sheeple would awake if prodded along too quickly.

Thank you. ^^^^

So, does it also speak to the "hopeful assumption" that a day will come where there are but only 500,000,000 inhabitants?

In 2008, Hansen wrote about “stabilizing” the climate :

Stabilizing atmospheric CO2 and climate requires that net CO2 emissions approach zero, because of the long lifetime of CO2 (he wrote)

arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/0804/0804.1126.pdf

Yet in 1999, he made it quite clear that past climate was not stable, and that there was little evidence to support that idea that the climate was becoming more unstable.

Lots of personal experience, and as an ED RN--

Hmm. I am an alcoholic. 13 years 13 days sober. Been doing F/T and P/T D&A Counseling w/combat vets etc for over 11 of those years. You don't "talk an alcoholic into quitting booze." You just share your personal alcoholic story, hope they listen, do not judge em, be there 24/7 and pray that they follow your lead. That is why a non-alcoholic (folks as yourself regardless profession) talks at an alcoholic and we don't listen. Folks as yourself are clueless as to why we drink/use.

Btw, Chief, I'm not mountainlion. Try to focus.

I am focusing MONOLITH. I answered the same question from LION yesterday/up thread. Now you try and focus as ED has admitted his employer is in fact direct component of the NNSA which oversees the stockpile of US WMD's by his own admission and he has partaken in that aspect of LLNS.

My employer is LLNS, Livermore Lab National Security LLC... The HEDS has relevance to both basic science and the stockpile stewardship program. I've worked on this project some for the last 4 years but have transitioned to other activities...... While I can talk about a lot of the things I do, I obviously cannot talk about some of it.

Kind of like being a full time butcher of hunted meat and having a life-time membership to PETA. Your being concerned with the future of mankind and GCC. Maybe that new component of fusion you are involved in. $$$$$$.



You can post all the papers you want ED & Chiloe etal. But as I shared earlier, all them papers are just another aspect of the growing multi-billion/trillion dollar GCC Industry. The propaganda machine spinning and turning. Capitalism at it's best I tell ya. Sneaky. Oh so sneaky.

Edit.

Until Humans cease proliferating at the rate they are currently doing so, this issue is not going away. Not one of you GCCers has even touched that so very important aspect of this issue. Mankind is running outta room and resources. Regardless what they may be. It has basically eating itself outta it's home.
