HotIgneous Intruder: jack21221: 2) The area of the Earth covered by contrails is tiny and is not nearly enough to change the albedo of the Earth by any meaningful amount.Contrails do affect temperature.
Cyclometh: Holy farking dogshiat, son... just look at how stupid you are!
JohnnyC: NobleHam: For one, the lagging of ocean temperatures behind land temperatures which is suggestive of measurement inaccuracies as opposed to any sort of greenhouse gas effect.Compared to a land surface subject to the same heating, an ocean surface shouldA. have a larger seasonal temperature rangeB. have a higher summer temperatureC. have a lower winter temperatureD. have a seasonal temperature cycle lagging behind the land's seasonal temperature cycleTry your luck :)
viscountalpha: Arguing about global warming/cooling it doesn't change it and humans in general are egotistical to believe we have that much impact on our environment.We get 1/1,000,000 of the suns energy. Say that fluctuates to a miniscule degree. OMG, GLOBAL WARMING! ITS ALL OUR FAULT!/i can't wait until this world burns...
GAT_00: It is utterly impossible for that to happen if global temperatures were not increasing.
THE GREAT NAME: That MWP happened tells us that that the temerpature can rise for a number of years without the need to attribute a human cause.
MarkEC: Farking Canuck: More than one place on the globe is still not global. If I recall correctly, these papers suggested that there were some temperature readings in the Antarctic that corresponded with the MWP. This is a far cry from being a global effect.The Godfather of AGW, Michael Mann believes the MWP was initiated by increased solar activity and decreased volcanic activity. If that ain't global the nothing is global.
MarkEC: I see 3 possibilities in what's happening with the climate.1. The "warmists" are correct and CO2 is really a major driving force. The fact that the temperature hasn't been climbing for the last 16 years indicates that natural forces that are beyond our understanding are equaling out that increase. If it wasn't for all that CO2 we've dumped into the air we would be at the precipice of a new ice age.2. The "deniers" are correct and CO2 is only a minor player and natural forces are gonna do what they're gonna do regardless of how much CO2 we put in the air.3. The truth is somewhere in the middle. We will continue improving technology that will allow us to wean ourselves off of fossil over the coming decades, learn more about the climate and how to avoid global climate catastrophes, and life will go on.
doglover: LIBERAL LIES! MOAR OIL!
Kriggerel: What I find so very telling is how the language describing those, who question the Global Warming orthodoxy has shifted over the past number of months.I specifically refer to the way that the phrase "Climate Change Skeptic" has been replaced by "Climate Change Denier", as denier always has the negative cachet associated with "Holocaust Denier".
david_gaithersburg: A new tax cut can fix this!
NobleHam: I've always found that when I'm mocked and not challenged it usually means I'm right.
zombiejesusnightmare: NobleHam: log_jammin: NobleHam: , just people who like to jump on the "science" bandwagon regardless of their actual foundation in science.the science bandwagon? wow."'Science' bandwagon" not "science bandwagon." My point is their conclusion isn't scientific, they just support it to seem like they're on the rational side because they're told that people who actually ARE scientists all agree on it, even when that's not true.You're adorable.
sendtodave: Jesda: Liberals have a hard-on for "climate change" because it gives them an excuse to control the means of production.And libertarian-bent conservatives still don't understand how to deal with externalities.Hint: It rhymes with "beg two Haitians."
Bontesla: david_gaithersburg: Climate change, yeah, its been changing since day 1. Notice how the term "global warming" was tossed once it was debunked? Link "Climate change" by its very nature can never be debunked, perpetual funding!!!!!Pecking away at the keyboard in your parents' basement does not constitute debunking in any scientific regard.
GAT_00: The last time there was a global month of below average temperatures was February 1985. Everyone born after that month has never experienced a month of below average global temperatures.
log_jammin: david_gaithersburg: Nah, I'll stick with scientific research instead of a 20 freaking minute Youtube clip. But thanks for sticking your head in the sand.your graph isn't "scientific research". it's just another doctored graph from a blogger.
Kriggerel: I specifically refer to the way that the phrase "Climate Change Skeptic" has been replaced by "Climate Change Denier", as denier always has the negative cachet associated with "Holocaust Denier".
