viscountalpha: What proof do you have to substantiate your claim? Oh that's right. You have farking NOTHING.


Basic math? Basic science? I'm not here to do your homework for you.

http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/volcanowatch/archive/2007/07_02_15.html (Because while 200 million tonnes of CO2 is large, the global fossil fuel CO2 emissions for 2003 tipped the scales at 26.8 billion tonnes. Thus, not only does volcanic CO2 not dwarf that of human activity, it actually comprises less than 1 percent of that value.)

http://cdiac.ornl.gov/trends/emis/overview_2006.html (The 2007 global fossil-fuel carbon emission estimate, 8365 million metric tons of carbon, represents an all-time high and a 1.7% increase from 2006.)

http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/hazards/gas/index.php (Volcanoes release more than 130 million tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere every year.)



fark off. If that's not good enough for you you can hunt down the rest yourself.

History is going to regard global warming deniers alarmists with the same consideration they give to flat Earthers Y2K and germ theory 2012 skeptics believers.

FTFY


Ummm, except there is literally mountains of scientific evidence in favor of Climate Change. Well, unless you're a believer in the largest conspiracy theory of all time being perpetrated planet wide involving 10 of thousands of intentionally dishonest and underpaid scientists who have virtually nothing to gain.

2012 is BS, Y2K wasn't exactly BS, but it certainly doesn't deserve the elevation your giving it here, plus, you didn't see a whole shiat ton of anti-science simpletons denying there was a problem. I'm an I.T. guy of 20 years, I went around, rooted out the problems and fixed them, not screaming global conspiracy while pumping a thumb up my arse.

RedVentrue: Y2K


You know why Y2K never affected anyone? Mainly because people worked their asses of for several years before hand to prevent any problems.

There was no issue because it was prevented before it could hit. See any parallel to climate change there? Maybe if we do something to prevent it now, then in 20 years you can happily sit there and say "i don't know what all the fuss was about".

/or you know, do sod all about it.
//i know which one I'd prefer.

Headline: "Animals are already dissolving in Southern Ocean"
Article: "...found under an electron microscope that the outer layers of their hard shells bore signs of unusual corrosion."


EVERYBODY PANIC!!

There is a subtle, but really f'ing important, difference between "dissolving" and sub-microscopic "signs of unusual corrosion".

It's also one hell of a leap to go from, "Patches of [aragonite] undersaturation have already been seen" to, "By 2050, there will be a severe shortage of aragonite in much of the ocean."

Junk science. The published research itself shows that not only is it rife with errors but that the experiments were done in artificial conditions in an aquarium. Images provided show results.

How about giant filters that remove the CO2 from the air? Filters on factory and power plant smokestacks? Filters for sea water? It's amazing how much we talk about the problem, but not about any solutions.
