If they would just switch back from Metric to Imperial, it would be about 32 degrees warmer.

thursdaypostal: Kazan: thursdaypostal: Global warming can cause cold temperatures in the same way that a speeding car can cause sudden deceleration.

So that is a "i don't know how this works and i don't believe it so i'm going to make an absurd sounding statement and try to portray it as analogy".

Convection ... how does that shiat work?
Temperature flow, you can't explain that!

What? I was saying like going to fast can lead to a crash, temperatures too high can lead to a crash.

ok good, so it ISN'T what i thought it was.

johnperkins: Wearing a layman hat, they sound like this-

Global warming- the world is getting hotter.

Climate change- the world isn't getting hotter where you are? Okay, so it's 'climate change' now. Gets hotter? Climate change. Gets colder? Climate change.

Climate instability- any change at all means the world's going to end in the next 10 years.

i know plenty of laymen who understand what this terms mean just fine. and STILL nobody but you has ever used the third one.

johnperkins: There are groups of scientists on each side, saying the other side's scientists are idiots.

no.. there are not. the only "scientists" that say AGW isn't happening are pretty much on the payrolls of the oil and coal industries. this sense of controversy you have is false.

johnperkins: If someone tells me cheese is now dangerous because it has been found to undergo spontaneous fusion, I probably won't believe them. If dairies world wide start to detonate with the appropriate radiation signature, then I would take it seriously.

The problem is the signal to noise ratio or, in this case, the message to BS ratio. The ratio is too low for me right now.

that's because you've made up your mind, and it doesn't matter how many mountains of evidence the scientists have to support it.. it will never be enough for you

you're suffering from the Dunning-Kruger and Backfire effects. That is to say: you are more confident in your knowledge then you have right to be, and evidence that contradicts your predetermined [biased] position just serves to make you dig in your heals more.

starsrift: styckx: All of you on soap boxes know the whole Gulf Stream and Europe thing is a myth right?

Wait, what?

Are you denying that the measured ocean current that was discovered by the early European explorers of America does not actually exist despite evidence of its existence to the contrary, or are you denying that convection works(and thusly the laws of Thermodynamics)?

No, the part about Europe freezing over if the Gulf stream got farked

Bring back The Frost Fair on The Thames.

What's it been? Three... four centuries?

You read it here folks. There's no Gulf Sream, or Europe for that matter.

johnperkins: First it warming.

Then it was...climate change.

Then it was...climate instability.

The more weasel-y the words, the more trouble I have taking any of it seriously.

It's all of the above. The planet on average is warming, but it is not doing so uniformly. Local climates may change in either direction, warming faster than the average (e.g. the arctic) or cooling due to shifts in winds or ocean currents.

George Carlin summed it up quite nicely. "The planet is fine. The people are farked."

DemDave: FTFA: Temperatures could fall to as low as minus 3°c (27°f) in some places, with snow already falling in the Pennines.

27 degrees? Really? Grow a pair, you ninnies.

Is that even a real temperature? It dropped down to the low 50s the other night. I brought in my outdoor thermometer so it wouldn't get too cold.

I remember reading 20 some odd years ago that climate change might disrupt oceanic currents possibly causing another mini ice age in Europe. So, cool tag?

Global Climate Change is the perfect scam. It cannot be proved false. Too warm? Global Climate Change. Too Cold? Global Climate Change. Inconvenient climate? Oh, that's just weather, dummy!

Apparently, a large enough influx of fresh water into the North Atlantic due to melting ice could potentially put a complete halt to the Gulf Stream. If that happens the, ironically, global warming could trigger an ice age.

cretinbob: The Gulf Stream, how does it farking work?

Exactly. Get ready for more of this as melting ice caps fark with the ocean currents.
