Pocket_Fisherman: As one of the few people who post here with actual relevant degrees in the subject, I am not a climate change denier.  That very term though is meant to hide the argument.  Climate change happens and is happening.

What I think is overstated is mans effect on the climate.  Global warming doesn't work anymore so now its "climate change".


What's this?  A voice of reason on fark?  Say it ain't so.  Here's my take;   ANYBODY who thinks humanity can play a major role in what happens on earth is a RETAR .... Errr. Moron. Moron's still OK, right?  As you stated; First it was global warming, then they backed off that and started calling it 'climate change.' Well guess what? This planet had gone through many warming/cooling cycles billions of years before man arrived, and will continue to do so long after we're gone. The very idea that some people think humanity could have ANY effect on the planet itself, is pompous at best, and moronic at worst.

Really?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon-14#Formation_during_nuclear_test s

"The above-ground nuclear tests that occurred in several countries between 1955 and 1980 (see nuclear test list) dramatically increased the amount of carbon-14 in the atmosphere and subsequently in the biosphere; after the tests ended, the atmospheric concentration of the isotope began to decrease.
One side-effect of the change in atmospheric carbon-14 is that this has enabled some options for determining the birth year of an individual, in particular, the amount of carbon-14 in tooth enamel,[19][20] or the carbon-14 concentration in the lens of the eye.[21]"

No, "they" didn't.  See above.  The scientific community has been using "climate change" since at least the 1960s.

Why would an argument this stupid occur twice in the same thread?  Why would two of them?  Do you guys have a script?

OK.  You're teh smart, we're teh stupid.  Once again.  Anybody who doesn't fall in line with teh liberal fark-think must be teh ridiculed.  Yeah.  And the conservatives are the ones wearing the jack boots.

That would have an effect on HUMANITY, jackass.  Not on the planet.  The earth will continue to exist whether we're here or not.

So you're saying the increase in the amount of carbon 14 ONLY affected humanity?

Wow....  and I'm the egotistical one for wanting to live with a little less pollution floating around....

I am still waiting for them to change the nomenclature such that what the Chicken Littles contend is completely unmeasurable, and therefore unfalsifiable.

Oh wait...that was 15 years ago.

Apparently on their heads, and their cutting off the circulation.

If you don't want to be criticized for saying incredibly stupid things, you could always stop saying them.

Hi. Serious question, if you don't mind giving an honest answer.

What do planetary energy balance, radiative transfer, or any other relevant aspects of physics and chemistry have to do with "liberal fark-think"?

Thanks.
