good.
If someone has some good honest science that suggest there is no global warming, or that it is not driven by man, then post that s science.  If you're "just asking questions" that have all be answered, then go stand in the corner with the truthers.

A content editor on Reddit's science forum wrote Monday that the site has banned climate-change skeptics, and asks why more news outlets haven't done the same.

The peer reviewed journals won't publish any papers on the "other side" of global warming, mostly because there aren't any.
 
2013-12-18 10:22:52 PM
I don't see a problem here.

And WTF is "Big Green"?? Is that like a giant sized container of Ecto Cooler that was never released? I don't think there's a consortium of green energy companies making plans in shadowy rooms.

Even the most hardcore global warming proponents can't explain why there hasn't been any increase in global temperatures for the past 17 years.

So, there's that...

I'm sure that will convince the deniers that global warming is real.

and even if it were true,the graphs also show a decline in the 40s and level period in the 60s and in the last half of the 80s.  So 17 years is a small sample from the larger picture. But NFA was just asking questions like a good little denier, right?

Again, this is not true:

www.columbia.edu

This graph makes clear that global warming is continuing - it did not stop in 1998. The year 1998 was remarkably warm relative to the underlying trend line (see updated Figure 12 of "Storms"), in association with the El Nino" of the century (updated Figure 13). But the underlying global temperature has continued to rise, despite the fact that solar irradiance for the past few years has been stuck in the deepest solar minimum in the period of satellite data (updated Figure 11).

This right here is the problem. The whole "hasn't been any increase in global temperatures" has been very thoroughly discussed. But they don't care, because that's not what they are after.

"Allen then expressed surprise that removing an entire faction of commenters "resulted in a change in the culture within the comments. Where once there were personal insults and bitter accusations, there is now discussion of the relevant aspects of the research."
"While we won't claim /r/science is perfect, users seem happy with the changes made," Allen said.

God I would love a political forum without the farking trolls. Just ban anybody who posts stupid, easily debunked bullshiat over and over. Take em all out - the climate change deniers, the BSABSVRs, the Benghazi idiots.. All of them. I would spend way more time here if I could have an actual conversation with sincere people - regardless of their political point of view.

I remember the usenet days when forums were completely unmoderated and I understand that moderating forums takes work, but it seems like it would be worth it to have a quality political forum that might actually *gasp* help people become more informed about current events.

The real problem with the trolls is that they make a forum boring. Sure you get a lot of page clicks but its the same 10 people over and over. I've been on this site a long time now and I check into the poli forum during an election but otherwise - whats the point?

It's so cute that you think this article supports your opinion, I almost want to pinch your rosy denier cheeks.

FTA:
"measurements of ocean temperatures, which show that warmer temperatures are spreading into the deep abyss. According to the BBC, the draft IPCC report suggests that the oceans have been absorbing more heat than expected, in effect insulating global surface temperatures from greater change."

"In his AGU talk, Alley demonstrated how the argument that global warming has stopped could have been made many times over the past half-century. There have been many intervals of 5, 10, or even 20 years in which the global average temperature has stalled-but inevitably the long-term warming has resumed."

First off, reddit hurts my eyes, thus I try to avoid it, and secondly of course the climate is changing, it always changes, but no I'm not getting cute, I mean it's changed and is continuing to change.

If I had to fight a climate change denier, I'd ask them if the Northwest passage "myth" is still a myth.

As to the causes and solutions, if any, I'd rather keep my mouth shut on that for now.

I'll be honest here. I don't have kids. I don't really care all that much about the environment. I mean, I care in a 'gee that's a bummer about that cute animal that's not around anymore' but it's a pretty apathetic 'caring'. I'm not going around burning hydrocarbons willy nilly mind you, I just don't really care all that much and make no real effort on that front at all.

I'll be dead by the time the oceans are out of fish. G'luck with all that rest of humanity.

I'm all for interesting discussions on the accuracy of global climate models and suchnot.  Those can be interesting and informative.

But we've all heard the climate change deniers, and their arguments are old.  It's spam.  It may be spam that sells ideas, and not products, but it's still spam, and it doesn't help forums.
