Baelz: That pesky ball of fire in the sky going into another Maunder Minimum for this cycle and predicted to continue into the next cycle will have everyone wishing these predictions were true. Sadly we're in for some nasty cooling over the next 10-15 years globally. I for one don't welcome the coming famine, but it will be nice to laugh at all these morons while I eat my ration of rice.

Jon Snow: That you grouped the two things together is unequivocal.
Jon Snow: I know which scenario sounds more plausible to me. In order to designate it as "sensationalism" and "cause for alarm", you're assigning motive and saying it was deliberate.Do you really think that's the case?

Lee451: I don't understand why only doom, defeat and despair can come from global warming. Could there be NO positive effects? Such as a longer growing season, less energy used in heating homes and a more moderate climate? If and when the glaciers melt, won't the land under them spring back up and mitigate the rising seas?

If and when the glaciers melt, won't the land under them spring back up and mitigate the rising seas?Short answer? Because good news doesn't get eyeballs on webpages, TV ads sold and research grants and social engineering programs funded. Okay, that's a bit cynical, but it's also true.BTW, nearly all of the readily accessible glacier water is already in the ocean, so both its contribution to sea level rise as well as the prospects for land rebound have largely already played out. For large-scale melting of Greenland and the Antarctic West to happen (and raise global sea level by more than another 2-3 feet), a credible mechanism has to be identified, which doesn't currently exist. Even IPCC (the most aggressive "credible" sea level rise alarmists) don't predict more than another 2' of rise, and that's at the top end of their range for the foreseeable future.
Gosling: And the hell of it is the doomsday preppers won't have an answer for it. Most of them are prepping for Mad Max, not Waterworld.
