ArcadianRefugee: More LIEberal claptrap. They're telling us that global warming makes things colder?! Ha!


Sadly, I know I'm going to hear a line of reasoning like this soon from my Townhall-loving dad, but he'll be serious about it.

As usual I'll explain how in other places they're experiencing record warmth right now, and that a local weather patter may be cold while the overall climate trend is warmer. I'll even explain how warming temps and warming oceans may causes changes in weather patterns, making some places warmer or colder then they're used to seeing. I'll remind him that we've even had one of the warmest years on record where we are, that the fall/winter up until very recently has been much warmer than usual and that last winter it was so warm I was even able to plant my garden an entire month earlier....

And all that explaining about how your cherry-picked personal experience of just when it's cold in one particular part of the year - in one particular place - doesn't invalidate global trends wil fall on deaf ears. Folks who won't accept the reality of climate change at this point, by and large aren't incapable of understanding... they have actually chosen NOT TO. They have made the choice to believe what they want to believe, regardless of any facts or logic to the contrary.

God dam GI Joes. I told them we needed the Weather Dominator, but did they listen? NOOOO! They just went in and shot the thing all to hell, blew up the remains. Then went home and jacked each other off in the shower in celebration.

It is currently -9 with a -32 wind chill here at 1 PM, with badly blowing snow/snow drifts. Schools all closed, including the colleges. Library, a lot of small "mom and pop type" businesses, the courthouse, most churches yesterday, some medical offices, the city bus, and the garbage men are all closed today. The police are saying don't be on the road unless you have to, but heaven forbid a large retail store close for a day! I understand people such as police and fire and medical persons and prison guards and such all have to work, but they are needed vital people. Fast food and retail workers aren't vital, are paid less, are more likely to be punished for calling in.

Welp, time to get ready for work!

LOL.  First it was global warming, and when that was disproved it went to climate change.  Climate change.  Really?  Well isn't that a handy little moniker?  The freakin' climate has been changing for billions of years, duh.  I also like the whole "climate is not the same as weather argument" the tree-huggers constantly drag out ... As if climate has nothing whatsoever to do with weather.  What's it have to do with if not weather?

The last three weeks have been extraordinary warm here in Europe. The daily minimums are a few degrees above freezing, and the forecasts say it is getting even warmer. I haven't even seen ice this winter, except in the freezer and in my glass.

The high today in Raleigh was 61 degrees. Unfortunately, that was around 7:00 this morning; it's been spiralling downward ever since, headed to somewhere around 8 degrees tonight. That will be the coldest here in at least 14 years; throw in a 15 mph wind on top of that and tomorrow morning will be so cold many of the local school systems  have delayed opening for 2 hours.

You're the third guy on Fark in less than a week to obstinately insist this.

What is going on? Is there some sort of new talking point on all the right-wing hive-mind blogs out there to repeatedly bleat "Climatology is not a science" or something? Was it said on Fox News and you all loved it so much because it means you didn't have to think about it at all but just parrot it at every opportunity? This is right up there with "Atheism is a religion" and "Evolution killed millions of people" on the scale of blanket statements so ostensibly stupid that they're not even wrong.

I would really like to know how this echo-chamber level rhetoric reaches critical mass like this. Where do you get it from? How does a meme like this proliferate in very anti-scientific circles and why do you always run with it instead of stop yourself and think critically about it like any decent human being should?

Seriously, did you get it from Conservapedia? Why would you trust an uneducated source like that instead of actual people doing the actual work in the actual field?

Seriously, did you get it from Conservapedia? Why would you trust an uneducated source like that instead of actual people doing the actual work in the actual field?


No. I'm just not interested in buying into the endless mindless feed of bullsh*t that has produced the zealots of GW. GW proponents are like the Taliban. Either you believe, without question that the world is getting warmer because of fossil fuels. Or. You're a heretic that deserves to be burnt at the stake.

There's endless, and I do mean endless arguments on Fark where the sides of have become so polarized in their beliefs there isn't discussion on the subject. It's pointless and a waste of time to even give the matter a second thought.

Some infants have their umbilical cord connection surgically closed due to infection. I knew a guy who had no belly button because of this, we used to joke that he was a clone and not really human.

Sadly, I know I'm going to hear a line of reasoning like this soon from my Townhall-loving dad, but he'll be serious about it.

As usual I'll explain how in other places they're experiencing record warmth right now, and that a local weather patter may be cold while the overall climate trend is warmer. I'll even explain how warming temps and warming oceans may causes changes in weather patterns, making some places warmer or colder then they're used to seeing. I'll remind him that we've even had one of the warmest years on record where we are, that the fall/winter up until very recently has been much warmer than usual and that last winter it was so warm I was even able to plant my garden an entire month earlier....

And all that explaining about how your cherry-picked personal experience of just when it's cold in one particular part of the year - in one particular place - doesn't invalidate global trends wil fall on deaf ears. Folks who won't accept the reality of climate change at this point, by and large aren't incapable of understanding... they have actually chosen NOT TO. They have made the choice to believe what they want to believe, regardless of any facts or logic to the contrary.


Yeah, speaking of facts- how about that one about the global temperatures that have not risen for about 20 years now. Oh that's right...pretend that fact doesn't exist so it doesn't get in the way of all the GW/CC "facts" that you mix in with all of your smarter than everyone else "scientific" chatter.

Global Warming/Climate Change was invented for 2 things: to secure votes for Liberal politicians, and to bring in boatloads of cash for environmentalists.Nothing else. Except the jig is up, and the rest of the world is on to the scam. Regardless of how much "intellectual superiority" you throw out there, you've all been exposed.

I'd hazard a guess that 99.931% of the denialists get by on sneers, innuendo, and unsupported implication.

LOL.  First it was global warming, and when that was disproved it went to climate change.  Climate change.  Really?  Well isn't that a handy little moniker?  The freakin' climate has been changing for billions of years, duh.  I also like the whole "climate is not the same as weather argument" the tree-huggers constantly drag out ... As if climate has nothing whatsoever to do with weather.  What's it have to do with if not weather?

That's actually what a scientific theory does equal until a better theory, or more often a more complete theory, explains the observed data better or disproves the original theory outright.  Such as for evolution, it's still the theory of evolution, but it's the most complete explanation that we have for the observed data, the observed data being stuff like the fossil record.

Just asserting this doesn't make it true. Please post evidence that what you're saying is correct. And by evidence, I mean empirical research published in reputable journals and respectable literature supported and critiqued by the scientific community. Studies -- not blogs or graphs.

I would love to know what scientific studies you get all these counter-claims from. Like that "no temp increase in 20+ years" thing. That's been mentioned over and over again in this very thread, and I've seen it in other threads, but no one ever sources the claim. Where did it come from?

3StratMan: Your Global Warming research ship that got caught in all that ice was an awesome episode to your show, by the way


I like this one.  It isn't that the vessel was under way during the warmest part of the year, or that they navigated into the remains of a very, very large portion of a glacier that broke off into the ocean several years ago; it's that it became trapped in ice while investigating "global warming."

So, let's discuss this.  According to numerous reports, the Captain knew of the inclement weather and also of the possibility that the weather would blow pack-ice into their path.  Still, disregarding various warnings, the tourists departed on a scheduled inland treck.  The treck got off "several hours" late according to multiple sources, and one quotes the Captain as "becoming rather definite late in the afternoon that we needed to get everyone back on board ASAP because of the coming weather and the ice closing in."Despite the warnings given, the members of the trip were still numerous hours late returning to the vessel, and by the time they had returned, the pack-ice had blown in.

Second, the Antarctic is deadly dangerous in the best of conditions.  Weather patterns can change abruptly and drastically, stranding even the most well-prepared expedition.  On top of the general chaotic tendencies of Antarctic weather, the expedition was visiting Eastern Antarctica, where the weather can be even more tumultuous.  The average coastal high temperature for January is below freezing, so even under the best situations ice will be present and persistent.  Add to that the blizzard that was forcast for the region during the holiday season, and any reasonable person could be expected to understand that difficulties could arise.

Third, the ice flows and pack-ice are poorly mapped, mostly because of the treacherous conditions that present themselves year-round, but also because they can change drastically from hour to hour.

To conclude:
1: Operator Error
2: Antarctic adventures will be interrupted by inclement weather.
3: There's a whole lot of ice in the ocean around Antarctica.

Compiled evidence points to cooling, which could be a sign that partivulates in pollution (volcanic and man made) are reducing sun light faster than green house gases are trapping it.

This is not a study, this is a blog linking to another blog which talks about a Senate hearing on the subject.

I don't think you want to hedge all your bets on John Christy's work, btw. He does think AGW is happening and his work proves that, he just doesn't like it when others (especially the media) get carried away with the hyperbole. That's not the fault of climate scientists (which earlier was asserted aren't real scientists), that's the fault of our sensationalism-driven culture and the dire lack of scientific literacy and education.

Okay, now don't go away because I want to talk about this one. This is a very interesting study indeed, but I'm not really interested in the science, but rather you.

The big question I want answered is: Why do you trust THIS particular study, with rockhard, absolute, 100% unwavering certainty, and not any of the other studies that claim any other thing? What is it about this particular paper that makes it more valid than any other? And how did you reach that determination?

Obviously you're not a scientist. But you're a skeptic, and that's good, because science should never be taken at face value. You seem to be a smart guy, and you're not the paranoid type who rejects all science, so you do concede at some level to experts who study these things at a far greater extent than you do. Now, what methodology do you use to decide which science is correct and which isn't? To the layman, it's technically all believable, because they don't have the understanding to make a qualified judgment (and neither do you, and neither do I for that matter). So which do you choose is right or wrong? And are you aware of your inherent bias in accepting the flimsiest of things as true because you want them to be and rejecting dead solid data as false because it doesn't fit your preconceived prejudices?

And if you don't think you do that, then by all means divulge: How do you know which studies are true? What parameters do you use to make that (uneducated) verification?

I'm not 100% sure of these findings but I am 100% sure that GW fear mongering is bull crap.  First I would say observation and common sense are driving my skepticism of the GW crew.  Observations like recorded temperatures not increasing as expected in the time period as they should have if gh gases were wreaking so much havoc on our environment.  Other observations that evidence by scientists bucking GW has been excluded from discussion by the GW community, who I think are enamored by the attention (especially political) the discussion is drawing versus pragmatic ruling out or in new/updated information.  Common sense and statistics say to me we haven't scientifically/accurately recorded evidence for a long enough period of time from a geologic perspective to do thorough predictions one way or another at this point - but any GW nut will tell you we are in eminent danger of a heatpocalypse tomorrow if we burn one more candle.  Ice cores have yielded data both ways, for instance that during times of high CO2 levels, many times higher than now, there was also an ice age - an environment not expected in a green house atmosphere?

Common sense also says to me, we need to produce energy and food in a way that does not create poisonous pollution and by products and we do this by reinvesting scientific studies into energy production and food production technologies instead of wasting time with investing in government regulations/punishment for existing fossil fuel technologies.  Really you cant let business or government be in control of this work, it needs to be controlled by independent scientific organizations seeking to better our world through innovation, not indoctrination into some Pythagorean cult chanting "reduce your carbon footprint".  Once science has had a chance to figure out how to produce clean energy efficiently and scalable for the entire world to use, then bring in the guberments to tell the corporations to make a change to the new technology or get fined out of existence.

We sit on top of 65,000,000,000 square miles molten magma for God's sake, maybe we could somehow harness that heat to produce steam and run turbines for limitless electricity?

Common sense is not evidence. It is not facts, it is not truth, it is not practical application. It is not beset by any physical dimensions, it has no predictive power, it is not based on any rules or laws of logic, reason or investigative inquiry, it is not prescriptive or based on any model of actual reality. In short, common sense is Colbert's truthiness taken to myopic extremes. It is not science or reason.

Common sense is completely worthless. It is a copout phrase people use to think that they are rationally deducing a solution from a set of clues, but they really aren't. What you really have is an emotional bias against the political left and you have developed a kneejerk presuppositionalist stance that all leftist issues must be politically annihilated and instead of actually doing some critical thinking you have let the "common sense" of your presuppositional logic do all the thinking for you.

Y'know, Aristotle used common sense to assert all kinds of truths, and he was wrong about nearly every single one of them.

In short: What you are doing is bluff, bluster and bullshiat. You are lying to yourself and to reality and you are using your own uninformed, ignorant assumptions define what you think is going on and then you go out and seek only those facts that validate those assumptions. That's what Creationists do.

Now, I don't really care that you do that. I just hope you realize that that's what you do.

In short, you are so afraid that you are wrong about GW that you are attacking a person and counterpoint that has been supported by several articles and papers.  Instead reconcile the point against the theory with facts and figures.

"The global temperature standstill shows that climate models are diverging from observations," says David Whitehouse of the Global Warming Policy Foundation.  "If we have not passed it already, we are on the threshold of global observations becoming incompatible with the consensus theory of climate change," he says.  Whitehouse argues that whatever has happened to make temperatures remain constant requires an explanation because the pause in temperature rise has occurred despite a sharp increase in global carbon emissions.

FarkQued: says David Whitehouse of the Global Warming Policy Foundation.


David Whitehouse = not a climate scientist
Global Warming Policy Foundation. = not a research institution but a policy (propaganda) institution with hidden funding.

Actually, I'm actually fairly ambivalent about the science on GW in general (but I do lean slightly in the "yeah it's happening" camp). I'm more interested in why you think the science is wrong when you rely on the science to inform your opinion on why the science is wrong. Creationists do the same thing when they use biological studies to disprove evolution.

At some point you had to make a decision on which science is correct and which science is wrong, and given that you have not the qualifications or the education to make such a judgment call, you decided that your political presuppositions can make your decisions for you.

What you are doing is not critical thinking. It is partisan hackery.

If you would wish to stop doing this, then I recommend you first clear your head of all biases. And then -- and this is the most important part -- you must apply the same level of skepticism and scrutiny to everything you come across.
