cgraves67: I blame Canada for this.


Yesterday, CNN said something like, "Normally, we blame Canada when this happens, but they are suffering too" then cut to a news story about Canada being cold.

yakmans_dad: styckx: Summoner101: It's also 34 in Anchorage, so once again, weather does not equal climate

That's fantastic... But no one claimed it did.. Put away the smug..

Really? Then lots implied it did.

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?

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.

I think I owe a big thank you to all you North-American folks for being on the sucking end this winter! Keep up the good job!

In Fredericksburg the temp tonight is supposed to be 4F. This morning it was 48F


It was like 60 yesterday and like -2 today a state to your southwest.

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.

/so they will pick up kids around 8:00
//temp at that time will be about 11

No, it's the term for "here is data that supports the theory". Allow me to use it in a sentence: Your post suggests that you're barely literate. See? It's a good word, it works fine.

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?

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.

mongbiohazard: 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.


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. But keep having fun with it, Chicken Little. We're all quite amused with what now has the looks of a great comedy routine. Your Global Warming research ship that got caught in all that ice was an awesome episode to your show, by the way.

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 because the scientific illiterate like to use "theory" as a pejorative only helps call them out as scientifically illiterate.
