Re: Hey. WHERE'S THE GLOBAL WARMING?

Hahaha! Yeah, those scientists are pretty dumb. They'd never think of the thermometer thing! We should replace them with farmers.  Smiley Wink

Re: Hey. WHERE'S THE GLOBAL WARMING?

Statement on climate change from 18 scientific associations

"Observations throughout the world make it clear that climate change is occurring, and rigorous scientific research demonstrates that the greenhouse gases emitted by human activities are the primary driver." (2009)2

  • AAAS emblem

    American Association for the Advancement of Science

    "The scientific evidence is clear: global climate change caused by human activities is occurring now, and it is a growing threat to society." (2006)3

  • ACS emblem

    American Chemical Society

    "Comprehensive scientific assessments of our current and potential future climates clearly indicate that climate change is real, largely attributable to emissions from human activities, and potentially a very serious problem." (2004)4

  • AGU emblem

    American Geophysical Union

    "Human‐induced climate change requires urgent action. Humanity is the major influence on the global climate change observed over the past 50 years. Rapid societal responses can significantly lessen negative outcomes." (Adopted 2003, revised and reaffirmed 2007, 2012, 2013)5

  • AMA emblem

    American Medical Association

    "Our AMA ... supports the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s fourth assessment report and concurs with the scientific consensus that the Earth is undergoing adverse global climate change and that anthropogenic contributions are significant." (2013)6

  • AMS emblem

    American Meteorological Society

    "It is clear from extensive scientific evidence that the dominant cause of the rapid change in climate of the past half century is human-induced increases in the amount of atmospheric greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide (CO2), chlorofluorocarbons, methane, and nitrous oxide." (2012)7

  • APS emblem

    American Physical Society

    "The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring. If no mitigating actions are taken, significant disruptions in the Earth’s physical and ecological systems, social systems, security and human health are likely to occur. We must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases beginning now." (2007)8

  • GSA emblem

    The Geological Society of America

    "The Geological Society of America (GSA) concurs with assessments by the National Academies of Science (2005), the National Research Council (2006), and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2007) that global climate has warmed and that human activities (mainly greenhouse‐gas emissions) account for most of the warming since the middle 1900s." (2006; revised 2010)9

 

SCIENCE ACADEMIES


  • International academies: Joint statement

    "Climate change is real. There will always be uncertainty in understanding a system as complex as the world’s climate. However there is now strong evidence that significant global warming is occurring. The evidence comes from direct measurements of rising surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures and from phenomena such as increases in average global sea levels, retreating glaciers, and changes to many physical and biological systems. It is likely that most of the warming in recent decades can be attributed to human activities (IPCC 2001)." (2005, 11 international science academies)10

  • USNAS emblem

    U.S. National Academy of Sciences

    "The scientific understanding of climate change is now sufficiently clear to justify taking steps to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere." (2005

Re: Hey. WHERE'S THE GLOBAL WARMING?

Funding for climate scientists as the basis of some global conspiracy?  LOL.  As if funding for climate science compares to the profits of the fossil fuel companies.  Add in the subsidies, and there are orders of magnitude in the difference between the two.

Re: Hey. WHERE'S THE GLOBAL WARMING?

Climate change and man-made global warming are very different subjects.  I believe without a doubt that climate change is happening and has always happened. Now, man-made global warming fraud is very simple to understand. A simple way to control people, grow the size of government, increased taxes, and allow some, unearned income thru increased regulations. BRING IT ON, more CO2 for the plants to survive.

Re: Hey. WHERE'S THE GLOBAL WARMING?

This might be getting a little off topic,but I always wondered why so many of the environmentalists had beachfront homes.If they really thought they would be under water in a few years why not buy something that is currently 100 feet above sea level for a fraction of the cost and just wait a little.

 

If the government was truly worried wouldn't they ban cities like Miami,New Orleans and New York City from rebuilding on the waters edge every time a hurricane hits,instead of throwing billions of tax dollars to rebuild something that could look like Venice in a few years.

 

Several years ago a developer bought a barrier island on the east coast and started building vacation homes there.No one had ever built there because of potential storm loss because of  storm surges,but when everything got washed away the government gave him a grant to redevelop.,,tax dollars at work

I'd mark yours as a solution ....

.... but i can't find the button to do this !!!!!

 

You said, "Now, man-made global warming fraud is very simple to understand." Uh huh

 

I believe you hit the nail right smack on the head !!!  It's easier to understand, and it's very convenient. End of discussion.

 

For some, no doubt. Everything else is harder to understand, and maybe VERY inconvenient. If it's harder to understand it's inconvenient by definition. The harder to understand and the more inconvenient the more unlikely to be true? Hmmmmm. The whole issue makes more sense to me now than before I read your post. Thanks.

Re: Hey. WHERE'S THE GLOBAL WARMING?

Your message takes the focus of the true nature of the problem.  No, it isn't chemtrails, or Haarp, or deliberate weather modification by the military.  It's fossil fuel driven climate change and greenhouse gases that is the concern. 

 

Many here should watch this lecture titled "Climate Change and Global Food Security" with the link below. Dr. David Battisti is Professor of Atmospheric Sciences and Director of the Joint Institute for Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean at the University of Washington. This lecture explores the likely impact of climate change and volatility on food production and availability in the foreseeable future. 

 

Things are going to get increasingly wonky, and farmers who are not aware or prepared will be out of business.  Crop insurance can only last so long before it too fails.

And, while watching, keep in mind that scientists have consistently under called the timing and scale of the impacts to date.  That's because they use conservative assumptions, such as using a rosy emission scenario rather than our actual pathway.
