  • Why are there so many people that believe that there is no proven relationship between CO2 emissions and Global Warming?

    The fact that some Republicans still don’t believe that humans are causing Global Warming is puzzling. I think that it is comparable to the lack of belief in evolution and the belief that the Earth is flat. Why do people (that have access to the same information that I do) prefer to say that climate change is not... show more
    The fact that some Republicans still don’t believe that humans are causing Global Warming is puzzling. I think that it is comparable to the lack of belief in evolution and the belief that the Earth is flat. Why do people (that have access to the same information that I do) prefer to say that climate change is not happening (or the various other strange hypotheses) when they could just as well say that the Global Warming that is occurring is not a problem (which would solve their apparent aversion to government intervention)? This fact makes me second-guess my own conclusion on the subject. Is it a problem with my conclusion? (linear warming, warming is beneficial to humans) If so, what is it? Is there a psychological issue or bias? I’m sure that few are psychologists in this section, but I’m also sure that many of the activists here have an opinion on the motive of their adversaries.

  • What is the motive of the large population of people that advocate for government intervention on climate change?

    If it is not a “moral” reason, then what is it? I have heard the arguments that there are leftists that want redistribution of wealth and that scientists just want to keep their jobs, but this is a massive scale we are talking about here.

    If it is not a “moral” reason, then what is it? I have heard the arguments that there are leftists that want redistribution of wealth and that scientists just want to keep their jobs, but this is a massive scale we are talking about here. It just seems like an insane conspiracy theory to conclude that this kind of malevolent communication is going on behind the scenes, yet remains mostly unobserved by the general public. I am aware of the IPCC email scandal, but I am having a hard time believing that was anything more than trying to cover up the current hiatus in the warming trend.

  • Why do people still believe global warming is still happening?

    Best answer: Whether it is happening or not isn't the standard IMO. The standard is whether it is significant, and or harmful. Global warming is a meaningless term unless it is defined. It could be just the warming from human emissions of CO2, and that is typical of what is supposed to mean. Alarmists like to have it... show more
    Best answer: Whether it is happening or not isn't the standard IMO. The standard is whether it is significant, and or harmful. Global warming is a meaningless term unless it is defined. It could be just the warming from human emissions of CO2, and that is typical of what is supposed to mean. Alarmists like to have it mean any warming or any cooling or anything. Humans are certainly causing some changes. I suspect we are bumping up the temperature from what it would have been already. It was already in a warming trend for a few hundred years and maybe we added to that. It doesn't mean we have to freak out and change all of our energy sources like alarmists claim.

    Dr. D claims "climate scientists" prefer climate change. That is BS. Leftist political hacks prefer pseudo-scientific terms like CC. As a geologist, I can assure you that no self respecting scientists would call it "climate change" since change is something that always occurs. We do have political hacks that have no problem inventing little catch phrases designed to fool the uniformed. All they have to do is say scientists say this or that and you get Dr. D and Grundoon believing it is Gospel.

  • Climate Change Is this a year without an Arctic summer?

    Best answer: Science used to involve data, facts, integrity and thought, but now it involves striving for grant money. Meanwhile, the climate mafia insists the Arctic is experiencing record melting, and “cracking up.” Sadly that quote probably has far more truth than just about anything you read from alarmists.

    Best answer: Science used to involve data, facts, integrity and thought, but now it involves striving for grant money. Meanwhile, the climate mafia insists the Arctic is experiencing record melting, and “cracking up.”

    Sadly that quote probably has far more truth than just about anything you read from alarmists. Science is broken and politicized. That is a tragedy because it is important. When we have these hacks lying about the threat from CO2, eventually that lie is going to be realized and people are going to have lost trust in institutions that were supposed to promote science, not political interests.

    It has always seemed to me that Greenland has been a thorn in the side of alarmists often giving contradictory information to their distortions. For example, Greenland's ice data indicated a very strong medieval warming period which prompted alarmists to argue that it must have just been local and that pathetic excuse has been largely exposed for what it was, nothing but a desperate attempt to help their Cause. We also have historical accounts but history never seems to matter to alarmists. They refuse to acknowledge the Thames used to regularly freeze in the Little Ice Age as well. They behave like Oz behind the curtain..."nothing to see here folks, here look at my shiny graph."

    Best answer: I'm pretty sure the answer will be no. I have yet to see any of them that actually want to educate themselves on real science of any sort.

    Best answer: I'm pretty sure the answer will be no. I have yet to see any of them that actually want to educate themselves on real science of any sort. They don't read textbooks, they don't take classes. If they actually learned some science they wouldn't make so many fundamental mistakes in their arguments.

    EDIT: Did you see Billy's answer? This is the really frightening aspect of the modern Republican Party, they are scared of learning and knowledge. They don't think college education is a good thing. These same people would be Taliban members in Afghanistan or ISIS members in Iraq. If this fraction of the population grows the U.S. will become a third world country as we fall far behind other countries in math and science.

    Earlier this year, an intriguing paper published by Steiger et al.

(2017) contrasted the instrumental temperature record (which showed dramatic recent warming) with the global-scale temperature record as revealed by “real proxy” evidence from ice cores. The reconstructions using proxy evidence showed a global warming trend during the first half of the 20th century, and then no significant net warming thereafter.

  • Why is global warming bad?

    Best answer: You have a propaganda campaign telling a bunch of sheeple that a nice warm day is to be feared. If it is 72.3 instead of 72, they claim it is catastrophically bad. Humans are bad, capitalism is bad, so anything from those hated humans must be bad and the sheep baaaah and follow because that is all sheep are... show more
    Best answer: You have a propaganda campaign telling a bunch of sheeple that a nice warm day is to be feared. If it is 72.3 instead of 72, they claim it is catastrophically bad. Humans are bad, capitalism is bad, so anything from those hated humans must be bad and the sheep baaaah and follow because that is all sheep are capable of doing, certainly not rational thought. As you read though the answers, you get some gems of colossal ignorance such as someone who suggested heat kills more than anything else and you then you have alarmists agreeing with it. Alarmists will agree with any asinine claim as long as it help push the Cause.

    They cannot afford to be honest. They can't afford to admit the obvious, that our CO2 appears to have some benefits as well as potential problems. If you sole focus is to exaggerate for a political cause, then facts and science aren't your friend. These people are the furthest thing from science and in fact give science a bad name.

  • What is the worst consequence of AGW?

    I have yet to find a consequence that would cause significant damage to our species. Maybe I haven't done enough research...? Wouldn't another ice age be more threatening? Would combating an ice age with CO2 emissions be possible?

    The two gases that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) identifies as being the instruments by which humanity is destroying of the biosphere are the two gases that give the biosphere life—carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapor (H2O), i.e., humidity. They call them “greenhouse gases” because they are said to enhance a “greenhouse effect”, which in turn they say will cause catastrophic global warming. However, Astronomers looking for life on other Planets use that equations to find the " Goldilocks Zone" for life! Something is not right!
