    Best answer: What is global warming to you? Apparently you think climates were stable before humans began emitting CO2 so it is easy to convince you that humans caused any warming that occurred. It is apparently easy to convince you that any warming is necessarily bad. In fact, the climates always change, sometimes a lot and sometimes not so much. Humans have fared much better in warm times than they did in cold times. Cold times are associated with pestilence and poverty. Why would we want that?

    When you have people wanting to force people to stop using fossil fuels and move to more expensive energy, it becomes political. We have people that suggest there is a political consensus to tax or restrict fossil fuels and move to much more expensive and unreliable energy. Energy is the life blood of our economy. There absolutely is not and there isn't a scientific consensus either. They lie and exaggerate to try to force a political consensus before people wake up. They seek power and money and exaggerating AGW is one of their political strategies.

    We have wacko leftists that are hell bent on suggesting that any consensus of any warming is consensus that we have to enact a ruinous leftist agenda. That was the entire point of the AGW scare and I knew it and most skeptics knew it and alarmists prove it every day. Any fire that happens, they point to it and suggest we have to enact their agenda. Any hurricane happens, they ambulance chase it. There really isn't anything they won't do for their cause. They have already sacrificed their science and common sense to their cause.

    Best answer: I really don't know. I can't even convince me!

    I can see the poles are warming because the permafrost is disappearing from several places.
    I understand that man is putting CO2, among other things, into the atmosphere and that CO2, by itself, under lab conditions can cause warming when it has light shone through it.

    For some people that will be enough. However, I know that correlation is not necessarily causation. CO2 is being increased by man but CO2 is also being increased because it is getting warmer.

    I also understand that heat leaves earth because of greenhouse gases. That is, GHGs cause cooling as well. It is also known that the earth's temperature has varied greatly all by itself.

    Analogy: Imagine a crowded bar with everyone talking and you are monitoring the sound pressure level. It varies greatly all by itself. Then your friend arrives, you look at the sound level and it has increased. Must it be her fault or could it be something else - even if she has been talking the whole time?

  • How and when did the Anthropogenic Global Warming scam begin?

    Best answer: I think you could say it started with Maurice Strong.

    Best answer: I think you could say it started with Maurice Strong. Strong, a Canadian billionaire helped found the IPCC, a political organization that was all about using CO2 to further a leftist agenda. That agenda included global governance, redistribution and they used environmental crisis to sell the need.

    I think Democrat Senator Timothy Worth of Colorado summed it up well, “We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing.…”

    Then we had Hansen, a leftist activist head of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies and Mann came up with his fake hockey stick. The leftist agenda provided everything a failing leftist agenda could dream of, control, money, and sticking it to capitalism.

    Best answer: There is absolutely no empirical experimental evidence to prove humans are warming the Earth.

    Experiments conducted in the early 20th Century by scientists including R.W. Wood and Niels Bohr proved that “greenhouse” gases like CO2 cannot increase air temperature by “trapping” infrared radiation. The results of R.W. Wood’s research were published in Philosophical magazine , 1909, vol 17, p319-320 - back when science relied on experiments, not computer models. Four years later Niels Bohr reported his discovery that the absorption of specific wavelengths of light didn’t cause gas atoms/molecules to become hotter. Empirical science proves that CO2 will not warm our atmosphere by trapping IR. The Earth will continue to warm and cool according to the natural cycles of the sun, the oceans, volcanism, orbital variations, and numerous other natural factors. The 0.04 percent concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere is a drop in the bucket and totally irrelevant and insignificant.

    Best answer: I am still waiting for the 50 million climate refugees that the United Nations said we would have by 2010.
    The times we have been warned we have only months to save the planet
    Andrew Simms told us a year later that we had “only 100 months to avoid disaster.” Meaning time ran out in 2016…
    Al Gore told us that we had just ten years in July of 2008 to ensure the “survival of the United States of America”. So America has been screwed for four months now…
    Jim Hansen, warned in 2009 that Obama only had “four years to save Earth.” Apparently Earth was lost in 2013…
    Prince Charles told us in May 2008 that we had “just eighteen months to stop climate change.” That gave us until the end of 2009…
    Prince Charles by July 2009, on the other had this had been extended to “just 96 months to save the world.” Time ran out in 2017…
    Lester Brown published in 2009 that we had “only months, not years” to “save civilisation from climate change.” It’s been years…

  • Who exactly denies that climate has changed in the past?

    Best answer: I do not deny that climate has changed in the past. I do have a disagreement with the idea that it has "always changed", because I don't know what that means and I don't think people have the evidence to support this idea once it's defined.

    For example, we're concerned about the time change over a several hundred year period, from the industrial revolution to the next century or two. When people say that the climate has "always changed", for their comment to be relevant, it should always have changed over similar time periods to the one we're considering. My first problem is that they don't define what they're talking about. I guess they mean that the global mean temperature has always changed over such time periods, and the changes that have occurred are similar in magnitude (~1K) to what we've seen. If they don't mean that, then why bring it up?

    If they do mean that, I don't think they have any evidence whatsoever to support their claim. Think about it, if we round up and take 5 billion years for the age of the Earth, and use 100 years as our relevant time period, then there have been 50 million such time periods over the history of the Earth. We have reasonably good instrumental data for perhaps two of those. Over Earth's recent history, we have some imputed temperatures from proxy records, but those are bound to have bigger error bars on them than the instrumental records. Go back a billion years, and all bets are off, we simply have no time resolution whatsoever on the order of 100 years, much less the data that could resolve a 1 K change over all those time periods. The global mean temperature could have changed 0.5K, 2K or 5K over a one hundred year period, and it's doubtful that we would know. Perhaps we could narrow a 5K change to a few thousand years, but the idea that we could tell a 1 K change versus a 0.1 K change over a particular century back then is ludicrous.

    So when people say "The climate has always changed" we should see that for what it is--an unsupported truism based more on faith than on science. They say it to as a way of dismissing the very real climate change that is happening today and that humans are causing--change that we can see and measure--instead of their imagined climate change of the unspecified, unmeasured past.

  • Can someone please help I don't understand this?

    If climate change continues, snow fields and glaciers in Canada’s north will shrink, which has two main consequences. It exposes the arctic soil and it thaws decaying organic matter that had been beneath the ice and snow. Why can these consequences make climate change occur even faster

    Best answer: HUGE!

    Let us pray:
    ALGORE is my shepherd; I shall not think.
    He maketh me lie down in Greeneth pastures:
    He leadeth me beside the still-freezing waters.
    He selleth my soul for CO2:
    He leadeth me in the paths of self-righteousness for his own sake.
    Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of reason
    I will fear all logic: for thou art with me and thinking for me
    Thy Gore’s family oil fortune and thy 10,000 square Gorey foot mansion, they comfort me.
    Thou preparest a movie in the presence of contradictory evidence:
    Thou anointest mine head with nonsense; my obedience runneth over.
    Surely blind faith and hysteria shall follow me all the days of my life:
    and I will dwell in the house of ALGORE forever..........
