• Would any climate scientists lose their job if there was no global warming?

    Best answer: Congress has blocked all attempts to impose a carbon tax for the last 20 years. If stopping carbon taxes didn't put them out of work, neither would a lack of warming. They need to produce weather reports and to be able to determine what crops to grow, where.

    Best answer: The Alarmists are the new "deniers" as Global Cooling takes hold. This past winter in the Northern Hemisphere has brought record cold, record snowfall and cold related deaths.

  • Why do global warming deniers act as if Obama is still in power?

    Best answer: As expected, no one has a clear answer. US scientists continue to publish research showing that AGW is a problem even with a vehemently contrarian administration.

    Best answer: None of the above.

    The lack of science and its replacement with politics is the issue. We know from the ClimateGate emails how "scientists" leant on journal editors or even got them replaced if they would not toe the line with their propaganda. We know some of the tricks they used to stifle replies from other scientists. (E.g. collude with the journal so that a sceptical article is delayed until you can whip us a convincing sounding rebuttal then publish both consecutively thus indicating that the rebuttal was obvious. This has the advantage that if you respond to the rebuttal then those authors will get the last word.)

    We have seen how some claim that the "science is settled". That is b*ll*cks - to use a technical term. It certainly is not science. We are still not sure about gravity - do we need dark matter or not?

    Then we have the groupthink. How the data is constantly being refined as time passes and every "refinement" results in a greater warming slope. Then we have the newspeak. Does "climate change" mean any change in climate or just man-made ones? If it means just anthropogenic climate change then what do you call the combination of both man-made and non-manmade climate change?

    All this based on such a shortage of data. If you plot the world's temperature on two sheets of paper (A4/Letter Size) then the last tenth of a millimetre - the thickness f the paper - represents a million years. So, you look at the last one thousandth of that then put a line through the points. How close to reality is that going to be?

    Best answer: The short answer would be "something like North Korea". But scratch the surface a bit and I think you realize they clearly do not go far enough. Many of their people still have access to luxury goods like smartphones, not to mention electricity and enough to eat.

    The agenda that I, and I think most people really have -- an ideal had since we were children imagining our futures -- is of course much more beautiful. It is with so much fondness that we dream of the day when no more than a dozen or so elites have 100% of power, wealth, and pleasure. And I, and everyone I know, has pretty much nothing -- toiling away in tedious manual labor without so much as a t-shirt to our names, breaking our backs for the pure benefit of some elite strangers I've never met. I seriously cannot WAIT for this -- I mean it's just a natural goal, a fundamental human instinct, isn't it? Because what other possible justification could there be for my tendency to trust decades of careful, expert research while reserving a bit of skepticism for the validity of some YouTube videos or parroted, empty talking points. It's all for the agenda!

I checked to make sure I didn't get any notification that I was accused of something. It must be a lizard lover. Really I'm clueless. Just another YA bug.

    Best answer: It is strange that the people from the less developed countries want to migrate to developed countries. That would seem to imply that they think that life in a developed country is preferable.

    Many of those people already live in a country where they are close to nature and do not have access to motor cars etc. Why do they want to move?

    Why are people not leaving the USA in droves to live in a place where they will earn about a dollar a day? Can't they see the health benefits? The advantages of communing with nature. No car to repair, no lavatory to clean, fresh food - as long as you don't mind growing it and killing it yourself. What is not to like?

    A better plan would have been to have had the industrial Revolution earlier so that we had ironed all the wrinkles out of it by now.

    Best answer: The Sun's magetosphere is immensely powerful. One solar flare could cripple the electric grids all over the Earth. As the magnetic field of the Sun cycles through polarity at regular intervals (Kano listed some of the intervals), sometimes before the shift of poles, the magnetic fields in the sun get all tangled and push their way to the surface as sun spots. These magnetic disturbances seem to have an effect on our temperatures. In periods when there are no sun spots, the climate is generally cooler than periods with more sun spots. This may be due to increased solar emissions during high sunspots but it may also be due to the effects of the magnetic disturbances IMO. The cosmic ray theory suggests that they may produce clouds. Some clouds tend to cool whereas others lead to warming. I think we are getting better at understanding the effects but they are very complicated and require immense computing power as well as more data that we possess.

    Best answer: No. If done on a wide enough scale, it might have a slight effect on local temperatures. Given the petroleum based products that need to be used to paint the streets white, the entire endeavor seems counterproductive.

    Best answer: These kinds of studies need to be replicated over and over again before any real conclusions can be reached. If this particular species, a barramundi, decides rocks or some other environment is better if the water acidifies, then we need to know why. Is there is an evolutionary reason for this. Is it because it has happened before and those fish that moved toward the rocks were more able to survive in more acidic environments. If it has an evolutionary response to changing acidity, maybe it is more evidence that CO2 isn't as stable as suggested by interpretation of ice core bubbles. You have to remain skeptical of these sorts of studies. Maybe the increased acid they added in their test reacted with something in their presumed test area that doesn't exist in the real world. Sound just adds another poorly understood factor. We are supposed to believe that barramundi minnows use sound to determine where they "settle". They get past this by saying they "may" but maybe they may not.
