  • Do you think children should strike over climate change?

    Best answer: I think that they need to do something but a strike wouldn't do much because they don't have much leverage over anyone. Adults these days aren't acting very much like adults in the sense that they are consuming too much of the world's resources too quickly and leaving the planet heavily polluted for coming generations. It isn't fair or wise.

  • Are you calamity howlers ready to concede that the maldives are not under water as predicted?

    Best answer: Not only are they not ready to admit, they seem to double down on dumb. Even as they redraw their lines in the sand, they repeat the same old tired predictions that were shown to be wrong. You aren t supposed to judge them on their record. You are supposed to judge them on by their belief and because they are saving the planet.

  • How, exactly, is trying to prevent people from being harmed by global warming - anti human? - anti freedom?

    Best answer: to prevent people from being "harmed" by global warming- harming is anti human..
    As for anti freedom, you are continuing to be a SLAVE to BIG OIL..so giving up you rights for developing an alternative to oil.

    We are not certain what will happen with global warming and it is better to be prepared for the worst and hope it does not happen that way. As Big Oil supplies fertilizer to the farms, so they control the prices. If a warming does occur, the weather will change and areas that used to get yearly rainfalls at the right time of the year may turn into deserts. That is the breadbasket area of the U.S....the midlands so growing crops become nonexistent. California will be hotter than it is now so much of that will become unusable land. We still need food. The whole world is affected and right now we just barely can feed everybody. Have you been in a desert? Lots of sun and no water. Or vice versa . Too much rain and no sun. Lands that have been growing food for centuries now are unusable and maybe new farm land has to be in the mountains.? Or in the ocean because that is where the rain is falling at the right time of the year.? Or there are double the hurricanes the U.S, normally gets in a year and they are double the strength. There are going to be rapid changes as computer modeling can show us. We have a dozen years to change how we do things...because there is no other rock in orbit that is the right distance from the sun to have life. We are stuck on this one.
    . It is not impossible to fix. Big oil just wants to sell oil until year 13. They don't care. It is time for INVENTIONS THAT ACTUALLY WORK. New Billionaires can be made.

  • Do you believe in global warming?

    Best answer: I come from the era of the 60s. I can tell you as a fact that it has gotten hotter in my state during the summer and colder during the winter. We used to have lots of flowers with bees going from flower to flower pollinating now all the flowers are dead there's no more growing. The summers are baking hot and the winters are getting freezing cold. Something darn sure is happening

  • Burning fossil fuel is bad why do it?

    Best answer: because people like to live in warm homes and drive their cars to work to earn money to put in their gas guzzling cars and buy groceries and merchandise from the stores (that are also warm), that deliver food and merchandise by gas guzzling trucks from farms and companies that use gas guzzling large farm equipment and machinery to harvest that food and make the other necessities you enjoy. Look around your room. Everything you have, you somehow got with fossil fuel. So unless you have a wand like Harry Potter to conjure up what you need to live, burning fossil fuel is the only way to get it. AND IT'S NOT BAD!! Stupid liberals aren't always right!

  • What do ice core samples really prove?

    Best answer: ice cores show what earths past climate was like with records of Co2 and other atmospheric gases are recorded.
    From the deneir point of view they play up long defunct deneir nonsense like the lag theory. In as far as the record of past natural climate change goes there was indeed a lag this has always been mentioned in the science, but in a fine example of how denial works they take part of the science and leave out the parts they don’t like.
    https://www.skepticalscience.com/co2-lag...
    The ice core data refers to the glacial cycles which is not started by Co2 it is started by changes in the Earth long term orbit and tile to the sun, after 600-1000 years Co2 starts to add to this natural effect and the the planet warms. What is happening now is not being started by long term orbital shifts but by mhuman actions.
    This of course is one of very many theories deneirs have invented over the years, to try and explain away current climate change, all have long since been shown to be wrong.
    Here is a listing of many of those excuses deneirs have tried over the years, it numbers well over 100 many actually conflict with each other but deneir tend to ignore this.

  • Vostok 800 Year Lag: Thought Experiment?

    Imagine you are a climate scientist living 4 centuries after the temperature has continued to fall while CO2 has still been on the increase - i.e. half-way through an 800 year lag. Imagine further that during your lifetime, that continues to happen and, if you had a crystal ball, you would see that it would continue happening for the next dozen or so generations of climate scientists. Would you put your hand on your heart and say that increasing CO2 would necessarily cause warming when you have 400 years of empirical evidence that shows the opposite?

  • What are some of the ridiculous things attributed to Global Warming?

    Best answer: There used to be a website called numberwatch that is no longer there. That had many links. At one time it had links to "jelly fish getting bigger" and "jellyfish getting smaller" at the same time!

    The good news is that a version has been archived. http://archive.is/4bHTE

  • What is the hottest temperatures recorded that can be attributed directly to Global Warming?

    Best answer: None directly.
    The hottest year in the US was back around 1934. That was before Al Gore s Global Warming which started after WWII. However, the 1934 figure would still stand if it weren't for Jimmy Hansen cobbling up the figures.

    http://www.skepticalscience.com/1934-hottest-year-on-record-intermediate.htm

    Also, consider the 1934, if it really was caused by GW then the temperatures would have continued to climb. But they didn t. How do we know? Back in the seventies many of the same people who are now touting GW were scaring us with an Ice Age.

    Then there is a matter of record keeping. Back in 1869 when Philadelphia started to keep record the increment was to the closest 1/3rd degree. And Western Union kept all that data in Cincinnati. After that it was some time that we went to 1/10th degree. This was ambiguous as it relied on the observer s eyeball. But it was close enough for honest people. (My uncle who owned the drugstore was the official temperature taker for the town that I was born in.) Then came the automated measuring and recording devices where they used thermocouples and transmitted the results to central localities. This covered much more of the Earth. However this was corrupted when Jimmy Hansen decided not to take the Siberian remote units during the winter time because they didn t work right . At that time these were not factored into the accurate data. They only used these readings from Siberia in the summertime. Then around 1979 the powers that be used satellite data. This proved to be not so accurate so that in the late 1990s a new method of satellite data was devised and it proved much more accurate. However, it disproved GW and that would not work. So Jimmy Hansen went back to ground temperature recording. I think they now went back to satellite data.

    So you see, our data is insufficient to proclaim that any temperature is anthropogenic due to:

    1. Our incrementation has changed.
    2. Our methodology has changed.
    3. Our coverage has changed.
    4. Our data is always rounded up.
    5. People like Phil Jones and Jimmy Hansen have corrupted vital data which can never be recovered.

    So until we get consistent, honest and accurate temperature data for a length of time we will never be able to answer that question of which you ask.
