So the warm middle ages was caused by cows that had farts of CO2 laced with flourocarbons instead of methane? But what happened to cause the mini-ice age... a bunch of gay vikings that went on a decorating binge in Greenland that ate up all the CO2?Does everyone think that climatologists are total idiots? That they don't know about natural cycles of climate change? That these things aren't considered in climate modeling programs?
Those of us who live up North know the truth. The natives of the Arctic circle have a long collective memory, and there are things happening that they have never witnessed. I saw the warmest winter last year I ever have, and since moving back North I have definitely not seen the winters I did when I was younger. I have received numerous similar comments from others.
I believe scientists over politicians any day. The current administration has shown its ambivolence for deciding policy on its scientific merits numerous times, it is thus not surprising that it does so with an inconvenient truth like global warming. I just hope we all wake up before it's too late.
vs a volcano :hmm:Whilst I think that global warming could be caused by the Sun burning hotter, some natural cyclic weather phenomena or the way Venus lines with with Uranus on any given Sunday, I think it would be foolish to believe that all the pollution we have pumped into the atmosphere over the decades, even centuries, has had no effect on the global climate.
Well, you can lump that as cyclic weather pattern or Venus aligning with Uranus - either way, my point is that I'm sure that we have also had some effect on the whole global warming thing. Whether that is a small effect or a large one, I'm not qualified to judgevs a volcano :hmm:
read both links. The one documents the predictions made on this topic. I do remember the big ice age scare in the 70's. I will be totally willing to cut back on green house gases when ALL countries do. You see China and India were exempt from Kyoto and europe (a signatory) is largely non-compliant despite the open criticism they dish out. It is a easy way for the socialists to destroy the free countries.Well, you can lump that as cyclic weather pattern or Venus aligning with Uranus - either way, my point is that I'm sure that we have also had some effect on the whole global warming thing.

:rotfl: sad part is they are usually better than watching network TVThere was an interesting episode on "South Park" regarding global warming. By watching that show I get all the facts I need relating to current issues without having to sift through piles of editorials. It just makes you a more all-around, knowledgeable person. South Park has also educated me about Scientology, Alcoholics Anonymous, AARP, among other forefront topics.
A year does not a trend make.Why was the summer of 1936 warmer than the summer of 2006 in the U.S.?
Um...Because of all of the friggin ice that's melting.Why was the surface temp of the ocean in the "hurricane zone" much cooler this year than the previous years?
At least for this year, the water is cooler. But you know that because you already stated it.What happened to all the massive hurricanes we were supposed to have?
DUDE! WTF! Show me.Why are the ice sheets in Antarctica getting thicker?
