The climate changes - that's a natural fact.

. . .
No 'respectable' climate scientist admits that we can REVERSE the changes, nor specifies what is the official “normal.” Which begs the question, how does sequestering CO2 prevent the alleged disasters that have yet to manifest, when water vapor is the major greenhouse gas?

If anthropogenic climate change wasn't a hoax, we might see common sense initiatives like:
1) 80% transition to electric traction rail in place of long haul diesel trucking, urban and suburban mass transit. Not only will it save 90-95% in fuel, allow for energy recovery braking, but reduce petroleum consumption below domestic production.
2) Superinsulation, energy conservation, resilient and frugal housing. Housing consumes a substantial amount of resources to build, repair, and maintain. Ditto, for dealing with natural disasters.
3) Securing coastlines and recovering seafloor not unlike the Netherlands, with extensive levees and flood protection.

Why aren't the ALARMISTS seeking common sense solutions?

Former President BHO just bought beachfront property on Martha's Vineyard. Guess he's not too concerned. Why should we be? Unless he suddenly became a "climate denier" ! ! !

You should publish your evidence that AGW doesn't exist....You would be famous.

SCAM! It doesn’t take an “expert” to know not one of their apocalyptic predictions has ever came true.

Uh huh. Another apocalyptic prediction with no validity to your hypothesis.

July was 0.07 degrees warmer than July 2016.....

...7/100th of a degree warmer...or only 4/100th degree C

that's an increase of 7/100th degree in 3 years


They use average cause it sounds like a bigger scarier number....and it fools people that don't look it up

..and I post NASA's drivel...it's their numbers...temperatures are increasing at the rate of 57/10,000th degree a year

All the alarmists have to back their outrageous flailing to "DO SOMETHING" are their computer models that predict DOOM!

Mr. Meteorologist, if he was honest, would admit the FACT that ALL meteorological computer models are BUNK mere days out!

The EURO, GFS, NAM, et al ad nauseum, are all a JOKE when the sampling is no longer available days out.

Hurricane maps three days out are spaghetti swirls of uncertainty!

Science corrupted by politics is EVIL; Legislation thereof will be the end of our Republic!

YOU had to quickly find something, ANYTHING to counter this:


Post #2 shredded you and your fool in a single sentence.

SO SAD YOU
The only sad thing is that you didn’t stay with that thread to see that the op was embarrassed .

Well since around 97% of scientists believe that man is causing warming maybe you could quote some of those “scientists”.

Information Quality Act Correction Request Regarding NASA’s Claim that 97 Percent
of Scientists Agree on Anthropogenic Global Warming


We ask NASA to determine that the claim that “[n]inety-seven percent of climate scientists agree
that climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities”
violates the IQA. As is shown below, that claim is not objective; it is neither accurate nor
reliable nor unbiased. This claim appears on the NASA web page titled “Climate Change: How
Do We Know?” among others.2

It is a fact that humans have changed the climate.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-c...-idUSKCN1QE1ZU

Scientists said "confidence that human activities were raising the heat at the Earth’s surface had reached a “five-sigma” level, a statistical gauge meaning there is only a one-in-a-million chance that the signal would appear if there was no warming." Five sigma means we know with 99.99994% certainty that man has changed the climate.

Really I think deniers should give up with the denial thing. It's not working, polls show a strong majority of Americans now accept manmade climate change as real. Time to move on and start contributing towards solutions.
