I would be happy if oranges could be grown again in Georgia.

Climate change sucks.

Hell, it would be great to be able to grow citrus in North Florida again.

Someday, if we actually do see some global warming.

There was some warming in the 90s and early 2000s, allowing coconut palms to once again grow in the coastal areas of central Florida. 2010 put an end to that.

If global warming was actually happening, like the theory predicted, most people would really be against doing anything to stop climate change. Longer growing seasons and fewer frosts and freezes would be great.

And less snow, that would really be nice.

To be fair there have been one or two summers without heat waves. In New York recent ones would be 2000 and 2004. 2009 and 2014 barely had an official heat wave. Most summers, even ones remembered as cool, such as 1969 or 1992 have at least one robust heat wave.

Here's that 700 scientist thingy.

Where they claim acidification isn't a thing because it can't be a thing because rocks and the ocean will absorb the acid and make everything OKEY DOKEY.
Oysters dying as coast is hit hard | Sea Change: Ocean acidification | The Seattle Times

Oysters now haven't reproduced on their own in Willapa Bay since 2005, so every grower now relies on hatchery-produced larvae. Once the oysters make it to that stage they can survive acidic conditions just fine.

None of the dooms day scenarios from the GW fanatics have come to pass - yet people still give credibility to what they claim will happen in the future.

Insane.
Can you provide a source from any scientific group, scientific agency, respected scientific publication, or any government that says global warming is a hoax? (Answer: No)

Like NASA and every other scientific group says "97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities."
Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet: Scientific Consensus


And American republicans are the only conservative political party on Earth that believe global warming is a hoax.
Why Are Republicans the Only Climate-Science-Denying Party in the World?
https://www.theguardian.com/environm...climate-denial

The corporate Fox news/Rush radio and corporate paid republican politicians say "global warming is a hoax" because combating global warming would reduce corporate profits.

Have average temperatures changed in recent times in any city in an inhabited area with advanced weather records? No.

And as far as high mountain areas I just compared my early July 1973 pictures of Lake Solitude, Grand Teton Naional Park, Wyoming to recent TripAdvisor descriptions of the same hike. No change.

This is pure BS.

"Averaged over all land and ocean surfaces, temperatures warmed roughly 1.53 degrees Fahrenheit (0.85 degrees Celsius) from 1880 to 2012, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change."

"In the Northern Hemisphere, where most of Earth's land mass is located, the three decades from 1983 to 2012 were likely the warmest 30-year period of the last 1,400 years, according to the IPCC."

https://www2.ucar.edu/climate/faq/ho...last-100-years


About the IPCC,

"The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a scientific and intergovernmental body under the auspices of the United Nations, set up at the request of member governments, dedicated to the task of providing the world with an objective, scientific view of climate change and its political and economic impacts."

"The IPCC does not carry out its own original research, nor does it do the work of monitoring climate or related phenomena itself. The IPCC bases its assessment on the published literature, which includes peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed sources."

Thousands of scientists and other experts contribute (on a voluntary basis, without payment from the IPCC) to writing and reviewing reports, which are then reviewed by governments. IPCC reports contain a "Summary for Policymakers", which is subject to line-by-line approval by delegates from all participating governments. Typically this involves the governments of more than 120 countries."

Scientists use temperature records from 1880-2016, and the top 10 hottest years have all happened since 1998. And "2015 was the hottest year on record (since 1880)."
