Do you believe in climate change?
Fri, November 2, 2012

Climate alarmists are great at linking single weather events like Hurricane Sandy to man-made climate change, a propaganda tactic otherwise known as climate porn.

Sandy as climate porn: Hurricane hysteria predictable and silly

Science is not based on consensus.

Science is based on FACT. Something either is or it isn't.

And by the looks of recent news articles, that 95% is quite busy right now scratching their collective heads wondering where they went wrong (and how they can save both face and their jobs)

Neil's wall of text alludes to 95% of the world's climatologists agreeing...

I doubt the veracity of that claim, but let's assume it to be correct.

95% of the world's climatologists would be out of work if they didn't go along with the climate porn theories that currently abound.

I'm confident that this fact skews the data in a huge way.

Please give up on us again Neil.

Sure, I believe - each year our climate changes, winter, Fall, Summer and Spring - elementary! LOL

When the Village Idiot is reduced to inane "sure you did fuom" responses without being able to back up its contention, you jut know it has lost the argument. Pathetic really.

Pragmatic, 2013-03-19 13:06:02 As the many arcticles state and specifically: "The camels lived in a boreal forest on Ellesmere dominated by larch trees that provided plenty to eat." Source: http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/03/05/giant-ancient-camel-remains-discovered-in-canadian-arctic/

And it was warmer: "Slight changes in the Earth’s orbit are believed to have triggered a global temperature rise of two to three degrees about 3.5 million years ago. Due to poorly understood feedback mechanisms in the climate system, the warming was greatly amplified in the Arctic with temperatures on Ellesmere rising 14 to 22 C, allowing the forests — and camels — to move north." Source: Ibid.

Now that was 3.5 million years ago so accounting for continetal drift that would put it, on a geographic scale, REAL close to where it is today.

It, of course, has nothing to do with Pangea which was some 250 million years ago. So, I don't know how Mc Neil's attempt at educating us "stupid" people is relevant.

As usual there is the incessant background bird droppings.

Sure you did fuom
Mrs-Brigand, 2013-03-20 19:48:19

"Too funny how fuom changes his story. Now he says because at one time there was an animal living in the arctic that is related to the modern day camel living in the deserts, that means the Arctic had to of been a warm place for such an animal to live in"

Never said any such thing.
Pragmatic, 2013-03-19 13:06:02

And why not? If a minority of the world's scientists find reason to question this ammassed research, why not the common man too? Or are we to treat science like a new religion, where thuo shalt not question, thou shalt only obey?

Neil McClung, 2013-03-18 18:49:10 Posted: "No counter to the information put forward -"

I have posted links to pictures of IPPC climate monitors located next to air conditioners, ashphalt parking lots etc. I have suggested tapping geo-thermal energy. Also, I noted the correlation of data does not equal causality. The U.S. meteorological service(NOAA) can't model the path of major storms more than a few days out and they have had decades of data gathering and model creation experience. A climate model is certainly hugely more complex with a much larger error margin. That said, no one here has argued that the climate is NOT changing. However, carbon taxes, or cap and trade, are at best just scams and resolve nothing. Check pundits such as Maurice Strong, Al Gore or D. Suzuki's carbon footprints. Last time I checked they were not classified as conservatives.

As for stupidity here...did you notice the meter takes a huge leap when you post? Seriously, was your post that teachers get only 2-3 weeks vacation and are back in their respective schools mid-August a gaffe? You also stated that teachers would happily do their part during the turbulent economic clusterXXXX. Ahhh, not so much.


Not_the_Daddy, 2013-03-19 08:18:11

I am still amazed at the stupidity here - made me leave in the first place. No counter to the information put forward - except for my gaffe regarding "gravitational" rather than magnetic fields which I realized only after I hit send.

As always, you can't call into real question the amassed research of the vast majority of the world's scientists, so you counter with personal attacks. Why respond with substance when you can some up with cute little names?
