    The Earth has been cooling the past couple decades.
    Ya ya I know, “it’s cold because it’s warming”…

    “The Earth has been cooling the past couple decades.”

    No, the increase has leveled off. That isn’t the same thing as saying the earth has cooled. Let’s try to argue with facts.

    As far as I know, the Earth’s landmass has been been pretty much the same for the last billion years at least.

    The IPCC predicts sea level will rise between 200 & 500 millimeters by 2100. I’ll leave it to the liberals to show the maps with Atlanta on the seashore.

    Yeah, Waterworld is as close to actually looking into this phenomenon as most of the deniers have come. Only their not drinking what Costner was drinking — they’re swigging down the same stuff, only it comes in a Koch bottle.

    Uh huh, I know it’s true ’cause I read it on the internet!

    The usual definition of ‘global warming’ by all those effete intellectual snobs with whom I strongly disagree is that, if one takes global average temperatures and then does a time series, the data slope upwards with a statistically significant slope.

    The search for statistical significance (for those atheists who do such ung_dly things) is difficult. One must torture the data until it confesses, taking subset after subset after subset until one finds one subset with a statistically significant result (usually, about 1 in 10 at the 10% level, or one in 20 at the 5% level of significance).

    This can be used both ways: deniers selected subset after subset after subset until they found a 17 year period that has no statistically significant warming. Sixteen and eighteen didn’t work, so they had a lot of work to do.

    If they had any sense, they’d do as I do and call on St Augustine that all math is sinful, hence it follows that global warming is a sinners’ hoax since it uses averages and time series.

    The claim that scientists have reversed themselves was investigated and found false. Looking at peer-reviewed publications, it was determined that there’s been no flip-flop between “warming” and “cooling” except in how the press chooses to report it.

    I’m shocked, shocked that our resident conservatives place so much credence in what the press says. Shocked, I tell you.

    Again, why do you not think? Let’s put things in perspective.

    Read this.

    So 3 feet? Well, that was 1995. So here in 2012 there was a projected 10 foot rise in sea level and the following article gives you an idea of what the US coastline would be like. It’s interactive so you can type in your zip and see how your back yard will look.

    Are you beginning to see?

    It would help if you opened your eyes.

    Yes the climate is changing. No there will be no water world. Once a certain point is reached the cycle goes the other way. Oh, yeah. Humans may not make it but so what?

    Are you smart enough to figure out how to survive?

    Kevin did………

    Things are going to change. Some things will be worse. That is a given. It’s possible to reduce the amount of “worse” that it gets. But since it’s going to get worse anyway, no reason to try to reduce the effects.

    Roofs fail. I could fix my roof and hope my house lasts longer as a result. But it will fail again in another 20 years or so, so screw it.

    This is the attitude that made America the greatest country in the world.

    Why is the southern ice cap getting bigger and has been since they put satellites up there in polar orbit to look at the ice caps?
    It set some records last year and didn’t melt as much as it has in the past.Now its above the new 30 year average they came up with last year.

    You can see what it was at the end of last month and what the satellites see today at both poles.
    You can go back to 1979 when they put the satellites up there and look at the sea ice from then to today month by month.

    In the movie Waterworld the ice melted because the poles shifted suddenly.Which has happened in the past.
    Only their not drinking what Costner was drinking — they’re swigging down the same stuff, only it comes in a Koch bottle.
    Yours must come from Tom Styers $100 million dollar bottle.
    It ’s amazing what the democrats will say just because some one gives them $100 million dollars.Hence Obama and Reid talking about what they were paid to talk about this week.

    Even Liberals can’t believe that there is enough ice to melt that will raise the sea level 29,000 feet as in Waterworld?

    doctorummno: just a note, Defense concerns on sea level rise affecting military bases includes Stockton, Ca.! Tidal surges will affect many areas far inland.

    Something the Rapid Global Climate Changes deniers do not seem to want to realize is:

    (1) The US needs to get off of the fossil fuel diet as the areas of the world where we get our excess fossil fuels are both unstable and anti democratic by nature. We do NOT need to be beholden to such under any circumstances!

    (2) Oil and coal (which can be made into oil and petro chemicals) are the very basis for our civilization. And I am NOT talking about using such commodities for energy and transportation by burning them up into the atmosphere! They are used in manufacturing for both lubrication and machine tool cooling. They are the entire basis for the petro chemical industry, which is in turn the basis for plastics, medications, and even fertilizers for the agricultural industries. These commodities are far too precious to just burn up into the atmosphere, such burning being the most idiotic use mankind in general can make of such precious commodities!!

    (3) Burning these fossil fuels up into our atmosphere creates pollution that has nothing to even do with Rapid Global Climate Change at all. It does however create pollutions that reduce the health of literally millions (if not billions) of human beings, which in turn raises the costs of health care far more then the costs of seeing to it that humanity reduces these pollutions!!

    Note that none of these very worthwhile issues has anything to even do with Rapid Global Climate Change, they stand on their own as they always have anyway. Rapid Global Climate Change is just another reason to work to reduce the burning of fossil fuels.

    What do these deniers want anyway? More pollution, and a faster burning up of these precious commodities? Is mankind (with the US leading) really that stupid??

    Yes. Consider who they repeatedly vote for.

    This is getting absurd.
    We, who are against man-made global climate disruption, aren’t “deniers”. We’re not stupid, ignorant folk who can’t accept the data as presented. That is not our position.
    Let me state, for the record, the rights position on this topic.
    The people behind the propaganda of MMGCD are frauds. They KNOW they are frauds. They KNOW what they propose is pure hokum They KNOW they’re lying to the public. They are purposely engaging in perpetuating a fraud.
    We, who oppose their actions, don’t say they are wrong, we say they are FRAUDS!
    They are despicable spreaders of lies that cause people to fear, cause governments to steal and they need to be stopped.
