    Are we really rated that highly?

    What about the polar ice cap study that shows that Earth goes through hot and cold cycles every 50,000 years.

    What about it? This warming trend bucks the expected cycles. That’s why it is important and linked primarily to human-caused reasons and not natural cycles.

    I guess we should be glad that “global warming” is still a hot topic. It helps divert our attention from dull stuff like the central government’s attempt to control every aspect of life in the U.S.

    Any time someone who doesn’t believe in the global climate change wants to post a link to a reputable scientific article I’m happy to read it. I keep asking, and so far not a single person has met the challenge. Instead we get silly comments about Al Sharpton and Al Gore. Get serious, Doctor.

    Try listening to some real scientists instead of repeating your nonsense about Sharpton and Gore:
    New study: 9,135 of 9,136 authors of peer-reviewed climate articles support global warming. One (1) rejected it.
    This is based on a story of 13,950 articles on “global warming” OR “global climate change.” Previously it was noted by this author that only 24 articles explicitly rejected the theory (that’s 99.828% support for AGW).
    This study went to the authors of those studies.
    ALL DATA IS AVAILABLE BEHIND THIS LINK. The author says “Anyone can repeat as much of the new study as they wish—all of it if they like.”
    That’s 99.989% of publishing scientists who agree AGW is real and happening.

    On “American Dad” a Guy dressed as a bullet said that we don’t need gun control. Since it was a cartoon I think we must need it.

    Al Sharpton and Al Gore never claimed to be scientists, they are just reporting what every credible climate scientist is saying. Please, follow the money. When you find a group trying to convince you that climate change is a natural occurrence, it usually only takes two clicks to expose the oil and gas industry, which has real money riding on your gullibility. Academic scientists get paid no matter WHAT their results are, and a scientist who found credible evidence that climate change ISN’T happening would be guaranteed a grant to study it further, because that would be a very surprising and interesting finding.

    Thank your local GOP legislators.

    After all, oil and coal are such small burgeoning industries. Heck they only manage to be 6 of the 10 largest companies on earth.

    Seems to me that the points in the article are disputable and are moreso PR. The Question of AGW can be measured in many different ways. What is significant warming.

    25% ? 50%? 75% ? 90% ? 100%

    Using the earliest you get an overwhelming consensus and the latest an overwhelming rejection

    However when one looks at change in climate the ecosystem has been balanced for thousands of years based on gradual shifts. Increasing how fast things change gives less time to adapt, hence favoring short living and generally invasive lifeforms.

    Seven Decades before Columbus sailed for the New World, the Chinese had already sailed through an ice free Arctic Ocean, taking the Northwest Passage from Iceland back to China.They had completely circumnavigated the Americas. Admiral Zhou Wen took half his fleet across the Northwest Passage from the Caribbean while the other half retraced their steps back around the Cape of Good Hope and back to China.

    One cannot sail across the Arctic Ocean when it is choked with ice when one is using large sailing junks as ships. Ergo, the Arctic must have been relatively ice free in 1421-1423, long before the industrial revolution and the so-called human influence on climate. Polar bears have survived just fine, Mr. Gore.

    Who’s paying you? One of these?
    David, thank you for the patience of arguing with this guy. It seems obvious he comes equipped with various links and talking points to deflect any debate. I would not be at all surprised if he’s a Murdoch hack – it’s the kind of crap they do. The policy on Fox News: Facts Don’t Matter on Global Warming – It’s What Resonates with Voters!

    How about starting with the fact that the “hockey stick” has been THOROUGHLY validated? So it’s not a lie.
    And debating what is “significant” warming is merely silly. It is having a meaningful impact on the real world.

    Here are a few links for you:
    1. Taylor’s total lack of credentials for the space he specializes in writing about:
    2. An example of Taylor’s inappropriate “investigation” from a previous article:
    3. Here’s another example of his articles being smacked down by actual astronomer Phil Plait:
    Realclimate.org points out that he has been CAUGHT misrepresenting data by angry authors 6-7 times in the past year. But here’s a thorough explanation of why Taylor is not a trustworthy source:
    He’s just a flack for oil companies. Period.
