    “Bubble boy” still not exposed to germs, or the germ of a thoought?

    • The atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide have increased to levels unprecedented in at least the last 800,000 years. Carbon dioxide concentrations have increased by 40% since pre-industrial times, primarily from fossil fuel emissions.

    • There is “high confidence” that the rate of sea-level rise since the mid-19th century has been larger than the mean rate during the previous two millenniums. Over the period 1901-2010, global mean sea level rose by about 7.4 inches. Global mean sea level will continue to rise during the 21st century, with a projected range of from 10-32 inches.

    • There is “high confidence” that over the last two decades, the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have been losing mass, glaciers have continued to shrink almost worldwide, and Arctic sea ice and Northern Hemisphere spring snow cover have continued to decrease in extent.

    • Global surface temperatures are “likely” to be at least 2.7 degrees above pre-industrial levels by the year 2100, and will likely range from 4.7 to 8.6 degrees above the levels seen in 1986-2005.

    Neither one of you read for yourselves. Radish, you should just change your name to parrot. Everything you’ve written is denied by the ‘scientists’ you have your faith in.

    “Everything you’ve written is denied by the ‘scientists’ you have your faith in.”

    Which specific scientist is denying which specific statement in Radish’s comment?

    In the real world, Chakra Al Gore is enjoying his new multi-million $$ beach house..

    He doesn’t seem to be too concerned about the sea rising.

    This is not about “tolerance” of other views. It’s about facts. Global warming is a fact. Human contribution is a fact. What the science actually says is that it is 95% certain — which is generally accepted by the scientific community — that there is significant global warming primarily caused by human beings. (The acceptance of global warming itself is higher still.)
    There is no need to be “tolerant” of people who reject the facts. It’s like being tolerant of the Flat Earth Society.

    Ah, yes, the idiot graph again. That percentage of alcohol in your blood would significantly change YOUR behavior and ability to drive. That percentage of arsenic in your system would kill you.
    Quit posting this! It doesn’t mean anything. Or I can restate it for you: The percentage of CO2 is small, but its impact is so large that a meaningful increase will have major effects on the climate.
    And that is what has happened.

    @sw10mm

    I am a scientist, as is dtroutma. We know what we are talking about. You don’t, or you wouldn’t have posted your comment. Over 97% of papers discussing climate agree that Anthropogenic Climate Change is happening. Who are your “scientists?” The most notable and credible denier — one funded by the oil barons the Koch brothers — has agreed based on his data that AGW is happening!

    Going out on a limb to piss off the folks that understand science.
    Use the same reasoning just a little, “denier”, what part of that word confuses you?
    By definition they will not acknowledge facts, but instead deny them.
    .
    How many times? How many studies? How much history?
    .
    Give it up as wasted bandwidth, most of them are merely posturing anyway. Nobody that can read is really that ignorant, it is deliberate, and they certainly are effective at upsetting those who care.

    There was a time when Americans listened to NASA scientists and went to the moon. Now NASA scientists are political fodder for conservatives, as is scientific truth.

    onguard asks “Are there any Dem Libs posting here that are not Doctors or Scientists?” Are there any conservatives posting here who are doctors or scientists?

    Pink Floyd’s,Wish You Were Here lyrics sadly reflects what humans are willing to trade for blind ideology.

    Read; Physics of the Atmosphere and Climate by Murry L. Salby Cambridge University Press. When you have mastered basic atmospheric science, then come back and lecture us how 95% of the World’s greatest scientists are wrong!
