    Knight used to be one of my favorites, but he has gotten too racist. unfollow

    Let them eat their coal. If drought forecasts are accurate, they will have to.

    Give one example, if you really read it.

    I looked at your citation, but it is filled with lies and fallacies, written by someone associated with the coal industry, whose scientific qualifications are unkown.

    Why don’t you read this…The Scientific Guide to Global Warming Skepticism, instead.

    If analysis from the NCAR is correct, most of the U.S. will look like that within 50 years.

    “The assumption is being made that this heating cycle is our fault,”


    It’s not a baseless assumption. It’s a reasonable conclusion based on evidence.
    The scale of the whole Earth is larger than a forest, but we are talking about billions of people, not just one man with a match. You may think the Earth is huge, but I travel constantly, and I assure you, it is not as big as you think.


    When humans burn fossil fuels it releases CO2… 20 pounds per gallon of gasoline for example. You can calculate your emissions due to gasoline use, and you can also get an app for your Iphone, that plugs into your car and does the math for you.
    When you do the math, based on all the fuels everyone is using, that amounts to about 23 billion tons of CO2 per year.
    The sea and plants absorb some, but about half remains the air.


    Measurement show that, indeed, the amount of CO2 in the air is increasing.


    It is also a fact that CO2 traps infrared (heat) radiation. I don’t know what your level of knowledge is, but if you don’t understand this, it is easy to research.
    The lower atmosphere is heating up, and the upper atmosphere is cooling, just as you would expect, given that CO2 traps heat.


    In case you really want to look at the facts, a good primer to all this is The Scientific Guide to Global Warming Skepticism

    “Nope. If we’re not responsible for the same degree of activity on other planets, why are we responsible for those here”


    Wow, are you really that stupid? Your argument is like saying that because forest fires happen naturally, man can’t cause them.


    “Post hoc, ergo propter hoc” is a fallacy. "
    Yeah, it is, so what? Burning fossil fuels releases CO2. Believing it doesn’t is beyond stupid… it’s insanity.

    “as for your link? they site no real data just computer models "


    It was based on actual sea level measurements, as anybody who looks at it can see.


    Whether an individual ice shelf is melting or not is a local effect. Global warming is about GLOBAL effects.
    Record high temperatures are being set across the U.S. at the moment. As a local effect that doesn’t prove anything either.
    Satellite and ground measurements show the Earth is warming and CO2 levels are rising.

    Maybe because they didn’t take into account the slow down in ocean currents, which is due to global warming, and which is also contributing to sea level rise on the east coast much greater than the global average.
    Sea levels rising on US East Coast much faster than global average

    What that study actually says, is that the Fimbul Ice shelf is not melting as fast as predicted. But it is already floating in the sea, so whether it melts or not has no effect on sea level.
