    The climate seems to be doing what it does EVERY year at this time. Getting colder. Leaves are changing. Snow around the corner. Looks the same to me. But that fact doesn’t line the pockets of the Chicken Little Club headed by Al Gore.

    Heh! Heh! Heh! that was truly great satire! You, NeoConMan, and I ought to get together sometime, it would be a riot! Besides which, we all know that more and more general air pollution by burning fossil fuels is good for health care costs and people in general, especially the lungs!!!

    Just because you don’t understand the difference between “seasons” and “climate,” don’t claim WE are the ignorant ones!
    Amazing that anyone doesn’t get this now. One more time:
    This may be the best-researched scientific finding since evolution — believe in that?
    The climate is getting warmer because there is more CO2 in the atmosphere trapping the heat of the sun, hence the “greenhouse effect,” with CO2 standing in for glass; sunlight gets in, but heat does not get out.
    The levels of CO2 in the atmosphere are the highest they have been in millions of years, and through some remarkable research we have confirmed that.
    But under normal circumstances CO2 is maintained at a relatively stable level by a combination of factors, including plant life and ocean absorption.
    The excessive amounts are due to human activity: burning fossil fuels, cutting down trees, etc. Since we caused it, we can change it.
    The seasons will continue to cycle through a relatively small pattern of warmth and cold because of our orbital cycle and axial tilt. But the average across each season is higher, and continuing to get higher still across the years.
    So that means it may get “colder” in winter — to a temperature that is hotter than in previous years, and get hotter to a temperature hotter than summers in previous years.
    This has many negative effects on our civilization, which depends on a relatively stable climate, which is why a lot of serious and thoughtful people are concerned about it all over the world, including conservative political parties in every major country in the world — except one.
    You’re welcome.

    Maybe when the supply of coffee, tea, chocolate, and grapes for wine is limited the deniers will see the light. Otherwise you are wasting your time telling them the truth.

    Meanwhile “Chakra” Al Gore is enjoying his new multimillion $$ beach house, paid for by true believers.

    Seas rising yet ??

    I do work for a property insurance company. A while back, due to some system problems, our web site where people apply for insurance was down. Nobody said “Look, the web site is down, that’s proof that property insurance doesn’t work!”

    And it USED to be said that there WOULD be no more seasonal changes with climate changes. Would you guys make up your mind? You just make things up as you go. Whatever the current pattern: Climate Change. Just so it ALWAYS works in YOUR favor, Chicken Little…

    “All those independent scientists who say something is wrong are just looking for an angle to cash in. But those nice people at the oil companies tell me what I want to hear- nothing is wrong and I don’t have to make any painful changes in my lifestyle- so of course I believe them!”

    Believing in Gorebal Warming is like believing there is intelligent life on Mars….

    I’ve read this before. I guess it floats around. It’s in contention for the most remarkable mixture of idiocy and arrogance.

    I’m guessing you’re not a scientist. Nah, not a guess, you’re basically shouting it from the rooftops.


    Hmm. Ok, there’s method in your post.


    Is the astrology/astronomy error to see who’s really paying attention to the crap being shovelled?

    Absolutely. Those greedy scientists just can’t find a bottom to their pit of money grubbing. We wouldn’t have this problem if science wasn’t so lucrative, now, would we?

    If we could just get the money out of science, I bet we could keep the scientists as honest as the oilmen!

    Heh heh heh …
