    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.

    Any idiot can download the data. Troublemakers have had thermometers since the 18th century, and reliable thermometers from the 19th century, and have scribbled the temperatures down in notebooks. Then some people with far too much time on their hands digitized all that data and posted it on-line.


    Now it’s possible to see every temperature taken by meteorologists for the past 150 years, and take averages over the entire world. One could then take those averages and do a regression to see if there is any statistical evidence for warming.


    This would be horribly wrong. I don’t believe in data or statistics. I know the world is a small, flat place, and those so-called aeroplanes just show Photoshopped pictures in their so-called windows making the gullible passengers think they’re up in the air.


    And reliable explorers managed to find a Northwest Passage open year-round back in the 16th century, but always lost it and could never find it again. Now, with GPS, we found that passage (and the Northeast passage as well) but only in summer.


    And Ms Shelley wrote a documentary in 1818 that, back then, the Arctic was a tropical paradise, so it’s clearly colder now than it was in 1818, and this ‘global warming’ is just a myth.


    (Unless you’re a godless believer in data and statistics.)

    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.

    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!”

    Yes, they are.

    During the last major period of global warming, which occurred around 15,000 BC, major portions of northern Europe, Canada and the midwest/northeast of the United States were opened to human settlement. If the alarmists were around then, they would have been arguing that we would all die if it wasn’t prevented. You want grapes for your wine? Grow them in Greenland. The Vikings did over a thousand years ago.

    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….
