    Re: Paper; Global Warming "The Biggest Science Scandal Ever"

    If - someone tells me (and can prove it with scientific evidence) that I’m going to die in five years unless I triple the money I pay in taxes ( and can prove using similar scientific evidence), which will guarantee me 25 more years of life, what would I do?
    I know what I’d do - but I also know more than a few “death before taxes” fruitcakes who would be dead in five years.

    Re: Paper; Global Warming "The Biggest Science Scandal Ever"

    When I'm thinking about trying to reason with someone, I like to ask a few general questions to get an idea whether trying to is something worth the effort.

    Do you believe in evolution?

    Do you believe in man induced climate change?

    If I'm still looking for a yes, my third question is

    Do you believe in gravity?

    If I get less that two answered yes, I realize there's no use trying. Two out of three, maybe you can reach them but it's an uphill climb.

    Fortunately, anthropogenic global warming/climate change ceased to be a scientific debate years ago. (hint - its caused by mankind)

    Unfortunately, anthropogenic global warming/climate change continues to be a political debate.

    Even Trump should be able to understand this, but probably wont: (you can skip to 1:30)

    Herein is a major problem......this is a global issue.....green, polluted snow in Russia. I’m not an environmental scientist or an industrialist but I gotta think what’s going on in russia with what’s outlined in the linked article is happening in many other countries as far as pollution from factories etc is concerned.....I know it is in India cause I saw it when I was visiting family in Mumbai and when the fam and I went to the Taj Mahal. Now it may not be raining or snowing green everywhere but surely it’s in all our best interests to help encourage other countries to improve their environmental regulations and to make meaningful improvement in improving our own air/water/soil quality

    not to worry, our new super duper white house council of scientists will tell us this is all bunk.

    Re: Paper; Global Warming "The Biggest Science Scandal Ever"

    Carbon dioxide – the gas scientists say is most responsible for global warming – has reached levels in our atmosphere not seen in 3 million years, scientists announced this week in a new study.
    At that time, sea levels were as much as 65 feet higher than they are now, Greenland was mostly green and Antarctica had trees.
    “It seems we’re now pushing our home planet beyond any climatic conditions experienced during the entire current geological period, the Quaternary,” said study lead author Matteo Willeit of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany. “A period that started almost 3 million years ago and saw human civilization beginning only 11,000 years ago. So, the modern climate change we see is big, really big; even by standards of Earth history.”

    July confirmed as hottest month recorded
    (CNN)July 2019 has replaced July 2016 as the hottest month on record, with meteorologists saying that global temperatures marginally exceeded the previous record.
    The European Union's Copernicus Climate Change Programme, which analyzes temperature data from around the planet, said that July was around 0.56 °C warmer than the global average temperature between 1981-2010.
    That's slightly hotter than July 2016, when the world was in the throes of one of the strongest El Niño events on record.

    Re: Paper; Global Warming "The Biggest Science Scandal Ever"

    A recent report really got to me...the average temp for a three month summer season in most of the United States will be 100 degrees. The prediction is this will be the new normal in 25 years.

    In north Alabama, we might have a week of consecutive 100 degree days...it's awful. I can't imagine 90 days in a row of it. Every year.

    Maybe if Trump fires enough climate scientists we can go into this blindly without understanding what's happening.

    One last random thought...in my opinion the skeptics are basically ensuring that in the near future people will live in an environment that is hot as hell. But on judgement day, they may find that they get to spend eternity in another very hot place.

    Kidding aside, I do think it is a sin to destroy the planet's ecosystem to maximize current profit, with no concern for long term effects of those policies.
