Temps in Greenland hit their lowest point in 8000 years about 1875. It's been getting warmer since. It was hotter in Greenland in 1000 A.D. and even warmer 4000 years ago. There were vinyards all over England around 1000 A.D., it has been too cold since.

Interesting documentaries on You Tube, there is disagreement within the scientific community.

I don't deny global warming is happening.

I don't deny that the environment is changing.

I don't deny that evidence shows that to be so.

I don't deny that pollution is a problem. Bloody Hell, it's been a problem for hundreds of years. We were one of the worst for it in the early days.
Likely it will get worse as developing countries grow.

What I do deny is that we are supposed to be responsible for all this change on a world that changes all the time. The scientists who find that may be this is wrong leave the research, distancing themselves from it. But their names are not taken off, leaving a growing list of scientists in 'consensus'.

We have had reliable instruments to make measurements of this planet for a relative nanosecond, and all of a sudden it's 'STOP!'.

Crying about polar bears and such like. Come on. A thorn scrapes my eye to see the shots and commentary from Attenborough but I believe it is nature doing it's thing. Funny how the less 'cute' wildlife isn't so prevalent on these shows.

I don't buy the whole 'it's us' thing, that's all.
Sticking to what I'm good at.

Yeah, and the implication is that it's just the US that's doing it, while most of the pollution comes from the rest of the planet.
How hard can this be?

Can you cite your source?

America still accounts from some 25% of the world population's output of CO2 emissions, plus a healthy percentage of other pollution. Yes, we are far cleaner than we were, but in total we're still right at the top. Yes, developing countries will grow and their output will rise, but I don't see us dropping any time soon. That's an amazing number for a country with such a small percentage of the world's population.

for all this change on a world that changes all the time.

A boat moves on the ocean. The people in the boat all move to one side, and water comes in over the beam. Who's responsible for the boat sinking, the ocean or the people on the boat?

The scientists who find that may be this is wrong leave
the research, distancing themselves from it. But their
names are not taken off, leaving a growing list of scientists
in 'consensus'.

Who, specifically?

We have had reliable instruments to make measurements
of this planet for a relative nanosecond, and all of a
sudden it's 'STOP!'.

The information I heard is that we have pretty accurate average temperature readings for periods of time going back thousands of years, and this last century's temp rise is astounding relative to any other.

this thing

I believe that the issue here is that the consensous of
scientists believe that man's 21st century byproducts
are rabidly accellerating the natural change.

How the hell can you apply consent to science?

It's not possible...

You can have a concessus that says Ford Motor company produces an inferior product or that Jimmy's school has an ineffective reading program...

Mans 21st century byproducts are in large part process regurgitation's of existing materials collected from here and there. The earth in all it's massiveness has more than enough ability to absorb what little we've thrown at it. We may have the ability to make our own little slice of the world nasty and unlivable.... (I can't find to many spots like this in the US), but the earth will recover.

I might not be able to live at Chernobyl, but that hasn't stopped it from becoming a paradise for invasive plants and other species. Just because it's not up to your standards of living don't really mean the planets on it's way down the tubes does it?

Where's your argument? Got another song quote or link to follow?

Can you site your source? We have only been measuring temperature for a short period of time. The rest is theory.

I should clarify something, I agree that man made global warming is a possibility, even though I don't think it is likely given everything else the earth has survived. I do believe that each person has a responsibility to conserve resources as much as possible. I also believe that carbon credits are a farce.

Sure, I can site my sources. Antarctica and New York. Oh, wait, you meant cite. Sure. How about the Goddard Institute for Space Studies and US Department of Energy.

Did you forget? You were going to cite your your source for your position that most of the pollution comes from the rest of the planet, not the US.

Well, as long as you believe it, that makes it true!! :^)

Oh, so you heard that? Must be true! Thousands of years??? You mean I could look at the high and low temperatures in Syria approximately 100 AD? In Egypt at about 1000 BC? Where?

C'mon. Being in retail you can appreciate good marketing,
can't you? :-)

Now that is the gospel truth!!
There is no truth anymore. Only assertions. The internet world has no interest in truth, only vindication for preconceived assumptions.

Yes, you can look at global temperatures based on the ice core samples taken in Antarctica, as one example. Just because there wasn't a USGS weatherman looking at a thermometer and jotting the numbers down in Sascrit (sp?) doesn't mean we can't figure out what was happening. You don't need to have a meter on a speaker line 24/7 to know when your customer's kid overdrove the amp and toasted the woofer cone.

Here's an article:

[Link: icr.org]

But, it's not science because it's put out by young earth scientists, right?

(Whoops, there's an MIT scientist's study mixed in there as well. Cancel my above comment.)

[Link: ncpa.org] --- Why aren't all scientists in agreement (the "consensus" we hear about) according to this information??

[Link: americanpolicy.org] --- Is it no longer science because it is contrary to what we commonly hear through the media?

[Link: nationalcenter.org] --- some of the "facts" we hear are not facts at all?

[Link: cato.org] --- are we using the right portions of this century when modeling temperature changes vs. carbon dioxide changes?

[Link: npr.org] --- all these are scientists looking over data, sometimes millions of samples. The top of the story properly indicates that the world view often dictates the results of the "study".

[Link: science.nasa.gov] --- the temperatures over the past two decades may be dropping slightly.

[Link: heartland.org] --- this is written by Richard S. Lindzen, the Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Science at MIT.

Conclusions in the above article? "...nonscientists generally do not want to bother with understanding the science. Claims of consensus relieve policy types, environmental advocates, and politicians of any need to do so. Such claims also serve to intimidate the public and even scientists--especially those outside the area of climate dynamics."

"...there is a clear attempt to establish truth not by scientific methods but by perpetual repetition."


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, all you scientists out there, who are you going to believe? Just keep on believing what you want to believe, or read more with an open mind? Who is right? If we collect links to bona fide scientists' studies which support one side or the other, if we get more links to one side, does that mean they are all right and the other side is wrong?

Is it not correct to say that there is NO consensus, but instead that there is HEATED DEBATE??

The Institute for Creation Research? I'm happy to review anything you want to put in front of me that does not involve me changing my faith.

Did you forget your own post? Last I checked 75 was larger than 25 although I don't believe the 25% either. You've obviously made up your mind that the US is responsible for global warming and it couldn't possibly be due to normal solar activity. I guess you better buy some carbon credits.

Look at my post just above your previous one.

Hey, you may have to change your faith! Faith from one environmental belief system to another!! Faith isn't really so bad, is it?
