Global Warming Revisited

Is it time to revisit the claims of global warming / climate change?

I think it's time.

President Obama called skeptics (like me) of global climate change as those of believe in a flat earth.

The following is just one of several reports I have seen online. I have seen nothing in the mainstream media reporting on these current studies.

What do you think?

The McKitrick paper has not been reported in the "mainstream media" because the scientific community has found the paper to be full of flaws and not telling the whole story.

Posting an Andrew Bolt article should be deemed a bannable offense.

For those unfamiliar, Bolt is one of the most well known journalists in Australia, is a known bigot with a severe victim complex (despite being very affluent) and has a political talk show on TV which is essentially a propaganda broadcast for the ruling Liberal Party.

I don't know you guys, I don't think there's a such thing as Global Warming. Wisconsin has had both one of the coolest Winters and Summers this year.

Derpe der!

i agree.

it's quite possible it's even worse than we have imagined, and we've already crossed the point of no return.

the real question is how do we manage climate change.

the Arctic begs to disagree with you.

i am, however, loving the pleasant summer we've had in DC, though this week the steambath seems to have returned.

It's not an all or none issue, elevate. Perhaps it's not fully explained yet, and the human effect hasn't been clearly defined, and to me that's not an unreasonable stance.

Independent of the perils of global warming, it should be an individual's responsibility not to eff up the earth for future generations. But that's just me. Go biodiesel!

It's always hilarious when somebody posts an article "proving" something, and the article is written by a foreign journalist in a foreign paper that they know nothing about. Years ago we used to have the dreck of Mark Steyn copied and pasted here by people who were not Canadian and not familiar with his writings and stances. Then every once in a while you have somebody linking to the likes of the Daily Mail or some similar rag.

Irvine, that's offensive. I don't know why, but it's offensive.

One can believe in God and still want strong environmental controls.

Also - as I've said before - solar power will cure almost all of the planet's ills in the next few decades...

Here's the thing. Even if you don't believe that human activity is causing climate change, why would you not support initiatives to clean up the environment? What is bad about trying to keep our planet clean and healthy for future generations?
