    When is Global Warming going to start again?

    Three consecutive “Beasts From The East” caused by super-cold Arctic air have resulted in 48,000 non-heat-related deaths in the UK alone, as the 2017/18 Northern Hemisphere mega-winter rages on well into spring.

    Three consecutive “Beasts From The East” caused by super-cold Arctic air have resulted in 48,000 non-heat-related deaths in the UK alone, as the 2017/18 Northern Hemisphere mega-winter rages on well into spring. Record cold and snowfall events in the Northern America, Asia, abnormal cold/snow in Japan, Southeast Asia, Italy, Morocco, Sahara desert the list goes on. All this has been predicted by true climate scientists, who forecast an even harsher winter for 2018/19.

  • Would any climate scientists lose their job if there was no global warming?

    Best answer: Congress has blocked all attempts to impose a carbon tax for the last 20 years. If stopping carbon taxes didn't put them out of work, neither would a lack of warming. They need to produce weather reports and to be able to determine what crops to grow, where.

  • Why would it be a bad thing if, somehow, it could be shown that humans are not causing Earth to warm?

    Best answer: That conclusion would ignore centuries of science, but as a thought exercise the answer would be; No, it would not be a bad thing. We would simply refocus on moving our infrastructure to higher ground and come up with a plan to cope with the influx of climate refugees, instead of trying to prevent the worst... show more
    Best answer: That conclusion would ignore centuries of science, but as a thought exercise the answer would be; No, it would not be a bad thing. We would simply refocus on moving our infrastructure to higher ground and come up with a plan to cope with the influx of climate refugees, instead of trying to prevent the worst effects, by severely reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

    But this is not the way deniers deal with it, they have been claiming that switching to renewable energy is crazy, a bit like jumping of a roof. A thought process so illogical that normal people have a hard time following it.

    "If we jump off this roof, it's hard to imagine how much damage would be done to us"!
    (we could take the stairs)

    "I can't believe you're suggesting we just jump off this roof!"
    (Nobody is suggesting that- there's an elevator right over there)

    "Why are you people so unrealistic! Jumping off this roof is such a stupid idea"
    (there's an escalator the next floor down. We could use that)

    "I cannot understand why you people are insisting we jump off this roof!"
    (you're literally standing next to a fire escape).

  • Are Republicans more persuasive than scientists on global warming?

    Best answer: No, it is true scientists who are getting the upper hand, finally. Maybe it is that those who are more intelligent can see the scam no matter what their political affiliation is.

    Quote by Will Happer, Princeton University physicist, former Director of Energy Research at the Department of Energy: “I had the privilege of being fired by Al Gore, since I refused to go along with his alarmism....I have spent a long research career studying physics that is closely related to the greenhouse effect....Fears about man-made global warming are unwarranted and are not based on good science. The earth's climate is changing now, as it always has. There is no evidence that the changes differ in any qualitative way from those of the past.”

    Now do you see any party affiliation with Happer? But we do know Al Gore's party affiliation. So are we to assume that Al Gore is the scientist and Will Happer is the politician? If you ever saw Happer, you would know that he is not a great orator. He is not very good at presenting science to the public. But he is great at presenting logic and facts.

    Quote by Al Gore, former U.S. vice president, and large CO2 producer: "I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis."

    So now you see what side of the issue Al Gore is on. And notice he is an admitted liar. If anyone would listen to what he says it would be due to lack of intelligence rather than party affiliation. And look what so called scientists agree with Gore. Bill Nye, a failed low level Mechanical Engineer. Jimmy Hansen who has been caught corrupting figures. That is definitely NOT real science.

    So the question is not a legitimate one. It supposedly pits party affiliation against non-partisan scientists. Ha! Ha! That is not happening in this question.

    A better question (and more truthful.) would be, "Who is more persuasive, crooked scam artists and ignorant people on one side or intelligent people and true scientists on the other side?"

    Best answer: Well, I think there is no doubt that we are seeing some very unusual changes ...

    Of course, no one can argue that a specific warmer-than-usual winter is evidence of climate change, but in Alaska this recent event is certainly part of a trend that's been happening for decades now.

    In my own part of the world, Ireland and the UK had one of the worst winters for snow fall. We re now experiencing some of the warmest temperatures in April.

    Now, I think this is exactly the sort of weirding of weather that climatologists have been warning us about. And although we can't look at specific events as proof of our changing climate, eventually the number of weird outliers might be sufficient to statistically prove it ...

    Best answer: None of the above.

    The lack of science and its replacement with politics is the issue. We know from the ClimateGate emails how "scientists" leant on journal editors or even got them replaced if they would not toe the line with their propaganda. We know some of the tricks they used to stifle replies from other scientists. (E.g. collude with the journal so that a sceptical article is delayed until you can whip us a convincing sounding rebuttal then publish both consecutively thus indicating that the rebuttal was obvious. This has the advantage that if you respond to the rebuttal then those authors will get the last word.)

    We have seen how some claim that the "science is settled". That is b*ll*cks - to use a technical term. It certainly is not science. We are still not sure about gravity - do we need dark matter or not?

    Then we have the groupthink. How the data is constantly being refined as time passes and every "refinement" results in a greater warming slope. Then we have the newspeak. Does "climate change" mean any change in climate or just man-made ones? If it means just anthropogenic climate change then what do you call the combination of both man-made and non-manmade climate change?

    All this based on such a shortage of data. If you plot the world's temperature on two sheets of paper (A4/Letter Size) then the last tenth of a millimetre - the thickness f the paper - represents a million years. So, you look at the last one thousandth of that then put a line through the points. How close to reality is that going to be?

    Best answer: The short answer would be "something like North Korea". But scratch the surface a bit and I think you realize they clearly do not go far enough. Many of their people still have access to luxury goods like smartphones, not to mention electricity and enough to eat.

    The agenda that I, and I think most people really have -- an ideal had since we were children imagining our futures -- is of course much more beautiful. It is with so much fondness that we dream of the day when no more than a dozen or so elites have 100% of power, wealth, and pleasure. And I, and everyone I know, has pretty much nothing -- toiling away in tedious manual labor without so much as a t-shirt to our names, breaking our backs for the pure benefit of some elite strangers I've never met. I seriously cannot WAIT for this -- I mean it's just a natural goal, a fundamental human instinct, isn't it? Because what other possible justification could there be for my tendency to trust decades of careful, expert research while reserving a bit of skepticism for the validity of some YouTube videos or parroted, empty talking points. It's all for the agenda!

    Best answer: It is strange that the people from the less developed countries want to migrate to developed countries. That would seem to imply that they think that life in a developed country is preferable.

    Many of those people already live in a country where they are close to nature and do not have access to motor cars etc. Why do they want to move?

    Why are people not leaving the USA in droves to live in a place where they will earn about a dollar a day? Can't they see the health benefits? The advantages of communing with nature. No car to repair, no lavatory to clean, fresh food - as long as you don't mind growing it and killing it yourself. What is not to like?

    A better plan would have been to have had the industrial Revolution earlier so that we had ironed all the wrinkles out of it by now.

    Best answer: The Sun's magetosphere is immensely powerful. One solar flare could cripple the electric grids all over the Earth. As the magnetic field of the Sun cycles through polarity at regular intervals (Kano listed some of the intervals), sometimes before the shift of poles, the magnetic fields in the sun get all tangled and push their way to the surface as sun spots. These magnetic disturbances seem to have an effect on our temperatures. In periods when there are no sun spots, the climate is generally cooler than periods with more sun spots. This may be due to increased solar emissions during high sunspots but it may also be due to the effects of the magnetic disturbances IMO. The cosmic ray theory suggests that they may produce clouds. Some clouds tend to cool whereas others lead to warming. I think we are getting better at understanding the effects but they are very complicated and require immense computing power as well as more data that we possess.
