• Global average temperatures (The instrumental record). Have there been any adjustments that were not reasonable?

    It is often claimed here, that some or all of the warming, can be explained by adjustments to the instrumental record.

If so, then specifically, which adjustments; what was the reason for each adjustment and why... show more

    Best answer: The Sun controls the Earth's Climate and it naturally goes through cycles that will warm the Earth and cycles that will cool the Planet. At the moment it is going through a cooling cycle called a Solar Grand Minimum and this particular minimum will be a longer and more intense than usual.

    Planetary mechanics is the study of orbiting celestial bodies past and present and how their movements can affect the Earth’s climate. When the orbits of the giant planets in our solar system fall into the same quadrant their gravitational pulls can affect the Sun’s activity level. The Sun operates in 360 year cycles composed of Regular Oscillations, followed by a Grand Solar Maximum, followed by a Grand Solar Minimum.
    This totally predictable 360 year cycle has resulted in the Oort, Sporer, Maunder, Dalton and other unnamed Minimums within the past two millennia.

    Presently, the Sun is entering into a predicted Maunder minimum like cycle that will cool the Earth for the next 30 or so years. Humans burning of fossil fuels has no effect on the Earth's climate, CO2 is an innocent victim convicted by uninformed, slur mongering alarmists.

  • How much more does it cost to generate electricity without emitting CO2?
  • Why is life on Earth so vicious?

    Best answer: One reason is because every species on Earth, humans included, will reproduce until their population exceeds the resources needed to sustain it (food, space, etc.) unless something else trims its numbers. That results in competition that ends in some surviving and others dying - an evolutionary war. ----- -----... show more
    Best answer: One reason is because every species on Earth, humans included, will reproduce until their population exceeds the resources needed to sustain it (food, space, etc.) unless something else trims its numbers.
    That results in competition that ends in some surviving and others dying - an evolutionary war.
    ----- ----- -----
    btw, in your example, herbivores eat (kill) plants.
    Yes, I agree that Earth is hell. Humans and every other species on Earth suffer from famine, attacks from their own and other species, physical mutations, diseases, random accidents, extremes of environment, injuries, natural disasters etc. Every organism lives on the brink of death.

  • Minnesota Governor issues Executive Order due to late spring affecting planting crops. Isn’t this a sign of Global Cooling?

    Best answer: Although I pretty much disagree with just about everything you say, Solar Wind, I know you're not stupid. I know, full well, that you don't honestly believe that a late spring in Minnesota, a cold winter across Europe, and snow in northern France is proof of an all-encompassing global cooling trend.

    Best answer: Although I pretty much disagree with just about everything you say, Solar Wind, I know you're not stupid. I know, full well, that you don't honestly believe that a late spring in Minnesota, a cold winter across Europe, and snow in northern France is proof of an all-encompassing global cooling trend. I have to assume, therefore, that you're having a laugh by trolling us 'Alarmists' to see how we respond. I'm not going to take the bait.

    As you well know, the Solar Minimum is predicted to last at least 50 years based on previous experience, and could potentially last for 200 years. So what's your rush? If you're correct we'll see the cooling trend over the next decade or two. And then you'll be able to gloat and tell us how you were right and we were wrong.

    But trying to establish a climatic trend on the basis of 'what happened in five months in 2018 in some parts of the world' is not very scientific. If we 'Alarmists' did that (some parts of Ireland, for example, had the warmest and driest April on record) you'd be the first person out of the starting blocks telling us that a bit of Ireland does not represent the globe, nor does it represent anything other than 'weather' rather than 'climate'.

    We'll see what happens over the next few decades. What's your hurry to jump to a conclusion?

    Best answer: Yes, of course. The water is drawn out of the ground with a pump, which is true whether you actually have a pump at your house or if you have city water as out of the ground is where city water towers get their water from. Water pumps are powered by electricity, which is the result of burning some fuel down at the electrical plant. Whether that fuel is a fossil fuel or nuclear, it results in pollution. Also, if you're taking a shower that uses hot water, that water is heated by a hot water heater that is fueled by either gas or electricity. Again, either way, it creates pollution. Finally, you're using soap and detergents in that shower, turning the water into what's called "gray water," which then goes down the drain to your septic tank or to the city sewer to be processed as gray water is polluted water.

    Best answer: Science is never settled. Only religions are settled and some religions aren't even that settled. I have noticed lately that the Catholic religion, for example, seems to bend with the wind.
    I notice one alarmist gave the crack pot answer that it would increase by 2 degrees and he thought that the warming in the last 100 years which he claimed to be 2 degrees was good evidence. There are two problems with this. One are we talking Fahrenheit and two is it man caused and three (well there is more than just 2) did it really warm two degrees. This is the kind of science you get from alarmists but at least he answered your question so he does deserve some credit. Most alarmists seem to recognize that you can't really predict the effects of an additional 100 ppmV but that doesn't stop them from parroting all sorts of catastrophic predictions.

    Mostly all you get from them is insulting labels such as denier, crack pot conspiracy theories that Exxon Mobil is trying to destroy the planet, and cracks about Trump and or Fox News.
