Look objectively at climate change

December 3, 2013

Two scientific studies that nearly crossed paths on the way to publication by the National Academy of Sciences raise serious questions about climate change - and the liberal knee-jerk reaction that......

Once again for the brain dead. If you are in it for the money, you are one of the clowns who are denying climate change.

Happy 25th of December Kozy. Make sure you put up a Christmas Tree, because that really gets the true believers PO'ed. :>)

I guess we have reached a point where we let Donald talk to himself. He refuses to believe the truth and can only debate by calling names...as for me, no more responding to him.

But, I will not stop praying. Merry Christmas, Donald.

"5 years ago Monday, Al Gore predicted the North Pole would have no ice within 5 years." Al Gore is not a climate Scientist. I could fill this board with crack pot saying from the right 'Legitimate Rape' and such, and it would not change the fact that November was the hottest month on record.

Keep that climate "science" and the ridiculous notion that humans trump nature coming!

Last month was the warmest November since modern temperature record keeping began in 1880, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced today in its latest State of the Climate report, which summarizes climate-related news from around the world.

With a combined land and ocean surface temperature of 56.6 degrees Fahrenheit, November 2013 also was the 345th consecutive month – and the 37th November in a row – with a global temperature higher than the 20th century average, the NOAA report added.

Higher-than-average monthly temperatures were reported on nearly every continent around the world, including much of Europe and Asia, coastal Africa, Central America and central South America, as well as in the North Atlantic Ocean, southwest Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean.

Just keep that bible thumping 16th Century Science coming and you can reverse this trend.

So from one year to the next the entire trend has reversed? You people will cling to any line to support your war on Science. You trust when some one tells you that a satellite shows there is a little more ice here or there, but you reject all the scientific data that shows that Global Warming is real. You claim that increases in Methane is not caused by man, while you eat your Big Mac at McDonald's. You actually are so ignorant that you even go as far as to suggest that the last Ice Age occurred less than 5,000 years ago. No amount of Science will ever change your ignorant beliefs.

"So if we study facts beyond the silly carbon dating guesses, the ice age began after the great flood, most likely about 2250BC and lasted about 200 years." I see you have some of that fancy 16th Century science working for you.

Read the facts. In October 2013, the European Space Agency satellite CryoSat measured 2,160 square miles (9,000 cubic kilometers) of sea ice on the Arctic Ocean, said an ESA news release Monday. At the same time of year in 2012, it measured just 1,440 square miles (6,000 cubic kilometers) -- a record low.

Oh, you say since the 1930s...at most 83 years...really. Well, the great flood happened before that.

Now, when was the ice age?

Let me see, it has gone from the lowest on record to the 6th lowest and you're called a name? Now when did "they" begin keeping records...before or after the flood?

Yoou really need to start reading the entire story instead of jumping on one or two sentences that may seem like things are going your way.

“The Arctic caught a break, if you will, in 2013,” said Martin Jefferies, the University of Alaska geophysicist who edited the report card, at the AGU conference. “But one year doesn’t change the long-term trend toward a warmer Arctic.”

Just heard on NBC news that this November was the hottest month on record since records began being kept in 1880. The evidence continues to build.

The so-called Medieval Warm Period (MWP), a 400-year span from about 950 to 1220 A.D. when the Vikings colonized Greenland, was relatively balmy by the standards of the past 2,000 years, leading some to argue that the global warming we’re now experiencing isn’t that big a deal. But a new report in the journal Geology argues that the MWP wasn’t all that warm after all — and certainly not as warm as the climate is today.

According to William D’Andrea of Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and his co-authors, summer temperatures in the Svalbard Archipelago, a group of islands in the Arctic Ocean about 400 miles north of Norway, have been between 3.6°F and 4.5°F higher over the past 25 years, on average, than the summers the Vikings enjoyed.

notSocialist, "The Medieval Warming period IS a fact. It IS science." A perfect example of a right wing scientific analysis using factless fantasy.. From ossfoundation.us Was the earth warmer during the 'Medieval Warm Period' than now? No. Regional temperatures do not represent the global temperature. The Medieval Warm Period (MWP) temperature graphs that people use to claim otherwise, do not represent the global average temperature.

If it's cold it's global warming. If it's hot it's global warming. If it snows it's global warming. If it doesn't snow it's global warming. If there is a hurricane it's global warming. If there isn't a hurricane it's global warming. Every whether event is attributed to global warming by the "science" behind it. I need no further proof that it's complete BS even if A LOT of other proof exists.

People who post stuff without doing any research into who they are posting about just continue to prove me correct. "Dr. Judith Curry, Chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech, has now taken the crown as the most debunked person on the science blogosphere, which is quite a feat considering the competition. But she invites debunking by her tendency to make scientific-sounding pronouncements without having actually read the relevant literature, and then backing down the minute she is challenged by someone who has or who has actually contributed to that literature."

ha ha Ha ha ha, Judith Curry is a climatologist at Georgia Tech, infamous for flirting with the denier community on the basis that some of them have "good ideas" and can't get their contrarian papers published. For instance, she has posted on Anthony Watts' blog, as well as Steve McIntyre's Climate Audit. She has further embarrassed herself (and her university) by using refuted denier talking points and defending the Wegman Report, eventually admitting she hadn't even read it in the first place. This and other shenanigans led Tamino of Open Mind to say, "Judith, your credibility is now below zero." In short, she's the Richard Lindzen of the South. Or maybe the Roy Spencer of Georgia, take your pick.

Some nonexpert opponents of global warming have made much of a number of e-mails written and circulated among a handful of climate scientists that they see as evidence of bias toward global warming. But unless this group is willing to argue from this small (and questionable) sample to the general unreliability of climate science as a discipline, they have no alternative but to accept the consensus view of climate scientists that these e-mails do not undermine the core result of global warming.

Where do scientific experts come from? Answer according to some so called experts: "Once I was a tadpole beginning to begin, And then I was a frog with my tail tucked in; Then I was a monkey hanging from a free, And now I'm a professor with a PHD. Like I am going to believe anything those so called experts tell me!!
