Good news is that the Antarctic is getting record highs for sea ice and the Arctic ice is up on previous years :up:

Yeah, there's no doubt we're contributing to global warming. But like you said, there are record highs for sea ice right now and these things fluctuate. We could easily just be in another normal climate cycle. Another ice age could happen any time. The world will go on doing its thing, with or without us...

Tomorrow's forecast calls for a dusting of snow with a chance of Ice Age. :dork:

I know right!

When I say any time, I'm talking within a few thousand years, which in the grand scheme of time, isn't that much...

That's like saying you can keep yourself cooler in the summer by leaving your refrigerator door open. Sure, you might feel a bit of momentary relief by letting the cool air from the fridge drift around your skin, but overall the fridge is generating more heat through the back of the unit heating up your house more than before.

Climate change is happening, and it's getting significantly warmer, faster, at an increasingly faster rate, and it is due to human intervention. What brief sense of cooling that you may think you feel is caused by more extreme weather conditions fluctuating as the global average temperature increases. What you're saying about highs of sea ice is untrue, huge swaths of ice shelves have collapsed in recent years and they aren't being replaced. Any thickening of ice is caused by higher amounts of precipitation as more water is being heated and evaporated in other parts of the world and freezing in the arctics.


That documentary "Chasing Ice" is on Netflix. It's a good watch for anyone interested.

All I need to see is some asshole bury a 30FT pole into solid ice and come back a year and the fucking thing is laying on its side because 30FT thick of ice has melted in a year. See you all in hell.

Some people believe those who live in colder climates have a higher IQ because it took more intelligence to survive natural selection in those conditions.

Is it nice and toasty in Texas today? :clownboat:

adapting to or reduction of which will be made vastly more difficult due to perma-'austerity', widening inequality and the corporate capture of regulatory institutions., i.e. ever-bleaker capitalism

and so on...

nifty article explaining the 3% 'contrarian' claims about global warming:

http://www.theguardian.com/environment/ ... ian-papers

Quote:
There is a 97% expert consensus on a cohesive theory that’s overwhelmingly supported by the scientific evidence, but the 2–3% of papers that reject that consensus are all over the map, even contradicting each other. The one thing they seem to have in common is methodological flaws like cherry picking, curve fitting, ignoring inconvenient data, and disregarding known physics.

When preaching to the choir, of course not. But you'll be surprised by the number of conservative dumb fuck climate-change deniers out there.

People should have to take a test before they can reproduce.

Climate scientists this week expressed alarm after “unprecedented” data showed the Northern Hemisphere Jet Stream crossing the Equator.

In a column on Tuesday, environmental blogger Robert Scribbler noted that the Northern Hemisphere Jet Stream had merged with the Southern Hemisphere Jet Stream.

“It’s the very picture of weather weirding due to climate change. Something that would absolutely not happen in a normal world,” he wrote. “Something, that if it continues, basically threatens seasonal integrity.”
...

“That’s bad news for seasonality,” he continued. “You get this weather-destabilizing and extreme weather generating mixing of seasons that is all part of a very difficult to deal with ‘Death of Winter’ type scenario.”
University of Ottawa climate scientist Paul Beckwith called the new behavior “unprecedented.”

“Our climate system behaviour continues to behave in new and scary ways that we have never anticipated, or seen before,” Beckwith observed. “Welcome to climate chaos. We must declare a global climate emergency.”

In a YouTube video, Beckwith said that the jet stream behavior signaled “massive hits to the food supply” and “massive geopolitical unrest.”
