  • "The March 16, 2009 report by Dr. Alan Carlin says among other things -- that “As of the best information we currently have, the GHG/CO2 hypothesis as to the cause of global warming, which this Draft TSD supports, is currently an invalid hypothesis from a scientific viewpoint because it fails a number of critical comparisons with available observable data. Any one of these failings should be enough to invalidate the hypothesis; the breadth of these failings leaves no other possible conclusion based on current data.”

  • Global warming is a catch all term for climate change. It can consist of rapid highs and insane lows.

    Regardless, I chose less pollution in my community. If that saves the planet some, that's great. I just don't want coal ash in my drinking water.

  • MYTH: Recent cold winters and cool summers don’t feel like global warming to me.


    FACT: While different pockets of the country have experienced some cold winters here and there, the overall trend is warmer winters.


     


     Measurements show that over the last century the Earth’s climate has warmed overall, in all seasons, and in most regions. Climate skeptics mislead the public when they claim that the winter of 2003–2004 was the coldest ever in the northeastern United States. That winter was only the 33rd coldest in the region since records began in 1896. Furthermore, a single year of cold weather in one region of the globe is not an indication of a trend in the global climate, which refers to a long-term average over the entire planet.

  • ... Probably why Al Gore won't debate Christopher Monckton ... to mention another Question here on CafeMom.

    It WAS a clever trick to re-label "global warming" as "climate change" when reality started to reveal the hoax.

    It would be super-helpful if people would keep themselves thinking clearly, if they would separate "global warming" from "pollution".
    Too much of the time those who point out the falsehood of global warming are accused of apathy about pollution. Not true ... they are actually keeping their eye on the ball, while global warming is upstaging real pollution. Carbon dioxide is NOT a pollutant (despite the UN's goofy announcement), so some of us would like the world science focus to get back to handling REAL toxins.

  • Increased snow fall is an effect of global warming. It's not as simple as some people think, global warming doesn't mean we're all going to be wearing shorts in January.

  • It is 25 below with windchill here and on July 4th this past summer we had to wear jackets to enjoy the fireworks. We only had to run the air conditioner about 5 times all summer. I am thinking where we live in Iowa doesn't know we are having global warming.lol
