Finally, a voice of reason here?

If you think that the weather is now cooling, then you have to acknowledge that for the past 25 to 100 years that it has been warming.

And, if you think that these storms and other recent events are so extreme because of global warming, then how do you explain all of the records that still remain on the record books from decades past (some even back to the turn of the 19th century?

No, one can't have it both ways.

Rather, let's look at weather for what the most recent events (those mentioned above and others) - the day to day change in the condition of the atmosphere. For climate change, one has to look to scales of tens of thousand years and longer (really a lot longer). And, this period is far longer then most would acknowledge spans known human history or existence.

  • I keep saying - of course there is global warming. That is why we can live in places like Chicago, New York, Bangor Maine, Detroit, Fargo, Raleigh, Topeka,..............because, if there wasn't global warming, we would still have glaciers covering half our country. The warming just wasn't caused by MAN! It is a natural cycle of our planet.

  • There have been several periods of global warming and cooling over our known history of the world. some were extreme(ice age) and some were less extreme..during the medival times the world was in a cool period and warmed up right before the enlightenment period...ppl were able to provide for their needs easier and had more time for academic pursuits.

    Its all a natural pattern..perhaps we have made it a little worse but I don't believe that it is all man caused...since it has been happening since before the industrial revolution and the progreession of man.

  • I just want one of them to explain to me, that if Global Warming is causing Global Cooling and if we are causing global warming with our pollutants then... What pollutants caused the Ice Age 2.4 BILLION years ago?

  • "What pollutants caused the Ice Age 2.4 BILLION years ago?"

    One of the big culprits (though pollutants are not thought to be the only cause) would be volcanoes.

    Volcanoes still are a big culprit actually - and grossly overlooked by the public.

    In 2004 Mt. St. Helens just gurgled a bit for a two weeks (nothing big, just letting off some steam). In that two weeks it released more greenhouse gasses and pollutants than all the cars in the whole world for the last 100 years.

  • so if volcanos are doing that much damage all on their own I fail to see how man does any real damage.We could all just stop driving go back to horse and buggy (wait horses fart and breathe) and it really would not make much of a difference if a volcano starts to simmer up.All ridculous a scam for money and agenda but some are so engulfed its like a religion.

    Working off of this logic, if we can expect natural occurrences to outweigh our impact on the planet, what exactly will legislation that punishes polluters do to change the effects of natural occurrences?  It won't.  It is an anomaly that will have a minimal effect on our climate.  It is cost prohibitive to impose penalties on industries that our nation depends on for things like food, heat, electricity, transportation, etc.  Carbon credits are just another way for some to make money.

  • When Krakatoa erupted, it changed the weather patterns worldwide for months, if not years. Europe, Africa, Asia, the Americas, and Australia were all affected.

    Exactly. You can not claim that humans are the main cause for global warming like the Green Movement is doing. I mean hell dinosaurs produced more green house gasses than Humans. The Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states: it is a greater than a 90 percent certainty that emissions of heat-trapping gases from human activities have caused “most of the observed increase in globally averaged temperatures since the mid-20th century.”
    So they need to admit that NATURAL causes within the earth itself causes "GW" in which causes "GC" which would make it a completely natural effect that does not need to be legislated.

  • Exactly if a volcano does that much damage and all of our natural occuring events do then wth?? Its a bunch of bunk for a certain agenda and certain pockets to be filled.

    I think that would be when MAN discovered how to make fire.
