Re: Calling ThingsChange and other members of the Flat Earth Society
so far at least I don't see anything approaching the Institute for Creation Research or the Discovery Institute financed by the energy companies.
Perhaps not a stand alone institute like ICR, but they are co-opting a lot of existing right-wing think tanks to the same end. Check out this link to see just who they are funding and their affiliations:
*** Your comments about carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide are also patently ridiculous. ***
Carbon monoxide does convert thru natural processes to carbon dioxide.
The temperature of the earth has been studied over 200 years and show the temps have increased about 1 degree C.
The article ***Sun's warming influence 'under-estimated'*** referenced below supports global warming was already a factor before the greenhouse gases of the industrial revolution.
The increases from the evidence are suggestive that global warming are due to increases in solar activities and a decrease in low cloud cover causing less solar radiation to be reflected from the earth.

Carbon monoxide is created when carbon-containing fuels are burned incompletely. Through natural processes in the atmosphere, it is eventually oxidized to carbon dioxide. Carbon monoxide concentrations are both short-lived in the atmosphere and spatially variable.
Various conbinations of small-scale, localized solar and wind energy production for home-owners would castrate their unholy enterprise.
Look for corporate interests to oppose subsidies and compensatory reimbursemnt for local power generation ...the best approach to liberate the common man from dependency on corporate profiteering from energy.
Virtually unaninimous support among scientists for Gore's movie
Nice misleading headline !!! You should work for NY Times. I read your link. It's about a survey of 100 scientists of mixed views. Only the like-minded fans that went to see Gore's movie were in agreement. That's 19 of the 100 (the remainder were not polled, and that's irrelavent anyway).'Liberalism is a mental disorder' - Michael Savage
*****...which has absolutely no bearing on the fact that these gases are undeniably amplifying any purported effects of solar radiation. *****
No, Human contributions to all the greenhouse gases including water vapor is only .28% of the greenhouse effect. Whats .28% of 1 degree (mans contributions) to greenhouse gases truthfully is not amplifying global warming (mans contributions are really meaningless). The only real change amplifying global warming is water vapor.
Anthropogenic (man-made) CO2 contributions cause only about 0.117% of Earth's greenhouse effect, (factoring in water vapor). This is insignificant!
Adding up all anthropogenic greenhouse sources, the total human contribution to the greenhouse effect is around 0.28% (factoring in water vapor).
" I can only see one element of the climate system capable of generating these fast, global changes, that is, changes in the tropical atmosphere leading to changes in the inventory of the earth's most powerful greenhouse gas-- water vapor. "

Anthropogenic Global Warming Deniers - Come the Fuck On!

quote:The drafting of such reports and statements involves many opportunities for comment, criticism, and revision, and it is not likely that they would diverge greatly from the opinions of the societies' members. Nevertheless, they might downplay legitimate dissenting opinions. That hypothesis was tested by analyzing 928 abstracts, published in refereed scientific journals between 1993 and 2003, and listed in the ISI database with the keywords "climate change" (9).
The 928 papers were divided into six categories: explicit endorsement of the consensus position, evaluation of impacts, mitigation proposals, methods, paleoclimate analysis, and rejection of the consensus position. Of all the papers, 75% fell into the first three categories, either explicitly or implicitly accepting the consensus view; 25% dealt with methods or paleoclimate, taking no position on current anthropogenic climate change. Remarkably, none of the papers disagreed with the consensus position.
Admittedly, authors evaluating impacts, developing methods, or studying paleoclimatic change might believe that current climate change is natural. However, none of these papers argued that point.
quote:A notable story of recent months should have been the evidence pouring in from all sides to cast doubts on the idea that the world is inexorably heating up. The proponents of man-made global warming have become so rattled by how the forecasts of their computer models are being contradicted by the data that some are rushing to modify the thesis.
Interesting article. In many ways, certain 'environmentalists' exhibit the same behaviour as religious fundamentalists whereby they readily accept and publicise any evidence supporting their theory while ignoring/discarding any evidence that goes against it.
My grandad grew up in the shadow of Snowdon and he used to tell us of years when there was hardly any snow at the peak in mid March. Of course there was no man-made warming to blame back then and people just accepted that natural variation is just that. O tempora, o mores!
"We must respect the law, not let it blind us away from the basic principles of fairness, justice and freedom"
Who cares if global warming is made up. The earth, your home could use less trash and waste. If made up it has people working towards something good. BTW, I did not read one post in this thread. I just thought I would thrown my dollar.People are not stupid, religion is.
If made up it has people working towards something good.
It also has governments taking away our freedoms and our money in the name of 'something good'."We must respect the law, not let it blind us away from the basic principles of fairness, justice and freedom"
