      Except the planet is warming overall, just not everywhere at the same time. Temperature extremes on both ends were completely expected. They figured out they would be dealing with tools like you going "Durr, it's cold in Bumfuck, Antarctica so you must be wrong!" so clearly they needed to change the terminology.

    • @apathicsx It's not like the Earth hasn't warmed up and cooled off several times during its existence. It's the notion that humans haven't been around long enough to experience the significant climate changes and potential transmigration of large metropolises in then flooded areas that could occur if the sea levels rise due to ice caps melting as a consequence of global temperatures rising. It's a grey area and no one can determine what exactly will happen thus people are apprehensive.

      Yes because I scientifically calculated how much Co2 my coal smelting factories made at the end of the ice age. You lying fucks have been caught out by the average joe public and throw around 'science' as means to discredit common sense.

  • Global warming is a misnomer. Global climate change is more accurate. The poles are getting hotter, ice is melting, ice is the engine for the various currents that drive the weather systems we know such as the gulf stream. Less ice means less predictable and stable weather conditions globally (Hurricanes, droughts, floods, record cold snaps, record heat waves, cooler than average summers, hotter than average winters, etc)

  • Come on guys...if the weather changes it's global warming. If it's cold it's global warming. If it's hot it's global warming. If it's tornadoing it's global warming. If it's hurricaning it's global warming. If a bird shits on you when you're walking to your car it's the winds of global warming that brought him to you.

    Science says so!

  • Climate is changing, earth is changing, sun is changing, solar system is changing, galaxy is changing and the whole lot is going to keep changing... Just as it has for billions of years...
    We don't exist in a bubble, the system isn't static.
    Anyone who tries to tell you the climate shouldn't have changed and that it has changed purely because of the human race, should not be trusted, respected or listened to.

      Obviously there is constant change in the universe and more specifically on our planet. Our climate changes constantly but that change has tended to follow patterns. In the past hundred years or so that pattern has changed somewhat dramatically. The general scientific consensus is that human action has been the driving force behind this change. It doesn't matter one whit that some ignoramuses continue to claim that there is "controversy" about this issue, because there isn't More..

    • @mooserock consensus has nothing to do with science.

      global warming is a cult, asking people to act on a BELIEF that the earth is suffering from a warming trend.

      So.. what did us humans do 10,000+ yrs ago that caused the climate to suddenly/radically change from a Ice Age to our current avg temp?

    • @amused0ne
      Au contraise, consensus has very much to do with this issue. In the sense that the scientific community has reached broad agreement that a) the climate is changing more rapidly that would be expected from previous trends and that b) this is cause by human action. There is consensus in the sense that only a few crackpots who have been widely discredited continue to foster an erroneus idea that there is a "debate" going on. There isn't, the matter is settled. Unfortunately th More..

  • global warming will cause more extreme weather in general, both cold and warm...

    where there are record breaking cold periods in one place(russia) there will be record breaking hot periods/droughts in others(texas)...

    generally the global average temperature is rising.... once it goes past 2 degrees we are scientifically screwed.... HAPPY DAYS!! lol

      It's not a matter of not believing. It's a matter of being forced to pay to do something about it, when this something is not proven to work.

      And screw the "why not be on the safe side and pay anyway?" crowd. I never heard a liberal make that argument about being on the safe side of God.

      You are correct there are no ifs, but as to what politicians can force people to do about it is ludicrous. The solution is not cap and trade as you say. But what is fee and dividend? What is your proof that that will work effectively?

  • Global temperature is rising(Emphasis on global there), or at least it has been rising since we started recording it.
    It's an irrefutable fact. The only thing up for dispute is the cause of said rise in global temperature. I don't profess to know either way.
    But there are some things i think people should consider, Humans have removed half of the worlds forests, most of that in the last 50 years. It's silly to think this hasn't, or wont, have an effect. Especially when you consider how important More..

      But then again the earth was once a ball of molten lava and now its full of life. You have to be a little oddly wired to think it will suddenly go in the complete opposite direction because the temperature goes up a few degrees.
      Im more concerned about over fishing and pollution than global temprature. Too much chemicals and shit going out into the water IMO.

      I suggest we weight the IPCC findings and take into consideration the scientific consensus around their finding and just how many climate academies and societies accept their findings. Because I doubt you and I have the expertise to weigh in with our "beliefs." Either you go through the rigor or STFU.

      Agreed that it is rising. But I'm not sure you can just point to one thing and say that has an effect without knowing it's quantative influence. Take a look at temperatures for the past 425,000 years. Of course looking only at the last century will get you headlines.

      We're just at the tip of another cycle...

      If you're a dinosaur and a comet hits the earth to change the temperature 16F, then yes you're in trouble. What we are seeing is a gradual change. Don't sweat it bro, there are more important things you can influence.
