Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

On a side note. BNSF railroad is experimenting with natural gas powered locomotives right now.

Whats interesting is it brings back into the railroad lexicon the use of the word tender. Since a tank car(tender) that provides the gas is behind the locomotive.

So things are changing.

I am going to put this here in all caps so my position is clear.

NOTHING CAN BE DONE IN MY OPINION TO STOP CLIMATE CHANGE NOW.

WE HAVE TO ADAPT TO THE CHANGES THAT COMES OUR WAY.

That means an all of the above approach to energy.

If we can use wind,hydro etc in certain areas. Then do it. Areas like ours that aren't really suited to them. Use natural gas or coal with carbon sequestration(provided its viable and safe)

But from an economic standpoint we are going to see a lot more gas fired power stations come online versus coal power.

Coal was supplanted as a means of fuel for the railroads when more economical diesel fueled locomotives came on the scene.

And so it will be with power generation.

How yea. Here recently was it not you who said that even though there IS warming man is not responsible for it?

But now you are saying there is no warming?

Consistency in position isn't your strong suit.

So which is it?

"It is you Larry and Shemp who claim man and co2 are causing cataclysmic warming which will forever change the world and make it a living he'll."

I never said that it would make life a living he11.

What no one knows is how it will affect weather patterns. We don't know how those will shift. Note I am talking about day to day and season to season weather.

You concrete block of a brain might get confused by that.

But a rising sea level. Yea. That will make things difficult for people. Especially people who live on the coasts or on low lying islands.

We'll see new challenges to how we live.

Thats what I am saying. Not the sensationalist bs that you project onto me.

"What a convienent way of saying "trust us, it may be cooler everywhere else but the deep ocean now there its getting warmer. Lol"

Global warming isn't about just the atmosphere.

But I guess you can't be bothered to understand that the land and oceans also absorb heat. In fact water absorbs way more heat than the air.

But who am I kidding huck yuck!

Its all a hoax right? Riiiigggghht!

"You want government to tax carbon."

Care to provide proof I support that idea.

Oh thats right you're not in the habit of articulating and detailing your position. With facts!

mythravere

The case has been made. Now its your turn.

But I must say your position is the easier one.

All you have to do is sit back and deny everything thats been laid out before you.

All the while you hide behind this false idea that you don't have to prove anything you say.

How very cowardly of you.

But then again you say we are cowards. Even though in the past we done as you wished and offered proof.

Which you reject outright without a thought.

“By 2040, heatwaves and droughts were the norm… In wealthy countries, the most hurricane- and tornado-prone regions were gradually but steadily depopulated… Then, in the northern hemisphere summer of 2041, unprecedented heatwaves scorched the planet, destroying food crops around the globe. Panic ensued, with food riots in virtually every major city. Mass migration of undernourished and dehydrated individuals, coupled with explosive increases in insect populations, led to widespread outbreaks of typhus, cholera, dengue fever, yellow fever, and viral and retroviral agents never seen before… The European Union announced similar plans for voluntary northward relocation of eligible citizens from its southernmost regions to Scandinavia and the United Kingdom…”

Where is the warming? The oceans just magically decided to absorb the excess heat and the land has not warmed in 17.years even though co2 levels continue to rise they say.

It's clearly up to you to make the case that man IS causing it but you have failed. Your side is calling govt action, therefore you must justify it.

You say that about everything laid on the table.

Not so, NO ONE has offered proof. Lots of opinions and theory, computer models, bad predictions, but no proof whatsoever.

mythravere

You say man has no role in climate change.

In your eyes thats reality.

Good! Back it up with proof.
