The ocean absorbs a lot of Co2. Sure, you can change the atmosphere
and nothing will happen. Keep believing.
If the climate isn't warming, why are glaciers and ice sheets melting at
Larry how do you explain this major cold front we are having. I would much
rather have milder winters myself.
liberal larry: I hope you didn't strain a hamstring making that logical
leap. You sound like one of the many armchair scientists who read editorial
commentary rather than scientific studies and then regurgitate it as scientific
truth. The author of the letter is correct (to the best of my
knowledge). There has been no credible scientific study closing all the links
for global warming scare-mongers. I'm just glad I'm not on
trial for my life to be judged by a group of peers comprised of those who
develop iron-clad and unchangeable decisions based on nothing more than hearsay
When you look at the 100 year charts for global temperatures there is no doubt
of warming. When you look at just the last 15 years there appears to be a level
period. But there are other level periods in the steep increase of over a longer
period, there are even decreases for several years. Cherry picking
doesn't make science. They can't say there is no warming over 20 years
or 60 years or 100 years. There is substantial increases for those time frames.
It's just pathetic really to even contemplate when you look at all the
How well I recall the claims made over and over again that, despite much higher
incidence of cancer among smokers, that there was no direct or causal link.Yeah, right.
Yeah, right. Come back and tell us this again fifty years from now.
Living humans and all other living animals produce and exhale CO2. How do you
propose to stop that? Legislation? No one is allowed to work or exercise? Reduce
the population by killing? Obviously can't be done.Flaws to
global warming alarmists theories:#1 Global warming is questionable,
scientists do NOT concur. #2 IF warming WERE occurring, there is no
verifiable link between man's chosen activities and global warming. There
is all evidence to show the earth warms and cools naturally, in cycles.Paranoid alarmist chicken littles are wasting our time and resources with this
notion of global warming.These are the same folks who sign online
petitions to outlaw dihydrogen monoxide.
Put your head in the sand repubs! The earth is flat. And
the sun revolves around the earth.

Jan. 23, 2013============== Funny and sadly ironic you
should mention that...Becasue their Conservative HERO and GOP
figurehead -- Rush Limbaugh -- still, to this very day, tells them tobacoo does
not cause cancer, and that smoking is actually GOOD for you.[Because
- ALL science is wrong, and only he, the Hajha-Rushdie, the college drop out -
Yeah...I have heard all kinds of statements attributed to Rush Limbaugh and then
broad-brushed to any Republican or conservative. It was a successful campaign
tactic when one idiot GOP candidate, Todd Akin, talked about legitimate rape.
I guess if that is a fair tactic then all Liberals and Democrats
believe that islands will tip over if there are too many people on one side.Why don't we raise the level of dialog here?
@higv"Larry how do you explain this major cold front we are
having."Cold front? We're sitting in a ridge of high
pressure. When the snow comes tomorrow we'll be warmer than today. I'm
going to just change your question to "explain this 12F below average cold
we are having this month".Cold days still happen with global
warming. As cold as it's been we haven't even been within 5 degrees of
a record low any of the days this month. We set/tied 14 record highs last year.
Think of it this way. The Earth has warmed roughly 2F in the mid-latitudes the
past 100 years. 100 years ago we'd have heat waves and cold... whatever
extended cold is called. We still have those ups and downs, it's just that
you can think of all those days as being 2F warmer than they'd be without
global warming. So that 14 degree below average day in 1900 would be a 12 degree
below average day now (or 14 below a 2F higher average). @Christian
24-7"#1 Global warming is questionable, scientists do NOT concur.
"Anthropogenic global warming skeptics don't even argue
that global warming isn't occurring.
Global warming doesn't necessarily mean it will be warmer in the winter. It
does mean that seasons will be more severe. Look at our last summer! Hot hot
hot! Look at our winter. Cold cold cold.
Open Minded Mormon,That would be because of the lack of scientific
consensus on smoking . . .I think the issue here is that we
sometimes want to wish away that which does not fit our model of the world. We
fear control if the answer is something we don’t want so we avoid even
considering that which could be negative to our currently held views.It is not that govt. control and the proper response mechanisms to climate
change are not real questions (and questions worth debating) but we never get to
that debate because we are too busy burrowing deeper and deeper into denial so
that we never have to deal with such questions directly.Avoidance by
Kerry,No evidence connecting human CO2 emissions and climate
change?Then you're not bothering to look.Google
"human co2 related to climate" and watch what happens.Simple
ignorance is not a sin, but willful, beligerant ignorance is.
Ease up on climate change?I can't see the mountains in the SLC
valley...when I am INSIDE the SLC valley.
Our air pollution is worse for EVERYONE than smoking is for the few who choose
it.You have no Free Agency, and no right to clean air.You'd think the Word of Wisdom and Free Agency would have most Mormons
supporting cleaner air?But sadly too many value Party Politics and
their AM radio shows over all Common sense, reasoning, and even Spiritual advise
on the matter.
To "liberal larry" maybe you need to go and get your eyes checked. The
article said that the climate is changing, which is true. The article also said
that so far there is no scientifically proven link between CO2 and climate
change. This is also true.To "Open Minded Mormon" was the
link between smoking and lung cancer made by consensus or scientific proof?If we followed your flat earth policy and resolved scientific debate
with a vote, then the earth is still flat, the universe revolves around the
earth, and there are only 4 elements.To "Blue" it is true,
none of the studies out there trying to link CO2 to climate change do so withing
the 95% confidence interval which is used to establish scientific connections.
It's good to see the climate scientists writing letters and responding to
