Global Warming - Know the Symptoms

The current blast of polar air is a symptom of global warming smothering our planet. With the tons of carbon we pump into the atmosphere by burning fossil, we have disturbed the air currents.

Hmmmmm... I've been alive almost 60 years, and IIRC, every year it gets colder during the winter, and warmer during the summer. Some winters it gets really cold, others not so cold; some summers are sweltering, others more mild. This is called weather. You can call it "climate change" or "global warming", but it doesn't change the fact that the planet has heated up and cooled down dozens and dozens of times over the course of it's history.

My question is, what is the "correct" temperature for our planet? Is it the temperature we have right this moment? Is it 2 degrees warmer? Four degrees colder? Who gets to decide what the "correct" temperature is? What are you going to have to give up to achieve this arbitrarily decided "correct" temperature?

The Earth has managed to take care of itself for millions of years, suffered all types of indignities, overcome threats, disasters (natural AND man made), fires, floods, devastating hurricanes, killer tornadoes and droughts. Yet it has somehow always managed to bounce back. I can't lose any sleep over the fact that the Earth has warmed a fraction of a degree over the last 20 years. I suggest you calm down and think about this logically. And try to enjoy life a little.

I believe that the scientists have played Climate Change as a game of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. In the 70's they predicted eternal winter and Called it Global Cooling. Having screwed that one up they backtracked on Global Cooling and said the models were wrong and global warming was where the action was. Then the brilliance of the "W" administration decided that they would cover all bases and change the term to Climate Change, presumably because they had no idea of what was taking place. The bottom line is that the weather is changing and is affecting the environment-- both animal, climatological and plant diversity. How much. I personally do not have a clue how much and I do not believe that the scientific community is brave enough to admit to that fact.

Climate change has nothing to do with it getting cold in the winter or hot in the summer around here, moron.

My dad said when he was a teenager, he can remember a spell of temperatures in the single digits around here for about a week.
Does that mean that climate change was worse back then, because the temperatures around here this week aren't even close to that?

Very scientific analysis! Here is the data: the atmosphere had 319ppm CO2 in 1959 (as measured at the Mauna Loa Observatory) and today it has 420ppm. The undisputed source of this increase is burning fossil fuels the vast majority of which is for electrical power generation. So the question is not what is the "perfect" temperature, but what is the perfect balance of CO2 and we are getting dangerously high. Good news! The smart people of the world, the engineers and scientists in the power industry recognize that man is causing change in the atmosphere and are taking steps. The first of which is to convert coal burning plants to natural gas which produces much less CO2. So while dolts argue is man causing climate change the science is settled.

Typical human analysis think we caused weather changed and can control it by limiting liberal jet setting carbon footprints.

You got two choices:

You belive the universe was created by a Big Bang from the particals of fairy dust whose origins have yet to be “scientifically” explained.
Meaning humans got here late to earths party. Yet somehow man is now in charge of this rock and thinks he can control it by building clean power.

Or:

The God of this universe put the only known livable habitat for humans in the middle of the cosmos and controls the thermostat.

If so, he not going to freeze or toast us. We invented shorts, t-shirts and parkas. Use them.

I’m going with option 2. It’s one less thing to worry about.

“Global Warming”.".is a lie invented by the left to invoke fear/playing on the general ignorance in the population in order to tax and penalize industry...for tax revenue to line their pockets and to gain and maintain political power.

Too hot in the summer? global warming.
Too cold in the winter like today? Of course, global warming.

Yep, continue to take the bait.

What you need to understand is we have destroyed the ozone, and that has altered the jet streams.

Increased use of fossil fuels has created a situation of hotter than normal summers, and colder than normal winters.

You have failed to heed the warnings.

Mega hurricanes, massive blizzards, strong earthquakes, melting ice caps, rising sea levels, and explosive volcanoes are natures warnings.

Well yes, that observatory. It is not like "that Antarctic peninsula" (McMurdo Station perhaps?) because it is a a CO2 sensor not a peninsula so...Regardless it has measured a steady increase in the concentration of CO2 in our atmosphere since 1959.

Please explain further . . . I find the debate surrounding global warming involves idiots with no scientific background whatsoever . . . so you will be the first to change and lead the charge. Why exactly is the burning of "fossil" disturbing the "air currents"? Fossil what? Isn't carbon a base chemical that occurs naturally?

Im encouraged by your first paragraph - you use observation of events over time. This is a good way to determine trends. Thousands of scientists have been measuring and recording temp all over the world for over 100 years. The trend is we are getting much warmer.

I agree the planet will be here if we turn it all to a jungle or nuke every living thing on it - the planet doesnt care. Its just a rock in the cold vacuum of space. But that is not really the point is it. Life on the planet is fragile including human life.

The polar ice caps on Mars are disappearing. I am pretty sure that humans have screwed up the climate on Mars as well. Or, it could be the 11-year sun cycle. It has been shown many times that the Earth is at the very beginnings of the next ice age. Look it up.

All we know for sure is that mankind has prospered during global warming events in the past and mankind has suffered terribly during global cooling events throughout history.

The Oceans should be rising do to all of the "Swampland", that has been reclaimed. (Actually just filled in which pushed lots of water into the Ocean.

Not to mention all of the soil and debris that washes down our rivers and into the Ocean.

Then of course the underground volcanos should have an effect.

It is interesting that the scientists who know that Global Warming has caused the Oceans to rise never mention any of the actually provable things that should be causing the Ocean's levels to rise.

The fact is that it ain't the things we don't know that causes all the troubles.

It is the things we do know that ain't so that causes all the problems.

We don't have nearly the results of nearly enough studies to prove much of anything.

That said, everyone should do his or her own part in making our environment cleaner.

Demand faucets and toilets that do not leak. (And yet flush allow the waste away.)

Demand closed doors on super market freezers.

Demand traffic lights with electronic sensors that will never cause long waits while no car is in the intersection.

I see waste every single day.

Might each of us be a little bit less wasteful before asking Blue Collar workers to give up their jobs so Chinese workers can do the same job. (And cause far more pollution than our workers caused doing those jobs.)

Perhaps we should all walk a mile in the other fellows shoes befor asking that his job be sent to China.

As liberal as anyone

PS

We also know that nature always tries to level everything that nature has caused to make the Earths surface lumpy.

yeah, basically you need to know there has been many, many climate change cycles in the known history of the world-ice ages, heating cycles, etc.

The current global warming concern is based off of about 100 years of real data, and then "pretty good" data from before that. Not enough to make an exact conclusion given the history of the earth.

Maybe we are responsible in some large part. Maybe not.

Can and should humans do better as it relates to the planet?

Yes and yes. These efforts shouldn't be based on trying to "fix" or "reverse" global warming. May be too late for that, not for sure that we caused it, and not for sure we can fix it.

Why are people so interested in propping up the coal economy, vs. trying for measures that help the environment and push progressive technologies?

The coal industry has basically ALWAYS sucked for almost all involved except for maybe the corporate heads.

It has ALWAYS been a bottom of the barrel profession, and has always been injurious to the environment. Think "Deer Hunter". Think chopping off the tops of mountains. Think creeks that run black from coal sludge. Think an average life expectancy of 39 years. Think cave-ins. Think black lung disease. Think horrible little company towns. Think black skies.

So, why do we care about those people that are like "Coal mining has always been in my family...my great-great granddady was a coal miner, and he lived to the age of 39. Died of a goofed up back and black lung disease."

We shouldn't.

They've known for YEARS...GENERATIONS that it is a shit way to make a living.

We should put money and effort into progressive, clean technologies.

Plenty of new industry for those generations left behind, for whatever reason, in a modern stone age industry.
