All these alarmist are worried over CO2 and other global warming so-called triggers... is even one of them worried about the increased activity of volcanoes?

I haven't heard a peep yet have you?

They would probably suggest 'mufflers, filters, and catalytic converters been installed posthaste on all world volcanoes!

OK.

So far in 2014, Oklahoma has seen more earthquakes than California—and seismologists are increasingly blaming them on the injection of wastewater from oil and gas operations. A study published online this week in Science links four of Oklahoma's most prolific wastewater wells to a swarm of 2547 small earthquakes near Jones, Oklahoma, by showing how the wells sent a wave of water pressure coursing through the subsurface. The pressure can reduce forces acting to keep faults locked and trigger earthquakes. Although the hazard of induced earthquakes is uncertain, regulators in Oklahoma and elsewhere are starting to limit well operations and require more frequent reporting of well data.

Psst did you get it?

Although thousands of disposal wells operate aseismically, four of the highest-rate wells are capable of inducing 20% of 2008-2013 central US seismicity. [science]

You goose stepping Climate Blame "believers" are cowardly and hateful child abusing gambling addicts who bet your own children's lives on a failed long range weather forecast just because you hissy-fit hate "neocons" so much for having opposing views.

See its obsession with uncertainty analysis? But then its alleged addiction spells certainty.

So, what's the problem?

The "problem" is that you keep puffing out more CO2 while whining everyone needs to emit less.

A hypocrite... a total hypocrite.

You have changed so much.

What happened to your "mental" issues?

P.S. Long-range forecasting is easier, lonely '69.

Academia and the scientific community have a history of glomming onto a premise and sticking to it, no matter the problems it presents or the evidence against it. Darwinism is a good case in point.

Creationists are glued to their delusions regardless of evidence.

Oh settled science is based on evidence, LOL.

Odd that the self destruction to the environment by the species is contra Darwinian self preservation- not sure how the species could be destroying itself while trying to preserve itself

Don't lie but cut out food waste..

"If food was as expensive as a Ferrari, we would polish it and look after it."

Instead, we waste staggering amounts.

So says Professor Per Pinstrup-Andersen, head of an independent panel of experts advising the UN's Food and Agricultural Organization on how to tackle the problem.

Some 40% of all the food produced in the United States is never eaten. In Europe, we throw away 100 million tonnes of food every year.

And yet there are one billion starving people in the world.

The FAO's best guess is that one third of all food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted before it is eaten.

Of course, "NOT ice scientist" ain't no scientist, or it would know AGW scientists predicted increased Antarctic sea ice in 2002, confirmed in 2005 & as sleepy sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liars continually point out, as if it wasn't an AGW scientists' prediction.
