Many believe global warming is a cover up for what is actually inevitable. Many believe that our earth is moving closer to the sun each year. The sun is a big ball of energy ( you learn that in 3rd grade or so) and what does energy do? It pulls or pushes. In our case the sun is pulling. We are not moving around the sun at a perfect circle circumference but instead we are in the toilet bowl effect (being sucked right in) this would explain holes in our atmosphere, the continued global warming (problems) etc. It also explains a theory called "Terra-Forming" terra forming is what is happening to Mars. Mars is becoming more earth like and habitable. Maybes it moving towards the position of earth? what are your thoughts?

One of the main points of contention is how to divide the burden of emissions cuts between industrialized nations and emerging economies such as India and China, the world's top carbon polluter. The lack of progress in recent years has fueled doubts over whether a binding deal is possible at all.
Thorgeirsson seemed to strike a pessimistic note Tuesday, talking down the idea that Paris — or any other conference — would produce a grand bargain that would ensure the reductions needed to prevent a dangerous warming of the Earth's atmosphere. He even seemed to suggest that a global solution to the issue wasn't likely until the effects of climate change came barreling down on peoples' heads or flooding into their homes.
"I don't think that an international treaty will ever be the primary driver for the difficult decisions to be made," he warned. "It's the problem itself that will be the primary driver — and the consequences of that problem."
Quizzed on the repeated failure of the international community to organize a global deal on greenhouse gases, he said that the politicians involved had to be held to account.
"This is a question that needs to be asked at the ballot box," he said. "This is a question that needs to be asked of leaders at all levels."
"This is a question that needs to be asked of leaders at all levels."

Hmmm... a warmist calling out political leaders, but what about the global warming "leaders".

Do you ever wonder what happens to our daily [manmade] ghg emissions of 90 million tons into our breathing air?

Once again,..
FyI:

“We estimate that Earth will cease to be habitable somewhere between 1.75 and 3.25 billion years from now.

“A fter this point, Earth will be in the ‘hot zone’ of the sun, with temperatures so high that the seas would evaporate. We would see a catastrophic and terminal extinction event for all life.

“Of course conditions for humans and other complex life will become impossible much sooner – and this is being accelerated by anthropogenic climate change.

“Humans would be in trouble with even a small increase in temperature, and near the end only microbes in niche environments would be able to endure the heat.”

The question was asked at the ballot box in Australia.

Australia's conservative opposition swept to power Saturday, ending six years of Labor Party rule and winning over a disenchanted public by promising to end a HATED TAX ON CARBON EMISSIONS, boost a flagging economy and bring about political stability after years of Labor infighting.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/conservative-opp...

The Australian people woke up to the smoke and mirrors of taxing carbon and voted them out. Australia imposed a carbon tax, raised the rates of energy to the Australian people by going green, but yet at the same time shipped the Australian citizens' cheap energy of coal to China, thus doing nothing to lower worldwide carbon emissions, but instead fleece the public of their hard-earned money.

China's coal imports, excluding lignite, rose 26 percent in July from the previous month after two months of falls in shipments, as a drop in overseas prices led end-users to ramp up orders of Australian coal and restock for peak summer demand. The jump in imports was largely led by Australian coal, which rose by 3.59 million tonnes to 8.52 million tonnes, accounting for nearly three-quarter of the total volume increase.

Yes, "lyin' brian" proved it was in fifth grade, then degraded to sub-sub-kindergarten levels with major mathematical & continuing errors & its slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pigisms & alleged & proud threats.

It appears "middleofthedownwronggull y" continues in the middle of the down wrong gully by defending toxic topic AGW deniers who are slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pigs & alleged & proud threateners.
