You might enjoy this from Loise Leakey:
To put the history of life on planet earth into a time perspective, imagine unrolling a toilet roll down a hillside. If there are 400 sheets of tissue paper in the roll, then the very first life in the oceans is seen at sheet 240. The age of the dinosaurs begins at sheet 19. Dinosaurs in their many forms and great diversity are around for 14 and a half sheets. Dinosaurs are extinct by the end of the Cretaceous, 5 squares from the end, making way for the mammals. Our story and place on the timeline as upright walking apes begins only in the last half of the very last sheet. The human story as Homo sapiens, is represented by less than 2 millimeters of this, some 200,000 years.
Our own individual lifetimes cannot be depicted on this final sheet of the toilet roll as it would be too thin a line, yet we have been witness to more change to the planet, to the diversity of life, global climate and natural habitats in this same time period. We are undoubtedly the cause of the sixth mass extinction event that the planet has seen in its history.
The last 50 years has shown an enormous increase in human population, but also extraordinary leaps in technological innovation. The question that needs to be asked is if we can rise to the opportunity, to use our technology to better understand our impact, to stem the tide of extinction on land and in the oceans, to preserve what we have left, and to discover and understand more about our past. What the fossil record does do is to force us to contemplate our place on the planet. We are but one species of several hominids that inhabited planet earth and like our distant cousins who went extinct fairly recently, our time on planet earth is also finite. It won't take much to tip the balance against us.
Ah, woman whose grandpa make a skull out of plaster and claimed it was our ancestors.

Turns out some of the thermometers were in the shade (tree growth) back in the early 1900's. All the data has been deemed tainted.
But if the data were corrected for that, Anthony Watts would say......

>>The majority of Northern Hemisphere warming over the last century is man made, and due to data tampering by government scientists.

In 1975, the National Academy of Sciences published the graph below, showing a dramatic cooling in the Northern Hemisphere from the 1930s until 1970, with the 1970 temperature about the same as 1910.

[see link for graphs]

NASA has since erased most of that post-1930s cooling, and made 1910 much cooler than 1970.

[see link for graphs]

The next graph overlays the current GISS graph (green) on the 1975 National Academy of Sciences graph. You can see how they massively cooled the period from 1890 to 1970, with the most dramatic data tampering being during the hot years of the 1920s and 1930s.

A report by the UK-based Carbon Disclosure Project, based on data from 110 cities around the world, suggests that the action that cities are taking to mitigate or adapt to climate change are not only helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make the cities more resilient, but also making them into much better places in which to live. The cities reported more than $40 million (NZ$50 million) in savings per year from tackling climate change. The vast majority, 91 per cent, also believe that working to combat climate change will lead to economic opportunities.[thenewzealandhe rald]

Nope. You are more of an idiot than a hypocrite.

Waste, pollutants and inefficiency created the problem.

Reducing those will inevitably make the world more self sustaining and more robust against problems with supply of resources.

It will come. YOU don't have to worry. The smart ones will survive and they will do it because they AREN'T idiots.

When did science become a religion? When the anti-science conservatives made it so. The earth is warming. CO2 is a greenhouse gas. Burning fossil fuels increases the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. Ergo, man is causing global warming.

The recording of the thermometer temperatures was flawed from 1900 to 1941.

Especially the Penn. and West Virginia field offices.

And another sounding off with the language of a religion.

'It will come. YOU don't have to worry. The 'devoted' ones will survive and they will do it because they AREN'T 'heretics'.

Thanks for playing.

For global warming it's this order:

3 Predictions from the hypothesis
4 Confirmation
5 Evaluation and improvement
6 More Confirmation
7 Repeat steps 5 and 6 as needed

I suppose that the deniers follow this script. LOL

It seems that you do not understand how science works. Have you any science background at all?
