Is Game Over for Church of Global Warming?

Mar 9, 2013 Full story: Real Clear Politics 14

These are not happy times for the Church of Global Warming, which has been trying to repackage its manufactured hysteria as "climate change" for several years.

Deniers are dropping off like flies. The evidence is overwhelming .. the AGW is raging despite fossil-fuel polluters' lies here.

Hey deniers, learn that 2 degrees C is 3.6 degrees F.

The main point to take away from this story is...
Global Warming is a good thing when one considers the alternatives.

Climate changes; always has, always will.

The END of Climate Change = the END of Earth.

What are those alternatives?

Where's the evidence?

Yes what are the alternatives and where is your evidence. To date all you show is cut and paste scientific science fiction. Do they pay you to promote that scare tactic?

The truth..

Prof. Thomas Pederson, executive director of the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions, and former dean of science at the University of Victoria, noted in an email that “the study was conducted by one of the best teams of climate scientists in the world.”

“Given continuing acceleration of emissions globally,” Pederson wrote,“we’re on or near the worst-case track that Meinshausen et al. modelled, and that puts us on a probable course for several degrees of planetary warming by the end of this century. In a word, that will be disastrous.”

An even more alarming assessment comes from University of B.C. Prof. William Rees, originator of the “ecological footprint” concept.

“I haven’t read this particular study,” Rees wrote,“but it sounds about right. If I recall, the United Kingdom’s Tyndall Centre (for Climate Change Research) suggests that a 90-per-cent reduction in carbon emissions from high income countries may be necessary.

“In any event, various authors don’t believe we have any hope of cutting greenhouse gases sufficiently in time to avoid a two Celsius degree increase in mean global temperature since to date, no serious steps have been taken to wean the world off fossil fuels.”

Dear SpaceBlues,
In an effort to guide this discussion away from ad hominem;
what do you suppose are all the possible alternatives to a warmer climate- with or without Man's influences?

[QUOTE who="SpaceBlues"]Whe re's the evidence?
Evidence is by definition a subjective principle ("A thing or things helpful in forming a conclusion or judgment")... so may we start with dispassionate reasoning?

Sincerely,
koolaid

Is evasion your best policy?

You've not supported your assertions. You CONCEDE.

QED: AGW rages while you fiddle with words.

Dear Mr. SpaceBlues, it is not my intent to be evasive.

My assertion is that climate is dynamic.
Earth's climate is capable of cooling and warming.

Earth's climate IS NOT capable of staying the same.. static and unchanging.

My attempt at communicating with you was to reach consensus... you know(?) a generally agreed position.

Toward that end, Mr. SpaceBlues, can we agree that the Earth's climate is not static?

A static climate on Earth has never existed and trying to stop the Earth's climate from ever changing would be an unreasonable effort.

A return to a colder climate may not be in the best interest of life on Earth.

A climate identical to, say any particular date of your choice, is not necessarily planetary perfection.

So... a warmer climate may not be worse than a colder climate and is preferable to a static climate- since such a state is not possible.

Those are the alternatives as I see them- so,
what do you Think, Mr. SpaceBlues?

You’re asking the spacedoutblues to think. Now that would be one tall expectation but my hat is off to you Sir. Now if you’re interested in scientific science fiction the spacedoutblues can ramble on endlessly with that cut and paste useless babble.

I never tire telling the true traits of "fetid feces face flip flopper fiend". It lied saying it had a PHD. It isn't a doctor, while it diagnoses wrongly. It has no science & mathematics degrees. It has no upper class science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc for its poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa(if it has that).

However, "fetid feces face flip flopper fiend" IS a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AND alleged & proud threatener supporter & is such. "fetid feces face flip flopper fiend" hates dirtling because dirtling was a worse slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AND alleged & proud threatener, and "fetid feces face flip flopper fiend" was jealous.
