Again, anyone who says there's no evidence of current effects of climate change didn't read the report, as claimed.

They didn't even read the headline.

Scientists aren't saying that "global warming" is "caused" by "man". They say that all indications point to "man" exacerbating the problem.
There is no discourse among scientists as to whether or not the planet goes thru periods of cooling and warming, it's the reason that those up and down temps and their effect on the planet are becoming more extreme is the current debate.
Denying that there is something going on that we don't fully understand yet and calling for an end to the study of climate Chang, is absolutely absurd. If the brakes on your car start squealing, you don't just ignore it and hope it goes away. You look into what is causing the noise and fix it before a major accident happens. Same with global climate change. You study the situation and try your best to rectify the problem.
Which sounds better? Spending money now, and looking for a solution, or doing nothing. I say try now and hope that it's nothing to worry about, rather than wait and find out that it's a real problem and nothing can be done about it.

what are the specific effects? what are the specific economic costs? how did normal weather, like hurricanes, suddenly become man's fault? how is climate racially discriminating? i want answers based on facts to these questions instead of opinionated spin.

There's that funny, fundamentalist idea that you have to be locally present in some way in order to know anything.

This argument usually goes, "I can't know how old the earth is because I wasn't there." I'm not making this up. That's actually what fundamentalists say when told the earth is, uh, somewhat older than 10000 years.

No, you cre tin, it's not necessary to personally speak to every qualified scientist to know of the overwhelming consensus. That is not how knowledge works.

Even know nothing blabbermouths like that unqualified, uninformed physicist, Dyson, who was a denier poster child for half a decade, has figured out the obvious mechanism and ongoing effects of carbon emissions.

You all get back to us when you:

Have a fourth grade science education.

Know what "theory" means.

Can read the headline of the report, which clearly indicates present day, ongoing consequences.

No, you're incorrect and dissembling.

There is no controversy in the qualified scientific community that the climate change is human caused.

We (educated persons) know this because similar warmings are not happening on nearby planets. It's not solar.

The current climate changes are happening far, far faster than any of the previous ones which took place absent human inputs. The current changes are dissimilar.

You are ignorant and lying and proud of it.

Troll, that climate change is having effects now does not somehow mean, as you would have it in your disorganized mind, that there will not be more effects in the future.

You're confused at the most basic level, even for a troll who makes things up.

Global warming is real and is instigated by human activities involving fossil fuel burning since the beginning of rhe industrial revolution in England.

Global climate change is one of the many consequences resulting from the man-made global warming. Sea level rise, melting poles and glaciers, ocean acidification, floods, droughts, extreme weather events of all kinds, extinctions, migrations, economic losses, shifting seasons, etc.

The end is not pretty for the living even though the pace is determined by the human activities. The more, the faster.

Remember daily 90 million tons of man-made CO2 are released into our breathing atmosphere.

In fact, the NCA’s report, compiled by hundreds of scientists, largely agreed with a United Nations study attributing climate change to human activities.

“Corn producers in Iowa, oyster growers in Washington state and maple syrup producers in Vermont are all observing climate-related changes that are outside of recent experience,” the NCA stated in its report.“So, too, are coastal planners in Florida, water managers in the arid Southwest, city dwellers from Phoenix to New York and native peoples on tribal lands from Louisiana to Alaska.”

oh, so you're admitting that effects haven't been identified yet? or are you just saying that they are going to happen in the future? if so, when? the arctic was supposed to be ice free by last year according to you chicken littles. what happened?

i'm asking simple questions, son. if you people weren't pulling shyt out of your azz you'd be able to answer them. you have a belief....but no facts on your side to back your faith up.

don't get mad at me for asking for some simple facts!

yeah......and climate change is causing more tornadoes, hurricanes......or sometimes less! LOL

also climate change is causing more rapes, more robberies, yada yada....

name one extinction that man made co2 emissions has proven to be the culprit.

While studies show that sea levels changed little from AD 0 until 1900, sea levels began to climb in the 20th century.

The two major causes of global sea-level rise are thermal expansion caused by the warming of the oceans (since water expands as it warms) and the loss of land-based ice (such as glaciers and polar ice caps) due to increased melting.

Records and research show that sea level has been steadily rising at a rate of 0.04 to 0.1 inches per year since 1900.

You demean people who had more science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc than you ever had. Your simple questions were answered there, but you avoided those classes, even in your U-knee-ver-city. Of course, scientists with 10-16 years more training in science & mathematics than you got, you don' listen to.

Scientists are monitoring an iceberg roughly six times the size of Manhattan - one of the largest now in existence - that broke off from an Antarctic glacier and is heading into the open ocean.

NASA glaciologist Kelly Brunt said on Wednesday the iceberg covers about 255 square mile and is up to a third of a mile thick. The iceberg separated from Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier last November
