[QUOTE who="lyin' brian"]...... create a false sense of rarity......[/QUOTE]

We should limit oil well depths to 1000 feet, since 'lyin' brian' tells us of the great quantities of oil that flow over our feet. We're wasting money drilling deeper. Just use a child's Erector set to get the oil. Our ever newest technologies must be finding oil near the surface, like coal deposits are near the surface.

Never mind the following, since it can't be true:
The average oil well depth in the 1960's was less than 2500 feet. Presently, the average oil well depth is close to 8000 feet.

Can't be true.

'lyin' brian' says the oil is flowing over our shoes. Oil will always be available at the gas station.'lyin' brian' says so. Oil wells are getting shallower all the time.'lyin' brian' says so.'lyin' brian' must be believed.

You are right. It is actually .67 tn $$$, i.e. MORE. I checked the figure that was in UK money.

b_gone is still paid to lie here. The 'dirt' is gone like tina, ff, moth, gordy, kalie, etc. except for their judging still in icons.

Where's tina ?

Using 1992 as a starting point, John Boon projects that the sea level at Norfolk could rise about 2 feet by 2050.

That follows thousands of years in which the sea level went up only about a foot a century.

You can create a trend of any slope if you pick the right start and end dates. Don't panic, learn to swim.

SpaceBlues won't engage the issue, a slope is defined by the start and end points. Instead, he prefers ad hominem fallacies, irrationality, insults and defamation.

If you believe in science, cite the most compelling experiment you've found for climate change mitigation.

b_gone is broke .. it has reached an end point.

It does not know what any poster prefer. It prefers itself ad hominem fallacies, irrationality, and defamation. Now it is broke.

Locally, changes in coastal ocean temperatures can be much more extreme than global averages imply.

In the North Pacific and North Atlantic, there has been warming trend. In some areas, changes in temperature of +/-2.5 degrees Celsius, which is 3 times higher than the global average, were detected. Climate change is happening everywhere – just not necessarily at the same rate, or even in the same direction. For example, if you live on Cape Cod, your conditions are warming three times faster than global averages imply, while in Santiago, Chile, coastal waters have been getting cooler.

The Global Climate 2001-2010 a Decade of Climate Extremes Summary Report

"Climate change refers to long-term changes in the average state of the climate and can also be due to natural factors. The rapid changes that have occurred since the middle of the past century, however, have been caused largely by humanity’s emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Other human activities also affect the climate system, including emissions of pollutants and other aerosols, and changes to the land surface, such as urbanization and deforestation."

You can create a trend line with any slope if you pick the right start and end points. Trends can't tell us about future change, only about past change.

BTW, the oceans aren't acidic, they are alkaline.

You don't know what you are copying from science.

By the way, you are ignorant.

As ocean waters absorb CO2 they become more acidic. This does not mean the oceans will become acid. Ocean life can be sensitive to slight changes in pH levels, and any drop in pH is an increase in acidity, even in an alkaline environment.

The acidity of global surface waters has increased by 30% in just the last 200 years. This rate of acidification is projected through the end of the century to accelerate even further

The current rate of change is much more rapid than during any event over the last 65 million years. These changes in ocean chemistry are irreversible for many thousands of years, and the biological consequences could last much longer."

You already said that mitigation works.

You said we're mitigating the hell out of the next ice age with our warming pollution.

Getting paid to lie is a suck-ass job. How do you do it? Do you look in the mirror every morning and say, "I'm a paid liar, dishonest and unpatriotic, and I'm proud of it"?

LIAR. You posted as always ad hominem fallacies, irrationality, insults, and defamation.

You are paid to lie here by the fossil fuels guys. Your posts are always incorrect in science.

It is not true that "Instead, he prefers ad hominem fallacies, irrationality, insults[sic] and defamation." You are the one who is known to prefer that and has done that. Just ask poster "litesong." How dare you lie about me!

I know science to be able to know that you don't know science.

South Florida is in trouble...NOW. Global warming's sea level rise is about to cost Floridians millions of dollars and may only be a temporary solution.

This is from October of 2012, but still relevant.
