if an experimental test is ever taken on effects of mitigation i might be persuaded. the science isn't settled....the hypothesis has too many unanswered questions. don't buy a pig in a poke. science should be questioned, son! always. you people....

For decades alarmists have called global warming a settled science.
First rule of science is,theres no such thing as settled science.
They just tweak the narrative and move the goal posts.

do you ever stop to think of the negative consequences of carbon taxation. those effects are more obvious than the benefits, imo.

<quoted text>Here's a piece of trivia concerning the birth of Foghorn Leghorn, should you decide to accept it.
Many moons ago, comedian Fred Allen had a weekly radio show. One feature was "Allen's Alley", in which Fred would visit tenants in an apartment building, asking that week's question. One of these tenants was Senator Claghorn, played by an actor named Kenny Delmar. Senator Claghorn was the original "Foghorn Leghorn". At the time famous characters could be ripped off without penalty.
There is a Senator Claghorn movie titled, "That's A Joke, Son".
And that's how the west was won. If you already knew about this, I'll be very miffed.
nope, you got me on that one....I always figgered foghorn was a figment of mel blancs imagination.

I agree that science should be questioned, and subjected to intense scrutiny. Any good scientist knows that. Many climatologists spent time trying to DISprove global warming data. In the end, they could not. This is one pig I am buying, lipstick and all.

A slow-motion and irreversible collapse of a massive cluster of glaciers in Antarctica has begun, and could cause sea levels to rise across the planet by another 4 feet within 200 years, scientists concluded in two studies released Monday.

Researchers had previously estimated that the cluster in the Amundsen Sea region of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet would last for thousands of years despite global climate change. But the new studies found that the loss is underway now as warming ocean water melts away the base of the ice shelf, and is occurring far more rapidly than scientists expected.

The warming water is tied to several environmental phenomena, including a warming of the planet driven by emissions from human activity and depleted ozone that has changed wind patterns in the area, the studies found.

There is no red button to stop this... The only question is how fast it's going to go.- Eric Rignot, a UC Irvine professor

"There is no red button to stop this," said Eric Rignot, a UC Irvine professor of Earth system science and the lead author of one of the studies, conducted with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and scheduled for publication in a journal of the American Geophysical Union.

The six glaciers have passed "the point of no return," Rignot said, which means that total collapse the melted retreat of the glaciers cannot be prevented. "The only question is how fast it's going to go."

Antarctica, surrounding the South Pole, is the largest mass of ice on the planet, containing an estimated 80% of the world's fresh water. Its scale is difficult to fathom. One environmental foundation said that if you loaded the ice onto cargo ships and started counting the vessels, one per second, it would take 860 years before you were finished counting.

The loss of even a portion of that ice would have consequences across the globe. Scientists have surmised its possibility for decades, and have braced for confirmation, which in effect arrived Monday.

For the UCI-JPL study, scientists used 40 years' worth of measurements, much of it data from satellite radar systems that can measure changes on Earth's surface to within a quarter of an inch.

The data was used to measure the precise location of the glaciers' so-called grounding lines the point at which glaciers connect to a land mass. It is at this nexus where warmer ocean water encounters the ancient ice and causes it to retreat.

The problem compounds itself in several ways, scientists said.

The more grounding lines recede, for instance, the less glaciers weigh, which lifts them farther off Earth's bedrock, which allows even more warm water to erode their foundations. Similarly, as the glaciers retreat into deeper portions of the ocean, their ice faces become steeper, rendering them increasingly unstable and increasingly exposed to warmer water.
