      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

More Global Warming Bullshit

Fairweather:

what do you think that article is saying? Does your original post represent it well? Or are you simply saying, yet again, that the overwhelming conclusion of virtually everyone who has studied this issue is wrong?

I don't believe this is the case. I don't think any so-called consensus exists, and data like this only strengthens the case for uncertainty. IMO, this story is about politically tainted scientists hedging their bets such that they can claim their data was correct no matter what the outcome.

riiiiight,

Let's come back to this thread 5 or 10 years later and see the results.

 

Well said. Unfortunately, there are people with agendas...and they aren't as patient as you are.

Dude, you are way out there on this one. I think even George Bush has acknowledged that any "debate" is over. Seriously: this is not some evil liberal plot to bring socialism to your doorstep and make you drink herbal tea. It is a real issue.

Content? G W Bush? His name is a weak leg upon which to state your case. Evolution? Settled science. Anthropogenic global warming? Not settled by a long shot. I'm surprised you can't see that you're running with a herd that doesn't even know where it is going.

It's a computer model of a chaotic system. Of course they're not going to claim that their results are 'the truth'. From what they have put into their model and based on their assumptions this is what they predict. There is a chance that the model is wrong but it seems to explain and predict a short term weather trend which will give way to the global warming trend once the cycle has completed. It in no way weakens the case for global warming which is a long term trend.

 

As for your conspiracy theory, far more scientists have come out saying that they were pressured by their funding agencies to keep quiet about research that has supported global warming.

 

What is the purpose of denying global warming? Do you want to maintain the status quo and continue the consumptive destruction of the earth? Even if global warming is a myth do you not believe that our current path will destroy all of the natural resources needed for life to survive on this planet?

I'm not the one claiming it is settled science. Now it sounds like you aren't either? In any event, this new model clearly does weaken the the case for global warming--and is clearly an attempt to provide cover for poor data and/or interpretation thereof.

Anecdote on both sides is available. How about some solid numbers to back up your claim?

I am all for drastic reduction in the consumption of oil, but there still isn't anything to replace it. The same folks who worship at the altar of global warming don't like nuclear either...or hydro...or... And so far, all that the biofuels crowd has accomplished is higher food prices and more third-world starvation. Well done. Edited by Fairweather

Why don't you read through this summary report and then check back

 

Warming of the climate system is unequivocal

 

An Assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

This summary, approved in detail at IPCC Plenary XXVII (Valencia, Spain, 12-17 November 2007), represents the

formally agreed statement of the IPCC concerning key findings and uncertainties contained in the Working Group

contributions to the Fourth Assessment Report.

 

This is the summary report and not the full thing.

 

Then again I'm sure Rush Limbaugh didn't aprove these findings.

His group's projection diverges from other computer models only for about 15-20 years; after that, the curves come back together and temperatures rise.

 

"In the long term, radiative forcing (the Earth's energy balance) dominates.

"The scientists are all in on the giant conspiracy!"

 

"Liberals are a bunch of dogmatic conspiracy theorists!"

 

"This article clearly proves my point despite the fact that it says the exact opposite!"

 

"I'm DRUNK!"

I can't believe that the debate over global warming ended so soon. Weathermen say it's gonna be 90 degrees next week, bet it starts up again!

 

Seems to me that instead of blowing this issue off until it's too late, we should AT LEAST take the easy baby steps immediately, EVEN if the science is later proven wrong instead of correct: using less fuel to go to the corner grocery store is a good time.

So global warming cant be totally proven......FW, dont you think it would be wise to error on the side of caution? If you are right.....all is well. If the other side is right.....our kids, kids are gonna die because of our ignorance.....
