Starvation, poverty, flooding, heat waves, droughts, war and disease already lead to human tragedies. They're likely to worsen as the world warms from man-made climate change, a leaked draft of an international scientific report forecasts.

The Nobel Peace Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will issue a report next March on how global warming is already affecting the way people live and what will happen in the future, including a worldwide drop in income. A leaked copy of a draft of the summary of the report appeared online Friday on a climate skeptic's website. Governments will spend the next few months making comments about the draft.

 

This will occur everywhere but in NC, where it is against the law to use such information, therefore it must be ignored. Don't worry, as long as you ignore the report, none of these things will happen to you, as long as you live in NC.

Now the state’s Legislature is considering a law that would, for all intents and purposes, give all the legislators doctorates in climatology. Because the law allows the Legislature to decide what is useful scientific data and what isn’t.

 

As a coastal state, North Carolina faces the same global climate challenges of rising sea levels and turbulent weather that island countries and other coastal regions have begun to confront, and to ask what to do next: Do they build walls? Draw their population inland and upland?

 

Here's the NC solution: pretend it’s not happening. Pass a law saying it can't happen because we say it can't. Which is to say, ban any government agency from using the standard scientific tools like extrapolating data to figure out what's happening, and thus avoid all those scary, silly scientific facts and figures.

 

Global warming? Flooding seas? Not in North Carolina. Why? Because they say so, that's why.

our coastal ecosystem is incredibly fragile because of the uniqueness of its waterways and the extent to which foodsystems rely on a level of stasis in coastal margins.

 

i really have never truly understood the mass-scale aversion to global warming as a reality. i mean i have - back when i was in college republicans and railing against all the LIEberal policies that ruin the world i just knew that it was a left-wing lie designed simply to fool the public and scare them into voting democrat - but i like to think that i and my ilk at the time were on the fringe of the sphere of public opinion.

 

why, realistically, would anyone be opposed to making a few changes in light of this evidence? i'd be interested in hearing substantive responses from those who oppose such measures.

I don't argue that the earth is warming in the short term.

 

What I doubt is that we know if 

1) It is a long term trend

2) It is man made

3) It matters

 

20 years ago I was told to expect global cooling

8 years ago I read that massive hurricanes were the new norm and to expect sudden and drastic changes in the world due to global warming.

Now global warming is expected to take a 35 year break due to natural 300 year cycles and solar flares. And actual increases have been way less than expected

http://dailycaller.com/2013/10/29/global-cooling-are-we-headed-into-a-little-ice-age/

 

Basically everyone has a side in this without any understanding of what is going on. Too many agendas

 

So I do not believe we should be spending any money or passing any legislation based on global warming data. I have seen nothing to convince me that greenhouse gasses are a legitimate problem.

 

I have no issue however with making our world cleaner. Our population may eventually get so big that it does serious damage to the earth although I imagine we will fix that problem on our own.

This is my thoughts as well.

 

I don't mind cleaning up our acts, I just have a hard time justifying the amount of money and time that people put into "climate change".

Yes. By dying in mass. Perhaps to the point of extinction.

Delhommey finally hit a point. Doesn't mean he actually understands the issue... Just that he stumbled across a kernel of truth in a log of ish

arguably the principle factor that allowed for the sustainment of domestication from which arose complex societies ~ 7k years ago was stabilizing coastal margins. say what you will about temperature fluctuations and whether or not they are manmade, but regardless of cause the effects should not be ignored by anyone. due to earth's population size there exists much more expansive consequences to ecological changes (in terms of raw numbers) than at any point in the past.
