New Global Warming Report

Approximately 95 percent of the people that study this stuff for a living say you are full of poo. And science is not morality. It's science.

Antarctic sea ice has grown to a record large extent for a second straight year, baffling scientists seeking to understand why this ice is expanding rather than shrinking in a warming world.

On Saturday, the ice extent reached 19.51 million square kilometers, according to data posted on the National Snow and Ice Data Center Web site.  That number bested record high levels set earlier this month and in 2012 (of 19.48 million square kilometers). Records date back to October 1978.

Case in point: 30+ years of serious scientific research on the subject can easily be discredited by one data point posted in a blog.

 

This is the kind of stupidity people who spend their entire lives devoted to actual research have to deal with to get their work across.

Welcome to full retard... you've now gone to absolutely nothing to contribute of substance on this matter

 

PS - Thanks for proving my point about religious zealotry

Just as science does not have the information to determine when human life begins and/or ends, it does not have the requisite information to determine mankind's role in the earth's climate. As such, it cannot be ethically used to dictate policy on either issue. As climate science has yet to produce a viable predictive model to account for the requisite variance, to believe the punditry that man is causing what is claimed amounts to little more than religious zealotry. Hence the ethical evil of imposing one's morality on everyone else is a very apt comparison if you wish to make that with abortion law.

 

science is not an entity and it has no agency as such. this is a foundational point you and many others seem not to grasp and it's pretty clear how it effects your worldviews

You guys can't honestly believe this man made co2 crap, can you? The earth naturally puts out about a trillion times more co2 each year than the entire human species, yet somehow we're the cause of climate change? Of course there are things that we've done and are doing that aren't helping the cause, but to blame this situation solely on us is naïve and ridiculous. The obvious answer here is the sun...which unfortunately for the state, cannot be taxed.

Phrenology, eugenics, provable fact that man cannot invoke lighter-than-air-flight, provable fact that man cannot travel faster than the speed of sound, part of this complete breakfast, vitamin C will keep you from getting sick.... 

 

If you look back a mere century to the things that we KNEW to be scientific truth, the point that I make to religious zealotry is founded in truth.  Whatever the scientific method is supposed to be in theory, it has taken some disparate turns in practice.  I presented the anomaly from a solid part of the scientific community and was mocked/scorned by the climatology religious establishment without a hint of an attempt at scientific reason.

 

Kuhn and Hobbes were correct with their works on the philosophy of science.  Science stands as a principle.  People continue to act on irrational motive due to their vested interests with respect to their investments in their world views.

Might want to check your numbers there boss, current emissions are more like 2% of the natural carbon produced annually.  Which brings up the far more relevant point, that we have added a significant source to the carbon cycle which has no natural sink.

 

Also- you know we currently measure the sun's output, right?

It's called exaggeration. Either way, what we put out is no where near what the planet emits naturally...so it is no real cause for alarm.

And yes I am ware that we measure the sun's activity. Through this we know the sun has been going through a major heating up phase over the last few years, hence all the bizarre weather we've been having.
