A good article to give an understanding of the current controversy.
I LMAO every time I hear this "controversy." Alarmists can't stand anyone introducing a little logic and common sense into the topic. "We GOTTA do something" prevails.
"Doing something," IMO, begins with making an actual determination as to what is causing global warming. These proponents of "doing something" just want to go flailing around blindfolded.
Yes, global warming is a serious issue. One way or the other it is going to change how we live. Perhaps we should be more concerned with what, if anything we need to do to adapt to the change than trying to "fix" something we can't even identify?
Alarmists hurt their own cause more than any naysayers because people get sick of listening to the illogical, shrill hysterionics.
Did you read the article?
Both sides hurt the possible solution. Both are the extremes.
We're going to grow a LOT MORE food in Canada and Russia, for starters. And our winter heating bills will go down.... An adaptation I am more than ready to make....
Global warming... LOL... Would love some warming... We are currently under a winter storm advisory and experiencing unseasonably low temps. I've noticed that the more they bitch the colder the winters here get. Heck one time an idiot at the local news paper stated in an article that 'we will never see snow on the valley floor again due to the cement and asphalt of the city. Well... 2weeks later we got hit with a foot of snow then over an inch of freezing rain followed by another 1/2 foot of snow.
Some global warming....facts....the past two years
1) This past winter was the 7th coldest of all time in the Dakota's, Nebraska, Minn, Iowa.
2) Snowcover the most extensive in the Northern Hemisphere since 1966. Snow cover in China the most ever.
3) The year before last was the 15th coldest all time in North America.
4) The average North American temps the past two years have almost completely wiped out the 20 year buildup of slowly steady warming trend...in only two years...
We may still be warming....barely....but we've had the two coldest winters in the past 20, back to back.... Prior to these past two years many had finally accepted that at least we were in a warming period though there was not consensus as to why, but these last two years have again thrown serious doubt that we are even really warming....certainly irreversably.
Odd thing is, solar activity the past two years is the lowest in the past 10 years.... Imagine that, the sun has something do with the climate...novel thought there...
Too novel a thought for the scientists to figure out........
Ya I loved the part where every planet in the system was warming but ONLY earth was because of man made effects.
Agreed. However, those extremists living in caves with their hands over their eyes aren't doing anything that directly affects the lives of others.
Those calling for "do something" could be affecting the lives of others by their actions while accomplishing nothing since they really don't know what action to take.
But yeah, both extremes seem to be driving the train. Would be nice if for once their mouthes could be duct taped and people with a clue find out what actually is happening and why.
