Leaked UN report exposes global "warming"


A leaked report by a United Nations’ group dedicated to climate studies says that heat from the sun may play a larger role than previously thought.
“[Results] do suggest the possibility of a much larger impact of solar variations on the stratosphere than previously thought, and some studies have suggested that this may lead to significant regional impacts on climate,” reads a draft copy of a major, upcoming report from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The Earth has been getting warmer -- but how much of that heat is due to greenhouse gas emissions and how much is due to natural causes?


Okay, so we can be resolved that the Earth is, in fact, getting warmer on page one of this thread, correct?

I am shocked I tell you. Shocked they made the connection and admitted it. The next thing they admit to will be volcanoes emmissions into the air.

Warmer from a couple years ago or warmer than 10k years ago or warmer than 10 million years ago?

No way. Not agreeing to that. Get a few hundred years of data (preferably a few thousand) at least before we can discuss it.

Imagine that. Heat from the Sun explains global warming. Who knew?

In the past 500 years, yes. In the past 10-15, no. So why has the warming trend halted if its caused by carbon emissions that have continued to increase?

There are farm more CO2 emissions from respiration than volcanos.

The issue isn't really how do we prevent climate change. It is how to manage the effects. Unfortunately, industry has taken a huge hit from the theory of anthropogenic causes.

However, reduction in GHG emissions promotes overall better air quality due to other products of combustion besides CO2.

The Sun is capable of effecting climate on Earth? Nah, I think they're reaching.

Really? No flame. Link? The data I have seen does not show much variation.

Who would have thunk that the large fireball in the sky that has an effect on temperatures everyday might play a part in warming and cooling of the earth...

Okay, so we can disregard the article in the OP as being based upon a faulty premise and is therefore invalid itself?

We won't be able to do that until we agree on what the dynamics are in the first place - warming, cooling or static? And we won't be able to do that until we remove the political prejudice from the discussion.

And remove it from the studies apparently.

...by raising taxes. That was figured out a long time ago.

Probably has a little. Not gonna affect your lifestyle unless we overreact, then it may.

The hype over warming far outweighs any negative affects. All that hype over moving villages over permafrost took a hit when it was found Alaska cooled by several degrees over the past decade.

Why would you disregard it? It sounds like you agree with the statement "the earth has been warming", so why would that statement be a reason for you to disregard the rest of the article?
