2013 ranks as one of the least extreme U.S. weather years ever’



quote:

Tornadoes: 'lowest total in several decades' Number of wildfires: 'On pace to be the lowest it has been in the past ten years' Extreme Heat: The number of 100 degree days may 'turn out to be the lowest in about 100 years of records' Hurricanes: 'We are currently in the longest period (8 years) since the Civil War Era without a major hurricane strike in the US (i.e., category 3, 4 or 5)' ( last major hurricane to strike the US was Hurricane Wilma in 2005)

Who said God doesn't have a sense of humor, he knows we are suffering enough with this current administration.

Yeah. It's called climate change. Maybe you've heard of it?

Is there a point you'd like to make or is this the weather board now?

Obviously this confirms AGW.

I don't know what this data shows but there is a huge pile of data that says global warming is real.

Remember the knucklehead in England who was getting quoted about the upcoming big report?

Have you wondered why there hasn't been a bunch more noise since the report was actually published? Hmmmmm

What do you mean by "real"?

Are there warming trends? Yes.

Have there been warming trends before? Yes.

Is this warming trend caused by man? Not sure, I am leaning towards no.

Were there warming trends before people lived on this planet? Yes

Well the majority of the scientific community is 99% sure it is a "Yes".

UN Report on Climate Change

quote:

The world's getting hotter, the sea's rising and there's increasing evidence neither are naturally occurring phenomena.

So says a report from the U.N. International Panel on Climate Change, a document released every six years that is considered the benchmark on the topic. More than 800 authors and 50 editors from dozens of countries took part in its creation.


quote:

Climate scientists are 95% confident -- that is to say, surer than ever -- that humans are responsible for at least "half of the observed increase in global average surface temperatures since the 1950s."

This is the major headline from the report, as it marks a stark spike in confidence over the last 12 years, as scientists were 90% confident in 2007 and 66% confident in 2001 of the same conclusion.

Well, what's going on, then?

What are humans doing to ruin the natural variability of the climate?

I worry about the future consequences of climate stagnation.

You mean all that data they cooked/tweaked/twisted to fit their conclusion?

Or the data where they compare estimates of past temperatures, temperature records over 150 years with increasingly accurate equipment, data from different measuring stations, data from measuring stations on concrete, and future, HIGHLY imperfect and increasingly proving to be outright wrong modeling software, and treating all of that like an apples-to-apples comparison?

Just, what data are we talking about, exactly?

Well if the UN says so it must be true.

Global warming scientists make their living off grants, mosly from govts and academia.

How do you get bigger grants?

I dunno, but you don't get them by saying "This problem I want to devote my life to really isn't a big deal or anything."

Jesus, if the Right was pushing something like this with this obvious a conflict of interest that is all you would ever hear about.

The non-scientists pushing it want more central control of virtually everything.

This shite ain't hard to figure.

All of this was caused by global warming or climate change or whatever they are calling it today.

My guess is they will tell us it's the calm before the storm that they had been predicting.

What really makes it questionable is when the doomsday predictions keep failing to materialize. If empirical observations are out of line with a theory, any objective person would start to question the theory.
