That boat should be at least 10 times bigger with all the money he has fleeced off of schmucks.

Weird how a struggling polar bear is proof of anthropogenic global warming, but questions about this record-breaking winter occuring now is bigoted and racist.

Scientists Can Now Blame Individual Natural Disasters on Climate Change

LINK


It was January 2003, and as Allen—a climate expert at the University of Oxford—monitored the rising waters from the safety of his house, a voice on the radio was telling him that it couldn't be done. Sure, the flood was the type of event likely to be made more frequent by global warming, the representative of the United Kingdom's Met Office said on the show. But ascertaining anything more concrete was out of reach.

At the time, the Thames River Basin had seen some of its greatest rainfall in decades, and by early January, the flow in some parts of the river was the highest it had been since 1947.

But the radio voice added that it would be "impossible to attribute this particular event [floods in southern England] to past emissions of greenhouse gases," said Allen in a commentary published in Nature shortly thereafter.

In 2003, that was the predominant view in the scientific community: While climate change surely has a significant effect on the weather, there was no way to determine its exact influence on any individual event. There are just too many other factors affecting the weather, including all sorts of natural climate variations.

But Allen wasn't so sure.

"At the time, everybody was saying, 'Well, you can't attribute a single event to climate change,'" he said in an interview with E&E News. "And this prompted me to ask, 'Why not?'"

So he drafted his commentary as the floodwaters inched closer to his kitchen door. He wrote that it might not always be impossible to attribute extreme weather events to climate change—just "simply impossible at present, given our current state of understanding of the climate system." And if researchers were ever able to make that breakthrough, he mused, the science could potentially influence the public's ability to blame greenhouse gas emitters for the damages caused by climate-related events.




quote:

His hunch held true. Nearly 15 years later, extreme event attribution not only is possible, but is one of the most rapidly expanding subfields of climate science.

"if we're sinking, why are we hundreds of feet up in the air?"

because it's a consensus. not an observable fact, or certitude, or something you can actually see like a boat sinking,(or feel on your skin)

no in fact the current conditions are telling you just the opposite like there are frigid temperatures in the deep south, nonetheless you must believe that the boat is sinking because it is a consensus, a consensi, consensae, consensu

consensus, you know like the earth is flat, or the sun revolves around the earth, or that volcanoes and eclipses happen because the gods are mad, that Nazism is good, that Communism is good and according to liberals it's ok that women don't have equal rights in Muslim countries, you know consensus.

mere skepticism is frowned upon, contrarian evidence is blasphemy, all questions are stupid

consensus is the opposite of science

There is no place for emotion in science. Just because an ignorant politician wrote a book about something he knows nothing about is no reason to buy "carbon credits" from said politician.

Al Gore is full of shite.

Yeah, let's spend trillions. Government needs those trillions.

Money apparently solves weather problems somehow.

Ironically, the Titanic analogy could be fairly apt, but just not for the reasons your dumb meme suggests.

Why is the boat in the OP absolutely covered in ice while the boats in the background have none?

The liberals on the titanic probably demanded money from everyone else, as it was sinking. To solve global sinking.

Science isn't about asking questions or voicing skepticism. It's about concensus and politics.
