WATCH 131 YEARS of GLOBAL WARMING IN 26 SECONDS

  1. They laughed at Carter for wearing a sweater in the WH.
    They tore down the solar panels when Raygun came to office.
    We had gas lines a mile long.
    All parts of the 70's.
    We learned nothing. Now we have strawberries growing in the dead of winter in Greenland.
    Humanity deserves to vanish from the earth.
    We are guilty as charged. Killers of ourselves and the planet.

    1. The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.

  3. Wow, you guys actually think that this an impressive presentation about the history of the climate on Earth, huh? Oooh, look at the pretty colors. Congratulations, now we can give more money to the government and banks to save us from climate change. I'm ashamed to even be here.

  4. Paraphrasing Richard Feynman: Regardless of how many experts believe it or how many organizations concur, if it doesn’t agree with observation, it’s wrong.

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), some politicians and many others stubbornly continue to proclaim that increased atmospheric carbon dioxide was the primary cause of global warming.

    Measurements demonstrate that they are wrong.

    The atmospheric carbon dioxide level has now increased since 2001 by 23.2 ppmv (an amount equal to 25.9% of the increase that took place from 1800 to 2001) (1800, 281.6 ppmv; 2001, 371.13 ppmv; October, 2012, 394.32 ppmv).

    The average global temperature trend since 2001 is flat.

    That is the observation. No amount of spin can rationalize that the temperature increase to 2001 was caused by a CO2 increase of 89.5 ppmv but that 23.2 ppmv additional CO2 increase had no effect on the average global temperature trend after 2001.

    Without human caused global warming there can be no human caused climate change.

    Analyses that can be reached at the link (highlighted in red) given at http://www.switched.com/profile/2996642/ include an equation based on rational physics that, without considering any influence from CO2 whatsoever and using only one independent variable, has calculated average global temperatures since they have been accurately measured world wide (about 1895) with an accuracy of 88% (R2 = 0.88, correlation coefficient = 0.938). Including the influence of CO2 (a second independent variable) increased the accuracy to 88.5%.

  5. feynman wouldnt try to solve a math problem with many variables by just comparing two of them....

    you cant draw a linear equivalence between CO2 and global temperature because there are millions of other variables on earth and in the atmosphere that also influence temperature....

    ie, in the period you site, china and india have been industrializing, with china's industry doubling every 3 years...where is the dampening effect on CO2's radiative forcing by the particulate matter and aerosols entering the atmosphere from these two countries in your computations?

  6. I did and it quite obviously works.

    You are mired in the minutia.

    It might not be realized by some, but average global temperature actually has little to do with meteorology so the wrong experts have been trying to figure it out. It is more correctly understood as a problem in radiation heat transfer, and a fairly simple one at that. It consists of only average surface temperature and effective surface emissivity and average cloud altitude (temperature) and average effective cloud emissivity. An increase in average cloud altitude of less than 200 meters (and thus reduction in average cloud temperature and reduction of energy radiated to space) would account for all of the average global temperature increase of the 20th century.

  7. My goodness, how do we account for all of the global temperature increase of the 20th century? Sheesh, Algore was right, it's getting warmer. The above video proves it.

    They conveniently left out the truth that it's been warming since the end of the last ice age, nearly 20 thousand years ago. Yes it's warming, yes sea level is rising. And it's been going on at more or less the same rate for at least ten thousand years.

    Mired in the minutia is a good way to put it. Much like the blind man trying to understand what an elephant is but can only touch it's tail. This video conveniently shows you a tiny sliver of information, and doesn't put it in any context.

    Instead of re-posting the propaganda of the day, find ways to question and research yourself. Oh, but that would make you a skeptic and skepticism is bad, to believers.

    Another way to look at it in this day and age; any time you find yourself on the same side as the stuff we're being told in the main stream media all fricken day long, you can be sure you're on the side of the liars.

    ps. paragraphs are awesome and the caps key is not difficult to figure out.

  8. last week i linked to & covered the greenhouse gas stats from the WMO, the new report released on Sunday by the World Bank which predicted that average world temperatures rise more than 4°C (7.2 °F) by the end of the century even if governments stood by their current emissions targets, and linked to the warnings issued by the IEA (International Energy Agency), which forecast an 11°F global temperature rise, the similar report from the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) last year, and the report earlier this month from PricewaterhouseCoopers, the largest of the big four accounting firms, which warned businesses to prepare for catastrophic impacts from climate change...

    see the last paragraph here: http://marketwatch666.blogspot.com/2012/11/unemployment-by-state-housing-starts.html

    go follow those links and argue with them...
