I think I have a helpful solution for all future threads and posts on climate change...


They should begin:

DON'T
PANIC


The melting Antarctic ice stream that is currently adding most to sea-level rise may be more resilient to change than previously recognised.

Wasn't it not too long ago that Germany and / or Greenistanis were boasting about Germany's renewable energy report card?

Germany to Cut Green Forest for Brown Coal
Quote:
BERLIN (AP) — A court in western Germany says an ancient forest near the Belgian border can be chopped down to make way for a coal strip mine.
Cologne's administrative court ruled Friday against a legal complaint brought by the environmental group BUND that wanted to halt the clearance of much of the Hambach forest.
Hambach forest has become a focus of environmental protests against the expansion of a vast mine that supplies much of the coal used in nearby power plants.
The coal, a light brown variety called lignite, is considered one of the most polluting forms of fossil fuel.

Just had a thought, are these scientists all wearing white lab coats ? Do they have attractive bespectacled female assistants ?


If 1950's cinema has taught me anything, it's that dire end of the world warnings only happen if the above two criteria are met.

World's First Electric Cargo Ship Will Be Used to Haul Coal
Quote:
The ship is short-haul: It can travel about 50 miles with its 1,000 lithium batteries after two-hour charge, which is the loading and unloading time for the ship, state news site ChinaNews.com reports.2 So, it can be charged while it is docking.
Sadly, the Chinese spoiled the launch of this otherwise green cargo ship by using it to transport coal for electricity generation on the Pearl River in Guangdong Province.

The True Believers are trying to explain how global warming is causing record cold, just as they tried explaining a lack of hurricanes as well as increased hurricanes a sign of global warming. The best quote I've seen is this: "Global temperature becomes an unreliable diagnostic of planetary condition"

:lol:

Temperature is now an unreliable form of data to determine if the planet is warming! :lol:

They were, but then they realised that shutting down all their nuclear base load was idiotic and requires importing a shitload of power when the wind doesn't blow, or Sun doesn't shine. So now they're rushing back to coal to make up for their incompetent energy policy.

So the plot thickens. 15000 scientists from 184 countries were bribed and/or pressured to make these false declarations. There must be some powerful forces at play here to benefit from this.

Don't worry, they only want to help and are working for the common good. It is necessary to lie to the public, because they're too stupid to know that science is all about believing The Truth without proof.

Scientists are working on a solution. The global food supply is being genetically altered to cause all humans offspring to be midgets. Problem solved! Except for eagles carrying people off, we're still working on that.

Quote:
Another new threat has been created, and again we find it listed as a potential remedy to cure the world of the war infection: humanity itself. Not only is there AIDS, bird flu and other killer diseases that make their way in and out of the news, there is also our onslaughts on natural resources, abuse of oil, the threat of sea level and weather changes, etc. Largely, pollution and the environment have been used by governments as an excuse to raise extra taxes, to fill unforeseen gaps in the government’s budgets. Intriguingly, those governments that need extra money most, are the first to embrace the “Green Agenda”. So even though the Report was right in the sense that pollution and the environment could drive the economy, so far, governments have only used it as a supportive economic and social measure – and it seems clear that at the moment, it may miss its global potential, if only because many governments are already redefining the need and use of nuclear energy as an economic requirement – whether it is desirable or not.

In 2017 there were 485 scientific papers published that were skeptical of anthropogenic global warming.

I'm confused. I thought that scientists were all just partisan hacks that defend the global warming party line to keep the big buckets of money rolling in. How did these articles get published?

I've not heard anyone in OTW make that claim.

Settled Science types ignore differing opinion, which is not how actual science works.

To paraphrase:
SS: If we alter this data, the results match our expectations.

DO: You can't do that and claim it is irrefutable.

SS: Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!

They are not all partisan hacks. Just the ones I disagree with. :wink:

Merged thread.


According to Vencore Weather, Doc Ryan N. Maue and supposedly NOAA it has been a down turn in tornadoes and hurricanes this past year.

So pretty much every prediction by the ManBearPig cultists have been wrong. What a shock.

Well, as I have heard it, there has been a 222% increase in the NH though and quite harsh ones too. But globally it has been less than usual (below normal).
So...

Dooooomm!

Doooooooooommmm!

Quote:
In fact, there's more carbon in the permafrost, Douglas says, than all the carbon humans have spewed into the atmosphere since the Industrial Revolution — first with steam trains, then with coal plants, cars and planes.

[...]

Scientists don't know yet how much carbon will get released from thawing permafrost or how fast it will happen. Some of the carbon — maybe a big percentage of it — will get washed into the ocean by erosion. Some of the carbon will also get sucked back into the ground by new trees and plants popping up across the warming tundra.

But once carbon begins to percolate up through the thawing soil, it could form a feedback loop "over which we would have zero control," Miller says. The gas, coming from the ground, warms the Earth, which in turn causes more gas to be released and more warming to occur.

Thawing permafrost is a big wild card of climate change.
