Those "fringe" papers made it to major news outlets and publications and were widely accepted in the general population.



Yes I know the major one was the "1974 Time magazine article Another Ice Age?" but those media articles, not scientific studies and even then the majority of actual scientific studies in the 1970s predicted the Earth would warm as a consequence of CO2.

We still have a problem with the media but as I said thats why I like to go with the science.



It was alarmist and irresponsible.

But it also mirrors the same trends we are seeing today.


We are in agreement again though it happens on both sides of the subject. One may be playing it up while the other plays it down.




“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist


You know he is still going on about that right? I also think he was considered a zoologist. I don't think he was ever considered an authority on the matter. Anyone can make a statement what gives those statements weight are published studies and peer review on the matter.




“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”
• George Wald, Harvard Biologist



That statement is interesting because I ran across it while looking up info on population increases. I know no one wants to admit it but the advent of GMOs and development of better agriculture coupled with synthetic fertilizers saved our arses or at least granted us a reprieve. That applies to Paul Ehrlich statement as well. Still they were talking about population as it pertained to our ability to farm then. I am not sure how that ties into AGW/climate change.

Actually the scam behind blaming CO2 (that actually is the earth coolant) is in order to be able to profit from selling carbon tax credits.

Don't you know that taxing CO2 for profits is not going to help anything but fatten the pockets of the profiteers of global warming?

We need green initiatives but not at the expenses of taxing anything

Think, think.

If CO2 were so bad why the profiteers wants to sell credits?

think, think, is a scam to make money.

Misconception my big latino rear end, this was the propaganda during the 60s and 70s, perhaps a littler research will refresh your memory.


As I have already stated there were 7 papers from that era talking about that. Please before you go insulting others memory take the time and review the information as you have clearly forgotten.




Selling earth natural cycles and blaming humans for earth farts in order to see if money can be made has been going on for a long time.


We have literally been over that already in this thread. OMG you seriously didn't bother reading the thread or watching the video before regurgitating this stuff.



People just tend to have such short time memories


As you have clearly demonstrated repeatedly through the thread with you own short term memory.



no wonder the government wants to control the internet so bad so people will never find out about the truth, dumb people are easier to manipulate than the well informed ones.


I don't think they need to control it because you have the information in front of you and you still dont get it. Judging by the last house science committee and their ignorance on the subject though it may be feigned they are probably perfectly happy with those like yourself and the internet.

I get it alright, dear, I get it alright, I rely my sources on information that doesn't have "global warming propaganda all over it, I rely in the actual history of earth cycles and nothing in the cycles of earth shows that we earth is doing nothing different from what it has done for millennia.

Plain and simple.

When in a few years earth starts to get colder than usual the profiteers will blame pollution again that is blocking the sun from warming the earth, I can not wait for the next scheme to make money.

You can not erase historical fact in the span of millions of years, but you can manipulate todays data to scare the population.

You know I have thought I sugest you take some time and read as I have already adressed the very issue you are throwing just like the last person who did.

Today was the first time I had seen a video from him so I went to the youtube page and went over the links that back up the data presented. It was factual information and like I said I thought it was put together pretty well.

So basically that means. Your sources are not based on science.

You could have said that from the beginning. Good for you. However as I said before I will stick with science.




Plain and simple.



I concur.




When in a few years earth starts to get colder than usual the profiteers will blame pollution again that is blocking the sun from warming the earth, I can not wait for the next scheme to make money.



Now that prediction is as solid as starring in a bucket of water like Nostradamus.




You can not erase historical fact in the span of millions of years, but you can manipulate todays data to scare the population.



Cool story zero evidence.

Grimpachi, putting the debate aside, I agree, we need to take care of our earth, we need to get all together and work on preserving our beloved resources.

Is not doubt that we need to do that, but please Grimpachi, inform yourself of the real scam behind the global warming, because what people do not understand is that is been used to generate profits, scams are been created because is easy to scare people to death in order to sell them a snake oil fix.

The names behind the global warming scam should be enough for you to be worry about what they are planning.

Not everyone can look at the evidence and understand it, just like you never seen to understand it either. This video really doesn't debunk anything at all. It is the same old denying tactics.

BTW, the NYC "march" of people "for radical changes in policy against CO2" shows how much of hypocrites the AGW crowd is. Demanding that everyone accepts the AGW religion, and it is a religion, meanwhile they trashed the area where they were marching, and then on their responses on facebook and twitter these people that were marching claim "but I didn't throw that trash it was someone else so I left it there"...

People like you seem to think that imposing "radical changes on CO2" will benefit people and will make oil companies pay... But that is not true. You seem to forget, like you do every time, that CO2 is needed by life and going after it you are not going after oil companies. You go after life on this planet by "demanding radical changes against CO2"...

By imposing "taxes" and "cap and trade" the rich get richer meanwhile they can blame "people" and "overpopulation" for climate change meanwhile companies make profits by making dummy companies from which they can trade 'carbon credits" and still make a huge profit. In the end it is the regular people who pay for this and the AGW crowd cannot comprehend this because they will never even try to understand the topic, instead they "believe' what they are being told by the AGW proponents who have been caught lying, time, and again and have used many tactics to hide the truth behind AGW.

And I agree with that, but unfortunately the AGW crowd will never see past their blinders and the religion that is AGW. Unfortunately no matter what they will keep "believing" in AGW.

By the time the AGW crowd realize what is going on they will see that they, alongside every other "regular person' will pay for the "radical changes they keep cheering for" meanwhile the climate "keeps changing".

Sequestration of CO2 will mean less global harvests, less food and less water for everyone, including animals. It will mean "less forests" including less rain forests meanwhile there is still illegal deforestation going on in many areas. Which is perfect for the plans of depopulation and population controls that tptb want to impose all over the globe.

Is so easy to sell something that really can not be kept under control, we can control water, food, resources, gasses? anybody that think we can tax carbon as credit is a fool. we as well tax the air we are breathing.

Like I say selling snake oil as a fix, nobody gets better, but they think they are, I guess that sells.

lol, I know right?

it's amazing how anyone can look at a video like this one without "any context" about those graphs this "dude" shows, and for some people this seems to be the only evidence they need.

I know, people have no idea of the importance of CO2, But some are opening their eyes and asking questions.

The Global Warming Scam: Having Failed To Promote CO2 As The Culprit Behind "Global Warming", The Scam Artists Have Turned To Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) Instead,


Recently, I presented very strong evidence here that Carbon Dioxide is absolutely NOT a so called "Greenhouse Gas".... The findings of recent studies, including one conducted by the fraud artists at NASA have shown definitive proof that Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is actually a coolant, and that in spite of the claims made by the scam artists behind the Global Warming fraud, CO2 increases in our atmosphere does not lead to increase in world wide temperatures.... Therefore the scam of "Carbon Taxes" to curb CO2 accumulations in our atmosphere is a complete sham....

It does indeed appear that the fraud artists have caught wind to the idea that people are realizing that CO2 is not a so called "Greenhouse Gas" as has been claimed for almost a 1/2 century.... And they are therefore having to quickly now come up with another "culprit" for their Global Warming scam....


northerntruthseeker.blogspot.com...

Is millions and millions of dollars been used by the profiteers of the global warming scam to push their agenda, once the government starts to pass laws written by them with their hoard of lobbyist paying out politicians to do what they want is going to be too late

yep , and also the same ones who jet around the globe crying the end is near and ya gotta pay carbon taxes or we'll all die .

Colorado instituted a Carbon tax, you know what it cost the customers?
$20.00 / year for residential.
$10,000.00 / Industrial.
If I can make sure that my kids still have oceans with life in them, safe air, and normal climate… I think I can sacrifice 1 trip to MacDonald’s this year…
The guys who are screaming about the whole thing, and driving the conspiracy’s about this tax, are the same guys who are going to get the highest fines… The fossil fuel based power industry.

Misconceptions?... first of all, who the hell is that guy?... Some random guy claiming all of that without showing any proof, and you actually think this video debunks anything at all?...


Beezer provided the link for his wiki page and the "evidence" hate using the word proof because it so unscientific can be found in the section where it says "show more" there you will find links to the evidence backing up what he says.



First of all, even the main AGW proponents were mailing each other messages that they couldn't account for the lack of warming... They also mailed each other "tricks" to use such as taking out data points which showed cooling, etc, etc.


Christ some of you don't pay a bit of attention. You know that is tired old rhetoric that has been addressed and disproven throughout these threads hundreds of times and yea I have seen it provided to you before.

I make a thread to cut down on having to go over the same stuff that has been addressed and people come out of the woodwork with the same tired stuff. I swear it must be a groupthink tactic to ignore evidence and regurgitate this stuff or maybe it is a conspiracy to keep the debate mired in ignorance.

I know you have seen it but here you go again. "Climategate" Scientists Cleared of Wrongdoing - Again en.wikipedia.org...www.scientificamerican.com... tist-cleared-in-inquiry-again/

WTH here is a search result on the subject.www.bing.com...




There have been studies that show northern hemisphere temperatures from 2,000 years ago and the trend has been cooling. It was warmer during the Medieval, the Roman and the Minoan warming periods. BTW, yes the Earth has been warming since the 1600s, but it hasn't and it isn't warmer than it was during past warming cycles.

Not to mention that it is a fact that the Earth has been warming since the early 1600s, almost 300 years before the height of the industrial revolution.


And I have seen that explained to you time and time again so I know whatever I say you will simply ignore just like everything else.



So, you, and your friend did not debunk anything at all Grimpachi. This just shows desperation on your part.


What friend are you referring too? You mean the guy in the video that has his own channel and provides all the evidence to back up what he said if you had only clicked like most people "honestly" interested in the subject?

Sorry Bub don't know him but after i looked through the links I agree that he is right on the money. The only thing I am desperate to do is get people to stop regurgitating things that have been covered already like what you do.

Those things are settled just because you keep asking the same questions and ignoring the answers doesn't unsettle them. Find some new material because it and you are boring. I don't get involved with the threads on those topics hardly anymore because you're all borish without an original thought in your heads with the same crap over and over. A bot could out debate those who keep using the same misconceptions about climate change. In fact a bot has done just that in the pastChatbot Wears Down Proponents of Anti-Science Nonsense

I for one am tired of simply addressing the concern/issues that keep being reused simply because you don't know how to use search functions.
