Science is not a liberal leftish conspiracy.
I see many of you self described 'right conservatives' do not like the valid science so you all make up an 'alternative' view point that strokes your confirmation bias.
And you are linking this to man made climate change how?
I live in Key West. Every fall during a full or new moon during high tide some streets flood. This is true for all of south Florida.
Lets see what NOAA has to say about this...
Also when I was a child..early 1990s the average hurricane season had 9-10 named storms in the N. Atlantic basin. Now the average is greater with many storms developing in the 'off season.'
It is premature to conclude that human activities–and particularly greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming–have already had a detectable impact on Atlantic hurricane or global tropical cyclone activity. That said, human activities may have already caused changes that are not yet detectable due to the small magnitude of the changes or observational limitations, or are not yet confidently modeled (e.g., aerosol effects on regional climate).
Haven't seen you posting any actually.
I have science and evidence to back my claims that human activity is changing the climate and environment.
Prove my 'disillusioned points' wrong?
You have a strike out/ power point style way of making you disillusioned point.
You haven't shown me any science. Have a look at this, a paper by Dean and Houston showing there is no acceleration in the rate of sea level rise.
You promote an agenda without actually addressing the science and observations.
Just to clarify…even if all of the atmospheric CO2 increase is manmade, I continue to believe it is more beneficial than harmful.
Do you really believe the spike in CO2 we are observing is caused by something else besides our fossil fuel consumption?
Since the first aerial photos were taken in 1932, Louisiana has lost roughly 5,000 square kilometers of coastal real estate, and not just to sea level rise. “It’s actually what I would call drowning,” Twilley says. Compacting sediments, oil and gas extraction, and canal dredging, among other factors, are causing Louisiana’s coastline to sink into the sea.

Global carbon (C) emissions from fossil fuel use were 9.795 gigatonnes (Gt) in 2014 (or 35.9 GtCO2 of carbon dioxide). Fossil fuel emissions were 0.6% above emissions in 2013 and 60% above emissions in 1990 (the reference year in the Kyoto Protocol).
