Glacial melt and thermal expansion. Warmer water is "bigger" than cooler water. I think that in the case of Hawaii, warmer water is the principle cause. My opinion, in part, is a result of my conversation with Dr. Fletcher (SOEST).
However, the globe has been warming since the little ice age!
Know the answers? Hardly. But developing plans and implementing them does indeed take money.
We know the answers and just need money to implement them.
Yes. It is. AGW has never happened in the entire history of the planet, until the last 100 years.
But AGW is unprecedented (no its not).
Right. It's not your problem. Yet. Good luck with that.
NO i do not want to spend money on it. Its not my problem. Let the people of Florida spend their money on it if they want to live there!
No. It's your opinion against physics and data.
Now its just opinion against mine.
No. I say that the data is not clear that it was a global warming event.
I say the MWP is a global event, you thnk it isn't.
Green is good, I guess. As far as increased crop productivity, that probably has more to do with the increased use of herbicides, irrigation, and fertilizer than increased CO2 levels. But climate change means that. It means climates change. Places that were favorable won't be. This will affect a whole lot of people. But not you. Of course.
I say CO2 rising has, so far, been a happy event with crop increases and greening of the earth, you say it hasn't.
And by their inaction?
By their actions, shall you know them
