LOLZ

Love the satire.

Maybe satire, but it's also true.

We'll never get off this rock if they have their way.

How many scientists say something needs to be done right now to change the future?



@ 1.6% of them, if data is accurate.

the 97% scientist thing is an internet myth.

www.econlib.org...


The Scientific Consensus on Climate Change




IPCC states unequivocally that the consensus of scientific opinion is that Earth's climate is being affected by human activities: “Human activities … are modifying the concentration of atmospheric constituents … that absorb or scatter radiant energy.


How Do We Know that Humans Are the Major Cause of Global Warming?




We know that warming—and cooling—has happened in the past, and long before humans were around. Many factors (called “climate drivers”) can influence Earth’s climate—such as changes in the sun’s intensity and volcanic eruptions, as well as heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere.





Scientists agree that today’s warming is primarily caused by humans putting too much carbon in the atmosphere, like when we choose to extract and burn coal, oil, and gas, or cut down and burn forests.

Scientists have gathered evidence and have improved their methods for teasing apart natural and human factors. Today scientists have very high confidence about human-caused global average surface temperature increase – a key climate indicator. They have reported on their growing confidence through successive climate assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).


Scientific consensus: Earth's climate is warming




Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals1 show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree*: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities. In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position.


Climate change: How do we know?




The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is extremely likely (greater than 95 percent probability) to be the result of human activity since the mid-20th century and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented over decades to millennia.1


And from the paper he was referencing

Quantifying the consensus on anthropogenic global warming in the scientific literature




Among abstracts expressing a position on AGW, 97.1% endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming.

Among self-rated papers expressing a position on AGW, 97.2% endorsed the consensus.



Surveys of climate scientists have found strong agreement (97–98%) regarding AGW amongst publishing climate experts

Conclusion
The number of papers rejecting AGW is a miniscule proportion of the published research, with the percentage slightly decreasing over time. Among papers expressing a position on AGW, an overwhelming percentage (97.2% based on self-ratings, 97.1% based on abstract ratings) endorses the scientific consensus on AGW.

There'd be a mathematicians consensus that 2+2 =1000 if benefited the political agenda of the left.

It is arrogance on the rights part that they believe they know more than scientists and are choosing to ignore the facts presented to them on man made climate change.

Oh yeah it is not a hoax that the 97% believe man is the cause of thischange in climate nor has it been debunked.

Let's blame the Bany Boomers, LOL it's the new prejudice. Yet so much change and progress happened along turmoil and war. Just like every generation will have its triumphs and failures. Mostly though its an overly simplistic view to a very complex time and naivety about how any other could have done better. I love science but science is not always correct in its predictions. Took years and billions of dollars to get nuclear fission, and even then the outcome was uncertain. Some were afraid a test would ignite the atmosphere, others that it was unachievable all together.

So yes, of course, let's do our best to curtail pollution of all kinds but find a balance. Saying we have 12 years till the point of no return come on man that's hyperbole at least and flat out lying at the best. As been mentioned the scary thing isn't AOC cause it's obvious she hasn't a clue, and won't find many allies even among the Dems. The scary thing is she might be the single best reason that gets Trump re-elected, cause it does put a face on this socialistic bent the left has. It will splinter the DNC vote and will be easy pickings for Trump in the general elections. Want to get the now mostly conservative boomers to vote en masse tell them they suck and it's their fault LOL.

Yes arrogance that you idiots are pushing the lie that man made climate change is not real because you think you know more than they do.

I say let morons like you live in ignorance and when everything goes to hell, we should ignore your cries for help and let nature do it's job. Survival of the fittest also means that the dumbest of us will die off sooner or later, so I say good luck to you, you're gonna need it.

Except there are facts to back that "propaganda" up. What do you got? Nothing


Unwarranted Extrapolation - the tendency to make huge predictions about the future on the basis of a few small facts is a common logical fallacy.

Gawd you're an idiot, there are more than a few small facts to go with their predictions.

I am researching new science and got a thread started on here with a good discussion reiterating everything. I think this science will help find solutions to the climate change issue.

I looked that up. The source seems to be coming from Washington Examiner.


Then you failed miserably.

From the text of the resolution itself:


(2) the goals described in subparagraphs (A) through (E) of paragraph (1) (referred to in this resolution as the “Green New Deal goals”) should be accomplished through a 10-year national mobilization (referred to in this resolution as the “Green New Deal mobilization”) that will require the following goals and projects—
...
(E) upgrading all existing buildings in the United States and building new buildings to achieve maximum energy efficiency, water efficiency, safety, affordability, comfort, and durability, including through electrification;

emphasis mine
H.Res.109 — 116th Congress (2019-2020)

upgrading all existing buildings i




CBECS estimates that there were 5.6 million commercial buildings in the United States in 2012, comprising 87 billion square feet of floorspace.
]

www.eia.gov...

87 billion * $400 sq foot( low ball estimate)

$34,800,000,000,000 Not including private residences.

Someone double check the math plz.

Well, for starters, no, this country isn't a Democracy.

Also, just to clarify, are you saying that it doesn't matter what scientists say, because there are more non-scientists than there are scientists in America?
You're basically saying that facts don't matter to you, because there are fewer scientists than non-scientists. Am I reading that right?
If I'm not, what did you mean?

Well, don't forget that most buildings built before about 1960 cannot really be retrofitted to be 'smart / green' buildings. Sure, you can do a few things to them, but generally the structures themselves are not suited for green technology.

In any case, your per sq. ft. estimate is a little high. Commercial space (not special use space like hospitals, etc.) is usually around $175-$200 / sq. ft. to refit. To that you would have to add the green technology which, under these new plans, should be "free", right? 100% government subsidized.

I guess I am.

Anyone that tries to take more power over my life, more money from my wallet opinions don't matter to me.

Because I won't GD stand for it.

And i wouldn't call them scientists.

Because REAL ones follow the Scientific method, and will never say,' The Science is settled'.

Is it?

Figure in 'collective bargaining' cause the refit will be done by the borg aka union workers.

Still think I low balled it.

Because a refit of every building would take decades.
