Yes I think this should be turned into a research project. The scope and of which would need some discussion.
It comes as no surprise that the Freepers have a GW debunking category. These are the same people that are buying Hummers and writing them off as a
tax break. Heres a few of the latest threads..
Researchers question key global-warming study
Heres the gist, McIntyre & McKitrick think Manns data was dirty and miscalculated. Too bad the data has been checked and re-checked by dozens of
other academia, only to be proven again and again. Even McIntyre & McKitrick concluded that there is indeed warming, but only specified that it isnt
as warm as the medieval maxim. The study in question is actually 5 years old. One look at the most recent data and you can see that warming is
occurring, and at a rapid rate.
Same Old Arctic Warming
Is the Arctic warming? Yes, for the past 20 years it has warmed at a rate of about half a degree per century, or five thousandths (0.005) of a degree
He shouldve taken a look at the latest anomaly map before writing that article. The temperature increase in certain polar areas has been anywhere
from 6 degrees to 18 degrees in just the last 90 days!!! In fact the poles are in real bad shape
"Although changes in Arctic circulation patterns may alter the distribution of ice thickness in the Arctic, we conclude that a continuation of the
previously observed increase in melt season length will lead to a further overall thinning of the Arctic ice."
Lead author of the research, which appeared in yesterday's issue of the British science weekly journal Nature, is Seymour Laxon of the Centre for
Polar Observation and Modelling, which is part of University College London.
Last Friday, NASA published satellite images showing that the northern polar ice cap has been shrinking by 10 percent per decade during the past
Suspending disaster: the myth of global warming
Only argument here is that C02 is a beneficial greenhouse gas. Sorry no mention of methane or other hydrocarbons. Nor is there any mention of ocean
temperatures, salinity and currents. And the author also makes wild assumptions..
Many scientists have concluded that carbon dioxide doesn't even affect climate.
The interaction of the carbon cycle and the climate has long, long been established.
The Pacific and the Atlantic are both showing 2-4 degree warming in just the past 90 days! On land, theres only a handful of locations that are
actually cooling. I think the data meshes with the models. Glaciers are in retreat. Ice caps are melting. Sea level is rising. Salinity is falling.
These are all indications of forced heating.
