Global Warming on Pluto Puzzles Scientists

Pluto's atmospheric pressure has tripled over the past 14 years, indicating a stark temperature rise, the researchers said. The change is likely a seasonal event, much as seasons on Earth change as the hemispheres alter their inclination to the Sun during the planet's annual orbit.

Explain that?

Also Jupiter
New Storm on Jupiter Hints at Climate Change


The latest images could provide evidence that Jupiter is in the midst of a global change that can modify temperatures by as much as 10 degrees Fahrenheit on different parts of the globe.

This growth signals a temperature increase in that region, she said.

OMG we need a copenhagen treaty for Pluto and Jupiter as well


And Mars!
Mars Melt Hints at Solar, Not Human, Cause for Warming, Scientist Says


Simultaneous warming on Earth and Mars suggests that our planet's recent climate changes have a natural—and not a human-induced—cause, according to one scientist's controversial theory.
Abdussamatov believes that changes in the sun's heat output can account for almost all the climate changes we see on both planets.

Debunked as far as i'm concerned.
Global Warming.. oh i'm sorry Climate Change is occuring throughout our galaxy and even beyond as far as we know.

Sun is getting hotter


In what could be the simplest explanation for one component of global warming, a new study shows the Sun's radiation has increased by .05 percent per decade since the late 1970s.

"This trend is important because, if sustained over many decades, it could cause significant climate change," Willson said.

Anything else?


That 7 year old space.com article has been debunked quite a few times:

Global Warming is a con game.

The elite couldn't get away with this nonsense without useful idiots who support them.

This is a dangerous movement that will control people's behavior in the name of saving the planet. But all these people screaming global warming are still living good and they have carbon footprints the size of king kongs foot. Look Al Gore or these hollywood liberals.

If this was really life and death, then Al Gore and these liberals would woodchip a few houses and start riding bikes.

Also, it an excuse to kill millions or billions of people in the name of saving the planet and reducing the population. It's really a sick and twisted ideology.

The Bible says this about the antichrist,"In the name of peace, he will destroy many."

Global Warming is belief the Taliban would love. They try to control behavior in the name of Islam. With global warming, the elite will try to control behavior in the name of saving the planet.

Very dangerous.

I call the game "Showing people who claim others are being duped are actually the one's being duped".

You cited and old study used by climate skeptics that ...

A) Actually showed that solar influence stopped in 1975 while temperatures have sky rocketed since then. Of course this little gem of a conclusion was conveniently left out.

B) That all big energy has to do is take an actual study that proved that Sun was not an influence and warp its findings and feed it to people like you so you can plaster it on internet BB's to confuse the populace.

Your post is a picture perfect example of how you have been duped by Big energy and instead looking at the actual facts right in front of your face you are doing the job of defending them.

Just think about that for a second Mate you are actually helping confuse people of what is really happening. Something that will effect their lives and those around them.

When all you have to do is look at the evidence from THOUSANDS of Scientists and come to the conclusion that this is real and what can we do to fix it.

The Ozone depletion was a real problem solved by government intervention by banning harmful CFC's.


Prove it was a problem and then prove it was solved. Oh, and as I linked before, the Australians are still getting skin cancer in massive amounts. They are probably not getting enough sun.



Here is a Wiki link of all things that explain just who this farsicle is and what they are about.


What the hell is a ‘farsicle’…is it like a popsicle which isn’t? Anyone can write a Wikipedia link, that is the point of Wikipedia. It does not prove anything at all….sigh. But what can I expect from the brainwashed.



You mean the group that has been shown to be a shill put up by Big Energy that manipulated people and has been found to be fraud.


Can a group of thirty one thousand disparate people not knowing who else is signing, including 9,000 PhD recipients, who are apparently all easily manipulated, actually be classed as ‘a shill’? ‘Group of shills’ or ‘exceptionally large and unprecedented group of shills’ would seem the more correct terms, although equally inaccurate as any statement of truth.

Your inaccuracies and lack of care in writing and thinking lead me to believe there is no further point in any discourse with you. That’s the polite version anyway.
Silly boy.

Urghh.


So let me get this straight.

You do not believe thousands of the worlds scientists including 312 of the worlds leading Climatologists and the entire breath of the scientific communtity and all the peer reviewed data and statistics ....

Yet you believe the oil companies who have controlled commerce with an iron fist and has been instrumental in holding back new techonologies, holding the middle class hostage with price increases and polluting this world.

...and you your evidence is the Bible talking about an Anti Christ.

Yet the Bible never ONCE even mentions that word...Anti Christ.

Wow.

Deny ignorance eh? ....

This place is chock full of it.


What would be more plausible? Thousands of Scientists, Universities, Non for Profit research groups and Government run agencies like NASA all conspiring this Global Climate Change Hoax

or

Big Oil convincing people that it is all a big hoax with zero evidence to back up their claim and loads of bull crap.

Hmmmmmmm....tough one.

Moreover, I have cited real examples to make my claims of Government fixing problems in relation to our environment.

I have posted clear retorts to asinine assertions from the globalpetition group is a fraud to the Sun not being the reason for Climate change.

All I have gotten back is even more ignorance and NO PROOF TO BACK UP YOUR CLAIMS.

I have provided the evidence.

I have provided the explanations.

I have provided the examples.

It is the skeptics that have not provided anything that has been proven true with actual concrete evidence.

Wrong.

This is the problem with fanatics and believers in global warming. They will follow these crooks off of a cliff in the name of saving the planet.

These guys could care less about this nonsense. They just see it as another way to control individuals lives. Sadly, useful idiots foolow them blindly.

There are many scientist who say that this global warming nonsense is overhyped. The problem with blind believers, they don't want to hear an opposing position. They want to live in fantasy land.

This is why Al Gore doesn't debate the issue. He just wants to make millions while preaching to the choir.

[ex31,486 American scientists have signed this petition,
including 9,029 with PhDs

The project has fulfilled the expectations of its organizers. In PhD scientist signers alone, the project already includes 15-times more scientists than are seriously involved in the United Nations IPCC process. The very large number of petition signers demonstrates that, if there is a consensus among American scientists, it is in opposition to the human-caused global warming hypothesis rather than in favor of it.

Moreover, the current totals of 31,486 signers, including 9,029 PhDs, are limited only by Petition Project resources. With more funds for printing and postage, these numbers would be much higher.

www.petitionproject.org...

Again, the blind believers on the global warming side will only hear their blind belief.

Here's a video of the weather channel founder.
www.youtube.com...

Al Gore and the scientist at the UN don't want to debate the issue. They say it's settled. This is a belief system. You always debate these things and if you are right then reason and logic will win the day.

The global Warming belief system is scared of reason and logic they just want to appeal to emotion.

I'm an enviromentalist and I'm in favor of green technology but I know when these crooks scream life or death and they try to rush things without debate, it's a lie.

These people screaming global warming are still living the carbon producing lifestyle that they love. They just depend on the useful idiots to use one sheet of toilet paper and live in a tree house.

For humans to think they can change the overall temperature of the climate of earth through higher taxes, using one sheet of toilet paper or redistribution of wealth and to underdeveloped countries is just silly.

This is because these crooks will not redistribute anything. They will transfer wealth from places like America and use that wealth to enrich themselves and these underdeveloped countries will be in the same shape.

It's a big lie to gain more control over peoples behavior and control populations.

Cool someone actually posted the GlobalPetition.Org movement ...AGAIN.

In case if you missed it earlier the GlobalPetition.ORG group has been found to be a massive fraud and a paid shill for Big Energy.

Don't bother doing the research I will post it here for you.


The petition had a covering letter from Frederick Seitz, and made reference to his former position as president of the US National Academy of Sciences, accompanied by an attached article supporting the petition. The current version of Seitz's letter describes the article as "a twelve page review of information on the subject of 'global warming'."[9] The article is titled "Environmental Effects of Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide" by Arthur B. Robinson, Noah E. Robinson, and Willie Soon.[10][11][12]. (One of these earlier petitions and presentation was discussed by Lahsen (2005). [13]

The 1997 version of the article states that "over the past two decades, when CO2 levels have been at their highest, global average temperatures have actually cooled slightly" and says that this was based on comparison of satellite data (for 1979-1997) and balloon data from 1979-96. At the time the petition was written, this was unclear. Since then the satellite record has been revised, and shows warming. (See historical temperature record and satellite temperature measurements.)

The article followed the identical style and format of a contribution to Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a scientific journal,[6] even including a date of publication ("October 26") and volume number ("Vol. 13: 149-164 1999"), but was not actually a publication of the National Academy. Raymond Pierrehumbert, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Chicago, said that the article was "designed to be deceptive by giving people the impression that the article...is a reprint and has passed peer review." Pierrehumbert also said the article was full of "half-truths".[14] F. Sherwood Rowland, who was at the time foreign secretary of the National Academy of Sciences, said that the Academy received numerous inquiries from researchers who "are wondering if someone is trying to hoodwink them."[14]

After the petition appeared, the National Academy of Sciences said in a 1998 news release that "The NAS Council would like to make it clear that this petition has nothing to do with the National Academy of Sciences and that the manuscript was not published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences or in any other peer-reviewed journal."[15] It also said "The petition does not reflect the conclusions of expert reports of the Academy." The NAS further noted that its own prior published study had shown that "even given the considerable uncertainties in our knowledge of the relevant phenomena, greenhouse warming poses a potential threat sufficient to merit prompt responses. Investment in mitigation measures acts as insurance protection against the great uncertainties and the possibility of dramatic surprises."[16]


In a 2006 article the magazine Vanity Fair stated: "Today, Seitz admits that 'it was stupid' for the Oregon activists to copy the academy's format. Still, he doesn't understand why the academy felt compelled to disavow the petition, which he continues to cite as proof that it is "not true" there is a scientific consensus on global warming"[17]

As of October 2007, the petition project website includes an article by Arthur Robinson, Noah E. Robinson and Willie Soon, published in 2007 in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.[18] Noah E. Robinson presented this material at Telecosm 2007 titled "The Global Warming Myth".[19]


LINK to the rest of the cold hard truth that you believe information from fools instead of actual scientists.

As for your tree hugging rant.

When Government banned the use of CFC's so the Ozone could be saved did that change your life. Did the Government then tell you how to live or change your life in any way?

When Government forced catalytic converters and mileage standards so we could lower smog levels did that change your life for the worse?

Actually, it did, it cost me (and everyone that did) more to change over to the new standards and initially the cost of air conditioners and fridges went up. On Cat Converters, we now have a tax grab and forced vehicle emission standard inspection every two years (and on buying any used vehicle less than 20 years old), plus the hidden tax increases caused by inflation (since all these costs are passed down to we little people) as well as direct taxation to support new idiot bureaucrats. How many more costs have been impacted by say just CFC's and Cat Converters?

So your point was again?

On your next post try signing Allexxis alt-F4 ;-)

I would agree that there was an upward cost to moving to removing CFC's and to Catalytic converters. However how much is too much when you are dealing with the Ozone or clean air.

Surely the small price we payed was worth the cost.

Make no mistake I do not like the idea of taxing carbon. I believe their are much better ways of learning to cope with climate change that is easy to bare for the average folk.

My contention is simple, once everyone sitting at the table agrees that Global Climate change is real we can then move together on how best to deal with the situation.

This is a very real problem.

I will ask a very simple question. What did you expect would happen if all the worlds leaders (+ others from their country) decide to meet all in the same location? I would say a LOT of traffic. It would be impossible to do it otherwise.

Another fact is that all the limos you talk about are ALL tanked up with bio fuel. This fuel is more neutral than normal fossil fuels. So your facts and source are a little wrong.

Another very cool fact is that a newly finished hotel is opening just for COP15. This new hotel is the first hotel in the world which is totally energy independent. It is energy-neutral. The hotel provides itself all its energy through solar panels on its sides. It cleans its own water.

This topic is WAY WAY to dark. Cheer up and act like adult people.

Much have been done to secure as little CO2 footprint as possible for the COP15. It would be impossible to do this without some CO2 footprint. The leaders need to meet FACE TO FACE to get a deal done.

[edit on 7-12-2009 by DwaynetheSpecious]


On the following web site they offer the following hotels:

2 star x 6
3 star x 42
4 star x 44
5 star x 6

plus 5 hostels

The site states

"More than 10.000 rooms in the greater Copenhagen and Malmö area (S) have been reserved for the participants of the Cop15. The hotels will be listed according to star rating (2-5) and hostels separately."

which one is energy neutral ?


As for biofuel being kinder to the environment this is still being debated


There are differences in biofuel... and one of them is how the actual fuel is made, not only how it threats the atmosphere. The bio-fuel used by the limos are a product of hay - its called grass bio-fuel - read more here: www.reap-canada.com...

Instead of setting me up to be some sort of liar then look at this page:
www.co2neutral-hotels.com...

Currently 5 CO2 neutral hotels are located in Copenhagen alone! Some of them have even been neutral for quite some time.

I'm not trying to say that this event will be neutral, because that thought alone would be a #ing stupid thought.

The only thing I'm trying to say is that many people have done an effort to try and minimize the CO2 footprint. Respect for that.

The very sad thing is, that if say Obama was found coked up to the eyeballs pleasuring himself with a donkey, there would be masses of numpty people who would say ‘Aww, he needs to relax. What is wrong with that? There’s nothing wrong with drugs they should be legalised. What the man does to relax is nobody’s business.’
Rather than the appropriate response which is that ‘If a man is found to have taken coc aine and is in the position of President, he shall be marched forthwith, at gunpoint, out of the White House, never to be seen again.’
There is no expectation of decency, morality, faithfulness, a sane mind not fried from drugs, mental stability, honour or even common decency. No wonder we get these idiots in power, if nobody cares.

*sigh* There just is no reasoning with some people. Your posts are decidedly polarizing. You are either a believer in Climate change or you are a big oil/energy shill. I don't think its that simple and you are leaving out a lot of players.

And why are we discussing big oil/energy into the mix when this thread was not about it? Unless you believe any leaks or opposing studies are funded solely by big oil for nefarious purposes to destroy mankind through pollution, however that topic of discussion was not mentioned. I think you should be aware that big government is just as bad as big capitalist companies and more so. With big government, there isn't really anything you can do competitively, though the argument could cut both ways. No one cares if you don't like taxes, pay them or go to jail. That's the main rub.

I have my own views on climate change. What I am wondering is, are there any plans being made to maybe possibly move off of the planet and start new on another?? I mean, in the end, earth is going to be destroyed when the sun burns out and becomes a super nova or black hole.

Why not start a program that lets us colonize other planets???
