Bah - they keep using the "it's local, not global" crap to justify the flawed arguments.
The argument is that CO2 traps heat, that we are releasing more CO2 which is trapping more heat, right?
So how in the hell do they explain the required heat loss to get record low temps?
I also find it laughable that they think the last 150 years of temperature records are bullet-proof when it is widely known that most of the data is
trash for one reason or another!
It is vitally important that thermometers are screened and sited in such a way that the installation itself does not affect the measurements, but even
today we have not got this right, and many sites fail on one or both counts!
It is complete and utter madness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am absolutely sick of arguing what is a fundamental point regarding temperature data, only for the pro MMGW camp to say "the scientists said" or
"the IPCC said" or "what do you know?". What do I know? Obviously a damn sight more than YOU, you nieve moron! Go study physics and quit wasting my
A question for those pro MMGW: if CO2 is causing the planet to heat up by preventing the earth from losing its heat to space, how are record lows
To save you some typing, I have already seen the argument that because one part of the world is particularly cold, the other is particularly warm.
This makes zero sense, and demonstrates a total lack of understanding for the topic.
To re-cap on the basic physics: the Sun warms the planet (strange but true
). The earth absorbs the radiation at one frequency, and emits it in
another. The heat doesn't magically move from the colder to the warmer place simply because it is colder - this is totally impossible!
Sure air masses move, but the fundamental heat loss is from the ground in the IR spectrum. The wind can blow all it likes, the heat source ain't
I am once again wasting my time.
