The Earth doesn't lie.
Yeah it is especially since some people get their talking points from whatever the current administration says.
Then just regurgitate what ever it says.
LOL! The whole "you are an obamabot" thing was played out 5 years ago. I
It is a form of projection because no one is more dedicated at respewing whatever their parties tell them than conservatives.
I have been studying the environment since the Regean administration.
Still distracting from the fact that you are out of arguments I see.
A skeptic questions popular belief, but to be outright devoted to a subject where no amount of education sways you from your opinion, it is not skepticism, it is fanaticism.
An extreme form of disconfirmation bias, or spending unreasonable amount of energy or emotion into disproving information that we find do not gel to our views.
You are not seeking truth. You are not here to deny ignorance. You just want to be angry.
Republicans aren't going to accept responsibility for Climate Change. They have no concept of the past. They don't even think the economy was in trouble until Obama took office. And now they're expected to look at data that goes way back beyond the current administration? Can't be done.
The science supports your thinking for the short term outlook. Not much short of completely stopping the human production of CO2 will have much effect on the next 50 to 75 years. Obviously that won't (can't) happen.
Is it too late to fix it? I'm thinking a resounding yes.
At his state of the union address, the President of the United States stated that "...the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact."
To address this issue, we need first examine what the President was getting at. Was he expressing the notion of "global warming" (which has morphed into the climate change) and saying that it is a fact or was he stating the known of the Earth, that climate does change?
My guess is that he is advocating for the first, that we humans are effecting the climate adversely. If that is so, the evidence is scant to none in this argument. No one scientist can point to any data that can prove that human activity is driving climate in one direction or another. There are models, there are theories, but there is not concrete evidence that Man has diverted the course of the Earth and its natural system in regards to the weather.
I challenge ATS to show otherwise....edit on 30-1-2014 by ownbestenemy because: Grammar edits...
All the proof in the world is out there. But this is a typical argument of a skeptic, that never becomes more educated or well rounded, never advancing, it is always the same, tired, worn out arguments.
It is the sun
the Antarctic has more ice
the IPCC is wrong
scientists are paid off
its the natural cycle
the earth is cooling
hasn't warmed in 15 years
they predicted an ice age in the 70s
You will see these same arguments on every discussion about GW. All of which have been thoroughly debunked for years.
Last but not least "there is not enough evidence. "
Data supporting GW has come from every branch of science, from thousands of scientists around the world, from almost 200 countries.
Which is why deniers have to resort to blogs written by 13 year olds or total nut jobs to try to find any proof that supports their viewpoint.
Because, the evidence of work from thousands of scientists isn't proof, but some crackpot blog that you had to really search for, is.
Of course there isn't evidence to support GW if the only place you are looking for proof is the crumbs that are under your mouse pad.
It's a solar cycle, nothing more.

Really. Think about that for just a second. Neptune receives a miniscule amount of radiation from the Sun. The Earth receives thousands of times more. Do you really think that if the Sun were warming enough to raise the temperature on Neptune at all, it would only raise the temperature on Earth only a few tenths of a degree.
A year on Neptune lasts 165 years. The seasons on Neptune don't run on the same schedule that they do on Earth.
But aside from that, perhaps you could provide some actual data which shows that solar radiation has increased significantly in the past 100 years.
