Earth is becoming a toaster-oven. The global warming denialists are pushing us into an apocalypse, and they deserve the gravest of punishments.

Clearly human-induced global warming is rubbish. Just a week or 2 ago we had a major news story saying that the rate of warming in the latest IPCC report was altered down to nearly half of the previous report. Sure, the newspaper in question deliberately compared the previous warming rate of 2% a decade over the last 15 years to the current report's 1.2% a decade over the last 60 years, but who cares, even if the actual equivalent 60 year rate didn't really change from the last report to this one. What is important is that the newspaper said that their misreading of the data showed that the IPCC are incompetent, especially when you don't read their reports correctly.

Add to that the FACT that global warming has pretty much stopped since 1998, despite actual temperatures having continued to rise since then despite lower solar activity and la-nina ocean patterns that usually result in lower global temperatures during this time. Really, how can we trust science when slogans are so much more factual. Scientists can't be trusted anyway because they only want to get paid for their work. Can't trust anyone who gets paid for what they do. I'll only believe journalists, hacks, and those 3% of scientists paid for by oil company funded groups. Only they can be trusted because they mustn't be paid for what they do, even though they are.

...and that is why this world is in such a mess.

If warming has stalled then how can it be getting warmer? That doesn't make sense. Either the world is getting hotter or it isn't.

Al Gore was right! I am sure he has stopped jetting around on these CO2-belching jets...

Global warming since industrial era is a fact. Increase in the ocean level is a fact. Responsibility of mankind for that (50%+) is a fact. What else some people need to persuade themselves to re-think their way of life? Pathetic egoism!

If the Flat Earth Society can really exist in this day and age, how does anyone expect their cousins drunk on climate change Denial to get with the program?

Who decided that the IPCC group are "leading scientists", and since when is science decided by the press? Fact is, the "man made global warming" agenda is entirely political. As the UN activists have admitted themselves in unguarded moments. To wit:

"One must say clearly that we want to redistribute the world`s wealh by climate policy". (Ottmar Edenhofer, United Nations IPCC)

Of course my post above should have read 0.2 and 0.12 instead of 2 and 1.2, but JT doesn't allow follow-up posting or editing. It's OK, though, as everyone knows that one typo must automatically mean that everything said is wrong anyway.

Those who don't believe that global warming is a real threat are probably basing their opinion on the opinion of others, or information gained from biased articles rather than actual facts. There is also too much speculation and conjecture. The same holds true for those who believe that global warming is a real threat. Therefore the real truth about global warming is that we may never know the real truth. There is simply too much disinformation in the world today to accept anything as absolute truth except the truths that were previously established before deception became the norm. It is obvious that something seems to be playing out behind the scenes of our world. In this modern era trying to find the truth is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

"Responsibility of mankind for 50% of global warming is a fact"

So, Mother Nature is responsible for only 50%? You sure?

I guess people have forgotten about Climate Gate, which exposed how scientific papers critical of the man-made global warming hypothesis were blocked. That is why the "scientific community" APPEARS unanimous.

The "man made global warming" believers want to tell us that man-created CO2 content in the atmosphere is the sole cause of climate change, and that we can control the planetary climate like an airconditions.

But just look at the numbers: The CO2 content in the atmosphere is currently about 0.038%. Of that 0.038 %, roughly 4% are man made. That means 0.00152 %! Lets go the whole hog and say we could reduce that by one third. So they are talking about a gas making up 0.0005 % of the atmosphere, and THAT, they want to tell us, CONTROLS the climate?

If you want a definition of insanity, look no further.

The whole "global warming" agenda is political, as even the politiians themselves admit sometimes.

"One must say clearly that we want to redistribute the world`s wealh by climate policy". (Ottmar Edenhofer, United Nations IPCC)

" It said warming had slowed “in roughly equal measure” because of random variations in the climate and the impact of factors such as volcanic eruptions, when ash dims sunshine, and a cyclical decline in the sun’s output."

…a cyclical decline in the sun's output…

Well, let's see; we are currently in the midst of this solar cycle's MAXIMUM which has been remarkably weak, the weakest in 100 years. The previous cycle was also weak, though not as weak as this one. If the upcoming MINIMUM is as weak as anticipated, or extended, then there may be winter festivals on the Thames again. Watch the bright ball in the sky.

Again, anybody who believes that of all the factors affecting the global climate, the only that counts is a gas that makes up 0.00152 % of the atmosphere, needs swtich on his/her critical thinking ability.

By the way, before the UN jumped on the CO2 bandwagon, the blamed cow farts for climate change. I am not making this up, google it.

The warming effect created by greenhouse gases (of which carbon dioxide is the foremost, as far as quantity is concerned) depends on their molecule counts. The quantity ratio between these gases and other elements of the atmosphere, which do not create a warming effect, is irrelevant.

YGHome3:

" The warming effect created by greenhouse gases (of which carbon dioxide is the foremost, as far as quantity is concerned) depends on their molecule counts. The quantity ratio between these gases and other elements of the atmosphere, which do not create a warming effect, is irrelevant. "

How do you come up with stuff like that? I pointed out that CO2 is an very tiny component of the atmosphere, and the human-created component of that an even tinier. 0.00152 %.... let that number sink in. And by the way, the UN itself is on record claiming that CH4 (methane) has a bigger greenhouse effect than CO2. Look it up! But since it is difficult to regulate cow farts (even the IPCC members and the activist politicians want to eat their hamburgers), they simply ignore those reports and concentrate on CO2, which is very practical for them, because it is phantastic political power play setting up artificial extortions schemes like "carbon trading".

If this anything more than a political scam, they could not get away with ignoring the CH4 issue.

Earth is becoming a toaster-oven. The global warming denialists are pushing us into an apocalypse, and they deserve the gravest of punishments.

Where is the proof for this ridiculous statement? Since 1998 we have been in a period of global cooling. Also, what exactly is a "denialist," and why the extreme condemnation of someone with a different opinion? I am not a "denialist," but I do not believe in the "anthropogenic global warming" scam. Nor do I believe that climate change, which has been around since the beginning of the planet, is a problem. Nor do I believe that CO2 is an "evil pollutant," either. It is actually essential for the planet, the very gas of life. Yet, people who dare to disagree with and to question the junk science and Marxist ideology that is "global warming" theory, " deserve the gravest of punishments?" That, sir, is bordering on Fascism. Hardly surprising, though. An Austrian professor is on record recently as stating that " global warming deniers should get the Death Penalty." Using such language shows the nature if the political dogma that is man made global warming. It is a political movement, based on junk science. The Climategate Scandal a few years ago alerted us to the true nature of the beast.
