Anyone Not Believe In Global Warming?

Recommended Posts

Gloabal warming isn't a belief system.

You either understand it or you don't.

Thats not as much a gamble as you might think. Its a good 100 years above the waterline. I saw some plots for sale in Belize that were on a reef, 75km offshore. Thats a gamble.

It is undeniable the human race is, by consuming fossil fuels, increasing to the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

What the consequences of this will be, whether it will lead to cooling, warming, whether it dominates over natural contributors such as volcanoes, natural solar cycles I think no-one really knows. The earths climate has varied considerably through history, despite there being no humans present. There is strong evidence for this.

It's not like the ozone hole where cause and effect could be established fairly rapidly. It will be years before anyone knows for certain what the consequences will be.

I sit on the fence, because the science isn't good enough to allow me to do anything else.

The difference is the rate of change.

In 100years man has increased concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere by the same amount that it took nature 100,000years.

Billions of tonnes of CO2 is being added by man, explain how nature can suddenly start absorbing it? what is there in nature that has suddenly evolved to compensate for this massive output of gas??

Now if that were £10k I might be tempted as a fun purchase.

For £145k I would want a real house.

There are chalets up the cliff from there that look tempting. Friend of mine who is an artist with bohemian tendencies lives in one all-year-round and loves it.

Some volcanoes can release an astonishing amount of SO2 (a much more efficient greenhouse gas than CO2) in a very small amount of time. Flood lava flows can also do this.

In the past the concentration of CO2 and SO2 has been much higher than it is now. In the past the earth has also been a giant frozen over snowball according to some hypothesis.

The world's climate and concentration of greenhouse gases has varied massively in the past, so has the suns energy output, without our efforts and will no doubt do so in the future, whether we like it or not.
