I still wonder why people insist in trying to proove global warming ain't happening. Lets see: on one side it not happening but we think it is, and we spend money trying to make cars more efficient, ways to reduce immissions etc. Result? More research on cars etc and cleaner power. Perhaps the money invested into this research may even help the economy by creating jobs etc. On the other, we don't believe it, but it does happen, the earth gets uninhabitable, all but the very rich die. So I recon, lets go with the global warming, the consequences are rather less dire...

Without choosing either side on the global warming issue, I must point out that thousands and thousands of scientists have been wrong many times before. e.g. The Earth is the center of the Universe/Galaxy. The world is flat. Nothing, not even light/radiation can escape black holes. The facts are not democratic and the number of scientists repeating a claim doesn't make it a fact.

Dude it's time to freak!

You people are arguing when you both agree on the same thing. That's pretty stupid. You all need to check your sources and shut the hell up.

"Secondly, there was NEVER a scientific consensus" There isn't one now - that's the whole point!
2008-03-07 01:47:42
Uh... I don't even know how to reply, your comment was so stupid. Why don't you go find out what "blind faith" means? If you think going by scientific research is blind faith, well......
2008-03-07 01:37:39
People who put blind faith in science and research studies have not done any research studies. gb

this is a good reminder to not believe everything you read
2008-02-11 00:35:15
No, but my sources are (the ones I cited and others, I'm always willing to provide my sources but I can't possibly cite every single fact). Nobody else is citing what they are saying.

No one, using scientific evidence, can argue that the glove is not warming. The argument is over whether we are causing the warming. But let me put it this way: Why does it matter? Pollution damages people's health and destroys the beautiful environment. Is that not enough reason to reduce pollution already? Is dwindling resources and skyrocketing prices not reason enough already to conserve and create tech that uses less energy?

Are you?

Are you?

Actually changing prevailing winds and the like due to warming would cause some areas to cool down, even if the logic you used wasn't redneck logic.

Americans just not want to believe in global warming. They pay 'scienticists' to write on the journals that it's all bullshit..that's so ridiculous

First off, this isn't about politics. This is about science. Secondly, no we can't change the past but we CAN change the future. And finally, what are your qualifications for saying that complete piece of BS? Are you a climatologist? Have you studied this all your life like the thousands and thousands of scientists who have devoted their lives to studying the climate and how it affects everything? Are you a statistician who has reviewed all the thousands and thousands of papers on this issue and have published papers on peer-reviewed journals pointing out the flaws in the numbers? Unless the answer was "yes" to any of those questions, please just shut up because nobody gives a damn what you say. As I said before, it is sickeningly arrogant and just plain asinine to think that you are so intellectually superior that you can override all of the science with your ignorant, misinformed comments.
2008-02-10 08:49:48
Yeah but anytime you inject politics into it you can't trust either side, look we cannot affect what has already been done, and we can't fix it with a tax (you know its coming) we can only change our actions now, but there is still no solid proof that we are affecting it NONE.
2008-02-10 05:30:47
I can calm all of you with this, mars is going through the same thing we are. There is also proof that the climate on venus is slowly changing as well. Now, we have proof that earth went through this in the past as well, so does this mean that cavemen and aliens have suv's? lets all just grow up and focus on something we can change.
2008-02-09 06:48:15
Same as above, you are drawing a false analogy. What qualifications do you have to say that we shouldn't worry about global climate change now? Are you a climatologist? Are you even a scientist?
2008-02-09 06:46:25
If "people" did, it wasn't scientists. You are drawing a false analogy. Source?

Thank you for posting this. There was a warming in the late 1800's they thought was the end of the world. There have been warming and cooling climatic changers over and over though out the life of earth. Now some will stop freakin' over the current situation and shut up.
2008-02-09 06:03:19
People thought the world was going to be unlivable in the 20th century even back during the 1800's due to climate change. It's silly to get all twisted up about it. Our energy/fuel policies are getting better these things just take time.
2008-02-09 03:40:58
Did anyone else notice that this was published in 1975? Even if it was accurate (which it isn't) it would be horribly outdated. So why anyone even considers this factual or accurate is beyond me.
2008-02-09 03:35:19
Read my first reply. That global cooling BS was just hype by the exact same kind of people who are now denying global warming. You OBVIOUSLY have no clue what peer-review is, it has absolutely nothing to do with the conclusions drawn by a study. You submit a study for peer-review and the peers examine the METHODS and analysis you did, not the conclusion you drew from them. If the ACTUAL science supported the GW denialists positions, they would be published. And sure, I'm sure if you keep repeating something enough, it will be true. Your side has no actual science because the VAST majority of global warming denialists don't know the first thing about science- as you have abundantly shown already. You're the self-righteous one, thinking you are so intellectually superior that you can override all of the science with your ignorant, misinformed comments.
2008-02-09 01:35:08
Straw man. Nobody EVER said global warming would mean that there would be absolutely no colder weather than usual anywhere on earth. Please, think before you post. Fact is that the earth has kept on warming, and no matter how many little towns you can name that experienced a little more cold than usual, when you look at the whole planet it turns out that it IS heating up. It is such astounding inanity that people think they can overturn thousands and thousands of scientists, the people who have devoted their lives to study these issues, and prove global warming wrong with just three sentences. It is sickeningly arrogant and just plain asinine.
2008-02-09 01:09:55
Global warming, sure, yep. That's why we had snow in Texas last Easter. Just keeps getting hotter.
2008-02-08 23:51:09
First, notice that this crap was published in newsweek. This is NOT a scientific journal. Scientists are NOT responsible for the BS the media publishes. Secondly, there was NEVER a scientific consensus (not even the beginnings of one) that the globe would cool. Third, the reason there was none was because of the peer-review method. It works. If you are trying to say that this somehow shows that global warming is a myth, you are clearly mistaken. In fact, if you look into what actually happened the global cooling stuff is EXACTLY analogous to what global warming deniers are doing. The super overwhelming consensus is that global warming is happening and we should do something about it. You can find that in actual scientific literature, not in the crap the media publishes. The amount of anti-global warming, peer-reviewed scientific literature there is out there (I've never really seen any, but I'm sure it's out there) is miniscule in comparison to the overwhelming amount of peer-reviewed, scientific literature that points to global warming being a fact. It is the global warming deniers who are doing EXACTLY what the global cooling people were doing back then. They're going directly against the consensus view, they are spreading misinformation about the issues, plus they completely skip the scientific process and go directly to the media. The media, who has an astoundingly little understanding of science and buys all the crap that the global warming denialists say.
