Top Ten Reasons Climate Change is a Hoax

TopTenAlGore2

By Elmer Beauregard

The Senate voted this week on whether Climate Change is real or a hoax, I think it’s a hoax and here’s why.

I’m sure you’ve heard in the news that 2014 was supposed to be the hottest year ever. If it actually was “hottest year ever” you’d think all the terrible calamities that are supposed to happen would be happening now but instead the opposite is happening.

1. Record Ice

In 2014 there was record sea ice in Antarctica  in fact a global warming expedition got stuck in it. Arctic sea ice has also made a nice comeback in 2014. The Great lakes had record ice Lake Superior only had 3 ice free months in 2014. You’d think that in the hottest year ever that ice would be melting like Al Gore said.

2. Record Snow

2014 saw record snowfall in many areas, remember when they said that global warming would cause snow to disappear and children won’t know what snow is.

3. Record Cold

In 2014 we saw all kinds of cold records remember the Polar Vortex? You’d think that we’d be breaking all kinds of heat records in “the hottest year ever”

4. Oceans Are Rising Much Less Than Predicted

Al Gore predicted that oceans would rise 20 feet by 2100, it looks like were on track for about a foot. 80% of the tide gauges show less rise than the official “global average”. Many tide gauges show no rise in sea level, and almost none show any acceleration over the past 20 years.

5. Polar Bears Are Thriving

You’d think that Polar Bears would really be in trouble in 2014 “the hottest year ever” but they are thriving.

6. Moose Are Making A Comeback

A few years ago the moose population in Minnesota dropped rapidly and they immediately blamed global warming, then they did a study and found out it was actually wolves that were killing the moose. Wolves have been taken off the endangered species list and are now endangering other species so they opened a wolf hunting season in Minnesota and the moose are coming back. It turns out it had nothing to do with global warming in fact the years when the moose population declined were some very cold ones.

7. 99% of Scientists don’t believe in Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming

You’ve probably heard over and over that 99% of scientist believe in global warming well the opposite is true. That talking point came from a study where only 75 scientists said they believe in global warming on the other hand over 31,000 scientists have signed a petition saying they don’t believe in Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming.

8. Nature produces much more CO2 than man

In 2014 NASA finally launched a satellite that measures CO2 levels around the globe. They assumed that most of the CO2 would be coming from the industrialized northern hemisphere but much to their surprise it was coming from the rainforests in South America, Africa and China.

9. It Isn’t Actually the Warmest Year.

If you look at the satellite data 2014 was not the warmest year ever in fact there has been no global warming for over 18 years. The Reason they can say it’s the warmest year is because they are using the ground weather station data which is heavily influenced by the Urban Heat Island effect, many of which are near pavement. Even still they had to cherry pick that data to get at the warmest year ever and it is only the warmest by only two-100ths of a degree within a dataset that has a variability of a half of a degree. The fact they they had to ignore accurate data and fudge sketchy data to push their agenda proves (IMHO) that climate change is a hoax.

10. The Hypocrisy of the Main Players

One of the main reasons you can tell that global warming is a hoax is that the main purveyors of global warming live lifestyles opposite of what they preach, they all own multiple large homes and yachts and they fly around the world in private jets pushing their propaganda. Not to mention some people such as Al Gore actually profit from Carbon Taxes and other green energy laws. If they actually believed what they preached they would be leading quite different lives.

  • Hair of Goat

    Anyone who agrees with this article is a stupid fucking cunt. Go move to a different fucking planet so you can fuck that up you piece of dumb shit.

    • Dave

      Wow Hairy, you OK?

  • edjweaver

    You global warming enthusiasts just ignore the facts that are put forth above. And forget scien-bleeping-tists. Ninety-nine percent of the world’s climatologists, those who make their living studying climate, not the forecast for the next few days — climate — those with doctorate’s in that field — do not believe man is causing global warming and there has been no warming for 18 years and that the warming there was for 8-10 years prior was so minimal it did not come close to warranting all the time that each of us could find something better to do than responding to it herein. Wake up!

  • edjweaver

    NASA scientists. Yeah. Roy Spencer used to run NASA’s climate unit. He is now at the University of Alabama-Huntsville and is STILL the western hemisphere’s top climatologist and he has outlined clearly the myth of man-caused global warming. It takes courage to accept the truth that goes against what you’ve always “believed” and it appears many of you lack such courage.

  • TrumpHater

    Global warming is hoax? Hah! Shell oil probably paid you to tell this kind of shit

  • raind

    I guess these scientists found otherwise: http://www.pnas.org/cgi/doi/10.1073/pnas.1517056113

  • jacob baumberger

    Can we all agree that global warming is being caused by extra-terrestrial life forms and is not greatly influenced by mankind.

  • Martyr

    Can anyone give me a logical explanation of why people do not believe in global warming? I feel like those people take these issues and just pleasure themselves in creating controversies and further complicating solving the problem. It’s pretty obvious that the earth is warming up.

    • Dave

      Hi M,

      Mostly because its not that simple and its not settled as fact, not even close. Read and learn and take some time for this. You need to answer your own questions. A lot of other answers, on this site for instance, are for entertainment or rants.

      Start with this: 75-95% of the global warming effect is caused by clouds. Co2 is just sliver fraction of the total, and then the discussion about man’s role is just another small fraction of that.

      You will want to ask why this is a topic at all and try to figure that out; money, politics, etc. But don’t go there. Thats the ranting and conspiracy theories.

      But get the facts n a row and you can get your belief started from a clear position. You may well then want a logical explanation why people are believing in this non issue. And then start to see the human and world loss over al the energy and good peoples valuable attention being wasted, instead of feeding and helping the many in (real) needs.

      • Martyr

        Thanks Dave. This really helped. I do agree that many of the posts regarding the opposing view on climate change, on this website in particular, are made for entertainment.

        Are you sure about the clouds causing the warming effect? If this is true, us humans should try ourselves to limit the amount of CO2 put into the air, even if it is just a small fraction of the cause.

        Also, the logic behind these theories is that the Earth goes through warming and cooling cycles, and this is a part of the cycle, but it is better to be safe than sorry.

        • Dave

          You should be able to double check me easily on the clouds/greenhouse. To weed through the articles, they don’t classify clouds as a gas. So search Largest Greenhouse Contributor, not largest green house gasses contributor. Then you will see it from other sources as well.

          Thanks, and we are going to be alright, believe me! Contribute as you can, but Co2 is not pollution. Its plant food. Hate DDT and monoxides and bad pollutions will actually help the world.

        • Dave

          Water vapor accounts for the largest percentage of the greenhouse effect, between 36% and 66% for clear sky conditions and between 66% and 85% when including clouds.

          Look for articles that want to talk about greenhouse contributors, and not just the gases, which should only be a sub category, compared to water vapor. Thx D

          • Princess Peach

            Wow, that’s a real eye opener. But we still have the issue of the weather getting warmer. Even if the problem isn’t caused by humans, the problem is still present, whether we like it or not.

          • Dave

            HI Peach! You know how I look at it. I think it is a solar system thing. And I wonder what control we can actually have over this scale of an issue. The sun!

            Greenland was green 6-800 years ago, and all the Vikings died off as it froze to what it is today. We live in systems bigger than us, bigger than we can fathom and something that will always be changing. Change is awful for humans, and we hate it. We want security.

            And there is more. We have a tendency to blame ourselves. The human race has a complex! At the same time we tend to think we can influence huge things, we once were the center of the universe, our sins caused the plague and we flagellate ourselves, etc. We have a little Napoleon in us all! Sounds ridiculous now, I know! But 500 years ago it felt like today to them.

            So I am in for whatever we can do. Ill do my part. But understanding our inherent frailty needs to be explored as well. Imagine if all this energy was directed on feeding everyone for a day.

            Read some history. See how this is all about a minuet percentage of a non pollutant, within a scale of galactic proportion of which we are just beginning to measure, much less understand. We don’t know. And when we don’t know, we fill it in for fear of the unknown, and repeat history.

            Ok, Thx D

          • Dylan Gerard

            Peach, please don’t listen to this guy, or anyone on this site for that matter who thinks climate change isn’t real and human induced.

            Dave is using the typical climate change denialist theories such as
            1. It’s caused by clouds
            -clouds do make up a large percentage of greenhouse gas but CO2 adds to the positive feedback loop.

            2. Greenland used to be green (lol)
            It wasn’t that green, in fact Vikings named it Greenland so people would go their and not to their real home “Iceland” which was named that to keep foreigners out.

            If you have an email I would like to send you a site that has a scientific response to all these classic denialist theories.

          • Princess Peach

            So, are you claiming that global warming is happening?

          • Dylan Gerard

            Climate change is real. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a conspiracy theorist or has no education in environmental science.
            I think the real issue isn’t the climate, however, it’s our dependence on fossil fuels from unstable places of the country. We need to invest in renewable energy to get out of the Middle East.

          • Princess Peach

            I completely agree with you. I always thought it was real, but after seeing how messed up politics are these days, I didn’t know what to believe (even if it was blatantly obvious). The government has been involved, which is why I also got confused on what I believed.

          • Dylan Gerard

            I know how you feel, but this isn’t a political matter, it’s a science. Glad I could save one soul on this hell of a website! And candidates such as trump and Cruz say that it doesn’t exist but that’s to promote their political agenda…

          • Princess Peach

            Yeah, I guess my brain got tangled up. But, I totally agree that it isn’t political, and it DEFINITELY is happening.

  • Heather Paladini

    This article is a joke to read, based on lack of proper punctuation and grammatical errors alone. It is hard to believe a literate person with any understanding of anything actually wrote this, much less someone with a background in climate science (or any science for that matter). I can’t believe people buy these crazy claims and contorted ‘facts’ used to support the climate-change deniers’ conspiracy theories. I wish people would try to actually learn, objectively, something about science before jumping to these crazy conspiracy theories and denying science and fact.

  • disqus_lkVjMrnsGt

    I’ve noticed for years that the official low temperature for practically every locale I’ve ever looked at on Accuweather, is several degrees higher than the actual low that registered in real time. I’ve seen this in my own town, over and over again. I’m not sure if there is some legit reason for this, but if not, and this type of fudging is used by global warming advocates, then it’s no wonder we have supposed rising temperatures.

  • bsroon

    i just point out that the Vikings were FARMING GREENLAND from about 800 AD to a hair over 1200 AD. It had to be a whole lot warmer to do that – and yet we have polar bears, seals and walrus…..

    I point out that Pinatubo – 20 yrs ago blew more CO2 into the atmosphere than all humanity – EVER – and we’ve had 18 yrs of …………….not warmer. Hmmm. How can MASSIVE amounts of naturally produced CO2 cause NO global warming, but your smallest car fart raises the oceans?

    i try to keep it simple for the simple, the “politically correct” because if you have to throw in POLITICS to make it SOUND correct – it isn’t correct.

  • C D Xbow

    Hey ElmerB, you are dead wrong about everything. Sea levels are rising faster than ever, surface temperatures are higher than ever, and that survey of 31,000 scientists included dead people, dentists, geologists, computer programmers, entire families and barely a single climate scientist.

  • JMS

    They just need to stop trying to make “man made” global warming happen. It is only working on a few idiots, but those who have half a brain knows that it is the arrogance of man that thinks that we have that kind of power. Man cannot control the climate, the weather, or global warming. Global warming is going to happen no matter how much you drive your car, no matter how much electricity you use, no matter how much coal you burn to heat your home. Just ask a Woolly Mammoth.

  • Jeff Vojtko

    Doesn’t this just say it all? The worthless politicians pushing this fraud are now pushing AGs to attak and fleece large companies. “global warming” is no more than a made up reason to fleece Americans. It really is sad.

  • Thomas Kavanaugh

    The earth’s CO2 levels have reached in all time high during 2015 at 400 ppm. This explains why the earth continues to get hotter and hotter year after year. Humans continue to emit large amounts of CO2 and other greenhouse gases, which act as a blanket in the atmosphere. This means that the sun’s heat is trapped which warms the earth. This unnatural increase in temperature can cause drastic consequences.

  • mclovin stephano

    Omg there are is so much information in these reasons that are being ignored. There was record ice for one year because of the extreme weather brought (fucktons of precipitation) by large amounts of evaporation caused by GLOBAL WARMING! Same thing answers record snow as well as record cold. No idea what your source is for no rise in the ocean seeing as the largest oceans have had a doubled acceleration of risen elevations within the last decade. I’ll admit polar bears and moose are thriving, obviously the belief that they are going extinct is a way of advertising and getting people’s attention on global warming. Yes, 31,000 scientists signed a petition against man-made global warming out of 300,000 (and that’s just in the US), but the opinions of the other 269,000 probably don’t matter. Yes, most CO2 emissions come from natural sources, but the problem is that we make extra CO2 that adds to it so much that it cannot contribute to the carbon cycle and it builds up in our atmosphere. I can’t stand your redundancy because how could there be a record for warm temperatures when you already said there were record colds, which can be explained by global warming. And I will give you the last one because I too hate nothing more than the hypocrisy of hardcore liberals.

    Climate Change is REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is real because the Arctic is warming. NASA said that the world raised 1.4 degrees fahrenheit. So there fore CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • TinyNarwhal LOLZ

    In 20-30 years, many global disasters will occur due to global climate change. Some include massive flooding of states and countries, droughts all over, major temperature changes (hot areas become colder and cold areas become warmer), and animal and plant life dying to the point of extinction. It is estimated that by the time these extreme weather disasters start to occur, there will be over 300 million people with no homes. Which means 300 million refugees pressuring the borders of countries to let them in. if no extreme measures are taken to change our lives, then we will all suffer the consequences. It is true when you say that these people who “support the idea of climate change are slacking. But that is only because small numbers of humans are not capable of changing their entire lives due to the pressure of some people in the world who don’t support this. The truth is, if humanity doesn’t get together and open their minds and their eyes to the truth, then the end of the world is inevitable. Even if you don’t believe in Global Climate Change, it doesn’t hurt to run tests to see the truth. When we are constantly pumping chemicals into the atmosphere, we are creating chemical reactions. These chemical reactions come from thousands of different chemicals being released into the atmosphere. What happens after a chemical reaction? A new atom/element is formed. Which means that it is very possible that new and dangerous elements can be created from thousands of different chemicals coming together. This would mean that new and unexpected disasters can occur, and that many other horrible possibilities might happen. I am going to switch to the topic of new, clean, and renewable energy sources. It is good in many ways to pursue research in this area. some good things include efficient and powerful energy flow and usage, but also making the energy we use safe to the environment. It is true that many, if not all, governments around the world are taking this problem to their advantage, but it is only because they are ignorant of the truth like so many other people. A reason why many people disagree with Global Climate Change and the end of the world is because they don’t want to believe it. They don’t want to walk around every day anticipating the end of live because people don’t like knowing negative truths, facts and consequences. They would rather be happy during the now and not plan on being happy in the future. This is true because even now, I as I type this, I am not wanting to believe this to be true because I don’t want it to be true. This is a small amount on what I feel about the world and humans and I hope anyone who reads this will understand my reasoning or at least the, despise it but start to think about it more. Thanks

  • Arran

    Wow I tottally agree here!

  • Kenji

    Those are all reasons that you are clinically insane!

  • Brandy Gebhardt

    I want to address the topics of “Record Snow” and “Record Cold” in 2014. I agree yes there were weather anomalies in the year 2014 which resulted in lower than normal temperatures. However, I do not agree that this information is enough to debunk anthropological climate change. My first argument is this: there is a difference between climate and weather. Weather is measured on a short term scale and fluctuates greatly where as climate is measured on a long term scale beginning at a minimum of 30 years time. It is easy to look at one year and say that all the information circulating regarding climate change is false. But when you look at the global mean the over all temperature is increasing globally at a much, much faster rate than in the past. The phrase global warming in itself is often misunderstood to mean “hot everywhere” this too is false, global warming as a result of increased CO2 in the atmosphere can cause just the opposite in locations. Areas can become uncharacteristically cold instead of warm as a result of changes in wind and weather patterns influenced by temperature increases in both the atmosphere and oceans.

  • Heather White

    Numbers 1-3, all have to do with weather, not climate. These are two very separate concepts. Weather is short term trends, where climate is long term trends. For example, January this year was colder than January last year. This is weather. If we want to look at climate change we have to broaden the range to 30, 40, 50+ years, go even further back then that and you’ll start to see that he climate is changing and temperatures are increasing per the graph found on this link: http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/current/annual/aus/2014/20150106_global_Tmean_plot.png

  • caughtinthemiddle

    Let me take apart each of your points.
    1) The average temperature of the Earth does not mean that specific areas of the earth do not exhibit sways in their temperature. If you take the average for the past 100 years there is a trend that overall, the Earth is warming an alarming rate. In fact, the warming trend has caused drastic weather patterns to occur, and in some areas that means record cold or snowfalls. The idea that the average means that every part is always getting warmer and that we experience constant warmth is quite ignorant.
    2) and 3) See 1)
    4) Just because Al Gore might`ve been off doesn`t mean the whole idea is wrong.
    5) Who is the author or sponsor of that site?
    6) The moose- just because the cause of the death was wrongly attributed doesn’t mean their isn’t global warming.
    7) Look at your wording….catastrophic man made…..doesn’t mean they do not believe global warming isn’t happening. Also, I would love to have all those “signatures” checked out.
    8) Murderers kill people so logically it wouldn’t matter if I killed people too, because I’m only one person compared to all the murderers. Inane.
    9) No, temperature is taken from many places across the world. The fact is that we continuously are breaking the record for the warmest year, or coming close to it.
    10) Hypocrisy aside, it doesn’t make something not true because the people telling you not to do it are doing it to.

  • Chris D

    This is pretty good.

    They are just hunting grant nuggets and that warm golden feeling of smug.

    It’s nice to know the democrats and libs think just like every other oppressive government in the rest of the world.

    Having established it’s a hoax, however, we should be moving on to nuclear power and electric cars at this point anyway. The big question in my mind is: why are they standing in the way?

    And I think the answer is obvious: they like the CO2 emissions. Even if global warming is real, the liberal elites don’t care–they know that they’ll have a path to more power regardless of whether the warming actually pans out. In fact, they are probably hoping for catastrophic warming…

    Better to wish for cooling though, because warming will cause only prosperity and health as millions and millions of acres of arable land open up…and the arable land right now has higher yields…and all the extra water will slip into the atmosphere and into lakes and reservoirs on land.

    They will only look like fools.

  • kstech

    Its seems like the establishment is doubling down with more GW propaganda starting about a month ago, I mean nearly every day the brainwashing continues. Was there some new study?, seriously they are full steam ahead as of lately again.

  • Trey Anderson

    Im an taking a global warming course right now at the University of Nevada Las Vegas and we have discussed a lot of the opposite to these claims. For one polar bears are not thriving and all and have been endangered for a few years now due to global warming. They are one of the main animals around the world that are closest to going extinct because of global warming. It was hard to take the 10 reasons to be true after that claim on polar bears. Furthermore, regarding 2014 being recorded the hottest year ever it was a hotel year but 2015 showed average temaptures rising as well. With the 2015 increase in tempatures it shows global warmings effect. For example, 2015 was 0.29 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than 2014 warmer than 2014, which was the largest jump between years ever. It’s hard to believe people try to prove global warming is not real when the facts are all over the place. Global warming is real and not a hoax sorry.

  • ☃ Naomi Lewis ☃

    The “99% of scientists don’t believe in Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming” statistic is completely false. In fact, the exact opposite is true – 97% of climate scientists believe that mankind is heavily influencing climate change.

    “The Hypocrisy of the Main Players” – do you know what these people do on a day to day basis? Do you know exactly how they live their lives and what they do (or do not do) to reduce their carbon emissions? I thought not. How can you make such a ridiculous generalized statement if you do not know exactly how these people are living their lives?

    “It Isn’t Actually the Warmest Year.” Your argument about the Urban Heat Island Effect is just… false. In fact, “Numerous studies into the effect of urban heat island effect and microsite influences find they have negligible effect on long-term trends, particularly when averaged over large regions.”

    To put it simply, this entire website is trash and you do not have scientific backing. The person that wrote this article probably works for a gas company and are probably concerned with protecting their own interests.

  • Stephanie

    While ice did hold a record high from 2012 to 2014, there has still been a sharp decline in past decades. Decreases in Arctic sea ice are still surpassing the increases in Arctic sea ice. Global warming is causing these fluctuations, 2014 its record high and then 2015 its back to its average levels. When it comes to the Arctic, it doesn’t take much additional ice extent to cause a new record high since sea circles the continent and covers a large area. The fact, that in 2014, there was a record high in ice is because of global warming.

  • Cheyanne

    I will just touch on a few of the items listed here.

    I will begin with #1. Record Ice.
    It may be true that Antartica is gaining sea ice, but satellites have been closely monitoring Antarctic ice and in face Antartica is losing land ice at an extremely quick pace. Sea ice is not as thick as land ice. Land ice is detrimental to many of the animals that live on that ice, such as polar bears. Losing land ice is a huge problem, both to use and to other organisms.

    I am also going to touch on #9 It Actually Isn’t the warmest year.
    Over many years, our planet has continued to gain more heat. There continues to be an exchange of heat between land, ocean and atmosphere which causes a warming to the global temperature. Temperatures are not only measured with ground weather stations near the pavement, but also measured using satellites which can give an even more accurate temperature reading.There is a continual ongoing warming happening in our world. Currently, the 20th century has become the warmest in the last 1000 years and will continue to warm.

  • Schumacher

    Decent argument, convincing even, but no less ignorant than expected.

  • jfreed27

    All these claims have been debunked. They rely on cherry picking, ad hominem arguments, or actual falsehoods. Deniers/delayers such as the author are complicit in the climate change deaths of hundreds of thousands/year, 88% of them children *(WHO). Those who do this for profit are beneath contempt. Their naive followers are simply to be pitied.

  • Master of Disaster

    NO.
    There may be more sea ice, but it is around for a lot less time. The ice freezes later and thaws earlier. This is a bigger problem than less sea ice, because it gives a shorter window of time for polar animals to fish, migrate, mate, etc.
    Also, just because it is colder for a while does not disprove global warming. It only shows it’s been cooler for a while, and does’n show that temperatures won’t rise again. And where I live we’re breaking all kinds of heat records!!!
    Also, nature produces a lot of CO2, but we are still producing a WHOLE LOT of it.
    And there’s a lot of CO2 production in the southern hemisphere because of all the animal life – and logging, farming, and burning forests.
    Also, how does someone being a hypocrite prove that global warming isn’t real?

  • James Guthrie

    This is the biggest scam in history, and the communist know most people are just ignorant of science, and don’t want anyone too know they are ignorant. They learned this by the other great world scam religion. The only reason they want to regulate CO2 AKA plant food, is because it will kill profits, and cause the US to be a communist shit hole, much like Europe is now. Now if you want proof, just ask yourself why they never mention the only (REAL) pollution from a modern coal power plant (FLY ASH) which stays on the ground. Well they don’t want to get rid of the coal plants. They just want them to lose money, and destroy the greatest nation in the history of the Planet. So vote for TRUMP.

    Of course, you probably knew that, as most global warming doubters are so very well informed.
    Actually, most of the doubters I know are as informed as my cats. Well, my cats are smarted on the subject. When I ask them for their opinions, being ignorant about the subject, they don’t say anything, whereas doubters start spouting complete, non nonsensical drivel.

    This article is why people want to publicize global warming and convince everyone it is not a hoax. Global warming is not happening based on these things that you are counterargumenting with, but it is happening because of carbon emmissions and burning of fossil fuels. Just because we say that Polar bears will go extinct or the sea levels will rise does not mean that they will happen right away! There are always fluctuations in data! If you were throwing a paper plane to see how far it will fly, it will be impossible for the data to remain the same number. Ice caps in antartica are melting faster than ever before! Sea levels have risen 8 inches as of 1880! GLOBAL WARMING IS NOT A HOAX AND IS A VERY URGENT PROBLEM THAT WE NEED TO ADRESS IMMEDIATLEY!

    CO2 IS NOT PRODUCED BY PLANTS. PLANTS CONSUME CO2 AND EMMIT OXYGEN THIS PAPER IS BS

    • SLENDY

      THIS GUY IS MAKING UP CRAP

      • Lol

        plants do produce co2 lol

    This link makes a lot of sense to me and the sources have recent data as well. I do believe that the “global warming” scare was financially based and more political than scientific. I also believe that human activity has an impact on the atmosphere but not enough to be considered a crisis.

    have you been to the Philippines or other countries aside from USA that was severely devastated by typhoon? this article is so misleading and moronic. And Assuming that Global Warming is just a hoax, would it be wrong to lessen the toxic wastes exhumed by those factories?

  • Lol

    Maybe its time for another mass extinction. One thing for sure it wont be global warming it will be from shear stupidity like the people who believe in global warming.

    “it’s all a hoax! what if we make a better, less pollutant, more sustainable world for nothing? how dare society trick us this way!”

    Okay, to be honest, this report is rubbish. Just as an example, you’ve compared a study to which the link doesn’t even work to a survey made in the 1990s – which we know was a stall period for climate change caused by the high specific heat capacity of the world’s oceans (for those who don’t study physics, that means the oceans absorbed a lot of the heat for that period and the energy was used to loosen molecular bonds in the water rather than obviously do much else). That “climate stall” did have effects, though – the now higher ocean temperatures resulted in huge storms across the world. It’s likely that Hurricane Katrina was a direct result.

    CO2 coming from rainforests – do you know why? It’s a direct result, not of the rainforests themselves, but of the deforestation happening within them. Rainforests in their natural state are carbon negative, as anyone who’s taken a single middle school science class would know – what’s releasing carbon is the burning of trees to make way for farmlands and industry.

    As for “record snow in many areas” – by which you mean Europe and North America – anyone who’s studied the effects of the Great Atlantic Gyre would be able to tell you that the effects of sea ice in the North Atlantic melting as it is now would influence Atlantic Ocean currents – which are responsible for bringing both warm air and rain to Europe and North America. If, say, Greenland had a massive melting event (whoops here’s a recent study: http://nsidc.org/greenland-today/), this would be enough to essentially trigger both a huge desertification event in Europe, and, in many models, a minor, location-specific temporary Ice Age (what do you think caused the London Frost Fairs? This has happened before.)

    As I’m writing this in my Sydney home, I have one more thing to add; I’m looking out my window at a frangipani tree. Frangipanis only bloom here in December, which is our hottest month. We’re now a week out from winter and in the last few days it’s become covered in flower buds. It thinks it’s mid-summer.

    LITERALLY EVERYTHING IN THIS ARTICLE IS COMPLETELY MADE UP! ELMER B. IS A FUCKING LIAR! THERE WAS NEVER ANY “RECORD ICE”, AND YES, 2014 ACTUALLY WAS THE HOTTEST YEAR ON RECORD! WE HAVE A MOUNTAIN OF DATA THAT SHOWS THIS. ALSO, OVER 97% OF SCIENTIST INSIST THAT CLIMATE CHANGE IS A FACT. WE HAVE THERMOMETERS, SATELLITES, WEATHER STATIONS, AND PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD THAT CAN EASILY PROVE THAT THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF THE EARTH IS STEADILY INCREASING AND THAT THE NORMAL HOT/COLD CYCLE OF OUR PLANET IS BEING SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECTED BY HUMAN CAUSED EMISSIONS! I ASK THAT EVERYONE MAKING COMMENTS HERE ACTUALLY RESEARCH THE CLAIMS THAT ARE MADE IN THIS ARTICLE. LOOK TO SEE IF THERE ARE ANY SCHOLARLY ARTICLES THAT SUPPORT THIS.

    If deniers are wrong we end up with an unprecedented catastrophic disaster. If climate
    change scientists are wrong we end up spending a lot of money on reducing pollution. Given these choices the latter seams much more appealing and the argument that we will destroy ourselves by trying to stop destroying ourselves is beyond ridiculous.

    Here in Dildo newfoundland, canada, situated in the north atlantic ocean, I was able to wear a pair of shorts one day this year,may 22. This week MAY 24,35,26 AND TODAY 27th, I’ve had to go back to winter pants, boots and parka. If this is global warming you can stick it up your ass.
