Global Warming (AGW) proponents finally admit defeat? They now say modern warming is just a fraction of past natural warming
From c3 Headlines
Read here. The publication New Scientist has been at the forefront of global warming and climate change hysteria. After years of promoting climate model quackery and publicizing the ludicrous scare predictions from models, the editors must have mainlined truth serum as they publish actual empirical evidence. Or, maybe they’re getting tired of pushing fabricated alarmist B.S., eh?
You know, I’ve been wondering about this warm weather we’ve been having in Mn. And I thought I would try to preempt cries of global warming. I thought this weather was a little odd for MN, but I can recall having a few “brown” christmas’ back in the 70’s so it really is not unprecedented. The truth about what is going on right now is not about warming. It is about a lack of precipitation. If we had snow on the ground it would be much colder because of the albedo effect, and any warming that is happening right now is due to the fact that the snowless surface is absorbing energy, where a snow covered surface would be reflecting the energy back into space.
This actually puts the lie further to claims by the so called global warming “experts”. Do you recall that just a few months ago they said that it was going to be extreme weather events would be caused by global warming. Well? Where are the extreme weather events occuring? Not here. We have nothing but figurative crickets chirpin’!
What would we rather have, 40 inches of snow or 35 degree golf in December? It’s a non-factor! Have seen the same occurance over my long years. Trust me, it will snow and we will wish for this lull we now have to have continued..
I agree completely. I say let’s enjoy it while it lasts, because you know old man winter has plans. He just has not come around to us….. yet!
“What a marvelous cooperative arrangement — plants and animals each inhaling each other’s exhalations, a kind of planet-wide mutual mouth-to-stoma resuscitation, the entire elegant cycle powered by a star 150 million kilometers away.”
“Extinction is the rule. Survival is the exception.”
“The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence.”
The link above does not go directly to this story. This one does.
This is a funny read if you consider that they are using past warmings to try to scare people into thinking that we could induce one of these hyper warmings with CO2. I mean, how did these past hyper warmings occur without SUV’s, concrete manufacturing, coal burning, and domestic cattle farts?
Excessive volcanic activity.
Possibly. Or it could be solar activity. Our sun has many different cycles it goes through. There could be cycles that we are not aware of that play out over tens of thousands, or even millions of years. Who knows? My point is that these hyper warmings have occured before and Man had no hand in causing them.
Sure Neil, I get your point. But to argue against mine, while (sort of) agreeing with it, and knowing full well that the sciecne backs me up, seems a bit odd to me. Your secondary theory should be the one prefaced with a “possibly” shouldn’t it? I would hazard a guess that both things could account for it, and maybe even several other concurrent factors as well.
