For those of you who are scientifically uneducated the term “global warming” is misleading. They were not on a “global warming” mission, they were on a CLIMATE CHANGE mission. Earth’s atmosphere is warming, and one of the results of this is WEATHER EXTREMES. This means droughts AND floods, and this means freezing cold temperatures and boiling hot temperatures.
Consider this: If “global warming” is not real, and we listen to the liberals, everyone would be conserving energy and driving a Prius, but if we listen to the conspiracy theorists who don’t bother to do some actual research from a valid source and “global warming” turns out to be an actual thing (hint hint: it already is), we’ll be destroying the planet.
Don’t talk about climate change until you know what it means. Before you reply, please do some research so you won’t sound ridiculous.
I love the bravado that humans have, to think they can accurately predict the climate and weather with records spanning a few hundred years at best.
This whole notion is religious fanaticism. Weather is too hot, global warming. Weather is too cold, global warming.
The truth is, we do not fully understand all the concepts involved with how nature deals with the climate and it’s changes.
I call this comedic irony, when a vessel filled with scientists studying the effects of global warming gets stuck in more ice than they could have ever predicted. Sorry, but that is some truly funny shit. [/quote]
How do you suggest we go about trying to understand climate without actually gathering information and studying it? Just to keep the conspiracy theorists happy[/quote]
He obviously is not that bright since he confused global warming with climate change and, he doesn’t realize we have ways of knowing what the weather was like thousands of years ago. I mean, how do we know there was something called an Ice Age? [/quote]
The planet is Billions of years old, which makes even thousands of years of data a moot suggestion.
The term “Climate Change” came after “Global Warming” when the data did not support the original theory. Give the bullshit argument a new name, so long as it keeps funding coming.
You have no idea, nor does anyone else, about how or why the Earth’s environment changes. Is it due to human activity ? No one knows, but I’m sure plenty of people on the East Coast wouldn’t mind a little Global Warming right about now. [/quote]
Speak for yourself. Just because you don’t understand it doesn’t mean everyone else is just as misinformed.
