That some of the biggest supporters of man made Global Warming are flying around in private jets to conferences to expel hot air about the subject makes me think it's more about them lording over us while they do what they want.

It is man made and your *insert expletive* if you think its not.

Stop buying into conservative propaganda. You dont need to stop using jets to counteract global warming, you simply need to wean off of fossil fuels.

Climate change has happened in the past... could mankind be speeding it up? Maybe. It would still happen either way, imo. But I'm just an internet scientist which means I pretend to know things.

As an earth science student, I can confirm that man made climate change is real.

Garbage in garbage out. A lot of the data points used to make the models you read about are not taken from an even amount of areas to get a true reading. Some are right next to heat vents on buildings.

Even the former Weather channel founder has his doubts about all the global warming true believers.

There's money to be gotten in grants to study this and come back with the results people want to hear. Not so much if you research comes back negative.

How does research with heat vents have to do with polar ice cap melting?

I swear some of ya'll need to stop spouting unscientific nonsense.

well with sattelites that gather the temperature of every square meter of the earth, every 90 minutes, modern data acquisition is miles above the issue you describe, and has been since the constellation was completed.

If you put a lot of sensors right next to a heat vents on a buildings in the cities of course your going to get data that suggests things are really heating up.

The ice caps are not all melting. Some spots are actually growing.

Besides, even with all their satellites and such we can barely get a 10 day prediction right but a 10 year or more one has to be taken as gospel truth?

There are decades worth of synthesis reports freely available for anyone to look at.

How do decades of reports match against thousands of years of history of the world cooling and heating up regardless of what man does?

Mankind does glug valuable resources like soda from a straw. We've become more conscious but we're still using enough…

it's a natural cycle, and honestly "global warming" is a misleading terminology, since it is a natural phenomenon that keeps everything alive.

humans contribute to "accelerated global warming", meaning the ice caps were not suppose to melt within this particular time period.


predicting rain, predicting hurricanes and predicting climate change are different to one another, you can't really compare them together even though they fall under the same subject known as meteorology. that's like comparing Christians to catholics... you can't.

Exactly. Meteorology is such complex stuff a lot of times they feel pretty good if they are 50% correct in their predictions.

So running around like chicken little saying CO2 is melting the ice caps when there are other bigger things(like the sun) that are contributing a lot more seems like bad science to me. Clear headed scientists are taking a wait and see approach. Politically and grant seeking ones are running around saying we got to do something NOW, NOW, NOW or we're doomed.
