Re: Climate-Change-Denier-Gate?

More data for Fyyr. It even discusses planetary orbit changes and the ice age cycles. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-17611404 CO2 'drove end to last ice age' A new, detailed record of past climate change provides compelling evidence that the last ice age was ended by a rise in tempera...

Re: Climate-Change-Denier-Gate?

The Sun does not warm the globe? The Sun does not vary its output of energy? The distance in the varying elliptical orbit of the globe, from the sun, which is not at the center if the ellipse, does not make the globe warmer and cooler? And the relative axis angle and rotation of the globe about tha...

Re: Climate-Change-Denier-Gate?

The globe, the Earth, warms and cools because of its relative distance and location to the Sun. The slow changes in Earth's eccentricity have very little effect on total solar radiation, and the effect it does have is to change the relative length of the seasons in each hemisphere. (In North Americ...

Re: Belief in Science: A partisan issue?

"Conservative" today means a fat, uneducated, bible-thumping, racist Christian fanatic in the South. That's not what it meant in 1982, or 1974, so it's little wonder that opinions among "conservatives" have changed over the years. If you look at the same people who called themselves "conservative" i...

You, perhaps?

I'm still waiting for your explanation for global warming.

I'll even go for a bare hypothesis at this point. Worry about the data and experiments later.

Re: Climate-Change-Denier-Gate?

"No, I said we've eliminated all of the other known reasons for climate change, such as changes in the Sun or in the Earth's orbit." You have removed the Sun from its effects on the Earth's climate? Read it again: We've eliminated changes in the orbit as a possibility. And yes, we can measure the E...

Re: Climate-Change-Denier-Gate?

So you're saying that we know all the reasons for climate change, and all of those variables have been eliminated? No, I said we've eliminated all of the other known reasons for climate change, such as changes in the Sun or in the Earth's orbit. We can't eliminate reasons we don't know about. If no...

Re: Climate-Change-Denier-Gate?

Or you can go to Yosemite right now, where a natural fire right outside the village was allowed to burn naturally. This is what forests would have looked more like, than what they look like today. Your aerial clear cutting photo if taken 500 years ago would look relatively reversed. Where the odd p...

Re: Climate-Change-Denier-Gate?

And because humans do not know all of the reasons(yet) why change occurs does not invalidate that premise that change is not human caused. When all of the known possibilities have been ruled out, then we adopt the only remaining explanation: human-influenced atmospheric changes. That doesn't mean t...

Re: Why is the media portraying him as a boy?

Because the guy who shot him has a really bad public relations team. The family of the "victim", on the other hand, got the media's attention immediately, and posted old family pictures to pretend that their son was just a little kid. The reality is, the guy probably didn't break the law, and the fa...
