Global warming

We watched “An Inconvenient Truth” tonight. Highly recommended for every human being on this planet. If you haven’t watched it and its update as found on the DVD release yet, find a way to do so — even if that might mean that you will have to pirate it.

The theory about peak oil is flawed, as it forgets to take into account the fact that as crude prices go up, it suddenly becomes cost-effective to pump from certain fields. See the following article.

Is that the scaremongering movie? It’s interesting to note that C02 is responsible in only 20% for climate change. Mostly it’s… sun’s activity. We can’t do anything to prevent the climate from changing, as nothing about it was ever static or stable. There were times just a few thousand years ago that were much hotter on average than today, there were also times when it was much colder. We don’t contribute to the changes in any significant way. It’s interesting to see how much propaganda forces these sill ideas upon people that we are responsible for something like global warming. Blame the Sun for climate change and blame all the scientists that want money for research so badly to validate their existence.

>Blame the Sun for climate change

If you say that a lot of times, you might actually believe it. The sun’s activity has not changed over the years much, at least this much scientists agree. Also, if you saw the movie you would see the difference between popular media “scientists” and actual scientific papers. This is explained.

Even more importantly, we need to be aware of the energy crisis on our hands. If it becomes a reality – some say it has already beguin, it will hit society harder and sooner than global warming.

“The man [Gore] is an embarrassment to US science and its many fine practitioners, a lot of whom know (but feel unable to state publicly) that his propaganda crusade is mostly based on junk science.”

See here among many other links. Sure, I admire Gore’s attempt to make a difference, but I believe he is doing it only for himself.

I don’t think that’s true, I think that he is pretty genuine.

Do your own bit of research Eugenia, don’t base your knowledge on a movie with an agenda.

I’ve studied many papers about this topic and talked to professors at the technical university of GdaÅ„sk and they all agree. Over 60% is Sun’s activity. 20% CO2. When asked about scientists who say otherwise, they respond: “Well, they say things to achieve whatever effect on people they want to achieve, think for yourself, we have the knowledge and we don’t have big corporations or whole governments standing behind us with a bat, go figure”.

I agree with Tomasz and Jeff……NOT!!! There is a vast array of scientific evidence to validate anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions as the cause of our recent planetary warming (How about 16,000 of the worlds leading climatologists, meteorologists, palentologists, geologists, etc – which form the IPCC). The suns output is actually on a down-trend right now…so that is NOT the cause. Yes the earth has been hotter in the past…and cooler in the past. This has NOTHING to do with our situation now…as those well documented cycles do not confirm the natural variability theory as an explanation for the warming today. In order to speak of climate change, you actually have to possess some knowledge on the topic. I’m reminded of a saying I once heard. “Help me! – I’m surrounded by dumb people, and the worst part is…they don’t know they’re dumb!!” Denial and ignorance will get us nowhere.
