Not a source to be found on that site, of course, and many things are obviously incorrect.CLIMATE CHANGE
One opinion: https://blog.heartland.org/2017/01/...evidence-humans-arent-destroying-the-climate/
The earth doesn't do that for the lols.Models predict that Earth will warm between 2 and 6 degrees Celsius in the next century. When global warming has happened at various times in the past two million years, it has taken the planet about 5,000 years to warm 5 degrees. The predicted rate of warming for the next century is at least 20 times faster. This rate of change is extremely unusual.
Volcano have been putting CO2 in our atmosphere forever. That hasn't changed. And history actually suggests, if they were erupting more, we would be COOLING because of sulfur dioxide, water, and ash..." It is quite timely as relatively recent, but intentionally ignored, evidence has emerged that volcanic contribution to atmospheric CO2 has been enormously under-estimated.We should care about global warming and global cooling, no matter the cause. But that does not mean we should make draconian changes in global economic, political and energy policies based upon the unproven hypothesis that human emissions of CO2 are leading to apocalyptic global warming.

Discovery of Massive Volcanic CO2 Emissions Puts Damper on Global Warming Theory "
Then again the EXPERTS did a U.S. Geological Survey that says this. "The world’s volcanoes, both on land and undersea, generate about 200 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually, while our automotive and industrial activities cause some 24 billion tons of CO2 emissions every year worldwide. Despite the arguments to the contrary, the facts speak for themselves: Greenhouse gas emissions from volcanoes comprise less than one percent of those generated by today’s human endeavors." https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/earthtalks-volcanoes-or-humans/
Heres the detailed fact check;Volcano have been putting CO2 in our atmosphere forever. That hasn't changed. And history actually suggests, if they were erupting more, we would be COOLING because of sulfur dioxide, water, and ash...
Also, your link has no sources, like you posted, and it is psudoscience according to
WHICH SPECIFICALLY STATES THIS ARTICLE AS A FAILED FACT CHECK.
Why would they be lying? Why would they cover this up?! Big oil would never let that happen!
Is big lithium in on it? Or are the scientists all just wrong, and sites with no sources and multiple failed fact checks are all right?
I dont see your point in regards to the USGS? They are saying volcanos ARENT causing climate change?
Lake Meed is drying up because of 100 year old water rights mismanagementThe question is not about does or is the climate changing. Answer is yeah it does and probably is.
Those observations you’ve listed probably are correct observations. Although lake mead probably has more to do with increased withdraws for growing urban centers.
Even if they are correct they in no way point to climate change do predominantly to human actions.
We had the mid-evil warming that helped with the renaissance growth.
Then there was the cooling in mid to late 1700’s that prevented the successful importation of grapes and wine industry in the New world because it was too cold.
We had the cooling 20000 years ago that dropped the interior temps of the continents up to 16 degrees.
Remember Duggerland parts of the submerged English Channel were home to a thriving human population. It was a lot colder then and Europe and NA was covered in ice. But humans soldiered on.
Earths climate is always changing.
It was a new ice age in the 70’s then
It was the coastal regions were going to be flooded by 2010.
It’s an old story with new characters.
That humans are polluting and killing the earth.
“The Gods are angry with us and we must make a sacrifice to appease them.”
Why is it always powerful people on high telling the little people we have transgressed, we have sinned, we must change. And that first we will make a sacrifice to the gods and hope they divert their wrath from us.
Well take it up with China and India.
Maybe we need a good unchecked pandemic to thin the herd. So many problems would be solved.
Who would we have to blame then? maybe the Fates.
Yeah we’ve progressed so far and are so rationalistic and logical today.
It is not agreed upon in the scientific community. There is a public narrative that it is agreed upon. But there are many in the scientific community that don’t agree.agreed upon by the scientific community that humans have caused global warming at a more rapid pace than anytime in human history.
Thank you for the reputable source.It is not agreed upon in the scientific community. There is a public narrative that it is agreed upon. But there are many in the scientific community that don’t agree.
You can not like that, you can disagree with it but it does not make it an agreed upon scientific fact.
The Earth is an evolving dynamic system. Current changes in climate, sea level and ice are within variability. Atmospheric CO2 is the lowest for 500 million years. Climate has always been driven by the Sun, the Earth’s orbit and plate tectonics and the oceans, atmosphere and life respond. Humans have made their mark on the planet, thrived in warm times and struggled in cool times. The hypothesis tha humans can actually change climate is unsupported by evidence from geology, archaeology, history and astronomy. The hypothesis is rejected. A new ignorance fills the yawning spiritual gap in Western society. Climate change politics is religious fundamentalism masquerading as science. Its triumph is computer models unrelated to observations in nature. There has been no critical due diligence of the science of climate change, dogma dominates, sceptics are pilloried and 17th Century thinking promotes prophets of doom, guilt and penance. When plate tectonics ceases and the world runs out of new rocks, there will be a tipping point and irreversible climate change. Don’t wait up.
i never stated that. The climate will recover, but we can't just keep pumping CO2 into the atmosphere and think we aren't just pulling the rubber band back.Do humans effect the environment sure, can they effect it to the point the climate will be irreversibly challenged and human life will be put at risk? I think not.
You know this statement in and of itself might be true.Please, explain to me, what exactly is the reason they would be lying to us about it? Because its agreed upon by the scientific community that humans have caused global warming at a more rapid pace than anytime in human history.
Well which is it it won’t be the end of the world and it will balance out, or we can’t keep pumping out CO2? You do remember co2 is a vitally important gas necessary for the existence of all life on earth except anerobic bacteria.i never stated that. The climate will recover, but we can't just keep pumping CO2 into the atmosphere and think we aren't just pulling the rubber band back.
Humans are cockroaches, and the planet has been hotter, and it made certain areas less habitable than others.
Mass extinctions have already begun (millennia ago), but they are a product of all human activity not just climate change, that one is hard to gauge.You know this statement in and of itself might be true.
But it is an incomplete statement regarding climate change and its impacts.
So humans have cause a fractional warming over the course or of 140 years.
Does that statement in and of itself actually say or imply the climate has or will be so altered that there will be mass extinctions or that coastal areas will be flooded.
It doesn’t It’s an emotionally charged statement that implies humans have done something cosmically wrong and that it will so alter life on earth we won’t recognize it in a 100 years.
Pollution of any form should be fought against full stop end of story.
But has co2 emissions brought or will in the near term bring humans to their knees. I don’t believe it will. And when I see the vast sums of money and regulations thrown at greenhouse emissions and cow farts I become suspect.
There is a push’s to limit the amount of beef cattle because methane from cow shit is going to contribute to the end of the modern world. Well how much methane do they think 30 million 2000 lb American Buffalo added to the environmental? There is just no common sense to the argument.
Fracking is bad but the natural gas derived over the last 20 year due to fracking exploration is responsible for the continued improvement of North American air quality.
"Well which is it it won’t be the end of the world and it will balance out, or we can’t keep pumping out CO2?" that's not contradictory.Well which is it it won’t be the end of the world and it will balance out, or we can’t keep pumping out CO2? You do remember co2 is a vitally important gas necessary for the existence of all life on earth except anerobic bacteria.
I to am all for reducing air pollution a d pollution in general. And the United States in the last 30-40 years has done a great job at improving air quality here. Why don’t we look at making those improvements were the worst of the problem exist. You won’t find it in the Western Hemisphere though.
I’m not however for taxing economical viable energy sources out of business to help a still non proven renewable energy sources. And by non-proven I mean their ability to produce enough energy to scale for a modern industrialize society.
Keep adding and encouraging renewables, but not at the expense of driving proven energy sources out of business.
