  • Mriana, Here’s an interesting read:

    “humans emit about 80 times more CO2 a year than every volcano on Earth combined.” Good point.

    Let’s be honest, this article is meant to scare people into thinking that CO2 will kill like the Asteroid did by putting large amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. Is that not correct?

    All this CO2 in the air cause t…[Read more]

  • And your the one accusing us of being Nazi.  MAGA man!

    If I used a picture of a pack of dogs. Would I have been accusing you of being a dog? That is what your scientific mind tells you?

  • I am not writing a book. In blogs, the use of informal styles is accepted. You will find that I do make a lot of grammar mistakes. The question is why did the CFI grammar checker not pick that up?

    AAMOF SMHID that grammar SB BD must have been FAAK.

  • Thanks CC. I miss that one and made a mistake. What happened was I opened a C to F converter on the web because I still live in the Fahrenheit world. I typed 6 in and got 42.8. I just went back and rechecked the and got 42.8 again. Upon further checking it turns out the converter adds 32 to the number so the real number should be 12.8. I did not…[Read more]

  • We don’t “think differently”, we have considered as much data as we can, although each of us is different to some degree in that, and used our powers of reason, and yes, we were brought up in an environment that valued the modern knowledge and respected science, but we also know how to question authority and make sure they are not hiding anyth…[Read more]

  • 3point, some scientists have claimed, and nobody has challenged them that it is possible because of the higher CO2 in the atmosphere that we may have extended the time before we head into the cold part of the cycle by 1K to 3K years. That is a good thing.

    Now you say that we don’t agree that for every degree warmer the beetles can expand. And t…[Read more]

  • Yea, it makes me feel like I am not invited to your click because you all think the same and I think…[Read more]

  • 3point. I agree with what you are saying. The point I am trying to get across is that it would be better to stay in the Intermediate Cycle forever and not go into the Ice Age.

    I miss my fly fishing trips to Red Fish Lake in Idaho. The pine beetles totally devastated the area. Along with the trout getting the swirling disease. I decided to let the…[Read more]

  • Mriana, have you never followed Climate Change before. The Climate Reality site is a political site.

    It starts off with the 97% of climate scientists agree that humans are the cause of Climate Change.

    Do you have any idea what that means?

    Climate Change is the man-made affects on weather. Therefore, humans are responsible for 100% of Climate…[Read more]

  • CC – the earth’s temperature between 25,000 and 100,000 years ago was about 6 oC.

    Milankovitch Cycles and the Climate of the Quaternary

    C to F = 42.8

  • Link one – President Reagan passed a mandate to respond to human-induced and natural processes of global change by creating a department to coordinate all the government agencies. The government agency failed and just made matters worse.

    Obama tried to fix the problem of the public not being able to separate Mother Nature from man-made changes t…[Read more]

  • Mriana, you talk about extreme weather. Maybe it is extreme weather to you when coming out of the intermediate part of a 100,000-year Climate Cycle. The intermediate part of the cycle is a period only lasting about 12,000 years. It is the calmest and most stable weather of the whole Climate Cycle. It is because of the stable weather that mankind…[Read more]

  • Mriana, Mankind does better in warm weather. That is a fact. Civilizations don’t advance in cold weather and that is a fact. Just check out the mini-Ice Age in Europe. In the Mid-West we got one hay crop per year. Every now and then we had a good year and got two crops. That was nice. In California here they are getting seven crops per year. All d…[Read more]

  • Mriana, the predictions are not real predictions. The earth is in the warming cycle right now. I can make a prediction that the earth is going to warm. Big deal. Unless I can tell you how much the anthropogenic affect will be, it is of no value.

    What do the experts say?

    If you are a re-insurance company and you are going to insure 20-year…[Read more]

  • If we don’t do some drastic changes by a certain date it will be to late. The Earth will be past the point of no return and there will be no saving earth.

    We have been passed the point of no return three times now and the date just gets changed. What was your favorite date-of-no-return?

  • TimB, is Climate Change bad or good? Remember, Mother Nature is going to put cities under water, not Climate Change. A lot of land will go under water. And that will be offset by the Antarctic and Greenland becoming livable. If a city is going to go under water is it not like it is going to happen overnight. It will take hundreds of years. The…[Read more]

  • Mriana, I was being sarcastic. Been following Climate Change for a long time now. None of the predictions were coming true. That cause the predictions to be moved to thirty years, then fifty years and 2100 seems to be the target today. By then the scientists making the predictions will be retired or dead.

    The obvious questions come to mind. Why…[Read more]

  • When averaged over all of the world’s oceans, absolute sea level has risen at an average rate of 0.06 inches per year from 1880 to 2013 (see Figure 1). Lausten, that is 133 years times 0.06 inches per year. And that comes to 7.98 inches. This is 0.665 inches behind the Mother Nature’s natural sea level rise. Which is understandable because these t…[Read more]

  • Write4u, of course the sea level is rising. It has been on the rise for almost 90,000 years. Then it will fall back down in 10,000 years. That is 800 feet of movement. 400 up and 400 down.

    Right now, we are in the intermediate part of the cycle and the hottest part of our ICE AGE weather. The earth is currently in an interglacial, and the last…[Read more]

  • I tried to post the pie charts. Didn’t work.

    Also, the trend of the 2100 sea level rise has been on a trend downward for years now. A decade ago, it was more than 20 feet.

    So, there is a lot of old data floating around.
