You decide if +0.19 deg. C vs the 30 year average is catastrophic or even dangerous warming.
"However, by repeated attacks on skeptics through a complicit mainstream media, those with CCDS have led much of the public to believe skeptics deny all warming—or at least all human contribution to it.
In reality, most skeptics (both within academia and outside it), remembering the undeniable evidence about the existence of similar warm periods in recent climate history, question not whether the world is warming, or even whether human activity contributes to the warming, but how much, and in what relation to natural causes, and whether the proposed changes in global energy policies are worth the effort."
Global warming...it ain't all good. One of many examples:
This is true but one side tells only the bad stuff and tries to mis characterize the other side as being as extreme as they are in having the opposite position.
That's what the article above that I posted discusses.
Yes, there has been global warming
Yes, it has melted Arctic sea ice.
Yes, sea levels are increasing at around 1 inch/year.
Yes it has increased heat waves a bit in the hottest time of year
Yes, it can potentially cause stronger hurricanes
Yes, it has caused heavier rains
Yes, computer simulations of the future atmosphere project more warming
Yes, wildfire intensity has increase in some places
How does this make somebody like me a denier?
This is how:
By portraying my position/opinion of being one that does not recognize any of the realities above.
The link below shows more of what I believe in:
It's good to know what both sides actually believe in.
One side believes in catastrophic climate change, the other side believes in the same climate change too..................just not catastrophic climate change.
It would be like me an another meteorologist predicting rain amounts from a storm.
I am predicting 2 inches of rain. OK, maybe that might cause some problems if it falls all at once on your crop but since this planet is greatly deficient in CO2, it would be like 2 inches of rain on your corn in July after a long dry spell without enough rain.
Another meteorologist is forecasting widespread 6 inches of rain and claiming that the dry soils that need more rain, are actually too wet and have too much H2O already and that H2O is pollution.
If he/she was right, then that much additional rain would be very bad for your crops.
To make his/her case sound more compelling vs my case, they claim that my forecast is for NO rain and that rain of any amount , even excessive rains are never detremental.
