Oh silly liberal, why do you think "we" either "need", "should", or "can" do anything to slow/stop it? The climate has been in a constant state of change from the time the earth was created. And that trend will continue long after the human race has exterminated itself. Humans are simply a gnat on the behind of Mother Nature, and all of the self-important, greedy, corrupt liberal minds put together will never be able to change that. Quite a bitter pill for a liberal to swallow, but you just can't change that fact.

Default That 420 initiative in the the room again! ;)

you will make it but it won't work

and... if we have 420 ppm and it has negligible effect on climate change compared to other factors, then the unproven theory and fear of CO2 increases as a significant climate driver remains unfounded.

The IPCC embraced GCM's have failed to predict the future climate and demanded revisions in every report release. The revisions have all been to reduce the theorized influence of CO2 as a climate driving factor.

Is correlation causation?

Excellent news! Keep that warming trend coming. The chicken littles will predict doom and gloom no matter what the numbers are.

It'd be terrible if the tectonic plates moved about and spewed hot lava around from time to time making mountains. Can we stop that with some taxes? Good thing no glaciers moved around and melted and created some big lakes in the mid west, whew.

The **** For Brains - who keep harping on and on and on and on about MMGW being "settled science" and how we should accept that, don't know the FIRST Rule of Science that Correlation does not equal Causation.

Exact numbers vary, but they all seem to come around to a CO2 concentration before the Industrial Revolution of about 275 ppm of CO2, so can we accept that for the purposes of this discussion? If so, and we take 415 ppm as today's concentration, that is an increase of 140 ppm, or about 50%. Good so far?

What this means is that before the Industrial Revolution, the atmosphere was about 0.0275% CO2, and it is now .0415% CO2. So, in the last 175 years or so, we have increased the concentration of CO2 in our atmosphere by about 1 and a half HUNDRETHS OF A PERCENT. We have increased it a little more than one part per TEN THOUSAND. Does this really seem like it could cause the destruction of the planet?

Just for fun, let's say for a minute that it is significant, and we should be alarmed. Does this mean we should "get right on" the CO2 problem? Yes?

Wait a minute, what about Methane? Depending on the basis, Methane is considered to be somewhere between 30 and 80 times MORE POWERFUL of a greenhouse gas than CO2. Good thing atmospheric Methane hasn't increased since the Industrial Revolution then, right? Wrong. Atmospheric Methane had a concentration of about 700 parts per billion before the Industrial Revolution to about 1900 ppb today, an increase of more than 250%!

So, let's say for a minute that I believe all this "science" on global warming. Why are we running around talking about completely destroying the US economy reducing CO2 emissions, (when most of the rest of the planet doesn't give a **** by the way) when the real problem indicated by "science" is Methane?
I'm laughing at how the "climate change" proponents have not responded at all to this or the Tim Ball analysis regarding the Milankovitch Effects. They just have no idea how to respond to facts and scientific observations.

I know exactly how to respond; you're retarded.

Your own copy and pasted crap states that ME cycles occur over 100k years. The warming that we've been observing has been happening orders of magnitude faster than milankovitch cycles can explain.

Once again, if you believe the issue is MAN MADE, you can do something about it yourself. Take one for the team.

If we still had relatively substantial wars the problem would indeed be greatly diminishable, as required.
Profound and yes that would take a real dent out of it!

Ummmm, I didn't post them, just referenced them. But thanks for presenting your lack of observational skills. The warming "climate change" folks claim has happened (although the data has gigantic problems) is not inconsistent with the beginning of a warming trend in the ME cycle.

Although the changes in the Earth's orbit are real, and anyone who is half decent at math can re-create the calculation in Newtonian physics pretty easily, even though I would need a little help from some excellent websites that are out there on Al Gore's internet, personally I'm not 100% on board with that being the sole driver of climate variations. To me, it's just another data point that shows that the problem is actually quite complex, and that those who have "knee jerked" to Carbon being the cause flippantly ignore the fact that there are many causes and forces at work.

You still didn't respond to what I posted about methane.

And your ad hominem response is noted. No man is more thoroughly beaten in a debate than the man who accuses his opponent of being retarded.

I have the answer!! No question climate change, MMGW or whatever exists. The solution? Send me all of your money and I will see to it to curtail it by 2090. I promise...
