mesovortex: I was linking to a valid source of news and science journal articles in the 1970's touting "ice age" climate predictions that didn`t come true.

The NASA chart shows that "Global Warming" isn`t happening to any significant degree. At the rate that chart shows, it would take over 300 years for the temperature to get to +2.0 C. That is far far longer than all of the model predictions.

Besides that, a lot of things can and will change within 300 years. Our own country isn`t even 300 years old yet and back then we were burning firewood for fuel.

I believe in the next 50 years we will have thorium fuel reactors and advanced fuel cells, but we will always have scaremongers trying to whip up a frenzy using spurious scientific claims.

"All it is saying is ONE scientist says a model was a little off."

It`s saying that many scientists know that nearly ALL the models were massively off. 99.97% percentile off,

@5Cats:
So? That doesn't mean the consensus is wrong, or that the scientist is wrong, or that there isn`t global warming, or that man isn`t warming the planet.

All it is saying is ONE scientist says a model was a little off.

*facepalm*

@richanddead:
"You can say emissions are the proof positive cause but as I have stated in earlier posts, that Earth atmosphere is far to vast to be chemically changed to an unnatural state in less than 2 hundred years."

That's bull and you know it. We can measure how the atmosphere was 200 years ago. We can measure how it was today. It is different. We know why and we can measure why - thanks to radio isotopes of the carbon in the atmosphere.

We have changed it. The depletion of the Ozone Layer is proof.

@richanddead:
You don't get it. Nature can and does adapt if the changes are slow and gradual. However, right now, they are not slow and gradual. They are rapid. When climate changes rapidly in the past it caused mass extinctions.

Why would you willingly want to go through one?
