What drives climate change?

  • You have only produced a link; are you saying that all URLs are leftist conspiracies?

    "If only there were some [ace.mu.nu]...natural mechanism by which to explain variations in global temperature. It would have to be massive, though. On the scale of our own Sun."

    My personal favorite angle is that, after years of ManBearPiggery, the term has been reduced to "Climate Change". How are you going to gainsay that? Who would contend that climate is constant, and seasons do not exist? I stand in awe of the rhetorical genius on display. Anyone disagreeing with "Climate Change" is clearly engaging in a "homophobic rant", no?

    • "If only there were some...natural mechanism by which to explain variations in global temperature. It would have to be massive, though. On the scale of our own Sun."

      Did you pay even the slightest bit of attention to what I linked to? They have evaluated actual data and found that the variations in temperature are beyond what we have seen from the sun. They have looked at one thousand years of climate data and found that the past 100 have been well outside the variance that could be attributed to the sun.

      You appear to be confusing climate with weather here. That might be part of your problem.

      Perhaps if they said that homosexuals were "all full of climate change".

        In the immortal words of Instapundit [pjmedia.com]: "I'll believe it's a crisis when the people telling me it's a crisis start acting like it's a crisis."
        Until then, as with so much of your output, it's just another wall the bulls hit.

      Welp, there ya go... Wilson... The man rules from the grave

      • Tell me this: ObamaCare; was it ever not going to fail? I guess the naïve hope was that the Information Age was going to be the end of scams.
        But here's a litmus test for you: anybody that wants to impart wisdom does it via appeal to intellect, not fear & guilt.
        • 'ObamaCare' is bullshit, a continuation of ancient themes, obvious since the very beginning. And your tea party wackos did an excellent job of discrediting all the opposition. Hired provocateurs, it looks like to me. ...anybody that wants to impart wisdom does it via appeal to intellect, not fear & guilt.

          Yes, they don't blame dead people from the past, or other things that don't even exist, for the events of today. But fear and guilt are what prop up your systems of protection for the privileged few. Ce

          The last time that what became the Health Insurance Industry Bailout Act of 2010 had any chance of reforming health care for the better or even not generally sucking was when there was still going to be a single payer option in it. President Lawnchair torpedoed that himself by striking it out and caving to the demands of the Heritage Foundation. The then shot himself in the foot again afterwards by encouraging the conservative bill to go forward so that he could place something on his presidential record

          • It's been made inevitable now. The left-handed news is that the mind-numbing idiocy on display is such that the notion of the government being directly involved with the market, instead of merely undertaking minimal regulator functions, has been (hopefully) discredited.
            These days, we have a government telling use we're entitled to everything, modulo the basic life, liberty & pursuit of happiness. Because these must be "managed", you understand. Because "fairness".
            We could regain consciousness after al
    • My personal favorite angle is that, after years of ManBearPiggery, the term has been reduced to "Climate Change".

      "Global warming" and "climate change" refer to related but distinct phenomena, and climatologists have always used both terms with precise meanings. Here [skepticalscience.com] is a concise explanation. As a rule, it's a good idea to pay attention to the way scientists talk about things instead of the distorted version that gets filtered through the popular press.

      • The level of Orwellian hooey associated with this topic is such that I can't hold back the laughter. See also my replies up-thread.
        • Using precise terms to describe specific concepts is "Orwellian"? Riiight. Someone in this conversation is practicing the "black is white, war is peace, freedom is slavery" mentality, but I'm pretty sure it's not me.

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.
