    God does have a sense of humor; another global warming protest gets cancelled by a snowstorm

    http://www.calgarysun.com/2013/11/16/anti-pipeline-protesters-gather-in-calgary-to-decry-climate-change

    Dozens of anti-pipeline and oil sands activists gathered Saturday in downtown Calgary as part of a nation-wide protest focusing on climate change.

    The peaceful gathering in Calgary, held inside the Plus—15 walkway between the headquarters of Enbridge and TransCanada Corp., was part of the Defend Our Climate protest that took place in 130 communities across Canada.

    The protest was held as world leaders in Poland for the United Nations Climate Change Conference discuss plans for international co-operation on the issue.

    Protestors in Calgary said the Harper government is refusing to take meaningful action when it comes to climate change.

    Chantal Chagnon with the Idle No More movement, said they’re trying to get the attention of the energy industry and the Canadian Parliament to the growing global opposition to “pipelines, tar sands expansions and other polices that contribute to runaway climate change.”

    We’re seeing the effects of global warming and we can’t keep denying it because obviously something is happening,” Chagnon said.

    Something is happening, all right. The Man Above is laughing at you. 

    Originally about 300 people were slated to participate in the Calgary protest, but due to a snow storm only about 50 showed up.

    Al Gore himself is amazing, he brings record blizzards with him everywhere he travels in his carbon-burning private jet....

    since the polar ice caps have been growing and all of their predictions have been wrong they've swithced from global "warming" to global "change"....it's like "you can keep your insurance and your doctor period!!" lies to push an agenda....Al Gore is laughing all the way to the bank....in his Suburban!!!!

    Can you tell god to check in with the ultra catholic philippines? Because his sense of humor is questionable.

    It's not provable. That's kind of the point.

    No matter how many graphs get created, no matter how many data sets get fudged or concealed, the sad fact is that given our current technology there is now way to definitively prove that AGW exists or measure the impact that human activity has on the world's climate.

    The argument over whether or not there is global warming or whether or not it is caused by humans is nothing but nice cover for the real problem - the ideological "solutions" proposed by leftists to "solve" the problem and save us all.

    It is time to stop arguing about the problem and start focusing on what politicians are doing to exploit the situation. 

    Are we really going to listen to the lefists that brought us the Obamcare disaster? Their "solutions" are nothing but another wealth redistribution scheme. The honest watermelons among them even admit it.

    Then disprove it.

     

    Am I supposed to be shaken by your attacking the source? Deniers already think 98% of scientists in the field are lying to enrich themselves. So who, other than Jeebus, will they believe as a trusted source?

    [/QUOTE]


    Even if we stipulate that global warming is happening, even though there is no evidence to support it, we are left with the dilema that you only talk about the ill effects while ignoring the postive effects. 

    * More land opened up for farming/longer growing seasons = more food for the poor.

    * Melting ice opens up shorter trade routes = less fuel/lower costs

    And so on.  The glass should be half full on this issue, but it is not.  Why?  My take is that progressisivm is an inherently negative and controlling political ideology, and has snared global warming as "proof" that their overall negativity and crazy-eyes control of the elites is the solution.

    Not "provable"? God is not provable. But that's religion. Do you know how science works?

     

    The underlying theories and our understanding of molecules like C02 is solid. While you can go back to 1970 and cherry pick one specific model that was proven wrong, the overall theory has been born out repeatedly by the evidence.

     

     

     

     

    The scientific method dictates that you keep testing your theory against evidence, most preferably if you can design experiments to test it, but you also accept it as true until disproven.

    Moreover, one does not rationally discredit an entire theory simply because a related phenomena is initially understood. So if we learn more about 'mitigation' cyles and how they related to warming, that doesn't mean what was said about warming is wrong. Simply that there was more to the picture.

    We didn't laugh off special relativity just because Einstein was initially wrong about quantum mechanics.

     

     

    [/QUOTE]

    Then, the science is settled.  there has been no global warming for the past fifteen years, hence, global warming, or those who claim it is happeneing, are wrong.

    The usual demagogic scare tactics....

    Even if Miami is going to be underwater in 2100 , (which we do not have the scientific level of knowledge to know that)  the "solution" progressives want to impose on  the US right now will demonstrably do nothing to prevent it. (The US only is 10% of the problem) Bears repeating:  it will do nothing to prevent it.

    But it will make progressives happy (and some  rich from taxpayer dollars) to know we "did something".

    Heartland Institute:

    U.S. carbon dioxide emissions declined by 3.7 percent in 2013, the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of East Anglia (UK) reports. The decline in U.S. emissions continues a dramatic drop in U.S. emissions this century, even as global emissions rapidly rise.

    The new Tyndall Centre report says there is enough data regarding 2013 carbon dioxide emissions to accurately project emissions for the final two months of the year and for 2013 as a whole. Global emissions will rise by 2.1 percent during 2013, powered mainly by a 5.9 percent increase in China and a 7.7 percent increase in India.

    The new emissions data confirm the success of free-market emissions reduction programs relative to government-centered restrictions. Environmental activists throughout the world routinely criticize the United States for being one of the few nations to never sign the Kyoto Protocol and pledge to meet its emissions quotas. Nevertheless, emissions data show the United States has reduced more carbon dioxide emissions this century than any other nation. The U.S. emissions decline is due in large part to technological advances in natural gas production and power plant operations.

    China and India both signed the Kyoto Protocol, yet carbon dioxide emissions continue to rise rapidly in those two nations and throughout the world.

    Thank you , evil greedy private sector oil and gas companies, your greed to make a buck has resulted in a "fracking" US energy revolution, making the US no longer reliant upon Middle Eatern oil, and  lessening carbon emissions.

    Thank you, global warming activists , for...um.....making Al Gore a billionaire...

    What solution is that?

    Who, specifically, is advocating it?

    Is nobody advocating anything but that solution?

    [/QUOTE]


    Again: Because I think you'll find that the claim that the only thing being demanded is cap & trade. In fact, there's a distinct minority of people advocating that because there are much more beneficial solutions that even may end up with us selling technology to people and profiting from curing the problem.

    The reason you focus on cap & trade, CLC, is because strawmen don't have brains. Just ask Dorothy.

    [/QUOTE]

    Straw man?

     The reason for the focus on cap and trade is that President Obama made it the focus of his 2013 State of the Union message...

     "In three words, though, it's cap-and-trade. Obama was referring to the Climate Stewardship Acts, a trio of Bush-era McCain-Lieberman bills that would have imposed limits on greenhouse gas emissions and allowed polluters to trade allowances and credits. That's more convoluted than a carbon tax, which Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer recently floated, and which would achieve similar ends.* But unless his reference to McCain was intended sheerly to embarrass his former rival, it seemed clear Obama was referring to cap-and-trade, perhaps because it does not have the word "tax" in its name."

    And even though you state climate sceince doesnt claim that individual weather events and storms are caused by carbon emissions, Obama had no such trepidation about demagoging ..."hitting on acts of God like Hurricane Sandy, droughts, and wildfires rather than name-checking the deity himself.."

    With every hectare that becomes arable, at least another 10 become desert or unsuitable for agriculture...mostly from human activity.
