That imagery drove me to look further into the science and details/data of climate change than I intended.... all those years ago when I first joined TSG.
We had a lot of interesting conversations between us.
I think most of it has been verified over time.
A lot more detail known today.

The deniers back then were a lot more creative ( as in bizarre ), though :D
I remember still, a lot of Mike's zany logic and claims.

If it was snowing on the other side of the planet, how could climate change be warming? LOL!
Climate was the change in the weather.
Frustrating but so absurd, it was hilarious.....some of thoes claims. wow.
Yup i recall....I actually posted a response on my blog that expanded on a response to Mike here, and that column got picked up by some school mag somewhere in your neck of the woods.

The science cannot be denied. If someone says 2 and 2 equals Buick, it doesnt make it correct, just makes them ignorant.

"Climate Normals"



The new abnormal is warming up the US government’s new climate norms
https://www.ncei.noaa.gov/news/noaa-delivers-new-us-climate-normals

NOAA’s new U.S. Climate Normals give the public, weather forecasters, and businesses a standard way to compare today’s conditions to 30-year averages. Temperature and precipitation averages and statistics are calculated every decade so we can put today’s weather into proper context and make better climate-related decisions.

What a difference a decade makes. Even though 2/3 of the data in the new normals is present in the previous ones, the last decade's still been hot enough to drag the temperatures upwards.

Interesting.
Suggest a solution that is virtually impossible to accomplish.


From the House Caucus: 'Nutjobs Are Us' :rolleyes:
Rep. Gohmert asks whether federal agencies can fix climate change by altering orbit of the Earth and moon
https://news.yahoo.com/rep-gohmert-...ng-orbit-of-the-earth-and-moon-183152236.html

A quip from his past:

Long a climate change denier, Gohmert in 2015 mocked Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Al Gore over their advocacy to address global warming, saying that more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was a good thing because it meant “we’ll have more plants.”

That and BS Receptivity make interesting partners :rolleyes:

They're in Ohio, too.

I could say I don't know how or why they get elected, but I suspect it's society's reaction to things it doesn't know or understand. Rather than trying to learn and understand, distrust and emotionalism is a fallback position.
Why? Because it's easier. What is unknown becomes equated with evil.

In general, a lifespan is 70+ years.
A person born today is likely to see their environment as the normal, not recognizing or able to acknowledge changes during previous generations.
Repeat that concept over many generations and there will those that believe the environment today is the same as before the industrial revolution.
Result: today becomes the 'new' normal, just as it always has been :rolleyes:

Align religion and politics against change, and the mechanisms for correction become inefficient. To add support for their quest, and maintain their status, blame the inefficiencies on educators and scientists for they must be the villains for all the 'bad' going on. :rolleyes:

Oh happy day lol.

1.Never but there are believers.
2.Lunacy and politics seem to be connected like partners.
One side denies, the other exaggerates. Agreement becomes impossible.
