Ice withdrawal 'shatters record'
Arctic sea ice shrank to the smallest area on record this year, US scientists have confirmed.
it's amazing but there are still people ( non-scientists) that refuse to believe that man is responsible for some of the dramatic changes we are seeing in our present climate.
i typed in "global warming is a myth" into google and found this site as the 3rd entry:
...."I am not saying that it isn’t a good idea to take action to help the environment, but I ask you to consider this: if the majority of scientific data points to the fact that global warming is caused by the Sun, then how will a tax on carbon emissions help to stop it? How does us driving cars cause climate change on Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Neptune and Triton?"...
...It seems worrisome that politicians are all too eager to grab onto this man-made myth of global warming in order to make us afraid and guilty. Guilty enough to want to change it, and afraid enough to give up our freedoms and undergo massive financial expenses in order to do so. So this lie, being pushed by big money and big governments, is a convenient lie for those who want to exert control and collect money. However, it’s inconvenient for the mass amount of people who are already experiencing the problems of a widening wage-gap and fading middle class.
...If the problems we are being presented are based on lies, then how do we expect to find any true solution to helping the environment?...
right at the very end of the piece, we find out that the author is a 19-year old political student...in other words, he's not even studying a science degree! he's not even qualified to offer an opinion about a science issue!
i'm an amateur astronomer and familiar with the astronomical community and also the sun, how it works and how it will die. nobody is talking about the sun being responsible for global warming! are you reading about it anywhere in the science literature? i subscribe to a respected astronomy magazine and they sure aren't.
climate change on pluto? we know hardly anything about pluto! where are these so-called scientists getting their data from, the clangers?
better if they had mentioned nasa's new horizons pluto project, don't you think? http://pluto.jhuapl.edu/overview/whyGo.html
in science, they have a saying, outrageous claims requires outrageous evidence.
looking at the ice withdrawal image, i'd say the polar bears don't need convincing...
i leave the best nonsense i came across 'till last:
i found this gem on:
"What's more, 100 million years ago, there was six times as much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as there is now, yet the temperature then was marginally cooler than it is today. Many scientists have concluded that carbon dioxide doesn't even affect climate."
i wonder why they don't tell us who they are...
