Climate Concerns

The "CLIMATE CONCERNS" group is dedicated to discussion regarding the topic of the ever present and serious issue of changes to our climate due to the introduction into the atmosphere of human induced effects which prove harmful to the environment and which eventually may prove destructive to our planet.

Framing Climate Destabilization

The words we use and the images they evoke shape public comprehension of Catastrophic Climate Destabilization's immanence. Here are a few terms from the past few days. It's a tiny…Continue

The basic CO2 process is Chem. 101.  Everything Joan says is poised to happen, barring an unprecedented effort by humanity (ain't gonna happen).  I just don't get why people deny it.

Because human activity raises the amount if CO2 at faster rates than nature can absorb, causing greenhouse gases, causing glacial melt, causing warming and changes in the chemistry of the oceans, and creating flooding conditions on low-lying ground, causing disasters for shoreline occupants, and creating extinctions for many birds, mammals and fish that depend on present conditions.

The Earth will adjust and so can Homo sapiens, at great cost and suffering. There will be a mass of humans moving to higher ground and refugees needing shelter, food, and social services.

Since we are near the end of a cyclic warming period, and we still aren't as warm as the last four, why is it man's fault this time?

Just asking.

I have to admit, I'm enjoying the mild winter, riding m bike on Xmas day -- but longer-term, it's nothing to be hapoy about.

Alan, we're supposed to be entering an ice age but climate change has been pushing toward heat instead.

Comment by Alan Perlman on December 25, 2015 at 4:17pm

Are we going through a cyclic warming period, just as we had cold eras and Ice Ages?  And if the burning of fossil fuels is contributing to or even causing it, we're screwed, because the world will never agree on anything but the need to keep burning them (e.g. NASCAR).  Energy prices are down, as is the price of oil, so don't expect anything resembling conservation anytime soon.

"In 2015, researchers reported that snowpack in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California was at its lowest ever recorded level. But the official record only went back about 80 years".

"Trouet and her team found that this past year, the snowpack was the lowest it’s been in 500 years, not just since measurements began in the 1920s and ’30s."

Denise, welcome to this group of people concerned about the climate and what causes the events we currently experience in our weather. Individuals have different points of view and express them honestly and clearly in a civil way, with no name-calling or sewer language. You will be able to read many different opinions and glean evidence to help you make decisions that make the most sense to you. 

Comment by Donald L. Engel on August 26, 2015 at 11:49am

Welcome aboard, Denise!  I'm glad you used the word "consensus", because that is all they have going for them. There is no proof to back up their claim of "man-made" global warming.  It's all conjecture.
