Started by Donald L. Engel. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on Tuesday. 19 Replies

"people's vunerability to science denial" is not a fair phrase to use with the subject of "man-made global warming".  Or as the climatologists like to say, "anthropogenic CO2" is responsible for…Continue

I'm  well aware of that Donald. Don't you consider arctic exploitation a danger to wildlife?

They aren't drilling in Seattle.  They are parking the rig there until the Arctic thaws a little more.

Here's another iconic image of Eaarth today:

Mexico City landscape, 20 million inhabitants

This seriously looks like a dystopic sci-fi landscape.

Welcome to the Anthropocene: iconic image.

Landscape full of trash in Bangladesh

It' so surreal, my first impression was that it was of art created to communicate the "meaning" of the Anthropocene.

It Was Warmer in Antarctica Than in New York City Last Week — and T...

By Meredith Hoffman, March 30, 2015

"Part of Antarctica hit a record high of 63.5 degrees Fahrenheit last Tuesday, the hottest ever reported, according to the climate monitor OGIMET.

"By comparison, Washington DC was 46 degrees, New York City reached 45 degrees, and the temperature in London topped 50 degrees.

"While scientists warn not to draw conclusions from a single weather event, the temperature record hues closely to more alarming, long-term trends in the southern continent.

"Antarctica's floating ice shelves have recently decreased by as much as 18 percent in some spots over the last 18 years, says a new study, published in the journal Science. As the oceans have warmed, they've spurred more of the frozen mass to become water, researcher Fernando Paolo told VICE News."

I didn't know this forum was here when I started a new one on the same subject.  I'll see if i can copy it and put it here where it belongs.  It has to do with denial of man-made (anthropogenic) CO2 being the cause of global warming. We are close to being at the end of a cyclic warming period that occurs about every 120 thousand years.  We still aren't as warm as the last four warming periods.  In fact, we aren't as warm as the Roman and Medieval warming periods.

I'll see if I can transfer the info here.
