Thread's a ****ing mess.
Arctic warming has become so dramatic that the North Pole may melt this summer (2008), report scientists studying the effects of climate change in the field. "We're actually projecting this year that the North Pole may be free of ice for the first time [in history]," David Barber, of the University of Manitoba, told National Geographic News aboard the C.C.G.S.

Climate Scientist: 73 UN Climate Models Wrong, No Global Warming in 17 Years | CNS Newstemperatures collected in five official databases confirm that there has been no statistically significant global warming for the past 17 years, according to Dr. John Christy, professor of atmospheric science and director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH).
1988 Rob Reiss asked official Climate Scientist Dr. James Hansen how the greenhouse effect was likely to affect the neighborhood below Hansen’s office in NYC in the next 20 years, whereupon Climate scientist James Hansen issues this prediction, to be fullfilled in 20 years, which is to say, doom by 2008: “The West Side Highway [which runs along the Hudson River] will be under water.Michael Oppenheimer, 1990, The Environmental Defense Fund: “By 1995, the greenhouse effect would be desolating the heartlands of North America and Eurasia with horrific drought, causing crop failures and food riots…”(By 1996)June 11, 1986, Dr. James Hansen of the Goddard Space Institute (NASA) in testimony to Congress (according to the Milwaukee Journal): “Hansen predicted global temperatures should be nearly 2 degrees higher in 20 years, ‘which is about the warmest the earth has been in the last 100,000 years.’” (prediction for 2006)Sept 19, 1989, St. Louis Post-Dispatch: “New York will probably be like Florida 15 years from now.”June 8, 1972, Christian Science Monitor: “Arctic specialist Bernt Balchen says a general warming trend over the North Pole is melting the polar ice cap and may produce an ice-free Arctic Ocean by the year 2000.”It is now pretty clearly agreed that the CO2 content [in the atmosphere] will rise 25% by 2000. This could increase the average temperature near the earth’s surface by 7 degrees Fahrenheit. This in turn could raise the level of the sea by 10 feet. Goodbye New York.

[QUOTE=Missed AB;1063248090]Scientists are NOT always right!!!!
Of course scientists aren't infallible. Who is? The idea of the studies was to show that there is an issue and that humanity may be one of its catalysts. Not to mention we have never experienced something like this before with the advent of logci and technology. This truly is a first in human history, and mistakes are bound to happen. That's why nothing is a certainty, but the goal of the scientists is to present the possibility, which in this case is a negative.\\[B]Former NASA scientist Dr. Roy Spencer says that climate models used by government agencies to create policies “have failed miserably.” Report: 95 percent of global warming models are wrong | The Daily Caller

"scientists aren't always right"
Science is a systematic search for truth through hypothesis, observation, theory-crafting, and conluding, the truth is hard to determine, and as such we experiences failures.

If you believe what you write, than do something about. When the people who write these reports start living the way they imply, and state I need to live, to "save the planet", then I'll believe them. Until then, it's all just PR.
The science like a near 100% correlation to sun spots vs global temperature?
The science of diminishing returns? CO2 is an atmospheric blanket, not an exothermic reaction in the atmosphere. It does not create heat it only keeps it in. that no matter how many blankets I put on me, I won't go on fire, and with each blanket I retain less heat as a percentage than the one prior... It's the heat source that is the problem not the blankets.
Also I hate deep fried chips and am disgusted by all soda, our house isn't being air conditioned because we decided on not having central air (we have an actual ac unit but its in storage because we do not need it), I can't change anything about China being great at making my shoes (and my Ipad) cheaply, and a car is a necessity for me to get places far away (my private school isn't even in my city).
Your dodging of everything is idiotic. I believe we may be catalyzing something we shouldn't be catalyzing, and as such I have said so. If I provide logic and facts as to why I believe should be sufficient to believe in what I believe or at least respect my opinion and still disagree. For you to disagree however because of a lack of what you think is action then that makes you a fool.
People live by the bible, yet we do not stone others for being Gay, religious or not.
If you continue to be unreasonable then be gone from this thread, science has no use for unreasonable people who refuse to accept logic, observation, and according to our world, fact.
