    Re: NOAA: 2014 is shaping up as hottest year on record

    Ten years ago, NOAA predicted we would be plagued with massive numbers of hurricane landfalls. It's been over 3,000 days since the last hurricane landfall.

    So, we're supposed to blindly trust, "the science"?

    Right. And every single discipline is doing this while competing for funding.the funding goes to the most important projects.

    It's quite the merit based system....you know, the type that wingers who fawn over Capitalism seem to love?
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    And then, as if on cue, you devolve into the mud slinging. Just adding more proof to the mountain of evidence regarding the agenda, and it's supporters.

    Well done.

    Have a good day.

    Re: NOAA: 2014 is shaping up as hottest year on record

    I remember back in the 70's when all the climate scientists were all a twitter about the coming Ice Age. Here's a hint for you all: It never happened.

    Now all the climate scientists are all a twitter about global warming. . . . . . .

    Until the day that the climate change models actually predict a few things accurately, I'm not willing to put any money to making decisions based on them.

    Either the model isn't accurately representing the climate theories, and that's why their results are wrong, or the models are accurately representing the climate theories, but the theories are wrong, or even worse, the data being fed into the models is all wrong.

    Either way, where ever the error lies, the result is not something with which you can make impactful decisions. At least not yet. Make some accurate predictions with the models, then we can talk what decisions need to be made and how quickly. Until then, not so much.

    So, no science denial, but rather acceptance of science as a process, one that's not yet run it's course WRT global climate change. So no climate warming denial either (read my post again, it says nothing about denying that it might happen). But instead, cautious, fact based decision making.

    Where is this prediction?

    Sorry, wrong. Continental US:

    • Isaac, landfall 8/2012.
    • Irene in 2011
    • Dolly, Gustav and Ike in 2008
    • Sandy did not actually hit land, but was producing hurricane-force winds over land

    TCFAQ E23) What is the complete list of continental U.S. landfalling


    So, we're supposed to blindly trust, "the science"?
    You do understand that your claim here is highly irrational, yes?

    If I go to the bank and a single bank teller treats me rudely, it is not rational to conclude that "all bank tellers in the US are rude." That's not supported by the evidence.

    Your statement here seems to imply that unless NOAA is 100% accurate with one specific prediction, none of what they say can possibly be true (or mostly accurate).

    As to "blind faith," you're welcome to dig into the actual material yourself. Unfortunately, if you don't have the proper training, you won't understand it. How much time do you want to dedicate to re-checking work that other scientists are already re-checking?

    You're absolutely right for once.

    It never happened.

    There were a few stories in Newsweek, but it wasnt 'all the climate scientists' by any stretch.

    In fact, climate science already knew about the CO2 effect long before the 70s. It even made TV!



    Sixty years later, the theory has been pretty much proven, with temperatures well above those of the 50s.

    Oh, wait. I forgot. You dont know what you're talking about if it wasnt delivered on a plate from Newsmax. Nevermind.


    So you agree that the NOAA manipulated temperature data ?

    Good, your growing up.

    Re: NOAA: 2014 is shaping up as hottest year on record

    Uh huh... So again, where was the NOAA prediction?

    You did read the part of the article which pointed out that the Caribbean has gotten slammed several times since 2005, right?

    You do know that NOAA correctly predicted that this year would be at or below normal hurricane levels, right?

    You do know that predicting the specific path of a hurricane is extreme difficult, yes? As in, even 24 hours before a hurricane gets close to the US coast, it can veer off?

    And again, you do understand that even if NOAA was wrong about this specific thing, it is irrational to use that to reject every single finding and/or piece of data produced by NOAA over, say, a 10- or 20- or 40-year period, right...?
