    Anyone who makes their plans for the future based only on mankind's limited knowledge of what may or may not happen is likely to be surprised by what actually happens.

    Or Yes or No. But I've already bought 50 acres of land in Alaska, in the hope of Global Warming.

    Medicament, which offer liberals tribute to prevent Global Warming, extremely painful and ineffective. There is no "green" technology that can replace traditional. Electric cars do not drive themselves. For what would it move, need electricity to charge the battery. Electricity is produced by burning gas. Windmills and solar panels more expensive than electricity, which they can develop for all the time they work. Hybrid Cars, a dead-end branch of development. Too expensive to manufacture and repair.

    How about when Greenland and the Antarctic stop melting, the ocean level will inundate some shoreline. Like Miami, for instance.

    I think you have mis-writen that, but assuming that you mean that Greenland and Antarctic ice caps will melt then;-

    There is no peer reviewed paper suggesting that any sea level increase will be more than the IPCC's worst case scenario which is, in my view nothing to worry about.

    Do you have anything which suggests that the IPCC has underestimated the danger?

    the Vikings settled in Greenland in around 985. There are burials under the walls of this church from earlier phases of use but older churches have not been identified at this site. The Hvalsey church is mentioned in several late medieval documents as one of the 10-14 parish churches in the Eastern Settlement. The church was still in use in 1408
    .
    Greenland was warm, people lived and nobody heard about glaciers ...

    Did you check to see how far above sea level Miami is?

    Re: What is your view on climate change?

    What an odd polll with odd wording.

    Its pretty clear that wholesale climate change is part and parcel of the history and geologic changes on this planet.

    And its also pretty clear that the current climate is changing very rapidly in comparison to what we seem to have seen in the past and this is due to precisely the effects of digging up gigatons of carbon which has been sequestered in the earth since the carboniferous age and releasing it back into the atmophere. The carbon was sequestered over millions of years, and we are releasing it in the timespan of decades.

    Of course, we dont think in geologic times, so we dont differentiate climate change that usualy takes place over thousands of years with the change that is taking place over dozens of years.
    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.
