    In your opinion, was The Year Without A Summer a climate event or a weather event?
    You see the difference is that he did not present this hypothesis as factual and completely indisputable, while you did with your "no icecaps until 15 million years ago" claim.

    Re: Is Global Warming a myth?

    I think there is global warming.

    I think man has a small impact on it.

    I think this impact came from centuries and centuries of mans actions.

    I don't think a few decades of "fixing" things is going to make any real difference.

    I don't believe the extremely large lengths we would theoritically need to go, the amount of economic damage we'll do, and the amount of damage we'll do to our freedoms, is worth the minisucle likely impact it would have in the large scope of things.

    This does not mean I don't believe that individuals should strive when possible to, in more general ways, help keep our environment cleaner and safer or that its BAD to do such. More simply that we should not be legislating it, especially in the more extreme ways as have been proposed or suggested.

    I do not believe that "warming" is necessarily "catastrophic" or even "bad", but simply potentially a change.

    I do think the major movement pushing Global Warmin is rooted at least 50% in political theory for many of the most ardent supporters of the movement, as it provides a potential reason to push political ideology they would have had regardless of global warming or not.

    I do think that completely denying its there, or acting so ridiculous partisan and hysterical to it the OPPOSITE direction that people degrade or insult the notion of actually attempting to conserve, to recycle, to choose INDIVIDUALLY to opt for cleaner energy or better fuel effeciency simply for fear that if you acknowledge those things are okay that you're somehow agreeing with the more extreme ends of it.

    Re: Is Global Warming a myth?

    Also, whenever ANYTHING weather related happens, if you immedietely start going "GLOBAL WARMING" it doesn't convince people you're right, it just makes you look stupid.

    "We didn't get a lot of snow, its global warming!"

    "We got a lot of snow, its global warming!"

    "Its a really hot summer, its global warming!"

    "Its a cool summer, its global warming!"

    "Its was a heavy hurricane season, its global warming!"

    "It was a light hurricane season, its global warming!"

    "Its a normal temperature season after two really cool ones, its global warming!"

    Seriously, just stop...please, stop.

    I think you and I agree on a lot. Except for the whole tea-party thing.

    In all fairness, recently it has been much more heavily stacked towards "global warming is bull**** because it is snowing", but this does go on for both sides of the argument, and both are equally idiotic. Perhaps it is seasonal, and in 4 or 5 months the ratio of "weather events prove my case" will tilt back in favor of the "its global warming!!" camp.

    It does happen on both sides, my issue is just slightly more with the global warming folks.

    I've never heard the "no global warming" folks going "There's a hurricane, its not global warming" or "its unseasonbly hot, its not global warming" as if those things are proof.

    Yet I hear that from the GW crowd. It seems like ANYTHING that is weather related, somehow, someway, is proof global warming exists. No snow? that's proof. Lots of snow? That's proof. Hot temperatures? That's proof. Cold temperatures? That's proof. Heavy bad weather times? That's proof. Really light bad weather times? That's not proof. Normal weather or average temperatures....that's just an anomaly

    I am just glad they keep making new suns to replace the ones that get destroyed, but I fear any night that when the sun goes away there will not be a new one the next day

    I forget, 2 or three years ago, the NWS stated that it was likely to be a very bad hurricane year due to warmer waters. Halfway through the hurricane season, no hurricanes, and of course, some anti-GW types used that as evidence that climate people are clueless. Needless to say, the lat half of that year was really bad for hurricanes.

    People on both sides use the whole "it's hot/cold right now" to prove their point, and it's stupid either way. It does need to be pointed out for both, not just the side you like least.
