    The reason global warming is a political farce

    The people that try to sell us the nonsense cant answer these three questions.

    1) What is the earths average temp supposed to be. Who gets to say?

    2) Explain why the earth was so MUCH warmer in the years 1000 to 1200? It was so warm that Vikings were farming southern Greenland.

    3) Who knows what the output of the sun will be tomorrow or any day. It is the primary over ridding input to what the earths temp will be.

    I might add it is all an attempt of the radical left one worlders to get control of the USs assets.

    The medeval warm period is not particularly much warmer than today. Maybe but not necessarily.

    The Roman and Late Bronze age, the Holocene Optimal, were much warmer than now though.

    I find the worse problem is their credibility.

    At least two seem to have believed.

    Nonsense.



    It doesn't take a genius to see this is a problem.

    Re: The reason global warming is a political farce

    I really don’t understand why the right wingers and flat earth sort still fool with this nonsense.

    The effects of global warming are manifesting themselves around the world now, and they’ve gone from theoretical “what ifs”, to concrete realities that are forcing us to adapt infrastructure to it already (at least in the countries that can afford it).

    Fortunately, technology is coming to the rescue, and costs have been driven down to the level that investors feel confident with.

    Renewable energy is the fastest growing segment of the electrical power market in most of the world. Certainly in Europe and the US, where renewables counted for 100% of market growth, AND covered the decline in high fixed cost large scale power plants whether fueled by coal or nuclear.

    Sorry, but go on ranting about global warming being a pocket protector conspiracy all you want.

    But the world has moved on.

    Sure. "Settled science" and all that.
