  •  Don't be scared (0+ / 0-)

    For every chart that shows temps rising, you can find one that shows them falling.

    My take - they can't tell me what the weather is going to be like next week - so I don't get too worried when they tell me what it's going to be like in 80 years.

    Just don't pollute, be eco friendly and we'll all be fine.

    •  you clearly don't understand (10+ / 0-)

      anything about science, or long term forecasting vs short term weather. Try again.  And by the way, can you point to even ONE graph (let alone the many you indicate) by actual scientists predicting global temp declines over the next 100 years?

      Please stop with the right wing denier talking point about since you can't predict localized weather more than 72 hours in advance you can't predict global long term patterns. That is called "demogoguery" - defined as the willful misleading of those who do not understand.  It is BS and you know it.  If you don't you really should look into it before you post crap like this.

        Lets see, it only took you a few sentences to insult me and then tell me I'm pushing RW talking points....I didn't say GW was not a problem but the diarist said they are scared....I said don't be becasue these predictions are just that.

        Here's a big F-O to you for being so rude.

        •  you still have not indicated (5+ / 0-)

          that you understand the questions I raised.  You don't understand projections and statistics from your responses. What is the basis of saying that just because something is a projection or prediction (no matter how well founded) that we have nothing to worry about?  If GW is a problem we only know about  the magnitude of the problem from scientific projections and models.  If you discount them you discount the science.

          And one more thing - you claimed that you can deny long term projections because we can't predict tomorrow's weather. That is ludicrous.  It is a false comparison.  It enables right wing deniers.

          Finally, I asked you to produce even one graph from a scientist that projects cooling over the next 100 years.  You said that they exist in equal numbers to those like the ones in the diary.

          polite to someone who is so hopelessly clueless as you appear to be.  Congrats to bluegrass50 for telling it like it is.

        •  Sorry dude (0+ / 0-)

          but you're really, really clueless on this and trumpet RW talking points so of course that is bluegrass50 accused you of.  

          You are WAY off base.
