Climate science settled?

December 2, 2013

Contrary to what President Barack Obama claims, the science on climate change is far from settled. That conclusion can be drawn from a new scientific repor....

Climate science is settled. Except for people who are not climate scientists.

Ask the Koch Brothers who paid their science skeptic to prove them wrong. Unfortunately he was actually a scientist and found out that yes there is Man Made warming that is way beyond normal climate change. He was fired shortly after his report was provided.

Tonight I'm basking in the moonlight grilling some dogs on the grill. When will this heat wave end? Would rather be in the boat but don't have skids on it. I'm all for warming but when does it start?

The schools are on the hotline tonight, begging everyone they call to vote yes for higher taxes.

Seems awful funny how they think everyone, whether they can afford it or not, should pay for everyones kids, not just your own, its your job to pay for all kids, the rest of your life.

These poor kids cant learn without new walls around them, give me a break, whats that say to kids.

In other words, don't strive for better things kids, the government will take care of you, or should I say property owners.

Socialism is a dependency disease!

Veritas, Seems Paul Ryan has introduced some bills with exactly how they were going to be paid up front. But just remember, your party owns the "we have to pass it to see what's in it". Now that is the mack daddy of all unpaid for legislation of all time. The rest are a microcosm next to that biggie. And now what is your beloved one going to do when, as I predicted, the 19-34 age bracket isn't going to sign up for it. Is he going to hold them by gun point, lead them to their bank and basically steal the money? Not sure what else he could do. The thing is DOA

well centerfield, I hate to be the guy that breaks it to you but I don't claim to be a republican. There isn't a one on either side of the aisle that are worth their weight in spoiled milk. But let's pretend your claims about Reagan and the more recent republican presidents are true. How do you explain what Obama has done to the deficit in just five years. Yes I know congress had a huge part in it but he surely could have not put his signature to it. But let me guess, and I'll save you the trouble of typing it. It's Bush's fault.

Well, if we are into philanthropic endeavors, maybe we should look at the track record of the Republicans and their kool aide drinking followers like you chad. Economic history of the last four Republican administrations show a complete disregard for economic conservatism. Each administration spent and spent with the majority of the charity going to the well to do and the giant corporations. Even the guru of the party, Reagan, stated that deficits did not matter. Then you throw in the medicare D bill which gifted billions to the pharmaceuticals, the tax gift to the wealthy that has cost trillions in budget deficits, the current and extended cost of the wars that will lead to trillions (3-4) in additional costs to the deficit, and many more subsidies/tax gifts to the big corporations. Whew, that is excessive and not the ones you want taking money out of your wallet, chad. carry on with your bad selves.

"The freaks are free to believe in whatever fantasies they want -- but don't expect the rest of us to subsidize it in the real world."

Some have said this, or something like it, about those who are convinced about climate change...

Veritas: May b your best comment ever. The "real science" previously called carbon dioxide the culprit. The right refused to believe it or the fact that sea levels are rising and the ice cap is melting. Now the left must believe the new science. So the right was right even when they were wrong and now they r right? Do they believe the ice caps r melting or not?

one of the most enjoyable things for me is reading what liberals say to support the global warming theory. Or is it climate change. Well maybe that's going to change again next week who knows.

Gas-fired power plants are 40 percent efficient.

Coal-fired power plants are 40 percent efficient.

Tepco is building two new coal-fired power plants at the site of the nuclear power plant that was destroyed by the tsunami. Tepco chose coal over the other fuels. Their stock was 112 yen and is now 549 yen.

One single decision in investment strategy can make a big difference in confidence on how the business operates. Coal seems to have an advantage from an investment perspective. Ample supply would be a deciding factor.

The new coal-fired plants have new coal technology with an increased efficiency of 20 percent.

Innovation and technology will solve many problems in the future. It really is just beginning.

We need the cattle even though they produce methane because if you leave grass stand it produces relatively large quantities of nitrous oxides. Much stronger at warming than methane.

We are still coming out of what is called a glacial period and many yeas from now we will enter the inter- glacial period. The earth has been through this cycle several times and that is a proven fact.

Really, MDN? The warmer the atmosphere gets the more tundra and ice melts, the more methane is released. The carbon dioxide released by the burning of fossil fuels warms the atmosphere. It is all intertwined. Stick your head in the sand if you want to.Field biologist?Faux news and their paid "scientists" no one else will hire. Most scientists agree, about 97% last count.

A California field biologist has more or less debunked 'global warming', and the climate scientists that have been crowing about climate change and global warming are suffering an embarrassing setback.

The title of the book by Jim Steele is 'Landscapes and Cycles: An Environmentalist's Journey to Climate Skepticism'.

Mr. Obama is far behind the curve when it comes to global warming. He's out to lunch.

Also, there are big changes coming in oil exploration as well which may have an effect on how oil is drilled in North Dakota. Robots will have a significant role in oil exploration and drilling in the future.
