    @RJJ

    Yes, thank you for providing the definition that shows me to be right, or perhaps you don’t know what a ‘long period is’, from the wikipedia article, which gives a more in depth explanation of the definition.

    Climate (from Ancient Greek klima, meaning inclination) is commonly defined as the weather averaged over a long period.[4] The standard averaging period is 30 years,[5] but other periods may be used depending on the purpose. Climate also includes statistics other than the average, such as the magnitudes of day-to-day or year-to-year variations.

    The classical period is 30 years, as defined by the World Meteorological Organization

    Now sit down and shut up.

    Oh wait, right of course, I forgot about the myth of scientists being paid by the government to make things up… i tend to forget about things thare are total fantasy and the stuff of paranoid conspiracy BS.

    You want to try again moron?

    If by ‘concise’ you mean ‘bogus’ and ‘basically worthless’? Okay.

    @Miltons

    Oh one of my coward posters shows up now. Hello coward. You’re going to explain how I’m a liberal right? Of course you’re not, you’re a coward.

    It’s been so debunked that you’re providing data right? Like my above link, to NASA, who of course are all part of the conspiracy. I could also link to Consensus Project, or any number of other things.

    But you be sure and provide some sources, provided of course you’re not too cowardly to do that either.

    @firearm

    Yes yes, all a conspiracy, except that it is a statement of fact that 97% of climate scientists support the idea of man made climate change, why is that again?

    @RJJ

    I continue to find it funny that the ‘counter’ to Bill Nye is that he’s ‘not a scientist!’

    What, you are? I am? The talking heads on the radio are? Why is it that only time we hear the ‘not a scientist!’ BS line is when people like you are trying to talk about people who say things, supported by science, that you don’t like?

  • May 30, 2015 at 6:12pm

    97% of climate scientists link humans to cimate change. If you are trying to say that a “majority” of scientists don’t support climate change, you are completely delusional.

    ‘Chem trails’

    Oh wow, there is somebody here crazier than the deniers.

    Google. What is that?

    ‘Coldest several years in decades’

    Based on what data?

    Al Gore is an exploitive moron who doesn’t actually know what he’s talking about.

    Yes, there’s a feedback loop, an increase in temperature can also contribute to an increase in CO2 levels, just as an increase in CO2 levels can contribute to an increase in temperature.

    Except we’ve figured out that this is not part of the feedback loop, due the rate at which CO2 levels are increasing vs temperature vs sun activity, the last of which is actually down, meaning we should be getting cooler, but we’re not, we continue to gain energy, and our CO2 levels are now at 400ppm.

    He hasn’t worked for PBS in years to the best of my knowledge.

    Today on ‘why is this stupid’

    Is it a fact or not a fact that we have linked cigarette smoking to cancer? Yes, it is a fact that we have linked cigarette smoking to cancer. Whether it’s the tobacco or the other components in the cigarettes is completely and utterly meaningless. Smoking cigarettes causes cancer, and other health problems, this is a fact.

    Nobody even brought up the fact that it might be X component vs Y component of the cigarettes, what they brought up was the undeniable, confirmed, and emperically supported facts that cigarettes are linked to an increased risk of cancer.

    Okay, now that your entire talking point has been crushed with relative ease, you can try addressing what he actually said.

    If a politician adamantly insisted that smoking cigarettes was not linked to cancer…

    And again, it doesn’t matter one whit what component causes said cancer…

    …And insisted that scientists were all wrong, lying, and that the studies they produced were bogus…

    How seriously could you take that politician?

    Monk Manuver in 3…2…1!

    It’s amusing as hell to me that we constantly hear about how ‘He’s just making money!’

    Yeah, the celebrity deniers? Totally not making buck off this.

  • [-4] May 30, 2015 at 4:11pm

    Oh? Can you name any of them? Wait, let me guess, the Oregon Petition?

    ‘Not all’, I suppose that’s technically correct. just 97% of the actual experts in the field.

    And you base this profound conclusion on what?

  • [-3] May 30, 2015 at 4:04pm

    So tell me, what’s the difference between a scientist and an engineer?

  • [2] May 30, 2015 at 1:41pm

    I think it has more to do with tried and true methods of group controll.

    It’s easy to keep people united and distracted if you give them a ‘common enemy’. It’s how the various Islamic despots in the Middle East don’t get overthrown, by keeping people whipped up in to an irrational hate against ‘the enemy’.
