Comments on: Only dreaming of a “White Christmas”? Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: justin Mon, 05 Jan 2009 19:02:56 +0000 Have a happy new year everyone i have to go out and from all the snow and ice we just got…

Can’t wait to see the warming part of “global warming” here all we see is the cooling part of “global warming.”

The Farmers Almanac says that this year will be colder and have more snow then last year, i wounder what one will be right will it be warmer or colder here? but ether way global warming must be right because everyone knows it is… lets all jump on the global warming bandwagon and maybe they can come over to help dig us out.

By: justin Mon, 05 Jan 2009 18:53:26 +0000 Here in Wisconsin we almost beat our december snowfall record. We had a record setting winter last year and are on track to do it agian this year. But don’t worry about record snowfalls it is a part of global warming…
Before you can ask if the current theory about global warming is correct you must first ask if it can be wrong. Global warming predicts both record high and low temps, the earth getting drier and more storms or less storms depending on the modle you use, it even predicts there being an ice age.
If they cannot agree on the outcome how can it be tested? A scientific theory must be testable, repeatable, and used to make predictions. Because of the size it cannot be repeated in the real world. the predictions that you would test are so veried that there is no way for it to be wrong. So it fails the simplest requirements of science but does fall under psudo-science.

In December, 650 scientists from around the world authored a paper saying that the theory of “MAN-MADE” global warming is not substantiated by the science. Only 5 scientists were needed by the U.N. to declare a global “Warming” emergency. Those 5 are paid by and funded by………..wait for it………ta da: THE U.N. A totally political and a-scientific organization. Who gains by global warming? The U.N. Who loses if global warming is a myth? The U.N. As long as the U.N. continues to rake in billions upon billions of dollars, dinars, euros, etc. there will be plenty of one-sided journalists who continue to push the fabrication that global warming is MAN-MADE.

By: Kiki Mon, 29 Dec 2008 04:14:55 +0000 The debate gets lost, again. Honestly who cares which one is right…doubt on, my friends. What we are asking for from the doubters, is something that is GOOD for you too.

We are not asking you to believe, that would be a waste of our time and energy, belief takes faith and faith is not instilled by argument, it comes from within the individual.

We are asking you to do something that makes sense and only serves to bring money into your own pocket.

Turn off your lights when you are not using them, be conscientious of the footprint that you leave on the planet, this will save you money and improve the property and save and preserve things you own.

Buy energy saving appliances. This is going to SAVE you money on electric bills and water bills. You keep resisting what costs you nothing and benefits you greatly.

Wear a sweater, turn your thermostat down a bit..enjoy the feeling of knowing what season you are in…so that in the seasons, you will know the earth again.

Doubt the science, but what we are asking is that you do something that HELPS you, puts money IN your pocket instead of taking it out and GIVING it to a large corporation. You have nothing to loose and everything to gain, why fight what is a benefit to you?

Are you so twisted, owned and bought by large corporations that you fight to give them your livelihood and take the money and food away from your future and your children?

Who are you people? Who is it that you think you are protecting, your corporate slave masters? I assure you that they have no thought for you and are perfectly capable of taking care of themselves, as they ALWAYS have.

But scientis models are exactly that – models and frequently are biased and value based because many of them are activists based on religious type of hypocritical values.

Using the UN as a credible source should be in the fiction books. The UN is NOT credible. Look at their track record.

Adaptation should be our emphasis.

By: Jacob Fri, 26 Dec 2008 16:44:02 +0000 I remember five to ten years ago here in Texas we would routinely get down to the low teens.

This year, the lowest temperature has been 27 degrees, and that was quickly followed the next day by 70 degree weather.

In some places its colder, but in many others its getting much warmer.

This year we also had the most 100 degree weather days in the summer. I can only remember a couple of days that were below 95.

By: Marv Fri, 26 Dec 2008 15:55:05 +0000 Climate change is constant in all celestial bodies. This planet is always changing. Nothing to do with human activity. Our presence here is only a speck compared with how old and powerful this planet and universe are. People need to start putting things in prespective and not let the “green” industry and religion rule their lives.

By: Tim Fri, 26 Dec 2008 04:25:55 +0000 who cares. worst and coldest winter for many a year.
ice age or global meltdown. Its got to get warm to get enough humidity in the air to get a lot of snow that would cause an ice age. Up and down , up and down.

By: Kristopher Stone Fri, 26 Dec 2008 02:47:38 +0000 Climate change is real. But to argue that climate change is causing less snow this year is absolutely absurd. I’m in Southern CA with more snow than I’ve seen in a while.

By: censored Wed, 24 Dec 2008 18:42:21 +0000 isnt it funny how a ‘hottopic’ like AGW isnt eliciting more comments on so prestigious and busy a website as reuters? especially at a time in the year when everyone has time to go online and air their views? is that because any and almost all comments crying ‘bs’ are being removed? and the majority of comments anyones posting are crying ‘bs’? i posted three comments earlier, all civil, reasonably (!) spelt and punctuated. none of them have been permitted into the comments section when i check back a few hours later. shame on you.
