97% of  actively publishing climate scientists agree that there is man made climate change but fools on here know better. Can't trust those smart educated types I guess. 

 

https://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/

No, that's not what it says at that link. It states (emphasis added):

 

"Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals1 show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree*: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities."

 

Your statement is false. Facts matter. And it appears "fools on here" certainly know better about what was stated. Maybe we're not the fools you accuse us of being after all, sir?

Frankly, I am fascinated by how so many people believe the hysteria about climate change despite so many times the same climate change cult's predictions haven't come true. They're 0 for 41.

And we're supposed to keep believing the same people who have been caught manipulating data again and again after being caught in so many other lies?

 

And the people who doubt the rantings and dire warnings of the constant liars are the "deniers"????

 

Wow.

its sad that NASA of all people jumped on this bandwagon,

it used to be a respected entity.

i predict '97% scientists approve' will become a verb

in the future, and this junk science is casting a dark shadow on science and scientists, and our entire generation

as imbecilic, they are ridiculing science for the sake of

getting more funding, there is zero dignity and ethics in it

 

edit: here, take a look at cook and

the half a dozen enthusiasts

chatting on how to create this consensus

Yeah, they love regurgitating the 97% lie.

Even worse, proposing things like moving people to higher ground, retrofitting building and eliminating aviation are flat out INSANE.

Have to disagree on the aviation. The current policy of increasing air travel over and above the levels of the 90s is what is INSANE.

Mass cheap air travel is destroying Thailand beaches, and destroyed Boracay beach in the Phillipines and no doubt thousands of other once beautiful places around the planet.

It's not even as if it's for a good cause. Mass tourism doesn't care about the environment- it's all about staying in a big beauty destroying concrete box and getting a sun tan, with a lot of drinking and displays of local dancing tarted up for the tourists.

Local transport should be by hi speed rail, and mass international air transport for recreation needs to be scaled back severely. It's destroying too many places to be continued, without even considering air pollution.

The science is settled and no amount of posturing from pundits on here will change that.

I very much doubt any serious scientist would ever say that the science is settled.

Science is always evolving, as new information comes to light.

 

That statement goes in the same category as saying 97% of scientists agree ( on anything ).

BINGO! Since the dawn of man, men have adapted to their circumstances. The more technology advances, the more humans can adapt. We are now more able to adapt to the ever-changing climate than any time in history. Yet liberals are more hysterical about the ever-changing climate, even when just a easy look at temperature trends over time indicates what we already know: the only constant with climate is that it's always changing.

To know why the hysteria is happening, we have to know who is behind the movement. 

I think we need to find out who benefits from the chaos.

Follow the money!

when the reporter stated the industry was all about sex and drugs, to which he replied: horrible isnt it ? 😍

I support her and the efforts for activism to promote the need for a change in the current amount of carbon emissions.

 

Why deny something with so much science behind it? Rising global temperatures making the sea levels rise.

It's only like 100 companies that are responsible for the majority of emissions.

 

" It gets even worse. The Carbon Majors Report revealed that more than half of all industrial emissions over the past 30 years were put out by just 25 corporate and state-owned entities. Twenty-five companies are killing us, smothering us, stealing our futures while choking us (and not the fun kind of consensual choking done in the bedroom. This is the bad kind of choking that results in drought and hurricanes and your dog stuck in a tree!). "

On a side note, anyone seen that death metal remake of her speech? 👍

You guys still going on about this

Weeks ago a teenage girl made a speech you disapprove of, and you guys are still going on about it.  It's getting a little perverse.  Or do you guys get paid to do this?

 

Who the hell takes teenagers seriously anyway?  Or are some of you those incels I've been hearing about?

How much has it risen where you are? Where I am it's rising at about a millimetre or so every year? Too little to even notice. Don't think it's risen any higher than when I was a boy.

And the science that the UN scientists decided on, bears almost no relation to the apocalyptic nonsense that Greta Thunberg has been spouting all around the globe.

 

As an informed supporter of UN science, can you link to the bit where the UN scientists state - or endorse the idea - that "Around the year 2030, 10 years 252 days and 10 hours away from now, we will be in a position where we set off an irreversible chain reaction beyond human control, that will most likely lead to the end of our civilisation as we know it."?

 

That was one of the most prominent statements in Greta's address to the UK parliament, and I would appreciate your help in finding out where UN scientists said that, or anything like it.

The science is settled and she is telling leaders of the world to do their job and do something.

 

how dare she.
