Default "Human activities are changing Earth's climate"

The statement was released Monday by the American Geophysical Union, a more than 62,000-member-strong organization of Earth and space scientists who come from 144 countries. The non-profit traditionally renews its position statements every four years.

U.N. panel says it's more certain that humans drive global warming

Scientists are increasingly convinced that human activity is behind the increase in global temperatures since the 1950s, which has boosted sea levels and the odds of extreme storms, according to a leaked draft of an upcoming U.N. report.

"It is extremely likely that human influence on climate caused more than half of the observed increase in global average surface temperature from 1951 to 2010," according to a summary of the draft obtained by CNN. "There is high confidence that this has warmed the ocean, melted snow and ice, raised global mean sea level and changed some climate extremes in the second half of the 20th century."

That conclusion comes from the upcoming report of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the fifth in a series of multiyear reports seen as a benchmark on the subject. The panel's last report, in 2007, concluded that it was 90% certain that rising temperatures were due to human activity; the new draft raises that figure to 95%.

Still the best argument the deniers can't deny

I was thinking of writing a lengthy post about climate change denial being completely unscientific nonsense, but then geochemist and National Science Board member James Lawrence Powell wrote a post that is basically a slam-dunk of debunking. His premise was simple: If global warming isnít real and thereís an actual scientific debate about it, that should be reflected in the scientific journals.

He looked up how many peer-reviewed scientific papers were published in professional journals about global warming, and compared the ones supporting the idea that weíre heating up compared to those that donít. What did he find? This:


The thin red wedge.

Oh my. Powell looked at 13,950 articles. Out of all those reams of scientific results, how many disputed the reality of climate change?

Twenty-four. Yup. Two dozen. Out of nearly 14,000.


Now I know some people will just say that this is due to mainstream scientists suppressing controversy and all that, but let me be succinct: Thatís bull. Science thrives on dissenting ideas, it grows and learns from them. If there is actual evidence to support an idea, it gets published. I can point out copious examples in my own field of astronomy where papers get published about all manners of against-the-mainstream thinking, some of which come to conclusions that, in my opinion, are clearly wrong.

So let this be clear: There is no scientific controversy over this. Climate change denial is purely, 100 percent made-up political and corporate-sponsored crap. When the loudest voices are fossil-fuel funded think tanks, when they donít publish in journals but instead write error-laden op-eds in partisan venues, when they have to manipulate the data to support their point, then what theyíre doing isnít science.

Itís nonsense. And worse, itís dangerous nonsense. Because theyíre fiddling with the data while the world burns.

You are aware that the climate changes with or without us. "Proving climate change" is like proving the sky is blue.

You are aware that people die with or without murder.

Therefore, it's not a problem if someone is killed by someone else.

Right?

This is more like seeing people die every day and assuming all of them were murdered (while cashing in on grant money to say so)

Please find the nonanthropogenic causes for all the changes in the climate system we're observing.

Here's a new word for you to go look up: Anthropogenic. I'm assuming you know what a dictionary is.

We also have a "groupthink" about gravity.

Really? Show me the Intergovernmental Panel "consensus" paper on what causes it.

Here's the West Side highway during Sandy:


This photo provided by Dylan Patrick shows flooding along the Westside Highway near the USS Intrepid as Sandy moves through the area Monday, Oct. 29, 2012 in New York. Much of New York was plunged into darkness Monday by a superstorm that overflowed the city's historic waterfront, flooded the financial district and subway tunnels and cut power to nearly a million people.

Wow. A single weather event can fulfill long term climate predictions. Water wuz High in a Hurricane! Global Warmins! Global Warmins!

In that case...

Global Warmins Cancelled I guess. Wagsy's the dean of the Burgundy-Fantana Academy of Science.

Which are you, irrational or a conspiracy theorist?

Personally I think the board has let the data percolate enough, and we've come to the consensus that you're a dumbass.
