quote: creatures survives just fine in the hot and cold climate. even human survives the cold climate.
quote: I didn't specify one way or another, if you assumed, that is your own fault.
quote: Regardless of arable land, any CO2 rise large enough to cause that much warming would also boost ag yields by 40-50%. Everyone would get fat.
quote: Yea! As long as we pretend that CO2 doesn't turn into acid rain when in the atmosphere, you are dead on. Are we going to argue the basic chemistry of that next?
quote: CO2 causes acid rain? I haven't heard acid raid being a issue in a long while. So, CO2 levels have rose, yet reports of acid rain have fallen?
quote: So your answer to chemistry is a loose correlation? Acid rain dropped cause they SEVERELY dropped sulfer dioxide and nitrogen oxide, which are also major contributors. If the CO2 gets too high though, it will cause acid rain when it mixes with water. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbonic_acid Please, argue with chemistry, that would be hilarious. Maybe you could argue some more correlation equaling causation, logic fail 101.
quote: Do you see what the discussion was about now?
quote: Or you can look at it rationally. Acid deposition is a natural occurrence.
quote: Oh, and and, the Cretaceous had CO2 levels of 1700 ppm, and the Devonian was 2200 ppm. Both times, life flushed wonderfully. Yes, CO2 sure is dangerous.
quote: Here's on for ya, well, him. "Acid rain" was first discovered in 1852. Clearly this is a naturally occurring phenomenon, unless he's seriously going to argue there was massive man made industrial pollution causing atmospheric changes in the 1800's.
quote: Air pollution in the 1800s was worse than it is now.
quote: The difference between correlation and causation makes my head hurt.
quote: OMFG here go's that Jason Mick again, with is FUD opinion
quote: I swear I thought this was going to be a masher article when I read the title. Has your perspective changed over the years Jason?
quote: those who would rather not have any environmental protections
quote: If you really want to get people's focus off global warming and onto more pressing issues - why not write articles about those issues?
quote: Do we assume this guy is right even in the face of that, or do we accept that based on his credibility, bias and funding, he may be wrong?
quote: The study was published [PDF] in the peer-reviewed journal Remote Sensing.
quote: Yea, we should totally trust this study, written by a shill who supports ID and thinks god runs the environment just for us and
quote: That's bigoted. It's the same as me saying a Muslim can't possibly publish an unbiased study on terrorism. Or that a Christian can't work in a lab.
quote: When a matter of science becomes a matter of politics, that's a dangerous game and serious threat to the integrity of any field of research.
quote: Sure, I would not trust that conclusion, but the premise should still be analyzed seperately.
quote: Plus he sounds like a retard who can't tell the difference between Creationism and Intelligent Design
quote: By the way, Freedom and Liberty are actually taken to heart by most Americans .
quote: There should be no "faith" in science. Science is not a belief system, it is a process of divining the truth.
quote: You can put your trust into scientists, but those scientists that have pushed AGW/CC have been all about selling us on faith instead of facts, thus proving themselves untrustworthy.
quote: author of the NASA study is affiliated with The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation which "is a conservative Christian public policy group that promotes a free-market approach to care for the environment while working against the current environmental movement. In particular, the Cornwall Alliance promotes climate change denial."He's a signatory to this Evangelical declaration, "We believe Earth and its ecosystems - created by God's intelligent design and infinite power and sustained by His faithful providence - are robust, resilient, self-regulating, and self-correcting, admirably suited for human flourishing, and displaying His glory. Earth's climate system is no exception."

quote: The data itself shows warming, but less than anticipated.
quote: As atmospheric CO2 increases (it is up 50% from 150 years ago) the rate of water absorption (as carbonic acid) increases as well.
quote: I don't see how one could claim intelligent design to be any more absurd than chaos or chance.
quote: Oh no it has a connection to the vast right wing conspiracy! It must not be true then! STFU!
quote: All the climatologists that come out in favor of man made global warming are paid off by the governments (you know via those lovely government GRANTS) so that the government can enact legislation to curb your lifestyle (you know carbon credits) which is quasi or total socialism.
quote: I really don't get why you use so many sensationalist phrases in these articles, rather than just writing them as a factual article.
quote: The new study isn't necessarily cause to abandon climate models altogether.
