What do you figure the carbon taxes are doing?

Man, you are whacked.  LOL

Carbon taxes are trouncing the energy industry???

The taxes costing you more money and the energy industry only passes on what it is taxed but you still buy gas LOL

Trouncing??  LOL

How is this for being trounced LOL

That's about the dumbest thing I've read today.

More does need to be done to mitigate risk around built up areas but the Westbank fire jumped a 4km wide lake. You can't mitigate that.

Sometimes you have to take what mother nature throws at you, there is no beating mother nature when she is pissed off, but you can mitigate the damage. Not sure why so many on here is so opposed to change, and if climate change is only getting worse, we need a plan to combat that or perish in the flames...in the Army they say adapt or Die, pick one and get on with it...

Don't feel dumb, just realize you are uninformed :)

There are not so many, just a few and they are very adamant about it. :)

You can’t just pick one, you have to deal with both, otherwise the conditions you have to adapt too will continually get worse. We are past the point where we ever had a choice.

You are a fool, there is no other word for it.

"

What do we mean by fraudulent? How about this: NOAA has made repeated "adjustments" to its data, for the presumed scientific reason of making the data sets more accurate.

Nothing wrong with that. Except, all their changes point to one thing — lowering previously measured temperatures to show cooler weather in the past, and raising more recent temperatures to show warming in the recent present.

This creates a data illusion of ever-rising temperatures to match the increase in CO2 in the Earth's atmosphere since the mid-1800s, which global warming advocates say is a cause-and-effect relationship. The more CO2, the more warming.

But the actual measured temperature record shows something different: There have been hot years and hot decades since the turn of the last century, and colder years and colder decades. But the overall measured temperature shows no clear trend over the last century, at least not one that suggests runaway warming.

 

That is, until the NOAA's statisticians "adjust" the data. Using complex statistical models, they change the data to reflect not reality, but their underlying theories of global warming. "

Man-made climate change is just a big fraud.   Funny how many people will believe almost anything.

It is the same kind of thing as the Loch Ness monster.  Many people believe in that.

At one time many people believed the earth was flat too.

Even today many worship Mother Earth as if it is some kind of god.

Just look at how many people believe transgenderism is a natural occurrence.   

If you think humans are not gullible, think again.  Many people are gullible about many things, including man-made climate change.

No mention of rising ocean temperatures, rapidly increasing rate to glacial and sea ice melts. Increasing sea levels. All conveniently ignored. 90% of warming is happening in the oceans, not the atmosphere. Also ignored.

Nobody is ignoring it.   Pointless to discuss those things because they do not point to man as being the cause.

That article ignores it, what do you expect when you use a business outlet as a scientific source.

You claim the article ignores it, but nothing in what you mentioned supports the idea of climate change caused by man.  The article does not deny climate change exists.   How does rising ocean temperatures point to man as the cause?  

You are out of your league.

How much have sea levels risen?

It's within the normal fluctuation so cannot be definitively blamed on global warming. Not yet.

Sorry to inform you but the sky is not falling.

It does ignore it. They aren't even mentioned.I guess you would go to an accountant for a root canal.

The article I quoted is specifically about the NOAA giving misleading data.  The article is not about rising ocean temperatures.  You bring up something that is not directly related to the article and claim it should have been mentioned.  Phony argument.  Again, you are way over your head.

No, I mean we're still all in this together. I admit I'm kind of looking forward to the vindication, rubbing your noses in it and watching the horror of your mistakes slowly dawn on you. Not you specifically but the right wing generally. Many of you of course will remain hard-boiled die-hards until the day you die.

The NOAA data on atmosphere, it ignores every other source and the fact most of the heating is in the oceans. Your article is an editorial and also 5 years old. How many scientists do you think are on the staff of Investors Business Daily, a group that has a vested interest in the status quo? One of the sources it gives is an old study from the University of Alabama Huntsville but even the authors of that don't dispute humans are changing the climate, only the degree.

Quote

He added, though, that "it is scientifically inconceivable that after changing forests into cities, turning millions of acres into irrigated farmland, putting massive quantities of soot and dust into the air, and putting extra greenhouse gases into the air, that the natural course of climate has not changed in some way."[8]

 

John Christy one of the authors.

I wonder how much he has learned since 2003.

You evidently have learned nothing.

If you're trying to defend the left or Socialism, you are on the losing side.  Leftism or Socialism is evil and devilish.  It is built of on the idea of taking from those that have something and giving to those who don't.  It is built on Marxism or Communism.  The idea that the state knows better and can redistribute the wealth is at the core of Socialism.  That's what makes it evil.  It is STEALING from those that have to give to others or spread around.  Theft is a very basic commandment in the Bible that is condemned and forbidden.   So, there will be no vindication of leftists or Socialists (or liberals with the same ideology).  They are nothing more than thieves

False.  The ocean is not the source of heating.  You again demonstrate your lack of knowledge.  Nobody would agree with that claim.  Heat requires a source of energy.  The ocean is basically just a body of H2O.  It does not produce energy and therefore does not produce heat.  It absorbs radiation from the sun which heats the ocean and releases it into the atmosphere or earth.  The main source of heat is the solar radiation mainly from the sun and some from radiation from space. 

But that has nothing at all to do with the article I posted which shows the NOAA fudges the statistics on temperature change.

So...the governments shut down fossil fuels actively with taxes an refusal to allow the industry to flourish, hence prices go up and you think that means the governments are not trouncing on the industry?

How interestingly ridiculous.
