---Elder on 7/13/12

Funny the southeast went through the warmest winter yet, having 90+ degrees in March.

But I asked you, will many scoff when it will be so hot God shortens the days?

My point is, maybe these weather patterns, earthquakes etc are OF GOD, the beginning of the end...and Satan is just using Al Gore and company to muddy the waters, and those like yourself playing right into Satan's hands.

Even Isaiah prophecied long before Revelation was written:

Isaiah 51:6
Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: ---
---kathr4453 on 7/14/12

kathr, If you knew the Word of God and the events in the Book of Revelation you would realize that Global warming is not the same as what God reveals and what Al Gore and his cronies push.
Gore has become rich because weak minds accept what he has said as gospel. We just went through the coldest winter in a while so where was global warming then?
---Elder on 7/13/12

Elder, are you the same Elder of all these years who teaches Revelation?

If yes, how and what are people going to say when the world will actually be so hot, God is going to have to shorten the days?

I really wonder then if people will scoff, not at Al Gore, but God's Word.

It will be interesting!

We see an increase in earthquakes etc etc, why not Global Warming at GOD's Hand. After all, we are going right into end times....and you should know that...if you are the same Elder that use to post here.
---kathr4453 on 7/13/12

Nurse: I use the same data sources, but I apply science and common sense to them rather than the politico-religious fervor you attach to certifiable nutcases like Al Gore. Yes, I realize that the 100-year average is increasing as part of a natural cycle, but that wasn't the point of discussion. The global rise of CO2 caused by China and India is a very recent thing, and you have yet to offer an explanation as to how it bucks Crazy Al's theory.

Your vapid attempt at a technical explanation for the atmospheric greenhouse effect was pathetic. Perform a spectral convolution integral of radiative earth output with the narrow CO2 absorbtion bands in the infrared region (vs. broadband water vapor spectrum) and get back to me.

---jerry6593 on 7/13/12

jerry6593, you have made Nurse go into hiding it seems.
You have to realize that he is trained by the same group that has made me into a terrorist because I have a dozen of eggs in my frig. You know a 7 day supply of food.
Too many good people swallow anything the socialist say. Those who are knowledgeable get slandered by the lies of the socialist and their agenda puppets.
Thanks for your posts. Keep on.
---Elder on 7/12/12

Jerry, my left wing political propaganda includes NOAA, GISS, Operation NOAH, NASA, GKSS and about 2 dozen other sites. Each of them confirm the same thing, the global average temperature is increasing. So where is YOUR right wing propaganda coming from? Take a look at temperatures over the last 100 years. You argument comes down to: "it's cooler this evening than it was this morning so global warming must be false." You were wrong the first time you said it and your wrong now.

You should know that CO2 is not the only greenhouse gas. Methane, CFCs as well as WATER, make up greenhouse gases. These gases work to trap infrared energy, increasing temperatures. Is this simple enough for you?
---NurseRobert on 7/12/12

Nurse: You should find a new source for your science facts instead of relying on left wing political propaganda. From the peak in 1998 to the minimum in early 2012, average satellite-measured global temperature DROPPED almost 0.8 deg. C., while the global CO2 level rose considerably. EXPLAIN THAT! And while you're at it, explain the physics of CO2's influence on the atmospheric greenhouse effect. I'll bet you can't explain either one. But then again, neither could your mentor Al Gore -inventor of the internet.

Don't you realize that the Green Movement started as an offshoot of Communism - the political pipe dream in which you delight?

---jerry6593 on 7/12/12

Kathr, I hope you eat banana's with the skin still on because that is they way it grows. I also hope you don't eat spaghetti or any prepared meals like that because spaghetti noodles don't grow in nature. Either does pasta sauce, you have to harvest it and modify it from tomatoes. I hope you don't eat bread, because bread doesn't grow that way. People make it by modifying things that do grow in nature. The same way candy is made.
---Jed on 7/11/12

Becuase youre wrong, Jerry, the average global temperature has INCREASED over the last 20 years. Notwithstanding temperature anomalies, the 20 warmest years in the last century have been in the last 30 years with the warmest 10o in the last 12. You can't look at year to year or even nation to nation. You have to look at the big picture.. something you are missing.
---NurseRobert on 7/11/12

Jed, common sense says, "If it didn't GROW that way, don't eat it".

Candy is BAD for you!
---kathr4453 on 7/11/12

Anyone who would try to convince me that today's headache was cause by the candy I ate today, knowing that I have suffered from these headaches all my life, would have to be a complete moron. But what we have today is a bunch of "doctors" trying to convince us of just that, when there is not a shred of evidence to support that claim, and obviously, that is the most illogical conclusion. Why would they be saying that? Because they are employed by the competitors of the candy I ate and they are being paid, or getting a kick back, for saying that. And people are just too gullible to stop and logically think and realize that it doesn't make any sense that the candy I ate today caused a headache I have been suffering from all my life.
---Jed on 7/11/12

Nurse Robert: OK. Even if we use your 45% number, you still haven't explained the physics of CO2-induced greenhouse effect, or how the 45% increase in atmospheric CO2 over the last two decades has resulted in a lowering of global temperatures - the exact opposite of the theory.

I'll wait for your answers.

---jerry6593 on 7/11/12

Peter, I understand and agree with what you are saying. Sure, it is a possibility that humans are contributing to global warming. But since it has been occuring long before the advent of human industry, and in greater magnitude, it would stand to reason that we are not causing it now. That would be like if I had suffered from migraine headaches every day of my life, and today I tried a new candy for the first time and got a headache after. Sure it could POSSIBLY be the candy that gave me a headache today, possibly. But since I have had a headache everyday of my life before eating the candy, I can logically assume it was not caused by the candy.
---Jed on 7/10/12

Jed: Entirely true, but I think your term 'TOTALLY BOGUS' is not fully proven. I DON'T mean it's wrong -I just mean that because we don't fully understand WHY the weather is (apparently) warming, I don't think we can say that 'human effect IS NOT the effect'. It is likely not, but I can't prove THAT EITHER!You provide evidence, that the earth has warmed many time without human effect - I agree

But there is also A POSSIBILITY that some of the warming is ALSO connected with human action.

The big problem with weather (and I'm only a chemist, not a climatologist!) is that the atmosphere is so complex that it is so hard to model

But I think in reality we agree - I just would not go so far - but I respect your views
---Peter on 7/10/12

Peter, agreed, good point. But the point that I am making is that we do know, through geological evidence, that there have been long periods of extreme heat and extreme cold (ie. the ice age) that were brought on completely free of human influence. So weather the earth is indeed experiencing a period of warming or not, the idea that it is being caused by human industry is completely bogus. According to archeologists, the earth has been experiencing periods of warming and cooling for millions of years. The idea of man-caused global warming is only valid if global warming didn't regularly occur without the influence of man, but we know it did.
---Jed on 7/10/12

Jed: 'Tempurature changes over the last 100 years are far less than changes that can be found in other 100 year periods since the earth began. '

While I neither agree nor disagree with you, I don't think we can really SAY how much temperature changed in the past, because we did not have any good way of measuring it.

It is possible of course that the changes at some points were rapid, but it is hard to really demonstrate that.
---Peter on 7/10/12

Jerry and NurseRoberts: The two of you have a very good point, both of you.

Before any one can have a debate, it is necessary to have an accepted method of deciding whether data (a particular piece of data) is reliable.

I am not sure whether in this case even this is reliable, but I wold say that data published in a peer-reviewed journal (whether a journal agreeing or disagreeing with the global warming theory, that is not the issue) can be considered 'reliable'.

HOWEVER, from previous reading,journalist reports about what peer-revieved journals said are commonly inaccurate, because the journalist did not understand it!
---James on 7/10/12

Jerry, just where do you get your data? Do you make it up as you go along? Do you pick and choose what stats suit your needs?

Worldwide, CO2 emissions have risen 45% in the last 20 years. CO2 emissions have increased in China and decreased in both Europe and the US. Its estimated that non-biogentic (i.e. manmade) emissions totaled 22.7 billion metric tons in 1990 and 31.6 billion metric tons in 2008, not nearly the 100 fold you claim.

According to NOAA, the Global average has shown a long-term global warming trend since the early 20th century. The 20 warmest years have all occurred since 1981, and the 10 warmest have all occurred in the past 12 years.
---NurseRobert on 7/10/12

Nurse Robert: "Unlike you I like to research as [sic] subject"

Good! Then maybe if you'd apply a little thinking rather than being a puppet for that great "scientist" Al Gore, you could explain the physics of the greenhouse effect and its dependence on CO2. Then maybe you could come up with a rational explanation as to why the 100-fold increase in atmospheric CO2 over the last two decades has resulted in a lowering of global temperatures - the exact opposite of his theory. I realize that leftist liberals emote rather than think, but give it a try. You might enjoy it.

---jerry6593 on 7/10/12

Tempurature changes over the last 100 years are far less than changes that can be found in other 100 year periods since the earth began. Long before the advent of modern industry. Any tempurature changes that have occured in the past 100 years are indicative of normal patterns that occur over thousands of years.

NurseRobert,there is disagreement between scientists as to whether climate change is anything but a long-term cyclical process, not a result of human activity.

Anyone old enough will know that c30 years ago scientists were warning about the coming of a new ice age. And that oil had almost run out.

Records show that between 1408-1814 the Thames river (London U.K.) froze many times, the ice being up to 46 cm (18") thick! This did not occur before nor has it since. Research on stalactites in Italian Alps shows the Roman period of BC400 to 0 has temperatures similar to or higher than that which we experience today.
---Warwick on 7/9/12

Jerry, If I looked at the last 12 months I would see variations and THATS why you use a large sample. You cant look at the last year, or the last couple of decades. If you look at the "trend" over the last 100 years its going UP, not down, and NOT staying the same. If you look at the CO2/Temp relations for the last 400,000 years you could see this. Oh, wait, your earth is only, what, 6000 yers old?

Unlike you I like to research as subject, not get it from right wing talking heads. For someone supposedly as smart as you, Im surprised.
---NurseRobert on 7/9/12

Nurse Robert: "If you look at temperatures over the last 100 years you will see a steady increase in temps."

No, what you will see is trends with a lot of cyclical variations. These variations change directly with increased or decreased solar activity. The most recent two-decade trend has been global cooling due to minimal solar flare activity. At the same time, CO2 output from China has gone through the roof. That inverted relationship is an "inconvenient truth" for you and your political propagandist news outlets I realize, but one you still need to address.

---jerry6593 on 7/9/12

Jed, don't worry the polar bears are going to migrate to Southern Australia where we are having the coldest winter I can remember, after the coldest summer for decades. If it wasn't for global warming we would be freezing to death.

But now the Global Warming organization prefers to mutter about Climate Change. Who told them climate doesn't change. The earth's history is one of cool periods followed by warmer periods followed by.... In the late 1600's the River Thames in London froze over and shops were opened on the ice!

I don't know if you remember but the same type of 'experts' were adamant we were facing Global Freezing c30 years ago. And the oil was about to run out.

I will let you know when the bears arrive.

---RICHARDC on 7/8/12

Peter, you make a great argument. Lets stop doing it here and give it to China. What difference would it make? None. It might make us look better but it doesn't change a thing. People don't want to admit that the reason we are all in trouble in this world "is because of sin."
As in the case of Jesus death. Jews were never responsible for the death of Jesus, though through centuries the RCC blamed them. He died because of the sin of the world. We should call it what it is. Greed, power, domination, money, envy etc.

Can you explain this contradiction of the global warming paradigm? jerry

yes, as our attitudes towards one another grows chillier, our mouths get wider spewing many hot gases. the balance shifts but the dynamic remains.

Al Gore Worshippers: Global temperatures have fallen significantly in the last 15 years. Yet the total worldwide CO2 output has risen exponentially over the same period (mostly because of Chinese coal burning). Can you explain this contradiction of the global warming paradigm?

---jerry6593 on 7/7/12

Jed: 'would know that there will never be not enough trees to absorb the carbon dioxide.'

The question as to whether the trees really need or don't need to absorb the carbon is not really our job to decide.

However, since we cannot decide (and neither can Al Gore) someone will have to make that decision.

The only thing I can say is that such decisions must NOT be made with emotions involved.

So let some scientists get together, in a quiet room, to make a decision

BUT - if they decide that the US should not make more carbon.... they will move the factory to China.

If it's not worldwide, it's USELESS

If such regulation is necessary, of course!

Kathr, you are just repeating the garbage from the lefties in Washington. There is no scientific data to back up any of your claims. There is absolutely no corrolation between the population of Atlanta and global warming. That's just absurd. Secondly, It is good that we produce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Trees and plants need carbon dioxide to live. We are providing more air for the plants, and they in turn can provide more oxygen for us. You obviously have never been to the rain forest or you would know that there will never be not enough trees to absorb the carbon dioxide.

Eloy: "government regulation is the answer"

Government regulation is NEVER the answer! It merely advances the cause of despotism. Man-made global warming is a politically-motivated HOAX. CO2 is insignificant as a greenhouse gas. Unlike water vapor (the ONLY significant greenhouse gas - and an atmospheric refrigerant), CO2 absorbs infrared radiation only in two narrow spectral bands. CO2 is heavier than air - thus it can't contribute to upper atmospheric radiative heat loss to space. Finally, CO2 constitutes only 300 ppm of atmospheric gas - not at all significant!

Most importantly, God - not government - is in charge of this planet. Pray to Him instead!

How does the cutting down of rainforests cause global warming?
The trees of the rainforest absorb carbon dioxide and turns it into oxygen.
More trees cut down causes less carbon dioxide to get absorbed which builds up in the atmosphere with the other greenhouse gases and leads to global warming.

---kathr4453 on 7/2/12

Kathr, I'm referring to any "ice age" that ever happened. I'm not a geology buff so I wont argue about when the ice age happened or how. My point is that all major changes in the climate have occured BEFORE human's began using electricity, gasoline, automobiles, factories, etc. No significant climate change has occurred since the industrial revolution. Just a little common sense for those who say that humans caused global warming. Gobal warming (and cooling) has been going on since the world existed and has actually not changed since the advent of industry. Global warming is real, but the idea that humans could ever have any effect on such a monumentous natural occurrance is nothing short of political hoax for money laundering.
---Jed on 7/2/12

jerry6593, While the Montreal Protocol has helped regulate the chlorofluorocarbons, much much more should be done in the way of carbon emmissions from motor vehicles and factory smoke stacks, for while chlorine is known to deplete the ozone, I think the build up of carbon, methane and nitrogen does much more damage to the stratosphere ozone layer and the warming greenhouse effect causing climatic changes and increases human carcinomas and respiratory damages, known to be exceedingly great in high populated metropolitan areas. The introduction of cleaner air laws where auto makers and industries burning carbon must comply to Alcohol conversion engines or some other remedial source by government regulation is the answer.

I'm really not sure how much "global warming" isn't just hype. Yes, the temp of the earth has increased over the past decade or two. But it has not exceeded some measurements made in the 1800's ( how they measured then, I'm unsure). Also all projections are computerized on the assumtion that the present trend will continue. These "experts" don't take into account that many conditions on earth are cyclical. If this warming trend is part of a cycle, all their prognostications are wrong.

Alan8869, I was not sure. I know when I ordered my new Laborghini, it did not meet the U.S. emmissions standards. (LOL, I wish!)

The answer to the first question is yes. The answer to the second question is I personally am indifferent about this. And while this problem exists it has not surprised God by appearing, but rather is in the divine plan for our planet which one day of course will burn up. And from that gaseous state will be formed into a new earth which is where we will spend eternity.

When global warming was "announced" back in the 1980s I did not believe it then, and I still do not believe it. Just doesn't make sense... how come the summers have become cooler with less really hot days. One day this summer it was so cold I had to put winter clothes on. Wonder if it has something to do with the New World Order? -- after all they have got the whole world believing that there is global warming, which could then lead to total control of the people?

The reason the U.S. didn't sign the Kyoto agreement was not due to a denial of, nor indifference to, global warming. (Though the projected effects are subject to some scientific doubt) The agreement, as written, would place few restrictions on newly industrialized countries like India and China that produce much larger amounts of uncontrolled pollution than other countries (including the United States). Yet, it would require the U.S. to pay most of the cost worldwide. No compromise could be reached.

"Yes" is the answer to both of your questions. Global warming is causing ice caps to melt at an faster pace.This is making the oceans and seas rise to new levels. It's also changing the weather patterns. The destruction of the ozone layer is one of the causes of global warming, and one of the by-products is a lack of protection from the harmful rays of the sun. This means the government has to regulate, since you know the auto industry won't do it.

Save the planet from what? Personally, I wouldn't mind a little global warming. Winters without snow sound pretty good. A little unpublicized fact is that the average global temperature has not risen for the past 7 years. Another unpublicized fact is that the ozone layer is replenishing itself. Remember that big panic?

Fred ... In Europe we certainly have emission control on our cars, although I do not know how this compares with your smog restrictions. Our car engines are much smaller so produce less exhaust fumes. European countries signed up to Kyoto, whilst the USA still appears to deny that our actions create global warming.
