September 29, 2013

“But if climate change causes severe weather, how to explain this year?” your Sept. 21 editorial asks rhetorically....

Even Bobbie admits there is global warming. Case closed.

Weather is forever changing, climate changes over thousands if not millions of years. More and more scientist, insurance executives and apparently CEOs are saying the climate is changing and we need to do something. Now if the rest of the backward thinking conservatives (conservative, how is that for an oxymoron) could only see what is happening before it is too late. There are some that believe it is already too late. Enjoy this warmer than usual weather.

The CEO of Exxon said that carbon based fuels is the cause of global warming and we need to adopt. Seems odd a carbon based CEO would say that. I see that Yaw and Marino joined the air standards fight opposing tighter restrictions for emissions. Got to love republicans. They hate clean air, they hate the poor and in the same breath quote scripture. I also see Marino has yet to say if he will forgo his pay if the government shuts down.

Climate change is undeniable. The question is, is it a natural occurring phenomenon or is it caused by us? In the 70's and 80's when I was a teen/young adult the mantra from the environmental nuts was we were headed to an ice age because of the high CO2 levels. In the 90's and 2000's the mantra changed to 'Global Warming'. Since neither one of those panned out the mantra now is 'Climate Change'.

They are safe with climate change because climate change since the climate is ever changing.

"The CEO of Exxon says it is so."--Rick424

So now you're a big fan of oil company executives? Lots of CEOs are getting on the climate change bandwagon. Not because of any proof that it's actually happening, but because it's a good marketing move (they think). If he had said that it was bogus, he would risk the climate change religion initiating a boycott. I love how people talk about the science. I've looked at their data and it's not science at all. It is related to science, but it fails miserable on the scientific method. I guess global warming could be considered political science, but that's as close as it gets to science.

Gee people. There are other parts of the world. Record temperatures in Europe and Asia comes to mind. Yes the deniers are in force today. Very, very good letter.

The CEO of Exxon says it is so.

Mr. Bassett pointed out weather events that did not support the title of the editorial. So I think he supported his contention very well. However, I do think the last paragraph contained the same hyperbole that was in the editorial that prompted his letter.

Republicans don't do science very well. Just deny and denigrate it when it conflicts with your worldview. Benghazi!

"Of course, "climate change" is a difficult, tricky scientific subject which requires research rather than rhetoric"

Did you notice that this sentence is, itself rhetoric, and that this letter contains not on bit of scientific data? And since when is fire considered weather? Those who adhere to the global warming religion believe that there was no "extreme weather" before 1980. I seem to remember Hurricane Agnes in 1972. That was rather extreme, And a tornado right here in north-central PA that hit my neighbors house in the 60s. History records some very severe storms, even hurricanes in the earliest times in this country. Those evil colonists, must have had coal fired power plants. If you want me to sign on to your climate change, you'd better do better than this. Maybe some data that wasn't made up just for the occasion.

Translation:

None of our climate models work, so we will tell everyone its too complicated to understand and they just have to trust us.

Al Gore = Joe Isuzu "Trust me!"

Wow Lawrence, I did not know that your global warming thing actually introduced society to hurricanes, tornado's, floods and wild fires.

Maybe if Al Gore kept his mouth shut we would have never heard of these words.

"Of course, "climate change" is a difficult, tricky scientific subject which requires research rather than rhetoric..."

Then why not provide some research instead of anecdotal instances of severe weather or address the manipulation of data at the University of East Anglia?

And I must have missed your letters bemoaning all the rhetoric about a sea level half-way up the Statue of Liberty, or how we'll all be cannibals by suppertime, or how the Earth is millions of degrees just below the surface, an on and on.
