You are obviously one of the not too deeply informed either.
Please explain orbital changes? There are "cycles" that ocur over thousands of years but not changes that I'm aware of.... I believe Newton, Galileo, and Copernicus had something to say about that. You are obviously brimming with made up facts about how fast the oceans are heating up. One artical I read said the model need an additional 7 years to get a complete cycle. The models are continuoulsy changed to match the observations. The last I knew, Ice ages are triggered by geography. Of course, it's short sighted to blame this on a single factor. A bit of interesting reading. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/earth/cause-ice-age.html
There are more than 1100 ACTIVE volcanoes on this planet. All are emitting green house gasses. Mt. Pinatubo all by itself put more green house gasses and other pollutants into the atmosphere in that one day than man did in the previous 100 years. If you turn a blinde eye, the effects are small. There are points in time when trees were growing in the artic regions. No ice caps at all. How did this happen without humans?
The magnetic poles are moving. Is man causing this as well? Does this influence our weather?
NASA thinks we are absorbing an additional .58W /Sq. Meter due to an increase of 300ppM in CO2. The total is only about (something less than 400ppM). So, if we eliminate almost all the CO2 in the atmosphere we now have, we can reduce out energy imbalance by .58W /Sq. Meter. I believe that solar absorbtion ( the energy that hits the ground ) is over 1Kw/Sq. Meter. I suppose it all depends on where you measure it but NASA didn't make that distinction either. NASA is funded by an administration that currently has a green agenda. They also launched a space shuttle against the advice of engineers with intimate knowlege of the effect of freezing temperatures on the SRB's that resulted in the destruction of Challanger. As such you can't tell me they are not politically motivated in their decision making processes.
I have not yet read all your comments but I'm sure I will enjoy them. I could go on and on myself but what's the point?
Please forgive me if I don't jump on the "Humans are killing the planet" bandwagon. I remain skeptical. So do many "Real" scientists.
Wow, WhEEngineer! You finally got one right!! Well close... plants do absorb CO2! This absorption, through photosynthesis creates 'food' in the form of glucose. If it were up to people like you, we would have no more plants, other than ones that burn coal!
You got me, Non-mag...lol, but in my defense, the Harley gets 45 miles/gallon (I drive it to work everyday), and if they made an electric one I would have it (sorry, I'm just not a scooter guy). and my other vehicle, the Prius runs half on batteries. I use a minimum of half the gasoline as the average American, I heat and power my pool from the sun, and am working on a solar array for my house. As soon as it is large enough, an all electric car is next. I am not perfect, but at least I am not sitting idly by and denying common sense stuff. Action is difficult but necessary, all talk and no action is a waste of time. Nothing can be done or undone overnight. The point here is that we (as a society) need to stop fighting the battles for the wealthy, they don't need your help. Fight for yourself and your health, fight for mankind, fight for your children. My point is... Do Something.
I have spent thousands of hours reading papers and books from both sides over the past couple of decades. I have yet to find a single statement denying global warming that was actually true. Every single claim of the Denialists that is not an outright lie turns out to be based upon cherry picked data and dissolves when tested with a complete data set. The best proof is the total lack of non rebutted peer reviewed papers that present significant evidence against global warming.
Desmogblog.com Exposes the liers that lead the denier movement and explores their funding. They have found that 8 of these 16 supposedly expert scientists are paid by the fossil fuel industry to write propaganda.
You will always find some scientists who believe that the world is flat. An increasing percentage ( 90% of general scientists and 97% of climate scientists) have figured out that human caused global warming is real , dangerous to civilization and the economy, and that no viable alternative explanations exist.
Some cars are more reliable than others, but even the vehicles at the bottom of this year’s Consumer Reports reliability survey are vastly better than those of 20 years ago in the key areas of powertrain and hardware, experts said this week.
Many of the materials in this slideshow are resins or elastomers, plus reinforced materials, styrenics, and PLA masterbatches. Applications range from automotive and aerospace to industrial, consumer electronics and wearables, consumer goods, medical and healthcare, as well as sporting goods, and materials for protecting food and beverages.
While many larger companies are still reluctant to rely on wireless networks to transmit important information in industrial settings, there is an increasing acceptance rate of the newer, more robust wireless options that are now available.
