Global warming editorial

On the complaint from Sir David King, there was a quote by a contributor in the film that was wrong, which he had wrongly picked up from someone else and was quoting. It is, after all, businesses, local governments and NGOs that acted to push central governments into adopting the Paris Agreement.

Thus, we embarked on a personal quest for more information, armed with a strong academic background in postgraduate physics and a good understanding of the advanced mathematics necessary in such a pursuit.

Curiously enough, the UN IPCC reports don't even mention water vapor, since it is technically not a "gas" in the atmosphere. The global temperatures have been nominally flat for the past 8 years.

As an example, Enron, a traditional gas pipeline company with a large trading desk heavily lobbied the government for the EPA to regulate CO2: Spencer has one of the best comments we've read on this subject: Before the greater body of scientists out there start beating on us, we'll admit that very few physicists had a time slot to study organic chemistry and beyond in college - and the truth of the matter is, there aren't enough semester hours available for everyone to be cross-trained in other disciplines to any competent depth.

In the Committee's view Professor Wunsch made clear in his full unedited interview that he largely accepted this consensus and the seriousness of the threat of global warming albeit with caveats about proof and therefore found that the presentation of Professor Wunsch's views, within the wider context of the programme, resulted in unfairness to him.

Go and fuck yourself". In our original draft, we talked a bit about relative spacing geometry, to give the reader a feel for the distance between molecules in the atmosphere.

We'll try to reference most of the material, but if we miss a credit, or use a photograph someone didn't want to share with the world OK, we wonder why the photo was on the web if that were the case we'll quickly remove it with our apologies. Accuracy of representation of IPCC contributors.

As the radiation passes through, a portion of it is absorbed at particular narrow bandwidths often more than one so the end result are some "missing" sections of the whole spectrum coming from the source, which show up as dark lines. Lawson described the correlation between sunspots and temperature as "striking.

Without help developing countries usually do not have access to the advanced energy technologies like wind and solar that they require for development forcing them to rely on hydrocarbon energy sources like fossil fuels and biomass. There had to be an amplifier of some sort for the sun to be a primary driver of climate changes.

It introduces the principle that countries vulnerable to the effects of climate change may be financially compensated in future by countries that fail to curb their carbon emissions. The warm air around us is being kept warm partially from black body radiation coming from the earth itself.

While this does not 'prove' that global warming is not manmade, it shows that weather systems have by far the greatest control over the Earth's greenhouse effect, which is dominated by water vapor and clouds.

Past IPCC assessments reported that the global average sea level rose by some 19—21 cm 7. At last, we were not alone In reading "scientific articles" one must also be very alert to use of the word "if". Positive feedbacks increase the response of the climate system to an initial forcing, while negative feedbacks reduce it.

Since the start ofat least 15 countries have taken steps to phase out fossil-fuel subsidies. There is only "heat" and "lack of heat". Although researchers attempt to include as many processes as possible, simplifications of the actual climate system are inevitable because of the constraints of available computer power and limitations in knowledge of the climate system.

Historians ponder how the entire nation of Germany could possibly have goose-stepped into place in such a short time, and we have similar unrest. In fairness to the Addison Independent and its editors, our article was somewhat lengthy and technical, and presumably the average reader most likely could not follow or even be interested in an alternative viewpoint, since everyone knew by now that the global warming issue was "settled science".

The fellow who takes a daily temperature reading or measures the snow depth with a stick could call himself a "Climate Scientist" as much as the person tending the boiler in the basement could call himself a "Stationary Engineer".

Their July study, published in the peer-reviewed Occupational and Environment Medicine, found that global warming is likely to cause more deaths in summer because of higher temperatures, but not fewer deaths in milder winters. Some IR radiation escapes to space, but some is absorbed by the atmosphere's greenhouse gases especially water vapour, carbon dioxide, and methane and reradiated in all directions, some to space and some back toward the surface, where it further warms the surface and the lower atmosphere.

We need new leadership in Congress. According to the Environmental Defense Fund EDFa leading green group, 32 million acres of tropical rainforest were cut down each year between and —and the pace of deforestation is only increasing.

The Paris Agreement set the goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions being attained in the second half of this century.

Deforestation and Its Extreme Effect on Global Warming

India is next in the amount of coal it is burning and plans to increase their coal burning even though India is adding many nuclear power plants. Nuclear power does not produce greenhouse gases. Representative Tom Marino denies the irrefutable science behind climate change and has blocked policies that would have us join the rest of the world in acting on climate change.

Businesses and local governments should rack their brains to expand the base of decarbonization efforts. The reason that logging is so bad for the climate is that when trees are felled they release the carbon they are storing into the atmosphere, where it mingles with greenhouse gases from other sources and contributes to global warming accordingly.

And we need the political leadership and courage to make that happen. He is representing the fossil fuel interests rather than our interests. Print Aidan Gallagher, a U. The programme asserts that the current episode of global warming is nothing unusual and temperatures were even more extreme during the Medieval Warm Perioda time of great prosperity in western Europe.

Sep 14,  · Hurricane Florence is not the result of global warming. It's likely due to natural weather patterns, not climate change as some have already said. Global Warming Research. Learn about the causes and effects of global warming. Consider possible global warming solutions.

Global warming and a Penn State shoutout: Letters to the editor | Centre Daily Times

Read predictions of rising sea levels, coral reef bleaching and mass. No Need to Panic About Global Warming There's no compelling scientific argument for drastic action to 'decarbonize' the world's economy. The Medieval Warm Period, of which the proponents of Anthropogenic Global Warming don't want you to be aware, was a period in which agriculture flourished, helping Europe emerge from the Dark Ages.

The complex politics of global warming results from numerous cofactors arising from the global economy's interdependence on carbon dioxide (CO 2) emitting hydrocarbon energy sources and because CO 2 is directly implicated in global warming —making global warming a.
