It's almost Christmas here and its been raining. Usually at this time it'd be over a meter of snow. Only a few centimeters have fallen so far. It's definitely warm. Just wanted to say that. 

It's 73 degrees at 4:42 PM here in the Phoenix area.

Cali is burning to the ground. Also, they're experiencing bad wild fires.

The scientific community's consensus starts and stops at the fact that climate change is real and happening. Whether humans are a significant factor or not is highly debateable. Whether climate change is an issue to life or just to current models of human civilization is highly debateable.

 

And the excuse that any scientist not supporting the narrative of the climate change doomsday being "paid off" is ridiculous, half of them were on that conclussion long before corporations picked up the funding with their research. Climate change is highly politicized, and those that don't support the reported narrative are automatically demonized.

This is out right false, the scientific consensus has been human activity is the primary driver for global warming for at least 10 years. https://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/

longer, but they get your point.

 

 

I think for the most part its just stirring the pot, with that comes little knowledge of the problem and a biased stream of information they are receiveing so can't blame them.

 

On the Bill Maher show, he had on a politician who was a climate change deniar, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson, it was interesting to watch. Everyone knows that politician had his bank account fleeced with industry money. I like to hear arguments from people like Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, Pat Micheals, Ian Pilmer. For those last two, would love to see their bank account statements!

Depending on exactly how you measure the expert consensus, it’s somewhere between 90% and 100% that agree humans are responsible for climate change, with most of our studies finding 97% consensus among publishing climate scientists.

You are wrong there.

 

Do you have a Masters PHD in any scientific field?

Irrelevant. It's heavily debated in the scientific community.

Drak is wrong. Absolutely 100% wrong. The very.... very vast majority of scientists already know that the advancing climate change is happening BECAUSE of human interaction.

Under the correct conditions, it most certainly can.

And this is whats wrong with the world.  Something as simple as a fucking bush fire and we have arguments and grand conspiracies.

Sometimes I miss contractions like n't on the end of words like wouldn't, couldn't and shouldn't.    Please don't be a dick,  make allowances when reading my posts.

This happens every year with the drought, very dry land and Global Warming.

It does not take much to set off a fire, lightning, a spark from a quad or a dirt bike or other vehicle, a degenerate smoker causing arson, specifics on the last one only because its so avoidable!

 

I get the feeling from you that you believe that it is actually aliens doing this, or perhaps the government is doing it on purpose, maybe Alf came back from the 1990's to reek havoc on the TV stations, or E.T. phone home is unhappy with his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next to Trumps start, which I read that someone shitted on it yesterday. Classy I tell you, not.

As resident official tinfoil hat wearer, I feel obliged to say the following:

 

People said similar things to anyone claiming that the government was spying on everyone (or wanted to). And we know how that's turned out, don't we?

 

I won't speak as to the veracity of the video in the OP, I will only say that as a student of history, I think people need to be a little more distrusting of the government and the media (ALL media, fox, CNN, MSNBC, etc.) these days.

 

Last I checked, controlling what people think and believe was a multi-billion dollar industry that is currently propping up the entire internet and as a result, a not-insignificant portion of the global economy.

 

They call it "marketing"

While we are playing around with Global Warming conspiracy theories, has anyone read Michael Crichton's State of Fear? I don't agree with much of what he says about Global Warming but book is an interesting study how governments can influence people through FUD.

Global warming is pretty real. Here in NZ where there is little ozone to go around, its certainly cooking. Pretty rediculous summer last year, my home town reaching nearly 35 degrees, and the southernmost major city in NZ, Invercargill reaching a record - since records began - of 31 degrees. Thats a town that most days doesnt reach 20. Certainly was a heatwave to remember! Every so often on the news now its record warmest winter, record warmest summer. Used to snow in the winter here every year, now it's around one day per year - if that. Already cranking up the heat so far in the mid 20s.

This was no bush fire, but I get your point.

why do these conspiracy theory nutjobs all have the same voice?

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

I'm not sure what's worse between people who don't believe in global warming or those that do but don't do anything about it.

That's a good question. Then there is the question that accepts global warming is real but questions who or what is to blame.
