    Bill Nye you A) Don’t make a good argument B) Can’t support any claim you make with fact C) 31K scientists agree that the SCIENCE doesn’t support any human impact on climate. http://www.petitionproject.org/

  • Grimm Bastard

    Bill’s belief that the overwhelming evidence for “climate change” is based on a falsified “consensus” from John Cook’s group which got busted during a forum hack. They were exposed for not being able to find anything that supports “climate change” and instead resulted into creating a document claiming that 97% of “scientists” for the purposes of creating a perception.

  • thinkwell

    I worked with Bill Nye before he became the science guy. He was a competent mechanical engineer and a very funny guy, a natural crack-up who made work fun. He most certainly understands the scientific method, but he is way off base in claiming that climate change is caused by man. He has apparently spent far too much time in La-La land.

  • nomoredoublespeak

    Tucker brilliantly discredited this guy simply by asking straight questions that Nye could not answer scientifically.
    And what was up with Nye’s bizarre and unsolicited comments about leaks from DC at the end?! The guy is clearly not qualified to speak from any position of authority on climate matters so he veers off into liberal talking points?! Puh-leeze!

  • pcm

    The fact that Bill Nye once advocated the imprisonment of climate deniers makes him a dangerous fanatic as spokesperson. And I hardly believe ‘The Science Guy’ would tell other actual climate scientists whose decades-long studies disagree with the climate change zealots that they should be imprisoned. If anyone hasn’t seen the YouTube video “The Great Global Warming Hoax” I recommend it. It’s an older video, but makes clear factual sense. The scientists in that video pretty much trashed the IPCC back then, as they deserved.

  • USAPatriotSC

    This is the entire conversation in 3 sentences.

    TC: What are the facts in the science?
    BN: I don’t know.

  • waxliberty

    The modern spectacle – shouting TV tabloid host pretends to want scientific evidence summarized in seconds, shouts at guest, creates “uncertainty” theater.

    In general you can see the shape of what climate was doing in global multi-proxy reconstructions: we had a long slow cooling before modern warming kicked in, pretty much lockstep with greenhouse gas increases, right alongside the development of human civilization (land clearing & greenhouse gases).
    http://www.countercurrents.org/Marcott_PAGES2k.png

    We’ve been pretending to be “just asking questions” for three decades now while the warming piles up, and now we lost a quarter of the Great Barrier Reef in a single season to ocean heating and thermal stress, with oceans only getting relentlessly warmer. The physical processes are pretty well understood, and they don’t turn on a dime, they turn more like the Titanic. Please try to be open to the possibility that what *is* known is more than enough to be concerned about, even when interesting questions still have different degrees of uncertainty.

    Every national academy of science in the world endorses the mainstream view in science and physics, as taught in introductory textbooks. As the American Geophysical Union puts it: “While important scientific uncertainties remain as to which particular impacts will be experienced where, no uncertainties are known that could make the impacts of climate change inconsequential”

  • Gail

    Why is it necessary for NOAA fudge temperature data that was then presented to the Paris Summit as fact? This isn’t the only time data has been tampered with or misrepresented, is it. It’s all about money, unfortunately.

  • waxliberty

    A number of things have been severely exaggerated to make that story. For one thing, the NOAA data set was not particularly critical to Paris, it is one of a number of data sets and the changes were not that big.

    All global temp data sets get regular updates. This particular update was because of a fairly straightforward weighting bias as they added more buoys to the program over time. They explained in advance that they would need to do this way back in 2008. The resulting change was tested against related data sets like the measurements of the ARGO buoy array as well as some satellite measurements, which demonstrated that the updated NOAA data appeared to be much more consistent with other measurements than it had been, consistent with fixing the bias that had been introduced by increasing buoys.

    Basically, not fixing the data would have meant using known bad data.

    “Happening at an extraordinary rate…..” Can anyone tell me exactly which islands have been inundated? And for those on the East Coast of the US, why they are still doing beach replenishment projects on barrier islands? Why are we not condemning the million dollar mansions on the beach if they will really be under water in the near future?

    Cyclical weather patterns are a hallmark of this planet. We all know it and the real science bears out that narrative.

  • teppo

    Last ice-age wasn´t 10´s of thousands years ago, but ended little over 10000 years ago. This current warming trend started in 17th century, undulating upwards at roughly same rate as it is now, without there having been significant human output of emissions that are claimed to cause this warming until late 19th century. One thousand years ago temperature was roughly same as now, as Vikings were able to harvest barley in Greenland. It has been too cold for agriculture there until recently.
    What doesn´t get mentioned is that interglacials have occurred roughly at an interval of 100000 years, at peak temperatures couple of degrees C higher than we are experiencing currently.

    Watched this segment on the Carlson show. Nye kept squirming throughout the whole thing. Never did answer Tucker’s questions, with anything valid nor scientific, just kept alluding to the scary leftist BS spouted by some of the left supported “scientists”, as it being “settled”.
    Nye appeared more as a clown than a credible science guy. Fun watch.

    Except the overwhelming evidence there is NO climate change created by man. Yes, there are cyclical changes, ya know the ones that have been taking place since man inhabited the earth. Overwhelming evidence this is a complete and utter hoax.

    when did the last ice age end?
    end of argument. bill is wrong :p

  • Quantummist

    Give you a better example… In Darwin’s logs of his expedition on the Beagle in 1834 he wrote of visiting the islands of the Galapagos, Tahiti, Falkland and many other islands… some just a couple of feet above high tide lines at their highest points… Today you can take a cruse and retrace his trip and step foot on every tiny island he notes in his book.. Most have plaques and signage telling of his visits and there is not a single tiny speck of land he stood on in his book that you cannot stand on today…

  • Truthsayer

    Well done. Thanks for that example.

  • Badenuff

    Hypothesis: Follow the polar caps of Mars. If the delta is different than those of Earth, man is affecting the climate.

  • nworder

    Allegedly 1 cent degree rise in 100 years – how do you measure that miniscule increase using 100 year old thermometers with new methods like satellite recordings . How do you measure the temp of all the sea waters in the world , the land down to a depth and up to the mountains and the air up to 60.000 feet . It is fake pretended accuracy – you would need a trillion x trillion thermometers.

    The only main input is the sun and the main warmer/ cooler is water vapour ie clouds .

    BUT the temp is NOT rising and the ice is NOT melting and the Romans grew grapes in Britain 1600 years ago .
    There were warm periods and cold periods like when the Thames froze every year and you could barbecue a pig on the ice .

    The Vikings grew grains on Greenland 1500 years ago and had to leave because of the cold and invade other countries.

    Camel bones have been dug up in the arctic together with other tropical animals remains.

    The only thing rising is Al Gore’s et al’s bank accounts and Nye’s as he was bought out a long time ago. Pity his bow tie
    does not light up when he tells pork pies .

  • Carter_Burger67

    Tucker tees off on guys like this every, freakin’ night. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel.

  • Oak Tree Lady

    What I got out of this – Bill Nye is a bully who thinks the climate would not have changed since before the revolution if not for us and Carlson Tucker is the master of the quizzical expression.

  • Gail

    Other reports of manipulating data have been reported in past years as in the “hockey stick” graph that was later found to be fraudulent and other examples. As I stated, money and greed seem to be the basis for the global warming/climate change phenomena. Al Gore and his papal dispensation-like carbon credits sham are an example.

  • waxliberty

    The ‘hockey stick’ graph being found to be fraudulent is also not true – eight separate committees investigated the allegations and published reports, finding no evidence of fraud or scientific misconduct. Here is a fact check article:

    http://www.factcheck.org/2009/12/climategate/

    The science behind the greenhouse effect and climate change is two centuries old – the greenhouse effect first (roughly) postulated by the famous scientist and mathematician Joseph Fourier in 1827. The basis for global warming/climate change is absolutely physics (our understanding of physical science), not money. This is why literally every national academy of science and every other scientific agency and association you could hope to consult endorse the opinions you hear from mainstream scientists.

    Carbon credits are definitely a fuzzier concept at best, and quite susceptible to scam (scam operations have been prosecuted, if I recall – not performing the carbon offsetting action that people pay for.) Often the idea is to plant trees or do something that has a net effect of slightly reducing carbon in the atmosphere, but the best response to the problem is to reduce carbon pollution in the first place.

  • Azsteve53

    Nye has decided politics and science are one in the same, and his politics is settled science no matter the facts to the contrary. Nye is a useful idiot for the cause, not just for climate change but also for other religious issues. Nye is using science as his armor, and in reality Nye is the emperor with no clothes

  • Azsteve53

    YOU cannot accurately measure the temperature change due to the technology of the thermometers, what one can see happening is that data is being falsified to support a conclusion someone started with and will do anything legal or illegal r=to convince sheeple to support it.

  • mark carpenter

    Useful idiot – you hit the Alinsky nail on the head.

  • mark carpenter

    Tucker should’ve asked him why the scientific community had us headed into an ice age back in the 1980’s when air pollution/CO2 was much worse than it is today. https://www.epa.gov/air-trends/air-quality-national-summary (Hopefully these numbers aren’t fudged, but who knows) He also should’ve asked him why some climate scientists today are saying that we’re headed into another ice age in the next ten years due to decreased solar activity – not CO2 levels. This whole climate thing IS NOT settled – especially with all the number fudging these climate alarmist scientists are pulling to keep their billions of dollars for their research/propaganda rolling in. Seems like every few months or so, we read another story about a climate scientist whistle blower who pulls the curtain back on what’s become the biggest scam in the history of the world. By the way, that’s all the grant money/funding is for these days climate-wise. If you want to research anything about global cooling or something other than global warming – forget it, no money for you. That is NOT how science is supposed to work, but when you’re trying to keep the government grants flowing and fleece the world with your carbon tax credit b.s. and redistribution of wealth – who cares? Remember this one Bill? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EeBeq0i03bg The problem here Bill, is we the consumers are forced to pay more for these “environmentally/politically correct” items that often times don’t work too well (“low flow” toilets) and cost many times more than what we’d ever see in carbon tax credits.
    One last question from Tucker: hey Bill, explain to me how that stone age settlement ended-up under what became the English Channel thousands of years ago when the Ice Age ended – was that due to man-made global warming too?

  • mark carpenter

    That’s not what the whistle blower from NOAA said – do your homework.

  • mark carpenter

    Yes it is a spectacle, Bill Nye helping carry the water for those running the world’s biggest scam.Your little “proxy” picture graph is nice – only problem is, satellite imagery has shown the earth in a cooling trend for at least the last 18+ years.

    The hockey stick was pure fraud – CO2 will make more vegetation grow – it is a self balancing cycle .
    Termites give out more CO2 than all of human activity – google ” I LOVE CO2 ” website

  • waxliberty

    “The hockey stick was pure fraud”

    As discussed above, this is a heavily-repeated urban legend. The general shape found in the MBH98 hockey stick has been broadly reproduced by other reconstructions using different proxies, which is the final answer on questions of ‘fraud’ in scientific method and logical reasoning.

    “CO2 will make more vegetation grow”

    It can have a positive effect but total vegetation impact is complex, and in general other climate change impact tends to overshadow, e.g. from the IPCC working group II survey of all research on crop impacts: “Based on many studies covering a wide range of regions and crops, negative impacts of climate change on crop yields have been more common than positive impacts (high confidence)”. Typical paper:

    Lobell et al, “Climate Trends and Global Crop Production Since 1980”
    “Models that link yields of the four largest commodity crops to weather indicate that global maize and wheat production declined by 3.8 and 5.5%, respectively, relative to a counterfactual without climate trends.”
    http://science.sciencemag.org/content/333/6042/616

    “it is a self balancing cycle”

    Absolutely untrue – the paleoclimate record (including ‘ice age’ cycles) shows strongly that the climate tends to ‘drift’ quite far into new states when pushed by changes to incoming or outgoing energy.

    “The paleoclimate record shouts out to us that, far from being self-stabilizing, the Earth’s climate system is an ornery beast which overreacts even to small nudges,” climate scientist Wallace Broecker, in 1995.

    “Termites give out more CO2 than all of human activity”

    I believe this is untrue, this paper shows ~3.5 Gt/year emissions from termites, compared to emissions in the 26 Gt/year range for humans.

    http://www.bgc-jena.mpg.de/bgc-systems/pmwiki2/uploads/Site/sanderson_1997.pdf

    In any case termites are part of the natural process of plant matter decomposition, which is part of the normal global carbon cycle. It’s true human emissions are only ~4% of annual *total* natural emissions, but the emissions and absorption of the natural cycle had found a general balance and human emissions piled on top, causing a 40% global increase in CO2 concentration (validated by many lines of evidence including isotope analysis – this is also not a controversial result in science.)

    It is a fairly common sense thing as well – notice that global increase in CO2 happened exactly in lockstep with human civilization’s increase in CO2 emissions.

    http://www.skepticalscience.com/images/CO2-Emissions-vs-Levels.gif

    “google ” I LOVE CO2 ” website”

    There are many, many pseudo-scientific web sites claiming that mainstream science as taught in textbooks is a hoax, using reasonable *sounding* arguments. Just as there are many web sites documenting that 9/11 was an inside job, that the moon landing was faked, and so on. It’s great to explore the internet, but necessary to do so with a skeptical mindset.

  • waxliberty

    “satellite imagery has shown the earth has not been in a warming trend for the last 19+ years”

    This is a long-debunked argument; the RSS data set of troposphere temperature that showed flatter warming in this period was known to be suffering from an orbital decay problem (it was measuring temperature at a drifting time of day, giving spurious cooling results). Sites dedicated to rejecting global warming took advantage of this, but there are many, many ways to show that warming has not stopped (including environmental response such as mass coral mortality due to thermal stress, continuing sea level rise which is mostly thermal expansion, etc.)

    The RSS problem is described in this paper from the RSS team:
    http://www.remss.com/blog/RSS-TMT-updated

    You can see the increasing cool bias relative to in situ radiosonde (weather balloon) measurements in charts like this:
    https://tamino.files.wordpress.com/2016/04/diff.jpeg

    The updated v4 total troposphere measurement shows more consistent warming over the past two decades in the troposphere:
    https://tamino.files.wordpress.com/2016/11/rsstttv41.jpg

    But more telling for total global warming is to simply look at the massive increase in ocean heat, which is where most of the heat trapped by the greenhouse effect goes. This is measured by the newer global ARGO array of diving buoys.

    https://www.nodc.noaa.gov/OC5/3M_HEAT_CONTENT/heat_content2000m.png

    Full NOAA page here:
    https://www.nodc.noaa.gov/OC5/3M_HEAT_CONTENT/

    The polar bear argument is also mostly noise – old counts of polar bear population are not reliable, so claims of increases in population are not generally supportable.

    In general, be skeptical of science articles presented in political publications that have a strong ideological point of view.

    Polar bears are not generally one of the most concerning wildlife threats relative to human welfare, although they are obviously losing their habitat rapidly. We lost a full quarter of the Great Barrier Reef in a single season last year due to ocean warming. Coral reefs are a cornerstone of ocean food sources and given current projections of ocean warming they are not long for the planet.

    The Daily Mail is a tabloid, and this story has been thoroughly debunked.

    Funding is not the question. The science behind global warming is global, cross discipline, and 200 years old.

    “Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time. It is now more certain than ever, based on many lines of evidence, that humans are changing Earth’s climate. The evidence is clear.

    THE ACCURACY OF THE UNDERLYING DATA MAKES THE WHOLE THING FAKE SCIENCE ANYWAY – 1 degree cent IN 100 YEARS IS PRETENDED ACCURACY DUE TO THE MEASUREMENT PROBLEM.
    If this data was real there should be bigger variations from the only input – ITS THE SUN STUPID !

    The data shows no increase in temperature which is what it is all about so they had to fake it and the highest they fakers could get was only 1 degree centigrade .

    Plus there is no evidence that CO2 is a greenhouse gas and also no evidence that humans produce most of it.

    Termites and volcanoes produce more CO2 – extinct volcanoes pour out CO2 for hundreds of miles around
    as do underwater volcanoes .

    You are talking about ‘Goddard’? He’s not a scientist, he’s a popular conspiracy theorist online. His main gig is to claim that nefarious forces are “adjusting” the temperature data. I’ve asked him directly to explain why, if this is true, that the global *net* effect of homogenization of temp data is to *decrease* the amount of observed global warming over the last century. He appears to know this is true but generally evades and tries to misdirect to other topics. The reality of net adjustments does not help his conspiracy theory, and advancing the conspiracy theory is his entire online career at this point.

    Your theory is trivial to falsify. The US National Academy of Sciences was founded by Lincoln in 1863 to advise on critical scientific questions relevant to policy. Members are elected in recognition of distinguished and continuing achievements in original research, still considered one of the highest honors in science. See Chapter 1503 of Title 36 of the United States Code – NAS is non-governmental and funding is guaranteed / not subject to politics. The fact that NAS (and every other national academy of science in the world) strongly endorses the major findings of climate science immediately falsifies your “funding” theory.

    You are embarrassingly citing a famous photoshop hoax of a Time magazine cover.

    Sorry, a TIME Magazine Cover Did Not Predict a Coming Ice Age
    http://science.time.com/2013/06/06/sorry-a-time-magazine-cover-did-not-predict-a-coming-ice-age/

    In terms of the common urban legend about a supposed scientific consensus around cooling in the early 70s, that’s an urban legend – there was no such consensus or scientific predictions, at all.

    Some scientists did raise concerns about cooling in the early 70s, because of a real effect – anthropogenic aerosol cooling. Which is still the #2 forcing on climate, but even in the 70s the emerging consensus was that greenhouse warming would dominate, as Hansen’s accurate predictions in 1981 claimed.

    In the U.S., the main authority for policy is the National Academy of Sciences. They didn’t endorse global cooling, at all – quite a contrast with their strong endorsement of global warming in subsequent decades.

    “So they picked the greedy AL Gore to start the lie scam”

    But a surface temp is not even a part of the story – its the “volume” of heat that counts and the only medium that has enormous calorific value is the sea – the surface of the earth will come well after the atmosphere and well behind the sea and the ice at the poles – so we cant just measure the surface which is very thin and is about cloud cover.
    Anyway I dont trust any figure from the GW scientists – they are involved in a scam and they have sniffed money.

    The poles have got bigger and we wont see camels in the arctic for a while .

    The thermometers in 1880 no matter how good cannot compare with todays technology ie you are not comparing like with like .

    For me in my little part of the world I would say everything is more stable than when I was a boy – so the climate seems to be more stable and the seasons are the same give or take “weather”

    Nasa are deep state freaks – dont listen to them – they are CIA – they have an agenda

    There has been no temp increase to melt any ice – there was less pole ice a few hundred years ago
    Three ww2 planes were 260 feet down at 60 years after the war in Greenland – they thought rings were annual layers

    Editor’s note: Antarctica and the Arctic are two very different environments: the former is a continent surrounded by ocean, the latter is ocean enclosed by land. As a result, sea ice behaves very differently in the two regions. While the Antarctic sea ice yearly wintertime maximum extent hit record highs from 2012 to 2014 before returning to average levels in 2015, both the Arctic wintertime maximum and its summer minimum extent have been in a sharp decline for the past decades. Studies show that globally, the decreases in Arctic sea ice far exceed the increases in Antarctic sea ice.

  • waxliberty

    You look at changes to outgoing and downwelling infrared matching predictions of atmospheric physics. You monitor incoming solar radiation. You apply the first law of thermodynamics. You measure with thermometers and see warming as predicted, for decades – on the surface, and to ocean depths of 2,000m, making it clear no internal ocean cycle-driven rearranging of heat can possibly be responsible for the change. You measure sea level rise, due partly to thermal expansion and partly to increasing polar ice melt. You observe many other lines of evidence, all corroborating the same climate change – for example, losing a full quarter of the Great Barrier Reef in a single season to global coral bleaching from thermal stress in warming oceans.

    If that’s all too much, you look at summary attribution studies showing >95% that >80% chance of observed warming is anthropogenic. Or, if you are wise, you simply listen to literally every national academy of science (composed of top scientists elected for distinguished and continuing achievements in original research) in every major nation, every professional association of physical scientists (geophysicists, physicists, geologists, oceanographers, chemists, statisticians, biologists etc.), and every national science agency (space, oceanic, meteorological agencies etc.) in the world, who universally support the mainstream understanding of earth’s climate and energy budget including high-impact anthropogenic global warming.

    Solar variability has played a role in past climate changes. However, multiple lines of evidence show that current rate of warming cannot be explained by changes in energy from the sun.

    Many factors affect the planet’s temperature including intensity of the sun, changes in earth’s orbit, quantity of greenhouse gases, CO2 content of the oceans, ocean currents, land cover, and their complex interactions. Human activity including the burning of fossil fuels has increased the quantity of greenhouse gases significantly over the past century.

    The scientific evidence for human-caused warming of the planet’s climate system is unequivocal. Why not educate yourself about the science, evidence and implications of climate change:

    Trillions have been wasted on this scam – the poor of the world are starving due to forests being cut down to grow grains for vegetable diesel oil that they could have eaten – even though there is tons of oil in the ground .

    This crazy policy actually puts more CO2 in the air since the forests are being cut down and the vegetable diesel oil still puts out CO2 – it also increase food prices . Whoever thought up this ” remedy” should never be allowed to practice science again.

  • Ian5

    “So since it (the whole scam ) is all based on the temp”

    “What do you think the temp increase was .?”

    >> It’s not what I think or believe. It’s what the accepted data indicates. I’m not doing your homework for you: https://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/graphs/

    “CO2 was much higher in the past – so where did it go and why are we still here”

    >> Current CO2 levels are over 400ppm – a level that hasn’t been experienced on earth for hundreds of thousands of years. The planet’s climate was clearly much different then. A key difference between then and now is the rate of change in CO2 and temperature. The changes occurred over thousands and thousands of years whereas at present, the impact of human-caused GHGs are creating significant change in the order of decades and centuries.

  • nworder

    YOU WILL KNOW THE MISSING EVIDENCE ALREADY – since you are a troll

    NATURAL NEWS :-
    Al Gore’s dire predictions of the melting of polar ice on a massive scale have proved to be completely false. In fact, in 2014 – a year that was touted as being “the hottest ever” in the Earth’s history – there were record amounts of ice reported in Antarctica, an increase in Arctic ice, and record snowfalls across the globe.

    Debunking the “97 percent” lie
    On top of those “inconvenient truths,” the White House’s assertion that 97 percent of scientists agree that global warming is real has been completely debunked. Several independently-researched examinations of the literature used to support the “97 percent” statement found that the conclusions were cherry-picked and misleading.

    More objective surveys have revealed that there is a far greater diversity of opinion among scientists than the global warming crowd would like for you to believe.

    From the National Review:

    “A 2008 survey by two German scientists, Dennis Bray and Hans von Storch, found that a significant number of scientists were skeptical of the ability of existing global climate models to accurately predict global temperatures, precipitation, sea-level changes, or extreme weather events even over a decade; they were far more skeptical as the time horizon increased.”

    Other mainstream news sources besides the National Review have also been courageous enough to speak out against the global warming propaganda – even the Wall Street Journal published an op-ed piece in 2015 challenging the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) pseudoscience being promulgated by global warming proponents.

    And, of course, there are the more than 31,000 American scientists (to date) who have signed a petition challenging the climate change narrative and 9,029 of them hold PhDs in their respective fields. But hey, Al Gore and his cronies have also ignored that inconvenient truth, as well.

    Many of those scientists who signed the petition were likely encouraged to speak out in favor of the truth after retired senior NASA atmospheric scientist John L. Casey revealed that solar cycles are largely responsible for warming periods on Earth – not human activity.

    Al Gore and cronies continue getting richer from the global warming hoax
    But the global warming crowd continues to push their agenda on the public while lining their pockets in the process. If you’re still inclined to believe what Al Gore has to say about global warming, please consider the fact that since he embarked on his crusade, his wealth has grown from $2 million in 2001 to $100 million in 2016 – largely due to investments in fake “green tech” companies and the effective embezzlement of numerous grants and loans.

    SORRY PAL IT IS BASED ON THE AVERAGE TEMP OF THE EARTH SEA AND SKY – is there evidence that the temp is rising – NO ! Its called a thermometer . It only the sun that counts – dust and water vapour
    CO2 IS ONE MOLECULE IN 2500 MOLECULES OF AIR – and they dont even know if CO2 is a warmer or a cooler.

    So where did the CO2 go to if it was much higher in the past – soda pop – lol

    Human input is minuscule compared to one class of insects – termites – so what about counting the rest of the insects
    – how do you get rid of termites – you all need to take a module on logic –

    All misinformed rubbish:

    Natural News is a known rubbish site and not a source of peer-reviewed science. Junk.

    National Review and Wall Street Journal are media sources – neither of them even has a science reporter.

    The Oregon Petition Project (31,000 American scientists, etc) has been thoroughly debunked. Go look it up.

    John L. Casey hasn’t published a single peer-reviewed article on climate science. His extreme views are not supported by the evidence and published climate research.

    Al Gore’s wealth went up so climate change must be a hoax is a ridiculous argument. Al Gore’s wealth has no impact on climate science anymore than its impact on gravity. If his wealth decreased, the planet and scientific principles wouldn’t care either.

    “CO2 IS ONE MOLECULE IN 2500 MOLECULES OF AIR – and they dont even know if CO2 is a warmer or a cooler.”

    >> What is your point? One molecule of chlorine gas in 25000 molecules of air causes toxic pneumonitis. So what?

    “So where did the CO2 go to if it was much higher in the past – soda pop – lol”

    >> Carbon cycle. Human input is not “miniscule” and the effect is cumulative over time. Inform yourself: http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/CarbonCycle/

    Preferring the industry-funded Heartland Institute’s NIPCC ‘alternative science’ crackpots to the National Academy of Sciences and all other conventional scientific organizations.

    It’s human nature to be gullible, so no judgement. Not everyone’s educational training, discernment, or even IQ are the same. It’s a grand tragedy unfolding at global scale.

    These same ‘alternative’ experts predicted solar-driven global cooling (in contradiction to obvious, basic understanding of radiative physics and conservation of energy) starting ten years ago – and indeed we saw steep solar minimums as real solar scientists expected, but what happened in the climate system? Another decade of aggressive warming, now widespread mass mortality of coral reef from thermal stress, a process that is unlikely to be stopped at this point (reefs not likely to make it). Watch the next few years, see if your crackpots’ predictions of solar cooling finally shows up. They won’t, and that won’t convince you, but watch a few more years after that.

    Imagine a decade from now, and the result the same – measurements show another decade of warming, more environmental destruction, a few crackpots still claiming it hasn’t warmed, or that it will cool Any Day Now. Scientists politely saying they are still crackpots. Ask yourself why your opinion won’t have changed, in the same way the last decade didn’t change it. Ask yourself if it is even possible that you can be convinced of basic scientific facts. What answer do you tell yourself?

    “THE EVIDENCE = NO TEMP INCREASE – so thats the end of the story”

    >> Misinformation. The evidence is unequivocal. You cannot refute it:

    You are mixing up weather with climate, a typical strategy used by contrarians to intentionally confuse readers. They are not the same thing.

    Now, how did I know you were gonna dismiss my links? And you accuse me of needing to be educated. Bye Felicia

  • nworder

    BUT TOXIC PNEUMONITUS IS NOT GLOBAL WARMING – LOL This is science to you ???

    BUT it cant be cumulative over time or it would not have dropped from its past high point .

    Human output of CO2 is minuscule compared even to termites ONLY ONE insect .

    You are either a troll or brain washed and unable to think independently .

  • nworder

    IT WILL BE GROWING AND MELTING GROWING AND MELTING GROWING A LITTLE AND MELTING A LITTLE
    AD INFINITUM – AND THE GW MONGERS WILL BE SAD AND HAPPY SAD AND HAPPY SAD AND HAPPY FOREVER AND EVER .
    And ice has been breaking off since the beginning as you would expect .

  • waxliberty

    Sounds like you’re trying to convince yourself I dismissed out of hand, when of course I discussed one of their standout claims (solar cooling) and pointed to the long history of failed predictions by these groups.

    It’s not that your fringe sources are not read, Carter, it’s that they’re wrong – can be reproducibly shown to be wrong.

    Yes, run along, quickly. Think about that last paragraph I wrote though.

    (Trivial for example to highlight actual published research on solar role in climate relative to such claims from ‘Heartland Institute science’:)

    Jones et al 2011, “What influence will future solar activity changes over the 21st century have on projected global near-surface temperature changes?”
    “Even in the event of the Sun entering a new Maunder Minimum like activity state the climate response is very small compared to the projected warming due to anthropogenic influences”
    http://www.leif.org/EOS/2011JD017013.pdf

    Gray et al 2009, “Solar Influences on Climate”
    “Despite these uncertainties in solar radiative forcing, they are nevertheless much smaller than the estimated radiative forcing due to anthropogenic changes, and the predicted SC‐related surface temperature change is small relative to anthropogenic changes.”
    http://solar-center.stanford.edu/sun-on-earth/2009RG000282.pdf

    Turns out physics doesn’t agree that “everyone is entitled to their own opinion”.

  • nworder

    THE biggest problem for the warmists is that there is NO warming and they cant get face up to this ONE fact .

    LOL

  • waxliberty
  • Ian5

    nworder is also a hardcore anti-vaxxer and all-round conspiracy theorist.

  • TreeParty

    “True Pundit” is a lying crock of spit fake news site. I suggest that those of us who understand what is actually happening in the world IGNORE this site and do not feed the trolls who gather here. Remember that when you wrestle with a pig, you both get muddy, but the pig enjoys it. People like nworder cannot be convinced of actual fact by electroshock; it is a waste of time to try to talk sense to them.

  • Ian5

    Not true, you are misinformed. The data show a clear warming trend:
    https://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/graphs/

  • nworder

    ANSWER ME DIRECTLY – and stop posting fake GW psyop websites – can you use your brain – probably not that’s why you had to become a troll

  • nworder

    THE data shows after much manipulation a minute increase of ONE DEGREE OVER 100 YEARS !
    This is .01 degrees per year – lol
    There is no equipment that can measure the temp of the earth sea and sky to this level of accuracy and certainly not
    100 years ago .

    In fact the increase is so small that we know its faked since we would expect bigger variations . So it was probably
    a drop.
    Can you not tell the difference between power politics and science ?

    Even if CO2 was a greenhouse gas (its not) 1 molecule of CO2 in 2500 of air has no effect whatever compared with clouds and dust – oh and TERMITES – lol

  • nworder

    How much do you get from that post – tea party troll – $1.25 – lol You will not make Al Gore type wealth
    just a few dollars supporting him – go get a proper job and wake up feeling honest .

  • nworder

    AND YOU are a hardcore pro vaxxine and global warming troll who will troll any subject for a few dollars since
    you are unable to get proper honest employment and use a fake picture . Get back to your basement.
    You are acting in a troll tag team and should be blocked

  • nworder

    OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE FOR THE EARTH BEING ROUND – You daft troll !

    Now answer a simple question for ALL to see. After your many years of studying fake science

    How much do you think the temp has gone up in a 100 years – no fake websites please

    AND if CO2 was very much higher than the past – WHERE DID IT GO ????

  • Ian5

    I’m not going to do your homework for you. You haven’t answered my questions either. Go to your local library and read up on the carbon cycle. Then come back and tell us what you learned.

  • Ian5

    You didn’t address the conspiracy theorist comment. Your fringe views are diametrically opposed to the positions of virtually every reputable scientific academy the world over. Regarding the science and efficacy of vaccines, here is a good article for you:

  • nworder

    So 100 years ago they measured the temp of the earth sea and sky with a few old shiny brass thermometers and the
    planet’s temp went up by .01 degree .
    BUT how would they measure the sky without satellites and planes ?

    How would they measure the temp of all the seas and oceans in the world from surface to sea bed ??????

    Lol – you must be on something strong or lots of dollars are flowing your way .

  • nworder

    THIS record maximum was 2014 not decades ago ??
    Will you put in an order for some unpolluted antarctic ice – 2 gallons delivered to your door for $9.99 plus $2000.99 for post and package .

  • nworder

    WEATHER = CLIMATE CLIMATE = WEATHER lol Kafkaesque !

    There was NO global warming so you scam merchants had to adopt climate change
    since you knew the climate always changed – – you are collecting cash though – you should get a proper
    job since you lies will spill over into your private life and you wont be able to stop – going mad over time

    You cannot lie for a long time without going bonkers

    YOU HAVE UPTICKED YOURSELF WITH YOUR OTHER TROLL IDENTITIES .
    ANSWER ZE QUESTION – WHAT HAS THE TEMP GONE UP BY IN THE LAST 100 YEARS
    – HOW DID YOU MANAGE TO MEASURE IT 100 YEARS AGO

    I started to read your boring GW propaganda then could not stop yawning at your utter trolling garbage
    so stopped reading

  • nworder

    AL GORE IS THE CHOSEN LEADER OF CLIMATE AND CO2 RACKETEERING –. NOTHING OF WHAT HE SAID HAS COME TRUE.
    They can make the figures do anything by choping off or adding bits to the data as having been proven.

    Natural news was just reporting – its a great site – you can only get a job as a troll – do you tell people and your family
    that you are doing research -lol

    WHAT DO YOU THINK THE TEMP HAS GONE UP BY IN 100 YEARS

    HOW WAS THE TEMP MEASURED 100 YEARS AGO

    WHERE DID THE CO2 GO TO WHEN IT WAS MUCH HIGHER IN THE PAST

    NO WEBSITES AND STRAIGHT ANSWERS

  • nworder

    TROLL CHAFF – USUAL DIRT SPREADING
    THIS TIME ANSWER YOURSELF – STOP HIDING BEHIND WEBSITES FAKING DATA

    IAN – WHAT DO YOU THINK THE TEMP HAS RISEN BY IN 100 YEARS
    IAN – HOW WOULD YOU MEASURE THE TEMP OF THE EARTH , SEA AND SKY 100 YEARS AGO
    IAN – CO2 WAS MUCH HIGHER IN THE PAST – WHERE DID IT GO TO – LOL

    NO HIDING BEHIND WEBSITES

  • nworder

    YOU HAVE NOT ASKED QUESTIONS – JUST POSTED WEBSITES

    WHAT DO YOU THINK THE TEMP OF THE WORLD HAS RISEN BY IN THE LAST 100 YEARS

    SINCE THERE WAS MORE CO2 IN THE PAST – MUCH MORE – WHERE DID IT ALL GO TO

    HOW COULD THE TEMP OF THE WHOLE EARTH SEA AND SKY BE MEASURED ACCURATELY
    100 YEARS AGO

  • nworder

    THE PROBLEM YOU HAVE GOT IS EVEN IF A MILLION SCIENTIST GENERATE A MILLION COMPUTER MODELS
    IF THE TEMP IS NOT GOING UP So I suggest you move on and get a proper job . I could not do your job – telling lies over and over – living a lie like Bill Nye . God hates all liars

  • Daniel Lang

    Where do you get the idea the earth is not getting warmer? Evidence please

  • Daniel Lang

    Would you be demanding these higher standards of evidence if all the best data showed cooling instead of the warming it does now?

  • nworder

    ITS THE TEMP ! SO IF A GROUP OF SCIENTIFIC PROSTITUTES SAY THE TEMP IS FALLING OR RISING THEN YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW THEY MEASURED IT – DP YOU NOT – Phew !

  • nworder

    WAIT A MINUTE – ( you new troll identity for Ian ) – YOU say the earth is getting warmer by .01 degrees per year.

    So the onus is on YOU to prove it . Its YOUR hypothesis now YOU prove it.

    “THE TEMP IS NOT GOING UP”

    >> The average global temperature has indeed been rising. You have been unable to refute it: https://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/graphs/

    “telling lies over and over”

    >> Ridiculous fluff. My position is consistent with the positions of NOAA, NASA, American Meteorological Society, American Geophysical Union, U.S. National Academy of Sciences, Environment Canada, and virtually every other American and international scientific academy. That would make them liars too and part of a global conspiracy according to you. Not plausible. You have no credibility.

  • Ian5

    No, you have been provided with evidence and have been unable to refute it: https://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/global-temperature/

  • Ian5

    Amusing use of Caps

    “SINCE THERE WAS MORE CO2 IN THE PAST – MUCH MORE – WHERE DID IT ALL GO TO”

    >> Have a look at the carbon cycle link that I sent you where it talks about carbon sinks. Plants sequester carbon through photosynthesis over millions upon millions of years. Dead organic material accumulates and the resulting heat and pressure forms fossil fuels. By burning fossil fuels we are effectively releasing millions of years of stored carbon back into the atmosphere in a matter of decades.

    “HOW COULD THE TEMP OF THE WHOLE EARTH SEA AND SKY BE MEASURED ACCURATELY 100 YEARS AGO”

    >> Mercury thermometers have been around since the 1700s.
    Instrumental temperature records extend back over 250 years in some locations (the Central England temperature data series starts in 1659). Since the late 19th century has there been a sufficient number of climate stations to estimate the average temperature. More information on specific stations and associated data here: https://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/station_data/

  • nworder

    YOU SAID IT – THE CARBON (self balancing) cycle that according to you has been around for millions of years or billions of years as Bill Nye the lie guy would say.

    So for billions of years (allegedly) the carbon has balanced out to where we are now which seems near perfect although we could do with more for plant growth. So if we have got “millions” or billions of years of carbon stored it must have been in circulation in earlier periods – so no CARBON has been added to this cycle and we are all here with only 1 CO2 molecule to 2500 of air – so your ” cycle” seems to be working .

    BUT how would you get rid of marshes and one species of insect – termites – that produce more CO2 than human activity – what about volcanoes that spew out CO2 all around even when dormant – what about undersea vents that
    breathe out CO2 all the time – will you put a cement plug into them .

    THERE IS NO WAY THAT A FEW THERMOMETERS 100 YEARS AGO MEASURE .01 degrees cent. per annum
    You are a scientific fantasist if you think that the oceans and sea temp can be measured worldwide even with a trillion thermometers .
    AND the truth is the seas are the main receptacle for heat – so you are Bill Nying there.

    AS OF NOW – NO ONE CAN MEASURE THE TEMP OF THE EARTH SEA AND SKY ACCURATELY AT A POINT IN TIME – perfect for science hoaxers to get paid for this political scam

    NOT CONVINCED AT ALL

  • nworder

    BOUGHT AND FAKE EVIDENCE – The only real evidence is the temp has not gone up !
    AND humans have almost zero contribution to CO2 compared with other inputs
    AND the sun is the only source of heat
    AND dust , water vapour ( clouds) are 99% of greenhouse working for cooling and warming.

    I never look at fake websites – especially when a troll provides it

  • nworder

    TELL ME – how much you think the temp has gone up in the 100 years – do you agree with the 1 degree cent in 100 years
    BUT just naming a bundle of fake evidence is useless if the temp has not gone up
    AND what about the output of termites and marshes dwarfing human activity output
    HOW would you measure the temp of the earth sea and sky 100 years ago with a few thermometers.
    THE sea would be impossible as would the sky – due to lack of satellites – lol

    WHEN A POLITICALLY AND PROFIT DRIVEN SCAM IS BEING CARRIED OUT ALL AGENCIES GOVERNMENT AND PRIVATE WILL PLAY BALL – or the corrupt American government will crush them
