    Damm- who let this out- falling temps while CO2 rises? That's not supposed to happen!

    Well, according to this, written in 1998- we should all be dead, or something... https://www.apnews.com/bd45c372caf118ec99964ea547880cd0

    Good discussion of the current science: https://www.drroyspencer.com/global-warming-natural-or-manmade/ And here's the main reason I don't believe in man made global warming- didn't have many carbon emitters around for just about all of the last 400,000 years, yet this clear cycle persists. Right now we're warming- but my money is on a cooler future, not warmer, unfortunate since cooler will be a lot harder on the human race than warming up a bit:

    You really need to move past this- it's a weak argument. Doesn't matter who writes the article, or who publishes it. The relevant question is who generated the data, and is it accurately presented. End of discussion. Saying oh, it's Breitbart, etc. only shows you don't have a real argument and have fallen back on trying to discredit the message by attacking the messenger. Pretty much every source has a bias- even NASA has been shown to be all over the ideological map depending on who has the presidency, etc.

    Just one of many examples. GIGO "the published temperature graphs for three weather stations in Paraguay against the temperatures that had originally been recorded. In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming." https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/earth/environment/globalwarming/11395516/The-fiddling-with-temperature-data-is-the-biggest-science-scandal-ever.html

    To repeat- there's a pretty easy and valid argument that much of the historical land/ocean surface temp data has been corrupted, to the point that it has little if any validity. And when you review sources you'll see that the adjustments only go in one direction- up. I don't think it gives us an honest picture of what's happening. Satellite data has only been around for a couple of decades but is still in its raw form and does a better job of capturing the totality of the planets climate change. And, as stated in a post above, it shows rapidly falling temps. https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1653928 https://realclimatescience.com/2019/02/61-of-noaa-ushcn-adjusted-temperature-data-is-now-fake/

    Those are land surface temps- without getting into the specifics I'll just say that all of that data is now so corrupted by "corrections," "adjustments," and at times outright manipulations that it's value is significantly reduced.

    The main concern is crop production. It has been so wet this year that many in the Midwest couldn't plant in time for full production. Europe also experienced significant problems that received little coverage here in the states. With many countries already unable to feed themselves- China, etc- further crop shortages are a significant problem. Global warming actually increases the amount of arable land- cooling/wetter weather hurts production and leaves few alternatives.

    Here's a major difference between the two of us: I'm all about the data- you're about the messenger and the position you've chosen to defend....no matter what. I don't care if it's Greta or the head of NASA that carries the message- I want to see what the facts are. Facts are relatively incontrovertible. The messenger is unimportant- there is nothing so farcical as a partisan trying to distract from "inconvenient truths" by slamming the messenger while completely ignoring the message. You've revealed all we need to know about your intellectual capabilities along with intent- facts don't matter, as apparently neither does your credibility.

    https://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/climate-change-global-warming-earth-cooling-media-bias/ "Aaron Brown looked at the official NASA global temperature data and noticed something surprising. From February 2016 to February 2018, "global average temperatures dropped by 0.56 degrees Celsius." That, he notes, is the biggest two-year drop in the past century." NASA Data...….. not Greta....

    Actually....looking at the only really reliable data available- satellite scans- the temps have been falling, and are expected to fall significantly further over the next couple of years. The good news is this debate should resolve within 5-10 years as confirming data for this theory becomes available. The bad news is we'll get cooling, not warming. Warming isn't nearly the threat cooling presents. But that's another debate...

    Ah, the well reasoned response from the left. Show me some data, not just your lack of understanding, inarticulate profanity, ad hominin attacks, etc. Your response is a perfect example of why these discussions rarely move forward. It seems you're married to an ideology, not the truth. Or you would use the truth to support your position.

    We aren't going to change the totality of global warming by reducing man's CO2 emissions. It's the sun, magnetic fields, cloud cover- all beyond our control and well documented as long term cycles in the historical temperature records. Frankly, it never made sense. CO2 represents just over half a percent of the atmosphere- and only a small fraction of that comes from mankind. But it's the current vehicle for the left and their desired political change/redistribution. So much ignorance, much of it willful. And a lack of comprehension- computer models (the vast majority of which have failed) don't generate data or facts, only theories. GIGO. A bit hard to understand, but this is the only explanation currently supported by hard facts- real data, statistically significant relationships, and plausible causation relationships as opposed to simple correlation:
