Global warming update

Post by Metacrock » Mon May 12, 2014 7:10 am

Three new studies just out on Global warming: all posted on Metacrcok's Blog this morning.

*The first is a study that shows the effects of global warming are already being felt in rising sea levels and stronger storms.

*The second is the NCA report that is released every year, same conclusions

*third is a new methodology that isolates the 90 companies responsible for 2/3 of fossil fuel pollution, thus 2/3 of man's hand in climate change.

The only thing missing is a procedure to quantify the amount of impact that pollution has versus background effects.

What do you mean, Sgttomas? Surely you're aware of this image? Or is it that you want Metacrock to add it to his post? If you're interested, I could pull up some articles quantifying the impact of the trend in solar irradiance, which is the only known natural global forcing.

Heh....I'm mostly just trolling.

There's a really interesting technical discussion behind this, but I just dropped 2.5 years worth of ideas in the other forums so I'm not going to try and overdo things ;)

aaahahaah unfortunately I just don't have time to become a scholar of global warming. I should be.

16 or 17 years ago I visited the San Blas islands off of the coast of Panama and they were so low that you got the idea that even a wave a foot high would go down the main street. If there is any sea rise, they will let us know first.
