    Are they a bit insane? Let's park whether or not it's man made, but it is happening quickly now. Why argue about whose fault it is while the ship's sinking FFS! Mother nature will look after herself whether we as humans are part of that on going story is an entirely different matter.

    pretty much sums it up tbh ,nothing will change.

    The great and the good (hypocrits ?) some of whom fly around the world in private jets to there multiple homes , will continue to pontificate to the rest of us about climate change :)

    still it will all change when we get leccy cars :LOL:
     
  5. I agree with climate change - that's damned obvious - but I'm not convinced it's man made. But the global warming bunch insist they are the same, and both man made. The problem, is that because they INSIST it's man made, they only look at one way to deal with it, and in shutting down the debate, then no one looks for the real cause - if there is one.

    And I agree, mother nature will happily handle what we throw at her, we just may not like what she does.

    Thing is, with "Climate Change" , they'll still keep having conferences about it, till the cows come home,,, and these experts will still fly, half way around the world to attend these conferences, instead of sitting at home or in their office joining in a video conference call... Tell me who are the hypocrites them or us???

    Do you think wind farms should be erected by people in sail or row boats only?

    Probably zero, but they reduce the amount of electricity needed to pump water in the land drainage system.

    -Everything here is wrong.

    First of all, we know that it is caused by us, due to the rise in fossil fuel carbon (different isotope to carbon from organic sources), but there are other reasons:

    But the idea that debate is shut down is also wrong. Its just that those who disagree are lacking in evidence. There are even those that disagree in the IPCC. Like most scientific communities, opposing evidence is not quashed, but examined. Yes there are pieces of evidence that will appear to contradict AGW, but the balance of evidence still points to us being the cause.

    Anyone got any idea what caused climate change for billions of years before man burnt fossil fuels and why this process stopped suddenly just as man started to burn coal?

    No. It's not an argument. It's a serious question. If fossil fuel being burnt is the cause of climate change now, what was the cause for the first few billion years?
