Posted on 10/07/14 at 10:56 am in response to New evidence suggests Earth's oceans are warming far faster than we knew

The first subtitle: "How can we know so little?"

Todd, how can this be? This is all settled science, consensus stuff, right? What we don't know, we can learn from computer models, right? Let's talk boldly like we know it all, stifle all meaningful conversation, shout down people and label them as deniers if they dare to disagree or challenge the status quo.

Science advances when science is challenged; consensus is not the thing of science, it is the tool of agenda, of...

36 of 38 (95%) major computer climate models predicted dire climate doom that never came to pass.

Global warming began as Earth started warming up from the Pleistocene Ice Age, a time when the lands on which we live were buried beneath thick sheets of glacial ice. In my opinion, we are living in better, more hospitable times. I think we are fortunate to be living during an inter-glacial period. Given the choice between glacial and inter-glacial, I will go with inter-glacial every time.

Seven or eight thousand years ago the land bridge that linked what we call Alaska to what we...

... someone who is consistently rude and name-calling on every subject. Reread your post and see if you can find your contribution to the conversation.

At the march in New York City promoting global warming awareness, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. stated that there should be a law against skeptics and those who question climate change.

It is clear that a discussion, a conversation, is not welcome. As we all can see directly above, a climate zealot is always poised to insult and shout...

Had you, you would have seen that the Daily Mail is reporting on the UN IPCC report.

No one was questioning direction, we have been coming out of an ice age for quite a few years now. Magnitude, that is what was overstated. Again.

It seems that 400 PPM is not the tipping point that it was sold to be. There are many factors besides CO at play, hundreds, Carbon is an easy one to explain, understand, and parrot.

"Princeton U. Physicist Dr. William Happer and NASA Moonwalker & Geologist Dr. Harrison H. Schmitt wrote on May 8, 2013 in the Wall Street Journal: “Thanks to the single-minded demonization of this natural and essential atmospheric gas by advocates of government control of energy production, the...

While you would surely prefer Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s stated solution that there should be a law against skeptics and those who question climate change, that is not how we roll here.

When in the course of Earth's history has the climate not been in flux?

The efforts to stifle this conversation serve only to encourage those of us that have not bought into the settle science dogma. Continue your attempts to belittle and ridicule the heretics that dare challenge the status quo;...

Your devolution into unkind words and phrases, like "full of crap", "stupid", "obtuse", "unintelligent", say more about you than anything else.

"That's not enough time for entire ecosystems to pack their bags and move off to another part of the planet." Really? Are you aware that 99.9% of all past species are extinct? Extinct. But, this time will be different, because man is here to slow it all down and make it better? Let's all dwell on that idea for a moment, and you can take...

The carbonifereous period.

Earth experienced an ice age 450 million years ago, with CO2 somewhere between 2000 and 8000 ppm. According to Hansen’s theories – all life on Earth should have been extinct before it even evolved.
