    There are of course scientifically illiterate whackjobs who still think it's all a big Evil Scientist/Government conspiracy. Fortunately their willfully ignorant bluster does little more than add to the gaseous heating.
    Then why haven't we had the global warming they predicted by now? They have been preaching gloom and doom for 40 years now. By now we should be living in a steam oven, or floating around on rafts like in Water World. Yet, the climate today is the same as it was 40 years ago. We have hot and mild summers, cold and mild winters, we have floods and droughts, hurricanes and tornadoes. Just like we did in the 70's, 80's, 90's, 2000's, 2010's... Practically half a century of "global warming" scares and still nothing.

    So now instead of crying "global warming" they change it to "climate change" - that way they have it covered whether the earth warms up or cools down. Genius.

      Does that include China's and India's leaders? No lip service, actual actions. In any case, solar power will finally--if you can stand some word play--have its day in the sun. Hawaii, for example, is expected to have even competition between solar power plus storage and conventional (actually diesel-fueled) power sometime next year. California to follow suit in 2017. Texas sometime after. The beagle does not need to yelp any more.

        Then it won't happen, if you don't get at least the major industrial nations, specifically India and China, on board then we need to start making other plans. Like how to adapt.

            Ah, square_peg, can you define "climate"? The Beagle either has me on ignore or is unable to define "climate."

                Perhaps, but we really still don't know how much of that increase is cause by man. Nor do we really know the rates of rise in the far distant past. Perhaps what is happening today is actually less than what was happening ten thousands years ago.
