Q: Is it warming, climate change, global cooling?

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2018/03/18/approaching-grand-solar-minimum-could-cause-global-cooling/

 

So my professor in the 1980's was right, people used words like consensus and then every thing you sight is a contradiction.

 

what has caused science to be as fucked up as politics?

 

So we have warming gases against sunspots and nobody really knows the results, but we need to do something, how about sit on the toilet and hollar "oh shit" for a hundred years.

My barnicles are swelling, my testicles are bloating, I will bet you a lego millenium falcon set, this year will be the hotest on record.

A seagrass failure in OZ will contribute, as will the Russian tundra.

How we define hotest year on record I will leave to you.

NZ is just coming out of the hottest summer on record. I think it was pretty hot in Australia too.

If you actually listened to a scientist and not the BS articles from the likes of Fox and infowars you'd know the global warming triggers a cooling, when the polar ice caps melt, it effects the movement of the oceans (which distribute warmth from the equator) and so on

More tampering to make an agenda match a prediction that will be wrong anyway.

According to Al Gore we were all supposed to have died years ago because of the ice caps melting. In reality the ice caps are larger now than they were before.

Put on your tin foil hat and conspiracy brain reboot and explain

 

low sunspot activity, huge glacial meltdown, but not rise in water level, theories anybody, the article is written poorly but if I understand the liberal journalists trying to convey science, the temperature in Lake Michigan dropped 32 degrees in 9 hours and they don't know why.

So if we are entering another mini ice age, will all the nerds admit they were wrong about global warming. NOT A CHANCE

Global cooling will get rd of pollution, may kill the food supply, but everything has a side affect.

So the shifts of the Earth's orbit can cause mass temperature changes of 8 degrees C worldwide plus or minus.

 

I wonder how many "woke" people will bother to even read this research. Why bother, just take a crap in a hole and ride your horse and feel sanctimonious.

Stiggs:

Dunno if I'm 'woke' enough to read this, I ate a salad the other day, does that count?

 

Anyway, I clicked on the link and read it, it's early in the morning here and I'm still half asleep so all that sciency stuff is hard to absorb but the summary paragraph........

 

"Whatever was responsible for the surge of carbon dioxide that preceded the PETM, the event—and the rise in global temperatures that followed—are the best analogue in the rock record for current human-caused global warming. That does not mean orbital forcing is playing a role in anthropogenic climate change, Zeebe says. In fact, humans are releasing carbon into the atmosphere far faster than it occurred at the time of the PETM, meaning its impacts could be more severe. “Obviously, orbital configurations today are very different than they were 56 million years ago,” he says. “And in terms of future climate change, there’s very little expectation that orbital forcing will reduce or mitigate [it]."......

 

just seems to be confirming what science has been saying for years now, that Earth has always cooled and warmed, we (humanity) have been pumping tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere which is greatly exacerbating the natural cycle and it's pretty unlikely any natural force is going to counter what we're doing.

 

I'm not sure what point OP is trying to make in his last sentence, maybe he crapped on his horse, fell in a hole and is feeling hungover.

Yes ... , cooling and things ...

 

https://news.yahoo.com/possible-ufos-spotted-off-florida-210556712.html

 

Possible UFOs spotted off Florida coast

The National U.F.O. Reporting Center says there have been 245 new UFO reports through March 30th and now a Florida man has two more for the research outlet.

William Fuentes of Palm Coast sent video of two UFOs he spotted to WOFL, the Fox-owned TV station in Orlando. The dazzling video shows two orbs of light soaring airborne across the night sky.

 

... just in case, somebody wants Z visa ...

Answer of the DayMORE >>

A:If you earned a Master's Degree in English Literature or a related subject, you can teach English legally in China even if you don't hold a passport from the usually accepted list of countries. The visa requirements clearly specifies this “loophole”.Nonetheless, I think this requirement is only for teaching English. If you are a licensed teacher of another discipline, such as Math or Physics, you don't need to be a native speaker, although most schools would rather hire a teacher from a country where English is the native language.Right now China’s borders are closed (does anyone have new information?), at least that’s what everyone is saying. China is probably only going to reopen the borders again once most of the population is vaccinated, and that might take a while. -- samvelasco87
