Climate change is inconsequential (because Peak Oil is a bigger issue)

Forums - Politics Discussion - Climate change is inconsequential (because Peak Oil is a bigger issue)

There is growing sentiment that global warming will have minimal impact. I saw an article a few weeks back saying that somewhere around 70% said minimal to no impact based on a survey of climatologist and meteorologist, but for the life of me I can't find the original article, which wasn't from a biased source. Now all I can find is one from Britbart, which pisses me off, because I wouldn't believe it if it was the only place I found it. But here it is: https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2015/07/31/new-study-majority-of-climate-scientists-dont-agree-with-consensus/

It at least has a link to the actual study. Here's another link from National Association of scholars where it's estimated to be closer to 40% - https://www.nas.org/articles/Estimated_40_Percent_of_Scientists_Doubt_Manmade_Global_Warming

I don't know about global warming, I'm not qualified - but I am gaining steam in believing Google is filtering its results to not show dissenting opinions. I could find none of them using Google, a few more using Edge, and the most using DuckDuckGo. Feel free to experiment by typing anything about a study going against the consensus of global warming among the different search engines and you'll see it too. Basically Google just pulled up articles confirming Global Warming and one about how Americans deny it because they're dumb. Never really believed they were filtering (I guess) conservative content till now.

Checked both links.

Breitbart is, well, Breitbart, and I take everything they say with a Megaton of salt.

NAS, or national Assocoiation of Scolars, however is a conservative advocacy group, and it's positions are very close to those of hardline conservatives and neoconservatives They blocked readings of Civic rights in Universities and called for rejecting multiculturalism in school newspapers while at the same time preaching freedom of speech. They tried to shrink the history lessons down by limiting military, economic, diplomatic, scientific and political history in favor of historical teachings about race, class and gender.

As for their article, it has one major issue: They just say "scientists" - which can be of any science and thus not necessarily qualified for the question, like climatologists would be. They are also quoting the Singer and his NIPCC, which is a climate change denialist group. The fact that despite this they could only get up to 40% is basically shattering their whole thread they were trying to spin. They had to scrape the bottom of the barrel and still only reached 40%.

Climate change is a myth. Climate change is absolute crap! There is no such thing as climate change. Climate change is not man made, it does not exist. Carbon dioxide does not create climate change.


Its all just a coincidence that as CO2 concentration rises, our global temp. on the planet does as well right?
People are drawing the wrong conclusions? and its in no way man made?

Nothing to worry about right?

I hope you are being sarcastic since 97% of climate scientists have researched and agreed that man made climate change is real. I'll only listen to people who spent their lives researching this stuff. Not anyone else whether they are the smartest physicist, some huge world leader or an idiot on the internet. I don't care how dmart you are, it's not what you dedicated your life researching. And I want actual proof of a conspiracy if 97% of all climate scientists are telling a lie and the proof needs to be indisputable since our specie's existence depends on it

Pay for what?

Building higher levees in the Netherlands.

Though considering he's German, he should be worrying more about Friesland, which would be equally affected. All those jokes being lost...

Well, nobody should be paying for anyone else's stuff.  Dissolve the EU and part of that problem will be solved.

But I also don't want that these bastards come to my home town once their cities have sunken. What should I do? Buy Guns? Do water proof guns exist?



I honestly couldnt give less of a shit of climate change and whatnot. We'll all be dead anyways before we see any too many consequences.

Honestly, I still have my doubts about it. Just last year, my city had the most snowfall since like 1996 or something.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Can this be moved to Political Discussion where it unfortunately belongs?



The reality is we'll have long run out of safe drinking water by centuries before global warming has the chance to wipe out all living things.
