Climate Change explained

In a mere eight frame comic, Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, explains Climate Change science. It is not only informative, it also has the added benefit of being funny.

    Succinct.

      My head nearly explodes when a person I could “reach out & end” says something as asinine as “settled science.” Even the most reliable natural law we know of isn’t settled science. We don’t know where gravity comes from or what particle of an atom might lend gravity to mass, but we can measure it so precisely that Einstein could predict the effect it’d have on a ray of light passing the Sun. Still not settled, the largest source of it is unobservable & while the equation works every time (something climate equations have yet to come close to) it’s just “magic” because we have no idea why it actually works, because we still have no grasp of the real relationship between mass & gravity, CERN is still just fumbling for that.

    Nothing is settled except opinion.

      Then the claim that Climate Change science is settled is a lie, according to you?

        We settle on different opinions according to our circumstances, and we weight the evidence to support our opinions. This is easy with an extremely complex subject like climate. The vast majority have given up saying the climate is not changing the argument now is about what is causing the change.

          Who said the climate does not change?

            Ponderous long term changes have been accepted but short term ones are less acceptable especially if we have to shoulder the blame. Those who don’t want to change their lifestyles can buy carbon offsets or just deny we have anything to do with it.
            The trouble is evidence is looking damaging when Buddhist monks have to meditate in breathing masks and the French are insisting on contamination badges for Paris traffic. I’m a bit worried Steve suppose its true I hope Donald has his ear to the ground.

              I thought you were going to tell me who said the climate does not change? By the way, pollution and Climate Change are two different things.

              I only speak for those local neighbors
              of mine and acquaintances I meet most have their doubts , some openly deny it saying its just variable climate that has always existed. I expect it comes from red- necked skeptics in the press. Well some put changes down to pollution. The scientific consensus is we are at the very least contributing.

              Crazy old dude, everything contributes bit the main changes are cosmic and come from changes in the Sun, cosmic rays, COSMIC IMPACTS, Magnetic pole changes, etc! WAKE UP!!!

    Follow the money trail to see where science is getting the money from, and who is profiting from the science.

      I have written a series of posts on the money. Tata, for instance, is a major player.

        Don’t forget Al Gore and the Chicago Carbon Exchange (CCX). Never forget Al Gore – he invented the internet too!

          Al has a sequel to his completely wrong “An Inconvenient Truth”.

    Climate change is mostly cyclical and Natural and it has happened many times before and it is happening again right now…

    I’ve been listening to these doomsday idiots for literally over fifty years. According to them, we should’ve been out of oil twenty years ago, pollution would have everyone walking around with gas masks on, overpopulation would be a huge problem, and disease would kill millions. None of this happened. Instead, there have been more natural resources discovered, people are living longer than ever, and that ICE AGE that was predicted in the 70’s, never occurred. If folks are so worried about the environment, let them do something on a personal level. All I know, is that I see a lot more cars on the streets than buses and bicycles or walkers. Climate change is just another leftist effort to give government more power over its citizens.
