    Hell if we started to see the next ice age in progress the alarmists would be screaming...global warming!

    Remember that whenever it gets too warm or hurricanes, tornadoes, earth quakes or forest fires happen they are all due to climate change. Anything else is always either merely climate anomalies or acts of God.

    The sad news for those who hope for current climate of Earth (which means the current carriering ability would not be destroyed by extra heat) is that Solar Minimums and Maximums are trivial in comparison to the effects of increasing CO2 and other greenhouse gasses.

    The heat variability from the Solar heating from the Sun provide only a almost trivial difference in Earth's heat input.

    Perhaps in the Middle Ages, the hysteria and excuses by Denialists could be understandable, but now that science and technology can directly measure the heat being applied to Earth, we know exactly its effect on Earth.

    Another Fail from the fossil fuel propaganda Mahine.

    Huh? It's been way hotter and man played no role whatsoever. It's been way colder and man played no role. You are overstating man's role, the climate changes and always has and always will.

    Then how does one hurricane become proof of global warming or climate change or whatever you are calling it today?

    There is no need to push as it has existed for decades. I grew up with a bus pass and there was nowhere I couldn't go. People aren't using it.

    While climate change itself is not a political issue (We are living in between ice ages) it is being exploited for power. I am not claiming that republicans are any better, but I live in the bluest part of the bluest state. Our politicians have pushed for higher taxes to improve environmental issues, homelessness, road conditions, schools, etc.

    Results: In spite of our taxes being among the highest, our air is among the worst, beaches are toxic, homelessness is increasing, our roads are crumbling, and our schools rank among the lowest.

    Meanwhile Australia is experiencing record amounts of wildfire and heatwaves. Almost like Global Warming necessarily entails some sort of GLOBAL aspect.

    It does not. It is an event that is either consistent with or inconsistent with the patterns created by global warming. It is also possible to study where a particular event is likely to have been made worse or better by climate change.

    Both labels are acceptable.

    This is the false alternative fallacy. You presume that because previous episodes of an event were caused by something else, that means that this specific episode can not be attributed to humans.

    And why would it mean that?

    You could just as easily argue that climate change means moderation.

    Such as warming after an ice age.

    But there's no white man's money in that.

    My sincere thanks to all the "scientists" that have "contributed" to this thread. It has been hilarious.
