At the risk of detracting from my blog below I nevertheless feel compelled to ask this question and take a head count, so to speak of those who care to comment. Just a yes or no will do, or you can add a comment to your answer if you like.

history says no, the only scientist saying it is are the ones making money by doing so. the others say it's just normal changes that have gone on as long as we can track back.

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Jul 21, 2014 at 18:35 PM

Thanks gacpl: That's one NO.

What say...Sebe, Funk, Sheran, Tot, mbuc, PoliticsNation, lholmes, EYES, UP2, MADDOG, HMJC, Right4life, to name just few!

Shucks, seems Silence is Golden. However, for my two cents my answer is drum roll please....YES!

someone needs to break the tie.

HMJC commented on Tuesday, Jul 22, 2014 at 14:54 PM

Climate Change is real... Since the Industrial Revolution began the de-forestation, Factory discharges, and Automobile emissions has had a negative impact on climate. One of the biggest concerns to date is still de-forestation as that directly affects the Photosynthesis Cycle and the ability for flora and fauna to continue to covert CO2 to O2. It is more than the "normal" progression of nature.

I am by far not an Enviro Nazi but have been pursuing a degree in environmental management and have learned a lot about what the Al Gore Patrol has been trying to say. We are not near critical mass yet but the unfortunate reality is as a people we do not get concerned until one, it directly affects us or two, it's too late to reverse the damage.

Thank you HMJC. The count is now: 2 say it is real and so far 1 says it is not.

For my friend Sebe: Poll shows 2 out of 3 people feel climate change is real. Amazing thing polls.

Back to being tied.....no. We just are more acclimated to our AC and our comfort.

JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Jul 22, 2014 at 17:20 PM

Thanks Mike. Votes DO count. 'member when we used to get articles in the paper like: "Aunt Martha visited cousins in Jesup on Saturday. They talked and drank ice Tea before settling down to a dinner of Fried Chicken, butter beans, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, and enjoyed a Fresh Apple pie made by Aunt Joan." Aunt Martha got home around six and said she had a wonderful time during her visit."

Now, we get notices saying: "Jimmy Darsey, was admitted to LRMC late Frday nite after yet to be determined ingesting an undidentified amount of drugs." Word on the street is no one including his family is talking."

A Law Enforcement Officer is being placed at the entrance to his room where he remains handcuffed.

Ah, if we could go back to those 'good ole Aunt Martha days.'

The Times They Are a'Changing, Mike.

HMJC commented on Wednesday, Jul 23, 2014 at 08:36 AM

And Roger... I would take Aunt Martha any day.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Jul 23, 2014 at 09:03 AM

And...according to the Poll taken...at this TIME it seems the populace is split 50-50 re: Global Warming! And here I thought there would be a much greater discrepancy in opinion! Stupid me.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Jul 23, 2014 at 10:09 AM

Also, thing were 'cooler' back in Aunt Martha's day.

One thing that bothers me is whenever there is ANY evidence related to "climate change," (i.e., what would ordinarily be seen as evidence "pro" or "con"), the proponents of global warming always try have it both ways and use it to support their argument. Specifically:

*When the temperature trends are shown to be increasing, it's due to man-made causes

*When the temperature trends are shown to be decreasing, it is due to man-made causes

*When polar ice is decreasing, it is due to man-made causes

*When polar ice is increasing, it is due to man-made causes

*When the hole(s) in the ozone layer get larger, it is due to man-made causes

*When the hole(s) in the ozone layer get smaller, it is due to man-made causes

Etc., etc., etc. Also - whenever there is any science that debunks the man-made climate change argument, the proponents are quick to attack the messenger and discredit them personally and professionally - even though their scientific credentials and topical experience may be just as valid and extensive as the proponents. For example, if you go here:

http://www.climatedepot.com/2014/03/0...

http://www.forbes.com/sites/peterferr...

and even here:

http://www.economist.com/news/science...

you get the clear sense that "global warming" due to man-made causes is NOT the done deal that proponents would like you to believe. But you definitely don't get that sense if you follow the issue in the lamestream media, who are generally in the pockets of the proponents (who are mostly DEMOCRATS - surprised?)

Speaking of Democrats: Personally, I usually try to apply some simple test(s) when I am considering what to believe. One of those tests applies in this case. That is:

If an idea is supported by Al Gore, one MUST be skeptical.

@SEBE: Got a honey do...will return later with MY links and rationale.

Philosophical Republican posturing plays well amongst Evangelical Snake Handlers, most Rednecks, and the numerous minions of Karl Rove.

Achtung Juden!!! The Tea Party's real agenda. That, Brown People, Liberals, Scientists, Sociologists, teachers and Professors. The Anger is deep within them.

Yo Tot, my man. That goat I bought from that man out in Gum Branch for some reason ain't talking to me today. I called the man up and he said it's because he said he don't talk on Week Ends. Imagine that.

So now I am left with the only other goat I know that speaks from time to time when he ain't cuttin' out newspaper articles to do his talking for him.

Anyway...Tot: Is Global Warming Real??

shannalat commented on Monday, Jul 28, 2014 at 13:54 PM

So is global warming real?? Is it man made?
Let's see yes global warming is real if you are referring to climate change and the melting of the ice at the arctic. I would normally say that there is no way anyone could argue against this fact but I have seen it happen. Let us put it simple ice melts when it gets hot and more ice is melting now than last year. Yes more ice is forming but the rates are lopsided. NASA has done some amazing work with this through their satellites. When anyone gets the chance they should check out the NASA website.
Now is it man made? Global warming or climate change. Did man cause an increase in the temperature of the earth? Well if the temp change in the earths atmosphere is caused by excessive amounts of carbon dioxide than man is a contributor yes.
Now I have a question for everyone else. Doe it matter?
Take a look at Mexico city, LA, Bejing, and many other cities in China. The pollution in the cities makes it hard for people to breath. Does it matter if climate change is real or if climate change is man made when you cannot breath because of the poisoning of the environment?
See the thing about man and his impact on earth is this the environment will survive despite mans poisoning of it long after man is gone.

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Jul 28, 2014 at 15:36 PM

Agree with some of that but not all of it. We are getting warmer. Via it be thru earth's natural cycles or coupled with the documented damage man is doing. Regardless: It's GETTING WARMER.

We cannot control earth's natural changes but we CAN control man made environmental factors. And yes, Mama Earth will be here long after we have gone. Having shakin' mankind off like a wet dog shakin' off water. We will have damaged her, but she will endure however, the more damage we do, the quicker our quality of life goes down and without any solutions on the drawing board we are an absolutely doomed species.

Jimmy: You seem to have a man-crush on Karl Rove - you seem to mention him in quite a few of your posts. Why is that?

But re: Climate change - it is predictable that the anti-business Dems would be proponents and the pro-business GOP would be agin' it. Personally, I don't trust the science, but in this case I just don't know. It would be nice to be "better safe than sorry," but at what cost?

The Australians have recently opted out:

http://www.environment.gov.au/climate...

And it appears that - especially in U.S. states where energy is produced and coal is mined, the issue is a net loser for the global warming proponents.

Unfortunately for the proponents, we all live on the same planet, and unless EVERYBODY gets behind the issue, any gains will undoubtedly be offset by those polluting "developing countries."

I don't see this issue getting resolved anytime soon.

Jimmy: You seem to have a man-crush on Karl Rove - you seem to mention him in quite a few of your posts. Why is that?

Yes it is true. When he is in Savannah or Hilton Head we meet and do Tequila shots together. Not too bad a guy when he is hammered. Plus he has an shared affinity for female anatomically correct inflatable dolls. His collection 'dwarfs' mine so, if guess you may have picked up on my envy here.

As far as the Aussies go and their repealing of the carbon tax, what can you expect from legislators that are direct descendants from a penal colony. Some forms of criminality are genetically predisposed. Lasts for generations.

You anti-business democrat comments aside, the U.S. will become the worlds largest oil producer in 2015-16. Kinda eliminates the carbon emission card. Maybe BHO had it in for coal due to self hatred for all things black??!!!

Wouldn't worry tho, sebe, when them Republicans get control of the wheel again they will be sure to crank up the carbon emission business friendly policy. We all gotta die from something, don't we??
