    Best answer: Earth’s average surface air temperature has increased by about 0.8 °C (1.4 °F) since 1900, with much of this increase taking place since the mid-1970s.

    A wide range of other observations such as reduced Arctic sea ice extent and increased ocean heat content and indications from the natural world such as poleward shifts of temperature-sensitive species of fish, mammals, insects, etc together provide incontrovertible evidence of planetary-scale warming.

    Elitist leftists pushing for increasing the power of the state to enrich themselves and control the behavior of everyone else. It is a very old game.

    I checked page 224 and it does show what a convenient year 1979 is. Alarmists love to make graphs that look bad. They play games with the scale and color. It is a PR game and it is amazing how many clowns they get to fall for it. It is sad, really. All you have to do is say it is science. They love to think of themselves as up to date on the latest science.

    Hillary illegally keeps her server unsecure with classified information so that she can keep the cash flowing into her slush fund and they took millions and millions from the Russian, trading away national interests with Uranium assets (maybe more), and now these same useful idiot alarmists think Trump is colluding with the Russians. It is just mind numbing stupidity.

    I am currently an IT and I'm a soldier in the military. Somehow I got to work in this underground office (protected from missiles) and I work shifts everyday. I can't really leave or change the job because that would only get me into trouble for unobeying a command that can even result in jail. It's really hard for me not to have a window, not to see sunlight or rain most of the day. I find myself striving for "nature" and fresh air when I get released sometimes in the weekends or during the week. I have two more years in the army and I want to make the most of them but my mentality hurts my well being. How can I not take this so hard?

  • Will the Sun melt and get rid of all the ice on earth?

    Best answer: It's not the sun as much as it is the greenhouse gasses trapping the heat that our planet gets from both the sun and the earth's molten core. The heat on earth should gradually dissipate into space but greenhouse gasses trap the heat so it can't escape the earth's atmosphere.

    Best answer: Scott Pruitt is having all sorts of problems, his security in his first year cost the EPA well over 3 million.

    He is the head of a government agency charged with protecting human health and the environment. but he is dismantling that agency. Two of the aides he brought with him from Oklahoma, just handed in their resignations and he had given them a huge pay raise through a loophole in the safe drinking water act. The act allows hiring people in the case of an emergency, but contacting a business on behalf of his wife, who wanted to open a franchise, is hardly an emergency.

    As for lead, I will give him the benefit of the doubt and that he wants to be seen to do the right thing there. His problem is that he saw the need for a soundproof phone booth in his office and wants to us to believe he wants to do away with "secret science". His staff at the EPA are suing him to produce evidence for his AGW denial.

    I understand that living in Washington is expensive, I am not complaining that he is enlisting his staff to help find him an apartment, a mattress, or that he dines in the White House mess more than he should. What I do have a problem with is his conspiracy theories and his dismantling of the EPA.

    For JimZ:

    Most business owners will do the right thing and environmental regulation is there to allow the honest businesses to be able to compete on a fair basis with the unscrupulous, who are willing to cut corners and have no care if people get hurt. Those regulations need to be enforced or they are meaningless. JimZ is complaining about this regulation, but dismantling the EPA is just dumb. Remember that the EPA was created in part because the Cuyahoga river was so polluted that it "caught fire". I also dislike paperwork (with a passion), but I understand why it is needed.

    This has nothing to do with left wing, right wing politics, a reasonable person would agree that pollution is bad, even if you disagree with the scientific community. One would even expect that conservatives would be all for protecting the environment and do so with a passion, while progressives would be less enthusiastic. Right now it is the progressives that are proposing (half heart-ed) measures while the conservatives busy themselves denying the science.
