• Why were 49 former NASA scientists and astronauts ignored 5 years ago when they called for an end to junk climate science at NASA?

    Best answer: Many of the bureaucrats like Hansen wanted to use their position to further their leftist ideology. Without exaggeration of the threat of CO2, it isn't useful to their Cause.

  • Are scientists in agreement that there is global warming?

    Best answer: I think there is 100% agreement among scientists that the earth is warming. It warmed about 0.8 C in the 20th century and is on track for roughly the same amount this century. The big questions are what is causing the warming trend, and will it spiral out of control if we continue pouring sequestered CO2 into the... show more
    Best answer: I think there is 100% agreement among scientists that the earth is warming. It warmed about 0.8 C in the 20th century and is on track for roughly the same amount this century. The big questions are what is causing the warming trend, and will it spiral out of control if we continue pouring sequestered CO2 into the atmosphere.

    The other side loves to paint us "deniers" as denying the fact there is any warming at all. We don't deny that fact. I don't even deny that additional CO2 in the atmosphere exerts an upward forcing on temperature. The whole debate is over the magnitude of projected warming.

  • Is global warming causing more severe winters that are hurting vineyards?

    Best answer: Having grown up in rural South Dakota, farmers and ranchers are always blaming the weather even on really good years. They get lots of government relief so it seems ingrained in them to be continually looking for something to blame for their less than perfect crop. Farming is difficult. It seems to me that this... show more

They get lots of government relief so it seems ingrained in them to be continually looking for something to blame for their less than perfect crop. Farming is difficult. It seems to me that this guy is hedging his bets. It is pretty ironic. It is friggin cold there so I'm a bit surprised they have vineyards and having them worry about warming does seem like sarcasm.

  • What percent of charging for electric cars comes from sources that will not make global warming worse?

    Best answer: Next to zero. Almost everything relies of energy to produce it. Solar cells produced mostly in China aren't carbon neutral and they require extensive mining for the rare earth elements. Wind farms take extensive construction and maintenance. What does it say when some are so committed to a cause that they... show more

  • What impact will ending the tax credit for electric vehicles have on global warming?

    Best answer: It will certainly impact sales. It will make electric vehicles compete in a more fair way. Why should I pay for someone else's car? When you use the government to distort prices, it tends to lead to all sorts of undesirable consequences. There is much in the Senate Bill I like but it is certainly a lost... show more

  • What is the answer to Thomas Sowell's question on global warming?

    Best answer: I've read three books (at least) from Thomas Sowell and I have read his articles quite a bit so I know him better than most. He doesn't talk much about global warming. His book on Black Rednecks and White Liberals was brilliant and interesting. It was largely about history of the slave owners and their... show more
    Best answer: I've read three books (at least) from Thomas Sowell and I have read his articles quite a bit so I know him better than most. He doesn't talk much about global warming. His book on Black Rednecks and White Liberals was brilliant and interesting. It was largely about history of the slave owners and their legacy. Sowell is a black American and the book was an exploration of some his ancestry. Interestingly he argued that much of the "black" culture in the US isn't from Africa but is from the "redneck" culture now deceased in Scotland. https://www.encounterbooks.com/books/bla...

    Sowell is a professor of Economics. He is plain spoken but it would be a mistake to underestimate his intelligence. He is a political conservative and he wouldn't claim to be an expert on the science of global warming but I think he correctly spots a political scam when he sees one. Sowell is correct except I would say that we shouldn't bet "trillions" on global warming predictions.

  • If global warming will flood coastal cities, why can't we just dig the harbors a foot deeper?

    Best answer: Digging out a harbor doesn't displace enough water to change the sea level because the sea is so vast, it only results in a deeper harbor.

    What they do sometimes is dig out a harbor and build up the shoreline with that dirt/sand, but it's not so easy if there's buildings and streets.

  • Is there anything wrong with this argument that nuclear power is necessary to fight global warming?

    Best answer: Germany, Denmark and South Australia have proven that wind and solar are useless and only result in unstable electrical grids and sky high prices, even before we look at the many other downsides they have. Fossil fuels are eventually going to run out. So nuclear is our only sensible option and it is high time we... show more
    Best answer: Germany, Denmark and South Australia have proven that wind and solar are useless and only result in unstable electrical grids and sky high prices, even before we look at the many other downsides they have.
    Fossil fuels are eventually going to run out.
    So nuclear is our only sensible option and it is high time we started researching and developing better intrinsically safe forms of nuclear we already have the technology, all that is lacking is the will to move forward.

  • If sea level rise is only 3mm per year, shouldn't most of North America still be covered with ice?

    Best answer: What do you mean, "still"? Even during the Pleistocene glaciations, only about half of the continent was covered (measured by area, less if measured by N-S extent).

  • If fossil fuel prices will inevitably rise with extraction, and renewable energy is getting cheaper, why must we worry about global warming?

    Best answer: Good point.

    Fossil fuels will price themselves out of the market and "renewables" will be almost free. What could possibly go wrong? The process will drive itself with no need for government intervention.

    Of course, that does depend on your premise being true ...
