    More Climate Change Facepalm Comment
    Gregory Morris, 12/3/09 2:48:11 pm
    I'm not a "believer" or a "denier" of Anthropogenic Global Cooling Global Warming Climate Change. I'm just a skeptic. Anyone who isn't a skeptic is clearly more interested in the religion of anthropogenic climate change rather than the actual science. Science requires skepticism, so the only scientists I trust are skeptics. Duh.

    That being said, based on the research that has been done, the earth seems to be getting warmer. There is some compelling evidence that the activities of human beings have some effect on the global climate. Some of these studies are "good science". More than a few have also been shoddy, outrageous, and pseudo-scientific attempts to "prove" the "facts" of global climate change. For instance, Al Gore's Nobel prize winning PowerPoint presentation/movie, which was based primarily on now-debunked research, yet which still sees airtime on cable TV. The people who push their bogus politics-driven science are charlatans who ought to be shunned by the rest of the scientific community, plain and simple. Even scientists who agree with Al Gore ought to be critical of the politicization of scientific discovery.

    However, there are scientists out there who are doing good research. Even many scientists who are "true believers" still do good, valid research. For instance, there's a group at Rutgers using aquatic robots to collect temperature info from otherwise hard-to-reach spots. This is extremely important information collection which will undoubtedly increase the accuracy of future climate models. I'm glad they are doing it. Collecting information using verifiable techniques is good science.

    However, it makes my ass twitch when I see a supposed journalist call this robo-fish-thermometer a "weapon against climate change". A WEAPON!!! That has got to be the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Obviously the people who are deploying these robots encourage this kind of talk. Buzz helps win grants.

    But seriously, folks. Cut it out. It is a goddamn yellow swimmy thermometer thing, not a "weapon".

    If you think strictly in terms of literal heating of the earth, it's obvious that humans are increasing the temperature. Let's face it, if you add up all the heat generated by all the cars and electronics and furnaces and AC units and power plants etc etc etc, we have to be warming things up. Dad wasn't kidding when he yelled at us kids to shut the door so we wouldn't be heating the whole neighborhood.

    Now, how much of a warming is that? Beats me. Might be a significant portion of any warming that's taking place. Then again, maybe not.

    When there's evidence of warming, and evidence of cooling, which one do you believe? As the earth's land masses continue their slow dance around the planet, there are always going to be changes in climate caused by that alone. It's enough to cause warming in one area and cooling in another.

    Now we hear that the less-thick spot (it's not a "hole" and never was) in the ozone layer is getting thicker and that could be causing warming. Seems like sometimes you just can't win.
