    Even if I am to accept that modern technology allows them to measure Global temperature with such precision which I do not by the way; the 1930s temperature mentioned here as the former record for May is well within anyone's margin of error.

    You would never know that by reading the wording of the article though.

    From the opening sentence indicating that warming has returned to North America with a vengeance you would think that the temperature differential was 25 degrees not a fraction of 1 degree.

    This is typical of someone who is pushing a false agenda.

    There is no such thing as a warmist…………………it's an invented term with no meaning, the fact that dictionaries carry this term is ridiculous

    Such is the life of a living language.

    Myself....I think it just saves time. Tagnames are a well worn Lefty tradition.

    I see no reason why conservatives should not begin to take up the torch.

    Climate change is real as it has been happening on Earth for 5 billion years. That said referring to imbeciles as warmist and not imbeciles is not a credit to reality

    The average person exhales roughly 2.5 lbs of carbon dioxide on a daily basis. That means that the human race is responsible for just under 3 billion tons a year of carbon dioxide. That sounds like a lot but in comparison to the Earth's total CO2 Supply it's really tiny. And yet these imbeciles would have us believe that it's contributing towards the melting of the glaciers.

    At the same time I'm reading an article about record warm temperatures in May and experiencing a record cool May are in New England.

    I'm sure that human activities have caused some disruption of the earth's climate Cycles what I'm not sure of is what these idiots want in the final analysis.

    As for polar bears if they all disappeared tomorrow it wouldn't make one damn bit of difference in my life.

    What about rising sea levels?
    "Tangier, the Sinking Island in the Chesapeake
    By Carolyn Kormann

    "June 8, 2018..."

    https://www.newyorker.com/news/disp...pJobID=1420901052&spReportId=MTQyMDkwMTA1MgS2

    "Tangier has lost two-thirds of its land since 1850. This is, in part, because of a ten-thousand-year-old phenomenon known as glacial rebound, which has caused the island to sink a millimetre or two each year.

    "But the more urgent problem is a combination of storm-driven erosion and sea-level rise, which are both increasing as climate change advances; scientists who study the region estimate that sea-level rise is tripling or even quadrupling the rate of land loss.

    "Without climate change, the island would have remained above water for perhaps another century; now the cutoff date is only a few decades away, if not sooner. David Schulte, a marine biologist with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the co-author of a study in Nature’s Scientific Reports on Tangier’s fate, told me, 'They are literally one storm away from being wiped out.'"

    Oh, boy... they would have remained above water for perhaps another 100 years. Now they're only 40 or 50 years away. Wow. Time to totally panic, throw away the baby with the bathwater...

    I prefer the term "glow ball warmitologist."

    "Warmmonger" also works.

    Oh come on now. You know the answer to that.

    Control.

    They want control. They want to be able to say who can and cannot burn fossil fuels. Those who can are the important ones: Al Gore, Clintons, politicians. Those who can't are you and me.

    "Who's Still Fighting Climate Change? The U.S. Military

    "Despite political gridlock over global warming, the Pentagon is pushing ahead with plans to protect its assets from sea-level rise and other impacts. Here's how."

    "NORFOLK, VIRGINIA Ten times a year, the Naval Station Norfolk floods.

    "The entry road swamps.

    "Connecting roads become impassable.

    "Crossing from one side of the base to the other becomes impossible.

    "Dockside, floodwaters overtop the concrete piers, shorting power hookups to the mighty ships that are docked in the world’s largest naval base.

    "All it takes to cause such disarray these days is a full moon, which triggers exceptionally high tides.

    Norfolk station is headquarters of the Atlantic fleet, and flooding already disrupts military readiness there and at other bases clustered around the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, officials say.

    "Flooding will only worsen as the seas rise and the planet warms. Sea level at Norfolk has risen 14.5 inches in the century since World War I, when the naval station was built. By 2100, Norfolk station will flood 280 times a year, according to one estimate by the Union of Concerned Scientists."

    Do you (or the brain-dead parasite in the White House) have any "thoughts" on why sea levels at Norfolk have risen 14.5 inches in the last century?

    In that case I can only wonder why none of our previous Presidents, including Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, Clinton, and Obama haven't done a thing about it?

    Why are you suddenly so concerned now?

    Only one Republican president is sufficiently ignorant to deny the existence of AGW; does that concern you?

    f
    if the Chesapeake were rising then the shoreline would be being lost, which has no bearing on an island sinking.....got that dopey
    There is zero evidence that climate change is caused by humans. sure it's happening, and has been for 5 billion years

    97% of professionals who study climate change disagree.
    What do you know that they don't?

    They tried. But the national pox known as the GOP blocked progress whenever possible. For example, Obama had us join the Paris accord. Trump promptly yanked us out, as demanded by the fossil fuel industries.

    So, it is sinking - the sea is not really rising that much. And its eroding. Its MD environmental rules that prevented them from erecting bulkheads to save it. Which would have protected it from storms, etc.

    That's a STRAIGHT BAREFACED LIE!

    Norfolk is where I live and work and boat and play. Been here my entire life. I know dozens of people both civilian and military that work on that base specifically. I do construction and rehab work on that base and am physically there many days a year and have been for the better part of 30 years both as an employee and an employer. I have a contract right now to work on bldg. A-81 at the PWC.

    I have never seen the ship docks underwater. Ever. It's an old base. Really old with old infrastructure. Sure there are some low streets that flood or hold water after an extended gully washer, a northeaster or hurricane but no more than in downtown Norfolk, Portsmouth, Hampton or Newport News or any of our cities directly on the bay or harbor.

    Wonder why Norfolk Naval Shipyard isn't on you list.......it's only 3 miles up the harbor. Yet no mention of it. The marine terminals in Portsmouth, Norfolk, Newport News. The coal terminals in Newport News. Newport News Shipbuilding. Waterside, Harbor Park baseball stadium, The Marriot, the Omni and all the big hotels in downtown Norfolk and Portsmouth. The Navy depot at Cranny Island. Fort Monroe. Little Creek Amphib base. Fort Story Navy training base. Norshipco, BAE, Colonna and the other 3 or 4 privately owned shipyards. All the thousands of marinas, yacht clubs, condos and private residences in Hampton Roads. I could go on for literally hours listing places on the water here that APPARENTLY are NOT in danger of flooding because of your FAKE ASS assertion of 14.5" of sea rise happening here.

    Why are there no pictures of this "flooding phenomenon" in your links? Curious as well........

    Your links are all based on modeling, suppositions and predictions. False ones I might add.

    In short they're bullshit.

    Yeah.........erosion is a bitch
    Norfolk and Hampton went with rock jetties to protect their vulnerable beaches. Virginia Beach did not and spends millions every few years for sand replenishing
