And it has taken natural events such as el Nino into account.

No doubt. No controversy.

Just fact.

So Stench Skunk and Tommy can stick this up their arses.

Maybe it was, the only thing I can say that the temperature around my location hardly reached normal summer temps and the winter was is so far is a cold one - with snow. I would guess that if people don't actually experience a warmer climate where they are they just could be a bit a suspicious of the fcats and figures.

Maybe hand shandy can tell us when these records began...?


Compared to how long humans have been on the planet...?


And then maybe he could tell us how accurate and geographically widespread the measurements are now, compared to 50 years ago, 100 years ago, and 150 years ago...!?


And then maybe he can explain why scientific research has shown that over the majority of the last 8000 years, the temp has been warmer or as warm as it is now...!?

No one bothered to tell Manchester to warm up. 
2017 was miserable, apart from a few warm sunny days around April, and a hotter spell in June, May, July and August were cloudy and cool.

That's why the discussion these days is on accelerated "climate change"...

Where "global warming" and "local cooling events" are actually two sides of the same coin...

"Global warming" is concerned with accelerated rates of rising average temperatures over the last couple of centuries;    whereas more localised and short term warming and cooling weather events are only part of the longer term patterns..

And all the while, the ice caps are gradually shrinking, the glaciers are disappearing, winters are shorter and warmer, and agriculture, fishing and forestry are having to adapt faster to ever-changing conditions.

And many countries keep on cutting down forests at a much faster rate than they replant them..

Stop deflecting, Tommy, and debate the actual facts.

It hasn't though, Tommy --  you simply keep on 'cherry picking' nonsense to fit your denialist agenda...

Important to know the facts, to consider the accuracy of these facts, and also to consider the perspective & context etc...


And what I say about last 8000 years is true... check it out for yourself...!


Put up a graph showing different if you can...?

As I said,Didge, my link proves without doubt global warming IS msn made. Tommy is flailing around in the swamp of his own stupidity, vainly trying to justify his now rather ludicrous stance.

I have posted the FACTUAL AND SCIENTIFIC link.
Tommy needs to crayon in some lines on a piece of loo paper to counter it.

Really, the two best ways to gauge the effects of global warming on any particular region are to look at when the seasons begin and end, and to look at plant and animal species migrating in and out.

Winter has been getting shorter every year in Texas, and often milder. Last year we barely had a winter. This season, we didn't get a day with a high temperature below 50 until Christmas Eve. Today's high is going to be 72.

The familiar Texas armadillo is being spotted as far north as Kansas -- at least 500 miles north of its original habitat.

Meant to add, whatever temperature it is today is practically meaningless. You have to look at the length of seasons.

Texas, wasn't the armadillo's original habitat either, and it moved here long before global warming "started".

Climate change is not man made and we can't stop it, its happened before humans in their present form ever lit a campfire , although I don't dispute we are adding to the problem.
18,000 or so years ago a lot of the planet was covered in ice, humans barely survived. In Roman times, in Britain anyway grapes were grown in the north, in 800 and something there were about 30 years or so of cold wet weather, in Tudor times the Thames froze enough for fairs to be held on the ice etc.
Some of this might have been due to volcanoes ie the cold dark wet times but the warmer  periods, how are they accounted for, the population of the workld was  much less so it wasn't the  carbon doixide from camp fires, industrialisation had yet to come in the distant future.

Idea

Irrespective of what the non-scientists are stating and mis-representing in everyday conversations, or what the polluters themselves are lying about in their regular propaganda releases, the real world scientists and researchers aren't claiming that "climate change is totally man made"...

What they are pointing out, time and again, against well-orchestrated mining and oil company-funded lobbying, is that increasing industrial activity and pollution (especially carbon rich fossil fuel emissions, and food production wastes..), allied with rampant de-forrestation and messing up the oceans, over these last couple of centuries, is accelerating the rate of climate change globally..

As seen with rising average temperatures, shifting rainfall patterns, extended droughts, more severe winter storms, more frequent cyclone and hurricane activity, and fiercer bushfires.

If mankind doesn't clean up its act over the next couple of decades, plus greatly extend tree--planting and reforrestation efforts, then humanity may not even be here in another 2,000 years,
when the next long-term cyclical "cooling period" will come around..


The planet will survive for a few billion more years, as it has done several times before -- but any remnants of mankind remaining then may well be back living in caves...

Winter has been getting shorter every year in Texas, and often milder. Last year we barely had a winter. This season, we didn't get a day with a high temperature below 50 until Christmas Eve. Today's high is going to be 72.

The familiar Texas armadillo is being spotted as far north as Kansas -- at least 500 miles north of its original habitat.

Texas, wasn't the armadillo's original habitat either, and it moved here long before global warming "started".

Technically, the current long-term upward warming trend in global temp's "started" roughly 10,000 years ago, at the end of the last proper serious Ice Age (none of Tommy's bullshit "mini ice age" propaganda --  as those short-term abnormal  cooling periods were not genuine ice ages..).

Literally, we are still at the "tail end" of that last ice age (as witnessed with the ice caps, and remaining glaciers),  where the next natural long term "cooling period" would have been due in another 2,000 to 2200 years, when long term trends would have then been downwards over a few thousand years into the next genuine long term ice age.   Current accelerating climate change rates though, now means that allowances, adaptations and corrections have to happen soon, or humanity may not be around by then..


Two things are of immediate and urgent importance with current global climate --  First off,  sharply accelerated global warming, due largely to man's increasing industrial activity over the past few centuries, along with increasing urbanisation, fossil-fuelled transportation a d more intensive farming practices..

And secondly, increasing deforestation and increasing damage to the oceans' phytoplankton --  removing and slowly reducing the two largest natural carbon sinks,  while increasing the amount of bare earth and concrete available to soak up solar radiation.  And then there's the part that trees play in generating rainfall and circulating water, as well as shading the ground..  


Over 25% of the world's tree cover has been removed through mans' activities, just over the last couple of centuries alone...

So,  even if the worse predictions don't eventuate, at least it won't be wasted money --  as man has already polluted and stuffed up the Earth to such extent, that it is already way overdue for a bit of a cleanup and restoration..

And if the worse does come to pass, than the descendants of the denialists' corner with the likes of Tommy, Maddog, vintage and Smelly' will be cursing their ancestors for arguing against reality, and effectively destroying mankinds' future on this planet.

You know what? Fuck off, because Didge is thinking a lot more clearly than you. You just believe whatever you want to believe. It's probably really nice, driving toward the edge of a cliff and being able to tell yourself you're perfectly safe.

To keep warm, remember to always have sufficient fluids inside you. Attend to thirst promptly. Cos ...

You can never get really warm when dehydrated. Think of your blood vessels as a network of pipes in a central heating system - they need enough fluid inside them, to spread heat from the boiler to outer areas. Without water in the radiators the central heating can't function.

People always say ''have warm drinks'' to fend off hypothermia ... but even a cold drink is better than nothing at all.

I’m happy to report that it’s only 7.2 degrees Celsius here today and it’s bloody lovely. Had the doors open for some fresh air. Sad to report that Mr. C’s golf game was broken off after 9 holes. Sad 2017  WAS the hottest on record. 3489511464

It's pretty warm here today, but a few days ago it was so cold that Texas used 5% more electricity than it had ever used before. Thankfully, we had no rolling brownouts like they do in California. There are 3 electrical grids in the US. Texas has its own so we don't suffer when other regions screw up. Wink
