TL;DR - Humans are not the cause of Global Warming

Quote by The Article

One thing does seem very clear, however; science is only beginning to get a focus on the big picture of global warming. Findings like these tell us it's too early to know for sure if man's impact is affecting things at "alarming rates."

what brothers and sisters? are you talking about Heaven's Gate's farewell thread?

the current argument isn't that people caused global warming, its that human emissions have accelerated the advance of it.

The actual article from MIT is much less biased, much more factual and doesn't say things like "humans are not the cause of global warming lolz".

Pfft, unbiased unschmiased.

Psh, global warming. Everyone knows that it is just another part of the liberal agenda to remove Jesus Christ from his rightful place in the American household.

It certainly doesn't help that we're pumping millions of tons of carbon dioxide, methane and carbon monoxide into our atmosphere daily.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

What causes global warming on other planets?

There are three fundamental flaws in the 'other planets are warming' argument:

1. Not all planets are warming - some are cooling
2. The sun has shown no long term trend since 1950
3. There are explanations for why other planets are warming

Not all planets in the solar system are warming

Only 6 planets or moons out of the 100+ bodies in the solar system have been observed to be warming. On the other hand, Uranus is cooling (Young 2001)
Solar activity isn't increasing

More crucially, the whole theory that a brightening sun is causing global warming falls apart when you consider solar output hasn't risen over the past 30 years (when warming has been highest) according to direct satellite measurements that find no rising trend since 1978, sunspot numbers which have leveled out since 1950, the Max Planck Institute reconstruction that shows irradience has been steady since 1950 and solar radio flux or flare activity which shows no rising trend over the past 30 years. Ironically, it's the sun's close correlation with Earth's temperature that proves it has little to do with the last 30 years of global warming.
So what is causing warming on those other planets?

Of course that begs the question - what's causing warming on other planets? With the exception of Pluto (which is still an enigma to astronomers who recently voted it out of the planet registry in a moment of pique), climate change on other planets are fairly understood:

* Martian climate is primarily driven by dust and albedo and there is little empirical evidence that Mars is showing long term warming. More on Mars...
* Neptune's orbit is 164 years so current brightening is a seasonal response (Neptune's southern hemisphere is heading into summer). More on Neptune...
* Triton's warming is due to the moon approaching an extreme southern summer, a season that occurs every few hundred years.
* Jupiter's storms are fueled by the planet's own internal heat (the sun's energy is 4% the level of solar energy at Earth). When several storms merge into one large storm (eg - Red Spot Jr), the planet loses its ability to mix heat, causing warming at the equator and cooling at the poles. More on Jupiter...
* Pluto's warming consists of two observations 14 years apart noting a difference in atmospheric thickness which implies warming - scientists are unable to explain why yet. But considering Pluto's orbit is equivalent to 248 Earth years, this says nothing about climate change. It's like saying Earth is warming when comparing winter to summer. Plus Pluto is more than 30 times farther away from the Sun than the Earth is. If the Sun were warming up enough to affect Pluto at that vast distance, it would blowtorch the Earth.

This why i don't believe that humans have caused or are causing a great varation in the earths climate. It's our arrogance what leads us to believe that we could influnce the earths climate that greatly. Much more greenhouse gas is realesed naturally by the earth compared to how much humans produce.

Global climate change is nothing new.

The problem is that the cycle is happening too quickly, I've heard 60x faster than natural, but I don't know how accurate that is.

It will certainly help raise our taxes on our energy bills. As if $100 + dollars a month during the winter to stay warm isn't enough.

You realize the government estimate only adds less than $10 a month, right? I mean, you can make that up by not going out to eat one time a month if it's that big of a deal.

Most people probably drop about that much behind the couch over the course of their lives.
Or spend it on things like expensive software for which better/equivalent open source options exist

New tax plan, look behind people's couches.

How absurd. Keeping money I rightfully earned...


Right, I should have been more thoughtful about spending $7000 so someone can feel warm and cozy inside.

Maybe most of you wouldn't miss $7000 because of careless spending (typical liberal/socialist trait) but I prefer to be more conservative about my spending.
