They'll just wander through people's yards willy-nilly
Not where you are "allowed" to hunt them.

It is a bad idea to feed and chill with bears and allow them to become comfortable around people's houses.
The same is true for deer.

"Since 1896, when Svante Arrhenius first postulated the theory of global warming due to carbon dioxide, control of carbon dioxide has been considered the most effective method of slowing warming," Jacobson says in an interview. "Whereas carbon dioxide clearly causes most global warming, control of shorter-lived warming constituents, such as black carbon, should have a faster effect on slowing warming, which is the conclusion I have drawn from this study. The Kyoto Protocol of 1997 does not even consider black carbon as a pollutant to control with respect to global warming."

The reason the issue of diesel versus gasoline is important, says Jacobson, is that, in Europe, one of the major strategies for satisfying the Kyoto Protocol is to promote further the use of diesel vehicles and specifically to provide a greater tax advantage for diesel. Tax laws in all European Union countries, except the United Kingdom, currently favor diesel, thereby inadvertently promoting global warming, Jacobson says. Further, some countries, including Sweden, Finland, Norway, and the Netherlands, also tax fuels based on their carbon content. These taxes also favor diesel, he notes, since diesel releases less carbon per kilometer [mile] than does gasoline. Nevertheless, the small amount of black carbon and organic matter emitted by diesel may warm the atmosphere more over 100 years than the additional carbon dioxide emitted by gasoline.

If you only knew the number and extent of wealthy people, or powerful people, who use drugs ... and do the most ubelievable batshit fucking insane shit ...

Judges, cops, politicians, NASA engineers, nuclear engineers, Arab billionaires, high ranking religious leaders, business men, cult leaders, it goes on and on and on

Science / Re: Size of Larsen C iceberg calculated
You know, just because you type words out, that doesn't make them true.  I posted official data (and linked to the sources), just as I always have.  I find it most strange that the exact region where this huge ice berg just calved is the one region with the most cooling at the south pole.
 
The crack was first noticed in the 60s, and with rising temps there it is reasonable to think changes might influence the ice sheet.  But to find that it's actually been cooling there (for decades) was a surprise.

Calm down
It is baffling that someone who seems hyper-reluctant to make inferences from data should so habitually make inferences that bear no relation to the data.

But is it evidence?

Science / Re: Size of Larsen C iceberg calculated
Could it possibly be that F X is countering these arguments with data?  A wild concept I know but still - looks like that's what he's doing to me.

Why is evidence that the area is cooling relevant to the topic of the ice-shelf detaching?
Nobody actually knows. We dio know that in 1998 the cycle there changed, and the same area that showed the most warming has been cooling.  The ocean around the region also has cooled, both are evident using the GISS image.

But over the past two decades, cold easterly winds have increased in strength, resulting in a cooling trend. There's been little change in the rest of Antarctica, says Turner.

What's most surprising is that Turner's team conclude that the previous warming seen in the Antarctic Peninsula cannot be clearly attributed to global warming. Data from ice cores suggest it is still - just - within the range of natural variability seen over the past 1000 years.

Our results also indicate that the cooling initiated in 1998/1999 has been most significant in the N and NE of the AP and the South Shetland Islands (> 0.5 °C between the two last decades), modest in the Orkney Islands, and absent in the SW of the AP. This recent cooling has already impacted the cryosphere in the northern AP, including slow-down of glacier recession, a shift to surface mass gains of the peripheral glacier and a thinning of the active layer of permafrost in northern AP islands.

The cooling trend is often attributed to ozone loss, but that's also not really known with certainty.

That things have become colder is no longer a dispute.  The growing New Zealand glaciers are also evidence of a cooling trend.

Even more disturbing is that the trend for the region where this horror is happening shows cooling, not warming.

If you can't understand the evidence, then you are an idiot.

If you can't grasp the phrase " the trend for the region where this horror is happening shows cooling, not warming", then you are hopeless.

Global warming can do anything.  Even be a pirate.

Science / Re: Size of Larsen C iceberg calculated
Ya I don't know of any serious scientist who claims this event is down to AGW and the hysterics following earlier ice shelf collapses seems to have died down as people realise that ice shelves are transient features.  Still, that doesn't stop the usual lunatics in the lying MSM from hyping this latest one up as global warming and deliberately misinforming the public.  I guess they are simply incapable of helping themselves.
It seems so at times.  The brainwashing is strong in some.

Science / Re: Size of Larsen C iceberg calculated
I have no clue why F X is posting those graphs and maps.
Then you are some kind of blind idiot.  I wrote the area was cooling, and then showed scientific data to explain why I wrote that.  If you can't understand this, stop posting.

Record cold, and record ice mass gain.  It's almost like colder means more snow.

Oh right.  That's how physics works.

"In Greenland July this year has been the coldest ever. That has left climate catastrophists struggling to explain it."

BAZ comments that the -33°C reading earlier this month was "the coldest July temperature ever recorded in the northern hemisphere", smashing the previous record of 30.7°C.

The BAZ adds that also the "ice cover has grown strongly over almost all of Greenland".

But this has been ignored, as the Switzerland-based daily also bravely writes that "most journalists and media leaders are active or passive members of the green-socialist Climate Church and the new religion of the post-Christian western world" and acknowledge only things that fit their world narrative. This likely explains why there's been no word about the record cold in Greenland. Why? The BAZ comments:

It casts the central prophesy of a continuous and ultimately lethal global warming, for which we are ourselves to blame, into question."

I'm not sure what the game is here.
After 8 years, I actually believe you.   You are not just playing dumb.

It is baffling that an event that has happened many many times (and has to happen) is viewed as something unusual or dangerous.

Even more disturbing is that the trend for the region where this horror is happening shows cooling, not warming.

Nothing screams tolerance and freedom like a bunch of armed left wing good old boys.  George Washington would also approve.

"the armed leftwing group that wants to stamp out fascism"

Lenin and Mao would totally support this movement. Armed leftwing groups are the backbone of any revolution.
