Thread Name: BS: Met Office Proves Manmade Global Warming
Subject: RE: BS: Met Office Proves Manmade Global Warming
However, we have accelerated global warming and the influence of man is the cause of the acceleration. That is not a moot point, it is just a fact. Not there for political or economic argument,
Too true, Steamin' Willie.
There again political & economic arguments are not the point. Those have only anything to do with convincing people what mitigating action to take.
Unfortunately the matter is still open to scientific argument (even if you do believe that stating that it is a moot point will prevent anyone taking an oppsing view). Those who are paid by the Global Warming side of the argument have proven themselves blinkered. Even if you do believe all they say, is Global Warming automatically bad?
Only a few years ago scientists were telling us we were heading for a new Ice Age. Perhaps we have only just managed to avoid that by increased warming. Time will tell.
I certainly don't have all the answers, but I doubt that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has all the answers either. And I don't believe that they are prepared to look at all the questions!
