Martians and Global Warming.

Completely stolen from Tony Heller. Amazing the consensus that developed over 20 years.





No one doubts the canals....there's a consensus.










Even as late as 1965, these hoaxes are hard to shake once people believe them.




Oh wait....what killed them off? Global warming!!

It sucks that you are getting your global warming news from the same sources that brought you the Martian news.

So you're equating the New York Times and the Enquirer?

You're probably right.

About those rising sea levels......

Sea levels are falling


That’s right, according NASA, sea levels are going DOWN! This is big news. How come the media hasn’t mentioned it?
________________________________
NASA satellite sea level observations for the past 24 years show that – on average – sea levels have been rising 3.4 millimeters per year. That’s 0.134 inches, about the thickness of a dime and a nickel stacked together, per year.

I clicked and zoomed on the above chart as NASA suggested, and obtained a closeup screen shot of sea levels from Jan 2016 to March 2017. This clearly shows the decline.

Wow. That is, like, super super dumb. There are so many things wrong with that "analysis." I'll give goose the first crack at guessing what 2 of them are.

Trying to keep politics off Beaumont.......but people would have thought this was "settled science" too.

A growing number of researchers think that the sun is actually larger than commonly thought.

I'm glad we have people to pin this stuff down.

So we can't precisely measure the Sun that's in the sky every day but you people believe they can predict the weather for the next 100 years.

the same folks questioning science never question it when it can save a spouse, child or grandchild. 

That 100 years from now logic gets forgotten then.

The true cost of warming.....not much.

Climate Change Isn’t the End of the World

To arrive at a wise policy response, we first need to consider how much economic damage climate change will do. Current models struggle to come up with economic costs commensurate with apocalyptic political rhetoric. Typical costs are well below 10% of gross domestic product in the year 2100 and beyond.

That’s a lot of money—but it’s a lot of years, too. Even 10% less GDP in 100 years corresponds to 0.1 percentage point less annual GDP growth. Climate change therefore does not justify policies that cost more than 0.1 percentage point of growth. If the goal is 10% more GDP in 100 years, pro-growth tax, regulatory and entitlement reforms would be far more effective.

Yes, the costs are not evenly spread. Some places will do better and some will do worse. The American South might be a worse place to grow wheat; Southern Canada might be a better one. In a century, Miami might find itself in approximately the same situation as the Dutch city of Rotterdam today.

But spread over a century, the costs of moving and adapting are not as imposing as they seem. Rotterdam’s dikes are expensive, but not prohibitively so. Most buildings are rebuilt about every 50 years. If we simply stopped building in flood-prone areas and started building on higher ground, even the costs of moving cities would be bearable. Migration is costly. But much of the world’s population moved from farms to cities in the 20th century. Allowing people to move to better climates in the 21st will be equally possible. Such investments in climate adaptation are small compared with the investments we will regularly make in houses, businesses, infrastructure and education.

You can't seem to grasp what climate change is all about. Rather, I suspect you dont want to. And, to paraphrase one of your own, who has said a number of times: "Even if we're wrong about climate change, all we've done is help clean up the planet for our grandchildren." - Sen. John McCain

The administration's new national security strategy does not acknowledge climate change, which is contrary to several papers produced by the DoD.

It is interesting that among the nearly 40 sections of the NDAA Trump contested in a signing statement, he did not contest the section addressing climate change.
