Climate Change - Latest

Scientists in Finland found "practically no anthropogenic [man-made] climate change" after a series of studies.

“During the last hundred years the temperature increased about 0.1°C because of carbon dioxide. The human contribution was about 0.01°C”, the Finnish researchers bluntly state in one among a series of papers.

This has been collaborated by a team at Kobe University in Japan, which has furthered the Finnish researchers' theory.

You can get the paper here:

No Experimental Evidence for the Significant Anthropogenic Climate Change

https://arxiv.org/pdf/1907.00165.pdf


This will probably be ignored as it doesnt fit the political view.

It also doesn't fit 99% of the other evidence or informed opinion. I'll also add that the paper is not peer-reviewed either so we need to take anything it says with a pinch of salt until it's subjected to scrutiny.

So these scientists are right and all the others wrong? I know some will be right and others wrong but it’s not like we are seeing any extremes of weather or glaciers retreating is it.

So let's take a chance and go with the study mentioned - it's not as if anything serious could happen if 50 years on people say 'Oops - we got it wrong'!

Re: Climate Change - Latest

Perhaps having an open mind and reading the actual report might help some.

Any criticism with facts is just ignored because it doesn't follow the agreed line. The report actually has been peer reviewed and endorsed by scientists in Japan, but let us ignore that.

The key point is the earth's climate does change - of course, it does, it always has and will continue to change regardless of what we humans do.

But, it's more down to nature than man!........ but that cant be said.

The UK targetting zero carbon emissions in such a short timeframe will cost this country ŁTrillions! A bit more than the figure on the Brexit bus but that's one big legacy Parliament simply voted through recently. It will do diddly-squat to solve climate change - but heh-oh aren't we great and green just look at us. Hmmmm!

Do you also believe in a flat earth?, that the moon landings didn't happen?, that vaccines are a conspiracy by the pharma companies?, that 9/11 was a Mossad/CIA stitch up?, that the two Russians who visited Salisbury last year were really there to see the Cathedral?, that evolution is an unproven theory?, that God created the Earth 6000 years ago and placed fossils in the rocks to fool us?, that Elvis is still alive?, that smoking doesn't cause cancer?

I'm guessing you'll say no to those - but the argument for climate change denial is no stronger than that for any of those things.

The AGW hypothesis is proven beyond all reasonable doubt Dave - you're just in denial. The paper you quoted is a long way from being a definitive work. Neither author is an expert on climate science and the paper is not peer reviewed. The sources are scant and mostly refer to their own previous papers. I'd bet that there will be detailed rebuttals of it by the wider community over the next few days.


If you really want to understand why the sceptics are wrong, this is an interesting article - https://www.scientificamerican.com/a...ics-are-wrong/

Re: Climate Change - Latest

Seems the majority here are happy to pay the Łtrillion committed by the UK parliament to get to zero emissions - for what benefit?

Last time I checked we create less than 2% of global CO2 emissions in the world so our "gesture" will achieve what?

Dave,

Regardless of the source of the climate change we are currently seeing, the economic benefits to the country are huge which is more the reason that the greening of our energy supply has been agreed so readily by our government. The security of having home grown energy, in the form of renewables reduces our reliance on imported energy from Holland, France, Poland, Norway and Russia. The increased job opportunities are also a boost to the economy which should allow the UK to ride the storm that Brexit may create, so yes I’m happy to see it spent.

The other work that has gone alongside the greening of the supplies is the massive energy reduction due to the newer technologies such as LED lighting - the economic benefits of this are massive - even Nigel Lawson agrees with this being good for the country, even though he is a strong anti climate change advocate.

So while the human element can be dismissed if you wish to, it really doesn’t matter - it’s money well spent!

I'm happy to pay (but not for all of it

Call it insurance. The penalty for getting it wrong is massive disruption of the World's climate, with the associated effect on the economies and mass extinction. The penalty for getting it grossly wrong could result in the extinction of humanity!

But heigh-ho - let's take a chance, eh!

Re: Climate Change - Latest

Can someone please explain why if we reduce our 2% to zero the climate will stop changing when everyone else carries on.

But is that a reason to continue to pollute the planet we live on? Surely nothing wrong in trying to clean up our act.
