Re: Why Climate Change Won't Matter in 20 Years

strangley idiots think anything any other idiot writes, is right uf it supports thier ignirant view.

yes the world changes over time, and many alternative fuel or energy sources will be investigated.

funny that uber is mentioned as the reason we have taxi regulations is because we had unregulated ubers that needed regulations to control all the bad things the unregulated busibess created.

too bad the writer has such a short sited view of history

Re: Why Climate Change Won't Matter in 20 Years

Uber is part of climate change? Must be as it is part of the thread.

Who would have thought?

Uber -> cars -> fossil fuel -> CO2 -> climate change.

Quite logical really. ;-)

Re: Why Climate Change Won't Matter in 20 Years

Sitting here in New England's new record low temperatures (-8 degrees F), I'm beginning to realize that this entire Global alarming/Climate change stuff in nothing more than thinly veiled propaganda for the Degrowth movement. The movement that wants us all to be happy, beaten down communists living in grass huts, growing rice and living off the earth.

I think China already tried this social experiment back in the 1960's. Was is somewhere around 20-50 million who died? Over 100 million? Something like that... but still not enough to keep todays environmentalists happy. People bad, nature good.

I'd prefer a departure cancellation rather than a delay.

Not true. When the thread began, it was 60 degrees F here in New England. Today started out a -8 degrees F, yesterday with the wind chill factored in it was -40 F. I consider that a significant change.
It would have been a good weekend for picking cherries.

Just a tick under 70f here at noon. Expecting glacier formation to begin any moment now. :-)

Actually my mind has morphed throughout this thread. I have found that science is rather more unsettled on the whole GW/ GC fronts than I first thought ( personally I don't believe the alarmist parts of it either way. ). Also I don't believe that most of the losses of Arctic sea ice is gw I actually believe a good portion of it is due to icebreaker activity in the Arctic ocean.

That's an ad hominem attack, and therefore neither useful nor becoming.

Please do make your counter-arguments. It's not evident to me where the flaws in their arguments are.

Re: Why Climate Change Won't Matter in 20 Years

No wonder people are fleeing CF for other sites; every thread eventually turns into an argument.
This thread was doomed from the first page, but the CF model obviously is based on post numbers and clicks, not useful content.

Nope. This thread has been two dozen bored sailors having a lighthearted discussion on a controversial topic whilst awaiting the Spring thaw. No name calling, in fact.... a few of us of different viewpoints plan on getting together sometime this year, possibly at the boat show">Annapolis boat show to discuss sailing stuff over a few beers.

Everyone will be invited. Friendships were forged and contacts made... Exactly what this forum is supposed to be all about.

Please try to extract the positive rather than assume the negative.

For every argument you show me...I will show you why its not an argument and if you argue that fact, I will show you 10 arguments contradicting that argument. So there!
