Earth's climate has been changing for 4 plus billion years and will continue to do so. And humans have existed for how long?

75,000 in the most modern form
maybe 200,000 for ones who looked like us but werenot quite like us
2-3 million years if you count the early versions

but 7.5 billion and growing of us sure can effect a planet

just watch the ice go away

CO2 does not kill people. Pollution does.

A good way to fight global warming would be to slow down China's economy. As their GDP drops, their coal usage drops, and so will CO2 emissions.

What Obama has been doing is apply this principle to the USA! When the GDP was already less than half that of China. And our air and water quality is much cleaner.

Trump approach in dealing with China may have a greater impact on the environment if we stop buying their crap, and produce our own goods with higher standards for the environment. Sure it will cost more, but who cares if people earn more and pay less taxes...Plus quality products that last many years would have less environmental impact than junk we keep buying over and over.

100% Of US Warming Is Due To NOAA Data Tampering | The Deplorable Climate Science Blog

Quote:
Climate Central just ran this piece, which the Washington Post picked up on. They claimed the US was “overwhelmingly hot” in 2016, and temperatures have risen 1.5F since the 19th century.

The first problem with their analysis is that the US had very little hot weather in 2016. The percentage of hot days was below average, and ranked 80th since 1895. Only 4.4% of days were over 95F, compared with the long term average of 4.9%. Climate Central is conflating mild temperatures with hot ones.

They also claim US temperatures rose 1.5F since the 19th century, which is what NOAA shows.

The problem with the NOAA graph is that it is fake data. NOAA creates the warming trend by altering the data. The NOAA raw data shows no warming over the past century

The adjustments being made are almost exactly 1.5F, which is the claimed warming in the article.

LOL I started to say something about that earlier but the trolls will insist it is harmful pollutants because they want it to be so.

It also says the elites live lives very different from ours and that they intend to keep it that way. I don't blame them, really.

They do, however, blame us.

Algore has a 7000 sq ft home and a private jet but he insists on telling us we need to cut back energy usage for the sake of the planet.

I don't expect Oblamo will be riding a bike and living in a mud hut now that he's been fired. Those golf courses take a lot of grooming!

He may not own, but uses private jets for transportation. As to his house:

The report says that Gores house used 221,000 kwh of electricity in 2006, more than 20 times the national average of 10,656 kwh. The report says the natural gas usage of Gores home is high as well, and that the Gores spent more than $30,000 in combined electricity and natural gas bills in 2006.

Gore isn't quite as green as he's led the world to believe - USATODAY.com

Fact Check: Is Al Gore's mansion a lot less green than George Bush's ranch house?

His political career crashed, and he's riding the "Climate Change Gravy Train"
