I can not see countries taking sufficient action to halt disastrous climate change, the UK has just started fracking and building a third runway at Heathrow, we are doomed.

....Fortunately many people like living in densely populated areas. This helps mass transit to be more efficient. If everyone lived in some place like Iowa, could you imagine how much more resources would be used?

According to research at the University of Alabama in 2013, climate models indicate "a natural shift to stronger warm El Nino events in the Pacific Ocean might be responsible for a substantial portion of the global warming recorded during the past 50 years."


And also this from the same article;
Recently, scientists discovered at least three to six times more heat-spewing thermal vents along the seafloors where tectonic plates are pulling apart. In 2003, at least nine hydrothermal vents along the Gakkel Ridge in the Arctic Ocean were found. Arctic ice has been melting at a steady pace in recent years and may be due to the warmer than normal ocean waters.

The IPCC report says that at 1.5 C warming from pre-industrial times, the end of times will come.

Given that we have already warmed 1.0 C and have only 0.5 C left to go, and sea level rise has not accelerated, storms and droughts are not getting worse, and the human condition is better than it has ever been, why will an additional 0.5C suddenly make things worse. The earth in greening at an amazing rate, crop yields are at record levels. It seems to me that this 1.0 C of warming has been a boon to people and plants.

How are we doomed? Are the longer growing seasons going to force farmers to work a few more days a year? That's about the only consequence that I can see.

Heathrow needed it. Also, there is nothing wrong with fracking. 'Climate change' is just a buzzword. There is no need to fear it.

Models are not data. Making up numbers is not research. El Nino does not cause the Earth to warm. It is not a new phenomenon.

I started a new Youtube channel and decided to tackle climate change as my first topic, especially considering the recent IPCC report. While not a skeptic, I think most climate scientists make wildly inaccurate predictions. That's what this first video addresses. I welcome and encourage your feedback.

In your linked video you seem to say that the climate models that some scientists use do not include the effects of clouds.

A cursory search shows otherwise.

Maybe start here: https://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/10.1175/JCLI-D-12-00451.1

That was with a google search "clouds climate models"

you'll see where I discussed an experiment that would be designed to show how changing the composition of our atmosphere effects it's ability to absorb and release heat.
..Most computer models haven't verified their null hypothesis. This would explain why they're so inconsistent. It shows that even scientists disagree with what influence different variables have on our atmosphere.
..And since some heat is coming from the sea floor, they need to find out how much. The more water warms the less heat it can absorb during the day.

There is no heat coming from the sea floor. The Sun produces the bulk of ocean heating.

While true, the difference is very insignificant. The Earth is just a speck against the Sun's output.

I was just reading the paper and there was a news story about that very issue;

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/oct/26/rising-sea-levels-will-claim-homes-around-english-coast-report-warns

The new report from the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) said existing government plans to "hold the line" in many places – building defences to keep shores in their current position – were unaffordable for a third of the country's coast. Instead, the CCC said, discussions about the "hard choices" needed must be started with communities that will have to move inland.

"There genuinely will be homes that it will not be possible to save," said Baroness Brown, chair of the CCC's adaptation committee. "The current approach is not fit for purpose. This report is really a wake-up call to the fact that we can't protect the whole English coast to today's standard."

She added: "We could see as much as a metre of sea level rise before the end of the century, so within the lifetime of today's children, and that has a major impact on coastal flooding and erosion." Prof Jim Hall, another member of the committee, said: "We are not prepared."

Coastal errosion is and always has been a problem.

If the sea level rises this geanerally has a very slight reduction in the effectiveness of wave action on cliffs as the capacity for the sea to pick up rocks and throw them against the cliff is reduced.

Where low lying land is protected by sea defences these will have to be improved. The cost of that improvement is slight. Often the cost of doing the initial work for the sea defence is costly.

Given that you are convinced that the increase in sea level by possibly 1m by 2100 (although it shows no sign of doing so) is going to be bad how about you select some place on the coast which we can look at, like we look at London, and see how much extra work is needed.

Take, for example, the place pictired in the Guardian's piece. The house shown falling off the cliff has done so due to the action of waves against the coast in a place where the rock is just loose dirt sub soil. The place errodes very fast.

The soft cliff is 8m high or so. The level at which the waves hit is largely irrelavent. The process will be the same if it is only 7m above the waves.

To protect such a place it would be necessary to build decent protective structures along the coast. The decision to do so has been made that it is too expensive.

Personally If I lived there i would be looking into sorting out some sort of defences under my own inititive.

Well the challenge you set was to find something that indicated that it would be a problem. The CCC seems to think it will be a problem I have no idea how to convince Tim the plumber that it will be a problem.

You seem to have some interesting ideas about coastal erosion. However I am quite confident that if sea levels rise it would undermine cliffs faster.

I have no doubt if you had a coastal property and you tried implementing a jerry built coastal defense in the manner that you have previously suggested in the UK you would end up in court.

Sure they work, for their intended missions. Trouble is, it's not possible to measure the absolute temperature of anything using a satellite. Satellites measure light, not temperature. The emissivity of Earth is unknown.

Define "define".


LOL!

Good reply!

Not really. He is evading the question just like you do.

Because you are refusing to define 'global warming' or 'climate change'. You just keep using them as buzzwords.

Coastal errosion is and always has been a problem.

If the sea level rises this geanerally has a very slight reduction in the effectiveness of wave action on cliffs as the capacity for the sea to pick up rocks and throw them against the cliff is reduced.

Where low lying land is protected by sea defences these will have to be improved. The cost of that improvement is slight. Often the cost of doing the initial work for the sea defence is costly.

Given that you are convinced that the increase in sea level by possibly 1m by 2100 (although it shows no sign of doing so) is going to be bad how about you select some place on the coast which we can look at, like we look at London, and see how much extra work is needed.

Take, for example, the place pictired in the Guardian's piece. The house shown falling off the cliff has done so due to the action of waves against the coast in a place where the rock is just loose dirt sub soil. The place errodes very fast.

The soft cliff is 8m high or so. The level at which the waves hit is largely irrelavent. The process will be the same if it is only 7m above the waves.

To protect such a place it would be necessary to build decent protective structures along the coast. The decision to do so has been made that it is too expensive.

1, That you can't actually show a specific place where there would be any sort of problem that would require the local council there to spend more on sorting it out than the traffic light budget should ring alarm bells with you.

There is a reason you can't do this.

Appealing to vague authority will not change this.

2, If you live on the coast and you create sea defences there is little the planning department can do. It is after all not on land.

..In a way it is. And how itn works for Tim the plumber is when Tim asks for an environmental impact statement it makes his request seem reasonable.
..Tim the plumber also considers the barriers the Netherlands built cost more than moving their ports. If people accept the research about Greenland's glaciers, since 2002, it's been losing an estimated 269 billion tons of ice each year. This year, however, may be an exception.
..With me, I think that's what we need to be watching. And it will have a significant impact on sea levels.

Eh???

1, As I explained ITN does not work for me. I never said he did your very very poor reading skills are pathetic.

2, When have we discussed the dykes in the Neitherlands? I have no idea what cost they are compaired to building a new pot. I don't care. The dykes are there to protect farmland generally. The ports are in places with very extensive road and rail connections.

3, Greenland's ice mass balance is an issue that requires you to be able to do very simple maths. I see no sign of that ability.

Eh?? again.....

I have an A level in physics and one in maths and another in geography. "A" levels are taken at 17/18 as the entrance examinations for universities.

If you want to do the basic stuff of adding up the amount of precipitation that falls on Geenland and compair it to the net outflow of water and ice that comes out of the place then we can do that. It will be a great eye opener for you.

The Committee on Climate change is a vague authority? I am confident that they have a better understanding of the impacts of Climate change then me and I am confident I have a better understanding then you.
