|Impact Of Climate Change15-03-2016 12:31|
|Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time (i.e., decades to millions of years). Climate change may refer to a change in average weather conditions, or in the time variation of weather around longer-term average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. Certain human activities have also been identified as significant causes of recent climate change, often referred to as global warming. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Climate_change)|

Show of hands...who is gullible enough to buy this crap?
1. What constitutes a weather "pattern"? I certainly hope there is some specific pattern that constitutes a "weather pattern" otherwise it becomes a meaningless term that can be arbitrarily applied, or not applied, to arrive at any desired predetermined conclusion.
2. Which statistical distribution is the one that determines "climate change"? I hope it's not the case that just any statistical distribution can be used to make the determination because that means that any formula can be applied to achieve any desired predetermined conclusion.
3. Why must the time period in question be one that is so far in the future that we cannot verify the veracity of the WACKY claims in any short term? Why must the entire premise remain unfalsifiable?

1. Why use the word "climate"? If you are speaking about weather change then why not simply call it "weather change"? Clearly weather changes and that's what you're discussing. I don't see where the word "climate" comes into play. What is the "global climate" anyway?
2. If the basis for measure is itself subjective, i.e. what constitutes an extreme weather event, then all conclusions become based on subjective opinion and not on falsifiable science.
3. What is "average weather"? Could you give me an example? What was last week's average weather, globally? If you can't say for what it was last week, how are you going to say what it is over, say, thirty years or a thousand?

That has yet to be seen. You must first explain what "climate" is and judging by the looks of it, you aren't doing a very good job. Thus far you have described it as unspecified mathematical manipulation of undefined yet subjective weather change "average condition" numbers that don't seem to exist in the first place.
What are "climate's" units of measure? The same as weather?

Nope. Same problem. No one has ever identified a scientific explanation for causes of unspecified/undefined effects.
Oh. You have only Wikipedia? No authoritative sources?
Global Warming: The preferred religion of the scientifically illiterate.
Ceist - I couldn't agree with you more. But when money and religion are involved, and there are people who value them above all else, then the lies begin. - trafn
You are completely misunderstanding their use of the word "accumulation"! - Climate Scientist.
The Stefan-Boltzman equation doesn't come up with the correct temperature if greenhouse gases are not considered - Hank
:*sigh* Not the "raw data" crap. - Leafsdude
IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist
As per the researches The primary causes of climate change is the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal and oil, which release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere—mainly carbon dioxide. Other kind of human activities, such as deforestation and agriculture is also contribute to the propogation of greenhouse gases that cause climate change.While some of quantities of these gases are a naturally happening and becomes a critical part of Earth's temperature control system, the atmospheric magnitude of CO2 did not rise above 300 parts per million between the advent of human civilization roughly 10,000 years ago and 1900. In current it is at about 400 ppm, a level not reached in more than 400,000 years.Increased in burning of fossil fuels contributes to climate change.

If the primary cause of climate change is the burning of fossil fuels why has the climate changed so much before that was happening?
I ask you to be more precise with your language. Did you mean; The primary cause of climate change today is the burning of fossil fuels?
The reply would then be that the climate has been extremely stable for the last couple of decades whilst huge amounts of fossil fuels have been burnt. You will need to explain this.
Perhaps you would prefer; The primary cause of climate change in the period 1979 to 1998 was the burning of fossil fuels. Obviously you would still need to explain the other periods. I think you will struggle to do so.

By what instrumentation are you measuring the amount of carbon dioxide produced by man vs that produced by nature?
By what instrumentation are you measuring global temperature? Remember we have no thermometers in most parts of the world, and we have almost none in the atmosphere or at anything but some surface buoys. Since temperature can vary widely within a single mile, how can you gain any kind of useful average?
