Here's an interesting link for you all, it's a leaked Draft Report from the IPCC.


Now the IPCC say that this report is only a draft and needs to be TWEAKED, probably because it doesn't bode to well for future Government Funding. Most of what I read was over my head and a translation would be nice, Snowy what are you upto for a few hours, please.  thumbsup

On the face of it, it would appear that Man is not solely responsible for Global Warming, no surprise there for me, so tweak away we all love paying Taxes.  Smiley

From the title I take it that we should be careful of out 'green' tech not making matters worse.

Global warming IS happening. Found this article of BA blog.

At least 50% of global warming is down to us. Not you and me Diesel, the 7,000,000,000 odd human beings all wanting food/electricity/cars etc. This is likely to be as high as 90%. (have a look at some of the graphs in SummaryForPolicymakers PDF inc. page SPM-22).

Summary:- the global warming gun has been fired it is now down to how much we can alleviate/exacerbate it. Do not buy a house near sea level, especially on a flood plain.

Good reading and reiterates what I already thought, global warming is happening and man is at least partly responsible.

Also don't believe a politician when they say otherwise. 

I was also going to make a joke that Diesel is partly responsible for this, have you seen his avatar there chucking out black smoke 24 hours a day? but than thought better of it, would have been a stupid joke.  Undecided

Now just wait one Cotton Picking Minute here, if you recall, my Avatar was just a picture originally, it was you that brought it to life. All my fault again, oh for a selective memory.  Grin

Interesting visual from APOD to show any global warming deniers that they are wrong!

nice visual there of collected data.
though I think most of the deniers are only denying the causes, not the actual facts of earths temps increasing.

I've never denied that the climate has been changing; nor have I ever said that things weren't getting warmer.

That said, however, I have said in the past (and still feel this way today) that we simply don't know enough about the variables involved with the climate to say with any degree of certainty that we're significantly responsible, nor do we have enough hard data to definitively state that this isn't just part of a much, much larger cycle.

Of course, I could be (and quite probably am) talking out of the wrong orifice again. I do that from time to time. Cheesy

The only 'controversy' is using the same line of argument that the tobacco industry used to say smoking doesn't cause lung cancer and that ID use to say evolution is only a 'theory'. Fox News being one of the biggest 'both sides of the argument' proponents.
We ARE causing 50-90% of the warming. There's plenty of data. It's down to what we do. Business as usual or change the program.

The 'deny-o-sphere' is buzzing, seeing as there will be a new IPCC report coming out soon.

Some interesting articles.

Britain is flooded, the USA has some of the wildest weather on record, the Jetstream has moved.

I wonder if Global Warming is real   scratch-head

NOTE to Dave, better bring a boat with ya.

Bring your waders if you have them  Grin

Watched a program on the latest weather. This all started with the record hurricane in Indonesia. That disturbed the Pacific which in turn disturbed the northern jet stream causing the cold weather over mainland USA causing a big temperature differential to the Gulf of Mexico causing a conveyor of storms to hit us.

I have never seen the beach so high in Brighton. There's normally a 3 foot drop from the esplanade to the beach. In places, the beach is now on the esplanade.
