    Who said I want to the government to steal more money? They are wasting trillions of dollars on the military and other shit every year, certainly there is a lot of money that can be diverted to actually useful causes (not inefficient projects like you HAVE to pretend they are because your fundamentalist religion of "small government when it suits me" demands it of you)

    I think it's obvious that some of the "doomsday" predictions have been overstated. People that have exaggerated such predictions have done a disservice to the greater issue, because it causes people like you, (and me until a few years ago) to completely reject the idea of climate change and pretend it's nothing to worry about, when it certainly is. Those exaggerators are almost as bad as the politicians and "scientists" who get paid millions by oil companies to ensure that people remain ignorant and apathetic about the very real issue

    What countries around the world have already been starting to do - limiting their CO2 emissions by investing in alternative forms of energy and heavily reducing their reliance on fossil fuels for electricity, etc.

    More CO2 being present in the atmosphere will increase the temperature, which causes CO2 to be released more quickly from the ocean

    Very impressive copy pasta swordsmyth, I'm sure you are feeling mighty smart right now in those holy underpants of yours. I don't have time to go through every single BS article/graph in detail but I will go through a few to show how idiotic you are. Water vapor is the most abundant greenhouse gas, yes. But the concentration of water vapor in the atmosphere is a a function of the atmospheric temperature. The hotter it gets, the more water vapor there will be. I already demonstrated with the data provided in this thread, that the temperature of the atmosphere is a function of the amount of CO2 concentration. Now please tell me: what the fuck is this graph? This is the most unscientific shit I've ever had the displeasure of viewing. Where is the Y axis for the sunspot number? Why is temperature the Y-axis for both the number of sunspots and the temperature of the planet? How are the amount of sun spots related to the temperature of the earth? I already showed, in the very post you are quoting, that the sun's energy output is very constant, only varying between ~1367.5 and ~1365.5 W/m^2, meanwhile the temperature of the earth has been recorded to increase over the same duration. It is all a lie.

    There are many factors that cause the CO2 levels to be what they are. Before the industrial revolution, the CO2 level was around 285 PPM, now it's over 400 as I said, which has not been seen in 400k years or more. The USGS estimates that volcanic activity accounts for 200 million tons of yearly CO2 emissions, while automotive and industrial activities account for over 100x that. I don't know if there's a pretty, simplified percentage that scientists can come up with to dumb down the information for the average person to more easily digest, but they have created models about what the temperature would be with and without human influence. Reconstructions of global temperature that include greenhouse gas increases and other human influences (red line, based on many models) closely match measured temperatures (dashed line). Those that only include natural influences (blue line, based on many models) show a slight cooling, which has not occurred. The ability of models to generate reasonable histories of global temperature is verified by their response to four 20th-century volcanic eruptions: each eruption caused brief cooling that appeared in observed as well as modeled records. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attribution_of_recent_climate_change As for people talking about solar cycles... lol

    I don't know if anyone can address what exact percentage humans are responsible for climate change, but ultimately, the question is actually not even important, let me explain why. It is known that the temperature of the planet is greatly correlated with the quantity of CO2 (and other greenhouse gases) in the atmosphere. They are able to estimate the CO2 from all those years ago from samples of air bubbles trapped in ice in the arctic and Antarctica. One of quite a few ways that they can estimate the temperature from all those years ago from the ratio of Oxygen isotopes found in shells from the same period. In the last 400,000 years, the CO2 in the atmosphere has not exceeded ~300 PPM. Right now the CO2 is estimated to be about ~400 PPM. According to the data, the temperature of the planet lags behind the CO2 concentration by a few hundred years. So we won't see the effects of all the CO2 in the atmosphere right now, but the planet will gradually warm corresponding to the CO2 concentration. So, it's not even important if we are causing 100% of the increase in CO2 levels or it's caused by aliens pumping CO2 from their planet's atmosphere to our own. What is important is that the levels are limited so that the temperature does not deviate too much from the range in which humans have thrived. So if there is something that can be done to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere, (there is) then it should be done.

    I am unqualified, as are you, to argue about the details of climate change. Why should I waste my time trying to argue with religious imbeciles on an internet forum, that, thankfully, have very little power in the real world? Evidence demonstrating the veracity of anthropogenic climate change is not easy to undermine, or it would have already been done and accepted within the scientific community. The fact that it hasn't been, tells me that you are suggesting there is a vast conspiracy to silence the truth regarding climate change. Please provide evidence for this vast conspiracy. Or do you think all the scientists are just too stupid to properly interpet their own observations? You are like those religious idiots who pretend that evolution isn't real so they can continue to believe the Bible is the literal word of an omniscient creator.

    What science, exactly, is he denying? The sad thing is, low-IQ people like you and the majority of this forum think there is more evidence for bronze age superstitions than the incontrovertible reality of human-caused climate change.

    evidence? There are many priests who get to continue molesting kids for decades because the church prioritizes the outward image of their cult over the well-being of thousands of children He chose to compare very different statistics because he is a low-iq propagandist who honestly doesn't know any better. The statistics are not irrelevant to each other, but they cannot be compared in the way he was doing. The rest of your post is supposing without any evidence

    I am considering the evidence provided from the relevant statistics of the different countries around the world, and drawing conclusions from it. What's religious about that? You are the religious one, idiot. "The smallest government is best for society in all situations" - You. What evidence do you have substantiate such an idiotic claim?

    An accusation does not prove that they were guilty, but do you see 4% of the general populace being accused of child molestation? I don't think so. My point still stands the NCL is an absolute idiot for comparing very different statistics and trying to draw a conclusion that catholic priests do not have an alarming rate of fucking kids, which we all know they do

    There are a couple hundred countries around the world that have governments of various sizes. Pick whatever factors you like and weigh them accordingly, like poverty rate, personal freedom index, murder rate, etc and determine which governments are the best. Hint: we aren't among the best

    You are an absolute retard, and you demonstrate it with every post you make. 4% of priests have been ACCUSED of child molestation, etc. That means they were ACTING on their pedophilic urges. Between 3 and 5% of the general populace are estimated to HAVE pedophilic urges. What percentage have been accused of acting on those urges? I imagine far, far less. Do you not see that you are comparing two very different things? The numbers you provided do absolutely nothing to defend the catholic church. Hell, the whole world already knows for a fact, that the highest bishops and the pope himself worked to cover up pedophilia within the church as much as they possibly could.

    Why use dictionary.com which contains simplified, more general definitions? Why not use merriam webster, which gives greater detail into the meaning of words and how they are used and understood? Expand below: What differs religious beliefs with other beliefs? Religious beliefs require faith in the complete absence of evidence, while other beliefs are supported by the existing evidence, and the confidence in said beliefs are scaled thusly. There are hundreds of youtube videos addressing this exact topic, but for some reason you people keep trying to make this false equivalence between science and religion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lwX8p8jpzs Many people have beliefs, ideas, etc about the origin and "purpose" of the universe, but educated people scale their confidence in such beliefs with the existing evidence supporting their hypothesis
