What are the arguments stating that global warming is not actually a huge threat?

Posted by admin on November 27, 2012 in Global Warming with 12 Comments


I am writing a paper on global warming and I need to state facts about both sides of the argument. Trouble is, I am not sure where to look for information on the "other" side of the story. I’ve got lots of information that supports the reality of global warming, but there has to be some evidence that contradicts most of what we read. Any resources would be very helpful!
For the record, I think global warming is an extremely obvious reality and that people who chose not to see it are oblivious.

The earth has been this warm and even warmer in the past and the world didnt end.

The earth has been alternating from hot to cool and back again(with a trend towards cooling) since long before humans have been on this planet. Most global warming advocates will only show you temperature trends from the last few thousand years and claim that’s proof of Global Warming. The earth has actually been cooling rather steadily for at least the last 70 million years(start of the Cenozoic). The earth is as cool as it’s ever been. Scientists know this through the study of core samples of ice and Planktic/Bethnic Foraminifera.

A chart showing the last 700,000 years. Notice that we are about at the peak of a warming trend. Also notice that the Earth has been this warm and even warmer in the past.

So yes in the short term the earth is warming but we have very little if anything to do with it. In the long term scope of things we’re as cool today as we’ve ever been.

    um…
    this is from my head cause im an environmentalist.

    ~this has been happening for millions of years now, but as our technology grows, we ar coming more aware of it.

    ~el-nino

    ~its just irregular temps.

    Sadly, most of the recent scientific literature is in agreement, that global warming is real and is a threat. So it’s not likely that you’ll find much in the way of disagreement.

    I’d try the mainstream media – some columnists – however scientifically accurate or inaccurate they may be – have spoken against the climate change theory.

    every time a valcano erupts it spews so much crap into the atmosphere, like in the 1960s or some thing there was a volcano that erupted and it spewed to much toxic crap that it was equivalent to the entire industrial evolution in like a matter of weeks, I know that wisconsin "where i am" got a record snowfall this winter, the earth just goes through fases, and this is just a fase, as was the prehistoric times, the ice ages, and now, ha, al gore, what a joke

    At last thought i don’t beleive there is any proven evidence it doesn’t exsist I thin Al Gore even says it that there is no scientific studies against it in his movie .

    Innerchi,

    Let me start off by saying we (my family and I) live 100% off of the grid and are completely self-sufficient with a 0% Carbon footprint. I believe this is the first step anyone can make “help the environment”. Once you convert your own life style to a greener more eco friendly route, you can start helping others.

    if your interested feel free to contact me personally at www agua-luna com

    We definitely didn’t start global warming, but we definitely do contribute to it now.

    Natural gas (or Methane along with other thanes) for example, is completely a natural contributer to global warming and is derived pretty much the same way as oil. ie. Matter (animal, plant etc) decomposes over time resulting in a anaerobic (hope I spelled that right) decay of non-fossil organic material / gas (natural gas or methane).

    One problem with global warming is that the concept is so vague in the minds of the people. The critical interpretation is basically how it’s explained in school and the news. However most of the public see global warming connected with the ozone and pollutants which cause harmful greenhouse gasses, etc. therefore investigating and fighting for things like alternative energy (ie. Solar, wind, hydrogen, ethanol, biodiesel, etc)

    Greenhouse gases are real and do contribute to global warming. Think of the different gas layers like ozone (o3) that circumference the globe as the clear plastic on a greenhouse. Longer rays of light from the Sun go in and reflect off different thermal masses bouncing back and creating shorter lengths of energy that cannot exist the plastic barrier. These beams then just continue to bounce around inside the green house until they’re finally absorbed completely (some do escape but very few), thereby warming the greenhouse greatly even in cold temperatures.

    Basically there are 2 ways that this reaction (or lack of) affects the planet. Global warming and global cooling.

    1. as we add to the gases in the stratosphere, where the ozone layer is (Carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, etc), we add to the plastic of the greenhouse, trapping more short wave length energy and heating the earth more.
    2. as we deplete the ozone (with chlorofluorocarbons or CFCs), we allow more long wave length energy, which bounces back out to space without heating any thermal masses on earth, thereby cooling the planet.

    It’s pretty easy to see the results..

    Melting ice sheets & glaciers
    Floods & droughts
    Great hurricanes & cyclones
    Seasonal extremes
    Seasonal phenomena’s
    Species extinction
    New & resurgent diseases

    There are many ways to stop both global warming and cooling from accruing or at least slow them down until we can discover a way to reverse it, but Stop burning fossil fuels is the biggest.

    I currently own 2 converted h2 vehicles which run on 100% hydrogen and 1 EV (electric vehicle), not to mention our home is completely off the grid, using alternative energy (solar, wind, etc)

    If you interested I offer several DIY alternative guides to walk you step by step threw Greener living, how to run your car on alternative fuels and being self-sufficient, at agua-luna com or

    Hope this helped, feel free to contact me personally if you have any questions if you’d like assistance in making your first self sufficient steps, I’m willing to walk you step by step threw the process. I’ve written several how-to DIY guides available at www agua-luna com on the subject. I also offer online and on-site workshops, seminars and internships to help others help the environment.

    Try looking at the alternative of global cooling where glaciers advance again, growing seasons get short, and life becomes nasty, brutish, and short.
