I Am Not a Crackpot!

Posted on March 6, 2014 8:00 pm

Climate scientists are now claiming that volcanic eruptions are to blame for the “pause” in global warming.

So… it’s an evil plot by a Bond villain?

    Insert expletive here. Please show me where this gigantic volcano effect figured into their climate models, which settled the science twenty years ago — or ten years ago — or last year.

    These are the same people who didin’t include the solar cycles, or water vapor, in their models. Or the fact that the atmosphere isn’t a closed system like a greenhouse, to begin with. I won’t call them scientists.

    I was under the impression that volcanos release massive amounts of CO2. A lot more than all human activity combined. By global warming climate change alarmist standards, an eruption should cause warming, not cooling.

  3. Dodsfall says:

    An a side note, it is a slick fallacy to claim climate skeptics “do not believe in climate change” as if we are some sort of flat earthers.

    Yes, the climate does change and it always has. Those of us who are skeptics simply refute the notion that instituting redistributive crony communist policies can change the temperature of the earth.

    I don’t believe all the global warming hype, but I read about 20 years ago that one good size volcano eruption would offset 100 years of warming supposedly caused by industrialization, by spewing pollutants into the atmosphere that block out a portion of the sunlight. At the time, they said that an eruption in the Philippines lowered the global temperature by about two degrees. Sounds like a self-correct mechanism built into the planet.

  5. Jimmy says:

    @2 – it’s the sulfur-based aerosols and particulates that spread in the high atmosphere. They block sunlight – called “global dimming” – and result in cooler temp’s in the troposphere.

  6. Oppo says:

    Yes.. Why don’t these writers use the term “human-caused climate change” instead of “climate change”?

    Wouldn’t it be more precise?

    Isn’t accuracy related to science?

    After all, no one has ever denied that climate changes.

    What could possibly be their motive for being so ingenuous?

  7. Burt says:

    What???? Wait a minute. I thought Global Warming caused volcanos.

  8. Dodsfall says:

    Danny Glover says global warming causes earthquakes when treaties aren’t signed.

    Wait, I think I got it now.
    Global warming causes the atmosphere to warm, and thus expand farther into space.
    Air drag from the expanded atmosphere slows passing asteroids, causing them to fall to earth.
    So global warming Does increase the chance of asteroid impacts!
    Oh Noooo!:(

    I refuse to call it “climate change.” That’s a foregone conclusion. The minute these idiot leftists flip-flopped from global warming, to global cooling (which they must have realized after the fact was idiotically insane), everyone was like “Whoa – back the train up.” And then went to the murky and amorphous “climate change” and all the rubes were sold again.

    Nope. Since that day, I’ve called it “global whatever.” Because that’s my reaction when someone jacktard starts yammering about it. Whatever.

    (Same crap they pulled with abortion. Notice how “abortion rights” went to “pro-choice” – but is now “reproductive rights?” Mask the stupidity and/or horribleness with clever euphemism. Laaame.)

    Don’t care…I’m still blaming global warming™ on, yeah, you guessed it…Bush™.

  12. Bad Science says:

    “The impact of volcanic eruptions on global warming could provide a new explanation”
    So it appears it also could be doing the exact opposite, according to the author.
    I love the word “could” when used in science. It means everything could be happening.
