Instead you chose to change what I wrote because you didn't like the fact that I called you out for purposely misleading things as well as asking questions, which mind you is very unscientific to shout down people who ask questions.

So, could you please stop making stuff up , then say others do the same? That would be great....

Come on man don't be ridiculous, you're better than that. Are climate scientists getting tons of money, do they get more than non-renewable energy big wigs?

why are banks still giving out 30 year mortgages if the world is going to be under water in half that time?

The entire premise of your question is retarded. It assumes the banks choose making smart long term investment decisions over short term profit and it includes a false claim regarding the effects of climate change.

Why did the banks tank the economy a decade ago? Why did they take the taxpayer bailouts and line their own pockets while fucking over homeowners? Why are they doing all the same shit now that tanked the economy last time?

I know this is a difficult concept for you to understand but humans often make very bad decisions based on greed.

the banks fucked over the economy because they knew they would get bailed out by washington. this has nothing to do with that.

they aren't going to lend money if they have foreknowledge the fucking world is going to be under water in 15 years and there's zero chance of them ever seeing ROI.

if the world was going to end, you wouldn't be hearing it from bill nye.

No one, is claiming, the world, is going, to be, underwater, in 15 years.

If you are going to make retarded arguments against climate science, at least educate yourself on what the actual scientists have to say about it. Saying, herpa derpa the banks would stop doing business if climate change is real!!, does not make you look as clever as you think it does.

There is no debate over whether humans are destroying the environment. No one should waste their time arguing with someone over accepting scientific fact. The only debate that should be taking place is what to actually do about it.

If you want to let your ignorance and/or ideology get in the way of accepting reality, then don't be surprised when you continue getting mocked. If, however, you want to have a real discussion over the best way to transition from fossil fuel energy to clean energy, then that is a discussion worth having.

Are YOU a scientist or are you just regurgitating what you heard? Because if your only argument is "the scientists say..." then there are scientists that disagree with you.

I know I know... they aren't as smart as your scientists. But hey there's also a "debate" among scientists as to whether or not gender is a choice.

bolded.

Re: Let's Talk Politics! The Official Political Discussion Thread

Good science makes accurate predictions. Pseudoscience makes failed predictions.

Astronomy, cosmology, psychics, geology -- these fields all have a long history of being right about things. They are credible fields that accurately describe reality.

Climate change is more comparable to astrology, phrenology, and ufology. It doesn't make accurate predictions, and it can't be falsified. No properly-educated individual can sensibly label it science. It's political ideology which leeches off of the prestige of the label science. I mean, look at the thread title we're having this discussion in: The Official Political Discussion Thread. That's not a coincidence.

The Big List Of Failed Climate Change Predictions - Watts Up With That?

It goes beyond catastrophic failed predictions, of course. Climate change alarmists often behave as if they don't believe a damn word they say. We all remember the climate summit where attendees showed up in private jets and limousines. We know many climate change alarmists are wealthy and live in luxurious homes with enormous carbon footprints. Some climate alarmists even own yachts.

And what about the 97% consensus?

First of all, that number is highly dubious, but even if it's not, who cares? Science isn't a democracy. Science is ruled by observable evidence and logical interpretation. You can have a billion scientists supporting one position. All it takes is one man with a single superior argument to trump all of them. In fact, that's how almost all scientific advancements have been throughout history: one man with a new, superior idea, against a consensus defending the status quo.

And why wouldn't the overwhelming majority of climate scientists support climate change? It's the fundamental dogma of the entire field. If you go to university to study anything climate-related, guess what? You're going to be indoctrinated with climate change alarmism, and you're going to be ostracized, possibly even oppressed, if you deviate from that view. It's not hard to develop a consensus in those conditions. For Christ's sake, religions have used the exact same strategy for years. The fact that 97% of climate scientists support climate change is no surprising, and no more evidence of its truthfulness, than the fact that 99.4% of Iran supports Islam. Indoctrination works, kids. That's why it's used.

I will remain a climate change skeptic until climate alarmists start making accurate predictions, and start behaving like they believe what they're saying. Until then, they can take their "science~!!!" nonsense and stick it where the sun doesn't shine (which should be Earth according to climate change predictions.

Now, with all of that said, I'm all for keeping the planet clean. It's still our home, after all. Our home needs taken care of. The problem with climate "solutions" is that they often have significant economical consequences. Sorry, but we're not going to ruin the economy so scare-mongering idiots who've been shouting the end is neigh! for 60 years now can sneak in their nutty socialism (whose implementation actually would mean the end is neigh, ironically). Sensible solutions only, thank you.
