Hello to all. I, like most people now days is interested in what we've been told is "Climate Change/Global Warming".
I would like to present to the general public here some ideas I have developed over the past few years about this subject.
#1. There is no doubt that man made introduction of certain chemicals/compounds/emissions etc. have CONTRIBUTED. Although I am NOT convinced that this is the complete story of the cause of the changes we are seeing.
#2. What I ask can be causing the climate to change?? First off, how can we be certain that we are not going through a period of change due to the position of the Solar system we live in....The Milky Way Galaxy "Spins" like a top...(An old Toy). The Science channel and other documentaries have covered this many times. I try to watch these type documentaries whenever I can. The latest one I have seen states that our sun actually raises and lowers itself on the way around the center of the galaxy! The main concern the scientists had was placing us in harms way of asteroids, comets, etc that are located in areas we have now been through in "Modern History". Can this phenomenon not influence the climate as well?? Possibly more than anyone has even considered!
It has been millions, possibly billions of years since our "Arm" of the solar system has traveled through this area of space. There is NO RECORDS from over 100 years past. So we can't totally blame this change on one particular thing.
#3. What would happen if we stopped using ...I mean TOTALLY STOPPED USING fossil fuels? Would this help?? This WORLD has made rapid change in all areas of human life since the introduction of fossil fuels in using internal combustion engines and the like. What would happen to the Population of this planet IF we totally stopped driving cars, trucks (Transportation of food and other goods).
#5. We have become "Spoiled" in a sense that hardly anyone could go back to horse/mule days when animal power was used for everything we use fossil fuels for...and now take for granted. I was raised on a farm and my Dad and Grand-daddy used mules for most everything. People would die trying to do that type manual labor now. We'd starve to death.
I do not want to even "Think" of the problems this would cause.
I will stop here and possibly add more later. I will be awaiting to hear from others on these theories I have....I would truly like to hear what others, especially those in the scientific field have to say. Thanks to all for putting in their part....TD.

I agree. Once you have taken all the politics away from 'Climate Change', aka Catastrophic Global Warming, one question remains to be answered with confidence: What is the Climate Sensitivity (resultant temp increase due to a doubling of CO2)?

If it's high, i.e. 2.0C - 4.5C, then there may be a problem, if it's low 0.6C - 2.0C, then there is no problem.

Over the last few years, this value has been gradually lowered by the 'consensus', and the global temperatures have flat-lined this century, suggesting Climate Sensitivity is lower (by my reckoning, 0.65C)

Hey there, nice blog. Have you read any of Ricky Rood's posts? He is a featured blogger here and focuses more on climate change than Dr. Masters himself.

#1-Totally agree with you there. Despite the attempts by the CC crowd, there just isn't enough evidence that the Earth is on a warming trend and to what extent will that hypothetical trend damage the ecosystem.

#2-I believe (don't quote me on this) that we make one orbit around the super-massive black hole every 250 million years or so. However, I don't see how this would affect our climate systems. All we are doing is moving about a fixed point, a steady orbit too. The effects of all this on Earth should surely be negligible, if any.

#3-Eventully, we WILL stop using fossil fuels. We shall move on to renewable resources, things that are more economical than fossil fuels and are more environmentally-friendly.

#4-You skipped number 4. Lol.

#5-Yes, I agree, but I don't see what manual labor these days has to do with climate change. If something needs to happen, it will, regardless of human physical capabilities.
