Noticed while looking at zillow that in my area foreclosure have gone up 3X in the past 6 months?Are any other locale seeing a creep up of foreclosures?
Why are new shipping routes already planned? We are not talking of scientists. These are business people. Are they lying too?
It has been largely as model predicted, 2015 appears on that interactive map, and you guys are fighting a rear guard battle. You had your days in 2004. Now every year that passes make you sound more and more like idiots refusing stodgily to bow to reality.
Onvacation saysThe point you seem to have missed is that rain forests, or any unfrozen land, is better than an icy desert.You have completely shifted your argument to "there is no climate change" to "there is climate change but who cares because hot is better than cold."I'm glad you now admit that you believe climate change is real. It's a step in the right direction.

WookieMan saysWhy is there another climate change thread?Brother wookie just between you and I, I will secretly confess that this is not in all probable fact a climate change thread. It is a rather poorly constructed but still curious psychology experiment.
Why is there another climate change thread?
This is pretty funny. The premise here is that if (1) someone ignores the fact that you cannot resolve 5 inches in the picture and (2) ignores the fact that tides vary as pointed out already and (3) assume that a few point visual measurements are more accurate than the average of many measurements around the world over decades, then we can prove that climate change is a fraud. Who is following the evidence and who is following blinded by cognitive bias again? Will this thread make it to 100 comments? Will Malcom claim at that point that nobody has answered his question? I'm titillated.
Malcolm says1. The side putting forward the theory has to defend it from skepticism. That is how science works. It is not a popularity contest.Except all your arguments have been refuted and you are not doing science: you are reading some denialist blogs, and throwing the kitchen sink at the theory, for the sake of not refusing it. Scientists that try to debunk a theory can't just point at 1 problem, they also need to provide alternative explanations for the facts that are explained by the theory. Malcolm says2. Some of us are old enough to have heard this stuff every decade since our childhood. It didn't come true.Oh yes it did. It's just not a big difference so far. But it will relentlessly move forward slowly over decades, over centuries. Keep in mind centuries are blinks in the history of ma...

Malcolm saysI didn't say my pictures were proof of 0 sea level rise, I said they were evidence contradicting sea level rise. I stand corrected. They are proof of the absence of sea level rise exceeding the pixel size of your photograph which as far as I can determine is well over a foot.Fortunately for the warmist community, that isn't what scientists have measured.

1 - checkout https://www.skepticalscience.com/ and look at the most used climate myths from deniers on the Internet. All debunked. 2 - It's a projection range of what will happen based on what is known. I can also say where the earth will be 1 year from now based on known physics. This is not blind speculation. 3 - journalists are not scientists. Show me a scientific paper announcing alarmist scenario by 1990.4 - The theory is the general fact that CO2 generated by humans changes the climate. There are many models that differ on how they represent different phenomenons and the assumptions made. They are matched against known historic reality and adjusted. Not sure what's confusing about that.
In San Diego difference between highest and lowest tide is around 7 feet. So yeah - even if the most extreme predictions of sea level rise come true, for the next 100 year you can still make a picture of the same place with exactly the same sea level, and use it as a proof, that sea level is not rising.Bonus points - go now, carve something into a rock at high tide, and continue making photos every month when water level is exactly the same. Repeat for 1200 months.irrefutable evidence is yours.
Malcolm saysThis should take care of most of the criticisms.Malcom, can we classify you as a greenhouse-effect denier and a physics denier?
This should take care of most of the criticisms.
I'm curious why I should watch a near 1 hour video of a person who is not a scientist in the field, has no published work on it, and is presumably a self-appointed hobbiest "expert," ..... and from that, you believe I will somehow get all the answers I need. Seriously? What about all the actual scientists working in the field? I can't get the answers from them? They wouldn't be a better source? Yes or no?
A household income of $200k is well above "middle class," even in LA.From CNN/Money:
But shouldn't the rich be paying more of their fair share and doesn't curtailing home price increases make home buying more affordable for the next generation?
You picture homeowners being audited then paying back taxes and penalties to the IRS then. Go look at the Economic Substance Doctrine before you try this at home.
