I left the following comments at http://beverlymm.wordpress.com/2011/02/02/forget-global-warming/
Beverly seems a nice girl and according to her site she is an energy consultant whose job is to “turn buildings into energy generators rather than energy users.”
Beverly did not see the irony in my first comment and when she saw my second she appears to have spammed it immediately.
Unfortunately Beverly, I will have to chalk you up as another AGW believer who cannot tolerate facts and opinions that contradict your own.
Dont worry about losing your job when AGW is shown to be the fraud it is though, if you can save businesses money without taxpayer intervention, I’m sure your services will still be in demand.
Yes I am sure that there will be global warming no matter what the weather.
True, it is too late to stop global warming, it has already begun and is gathering momentum. However, it is not yet too late to halt this progression and, eventually, to reverse the amount of greenhouse gases spewing into the atmosphere. This will slowly, very slowly, allow the earth to heal. The question remains whether or not our governments are up to the challenge. So far, especially here in the United States, the answer is if it doesn’t line the corporate pockets, it’s not worth doing.
The following comment was the one spammed. I guess it was too much for poor Beverly.
You missed the irony in my comment.
There may or may not be Global Warming but it is obvious that proponents of AGW are engaging in incredible contortions to show that the climate is still warming in spite of ocurrences which are obviously worrying them.
They do this because there is no proof of global warming, only some vague correlations which, if you ever studied statistics, you would know, do not constitute proof in any shape or form, and climate warming is the only thing they have that supports their theory.
What is more important is that some empirical proof demonstrating the CO2 – Global Warming causation is valid be found.
Unfortunately this has not been found so we do not even know if the temperature rises since about 1900 are even caused by CO2.
Unfortunately for AGW proponents there are historical and archaeological facts which disprove that connection, and the truth is that we have not even reached the same temperature of the Holocene Maximum (during which the Sahara was fertile), yet.
This is not to say that the earth does not have conservation issues that desperately need addressing, but CO2 is not one of them.
Please read my blog and comment there if you disagree or otherwise. I never disallow comments unless they are obvious spam.
Your comment about “corporate pockets” is interesting.
Did you ever think about what will happen if we follow the IPCC guidelines and reduce fossil energy use by 60%?
Of course the price of energy will skyrocket, and who will benefit from that? Well I would put my money on the oil suppliers and the like. They will be able to reduce oil production and sit back to enjoy the high prices and inflated margins. Just like OPEC has tried to do all these years.
So sorry you saw fit to spam my comment.
I am disappointed in you though, I would have though an engineer such as yourself would be able to tolerate someone elses point of view and at least discuss some of the facts therein.
Never mind though, I published the comment for you on my other blog http://www.globalwarmingsupporter.wordpress.com where my readers will take great delight in seeing another AGW faithful unable to defend the faith and bear in mind that I never spam a comment unless it is exactly that, and I always answer comments so long as the conversation remains logical.
Please feel welcome to visit.
Well Beverly restored my comment so I waited to see if she had anything of her own to add to the conversation.
I was just about to thank her for restoring my comment when all of a sudden it disppeared again and the following appeared in its place.
Thank you for your comments Roger, you are certainly welcome to your opinion. However, I find it is not beneficial to engage in a discussion with someone whose opinion is so firmly settled. Good luck to you in your endeavors.
Gosh Beverly, and I was just about to thank you for restoring my comment.
I was also wondering if you were going to express an opinion as well but I guess you have found that a too difficult a task.
Trust you read my coments at http://www.globalwarmingsupporter.wordpress.com which unfortunately, (for you), you have vindicated even further.
“It is not beneficial to engage in a discussion with someone whose opinion is so firmly settled.”
Well I take that as a compliment actually because it shows that she has no answer for the logic in my comment. It is true that good sound logic is difficult to criticise.
