The Oxford Handbook of Climate Change and Society, chapter 10, is about organized climate-change denialism. Interesting read.

Here is what Gammon had to say concerning links between humans and climate change.

This is like asking, ‘Is the moon round?’ or ‘Does smoking cause cancer?’ We’re at a point now where there is no responsible position stating that humans are not responsible for climate change. That is just not where the science is.…For a long time, for at least five years and probably 10 years, the international scientific community has been very clear.”

In case there is any doubt, Gammon went on:
This is not the balance-of-evidence argument for a civil lawsuit; this is the criminal standard, beyond a reasonable doubt We’ve been there for a long time and I think the media has really not presented that to the public.”

Industry Ignored Its Scientists on Climate

By ANDREW C. REVKINPublished: April 23, 2009

For more than a decade the Global Climate Coalition, a group representing industries with profits tied to fossil fuels, led an aggressive lobbying and public relations campaign against the idea that emissions of heat-trapping gases could lead to global warming.

“The role of greenhouse gases in climate change is not well understood,” the coalition said in a scientific “backgrounder” provided to lawmakers and journalists through the early 1990s, adding that “scientists differ” on the issue.

But a document filed in a federal lawsuit demonstrates that even as the coalition worked to sway opinion, its own scientific and technical experts were advising that the science backing the role of greenhouse gases in global warming could not be refuted.

Please note it takes about 1000 years for water to go through this system, but it tends to keep most of the world at the same temperature.

You also have to understand that West Antarctic is NOT one piece of land but a series of interconnected islands, connected by the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS). Here is a map of Antarctica without ice, notice on the Left, which is West Antarctica mostly islands:

Climate Change: Evidence & Causes
The Royal Society & National Academies of Science
Have produced a new report entitled: Climate Change: Evidence & Causes.
(there is an accompanying webcast as well).

Q & A addressed:
Is the climate warming?
How do scientists know that recent climate change is largely caused by human activities?
CO2 is already in the atmosphere naturally, so why are emissions from human activity significant?
What role has the Sun played in climate change in recent decades?
What do changes in the vertical structure of atmospheric temperature — from the surface up to the stratosphere — tell us about the causes of recent climate change?
Climate is always changing. Why is climate change of concern now?
Is the current level of atmospheric CO2 concentration unprecedented in Earth’s history?
Is there a point at which adding more CO2 will not cause further warming?
Does the rate of warming vary from one decade to another?
Does the recent slowdown of warming mean that climate change is no longer happening?
If the world is warming, why are some winters and summers still very cold?
Why is Arctic sea ice decreasing while Antarctic sea ice is not?
How does climate change affect the strength and frequency of floods, droughts, hurricanes, and tornadoes?
How fast is sea level rising?
What is ocean acidification and why does it matter?
How confident are scientists that Earth will warm further over the coming century?
Are climate changes of a few degrees a cause for concern?
What are scientists doing to address key uncertainties in our understanding of the climate system?
Are disaster scenarios about tipping points like ‘turning off the Gulf Stream’ and release of methane from the Arctic a cause for concern?
If emissions of greenhouse gases were stopped, would the climate return to the conditions of 200 years ago?
http://nas-sites.org/americasclimate...ce-and-causes/

A well put together information brochure designed to help address a lot of common questions and explain the basics of the scientific understandings about climate change while laying our the more compelling evidences supporting these understandings. It uses common language and is designed to help feed into public policy debate and discussions.

Additionally, the following NAS site links to a variety of other National Academies of Science pages dealing with a large variety of climate science studies and findings.

For any scaremongering about carbon dioxide (Anthropogenic Global Warming), you can go to the web sites of all scientific organizations, including the National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Society. I know of no scientific organization which does not follow the belief system that the human species has control over a geological process on planet Earth.

Every internet forum which describes itself as atheist, rational, free thinking and skeptical has members who are overwhelmingly (greater than 97%) in line with anthropogenic global warming.

There are even sites for those who are not atheist or rational:
Catholic Church,

http://catholicclimatecovenant.org/cath ... s/bishops/

United Church of Christ
http://www.ucc.org/environmental-minist ... lobal.html

Unitarian Universalist Association
http://www.uua.org/statements/statements/8061.shtml


And for those who have captive audiences in the public school system (similar to Sunday school, where little kids learn about the Creator):

Conversation with a denier...

The main premis of my post was not to debate the non-human vs. human cause of global warming, but the unscientific use of truncated charts in trying to get the "uneducated masses" to understand. Local or global, with regard to ice cores, is moot.


Given your post presents no science whatsoever tis a bit ironic. We have a very strong chart of the global temperatures since emerging from the last ice age and we are now moving out of that envelope. We were until a couple hundred years ago drifting slowly as expected to the next ice age colder temperatures driven by orbital changes...Milankovich cycles.
Our emissions of fossil carbon have cancelled that drift.

There are 56 lines of enquiry leading to this graph summary...the "spike" as you call it is the Holocene Optimum after we exited the last glacial period and was driven by our orbital position and tilt.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milankovitch_cycles


Image

Do you have an "explanation" for the sudden upward jump at the right?? ELves burning leaves ??? If you want others to cite backup....then proceed to do so yourself and back your "opinion" with supportive evidence.

Fact is there have been large changes both directions in the past.

Talk about sloppy - how about we concentrate on the past 10k years during which civilization arises. Changes do not happen without a reason.
Do you have any??

The bit about the "sun declining" needs citing.

Since you don't want to search the thread or something easily found in google.

Image

The sunspot activity cycles about every 11 years, so I'm not sure what you mean.

Yes you are not sure - that's at least refreshing - you don't know and have not read climate science articles or you would know. The sun and the climate are going in opposite directions as the graph above notes...from this article.
http://www.skepticalscience.com/solar-activity-sunspots-global-warming.htm

the dreaded "greenhouse gasses" are NOT some mysterious man-made product. Mostly CO2 which has waxed and waned in cycles. True, no recent volcano has spewed GHG into the air recently, but looking at the last 10,000 years worth of temp. data I see nothing out of the ordinary recently. In fact there was a MUCH larger spike several thousand years ago, and in the mid 20th century a deep dip. You can't take a small piece of a mountain graph and prove a point. Heck, I could flip a coin 10,000 times get 10 tails in a row, and show you only the 40 flips that proceeded it and say the coin is faulty. Proper use of raw data is all I ask for. For the record I DO believe humans have been partially at fault for the increase in CO2 and other GHG...


Ummm I don't think you quite understand that we have raised the C02 levels of the atmosphere by 40% - levels not seen for millions of years.
This is not new and has nothing to do with volcanos. The latter generally cool the atmosphere for a couple of years by releasing SO2 into the stratosphere.

How do we know that recent CO2 increases are due to human activities?
Filed under: Climate Science FAQ Greenhouse gases Paleoclimate — eric @ 22 December 2004 - (Svenska) (Español) (Français)

This is a result of man using fossil fuels and releasing long sequestered carbon to the atmosphere which changes the radiative balance.

If you are an honest inquirer then I suggest you follow some of the links in my signature instead of coming into a science forum so ill prepared.

You don't get to be a little bit pregnant.
If you accept..
CO2 traps IR.

Then you must follow the chain of evidence to where it leads.

It's getting warmer.
We're responsible.


People here are happy to answer your questions....but please understand you have a very poor grasp of the fundamentals at this point.

This is a reasonably complete visual of the forces at work.

Feel free to ask questions. The red arrows are the crux of the problem.
More IR trapping by CO2 ...you've acknowledged it, now you know where the additional CO2 comes from .

Follow the chain of evidence.

Image

The explanation and physics are rather simple.
What to do about it beyond trying not to make it worse is very tricky.
THAT is where the discussion needs to be.

Just got this. It is brilliant!

http://www.bookreporter.com/reviews/cli ... he-science

A documentary, a diary, and a masterwork graphic novel on climate change that sits at the crossroads between the work of Al Gore, Michael Moore, and comics journalist Joe Sacco. Based on the analysis of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), but seen through the perspective of everyman journalist Philippe Squarzoni, this graphic novel explains how our environment functions; outlines the consequences of climate change; and asks: Is our society able to pursue a proactive policy in regard to ecological issues? In a tour de force of both artistic and informational presentation, Philippe Squarzoni weaves together scientific research, interviews with leading experts, personal reflections, and a call for action starting at a grassroots level. New York City, New Orleans, and other US locales figure prominently, with the impact of climate change on the US central to the narrative. Weighing the potential of certain solutions and the false promises of others, the book provides hope and ideas for what the ordinary person can do, but with a realistic view of the magnitude of the changes to be made. One of the featured experts is Jean Jouzel, member of the IPCC (recipient with Al Gore of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize), who praised the final book on its thorough research and understanding of the facts.

results in hundreds of entries for this book - perhaps you need to brush-up on your 'Google-Fu' ?

The book is listed on Amazon and easy to find also.

So, no 'censorship', no 'conspiracy', no 'New World Order plotting' :nono:
