    Report Climate change ipcc

    Now i don't disagree that the earth is warming and at an accelerating rate..but there is evidence that the globe has rapidly warmed in little as 10 years in the past and vice versa..so the earth doesn't always warm and cool over millennia it can warm and cool drastically and suddenly and the climate can swing widely..there are probably lots of natural reason why this happens..however is man made warming a thing?..evidence says yes and this to me is irrefutable..to what extent is not 100% clear because we can only take an educated guess as to what happened in the past based on what we know...which like everything else is forever changing.

    Best and worst winters

    i lived in Exeter in 1978-79 i think i was still there in 1987..i moved backed to Essex in either 1986 or 1987...from SW point in terms of volumes of Snow nothing comes close to Feb 1978..we had a lot of snow just before Xmas 1978 and around new year..then it was kind of hit and miss the rest of that winter..don't remember any snow in Dec 1984 in fact it was particularly Mild with one of the mildest Xmas day on record..was very cold off and on in January and February 1985 with snow..Jan 1987 had a very cold middle two weeks with some snow and that was it for the winter of 86-87

    Report Climate change ipcc

    There are plenty of news articles from sources such as the Guardian, New York Times etc even the UN stating exactly that stretching back to 1988..that we have 10 years to save the planet..and the same impending doom scenarios pop up again and again at regular intervals over the last 30 years

    Report Climate change ipcc

    Call me a cynic..but they have been saying this for over 30 years..we have 10 years or 15 years to save the planet..according to predictions by the UN thirty years ago.. the arctic sea ice would be gone half of new york and London would be underwater by now..the Maldives for example should have been lost for ever 15 years ago..and so far its always 10 years to save the planet..no doubt the planet is warmer..but all the prophecies of disaster that keep getting rolled out never happen..we still have summer Arctic sea ice...Half of London and New York are not underwater and the Maldives are investing billions in growing tourism
