"As long as we take action, we preserve a better future.”
"There was a stark contrast between Exxon’s own internal climate science research and the climate misinformation produced by the think tanks that the company subsequently funded. "
Kekraptico: Climatology (from Greek κλίμα, klima, "place, zone"; and -λογία, -logia) or climate science is the scientific study of climate, scientifically defined as weather conditions averaged over a period of time.
Kekraptico: In the psychology of human behavior, denialism is a person's choice to deny reality as a way to avoid a psychologically uncomfortable truth.
"In a new nationally representative survey, we asked Americans how much they think global warming is harming their local communities, who they think is responsible for paying the costs from the associated damages, and whether they support lawsuits to make fossil fuel companies pay for a portion of local damages."
Kekraptico: "Christian fundamentalists repudiate the evidence of common descent of humans and other animals as demonstrated in modern paleontology, genetics, histology and cladistics and those other sub-disciplines which are based upon the conclusions of modern evolutionary biology, geology, cosmology, and other related fields. "
Kekraptico: Our pope to your pope:
Today, many religious denominations accept that biological evolution has produced the diversity of living things over billions of years of Earth's history. Many have issued statements observing that evolution and the tenets of their faiths are compatible. Scientists and theologians have written eloquently about their awe and wonder at the history of the universe and of life on this planet, explaining that they see no conflict between their faith in God and the evidence for evolution. Religious denominations that do not accept the occurrence of evolution tend to be those that believe in strictly literal interpretations of religious texts.

Ocean heat content at a record high
Human-emitted greenhouse gases trap extra heat in the atmosphere. While some of this warms the Earth’s surface, the vast majority – upwards of 90% – goes into the oceans. Most of this accumulates in the top 700 metres, but some is also mixed into the deep oceans.
Kekraptico: Working Group I
The Physical Science Basis
WG I assesses the physical science of climate change.
Kekraptico: Working Group II
Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability
Working Group II assesses the vulnerability of socio-economic and natural systems to climate change, negative and positive consequences of climate change and options for adapting to it.
Kekraptico: Working Group III
Mitigation of Climate Change
WG III focuses on climate change mitigation, assessing methods for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
theHating: Science denial should be banned from the science threads and move to off-topic or religion where it belongs.
Angry Beaver: As soon as creationism is mentioned in an evolution thread it should be banned and sent to the religion threads. Sick of trying to discuss evolution and fending off damned religious zealots
Angry Beaver: Always the idiots blather about "abiogenesis thi abiogenesis that"
Nothing to do with evolution!!!
They barely understand what they're arguing against and use their creation sites to copy/paste the same cherry picked from legitimate science sites.....
