The Warming World: Is Capitalism Destroying Our Planet? (barf: admits anti-capitalism)

Since 1880, when global temperatures began to be systematically collected, no year has been warmer than 2014. The 15 warmest years, with one single exception, have come during the first 15 years of the new millennium. Indeed, it has become an open question as to whether global warming can be stopped anymore—or at least limited as policymakers have called for. Is capitalism ultimately responsible for the problem, or could it actually help to solve it? […]

He had, he said in a 2013 interview with Bloomberg Business, lost his faith in climate diplomacy. “The only way that a 2015 agreement can achieve a 2-degree goal is to shut down the whole global economy,” he said.

It must have been at some point between the 1970s, when the world experienced 660 natural catastrophes, and the last decade, with its 3,322 storms, heat waves and flooding. It came quietly, as most of us were looking away. Since then, the ice cap at the North Pole is melting, glaciers in the Alps are disappearing and dikes on the North Sea have had to be heightened. …

I wonder if anybody actually bothers to look up in the sky and see a huge ball of fire heating up the earth. I guess they are too busy sticking their head in the sand.

Next ice age will kill millions of people all over the world. Extreme cold snaps kill lot more people than heat waves.

If humans are smart they should burn fossil fuels faster to postpone the next ice age as long as possible.

In related but unreported news, it has now been 3415 days (9.35 years) since the last major (Category 3 or higher) hurricane has made landfall in the United States. This calm spell shatters the old record of 2231 days (6.11 years) set 19 Oct 1906.

In further related news, the Great Lakes have 86% ice coverage as of 27 Feb 15. The average MAXIMUM ice coverage is 55%.

Really, what more proof of Global Warming could anyone ask for?

Since 1880...

As if there were no global temperature fluctuations before 1880.

Of course, multiple times, and with the authority of fact.

But that is not relevant to the Warmist Cult. For them, it comes down to this: "It may be bullshit, but it's the bullshit we love. It's OUR bullshit"

Don’t argue with these idiots. Tell them to take the lead and sell their homes, cars and cell phones and live in the woods. Then maybe we’ll believe THEY believe.

The Bertelsmann Media has never been about truth too much, especially during the National Socialist era.

As David Horowitz says, "The issue [climate change] is never the issue. The issue is always the [socialist] revolution."
