Arne BS: 'An Inconvenient Truth' (189* d) RE: BS: 'An Inconvenient Truth' 23 Jul 06


Tom Fenner:

I don't watch propaganda from either the Left, or the Right, so I won't be seeing the movie....

Ahhhh, ignerrence is bliss...

... However, from the interviews Al has given, i gather that he has ignored the fact that one reason for the one degree rise in temerature in the past hundred years is that the sun is a bit hotter....

No. Mainly because it's not a fact. It's RW propaganda.

... That just might contribute to global warming.

Well, if it were true and it did make up a substantial contribution to warming. But the scientists are all in accort (those not on the Exxon-Mobil payroll, that is) that human factors account for a major portion of the warming, and increased solar insolation less. They don't say it doesn't exist, they say the human factors are greater.

.. my problem with the sky is falling crowd, is that they only look at stats that support what they feel is the truth....

Ummm, your evidence for this?: _______________

For instance, we banned an efficient refrigerant because florocarbons destroy the ozone layer....

Has nothing to do with warming (or more strictly, very little). Ozone depletion leads to increases in U/V, which is a different environmental problem that warming (leads to skin cancers, etc.). In addition, we've developed other refrigerants that do the job perfectly adequately. Ozone depletion has been tapering off, thanks to good science and good political and technical responses. The Freon ban is a success story. You need to read more and learm more.

... Big help! A few years back, a volcano in Indonesia blew up, and put more florocarbons in the air in twenty-four hours than we have made since we started making them.

Ummmm, no. Vocanoes don't spew flourocarbons. They spew SO2 (sulphur dioxide), which is one greenhouse gas, but not flourocarbons.

You really need to learn a bit more before before you start ignoring the consensus conclusions of reputable (and knowledgeable) scientists around the world. Based on the garbage you're trotting out here, you have a ways to go.

Cheers,
