    If we drilled into the earths core deep in the ocean, it would rush in potentially cooling the earth thus allowing the ice caps to reform, further more the water could evaporate and create steam shich could condense into rain clouds and rehydrate the lost parts of certain forests. the trees would grow back and create more oxygen which could potentially heal our atmosphere what are your thoughts on my discovery ps. i will not charge for this research as i wish to our earth saved.

  • Hasn't the media created global warming skepticism?

    Best answer: Yes, I think that's part of it. It used to be the case that the purpose of journalism was to factually relay information to us. Of course, the media have always been used to spread propaganda, but certainly when I look at TV reports from the 60s and 70s on youtube, they're much more succinct. They tend to... show more
    Best answer: Yes, I think that's part of it.

    It used to be the case that the purpose of journalism was to factually relay information to us. Of course, the media have always been used to spread propaganda, but certainly when I look at TV reports from the 60s and 70s on youtube, they're much more succinct. They tend to be 'today, President X met the Prime Minister of country Y. A main topic for discussion will be the trade of Z between these nations'.

    Today, journalism isn't just about reporting the facts. It's also about placing those facts in 'context' and performing 'analysis'. And journalistic standards have certainly plummeted through the floor, particularly with the arrival of the 'net where any wannabe hipster hack 'contributor' can 'write' a 'story' and have it published in some form. Maybe editorial standards have dropped too since the garbage manages to make it onto the screen or page.

    The point is then that successful media outlets have established a base of regular viewers/readers. Over the years they've formed a demographic cohort who absorbs their material. And over the years, that now colours the 'analysis' and 'context' that they give the story. The audience gravitates to the outlet that best fits their own personal interpretation.

    So it's a vicious circle. People will listen to media outlets whose interpretation and analysis fits their own. This establishes an audience, ratings, and sales. The media outlet then ends up having to maintain that sort of interpretation and analysis to ensure its readership/sales.

    The only way out of that circle, in my opinion, is to have publicly funded news stations. I personally, for example, watch and listen to the BBC since it is a publicly funded broadcaster, has no commercial advertisements, and therefore, to me, probably doesn't have much in the way of an 'agenda'. Others may disagree (Trump does!) but so be it ...

  • Why is policy being based around the worthless predictions of 'climate scientists'?

    Best answer: History will look back on this time as even more ignorant than the days of geocentricism and Galileo. Progressives imagine themselves to be sophisticated and enlightened, when in fact they are actually a bunch of dangerously stupid and stoned useful idiots.

    Best answer: I have read dozens of books recently and not all are fiction but none are text books. I have zero interest in reading any text books. I read a couple on anthropology not too long ago, one on Neanderthals and one on Kenniwick man but I don't think those count. A person with two narrow a focus, has very limited knowledge.

    From Bohren
    <<<“First off, let me say I consider the concept of a global mean temperature [upon which global warming statistics are based] to be somewhat dubious, and I say so in my recent book (with Eugene Clothiaux) Fundamentals of Atmospheric Radiation. A single number cannot adequately capture climate change. This number, as I see it, is aimed mostly at politicians and journalists.”

    The issue of global warming is extremely complicated, and it transcends science. Views on global warming are as much determined by political and religious biases as by science. No one comes to the table about this issue without biases. So I'll state some of mine.
    https://usatoday30.usatoday.com/tech/col...

    I have lived long enough to have seen many doomsday scenarios painted by people who profited by doing so, but which never came to pass. This has made me a skeptic. Perhaps global warming is an example of the old fable about the boy who cried wolf, but this time the doomsayers are, alas, right. Maybe, but I can't help noting that some of the prominent global warmers of today were global coolers of not so long ago. >>>

    Yet you presumably interpret his text book differently.
