The difference between climate and weather

The difference between climate and weather

(1:05) A cold winter does not mean the world is not warming. A common mistake when interpreting statistics is to look at them from too shorter distance, ie. not seeing the bigger picture.

The great global warming swindle. I have seen it and it is full of miss-leading propaganda for the climate change deniers. It reminds me of the long PR campaigns backed by the tobacco industry opposing the link between smoking and lung disease. Same tactics.

So, one TV show debate determines which side is full of shit? What about emails proving fake research data? Nah, that didn't really happen (hands over eyes and ears)...

Using the same logic a warm winter doesn't mean the world is not cooling ....but common sense says otherwise,especially when it is the coldest winter for decades for two years running.The science is in no way settled,the trends are in no way settled...flawed computer models and data does nothing to help the climate change people but they want your money any way...any way they can get it...

What do you mean "want your money"? This is an incongruous statement. I am baffled as to what climate change opponents think can possibly be gained by all of the scientists and others who say climate change IS happening. If a scientist wants lots of money, he should work for an oil company, not a university or environmental defense fund. If a businessman wants money, he should invest in non-renewable resources, not costly, difficult to develop and risky renewable resources and technology. Spending less overall and consuming less would be one of the most effective ways to combat any anthropomorphic climate change, so wanting money is probably not a reasonable charge to lay against those who are worried about the environment. If anything, those who already control most of the world's money have much more to gain by people NOT believing in climate change.
