Global Warming is to blame???

James Lein is a community columist for the Minot Daily,Says it not the corp,game and fish or the canadians to blame for all the flooding in ND>Its all of us and the lifestyles we are living-causing Global warming and floods.OK---Heres the link to the his Opinion......http://www.minotdailynews.com/page/content.detail/id/555810/Who-s-to-bla...

One flaw with his theory.  The mountains have been cooler than average, heck we have  been cooler on the plains as well.  So saying that the snowpack is melting faster may be true, but its much later because we are cooler. I guess that kinda shoots a hole in the whole theory.

Nobody knows what affect mankind is having on Climate Change.

What makes the whole discussion impossible though is uninformed comments like you just made.

If you study the theory behind melting of polar ice packs, you will find that added water to the oceans will COOL ocean temps and destroy maritime currents that WARM our latitudes overall.  So, the true global warming theory would result in a kind of Ice Age here and not warmer temps.

Our climate on a year-by-year basis is heavily influenced by things like La Nina and El Nino.  I'm sure you've heard about that right?  Well, those things are due to a couple degrees or less difference in Ocean Temps WAY out in the Pacific.  We KNOW the effects of that are REAL because we've seen it.

As usual, the extreme ends of the whole issue are populated with idiots with an agenda.  And, as usual, the best place to be is in the middle and people should affect what they can control.  It is always a good idea to conserve our natural resources and avoid waste.  I'll do stuff like that and let the whackos on either end of the debate kill themselves fighting over it.

I just wonder what caused the global cool down period that brough the glaciers to our part of the world.  What then caused the earth to warm up and melt the glaciers?  Also didn't the dinosaurs die because of a global cooling period?  Was this caused by man or maybe it was a natural cycle in the temperatures of the earth.  Could it be that the same thing that caused these shifts in climate could be effecting our climate today?

This combination of high snowfall and quick snow melt has overwhelmed the dam system that was built years back before global warming effects were factored in. Once again, as in the 1930s, we are learning the hard way.

Uh yea, because the climate has never changed in the 4.5 billion years the earth has existed, everything was perfect until we started keeping records about a hundred years ago (one really old mans lifetime).  For cripes sake, there's fish fossils at the tops of the rocky mountains, but I'm sure the author of this article would tell you that was from the great flood when Noah had 2 of every species on his boat, not because two of earth's ever moving plates pushing into eachother and heaving a once ocean floor upward into what is now the rockies over the course of millions of years.

According to Greg Pederson of the Survey, the warming trend they found means that precipitation over the mountains is more often falling as rain instead of snow, and when it does fall as snow, it's melting more quickly.

And it's not just Rockies' snow mass or polar icecaps that are melting faster than usual; it's also snowpack up north that feeds into rivers such as the Mouse.

Thawing is happening differently now, faster, more all at once, and the unusual combination of heavy snowfall and quicker snowmelt is more than our flood control system was designed to handle.

In evaluating the current flooding, we need to factor in global warming. The evidence suggests that the "perfect storm" we are experiencing is not just Mother Nature's doing; we've all had a hand in creating it.

differently according to when?  the last few decades? as opposed to what? the last few billion years?  I love how people use the word "trend" based on 100 years (yes just one longer than average human lifetime) of record keeping.  thats like walking outside in ND in January and stating that ND is always -30 below and snow covered as a fact, then cry "it's the end of the world" when it all starts melting in march.

The polar ice caps have melted and refroze dozens of times since water first collected on this planet 4 billion years ago, the earth has been completely encased in ice and completely burnt to a crisp and it will probably do it over and over again wether we are here or not.  the ever moving tectonic plates are constantly moving and folding under one another forever recycling the surface of this planet, creating new mountains, new islands, new continents, new oceans, and yes...new climates.

One massive solar flare and the tires on this guy's Prius will melt off just like the ones on my pickup.

speaking of a prius, lets go blow $20,000 on a new "green" car and get rid of the one thats already paid off (thats called going green and saving money in the 21st century)  everyone in Hollywood is doing it, go buy that "green" car and continue to heat and cool that 50,000 sq foot mansion that uses a small community's share of water just to keep the grass green.

They are still doing research on "cow farts"...yes cow farts, governments around the world are spending money for "researchers" to determine how detrimental livestock is to the enviroment from all the methane it produces.  Ok so what about the millions of wildebeast farting their way accross africa along with every other plant eating mammal on earth?  what about all the trillions of tons of decomposing plant and animal matter constantly producing more methane in 5 minutes than all the cow farts in the last hundred years combined.  yes some of your tax dollars have paid for this crap.

the only fact about the whole global warming going green climate change subject is that its a giant agenda filled steamy pile of bull$#!& ! that 99% of americans are eating with a spoon and a smile.

You forgot humans in that equation. I knew a feller that counted his farts one day. The total was 147. Could be why the Libs want to eradicate some homosapiens.

read in the forum today that sunspots significantly change temps on earth, more sunspots mean warmer temps, and vice versa, a few years ago when the global warming thing was really being broght out by the media and Al Gourde, we had more sun spots. and climate is defined as the average weather and temps over a vvvvvvveeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyyyyyy lllllllllllllllllllooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggg period of time, not 100 years.

This La Nina sucks! as far as the rest of it.....who knows. We all know what is bad for the earth, well maybe some of what is bad. Listening to the radio on Thursday night they were talking about the demise of the bees. One idea was cellular phone transmissions and another was GMO seed. Do people just look around and say " well that's new so it has to be the reason why". We should conserve our natural resources and find ways not to pollute our planet. The planet and nature will keep on changing no matter what. It would be good to feel like we weren't the reason on some part of the "change".

We have been close to a low of sunspot activity recently, sunspot activity cycles through every 11 years. Athough scientists predict that activity will go into a sort of "hibernation" which some think will significantly cool off earth but like during the so-called "little ice age" in the 16-1700s. Most dont think it will be that extreme however. Again this is just a new prediction based on observations. One of the cool things I heard about when reading about this was all the things that scientists actually observe when looking at the sun, polar activity, flares, storms, a jet stream etc..

I dont go around guessing cup sizes either I just know a nice rack when I see one.

This subject is one that has no concrete answer either way. My take on it is that man and our egos simply cannot accept our insignificance. Thus many must have the warming of our planet be man made. Yet others have an internal fear that calamity is going to come. Then there are the others who for various reasons have no instinct of preservation will use up the last of everything with no thought to the future.

Is the earth warming? It has been on a steady up tick since the ice age ended, with some dips like the little ice age. Man has been able to record temps since the 1800's and today more accurately than ever before. We have theory on what temps where in the past and we have computer projections of what conditions will be in the future.

The key to all of this is man themselves, when it comes to data we can and do make mistakes, and sometimes the data is manipulated to arrive at a pre determined outcome. Manipulation is not limited to one side of this debate. What this has done is cloud the issue and allowed it to become a political money machine.

What I do know is that if the data is correct,  our earth has been a lot warmer overall than it is today and is projected to be in the future.CO2 levels as well have been higher by 20 times with life flourishing on the planet. I have a hard time accepting a lot of the so called AGW talk as being legitimate because science has always created a crisis in order to generate funding.

So is the flooding a result of global warming, I think it is, just as it has in the past and will again in the future. Is the global warming a natural trend or man made that has no answer!

In my lifetime I have seen fence row to fence row farming and the return of CRP and game to the landscape.Now we face again the prosepect of fence row to fence row again! Sportsman are our own worst enemy in that we fail to look forward and focus to much on the now!

  Yeah, your way too educated for me to even comment on this subject.  You are wrong on your theory about cooling oceans.  What happens is that oceans warm and becomes less dense and occupy more surface area, thus changing weather, climate, life, and many other things.  The oceans will rise from more runoff, but its not enough "cooling" to overcome the overall rise in atmosphereic temperature. 
  But anyway, you live the way you want to, but I promise you have zero effect on the earth by conserving what you use in your daily life.  But if it makes you feel all warm and cuddly inside by all means.  The earth goes through natural cycles and will warm and cool all on its own.
   You don't have to have a degree in science of climate change to know that whatever the weather pattern is it will be blamed on global warming, if its dry, cool, hot, wet, stormy, etc.....

Al Gore is getting richer and richer flying around in a fricking private 737 jet lecturing on how the rest of us Americans should cease our use of fossil fuels and how America is the cause of global warming but nobody ever says anything about the deforestation of the rain forests the past 50 years in South America. Trees convert CO2 to oxygen, the rain forests have gotten significantly smaller the same time the CO2 levels have risen, I wonder if anyone ever looked at that as being part of the cause?

Sure some short term negative effects occured, but the ocean will be back to normal soon.  I'm not saying pollute to your hearts content, but its not like we can destroy the whole planet by driving a pickup truck, and not recycling our aluminum cans.

Yes, understood. Crops also convert CO2 into oxygen and retain the carbon however Al Gore and his cronnies never talk about that stuff, just about how we must stop burning coal, diesel and gasoline. As they fly around in private jets spreading the gloom and doom word.

Climate change occurs when other variables enter the formula.  When the solar activity increases the planet warms.  Types of emissions into our atmospere such as volcanoes erupting reflect sunlight and cool the earth.  Green house gases emitted warm the planet by letting heat in but not allowing it to exit at the same rate.
Climate has changed inthe past due to things such as the meteorite hitting the Yucatan and essentially destorying the majority of life  forms at that time.
We are most definitely a player now with the co2 emissions we're are releasing.  To say climate changed before and it's naturalso don't be concerned is rediculous to me.  That's like saying it's flooded in the past so it's just a natural phenomenon.  That doesn't mean we can't do the samew by knocking out a dam. 
Remember what happened to life in many cases in the past when the climatic tables were tipped.  In many cases it was extinction or near extinction for many species.  Everyones' heard the fringes making outlandish statements but in truth just look at which national scientific institutions endorse the fact  of anthropagneic climate change.  There are no national or major scientific facilities that dispute it.

fish your statement is so full of misconceptions it is hilarious. You talk of CO2 as if it is the driver of all climate change. What is known today about CO2 is not much more than we knew in 1900 in regards to its affect on climate. There are those who theorize that CO2 is the driver and as concentrations go up so does temp. Others theorize that CO2 level rise is a result of lagging effects of cooling periods.

http://geocraft.com/WVFossils/Carboniferous_climate.html

Here is just one credible link to dispute this and it explains it well the impact that man is actually having on the normal CO2 levels. I am not posting this to say one is right and the other wrong. Simply pointing out that your conclusions are not factual based but driven by the rhetoric you have listened to.

From the research paper summary I posted above! The clearest statement on climate issues I have ever seen!

What will our climate be like in the future? That is the question scientists are asking and seeking answers to currently. The causes of "global warming" and climate change are today being popularly described in terms of human activities. However, climate change is something that happens constantly on its own. If humans are in fact altering Earth's climate with our cars, electrical powerplants, and factories these changes must be larger than the natural climate variability in order to be measurable. So far the signal of a discernible human contribution to global climate change has not emerged from this natural variability or background noise.
