In the South, the North however is shrinking. It’s why Alaska has consistent access to the Northwest passage now for shipping.
Warming doesn’t preclude record cold. Rather, you should ask the question, which sorts of records are we seeing more of?
Are we seeing more record droughts than rains or snows?
Are we seeing more record heat waves than cold snaps?
And the answer is yes; the first categories are more than double the rate of the latter.
Which means we are warming, and that Gore is simply using worst case scenario to be an alarmist.
This *selectively" forgets that most large creatures who exist on the earth, are animals we’ve domesticated.
97% of animals are either us, our pets, or our cattle. Only 3% of animals live in nature.
Also again, the composition of CO2 isotopes. We are seeing a higher and higher % of CO2-12 (which get there by burning mummified plant matter), when the kind that exists naturally in the atmosphere is CO2-13.
This isn’t really a talking point, as we haven’t had equipment in lower parts of these planets atmosphere to detect anything either way.
For Neptune, it was simply a change in seasons (it has very long seasons), for Jupiter, it was simply a prediction based on storms on its surface combining.
The Sun’s activity has been going down regardless, so it can’t explain what’s going on, even if planets were warming.
And Again, if solar activity was to blame for our warming; why are our lower atmospheric layers warming first?
No tiny, the real hoax, is the idea that this is a “bigger crisis than anything humanity faces” (it’s not), or that we would get a better result by submitting everything to central planning or widespread energy-conversion plans (we won’t.)
This is politics hijacking science to assert more control, in alliance with neurotic environmentalists, in the throes of asceticism, insisting that humanity must repent for its “crimes against nature”.
These things are happening, it just doesn’t constitute the excuse for their plans they insist it is.
