I don't see how magnetic pole reversal (which has not happened in the last 780,000 years) diminishes the likelihood that recent climate changes are man made?

My point is: there are so many variables, how can anyone possibly say that any one particular thing is causing global warming? How can you make observations and come to an assumption based on experiments where you control zero variables?

Is the earth temperature rising? Yes. Are we at least partially at fault? Probably. Are there other things that are warming the earth also? Most likely.

How much of that blame/cause belongs to each variable?

Another global waming prediction bites the dust.
A paper released on Feb 9th this year says out of the 9 atoll islands global waming scientists say are most threatened by climate change driven sea level rise are actually seeing increased land area on 8 of the 9 atolls.
I thought temperatures were rapidly increasing, rapidly melting artic ice, rapidly causing sea levels to rise.
This seems to suggest that the fanatical dooms day global warming believers are all smoking crack.
I can't wait to see how the believers spin this one.
You would think after being wrong on virtually every prediction thus far they wouldhave learned by now just to keep quiet.

Oh really Mr. Pan, if that is your real name?! Where is your source?! You don't have one, do you?! Meanwhile I uncovered the real truth, the truth you don't want us to know! You won't believe #7!

Or something. I did not read it.

Yeah that's it, them atolls that are supposed to be getting swallowed up by the sea are getting bigger.
That's a real inconvenient.

My point is that magnetic variance can be taken out of the equation.
It is not to blame for recent changes, and the report suggest it won't have much effect if it does occur.

We may be flogging the horse, along with volcanoes and who knows what. Maybe the volcanoes hurt the horse more than we do - but we're flogging it nonetheless. We may not be the single cause that kills it, but we do hurt it.

Are you flogging it with a stick or a pool noodle? Or a howitzer?

It may be too little too late, like everywhere else, but they're trying.
