I was saving the one about our solar system transitioning into intergalactic space for later.

SO2 is still falling, even with China and India. And China is going clean energy faster than anyone else.



The increase in Chinese emissions does not match the decrease in Western emissions... there is still a net loss.



Interestingly, denier pages are obsessed over SO2, as if climate scientists were completely ignoring it (they're not... we've been talking about the effects of SO2 regulations and how they affect warming for decades).

And here: is an example of China actually cleaning up:

I have never posted about SO2 before, because it's too easy to track.
Plus it looks like those charts only go to about 2010, which was the middle of a world wide economic slow down.
Less economic demand, less energy use, less pollution.
Looks like Indias use of energy and likely their growth exploded right through the world wide slowdown like it never even happen as far as they are concerned.
If India stayed on that course they have likely caught up to the US, may even surpassed us.

China is destroying their environment to go green, kind of ironic.

And if there weren't enough moving pieces already, here's another phenomenon that is causing change. https://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/fe...eReversal.html

Again, my opinion on global warming: humans may be affecting our climate, but to say we are causing global warming is incredibly naive.

There will likely be little to no measurable increase in radiation at ground level. But higher up solar radiation will will very likely penetrate the upper atmosphere, like cosmic rays do when solar wind is lacking and increase upper level clouds. Causing some cooling, but shouldn't be anything near mass extinction level.

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.
