DANVERS, Mass. – Maybe these bees were too tired to fly for themselves. A gang of honeybees landed on the wing of a plane used for flight school training at Beverly Airport. At first, the 10,000 or so bees swarmed over the left side of the aircraft, then landed on top of the left wing. The owner of the flight center called police, who said to call local bee removal expert Al Wilkins.

Wilkins used a specially designed vacuum to suck the bees off the plane, and then relocated them to hives where they will produce honey.

Wilkins guessed that the queen may have stopped to rest on the plane, and the other bees congregated around to protect her.

You mean that there's global warming (i.e. global climate change) between ice ages? Really? Tell me, "Mr. Don't Ignore The Facts", what caused global warming between the last set of ice ages...or from the last ice age until the 1700's? You know, before green house gasses, pollution and all that stuff? Before the canned hairspray craze of the 80's?

Could this not be nothing more than the natural cycle of the Earth? Who's to say that in between the ice ages, there weren't accelerated growth spurts where the global climate shift got really warm, really fast...or (during the down cycle) where it cooled really fast as well? Could a rapid acceleration/deceleration of temperature over a relatively short span of time not have caused a massive wipe out of the last dominant species (Dinosaurs)?

Present me with some real facts to back up the facts. Don't give me facts and speculate what those facts mean as a counter to other arguments.

The same phenomena is currently happening on Mars at basically the same rate too.

Mars is being hit by rapid climate change and it is happening so fast that the red planet could lose its southern ice cap, writes Jonathan Leake.

Scientists from Nasa say that Mars has warmed by about 0.5C since the 1970s. This is similar to the warming experienced on Earth over approximately the same period.

Oh BTW, the Earth had a mini-Ice Age just 350+ years ago, during what's called the Maunder Minimum, when the Sun had next to no sunspots for SEVENTY YEARS. Some astromomers are predicting something similar with this current cycle of low sunspot activity, though not as bad or as long. If that happens, global warming goes right out the window.

Then it will be right back to this, which, incidentally enough, is what they scared the shit out of me personally with as an elementary school student at the time:

http://www.denisdutton.com/cooling_world.htm

To scientists, these seemingly disparate incidents represent the advance signs of fundamental changes in the world’s weather. The central fact is that after three quarters of a century of extraordinarily mild conditions, the earth’s climate seems to be cooling down. Meteorologists disagree about the cause and extent of the cooling trend, as well as over its specific impact on local weather conditions. But they are almost unanimous in the view that the trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century....

....Climatologists are pessimistic that political leaders will take any positive action to compensate for the climatic change, or even to allay its effects. They concede that some of the more spectacular solutions proposed, such as melting the Arctic ice cap by covering it with black soot or diverting arctic rivers, might create problems far greater than those they solve. But the scientists see few signs that government leaders anywhere are even prepared to take the simple measures of stockpiling food or of introducing the variables of climatic uncertainty into economic projections of future food supplies. The longer the planners delay, the more difficult will they find it to cope with climatic change once the results become grim reality.

U.S. agricultural output decimated by the turn of the century as a result of a long-term and drastic cooling trend? FAIL.

Wake me after the current human-induced global warming trend ends and the next human-induced "ice age" begins. :coffee:

'Quiet Sun' baffling astronomers

The Sun is the dimmest it has been for nearly a century.

There are no sunspots, very few solar flares - and our nearest star is the quietest it has been for a very long time.

The observations are baffling astronomers, who are due to study new pictures of the Sun, taken from space, at the UK National Astronomy Meeting.

The Sun normally undergoes an 11-year cycle of activity. At its peak, it has a tumultuous boiling atmosphere that spits out flares and planet-sized chunks of super-hot gas. This is followed by a calmer period.

Last year, it was expected that it would have been hotting up after a quiet spell. But instead it hit a 50-year low in solar wind pressure, a 55-year low in radio emissions, and a 100-year low in sunspot activity.

The world is warming, but only SLIGHTLY, and it has dips, as well.

If you start looking at temperatures from 1880 til now, and use the US data (which is far and away the most accurate), were only talking about 1 degree, I believe. There were actually warmer periods, too, like between the 30's and 70's.

Antarctic ice packs have been melting for 6000 years. Don't think we had much to do with that. Antarctica also has about 90% of the worlds ice, so if a glacier in Greenland melts a little, it's really not a huge deal. Toss in the fact that the ice is actually thickening in many parts of Antarctic, and, well....there's probably not much to worry about with rising seal levels.

NASA's Latest Discovery: Sun Heats the Earth

A study from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland looking at climate data over the past century has concluded that solar variation has made a significant impact on the Earth's climate.

The report concludes that evidence for climate changes based on solar radiation can be traced back as far as the Industrial Revolution.

Past research has shown that the sun goes through eleven year cycles. At the cycle's peak, solar activity occurring near sunspots is particularly intense, basking the Earth in solar heat. According to Robert Cahalan, a climatologist at the Goddard Space Flight Center, "Right now, we are in between major ice ages, in a period that has been called the Holocene."

This report may represent the third time that NASA’s DR. James Hansen, Al Gore’s point man on his AGW hoax, has had to backtrack on his claims that humans are responsible for climate change.

In the past Dr. Hansen was forced to admit that 1934, not 1998, was the warmest year on record due to a lack of standardization of weather reporting stations. Hansen also misstated that “October 2008 was the hottest on record,” largely because the data used repeated September’s

Know where Global Warming started? 1988. IPCC, which was created by our wonderful friends at the UN.

In '90 (the work was done in '88) there was a report issued by the IPCC that stated that if there was a man-made effect on the climate, it was to small to detect. The report was ALTERED after it left the hands of the scientists who approved it to actually report the opposite. The IPCC is actually a political body, and not an unbiased scientific organization that it pretends to be.

Dr. Frederick Seitz, past president of the National Academy of Sciences called it "The most disturbing corruption of the scientific process he had ever witnessed".

That single document launched the now trillion dollar industry that is "Man-Made Gloabl Warming". And it's a lie.

He clearly shows ALL of the data (such as that shown earlier in this thread regarding the FACT that the overall temperature of the globe is going down despite the rising CO2 levels...)

As for the "global warming" aspect of this thread, here is my two cents.

It has zero to do with actual Global Warming, its called Pollution Stupid.

The idea of cap and trade, or carbon credits is counter productive to actually helping the environment. It works like this. Company A pollutes alot, Company B pollutes Less. Company A buys credits from Company B to offset its Pollution buy using up the allowed pollution that Company B isn't using. Does this stop Pollution? No, it only costs Company A more to Pollute, but that is still cheaper than changing its business model because it can just raise prices on whatever good or services it is making/providing that causes the pollution in the first place.

How about this. How about we just stop the execessive Pollution? How about that Al? Maybe instead of a company being allowed to pay to dump mercury into the ground water, we force them to STOP DOING IT!!!

That's why I am so against this entire BS Movement. It isn't designed to actually Stop Pollution, its designed to make some people money, and cost other people more money, all the while the consumer gets taxed, has costs go up and is poisoned in the process of paying for this nonsense.

NASA Study Acknowledges Solar Cycle, Not Man, Responsible for Past Warming

Report indicates solar cycle has been impacting Earth since the Industrial Revolution


Some researchers believe that the solar cycle influences global climate changes. They attribute recent warming trends to cyclic variation. Skeptics, though, argue that there's little hard evidence of a solar hand in recent climate changes.

Now, a new research report from a surprising source may help to lay this skepticism to rest. A study from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland looking at climate data over the past century has concluded that solar variation has made a significant impact on the Earth's climate. The report concludes that evidence for climate changes based on solar radiation can be traced back as far as the Industrial Revolution.

Past studies have shown that sunspot numbers correspond to warming or cooling trends. The twentieth century has featured heightened activity, indicating a warming trend.

Solar activity has shown a major spike in the twentieth century, corresponding to global warming.

Please give me the names of the "scientists" who are arguing that he single source of heat in our solar system has little to no hand in the changes of heating on the earth.

Sigh. On the contrary, there's PLENTY of hard evidence this is so, if one can look past the militant enviro-wacko agenda that myopically insists that the human race is destroying the earth and is the only factor that matters in the equation. Once again:

Mars is being hit by rapid climate change and it is happening so fast that the red planet could lose its southern ice cap, writes Jonathan Leake.

Scientists from Nasa say that Mars has warmed by about 0.5C since the 1970s. This is similar to the warming experienced on Earth over approximately the same period.

This is exactly like Eugenics: Widely supported, skeptics were mocked and shouted down, and actually had zero basis in actual fact. It was such an embarrassingly wrong theory that nobody even dares mention it any more.

Global Warming will end exactly the same...but this garbage has a long shelf life.

Sky 'rains tadpoles' over Japan

Residents, officials and scientists have been baffled by the apparent downpour of tadpoles in central Japan's Ishikawa Prefecture. Clouds of dead tadpoles appear to have fallen from the sky in a series of episodes in a number of cities in the region since the start of the month. In one incident, a 55-year-old man who was caught in a tadpole downpour described hearing a strange sound in the parking lot of a civic centre in the city of Nanao. Upon further exploration, he found more than 100 dead tadpoles covering the windshields of cars in an area measuring 10 square metres. Dead tadpole downpours were also reported by local officials 48 hours later in the city of Hakusan in the same prefecture. The raining down of small creatures such as frogs and fish is a rare meteorological phenomenon that is reported from time to time across the world.

There can be no doubt now - the sky gods demand sacrifices. It's a warning.

A FROG that constantly changes colour is being worshipped as a GOD in India.


The frog was a dazzling WHITE colour when Reji, from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, first spotted it.

Then it changed to YELLOW and had gone GREY by the time he got it home

Lift worker Reji added: “By night the frog was dark yellow, and then it became transparent so you could see its internal organs.

"It seemed like a miracle to me that this frog had so many different coats. So now people come to see him and pray to him.”

I was praying to the frog when I noticed that the piece of toast I was eating had an image of the virgin mary on it. I went to grab my camera when I say an image of Jesus in the lens.

Military Hush-Up: Incoming Space Rocks Now Classified

For 15 years, scientists have benefited from data gleaned by U.S. classified satellites of natural fireball events in Earth's atmosphere – but no longer.

Space rocks that explode in the atmosphere are now classified.

That's all well and good, Killer...not to mention TRUE...but the man-made global warming and eco-nutz will just ignore or try to discredit it, despite it coming from freaking NASA and not some two-bit hack "scientist" like a lot of them are.
