A mirage to call one's own, why thank you Ben! :-)
And thanks, Nora.
What varied and unexpected delights in this thread!
[redacted, must have been a transient glitch]
Fantail…. boy they move fast
So do trees, eh? ;-)
Jackson, I think it's time for an Autumn thread, eh?
Love your recent skies, BTW. :-)
We will wait patiently. No rush just know that we do miss your contributions
And so pleased to hear you house is progressing well, David.
“So you want us to adapt to something you claim isn’t happening? Huh?”
Those are your exact words. You made up the bit about the claim that climate change is not happening. It is clearly a false accusation.
You then revised it to include the word anthropogenic and FG asserted that all organisms change their environment. Climate is a major , significant part of that environment. It can’t be much clearer.
Yes, everything is very clear. You're a climate change denier who lacks the courage to stand up for your beliefs. Grow a backbone.
Just calling you on the false accusation; it is in no way nasty, but you may not enjoy it much.
How is my accusation false?
All organisms alter their environment. It is therefore impossible that the sum total of humanity and everything that it does will not have an effect, however imperceptible , or swamped by natural variation. The question is , does it matter? It is inevitable, that is certain.
These are weasel words. If you can't answer a simple and pivotal yes or no question, I don't know how you expect the rest of us to discuss more complex issues with you.
You’re putting words in my mouth; don’t bother. Science is not about belief anyway : it’s about knowledge.
Change the subject? Yeah right. Climate is not something theoretical ; it’s always there ; proximate; and always changing. Perhaps you haven’t noticed , or it makes no difference to you.
Do you personally believe that anthropogenic climate change is happening? Yes or no?
And there's no need to be nasty.
You haven’t been keeping up at all. FG has made no such statement. Climate is always changing. Farmers have always adapted. You can too.
What changes have you made since 1999?
You don't believe that anthropogenic climate change is real. In this you differ from accepted science, and when this is pointed out to you, you change the subject.
So you want us to adapt to something you claim isn't happening? Huh?
