Here’s A Handy Dandy Warmist Survival Guide For Christmas Climate Change Discussions

We’re almost to Climate Christmas, folks, just today and tomorrow

Survival Guide For Climate Change Debates

When extended family gets together over the holidays, dinner conversations can sometimes be awkward — such as when your uncle from South Carolina talks politics with your niece from the Bay Area. When thorny questions about climate change arise over your Christmas ham, we’ve got you covered!

Mostly because Warmists/Liberals need talking points, being sheeple and unable to think for themselves.

1. Is carbon dioxide actually bad for you?

No. Carbon dioxide is what we humans (and all animals) breathe out. It is essential for plant life. But carbon dioxide has been in a specific concentration in our atmosphere — within the range of 170 to 300 parts per million — for 800,000 years. Suddenly, in the brief couple hundred years since the industrial revolution, that concentration has shot up. This is largely due to our burning fossil fuels for energy. Our atmosphere now contains 400 parts per million of carbon dioxide. Although carbon dioxide itself is not bad for us, too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere leads to global warming — and that, my friends, is most certainly bad for all of us.

So, it’s not bad for us (kudos to writer Molly Rauch for constantly calling it carbon dioxide, rather than the unscientific “carbon”), but because it might get warm it’s bad for us. Despite Mankind, and life, typically doing better in warmth than cold. And roughly 90% of the last million years was a glacial period. How would life do as glaciers roll down from the Arctic?

2. How can carbon dioxide be called “pollution” if we breathe it out every day?

Pollution is a process that makes any aspect of our environment — our land, air, water, or homes — dirty, unsafe or unsuitable. Scientists are united in their understanding that our unprecedented and ever-rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide are already causing life-threatening changes to our climate. Carbon dioxide emissions are making our planet unsafe for us and, most importantly, our children.

Good thing rising CO2 levels have essentially done away with warming over the last 17 years. Because an increase of 1.4F over 160 years is “life threatening”.

3. What is President Obama’s Climate Plan and will it actually help?

Nope, stopping there, you’re welcome to head over to the HuffPost if you want, and see the answer to #3 and the others. If you, dear Climate Realist, want to answer the Warmists during our Christmas gatherings, simply ask the Warmists if they plan on giving up fossil fuels themselves, and make their own lives carbon neutral. The typical answer will be along the lines of “it’s not about me, it’s about all of us”, along with other deflections as to why they refuse to practice what they preach.

PS: Do you know what Obama’s plan is? Jacking up the cost of living for Everyone Else while taking long fossil fueled flights to Hawaii. This is the man with the highest carbon footprint in the world.

The Pirate typed: “Mostly because Warmists/Liberals need talking points, being sheeple and unable to think for themselves.”

What you call denier “thinking” is really just making shit up. Actual climate realists recognize that what you call “talking points” are actually facts – a commodity that deniers possess in short supply.

You didn’t refute point 1 or 2 so I suspect you can’t refute the others either. You’re stuck on using rhetorical tricks rather than arguing evidence as your side lost the scientific argument long ago. You are reduced to winning the political argument, which you are doing. Congratulations.

Your 5 readers have heard your “since science realists drive to work global warming is a hoax” tale a few dozen times and likely believe it makes sense. It doesn’t. It’s a form of ad hominem argument where you accuse your opponents of hypocrisy without addressing their arguments.

Same as this argument: Since conservatives accept Medicare etc their arguments against the welfare state are invalid. Aren’t conservatives who accept gov’t help hypocrites?

or: Since conservative Christians hate the poor and worship the wealthy, the antithesis of Jesus’s teachings, their arguments about religion are invalid.

Sorry, that last one is sadly, true.

Merry Christmas.

I have to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing this blog.

I’m hoping to see the same high-grade blog posts by you in the future
as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has motivated me to get my own, personal website now ;)

J-We’re still waiting for the evidence that CO2 is the cause of the warming that’s stopped, and if so, what percentage of the warming-5%, 20%, 50%, 75%? And speaking of lack of data, please show your’s for your unsupported and gross over-generalization “conservatives hate the poor and worship the wealthy” statement. This should be good. Back here on earth it’s called “conservatives have different policy ideas on how to help the poor than liberals.” But your statement wins the drama queen award of the week, so congrats.

What you call denier “thinking” is really just making shit up.

This coming from folks who believe that the missing warmth is magically doing a Where’s Waldo? in the deep oceans, and that warmth creates cold and snow.

I just look a old Jeff’s comments and wonder about what a poor life the little guy has. He is clearly full of hate and most of it is secondary to his ignorance and adherence to false information from the left. His life must really be lacking to try and raise a response from strangers. I used to live next to the KKK office and would see the hate from that group and it was in all respects the same as old Jeff. If I were religious, I would ask that everyone pray for him. But, since I am not, I only hope that he gets some joy with the season.

Denial? So what? Let’s burn all the carbon on the planet and let the temperatures increases another 9 degrees C, 15 times greater.

A few millionaires might survive and, in a billion years or so, everything will be good again. We get new species, and maybe mankind (if it survives) won’t be so evil and stupid.

Pirate,

You talk in FOX “news” aphorisms. Where’s Waldo? Cold in winter refutes global warming!!

You’ve lost the scientific argument and are reduced to name-calling and lies.

Your guardian commenters have nothing to add except more insults. Yes, science is hard work, but if you are motivated NOT to understand you will not.

Thank you for the laugh on this Christmas day Jeffy.

That really was funny.
