Because You Ate A Steak From A Moo Cow, ‘Climate Change’ Moved A 620 Ton Rock In Ireland

According to Cult of Climastrology doctrine, the Earth is always supposed to stay the same. The same temperature, same weather patterns, animals never change, it’s always the same. Well, I’m blaming your for this

A storm moved a 620-tonne rock in Ireland, a stunning new climate change omen

Along the rocky coasts of Ireland’s Aran Islands, scientists have found a new demonstration of the immense power of ocean waves – and a possible hint of what we should fear if climate change makes coastal storms more intense.

A 620-tonne boulder – equivalent in mass to about 90 large African elephants – moved several metres on the island of Inishmore in the winter of 2013-2014 after being slammed by powerful coastal storm waves, according to the research led by Ronadh Cox, a geoscientist at Williams College.

It was just one of over 1000 boulders that moved along Ireland’s coasts during the storms, many of them quite large, Cox said. (snip)

“There were boulders that were created from bedrock that were ripped up and disaggregated and the pieces flung into the boulder ridge at 90 metres inland and 50 metres above sea level.”

The discovery could help reset our assumptions about how to interpret a variety of mysterious rocks littered along shorelines around the world, which scientists have traditionally linked to powerful tsunami waves.

So, these types of things have happened before. And they thought it happened due to tsunamis. But, waves in water are rather powerful. Anyone who’s visited the ocean and gotten nailed by a wave knows this. The team of scientists decided to do some field research, and found that rocks and boulders were being moved by, get this, waves. Strong Atlantic waves. So, of course, we have to jump to ‘climate change’

The real question raised by the work, though, is what it says about the future of climate change.

If seas rise and storms worsen with a changing climate – as some predict – then understanding the damage that can be wrought by battering waves will be important, Cox said.

“The more intense the storms, the higher the wave energies, so the likelihood of these stronger wave energies hitting in other places becomes greater, as well,” she said.

No matter what, Warmists have to make it all about their pet cult and fearmonger.

    TEACH typed, ignorantly:

    According to “TEACH anti-science slur” the Earth is always supposed to stay the same.

    No. But the global average surface temperature does not normally increase by degrees C over a short period of time. The CO2 we’re adding to the atmosphere is causing the Earth to warm. We are changing the Earth’s climate – a stable climate for the past 12,000 years – the entire time capsule of human civilization. Scientists, whom you distrust, assert our actions are driving the Earth into a new epoch, the Anthropocene.

    • Larry says:

      How many scientists “assert our actions are driving the Earth into a new epoch, . . .”? Would it be about the same number of scientists who argued that man-made “global warming” was a new issue to be concerned with when the original paper was published about the matter? And, if we’re responsible for “global warming” just how does that explain concurrent warming on the other planets?

      You have a right to your own opinion, you don’t have a right to your own version of facts.

  2. Jeffery says:

    And, if we’re responsible for “global warming” just how does that explain concurrent warming on the other planets?

    How certain are you that the other planets and their moons are warming? Scientists who study such things are much less certain.

    And why do you believe “measurements” from Mars, Triton and Pluto but not those taken with thermometers on Earth?

    And why do you ignore that 100 other solar system bodies show no evidence of warming?

  3. Jl says:

    Sorry, the only empirical evidence of man changing anything is a greening of the earth. The rest is just assertions not born out by facts

  4. Jeffery says:

    the only empirical evidence of man changing anything is a greening of the earth.

    So you admit that man’s burning of fossil fuels is causing the rapid increase in CO2?

    That’s a start.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Define “rapid”, little guy.
      That would be a start.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      So you admit that man’s burning of fossil fuels is causing the rapid increase in CO2?

      Fact is, little guy,

      Carbon dioxide levels have indeed changed for various reasons, human and otherwise, just as they have throughout geologic time. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, the CO2 content of the atmosphere has increased by about 120 part per million (ppm), most of which is likely due to human-caused CO2 emissions. The RATE of growth during this century has been about 0.55%/year. However, there is no proof that CO2 is the main driver of global warming. As measured in ice cores dated over many thousands of years, CO2 levels move up and down AFTER the temperature has done so, and thus are the RESULT OF, NOT THE CAUSE of warming. Geological field work in recent sediments confirms this causal relationship.

      There is solid evidence that, as temperatures move up and down naturally and cyclically through solar radiation, orbital and galactic influences, the warming surface layers of the earth’s oceans expel more CO2 as a result.

      You’re welcome, little dumbass.

  5. Jeffery says:

    And if you finally admit that man is causing the increase in CO2, then you’ll admit that oceans are absorbing CO2, reducing the pH. Isn’t that a “change”?

  6. Jeffery says:

    j,

    Do you deny that the oceans are absorbing CO2?

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Knew the little guy couldn’t back his claim that man-made CO2 is changing the pH of the oceans.

  7. Jeffery says:

    J,

    Do you deny that the ocean pH has dropped?

    I ate steak from a moo cow tonight. And a nice salad, and peas and cauliflower. And beer. And scotch for after dinner. And I deserved it after playing 36 holes, then riding 16 mountain miles on the mountain bike. Steak…for when you deserve it.

  9. Jeffery says:

    Anyone? Anyone care to defend the claim that “greening” is the only Earthly “change” caused by man?

    Didn’t think so.

  10. Dachs_dude says:

    So Jeffrey: Tell us un-enlightened souls exactly how you’ve changed YOUR lifestyle to become “carbon neutral”. Remember, some websites say we have to cut back to emissions that were at the year 1750 level to avoid catastrophe.
    So a small list of the things you’ve done to practice what you preach is in order. Otherwise I’ll place you into that barrel, (make of recycled plastic, of course), of Climate Change hypocrites like Jane Goodall who, in a video circulating on Facebook said, among other eugenically inspired things was this: “I’d really like to reduce the carbon footprint of OTHER people.”

    • Jeffery says:

      dachs,

      So you prefer to change the subject to personal attacks? Typical for the folks here.

      We’re not obligated to share personal details with you. But nice try.

      Are you a conservative? Do you drive on roads that we all pay for? Have you ever accepted government funds of any kind? Attended public schools? Breathed our clean air? Do you or your parents or kids accept any form of assistance – Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment? Do you have bank accounts backed up by the federal government?

      Lest you forgot:

      the only empirical evidence of man changing anything is a greening of the earth

      Do YOU think the “greening” is the only change man has had on Earth? The J that made the claim has hightailed it out of here, leaving clean-up to his fluffers.

      Obviously, there have been other changes than “greening”. He knows, you know it, TEACH knows, so we can move on.

      Did you have something relevant you wished to discuss?

      • gitarcarver says:

        So you prefer to change the subject to personal attacks? Typical for the folks here.

        Your response to a post that doesn’t attack you as a person at all, is to make up the accusation that you were attacked.

        Playing the victim?

        Or being a liar?

      • Dachs_dude says:

        Deflection. A trick used by magicians, hucksters and con-men since time began.

        So no change in your lifestyle huh?

        And what’s this: ” Are you a conservative? Do you drive on roads that we all pay for? Have you ever accepted government funds of any kind? Attended public schools? Breathed our clean air? Do you or your parents or kids accept any form of assistance – Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment? Do you have bank accounts backed up by the federal government? ”

        Is that some sort of answer? I pay taxes. They finance these programs and more. They do NOT have anything to do with forcing people to pay large sums of money for their “sin” of living a first world lifestyle in the first world.

        Since you have nothing to add, nor do you wish to discuss anything YOU’VE done to personally combat “climate change” other than to state over and over the mantra that climate change is caused mostly by man. Since you believe that; belief being the operative word here, the onus is upon you to show us how you personally have made penance for your sin against Earth.

        Otherwise, you are proving that you are a hypocrite who just wants OTHER PEOPLE to pay for their sin against YOU for having what? A bigger car? A bigger House? More money?

        Newsflash: Envy and greed and coveting your neighbors stuff is NOT very appealing.
        Newsflash: Being generous with other people’s money doesn’t make you a good person.

  11. Jeffery says:

    dachs,

    So you’re a hypocrite. What’s new…

    Anyway, do YOU believe that the “greening” of the Earth is man’s only impact? Or do you prefer to discuss my small carbon footprint, and if so, why?

    • Dachs_dude says:

      No, I’m not a hypocrite as I don’t believe that man is causing any “warming” of the planet. People who claim mankind is warming the planet and then advocate for policies that force others to pay are hypocrites. If the shoe fits….
      Nor did I say that the “”greening” of the Earth is man’s only impact”. That was someone else.
      Sure tell us all about how you’ve CUT you carbon usage these last 10 years or so. Since you believe it’s man’s fault, tell us about what you’ve done. And we’re looking for the type of changes that you certainly must advocate for others.

    • Dachs_dude says:

      Jeffrey — Like a small child, you don’t debate or answer questions, you post the same thing over and over. Does Soros pay you for these lame “debates”? Or is this yesterday’s 4AM talking point of the day from Occupy Democrats?

  12. Jeffery says:

    Sorry dachs,

    You’re going to have a circle jerk of one.

  13. Dachs_dude says:

    OK, Jeffrey. Not only didn’t you answer any questions, but you couldn’t backup your claim as listed:

    And if you finally admit that man is causing the increase in CO2, then you’ll admit that oceans are absorbing CO2, reducing the pH. Isn’t that a “change”? — Only you said that the oceans are absorbing CO2, reducing the pH. However, you were unable to back that up with facts or references.

    So, good luck convincing your fellow americans to empty their wallets and give up their freedoms for your unsubstantiated claims or claims made only after “adjusting” historical temperature data, (always adjusting downward to make the latter years seem hotter).

    Sham and scam. That’s what liberalism is.

  14. Jeffery says:

    OK dachs, sorry to interrupt your self congratulations, but you didn’t know that the oceans’ pH is dropping??? Yikes. Try Google. This is not in dispute.

    And seriously, you don’t realize that the Earth is warming, that it’s not a hoax??!!?? Wow. Just wow.

    Sorry dude, I cannot help you.

    • Dachs_dude says:

      Wow! You really are the king of strawmen around here.

      Earth is warming. Currently we’re coming out of a period known as “The Little Ice Age”. How much of that warming is caused by man is in dispute. Before we impoverish and enslave billions of people, wouldn’t it be wise to be sure about the fix, (if there is one needed) isn’t worse than the disease, (a natural warming cycle).

      But hey. Why not send YOUR money to the UN dictator of your choice?

      Sorry man, but socialism is dying and people like you should have studied something else besides the politics of envy.

  15. Jeffery says:

    Speaking of Straw Men,

    How much of that warming is caused by man is in dispute.

    Only by the American far-right.

    Before we impoverish and enslave billions of people

    More breathless hyperbole (actually just demagogic lying) from the American far-right.

    Do you consider a tax on carbon pollution to be “socialism”? Some here consider all taxation to be “socialism”. Perhaps you as well?

    • Dachs_dude says:

      You’ve really swallowed the kool-aid.

      So how much of a carbon tax are you willing to pay? $8/gallon gas? $9/heating oil/diesel? More for food, electricity etc? How much are you willing to pay to “cure the planet.

      Explain how this will or will not impact your personal budget.
