Discussion: c l i m a t e change
There could well be a case to be made for the content of this graphic, in that it purports there is no climate crisis:
Surely, in the northern hemisphere, warmer temperatures help our survival, especially during the colder six months out of the year.
Our grain production has been increasing.
Our droughts have been decreasing.
Didn't we learn in our 20th century science classes at school that CO2 was necessary in order for plants to grow?
What's wrong with this picture? Comments welcome for discussion.
Excellent. I will be back to opine when I'm eating less corn on the cob!

I think this is EXACTLY where the discussion of climate science has needed to go.
To BEGIN WITH, we need LONG-TERM understanding of climate, including both ICE AGES (which we are in now), CATASTROPHIC COLD DEATH (as may have happened in Earth's past, leading to massive extinctions), and CATASTROPHIC HEAT DEATH (as part of solar senescence), so that we can understand RELATIVE RISKS. None of that is possible while we are mesmerized by the molehill of anthropogenic global warming in the MOUNTAIN range of heat death, including the GRAND CANYON of ice ages.
An open admission that the term "global greening" is beautiful propaganda - just like "global warming" is. That said, the idea of "global greening" has a core virtue - it points out that, in the SMALL climate changes we observe NOW, and which are actually possible by humans, WARMING with MORE atmospheric CO2 is more likely to be beneficial, generally, to life on the planet, while cooling will be - as it always has been - problematic for life.
Warmer climates with more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere supported ABUNDANT life on this planet. Colder climates with less carbon dioxide always caused MASSIVE EXTINCTIONS and created large regions, both cold and largely devoid of life. Sudden events which led to sharp, short cooling likewise led to mass extinctions.
Global COOLING? Be careful what you wish for, proggies!
Churchmouse's graphic says cold temperatures kill 20 times more than heat. Leftists are ignoring that we are in a Grand Solar Minimum (2020-2053), when temperatures will be cooler and the jet stream will be less stable, allowing for more weather extremes like the recent single-digit temperatures in the South. This can lead to food shortages and all kinds of related problems, and people need to be preparing for this instead of worryong about warming that isn't happening.
In this editorial I will demonstrate with newly discovered solar activity proxy-magnetic field that the Sun has entered into the modern Grand Solar Minimum (2020–2053) that will lead to a significant reduction of solar magnetic field and activity like during Maunder minimum leading to noticeable reduction of terrestrial temperature.
During these grand solar minima, there is a significant reduction of solar magnetic field and solar irradiance, which impose the reduction of terrestrial temperatures derived for these periods from the analysis of terrestrial biomass during the past 12,000 or more years. The most recent grand solar minimum occurred during Maunder Minimum (1645–1710), which led to reduction of solar irradiance by 0.22% from the modern one and a decrease of the average terrestrial temperature by 1.0–1.5°C.
Since the Left is touting the opposite of what science says, I can only conclude that they have an agenda that is not in our best interest but that serves some interest of theirs. We knew this anyway, but now they are clearly demonstrating it.
The reduction of a terrestrial temperature during the next 30 years can have important implications for different parts of the planet on growing vegetation, agriculture, food supplies, and heating needs in both Northern and Southern hemispheres. This global cooling during the upcoming grand solar minimum 1 (2020–2053) can offset for three decades any signs of global warming and would require inter-government efforts to tackle problems with heat and food supplies for the whole population of the Earth.
One thing that is wrong with the pictures is that the last data points is from 2012. More data is always better to determine trends.
One site I like looking at is from Australia.
This is also very good.
And even more stuff:
Seems there is a Big Warming group as well.
How the climate discussion is perverted.
Late to the party and just a simple thought. If all climate debates are based on observation and scientific analysis (ridiculous assumption) - how does one go thousands of years back in time and apply current scientific facts and theories to something that was not observed with the necessary tools and knowledge? Case in point, a simple, accurate thermometer being used in multiple world locations over thousands of years of historically proven human existence. Even the predecessor to the thermometer was not invented until the late 1500's.
We are making fools out of selves.
