Idle PCs Waste Electricity - Page 4

PLEASE. THERE IS NO GLOBAL WARMING!
it does NOT exsist. watch the great global warming swindle on google and youll see why
from a sientific poing of view,CO2 is not a greenhouse gas!it doesnt CAUSE ANYTHING.
this is pure BS,but saving electricity is a good idea,on the other hand you should understand that this reserach would not make it anywhere unless it had something to do with CO2 imissions........ total and complete BS thank you come again later my friend

I like the change in title. Although, idle of anything wastes energy...and if you are folding, thats not exactly wasted energy.

I will not stop FOLDING 4 office computers For A Cure!

Why do people attempt to use one or two pieces of "science" to back their claims... when the vast majority of the scientific community believes it exists.

Do you get your "research" from a short video on google? Or would you rather read a peer-reviewed report with 20 years in the making?

Quote:
IPCC reports are widely cited in almost any debate related to climate change. National and international responses to climate change generally regard the UN climate panel as authoritative.

All IPCC technical reports face extensive scientific review.

Global Warming won't matter for much longer... soon (within a few decades or centuries probably) we will either see a major climate shift or the poles will shift on us...

I've heard arguments for there not being global warming and I've heard arguments that there is global warming. I believe in global warming, but I will not argue it. People will believe what they want to, and you will always be able to find a scientist who's findings support your theory...

My wife and I rented Al Gore's: An Inconvenient Truth and it has some potential bs, but alot of it makes sense.

If you don't want to believe in global warming, no problems. Someone at sometime will have to face it, or the world climate will shift again and the earth will repair itself (even if that means wiping out huge numbers of humanity in another ice age).

Anyhow... just my ramblings on the subject. And as far as folding wasting electricity, nope... when a pc is folding, its doing something with a purpose, so its not a waste... now, just leaving it on with nothing else happening, thats a waste... Idle CPU Cycles are the devils play things...

had a quick read through that pdf and it's got some hardcore info but from what i read it it mostly covers modern times and predictons based on todays figures, whereas the documentry looks back in time and says that the earth has been hotter than it is now before there was any industry or human pollution so i can't be our fault.

i was months ago i watched it so remembering specific details is hard. it was very intersting though i reaaly recommend watching it

oh and duckie its not a short video it a full documentry. you should just watch it even if it makes your opinion stronger

The report takes historic and pre-historic data into account:
* The amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in 2005 (379 ppm) exceeds by far the natural range of the last 650,000 years (180 to 300 ppm).
* The amount of methane in the atmosphere in 2005 (1774 ppb) exceeds by far the natural range of the last 650,000 years (320 to 790 ppb).
* Average Northern Hemisphere temperatures during the second half of the 20th century were very likely higher than during any other 50-year period in the last 500 years and likely the highest in at least the past 1300 years
* The probability that this is caused by natural climatic processes alone is less than 5%.

Also, the issue is of the rapid change in global temperature. Yes, the Earth has been hotter but how long did these temperature flucations take? The issue with global warming is that we might be seeing 1-6C temperature change in less than 100 years. Before anyone says that isn't much... that's 9F and would mean the difference of million/billions of tons of ice melting.


My question with the documentary... how much research was done and how was it peer reviewed? Peer review is the keystone to science. Here is how the ipcc report is validated: "The report was produced by around 600 authors from 40 countries, and reviewed by over 620 experts and governments. Before being accepted, the summary was reviewed line-by-line by representatives from 113 governments."
