Rising sea levels, which I can literally go out and measure myself, and reductions in glaciers/sea ice, proves the existance of global warming. There is no way for any rational mind to deny that the average temperature of the earth is creeping up.

Are humans responsible for it? I don't really know what sort of impact we have.

The earth does have it's warm and cold spells. There were times, long before humans, when the temperaure of earth at the poles almost never dropped below freezing. Conversely, there have been times where most of the planet was covered with ice. We are still in the process of leaving an ice age, so most global warming could very well be natural.

On the other hand, we do pump out enormous levels of greenhouse gasses, and have been doing so for a very long time. To deny that billions to trillions of tons of CO2 accumulation could possibly have an impact is foolish.

Regardless, global warming is not the end of the world. In fact, the net effect may wind up being benefical. A warmer climate and more CO2 in the air is very good for plants and agriculture. Thining ice at the north pole may open up faster, more efficent shipping routes. I'm sure their are other pros.

Sure, some people will be displaced and loose their homes or beaches due to rising sea levels. Some species of plants and animals will become extinict. The gulf stream that keeps the British Isles from being as cold as New England or northern scandinavia may be cut off. Some deserts will expand and new ones will form.

In the end, it's going to simply be more different than good or bad. One thing is fairly certain though: we are not going to become the next Venus, nor will we go extinct because of global warming.


Anyway, this super computer mentioned in the OP is not focusing primarily on global warming. It's climate change and weather as a whole.

Theres this wonderfull power called coldfusion that was wrongly completely dismissed in favour of the fossil fuels "all money orinentated" it emits no emissions and causes a very powerfull reaction that has a energy output the same "or near enough" as a nukular reaction yet produces no radiation, theres a pretty interesting documentory on it called Heavy Watergate - The War Against Cold Fusion

He uses real science and data that directly contends with, and debunks, many of Al Gore's claims.

With all due respect to Al Gore; he is not a meteorologist, climatologist, geologist, or anything close to such. He has a degree in Government. Now, I'm not saying that itself makes his argument invalid. But my point is; I'm much, much more inclined to place belief in the person with a formal education and training (and 50+ years of experience) in the field.... especially when the two gentleman's assertions directly conflict.

Coleman's take on Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth":



At one point, he actually wanted to sue Al Gore for fraud for imposing the "fact" that "global warming" is a direct result of human action. (Source) There are some more links that site, as well.

Coleman speaks of "global warming" at the 2008 International Conference of Climate Change and The Free Republic:


So if anyone wants to believe Al Gore on the subject, fine, it's your right. But it's my understanding, judging by the information at hand, that doing so seems to be woefully misguided.
John Coleman is an idiot, but your seeming thesis that Al Gore is the only proponent of global warming is worse. Sadly though, that notion is understandable, seeing as how no one can seemingly construct a good argument for global warming here.

First lets tackle Coleman. Here he is in this 2008 article, talking about his idea of suing that you mentioned:
Quote:
I thought perhaps if we had a legal challenge and went into a court of law, where it was our scientists and their scientists, and all the legal proceedings with the discovery and all their documents from both sides and scientific testimony from both sides, we could finally get a good solid debate on the issue,"
How the hell can you claim to be a scientist and WANT TO SETTLE A SCIENTIFIC DEBATE IN THE LEGAL SYSTEM. No self respecting scientist should ever want to settle a scientific debate in anything other than the scientific community. And I read his rhetoric filled "paper" and it very clearly shows that he has a small understanding of what is going on, most of his claims are laughable. If you really want, point out things of his paper you thing are correct and I'll shoot them down one by one.

Now heres a thing people have forgotten to do in arguments such as these: provide serious evidence. (warning: picture spam)
GISS temperature analysis:


HadCRUT temperature data:


Clearly these show a significant warming trend during the later half of the century. What about effects from the sun?

Solar Irradiance from 1980 onward.



As you can see, the sun has been oscillating fairly uniformly, but temperature is on a steady increase. You can even spot the effects from the sun in the temp graphs, look for little dips in the temperature and compare them to the minimum points on the Solar Irradiance graph.

How about El Nino/ La Nina southern oscillation phenomenon:



As you can see, in 1998 we had a massive El Nino event, the so called "El Nino of the century," and now we seem to be in a strong La Nina period.

You know whats funny? Despite the Solar Irradiance being at a minimum, and despite a strong La Nina that year, 2007 was the second warmest year measured in the period of instrumental data.

Wonder why?
Here is a compilation of forcings on the climate (what influences the temperature):

(just to clarify, Stratospheric Aerosols are what come from volcanoes, thats why its line is really spiky)

Now none of these sources are from Al Gore, They are all from PHD' professionals, or taken DIRECTLY from the collected world data.

yup differnce with cold fusion is though it dont emit radiation and is at room temprature so in theory is wouldnt be hard to use it as a everyday fuel around the home and for cars ect without needing a big ass reactor and the worry of getting radiation poisoning if theres a leak

Something to chew on...

"On April 24 the World Wildife Fund (WWF), another body keen to keep the warmist flag flying, published a study warning that Arctic sea ice was melting so fast that it may soon reach a “tipping point” where “irreversible change” takes place. This was based on last September’s data, showing ice cover having shrunk over six months from 13 million square kilometres to just 3 million.

What the WWF omitted to mention was that by March the ice had recovered to 14 million sq km (see the website Cryosphere Today), and that ice-cover around the Bering Strait and Alaska that month was at its highest level ever recorded. (At the same time Antarctic sea ice-cover was also at its highest-ever level, 30 per cent above normal)."

Now why do you suppose things like this don't get mentioned by AL Gore and the mainstream media...

Bartender Paradox, don't forget to mention there was a small ice age in the 1800s. That's why those temps were lower than average. I'm not picking a fight though, I know the globe is warming up overall. What the jury is still out on is whether it's due MAINLY because of humans or if it is a natural cycle.
