Hot Air From Deniers Triggers Feedback Loop

You’d have be living in a cave with Utah Senator Steve (Sunspots) Urquhart to deny the evidence.

Climate change models aren’t even needed anymore. They were all wrong by orders of magnitude anyway.

But Steve Urquhart, that last of the opportunistic ‘deniers’, was the worse kind of wrong because he was morally wrong. Let us not forget Urquhart and other politicians who got elected by promoting the ultimate lie.

Scientists: Pace of Climate Change Exceeds Estimates
h/t Cav

Unexpectedly large amounts of carbon dioxide are being released into the atmosphere as the result of “feedback loops” that are speeding up natural processes. Prominent among these, evidence indicates, is a cycle in which higher temperatures are beginning to melt the arctic permafrost, which could release hundreds of billions of tons of carbon and methane into the atmosphere, said several scientists on a panel at the meeting.

The permafrost holds 1 trillion tons of carbon, and as much as 10 percent of that could be released this century, Field said. Melting permafrost also releases methane, which is 25 times more potent a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.

Steve Urquhart ACTUALLY said, “Yet, some people want to say that their favored theory is FACT and that we should reorder society to accommodate it?!  We are an interesting breed.”

Thats code to St. George folks, “Don’t worry. I’m not going to ask you to go easy on the A/C.  Crank it up!”
