    To begin this thread with the news of the 2nd hottest year on record 2019, and last decade the warmest on record.

    Global warming is in full bore.2019 is the second warmest in recorded history, and the decade is the warmest in recorded history.

    Earth had its second warmest year on record in 2019, just 0.04°C behind 2016, said NOAA and NASA on January 15. Global ocean temperatures and global land temperatures were both the second warmest on record. Global satellite-measured temperatures in 2019 for the lowest 8 km of the atmosphere were the third warmest or second warmest in the 42-year record, according to the University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH) and RSS, respectively.

    By continent, here are the 2019 temperature rankings:

    Australia (and Oceania): warmest year on record
    Europe: 2nd warmest
    South America: 2nd warmest
    Asia: 3rd warmest
    Africa: 3rd warmest
    North America: 14th warmest

    From: Scientists alarmed to discover warm water at "vital point" beneath Antarctica's "doomsday glacier"

    Scientists alarmed to discover warm water at "vital point" beneath Antarctica's "doomsday glacier"

    "Warm waters in this part of the world, as remote as they may seem, should serve as a warning to all of us about the potential dire changes to the planet brought about by climate change," he said.

    The collapse of the 74,000-square-mile Thwaites — which some scientists see as the most vulnerable and significant glacier in the world when it comes to sea-level-rise — could release a mass of water roughly the size of Florida or Great Britain. Its melting would raise global sea levels by more than three feet, enough to potentially overwhelm vulnerable populations, the researchers said.

    The team that found the warm water created a nearly 2,000-foot deep access hold to conduct unprecedented research, part of a multimillion-dollar initiative between the United States and the United Kingdom. Using an ocean-sensing device, scientists recorded waters more than two degrees above freezing flowing beneath the hard-to-reach glacier in early January.

    "From our observations into the ocean cavity at the grounding zone we observed not only the presence of warm water, but also its turbulence level and thus its efficiency to melt the ice shelf base," said Aurora Basinski, an NYU graduate student who made the turbulence measurement.

    According to the International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration, the amount of ice flowing out of the Thwaites and nearby glaciers has nearly doubled over the last 30 years. Melting ice from the Thwaites into the Amundsen Sea already accounts for approximately 4% of current global sea-level rise — a number that would significantly increase when the glacier crumbles.

    Chicago Pile-1 (CP-1) was the world's first nuclear reactor. CP-1 was built on a rackets court, under the abandoned west stands of the original Alonzo Stagg Field stadium, at the University of Chicago. The first self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction was initiated in CP-1 on December 2, 1942. It operated until February 1943, when it was dismantled, moved to another location and rebuilt as Chicago Pile 2.

    The Black Hills Remarkable Temperature Change of January 22, 1943

    The religious science occult stories of our technological past warned males that nuclear UFO cult science was the destruction of natuarl life on Earth, as a truthful, factual, self aware, astute and real male informed living conditions of the past.

    And they compiled the book of evidence and titled it Old Testimonials and New Testimonials of scientific evidence and the effects on the bio Nature.

    If anyone cared to reason why that literature was true to its teaching.

    Maybe if you stopped nuclear fuel reactors, then Earth might just snap freeze that ICE again.

    Pure Newtonian physics and the amount of energy involved. Nuclear reactors have anything to do with Global Warming.

    Some of the consequences of Global Warming. https://phys.org/news/2020-02-arctic-ice-ocean-currents.html

    Arctic ice melt is changing ocean currents
    by Rexana Vizza / Matthew Segal, NASA

    [​IMG]
    Arctic sea ice was photographed in 2011 during NASA's ICESCAPE mission, or "Im

    A major ocean current in the Arctic is faster and more turbulent as a result of rapid sea ice melt, a new study from NASA shows. The current is part of a delicate Arctic environment that is now flooded with fresh water, an effect of human-caused climate change.Using 12 years of satellite data, scientists have measured how this circular current, called the Beaufort Gyre, has precariously balanced an influx of unprecedented amounts of cold, fresh water—a change that could alter the currents in the Atlantic Ocean and cool the climate of Western Europe.

    The Beaufort Gyre keeps the polar environment in equilibrium by storing fresh water near the surface of the ocean. Wind blows the gyre in a clockwise direction around the western Arctic Ocean, north of Canada and Alaska, where it naturally collects fresh water from glacial melt, river runoff and precipitation. This fresh water is important in the Arctic in part because it floats above the warmer, salty water and helps to protect the sea ice from melting, which in turn helps regulate Earth's climate. The gyre then slowly releases this fresh water into the Atlantic Ocean over a period of decades, allowing the Atlantic Ocean currents to carry it away in small amounts.

    But since the 1990s, the gyre has accumulated a large amount of fresh water—1,920 cubic miles (8,000 cubic kilometers) - or almost twice the volume of Lake Michigan. The new study, published in Nature Communications, found that the cause of this gain in freshwater concentration is the loss of sea ice in summer and autumn. This decades-long decline of the Arctic's summertime sea ice cover has left the Beaufort Gyre more exposed to the wind, which spins the gyre faster and traps the fresh water in its current.

    Persistent westerly winds have also dragged the current in one direction for over 20 years, increasing the speed and size of the clockwise current and preventing the fresh water from leaving the Arctic Ocean. This decades-long western wind is unusual for the region, where previously, the winds changed direction every five to seven years.

    Scientists have been keeping an eye on the Beaufort Gyre in case the wind changes direction again. If the direction were to change, the wind would reverse the current, pulling it counterclockwise and releasing the water it has accumulated all at once."

    Earth is not males science.

    Earth is a naturally evolved body that exists in its owned cosmological evolution.

    Science owns a reaction that says beginning and end...to have a reaction.

    Stone says never began creation itself...and owned no end, for stone is just stone, how the law of physics was taught.

    Science as a human owned applied thinking ability only exists on stone...so they never owned any Universal beginning.

    The gases, the heavens came out of its owned Creator the body of stone by law of mountain volcano.

    How the physics was taught.

    To be enabled to de fuse and cause fission, hot radiation has to first come to Earth to apply the mass of radio wave/radiation reactor signals to allow fission to occur. Science changed the Earth natural bio life supporting atmosphere...which science knows that science did. For science confessed that life on Earth was given early age death by nuclear science causes...and then agreed to increase it seeing they have no love of spirit or life on Earth their own selves.

    It is all about ego and male imposed human lying conditions.

    About being the God self in the past as a human who invented science, was living alone on Earth as the science story says in the atmospheric natural status with the Nature Garden. So a long time ago, God and his machine partner did conversion. As a male status...seeing he tells the story and says God is a male.

    Extra radiation is how a conscious male describes what came to Earth for his science status...and he says that he is copying the Sun. In the cosmos the Sun attack on Earth in natural history had been stopped. So he lied, he was never copying the Sun, he chose to do an evil act against natural life on Earth.

    Just as the story says.....Satanism...to burn unnaturally the living body to force the body of fusion to change.

    For in Nature the body of fusion does not change by itself...or else everyday you would see holes opening up all over planet Earth if it naturally owned in its natural state, fission.

    Because you build a machine and operate a machine, males in science displace ownership and their human guilt to the machine condition....claiming the machine is causing it, as he operates it. The same story is a male claiming and God destroyed my life...when science activated that destruction.

    What egotists achieve. For no entity told you male human beings to do science, to think for science.

    And the Universe owned a reaction beginning and end....to react. A male looks at the creation and then tries to claim, the beginning, then reaction is everything.

    Yet the beginning and end reaction is a reaction itself. What occurs afterwards is natural.

    So if a male never owned a reaction, then he would not believe he owns everything, as the statement the end of the reaction....yet he does.

    The inanity of males....nuclear fusion and Earth history is natural and it is a natural body. It owned no beginning and it owned no end...for it just existed as a natural body. You live on the Planet acting as its Destroyer and lie about what you achieve.

    The wanton destruction of Creation for greed and profit is beyond tragic and is, I think, in large part a consequence of the materialism/atheism that is poisoning the minds of so many people today.

    A male in his origin nature, a baby innocent who grows into adult thought about concepts.

    Agrees with male ideals as a group. Called a cult mentality factually.

    Thinks in his natural awareness about natural. Natural is not owner of ground fission...a reactor and reaction is not occurring.

    He is thinking natural and natural conditions, that supports his bio existence when he claims laws.

    So he says natural laws owns his life support, as correct human reasoning.

    There is no science law, never was.

    When a male whose intention is to reason what he claims is mind design to think and reason information you have to ask the self first, and where does this design and thinking come from.

    The answer is UFO metal radiation mass, not of the Earth and cloud cooling causation. Why he can see UFO images in the clouds, likened to atomic orbitals.

    So it owns no physicality.

    Stone is the actual Earth God entity body of fusion. It is not the UFO nor the cloud cooling condition, and the LAWS in the Bible written to confer that males broke the law of natural stone FUSION in the past, as a removal of SIN...into K, by science symbolism the constant.

    In the ancient past the symbol letter K meant constant.

    So they claimed this act HOLY on behalf of a God who says and I virtually hate you Nature Garden, animals and human female life. As a conscious subliminal male scientific Satanic advice in male consciousness.

    What was always known by medical Christ scientists in the ancient past....a form of male madness that is related to destructive scientific quanta that claims that a male as a human invented the LAWS in the natural cosmology, when it is naturally formed and naturally present, without any of his owned advices.

    So when you involve terms of LAWS without a reactor and then react, not only did you change natural law, you also attacked natural life.

    Materialism I will agree is a major factor in the destruction of the environment and Global Warming, but atheism is a stretch and a scapegoat. The world today is overwhelmingly dominated by believers in the different religions that believe in some source, they call God or Gods by various names.

    Climate change: the more things change, the more they stay the same. The climate on the earth has always changed.

    There have been five ice ages in the past. In between the ice ages there were warming periods called interglacials. Other than the last ice age and current warming period, all of the ice ages and interglacials happened BEFORE humans had evolved. So, there is a natural cause to the cooling and warming of the planet and we don't know what that cause is. The last ice age ended 10,000 years ago and we have been warming since then. Internal combustion engines are only about 100 years old so humans did not cause this warming trend.

    I am not saying that humans are not affecting the warming period we are in. We are, but scientists don't know how much of the current warming trend is caused by this unknown natural effect and how much is caused by human activity.

    That's not the real issue.

    Actually they do know, but it took a while to get there. It's largely higher rates of CO2 and methane gas, plus having much less vegetation to absorb the CO2 than in the distant past. All other potential factors have been checked and discounted.

    The fact that the climate changes naturally is the issue.

    Actually they do not know. Your assumption that higher rates of CO2 and methane gas and less vegetation do not make sense. How would this cause an ice age, and then a warming period, and then an ice age, and then another warming period over and over and over again?

    False, as I go with the science, not the political expediency, and I have studied this and followed the research on this for decades now.

    Here (even though it's obviously not a scientific site, it has many links): Global warming - Wikipedia

    The Ice ages are science, discarded science but still science. Global warming is "Everybody jump on the popular bandwagon so we can all get on talk shows," science.

    I didn't suggest that the planet was not warming. I actually said that it was. You're trying to make this into a "Yes it is," vs "No it's not," argument and avoiding the facts.

    There have been five major naturally caused ice ages and five naturally caused warming periods. Your link on global warming doesn't explain the ice ages.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interglacial

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_age

    Also, this idea that increasing CO2 levels is behind global warming is not entirely correct. CO2 doesn't know which way is down so it reflects incoming heat from the sun as well as heat that has bounced off the planet. So you lose some heat and you gain some heat.
