Thanks Don. Interesting. Especially the one climate sceptic. He isn’t listening to evidence. It seems to be a common trait to climate deniers.

The Antarctic Peninsula recorded a high of 65 degrees this week, the hottest temperature ever recorded there. The reading was taken Thursday at Esperanza Base along Antarctica's Trinity Peninsula. That temperature is hotter than the previous record of 63.5 degrees from March 2015.

Won't it be fun when that gigantic ice shelf drops off the continent? But there's no climate change in progress, I say with much sarcasm.

The so called climate always changes. Can't stop it.

^^^^^ Weather is not the same as climate. (You know that.)

Can't stop it? But can really speed it up....

NOAA said in its announcement: Atmospheric carbon dioxide continued its rapid rise in 2019, with the average for May peaking at 414.7 parts per million (ppm).

Better than most. Climate only exists on paper, not in the natural world...You know that, I hope.

with the average for May peaking at 414.7 ppm.

Not interested. Been down that road too many times. We went over the 400ppm tipping point so it's all over now. You've made that perfectly clear. Nothing can stop it and we will become Venusized. The runaway greenhouse effect has kicked in and we're all doomed.

The last time the planet heated up like this was 54 million years ago. Only then it took thousands of years for that period of hothouse conditions to fully manifest, not nearly as quickly as it is happening now.

The soot from the fires in Australia is going to cause a huge melt in the Antarctic. Just something to expect. Not at all related to the weather.

Nyuk, trying to convince you about MMCC is like trying to convince you that trump is more corrupt than Hillary. Both debates were over and settled some time ago.

We can agree on that.

Great! Glad you're coming over. The water is fine, it's a bit on the warm side and getting more acidic, but what the hey?

Is anyone familiar with how geomagnetic excursions affect climate change? My understanding is, it makes it a lot harder for the snake-oil salesmen to bilk the general population.

We can't predict the integrity of the magnetic field during the process. If it weakens, the planet will heat up, and it has been weakening. The idea that CO2 controls the weather is simply laughable.
