Karen, first off: STOP! You [climate change] deniers ALWAYS try to divert the subject into arguments which ignore actual observable changes that are taking place (because they are the most damning against your belief system) in favor of obfuscation over data sets of temperatures gathered, computer models, etc.
Then, you posit a hackneyed old Right-wing conspiracy theory along the lines of the John Burch Society about global control of people (as if Conservatives also aren't interested in control via oil companies, etc). You do this while ignoring mountains of observations to go along with the reams of data you can't effectively refute, try as you may.
Your assertion that there is "no unusual pattern of warming" is contradicted by the facts! Those of us who are life-long weather watchers and atmospheric science geeks know this from personal observation.
You mention a short-term and lesser warming in the 1860's as a red-herring because it is not the same order of magnitude AND you make the error of suggesting that internal combustion engines are synonymous with industrialization. There was plenty of industrialization before there were cars and there were internal combustion engines before there were cars and as far back as the 1860s.
The charge that there is a financial incentive to publish research that supports Climate Change ignores the fact there is more money to be made publishing the opposite as the Fossil Fuel Industry will pay any hack his price to publish in support of them. Their problem is there are not enough unethical scientists out there willing to sell their souls to Big Oil & Co. It's not about people not wanting to be bad guys and not speak the truth. It's about truth being rejected out of hand by people like you in favor of a culturally and politically-derived view.
irony is that the Climate Change denier crowd are the ones praising the
emperor for his clothes that are not. Clearly you are unaware of all
the changes taking place all around the world all the time that all
reflect one single climatic trend and this
has all happened relatively quickly.
Just one example is how fast the
Arctic and adjacent regions have changed. The militaries of many nations
ringing it have had to adjust to knew and warmer climate regimes. This
is why the U.S. military is one of the most climate change-engaged
branches of the government. They have to operate in various capacities
in zones where things are changing and they see it. It's not a matter of
politics but of acknowledging reality.
The nations bordering the Arctic
have already had to conduct negotiations regarding access and
navigation routes so as to avoid conflict. Russia is aggressively
seeking to develop oil fields on their north that were previously
inaccessible due to the old climate.
Epic boreal forest fires in Asia
and North America are the summer norm now as are thunderstorms much
further north much more commonly in summer. Snow-free sections of the
Iditorad Race are more common in more recent decades.
permafrost is something that is now having to be dealt with by
stakeholders in northern latitudes such as oil companies, highway
Growing season lengthening, glacial retreat, thermal
expansion of the oceans causing rising sea levels, more ice-free ocean
leading to more coastal erosion affected Native American coastal
communities, etc. etc. ad infinitum ad nauseum.
You seem ignorant of
much reality in favor of a sheltered little worldview driven by petty
domestic politics and the Culture War which is used to great effect to
distract people on both the Right and the Left. Keep on drinking your
