Cuts to Climate Monitoring
« on: September 16, 2017, 10:15:43 AM »
Interesting that Trump and Trudeau are united in one thing:

http://www.nationalobserver.com/2017/09/15/news/scientists-criticize-trudeau-government-explores-ozone-funding-options

Its a strange thing to me to be living in a society which is debating an issue which will cost hundreds of billions of dollars and yet governments are unwilling to spend less than 1% of potential cost on the observations that would be needed to settle these issues.

I'm sorry Rukawa but the discount rate is simply TOO HIGH to justify spending all that money when so much of the benefit is in the out years of the model. And that's on the off chance that this global warming thing isn't totally made up, so I am being generous in my analysis.

I suggest you take a look at the research this site and check yourself before you wreck yourself financially with these wild ideas.

The whole point is that if it is a hoax the only way you will know is measurements. Measurements are the only thing capable of settling these issues. And spending money on measurements is a small fraction of the amounts that are being spent to fight global warming...even when conservatives are in power.

Yet on one side you have conservatives who in an effort to throttle global warming are cutting funding to NASA projects measuring climate.

And on the other side you have liberals who are so sure they are right that they don't even see the point in researching or studying the issue anymore.

The one common denominator is that both sides care only about politics...the science is irrelevant at this point. Heck it probably always was.

Not to me...the measurements are your most important part. Hell, I would love for human-caused global warming to be nonexistant. Would make life waaaay easier.
