Global warming is nothing but a hoax and a scare tactic

Uhm, might want to check your facts: Al Gore personally has turned "Global Climate Change" (formerly "Global Warming") into a billion dollar windfall for himself. This is not just "big bad" oil companies throwing their weight at the little guy. This is big business on BOTH sides of the argument. And I assure you, I am one of the LAST to defend Big Oil. Everyone has a stake, whether it is oil companies trying to drill for shale oil or the President investing $25 billion into windmills and solar across the nation.

the warming planet will create more water vapor.

so simple

as the discussion was about warming increased water vapor in the air which is a greenhouse gas and is invisible

"So let's assume you are right and warmer air holds more moisture"

warm moist air is the least densest air so it rises. cool dry air is the densest and it tends to sink

there are arid areas at the equator and the poles. Antarctica is the largest desert

I remember having this simple discussion months ago, sorry you forgot all of these basics. No wonder you are a denier

So why did the IPCC also predict more floods?

when was that? was it at the beginning of all the flooding or before?

E. Vader - "Not quite. So with more H20 in the atmosphere, how come the IPCC Priests predict massive drought?"

Drought where, and with what specific wording? "Drought" means "lack of rain", and rain does not require that air can hold more water vapour but that it can hold less than is currently in it.

Why, for instance, was a drought declared this week in South East England? Sounds like a confirmation to me.

"If the 3rd assessment report was junk and not credible, what gives those same quacks the right to be credible in future assessment reports."

It isn't a right, dipstick. Nor does the proper revision of science over time suggest that all the previous science is "junk", in any case a purely political coining.

Michael Prokop - "Uhm, might want to check your facts: Al Gore personally has turned "Global Climate Change" (formerly "Global Warming") into a billion dollar windfall for himself."

So much for "facts". I repeat: So what was it called in 1988 when the IPCC was founded? (Hint: Begins with "CC".)

ANOTHER sad case suckered by Luntz.

A customer says:
E. Vader - "So why did the IPCC predict "unprecedented" drought in a world with more water vapor?"

Why are most EXISTING arid regions found where the air is warmer and can hold more water vapour?

A customer says:
E. Vader - "So why did the IPCC also predict more floods?"

Red herring. Why did YOU not know that a warmer world will have more water vapour and thus an enhanced greenhouse effect, and why do you think that YOUR being ignorant about this in any way translates to the IPCC, whose contributors have known all along? And why do you think that YOUR not knowing this is in any way obfuscated by quibbling about someone else's predictions that you haven't actually shown to be false, or even specified?

We do not have to justify the IPCC, as the subject at issue is feedbacks and YOU are the only party who does not understand them. Changing the subject does not alter that.

We don't have to assume. It does. If you don't even understand that then why are you trying to discuss this subject at all?

You guys are focusing on small facts so much that you lose the big picture...

Yeah, warmer air can hold more moisture... (I can vouch for that: I live two steps away from a %$#"! rainforest)... but eventually all that water must fall SOMEWHERE... It'll usually face a cold front or the rising foothill of a mountain chain that'll help it condense.

Now... all this extra heat will also affect the entire atmosphere convection system, effectively changing the normal weather pattern, including the way air currents move. so you can expect storms happening in places where previously they weren't happening... (floods... if you catch my drift :P )
