Michael Mann hockey stick graph of global warming; click to see the videoThe so called Medieval Warming Period is an article of faith among deniers.  But what does the "Supreme Court of Science" say?

This video shows the history of the earlier graphs and their "Medieval Warming", and then subsequent graphs based on additional data. See the video

It seems likely there will be some development of renewable energies that will be helpful, and there is already a lot going on to increase conservation. However, it will not be enough nor soon enough, so the rest of the reduction will be forced on the society. And yes, it could get ugly -- but no one can honestly say they know EXACTLY how this will play out.

I seem to have learned to ignore global warming arguments lately. Mostly because it's too late and kind of a moot point: we can't 'fix' a problem so big that it would take 2 planets worth of resources to save the one we have. It's much like the 'energy' plans to use windmills to 'save' our system of systems. Too much effort to argue little details with people who don't care that the overall effort is simply not going to happen or is being spent to save the wrong things. The carbon reduction plans ignore the overall consumption aspect of our behaviors. The Big Wind energy plans ignore the overall waste that electric power grids entail. (Keeping the lights on 24/7 when we only need electricity for a few hours a day....buy batteries and limited local power, not power lines and right of ways).

This series by Peter Sinclair (you can see links to the other posts so far at the bottom) is terrific if you have ever seen or heard an argument you knew was inaccurate but spouted in a facile way, and you did not have the facts to refute it. This happens frequently on the Internet. Peter has done the work to bring together the facts related to each of these denier myths, and is now implementing that research as a video series.
