    Temps in smaller cities outside of Dallas, Houston, etc (thus less affected by surface changes) have not changed in 100 years. The warmists say warming has been observed elsewhere. Also I will try to post a graph showing less loss due to weather events today than in the past normalized to GDP.

    You bring up a good point. Obviously the climate of Texas was pretty unlivable in 1899. It was hot as hell much like it is now. However, technology adapted with things like air conditioning just as it has adapted with other things. Now tens of millions of people including the elderly and small children can safely live in Texas because of that technology.

    The doomsday scenarios we hear so much about presume no adaptation. We'll never figure out a way to adapt to higher temperatures. Coastal cities will flood under rising tides, and the people in those cities will just sit on their asses and drown. Well, those kinds of assumptions simply aren't consistent with human history.

    Yes Deez. When you give humans resources they innovate and adapt. Do more of that. Increase the resources of your people so that on average people have more options.

    The minute you start using the government to take away money and resources in order to prevent change (even assuming the change is really bad), then you doom your society to real problems in the short term.

    Yes, it has melted but unfortunately it froze over again this winter. Check back this same time next year for an update.

    It will be the same 12 years from now, but by then the global population (ex Africa ) will have peaked.

    Yeah, the thing we said would happen isn't, BUT that just means something worse will happen or it means the thing is happening that we are claiming even though it isn't.

    Everybody dies. But by burning fossil fuels for energy we die much later in life than before.
