Models of Climate Change and weather forcasts are equally wrong, most often.

Climate change is a religion, as we will not be alive to see the truth of the predictions.
Weather forecasts are often wrong, and the science of the immediate future of a local climate should be more easily predictable.
Climate change will happen, the direction, warming or cooling, is unpredictable.
The true path of a storm is unpredictable.

Diblasio is a fear monger along the lines of his political god, Gore.

The first round is for your retort.


Enviomentalism is a religion not climate change. We do not have to live eternally to see the effects of global warming. Of course we can not predict the outcome of the global warming other than we know it has happened frequently in the past. The climate has a cycle where ice age is the last stage (or the first depending on how you put it). Global warming follows the average temperature of the earth. This does not mean that all over the world it will get hotter. Global warming does not only result in warmer temperatures, but also in more violent storms, more violent earthquakes etc. We can prove climate change by just looking at pictures of glaciers now and 50 years ago (
Debate Round No. 1


In ancient times, like when subways were invented, the idea was to allow freedom of movement even when there was a big snowstorm.

Why did the subways get closed, and the streets and sidewalks have marshal law imposed for a small snow storm?

Keep trusting the climatologists, as they are much smarter then the meteorologists that fail regularly with no repercussions.

The ability to predict the weather beyond 12 hours only depends on the size of the storm.


Fredemanze forfeited this round.
Debate Round No. 2


What? I can't hear you.


What does subways have to do with climate change? Even though the idea of subways was to allow freedom of movement at all times, it is still a idea or vision for the subway and that does not mean it works in practice.

Putting the subways aside; no it is not always that the weather forecasts are exact, but they are very often right. When we see a weather forecast, you are right that they are not 100% right, but there is a good reason for that. When you have to forecast the weather, you look at the different pressures in the different areas and thereby predicting e.g. a storms movement a behaviour. So when you see a weather forecast, it is 100% right if nothing in the pressure changed since it was made.

Climate change and weather forecast are scientifically proved. Since we can measure the amount of carbon-dioxide in the atmosphere which is 0.06%, while it was 0.05% 50 years ago. That's an increase on 20% which is obvious with the boom in the oil industry.

Yes you are right, i am sorry.

Still the essentials in what i have written with the increasing amount of carbondioxide in the atmosphere are still true (

The opponent stated CO2 was .05-.06%. This is a blatant lie and an exaggeration by more then 50%, which is typical of climatology. The percentage is .04%, at 400ppm, and the CO2 level is less then 385ppm.

I am pretty sure they were closed for blizzard mania a couple days ago.

The subways were closed? I'm pretty sure they're running just fine.

(Did you forget that most people on the internet don't live in your city?)

What exactly are you trying to communicate with your resolution? Can you reword it?
