Um...I believe you mean "climate change". The argument falls apart otherwise.

Global Warming, Global Cooling, Climate Change, let's not get wrapped up in symantics.  How else can we get Cap & Trade Tax passed?

I thought the scientific term was anthropogenic global warming or AGW.  Meaning that the earth is warming due to man-made causes.

They need a Sarcasm emoticon ...

 
I think the climate change debate is sort of like watching CNBC during the day where they are trying to frame the narrative of a market cycle within a singe day's stock market performance. Sometimes there just happen to be anomolies that have no bearing on the overall cyclical nature of whatever you are talking about.
 
Since we seem to talk about weather constantly, anytime there is an anomoly everyone freaks out. I am not saying that there isn't "anthropogenic global warming" (which is a cool thing to say), but I am saying that I wish that we would quit talking about it everytime there is deviation from the statistical weather norm.

"The market was up today over concerns about AT&T's bandwidth problems, which was offset by an increase in home refinancings, which was buoyed by the residential real estate report, amidst concerns about unemployement.  In the afternoon, the market "tumbled" 50 points over comments about the war in Iraq, and the announced recall of recycled coffee cups being used by a local coffee shop in Toledo.  This was in stark contrast to the heavy positive S&P futures that prompted the morning selloff over heavy oil consumption due to ice cold weather "gripping" much of the U.S. and "blanketing" the northern states with snow.  It remains to be seen what will happen as investors anxiously await the pending report by the Fed.  Industry insiders report that "talks" have broken down between Fed bankers who are in disagreement over short-term rates.  This has sent "shockwaves" through the market as the "broader" indexes "freefall" over the uncertainty."
 
And the market finishes the day up 32.4 points.
 
Now wonder people panick.

Anthropogenics - sounds like a place to make money.


Of course the world is changing fast. If you're over fifty, there are twice as many humans eating and excreting than when you were born.


Twice as many people. A case for most of us being organic farmers and surfing the web, it ever there was one. Throw in government corruption, taxes and terrorism, and you're "there".


Like Nick Murry used to say, owners (stocks)  will ultimately make twice as much money as lenders(cash and bonds), even if the sky falls. Which it did twice in the last decade.


If your holding period is forever (Warren Buffet), it just becomes a matter of quality of life. I don't see how six billion people cannot change the "climate". Like you imply, so  now what? Are we supposed to trust a bunch of cartoon characters (like the old James Bond movies) to impart their wisdom on our behalf, with our capital?
 
Fascinating time, as the corruption of the New Left is exposed. Obama is a fake. But who is even talking about what comes next?
