the problem is that the politicals want us to infuse politics into everything....


even here.

Everybody should know that science tells us that plants need CO2 to live.  But we should be able to rely on scientists to tell when and if there is too much CO2 for the atmosphere to safely handle without bad climate change, not politicians or conspiracy theory nuts who are far from being trained as climate scientists.

I guess we didn't get the message down here in the SW. Here it is the middle of May, and I have yet to crank up the a/c, and see nothing in the near future that would change that. I've lived here 35 years and can safely say that has never happened before. Not even close. Just sayin'....
So, weather is LOCAL. Next spring may be entirely HOT.

So, it would be a mistake to blame my property insurance being cancelled for renewal on manmade climate change.  Instead, blame it on the local weather in Oklahoma getting worse and more destructive.  Oklahoma is now the third most expensive state for property insurance.  So, it doesn't matter much at least in my neck of the woods whether you believe manmade climate change is a fraud or is for real.  What the weather has been doing is still going to cost you. I expect to find a new insurance company, but don't expect the policy to be any cheaper.

Wow. If you've had insurance canceled over stated "man-made climate change", and you roll over and take it, you get what you deserve.

Interesting in all the back-and-forth discussion here no one mentioned the connection between CO2 spikes and El Nino events the original article even mentioned it. Nature is at work the climate is always changing it is part of the natural cycle man's impact on this is speculative at best. The record period in the article only goes back to 1968 a relative short sampling period.

Another factor not mentioned is the eruption of Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai in December 2022 that produced a volcanic plume 58 km high, and produced the biggest atmospheric explosion ever recorded. At least six people lost their lives in the ensuing tsunami. The two small islands are all that is left visible of a huge underwater volcano. What impact on CO2 levels did this event add to the atmosphere? Nature is constantly changing, and the El Nino event and the Volcanic eruption are major contributors to the current ongoing events. We still have a strong active southern jet stream which is bringing stronger storms further south across the country. This is leading to larger Tornadic Outbreaks as cold air encounters the Warm Moist Gulf Air racing north out of the Gulf of Mexico. We are also having a mild spring in the Southwest which is common during El Nino events.

Not to mention the boreal fires in North America and Eurasia in 2021 produced at least 3x the amount of ALL total man-made C02 emissions...

So we're going to cut off our nose to spite our faces? Here in the US , we are already bending backwards to cut carbon emissions at the expense of our national budget and jobs just to appease a very limited group of screamers. You don't hear them protesting in China and India with all the emissions they put out.. Why? because they just don't care what the rest of the world says or thinks..

Yeah? Well guess what? You're in the minority, and rightfully so. Preach on.
A minority of what? Posters here, perhaps. In reality, it’s the rejectionists who are small in number and rightfully so. They’re just wrong.
That's fine. Come November you lunies will be out of a job. Go find some traffic to block and get run over in, or go deface the Declaration of Independence. I hear the Mona Lisa is waiting as well.
Thanks for proving you’re not interested in reasonable discussion. If only the planet cared about partisan politics.

Who knew your locale is representative of climate everywhere. Amazing.
Lame. I stated a fact. If that bothers you, too bad.
An unproven fact that’s extremely place and time specific. Lame.
LOL! Did you ACTUALLY just say that?! Gimme a frikken break. All you people do is spread fearmongering over BS science that's been happening for countless millenniums. And that's exactly what it is. Go put some sun blocking umbrellas up and make sure you check your stock portfolio. Unbelievable...
Unbelievable that rejection of human-caused climate change is still a thing in 2024.

Is it? Just remember when the CO2 thing failed when they first invented Global Warming, they then had to find a new name and now some are trying to pin the so called heating of the ocean on human emissions of CO2 and that one is also entirely contrived
What CO2 “thing” “failed”? What data do you have that shows the oceans aren’t gaining heat?

Mate if you don't understand CO2 has absolutely nothing to do with ocean temperatures and in fact what does affect ocean temperatures then you have been definatley blindsided
Can you explain more? What’s causing the heat content of the oceans to increase (as has been observed via the Argo floats)?

Insurers (and reinsurers) are very concerned about climate change. Why are they?

BS. That's only if unreasonable people are partaking. There is nothing reasonable about your party. Nothing. My way or the highway.

That escalated quickly.
Why is the chemical composition of the atmosphere a partisan issue?

What about climate change puts insurers’ money at risk?

Your questions are irrelevant to me, and frankly, I don't care. Go look yourself. I'm done with you.

Insurers and reinsurers consider climate change a serious risk. What do you know that they don’t?

It's not that easy.  The insurance company is pulling out of the entire state.  I expect my insurance agent to find me another company.  It has happened before.

It’s unfortunate that discussion of climate-related topics is strongly discouraged here by the injection of irrelevant politics.

Irrelevant politics? Who do you thing politized  climate change/ global warming?   It's just another paradigm to control the masses by a few few... thousands would have their budgets cut if not for this topic...

Again, what makes the chemical composition of the atmosphere a partisan political issue?
