Why is the climate change alarmist crowd so noticeably silent?

They can't possibly KNOW that...
Sure they do, these guys are magic! They don't know what the temperature of the earth is today within plus or minus a half degree C, and they have no clear idea exactly what the temps were a hundred years ago. Yet, they're sure that right now the earth is precisely 0.8°C ±0.1°C hotter today than it was exactly 100 years ago.

Let's face it, we got to really hand it to the climate boys, and if they take over we'll have to hand even more of it to 'em.

What’s the problem here? Why don’t we resolve this by having the government do a study of the issue? I presume that if a peer reviewed effort involving a few hundred scientists concluded that there is a danger, the president would take it into account and suggest appropriate policies. It’s not as if he thinks he knows more than everyone else about everything.

Just so you know I stole your line above for a tag line.

Your title wasn't really representative of the article. Here is the actual title:

Breaking News: Climate change could slash the size of America's economy by 10 percent by 2100 unless major action is taken, a federal government report says.

One need look no further than California's wildfires to see what devastation we can expect. When cities start burning down to the ground, a 10% effect to the economy will calculate out very quickly.

Please explain how cities will burn to the ground by wildfires caused by a small climate change.

This should be good... hehe...

A picture is worth a thousand words... Fact - cities burned to the ground.

Fact 2: Average temperature rises in the Western US are 2 deg C, unlike the worldwide 1 deg C. Hotter drier days, and this extends the hot, dry wildfire season.

Stop hiding your head in the sand...

Besides. A suburban area is not "cities."

For the umpteen millionth time "WORDS HAVE MEANING!!!"

Yes, the failing NYT paint it with an alarmist tone because of their bias, but it's actually good news. As our GDP is predicted to go up 300% in that time, global warming would put a 10% dent into that meaning we'd go up 290%. If that's all that happens to our economy then that's good news, wouldn't you agree?

That's not the way it works. The 10% totally negates any advances.

Do you have an argument that is not an ad hominem?

Interesting that you call my post Ad-Hominem, when you direct all your attacks on Scientists, without even understanding the science :roll:

If you don't understand it, then it's a political attack.

To be fair, he mainly just copies and pastes blog posts by other people attacking scientists.
