Was anyone really arguing that the hurricanes, as a whole, were caused by climate change? MORE or STRONGER hurricanes maybe, but surely no one is saying that "if it weren't for that gosh darn climate change we wouldn't have anymore hurricanes". Honestly sounds like he's being willfully ignorant with what I can only assume is a poor attempt at a straw man intended to push a narrative.

There are actually SHITLOADS of people that think that these hurricanes wouldn't be happening at all if it wasn't for man-made CO2 emissions. People are stupid, don't underestimate

Shhh. You're breaking the narrative.

I'm going to have to agree that 7 billion people can have an affect on the climate.

I will agree that we have varying unreliable data and what is being recorded hasn't necessarily been perfectly recorded before. Climate scientists are trying to piece together a concise history from vague data clues.

But 7 billion people plus the advent of the industrial revolution pumping out various chemicals with insulating properties can have an adverse effect on a world of our size.

The proper term is GEOENGINENEERING. Otherwise known as weather weapons.

Poor way to analyze data. (Exaggerated to illustrate the point) but theoretically we could have had 100 hurricanes from 2000 to 2017 and 19 from 1850 to 2000.

Sure you can compute the average of 119/(2017-1850) = .71 Hurricanes per year. But again that doesn't prove nor disprove anything because it does not consider any trends.

Woah sir, you go against the flow here on Voat, you'll be called a kike and downvoted. Climate change is like evolution in some ways, where the right winged, religious nuts denied evolution and ridiculed anyone for believing it. They brought up all these "proofs" and "facts" on how it was not real.

Now, most believe in it, though some still deny it.

[–] morojax 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

no one is denying it, the question is to what degree does man actually affect climate change?

[–] weezkitty 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

The most annoying part is that people don't realize that the source of the denial originated from the oil lobby
