That was an interesting little story, Marla, about people seeing and reporting new cloud types.

Natural forcings?



Yes good aren't they.

"Natural Forcings of the Climate System

Natural forcings are of two types.
     

External Forcings: These are essentially linked to changes in the orbital parameters of the earth that control the intensity and location of incident solar radiation, and fluctuations in solar energy."

"Internal Forcings: These comprise all those changes that occur within the earth system itself, in particular volcanic activity, fluctuations in ocean circulations and large-scale changes in the marine and terrestrial biosphere or in the cryosphere. "

Basics of climate science. Just for you.

Like El Nino, La Nina, AMO, NAO, PDO. You know the natural things.


Ahahahah I mentioned those and Lees spewed. Now he puts them up as the cause.

One small problem: the globe has been warming since the mid 1850s, something like the Pacific Decadal Oscillation would change things only short term, like a decade.

Radiative forcings as we continue to increase the GHG content of the Atmosphere exponentially continue to drive the warming over the 167 years since the mid 1850s. No chart of temperature v time shows any hint of a reversal of warming, it show temperatures increasing exponentially.

While this has been happening radiative forcing by the sun has decreased very slightly. Oops.

Indonesia would have riots on it's hands if it tried that. It is about as far from the heart of Islam as you can get, and Muslims are well versed on only oppressing people to the extent they can get away with, particularly the ones who survived their way east through India.


Are you saying Indonesia is as far from the heart of islam as you can get? The largest muslim country on earth?

Where does Turkey fit in then? A country that is as hostile towards sharia punishment as any country on earth, and as close to the "heart" of islam as you can get?

Read what I actually posted Gandalf. It was a very simple statement. Not sure why everyone is having such trouble with it.


Yes I know what you wrote, and it is not so much a simple statement, as a simplistic one - which is why it is problematic. The lengths you will go to to maintain this silly position that the "heart" of the muslim world supports stoning and killing apostates, even when its demonstrated that great swathes of the muslim world - including a large majority of the largest muslim country on earth - oppose it, gets rather tedious. Most Indonesians oppose it - oh that doesn't count because its on the geographic periphery of "the muslim world" (whatever that means); most Turks oppose it - oh that doesn't count because Turkey is "on the border" of where historic islam reached.

This would be a lot quicker if it didn't take me ten pages every time I had to explain what I did not say.


Right, fantastic, hallelujah - so we can both agree that I was wrong - that you were *NOT* trying to dispute the claim that Turkey is a relevant example of muslims being able to adopt and embrace secularism, democracy and freedom right in what you term the "heart of islam". 

Right?....

no I didn't think so...  Roll Eyes

It is obvious that he means that the Turkey was the historical "high water mark" of Islamic expansion in Eastern Europe.  Of course, using the term "Turkey" confuses the matter because the Ottoman Empire extended into the Balkans, reaching Vienna, which is far outside the borders of today's nation of Turkey.  FD I've noted before likes to play a little fast and loose with his claims about history.


Whats funny is that from around 1300 to the end of WWI, Turkey literally controlled the land of "historic islam" - from Mecca to Baghdad to Morocco to Constantinople. FD claims Turkey was merely "on the border" of where historical islam reached, when in reality, for most of islam's existence, its heart was controlled by Turkey  Cheesy


Gandalf, Turkey is not in the 'heart' of Islam. Only it's western border was in the original Caliphate.

...

The places Islam has dominated the longest are among the most backwards on earth. Those it has dominated more recently are slowly heading that way.

It makes sense that the Caliphate was controlled from outside this region eventually. It was already suffering the effects of Islam by then. Constantinople had enough historical influence from nonMuslims to retain it's competence to do things.
