You mean mere unsubstantiated belief isn't convincing enough?

Better question: Why can't you just stick to the OP topic of this message thread, or the topic of climate change, instead of hurling ad hominems and appeals to authority?

So, when exactly will you be debating the topic of the OP of this message thread or climate change, instead of hurling fallacies?

And here is some food for thought while you decide the answer.:

Quote:
The evidence for rapid climate change is compelling:


Sea level rise

Global sea level rose about 17 centimeters (6.7 inches) in the last century. The rate in the last decade, however, is nearly double that of the last century.4


Global temperature rise

All three major global surface temperature reconstructions show that Earth has warmed since 1880.5 Most of this warming has occurred since the 1970s, with the 20 warmest years having occurred since 1981 and with all 10 of the warmest years occurring in the past 12 years.6 Even though the 2000s witnessed a solar output decline resulting in an unusually deep solar minimum in 2007-2009, surface temperatures continue to increase.7


Warming oceans

The oceans have absorbed much of this increased heat, with the top 700 meters (about 2,300 feet) of ocean showing warming of 0.302 degrees Fahrenheit since 1969.8


Shrinking ice sheets

The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have decreased in mass. Data from NASA's Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment show Greenland lost 150 to 250 cubic kilometers (36 to 60 cubic miles) of ice per year between 2002 and 2006, while Antarctica lost about 152 cubic kilometers (36 cubic miles) of ice between 2002 and 2005.


Declining Arctic sea ice

Both the extent and thickness of Arctic sea ice has declined rapidly over the last several decades.9



Glacial retreat

Glaciers are retreating almost everywhere around the world — including in the Alps, Himalayas, Andes, Rockies, Alaska and Africa.10



Extreme events

The number of record high temperature events in the United States has been increasing, while the number of record low temperature events has been decreasing, since 1950. The U.S. has also witnessed increasing numbers of intense rainfall events.11


Ocean acidification

Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the acidity of surface ocean waters has increased by about 30 percent.12,13 This increase is the result of humans emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and hence more being absorbed into the oceans. The amount of carbon dioxide absorbed by the upper layer of the oceans is increasing by about 2 billion tons per year.14,15


Decreased snow cover

Satellite observations reveal that the amount of spring snow cover in the Northern Hemisphere has decreased over the past five decades and that the snow is melting earlier.16

.
So in other words you have no engineering degree. You just want to imply that you do.

Only for people who somehow believe that when someone says they are a multiple-degreed engineer that means they aren't a multiple-degreed engineer.



And it seems, based on your responses and line of questioning, that you believe in appeals to authority. Thus, what education background does scientist witch hunter Rep. Lamar Smith have that makes him some sort of authority (or expert) when it comes to the topic of Climate Change?

Or, yourself for that matter?

(Personally speaking, I don't like to use the label "expert" when mentioning people who talk about a topic in science while I debate said topic in science because that's essentially an appeal to authority. But, since you apparently believe in that fallacy, it would be inconsistent for you to not apply that fallacy to everyone who speaks about a topic in science.)
Thanks from imaginethat and RNG

Well, perhaps that would be an answer of "yes" from him, if I were to be a Jedi-Politician.
