When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met Office report quietly released
The new data, compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea, was issued quietly on the internet, without any media fanfare, and, until today, it has not been reported.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/articl...

But don't let that stop all of you armchair, know nothing - thinking that you know it all, repetitive mantra speaking, 3rd grade science level learners and devout religious mmcc devotees![Burn any incense to your god today?]

Al made millions, if not billions off of his lies & carbon cashing schemes, why haven't you? All you did was run your uneducated keyboard mouth. lol.

Are any of you making plans yet to walk your talk? No? lol.[Imagine my surprise, like you imagine mmcc].

Those under 200 sq ft 'save the planet' jail cell apartments and sheds on wheels are calling your name.

You really can drop the farce now. The powers that be are hell bent on destroying this once great country using any 'ism' that they can with or without the lie of mmcc.

Really, move on to the next big lie and embrace it with your whole being.
Don't forget to not say anything of intellegence with that lie also. Just make fun of the truth sayers and those who oppose your silly, uneducated rhetoric.

None of you mmcc religious devotees have to debate facts and reality like a grown up with the next lie either. Just keep on acting like 3rd graders on the playground. No one expects any better from you. Honest.

LOL. Hey, why don't you post the end of that:

So let’s be clear. Yes: global warming is real, and some of it at least has been caused by the CO2 emitted by fossil fuels. But the evidence is beginning to suggest that it may be happening much slower than the catastrophists have claimed – a conclusion with enormous policy implications.

Hey deniers, this is for you:

An article by David Rose appears today in the Mail on Sunday under the title:‘Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met Office report quietly released… and here is the chart to prove it’

It is the second article Mr Rose has written which contains some misleading information, after he wrote an article earlier this year on the same theme – you see our response to that one here.

http://metofficenews.wordpress.com/

So check it out, right? <sarcasm>

If you care,...
No, I do not care!

The issue has already been settled through science many moons ago.

Religious zealots believing in various unscientific beliefs have always been around thru the ages.

Belief:

Belief is the psychological state in which an individual holds a proposition or premise to be true. A false belief is not considered to be knowledge, even if it is sincere.

People may adopt the beliefs of a charismatic leader, even if those beliefs fly in the face of all previous beliefs, and produce actions that are clearly not in their own self-interest.

The primary thrust of the advertising [and propaganda] industry is that repetition forms beliefs.-wiki

Surely wiki is understandable for the religious devotees of mmcc.

I've got better things to do and places to go, more gas to burn and more electricity to use because I like to enjoy my life.

So, when are you going to walk your talk?

Have you moved into your 200-300 sq ft closet yet?

Are you living hand to mouth everyday, walking or riding your bicycle everywhere, owning little of value?

Driving a Smart car? A Volt?

Are you paying your penance for your over consumption sins?

Are you willing to pay 1/2 your paycheck/income in tax for restitution of those sins?

Have any of your 'leaders' who are still making millions and billions off of the mmcc/cc scam they say they so ardently believe in, done any of those things?

Why the Pres is building/buying a sea side mansion in Hawaii right now. A Pres candidate is building a 3 story mansion oceanside in Cali right now.

Doom, gloom and disaster if ordinary people do not reduce their lifestyle and stop consuming so much because of mmcc/cc. Evil carbon emissions.

Has anyone addressed those 'evil carbon emmissions' from all the continual, ongoing, 24/7, 365 war machinery on the other HALF of the world?

ROFL.

And the minions suck up the bullsh*t.

WOW.

Yes, you're frustrated because they don't pay you for your rubbish posts.

Hey, Daily Mail contradicted its own title at the end:

So let’s be clear. Yes: global warming is real, and some of it at least has been caused by the CO2 emitted by fossil fuels.

But you don't get it!

Hush, don't speak for the science that you don't know and hate so much!

roflmao !!!

Not frustrated whatsoever. That's just comical.

People are who they are and will believe what they are told and constantly repeat it, rather than think for themselves and find out if it's even true.

Just scanning the recent and predictible childishness of the mmcc/cc believers reasonings, repetitiveness and mimicry to see if anything had changed.
Yawn.

Wasn't part of the fantasy of mmcc that the ice caps are melting [and polar bears are dying] which the mmcc/cc believers here STILL regurgitate and STILL believe? It was said that we were 'past that tipping point'
YEARS ago.
Oops, didn't happen. Another LIE. lol.

[Woe is me! The arctic/polar ice is dissolving and melting and is G-O-N-E! It may be coming back thicker, but that's also because of mmcc/cc. lol.]

Wasn't part of the fantasy that the oceans are rising and will continue to rise and eventually flood the cities?[Wait a minute, the ice caps did significantly melt according to mmcc/cc devotees. Why didn't the oceans significantly rise as the fairytale said?]

'Tell me then, why do the ones who are making millions/billions off the mmcc/cc lie all want to live in their huge mansions right on the oceans?'

I guarantee that just their closets are bigger than your house. So much for those 'evil overconsumers' who contribe carbon emissions to mmcc/cc. lol.

Why aren't they afraid? Like they tell you to be fearful?

Because it's all a LIE.
All of it.

"Why the Pres is building/buying a sea side mansion in Hawaii right now. A Pres candidate is building a 3 story mansion oceanside in Cali right now."

Al has sea side mansions also.

As the fairytale goes,'The oceans are and will rise and eventually flood the coast and cities'

LOL.

BTW. I know and understand 'the science' as you put it. Science is not something to be hated. It is unmoving FACT to rely on.

MMCC/CC belief in pseudo & made up science, and ignoring the true science is just plain ignorance of true science.

THAT farce, is comical.

So what are you doing to walk your talk? You never answered.
lol.

Keep the faith.
[But how faithful are you really if you have no actions that follow your mmcc/cc Mantra?]
What does that make you?

lol.

Rest assured, those 'humans' which you refer to, which are your fellow mmcc/cc church devotees will be back soon.

Don't worry, they will give you more nice judgeits so you can feel good about yourself and get the affirmation you need from your group of fellow religious devotee 'mmcc church' HYPOCRITE believers.
It is said that people follow and reflect their leaders. lol.

Hang in there.

In the meantime, get yourself a floatation device [maybe the colorful kind with a horsie head for swimming pools] in eager anticipation of the rising oceans because the ice caps are melting at a furious pace these days.
Better warn those mmcc/cc carbon wasting believing spouters that are living/building on the ocean too!

Be careful if it's raining where you are. Thor may show up unexpectedly.

Actually, more like thirty years, and it has to occur in ALL of the temperature assessments. This is to avoid change due to 'decadal cycles' which cause a change in AIR temperature that is not reflected by SURFACE temperature. Also to avoid deficiencies in any one temperature study (i.e the CRU has a problem with measuring temperatures in the polar regions, where warmth is sent during ENSO cycles).

http://www.cru.uea.ac.uk/cru/info/warming/
the anomaly shows up in CRU data, but is not duplicated in other studies such as
http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/graphs_v3/

This indicates that the CRU model is likely in error due to the RAPID WARMING OF THE ARCTIC regions. When you have a KNOWN FLAW, it is not scientific to claim significance for that model when the rest of the models WITHOUT that flaw show no similar feature.

Nice review of denier ignorance.

It's time to post

for a summary of global warming and climate change myths... 173 of them. Reminds you how well-organized these deniers have been. Still ignorant, though.

David Icke's web forum is the top link- the man who believes reptiles in disguise rule the UK.

Plus a series of denier blogs and a Daily Mail article, non of which can provide a link to the source.

One of those quotes that deniers spread around without every questioning whether it was actually said or not.

Can we have a link to the source?
