Hansen noted that in determining responsibility for climate change, the effect of greenhouse gas emissions on climate is determined not by current emissions, but by accumulated emissions over the lifetime of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. By this measure, the U.K. is still the largest single cause of climate change, followed by the U.S. and Germany, even though its current emissions are surpassed by the Peoples Republic of China.[Wikipedia]

Article and data 3+ years out of date. Irrelevant. The models have just continued to perform more poorly in predicting actual recorded AGT rise since then. Something's clearly wrong with the AGT surface data and/or the models - and all we have from "the science" (the objective, honest ones) are some plausible speculation on the reasons why.

Why soooooo hard for you to admit this simple fact?

Your evaluation of the LATEST and CURRENT data and model predictive reliability I posted?

(... crickets ...)

I would advise you to read and learn yourself - but that of course would be wasted on a closed-minded believer in model infallibility like you. You have a different agenda - and it has nothing to do with "science" - your agenda here is clearly tied up in issues of your own psychic welfare.

Good luck with that.

Global warming occurs during the fourth plague as described in Revelation 16:8,9 in the King James Version of the Bible:“And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.”

Boy, those models are terrible. The only thing worse is.... the "sceptic" predictions.

Wow. That's pretty lame desperation.

As OPINION, you're free to your own.

But as a rhetorical argument, your post is tosh, and misdirected. I have posted NOTHING advocating "skeptic" predictions.

You are reduced to putting bullshyte words in my mouth rather than simply acknowledge that what I DID post about the latest reported (in)accuracy of current climate model predictions (off by a factor of 2 vs. recent actual decadal AGT rise data), with attributed source, is simple fact.

That, Sir - is intellectual dishonesty - and DENIAL on your part.

Tornadoes have always existed, they aren't evidence for man made global warming. If we have the ability to change Earth's climate, why are we incapable of stopping or steering storms like this?

I posted earlier: Our daily man-made emissions constitute 90 million tons of heat-trapping ghg's with power of 400,000 Hiroshima explosions.

Yesterday's tornado had power of about 8 Hiroshima bombs.
