So funny....so true!
The lies have caught up to the alarmists....so they lie more with a sense of urgency.
Lol
Now they are fighting with each other....one alarmist states that hurricanes will be steered away from the mainland and another alarmist says that the computer models are not accurate so we don't know if hurricanes will be steered away. Gee isn't that we have been saying all along, GIGO.

You are DENSE.

You don't comprehend how humans communicate. Especially, the scentists are human and communicate with each other.

You are not part of the communication, LOL.

You did not answer my question: what's climate science?

What?? Could it be?!?! Atmospheric co2 can actually be beneficial ?!?!
Real science has a way of making pseudoscience and political activism look foolish EVERYTIME!!
You know what they are really doing is covering all their bases. So if we get more storms like Sandy they can say global warming and if hurricane landfall frequency declines they can say global warming, we predicted it.

Yeah, they lie both ways!! I guess that beats admitting they're clueless....which they are.
Either way in their religion it's "God's Will"

Sorry, what are scentists? For someone who understands communication, your 2nd sentence really needs some work.

The "shotgun" approach -- you don't have to be right, just close enough so the error bars cover you.

An example for deniers, who think the do nothing approach costs them less. But the reality of that in the long term costs a whole lot more.

"Global climate change will continue taxing the insurance and reinsurance industry landscape through the end of the century—especially from losses caused by sea level rise, inland flooding and drought."

That presupposes that all the calamities of global warming will actually happen.

More doom and gloom.

What is it about you warmists? Have no joy in your life? Can't be happy that temperatures have been flat for 17 years? Do 'crisis' fill a void in your life?

This was your answer to: what's climate science?

You thus failed in your answer. You don't know - just as we suspected all along - what climate science is.

Why are you in this forum?

New Zealand is having its warmest winter since records began, and it ain't too cool in Australia either.

"...the scientific picture is becoming increasingly clear that the Pacific Ocean has played a large role in the slowed surface warming in recent years, but the warming of the oceans and planet as a whole have continued unabated. Thus the slowed surface warming is very likely to be a temporary effect, similar to the flat global surface temperatures between 1940 and 1970 when the Pacific Ocean was in another cool cycle."
