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

<quoted text>In the context of biology, poisons are substances that cause disturbances to organisms,[1] usually by chemical reaction or other activity on the molecular scale, when a sufficient quantity is absorbed by an organism. The fields of medicine (particularly veterinary) and zoology often distinguish a poison from a toxin, and from a venom. Toxins are poisons produced by some biological function in nature, and venoms are usually defined as toxins that are injected by a bite or sting to cause their effect, while other poisons are generally defined as substances absorbed through epithelial linings such as the skin or gut.

These space photographs show the world's islands as they've never been seen before.
What looks like a fish in one image, and a collection of blue gems in another are actually Heron Island and part of the Great Barrier Reef, both in Australia.

So... you did not notice:

Don't like your being held accountable to the same standards warmists use?

As I've said before, perhaps when the "experts" of global warming start acting like it's the 'crisis' they say and make the lifestyle changes they promote, then the THEORY might gain some credibility.

So far, the operating motto is,

Do as I say, not as I do.

I noticed the two labels. BUT one shows a small and HIGHLY populated island (lots of houses). The other shows a different shaped island with NO evidence of habitation and a nearby coastline. Care to actually address my point?

And for being the largest island in James Bay, just google it.. the answer is yes.

Global Warming is Bull S..t.
The past years have no where come close to being any of the warmest years on record.
Al Gore has made Billions of $ off of fools rushing to change our planet to "Green Power". Good luck on that , every attempt has failed. Drill right now for the largest oil deposits, and natural Gas deposits in the world. Right here in the USA....and send Al Gore back to the cesspool that he came from.

No it didn't. Why do you think BEST failed peer review from the Journal of Geophysical Research and they refused to publish it? There were problems with the BEST temperatures and UHI that were never corrected. The BEST paper did finally get published, but in the first publication of a new journal.

The head of the World Inviromental Organization,is Gorbachev, who used to be the MAN in charge of
Russia,when Reagan was the MAN in charge of America..He is a "SOCIALIST",and it's not by accident that his policies are aimed at us!,who happen to be a CAPITALIST society!...Algore sold us out with his 'GLOBAL WARMING'lies,with very little proof it even exsist!.....Just a bunch of Communist propaganda,and a way of bankrupting us with higher taxes,and fines.I wouldn't be surprised if we all don't have to start wearing some sort of meter mask,to charge us for the CO2 we emit with every breath we exhaust into the atmosphere,now that would be a huge money maker for the DEMOCRAT SOCIALIST PARTY........

I asked the other poster a civil and honest question and pointed out I was viewing the photos on my mobile device.
You jump at the chance to fling an insult. Pretty revealing since your posts never substantiate your contrived viewpoints.
Why ask others to make a complete list?? Do you doubt your abilities in that regard, too, son?

Oh, gee. "Audio waveform - Raw data - Charity Tip Jar" is real convincing..
But I meant the BEST study. http://tinyurl.com/cgxj7j8
"CALL me a converted skeptic. Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming. Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. Im now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause. "
So the 'errors' that are touted by the denialists over and over were found to be nothing of the sort.
Actually it was Muller's paper that had errors. Even the warmists panned his paper that got declined to be published in Journal of Geophysical Research.

But could you tell me exactly when Muller was a skeptic. Here is an interview in 2008 where he says this:

"Back in the early 80s, I resigned from the Sierra Club over the issue of global warming. At that time, they were opposing nuclear power. What I wrote them in my letter of resignation was that, if you oppose nuclear power, the U.S. will become much more heavily dependent on fossil fuels, and that this is a pollutant to the atmosphere that is very likely to lead to global warming."

And this:

"If [Al Gore] reaches more people and convinces the world that global warming is real, even if he does it through exaggeration and distortion which he does, but hes very effective at it then let him fly any plane he wants."

And this:

"The bottom line is that there is a consensus the [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] and the president needs to know what the IPCC says. Second, they say that most of the warming of the last 50 years is probably due to humans. You need to know that this is from carbon dioxide, and you need to understand which technologies can reduce this and which cant. Roughly 1 degree Fahrenheit of global warming has taken place; were responsible for one quarter of it. If we cut back so we dont cause any more, global warming will be delayed by three years and keep on going up. And now the developing world is producing most of the carbon dioxide."

http://grist.org/article/lets-get-physical/

Sounds like Muller is a liar.

New Zealand snow storm.

September 4, 2013:

HUNDREDS of skiers are stuck on New Zealand's Mt Hutt after freak weather forced its closure.

A combination of drifting snow and poor visibility has been blamed. While ski area management were aware of an approaching front and poor forecast, the situation deteriorated quickly, Mt Hutt ski area manager James McKenzie said.

There are 316 people trapped on the mountain.

"We made a decision to close the mountain at 11.30 this morning and a number of people made it safely down the road," he said.

"However at midday a combination of new snow blowing around everywhere and wind gusts of up to 45km/h, especially around the Saddles, meant visibility along the upper section of the access road deteriorated to the extent we closed the road completely.

You are so DENSE.

What happened is exactly how science journals operate. Do I have to teach you how to publish or that it is considered an honor to publish in a new journal?

Alas, you are totally clueless. Watch this to learn a little:
