If that makes you feel better, go with that, but no one even talks about this paper anymore except those on this thread. The paper couldn't even make it in a major journal even with revisions. So again I ask, if this is THE PAPER to prove global warming, why wouldn't any major journal publish it?

The issue is not a proof.

Why don't you go drink your latte and leave meddling with affairs that are none of your business.

FYI, we talk about the BEST work because it was an outsider review of the data.

Not necessarily with only a few "tweaks." The reviewer(s) might be intrigued and mention even an extension or expansion because of the opportunity at hand at the moment. Otherwise, that extra by itself would not be worth a paper but worthwhile within the present soa.

Poisons and pollutants are 'dose dependent'.

There are other things that are dose dependent, too. LOL.

Maybe some day in the future incoherent babble becomes acceptable for conversation, until then... huh?

Never mind. You have such a failed grasp of vocabulary that only remedial study can correct your posts.

Maybe you should spend less time with your Brix Blox.

Ever since Obama launched his "push" for global warming "information", a few folks here have lost all sense of perspective.

Good Observation, you are correct. These people would not know what a worthwhile cause was let alone stand for one.

Pathetic retort.

Quit taking creative writing tips from SpaceBlues.

<quoted text>No, oxygen isn't a poison.

<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.

Wrong again, Sherlock.

The mechanism of water intoxication is associated with osmotic pressure in cells. At decreasing amounts of salt in the blood, cells adjust by taking up more and more water. Consequently, the cells will swell. If this leads to transport of high amounts of water to the brain it may be extremely harmful. Swollen cells press the nerves, causing someone to experience headache. When cells seal blood vessels, this may cause a lack of oxygen, and someone loses consciousness. The direct cause of death by water intoxication is often brain oedema.

Oxygen toxicity is a condition resulting from the harmful effects of breathing molecular oxygen (O
2) at elevated partial pressures. It is also known as oxygen toxicity syndrome, oxygen intoxication, and oxygen poisoning. Historically, the central nervous system condition was called the Paul Bert effect, and the pulmonary condition the Lorrain Smith effect, after the researchers who pioneered its discovery and description in the late 19th century. Severe cases can result in cell damage and death, with effects most often seen in the central nervous system, lungs and eyes. Oxygen toxicity is a concern for underwater divers, those on high concentrations of supplemental oxygen (particularly premature babies), and those undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

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.

How does a late-winter snowstorm on a mile-high peak in the southern half of New Zealand prove that global warming isn't happening?

Only a denier would think so.

Apparently picking a post from a string of discussion (ie,'context') is beyond your critical thinking skills.

But of course, any challenge (perceived or real) to your religion is the work of a heretic and must be squashed.

How pitiful you are.

Actually, she tried to wedge it into the discussion as evidence. Pitiful as your remark. Even a third-grader knows that climate changes are of the first magnitude while weather changes can be of the second magnitude.

"Wedge" it in? It was supporting evidence.

Sheesh... and you wonder why I don't take you seriously?

And third graders "know" this? Is that what you learned last year?
