I haven't seen you exposing anything but your ignorance, certainly not any real climate science.
I haven't seen any facts from you either, though you brag about having some, somewhere.
What respondents weren't used? Show us the distortions in their answers.
A big, fat zero from you........AGAIN!
i've provided emails from participants disputing the cook interpretations many times ON THIS THREAD! go back and look. stop being a lazy, shoot from the hip, clod.

funny when someone from the magnolia state calls someone ignorant. based on your states history....that has to be at least a pot kettle thing!! LOL

MN is very dry..
ST. PAUL, Minn.(AP)- Hot, dry weather is putting stress on pastures across Minnesota.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in its weekly crops and weather report for Minnesota that soil moisture supplies continue to decline. Almost one-third of the state's topsoil and 23% of its subsoil is rated very short.
Many parts of the state received no rain last week, and the statewide average was only 0.05 inches. Meanwhile, the state's average temperature was 4.4 degrees above normal at 66.9 degrees.
Nearly half the state's pastures are rated in poor to very poor condition. Corn and soybean conditions are both rated 51% good or excellent.
Minnesota's sweet corn harvest advanced 14%age points to 70% complete, but remains behind the normal 76% for this time.
You didn't state why the hot dry weather is putting stress on corn and soybeans:

From May 1, 2013:

While we all complain about the weather, farmers need cooperation from Mother Nature to make their money, and the cool spring has pushed back planting of this year’s sweet corn.

Some experts claim that will mean a smaller crop and corn that’s more vulnerable to damage from summer heat.

“You’ve got to be an optimist to be in this business,” said Jerry Untiedt, owner of Untiedt’s Vegetable Farm.

Untiedt has farmed Minnesota for more than 40 years, and he said this year has been challenging — it’s the latest his farm has ever planted sweet corn.

“April 24 was our previous late date,” Untiedt said.“We don’t plant until ice is off the lakes. That didn’t happen here until Monday, April 29.”

>>Ann Althouse makes a great point today with regard to a UK Guardian story entitled, "That snow outside is what global warming looks like," which has as its tendentious point that all that cold and snow in Britain this winter doesn't disprove global warming. Althouse says simply (and devastatingly) that "when everything is evidence of the thing you want to believe, it might be time to stop pretending you're all about science."

Althouse doesn't say it precisely, but what she's talking about is actually a fundamental premise in the philosophy of science (via Karl Popper), namely, that scientific fact has to be "falsifiable," i.e., there has to be some evidence that, if true, would make the theory false. If all evidence can be incorporated in the theory -- much like everything can be described as "God's will," or by the phrase "God works in mysterious ways," or "God can do anything" -- then you are not talking about science, but religion. If warmth is evidence of global warming, and cold is evidence of global warming -- or, in England, if no snow = global warming and snow = global warming -then global warming is not science anymore, it's a faith system. And, like any faith system, its arguments of late have often boiled down to demanding that heretics be silenced.

Warmists needn't explain anything if global warming is non-falsifiable.

Shotgun science = we've got 1000's of predictions so whenever anything happens, we can find something that's close, and then argue that proves the theory.

I'll ignore the kindergarten stuff since you don't have anything else. We have to suffer the little children, I understand.
