Full story: Newsday

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

Do 97% of Climate Scientisst agree with that logic?
Colorado has been in a drought. I guess the models were right.

Why don't you develop a model that can predict the weather on September 15th, 2020?

"Do 97% of Climate Scientisst agree with that logic?" Look it up, dear.

From the weather channel:
It will take climate scientists many months to complete studies into whether man-made global warming made the Boulder flood more likely to occur, but the amount by which this event has exceeded past events suggests that man-made warming may have played some role by making the event worse than it otherwise would have been.
Considering that this flood event occurred in the backyard of some of the top climate researchers in the world, it is likely that this event will be closely researched. Boulder is home to several major weather and climate research institutions, including the National Center for Atmospheric Research and the Earth System Research Laboratory, both of which were forced to close due to flooding.

This would be news if the didn't attribute the flooding to global warming.

<quoted text> I read it and it didn't answer the question of how is it that your opinion that it WILL happen is more credible than that of the scientist's who have never said what YOU said; that a crisis WILL happen.
Scientists would have doomed children as well and this is about the life or death of the planet and if this really were a crisis the lab coats would have given us a real warning for a real crisis.
As long as you accept "maybe" as "will be" it shows who the educated planet lovers really are.
All denial will end when science agrees it will actually happen, not just possibly happen.
Read it again. Your mind is not trained on science. It is obvious.

Good luck.

Do you have a comprehension problem, or are you unable to resist being a jackass?

True or False:
Global warming proponents would make more 'news' by proclaiming a weather event wasn't due to global warming.

Think hard -- I know that's painful for you.

The world is looking at what is going on with this Obama talking about chemical weapons again.
The Internationals tend to feel awe as what would come from US by portraying and labeling others again?
If they are not North Korea, Iran, or Axis-of-evil, who will be those again?
Obama has demonstrated distasteful and bad results everywhere, in views and activation of dramatic incidental situations, from Libya and now to Syria.
Now, Obama's saying to strike Syria based on chemical weapons issue makes the whole world nervous.
Obama looks like another big terror on the planet, to create drama horror in the pursuance of destruction of chemical weapons in Syria, like Iraq horror again.
Obama is exhibiting the Bush molded puppet by doing the same old Bush psycho drama by converting Iraq to Syria of using the same scheme of chemical weapons matter..
The whole world is witnessing another psycho horror Obama at work.
Obama is doing and acting as the Bush clone robot in trying to make another bad drama of the same old thing on chemical weapons about Iraq from the previous psycho Bush, by checking to chemical weapons in pursuit for destroying them in Syria, as If is another Iraq and Bush drama.
But, every US pursuit of chemical weapons has suffered large damages, and only can be viewed as the psycho drama of never-ending chemical weapons kind cycle drum. As of those days, to beat up the drum of striking that said Iraq will strike the world with silos of WMD (but where were any long range Iraq missiles to fire silos first), that US must destroy those Iraq WMD.
That is the terror drama going on and on from US , that the whole world is seeing again.
Yet, it goes on and on for the psycho drum of drama on chemical weapons again.
But, Middle East had not been proven in the usage of chemical weapons by killing a lot of people.
US bombs and missiles had killed at least few hundreds of thousands people instead in the ME region, in the pursuance of chemical weapons issue, while ending up finding none of WMD in Iraq.
US gets many big damages today (including getting a bad name) in the checking and pursuit of attempting to destroy the WMD in Iraq, as it is doing the same thing to Syria now, like a repeated cycle.
As alike to Iraq case, there will be high doubts that US would end up with any good results about doing the same thing to Syria.
Obama has dug himself a big hole, by his exposition of dramatic psycho terror, by dong Bush drama deal.
Obama could not provide solid proof and prove concretely that ASSAD USED SARIN GAS ON THE 8/21 INCIDENT, as this may be another same Bush drama lie to strike Syria.
US does have a lot of psycho dramas---IT IS troublesome for Obama if he were to use ground troops, when Assad would not let US in to check, that people will be watching the tense drama again, like Iraq case.
Obama's policies are as Bush clone molded polices, as nothing is new but the drama kind of terror again.
Libya also had chemical weapons but hardly used them, yet it said it had destroyed them--the point is that chemical weapons had not been used much and killed much in recent times, but the missiles and bombs had killed lots instead, especially in the matters of chasing chemical weapons.
From what Obama had done so far in every policy, US already suffers damage in Libya in the Obama policy as US embassy was hit while there was another hit to Libya foreign ministry building on another 9/11, just a few days ago. Libya is still impregnated with lots of volatility of terror rebels like those in Syria,that could uprise to explode any time against US as well as the current Libya government.
US policies in the pursuit of chemical weapons ended up nothing good as all horrors and bad dramas, while this same thing again to Syria is trying to do it again by Obama, as if US has never learned by repeatedly doing the same thing, to want to have to take MORE DAMAGES--AND THAT is the way of Obama's in making terror dramas for getting more damages.

Earth has gained 19,000 Manhattans of sea ice since this date last year, the largest increase on record.
Altho toxic topix AGW deniers seldom make comments on record shattering AGW enhanced events AT the time of those events, toxic topix AGW deniers love comparing those record shattering AGW enhanced events to "recovery" events, such as 1998-99, 2007-08 & now 2012-13. However, toxic topix AGW deniers seldom get the science & mathematics right, because they don't have science & mathematics degrees.
//////////

Sea ice VOLUME is a better measure of conditions than short climate events:

Arctic VOLUME as of September 1, 2013 is not quite 16% HIGHER(not 60%, like toxic topix AGW deniers report) than that of the "2010-to-current" time range. Average Arctic sea ice VOLUME for September 1, for the period 1980-89, was ~15,000 cubic kilometers. Present September 1, 2013 sea ice VOLUME is almost 3 times less,~5100 cubic kilometers,~10,000 cubic kilometers less than the 1980-89 period for September 1.

Put 10,000 cubic kilometers of 1980's ice minus present day ice on Manhattan....... & you'll have an ice depth of 14 miles. "motheaten" has a whole lot of Arctic sea ice, still to recover.

Yes, the models that predicted drought were right. And the models that predicted flooding were right!
And the forecast of "Once slow-moving threat, global warming speeds up..." Is, well, "a Fact" in the minds of the true believers.

As far as my "predictions" record: it is 100% accurate and if I chose to forecast the "weather" for Sept. 15th, 2020 it too would be correct. But that would be pointless, for as the experts have learned, as long as the prognostication is far enough into the future there is no risk to one's credibility for being wrong.

How is science agreeing for 28 years that a CO2 crisis only could happen, not WILL happen supposed to be a consensus of anything? No wonder we have deniers so why doesn't science end this costly debate now and agree it will be an inevitable crisis not just a possible and likely and potential crisis?

You must do as science says; never say a crisis will happen, only could happen.

Science has never agreed or said any crisis WILL actually happen, so why are you remaining believers saying it WILL happen? Who’s the fear mongering neocon now?

The problem with that is, your lot dismiss ANY event no matter how big or small as evidence that the effect of warming has already arrived. Floods in Europe, China, Australia etc all based on a huge amount of water (record breaking amounts) dropped in a small amount of time. Then if there is drought in a area where high rainfall is expected that's dismissed as well. So what will it take to admit there is a "enemy at the gates" which at the moment is you.
