Full story: Newsday

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

I don't see any of them giving up their central air and heat, limos or oversees travel. Our great leader who claims AGW is a crisis hates the cold and cranks up the thermostat so high in the oval office you could grow orchids in there according to David Axelrod.
oh 'kristy' when you are standing that close to hillary you have to get warm somehow, travel is the best way. on a lighter note, the carbon tax against people in austraila is being disposed of and the sun is shutting down for a while, leaving 'climate' scientists stunned. so much for global warming. their lifestyles cannot exist without constant taxpayer funding. we will soon be told of another hysteric crisis that can only be solved by taxpayers money in the form of government grants to the former 'climate scientists'. god has no mercy on our souls.

The question was asked at the ballot box in Australia.
Australia's conservative opposition swept to power Saturday, ending six years of Labor Party rule and winning over a disenchanted public by promising to end a HATED TAX ON CARBON EMISSIONS, boost a flagging economy and bring about political stability after years of Labor infighting.
.........
Hang on, I posted a bit on the Murdoch media a few weeks back & he controls 75% of the media in Australia. On the press monitors the ratio of pro government & pro climate change stories was next to zero. In other-words a massive media campaign to bring down a government and destroy a carbon tax run by ONE person. At times on a ratio of 100 to 1. It was enough for the gullible to be taken in, it doesn't mean climate change just went away.

<quoted text>FyI:
“We estimate that Earth will cease to be habitable somewhere between 1.75 and 3.25 billion years from now.
“A fter this point, Earth will be in the ‘hot zone’ of the sun, with temperatures so high that the seas would evaporate. We would see a catastrophic and terminal extinction event for all life.
“Of course conditions for humans and other complex life will become impossible much sooner – and this is being accelerated by anthropogenic climate change.
“Humans would be in trouble with even a small increase in temperature, and near the end only microbes in niche environments would be able to endure the heat.”

Correct, the goldilocks zone will no longer apply to us. But with global warming going ahead full steam we can make the planet that way in a 100 years or so. I think i prefer the 1.7 billion number.

Please, the Australian politicians created an illusion. They claim the taxes are to "save the planet" and they jump up and down telling us how they are cutting CO2 emissions, but really they aren't because they are just sending the CO2 emissions to China. Again, how does that solve this "crisis" that you say is apocalyptic. If it is as dire as you all say, why are they sending coal to China? Follow the money...tax the fossil fuel industry who then pass the cost to the public, fill the government coffers and then ship those dirty emissions to China.

A message to Australia from David Suzuki pleading not to drop the carbon tax.
The whole point of this is, if the USA adopted carbon loading/trading/tax as a national policy the world would follow in a heart beat.

Not even microbes on Mars?

The Curiosity rover's failure to detect methane on Mars is a blow to theories that the planet may still host some types of life, say mission scientists.

Posting the inane math errors, uncivilized racism & prosecutable threats of toxic topix AGW deniers shows the historical untenable position that toxic topix AGW deniers belatedly & have always found themselves. It is important to educate new toxic topix AGW deniers to their inherited ASS-ets.

You are correct on the exporting of emissions and the same can be said of Canada. It saved Canada and Australia from the GFC one of the few countries in the world that did not go into recession and maintained a AAA credit rating along with 5% unemployment. Yet Murdoch media painted this as a monumental failure. However, per head of population, China is a lot greener than the US and they are quickly moving their economy towards emission limits. What you don't realise that when it comes, they will be able to take the hit a lot better than the US economically, that's the saddest part of you deniers just looking at the short term.

toxic topix AGW denier "middleofthedownwronggull y" continues in the middle of the down wrong gully.
You weren't around when "lyin' brian" used to fake its knowledge of mathematics & science. Yes, "lyin' brian" was reduced to its sub-sub-kindergarten level of education by committing errors of 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, 3000 TIMES, stopped a while, then tried more math, committing further errors of 73 million TIMES, & a terrible belly flop error of 2.5+ trillion TIMES. Its math errors accompanied its uncivilized & prosecutable alleged & proud threats. Many other toxic topix AGW deniers are like-wise(but not wise).
Yes, "lyin' brian" earned its name, "slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig & alleged & proud threatener lyin' brian", as "middleofthedownwronggull y" earns its name.
Please, continue defending toxic topix AGW denier "slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig & alleged & proud threatener lyin' brian".
Please.
quick question.....why do you rant about brian everytime you post to me?? that guy must've really done a number on you, sugar!!

The website that posted the 1950-2009 graph said this about the graph:
“As the graph below indicates, the increase in disasters closely tracks the rise in global temperatures, which rose most sharply in the 1990s and continued to rise, but more gradually, in the past decade.”
So you and fairgame go ahead with your delusional thinking that somehow this is a “top ten” list that gets disasters added and subtracted if it makes you feel better.
Avoid the facts.
Change the subject.
Forget that your original contention was that Munich Re had been juggling the graphs and, as evidence, you produced two different graphs and wondered why the numbers were different. The top ten list "supposed" delusion is your face-saving attempt, and you can't even understand that simple concept.

Your concession is accepted, as noted by all here.

You never had any credibility and now you've even lost that.

Frankly, what his work demonstrates is that there is a robust relationship between GHG levels and global temperatures, where he couldn't go TOO far wrong with just rough data.
In his time there was no "aerosols" to worry about and the 'broadening of the bands' for CO2 was not known. Nor is his 'match' to present warming correct in that our rate of warming is slower (matching his erroneous values) while his 'equilibrium' warming is and was wrong.
Science has progressed and the so called 'correctness' of his calculations is more of a 'beginners luck' than accurate. A competent scientists but without all the data.
I think for predictions from 75 years ago, without benefit of thousands of eyes on the ground and eyes circling the Earth, he did pretty damn good.

"You're f*cked."
Not a stupid mind, but a sick mind.
Just letting you know what was happening.

There is no persuading a denier. That have to change from within.

Ridicule is deserved when deception is attempted. At the very least.

Many believe global warming is a cover up for what is actually inevitable. Many believe that our earth is moving closer to the sun each year. The sun is a big ball of energy ( you learn that in 3rd grade or so) and what does energy do? It pulls or pushes. In our case the sun is pulling. We are not moving around the sun at a perfect circle circumference but instead we are in the toilet bowl effect (being sucked right in) this would explain holes in our atmosphere, the continued global warming (problems) etc. It also explains a theory called "Terra-Forming" terra forming is what is happening to Mars. Mars is becoming more earth like and habitable. Maybes it moving towards the position of earth? what are your thoughts?

Now that you've finished the third grade,it's time for you to learn the truth.

We only have a couple of weeks before we are sucked in the Sun. We need your help to finish building a spaceship to got to Mars and colonize it.

Can we count on your contribution of $100 toward this worthy goal?
