The weird thing about this thread, apart from Bozo, is that it's almost 5 years old and Glowbull warming hasn't speeded up for well over 15 years, which makes an even bigger mockery of this thread than Bozo's presence.
In your last post... you lied big time..

You guys have to get that silly little notion about global warming out of your head. It's not real.

It's done. Over.

It's like the AIDS hysteria.

"There may be no one left (without massive federal aid)" Donna Shalala, HHS secretary. "By 1991, 1 in 10 babies may be AIDS victims." USA Today 1988. In 1987 Oprah Winfrey stated on her show that a fifth of heterosexuals would be dead of AIDS by 1990.

There's an interesting discussion over on wattsupwiththat regarding volcanic outgassing of CO2.

Hmm... the warmists seems to have a missed the obvious in lieu of their "settled science".

Damn!

Gee... a repeated and demonstrated liar is calling out someone for a likewise sin?

What penance did you pay to 'offset' your transgressions?

Go be irrelevant elsewhere.

Al Gore is brought up again and again, because he SAYS it's a crisis, yet doesn't behave as it is.
AL GORE is likewise claiming it's "settled" science, but doesn't act as if it's the "crisis" he says the "science" supports.
Like your buddy Space Cadet, it's always 'someone else' who needs to change, but not him.
Do go on about Al Gore... I do love to throw his hypocrisy back in your face and then watch you try to invent another way to give him a free pass.
Like I said, the best(only?) argument you have is Al Gore.

Are you this thick in public, or just on Topix.

Gotta walk before you can run. One would think that a tiny admission of Al Gore's hypocrisy would be a simple matter.

But not to a warmist.

Why bother with more complex discussion when the obvious cannot be admitted?

Baby steps... baby steps. I can do it.

Close but no cigar. They said that the last 17 years with 'La-Nina' noise (similar to the profound warming in 1998 from El-Nino, but in the opposite direction) in 'not significant'.
<quoted text>
Here they filter out the noise and say that the SIGNAL of global warming is still there and still rapidly increasing. This uses a 'filter length' appropriate to climate studies.
Lol... wonderful!
You remind me of "The Boss" on that 'Twix' commercial.

Al Gore, Al Gore, Al Gore, blab, blab, blab. Can't you find anything else to support your denial?

The Earth is warming. CO2 is a GHG. Burning fossil fuels is increasing the CO2 in the atmosphere. Those are facts. Dispute them is you can. Quit whining about Al Gore.

Once again, oh thick one, I'm starting at the basics.

Al Gore is a global warming hypocrite.

That is such a simple admission and it's been well documented.

When you manage the simple, I'll wade into the complex.

I have a roof full of solar panels & my neighbour, the other neighbour who doesn't just whines about it like you.
Just think if everyone got them, you would have nothing to whine about & everyone is sharing the burden.

If your selling it to the power company at the retail rate, your getting a subsidy from every other ratepayer. You aren't paying for the electrical infrastructure you're using, but the rest of us are.

Well that's going to be life in the new green economy. Of course we get paid a higher rate than what we buy in. It was the incentive to spend the $$$ in the first place. But that's ok, we need the ignorant to keep on being that way and they will always be the losers once carbon reduction is compulsory. That is going to happen as sure as night follows day, whether you like it or not. So you either get onboard or dig deeper in your pockets for your denial.

Al Gore and David Black also invested in green energy companies who received special grants and loan guarantees and made millions from now defunct green energy companies. Al Gore, Mr. Green Jeans himself, has along with his business partner, David Black invested in pharma directly related to the recently enforced ACA law starting in 10/01/2013.....

How convenient wouldn't you say?

SEC has rules on insider trading but look at Congress. We have a cesspool of insider trading and law making from our Congress. Portfolio's of Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the Democratic Party should be reviewed!

I wonder if local regulatory agencies will get involved. Seems that there's an untapped source for taxing 'mini utility companies'. Not for revenue (of course) but to ensure that the grid is up to snuff for everyone.
