So lets see... you're admitting many see global warming as a religion?
Wow... that's quite an admission.

LOL
Since that is one of the best arguments that you can muster, it is obvious that deniers must see global warming as such.

Global warming is science. The Earth is warming. CO2 is a GHG. Burning fossil fuels increases the CO2 in the atmosphere. Those are facts. Go pray to your denier god.

And why do you keep bringing up Al Gore... and the kvetch when people challenge his hypocrisy?

LOL
It is you and your fellow deniers who bring up Al Gore because you have no other good arguments against the science of global warming.

The science currently states that there is no statistically significant warming being measured. See: NOAA, GISS, HCRUT.

The science also suggests that the estimated global average temperature is rising at an alarming rate. See: NOAA, GISS, HCRUT.

NASA and climate scientists throughout the world have said, however, that the years starting since 1998 have been the hottest in all recorded temperature history.

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'.

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.

And once again, you bring up Al Gore, then obfuscate the simple little fact that he's a global warming hypocrite.

And no... that's not an argument on the "science" of global warming, but you love the mischaracterization to dodge the question once again.

Quit bringing Gore into the conversation, and I'll quit asking you to admit his hypocrisy.

But you can't... and I won't.

Actually, no.

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.

Here we go again...

Another 'short term' analysis, yet those same short term studies are held out by warmists as cherry picking when it suits their arguments.

Geez... for 'settled' science, you'd think there would be some argumentative consistency.

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.

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.

http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/11/16/another...

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.

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.

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.
