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

So lets see... you're admitting many see global warming as a religion?

Wow... that's quite an admission.

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

Please... don't continue. You make such a fool of yourself, and apparently haven't the slightest idea of the disservice you do yourself.

OTOH... you are good for a laugh.

Japan slashes greenhouse-gas reduction goal on nuclear shutdown
WARSAW/TOKYO, Nov 15 (Reuters)- Japan on Friday drastically weakened its greenhouse-gas reduction target, bowing to the impact of a shuttered nuclear power industry but drawing international criticism at U.N. climate change talks....

European Programs to Carbon [Dioxide] Emissions Fail
...
In Germany, non-hydro renewable consumption makes up 8.3 percent of total primary energy consumption[iii], but over 70 percent of this energy is replacing the decline in nuclear production resulting from a government policy to prematurely retire its nuclear power plants due to the Fukushima accident related to a disastrous tidal wave in Japan. German nuclear consumption has fallen by 16.3 million metric tons oil equivalent from its peak in 2001, while non-hydro renewables have increased by 22.4 million metric tons of oil equivalent. While the remaining amount of renewable energy may have offset coal and natural gas consumption, it did nothing to offset global consumption of coal and natural gas, which has increased.

Despite German consumers paying the highest electricity prices in Europe....

...Demand in the developing countries will probably equal that of the developed countries of the OECD by 2019 and rise thereafter. Rising transport capacities in the developing countries is a major factor.

The report says that passenger cars in China will increase from 43 per 1,000 population to 320 between 2010-35 and the total number of cars will increase by 380 million units. Other regions will experience growth but not as much, and the global base of commercial vehicles would pass the 500 million mark.

The atmosphere isn't a "CO2 oven" and our kids can look after themselves. We teach them real science needs experimental tests when it advocates or produces technology and policies. We don't use pills untested by the FDA and we don't buy hoax climate change mitigation that's never been tried or tested.

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.

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.

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.

Like I said, the best(only?) argument you have is Al Gore.
