Has global warming stopped?

The problem being, the verses you sing can't be proven.
Or can they? I suppose you can prove "it's all those things, and more"?
Sorry, chump, the facts are against you.
Wrong. Sure they not only can, they have been proven. But you do have to know how to read.

Hardly.
From the abstract.

". Surface warming was much more in evidence during the 1976–1998 positive phase of the PDO, suggesting that natural decadal variability modulates the rate of change of global surface temperatures while sea-level rise is more relentless. Global warming has not stopped; it is merely manifested in different ways."

Moving the goal posts. We were told by this very scientist that our temperatures would warm up. They're not. Sea level rise is not 'relentless'. Went up with the temps, but has flattened out with the temps as well.

A lie, of course.

But they have! Just not evident in the atmosphere, but definitely in the ocean. It is not the temperature, it is the heat. There is little doubt that the Earth is gaining heat. CO2 is a GHG. Burning fossil fuels increases the CO2 in the atmosphere trapping more heat. Sea levels are rising. Ice is melting. How bad is this? We need to study and get a handle on it before possible undesireable consequences.

You need to read. The right stuff. Everything but greenhouse gases has been discounted as the primary cause of the present warming.

The facts are against you.

The scientific consensus is against you.

The truth eludes you.

38* here in southern NM. Predicting below freezing temps at night for the next several days. Had snow and freezing temps in November. Summer wasn't as hot. First 100* day not until mid June. Very few 100* days as opposed to what we've experienced in the last 25 years.

GW study suggests alarming effects.
This once slow-moving threat, global warming may result In fewer and less intense hurricanes. The results could lead to a devastating decimation of annual rainfall totals in some areas.

Happy Holydays,
Looking forward to a white Christmas in NM this year.

If the state is fortunate enough to not suffer any loss of life due it exposure or weather related road fatalities than we can safely say that this unusually cold weather is the result of natural variability.

On the other hand... if there is an unfortunate loss of life during this period it is with a high degree of confidence that we can conclude these souls are direct victims of Anthropogenic Carbon Dioxide Driven Catastrophic Global Climate Disruption.

Marry Christmas,

Got a son living north of Santa Fe. Was supposed to get to 34* but so far the high is 29* with snow. He' manning a Christmas tree lot today for fundraising. It's cold.

Merry Christmas to you too.

ROTFLMAO if there's lots of hurricanes it's caused by global warming, if there's only a few hurricanes, it's caused by global warming.

Maybe cooling's our best bet! Not.

Hope he sells out!

Yes, Santa Fe is a nice town. Got one of my favorite T shirts there:
"Fighting Terrorism since 1492".
It's getting a little faded so I think it's time I pick up a new one.

P.S.
In an effort to stay on topic:
CO2 caused the temperature here to reach a blistering high of 1 degree F.

Stay warm my friends
