Interesting that their warmest temperature "paused" 36 years ago.

You really are clueless aren't you? These red herrings (strawmen) are bogus and just show that you don't know climate (metadata about weather) from weather (current conditions)
werent many hurricanes this year! So who is really the clueless one here? I say it's you!

Stupidity. The oscillations between extreme heat and extreme cold are associated and probably partially 'caused' by AGW. This particular WEATHER even in 'caused' by a southward driving cold air mass.

When we learned About AGW and confirmed the problem. But you just said 'FTW?'.

Oh so weather is only local now, did you bother to look what is happening on the other side of the globe. One lame year hurricane season in the gulf means someone else is getting more than their fair share. Maybe Asia doesn't count in your filtered view of the world.

oh but 'rite', he seems to never get tired of his own insanity. 10-16 or more years of nothing and he is still so far off the deep end, even natural cold weather events can't snap his brain cell into reality.

look up the historically on cyclones and typhoons, son.
Get back to me when you make a direct connection to man made co2 and how the 2013 typhoon season was unique and different from years past.
I bet you self serving alarmists were even praying for a higher death toll to perpetrate your ridiculous hoax!
Shame on you all!!!

don't worry 'rite', it soon may be too cold to use such devices. I found piles of feathers under some of the government approved 'green' machines. president tryvon said it was ok to kill eagles with green machines so I tied them to my foot so I could get magical milage like litesong. I have been featherfooting everywere. what a mess. can't go anywhere without those government approved fresh killed eagle feathers floating everywhere and littering the landscape. no matter how much I featherfoot, the machine runs the same way it ever did. was I lied to? was it all a hoax? were they fudging the numbers? was in fact, it all made up to fool people and make money off the hysteria? if only litesong wasn't such an egotistical lying s.o.b., but we can't blame him. with hardly any schooling, and no social life what so ever we are lucky he has not turned into a mass murderer.

+++++++GOD NOW APPROVES OF SAME-SEX-MARRIAGE!!!+++++++ God has changed His mind regarding Homosexuality!. God can change His mind on matters if He wants to, there are instances in the Bible where God does just that!. This time is no different. God has certainly been answering the big Gays prayers lately!, with their recent Supreme Court victories and all. God wouldn't answer me, a Straight guy!. You know, I once asked God for a wife, 5 months later, He gave me a wh**e!. I do admit, I did used to blaspheme God a couple years on down before this, but I stopped this. I figured this was the reason God raped me. If God didn't want to give me a wife, He sure as Hell didn't have to give me that rotten wh**e!!!. Because God bestowed this evil upon me, my blaspheming Him returned with a vengence!!!. I lay it on old God now and I don't care if I do go burn forever, HAHAHAHAHA!!!. I blaspheme God real good now. I do it more then I ever did and I myself, is a might proud of that fact, HAHAHAHAHA!!!...GIVE ME ANOTHER WH**E GOD!!!!!!!!!.

Don't you get it?

When extreme weather events occur, warmists flip through their rolodex to find a corresponding "study" to say, "Aha! See this is science!"

way too funny 'mothra', but you are confusing science with bullsht. sane people know the weather is an everyday, day after day, fact of life. if it were not for changes in the weather, man would not have nothing to talk about. give someone twenty, thirty or more years of government grants of taxpayers money for free, and we have a problem. the gravytrain never stops, it just speeds up. the hysteria must continue. these people are parasites, this is not science, this is junk science at its best. what a phony bunch of you know whats.
