No, you are wrong because he's posting about the global climate.

Do you get it??

P.S. What is Phd? Certainly, not a PhD. Look it up.

Pfft!

Got science? I guess you have none.

That explains why you don't understand scientiific discourse.

You be another one of those "the Heat plays in Miami" guys. I know Fox would have done the scientists stuck in ice story to death so that's why it is mentioned here every second post.
Yet it still can't get through that filter in the brain that global warming = climate change.
Climate change doesn't just mean the summers are hotter, it also means too much rain, not enough rain, too much snow, no snow, stronger hurricanes etc etc etc. It's all of the above, yet post after post we get moronic statements how cold it is outside today in your locale. Nothing about that will change, as long as the average temps on the planet keep rising expect more extreme weather no matter what part of the world you live in.

"scientific undisputed fact"?
Where?
Let me repeat: "The reason is because the earth makes it's own adjustments inspite of man-made activity.

If there was this massive amount of CO2 then plants would flourish increasing greenery that would cool the planet. Or CO2 would create cloud cover that would cool the earth. Or volcanic activity puts ash in the atmosphere that cools the earth.
The earth is 2/3 water so any evaporation would create more water distributions that might even cool desert areas.
This is all 5th grade science.
You global warmers, climate changers are all sqealing about something that you have no control over but what to control mankind thru. It's that simple.

Are you smarter than a 5th grader? "
Apparently not.

Oh I forgot to mention, the other gem of wisdom from you Fox viewers. Yeah it's all about the grants, a scam to skim taxpayers money. I wonder if you say the same about cancer research or finding a cure for the common cold. How come its only the climate guys running a scam, I have never figured that one out.

I think that statement says more about you with that gem of wisdom.
You might just google effects of climate change and see what it brings.

Like this lil snippet: " As the climate changes, extreme weather events like heat waves, droughts, heavy rain and snow, storms and floods are becoming more frequent or more intense. Southern and central Europe have seen more frequent heat waves, forest fires and droughts. Rainfall patterns are also changing. In Europe the Mediterranean area is becoming drier, making it even more vulnerable to drought and wildfires. Northern Europe, meanwhile, is getting significantly wetter, and winter floods could become common. Climate change is expected to cause significant changes in the quality and availability of water resources."

There are gazillions more that say the same thing, maybe the Fox news one about it being just weather is the one to go for. After all they are well known for their impeccable research into stories they just lean across the desk and ask some dimwit presenters opinion and then it becomes fact! I'd go with that one, and ignore the others because remember a changing climate is a liberal idea.

So... by that argument, if we can demonstrate abuse of the peer review process in medical studies that translates into global warming, right?

Warmists are such phonies.

Oh how right you are. Lets not forget the FDA that "decides" what drugs are and are not effective. Must be the power of pharmecutical companies, eh? Drug lobbyists and such.
There are cancer treatment centers that are not FDA approved and yet show recoveries.
Or heart disease and the clinics that have reversed heart disease and shun the invasive heart surgery. Another very profitable endeavor of heart surgeons.
How about government backed Goodwill? A non-profit that gives nothing to the poor from it's coffers, gets free donations to sell in its stores at 100% profit?
We can do this all day if you'd like.
Science has become an industry just like colleges. The pressure to be published and garner funds has caused both to suffer because the yearning for truth is outweighed by the all mighty dollar.
There are few scientists that just want the truth and they rarely get the spotlight.

Remember to keep the sun out of this, K? It has absolutly NOOOOOOOO affect on the climate of earth. Here, because your likely rolling your ignorant eyes: http://iceagenow.info/2013/08/prepare-decades... (one of many articles saying the same thing)
Next, let's also forget about volcanic activities because that too has NOOOOOOOO affect on climate. http://www.global-climate-change.org.uk/2-6-3...
Afterall, what is science for?

[QUOTE who="hay, now"]Global warming cancels 1/3 of Cleveland air traffic today.
12 inches of global warming snowfall on its way to the northeast.[/QUOTE]

AGW enhanced Siberian warm fronts are pushing hard into the NP region, warming it exceedingly. Furthermore, the warm fronts are pushing Arctic cold to the south, causing much cold, outside of the Arctic.

I also note the fast AGW enhanced jet stream. While planes at the airports, wait out the weather, other planes that are above the weather, in the jet stream, sizzle over New York at 720+mph. In essence, armadas of airplanes advantageously surf the jet stream at 720-760mph. In one region(I say region instead of place because the plane was too fast to be in one place), a 747 was surfing on the jet stream at 807mph, romping through the sky non-stop from LA to England. The jet stream was so good, the pilot followed the jet stream, altho the plane, at some point, would have to begin moving to the north to get to England. Another 747 was shooting along at 799mph, many scores of miles behind the lead plane. & dozens of miles behind that plane, was a tri-jet plane also moving fast. All these planes were sizzling by other planes, moving in slightly different directions, but getting boosts from the jet stream at 700+mph.

These highest speeds I've noted, probably aren't unrelated to the AGW enhanced weather systems on the ground. Maybe, I'll go look again.
