Talk about babbling...you're a master of it.

If you don't accept AGW, why don't you bring something to the table that disproves it? Do you have a graph that is the opposite of Mann's? Can you offer any evidence that this warming is caused by something other than mankind's actions?

But I'm betting you'll keep on bitching, complaining, moaning, groaning, carping, griping, fussing, and denying for as long as you grace us with your trolling.

Why? Because you have nothing.

Idiot liberals spewing diarrea out of their mouths.
The active volcanos on this earth produce more
Co2 than man. You have lost the argument, now
You might as well be touting the existence of
Bigfoot. You are the crazy uncle in the corner
Nobody pays attention to.

Yet another idiot posting LIES he has either heard from Rush or one of his buddies like Beck or Hannity. None of which have a clue other than to ability to entertain the ignorant.
Volcanoes only produce 1%, yes you heard that right 1% of CO2 compared to what humans produce a year. Google it and check for yourself instead of posting BS on here, then go look for bigfoot.

According to 'Nature' cold ocean water is causing "hiatus":

"A new study adds to mounting evidence that cooling in the tropical Pacific Ocean is the cause of the global warming hiatus, a slow-down in the rise of average temperatures that began around 1998.

The eastern equatorial Pacific is well known to have an outsize influence on global weather. Years-long ocean trends such as El Niño and La Niña cause alternate warming and cooling of the sea surface there, with effects on monsoons and temperatures around the world. Now a modelling study by researchers at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California, indicates that a decadal La Niña-like cooling trend affecting as little as 8% of Earth’s surface can explain the slower rise in global temperatures."

...and in other models:

"Water vapour could be behind WARMING SLOWDOWN
The equatorial Pacific cooling turns out to be strong enough to offset the general rise in temperature induced by anthropogenic greenhouse gases,” says Shang-Ping Xie, a climate modeller at Scripps and co-author of the study, which is published today in Nature1."

So you're saying Mann's hockey stick is "the" standard that proves global warming?

No? Then what is? or what combination do you consider proof?

And also, how do you consider AGW disproven?

I've seen the goal posts moved so often, I'd like to eliminate the "yeah but's in advance.

Still... it's gonna be tough to debate a zealot. But could be fun.

Trying to make some perversion of what I write? No, Mann's graph is only one of several. Take your pick. They all show basically the same thing.

I asked if you had a temperature chart that shows temps leveling off or declining. That would be a contradiction of the others. Of course, it would need to be a graph from a reputable climatologist or university, not one developed by Donald Trump.

Disprove or give a valid, verifiable argument against AGW. Easy. Just show that any other facter is causing the warming. And again, from a reputable source, not Stuart Varney or Shawn Hannity.

And I've seen deniers claim warming is from everything from sunspots to the Earth's magnetic reversal. None of these goalposts will stand.

It'll be easy debating a denier because they have no argument.

[QUOTE who="lyin' brian"]CO2 is invisible[/QUOTE]

You think science can't detect CO2 & determine its effects, then?

I don't care what your answer is because "lyin' brian" has errors of 1million TIMES, 1000TIMES, 3000TIMES, 73 million TIMES, & 2.5trillion TIMES, plus being a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AND alleged & proud threatener.

Glad you like my news. Repeat treats:
However, not quite 99% of the atmosphere has almost no infra-red energy absorbing ability, so you have no scientific reason to state the Earth's atmospheric quantity. That is why "motheaten mothballs" is "motheaten mothballs".
Of those remaining GHGs, phase changing infra-red energy absorbing water vapor has the most effect. However, increasing man-made atmospheric amounts of non-phase changing infra-red energy absorbing CO2, methane, oxides of nitrogen, SF6, etc. control the GHG effect of phase changing infra-red energy absorbing water vapor in the atmosphere.

Sea Ice is a WHOLE lot different than mainland ice which is melting away. Sea ice is seasonal and a lot of it comes from the mainland after melting away. No one declares warming is over because of freaking sea ice formation, only the ignorant.
Like warming you guys grab any spike in the graph that deviates from a downward slide in the ice cover and vice versa with warming. Despite having up and down swings over thousands of years you declare its all over on one spike in any given year. So much for science
Geez. I post several graphs covering an expanse of time and now who is the denier!

That's a really huge lie.
Are you proud of being a LIAR?
I have family all along the Gulf Coast with several in the shrimping industry. They have noticed NO OIL that interefered with the quality of life or industry there!
BP has been up and down the coast bragging about there clean up efforts that no one has even seen because there was no clean up!!!
1st hand knowledge always trumps you lying liberal azzes!
Tourism is up, shrimping is up and even condo building is up on the Gulf Coast.
Stop drinking the Kool-Aid.
