Stop drinking the Kool-Aid.
What's next for you, denying the Holocaust?

First hand knowledge always trumps? I walked the beach in Bay St. Louis, MS, at Christmas in 2010 and saw plenty of oil there. My cousin In Pensacola has found many tarballs on the beach there.

Here is an excerpt from BP's website on the spill:

"At its peak, four bird rehabilitation centres, three bird stabilization centres and seven marine mammal and sea turtle rehabilitation centres were opened in strategic locations along the coast, supported by dozens of response teams and hundreds of trained wildlife rescue and rehabilitation professionals.

Between April 2010 and 2011, the US Fish and Wildlife Service reported 2,303 birds dead and visibly oiled, 18 turtles dead and visibly oiled, and 10 marine mammals dead and visibly oiled.

As part of the response, 2,086 birds, 456 sea turtles, and two marine mammals, all of which were visibly oiled, were rescued and cared for, and in most cases, released."

You are a LIAR. AGAIN!

We all know who is drinking the kool aid and it's not us. "Gulf oil spill no impact" , that would be a typical troll statement right there. Your google must have filters built in just like your brain. Like anyone who posts on here using words such as "commie" or "socialists" we all know the post has no substance.

You mean like this one ? Are you pinning your hopes on that little spike in the ice for 2013 and ignore the liner downward slide for the past 30 yrs. It's still a lot less than what was around in the 70's so where did all that ice go or is it in your back yard now as snow ?

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.
And... how do you consider AGW disproven?

Don't want the goalposts moved later.

Meanwhile, while the US experienced the big freeze Australia is in for a record run of 100+F days for virtually the whole continent. Something not experienced for at least a 100 years or more along with all the wildfires that may come with it. But still each month we post these abnormalities with the weather from around the globe the deniers keep insisting that its all normal.

So touched toxic topix AGW deniers, still working the cyclical angle, predict Earth temperatures will be back to the early 20th century next year & an ice age begins a year later.

They laughed at the Wright brothers, too.

That's the price we pay for being highly intelligent, sentient, ahead-of-our-times types.

We'll be laughing last, amid our tears for civilization.

It is called GLOBAL warming, not the USA warming. Besides what would call going our way "Rome Burning" or "Rome freezing" it is all extreme weather and that is the climate change in a nutshell. It's about EXTREME weather, the fact that we can cite examples of it week in , week out is even more distressing because that means it is happening right now. It just depends how bad you want it to get.

If our major exhaust gas was IR transparent, they would blame our industrial emissions for changing the atmosphere, diluting the greenhouse effect and causing global climate change. That's the benefit of an untested theory, you may suggest any causality or cure you wish without fear the experimental evidence disproves your scheme.

Hmmm.... which temperature data set do you use for 'warming'? Raw, or homogenized?
