Don't want the goalposts moved later.
As I said, if you would pay attention, give a valid, verifiable argument against AGW. Just show that any other factor 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.

Do you understand now?

No people laugh at you Spaceballs.People laugh at all you global warming nut cases.If I was one of you,especially after the recent expedition,I wouldn't touch the GW subject.I would be com[pletely embarrassed and humiliated.For supposedly intelligent people,you all look like jack asses.Total waste of time and money.

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?

This is an intellectual exercise, not a boxing match. No need for you to duck and feint.

I asked you for your evidence. What I use is my argument. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to produce evidence that Man is not causing the warming, that it can be attributed to something else.

If you are going to argue that there is no warming, you have lost before you started.

I've asked for clarification, you've dodged.

You guys keep making these statements without a shred of evidence to back it up and it's like you ignore all posts gone before. Come in here cold and just say what you think NOT what you know to be true. First of all NO scientist declares warming is over because you have 10ft of snow in your backyard, that doesn't cut it, only with the ignorant ill informed whose world finishes at a arm's length.

Another climate denier exposed: These so called scientific research institutes set up by oil companies to masqurade as climate research. They do NO research what so ever, just keep pumping out press releases to news outlets in hope some lazy reporter who does not check their credentials publishes their lies.
Now some credible news outlets are refusing to publish any more of this crap unless it can be proven to be peer reviewed scientific research not hearsay passed on from Donald Trump & this goes on ALL THE DAMN TIME. How easily you deniers are hoodwinked.

" McLean’s latest paper, which he and de Freitas published in an open-access Journal of Scientific Research Publishing, a vanity publisher whose journals have reportedly re-published papers from reputable scientific journals without notification or permission of the author and listing academics on its editorial boards without their knowledge or permission."

"Clearly McLean has no standing or expertise in the field of climate science. So why does he persist in publishing opinion pieces as an “expert” on climate change? His affiliation with the International Climate Science Coalition holds the key to this question
Despite its name, the ICSC does not conduct scientific research. It is funded by the Heartland Institute, an American right-wing think tank historically bankrolled by Exxon to promote climate denial. Perhaps not surprisingly, the ICSC’s primary agenda includes discrediting authoritative science on climate change, opposing regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and “educating” the public on the “dangerous impacts” involved in trying to replace fossil fuels with cleaner energy sources such as wind and solar power."

Also might ask the West Virginians what they think of the coal industry at the moment. We see all the posts about bald eagles missing everything else to exclusively run into wind turbines but nothing about drinking water.
