"No people laugh at you Spaceballs."

I'm sure he's glad to hear that.

People who don't use proper punctuation and grammar are sure to be misunderstood as well as show their ignorance. That is why I sometimes have to comment on it, not because I think I'm superior (though I am, compared to most deniers here).

For instance, "Let's eat Mom," as opposed to "Let's eat, Mom".

Quite a difference in meaning, don't you think?

You should probably go back to school.

Either answer or shut up.
I can't type any slower so that you might understand.

If you can pay attention, give a valid, verifiable argument against AGW. Just show that any other factor is causing the warming.

Is this beyond your mental capacity, or might it be a paucity of evidence?

The following will impact your quality of life long before the oceans rising 2 inches.
----------
But Muslims are the first group to come as immigrants to the West determined to replace Western government and social structures with Islamic ones. Millions of Muslims come to Western countries with a ready-made model of society and government (sharia) which they believe to be superior to what we have here, and they work to institute it.

And again you dodge my questions and pretend you're having an honest debate.

Let's try again... what temperature data set are you using? Raw or homogenized? If homogenized, which one, which version?

As usual always a question with a question. Why can't you deniers just blow us away with hard facts instead of trash talk. The denier organisations set up by oil companies is FACT like you they are doing their bit for humanity or is it greed. Google it yourself or has your google got the blocking filter for common sense.

Don't worry- Co2 concentration would have to be 50 times what it is today to cause health problems.
Basic Information about Concentrations of CO2 in Air
* 1,000,000 ppm of a gas = 100 % concentration of the gas, and 10,000 ppm of a gas in air = a 1% concentration.
* At 1% concentration of carbon dioxide CO2 (10,000 parts per million or ppm) and under continuous exposure at that level, such as in an auditorium filled with occupants and poor fresh air ventilation, some occupants are likely to feel drowsy.
* The concentration of carbon dioxide must be over about 2%(20,000 ppm) before most people are aware of its presence unless the odor of an associated material (auto exhaust or fermenting yeast, for instance) is present at lower concentrations.
* Above 2%, carbon dioxide may cause a feeling of heaviness in the chest and/or more frequent and deeper respirations.
* If exposure continues at that level for several hours, minimal "acidosis" (an acid condition of the blood) may occur but more frequently is absent.

You are a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig, look for ways to be such, AND worst, you seem to be a euro or transplanted euro who forgets its own ancestors' sins.

It's obvious you have run out of ideas and are grabbing at straws. But, go ahead. Use any data set you need to to prove your point. Let's see what you got.

Will it be pasted from WUWT? Will Lindzen save your ass? Or will Al Gore cast a spell with the help of the Devil?

I begin to comprehend the sins of my fathers, though I don't know if any did, I'm sure that some of them probably killed native Americans.

I know that at least one married a Choctaw woman, so I am a descendent of Native Americans.

In the great wash of history, there is each death, and there are the deaths of nations. This is the destiny that life has granted us. I forgive those who have trespassed against me as I would wish that they would also forgive me.

What's obvious is that you refuse to address any guidelines for a debate.... oh.. those inconvenient truths.

I gave you complete freedom. You can't debate because you have no argument.

The guidelines are simple. Show any evidence that AGW is not happening.

But you can't. You have nothing.
