This is a perfect example of what the previous post was about, yet day in day out posts keep appearing proving the profile about deniers is so accurate, it's scary!
"The rallying cry of the denialists óďItís really cold outside, so global warming must be a crock!Ēó can be taken seriously only by those with a toddlerís limited conception of time and space. They forget that itís winter, and apparently they donít quite grasp that even when itís cold in one part of the world, it can be hot in another."
well no sh!t if it's winter here it's gotta be summer somewhere!

And they are going to listen to anyone who claims that, not matter how ludicrous or unscientific. The selection of speakers speak louder than the speakers themselves.

P.S there already IS a world government. 85 people, meeting in switzerland have about half the world assets and are 'de facto' owners of the world. They decide who works, who is elected and what distorted stupidities Faux News is going to print.

The Oceans Warmed up Sharply in 2013: We're Going to Need a Bigger Graph
Posted on 31 January 2014 by Rob Painting

Because the oceans cover some 71% of the Earth's surface and are capable of retaining heat around a thousand times that of the atmosphere, the oceans are where most of the energy from global warming is going - 93.4% over recent decades. So greenhouse gases emitted by human industrial activity not only cause more heat to become trapped in the atmosphere, they also cause more of the sun's energy to accumulate in the oceans.

Long-term the oceans have been gaining heat at a rate equivalent to about 2 Hiroshima bombs per second, although this has increased over the last 16 or so years to around 4 per second. In 2013 ocean warming rapidly escalated, rising to a rate in excess of 12 Hiroshima bombs per second - over three times the recent trend. This doesn't necessarily mean we are entering a period of greatly accelerated ocean warming, as there is substantial year-to-year variation in heat uptake by the oceans. It does, however, once again dispel the persistent myth of a pause in global warming, because the Earth has actually continued to warm faster in the last 16 years than it did in the preceding 16 years.

But that isn't what causes cold in Ilinois.........
AGW enhanced warm fronts push hard into the high Arctic NP, with temperatures that have been over temperature for 140 days. A few days ago, while International Falls, Minnesota was -41degF, the high Arctic above the 80th parallel averaged 11defC(20 degF) over its normal. The warm fronts strongly pushed Arctic cold unto Canada & the U.S.

In 2009 Arctic sea ice quantity melted in January with temperatures 14degC over the average, while the warm fronts pushed Arctic cold south AND Maine set its all-time recorded low temperature of -50degF.

Arctic sea ice extent, 13,511,482 km2(January 28, 2014), the day's loss, Maryland-sized, due to wide spread AGW enhanced Arctic warming & sweeping Arctic cold southward. Warm fronts push into the high Arctic, average temperature above the 80th parallel to -17degC., 12degC(22degF) over average, its highest for the last month, which has been well over average, anyhow. The warm fronts flush much Arctic cold south, MAGADAN, RUSSIA, at -41degC(-42degF) & to the U.S.
