More of your circular reasoning. Since some obscure scientific ideas have missed, it is evidence that climate science is wrong. LOL
BTW, there is no doubt that the Earth has warmed. That CO2 is a GHG. That burning fossil fuels increases the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. Show that any of those are incorrect. Duh.
"Duh"... should be your middle name.

See these science deniers are sans science but full of hatred for others. All one has to do is read their posts.

NOW.. A drought is causing an extreme emergency in northeast Haiti, wiping out sorely needed crops and livestock.

Pierre Gary Mathieu of the government's National Coordination of Food Security told The Associated Press that the eight-month-long drought in the region has caused the loss of two harvest seasons. It will take the area six months to recover.

"That's a major problem," Mathieu said.

The hardship is especially evident in some schools where there's food for students but no water to cook. Other schools have neither food nor water, Mathieu said.

The usually arid area has seen some rain lately but not enough to replenish crops.

Government employees and aid workers plan to distribute seeds to farmers and food to others. Officials are due to meet this Thursday with international humanitarian workers to figure out how to coordinate a response, Mathieu said.

The Famine Early Warning Systems Network, or FEWS NET, a U.S.-government financed program that tracks weather patterns, agricultural production and food prices in an effort to offset famine, describes worrisome conditions for Haiti's northeast.

Until last November, rainfall was evenly distributed in most of the country's crop-producing areas during production cycles. But a second rainy season that normally begins in August didn't begin until two to three weeks later, and northeastern Haiti received very little of that rainfall.

"People need jobs immediately but they also need food," Mathieu said.

The drought has also extended to other parts of the north, especially along the northwestern peninsula, FEWS NET reports. Farmers have had to travel farther to find drinking water.

The United Nations' World Food Program will send food rations this week for up to 120,000 people in the northwest, WFP spokesman Alejandro Lopez-Chicheri said. The kits consist of rice, beans and cooking oil.

The U.S. often used food as a method to get countries to act in line with U.S. interests. "nanoanally" doesn't want to do that now, because "nanoanally' lost its interest in being human.

Often explained, & seldom understood by poorly science educated toxic topix AGW deniers.

AGW enhanced warm fronts have been forced into millions of square kilometers around the North Pole. Not one day of average temperature over those millions of square kilometers has been as low as normal temperatures for 4+months, & have been as high as 16degC(29degF) OVER normal temperatures. So much heat & energy is in the NP, that Arctic cold is driven very hard to the south. Without the time to disperse & warm, the Arctic cold(initially warmer than normal) blasts are setting record cold & snows in Canada & the U.S.

Sometimes, Arctic cold is driven even further south, to Mexico, Central America, southern China, India, Iran, Iraq, & Northern Africa, also setting record low temperatures.

2010 Russian devastating summer heat & the massive floods of Pakistan are connected due to the jet stream. Further connections of present cold & snow in central & eastern U.S., are are partially explained by the Polar Vortex jet stream, linking to over-warm AGW enhanced temperatures over millions of square kilometers around the North Pole. A more complete understanding is given, due to AGW enhanced warm fronts that have been forced into millions of square kilometers around the North Pole. Not one day of average temperature over those millions of square kilometers has been as low as normal temperatures for 4+months, & have been as high as 16degC(29degF) OVER normal temperatures. So much heat & energy are in the NP region, that the AGW enhanced warm fronts have forced cold Arctic air, south to Canada & the U.S. over many months & often, causing populated regions lots snowy & cold weather. The AGW enhanced warm fronts have so rapidly pushed Arctic cold to the south, that the warmer than normal cold never has time to disperse, & record Canadian & U.S. cold & snows have been on a conveyor belt, transferring from the Arctic.

Yes, as Russian hot & damaging temperatures have been connected via the jet stream to Pakistani floods, cold & snowy Canadian & U.S. weather is connected to very warm AGW enhanced Arctic NP temperatures, also by the jet stream.

Just a lot of he said, she said. Where is the solid science that disproves global warming? BTW, the so called hockey stick has been validated many times.

The Earth is warming. CO2 is a greenhouse gas. Burning fossil fuels increases the CO2 in the atmosphere. Show that any of that is wrong, then you might have some traction.

You're determined to ignore inconvenient truths of Mann's hockey stick.

Mann and the Oxburgh Panel

The Mann libel case has been attracting increasing commentary, including from people outside the climate community. Integral to Mann’s litigation are representations that he was “investigated” by 6-9 investigations, all of which supposedly gave him “exonerations” on wide-ranging counts, including “scientific misconduct”,“fraud”,“academic fraud”,“data falsification”,“statistical manipulation”,“manipulation of data” and even supposed findings that his work was “properly conducted an fairly presented”. Mann also represented that these investigations were widely covered in international and national media and thus known to Steyn and the other defendants.

In today’s post, I’ll look closely at the Oxburgh panel, one of the investigations cited in Mann’s pleadings. However, contrary to the claims in Mann’s litigation, not only did the Oxburgh panel not exonerate Mann, at their press conference, Oxburgh panelist David Hand, then President of the Royal Statistical Society, made very disparaging and critical comments about Mann’s work, describing it as based on “inappropriate” statistics that led to “exaggerated” results. These comments were widely reported in international media, later covered in a CEI article that, in turn, was reported by National Review. Moreover, information obtained from FOI in the UK a couple of years ago shows that Mann objected vehemently to criticism from Oxburgh panelist, which he characterized as a “rogue opinion” and unsuccessfully sought a public apology.

Mann’s claim that the Oxburgh panel “exonerated” Mann on counts ranging from scientific misconduct to statistical manipulation to proper conduct and fair presentation of results has no more validity than his claim to have been awarded a Nobel prize for his supposedly seminal work “document[ing] the steady rise in surface temperatures during the 20th Century and the steep increase in measured temperatures since the 1950s.”
