Just brian's eight year old's interpretation of it.
if hurricanes increase in numbers....proof of agw.
if hurricanes decrease in numbers.....proof of agw.
if hurricanes remain about average.....proof of agw.

only an irrational faith based believer in agw wouldn't question this pseudoscience.

i guess the science is settled IF ANY possible change is proof of your misguided claims, huh?

if you "fix" the science to where nothing can happen that will prove your claim false.....how do you know you're ever correct?

even an eighth grade student should/could ask these questions. problem with your crowd.....nobody ever offers a response.

What the models said:

"there has been a growing number of studies using results from medium and high resolution global climate models. The results from these studies indicate a consistent signal of fewer tropical cyclones globally in a warmer climate (Knutson et al 2006)"

What the observations said:

"New paper finds significant decreasing trend of Australian tropical cyclones."

don't do that....
if you tell a climate alarmist that you're jewish....you'll only create more anti semites.
these alarmist ideologues are normal people.
if you don't bow to their misguided beliefs they will scorn, hate, and ridicule all you are.
they are bigots, racists, and hypocrites to the core!!

Good post. What kind of weather could occur in 2014-2015 that would cause them to seriously reconsider their hypothesis?

The answer is a long term downward trend in global temperatures. This has not happened. Weather is not climate.

The Earth is warming. CO2 is a GHG. Burning fossil fuels increased the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. What don't you understand?

We must stop the climate calamity.

Except for today. It's actually very nice today through most of the world. Good average temps. Some storms but nothing too bad. Ocean water level isn't too bad. Yesterday as well. Tomorrow looks good!

Voices from the Coalfields:

From Kingsport, TN:

“You pricks will be wanting the miner to go back underground when all that cheap natural gas skyrockets and your welfare won't cover the light bill...”

From Johnson City, TN:(In response to a vicious verbal attack on the intelligence and work ethic of coal miners by an environmentalist fanatic)

“My father was a coal miner who worked underground for years and supported his family from this job. My father was very educated and very athletic and was offered a scholarship to college but turned it down to marry my mother and start a family. While my father was a miner he was elected president of the united mine workers of America. Everyone said he was very smart and knew the laws and also he would stand up for the rights of the miners. I am very proud of my father and have much respect for him. After going down in a mine to see what my father did everyday made me respect and honor him more. That is an extremely hard job and until we have worked underground all bent over and crawling on your knees don't disgrace or insult miners. The comment about miners being to dumb to go to college is bullcrap. It seems to me that you are the dumbbutt. Being a miner is a real job and probably more real than anything you have ever done or will ever do in your lifetime. Sorry but your ignorance really shines through your comments!!!”

For some reason that doesn't surprise me. California is the only state in the Union where public schools teach boys how to insert a tampon.

<quoted text>What's your definition of (climate).
Wiki gives a pretty good one.
"Climate is a measure of the average pattern of variation in temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, precipitation, atmospheric particle count and other meteorological variables in a given region over long periods of time. Climate is different from weather, in that weather only describes the short-term conditions of these variables in a given region."
