“Ah,” say the believers,“but there is a consensus of scientists and learned societies.” That is the argumentum ad verecundiam, the reputation or appeal-to-authority fallacy. Merely because a group has a reputation, it may not deserve it; even if it deserves it, it may not be acting in accordance with it; and, even if it is, it may be wrong.
And you appear to be just another sheep.
You turn out to be WRONG.

"The rate of global warming is accelerating. Therefore it is caused by us." That is the fallacy of ignoratio elenchi, the red-herring fallacy. Even if global warming were accelerating, that would tell us nothing about whether we were to blame. The IPCC twice uses this fallacious argument in its 2007 Fourth Assessment Report. Even if its argument were not illogical, the warming rate is not increasing. The notion that it is accelerating was based on a statistical abuse that the IPCC has refused to correct.
Where do you get this stuff? The IPCC simply organizes the science community findings. But your probably would rather get your information from Inholfe, Anthony Watts or some other RW fringe denier. BTW, a few years is not enough to dispell global warming anyhow. It is probable with the emerging El Nino that we will see another upward spike in temperatures. Also the ocean is an enormous heat sink dwarfing the heat content of the atmosphere. Since the ocean is warming, as supported in the rising sea levels, it is obvious that the Earth is gaining heat. Sooner of later this will be evident as the ocean gives back some of the heat to the atmosphere. The emerging El Nino is one way this will become evident.

It is obvious that it is yours that is illogical.

with a track record like these clowns....are they surprised people doubt their bogus claims?
I'd say this is typical post from a flat earther, for one no journalist dared to put his/her name to the article. But reading is a dead give away, taxes and freedoms sprinkled all the way through. Which are the hallmarks of tea bagger thinking, so this article was cut n pasted from some rw blog or letter to the ed. It obviously was a slow news day and they filled a space with crap, lazy journalism. It sure as hell is no Watergate, but on par with a typical fox story on Benghazi where all the investigative journalism is done in their mind totally devoid of fact..

Here is an article that has names on it,
From New Scientist magazine:
"Wild weather is coming in 2014, with floods, storms and droughts expected around the Pacific, but little is being done to protect the people on the front line

THE weather is preparing to go wild, and will wreak havoc and death around the globe later this year. An El Niño, a splurge of warm water in the Pacific Ocean, is coming. It will unleash floods in the Americas, while South-East Asia and Australia face drought. Yet little is being done to address these consequences.

"The tropical climate system is primed for a big El Niño," says Axel Timmermann of the University of Hawaii in Honolulu (see diagram).

An El Niño begins when warm water near Indonesia spreads eastwards and rises to the surface of the Pacific. The warm water carries rain with it, so El Niño takes rain from Asia and Australia and dumps it on the Americas (see "Rising waters").

The effects can be deadly. A big El Niño in 1997-98 killed 20,000 people and caused almost $97 billion of damage."

How come when me and my bff go to the beach, I can't tell that the ocean is higher? It just goes in and out. Then in and out again. Over and over again.

Looks like it did when I was a kid.

I heard in school that the ocean level is higher, but I can't see it.

Any of you go to the beach? What's going on?

Aww what we do without the commies, poor ole Fox would have no talking points. Considering its a network marketed purely to appeal to the uninformed ignorant it has a niche market.
You know those same people who post in here never calling the President by his title but by every other racial undertone name they can think of.

Piss off troll boy.

For all the claims of "crisis" by you and your ilk, I've yet to see you hold any warmist accountable.

Is it a crisis or not?

Or is it only a crisis for some, but not for others?

A crisis of convenience?

Ooooo... that's ever so scary.

But you insist on prattling on about "science" -- never mind the reality that those claiming a crisis don't act like it is one.

Enjoy your double standards, hypocrite.

And some day you might wise up! Not one of you have ever posted anything of credibility that even approaches a challenge to the brain cells. It's all about name calling and stone throwing, neither of which challenges the science. Do some homework and show us something where science actually challenges science instead of opinionated BS.

Here is what your President says about it:
http://nypost.com/2014/05/07/climate-change-a...

Now post a quick response telling us how he and all his advisors know nothing and they should listen to the flat earther's for the real story.
