So you want to use oil, coal and gas to build and transport windmills, solar panels and electric cars and batteries?
That's dumb. I'm blond and even I know that.
What's your BEST solution?
Well that's what we call "transition" changing from one energy source to another then eventually the clean solution replaces the dirty one. Even a blond coed could understand that and that is why big Al & Obama still have to fly around in those dirty ole jet planes because the hyper-drive star-trek ones haven't been invented yet!

This is a good example of delusional you flat earthers are, you keep asking for proof of global warming and then be so quick to dismiss it when it's presented. Then prove to us there is a God, let alone what form this God takes. If God created the dinosaurs why were they wiped out ? or what about the animal species that man has wiped out. Do you think God intended for man to make other men slaves or have women walk around in a tent so they can't be seen. Do you think God intended to have one man accumulate more resources that would feed a small country while other men starved. I thought the garden of Eden was created so we could survive but you want to sanction it's destruction.
dinosaurs were put on earth, by God, to become fossil fuel in the future, to power our vehicles....just like chickens were put here to provide eggs, meat and feathers. Cows were put on earth to provide milk, meat, leather, same with pigs. the women you refer to are muslims, and I think God might agree that they were a mistake, like tobacco. you must be a liberal, liberals have weird ideas.

Quite a bit. The average warming was 0.13C/decade and AGW has continued unabated by intelligent action or political will.
Note: We are probably headed for an El-Nino next year in which all that warming will show up in the atmosphere (instead of the oceans). Don't cry when it does. It all averages out to a fairly constant slope since the CAUSE is pretty constant.
and get an education. You don't have to embarrass yourself with these posts.
We had EL-Nino in 2005 and 2010, what did that net you ?

So you have these generals and admirals coming out today (not the first time the military has spoken up) saying climate change is a threat to the US.

What say ye now, stupid idiotic lying deniers?

Listen, I don't make up science. I posted from the RS paper.

Go study what anthropogenic climate change is. It's covers man-made CO2 from fossil fuels combustion.

You science deniers demand cessation of science so that humanity will stay ignorant about their own impact on our planet's climate and related consequences..

Women were a mistake? Then why do we like fucking them so much?

And pot was put here to smoke and make prayer rugs with.

Why did Noah have to take all those nasty viruses, bacteria, and fungi on the Ark? Why didn't he leave them to drown? Why couldn't he have saved us some dinosaurs?

Get with the program. It's no longer called climate change. The new adjective is disruption,climate disruption. No one is claiming that climate disruption is not happening just mans involvement

Hey there. They ignore the truth.

Latest: An analysis of historical storm data reveals that the average latitude at which tropical cyclones attain their maximum intensity has undergone a pronounced shift towards the poles over the past three decades.

This is going to be really difficult for them, they had their heart set on Al Queda as the global villain. Now the "call to arms" will be to walk to the store to get the milk. That's a whole lot harder than sending someone else's son or daughter to a foreign land to get their a$$ shot off.

NOTHING you've posted has addressed the hypocrisy of warmists that talk big about a CRISIS but do NOTHING but talk about it.

I'll keep reminding you of this as long it takes for you to understand.

Whack yourself all you like, but please don't tell us about it.

How much has earth warmed over the last 16 years ? Stand or sit any way you like.
Since none of the warmers will answer I will, data from NOAA has the global temp in 1997 at 14.42 deg.C. The average of the 16 years since is 14.47. Even James Hansen would acknowledge 5 one-hundredths of 1 degree over 16 years is insignificant. The anomalies are from a base of 13.9C for those who don't even bother to look at the actual temp record.

1997 0.52°C 4
1998 0.63°C 15
1999 0.46°C 2
2000 0.43°C 1
