weather events will always occur.
climate will always change.
mans emissions are a part of natural emissions.
shyt will always hit the fan....and there is no tax in the solar system that will keep the excrement off your walls.
Read ipcc.ch

then remember climate is a distribution of weather events, and

also remember 400,000 hiroshimas daily constitute the present energy input of the man-made ghg's
.

QED, you FAIL miserably.

"...'let' global warming..."? As if it's subject to your machinations. The only way to mitigate global climatic variation, is to exclude yourself from its influence.

I'm afraid that won't do it. More drastic and permanent measures are required.

They know themselves that they will be ostracized by their own.

Deniers assume that everyone is like them...lie, cheat, steal, kill, to get what you want and advance your side's troops.

These people, who often claim to have so much love and respect for the military, then turn around and accuse them of being common thugs. No, some people have morals.

When it comes to deniers, logic does not apply.

Why should anyone address something that is your delusional thinking alone? The scientific establishment (academies) don't know what you are talking about and THEY have all the credibility. YOU have none.

An interesting article from Australia in regards to it's new tea bagging PM who is trying to drop the carbon tax and the Australian public don't want him to. He has even done moronic crap like cut the funding from Australia's leading science research center because they push the message on climate change. You flat earther's might take note.

"Whatís the difference between a politician and a scientist? Well, in Australia at least, the public thinks scientists are way more trustworthy than their elected representatives. At least five times more trustworthy. Itís not a trick question. Itís actually one finding in a sober piece of research carried out by the Australian National Universityís Centre for the Public Awareness of Science, in an effort to understand how this country engages with science and whether it listens to scientific advice or not. "

"The survey, which had a sample size and balance similar to most national opinion polls, also found that CSIRO scientists (78 per cent) and Nobel laureates or scientific Australians of the Year (82 per cent) rated higher still, among our most trusted figures. Itís the kind of result the average pollie would die Ė or maybe kill Ė for.

To elaborate, 15 per cent of respondents said they trusted the politicians, 41 per cent were not sure, and 42 per cent said they didnít trust them.(Shock jocksí health warning: you may experience apoplectic seizure on learning that the general public considers environmental spokespeople about twice as trustworthy as you.)"

Science isn't a popularity contest; science is decided by experimental test. There has never been a published review of a climate change mitigation experiment or any real world test of AGW theory.
