no rants, son, just stating the obvious. climate has always changed and always will. your crowd claims that man made co2 emissions are creating heat. i say what about the natural emissions....what about the other drivers....
your crowd goes into a hissy fit soon after.
that's why i know you promote a hoax.

Until you can equate causes of the climate change of 4000 years ago with what is happening today, your argument is without merit. But of course you have never understood science and logic.

Obama is working with an economy that was a hospital pass from Bush. Anything he wants to change about that economy your side WILL NOT let him. So he is stuck with the status quo, a government run by powerful lobby groups and big business interests. So all the tweaking to the economy has to be done with the same rusty ole toolbox that was left to him. He needs a new tool box, the only way that will happen is a congress that is more innovative & progressive thinking. Not likely to happen from the GOP so expect more of the same and the divide will become even greater. Trickle down is a myth!

This is not a critique/analysis of "research".
It's pointing out an error in a blog.
A blog which misrepresents climate research.
Do you have anything to say regarding Roy Spencer's choice of period and start and end dates for the baseline of his analysis yet?
Once again little troll, you're dodging.

Nope... but I've noticed your continued hypocrisy in continually posting to Topix adding more and more CO2 to the atmosphere that is already at CRISIS levels.

No you are making this statement because it's what you want to believe. Science has shown that man is accelerating this heat way beyond the normal natural cycles and as a consequence of that we can expect extreme weather on far more frequent basis than any time in man's history.

Now this is what you refuse to believe or accept no matter how many people are saying it.

For every dollar you empower the bottom end of the food chain it goes straight back into the economy, that's what creates jobs not million dollar exec's salaries.
In most countries 25 to 35% is the average tax rate and 40%+ for high income earners over a certain bracket. But the point is, research scientists get paid peanuts compared to a wall st jockey and in the end who is the most valuable to the country. Someone who comes up with a cure for cancer or the guy who works out an algorithm for derivative products.
Yes, that's why they are bankrupt and running across our borders.........get your GED.

science isn't based on consensus, so it doesn't matter how many people are promoting an untested hoax.

OK, then perhaps you could explain to us in a simple way exactly how they could test it other than a mathematical model ? I mean a lab test proves that CO2 is a green house gas, so we already know that. But what possible way could it be tested on a whole planet, send a few nuke missiles to a nearby earth like planet and record the effects. Just what would you recommend that would satisfy your scientific doubts ?

Depends whether they accurately report the peer reviewed science or misrepresent it.

Mine accurately report it, yours misrepresent it.

Depends whether you can defend the arguments made in the blog.

Your post #c47628 is a good example.

http://www.topix.com/forum/news/global-warmin...

It's such an obvious misrepresentation of peer reviewed science that even Fox News doesn't make the same mistake.

Are you willing to defend it?

No.

Are you able to defend it?

No.

Do you have the honesty to admit it was wrong?

No.

For somebody who goes on about hypocrisy, you have an ironic lack of moral integrity.

But you're just here to throw shit.

Not really surprising you don't want to smell it afterwards.

Did it occur to you that sincere experts are expressing their concerns based on their knowledge to the public?

Did it occur to you that they are being listened to with gratitude and actions are taken in response so that "the sky won't fall?"

Did it occur to you that some countries like Italy expect their scientists to warn them of even natural disasters? Come on, this is a man-made disaster in progress!
