That's a complex question but when you break it down, all ad hominem irrationality. Warmists despise reason and science, that's why they use name calling instead of logic. Note the vulgarity? You can learn almost too much about a person from what they write.

Back to the point, what's the most compelling experiment you've seen for climate change mitigation?

This is true of holocaust deniers but they are being rescued by OzRitz and the warmists who misuse the word to obfuscate the genocide of six million Jews.

Warmists are the same people who deny Israel the right to exist as a Jewish state; antisemitism has many faces. Warmists aren't as bad, disguising history by conflating deniers with people skeptical of climate change mitigation schemes, as those who advocate violence against Jews, but they are on the same track.

You can't determine man made catastrophic climate disruption is pseudoscience and climate change mitigation is a hoax based on the warmists' own words but you should take note.

Yes mdbuilder, there is no proof of any kind what so ever!
Some experts say yes, some say no........?!
So, I guess some are correct but we'll never find out who?
Little bit like the stock market, someone's always right what stocks to buy,
but only after the fact!
Some always know witch team wins the Super Bowl too,
after the game's played, easy to say then I told you so!
But Global Warming, forget about it, we'll never know!

If you do, you are a dishonest and ignorant poster. You also assume wrongly that AGW would help you in the future.

If you live in a cold and dry climate, AGW promises warm weather and more precipitation so long as you continue to emit carbon dioxide. If you live inland, AGW brings you rising sea levels and beachfront property if only you reject climate taxes, emission restrictions and do nothing but live your life in peace, freedom and prosperity. AGW means more extreme weather of all kinds, including more extremely beautiful weather, more beautiful than any weather seen on Earth before man started burning fossil fuel.

What's not to love about global warming?

Nonsense. You would not comprehend this:

Terrestrial carbon cycle affected by non-uniform climate warming

Feedbacks between the terrestrial carbon cycle and climate change could affect many ecosystem functions and services, such as food production, carbon sequestration and climate regulation. The rate of climate warming varies on diurnal and seasonal timescales. A synthesis of global air temperature data reveals a greater rate of warming in winter than in summer in northern mid and high latitudes, and the inverse pattern in some tropical regions. The data also reveal a decline in the diurnal temperature range over 51% of the global land area and an increase over only 13%, because night-time temperatures in most locations have risen faster than daytime temperatures. Analyses of satellite data, model simulations and in situ observations suggest that the impact of seasonal warming varies between regions. For example, spring warming has largely stimulated ecosystem productivity at latitudes between 30 and 90 N, but suppressed productivity in other regions. Contrasting impacts of day- and night-time warming on plant carbon gain and loss are apparent in many regions. We argue that ascertaining the effects of non-uniform climate warming on terrestrial ecosystems is a key challenge in carbon cycle research.

Good one Sven. I like your reasoning. This entire debate is ideological. Not scientific.
What do you know of reasoning? Politics and ideology, only.

Increased frequency of extreme Indian Ocean Dipole events due to greenhouse warming

Countries in the southern tropical Indian Ocean region are prone to extensive flooding and droughts in years when the Indian Ocean dipole (IOD) climate cycle is in an extreme positive phase. In these bad years, such as 1961, 1994 and 1997, warm waters appear in the western part of the basin and precipitation increases, whereas in the east cooler waters predominate and precipitation decreases. Here Wenju Cai et al. assess climate model projections in a scenario of high greenhouse gas emissions and find that the frequency of extreme positive IODs is likely to increase from one event approximately every 17.3 years through the twentieth century to one event every 6.3 years during the twenty-first century.[nature.com]

If we have cut our carbon footprint by 30% Obama's goal, how much have you cut yours.

Sorry I'm late. Is this the forum where the same 14 people (not even 1 for every 2 states) post over and over thinking they are somehow making a difference?

Yes that be the one, and you will be one of the 14 using a different alias to try and appear objective.

Crap?

Warmists who preach the global warming mantra, but don't act like it's the "crisis" as they say is the definition of hypocrite.

You think you're not?

Prove it... shut up -- that way you won't be adding more of the evil CO2 into the atmosphere.
