Still on with this hypocrite crap, apparently it is true moths do fly around in circles.
If we have cut our carbon footprint by 30% Obama's goal, how much have you cut yours.
It only takes a few solar panels & a smaller car.

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.

Yep... this be the one. This thread is chock full of phony hypocrites who talk big but keep adding more CO2 into the atmosphere with each post.

And then bytch about CO2 level 'tipping points'.

I'm sorry none of us are retreating to a cave just yet, especially while you deniers run around polluting the planet even more. So if we do have to go to a solar powered cave we will make sure you deniers are dragged in there kicking & screaming as well.

HAHAHAHAHA, they are like me, preach one thing and do another. Of course these minions here are just sheeple. THey are stupid and gobble up the crap people like me feed them on globul warming and I get rich. By the way, I have had a mansion by the sea for decades, and guess what, the ocean level has not risen one inch. SUCKERS!

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.

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.
If anything is less tested than the effect of man made greenhouse gases on climate, feedbacks takes the award. Climate always changes.

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.
The effect of man made greenhouse gasses on the climate is most apparent at night, when people sleep, or at the poles, where nobody lives.

SpaceBlues wrote:
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.
^^^Two thirds of the Northern Hemisphere will experience large stimulation in ecosystem productivity thanks to our carbon emissions. More spring flowers and better crop production over most of our Hemisphere; what's not to love about global warming?

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.

The study is a review of past climate, not an experiment showing the effects of a controlled and known greenhouse gas emission or sequestration on climate. We'll never solve that key problem in carbon cycle research unless we use the scientific method.

The Process Of The Scientific Method. The basis of the scientific method is asking questions and then trying to come up with the answers, based on logic.

Hypothesis. Make a good guess based on a few observations
The Whole Earth Laboratory
It is difficult to design and conduct experiments which prove evolution. We do not know how to introduce the effects of time. We can only guess at the environmental conditions.
It is impossible to make the earth and the cosmos into one gigantic laboratory where we can change the variables. And a small model may not be adequate.
Theory. Do experiments based on your guess and find other patterns.
State the question. How did the universe originate and how did life begin?
Form a hypothesis based on observations.
Do experiments. Gather evidence in the form of measurable data.
Science This step produces the impartial data that will guide personal opinion or interpretation.
Interpret data and draw conclusions from the values and figures your experiments generated
Revise theory (go back to step 2).
Principle Or Law. If the theory stands the test of time and is proven over and over, and can create true predictions for different situations, has uniformity and is universal it becomes a law.
This is my first problem with the proponents of evolution. They claim that it is no longer a theory but I do not know of any laboratory experiments that have proven it or any reproducible experiments that demonstrate it.

You know Hitler was a Christian, right Brian?

Gott mit uns.

He didn't like homosexuals either because Jesus was homosexual. Hitler had a hard time with that.
