<quoted text>^^^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?

<quoted text>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.
Do you know the percentage of people who work at night in USA? Work does not sleep in USA!

You speculate without basis. Spring flowers? WOW! More allergies, haven't you heard?

How is it you grovel over Obama so pathetically? Is it because he's a believer?

Brian, you absolutely make no sense! And say the weirdest shit. And have nothing to back yourself up.

One wonders if you are even human, or just a repeating typing program that repeats the same memes rearranged in different order.

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.
Well this is a novel response... the global warming hypocrite admits he's a global warming hypocrite, and attempts to parlay his hypocrisy into a 'save all mankind' argument.

Not the 'big' a hypocrite, but one just the same?

The 'green' one is attempting to dismiss some 'inconvenient' science by alleging that one's religions beliefs prevent contrary science from taking place.

But if one were to mention say 'financial interests' of the global warming research machine, expect warmists to defend scientists''integrity'.

Curios that on the one hand beliefs about the hereafter are a rationale to dismiss arguments but those about paying the bills today are not at all suspect.

More double standards produced from the "settled" 'science' "consensus" crowd.

How do they keep track of them all?

Nobody is disputing that, and you know it. It's the absurd notion that man can prevent it, that's in dispute. To make such a ridiculous assertion, you must first prove we cause it. That's where your "science" falls pitifully short.

Nobody? Do you speak for all your buds?

So you dispute deforestation, too.

Study: Deforestation leaves fish undersized and underfed [bbc.com]

Prevention is the key. Science can't do prevention but people can stop harming themselves and other living.

Science grows long and deep without getting shorter, LOL.

No, you are not correct.

When you die of food poisoning you are slow compared to flooding or lightning death. However, cancer develops in decades just like climate change consequences.

Food shortages created by man-made global warming result in deaths over months of starvation.

Weather can kill more in extreme cases as it is happening with tornadoes, etc. under our modern situation.
