No one has disproved the theory of agw.
You can't disprove what hasn't been proven yet. The only thing that has been proven is Al Gore could make 200 million scamming the American people.....well low information voters.

Name caller.. do your own research.

Fracking encomposses so many issues from earthquakes to drinking water. Scientific evidence about what, silly goose?

When your well is polluted, for an example, you can't drink it. That's evidence that fracking is bad for you. What science can tell you to drink polluted water and get sick or die!

Read above my post about the launch news.. TODAY, just out.
LIAR, you are!
You are a copy/paste denier, that's all.
Dude, YOU posted this ONLY 3 hours ago:

"You can't even follow news. That NASA launch was scrubbed on Tuesday. The mission is to measure atmospheric columns for CO2 content... after the satellite gets launched, flies, and gets calibrated, etc"

What a misleading and lying rube.

You do realize you only provide homur and no substance, right?

Hey you are wrong again.. I told you it was scrubbed on Tuesday because I knew it on Tuesday.

I posted about it elsewhere.. in Topix. FAIL, again.

You asked for scientific evidence. And I replied about it because you have no idea what you are asking about.

Why don't you answer my question, first?

This is typical of deniers. LOL.

Hey, lazy denier, here's my post yesterday.

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

NASA released their TODAY's launch today. Check yourself the hours. They did not make it up like you lied about the launch.

Also, you said previously something about disproving AGW. You are ignorant to the infinity.

proof that your opinion are steeped in emotion and unscientific beliefs.

“The energy released by one of these tiny microseismic events is equivalent to the energy of a gallon of milk hitting the floor after falling off a kitchen counter,” said Stanford university Geophysicist Mark Zoback, who was an Obama administration Energy Department advisor.
“Needless to say, these events pose no danger to the public,” Zoback added.

A peer-reviewed 2012 study on fracking in the Inglewood Oil Field in Los Angeles County found that “the high-volume hydraulic fracturing and high-rate gravel packs had no detectable effects on vibration, and did not induce seismicity (earthquakes).”

“We also find that there is no evidence to suggest that hydraulic fracturing itself is the cause of the increased rate of earthquakes,” wrote David Hayes, deputy secretary of the Interior Department, in a 2012 report.

how does liberalism make you feel better about yourself when that ideology forces you to lie and make up shyt so often?

Perhaps a better choice of words would have been falsifiable, However disprove and falsify have similar meanings. A scientific theory must be falsifiable. Folks have a hard time understanding the difference between the common definition of theory and the concept of a scientific theory.

The theory is that the wastewater is creating friction in dormant rifts, thereby inducing earthquakes that never would have happened, otherwise. Before 2008, Oklahoma experienced only a handful of quakes. By 2010, the state was experiencing "earthquake swarms" totaling more than 1,000. Other states, including Ohio, Arkansas, Kansas, Colorado and Texas, have also suddenly become earthquake zones. The common denominator is wastewater disposal from fracking.

Arkansas has placed a moratorium on wastewater dumping in certain areas, and Ohio now requires seismic studies before issuing permits for injection wells. In March, regulators from Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma met to discuss tougher standards on an industry that is barely touched by government rules. Meanwhile, oil and gas industry bosses are in denial or in hiding. In the process of doing a story on wastewater disposal and earthquakes, a reporter for Mother Jones was unable to get a comment from anyone in the industry, save for one executive who said those claiming to know the cause of the Oklahoma quakes are "either lying to your face or they're idiots."

Those idiots include a number of respected scientists, but the industry is busy hiring their own pliant scientists to concoct arguments about why earthquakes cannot be blamed on wastewater disposal. The industry scientists will augment veteran teams of lobbyists in Washington, D.C., and state capitals standing ready to block any restrictions on fracking.

An industry with imposing political power and the ability to induce earthquakes where there should never be earthquakes; now that is a force to be reckoned with -- almost a force of nature.
