The possibility of a super El-Nino this year is gone and the chance of a strong El-Nino isn't favorable. Poor warmies, just cant catch a break.

Learned a new word? Can't get your mind around it? Even paranoid people have enemies and the climate models haven't been reconciled with real world tests. Climate models produce output and climate modelers program models to demonstrate man made greenhouse gas emissions have enormous climate impact. That's observed and admitted fact, not conspiracy.

Quick climate science history reminder for the Supermoon 12 July, perigee simultaneous with the full moon tonight.

Svante Arrhenius based his AGW theory on temperature measurements of moonbeams traveling through known different lengths of atmosphere.

I wonder if that's why some people think Arrhenius' theories are lunatic, especially when he promoted white power and eugenic programs against Asians, Southern Europeans and Africans. Svante Arrhenius, the founder of progressive climate science and climate justice.

Models are being refined ? Next you're going to say James Hansen is preparing for public debates, keep lying to yourself and see what comes from that.

When Bill Clinton took office in January 1993 in Washington DC it was freezing. It was probably about 30 degrees.

Now, over 20 years later, the temperature today is over 80 degrees. See what's happened in just 20 short years?

Now who's the wacko bird?

Hold your breath. If man can change climate then global warming is already mitigating against climate change, the catastrophic and well known ice age climate scenario.

When CO2 levels reach 500ppmv, I'll take a vacation to celebrate.

If the President doesn't think it's a priority, why should I?
He went to 3 fundraisers yesterday. Not 1. Not 2. 3
He should be meeting with industry and government leaders in a climate change roundtable.
So like Al Gore, Obama should reside in a tree house while you keep driving around in your big a$$ truck. Who is the hypocrite then ? All you deniers are about is trying to gag the messenger by not accepting anything they say. It's the same stupid message from the gun lobby who say Obama is a hypocrite wanting to ban automatic weapons while he allows his secret service agents to carry. If you can't see the stupidity in that logic then we are all wasting our time trying to debate anything with you.
