Yes, you need some heat from 80+degF. Arctic places, which are 30 arcdegrees latitude, north of your position.

I see that the same idiot deniers are still here with their non-science stand-up.

And the same science advocates doing pointless battle against them with facts.

I'll check back in a week or two and see if anything's changed.

Pointless?

If a person has trouble with nature, cannot stand the weather, gets headaches, nausea and is disturbed, there are mental institutions for those people. Seriously, they have a psychosis. That's THEIR problem, not the rest of societies and they should deal with it themselves.' litesong' should have known the short bus driver would not let him on the bus because of the feathers on his foot, knowing he had a bird sandwhich in the bag he was holding. sometimes hot, sometimes cold. it's called the weather. happens every day.

You must be speaking of Spaceblues and the other routine warmists.

They are always touting their "science" but ignore it to post and post and post... each time puffing out more CO2 that they claim their "science" is already at "crisis" levels.

So glad you figured it out.

We see everyday the same moronic warming kooks on here lying and trying to pass off false data.Your right it's pointless to battle the warming kooks.They have been indoctrinated and brain washed. POINTLESS arguing with you trolls.
Why not say check back in a year or 2 and we'll see nothing has changed. GW will still be on a hiatus but the trolls will be convinced the world is ending.

Gord, Earthling and Tina are remembered even as they've move on to better forums.

I do not believe in climate change mitigation, climate taxes are a hoax. I don't know if our CO2 emissions are significant to climate or not; that's never been experimentally tested I concede man made global warming is theoretically possible but man made catastrophic climate disruption is pseudoscience.

If so, then our greenhouse gas emissions are already mitigating climate change against catastrophic global cooling, the well known ice age climate scenario. What's not to love about global warming?

Because, idiot, the next ice age was due a thousand or more years in the future. If we're mitigating that, we're going to be several centuries too early.

Your logic failed.....again. What's that make, about 600 times now?

No.....its logic failed 48,037 times. It goes along with the errors of "lyin' brian" which are 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, 3000 TIMES, 73+million TIMES, 2.5+trillion TIMES, & 3.5+ trillion TIMES.

This yoyo-effect on the climate is thought to have persisted for a million years, causing half of all species to go extinct. By studying the world's biggest volcanic eruptions, scientists including Dr Jourdan have been able to establish the importance of the speed at which our climate changes, on how many species go extinct.

And the bad news is that modern climate change is faster than the change caused by Northern Australian volcanoes which resulted in a mass extinction event.

"We emit greenhouse gas 25 times faster than those volcanoes," he says.

Dr Jourdan says it would be a mistake to take comfort from the fact that humans have been emitting greenhouse gases for a much shorter time than volcanic eruptions which caused mass extinction, albeit at a faster rate.

"A mass extinction may take a long time, but you need much less to have serious consequences."

with your posts demonstrate your hypocrisy. On the one hand you favor reductions in CO2 emissions, but on the other you keep adding more with each post.

You deny your own "science".
