And there is generally sh*t behind them.
<quoted text>
Yes. The global surface IS warming. Nobody said or even implied that it would be uniform everywhere. In fact, the whole issue of 'climate change' is about the fact that it will NOT be uniform. All you demonstrate is your ignorance or deliberate stupidity.
<quoted text>
No. GHGs are generally 'well mixed' over the planet. Cooling from sulphate aerosols (i.e smog) is localized though since it is not as persistent in the atmosphere as the gases. This is simple grade one stuff. You need to understand a topic before you bust out with bullship..
<quoted text>
Two reasons. One is that the emissions from one year are spread downwind almost immediately. The coal smog from the Mississippi valley doesn't STAY in the Mississippi valley does it? In fact, the states and countries downwind enjoy the pollution. Same with CO2 emissions except that they are mixed over the entire globe.
Secondly, the rise of 0,9C or so in (global average surface temperature) is not disruptive. BUT it affects processes such as the shear in the jet stream that DOES change where heat energy is moved (i.e arctic air can move south easier). This is the consequent CLIMATE CHANGE driven by AGW.
<quoted text>
The problem is global. The US did produce a lot of the emissions that are in the current atmosphere but nobody is singling them out, nor can the US stop it alone. Please read SOMETHING about it.. The old whine about the US being 'picked on' by other countries is just bafflegab.
<quoted text>
You call us idiots when you confuse global climate with local weather????
Again, you demonstrate the total stupidity of those who cannot understand or do not WANT to understand the science or evidence.
Tell somebody who gives a sh*&t.

Stay in Canada and put out some of those forest fires that are smoking up Minnesota.

You cannot run from Climate Change resulting from out of control Global Warming. You can just understand it. I'm sure that your area will also have issues with AGW driven climate changes but you will just whine about it.

It IS getting warmer, AND colder, and wetter and drier.

Climate is driven by the global average surface temperature along with the relatively static influx from the sun which is stronger at the equator and weak at the poles. Climate change from changing the balance is just what we have to understand (see above). It isn't uniform or even simple.

He's over 80, too old to blow out a candle.
He spells forty with a U, claims "There are no 'laws of science"
"Scientific laws are NOT science"
Says that "the science isn't going to change," but goes on to say "While the science doesn't change rapidly it does change."
"Deforestations[sic] is a consequence of AGW"
'Insects and plants don't qualify as species'
"Climate and weather are not 'linked'"
"Predictions are for astrologers"
"Ethanol is a very workable and effective solution"
"CO2 is not vital for life on planet Earth"
"CO2 causes, "thermal pollution""
"CO2 is a 'thermal pollutant'"

I have dozens more of his daft comments stored for reference, all with links to where they were written.

Where is "out of control" Glowbull warming hiding, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty?

He won't be around to whine about it, neither will anyone living right now, even a newborn baby that lives to be 90

While I'm here, can you explain these comments you made, please:
"There are no 'laws of science'"
"Scientific laws are NOT science"
"the science isn't going to change"
"While the science doesn't change rapidly it does change"
"And nowhere is there 'skepticism' of the science"

Do you still cling to your claim that "CO2 is not vital for life," particularly animal life, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty?

Ten years after increases in the rate of Global Warming stopped this erroneous report was released:
"Once Slow Moving Threat, Global Warming Speeds Up"

And after more than 16 years there are people posting on this thread that STILL don't get it!

Why just a couple of months ago the so-called 'scientist" came up with a dozen reasons for the so-called pause in GW. Now they are up to 52. This horseshit gets more laughable as each day goes by.
By Christmas we'll make it an even 100.

Our part of the country is also being affected by global warming. We are getting long periods of typical temperatures and rainfall given the season at the time. No more out of the ordinary coldness or uncommon heat. Whatever precipitation and temperature is common for this area at a particular time of year, that's what we are receiving.

We must combat this climate pattern.

Problem is, they haven't realised that yet, their blind faith won't allow it.

Our resident climate catastrophist crusaders are denying the pause/hiatus in Glowbull warming, which puts the denier boot on the other foot.

Yep, if things don't change, they'll stay as they are.

I am rejecting all the studies that 'explain' the pause until the one that publishes evidence that Man's CO2 is responsible for the pause.

Just wait ...it will happen :-D
