Really desperate troll.
There's just as many libtarded organizations putting out bold faced lies,false data. They have been caught red handed deceiving the low information sheep.
Bet your ass,follow the money. There's more corrupted money in the liberal scam machine than any other group.
You should stop embarrassing yourself with the cow dung you put out.
OK truth-facts, how about some truth & facts.

Can you prove what you say, or is that just diarrhea of the mouth?

Wunsch was looking in the abyssal ocean (2000m+).

The heat is in the deep ocean (>1500m).

Hmm, this is our diatribe to you deniers, that if you really were interested in the truth, you could find it. But, no, you are the ones who are trapped by dogma, a closed mind, and fear of change.

Al Gore is a distraction. It's kinda like Godwin's Law, in that when you start using his name, you don't have any real facts or science to back up your tirades, so you lose the debate..

Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) is a theory (hypothesis). It is an
unproven theory. What you do with theories is put them to the test with
scientific observations. Let's see what data points we now have:
1) Average annual temperatures have not surpassed 1998 (NOAA)
(University of Alabama)
2) Average annual temperatures are now trending downward since 1998
(NOAA)(University of Alabama)
3) Ocean temperatures have not risen since 2000 when the 3000 Argo buoys
were launched. The buoys even show a slight decrease in ocean temperatures
4) The Arctic ice froze to February levels by December 07, there are 1mm
more sq km than before (previous was 13mm sq km)
5) The Arctic ice is 20cm thicker than "normal" (whatever that is)
6) All polar bear pods are stable or growing (NOAA/PBS)
7) Mount Kilimanjaro is not melting because of global warming, rather
"sublimation"
8) The Antarctic is not "melting", it is growing in most places, the
sloughing off at the edges is normal as the ice mass grows
9) The majority of the Antarctic is 8 degrees below "normal" (again,
whatever that is)
10) The coveted .7 degree rise in temperatures over the last 100 years
has been wiped out with last years below "normal" temperatures (NOAA
coolest winter since 2001)
11) Al Gores film was just deemed "propaganda" in a court of law in the
UK as many points could not be substantiated by scientists
12) It was also just reveled that some of the footage in Als film was
CGI. The ice shelf collapse was from the movie The Day After Tomorrow (ABC)
13) One of the scientists that originally thought that CO2 preceded the
warming has now found with new data that the CO2 rise follows the
warming (Dr David Evans)
14) August 2008 was the first time since 1913 there were no sun spots.
15) The Medieval Warm Period was warmer than the 20th century (no SUVs)
16) Many scientists are now predicting 30 years of cooling.
17) The greenhouse effect is real, our small contribution to it cannot
even be measured
18) Several publications, including those that are warmist have recently
written that the natural cycles of the earth may mask AGW. Give me a break.
One Break, Coming Up! Your half hearted attempts at making theory fact are telling, as when used without expectation of someone already misinformed and proud of it to not research your individual listing of falsehoods and incorrect statements. The first I found suspicious and checked was that the Antartic is growing. Horse Feathers, Wilbur. Sea Ice Growth is NOT Continental Growth. You have already proven to be willing to post self serving to your argument without regard for differentiation of the two, and attempt to make up your own facts, which shows ignorance of the Truth and a willingness to Spread Falsehoods.

Perfect fodder for the already committed to The Lie that Global Warming is a hoax. So sorry that like the Polarization of US Citizens in the Political Two Party System, you have pandered to the lowest common denomination, the Losing Side. Fact is, it IS too late to reverse our fate, but with empirically deficient cheerleaders such as yourself, we might as well go balls to the wall and not change a thing, because you obviously have no interest in trying to prevent your Children and their Children from a future where Anthropocentric Change leaves our Oceans Dead and Water unavailable.
I hope they thank you in kind...

And in conclusion, I will through in a Newsmax Article just to show how the clamor of what appears to be your Party of Disbelief like to have fed to them so you can 'feel' correct:

http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/antarctic-se...

"The sea ice coverage around Antarctica over the weekend marked a record high, with the ice surrounding the continent measuring at 2.07 million square kilometers, according to an environmentalist and author who says the ice there has actually been increasing since 1979 despite continued warnings of global warming.

The new record was posted for the first time by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s online record, The Cryosphere Today, early Sunday morning.

It's not apparent if the record actually occurred on Friday or Saturday, says Harold Ambler on his blog, Talking About the Weather.

Ambler is a journalist and author of the book "Don't Sell Your Coat: Surprising Truths About Climate Change."

Sounds like you could get a job at Newsmax.

So you think it doesn't make sense to cool iced tea on the stove top, but it makes perfect sense to cool the atmosphere by increasing the temperature of the ocean?

Do you see how that is a contradiction?

No. Global warming is the trend over the long term. Noise is just the nature of climate science since there are many non-linear processes involved that randomly fluctuate within the 'phase space' of climate. Just think of day to day weather. Is it always the same??

Just a few notes on your education, all your own work:

Forty is spelt with a U

Deforestations[sic] is a consequence of AGW
Epistemologists compile dictionaries
Epystemologists[sic] compile dictionaries
Samuel Johnson was an American
Ice calving is restricted by size
Spelt is only an ancient grain
The equator doesn't have "season"
There isn't a 'right or wrong' way of spelling
Cars can be charged with road collisions
Vikings didn't know how to live in a warmer Greenland
How much heat you are transferring at one time has NO relationship to the temperature of any objects
Alberta is a country
New Moore island is in the MOUTH of the several rivers
Insects and plants don't qualify as species
Enercon install offshore wind generators
Scientific laws are not science
Climate and weather are not 'linked'
Predictions are for astrologers
Ethanol is a very workable and effective solution
AGW is just the warming of the global average surface temperature due to GHGs
AGW is the global average
The science says that human emissions are responsible for MOST of AGW, which has SOME unknown but significant part of climate change
The IPCC report of 2001 and 2007 clearly show that GHGs are by far the largest contributor but not the exclusive contributor to AGW
America has two political parties
Climate and weather are not 'linked'
'nondenier'[sic] is a real word
Fruiting plants are especially chosen by bees for, "polination"[sic]
We acted on CFCs in the 70s
CO2 is not vital for life on planet Earth
CO2 causes, "thermal pollution"
CO2 is a 'thermal pollutant'
CO2 levels are rising faster than the temperature can react
AGW is comparable to the Holocaust
Please show this 'ararmist[sic] club' and membership list
And theory is the endpoint of science
The 'unproven' stuff is 'hypothesis'
The fact that all the scientific authorities confirm AGW as theory means that it IS science fact as defined
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
Experiment is NOT science
Experiment can only give you data. it cannot PROVE anything
