Oh, so NOOOOOOWWW you admit volcanoes affect climates? Like how they tend to COOL the earth for a year or two after they erupt?

<quoted text>The same way that ants in sugar bowl don't affect the whole counter top they are on.
Like the famous myth of how the Great Wall of China can be seen from space and yet the interstate system of the United States cannot.
Though you might think yourself grand and significant, mankind just ain't big enough to chnge the entire globes climate. The idea is assinine. You can't even see cities from space except the lights at night and even then it's only with a prolong exposure for a camera to pick it up.

>>I don't "think myself" into it at all, idiot. I go by scientific fact, which indicates the Earth is warming. You can pretend it's not happening, or we're not doing it, because of what you "think" it looks like, but that means something between diddley and squat in the real world.

<quoted text>Use you head, man. Politics drive the issue for the green weenies as well.
Use the simple science you hopefully were taught in elementary school and see what hogwash is being put out there.
Follow the money and you'll see that lepracaun, Al Gore, at the end of the "green house" gas rainbow.

>>Another idiot who thinks it's "all about Al Gore" and tries to excuse his own political partisanship by projecting it onto his opponents. Boring.

People who politicize it, as you are, are a big part of the problem with understanding of what warming is and how it wil affect us.
And not those who still are stuck on the idea of man made global warming?

Offtopic, vulgar, superstitious, and silly. But what else would one expect from a raving nut with a nickname like yours?

Here's to you meeting up with a polar bear one day...;)

AGW scientists account for volcanic processes. Toxic topix AGW deniers deny they do, reflecting their lack of science & mathematics degrees & little science & mathematics in their poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaas..... if they even have hi skule DEE-plooomaas.

Western Washington winters have sporadic snow falls in the lowlands. As time spans from the coldest period of our winter increase, snow becomes very much rarer. However, I've seen snow(not ice sleet) come down in June. So you ain't saying nothin'.

Science has a standard for measuring how well theories work, experiments. There are no experiments that show climate change mitigation can work or how much it would cost, nobody has ever changed global temperature, much less mitigated climate change, by experiment. That's how you can tell its a hoax.

Stuff that works is made up of prototypes, then progressively more effective real world models. Stuff that doesn't work is sold by testimonials from consensus and graphic effects from computer models.

Please learn the difference between reality and fiction.

We've done the experiment. We added half a trillion tons of carbon to the atmosphere, and what happened?

According to radiative physics and decades of laboratory measurements, increased CO2 in the atmosphere is expected to absorb more infrared radiation as it escapes back out to space. In 1970, NASA launched the IRIS satellite measuring infrared spectra. In 1996, the Japanese Space Agency launched the IMG satellite which recorded similar observations. Both sets of data were compared to discern any changes in outgoing radiation over the 26 year period (Harries 2001). What they found was a drop in outgoing radiation at the wavelength bands that greenhouse gases such as CO2 and methane (CH4) absorb energy. The change in outgoing radiation was consistent with theoretical expectations. Thus the paper found "direct experimental evidence for a significant increase in the Earth's greenhouse effect". This result has been confirmed by subsequent papers using data from later satellites (Griggs 2004, Chen 2007).

Our CO2 emissions are part of our lives, not an experiment.

As long as people like Fair Game don't understand what's an experiment and what's not, they'll keep fearing climate change catastrophe. Learn about science and how experiments are used to test theories.

More useless diarrhea from the "pinheadlitesout".
Get that issue and your diaper rash solved and maybe your allergies will be cured. Try to stop sticking your head up spacedoutblues behind and that may help as well.

Hoax? Look at how many climate change denieers believe in things like Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden, the Noahic Flood and the Tower of Babel? Brian?

So is a drugs trial, but it's still classed as an experiment.

I suppose if we released a trillion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere just out of idle curiosity it would be an experiment?

What was "The Great Experiment?" Imbibing alcohol proved to be part of peoples lives, eh? If your logic regarding "drill baby drill" were implemented as a fix for the eighteenth amendment, baby formula would be 6 proof.

Experiments are not a "standard" of anything. They are simply tests done to determine the accuracy of something.

Climate change MITIGATION is not at issue, but climate change itself and its causes. Mitigation is obviously a straw man here.

Claiming that because you can't peform a hugely difficult feat makes something a "hoax" is an absurdity.

Theories are not physical "stuff that works" like toasters, but explanations tested over time by many methods, INCLUDING but not LIMITED TO experimentation. Of course there are many experiments demonstrating the greenhouse effect and global warming.

Please take your own advice, troll.

Experiments are not always things done in laboratories with test tubes by men wearing white coats, glasses, and pocket-protectors.

Your teachers should have told you this at some level, Brian. Did you ever graduate high school?

By your standards, if an archaeologist can't fully re-create lost civilizations from the past, they did not exist.
