Have you heard of some dementia patients repeating the same things over and over?

Maybe, fossil-fuel funders recruit those people for denier-posting. No?

OMG! This is an example of Poe's Law applying as equally to climate denial as to evolution denial. Let's take a poll:

Although I find it to be astounding, I vote "B".

Fanatics really hate being challenged, and will attack any challenger, foaming at the mouth. Not with facts, but with talking points from their implanted dogma.
We, who have not been impressed by the charlatans, find this to be tremendously amusing, and though we realize that it is somewhat like poking a stick at a crazed bear in a cage, the spectacle is irresistable.

As I said, no point in facts, when you're too stupid to support them.

Slewsie dear, how was your nap? You vanish so quickly sometimes that I worry about you. It makes me think your meds are causing you to black out again.

I respect your radical positions on Global Warming.

However it's a colder than normal winter, it doesn't jell with the Global Warming claim.

Overall, winters have warmed about two to four degrees in the past 30 years or so. One good way to measure it is to look at these number of subzero lows that we're seeing at night. There are distinct trends that are emerging in the past 30 to 40 years toward fewer subzero low temperatures in Minnesota and the Twin Cities.

Quick example: this year we've had five days so far, last year we had three. That's a very low number. If you go back to the 1970s - the whole decade - we had 444 subzero days. During the 1980s we had 280, during the 1990s we had 256; down to 198 in the 2000s. That's a 57% drop in those subzero nights. If you look at that overall the trend lines show we could be down to around 10 on average per winter. We used to average about 30 back in the '70s and we could be maybe closer to zero by 2040. By 2040, in the Twin Cities we could be very close to few or any subzero nights if our current climate trends continue.
