When the science of climate change sounds like it's being written by The Onion, it's time to abandon ship. So AGW has now been completely flipped. Those arguing that temperatures would rise at least 0.2 per decade due to the fact that CO2 is the main driver of temperatures and climate are now telling us that nature is going to be the main driver for another 20 years on top of the already 13 years, totally 33 years. That main driver of the climate, CO2, is just hiding out right now, just waiting to blow up in 2040. And you know that whole thing about weather is not climate, we really meant weather is climate. On all of this, we are completely clear. Oh and then after using dying polar bears in every presentation about the catastrophic effects of climate/weather change, the IPCC guy says this: In terms of impact on wildlife, the focus has been made not just on flagship species, such as the polar bear, which, as it turns out, is apparently able to adjust, more or less, this after they told us the polar bear populations were dying off.
What is really scary is caveman and the like. When caveman posted this the other day,
"Let me ask again; are you sure about these numbers? They all show warmth above the average. And, they are from HadCRUT4, NOAA NCDC, NASA GISS, and the WMO? Can you really trust these four organizations, after everything else they have SAID?"
I couldn't understand what he was babbling on and on about because I had just explained how he was wrong on that NOAA prediction. He then blamed the mix up on too much coffee, so I gave him a pass. I take that back. It then hit me, that he thinks any number over the average of the 20th century is proof we are still warming. He truly has no understanding of what the numbers mean, what to compare the numbers to, etc. He truly believes we are lying and that there has been no standstill or even slight cooling and he is going around presenting the Al Gore Dirty Weather Show. People like that are scary.
The IPCC is definitely prepared for a long period of No Warming, possibly due to a solar minimum . Fun Facts posts on here, he's studied solar for quite some time so you might watch for his posts.

As for caveman, anyone who claims they lost track of 10 years of data in one morning b......t , you fill in the blank.

Lie. They are prepared for a period of stable or lower AIR temperatures due to climate influences from rising cool water in the Pacific (ENSO, La-Nina). This is a flaw in the use of meteorology data to track AGW (global average surface temperature of which 98% is land and water).

Done. Note that this is old news:
http://www.skepticalscience.com/levitus-2012-...
"With any luck, the paper will be published in a few months (it was) and we'll have more to say on the subject at that time (they have). In the meantime, Levitus et al. have once again reminded us that although the surface warming may have been dampened in recent years, global warming hasn't magically vanished, and that heat stored in the oceans will eventually come back to haunt us."
You've been shown to be wrong. A rational and honest person would now admit it. Can you?
Here is a news article from 2009:

World will warm faster than predicted in next five years, study warns. New estimate based on the forthcoming upturn in solar activity and El Niño southern oscillation cycles is expected to silence global warming sceptics.

The study comes within days of announcements from climatologists that the world is entering a new El Niño warm spell. This suggests that temperature rises in the next year could be even more marked than Lean and Rind's paper suggests. A particularly hot autumn and winter could add to the pressure on policy makers to reach a meaningful deal at December's climate-change negotiations in Copenhagen.

http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2009/j...

When reading the comments section to this article, a poster said this:

“Contrary to the subheading, rapid warming in the next five years certainly will not silence the sceptics-- it's hard to imagine that anything could. They'll just say that it's solar activity, as they've said all along, and El Niño, nothing to do with us, and not worth lifting a finger to do anything about it.”

Funny how it’s the alarmists that keep trying to explain the standstill.

True. All the talk of natural variations causing the slow down or pause in temperature increases is interesting. When temps were going up, no one talked about natural variations causing it to go up. Now that temps are not going up natural variations are being considered.

Temperatures in my area are lower than in the last 25 years. We had a 73*F high one day in July, and hit a record low of 60*F. Didn't get our first 100*F day until June. Our spring was cool as compared to the last 25 years.

Excellent observation, "fun facts"!!
Another point of interest is that all severe weather events seem to be the result of "man made dirty weather" when those events are near populated areas that receive a lot of media coverage.

No Warming said you have studied solar impacts. There is so much information out there and it gets crazy trying to sift through it. Some scientists have said that the increase in sun spots over the last 100 years has made the Earth warmer, but then alarmists say in the last 35 years of global warming, sun and climate have been going in opposite directions. They say the sun has been going in a cooling trend, but global temperatures are going up.

What is your take on this?

Looking at the chart, it seems that cycle 23 starting in 1996 and ending in 2008 does fit into the standstill we are seeing in temperatures. Do you have a prediction of where you think temperatures will go during this solar cycle?

Another thing they tell us is that the Earth is warming faster in the last 35 years than it has in 11,000 years, so it has to be because of CO2. They really want us to defy logic on this one. We have 4 temperature datasets. None of them agree on the exact temperatures. These datasets are constantly updated and revised. Yet they want us to believe that by looking at few proxies, they know exactly how fast temperatures went up 11,000 years ago.

oh but 'facts', we have been told time and time again, over and over, by the alarmist global warming caused by man religious fanatics that it is not the sun, it is all caused by man. the only explaination for any slowdown in the warming caused by man is becaused of the carbon tax imposed on the people of austraila. because of them being forced into paying carbon taxes we are already seeing cooling on a world wide scale. don't you see 'facts', it is not the sun or it's cycles causing global warming, it is people not paying carbon taxes.

I know about the renewable fuels standards. I hadn't heard it referred to as "rfs2".

I have absolutely no interest in it. I doubt I can do a thing about it. I favor more efficient vehicles. That's my response.

My area of expertise is construction; residential, commercial, and industrial. I work for more efficient buildings, which now use ~40% of energy in this country. I promote wind and solar, which are more compatible with and adaptable to buildings than they are to transportation.

Again, I have no interest in your subject.
