psst... you're extrapolating 'weather' quite a bit there buddy. Doesn't your "science" say not to confuse the 'weather' and 'climate'?
C'mon back when that 'weather' happens over and over and over again... that's 'climate'.
What a dupe.
No science warn's global warming gives rise to EXTREME weather, now we are getting examples of it every other week all over the globe. Trying to pass that off as the normal weather cycle, is also denial in the extreme. It's happening in Europe, US and around the globe all weather records broken as far back as records have been kept, some 100 + years or more. Now to keep telling us this is all part of a normal cycle & repeat it over n over despite these records being broken on a weekly basis is beyond insane.

Look.. the last denier left is the poster who posted "agw is a hoax." Well, that's lousy, still. We might have reached already a point of no return with some coral colonies, for example.
Coral colonies need CO2 to survive. Carbon dioxide doesn't doesn't bleach coral, warm water causes coral bleaching AND more CO2 emitted from the oceans. Earth's seas contain 50 times more carbon dioxide than the atmosphere. Even if the seas weren't warming, the osmotic pressure alone would cause more CO2 emissions from oceans.

Dr. Kevin Trenberth, the former head of the Climate Analysis Section of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, emailed [Joe Romm] that “the study [by Florida State] is plausible.” Both Trenberth and another top climatologist, Dr. Michael Mann, agree that: This latest study provides further evidence for what many climate scientists have already surmised: that climate change is substantially altering the atmospheric environment in which thunderstorms and tornadoes form, increasing risk of major tornado outbreaks when conditions are ripe. Mann adds,“The findings, moreover, undermine the claim made by some contrarians that human-caused climate change will reduce tornado activity and risk.”
Skeptics claim man made global warming would reduce waterspout, typhoon and hurricane activity as the temperature of ocean and atmosphere temperature equalize. I haven't heard of a skeptic claiming fewer tornadoes from global warming, can you cite?

There are no experimental tests so we don't know how to mitigate climate change. Wait for the science, don't jump ahead like Robin Williams did.

Doomers are trotting all over the internet to find extreme weather events (never mind the CO2 they produce in their 'searches'), but nonetheless, individual events do not a pattern make.

BTW, maybe it was dinosaur made global warming that caused the extinction of dinosaurs to make those fossil fuels for us?

Climate Science Does Not Support IPCC Conclusions

From one report to the next, IPCC keeps changing the evidence it relies on to support its claims of AGW.

Interesting. Topix supports deniers like #49421.

My last post with that number was deleted.

What happened to my freedom of expression after meeting the rules of Topix?

No wonder deniers flourish in Topix.

Topix deletes your profane and defaming posts. Try working on the message instead of being distracted by the messenger.

There's never been an experimental test of climate change mitiation.

Example:

See #49398 to start with and read down the page, how deniers incite and attack while lying, denying, misrepresenting science results.

Why their posts stay when others' deleted without matching theirs, not even coming close!

What was deleted was not profane and defaming:

"Well, you are wrong, of course.

But then that's why you are a denier of science, LOL. Chicken and egg, simply."

P.S. Look at how many times this poster have posted its profane and defaming posts. Evidence is clear.

No one has to search the net for these, they are splashed all over the newspapers on a weekly basis. Anyone that subscribes to any media news service will get a story on climate change almost on a daily basis from some part of the world. Your job as a denier is to ignore the lot of it and pretend it's not happening. However as each catastrophe impacts on the greater population your crowd of deniers diminish on a daily basis as well.
