Full story: TwinCities.com

Moronic denier argument #1- Climate changed before, so we can dismiss all the science.

It's utterly nonsensical. There isn't even a hint of logic there.

Splained plenty of times.

The Arctic has had 24 hours of darkness for nearly 6 months. Been really cold up there. But man-made excess energy in the atmosphere has occasionally but more vigorously pushed warmth into the Arctic. Simultaneously, cold Arctic fronts are pushed to the south. Often while the Arctic is excessively warm, southern climes are excessively cold.

You're obviously a sock puppet for the original, as this is exactly as retarded as Post Hole Fitter's non-responses.

'Bout 10% of the air pollution in the west coast states of the U.S. comes from China. We got tsunami trash from Japan washing up on our shores. May not bother the 'Lands of the 10,000 Lakes' much, tho.

How much VOG reaches the west coast?

There used to be palm trees and crocodiles at the Arctic. But if you see the crocs buying Bermuda shorts and sun cream and moving north again, don't think it's nothing to worry about- the rest of the Earth was arid and inhospitable when the Arctic was tropical.

Geological sources are not emitting enough CO2 to explain the rise. Observable fact.
How do you observe all geological sources of CO2 when more than 2/3rd of the Earth is under the oceans?

Global warming is faith based, not science based.

My point is simple, if you are going to buy a hair growth product you should try a sample or a product that's been experimentally tested. Why wouldn't you use the same standard for climate change mitigation?

I accept the science of climate change; climate always changes. There's no experimental evidence we can do anything to mitigate climate change. I call that 'practical' grounds but if you want to call it 'scientific' grounds; go for it.

We've tens of thousands of years learning to adapt to climate change. Human climate adaptation science is so strong we can now live almost anywhere on Earth. No living species has evolved the ability to mitigate climate change; life adapts.

CO2 is increasing in the oceans from the top down not the bottom up, and the isotope ratio doesn't match anthropogenic CO2.

Science.

Water moves around, it's fluid. Science.

Please note, if the isotope ratio doesn't match anthropogenic CO2, then the CO2 isn't man made. Problem solved.

No, the CO2 isn't volcanic.

OK. You should be using the same principle before you burn fossil fuels.

You are not thinking clearly.

Yes, & there was no experimental evidence that we could go to the Moon in 1963 when President Kennedy proposed we do it. You are just one of the pessimists who GUARANTEE failure before they even try.

What would happen if you started a business with the attitude "I KNOW this business is going to fail"? What if Jeff Bezos had had that attitude when he started Amazon? After all, there was no experimental evidence his business model could work.

You must have had a very tough time in life. Have you ever done ANYTHING worthwhile?
