You use unreasonable arguments in an attempt to get an emotional response. Mostly you get rational explanations of why your arguments are unreasonable, but also people point out that repeating them endlessly makes you a troll, which is a reasonable argument.

Where we differ is you are disingenuous and the people who respond to you are honest.

I agree: we need to reverse it to make it an experiment: reduce CO2 and see if we get the opposite effect. Just adding more CO2 and seeing more warming and less radiation escaping to space proves nothing.

No he doesn't.
I've seen nothing but character attacks from your side of the argument.

So spring 2012 was warmer than average AND the experts said it was evidence of Global Warming.
Spring of 2013 is colder than average and the experts claim it's more evidence of Global Warming.
WHICH IS IT?
You can't have it both ways!!
Science is full of apparent contradictions.

*Normal* warmer temperatures are an indication of global warming.

*Anomalous* colder temperatures may be evidence of warming *if* the mechanism is described.

Normal winter temperatures are increasing; anomalous colder temperatures due to Arctic cold being pushed south are also occurring as Arctic sea ice declines influencing weather patterns.

Both were predicted before the event.

If you're looking for simple, science isn't it.

Possibly due to your not being able to spot an unreasonable argument.

"You constantly demand an experiment even though experiments are not part of observational science therefore you are a troll" may seem like a character attack if the words before "you are a troll" have no meaning for you.

Your lack of respect for others point of view speaks volumes about how you define what is reasonable or unreasonable.

OK I'll forget it.

But if you view temps at the north and south poles they are both very cold.

Seems like anyone who disagrees with you is a troll.

Obviously you don't actually view the temps at the north pole, co they ain't.

Cause if you dont, you discredit yourself, regardless of the intentions of others.

Again...your conviction that anyone who disagrees with you has an ulterior motive speaks volumes about what you consider reasonable or unreasonable.
