Back to the main point; there has never been an experimental test of climate change mitigation or man made global climate change published in any peer reviewed journal. That's how you can know climate change mitigation is a hoax; don't buy a pig in a poke.
You've already bought it. You believe in the effects of CO2 because on 4/12/13 you wrote:

Using fossil fuel helps free ancient carbon back into the atmosphere where it can do some good. Freeing carbon dioxide into the air helps mitigate climate change against global cooling; the well known ice age climate scenario.
We've always adapted to climate change. Don't panic.

Are you lying now or were you lying then?

Bill has an honerarry degree and was a salesman, not a teacher. Bill Gates, chairman of Microsoft, will speak at Harvard University's commencement ceremony in June and, like all commencement speakers, will receive an honorary degree from the institution.

<quoted text> Snow is a form of precipitation , and hasn't climate scientists been warning now for years that global warming will cause our winters to be wetter, with more extreme swings in the weather --what can be more 'extreme' than massive snow-shower superstorms one day and 70 degree weather the next? "Brace yourselves now — There is some evidence that climate change could in fact make such massive snowstorms more common, even as the world continues to warm. As the meteorologist Jeff Masters points out in his excellent blog at Weather Underground, the two major storms that hit Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., this winter — in December and during the first weekend of February — are already among the 10 heaviest snowfalls those cities have ever recorded. The chance of that happening in the same winter is incredibly unlikely.
But there have been hints that it was coming. The 2009 U.S. Climate Impacts Report found that large-scale cold-weather storm systems have gradually tracked to the north in the U.S. over the past 50 years. While the frequency of storms in the middle latitudes has decreased as the climate has warmed, the intensity of those storms has increased. That's in part because of global warming — hotter air can hold more moisture, so when a storm gathers it can unleash massive amounts of snow. Colder air, by contrast, is drier; if we were in a truly vicious cold snap, like the one that occurred over much of the East Coast during parts of January, we would be unlikely to see heavy snowfall."

Yes, I know you are right. It's just that I was not prepared for colder winters lasting to June. See, for years I have seen many reports suggesting that Minnesota and the rest of the Midwest were heating up and drying out at an alarming rate. So naturally I was very excited about the prospect that I might live long enough to see 400ppm of atmospheric CO2 thus assuring frostbite in April to be a thing of the past. Alas, such is not the case. The heatwave and drought ridden fore casts of Countless Catastrophic Climate Change models did not prepare me for cold wet Springs and below average Summer Temps. I think I'll go burn some wood in the fireplace now to take the nip out of the cold air. Stay warm my friend,

So, you prefer not to get frostbite in winter at the cost of destroying the planet. Wouldn't spending a few dollars on buying a pair of warm mittens be a lot less expensive?

Lets see global warming produces cold and hot winters, cooler and hotter summers, late and early springs and falls, extreme wet and dry conditions, high winds and no wind, more tornadoes, ETC. Anybody believeing all of this is just nuts.

Really frightening is that they are obviously nuts to a sane person but they are unable to realize it themselves.

How can they be THAT NUTS and IGNORANT at the same time?

Frost bite in April/ May was not an issue until CO2 pollution got above 350ppm.

Now I have to pay a sales tax and a carbon tax for mittens in May.

Excuse me, I don't mean to sound impatient, but when is that Warmer Dryer Climate the experts predicted for the Midwest going to get here?

Moron proudly repeats the "I'm smarter than a million PHD's" argument, proving that the anti-intellectualism the US has long been known for continues its proud tradition. Also, repeating already revealed fallacies sans any support or even acknowledgement demonstrates the Dunning-Kruger Effect rather well. For those demonstrating it, it means you're so ignorant that you think you're smart.

Warmer temperatures

Minnesota has warmed an average of one degree Fahrenheit during the past century. Parts of northern Minnesota have warmed five degrees Fahrenheit or more during the winter months. As the warming continues, northern cities like Hibbing may develop climates more similar to the current climate of Albert Lea or Des Moines, Iowa.
What does climate change mean for Minnesota?

Climate change is already observable. Animal and plant habitats are shifting, weather patterns are changing, and severe storms and droughts are becoming more common.

Minnesota has warmed an average of one degree Fahrenheit during the past century, according to the MPCA. Precipitation has increased by 20 percent since 1990 in parts of Minnesota, especially southern Minnesota.

If temperature readings and precipitation continue to increase over the next century, Minnesota might soon feel and look more like Missouri. Other impacts of climate change in Minnesota include the following.
Changes in ecosystems

Changes in the climate alter the plant and animal species that can survive in a certain area. This has an impact on some of the unique ecosystems and wildlife species that are currently found in Minnesota.

Areas of the state that are forested will decline by as much as 50 to 70 percent and be replaced by grasslands and savannas. The unique northwoods of pine and aspen will be replaced by forests of oak and other trees.
Reduction in the size and number of prairies due to possible drying: Minnesota prairies are the most important breeding ground for North American waterfowl as well as countless species of birds and insects. Prairies are also home to some endangered plant species.
Temperature and moisture patterns will change faster than plant and animal communities can adapt. This will result in the extinction of numerous plant and animal species in the next 100 years. Loss of habitat for cold-loving creatures such as trout and moose would cause the decline of these species in Minnesota.
Additional pests, diseases and invasive species may be able to extend their range into Minnesota.

Water resources stressed

Increased lake evaporation in the summer and decreased length of ice cover in the winter will reduce lake levels and degrade water quality.
Groundwater resources, a major source of drinking water, may be reduced due to a drop in stream flow and lake levels.
Lake temperatures are rising, which severely stresses the plants and animals in these aquatic habitats.
Reduced water levels in the Great Lakes will reduce the carrying capacity of large lake freighters, impacting commerce.

More extreme weather

Weather patterns will become more extreme. The overall frequency of both flooding and droughts will increase.
Infrastructure for runoff and water management, such as storm sewers, is likely undersized and will need updates to deal with increases in heavy rainfall and flash flooding
More heat waves and extremely hot summer days will result in more heat related illness and death. Hotter summers will increase demand for indoor cooling.
Increased frequency of poor air quality (smoggy) days in summer.
Winters with less snow will decrease opportunities for winter recreation. Milder winters will also affect animal hibernation patterns, stressing food supplies and habitats.
