Global warming 'undeniable,' scientists say

Scientists from around the world are providing even more evidence of global warming, one day after President Barack Obama renewed his call for climate legislation. Full Story

Abstract

Over the past decade there has been little decrease in the number of alcohol-related driving fatalities. During this time most interventions have been educational or legal. This paper presents the results of a field experiment that used social marketing to introduce a new ride program into three rural communities....

I'm saying, there's never been an experimental test of climate change mitigation, therefor it's a hoax.

You might disprove that by posting a citation to a peer reviewed journal that shows an experiment on man made greenhouse gas and climate temperature. If you can do that, I'll change my mind.

What would it take for you to change your mind about climate change mitigation?

Can you explain why they picked the traditional day that our founding Pilgrim fathers chose to put up May poles with rainbow streamers to dance around and celebrate the coming Spring's natural bounty?

Closing in on the second half of May and we, in Minnesota are looking at another winter storm or two! Now the man on the mountain (Keeling) is saying that the gas that is boiling our planet is at historic levels. Clearly, 400ppm of CO2 is not high enough to drive up temps this Spring.

Now the question is.: At what level does CO2 have to be to make it physically impossible for this ridiculously cold weather... IMPOSSIBLE?

Last question for this Post: Everyone reading this... Could you all please produce as much CO2 as you can? Thanks.

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."

I always enjoy the educated PHDs etc that claim Global Warming is proved by Minnesota ALL TIME RECORDS set for ice out and COLD TEMPS.

I always remember uneducated Bill Gates who without a degree IS one the richest men on earth.

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.

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.

Congratulation, you "think" an exception who ISN'T you, proves you have a brain ???

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?

Here's another voice from the peanut gallery of non-scientists. You are not a scientist either.
