I find it hard to believe that there are STILL people that don't believe that global warming is occurring.

These are the same people that in years past said the moon landings were faked in the Arizona desert - why does anyone pay attention to these loons?

N.o.m.T.'s confusing global warming with climate change mitigation; I've never claimed the perception "we can see the temperature rising" is wrong. You can create a trend of any slope if you pick the right start and end points.

I'm claiming advocating climate change mitigation is wrong, especially if you've got an interest in selling 'news' media, scaring voters into giving their support or collecting research grants. I provide this evidence: it's never been experimentally tested.

I cited an experiment:

"This paper presents the results of a [field] experiment that used social marketing to introduce a new ride program into three rural communities...."

We've had years of tests for our drunk driving laws that show harsh penalties deter drunk driving. We've never had an experimental test on any man made greenhouse gas emission or capture that's shown any climate change. See the difference?

The guy explains it real slow, so you can understand.

He also shows that Al Gore was only 9 years old when he got some scientists to start saying CO2 would warm the earth, thus starting the hoax....

It appears that farmer may have gotten greedy.

Yes, average corn yields were below average but it is interesting to note that a record was set for total number of bushels that went to market!

That suggests... Well, I suspect you folk from MS are savvy.

Thanks for the link, quite informative.

What Does Climate Change Mean for Minnesota
The problem
Increase in greenhouse gas emissions

Like windows in a greenhouse, carbon dioxide in the earth's atmosphere traps the sun's heat and insulates the planet. Minnesota's carbon dioxide emissions have increased 37 percent over the past 20 years, according to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.

Increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are warming the planet. Carbon dioxide comes primarily from the burning of fossil fuels, such as exhaust from vehicles and coal burned to generate electricity. Changes in the climate pose significant environmental and economic threats to communities in Minnesota and throughout the world.
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.

Posted often the error of toxic topix AGW deniers.

AGW energy enhanced warm fronts push hard into the Arctic, one of the causes of the dramatic high Arctic warming. Simultaneously, the warm fronts vigorously push Arctic cold fronts to the south, causing record colds as far south as Mexico, Central America, China, India, or Africa.

toxic topix AGW denier 'did find learning 2 b a waste' used his philosophy as an excuse not to learn.

There's been no experimental tests of climate change mitigation; there is no science. We fear higher taxes, intrusive regulations and wasteful government spending, you fear catastrophic man made climate change. The difference is, nobody's ever seen a catastrophic man made climate change event but we've all seen taxes, intrusive regulations and waste in government.

Disgusting!

You are not qualified to say this. What business of yours is that you lie about science!

You have repeated this more than 41 thousand times over many years. You are devoid of any integrity.

You are dismissed as a human being.

The scientific method demands theories are tested, not taken on faith:

1. Observe some aspect of the universe.

2. Invent a tentative description, called a hypothesis, that is consistent with what you have observed.

3. Use the hypothesis to make predictions.

4. Test those predictions by experiments or further observations and modify the hypothesis in the light of your results.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until there are no discrepancies between theory and experiment and/or observation.

If you disagree, please cite the most compelling experiment for climate change mitigation you've found.

Hung by your own petard, retard!

"4. Test those predictions by experiments OR*FURTHER*OBSERVATIONS and modify the hypothesis in the light of your results."

DONE!

The most compelling OBSERVATIONS that argue for climate change mitigation are all over the Web. Look it up, dear.

But you already believe in mitigation, in your own words:

"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."

Kerry Emanuel registered as a Republican as soon he turned 18, in 1973.

Back then, Emanuel saw the Republican Party as the political fit for a data-driven scientist. Today, the professor of atmospheric science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is considered one of the United States’ foremost authorities on climate change—particularly on how rising carbon pollution will increase the intensity of hurricanes.

In January 2012, just before South Carolina’s Republican presidential primary, the Charleston-based Christian Coalition of America, one of the most influential advocacy groups in conservative politics, flew Emanuel down to meet with the GOP presidential candidates. Perhaps an unlikely prophet of doom where global warming is concerned, the coalition has begun to push Republicans to take action on climate change, out of worry that coming catastrophes could hit the next generation hard, especially the world’s poor.

The meetings didn’t take.“[Newt] Gingrich and [Mitt] Romney understood,… and I think they even believed the evidence and understood the risk,” Emanuel says.“But they were so terrified by the extremists in their party that in the primaries they felt compelled to deny it. Which is not good leadership, good integrity. I got a low impression of them as leaders.” Throughout the Republican presidential primaries, every candidate but one—former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who was knocked out of the race at the start—questioned, denied, or outright mocked the science of climate change.

Soon after his experience in South Carolina, Emanuel changed his lifelong Republican Party registration to independent.“The idea that you could look a huge amount of evidence straight in the face and, for purely ideological reasons, deny it, is anathema to me,” he says.
