Global warming 'undeniable,' scientists say

Full story: TwinCities.com

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.

Hear Ye Hear Ye BBC report (Google it) the coldest storm in a
decade also affected a number of other countries as well.
Still unanswered is why the Number of Huricains Predicted for
this year had to be Lowered Lowered because the Weather Forecasters
said it was getting cooler cooooler Not hotter.

Dumbazz denier fallacy #2 - "It's cold somewhere ..." raises its ugly head yet again.

Still unanswered is why you reach conclusions on the realities of AGW that are contrary to MOUNTAINS of science based on cherry-picked things like the number of predicted hurricanes.

It's like denying that objects fall because you saw a helium balloon.

Actually, there's no need to answer. There are only a few answers and you'll never admit to any of them. You're either:

1)... a paranoid, conspiracy theorist wingnut devoid of any ability to assess evidence or acknowledge refutations. IOW, exactly like a troll except you're so irrational that you actually believe what you claim to believe.

2)... an ideologue, so wedded to their ideology that even science and objective reality must take a back seat.

3)... a religious fundy that is likewise helpless in the grip of dogmatic thinking, except you reject reality with a supernatural twist.

4)... a disinformationist, somehow compensated for rejecting reality in a public forum to make reality rejection seem like a viable, mainstream position.

Cool.

My biggest complaint is the denier-walled focus on temperatures instead of moving on to solutions, especially re ocean acidification and sea-level rise.

Hear Ye Hear Hear Ye you are still behind the times---Alaska in in
in August had a big Snowstorm One of my sources for
knowledge of Scientific Research is that Liberal Bible Bible--the National Geographic Magazine
that recently --- reported that such things as solar activity
on the sun have A Lot More Affect on On Our Weather patterns
than Previously thought . You Obviously don't even keep up with
your own Liberal Liberal sources
Ask Ask Ask the People Of Florida--the Carribean -- and Mexico etc.How they
are affected by the Number of Hurricians In a Given Year.
Remember Katerina--- Sandy---Andrew...
Paranoid Conspiracy??? Didn't Obama get hold of Bush's
Weather Machine ( remember Katrena I'm Sure You Believed that one)
and directed it against BP.

As is easily predicted, you simply chose to repeat dumbazz denier fallacy #2, invoked the same cherry-picked cherry (while ignoring that it's been revealed as such), nlatyeeing on about it in a desperate fit of hand waving, and purposely misinterpreted a popular media headline (yes, I read it).

That's good evidence that you're far more dishonest than irrational, which is evidence for you fitting that last category of denier.

If you stutter when you type, there's something wrong with your motor skills.

Remember-"affect"-ve rb
-"effect"-noun

What part of Alaska? You do know the state is roughly one-third the size of the continental US, don't you? That's a pretty big place. Lots can happen. Especially since most of it is above the 60th parallel and full of high mountains. Do you think snowstorms are rare in a mountainous region near the Arctic Circle any time of the year?

Did Obama get hold of Bush's Weather Machine (I didn't know Bush had a one!) and direct it against BP? Is that from Alex Jones or Glen Beck

The deniers should learn this:

RAPIDLY rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are causing a potential catastrophe in our oceans as they become more acidic, scientists have warned.

Hans Poertner, professor of marine biology at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany, and co-author of a new study of the phenomenon, said:“The current rate of change is likely to be more than 10 times faster than it has been in any of the evolutionary crises in the earth’s history.”

Sea water is naturally slightly alkaline, but as oceans absorb carbon dioxide from the air, their pH level falls gradually. Under the rapid escalation of greenhouse gas emissions, ocean acidification is gathering pace and many forms of marine life – especially species that build calcium-based shells – are under threat.

Poertner said that if emissions continue to rise at “business as usual” rates, this would be potentially catastrophic for some species. Acidification is just one of a broader range of the problems facing the oceans and the combination of different effects is increasing the threat. Poertner said:“We are already seeing warm water coral reefs on a downslide due to a combination of various stressors, including (rising) temperature. Ocean acidification is still early in the process (but) it will exacerbate these effects as it develops and we will see more calcifying species suffering.”

Sea water is alkaline and calcium based shells require CO2 to form.

What Part of Alaska??? Northern Alaska In In In August August
the temperature dropped to 15 Degrees-now if you use old Math to
Measure Temperature you get one of the Coldest drop in temperature
recorded in Northern Alaska Now that's Cooooold However if
you use the Democrats New Math to measure temperature I'm sure
you would still say that's hot. Duhhh

Maybe you need to do an experiment, brian?
Long term shells experiment shows the influence of a decreasing pH on shells of marine organisms mainly made of limestone.

Yes. And it must be even more alkaline to produce carbonate shells than it is under acidification. Acidification says nothing about the Ph except that it is getting lower (more acid, less base)
Brian_G wrote:
<quoted text> calcium based shells require CO2 to form.
Yes. Did you have a point?? They form quite well under 280 ppm of atmospheric CO2. They form less well with 400 ppm due to acidification. As usual you make statements that are true in detail but say nothing meaningful.

Northern Alaska? You mean to tell me that there was a snowstorm in northern Alaska, above the Arctic Circle? I'm amazed! How in the world did that happen? And in August August, too?

But tell me more about Bush's Weather Machine. I might want to buy one. And why did Obama direct it against BP? When did he do this? And who was running the country while he was tending to this?

"Duhhh" is right.
