A leaked draft of the Fifth Assessment Report of the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (due to be released later this month) downgraded the likelihood of a connection between past temperature rises and extreme weather events. According to the report, there is "low confidence" in any association between climate change and hurricane frequency or intensity.
So early lies precede the release.

Bogus. The satellite data of recent years is by far the more accurate and stable measurement. Proxy estimates (i.e sunspot) reading have much higher error bars and thus make it less 'robust' to analyze. This isn't a matter of opinion but of fact.

You really think he understands such terms as "proxy" and "robust"?

Why don't we wait for the report?

It's still in the editing stage, and there's bound to be internal politics at play.

What I've heard is that the report will again be fairly conservative, possibly because of heat they have received for the previous reports, causing them to pull their punches. If so, congratulations, denialists, you are influencing science your way and endangering civilization even more.

After all, we don't want to get too alarmist about an impending catastrophe, do we? That would make us all Chicken Littles.

Socialists committed ideologically to notion government should control every aspect of our lives. Will not let tool go to waste that gives absolute power and control they want and have waited 100 years for and allows them to get it under the GUSIE of saving the planet."
Patrick Moore co-founder of GreenPeace
Effect on validity of science =ZERO.

That's the neat thing about science. It's evidence based and self-correcting. No amount of political fussing has any effect on the evidence.

An example of KYLE logic:
- A million more square miles of ocean being covered in ice in a year's time doesn't change the fact that the Earth certainly must be warming.
Example of LIbEralS argument:
- Ignore all arguments made and concoct some rhetorical flourish. That smells like defeat.

It's the warmists promoting global warming who aren't abiding by the "science".
Not bitching; pointing out your illogical argument style. BTW, you were illogical again. The logical response would have been an acknowledgement of your previous logical failure, not more of same.

You fail to follow conversation.
Doesn't matter, nor change the fact that the leaders and promoters aren't abiding by your science.
Gawd... that's gotta really bug you, huh?
I follow the conversation just fine:

Deniers deny science.
Deniers lose on science.
Deniers argue non-science as a non sequitur argument for science.
Deniers refuse to acknowledge the above, so they deny the subject being discussed.

No it isn't, as already explained. If Hitler himself launched WWIII to enforce a global carbon tax while burning every acre of the Amazon forest, the effect on the validity of climate science wouldn't be affected one iota.

Hahahahaha time for a lesson:

A theory is not the same as a hypothesis, as a theory is a 'proven' hypothesis, that, in other words, has never been disproved through experiment, and has a basis in fact..[Wikipedia]

See how confused you were before about what a theory is. You're welcome.

QED, I was right, you were wrong. LOL.

A two-month-long expedition to one of the most remote sites on the planet the sprawling Pine Island Glacier in Antarctica has revealed that currents of warm water beneath the glacier are melting the ice at a staggering rate of about 2.4 inches (6 centimeters) per day.

An international team of researchers journeyed to the southernmost continent to study the Pine Island Glacier, which is the longest and fastest-changing glacier on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. This region, in the far reaches of Antarctica, has been of particular interest to scientists because it is among the most rapidly melting ice masses in the world, thinning as it flows to the Amundsen Sea at a rate of about 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) each year.

Since warm seawater flows beneath the ice shelf (the part of the glacier that floats on the ocean), scientists have known that the Pine Island Glacier was melting from below. Now, using sensors deployed across the 31-mile-long (50-km-long) glacier, the researchers have gauged the rate of glacial melt beneath the solid ice.
