We've heard it all before. You are such a retard. Ask scientists if we can moderate AGW and thus climate change by reducing GHGs, then act upon their knowledge, not your hysteria.
There's never been an experiment that's tested the effect of man made GHGs on climate change. That's how you can tell it's a hoax.

Drink the Kool-Aid or else!

Lawrence Torcello - assistant professor of philosophy at Rochester Institute of Technology, NY - Climate scientists who fail to communicate the correct message about "global warming" should face trial for "criminal negligence".

New dinosaur found in Northern Canada

New dinosaur, cousin of T. Rex, discovered in Arctic

"Even though the Arctic was much warmer and more heavily forested in the Cretaceous period than it is now,...."

"But the Arctic was much warmer, and the area was covered in tall, conifer forests and flowering plants. The temperature would have been similar to western Canada today."

http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/new-dinosau...

__________

Imagine that, northern Canada was warmer long ago and the climate changed. Oh my, what are we going to do because climate changes and the earth has seen many changes before?....LOL

In Newfoundland Canada, on the northern peninsula of Newfoundland, Vikings landed around 1000-1100 A.D. Vikings grew vineyards/grapes back then meaning the weather was warmer because the local climate of Newfoundland is far from ideal to grow them today even in it's summer months. So again, a natural change.

Stop the hysteria.

LOL. Can you locate the US on a map today? Have you seen the world map for the Cretaceous period?

Where's England? Egypt? Italy? The poles?

One C of warming roughly. This doesn't sound like a lot but it is a MASSIVE change to the system. The ice ages were only -3C to -5C globally. One degree is a major change to climate systems.

by how much will mitigation change climatic cycles?
This much depends on how effectively we reduce the forcings. However, there is an old saying. If it hurts when you do this, stop doing this..

Rather, the continental block that is NOW Canada was in a location and climate that was much warmer than the arctic circle. Party due to very high levels of GHG's. Partly due to continental drift.

Over hundreds of millions of years, just about everything changes. Not relevant to AGW which is occuring in the space of a century. Much faster than any of the processes that lead to climate changes over the eons.

You are confused. While they had a base in Newfoundland (Aux Meadows) they travelled southward to 'Vinland' for concord grapes. Might have been Virginia or even Georgia. You are that most dangerous of fools, the half educated one.

Please. Stop posting so that your hysteria is not public at least. And get educated on the subject. Some real understanding might quiet those voices in your head.

btw....if the ice age is going to be your bench mark get ready for a global facial, son.

who is hurting, son? not me!! nor are most self sufficient people i know.
there's also another saying....."inaction is the best enabler of flexibility". you jumped into a pool of concrete with boots on and insisted everyone else do the same. i'll wait awhile and check back with you later in spite of your insistence.
Do some learning if you can:

A one-degree global change is significant because it takes a vast amount of heat to warm all the oceans, atmosphere, and land by that much. In the past, a one- to two-degree drop was all it took to plunge the Earth into the Little Ice Age. A five-degree drop was enough to bury a large part of North America under a towering mass of ice 20,000 years ago.

It confirms that even a one C warming of today will trigger major changes to climate dynamics. What did YOU think it meant? Oh, and you do understand that the lowering of salinity from meltwater is due to AGW?

i said in historical terms!!
and of that "massive" change.....can you quantify how much is man made induced beyond natural variabilities, son?
go ahead and lie!
hahaha

Let me help you a little.

"In the past" was in my post instead of your "historical" because history specifically refers to the study of the past as it relates to humans. Furthermore, if you read my link, you find there:

"the preponderance of evidence says it’s humans—thermometer readings all around the world have risen steadily since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution."

So, that's in historical terms and man-made.

As to your own words, "man-made induced beyond natural variabilities," are you fibbing again? LOL

Piss off topix blowhard. The earth has been through changes before, climate has changed before. You freaks are paranoid over something that has happened before. I hope they put a fracking operation right on your front lawn, you Torontonian baboon.

Don't try to "educate" me on Newfoundland and any of it's history either.

I called ad hominem arguments irrational, Jefferson wrote of ridiculing arguments, not the people who proposed the arguments.
