When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

That's called 'exhaling', it's not an experiment either. You really should learn what experiments are and how they are used to test theories so you can understand science.

Fair Game might be catching on, experiments are deliberate procedures to test theories.

Not only are experiments deliberate, they attempt to control one variable while measuring another variable.

So deliberately releasing CO2 would be an experiment?

Only problem is, your experimental method wouldn't work.

And we've never tested the greenhouse effect of CO2, if we nuke an underground coal mine that's been enriched with oxygen, can we produce enough CO2 to make a measurable change in temperature? Might be worth a try.
How can we produce enough CO2 to make a measurable change?

By burning coal or oil, of course.

So burning coal or oil deliberately would be an experiment.

Burning it in power stations would not?

A schoolboy would see that that is idiotic.

The fact that you repeat the idiocy makes it obvious that you are simply a troll.

Oh you poor little thing?

Are you being bullied?

It's pretty obvious you are pitching your arguments to the less well educated, who won't know one end of a scientific argument from another, but hate being condescended to, and hate seeing another less well educated person being condescended to.

So you make stupid arguments knowing the less well educated won't spot how stupid they are, or won't care, and clutch your pearls and appeal for sympathy.

Just an appeal for the less smart to shoot themselves in the foot rather than listen to smart people you and they resent so much.

Do you threaten your kids with this bullshit? You need to be a real planet lover and be happy not disappointed a climate crisis was a tragic exaggeration. Maybe you just hate humanity and want to drag us all down with you in your miserable life. I'm a capitalist and I've worked for what I have. I didn't do it at your expense. Get ahead of the curve and stop acting like a fear mongering neocon. We don't have to love the planet with your fear.

27 years of wrong predictions of a coming climate crisis proves it was an exaggeration and you and the neocons sit and wish this misery was real. Nice!

Sure, Brian, I guess what all those coal-fired power plants are doing is "exhaling." Same thing with cars. They're just breathing. I get it now. You're SO clever.

If you live long enough, you'll come to see that we're right & you're terribly, terribly wrong. If you don't, your progeny will.

Of course, you're dead WRONG again. More than 30 years ago, Hansen et al made a remarkbly accurate set of predictions about what would happen to temperatures & other aspects of climate. If you dare, read it:

http://pubs.giss.nasa.gov/docs/1981/1981_Hans...

Actual temperatures turned out to be a BIT higher than they predicted, but it was close enough. They also predicted other things that have subsequently happened: shifting climatic zones, drought in central North America & Asia, unstable ice sheets & the opening of the Northwest Passage.

Why don't you find ONE denier who was so accurate in predicting things so far into the future? One, just one.

Show me one single IPCC warning report not full of "maybes". Science has never said any crisis was certain, imminent, eventual,inevitable or "WILL" happen. Science says comet hits are a real eventual crisis and has NEVER said the same for climate change crisis. Prove me wrong!27 years of maybe means won't be. Deny that Doomer.

One very hot or cold year regionally or globally= no big deal. The main concern is trends over decades. In 1934 the ice caps were ok. the glacier melt provinding water to billions of people annually= ok. now the arctic is disappearing....the glacers are retreating at an alarmingly rapid geological rate a threat to the store of clean water for billions of people. 1934 is not even the tip of any well thought argument against the rapidly worsening warming trend.

"An experiment is a orderly procedure carried out with the goal of verifying, falsifying, or establishing the validity of a hypothesis. Experiments provide insight into cause-and-effect by demonstrating what outcome occurs when a particular factor is manipulated. Experiments vary greatly in their goal and scale, but always rely on repeatable procedure and logical analysis of the results."

If Fair Game finds that explanation 'idiotic', it reflects on his understanding of science.

You actually believe you are a scientist when you are not one iota.

How about a world war that kills off 2 thirds of the world population. Maybe we need to go a little more letís take it down to 1 eighth of where it is now.

I don't post 'evolution is an experiment', gcaveman1 does. Experiments are done by intent, with as much control as possible, they aren't done by nature.

If you disagree, then why don't you post a definition of experiment?
