What a bunch of baloney you depraved souls exude. Of course I believe what the scientists have measured. Believers like you folks more "believe" in what Limbaugh or Watts have to say than what real scientists find. We know where the religion is. When you folks throw out the science of course all that is left for you to understand is the religion.
oh my 'bozo', you are the one who tends to exude baloney. your theory is wrong and corrupt and has no, nada, none, never ever been proven. who was around a hundred, a thousand, or ten thousand years ago measuring these facts that you base your religion on? who believes 'bozo'? at least limbaugh is a good entertainer who brings up some good points, watts is an excellent researcher who has the one thing warmers like you lack. yes 'bozo', I am talking about common sense. pick some up if you ever get a chance. I know that must be a scary thing for you to think about but it is way better than thinking about the mile or so of ice that used to cover north america. who is throwing science out 'bozo'? I know that history does not compare to the highly intelligent things that 'litesong' says, but really 'bozo', you are the depraved soul. nature causes the weather, man causes nuclear accidents, if I were you I would devote my time on what is going on in japan in regards to the pacific ocean. all that aside, stay warm my friend. only use warmer approved heat, and pray the first day of winter brings a warming spell.

Comparing temps. from Alaska against the lower 48, as if things even out, is absurd to begin with. The real problem, which you've managed to ignore, is that it isn't just the lower 48 states that are below average.
The whole continent of North America is well below average. Here's a few examples from different regions of Canada that show, if you bother to look, temps. steadily 20F or more below average. Worst part is there's no indication of it letting up !

You're ignoring that out discussion was on higher-than-average temps in Alaska.

What all that is anyway is natural variability, which may be amplified by global warming.

I was answering an idiot denier who thinks that stepping out his door at any latitude proves or disproves AGW. If it's 70* in Nome and -45* in St. Paul, it isn't proof of anything, but it might make us ask questions.

And your point is?

Nome is at or about the 64th parallel. Do you or the other fools have a problem with that.

I have seen temperature differences of 50* over 50 miles. You can find freezing and swimming weather in Florida if you look in the right place at the right time.

Weather, fools, is not climate. Climate is, however, weather.

The same repeated crap day in day out from the deniers. The main points of attack are always the same, no Greenie is entitled to be rich. They have to stereotype them as modern day jungle boys. If any of them amount to more than a tree house then they are just not credible. Well "HELLO" in the new world order (using a Bushism here) Greenies will be the rich elite not the fossil fuel barons.

Second favourite point of contention is try and debunk any science on the basis it's just a scam for funding research. Forgetting all other discoveries made by man that improved our quality of life. This one, has thousands of scientists around the world conspiring to defraud us and we should listen to the flat earth people instead.

Limpballs is a liar. Watts is a number cruncher, nothing more. Common sense in not too common in the ranks of the deniers. BTW, it is not "my" theory, it is the theory of dedicated climate scientists who do more than mouth platitudes. Is your shift key broken?

I think people in Oregon believe in global warming,mostly.
==========
Oregon, once touted as a model for President Obama's health care law, signed up just 44 people for insurance through November, despite spending more than $300 million on its state-based exchange.

The state’s exchange had the fewest sign-ups in the nation, according to a new report today by the Department of Health and Human Services.

The weak number of sign-ups undercuts two major defenses of Obamacare from its supporters.

One defense was that state-based exchanges were performing a lot better than the federal healthcare.gov website servicing 36 states. But Oregon's website problems have forced the state to rely on paper applications to sign up participants.

Another defense of the Obama administration has attributed the troubled rollout of Obamacare to the obstruction of Republican governors who wanted to see the law fail as well as a lack of funding.

But Oregon is a Democratic state that embraced Obamacare early and enthusiastically. Its outreach effort, which included a folk-style music video featuring a singer playing an acoustic guitar against a colorful and scenic backdrop, had been praised among the law's supporters.

There must be a connection between Obamacare and global warming, but I'll be damned if I can figure it out.

Maybe it's like the connection between conservatives and progress. Or maybe conservatives and fiscal responsibility. Or conservatives and justifiable war.

Hard to say....

BTW: President Johnson was informed in 1965 about the dangers in increasing the amount of CO2.
