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

You came up with the accusation that AGW was a fraud and that the scientists were getting rich off it. The burden of proof is on you to back that up.
But, really, you have answered the question. You failed to produce any evidence for your statement.
And as you say I can say anything I want as fact. Do you think your one of those cut above all? And you really really answered the question you are a mental midget with no burden of proof other than cut and paste scientific science fiction useless babble. Now put on your big boy, girl pants and do show your entire peer reviewed published work.
Just curious are you one of those ambulance chasing lawyers?

Peer reviewed science fiction involved the theory of humans with 6 toes. His peers involved in the experiment, how many of them had 6 toes?

An example of large lies by "large lying language":

The artic(sic--similar to 'tiny-minded anne') only loses ice because or the plates moving and shifting the ice away probably. And I'm sure the Ice would return. And the animals walking across the ice wear it out anyway.

'large lying language' would be funny, except it is also a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AND alleged & proud threatener.

You may be large in language, but you are very, very, very small in scientific reasoning. Others have already pointed out your troglodytic prejudices.

"...the animals walking across the ice wear it out..."??? That's about the funniest thing I've ever seen here!

OK, so if polar bears (or whatever other animals you propose) have been walking across the ice pack for millenia, WHY DIDN'T THEY "WEAR IT OUT" BEFORE NOW? I mean, DUH!!! ROFLMAO!

And ice only melts because "the plates moving and shifting the ice away probably"??? That's the 2nd funniest thing I've seen here.

Moving & shifting cause melting? I'm LSHMSFOAIDMT! Yeah, temperature has NOTHING to do with it. Sure.

The only "probably" here is that your thought processes are composed of equine excrement.

It used to be very cold, but the bears move slowely, so they make the ice more malleble overtime, it taken time to make it malleble to wearing out. And the earth is only 7'000 or 6'000 years old.

Friction takes away the cold. The Ice is what makes it cold, so the Ice wearing away makes it colder.

Wow. You sure are good for belly laughs, large.

Let me explain something to you, though. This is a science forum. If you think the earth is only 6000 or 7000 years old, you need to be on a religion forum.

Huh???

More laughs, large. You've brightened my day.

Ice wearing away makes it colder? OK, so it should be getting colder in the Arctic because the ice is "wearing away," right? So why is all the permafrost melting (releasing more incredibly dangerous methane in the process)?

Hmmm. I think maybe litesong has you completely figured out...

He told me he thinks the Earth is just 6000 years old. You're not going to get ANY science from this guy.

Care to try again?

Evidence: Climate change: How do we know?

The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.

The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is very likely human-induced and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented in the past 1,300 years.1

Earth-orbiting satellites and other technological advances have enabled scientists to see the big picture, collecting many different types of information about our planet and its climate on a global scale. Studying these climate data collected over many years reveal the signals of a changing climate.
Certain facts about Earth's climate are not in dispute:

The heat-trapping nature of carbon dioxide and other gases was demonstrated in the mid-19th century.2Their ability to affect the transfer of infrared energy through the atmosphere is the scientific basis of many JPL-designed instruments, such as AIRS. Increased levels of greenhouse gases must cause the Earth to warm in response.

Ice cores drawn from Greenland, Antarctica, and tropical mountain glaciers show that the Earth’s climate responds to changes in solar output, in the Earth’s orbit, and in greenhouse gas levels. They also show that in the past, large changes in climate have happened very quickly, geologically-speaking: in tens of years, not in millions or even thousands.3
The evidence for rapid climate change is compelling:

• Sea level rise
Global sea level rose about 17 centimeters (6.7 inches) in the last century. The rate in the last decade, however, is nearly double that of the last century.4

• Global temperature rise
All three major global surface temperature reconstructions show that Earth has warmed since 1880.5 Most of this warming has occurred since the 1970s, with the 20 warmest years having occurred since 1981 and with all 10 of the warmest years occurring in the past 12 years.6 Even though the 2000s witnessed a solar output decline resulting in an unusually deep solar minimum in 2007-2009, surface temperatures continue to increase.7

• Warming oceans
The oceans have absorbed much of this increased heat, with the top 700 meters (about 2,300 feet) of ocean showing warming of 0.302 degrees Fahrenheit since 1969.8

• Shrinking ice sheets
The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have decreased in mass. Data from NASA's Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment show Greenland lost 150 to 250 cubic kilometers (36 to 60 cubic miles) of ice per year between 2002 and 2006, while Antarctica lost about 152 cubic kilometers (36 cubic miles) of ice between 2002 and 2005.

• Declining Arctic sea ice
Both the extent and thickness of Arctic sea ice has declined rapidly over the last several decades.9

• Glacial retreat
Glaciers are retreating almost everywhere around the world — including in the Alps, Himalayas, Andes, Rockies, Alaska and Africa.

• Extreme events
The number of record high temperature events in the United States has been increasing, while the number of record low temperature events has been decreasing, since 1950.

• Ocean acidification
Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the acidity of surface ocean waters has increased by about 30 percent.12,13 This increase is the result of humans emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and hence more being absorbed into the oceans. The amount of carbon dioxide absorbed by the upper layer of the oceans is increasing by about 2 billion tons per year.14,15
