Really... Try it!:-) You will find that Global Warming causes everything one can think of; which makes CAGW... unfalsifiable.

koolaid forgot about fish .. as the planet consistently warmed over the past few decades, fish have been pushed further and further towards the world's poles—upsetting ecosystems around the globe.

"This study shows that ocean warming has already affected global fisheries in the past four decades, highlighting the immediate need to develop adaptation plans to minimize the effect of such warming on the economy and food security of coastal communities, particularly in tropical regions."

Yes they have, but while it is not proven completely these have their seeds from the gulf and like Sandy, a degree or so difference in ocean temp can turn a bad storm into a super storm. Without man's contribution to global warming, weather was halfway predictable now its as erratic as your posts.
Weather is always chaotic, even without man's contribution to atmospheric CO2. We oppose your climate change mitigation schemes because there's no experimental evidence it can work or won't cause more harm than good.

Yes, the last couple of weeks have been witness to an unpresedented sea change in the level of discourse curtesy of you and your friends from TN. Observing the birth of this new religion over these past years has been very interesting. May you and your fellow CAGW Apostles find peace in your dogma.

This is an open statement to all the Apostles of CAGW. I was once an Apostate who had left the fold in search of a new truth. I believe I am ready to return and accept The CO2 Knob as our salvation.

One might ask...'What made you see the error of your way, my child?'
The answer is GOOGLE.
Yes, I typed the following and all my questions were answered:
Global warming and Mental Illness.

Yes! Praise the CO2 Knob! Studies show CAGW CAUSES MENTAL ILLNESS.
This explaines everything. If CAGW believers are mentally ill then it is likely that CAGW CAUSED IT... This proves CAGW is real.

It is good to be back among The True Believers.

Only a true moron would think that "mitigation" would make something worse or "do more harm than good," in your words.

mit·i·gate (mtgt)
v. mit·i·gat·ed, mit·i·gat·ing, mit·i·gates
v.tr.
To moderate (a quality or condition) in force or intensity; alleviate. See Synonyms at relieve.
v.intr.
To become milder.

Unless you think that "alleviate," "moderate," or "milder" are synonymous with "to cause harm."

LOL

And I tell the truth here: I am trading my Ford F250 dually on a new F350 dually with the biggest diesel engine Ford makes today. I will strip off the economy-robbing pollution garbage on the engine just like I have every other vehicle I have ever owned (yep, got the warranty concerns covered too). I have a huge toy hauler for ATV's and camping. Then, off to Wyoming, Montana, and South Dakota to scout spots for hunting antelope and mule deer. Oh... I will also do a great deal of fishing and varmint hunting while on this expedition. After, I will return to my home in the country and my comfy office in a downtown high rise. Do I have a point? No, other than watching the global whiners rant about what a demon people like me are. Since I have as many (probably more) degrees than the most educated of the whiners, I will simply "dismiss" and "fire" them... as if that means anything on an anonymous and public forum. It is so funny how emotional global whiners are, and the folks they label as "deniers" maintain their sense of humor. Brian_G, keep up the good comments and posts.
