[QUOTE who="lyin' brian"]Not one single species has been extinguished by man made global climate change.[/QUOTE]

Of course, "lyin' brian" has no science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc in its poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa & also has errors of 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, 3000 TIMES, 73 million TIMES, & 2.5+ trillion TIMES. He has been told of AGW extinct species & promptly stonewalls, saying it was other factors. "lyin' brian" has no background to stonewall. A second reason shows it's definitive statement is too hastily made. An undiscovered species could have been destroyed by AGW.

Yaí see? Thatís why we needed to change form global warming to climate change. if we had stuck with GW, people could measure and prove wrong. If we go with CC, who the heck is going to know what weíre talking about and we can continue to fool some of the people all of the time. If not all of the time, at least long enough to get regulations in place and then we can find a new phantom menace.

Chicago(area-606 km2)

The Arctic has been warming for more than a half century over millions of square kilometers around the North Pole, due to AGW energy enhanced warm fronts forcing into the region. The last 4+months, NOT one day, over those millions of square kilometers, was down to normal temperatures. Temperatures were as high as 16degC(29degF) over normal(& the normal already included earlier & present global warming). So much energy is in the Arctic, it readily forced Arctic cold fronts south onto Canada & the U.S.

"The United Nations' latest report on climate change contains plenty of dire warnings about the adverse impact "human interference with the climate system" is having on everything from sea levels to crop yields to violent conflicts." People may not agree on the science of climate change, but uncertainty about the future is no excuse for failing to prepare for the worst. "The dam of orthodoxy is cracking," Simon Jenkins wrote in The Guardian on Monday. "If Rome is burning, there is no point in endlessly retuning Nero's fiddle."
So now it's adapt while we watch Rome burn and in the meantime deniers try and throw more fuel on the fire.

Better to be unoriginal & accurate, than original & inaccurate. However, sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liars are neither original or accurate.

It's only when you see posts like this, you realize that deniers have no f...g idea what global warming means. To them its something on some far off distant planet that will never affect them. Yet each year they get to experience this bubble of ignorance leaking just that little bit more.

Speaking of more food...
The new IPCC report claims reducing CO2 emissions will help to provide food security for the future, but the opposite is true. Hundreds of scientific papers prove increased CO2 fertilization markedly increases photosynthetic rates and biomass production of all the world's major crops, in addition to increasing resistance to drought. And there is also the significant body of work that reveals that as the atmosphere's CO2 concentration rises, the various temperatures at which different plants photosynthesize most proficiently rise right along with it.
IPCC decarbonization policies will decrease agricultural production, and lead to more malnourishment and poverty due to higher energy and food prices.

I went and checked for that "significant body of work" in the origin of your cut'n paste, and those links were papers cited regarding optimum temperature for photosynthesis.

So when they are cited by a fossil fuel funded report, they are a significant body of work, but when I ask you to look at them, you rubbish them?

You really are a horse's ass.

The scientifically uneducated public is easy prey for the denial industry, largely propped up by the fossil fuel industry. It is rather pathetic how some of the politicians utilize this ignorance for election coffers and votes. They should be fined for malpractice.

Why yes, I do remember that post. But first, what's the beef about "fossil fuel funded" reports? You said it's not big deal. Sheesh... need a link for that?

But, just the same, you didn't connect the sources (the second of which doesn't load) to the graphic. Do try to be more coherent, and keep all your posts together. Otherwise, you're just another Spaceballs spewing little disconnected factoids.

If you care to try again (and can be civil), I'll review your "science"... just the same... where was the article from that BBC site to which the graphic was referred? That would be a nice start... and was actually my first question.
