You need remedial math as well as remedial science. Oops, it cant be remedial as you never had any science instruction in the first place.

It's a perfect day here in sunny Paradise, 1592, the thermometer was invented yesterday and it reads the equivalent of what will later be known as a balmy 25º C, which can't be considered "extreme" now or ever, in any known language.

Our Eskimo friends have recorded low temperatures, which are considered extreme in anyone's language, and the same applies to Bedouins and residents of Death Valley.

First, Eskimos are not your friends based on your comments on the native people.

Second, you are wrong to say "the same applies to Bedouins and residents of Death Valley" on the same account but also they experience high {not low} extreme temperatures.

Conservative fundamentalists don't have to worry about legitimate facts and proven science. When they screw up they just blame it on the "atheist welfare-sucking anti-American liberals".

The party of blame. Never take responsibility for their own actions. It is easier to blame than it is to solve. How many viable solutions have they produced. For example, healthcare is very problematic in the US. They condemn what they call "Obamacare" (Really almost identical to what they proposed during the Clinton administration as they smacked down Hillary.) yet have no viable plan to replace it with. Oh, sure they rattle on about tort reform, which is an expense, but a minor one. Or removing the restriction of State control, a direct violation of giving more control to the States that they tout.

Instead of trying to make political hay out of every problem, why don't they work to help solve those problems. It is Party over Country.

Back to global warming, they put all their efforts into disproving for political purposes instead of being honest and looking at the established science. I really expect that the majority of them really believes that global warming is real but promote the denier mantra because they believe they can garner votes by exhibiting contrariness.

Another deniergate: wattsup misrepresents the works of Shein et al. As you see below:
Revisiting the Statewide Climate Extremes for the United States--Evaluating Existing Extremes, Archived Data, and New Observations
New all-time extreme climate records have been set in several states over the past few years. These records highlighted a need to review the existing statewide climate extremes tables maintained by the NOAA National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). Also, since these tables were last updated, NCDC has greatly extended its digital data record into the past for many locations and has applied improved quality assurance processes to its archived data, revealing several potential new record values. To ensure the records maintained in the statewide climate extremes tables accurately reflect the most current and valid data available, the records were re-evaluated. The all-time maximum and minimum temperature, all-time greatest 24-hr precipitation and snow fall, and all-time greatest snow depth for each of the 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands were manually examined to determine their validity, accuracy, accessibility, and provenance. NCDC's data holdings were scoured for values that might exceed established records, and the validity of each potentially record-breaking observation was evaluated. The revised extremes tables were vetted by the National Weather Service, Regional Climate Centers, and State Climatologists to ensure agreement. In conjunction with this revision, a new state climate extremes evaluation process has been established to formally consider any potential challenges to the existing records and update the records tables as necessary.
CAPSULE: Ensuring valid climate extremes for each state requires digging into the archives as well as establishing a new, objective methodology for evaluating challengers.
Revised: April 13, 2012

Evaluating Statewide Climate Extremes for the United States
The NOAA National Climatic Data Center maintains tables for temperature and precipitation extremes in each of the U.S. States. However, many of these tables were several years out of date and therefore did not include a number of recent record-setting meteorological observations. Furthermore, there was no formal process for ensuring the currency of the tables or evaluating observations that might tie or break a statewide climate record. This paper describes the evaluation and revision of the statewide climate extremes tables for all-time maximum and minimum temperature, greatest 24-hr precipitation and snow fall, and greatest snow depth (the five basic climate elements observed on a daily basis by the NOAA Cooperative Weather Network). The process resulted in the revision of 40 percent of the values listed in those tables, and underscored both the necessity of manual quality assurance methods as well as the importance of continued climate monitoring and data rescue activities to ensure that potential record values are not overlooked.

So how do these lab coat consultants of climate blame explain the tropical fossils under the melting polar caps and on every other continent, if this climate of TODAY has NEVER happened before?

Think: our climate consists of events. Scientists study today the climate that's changing under the heavy hand of ever-increasing man-made greenhouse gases. How easy is that, a moving target that's globe-size!!

They also study the past by observing the footprints left by the previous events. Then they use what they know as science and mathematics to predict the future climate events.

How easy is that? Then, you don't appreciate their work, or do you?

Funny that these scientists who study the past by observing the footprints left by previous events start their studies after the 1930s. Seems that was a pretty important footprint.

Every year when Nobel prizes are given, are you surprised that people had been doing these things?

When you read a science journal, are you surprised that people had been working on all those things?

Joe Romm: the Earth has warmed only a bit more than one degree Fahrenheit since the catastrophic Dust Bowl (of the 1930s) — and we are poised to warm an astounding nine to eleven degrees Fahrenheit this century if we stay anywhere near our current greenhouse gas emissions path.

All you are saying is that you still have faith in what the experts are saying. Forget that because there isn't any consensus anyways. None and here is proof:
If unstoppable warming were true, wouldn't the millions of good and honest people in the global scientific community be acting like their kids were doomed as well? It was all exaggerated and the world has walked away from CO2 mitigation anyways.
More proof of exaggeration: Find me one single IPCC report of "crisis" that says "certain" or "imminent", instead maybe and likely.
Get ahead of the curve, the issue of climate crisis is dead.

It seems the partisans have taken to heart Nancy Reagan's "Just say no." Their loyalty to party line preachers is EXACTLY the same thing as a fundamentalist's faith in Creationism. No matter what the facts, figures and evidences demonstrate, they will not budge from their paranoia and prejudice. You can't fix stupid.

No, you can't fix stupid. In my area, that includes members of the city council as well as the head of the Republican Party who have stated that global warming is nothing but a United Nations plot to subjugate our particular little city. What amazes and saddens me is that voters actually buy that crap.
