Looks interesting.

The most comprehensive review of changes to extreme rainfall yet has confirmed the link between extreme rainfall intensity and global atmospheric temperature, with annual rainfall highs intensifying by around 7% per 1°C warming. University of Adelaide’s Seth Westra and his teammates called on 8326 weather stations across the Earth’s surface with over 30 years’ data from the period between 1900 and 2009.“The real innovation in this study is the strength of the data set we used,” Seth told me.

No thanks necessary. If it weren't for you I could not have walloped the wallop10 again and again.

as for language big words DON'T make a big man , but a big heart does . i have always found that if you speak plainly then all can understand . sorry the problem with some over educated folks they think that if they speak like some professor of language then people will think of them as such , sorry just means your full of your self in your own mind . i wonder do you speak to everyone like a language teacher ? wife , kids , co workers , store clerk ? or do you just silent as you believe everyone is below you and not worth your time .
Good evening.

If you want to act on climate change, tell scientists you want to see experiments that show a change in global climate temperature. Then wait.

According to radiative physics and decades of laboratory measurements, increased CO2 in the atmosphere is expected to absorb more infrared radiation as it escapes back out to space. In 1970, NASA launched the IRIS satellite measuring infrared spectra. In 1996, the Japanese Space Agency launched the IMG satellite which recorded similar observations. Both sets of data were compared to discern any changes in outgoing radiation over the 26 year period (Harries 2001). What they found was a drop in outgoing radiation at the wavelength bands that greenhouse gases such as CO2 and methane (CH4) absorb energy. The change in outgoing radiation was consistent with theoretical expectations. Thus the paper found "direct experimental evidence for a significant increase in the Earth's greenhouse effect". This result has been confirmed by subsequent papers using data from later satellites (Griggs 2004, Chen 2007).

Fair Game gave us an incomplete quote, the sentence about 'experimental evidence' concludes: "that is consistent with concerns over radiative forcing of climate." So, the experiment isn't on climate change mitigation, it's on light spectra. I've never claimed light spectrum hasn't been experimentally measured; my argument is about the lack of experiments for climate change mitigation.

More useless diarrhea from the "pinheadlitesout".
Get that issue and your diaper rash solved and maybe your allergies will be cured. Try to stop sticking your head up spacedoutblues behind and that may help as well.
