If global warming means more extreme weather of all types, then it means more extremely beautiful summer weather too.

You no longer have to pack up and travel to that seaside summer holiday you always dreamed of. Now you can sit on your sofa and watch TV while rising ocean levels to bring that beach to you. What's not to love about global warming?
Oh please

I will believe in Global "get rich of the weather" Warming when you cannot look back in history and find the exact same weather patterns! When we see something new, new for our planet, then maybe they will have a "story" to tell.

Each of the past 27 years has been warmer than average (based on the average from 1961-1990). In fact, according to NOAA’s data set, each month for more than 28 years has had a global average temperature that was above the 20th century average, meaning that anyone younger than 28 years old has never experienced a cooler-than-average month on earth.

Are you old? Do you know about the new story of 90 million tons of man-made ghg emissions every day into our atmosphere?
Oh please

If you think that the last 27 years or that the 20th century is all there is to our history on this planet...well...you just might not be the one to discuss "global warming" with. Ever heard of the Ice Age? It is more than just a kid's movie, really!

I'm also not considered "old" just yet...but I do hope to be someday!:)

Are you a born idiot or did you have to go to a fossil fuel school to learn it?

Your denier certificate does not make you a scientist.

However, climate scientists have been able to reconstruct Earth’s temperature history back to the end of the last Ice Age, revealing that the planet today is warmer than it has been during 70 to 80 percent of the time over the last 11,300 years.

Have you heard of climate scientists?

Nope, dust is not a gas. Particulate matter, perhaps. So, are you claiming that past climate precludes man from causing global warming?
never said dust was a gas only pointing out that it can have the same cause and effect , but of course you believers already know this but refuse to tell the truth that ghg is all a bunch of bull. was man here say 20 million years ago ? NO and were there both weather and climate changes during this same time period ? YES and who was missing MAN ! just proves that the planet has seen and been through MANY changes without mans help or being here and continues to do so .
however as posted before that the agreed on percentage is in the area of 5 % which is less than a drop in the big bucket of this planet and has little to no effect on a global scale .

and cooling now , so many predictions about an up coming mini ice age . oh of course all brought on by ghg and climate change just like every other weather climate event for the last 25 years . warmer have no shame they blame everything on ghg climate weather nonsense yet have NO PROOF !

So you come here to lie!

You called the dust "ghg!" The second g stands for gas. I posted information and then asked later if you learned from my posts.

Clearly, you don't learn any new concept. Don't worry, however, you are among your denier friends who are just like you.

Don't let the rats bite you.

Please provide a reference from a credible source that the earth is cooling. Make sure that you take into account air, surface, and ocean temperatures (don't cherry pick your information).

well well what do we read today in the Wash. free beacon some warmer group held a rally in DC and how sad NO ONE SHOWED UP ! Thats right not 1 person , looks like the cats out of the bag that gh climate weather change is exactly what it sound like BOVINE GASSSSSSSSSS !!!
But on the bright side NOAA has reported that the ice cap in and around the south polar regions is and continues to grow and expand , guess all the ice melt from the north pole had to go somewhere . so much for rising oceans .

I am still waiting for a report from a credible organization that says that the earth is cooling.
Have you checked the ratio between the Antarctic sea ice increase and the Arctic ice decrease?

in a way dust is a ghg was my quote not that it is a 100% ghg and to be fair ghg is what greenhous gas . wonder what would happen to your greenhouse if it were covered in volcanic dust ???? to much blot out the sun ,go cold or just a little act as a giant warming solar panel . so in a way it makes dust a ghg after all you warmers call everything thats in the air floating around the planet ( from cow farts to lint ) ghg so why not dust ? what you mad because a 81 year old fart thought of it before one of your so called over edumactaded science brains did .

no i just don't want to read the biased bull from both sides , i can look outside and see for myself the the planets not on fire and the cities are not below sea level .which i sorry to say make you and the rest of the believers very ignorant because you can't and don't think for yourselves but need to have other do it for you .
