[QUOTE who="lyin' brian"]The climate might warm, cool.......[/QUOTE]

Hey......been waiting for the toxic topix AGW denier cycle to return us to pre-20th century temperatures ever since the sun reached its hundred plus year TSI low for its overly long period & all the cold cyclical ocean patterns turned negative.
toxic topix AGW deniers promised.

Hey..... if toxic topix AGW deniers can't do that, how 'bout getting the 1980 Arctic sea ice to come back, since toxic topix AGW deniers told us the sea ice increased 60%(which it didn't). toxic topix AGW deniers got ta manufacture & hold on to 10,000 cubic kilometers of Arctic sea ice by September 2014........

toxic topix AGW deniers promised.

No I don't sit in judgement of anyone like most here do simply because the person does not agree with their views of the so called x spurts of global warming . I only observe and comment , all of you make your own bed before the Lord . As I have posted He gives all of us the ability to choose right from wrong ( free will )and putting science above him is wrong . But I would venture from the post here that most here say they believe in God but only give lip service to his house and would rather wish that his believers would just go away in order to make their own lives less bothered with His words . and like it or not Al gore is a fake ,money grabber, lier , PERVERT who DOES NOT PRACTICE WHAT HE PREACHES .

Petty.. pathetic..

You are playing god with your judgments of others. You are in deep trouble therefore here and in the hereafter..

Right now, it's getting warmer.

I recognize that. You don't. You're an idiot. I'm not.

You do.
You do.
Yes, and He gave us a brain to determine right from wrong.
Science cannot be above God because everything is of God.

Al Gore may be all those things, but it is not for you to decide. I am thinking that your statement of his perversion lies closer to home.

Speaking of experts..

Mammal body size decreased significantly during at least two ancient global warming events. A new finding that suggests a similar outcome is possible in response to human-caused climate change, according to a University of Michigan paleontologist and his colleagues.

The rest of us (heretics) are simply saying we do not share the same faith in prophecies based on your "Anthropogenic Carbon Dioxide Driven Catastrophic Global Climate Disruption Orthodoxy".

Carbon dioxide (chemical formula CO 2 ) is a naturally occurring chemical compound composed of two oxygen atoms covalently bonded to a single carbon atom.(Joseph Black..1750's)
I have yet to see the words "blaspheme or heretic" in the science books I possess...
Perhaps were not on the same page ?
I have one...you don't have a book
that may be what's leading to a discrepancy in scientific understanding...I do....you don't ...

Because we put greenhouse gas into the air when we burn fossil fuel? A radiation so insignificant, it's invisible and you can only detect with supercold sensors? The human body radiates heat, our eyes would be swamped by our own body heat if they could see IR. CO2 reflects back or absorbs a small amount of heat, our bodies heat makes that undetectable to the naked eye.

You can detect it with a hand-held thermometer.

Supercold sensors? Sounds like Gord. He was an idiot, you know.

Global Warming

“Global warming” refers to the global-average temperature increase that has been observed over the last one hundred years or more. But to many politicians and the public, the term carries the implication that mankind is responsible for that warming. This website describes evidence from my group’s government-funded research that suggests global warming is mostly natural, and that the climate system is quite insensitive to humanity’s greenhouse gas emissions and aerosol pollution.

In that, Roy Spencer goes against the consensus, but at least he understands the basic physics, and points out buffoonish nonsense when he sees it.

Right, I never claimed we haven't invented tools to detect IR radiation, just it's invisible. And I explained that's because of human metabolism, our body heat distorts any IR signal from global warming to our eyes.

Ever notice how cold blooded animals use IR and bats use sonar? And no animal or plants mitigates climate change.

Which is bullshit.

Even the AGW sceptic scientists like Spencer go to great lengths to point out it's bullshit.

Why don't you just admit it was bullshit?

Because you're lyin' brian.

You'll just post the same crap again later as if nothing happened.

I have been told that to preform the same action over and over expecting different results borders on insanity...
His insightful and imaginative posts would seem to fall into that category...
Caps lock causes climate change?...Well, that certainly is a exacting indicator of mental function....

Man mitigates climate change.

Note Green Troll's comment above.

You're an idiot. He's not. In fact, he's very intelligent.

This is where yall differ!
