I love proving all of you warmers wrong with logic,common sense and satire . As you all believe in you short term science anyone with a snails brain could see that what you all believe in is hores ship !! More and more of the planets reasonable thinking peoples don't believe in ghg's ,globull warming or climate change . There have been doom sayers since the dawn of man and so far the only one that has been right was Noah and if you believe he was guided by God ! So what makes any of you warmers think you can predict the doom and gloom for this planet with help from corrupted men and their false god of science !!!!!!!!!!

Blah blah you lack humility to be liked by your god..

Anyway.. one of your alleged competition just published:

We assess climate impacts of global warming using ongoing observations and paleoclimate data. We use Earth’s measured energy imbalance, paleoclimate data, and simple representations of the global carbon cycle and temperature to define emission reductions needed to stabilize climate and avoid potentially disastrous impacts on today’s young people, future generations, and nature. A cumulative industrial-era limit of ~500 GtC fossil fuel emissions and 100 GtC storage in the biosphere and soil would keep climate close to the Holocene range to which humanity and other species are adapted. Cumulative emissions of ~1000 GtC, sometimes associated with 2°C global warming, would spur “slow” feedbacks and eventual warming of 3–4°C with disastrous consequences. Rapid emissions reduction is required to restore Earth’s energy balance and avoid ocean heat uptake that would practically guarantee irreversible effects. Continuation of high fossil fuel emissions, given current knowledge of the consequences, would be an act of extraordinary witting intergenerational injustice. Responsible policymaking requires a rising price on carbon emissions that would preclude emissions from most remaining coal and unconventional fossil fuels and phase down emissions from conventional fossil fuels.

The 18 authors cite 259 references.. Anyone can read the full paper in PLOS ONE.

You love what again? LOL.

Do you have a car? a computer, air conditioner, have you used antibiotics? If so, you must believe in science. Divest yourself of these demonic possessions!
Of course there are those who do not think science put men on the moon! LOL

.. weird as in evil ways.. Brainles sympathies lie with Jew and Arab exterminators while ignoring the present extermination of Arabs and neglecting Arabs did not commit the extermination of Jews.
When have I mentioned or referenced Arabs? Do you know the Jewish population of Damascus, Baghdad, Jeddah and Jerusalem before 1,400 years ago before Allah's revelation to the Prophet Muhammad? Except Jerusalem, I'll bet their populations decreased. Palestinian populations have increased, that's how you can tell Israel isn't committing extermination.

The present extermination is directed at Hamas who hides weapons and ammunitions in mosques, committing the war crime of militarizing religious sites and hiding behind civilians. The present extermination is directed at missile fire directed at Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, not against Arabs or Persians. Shia Hamas or Sunni ISIS, the are the same enemy as Al Qaeda.

Our god is different ? or are you a non believer ? which would explain your belief in your science god ! judge not least ye be judged ! ok so we get off all fossil fuels and anything that produces carbon what does your science propose to do about natural planet made ghg's made by the planet or solar activity ?? which as we all know the planet and sun produce who knows how many more time ghg's than anything by man !!!!!!!!!!

As reported, other than "at home in lynching county" has reported:

This is the coldest June ever recorded at the station(not Antarctica)......
Other unusual features of the June temperature record are an unusual excess of sunlight hours (11.8 hours rather than the normal 7.4 hours), and unusually light wind conditions.

Dumont d’Urville Station...... no other weather station for 1000km in any direction.
//////////
"at home in lynching county" needs lots more data to extrapolate over all of Antarctica.

Home in Lincoln County extrapolates what exactly ?
I find his extrapolations hard to follow...and the supporting mathematics
whew...
what is the baseline?.....what is the relationship direction?
Perhaps he just knows ?.......well that saves a lot of work... science regulated to the dust bin ......

I suppose anyone with the most meager science background might find your posts an insult .
I find your posts (agenda) largely humorous in nature...
What surprises me is that anyone bothers to respond to your posts at all.....
The fact that you have been given everything you have asked and avoid any that
would prove a baseline for any measureable debate I find strange.
I believe most understand your position regarding the subject....
