When 1 degree C is a big deal then perhaps the best chart is one that accentuates growth of those proportions.

Not one the hides it.

Typical right whiners hunting ways to deny the truth of Global Warming. Why is that?

Did they say what caused the warming?

You forgot that ....

"While year-to-year changes in temperature often reflect natural climatic variations such as El Niño/La Niña events...."

I am very careful to argue MAN MADE global warming...specifically: ALL WARMING IS CAUSED BY MAN....

Fox Falls For Tabloid "Science"

Fox News is promoting a report from a British tabloid to claim that new data shows "Global Warming [Is] Over." But the agency that released the data explained that the tabloid report is "misleading" because it is based on a short-term period that obscures the long-term upward trend in global temperatures.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty is another green-leaning Republican state leader. He founded and co-chaired the National Governors Association's Securing a Clean Energy Future task force along with former Kansas Gov.(and Democrat) Kathleen Sebelius (now serving the Obama administration as Secretary of Health and Human Services) and he led talks among 45 state leaders to develop programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. While Pawlenty isn't afraid to appeal to the base every now and then — he backpedaled on the idea of a cap-and-trade system while on the Glenn Beck program and argued that humans didn't have much of an impact on global warming — it's important to remember that at least he was for it before he was against it.
yes. Pawlenty..one of the few real conservatives left in the GOP and you fools tossed him aside like you did Huntsmen....

the current iteration of the GOP is running headlong over the far right wing cliffs of insanity...

Global warming mathematics...

"Temperature is a macroscopic variable that represents the amount of thermal energy in a system. So if we are doing any temperature comparisons we must use the Kelvin temperature scale. Assuming the average temperature of Earth is 15 C (288K) and that the temperature has increased by 1 degree C (1 K) then the percentage increase in energy (or temperature if you like) is 1/288 = 0.35% or 3.5 parts per thousand."
"John"
"John" is a moron because 1/288 rise K has the same negative effects of 1 degree C.

not much real science in that study...we don't even know what drives the el nino effect and why it fluctuates so, yet you believe these fools that use it as a basis for denying what our thermometers clearly tell us?

you sound like perfect religious cult material....

I thought John Huntsman was one who could have won Democratic votes. But he wasn't far right enough. The Teaparty faction of the Republican party is ruining any chances of winning the White House for a long time to come.

GSS survey On Affirmative Action....

QUESTION:
'What do you think the chances are these days that a white person won't get a job or promotion while an equally or less qualified black person gets one instead?"

In 1990
RESULTS: "slightly over 40 percent" of whites answered "somewhat likely"

in 2008
RESULTS: "one in five" whites answered "VERY LIKELY"

FOX News? FOX should be taken to task for calling the sht it serves news. Today the focus there is ObamaCare, Keystone with a sprinkle of cruise ship slamming.

It's political entertainment according to former FOX superstar Glenn Beck, designed to pleasure fragile, elderly, white men.
