I have work to do and the time has come for me to depart these precincts. It therefore behooves me to summarize what has happened here today.
We have seen deniers present the same old falsehoods over and over. I have repeatedly countered their falsehoods with explanations of the science involved, often providing citations to sources to support my claims.
In all of these cases, only once did a denier respond with evidence, which, upon investigation, proved to be incorrect, as I demonstrated by providing the entire quote in question.
One denier presented a link to an article that contradicted his claim; another denier presented a link to another denier. Not impressive.
In general, what we have seen is massive ignorance of basic science, a refusal to base arguments on evidence, lots of wild claims with no support, and a flood of opinions.
All of this serves to debunk the common suspicion that all the deniers who show up on blogs like this are being paid to do so by the fossil fuel industry. That suspicion is disproven by the behavior of deniers here; if they were professionals, they wouldn't make such dumb claims.
It's not science unless you doubt it.
But doubting is done best by minds 'that have a clue'.

It's not science unless science prove science to be incorrect, Theyuse science to make corrections to show science is incorrect. It's a great thing to have science experts the media wouldn't have anything to write about.

For microscopic animals living in the Gulf of Mexico, even worse than the toxic oil released during the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster may be the very oil dispersants used to clean it up, a new study finds.

More than 2 million gallons (7.5 million liters) of oil dispersants called Corexit 9527A and 9500A were dumped into the gulf in an effort to prevent oil from reaching shore and to help it degrade more quickly.

However, when oil and Corexit are combined, the mixture becomes up to 52 times more toxic than oil alone, according to a study published online this week in the journal Environmental Pollution.

"There is a synergistic interaction between crude oil and the dispersant that makes it more toxic," said Terry Snell, a study co-author and biologist at Georgia Tech. Using dispersants breaks up the oil into small droplets and makes it less visible, but, "on the other hand, makes it more toxic to the planktonic food chain," Snell told LiveScience.

What had been a blurry picture about polar ice — especially how it impacts sea levels — just got a whole lot clearer as experts on Thursday published a peer-reviewed study they say puts to rest the debate over whether the poles added to, or subtracted from, sea level rise over the last two decades.

"This improved certainty allows us to say definitively that both Antarctica and Greenland have been losing ice," lead author Andrew Shepherd of the University of Leeds in Britain, told reporters. Not only that, but the pace has tripled from the 1990s, the data indicate.

Combining satellite data from dozens of earlier studies, the study "shows that the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets have contributed just over 11 millimeters (0.4 inches) to global sea levels since 1992," he added. Two-thirds was from Greenland, a third from Antarctica.

It’s pretty easy to show that global temperatures are rising, or that spring is arriving earlier than it once did, but since climate has changed plenty of times in the past, that alone doesn’t prove anything. Tying climate change to human greenhouse-gas emissions — an area known as detection and attribution, or fingerprinting — is a lot harder.

That’s what makes a new study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences so important. Using state-of-the-art climate models, Ben Santer of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and 21 colleagues have found what they call “some of the clearest evidence to date of a discernible influence on atmospheric temperature.”

As the evidence become overwhelming the dumbest or most highly paid forecasters, scientist or predictors of weather climate change dare to comment hear. Usually they do the cut and paste thing they really really don't know.
