Abstract
Global warming first became evident beyond the bounds of natural variability in the 1970s, but increases in global mean surface temperatures have stalled in the 2000s.
97% of true believers in Orthodox Climatology have faith in all the experts' pronouncements stating AGW has "stalled".

It is good to see that 'Pat' agrees with the facts of Climate Change. Now if he can just convince 'Less' to return to the fold of the faithful then we can once again stand united in spreading the message of 'truth' to all that may be interested in "...understanding the scientific basis of risk of human-induced climate change,(and) its potential impacts...".

Do not let this unprecedented cold deter your faith... Take comfort in knowing that somewhere on this Earth of our's there are people suffering from record breaking heat.

Despite the cold Arctic temperatures that toxic topix AGW deniers crow about this year, the present Arctic sea ice VOLUME loss compared to the average sea ice VOLUME average of the 1980's decade, is still 9500 cubic km, or ~ 9500/28=~ 340 cubic km per year. Greenland ice Volume loss is ~ 215 cubic km per year.

These unprecedented historic LOW volumes of ice LOSS cannot go on forever. AGW will rise again as foretold by every science academy in the world!

Joe!
Good to hear from you!!!
The last vestiges of "The Faithful" appear to have abandoned all reason, logic and basic science in favor of demagoguery and insults. I know, I know... not much has changed. But I do wish to say; it is good to see your presence here once again. Hope you have been able to enjoy some of the cryptic admissions of error by the UNIPCC AR5 WG1. Sooooo funny reading the contorted reasoning used to continue to justify the title of this thread :-)

Merry Christmas my friend,

It's NOT GLOBAL WARMING!

It's GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGING! Get it? Now remember it.

Nobody in Cairo was dreaming of a white Christmas, but it looks like they'll get one. The worst snowstorm in more than 50 years hit the Middle East, blanketing Cairo, Jerusalem and areas of Syria in white powder. It was the first time in 100 years that Egypt had seen snow.

Don't worry the deniers will post "nothing to see here, move along" and of course those 2.5 million Syrian refugees freezing in tents out in the middle of no where are contented also. At least they escaped the war only to freeze to death and there will be no such thing as climate refugees either. Deniers will have to wear blindfolds & ear plugs soon in order to try and sound convincing.

Over 2000 cold and snow records set in the USA this past week

Compare to 98 high temperature records, and 141 high minimum temperature records

Quite an imbalance in weather records this week. Even the AGU fall meeting in San Francisco where the best and brightest global warming scientists were meeting was surrounded by record (such as 25F in San Jose Dec 9th) and near record setting low temperatures, though the irony was lost on many of them.

How many 'weather' reports will it take warmists to give up their theory?

If you let government regulate your healthcare, there's nothing stopping them from trying to regulate climate by controlling your carbon dioxide emissions. Do you really want politicians in charge of climate? Why not wait for experimental evidence first?

Try reading for context. 90% of the HEAT is being absorbed by the oceans. While the surface temperature has not risen as fast, the amount of heat the Earth has gained is increasing. I know that is a difficult concept for some, but the article did not say in any means that global warming has stalled.

what is amazing to me is that the 'Catastrophic Global Warming Experts' did not have a Summit scheduled for this week in Cairo ;0)

Yes Pat. An unfortunate error by omission. Let it not negatively impinge the credibility of the remaining opinions found within this story.
I am sure those who are secure in their belief of the 'True' Nature of Orthodox Climatology do not deny the words of the UNIPCC AR5 WG1 when this August report acknowledges the "hiatus" in Global Warming found to be occurring within these last Two Decades.

Stay Warm my Friend
