16 years of no global warming? Yeah, right

Jan 14, 2013 Full story: Grist Magazine 175

The difficulties in debunking blatant anti-reality are legion. You can make up any old nonsense and state it in a few seconds, but it takes much longer to show why it's wrong and how things really are.

Climate is a multilayered process. Starts with the sun, the oceans are next, then the atmosphere. You need to understand each of the functions, how each function operates and how each function relates to all other functions.
I'm afraid you're making up the details after the sun, FF.

Solar activity is more than spots, TSI. Solar activity impacts climate by the size of the heliosphere. It also impacts the strength of our magnetic field. Neither of these is going to correlate with temperatues both have an impact on climate. There are many other aspects of solar activity that impact climate on earth. You will need to discover those and understand what they do.
Where are your peer review studies showing that FF. You are making up the "mysterious part" again.

The oceans make our climate not our heat. I thought the NASA piece was easy to understand but if not, you'll just have to do the work it takes to obtain an understanding of how the oceans make climate.
They were talking about clouds, FF. Sure clouds can affect local climate.

I post from NASA sites all the time.

If you weren't such a cherrypicker, you wouldn't take a vague statement, then ignore all their detail statements.

Measured temperatures are the very last thing that happens in the climate process.
Again, you NEED that vagueness to make it up FF.

It's been fun, but your fabrication made you unreliable, not going to chase the stuff you make up. Adios.
What you mean, is you recognized I was going to buy your mysticism, FF.

Yeah, I wanted to give you the benefit of the doubt to check your side out. That part was fun.

What area of study did he receive his doctorate in?
Er. Didn't he show you Jeremy had a peer reviewed climatology paper??
You didn't find that relevant?

And we are waiting for you to show your peer reviewed published work. No one finds any of your scientific science fiction relevant.

Hey Moron P(enny)HD.

Prove why NASA is wrong.

<<Evidence: Climate change: How do we know?

The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.

The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is very likely human-induced and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented in the past 1,300 years.1

Earth-orbiting satellites and other technological advances have enabled scientists to see the big picture, collecting many different types of information about our planet and its climate on a global scale. Studying these climate data collected over many years reveal the signals of a changing climate.
Certain facts about Earth's climate are not in dispute:

The heat-trapping nature of carbon dioxide and other gases was demonstrated in the mid-19th century.2Their ability to affect the transfer of infrared energy through the atmosphere is the scientific basis of many JPL-designed instruments, such as AIRS. Increased levels of greenhouse gases must cause the Earth to warm in response.

Ice cores drawn from Greenland, Antarctica, and tropical mountain glaciers show that the Earth’s climate responds to changes in solar output, in the Earth’s orbit, and in greenhouse gas levels. They also show that in the past, large changes in climate have happened very quickly, geologically-speaking: in tens of years, not in millions or even thousands.3
The evidence for rapid climate change is compelling:

• Sea level rise
Global sea level rose about 17 centimeters (6.7 inches) in the last century. The rate in the last decade, however, is nearly double that of the last century.4

• Global temperature rise
All three major global surface temperature reconstructions show that Earth has warmed since 1880.5 Most of this warming has occurred since the 1970s, with the 20 warmest years having occurred since 1981 and with all 10 of the warmest years occurring in the past 12 years.6 Even though the 2000s witnessed a solar output decline resulting in an unusually deep solar minimum in 2007-2009, surface temperatures continue to increase.7

• Warming oceans
The oceans have absorbed much of this increased heat, with the top 700 meters (about 2,300 feet) of ocean showing warming of 0.302 degrees Fahrenheit since 1969.8

• Shrinking ice sheets
The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have decreased in mass. Data from NASA's Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment show Greenland lost 150 to 250 cubic kilometers (36 to 60 cubic miles) of ice per year between 2002 and 2006, while Antarctica lost about 152 cubic kilometers (36 cubic miles) of ice between 2002 and 2005.

• Declining Arctic sea ice
Both the extent and thickness of Arctic sea ice has declined rapidly over the last several decades.9

• Glacial retreat
Glaciers are retreating almost everywhere around the world — including in the Alps, Himalayas, Andes, Rockies, Alaska and Africa.

• Extreme events
The number of record high temperature events in the United States has been increasing, while the number of record low temperature events has been decreasing, since 1950.

• Ocean acidification
Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the acidity of surface ocean waters has increased by about 30 percent.12,13 This increase is the result of humans emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and hence more being absorbed into the oceans. The amount of carbon dioxide absorbed by the upper layer of the oceans is increasing by about 2 billion tons per year.14,15

Penny, you remain clueless. NASA websites explain the science in simple enough terms that most people can understand it. The challenge remains:

PROVE NASA WRONG.

And do it with science, not with one of your MANY (almost identical) flippant comments.

What's noticeable is Penny disagrees with Tina Anne that Rush Limbaugh and FOX are great news sources. Haven't figured out what makes her tick. Doesn't help she just repeats over and over about mindless posts about "scientific science fiction"

My apologies for referring to you as the walloped again and again. Now, you should find another topic to report to science is not your forte. NASA is on its way out. Prove with your own peer reviewed published work they are correct. Until then you remain the commander of ignorance.

In addition, you think topix does not know what you publish. Attacks on me will not delete or erase what you are and what you do. You should stop making an ASSumption of your---self before you know the facts. Do contact topix to satisfy your accusations of the reprint BS your posting of what I said. You are a dumbASSumption of your---self again.
