You have shown great restraint on toxic topix AGW forums. Still don't know why you have chomped a toxic topix AGW denier...... specially one that was a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AND alleged & proud threatener.

I'm sure you would see goats that others haven't cared for & be delighted that they were rescued. The goats have made subjects for my wife's paintings, every bit as heroic as her epic battle, parade & circus horse paintings.

In truth, north of the 80th parallel, temperatures have been 2-14 degrees above normal since December 20, 2012.

All weeks, except for 1 week of normal temperature, have been well above normal temperature since late October 2012.

For less than 3 weeks since late August 2012, have temperatures been normal. All other weeks have been well over normal temperature.

"phud fetid feces face fiend" can't see the temperatures due to the fetid feces on its fiend face.

That can only mean Brian, who's a very real threatener, but chomped is a bit ambiguous- chew his arse off, yes, consumed his utterances, no way!

There you go again threatening physical violence.
Easy to do when your anonymous, but you're not Brian.
I wonder if the German cybercrime unit would be interested that Mr. Brian Ganek of Schwabach, Germany has been making death threats against environmental activists on the internet?
They'd probably think you're just a loony, but they might check you out.

Brian, you threatened physical violence against individuals on this forum, and against environmentalists as a group- posts that were deleted according to the very standards you appeal to now.
Maybe you were not serious, but you were dumb- first rule of trolling- be anonymous.
Brian Ganek of Schwabach is no longer anonymous.
Any more threats and the German police will be informed.

I was referring to the goats, troll habits of eating such, & your possiblility of physically eating a toxic topix AGW denier! Joke all the way.

However, your ability to dispatch toxic topix AGW deniers with words & science is commendable, also!

Green trolls like goats, and gobble them up, mostly metaphorically, and seldom culinarically.

Green trolls like paintings, and devour them quite literally, although mostly sensuarily.

Our cats or dogs almost never bother her paintings. One cat accidentally knocked a painting over(no damage), but was very apologetic afterwards. I'll have to ask her if any of her goats she had earlier in her life, ever ate one of her paintings. I suspect she kept paintings & goats very far apart.

Very wise. I suspect a goat would devour her work quite literally.

And you think topix doesn’t know what you publish? Attacks on me won't 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.

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
