Note that the recent 'cold snap' is related to the 'arctic oscillation'. It is a case of moving heat around, not changing the total sum ( as with AGW ). In concert with the -12C cold in Siberia, Western Europe, etc, there is a massive +12C 'heat wave' in the arctic that will probably cause 2010 to set another record low for sea ice minimums.

And this should also be a record melt for Greenland which is being hit with a serious heat wave.

The problem is that people who understand what the climatologists are saying aren't "Gore-ites." They're RATIONAL.

It's your attempt to dismiss the scientific findings based on political bias that's irrational... and also futile. The facts remain unchanged by your dislike of Al Gore.

Global warming is the largest Environmental Ponzie Scheme in the U.S. today. It requires taxpayers to invest tax money into programs to stop something that does not exist. It requires businesses to pay carbon taxes to discharge exhaust. At the end of the trail of these money payments are people living large due to our foolishness.

Which means the vast majority must be Gorites, because very few, "understand what the climatologists are saying."

I do no such thing as base anything on politics, most scientific findings sound reasonable to lay persons, but so does some sceptical science, enough to keep me in the sceptics camp for now.
As for Fat Al, my dislike of him is based solely on his obvious underhand actions and tactics.

But as Greenland was warmer than that , back when Eric the Red settled there, why the panic? The rest of the known world carried on as normal . There were no floods in the UK. But of course you deniers think that never happened.

The biggest Ponzi scam in the history of the World was led by a Jew named Madoff and this Global ruckus another Ponzi scam is also headed by another----------. You guessed it. Al is just a pont he is being used and is made to look rather foolish now.

Western Europe was. But there is NO good evidence that Greenland was warmer. Note that the vikings were ADAPTED to 'nordic temperatures' and wouldn't know how to live in a melting Greenland.

We have both dendrochonology ( tree ring data) that showed Greenland was pretty much the same during the period with two short 'cold snaps' near the end that were only about 0.5C cooler.

And accounts of the temperatures and sea ice show no annecdotal evidence of a warm greenland.

This 'mistake' of some first grade teacher is popular among the clueless denialists. It just isn't fact.

Yes yes, we get it--you hate Al Gore.

Now, what does that have to do with the SCIENCE behind global warming?

See what I mean, folks? Look at the denial crowd, and you'll see one common trait--they've based their conclusion entirely on their utter hatred of Al Gore, liberals, or science itself. NOT on facts.

This is why you're wrong, people. Global warming is a matter of science, not politics; it's an established fact of the real world. You can't make it go away by shouting, or by shooting the messengers.
