A line of empirical evidence that human urban heat island effects are causing global warming:
Direct observations find that urban heat island effects are rising sharply due to human activity.
Satellite and surface measurements find less energy is escaping to space at urban sites.
Ocean and surface temperature measurements find the planet continues to accumulate heat.
QED: empirical evidence that human urban heat island effects are causing global warming.
NO NO NO NO NO I beg to differ with you. Its the dirtling spewing hot air and useless babble causing climate change.

We're raising CO2 levels

The evidence is in the empirical record. Sea level isn't going up as planned, temperature seems to have stalled, the polar bears aren't dropping dead. People continually find areas where there's some obvious data tampering going on. The whole thing doesn't add up.
Sociologists find that older conservative white males are more likely to be climate change deniers because they are less likely to be pliant. That makes you a classic.

Here's your empirical evidence. Wisconsin was ranked #1 on the top ten list of biggest heat wave record breakers this summer and you don't think climate change is happening because the seas aren't up to your knee caps and you haven't seen one dead polar bear. LMAO!

To understand why there is a trend amongst conservative white males, the Gallup data was cross-examined with research about the "white male effect" -- the idea that white males were either more accepting of risk or less risk averse than the rest of the public.

The white male effect could stem from the notion that, historically, white males have faced fewer obstacles in life, said McCright. But another school of thought sees the adoption of risk tied to personal values. "It has to do with their identity as an in-group," he said. "Something that would challenge the status quo is something [conservative white males] want to shun."

That's true, we emit CO2 in order to live. Our own bodies generate metabolic heat that helps warm the world, but there's no evidence genocide would mitigate climate change. It's possible, our greenhouse gas emissions are too insignificant to be experimentally measured; maybe that's why no experiment demonstrates climate change mitigation is possible.

Only in terms that we must get rid of a serious toxin. However we also have to evacuate shit or we would eventually die too.

Both are conditions for living but not 'in order to' of anything. Remove the CO2 and shit magically and life would go on.

Never heard so much waste product about waste products though. You really know your sh*t.

You want to blame whatever blip in heat that occurs on the weather record as global warming. As I've pointed out numerous times, world wide temperatures are up a little over a degree Fahrenheit over the last century or so and CO2 is up 40%. I should be more if you guys are correct, it isn't you guys are wrong.

Latest about Arctic sea ice melt 'and recovery':

Barely ABOVE 4 million km2, Arctic sea ice extent is still BELOW any recorded level in any previous year for ~6 weeks, presently at 4,166,563 km2 (October 2, 2012), fractionally gaining ~25,000 km2(a bit more than West Virginia area) of sea ice the previous day, despite the sun, unseen, from the North Pole for 10+ days, & temperatures above the 80th parallel, a bit above -13 degC, fractionally above normal. Much warmth built up in Arctic waters these past months is resisting its conversion back to sea ice, especially southern Arctic waters which have seen much more solar energy absorbed than northern Arctic clear waters.

Only along the Greenland east coast is sea ice extending greatly south. All other regions, including the Northwest Passage, Northeast Passage & Arctic waters, south of the Arctic Ice Pack, resist conversion back to Arctic sea ice.

IN ADDITION, for months, any downwellings in the Arctic waters that have been ice-free, have been conducting much captured solar energy radiating on those clear waters, to the depths of the continental shelves & Arctic Ocean.

This same Arctic Ocean warmth is & will continue to keep Arctic sea ice thinner through the coming winter & even spring. As of October 2, Arctic sea ice VOLUME is ~23% lower than any satellite recorded year AND indications of submarine-detected Arctic sea ice VOLUME.

Yes, the Arctic sea ice Volume is disappearing, day to day, & year to year, quicker than the Arctic sea ice extent, even in the time of Arctic sea ice increase.

Floods have occurred since water first appeared on the planet.
Floods will continue while water exists on the planet.
CO2 doesn't have the power to cause rapid climate change, when alarmists realise that simple fact, we can stop talking about Glowbull warming, climate change, global climate disruption and catastrophic climate change.

How silly of of you!

Def: Climate is defined as the average weather patterns existing throughout several years over a large portion of Earth's surface. Usually, climate is measured for a specific area or region based on weather patterns over a 30-35 year time period. Climate therefore varies from weather because weather is concerned only with short term events. And CO2 does have "the power" to cause changes in the weather- over a short term- as a regions temp changes.

Did you know that;
Droughts killed more people than all other weather related disasters combined
Droughts and floods affected about an equal number of people, and far more than high winds (including hurricanes, cyclones, typhoons, storms and tornadoes)
Floods were, however, by far the greatest cause of homelessness
