Yes, and those records are proof that I was right. I have posts that even included simple science experiments that one could do at home.
But your right that Topix has to proof that I am right and that you lack an education in science and math. Although one could use those same records to prove that you are mentally unbalanced and are in need of medical intervention.
Haha you are "the cornered rat" example that you used about me.

Your posts are the record of what you post. Read your posts from the beginning. Share them with your family.

So you claim. Yet you seem to lack in the proof department. And as for the statement of no one ever claiming I was a paid poster, lets just chalk that up to your less than perfect memory.
I also like to bring it up every time someone like you uses it to claim that someone else who you disagree with and cannot seem to debunk. The fact is that you have used just such a claim against others in a hope of discrediting them. Which must make my post pointing out that you do this every time you have nothing else annoying to you. After all it points out that for all intents and purposes that you have lost another verbal sparring match.
LOL.

Talk about someone in denial. Care to wander back to discussing climate change or are you stuck with nothing.

You even make the same brave noises as a cornered rat. All bravo, hissing, and showing the teeth. All while hoping that the agressor will leave you alone.

You have no shame. You publish that the "sun is a nuclear reaction."

We are just coming out of the coldest period in the last 500 MILLION years. The average temperature for the past half billion years has been 10-15 degrees higher.
Half degree fluctuations go on constantly. Why? Solar activity is one reason, volcanic explosion is another.
We had a super-volcanic eruption in 1815 (Mt Tambora). We have had several smaller ones since. Mt St Helens put more sulfuric oxide in the atmosphere than all factories since 1700.
I don't think your statement "We are just coming out of the coldest period in the last 500 MILLION years" is correct.

Antarctica began glaciation 34 million years ago. Our current ice age started about 2.5 to 3 million years ago. The most recent coldest period was 70,000 years ago.

We did have the largest extent of glaciation during the Little Ice Age than at any time since the Younger Dryas ended about 10,500 years ago.

I do agree, half degree differences in weather/climate happen on a regular basis. I also agree that the sun plays a major role.

When I said that we are coming out of "the coldest period" I was referring to the entire Pleistocene ice age, not recent activity.

We, obviously, are in a warmer period, but these is still discussion if this is just a short pause before another major glaciation period starts.

Al Gore and his friends didn't get the "global warming" nonsense from a scientific inquiry. It was manufactured by political activists in the 1970s. Ironically, they first began by solemnly warning us about a new ice age.

All energy used by humans CANNOT raise global temperature by more than 0.1 degrees Fahrenheit. Look at the energy output of humans compared to the solar constant and do the math. Plus, 99.9% of "greenhouse gases" come from......(drum roll).........VOLCANOES!!!(cym bal crash)

Hey volcanic guy:

The burning of fossil fuels and changes in land use results in the emission into the atmosphere of approximately 30 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide per year worldwide, according to the EIA. The fossil fuels emissions numbers are about 100 times bigger than even the maximum estimated volcanic CO2 fluxes. Our understanding of volcanic discharges would have to be shown to be very mistaken before volcanic CO2 discharges could be considered anything but a bit player in contributing to the recent changes observed in the concentration of CO2 in the Earth's atmosphere.

Complete with a link to Cornell University astromery page which also stated that it is a nuclear reaction.

I also noticed that you only have your misguided belief and have not been able to provide anything other than that pitiful thing to counterdict what I said.

Sounds like I am not a liar and the only one who is sounding dumb is you. If I am wrong then you should be able to provide something other than your silly claims. Something from say an university or NASA for example. Otherwise everyone here will have to assume that you are the one lying.

Care to name the last year. They have made that claim about every year only to discover that there was years in the past that were just as hot. Something I always pay attention to when they say we broke a weather record is when was the previous record set.

We did just finish a solar maximum. Most solar activity in the last 400 years of recorded activity and in the top 10% of all activity in the holocene, proxy studies.

Today cycle 24 is very weak and it is expected cycles 25 and 26 will also be weak. Updated 1-1-13

How about the last four? They all had serious errors with the AR4 nearly resulting in the head of the group being let go.
Given the history of the IPCC reports, can you offer any proof that this one isn't as full as the rest? That the UN actually got something right given the history of the UN's screw ups.
What are those errors?

Gossip is not enough.

Research? You have no idea what it is. Without science and mathematics, you have no tools to criticize the IPCC reports.
You are dumb liar 24/7/365.
AGW is junk science. When the "scientists" at the IPCC were pressed for the raw data, they said they lost it.

SpaceBlues is a troll being paid by the AGW scammers. The warmers get 50 times the funding of the sceptics. It's obvious where the money is.

Then you should switch given your penchant for money. Good luck to you.

P.S. I'm flaterred by your unfounded allegation.

You are a new denier, so it seems.

Since the days of the "paid denier" posters, i.e. last year, I had not seen such gossip as yours.

No science, no math, right?
