I know what your 'apology that wasn't an apology, but more posts to attack' was for. toxic topix AGW deniers have used such non-apologies in the past. You're not even inventively original. But that is to be expected from someone with no science & mathematics degrees, or upper class science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc for its poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa (or no DEE-ploomaa, at all).

You are so ignorant that you don't even know there's a factor of 1.8 between C and F.
Where's the joke about 3.6 or 7.2 F rise on the average?
Both(C&F) are measured in degrees. Degree is not a unit exclusive to the English scale.

What's got to the with degrees C conversion into degrees F???
And where's the joke about 3.6 or 7.2 degrees F warming on the average?
I'm going to work with you on this since your buddy lifesong wont. All temps with regard to global warming are in celsius. When converting C to F add 32. Now I can pull up loads of factual links on temperature over the last 120 years but thats when you'll need to think. Notice lifesong keeps posting about arctic ice, yet he wont use the NASA link ? Being deceptive on purpose !

You must be another denier to reply to me.

Why don't teach the conversion to the other ignorant brother/sister? But of course, you are the same. NO?

Keep reading the news, 2 degrees is a lost story. They've given up, not that they believe its going higher, they are claiming grave trajedy will occur at lower temps, permafrost melting. The arctic will disappear.

Well then tell me what point you were trying to make with this post;
"First, not "degrees" but Celcius (C). The conversion from C is 1.8 into F, i.e. 3.6 and 7.2 F."

You are a time waster.

Look up the other denier. In USA, deniers like you don't know the conversion when they see "degrees" alone. In fact, they confuse degrees with parallels. Read the posts.

It's your fault if you can't follow the flow.

Man caused & man mitigated Golwbull warming was a myth. its a pole shift snow in odd places warm inodd places. None caused by mans activities. cannott be mitigated by mans activities. Just tryand prevent the volcanos on the pacific ring of fire from doing their thing. you greenie idiots need to go stick your heads in a volcanic vent!

There was no 'flow' at the time of your post. You made a mistake trying to be condescending and someone called you on it. The subsequent line of posts do not justify your mistake, they only highlight it.

Yes, the thread is:

There Is Little Hope Left of Keeping Global Temperature in the 'Safe' Zone!

Deniers are confused about temperatures in C or F and parallels. So what are they denying? The truth as desribed by climate science.

Two degrees from year 2000 then we still have 2 degrees to work with. Yes its become a joke, just set a temperature where you claim everything will go to shit.
What's the joke about 2 degrees C or 3.6 degrees F??

That you don't know the difference?
