Nice try, but when you base all your arguments on vapor instead of data, like you do, you are pretty ineffective. So you cherry pick a few renegade scientists who hardly ever do their own work or are sponsored by industry and disregard those who have done the real work. The radical RW's denigration of science is dangerous and will take us to darker times if allowed to prevail. When agenda is put before reality it is not healthy. Global warming is not partisan. The Earth is warming. CO2 is a GHG. Burning fossil fuels is increasing the CO2 in the atmosphere. What don't you understand?
Data? Like the CO2 you emit with every post, while bytching there should be less CO2 emissions? Data like that?

Do go on... hypocrite.

You foil yourself with every post.

And do tell us of the "agenda" of "settled science". When is 'science' ever settled in advance?

Were you capable of admitting error it would be a simple search to find all your posts regarding the 'politics' of global warming. But I'd have better luck convincing spaceballs that Mann didn't win a Nobel, that litesong is a goofball, and that captain what's his name is relevant.

Ummmm, when did I use vapor as an argument?
I used simple 5th grade science to dispute and the law of thermal dynamics to back it up.
You use falsified computer models and NO scientific method.

Nice try Pinocchio.

Embrace science instead of manipulating data and calling it science.
What a joke! LOL.

Listen, uncertainty analysis necessitates error analysis etc. Leave science to scientists. Their work has rules outside your understanding.

I tell you what.. don't take any medication, let any operation happen, etc if you don't accept the science.

PROVE what you say!!!! You CANNOT.
Refresher for the liberal artist crowd (you spaceballs)
1-Zeroth law of thermodynamics: If two systems are in thermal equilibrium with a third system, they must be in thermal equilibrium with each other. This law helps define the notion of temperature.(Yet you claim this mysterious 3rd system that makes the other two increase which leads to the 1st law:)
2-First law of thermodynamics: Heat is a form of energy. Because energy is conserved, the internal energy of a system changes as heat flows in or out of it. Equivalently, perpetual motion machines of the first kind are impossible.(Thus proving AGW is NOT possible!)Why? Because Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only change forms. In any process, the total energy of the system remains the same. For a thermodynamic cycle the net heat supplied to the system equals the net work done by the system.
3-Second law of thermodynamics: The entropy of any isolated system never decreases. Such systems spontaneously evolve towards thermodynamic equilibrium the state of maximum entropy of the system. Equivalently, perpetual motion machines of the second kind are impossible.(Did you catch the equilibrium part?)
4-Third law of thermodynamics: The entropy of a system approaches a constant value as the temperature approaches absolute zero.[2] With the exception of glasses the entropy of a system at absolute zero is typically close to zero, and is equal to the log of the multiplicity of the quantum ground state.(Not applicable in our case)

Stick to grammar and keep physics to the adults.

I'm not chiming in on the debate, but I must say that you are not a student (either directly or indirectly) of the notable thermodynamicists. Stating the laws of thermodynamics and then adding your own commentary does nothing to prove or disprove global warming. Simply stated, if you define a box that is large enough to encompass Earth then within that box there is a total amount of energy at a given moment in time. The laws of thermodynamics explain what happens when the amount of energy in the box changes. If the amount of energy decreases or increases the temperature will tend to change similarly.

Wasn't writing to you, but evidently you have a guilty conscience. However, not sure that you can read and you don't listen very well.

Stop global warming.

By the way, my grandmother wants me to go with her tomorrow to get a tattoo of Al Gore on her lower back. I don't feel comfortable about it.

Simple & misspelled. That is "social misfit" to a......"t". "social misfit" sings Herman's Hermits lyrics all the time:

At the time of the early Herman's Hermits songs, pocket calculators weren't around. Later, a/c powered table calculators that engineering students used (not in class), but in computer rooms still cost $3000. The aero department had two. Yeah, everywhere else, we still used slide rules. Once we were given an engineering problem, in which we could use the University computer & BASIC language(with punch cards) to solve the problem. I used two slide rules & beat the computer by 2 hours.

Oh, that's right. "ratdownthemiddledownwron ggully" has no science or mathematics degrees. "ratdownthemiddledownwron ggully" didn't understand its science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc in its poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa. At least, "ratdownthemiddledownwron ggully" SAID it had those classes.
