I've been noticing changes all around me. Just last night it got colder all of a sudden.
==========
Climate change is here and will only worsen. Get used to more flooding, wildfires and drought, depending on where you live. Cities and states across America already are spending lots of money to respond.

Those are the take-home messages of a new White House report released Tuesday that is part of President Barack Obama's second-term effort to prepare the nation for the impacts of a changing climate such as rising sea levels and increasingly erratic weather.

The National Climate Assessment update said evidence of human-made climate change "continues to strengthen" and that "Americans are noticing changes all around them."

“Ah,” say the believers,“but there is a consensus of scientists and learned societies.” That is the argumentum ad verecundiam, the reputation or appeal-to-authority fallacy. Merely because a group has a reputation, it may not deserve it; even if it deserves it, it may not be acting in accordance with it; and, even if it is, it may be wrong.

And you appear to be just another sheep.

Well sht for brains I would much rather listen to a man like John Coleman than a dancing chicken(you).A man that has forgot more about climate than you in your miserable libtard existence.
Just a sample of what this great man has said.
Coleman:'When the temperature data could no longer be bent to support global warming, they switched to climate change and now blame every weather and climate event on CO2 despite the hard, cold fact that the “radiative forcing” theory they built their claims on has totally failed to verify.'

with a track record like these clowns....are they surprised people doubt their bogus claims?
With the track record of Marc Morano, we should be impressed???
The owner of Climate Depot, Morano served for three years as a senior advisor, speechwriter, and climate researcher for U.S. Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.) a known science denier. BTW, the last decade is the warmest since records have been compiled. There is NO cooling.

Yup. And SpaceBalls probably thinks that the EPA is a reliable source of scientific fact when they are being discredited because the EPA office run by President Barack Obama's top political staff interfered with independent investigations of wrong doing in the name of national security.
The lack of integrity means all trust is gone. That is of consensus.

"The rate of global warming is accelerating. Therefore it is caused by us." That is the fallacy of ignoratio elenchi, the red-herring fallacy. Even if global warming were accelerating, that would tell us nothing about whether we were to blame. The IPCC twice uses this fallacious argument in its 2007 Fourth Assessment Report. Even if its argument were not illogical, the warming rate is not increasing. The notion that it is accelerating was based on a statistical abuse that the IPCC has refused to correct.

Like a detective story, first you need a victim, in this case the planet Earth: more energy is remaining in the atmosphere.
Then you need a method, and ask how the energy could be made to remain. For that, you need a provable mechanism by which energy can be trapped in the atmosphere, and greenhouse gases provide that mechanism.
Next, you need a ‘motive’. Why has this happened? Because CO2 has increased by nearly 50% in the last 150 years and the increase is from burning fossil fuels.
And finally, the smoking gun, the evidence that proves ‘whodunit’: energy being trapped in the atmosphere corresponds exactly to the wavelengths of energy captured by CO2.
The last point is what places CO2 at the scene of the crime. The investigation by science builds up empirical evidence that proves, step by step, that man-made carbon dioxide is causing the Earth to warm up.

In science, a temporary consensus does not mean proof of a scientific fact. Many people took early, strong public positions in media interviews, classrooms, research conclusions or simply with their peers that CO2 was causing climate change. Our system, particularly regarding academics, does not reward someone for being wrong.

However, many people who took that early position now reject it including several prior member of the IPCC Science Team.
