I agree, point I was trying to make is that the warming crowd is always clamoring about the 97% consensus. They either don't understand or refuse to acknowledge what the 97% represent, its certainly far from consensus.
All your lot do is argue in circular fashion, that is what you do when you have nothing to back your position other than a personal opinion. Well opinions don't count as facts in science.
What the 97% totally agree on is the MAN IS WARMING the planet and as a result this causes climate change. If you want to argue about how high the water mark will get in your lounge room during a downpour that is a circular argument, It makes no f....g difference whether it's an inch or a foot. If you want to waste energy arguing details then you are only kidding yourself. it's the bigger picture that matters in the long run.

"teeny-minded anne" said 97% of scientists said there was no AGW. Since she ain't here no longer, you can take up her cheerleading rah. Without heat in your brain, you can do that.
I rarely read your posts, they always remind me of the old commercial of the egg frying in a skillet and the narrator saying "this is your brain on drugs".

Oh I answered your question alright but those brain filters engaged once again and refused to take in what was said. When you buy a car do you insist from the salesperson to nominate the day you will get a flat tire or whether it will be able to jump the grand canyon. Then when they can't answer declare it an unreliable product. That is on par with the questions you flat earthers ask in here.

This year could well be a strong El Nino, if not a super El Nino.

Looks like you won't be using your user name for much longer.

Dude, your car is on its way to the show room. Time to pay the bill.

You'd be happy if 2014 were .01 C warmer than 1998, everyone else knows its meaningless.

The fool would be the one who thinks that .01C warming is going to end all life, the liar would be the one who seeks out poor fools in attempt to convince them it will.

What are you I wonder, enough of a fool to believe that the super El Nino temperatures of 1998 would never be surpassed, or enough of a liar to believe it would be worth claiming "No Warming" for a few years to argue against action in the short term?

And are you either a fool or a liar not to realise that decade upon decade upon decade of warming by just a fraction of a degree means that our grandchildren will have to live in a world several degrees warmer than our own?

Either way, you are contemptible.

Whach....whack...paddywhack... Just keeps popping back up. Whaacckkkk! No matter how we knock 'em down.

The Earth is warming. CO2 is a GHG. Burning fossil fuels causes CO2 to increase in the atmosphere. Those are the facts. Deal with them!

Remaining Eager "Believer";
Since the scientists are not 100% certain it means YOU can't "believe" they are.
YOU don't get to decide no matter how determined you are to "believe" in this misery for billions of innocent children.
Who's the neocon now?

Until climate change scientists come out with a united voice recommending a SUBSTANTIAL increase in nuclear power, I don't believe they think this is a serious problem.
