Full story: Newsday

When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

Is Steve your new god? What a lot of baseless propaganda. 1934 may have been the warmest in the continental USA, but that is irrelevant to the discussion. Globally, 1998 was warmer and the past decade is the warmest ever recorded globally.
Irrelevant?

So you have no objection to doctoring data?

Not happening in legitimate science, where there are too many competing to find flaws in any OTHER scientists work.

But sure. You can make any year look cooler if you manipulate the data which is what most of the denial sites do. And there is NO professional competence or checks on their work. They make it up on the spot..

You could all right. Or the coolest. But that is because you are an idiot and don't have any principles. Also you don't have hundreds of other scientists looking at your papers and correcting any obvious flaws. i.e. you are not a climate researcher. For YOU, anything is possible. And irrelevant.

So tell me, what "legitimate" sites list all their 'corrections' alongside their modified data.

Any leading peer reviewed science journal will lead you to the papers describing the methodology applied. If they aren't on the website, then write a letter. They will be HAPPY to provide the reference.

ohh, cute. GISTEMP is down because of the Republican political coup so you can't get at their webpage.

Well, when the right wing craters as the moderates get tired of the hooliganism of the extremists, perhaps the website will come back.

Well, maybe HADCRUT

"How are the hemispheric and global anomaly series calculated?
Values for the hemisphere are the weighted average of all the non-missing, grid-box anomalies in each hemisphere. The weights used are the cosines of the central latitudes of each grid box. The global average for CRUTEM4 and CRUTEM4v is a weighted average of the Northern Hemisphere (NH) and Southern Hemisphere (SH). The weights are 2 for the NH and one for the SH. For CRUTEM3 and CRUTEM3v, the global average is the average of the NH and SH values. For HadCRUT4, HadCRUT3 and HadCRUT3v the global average is the average of the NH and SH values. In the time series files, the second row of integers is the percentage of the surface area covered for each month from 1850."

Check the dates. What was CO2 then and now?
What's your point? Yesterday was warmer than today. Has the concentration of CO2 diminished? Remember, weather fluctuations are in tens of degrees while climate changes are on the order of degrees.

Data sets are mostly public domain. CRU (cannot access GISTEMP due to shutdown) copies of data sets 3 and 4 are available HERE. http://www.cru.uea.ac.uk/cru/data/temperature...

Implementing the shutdown is Obama's responsibility. That he deemed the site "non-essential" was his decision.

He criteria for shutdowns was based on what 'pain' he could inflict as political tool.

What a guy.

The year you dropped out of junior high, was it warmer or cooler than average?

I got science in science classes.

Confirms that you still have those grade school books in your reference library.

Technically doesn't mean literally.

You and other teabaggers give the Prez far more power than he actually exercises. You think he has a list in the Oval Office and he went down it, "I'm closing this, this, and this, and leaving this, this, and this open." What an idiot.

I'll bet you were raising hell about Obama raising the price of gasoline earlier this year. So now he's lowered it to $2.99 around here, right?

The government chugs along on its own, and I'm sure there is a list somewhere of what operates or doesn't during a shutdown. The President is one-third of the government, not necessarily the final arbiter.

If he issues any executive orders, you'll be screaming "Dictator!"

The extremists in the Republican Party are responsible for shutting down the government. Most of the extremists are found in that Party. Until we get moderation in the Republican household, there will continue to be chaos in the House. The tactics by the House of holding the nation hostage are detrimental to the health of the nation and probably the Republican Party as well.
