That's the trouble with die hard conservative thinking, they can't imagine anything. That's why they never invent anything or find new solutions to solve a problem. They can only work with the tools & rules handed down by their forefathers & if that means fossil fuels are the best solution then anything else is second rate. This opinion is formed regardless of knowledge gained along the way that huge consumption of fossil fuels does us harm. Much like anything else they do in politics from managing the economy to playing cowboy in foreign lands getting involved in conflicts that have no achievable outcomes.

Well he didn't make those millions on AGW and didn't make any predictions. He REPORTED what some scientists forecast. And as for being wrong, what is that for you? A million times?

True. That is why societies and civilizations go through period collapses where the 'new guard' take over with innovations the 'old guard' rejected. However, it is true that those in power NOW will always resist change. They don't know how to deal with it and thus the cycles repeat endlessly...

The heat content of the oceans is approximately 90 times that of the atmosphere. Since the oceans have been gaining heat it is erronious to say that global warming has paused. Here is a graph showing the state of the oceans:

Proving that some folks will try anything to deny the facts.
Hahahaha. I would HOPE the oceans are warmer than the atmosphere. Otherwise there'd be "global warming" occurring. BTW, don't tell anyone I told you this, but, there's a bunch of underwater volcanoes taking place right now. Shhhhhhhh. I think the lava might be, you know, heating the water up.
Hahahahahaha

I suggested that a few years ago, when the Gakkel Ridge volcanoes were discovered, but I was assured by our climate catastrophist crusaders that it wasn't possible for them to warm ocean waters and that only CO2 can complete that task.
Since then, a few thousand more undersea volcanoes have been discovered:

Plus the recently discovered Antarctic under ice volcano:

And something more plausible than Glowbull warming:

Meaningless noise. First you convert 'heat energy' to temperature. You have ignored heat CAPACITY (thermal energy per unit of temperature change) which is much higher in water than air. Second your conclusion that if the temperature of water is warmer there is no change (i.e not otherwise). First you have to talk about the ocean SURFACE (which is where thermal equilibrium is driven). Second, to have a stable temperature, the surface would have to be at the same temperature as the air. Any imbalance and heat energy would be transferred.

You know, it is never too late to try for a high school GED. Night courses?

Your 'facts' are unsupported by the data. Volcanic activity has very little input to the ocean temperature relative to the equilibrium from the sun and volcanic activity in the oceans has not increased significantly anyway.

An issue with no relevance to the fact/problem of AGW. On a political note (and a fact check) employment now is about the same as during the previous Republican presidency.

Certainly AGW will lead to many job losses and economic hardships in the longer term. You should not lose sight of the future by focussing on short term and impossible issues. Unless you know a way to get 100% employment without a totalitarian state.

Not sure what you think is a scan anyway. AGW is solid science and I can find no scammers involved in it. Just denialists trying to maintain the 'old ways' in the face of change.

LUBBOCK, Texas — A Tucson, Arizona kidnapping and extortion plot of an American teen on U.S. soil was committed by previously deported illegal aliens from Mexico and a U.S. citizen who was arrested multiple times by Border Patrol agents for alleged alien smuggling and let go without prosecution by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. A group of six or seven men kidnapped the American teen in Tucson and mistakenly thought he belonged to a wealthy family. The men tortured the teen and insisted his parents hand over $400,000.

Whoops, wrong thread.

Not sure if you even know what the hell your talking about.
You show us 100% proof that AGW is factual and show us the proof of your "solid science". There has been many scammers outed with false and manipulated data so your post is pure cow dung.
You show yourself to be a sheep follower and quite the pathetic excuse for a man. You cannot think for yourself. You put out what you've been indoctrinated to put out and state it's SOLID SCIENCE!

Now once again prove beyond a reasonable doubt that global warming exist or STFU!!!!!
