If so, would you please cite?

Christy lies is correct. False make believe research is all Christy has.Whether just here in the USA or the world, facts are false. Put this one on a list to further disregard as genious.

You're most welcome.

Can you describe your understanding of the scientific method? What is the most compelling test you've found for man made global climate change?

Latest about Arctic sea ice melt 'and recovery':

Barely ABOVE 4 million km2, Arctic sea ice extent is still BELOW any recorded level in any previous year for ~6 weeks, presently at 4,166,563 km2 (October 2, 2012), fractionally gaining ~25,000 km2(a bit more than West Virginia area) of sea ice the previous day, despite the sun, unseen, from the North Pole for 10+ days, & temperatures above the 80th parallel, a bit above -13 degC, fractionally above normal, although past weeks of Arctic temperatures have been averaging 7degC high.

Much warmth built up in Arctic waters these past months is resisting its conversion back to sea ice, especially southern Arctic waters which have seen much more solar energy absorbed than northern Arctic clear waters. Only along the Greenland east coast is sea ice extending greatly south. All other regions, including the Northwest Passage, Northeast Passage & Arctic waters, south of the Arctic Ice Pack, resist conversion back to Arctic sea ice.

IN ADDITION, for months, any downwellings in the Arctic waters that have been ice-free, have been conducting much captured solar energy radiating on those clear waters, to the depths of the continental shelves & Arctic Ocean.

This same Arctic Ocean warmth is & will continue to keep Arctic sea ice thinner through the coming winter & even spring. As of October 2, Arctic sea ice VOLUME is ~23% lower than any satellite recorded year AND indications of submarine-detected Arctic sea ice VOLUME.

Yes, the Arctic sea ice Volume is disappearing, day to day, & year to year, quicker than the Arctic sea ice extent, even in the time of Arctic sea ice increase.

What is the most compelling test that you have performed proving
global climate change isn't going to be a future problem ?
Please enter in the equation population growth..
Also you might have ta plot an extreme(from her office) that can be reached still allowing the ability to reverse any ill effects..
I'm sure many would find that information reassuring...

You have a lower opinion of 'brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver' than I do. I thought he had a sub-sub-kindergarten comprehension of his poorly earned hi skule deegreee. Of course, he is also a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig & 4-time alleged & 3-time proud threatener..... which makes our assessments equal.
