You don't want to share the most compelling experiment you've found for man made catastrophic climate change? Please share.

With your obsessive desire for a compelling experiment I would have thought you would have designed/presented one by now...
I wonder why you haven't ?

No what it means is that people SHOULD THINK FOR THEMSELVES and not believe everything they read ,see ,or hear like a little mind controlled warmer cyborg . Do any of you worshipers ever leave your computer go outside and look for yourselves to have your own thoughts ? Or only read , believe and swallow hook line and sinker every climate story ,study ha ha that you read ? Really again time and again you warmers prove that most of you don't really have any common sense or your own thought's ! Look Chicken Little the sky is falling ! Well maybe then the planet WILL BURST INTO FLAMES and the you will both prove yourself right and be HAPPY !

What a wonderful climate report from the U.N. can we all say BULL SHIP !!!! Boy talk about deniers ! No proof that man is the cause except that they feel man is the cause , no reliable scientific research to rely on with all the now discredited e mails ,lies,biased research etc, And even deny that the planet has been cooling off since 1998 ! All the heat is being pushed into the deep oceans FARGIN REALLY ! Every elementary school student knows that the oceans have thermal layers which change in density and depth every day .
So what are people to believe the now discredited studies , ocean depth warming or we just have a FARGIN FEELING ! Really warmer's change concern , cause, and correction like the wind yet base it all on junk science ,speculation ,and FEELINGS !

Show us the data that shows the Earth cooling off since 1998. Since the warmest decade ever recorded is the past decade, I bet you cannot. You are just venting more hot air.

<quoted text>I've often noted, gcaveman doesn't know what an experiment is if he believes "the experiment is ongoing now", experiments are controlled. Since we have only one Earth, time, reversing the treatment and random retests can be used to detect a climate signal from a known and controlled emission or sequestration of a greenhouse gas.
Please, catch up.
Your demand for an experiment is pointless.

You are an idiot. I am not. This is where we differ.

Which i dare say that almost every believer on these pages ARE NOT INTERESTED IN DIFFERENT VIEWS !
How very convenient!

You can say any kind of bullshit and not have to prove it!

And, you can ignore the proof from others and remain blessedly ignorant!

Total sum: that makes you a bullshitting ignoramus.

Really my B.S. is no or less reliable than the B.S. that you and others post on these pages . However I am able to see through your and your fellow believer B.S. and am able to come to my own conclusions without reading the B.S. from some little job scared so called expert or his cronies on these pages . So all in all I would say that I am less ignorant that all you climate worshipers combined and yes Iam BLESSED !

Wow Blozo not don't pop take a breath and count to 1000 ( could we be so lucky ), But seriously would it really matter if I were to post links to the reports ,the reports themselves ? No not really because you and I both know that you and the other believers here would never take the time to read them anyway . And like I posted I am not going to do your work for you if you are really interested you know how to do a little research and find these reports the same as I . Or is this how you and the rest of the believers have gone through life by letting other do your research - work for you ?

Well swan song I thought you had died and left the planet . But your usual rant of racism , stupidity ,ignorance and just plain craziness never fails to shock us all ,you derive such hatred of a person just from the few writing on these pages . Such a small closed bigoted mind , I could almost feel sorry for you but you and the other experts are all self made and deserve no pity because all of you have none !

This weirdo has come here regularly to spread its hatred and anger and tell that it has green to spend. Then it gets really sensitive and hurt that those whom it messed with don't agree with it...

To put the history of life on planet earth into a time perspective, imagine unrolling a toilet roll down a hillside. If there are 400 sheets of tissue paper in the roll, then the very first life in the oceans is seen at sheet 240. The age of the dinosaurs begins at sheet 19. Dinosaurs in their many forms and great diversity are around for 14 and a half sheets. Dinosaurs are extinct by the end of the Cretaceous, 5 squares from the end, making way for the mammals. Our story and place on the timeline as upright walking apes begins only in the last half of the very last sheet. The human story as Homo sapiens, is represented by less than 2 millimeters of this, some 200,000 years.

Our own individual lifetimes cannot be depicted on this final sheet of the toilet roll as it would be too thin a line, yet we have been witness to more change to the planet, to the diversity of life, global climate and natural habitats in this same time period. We are undoubtedly the cause of the sixth mass extinction event that the planet has seen in its history.

The last 50 years has shown an enormous increase in human population, but also extraordinary leaps in technological innovation. The question that needs to be asked is if we can rise to the opportunity, to use our technology to better understand our impact, to stem the tide of extinction on land and in the oceans, to preserve what we have left, and to discover and understand more about our past. What the fossil record does do is to force us to contemplate our place on the planet. We are but one species of several hominids that inhabited planet earth and like our distant cousins who went extinct fairly recently, our time on planet earth is also finite. It won't take much to tip the balance against us.
