If you look objectively, the models which predict disaster DON'T FIT THE OBSERVATIONS.
If a model doesn’t fit the observed, it is just WRONG. Nice try, but no cigar.
For the warmers, this just creates an opportunity for adding more unproven tweaks to their “theory”, because “they KNOW” they are right..
That is not science, it is religion, and people who “believe” are just part of a cult of those that have been duped.
Despite claims to the contrary, CO2 is a trace gas that provides a relatively inconsequential impact to the Earth, because unlike on Venus, the Earth has WATER VAPOR.
Any scientist not on the "take" will tell you that CO2 is a 5th rate atmospheric factor. Human activity is a single digit percentage of that.
“Warmers” should not expect people to believe in their cause anymore than “deniers” should expect them to believe in the tooth fairy. There is no proof of either, either way.
Facts might help. Refute these:
CO2 increases have NEVER preceded a temperature rise – EVER.
CO2 levels have been considerably higher in the past (so much for the runaway scenario)
It has been warmer in the past.(these last two facts were “inconveniently” obfuscated intentionally by the IPCC folks)
Model predictions have failed to meet observations by several orders of magnitude.
The Earth has been going through a warming cycle for a long time, which began and continued long before it was possible for humans to have an even infinitesimal impact.
The “consensus” for AGM is only a consensus of those that agree, not of everyone in a position to provide an objective, data based evaluation.
Hardly a great reason for the inept Feds to launch into another foray to destroy the economy.

Thanks Global Hoax. I'm going out right now and getting a truck that gets 3 miles to the gallon, and on the way home, I'm going to throw all my household garbage out the window all along the highway.

To celebrate tonight, the neighborhood will hold the first annual tire burning festival. A requirement for admission is to buy a full canister of R-22 freon and release it straight into the air.

This is going to be awesome.
