...And finally, no, the models aren’t “bunk”. In fact the models are doing a pretty good job of representing the physical nature of what’s going on. The real problem isn’t with the models, it’s with people interpreting them, or, more accurately, misinterpreting them. Again, I’ll cover this below.
Delingpole continues:

This is why the latest Assessment Report is proving such a headache to the IPCC. It’s the first in its history to admit what its critics have said for years: global warming did “pause” unexpectedly in 1998 and shows no sign of resuming. And, other than an ad hoc new theory about the missing heat having been absorbed by the deep ocean, it cannot come up with a convincing explanation why.

Well, actually, no. That’s like seeing a corpse with a bullet wound to the head and saying “Except for the bullet wound to the head you cannot come up with a convincing explanation why this person is dead.”

The idea that the missing heat is being absorbed by the deep ocean is hardly ad hoc. It’s observed. And it’s hardly “new”; we’ve known the deep ocean has been heating up for a while. This is also happening at the same time that we’re seeing relatively cooler surface temperatures in the Pacific ocean, which cools the air. That’s part of a natural cycle, with ocean surface temperatures going up and down over time. For the moment, that effect is greater than the overall warming trend of surface temperatures, so we see a flattening. And despite Delingpole simply dismissing this idea, recent computer models which incorporate the cooler Pacific waters have been able to reproduce this temperature flattening effect pretty well, too (shown in the inset graph), strengthening our understand of how the ocean affects land surface temperatures.

When we cycle back into warmer surface temperatures, the land surface temperature will go back up. We’ve seen this happen before, over and again in the past. You have to be careful not to make any long-term claims about that either; scientists are careful to average over both cooler and warmer cycles to look at the overall trend. Denialists love short-term trends, because they can cherry-pick them to make it look like temperatures are stable or even dropping, when in reality the overall trend is up, up, up.

So the computer models aren’t “bunk”, as Delingpole claims. They’re pretty good, and our best bet for figuring out what’s going on. They get better at doing so over time, too.

When an employer chooses to offer health care benefits to their employees, the cost comes out of the business' revenues. When Congress passes legislation that allows they and their staffers to receive a subsidy available to no other American, they certainly don't pay for it - we the TAXPAYERS do. It is still hypocrisy that we get to pay for.
You also pay for all the workers leaning on their shovels along the roadways all over the country. LOTS of perks are available to some workers that are not available to others. Mountains out of mole hills that what this is and its getting really old.

You want to be concerned about wasteful spending take a look at what shutting down the government for just one day costs taxpayers and they get NOTHING in return.

So now you are wanting to go to war with the government of the United States of America because your side lost and election. And all your friends click the agree button, that happens all the time in places like Egypt. Never even been discussed in this democracy until now!@! You idiots lost, get over it move on and get your people elected and change things.

Why won't that happen, you are in the minority today and the more you pout and cry the less chance you have of ever changing anything, get over it.

It is very plain to see what has and is happening in Washington, D.C.
This country is being run by the Democratic Socialist Party and many of the old time elite Republican's in name only.
There is only one party and if anyone such as Cruz, Ron Paul or any others speak their mind and try to break away and fight for what is good for America they are quickly admonished by their own so called party and the news media.
There is no two party system anymore.
It is just one party disguised as two. This has should have become obvious even to the faithful Republican voters.
It is time for the Tea Party to actually form a conservative political party. That thought drives fear into the socialists knowing that it would probably drive them from power and all the good old boys from their ivory perches. That includes all the Democratic Socialists and the fake Socialist Republicans. That is why both parties hate the Tea Party. Both parties are too dirty to trust anymore.
If American's had taken the stand that the Republican Party takes, we would still be under British rule. There would never have been the American Revolution which freed us from their rule. If African Americans had just sat back and waited for the exact right time and country to do what was right they would still be waiting. That is what the Republican Party wants us to do. Think about that for awhile.

Yeah, in America when people express an opinion they run the risk of someone else expressing an opposing opinion, that's how Freedom of Speech works. Cruz, Rubio, and any yahoo teabagger can express their opinions all day and night, dosn't mean that anyone has to agree with them.
.....
"It is time for the Tea Party to actually form a conservative political party."

Let's see, the teabagger contingent is a minority faction of the Republican Party and you expect them to form their own viable thrid party. Heck, if they could have done that they wouldn't be riding under the Republican banner.

I would expect and expected such a reply from a socialist as yourself. It frightens you and others such as yourself that Americans might actually have a party to vote for that might represent them.
Lets face the truth you and other socialist/communist want only one real political party. That is the Democratic Socialist Party and it's secret allies such as the RINO run Republican Party with the help of the Socialist news media.

Nice try, but you missed by a mile.

It doesn't scare me one bit, whether you call it the Tea Party, the Libertarian Party, the American Independent Party, or the John Birch party nothing is stopping anyone from forming a 3rd, 4th, or 5th political party.

Riddle me this,
if the Tea Party is such a threat to the Democrats or the Republicans, then why didn't they form their own party back in 2009. Nothing forced the Tea Party to run under the wing of the Republicans, that was a choice they made, and it was choice that Republicans made to court the extreme right.

By the way, teabagger was what they called themselves in the beginning until the yahoos realized what the term's sexual conotations were.

By the way, you just used the term teabagger and used it in a hateful derogatory way, knowing the sexual meaning. You socialist are a mean and uncaring bunch.
Also it is quite difficult to get a organization or party of the ground with the White House giving orders to the IRS to stop any attempts of the Tea Party to organize. No money means no organization. You socialist also play dirty.
Furthermore I don't care what organization starts a third party as long as it is a conservative/libertarian party that believes in the Constitution and liberty of the American people.

The models? The Models? Are these models produced by the same pin heads that produce the tropical storm models? Yeah pretty much they are. Ever seen these? The only point ever in agreement is the static, from there all bets are off.
You seem to have no understanding that "man made" climate change is a theory and one that has all those who find fault with the science and/or the conclusions are silenced and vilified.
I thought scientists were, by nature inquisitive and willing to look at all evidence. Perhaps that's my Pollyanna understanding of science. It appears that the agenda is more important that real science. But that's what happens when economists rather than scientists are given grants to produce specific results.

Talk about personal agendas. You think that Obama , Biden, Reed, Clinton, and Pelosi do not have a personal agenda to move this country towards a European style Socialist country? If you don't there is something wrong with your thought pattern. I think we all know the answer to that.
Btw I have no group to watch evaporate. None exist at this time that has any power to do anything. I don't call them anything because of now there is only one party disguised as two parties and neither of them are helping hard working Americans or this country.
I am sure if a new party tries to get a foothold, the Obama Administration will stop them by using the IRS again.
Yes of this moment, all I and many other Americans can do is dream of a new honest conservative third party to try and save this country from destruction.

Its strange to me that a person so wrong can even imagine the are right. Everyone is lying to you, and you sitting here in Georgia not mattering at all in the big pictures think you have all the answers. I just can't understand how you are being missed, you are such a find and a wonderful intellect.

Just a little hint, scientists don't look at short term trends, it's the long term that matters when it concerns climate change. 15 years in the history of man is a blink of the eye. You blinked, I saw it>

The Tea Party didn't "choose to run" under the wing of the Republican Party, the vast majority of those who identify as Tea Party are conservative Republicans who are trying to bring the party back to the conservative agenda that this country needs. They are tired of the Republican establishment who seem content to let Democrats ruin this country as long as they get their little perks.

I am certainly not embarrassed that the Tea Party was unaware of the vulgar connotation that the Left was so quick to pick up on.
