While he may or may not be correct in his assumptions, how does that disprove that CO2 is driving the warming today? That is the question. There are many things that can affect the temperature of the Earth. What drivers of climate change back in that time period are working today? If you can answer that, then perhaps there is some merit to what junkscience tries to intimate.
It is also interesting to note that an entire civilization was totally decimated 4000 years ago due to climate change.

So weak. Pitiful.

Climate change was a key ingredient in the collapse of the ancient Harappan civilization almost 4,000 years ago, a new study suggests.

<quoted text>what can you do to alter the climate now that civilization couldn't 4000 years ago. you insist that mitigation will do the trick. i don't buy it.
Until you can equate causes of the climate change of 4000 years ago with what is happening today, your argument is without merit. But of course you have never understood science and logic.

Abbott is an Australian Tea bagger, the Australian's don't get to choose their leader, the party chooses them, the former leader who was a supporter of climate change but got rolled because of it but only lost by 1 vote in the party room. The Australian's DO NOT WANT Abbott to drop the carbon tax and it is still in place the bill has been knocked back 2 times already and he may have to call an election on it and in which case he will loose. At the moment this idiot is Australia's big embarrassment and obviously shares that with Canada's PM as well.

Don't make yourself look more foolish than you already have. Contrary to what you feel, there are some very bright people out here that are much smarter than you and many of your scientists. They have a consensus of their own, based on the facts as they see them. Now you're a denier.

Obama is working with an economy that was a hospital pass from Bush. Anything he wants to change about that economy your side WILL NOT let him. So he is stuck with the status quo, a government run by powerful lobby groups and big business interests. So all the tweaking to the economy has to be done with the same rusty ole toolbox that was left to him. He needs a new tool box, the only way that will happen is a congress that is more innovative & progressive thinking. Not likely to happen from the GOP so expect more of the same and the divide will become even greater. Trickle down is a myth!

This is not a critique/analysis of "research".
It's pointing out an error in a blog.
A blog which misrepresents climate research.
Do you have anything to say regarding Roy Spencer's choice of period and start and end dates for the baseline of his analysis yet?
Once again little troll, you're dodging.

No you are making this statement because it's what you want to believe. Science has shown that man is accelerating this heat way beyond the normal natural cycles and as a consequence of that we can expect extreme weather on far more frequent basis than any time in man's history.

Now this is what you refuse to believe or accept no matter how many people are saying it.

I see, so MY money earn't after the country provides roads & infrastructure plus some of the best education facilities in the world that provides employees for MY company all belongs to ME! This is how you tea baggers think, it is beyond greed, it's ideology gone haywire.
For every dollar you empower the bottom end of the food chain it goes straight back into the economy, that's what creates jobs not million dollar exec's salaries.
In most countries 25 to 35% is the average tax rate and 40%+ for high income earners over a certain bracket. But the point is, research scientists get paid peanuts compared to a wall st jockey and in the end who is the most valuable to the country. Someone who comes up with a cure for cancer or the guy who works out an algorithm for derivative products.
Yes, that's why they are bankrupt and running across our borders.........get your GED.
