That is a bit one sided. The land (47% of Palestine) was granted to them as a homeland for reparations of the Holocaust. Maybe a bit 'post facto' but still legal. The Palestinians backed the wrong horse.
But of course, I cannot defend the naked land grab that has gone on since. They 'took' 78%, exceeding the land grant by a wide margin. They currently 'control' 100% and they continue to expand settlements on 'occupied' territories that violates the Geneva Convention and is totally ILLEGAL in international law. And they continue to violate Palestinian rights with impugnity and some disdain. I value the Jewish friends I have, but the current STATE of Israel is nothing I can approve of.

Co2 and sunlight are fifth grade science project material. Did you sleep through it?
Co2 levels have exploded in the last century along with the industrial revolution. Been asleep again?
I love reading ignorance like this couched in condescention. Ignoring the fact that CO2 levels in the past have been 5 times higher than they are today, even manbearpig, er Al Gore's graphs show increased CO2 levels follow warming, which means it is impossible to be the cause.

Get out of here, no-polymath.

Your words don't mean a thing in science without evidence. And you have NONE.

Ice core samples prove the CO2 levels, what isn't proven 1 bit is that increased CO2 emissions cause warming and especially that Man is in any way responsible for climate change.

If you wish to remain a fool in ignorance, that is your perogative.

You're right. Ice core samples have demonstrated that not only were there periods in history, prior to homo sapiens, that had higher CO2 levels, there were also periods of warming more intense than those recorded in the last few decades.

And as always, the global warming crowd does not take in to consideration the findings of geologists, astronomers, astrophysicists, and other cosmological scientists that have a good deal of evidence that throws a number of other factors in to the mix that affect the Earth's atmosphere. These include solar activity, one of the biggest factors, gravitational effects of the other planets and other space born bodies, cosmic radiation from outside the solar system and even the distant effects of the black hole that is very probably at the center of our galaxy. All of these things and more play a part in the development of Earth. hinging their results on just the observations of a few decades or even centuries of observation is not science. It is more akin to guessing.

The best part is even when the evidence points to the opposite conclusion, as in the latest IPCC study, they think that people will buy their crap.... New Improved Global Warming: now with increased sea ice coverage and cooler temperatures, LOL!

I just love it when a denier tries to sound all sciency and presents stupid shite and glaring mistakes while doing so.

This moron is either so clueless as to think that climate scientists ignore solar activity or thinks you are.

As for some of his other arguments? He's simultaneously stating a fallacious argument from ignorance and proposing causations that are laughably improbable.

I also enjoy it when science deniers present what they believe to be bulletproof arguments ("it is impossible") that completely rest on fallacious reasoning so obvious that small children would be appalled.

Here's an analogy for you, Obtuse Pokeman - "Chickens cannot possibly lay eggs because chickens have been observed to hatch from eggs."

Prediction: Not one of you science denying ftards will have the intellectual honesty to admit how hard the Obtuse One's argument blows. Not one. Not even when I've preemptively revealed how this failure provides evidence that deniers are not interested in the truth.

I would like to be proved wrong but experience says that your pathologies are stronger than your dedication to denial.

BTW, there is a rational conclusion to be reached from CO2 increases lagging warming episodes caused by multiple other forcing functions. That is that there is a CO2 based positive feedback that amplifies warming - including warming caused by CO2 in the first place. I guarantee that no science denier will admit to that obvious conclusion.

You have not made any rational argument for these claims.

You made an hilariously irrational argument for one, but that doesn't count.

"Yikes"Kyle you're just a want to be scientist and also a little brat boy that thinks nobody can deny his little dream world.
Or maybe you're a pizzed off Android that just thinks he has to control everybody.....lol
Or maybe you been taking to many of them testosterone pills.
Because you're one little mean boy,oh gee I just got it your a short guy.HAHAHAHA

Welcome to the thread, "Poly"!! You'll see a lot of warmist religious freaks here. When posed with actual observations and facts, they always play the 'condescend' card.

pssssst......no intellectual honesty either. Some even perpetuate lies that have been proven wrong time and again.(1)

(1) See Spaced Blues willful dishonest claims.

No point in responding to this proven liar......and trolly troll.

LOL

Yet....."kyle" thinks his opinions outweigh scientific observations!!

It's like...."HI! I'm KYLE! I'm willfully ignorant....and I love it"!!!
