[QUOTE who="Science Fact = B as in B S as in S = Anti Christ = dont drink the koolaid = Cut n Paste"]Science Fact:
"There is no historically significant temperature rise. Temperatures for 17 years have plateaued. Sea levels have not risen. There has been the opposite of desertification. Arctic and Antarctic ice is expanding. Polar bears are thriving. There are less tornadoes. There are fewer tropical storms of any degree. This past July (and this January) has set new records for low temperatures across America. Charting solar activity and actual temperature variance on the same chart are almost mirror images, unlike any of the projections of warmists."

My, you do enjoy posting absolute rubbish about a subject you don't understand over and over again, so much so that you need to use multiple sock puppets.

Sadly there are people like the gwpf who love to fill your empty head with lies and to have you spread them round the internet.

But they are such obvious lies that eventually there is going to be a lot of public anger that they were told.

No, global warming didn't stop 17 years ago.

Neither did sea level rise:

Arctic and Antarctic ice is certainly not expanding

"CLIMATE CHANGE" IS A FACT.
Late to the touched toxic topix AGW denier party, "science farts" repeats what touched toxic topix AGW deniers have posted for a decade. "science farts" never figured out that AGW science states the same as it does. Yeah, "science farts" is way, way behind the power curve.

AGW science does say that recent warming has no viable explanation WITHOUT inclusion of man-made, non-phase change infra-red energy absorbing GHGs, that also control phase change infra-red energy absorbing GHG water vapor increases. On top of that, are the primary & secondary feedbacks to GHG increases.

Low down on gwpf, source of koolaid's lies:

Funding not transparent; just 1.6% comes from memberships

The Global Warming Policy Foundation does not reveal where its funding comes from.[6] In their first years accounts they say "the soil we till is highly controversial, and anyone who puts their head above the parapet has to be prepared to endure a degree of public vilification. For that reason we offer all our donors the protection of anonymity".[7] The accounts show the extent to which the secretive Foundation is funded by anonymous donors, compared with income from membership fees. Its total income for the period up to 31 July 2010 was £503,302, of which only £8,168 (or 1.6%) came from membership contributions. The foundation charges a minimum annual membership fee of £100.[8]

In 2012, the Guardian exposed Lawson's links to coal-fired power companies in Europe.[9]

gwpf and coal; coal and gwpf:

What links climate change sceptic Lord Nigel Lawson and Europe's biggest single source of carbon pollution, the Belchatow coal-fired power station in Poland? A pretty straightforward business connection, all documented on public websites and set out below, is the answer.

But Lord Lawson's prompt explanation as to why this is a silly "non-issue" is not straightforward, in my opinion. It can be summarised as: it was all a long time ago, in a land far away and, in any case, how dare you doubt the word of a peer of the realm. I wrote back and asked why the information linking Lord Lawson to the filthy power station remains on the relevant websites, if it was such a long time ago and so far away. The response this time was silence.

I also asked whether it was appropriate for climate change sceptic Professor Ian Plimer to remain on the "academic advisory council" of Lord Lawson's thinktank, the Global Warming Policy Foundation, after his appointment as a director to a large Australian coal company?

Lord Lawson replied: "It may be that, given his new responsibilities, Professor Plimer will choose to step down; but that is a matter for him." Very gentlemanly, I'm sure. When I asked whether it might actually be a more of a matter for the GWPF itself, the silence remained unbroken.

I asked Professor Plimer if he was going to resign - more silence - and as of today, he remains firmly in place at the GWPF.

You don't know what an "intelligent" comment is, either. Or a typo. But that's not why you're here, is it, Denier? You're here to lie, propagandize, attack, obfuscate. The truth is not in you and science is your enemy.

As with all Deniers...

This means there is no geologic evidence to support the prediction that Man's burning of fossil fuels will cause a tipping point toward Catastrophic Runaway Global Warming.

That, once again is the point.:-)

Never happened and we only have your opinion that it is/will happen.

Good luck, you will need it.

What website or author would you recommend I read to become more educated on Global Warming?
How much has the temperature on Earth risen over the 20th century or the last decade?
What does Global Warming mean? Atmospheric or water temperature rise? Or both?

The only "point" you have is atop your head, Denier. You've proven nothing, cited nothing, and you've GOT nothing.

Dismissed.

1. http://www.nrdc.org/globalwarming/

2. http://www.climatechoices.org.uk/images/globa...

3. That the average worldwide temperature has increased over time.

4. Water temperature has risen far more: http://science.time.com/2013/11/01/oceans-war...

Hope that helps..

This is the only site you need. It shows just how powerful and apocalyptic anthropoglobalclimategenicwarm ingchange really is! I irge you to become fully acquainted with the potential consequences and take appropriate preventive measures for all of them. As for me, I'll have another beer.
