Ask him about the dinos and other extinctions.

Good grief.

King failed to receive a science or mathematics degree. Wonder if he had poor grades in science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc in his hi skule DEE-plooomaa.

He defended organizers of animal fights, representing his state.

It's going to be a lot of fun watching your heads explode from realizing how so many people could be misled so easily.

Generally in other countries, internment camps, etc. But you don't look or care.

It is more the 'change curve' as expounded by Elisabeth Kubler Ross. First comes denial. Then anger (they are still in the anger phase). After that is exploring and acceptance. Some will never move on but most of the intelligent denialists have dropped out and only a few are still consumed by anger that the world isn't the way they want it.

You may have noticed that the ones that are left are more vitriolic but have less cockeyed reasoning or even bad science in their posts. The main reasoning these days is to try to tear down science as a credible tool.

Yes, I haven't had to add anymore of their mathematics misdirections to the piled errors of 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, 3000 TIMES, 73 million TIMES, 500 million TIMES, 2.5+ trillion TIMES, & finally one thousand thousand thousand thousand thousand TIMES. I'm waitin'.

The author of the letter to the editor in chief of Science Magazine was written by Willis Eschenbach whose caught lying about temperature trends.

The Antarctic sea ice increase is significantly lower than the Arctic ice decrease. You should be looking at trends, not year to year data points.

"Indeed, King Arthur here pretty much depicts the skeptics. You warmists no longer have a leg to stand on. Sea ice is growing, global temperatures aren’t rising, RWP and MWP were warmer, sea level rise is constant, sensitivity is far lower…you blame cold on warming…"

"Love the way alarmists use the “30 year average” or longer for ice coverage, knowing full well that in the 70s arctic ice was so everywhere that some scientists were predicting an ice age."

A bit too quick to slander there, Bucko. It seems many more intentional, more current, outrageous distortions of data are attributable to those establishing your nonsense as relevant grant hogs. Much more relevant is a careful consideration of the current letter concerning Ms. McNutt. Is it correct? Is it relevant? Does it represent an inexcusable mediocrity?

The arrogance is astounding. More and more alarmists, major organizations and international scientific bodies are modifying their assertions and computer models to accommodate actual data and your projections reverse even that reality.

To update those interested in the actual truth about Eschenbach lying, or not... over a year after the worthless personal attack on him for daring to question the Darwin data, this peer review seems to confirm he was correct afterall:
https://diggingintheclay.wordpress.com/2011/0...

Then, to show what a remarkably forgiving and gracious man Eschenbach is, here is his own words discussing scientific method and the personalization of issues by those in retreat:
http://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/02/28/its-not...

Remember, the initial personal attack on Eschenbach was 12/09, the peer reviewed support of his assertions a year and two months later. Subsequently, the exposures of dishonesty and political pressures have redundantly shown Eschenbach and others concerned about data manipulation correct.

Talk to yourself about lying.

You lied big time in this post. All of it is unadulterated misinformation.

Is that how you can contribute to this forum?

At least, you didn't say all of science was predicting an ice age, like most toxic topix AGW deniers have said. Even in the 70's, when AGW science wasn't as positive, 44 Science Paper were published in Science Journals about global warming. During the same period, only 7 papers were written about global cooling.

This "at least" tone is patronizing and inappropriate. However, you children don't know much about the seventies. There was a very major multi-agency, CIA driven, Carter administration study done called Global 2000, a two tome publication. The overviews and arranged data sets predicted global cities under water, great desertification, societal breakdown and widespread starvation by the year 2000. That was the driving study. The reverse of desertification has taken place; there is no coastal flooding, food supplies and outreach to the third world has been improved, etc. The only thing holding the 1/3 of the world's population back in economic development now is the Left's extreme fear mongering about climate.

That's the same fear mongering, the same data manipulation, the same Leftist driven mania and pollution of science we've seen in the current maniacal claims. Meanwhile, the coldest July history and more dense ice sheets everywhere.

Here is how Obama and his Communists are practicing their racism and will keep 1/3 of the world's population in darkness and cooking with buffalo chips...

Here is how the AGW loons maintain their delusions... posting nonsense as real news, maintaining the nonsense after it is proved fake. After the emotional high is realized, the false belief becomes cemented in their dope altered minds.
