    I can’t believe it’s hot today!!!
    Just more leftist propaganda.

    I have noticed that the runoff from glaciers has increased greatly due to runaway warming. If the runoff was the same or reduced and the glaciers were retreating, then I would have to observe this as proof that the glaciers were not being fed, rather than that they were succumbing to increased heat, as the most reliable of sources, my political leaders and news editors have hastened to assure me. I sat down to do the math on how much heating would be required to decrease a stable and dynamic glacial system to the degree observed, but decided that the mathematics were a lie, just like the laws of thermodynamics. A benevolent group whose only goal is world peace and the salvation of mankind by global domination would never lie to me.

    We’re on the road toward the Sixth Extinction. When the world really turns against us there may be no way to turn it back. Have a nice day…

    The sun warms the Earth, but climate change is not caused by the sun. This sort of thing has been studied by scientists. If the sun were suddenly hotter, there are ways to measure that, and it simply hasn’t happened. We are burning fossil fuels. CO2 is a known greenhouse gas. CO2 is at the highest level ever in human existence, and is ramping up constantly. The Earth is at it’s warmest point in thousands of years, and the rate of change is unprecedented in known history. There is no point in that chain of causality that has not been scientifically proven, yet conservatives point at the chain and say “that cannot possibly be true,” yet cannot point to a single valid problem with the overwhelming evidence. Conservatives are less credible on this than on most of their drivel.

    It’s too bad we can’t do something about the sun warming us. Dang sun keep messing things up.

    @ARodney

    Wrong, CO2 levels have been many times higher before, check the ice samples. When CO2 levels were higher is was much much colder.

    Your graph shows “temperature oscillations”, not actual temperatures. Why is that?

    I’m Coraryan, and I still can’t understand the difference between weather and climate.

    Notice that the low points of your chart correspond with previous extinction dates.

    Time for you to go back to school. The sun does change and there are records to prove it. It runs in cycles. Man’s contribution amounts to less than 1%. Good luck making your change.

    “Actually, if one is going to deny global warming, there are two magic words one must say. Sadly, I haven’t heard a single denier use either of them.”


    Does it start with F and ends with World (though that would be three words and they say it all the time, just not outright)?

    The sun changes to what exactly? Genders?

    I love it when anti-science folks fold scientific cherry picking with ignorance, and shout, “There you have it in a nutshell!” Yup, I see the nut for sure! www.realclimate.org

    @me9970…because of “particulates” reflecting more energy than retained by CO2…

    A survey of the scientific literature has found that between 1965 and 1979, 44 scientific papers predicted warming, 20 were neutral and just 7 predicted cooling. Some of the 7 later admitted errors and retracted their conclusions.
