Ahem.

Reality isn't on your side, Sandi. Either you know that (disingenuous) or you don't (dim). I'm not sure which is more tiresome.

There is plenty of cherry-picking by warenists as well, so get off yer also stupidly wrong high horse.

so, one picture proves you're right, but decades of peer-reviewed data is 'cherry-picked'.

How does gravity work in your world?

Last week I was a warmenist. Today, I'm a warenist.

What's a person to believe around here?

Oh my! At that rate of letter loss, you'll be nothing but a single vowel in less than two months! I knew climate change was serious, but I had no idea it would actually cause snoqueen to melt!

Well, my poles may melt but my sea level will increase. I'm kinda looking forward to that part. Also everyone will find out what I am hiding under the ice on Greenland.

Global cooling!

I can't believe Sandi didn't post this fine piece of journalism yet.

Global warming? No, actually we're cooling, claim scientists

Which scientists? A math professor from the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee? Which research centers? Other experts agree with what?

Sigh.
So. Easily. Debunked.
My favorite part (and the one which most clearly demonstrates both the author's total lack of credibility and his obvious devotion to an idea, regardless of what the facts really are):
The third claim is that the IPCC had to hold a “crisis” meeting because—get this—Rose’s articles in The Mail have caused such a furor. Such a claim would be fascinating if it were true. But Ed Hawkins, a UK climate scientist, says he explained to Rose there was no such “crisis” meeting via email and on the telephone while being interviewed by Rose for the article! This didn’t stop Rose from making the claim anyway.


That's some mighty fine journalism right there, Mr. Rose, I tell you what.

And if you want proof. Well the warmenists and alarmists say it is so. What more proof would anyone need!?

The 30 some pages of proof provided in this thread. By the way, you said way back that...

I prefer to tackle climate change and be correct, an answer you didn't allow for.


How do we tackle it?

That is up to you. However I would suggest an open mind.

Or you could tackle it the way progressives tackle politics, by bullying. Oh wait, you do!

Please tell me what this has to do with climate change and stop attacking the messenger.

So it's up to me, but when you don't agree with me(us) we're totally wrong and bullying. Way to not answer a question. I wonder if there is a term for someone who doesn't answer questions in the Urban Dictionary.
