quote: Regardless of where you stand on this issue, can we please stop giving credence to the ridiculous notion that whats happening weather-wise "in my backyard" has anything to say about global weather patterns.
quote: "See, the ice is melting". Uh, yeah... Its summer."
quote: You cant argue with a climate change disciple. That and the ice measurements taken in the summer... "See, the ice is melting". Uh, yeah... Its summer.
quote: I am referring to the well known instances of measuring particular ice sheets to where they were at times in the 80's and 90's. The decades old measurements were taken in the winter and current in the summer then they publish it pressing the alarms as they go "The ice is meling, we are all doomed". Then its back in the winter... That is not scientific, its designed to spread misinformation, and that is what pisses people off. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying we don't need to take steps, but potential man-made climate change isn't high on the list. We need to get off oil and go cleaner for alot of reasons...

quote: You patronizing proponents of climate change by appealing to their take on the supposed associated topics, politics/economy/blah blah does not give you a pass on your prior BS statements about misinformation.

quote: and going back for a hundred or more its apparent that they match rising CO2 levels much more closely then they do solar activity levels.
quote: Ok, how about Artic ice is at the thickest it has been in decades
quote: Places in US that pretty much never have snow have had crops destroyed by snow and ice. Britain has the coldest winter in decades. Parts of EU are also having record low temperatures.
quote: The high temps from 10 years ago were caused by solar activity, and the low temps now have the same cause. The sun has predictable cycles of high and low activity.
quote: The increase in volume is welcome, but does not reflect a reversal in the long-term decline, the scientists said."It's estimated that there was around 20,000 cubic kilometres (4,800 cu. miles) of Arctic sea ice each October in the early 1980s, and so today's minimum still ranks among the lowest of the past 30 years," said Andrew Shepherd, a professor at University College London, a co-author of the study.
quote: there is data to show some ice returning over the past few years.
quote: hmm... Yup, it checks out. BBC. But again not the point.
quote: quote: The high temps from 10 years ago were caused by solar activity, and the low temps now have the same cause. The sun has predictable cycles of high and low activity. We have very detailed observations about the sun's irradiance. Solar cycles result in variation of ~0.08% from min to max. That doesn't even explain 1/10th of a degree of warming.You are completely clueless about this topic. Stop embarrassing yourself.
