It's always a hoot to see them twist and turn, duck and dodge, hurling insults and calling names, when you ask them for proof. And surprising to see how long they keep doing it, as they are here.
They cut their own throats.


The funny thing about subterfuge and misinformation is that it is only successful for a short period of time (ie before a direct action is taken). After that, people begin to question and look closer. That is when it all falls apart.

I don't know specifically what "direct action" was intended or if there was ever a specific focus, but the lingering of such approach is the death rattle for any such mischievous application. What is worse for them is that such usually results in a massive backlash that will even effect legitimate concerns and factual evidence. For that, I wish them a very miserable place in hell.

Though by now I'm getting pretty used to these histrionics.

Say something interesting and it'll renew my respect for you. Nomander at least is creative with his insults.

As for theoretical mathematics, it is a noble pursuit. It serves as a means of thinking outside the box, but we know the difference is that it is not evidential in the physical world, and only an idiot would attempt to proclaim so.

You need to learn the difference.
You ask, its given, you ignore. Repeat as needed.

Are you sure you have taken beyond sophomore mathematics? Because you are a big fan of circular arguments.

As usual, no proof was given... as I have pointed out. Just studies that referred to other studies, ad infinitum. (yawn)

If I were a fan of circular arguments, I'd accept the ones you keep offering as "proof".

(Did someone mention "sophomore mathematics"?)

And the twisting, spinning, ducking and dodging of the Global Whatever fanatics continues........

It might be time for Galactic Gorilla.



Looking forward to the next climate change thread so we can all have this conversation over again.

Your mentor, Herr Goebbels, would be proud of you for carrying out his advice so thoroughly.

"If you tell a big enough lie, often enough, people will believe it, and it will become The Truth."

Godwin's Law FTW!

Talk about mathematical truths.

That is all you have, is accusations, which is why you live in the past and refuse to accept anything that shows such accusations to be garbage.

What next Mr. Wizard, going to show us some graphs from 2007 ice melt and pass it off as the present. You guys are really pathetic.
As the world’s governments dither on climate change, data continue to stream in on the alarming rate of warming. Global surface temperatures for 2010 matched record highs, with the past decade the hottest ever recorded. Arctic ice cover continued its precipitous decline in 2010, attaining the lowest measured extent for any December on record and third lowest in summer. And the amplifying effect of this snow and ice melt is larger than previously thought, according to new research.

“The 2010 data confirm the Earth’s significant long-term warming trend,” according to World Meteorological Organization chief Michel Jarraud. “The ten warmest years on record have all occurred since 1998.” Evidence of intensifying climate change grows

I find it amusing that you complain about "Watts up with that" and then link me an article that fails to even site the research and work to which they lay claim and is made by a political organization.

You guys don't even get how silly you look, which really is the hilarious thing.
