Exactly and he will even deny science in one post that he used in another.

I just get tired of:

1. The AGW crowd says the Arctic Ice is diminishing.
2. The other side points out that the Antarctic ice fields are increasing.
3. The AGW crowd then accuses the other side of using just one area of the world to make their point.

Good summary!

It was kind of amusing at first, but now I find the alarmists to be irritating. Especially when they say we have to "control" or "stop" climate change/global warming within 10 years or it will be "too late." Do they really believe that? Well, I guess they do!

A simple word explanation of the science.

Reduced salinity surface water in the North Atlantic reduces heat transfer from the ocean to the atmosphere.

Two mechanisms.
One it tends to push the currents further south.
Two it floats on top of the denser higher salinity sea water and reduces heat transfer that way. The denser higher salinity water being warmer having come from the equator.

This is widely accepted science.

I'm not disagreeing with what they say will happen if it gets warmer. I've just taken a look at what may very well happen if it gets cooler. And in the absence of AGW we would still be in the little ice age. As it turned into the big ice age.

No, it is the new AGW talking point you are just not up to speed on it yet. Or rather it is the old one revisited.

Warmer is better.

And is it this that tells you the melting Greenhouse ice sheet will cause a glaciation period? Check this out... Climate Science Investigations South Florida - Temperature Over Time

Here is another recent paper published in Nature last year supporting this:

Spread in model climate sensitivity traced to atmospheric convective mixing -Nature 2014


Climate science 'skeptics' like Roy Spencer and Richard Lindzen continue to claim that clouds produce a net negative (cooling) feedback despite the fact that the evidence has already shown them to be wrong. The evidence against this 'skeptic' claim has been stacking up for some time now.
1.5 deg to 5 deg C. That is quite a range. And here is the kicker. If you get an increase in run off into the North Atlantic that is significantly higher than modeled, then you could well drop the lower limit on global warming prediction to be negative. That is the increase in sea ice from the increase in run off completely offsetting the reduction in heat loss from the added CO2.

I Love the AGW crowd....


Hottest summer's temps ever recorded....

Coldest winters temps every recorded....

All in the same year....

IT must be great to say that it's all because of global warming, hell you can never be wrong....why not be on that side...

It's to cold...global warming...

It's to hot....global warming...
You cannot be wrong...ever....

Amazing....

That was the mechanism that would explain a Younger Dryas type event. The Younger Dryas event occurred in an otherwise warming environment. What we have now is an overall cooling environment aside from AGW.
Thank you for the very useful links. This time I will put them where I can find them again because this is an unreliable place to leave useful information as it gets lost.

See what they are saying is that the relative level of water change is 1~2 inches or so. Speed up a current a bit or slow it down a bit and that will be more powerful of a signal than the average rise.

It didn't stop. We are still inside of the swings that have been going on for the last 8,000 years of gradual cooling. Or not that far above them, yet. The 1970's was when it was identified and published not when it started.
