    The current period of a 'plateau' of warming (i.e. we are equaling the warmest temperatures in the last 10,000 years this decade, but not exceeding them) can be at least partially be explained by variations in solar irradiance (the sun is at the lowest level of irrradiance in decades Deep Solar Minimum - NASA Science ) and the fact that the heat tends to be more pronouced in the oceans and in melting ice, which is clearly happening at a rapid rate.

    The earth is warming. Not a matter of dispute among scientists.
    The earth is warming at an unprecedented rate in human history. Also not really a matter of dispute.
    CO2 is causing at least some of the warming, if not the majority. Not in dispute.
    Pouring gigatons of CO2 into the atmosphere in the future will worsen global warming. Not in dispute.
    What to do about it? Thats in dispute, although there is no disputing that continuting to pour CO2 into the atmosphere is a bad idea.
    are they not the same scientist that was caught fudging data and e-mails surfaced to prove as much. i say follow the money look to see who provided the money for that research to be done

    Yes, that is one reason I continually point out they are speaking of matters they do not understand, and try to get them to understand at least the basics.

    I have really shaken the views of two individuals in a different forum who claimed to be climate scientists, of sorts. I believe both were/are in college for it. I only hope to lead people to the truth, over a matter that if we follow this path of unnecessary national spending, can only harm us.

    Well, CO2 radiate forcing increases are real with increased CO2. The problem is that the AGW community's dogma is based on CO2 being the primary cause of warming. At best, the 3rd cause. It is laughable that the range of solar changes cited by solar experts would only cause values as low as the 0.12 W/m^2 cited by the climate experts.

    One thing that is wrong about the climate sciences, is they do not set out to prove their claims, by trying to disprove them. I'm not real familiar with the computer sciences, especially to the level of a masters degree. Correct me if I'm wrong, but when you make a program, you don't just test it to make sure it does what you want. Don't you also test your program to see what it does under unusual circumstances, unexpected inputs, etc. to find as many bugs as possible? I have never seen the climate scientists try to break their own theories. All they do is change the models to make them fit past results, always using CO2 as the key variable, and then these models are never capable of predicting future results. Seems like that have a very low understanding of more than just solar...

    You seem to be motivated by a political agenda rather than a scientific premise owing to your generic descriptions and broad brushing of people who are actually looking at the issue of man made global warming objectivly.

    And still waiting for you to " destroy me " or my post or what have you.

    Bingo. 15 year Enterprise Architect experience(for the layman, its a fancy title for designing very large, Enterprise category computer systems) speaking here, you always test every piece of your system for positive and negative outcomes, as well as abnormalities(i.e. bad memory, file system errors, database corruption, etc ). And that is before you even bother with system testing or integration testing with other modules.

    They didn't claim to be climate scientists. They said that they had studied it as an undergrad.

    I'm not a big fan of argumentum ad auctoritatem, and I'm very much not someone who pretends to be an expert in a field which they know pretty much squat. It's pretty clear that your entire understanding of climate science is a strawman.

    Yes with programming you want strong input validation and for all possible code paths to react in the proper manner or else you get unintended behavior.

    If what you say about climate science is true then that is just bad science. I certainly hope the majority of the work doesn't function this way. You should never conduct work with the aim of it leading to a desired outcome, this is bad science 101. You're supposed to set everything up to the best of your ability to be accurate and then analyze the results and draw conclusions from that.

    I wish more people on this board would debate more in this manner of actually providing some kind of substance, plausible arguments that may be valid.

    Each of those periods you listed are averages. Averages include values greater than and values less than the average. Any decade with the highest average, will statistically have most of the highest temperatures as well.

    The stock market often uses language like "past performance does not guarantee future performance." Well guess what. Typically, we can expect such trends to continue, but only if we understand the trend we are looking at.

    There have been three distinct increases on solar activity. I normally only mention two, the ones from about 1713 to 1780, and from about 1900 to about 1950. however, following the first increase, was a decrease from about 1790 to about 1810, and another increase from about 1820 to about 1840. Now any effects the sun has also has lag times of at least 4 decades to see the majority of change it causes.

    I will suggest you do not discount the possibility that the last increase ending about 1950 has finally run it's course. The whole basis that temperatures will continue is based on the fantasy that CO2 is the primary driver of temperature change. If the primary driver of temperature change is the sun, then counting on CO2 increases is wrong...
    Seriously, do you really think climatologists don't take solar activity into account when they make there calculations? Seriously?

    Then you also visit that site and know who i talk about.

    Why is it clear? I will disagree with your assessment. I most certainly lack many parts of the science to be a climatologist. For one, I do not have faith in their religion. I do very clearly, understand the aspects I speak of, enough to know they are full of BS.

    I know they don't, at least in what they publicly release. If any of them have, I haven't seen that material. If you are aware of any, i would love to see it.

    Again, they only release "direct" solar forcing, and never say how much the indirect forcing is.
