    Oh well, I suppose this is the price one pays when one plays with the intellectually less fortunate.

    Which of the varying degrees of sea level rise, which you've stood up this evening, would you like to settle upon? I only ask beause of the post prior to the one you're crowing about above, you had SL rising 18" in 85 years… only to return in your next rhetorical breath to celebrate a 'reported' 6" rise in SL over a CENTURY.

    Yeah. That's not a contradiction.

    Look up the word 'accelerating' and get back to me.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    "Since records began."

    So, how long would that be, using instruments as standardized, calibrated and accurate as ours today?

    Mid 1800s, roughly. Thermometers were pretty damn accurate back then, and the Victorians were pretty anal on measurements.

    But good data exists to suggest its warmer than anytime in the last 11,000 years.

    Thanks for asking.

    Even if the instruments n the mid 1800s were exquisitely accurate, and by our standards they weren't, there would have been no reliable way to calibrate them so that they were in agreement to a similar degree. Even clocks wee set to different times in towns a few miles apart.

    Good data is not conclusive data, nor is it proof of cause.

    For instance, England once had a large wine exports, and vineyards were grown in Greenland.


    I am skeptical of AGW for many reasons, not the least of which is our abyssal record of predicting much of anything through science. We can't predict with accuracy the weather, earthquakes, the progress and appearance of new diseases, the behavior of galaxies, the behavior of individual subatomic particles, economic trends, human behavior or the likelihood of a happy marriage.

    And yet, governments and the academic institutions that they fund wish to seize and exercise unprecedented power to control a climatological trend that they tell us that they can predict accurately. No one gullible enough to fall for this without great skepticism can afford to feed and house themselves for long if they are equally gullible where their money is concerned.

    and no amount of trying to change the subject, no amount of ranting about how important the sun may be, is going to change it into a real argument.

    Of course the sun is important! If that's what you're trying to argue, then it shouldn't be too hard.
    You entirely miss my point on that. It doesn't surprise me.

    Anyone here that understand science?

    You can not back up your statement, and that doesn't surprise me.
    Yes, I have an understanding of how the scientific process works, but that isn't the question. The question is, just who ever said that the sun doesn't matter?

    The thermometers were actually very accurate and calibrated. There weren't too many though, but British Naval records are pretty useful here.

    Either way, its confirmed and backed up by temperature proxies that prove the temperature is rising faster than ever before. This isn't a disputed scientific point.

    I actually think science has a fantastically good record of predictions. In drug discovery, I'm constantly amazed at chemists designing a molecule that inhibits an enzyme exactly as they say it will. And that inhibition, dontcha know, does pretty much what the physiologists and biologists say it will. It's science.

    You said scientists are saying the sun "doesn't matter" but have yet to back up that statement in any way. So which is it. Are they saying the sun "doesn't matter" or are they saying the sun doesn't matter as much as you think it matters?

    Because there's an enormous difference between those two statements, and you don't get to whine about "understanding science" if you can't properly distinguish the two.
