    Planet isn't getting warmer if you look at the last 20 years comparitvely. This summer has been awfully nice too.

    Further evidence, if any more were needed, that climate change is a reality. Sure, the climate change deniers, like all conspiracy theorists, will deny any evidence put before them. Hopefully this new evidence will make some people to see the reality.

    The alarmist stupidity!!

    Lets do a little math here... 1850-2010 is 160 years. Life on planet earth has been around for at least 2 billion years. So your 160 years of research is apx .00000008% of potential data that could be used to study climate. Which would be equivalent to .0000292 of a day or about .0007 hours.. which is about .042 of a minutes.. or.... 2.52 seconds.

    You want to base an entire climate theory on 2.52 seconds of data over a years time, be my guest.

    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    The climate reconstructions using temperature proxies (tree rings,C14, coral drilling, ice cores, etc, etc) show that the recent temperature is higher than it ever has been in the last 11000 years, and CO2 levels haven't been this high in millions of years. Temperatures have certainly been higher, especially when all that buried CO2 was in the atmosphere instead of locked up in coal beds.

    The rise in temperature is amazingly fast in geologic time- 100 years vs orders of magnitude more.

    So the theory is based on a whole lot more than the current temperature record.
    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.

    LOL...

    One study may show that, but others disagree.

    Ok... but much of the data that comes from tree rings is no where near as reliable as data that we have today. Even with the preciseness of the data we have today, we still have a hard time figuring out how climate works. So data we get from tree rings (which is data scattered across the planet and across large swaths of time) is not good enough to determine climate over that missing range of data.

    No. It's MULTIPLE studies using MULTIPLE proxies.

    Not just tree rings. But then again, why would you know this, since you've seemed to stop wanting to understand this and would rather just take predetermined position.

    science shows that, bloggers and pundits disagree.

    160 years isn't even an adequate sample size, not to mention some parts of the world didn't start keeping weather records until the 20's and 30's.... Of course then you have these so called "climatologists" who ignore data that doesn't jibe with the "global warming" theory..... Of course they have no reason to be honest considering they're being paid to continually spew AGW hence their lies are job security....

    Hey, lookie here.

    Some PhDs from Stanford disagree with your crack analysis.
