    Yes, please do explain it.

    Every place the AR4 talks about the 0.12 W/m^2 solar forcing, they call it "direct forcing." I'm sure you read my explanation on this in other threads, so tell me. What am I missing?

    Have you ever considered that the population density increases and satellite coverage makes it almost statistically impossible to miss climate events?

    I currently believe in AGW but that is actually a good point.

    Cool.

    Glad you don't deny science, and call others deniers...

    We have a fairly good idea of what warming would look like.
    We could predict warming oceans and acidification of oceans, which have increased acidity by 30% so far.
    We have models from thirty years ago that predicted what we would see today.
    Those models are pretty well spot on - with predictions of the warmest temperatures in the history of mankind proven.
    We are seeing the effect on biological systems worldwide.
    We have virtually every scientific organization known to man, and 90+ percent of the scientists who study this take it as fact.

    We have dozens of scientific journals with thousands of scientific papers that show these facts to be true and proven.

    What do you have? A blog? Or as one poster here has - sekrit writings that prove climate scientists are wrong? Or just gut feelings, as another poster has?
    LOL.

    Basic chemistry and physics that have proven nothing, man made. The most "proof" that has been offered is a documented lie. And the flat earth society still clings to the lie of man made global warming (just another fact Obama never bothered to check).
    Funny on how you missed one of the latest on how CO2 caused things to cool off the last ten years or so.......

    What do you have? That's right, nothing but well documented lies that some within a slice of the scientific community have conspired and collaborated with for their own personal agendas. Sorry, retelling the same worn out pack of lies isn't go reverse the trend and make the majority of people become suckers for that snake oil again. Are you in on the scam too?

    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.

    Those ten years also continued an extended period of accelerating global warming, with more national temperature records reported broken than in any previous decade. Sea levels rose about twice as fast as the trend in the last century.

    Unprecedented climate extremes marked last decade, says UN | Environment | guardian.co.uk

    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.
    No, once again when confronted with the weaknesses of the case for anthropogenic global warming, the alarmists change the subject.

    There is little dispute among knowledgable skeptics about the fact that the world is gradually warming (estimates of how fast vary).

    The unresolved questions are these: 1) What is causing the warming? 2) Is there anything even remotely feasible that mankind can do that will significantly alter this trend?

    Following the example of Matt Ridley, I accept the consensus on the theory of evolution because the available data supports that theory.

    I accept the consensus on most other areas of science for the same reason.

    I do not accept the consensus on AGW because, from what I can tell, the data and the methods of climate scientists do not adequately support that theory.

    That the .12 number is the net change in solar forcing over that period, not the total amount of solar energy. They aren't saying the sun "doesn't matter." They are saying it matters a lot, but it hasn't really changed much this century. (On average. It oscillated up and down a fair bit but more or less evens out)

    And why are "generic units" helpful?
    But, the tesearch has admittedly been faked to reach that conclusion.

    Oh snap!

    Sure they can have regional effect. In fact, while the Aral Sea was drying up there was large tracts of Russia becoming green and fertile. So what is the net change to global climate?
