    No. When you post something which is obviously false I will be here to point out the error.

    Did you hear that? That was your taxes about to skyrocket.

    Do I think we can be smart and avoid a tax rise through relocation of funds within the government and the implementing of better sources for revenue like legalizing marijuana? Yes, and hopefully we do.

    The world's climate has not warmed for 15 to 17 years. How long will this not warming have to happen for you to think that the hypothesis of AGW might be wrong?

    If it gets colder for the next 5 years will you then admit that it was all a load of bull?

    At what point will you think that it's shown to be wrong? That's a science type question.
    For some reason, the National Snow and Ice Data Center doesn't agree with that 9 cm estimate concerning the Greenland Ice Sheet melting. A quick read thru the summary pages of the 2013 IPCC report also shows disagreement with your 9 cm estimate - unless you are talking about the next 10 years only.
    Ice sheets contain enormous quantities of frozen water. If the Greenland Ice Sheet melted, scientists estimate that sea level would rise about 6 meters (20 feet).

    Climate Myth: Global Warming stopped in 1998
    From the IPCC's 5th report 13.3.3.1
    Observations indicate that the Greenland contribution to GMSL has
    very likely increased from 0.09 [–0.02 to 0.20] mm yr–1 for 1992–2001
    to 0.59 [0.43 to 0.76] mm yr–1 for 2002–2011 (Section 4.4.3, Figure
    13.4). The average rate of the Antarctica contribution to sea level rise
    likely increased from 0.08 [–0.10 to 0.27] mm yr–1 for 1992–2001 to
    0.40 [0.20 to 0.61] mm yr–1 for 2002–2011 (Section 4.4.3). For the
    budget period 1993–2010, the combined contribution of the ice sheets
    is 0.60 [0.42 to 0.78] mm yr–1.
    It's changed from the draft report which I started a thread on.

    The 0.6mm per year is 6cm per century.

    Do you have any science which suggest that the entire Greenland ice sheet is at all likely to melt or are you just putting that out there to cause needless alarm?

    How about ending subsides for companies and foreign nations?

    Legalize pot, tax it, fix schools and roads with it.

    Did you hear that? That was your taxes about to skyrocket.

    After a historically cold winter filled with alarmists quick to warn that weather isn't climate we get this alarmist screed claiming, over the course of 1200 pages, that weather is climate.

    Not only that, but as the globe has warmed over the last 150 years -- saving us from the famine, pestilence and death of the Little Ice Age -- statistics show that drought, hurricanes, floods and other extreme weather is actually declining.

    I am still not sure if Obama is a complete and utter liar or if, in cases like this, he is just too stupid know the difference.

    Since this is a big deal, why isn't anyone suggesting across the board limits on power consumption, rationing of gasoline, and population controls?

    If your recommendation is a total reduction in CO/2, then that should be your stance.

    The world hasn't gotten warmer for a stretch because solar activity decreased, offsetting the positive forcing caused by greenhouse emissions.
