    Now, with all due respect to the political humorist site you linked to, it provided no evidence of your claim that the increased activity from the sun was causing global warming.

    Hey genius. Do you know what the word "global" means?

    Last year was second warmest global high temp in a decade.

    What is it with you people? Flunk grade school science or never took a science class?

    The lower 48 states account for a very small percentage of the earth's surface and a bend in the jet stream sends polar air screaming south creating snow out of what would normally be rain, and you f'ing genius's scream foul on global warming. For God's sake do some reading on meteorology so you don't look so f'ing stupid.

    Funny thats not what Jones says.

    THERE has been no global warming for 15 years, a key scientist admitted yesterday in a major U-turn.

    Professor Phil Jones, who is at the centre of the “Climategate” affair, conceded that there has been no “statistically significant” rise in temperatures since 1995.

    I'd sooner believe this ...
    The Global Warming Overview - Global Warming Statistics
    Than this "global warming myths", or anything from this site(s).
    We must remember that it takes a certain intellectual level to accept these things. The smart ones realize this and accept the data from the scientists . I guess the not-so-smart ones prefer Rush and Glen.

    The author of your article is misrepresenting what Jones actually said.
    Here from an interview with Jones, anyone can see that he is not denying the science behind GW is valid:

    "The climate expert at the centre of a media storm over the release of emails onto the internet has admitted that he did not follow correct procedures over a key scientific paper.

    In an interview with the science journal Nature, Phil Jones, the head of the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University East Anglia, admitted it was "not acceptable" that records underpinning a 1990 global warming study have been lost.

    The missing records make it impossible to verify claims that rural weather stations in developing China were not significantly moved, as it states in the 1990 paper, which was published in Nature. "It's not acceptable ... [it's] not best practice," Jones said.

    He acknowledged that the stations "probably did move" but insisted he did not know this when he wrote the 1990 paper.

    "I thought it was the right way to get the data. I was specifically trying to get more rural station data that wasn't routinely available in real time from [meteorological] services."

    He said he would consider submitting a correction to the journal. "I will give that some thought. It's worthy of consideration."

    But he said that "the science still holds up". A subsequent study confirmed the original conclusion - that the global warming trend was not significantly affected by urbanisation - and showed that the precise location of the weather stations was not important.

    Jones said critics were "trying to pick out minor things in the data and blow them out of all proportion".

    He said: "I don't think we should be taking much notice of what's on blogs because they seem to be hijacking the peer-review process."

    Now back your claim that increased sun activity caused this global warming, I'm still waiting for your evidence to back it up.

    Two different interviews your is an interview with the science journal Nature,


    Mine was an interview with the BBC.

    For you to say that is not what he said is a deception on your part.

    I call BS! You linked to a right wing blog with an admitted bias:

    "The Daily Express has led the way in exposing flaws in the arguments supporting global warming."

    It was not an interview. It was a misrepresentation of the actual interview I linked. Its the kind of blog Jones said to avoid in the interview I linked:

    "I don't think we should be taking much notice of what's on blogs because they seem to be hijacking the peer-review process."


    No where in your biased article does it mention it was an interview. If I am wrong, quote where it says that it is!

    And I'm still waiting for you to back up your claim that increased solar activity is causing global warming!
