    I r haz proofz too. Anyone can claim anything, but the proof correlates with the solar cycle and not carbon emissions. Graph wars are cool Just tryin' to add some humor.

    You are right it that things aren't linear, but many of the climate scientists predicted warming doom and gloom talking like the earth will burn soon. When things started cooling they blamed that on AGW as well. I don't understand all science 100%, but it seems as if they tried to scare us into buying their theory of AGW and when the cooling started they blamed it on emissions as well. Most facts point to the solar cycle being the climate driver, other planets like Mars have risen in temperature similar to earth. Science now also predicts a small 20-30 year mini ice age. To me I see many special interests and much to gain by certain individuals and industries by having AGW be true.

    The last decade is the warmest decade in recorded history.

    Global warming has certainly happened in the past, so we can't call it a myth.

    Whether it's happening now, and if so, what the causes are, is still up in the air.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Since you never here the sun mentioned or the axis of the earth or any other natural aspects that could affect climate and the fact of all the fraud and corruption and lies coming out on the data. I would have to believe GW is all made up.

    If it was real would scientist have to lie and manipulate the data?

    If they were attempting to blame humans for it, yes.

    Well, given the latest controversy of "scientists" cooking their books to make their climate data consistent with the liberal nonsense of man-made global warming, it is obvious they are in on the conspiracy. Scientists at fancy research universities and labs receive copious amounts of governmental funding to promulgate global warming hysteria, so of course they have a horse in the race. If global warming is debunked, they lose a significant amount of their funding and, in the worst cases, their jobs.

    Liberals love to sneer at people who do not buy global warming and categorize them as people who are unintelligent or anti-intellectual. Since the leftist hijack of academia, everything liberals believe equate to unquestionable science, irrespective of whether there are gaping holes in their theories or not. In contrast, conservative science is argued to be axiomatically inferior irrespective of how weighty their scientific arguments are.

    Watching liberals trying to brainwash people into believing that yellow is really black is rather humorous to watch. Regardless of however many sneers liberals want to direct at people who refuse to believe leftist idiocy, I know that global warming is a crock. Apparently, so does Al Gore, who despite his endless work reporting the dangers of human activity on the climate, continues to live a life manifestly antithetical to the nonsense that he preaches.

    You obviously don't understand meteorology. When water is warmer, it evaporates faster. When air is warmer, it moves more, and faster. When air moves, and there is lots of evaporation, you get larger and larger storm systems. Higher temperatures (higher being relative, the ocean temperatures have only changed maybe 1 degree celsius) result in more powerful storms, and more of them.

    Sunspot it as at a low which can cause a cooling.

    Where have all the sunspots gone? | Science Buzz

    Occasionally, intense magnetic activity in the Sun creates sunspots, dark regions on the surface of the Sun. Sunspot activity rises and falls roughly every 11 years – the last maximum was in 2001, and activity slowly fell off to zero by 2006.

    And since then…almost nothing. Scientists had expected sunspot activity to start increasing by now, but it hasn’t. No one knows why, or when the cycle will pick up again.

    Why is this important?

    Sunspots, created by intense magnetic activity, are associated with solar flares, enormous streams of high-energy particles sent shooting out into the Solar System. These play havoc with satellites and other electronic communication. So, no sunspots in this case would be a good thing.

    Solar flares also create the beautiful northern and southern lights. In this case, no sunspots is a bad thing.

    Perhaps most important, sunspots seem to be an indicator of solar activity. And low activity can mean lower temperatures here on Earth. The Sun once went 50 years without producing any spots – from 1650 to 1700 – and these years were some of the coldest in recorded history. Today they are known as the little Ice Age.
