    Re: Is Global Warming a myth?

    Is the menial global temperature warming? Damn straight it is. Facts is facts. Is this not a natural cycle of nature? Who can say? We've only been keeping records for so long. Is it man made? I think the jury's still out on that one but I prefer to caution on the side of error and besides, it doesn't hurt to try to clean the planet up if we can.

    But, with the erratic and unusual weather patterns we're having lately, snowing in TX and FL, east coast getting pounded, etc., I can see how the term, "global warming" might confuse the simpleton.

    But, all indicators prove beyond a shadow of a doubt, the earth is, in fact, warming. Even though it might be hard to convince a citizen in Florida with snow in his yard, of that. If one looks beyond the boundries of their county line, and look at the world as a whole, the globe is definitely going through a warming trend.

    Case closed.

    No, I don't think you see. What they are telling you is that despite the sun being at a solar minimum, we still had the warmest decade in history.

    Meanwhile, how about if you start explaining why the last decade, which was cooler than the one preceding it, is called "warmest ever"?
    It wasn't cooler than the one before. The study that makes that claim did not use annual data from 2009. That is why it drew the wrong conclusion.

    The study by WMO and NOAA used data for 2009 to compare with the historical records and determined 2000-2009 is the warmest decade.

    Common English usage reserves the "-est" ending for the extreme, so if one decade is warmer than the subsequent decade, it's grammatically incorrect to call the latter decade the "warmest".
    Correct, that is why it is correct usage to say this decade (2000 - 2009) was the warmest as verified by the most up to date study by WMO and NOAA.

    Since we don't have the warmest decade in history...well, we do, but only if you consider that last decade is still in our possession somehow, and only if you consider history to have begun after the Medieval Warm Period, which would be weird, since if history began at the end of the Medieval Warm Period, what was it in the middle of? But if you make all those unacceptable assumptions, and then cook the books and don't allow peer review of your data, you might be able to convince yourself that the current decade is warmer than the last.

    If people try really really hard they can convince themselves that the Holy Ghost and the Father and The Son are at the same time completely independent beings and one being.

    People with religious faith can do what you do.

    Honest scientists and engineers cannot.

    But since it was cooler than the one before....(Hint: I've lived through the time periods under discussion.)...there's clearly something wrong with claims that say it wasn't.

    Since all the other predictions of AGW have also failed, the nails on the AGW coffin are being hammered in now. But just as Zeus had followers after the infection of Europe by Christianity, I'm sure AGW will have it's touts and pimps for decades to come.

    Okay, the Earth is warming. So what? You think this is the first time it's happened?

    Its the first time that man has been a factor in the warming.

    It is the first time people falsely claim it is caused by man.

    Thanks for the opinion! I've still got to go with the mainstream science consensus.

    OK you go with the conspiracy theory and I'll go with mainstream science.
