    "New data show that the balance between the airborne and the absorbed fraction of carbon dioxide has stayed approximately constant since 1850, despite emissions of carbon dioxide having risen from about 2 billion tons a year in 1850 to 35 billion tons a year now.

    "The strength of the new study, published online in Geophysical Research Letters, is that it rests solely on measurements and statistical data, including historical records extracted from Antarctic ice, and does not rely on computations with complex climate models. "

    emissions from deforestation might have been overestimated by between 18 and 75 per cent. This would agree with results published last week in Nature Geoscience by a team led by Guido van der Werf from VU University Amsterdam. They re-visited deforestation data and concluded that emissions have been overestimated by at least a factor of two.

    The "science" is definitely not "settled"

    There is a lot of investigation to do and the monetary concerns pushing global warming media and industry should be monitored closely.
    This does not jive with this:

    We will see what becomes of this theory once submitted for peer review.

    Its not a question of smog, it is about water rising, the people it will displace, as well as heat and the effect that will have on plants and animals necessary for human survival.

    National Geographic has an excellent presentation of what global warming will entail.

    Since the environment is doing just fine, explain why you're willing to destroy the economy of the United States for the sake of your religion. Other people live here, too.

    No, I've deliberately rejected the failed theory and religion of Anthropogenic Global Warming.

    You've failed to reject your religion.

    Fresh Evidence Global Warming Is Man-Made

    "The new research involved drawing together evidence from more than 100 climate change studies, many of which were conducted since the last major IPCC report in 2007.

    It showed that, on a global scale, predictions made about the effects of greenhouse gas emissions match actual trends seen over the past 50 years.

    Since 1980, average global temperature has increased by about 0.5˚C. Currently, the Earth is getting warmer at the rate of about 0.16˚C per decade.

    The study found natural forces such as volcanic eruptions and cyclical changes in the brightness of the Sun could not explain what was happening to the world's climate, said Dr Stott.

    For example, solar heating would have warmed both upper and lower layers of the atmosphere, the stratosphere and troposphere. However, what was seen was that while the stratosphere had cooled, the troposphere had warmed.

    Asked if the new research would help silence those who question man-made climate change, Dr Stott said: "I just hope people will make up their minds informed by the scientific evidence."

    That does nothing to address the corruption. It also does not address why they refuse to release information under the freedom of information act.

    I haven't been for it since Jones basically said "we were wrong."

    When was that, two weeks ago?

    Oh? When did AGW predict that the first decade of the third millenium would undergo global cooling to the point where the con-men at the IPCC were forced to rename their con "global climate change"?

    Oh.

    That wasn't in the theory.

    Because the theory is still bunk.

    You people really have to stop lying to yourselves in the hopes of convincing the sane people that you're not really one of these

    Seriously.

    The planet is COOLING. "Cooling" is the term used to describe the opposite of "warming". Warming means the planet is getting hotter. So that means "cooling" means the planet is getting less hot. You have to address the reality of global cooling, unless you want to be known as Future Ice Age Deniers.
