Re: Global warming believers are like a hysteric

Science can tell you that there is a risk of altering temperature by as much as 5 degrees C in the next 100 years.

Science can't tell you the consequences to our civilization of altering the temperature as much as 5 degrees C in a mere 100 [more]

Re: El Nino Tea Leaves

Actually since entering this bit of the thread you've provided nothing but ad-hom yourself. First dissing BenSolar, then jgc123. One is not impressed by your attempt to throw your scientific creds around.

Re: Margin of error?

OK... I think I get it.

What you want to see is discussion of the margin of error of the individual thermometer readings in the temperature record. Most of the temperature record is derived from meteorological stations and observations. [more]

Re: EU Renewables Often Improperly Sited

Germans are doing well at shutting down nuclear plants, burning less coal and building renewables.

Unfortunately, the only way that we are going to get any action to mitigate warming is if the warming is so obvious that even someone like yerself can't possibly miss it.

Goddard gallops off in all directions again

Starting with a global temperature being correlated against a local rainfall phenomenon, and continuing on with looking at data which is not relevant to the issue discussed... Goddard is a master of misdirection.

It is clear that Mr. T is comparing the trend of the last 15 years with the 30 years previous.

Re: Trending

Wrong to think that 15 years defines either the trend OR a change. Yes you are.

He is basically telling you to use a longer time period to think about this. You won't and so you stay focused on the noise.
