Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

325 pages and when the tiredbrain troll was expelled this last time we lost about 200 pages of it denying all research and findings just to keep with the official republinut talking line !Facts are , We have a problem and no amount of ignorant inaction will solve it ! So lets see how many more pages of bullsh^t we can get generated here !

that IS directly from the NASSA website by the way

Q. How accurate are the GISS results (tables, graphs)? A. The GISS results are really estimates based on the available data. Accurate error estimates are hard to obtain. However, it is likely that the largest contribution to the margin of error is given by the temporal and spatial data gaps. That particular margin was estimated as follows: All computations were first made replacing the observed data by complete model data. Then the calculations were repeated after discarding model data where the corresponding observations were missing. Comparisons of the two results were used to obtain an estimate for that margin of error. Assuming that the other inaccuracies might about double that estimate yielded the error bars for global annual means drawn in this graph, i.e., for recent years the error bar for global annual means is about ±0.05°C, for years around 1900 it is about ±0.1°C. The error bars are about twice as big for seasonal means and three times as big for monthly means.

Funny you and Harry run like school girls when the actual data is discussed.

IF you want to talk about facts, lets start with the admitted maring of errpr in NASSA data

The current dominant species has surely fudged the data on climate no doubt

Why do you refuse to address the margin of error in the NASSA data? Sorta blows a hole in your case doesn't it?

"What you or I believe can happen has no bearing on what IS happening.."

True but all you care about is what you believe and nothing about facts.

So is it logical to assume that the current dominant species on the planet has the ability to effect the planet's climate?

I mean, if you are completely ignorant on the possibilities, you can just admit that.

Marilyn vos Savant posted, in her May 3, 2015 national commentary, that there are reasons other than ice cap melt for which to attribute the cause of rising sea levels. She suggests that our pulling up of groundwater, with subsequent losses back into the oceans (evaporation and runoff) accounts for 42% of the rise in sea level. The warming of ocean water (causing it to expand) is responsible for nearly an additional 50% of the oceans rise, she surmises.

I would think that are declining water tables would be as alarming as the threat of global warming to nation-states. Nations that have the material wherewithal to do so should be considering the construction of solar powered desalinization plants and the cessation of funding for programs that support the runaway human population growth around the planet.

I KNOW! I KNOW! The Democrats would have a tough time supporting that last one.

Nothing a value to add but thanks for trying, have a nice weekend

Head liar and denier ! No matter what proof is shown you'll get the same over and over because that's the party line !

Let me help you, from NASSA website

Should read what is the admitted.......

What you or I believe can happen has no bearing on what IS happening, So stick to the facts, Mehta is the admitted margin of error in NASSA data?

Like what about data accuracy and error bars

Thank you for agreeing with us that the oceans absorb heat.

Now then, do you believe that the dominant species of our world has the ability to effect climate?
