    I misread a sentence, yet still understood what it meant. You're really going to beat me over the head with that on huh?
  2. That is not a personal attack. So far dan_pdx's...

    That is not a personal attack. So far dan_pdx's contribution to the thread has been to post an alarmist cartoon graph as proof of AGW, and to rely on midwest farmers and western skiers as proof of...
  3. No. No. The Shakun paper is the...

    No.



    No.



    The Shakun paper is the first research I have ever seen suggesting CO2 leading. Is there more?
  4. Seems to me its mostly the activists and...

    Seems to me its mostly the activists and politicians doing the advising.
  5. I guess the difference is that is coming from an...

    I guess the difference is that is coming from an organization that is supposed to have scientific integrity, and I'm just a jack off climate change denier sitting in mom's basement arguing with...
  6. Sometimes? It pretty much always lags behind...

    Sometimes? It pretty much always lags behind temperature in the historical records. You say there is plenty of evidence that CO2 drove temperature in the historical record. That is news to me. I...
  7. What a beautiful mix of word salad,...

    What a beautiful mix of word salad, misrepresentations, and straight up lies. The NCA makes the IPCC look like a denier group.
  8. The thing you are missing from those graphs is...

    The thing you are missing from those graphs is that historically CO2 levels have always lagged temperature by 800-1,000 years. When you see graphs with hundred thousand year+ timescales it appears...
  9. The farmers would be wrong then. I'm not...

    The farmers would be wrong then.

    I'm not really buying the analogy. In any case, I bring up the lack of a consensus on how dangerous AGW is for society, because everyone has been brainwashed...
  10. Okay, the reviewers appear to be pushing an...

    Okay, the reviewers appear to be pushing an agenda then. They note the limitations of the data and question of how well they can compare global temperatures across this time period, yet they still...
  11. If you want to say that I'm saying the data is...

    If you want to say that I'm saying the data is invalid, then fine, I certainly am to a degree. I was coming from a more nuanced position since you seemed to be suggesting that I thought that the...
  12. My mistake, the quote is from the reviewers,...

    My mistake, the quote is from the reviewers, which doesn't make much of a difference anyway.

    I guess I should be clear in saying that I am not invalidating the research because of the proxy...
  13. I'm starting to think that you are missing the...

    I'm starting to think that you are missing the fact that we are talking about yearly warming rates and global synchronous warming. I'm not saying that proxy data is useless, and no conclusions can...
  14. Once again, I am not citing the recent trends in...

    Once again, I am not citing the recent trends in Greenland's glaciers and SMB to claim climate change doesn't happen!!

    I am citing them to show the propaganda in WMD's hysterical Greenland article.
  15. MV and I are arguing about is whether the recent...

    MV and I are arguing about is whether the recent warming rate is unprecedented for the past 2,000 years, and whether this is the only time of the past 2,000 years where temperatures are warming...
  16. When I see this quote from their paper,...

    When I see this quote from their paper, "Unfortunately, limitations inherent in the proxies themselves probably still hamper our ability to compare warm or cool intervals with each other...
  17. All I am saying is that looking at proxy records...

    All I am saying is that looking at proxy records combined with recent instrumental records to compare recent and past warming rates and spatial warming has data issues. Any conclusions based on this...
  18. You seem to think that I'm implying that...

    You seem to think that I'm implying that Greenland hasn't been losing ice in recent decades. I'm not. I only posted about this in response to WMD's article about Al Roker just getting back from...
  19. If collusion isn't an actual offense, then what...

    If collusion isn't an actual offense, then what was the point of investigating Trump for colluding with Russia?
  20. I think you understand what I'm saying, but none...

    I think you understand what I'm saying, but none of your responses relate to the point I'm trying to make, so I'm not sure if you do understand. To be clear, I am saying that it is a stretch to be...
  21. That has nothing to do with our current argument....

    That has nothing to do with our current argument. I'm claiming that I don't think that it's a coincidence that the highest (mostly natural) warming rate by far of the past 2,000 years shows up as...
  22. I feel the same way. But I thought there was...

    I feel the same way.

    But I thought there was no evidence of collusion with Russia? At least, thats what Jimmy Dore and Aaron Mate told me.

    Instrumental record sure, I don't take issue with that.



    No shit, but the article said the glaciers are "vanishing at an astonishing rate." They aren't.



    Never said melting is over. ...
  25. 1050-1100 is already going into a cooling trend...

    1050-1100 is already going into a cooling trend before any volcanic forcing, same for 1400-1450.



    You said it wasn't a coincidence that the early 20th century warming shows such a significant...
  26. When I hear this quote, "And they’re not just...

    When I hear this quote, "And they’re not just melting—they’re vanishing at an astonishing rate," I don't expect to find any glaciers growing. Nor do I expect to find that the Greenland ice sheet...
  27. So you attribute the Little Ice Age to volcanic...

    So you attribute the Little Ice Age to volcanic activity, and the early 1900's warming to the lack of volcanic activity? Then what do you make of the period from 1050-1100? There was a similar lack...
  28. Agree, just pointing out that another one of...

    Agree, just pointing out that another one of WMD's links is not reliable.
  29. This is the point I'm making. There is no...

    This is the point I'm making. There is no 'settled science' on how all these positive and negative feedbacks will interact.

    Your Neukom paper says as much itself: "Unfortunately, limitations inherent in the proxies themselves probably still hamper our ability to compare warm or cool intervals with each other throughout...

    Not quite. The largest glacier in Greenland has been gaining mass the past 3 years: https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/images/145185/major-greenland-glacier-is-growing

  33. I don't think the two of us are going to make any...

    I don't think the two of us are going to make any progress in this discussion. You have limited evidence for these claims, and zero evidence for these claims if you look solely at proxy records. ...

    Your hurricane reference confirms that you have no idea what you are talking about.
  35. Global warming hasn't caused an increase in...

    Global warming hasn't caused an increase in floods, so I'm not too worried about that.

    The point is we have no consensus whatsoever on how dangerous AGW is for society.
  36. What's your point? It's pretty promising...

    What's your point?



    It's pretty promising if the climate sensitivity is closer to 1'C. If that is the case, there isn't much more warming that can be caused by CO2 alone. You would think...
  37. It matters because everyone proclaims there is a...

    It matters because everyone proclaims there is a 97% percent consensus that humans are causing climate change and its dangerous. Therefore, I am a moron for questioning the consensus. The only...

    Like I said, if you guys don't post stupid BS I will not post. It appears that is very difficult for you guys.
  39. Change of what?

    Change of what?
  40. Why are we still doing this? This might be the...

    Why are we still doing this?

    This might be the stupidest study I have ever seen. They take the discredited Cook study, and compare its results to the results of plate tectonics studies and find a...
  41. Fixed you post. I hate to start this up again,...

    Fixed you post.

    I hate to start this up again, but please find me one thing that is unusual about our current climate in the context of the last 2,000 years.
  42. So the point was to post an article that supports...

    So the point was to post an article that supports my position written by someone who supports fossil fuels? Makes sense.

    The funny thing is that you thought the Houston University Energy Fellows...
  43. I'll stop. I had no intention of ever getting...

    I'll stop. I had no intention of ever getting this involved in the thread.

    Just don't post stupid false propaganda shit, or I might feel the need to post about it.
  44. What exactly is the point you are trying to make?...

    What exactly is the point you are trying to make?

    WMD is the one blathering on about the 97% consensus. I'm telling him it doesn't exist.
  45. I never said you said 97% of scientists. This...

    I never said you said 97% of scientists.

    This is the slogan you hear everywhere: "97% of scientists agree that climate change is real, man made, and dangerous." The only point I have been trying...
  46. I'm all for less pollution, but it's not as...

    I'm all for less pollution, but it's not as simple as you make it sound. Significantly increasing the price of energy will have a profound impact on society. Proponents of 100% non carbon renewable...
  47. So why do you keep championing the Cook study...

    So why do you keep championing the Cook study from 2013, which doesn't claim that 97% of climate scientists agree that humans are causing global warming, but that 97% of scientists agree that humans...
  48. What post are you referencing from earlier? ...

    What post are you referencing from earlier?

    The land degradation stats have virtually nothing to do with global warming. It is largely the result of agricultural practices:...
  49. Wow, you posted something that supports my...

    Wow, you posted something that supports my position. From the Forbes article, we can say something like 80-90% of scientists agree that humans are causing global warming. Just about everyone on...
  50. I guess I should have known I would get accused...

    I guess I should have known I would get accused of cherry picking. You know the phrase, "97% of scientists agree global warming is real and man made?" Notice how they say 'scientists,' not 'climate...
