hang on everyone. I have some bad news. we have been had. This person who claims to be one "Rick Sumner" of Wassillastan Alaska is in in fact none other than Lord Christopher Monkton, aka Sasha Baron Cohen. This is the proof. I recognized his manner of speech, intonation and general lack of credibility immediately:

Bruce- I wish my old friend Daryl aka Doug Fir was still with us. I'd ask him to take you logging, to see the forest through the trees. Now there was a man who could see the hilarity of this all.

Norton spare us the drama and just answer the questionaire.

And any of the rest of you that can't appreciate my presence here; just thank Dr. F who policed me to the epicenter of my pet peeve-junk science and agenda driven propoganda.

Ed ED ED,You know i'm slow in my unscientific studies, furthermore as previously stated, i will check in over a period of years as conditions of the state of CAGW collapse warrants. Will look up some of the papers you cited soon. As for graphs, in the end the only ones that present hard reality are those charting the past to the current based on unambiguous, uncontested observation. The line of medial rise plateaued some 15 years ago and may well be trending down, possibly steeply soon.After several more years, if that trend line continues, i would be happy to graph it.

In the mean time, this false idea of a unanimous consensus is what i battle.Thanks for putting up with me.

you're an old buddy of daryl's? Well if that is true you would know as well as anyone Daryl would be saying "Rick - you 're a damn light weight! now shut up and make yourself useful - put on that french maid outfit and go get us some beer!"

it got colder than normal for a week in January where i live

therefore the global warming thing is a lie that the scientific community made up in order to justify getting more and more research money so their personal incomes would go up


I don't make money so easily just by lying and manipulating data, and so I have a right to be contentious and jealous of the soft jobs and easy money the warming alarmists enjoy

do i got it right yet?

Yeah Bruce, had many a drunken gut wrenching laugh fests with old Daryl. I climbed and worked with him (occaisionally-the work part) in ca. 79-80 before he was deported for, among other things, logging a bit in Yo.

And dont forget the aliens DMT

Norton- where the hell have you been the last decade-are you sequestered in your greenhouse,get outside man and smell the wild roses.

Well Rick you've managed to regain some credibility in the boozing and Dennis the Menace department but what that has to do with climate science I'll never know. Come to think of it, maybe it does provide a little insight into where you're coming from and no it dosn't exactly help your position here!

Well Bruce, i had hoped to establish my credentials as a man who enjoys a good laugh. Anyway, this whole catastrophist thing is a joke, isn't it? Why else would i be laughing my ass off.

if only there was some agent in control of the seas who could act in good faith for the interest of all mankind

stop the ill gotten resources from reaching despicable buyers
stop the producers incentives
stop the slave shipping of human cattle around the globe to service these filths every market whim


so much good in toward of peace justice and the 'american way!' could be accomplished

if only someone could police the seas...

For the reality-based community, some lively writing by Phil Plait (the Bad Astronomer) on the latest Wall Street Journal pseudo-science:

No Need to Worry About Global Warming, Folks: More Carbon Dioxide Will Be Awesome

I see a lot of pretty amazingly bad global warming denial online. It ranges from mildly cherry-picked data to such baldly transparent garbage that you have to wonder if the person who wrote it can possibly, actually believe what they are saying is true.

After reading dozens, hundreds, of such mind-numbing articles, I think we’ve found a winner. One that is so sweepingly wrong and based on such a ridiculous premise that it’s weapons-grade denial. Unsurprisingly, it was published in the Wall Street Journal, which has a lengthy history of printing reality-free OpEds about climate change. Perhaps surprisingly, it was penned by two actual scientists, William Happer and Harrison Schmitt. I’ll have more about them later.

And in case you are still confused as to how supposedly serious readers of a serious news journal could ever consider themselves seriously, here's how:

Anyway, this whole catastrophist thing is a joke, isn't it? Why else would i be laughing my ass off.

you are easily amused i guess

They ignore evidence, use cherry-picked data, pollute the discussion, and distract from the real problem.

They are simply, plainly—and dangerously—wrong.

Yesterday:

Climate Milestone: Earth’s CO2 Level Passes 400 ppm
Greenhouse gas highest since the Pliocene, when sea levels were higher and the Earth was warmer


An instrument near the summit of Mauna Loa in Hawaii recorded a long-awaited climate milestone today: the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere there has exceeded 400 parts per million (ppm) for the first time in 55 years of measurement—and probably more than 3 million years of Earth history.

The last time the concentration of Earth's main greenhouse gas reached this mark, horses and camels lived in the high Arctic. Seas were at least 30 feet higher—at a level that today would inundate major cities around the world.

The planet was about 2 to 3 degrees Celsius (3.6 to 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer. But the Earth then was in the final stage of a prolonged greenhouse epoch, and CO2 concentrations were on their way down. This time, 400 ppm is a milepost on a far more rapid uphill climb toward an uncertain climate future.

Anecdotal evidence its still chilly in Greenland count for anything?

RIP

Explorer Philip Goodeve-Docker freezes to death on second day
of trek across Greenland.

Suspect they did not build a strong enough snow block wall
to protect the tent at camp, gale force winds shredded it and poor Phil could not do any emergency action to maintain his body temps.

edit: the piece was obviously written by some media cubical
type with little understanding.
