On what basis do you conclude that this [AWG] is "the big lie"? My guess is your conclusion is largely based on your political point of view, and has nothing to do with any science that you understand.

I think it is worth pointing out that this above is no mere assertion. It is an observation that is empirical and proven to a large extent due to their admitted and demonstrable poor grasp of the science. Unfortunately, this theory could be explored further and could even be weakened if the deniers would engage in an exploration of their decision making processes but they refuse to do so, from which we can reasonably infer a further weakening of their position due to the willful obstructive nature of their behavior.

Assertion and obstruction seems to be their strengths. It sure as hell isn't science anyway. Perhaps their assertion has taken a little hit recently, which would explain the obstructive silence.

JD is Tennessee, dude. Be prepared you will always be a left wing California fag to those good ole boys.

Kentucky is not in the south, so don't let em say otherwise. Way more like Ohio than those Tennessee wankers.

First Chinese Container Ship is using the Northern Passage

The shorter trip will mean lower fuel costs (and, ironically, fewer greenhouse gas emissions) for the freighter. Taking this route is expected to save 12 to 15 days of travel

Well doc,, the exact quote of big Als was: We are having MORE storms and MORE LARGER STORMS yadda yadday yiddi..

Perhaps in Big Als mind its storming but alas NOWHERE else..

Here is an interesting natural phenomenon that could be an influence in oceanic oscillations and might be a mechanism for the transport of Trenberth's missing heat to the deep. Of course it could also be interpreted as a previously under appreciated negative feedback that helps keep atmospheric and SS temps moderate in the face of rapid intense forcings. I'm surprised some of you guys aren't all over this.

OK Ed. So i also assume that climate change has an impact on the lack of extreme weather events of 2013, excepting of course the extreme cold spells most pronounced by the historically late northern mid to high lattitudes late spring?

Sandy's area of ocean with twelve-foot seas peaked at 1.4 million square miles--nearly one-half the area of the contiguous United States, or 1% of Earth's total ocean area. Most incredibly, ten hours before landfall (9:30 am EDT October 30), the total energy of Sandy's winds of tropical storm-force and higher peaked at 329 terajoules--the highest value for any Atlantic hurricane since at least 1969. This is 2.7 times higher than Katrina's peak energy, and is equivalent to five Hiroshima-sized atomic bombs. At landfall, Sandy's tropical storm-force winds spanned 943 miles of the the U.S. coast. No hurricane on record has been wider; the previous record holder was Hurricane Igor of 2010, which was 863 miles in diameter. Sandy's huge size prompted high wind warnings to be posted from Chicago to Eastern Maine, and from Michigan's Upper Peninsula to Florida's Lake Okeechobee--an area home to 120 million people. Sandy's winds simultaneously caused damage to buildings on the shores of Lake Michigan at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, and toppled power lines in Nova Scotia, Canada--locations 1200 miles apart!

Largest Atlantic tropical cyclones for area covered by tropical storm-force winds:

Olga, 2001: 780,000 square miles
Sandy, 2012: 560,000 square miles
Lili, 1996: 550,000 square miles
Igor, 2010: 550,000 square miles
Karl, 2004: 430,000 square miles

Yeah, totally wee. Miniscule. Al Gore, what a maroon.

Riley, it is you that is the true moron. If you had an uncorrupted neuron left between your rotting zombie ears you would realize that extreme weather events are much more a function of increased population and valued real estate in harms way now than in the past. What is the sound of a tree falling in the forest, if no being is there to hear it.

What sound does a maroon make if there isn't another retarded monkey around to gobble his chromosome-deficient spunk?

Yeah, at least you have your monkey to hear your joy gurgles.

On a related note: Did you know that the sound of sneezes are socially influenced? Deaf people don't voice their sneezes!!!

It's a social convention? Maybe a survival code that lets us know, hey, that guy might be sick or there's a bad patch of briar so we can stay away from a distance? Something like idiots braying their ignorance at full blast as we've seen the Tres Amigos do here?

Just some ruminations. Jizz for thought.

A lot of people here are really book smart and completely unintelligent and stupid.

We know who they are.

And not who you think ......
