  • Here's a really cool little page that collects and presents data on CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions by country/region, etc.

      What a bad call.

      Link to the original, if anyone's interested.
      good luck with that!
      My experience is that a believer in caloric theory of heat transfer isn't going to change. It sorta works on a day to day level... a hot pot gradually loses leat- and you can't see the pot molecules, so they don't count....

          Not really.

          Why do you think I only included that snippet which presents a cute take on where climate was in the past?

          FWIW, I will on occasion use a variety of sources to give some perspective (if not show irony). Following is one which lies a bit to one side of objective, even though it presents as such, and also is illustrative of the Orwellian/"1984"~Double-Speak common to the 'Al Gore-bot' ACC/AGW true-believer fanatics.

          For example, this one comes close to objective and has some interesting content, even though it mostly leans one way;

            To be expected from a biased and non-object site claiming to be a "fact-check" one.

            The video I linked to in my post provides a good number of examples of how data exclusion and cherry pick can produce graphs and implications that fit an agenda, but conflict with the full range of data/information available.

            Classic propaganda technique to attack source rather than content.

            BTW, here's some alternate quackery;

                That seems a tangent~divergence on your part.

                  So decades ago at a top secret meeting of scientists (probably in a volcano) it was decided to create &global warming&; as a scam to bilk governments out of trillions of dollars and completely undermine the way modern society functions. And all ;climate&; scientists swore a blood oath to follow this on the bones of Anders Celsius.
                  This grand plot was solely to safe guard their extremely high paying, cushy and highly sought after jobs.Oh and to avoid having to find work as baristas. Amazing that other scientists didn;t figure this out too

                  I see the next Dan Brown epic writing itself.



                  good post
                  the good news is that it is getting better. correspondents who had previously thrived on the caloric theory seem to be incorporating parts of the kinetic theory of gases into their , uhh, debates.
                  the hypothesis that I feel explains greenhouse warming is still molecular resonance, which is quantum mechanics. Getting folks to bridge the final leap, is meetin resistance.

                            I don't know about the Antarctic, but there were similar claims about Greenland. The claim was that the ice in central Greenland was increasing. It was. The reason was that the melting of ice near the coasts of Greenland had increased the moisture in the air, and thereby increased snowfall in central Greenland. Overall, the mass of ice in Greenland was declining.

                            A good example of the science denial tactic of cherry picking.
