    No one disputes that a Greenhouse effect occurs. What is disputed is that man caused the 1/3 of a degree raise in temperature from 1980 to 1998 and that somehow, even though no raise has occurred since we are in a situation where the Greenhouse effect will occur.

    The pet theory that CO2 caused it doesn't pan out because from 1998 to 2012 it has CONTINUED to rise and no heat increase has occurred. Further historical records indicate CO2 FOLLOWS rising temps NOT causes them. And of course there is that pesky scientific fact that as CO2 rises its effects on the heating of the earth goes DOWN.

    You're wrong and quite mistaken about everything you just said. You've swallowed a lot of lies and propaganda coming from the fossil fuel industry. Your denial of reality does not actually effect reality.

    NOAA: Past Decade Warmest on Record According to Scientists in 48 Countries
    Earth has been growing warmer for more than fifty years

    July 28, 2010
    (excerpts)

    The 2009 State of the Climate report released today draws on data for 10 key climate indicators that all point to the same finding: the scientific evidence that our world is warming is unmistakable. More than 300 scientists from 160 research groups in 48 countries contributed to the report, which confirms that the past decade was the warmest on record and that the Earth has been growing warmer over the last 50 years. Based on comprehensive data from multiple sources, the report defines 10 measurable planet-wide features used to gauge global temperature changes. The relative movement of each of these indicators proves consistent with a warming world. Seven indicators are rising: air temperature over land, sea-surface temperature, air temperature over oceans, sea level, ocean heat, humidity and tropospheric temperature in the “active-weather” layer of the atmosphere closest to the Earth’s surface. Three indicators are declining: Arctic sea ice, glaciers and spring snow cover in the Northern hemisphere.

    “For the first time, and in a single compelling comparison, the analysis brings together multiple observational records from the top of the atmosphere to the depths of the ocean,” said Jane Lubchenco, Ph.D., under secretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA administrator. “The records come from many institutions worldwide. They use data collected from diverse sources, including satellites, weather balloons, weather stations, ships, buoys and field surveys. These independently produced lines of evidence all point to the same conclusion: our planet is warming.” “The temperature increase of one degree Fahrenheit over the past 50 years may seem small, but it has already altered our planet,” said Deke Arndt, co-editor of the report and chief of the Climate Monitoring Branch of NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center. “Glaciers and sea ice are melting, heavy rainfall is intensifying and heat waves are more common. And, as the new report tells us, there is now evidence that over 90 percent of warming over the past 50 years has gone into our ocean.”


    Measurements show Earth heating up, think tanks & newspapers disagree

    Is global warming still happening?

    CO2 lags temperature - what does it mean?

    Denier Myth - Increasing CO2 has little to no effect

    Ah, but the idiots will simply put their fingers in their ears. Reality is foriegn to them, all that matters it the 'way things oughter be', and the maloderious mouthings of an obese junkie.

    Morons can not be taught facts. No significant warming since 1998 is a FACT. Deny it all you want, you are stupid but you are entitled to your ignorant uninformed opinion.
