    At the present 395 ppm of CO2, what are we already committed to in terms of ice melt, disregarding feedback effects? According to the paleo-record, an increase of about 25 meters in sea level.

    Rocks, can you name anything that is going on in the global climate that is outside the boundries of natural variability? Can you name anything that is even approaching the boundries of natural variability?

    I didn't think so. Even the blatant data tampering going on with the temeprature record isn't moving the numbers anywhere close to being outside of natural variability.

    You have been hoaxed rocks and every time I see you trying to justify your faith, I don't know whether to feel sorry for you or laugh in your ignorant face.

    By the way rocks, sea level is not rising anywhere near the compuer model predictions and has actually decreased. Wonder why?

    Ah, no climate change yet but....gasp....potential rapid climate change. The freaking liberals can't enjoy a mild winter without trying to extort money because of it.

    Well, you know that there is no means to earn money for the cause within liberalism so extortion is all they have.

    The earth is incredibly resilient. It will survive Humans. And thanks to the Conservative denial..it may not have to wait all that long.

    I was at the beach not too long ago. The sea level looked about the same as I last remembered it.

    We're canceling flights to destinations in Mexico because of the high altitude ash that makes it extremely dangerous to fly through.......... wonder what kind of effect that has on the climate?

    Popocatepetl volcano near Mexico City had one of its largest eruptions this year yesterday 16 April.

    What on earth are you talking about?

    The collapse of glaciers is far beyond any known natural variation.

    The collapse of arctic and antarctic ice is far beyond any known variation.

    It always amazes me how people who talking about laughing at ignorance represent a position which flies in the face of all scientific study.
