    I've asked this before, and no one really answered. But I would still love to know what evidence it would take to disprove global warming.

    Because apparently it's warming whether:

    the tempature goes up or down
    it snows alot or a little
    there are lots of hurricanes or few
    whether there is lots of ice or little.

    the list goes on. What would disprove global warming?

    Were the temperature to show a steady decline for at least a decade.

    Were the glaciers and arctic ice to gain mass for at least a decade, instead of losing it at an accelerating rate.

    But what we are seeing is a steady increase in temperatures. And a steady decrease in the ice. And, right now, the warmest winter on record.

    It doesn't need to be disproved. It hasn't met the requirements of being a valid theory. When or if that happens, then falsification would be required (even though falsification has happened several times over by scientists with some integrity left).

    The planet is always in a state of either warming or cooling over long arcs of time. The recent hysteria is over the role of humans and the effects of CO2. It's up to those who think that AGW exists to prove it.

    Those of us who think it's bunk should not have to prove a negative.

    Really?

    In other words, you are denying the work of Tyndal, Arnnhenius, Callender, et al?

    And what the hell would you know of scientific integrity? You will not even post peer reviewed science to back your denial of reality.

    The problem for these guys is irrelevant. If it were to get cold for a while, they would say we are going through a pollution winter. And they don't really want a solution. They want the problem, so they can peddle the same tired cure.

    And they have the cure. It is the same cure for whatever ails the universe. Government control over people, and Grifters control over the government.

    Not that you would know reality if it were pissing on your face. And no, Chris doesn't count.
