Well smarty pants where have the climate changed in the last 100 years? Have the cold north eastern side of the USA become tropical? Has the everglades stop being a swamp? The answer is no. Now, the petrified forest in Arizona, that was a serious climate change...a few millions years ago! The land bridge between Asia and North America that disappeared a few thousand years ago, that was climate change. Now tell me, was Anthropogenic Global Warming the cause of that climate change?

Wow, this is filled with so much denialist whack-a-mole bunk that we're going to need a bigger Internet to fit all the wrong in.

A little patience, please. It takes awhile for dhumb to create unrelated charts to try to fool you. It was too easy to debunk his last foolishness so he has to work a little harder.

So, let's go check that Wikipedia source you and Mother Jones cite:

And let's confirm their claim that only 1 Democrat has been convicted, under Clinton. There we find:



Yep, there it is, only 1 Democrat. But wait a minute, what do we find directly below that?



Why, I count 10 convicted Democrats, just during Clinton's term! How can that be? Mother Jones told us there was only 1 conviction. Oh, I see, it's because you are a moron and posted a chart and story about Executive Branch members who have been convicted while trying to fool us into thinking it was a chart and story about Congressional members who have been convicted. You know, "Put the Con in Congress."

I am kidding though. I know you weren't trying to fool us. You're just not very smart.

The temp difference of .08 degrees only means the earth temperature is more stable than my computer controlled A/C system in my house!!!

Which says much more about your house's computer controlled A/C system than your understanding of AGW.

2017 Among Warmest Years On Record http://n.pr/2FQIEj9

"2017 was among the warmest years on record, according to new data released by NASA and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration.

The planet's global surface temperature last year was second warmest since 1880, NASA says. NOAA calls it the third warmest year on record, due to slight variation in the ways that they analyze temperatures.

"Both analyses show that the five warmest years on record have all taken place since 2010," NASA said in a press release.

The trend is seen most dramatically in the Arctic, NASA says, as sea ice continues to melt.

"Despite colder than average temperatures in any one part of the world, temperatures over the planet as a whole continue the rapid warming trend we've seen over the last 40 years," said Gavin Schmidt, the director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies."

^ NASA is fake news, what do they know about actual scientific research? Going to continue to read the right wing websites to get my science fix going.

Then try this for size:

Current temperature measurements are done by sophisticated remote sensors from hundreds if not thousands of data points.

Temperatures in 1880 were logged from mercury thermometers in a Stevenson screen and accumulated from tens, if not dozens of data points. Vast regions of the world were inaccessible, due to physical and political limitations.

Ocean temperature mapping was rudimentary at best in the 19th and early 20th Century. Position fixing was beyond crude, bathymetry was accurate to tens of feet in depth, deep ocean current mapping was in its infancy.

The point of this is that any comparison of current climatic measurements with those from 1880, are done by extrapolation and WAG assessments. So calm down.

Oh sure, I bet you think Tiger Woods drives the ball further than Francis Ouimet merely because of equipment differences rather than the more plausible Anthropological Golf Distance Change.
