For how much longer do you believe Glowbull warming can continue before it runs out of steam?

Malaria isn't a tropical disease. Historically it's been as far north a Minneapolis and Siberia.

So far in your tirade I don't see any reason why I should turn my thermostat down take the bus and eat tofu.

Oh yes, you liberals have to shout drought drought drought drought! After all ala Dr. Stephen Schneider drought is a scary scenario isn't it.

Us so maybe we are going to have an ice age? I thought we going to have "Global Warming" You really should make up your mind.
I knew that would be be your answer. Whenever someone suggests reality, you start whining "Doom and gloom! Doom and Gloom!" It's just that I'm Joe Friday to your Pollyanna.

"Malaria isn't a tropical disease" doesn't address the meat of my statement, merely avoids it and attempts to distract. My technical mistake was based on the fact that 90% of malaria deaths are in sub-Saharan Africa, so one could say that the virus prefers the tropics. The mosquitoes that spread these tropical diseases are more likely to find their way to Minnesota in a warmer world, just as West Nile virus has recently come to Mississippi.

It was "NOT!" to the "maybe" part. Global warming will definitely postpone the next ice age.

I don't eat tofu and I don't see what that has to do with climate change.

The challenge is not about money, it's about science.

I don't want your money. I want you to put your science where your mouth is. Show me the science that supports a 4.5*C increase in temps by the year 2100. You've got the name of the person who said it, now show me the work she did that demonstrates the evidence that supports it.

I suppose you know the difference between 5ºC and 5ºF?
5ºC = 9ºF.

That'll be a 'novel' experience.

I'm getting the feeling I've heard these predictions before.

Nuclear war becomes increasingly unlikely as the decades pass.

We are very lucky to live in a world where we can retire in style. I only hope that it continues for those who follow. Carbon taxes, geo-engineering and all the rest of the left-wing global warming bullshit doesn't fit very well in that outlook.

Some Lovelock quotes:
“The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books – mine included – because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened,”
"I was 'alarmist' about climate change & so was Gore!'The problem is we don't know what the climate is doing."

Who? About 95% of the world's climate scientists.

But not conservatives since they don't believe in science.

Thanks for posting this link.
The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books – mine included – because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened,” Lovelock said.
“The climate is doing its usual tricks. There’s nothing much really happening yet. We were supposed to be halfway toward a frying world now,” he said.
“The world has not warmed up very much since the millennium. Twelve years is a reasonable time… it (the temperature) has stayed almost constant, whereas it should have been rising -- carbon dioxide is rising, no question about that,” he added.
He pointed to Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” and Tim Flannery’s “The Weather Makers” as other examples of “alarmist” forecasts of the future...

'I made a mistake'
As “an independent and a loner,” he said he did not mind saying “All right, I made a mistake.” He claimed a university or government scientist might fear an admission of a mistake would lead to the loss of funding.
