Hello everyone I have just unearthed a 40 thousand year old mammoth in a GL melt zone. We think it is fit for human consumption and are hoping everyone in the Aspen area can join us for a huge BBQ this saturday, BWO salads and drinks.

Has anyone found an experiment that supports climate change mitigation?

If so, would you please cite?

Al Gore to do 'dirty weather report'
By Ben Geman - 09/23/12 03:35 PM ET

Al Gore hopes to show links between climate change and the effects of extreme weather worldwide with an online and social media-fueled event built around the idea of “dirty weather.”

Gore’s advocacy group, the Climate Reality Project, announced Sunday that its second multimedia “24 Hours of Reality” event will occur Nov. 14-15 and bear the title “The Dirty Weather Report.”...

Climate experts say that while individual weather events can’t be laid at the feet of climate change, more frequent and intense drought, violent storms and extreme heat waves are expected in a warming world.

&#8232;&#8232;And some scientists are now ditching the caveat about individual weather events....

Christy's lies:
One way to measure trends in extreme weather is to compare the number of state record high and low temperatures by decade. Many more state high temperature records were set in the 1930s than in recent decades. Even more surprising,“since 1960, there have been more all-time cold records set than hot records in each decade.”
1) He's talking about the USA, not the world:
Well, a really good way to look at global warming is to look at what it has done to warm temperature records. And if you didn't have a warming Earth, then you would have the same number of new cold records as you would warm records in any given year on average. Well, what we've been seeing for quite some time now is more and more hot records relative to cold records. And the last two years have really been screaming in terms of how many more hot records we've had than cold records.

2) Not even true in the US any more:
The June to July heat wave finally began to ebb on Saturday, but not before breaking thousands of warm temperature records across the country. In many cases, records that had stood since the Dust Bowl era of the 1930s have been equaled or exceeded, and this event is likely to go down in history as one of America's worst early summer heat waves.

Are you expecting the dirtling to spew more hot air? The dirtling is famous for useless babble tainted with hate covered with spam cut and paste. The hot air thing is a secondary talent the dirtling spews.

Christy lies is correct. False make believe research is all Christy has.Whether just here in the USA or the world, facts are false. Put this one on a list to further disregard as genious.

You're most welcome.

Can you describe your understanding of the scientific method? What is the most compelling test you've found for man made global climate change?

WE MUST ACT FAST ON WARMING!

Latest about Arctic sea ice melt 'and recovery':

Barely ABOVE 4 million km2, Arctic sea ice extent is still BELOW any recorded level in any previous year for ~6 weeks, presently at 4,166,563 km2 (October 2, 2012), fractionally gaining ~25,000 km2(a bit more than West Virginia area) of sea ice the previous day, despite the sun, unseen, from the North Pole for 10+ days, & temperatures above the 80th parallel, a bit above -13 degC, fractionally above normal, although past weeks of Arctic temperatures have been averaging 7degC high.

Much warmth built up in Arctic waters these past months is resisting its conversion back to sea ice, especially southern Arctic waters which have seen much more solar energy absorbed than northern Arctic clear waters. Only along the Greenland east coast is sea ice extending greatly south. All other regions, including the Northwest Passage, Northeast Passage & Arctic waters, south of the Arctic Ice Pack, resist conversion back to Arctic sea ice.

IN ADDITION, for months, any downwellings in the Arctic waters that have been ice-free, have been conducting much captured solar energy radiating on those clear waters, to the depths of the continental shelves & Arctic Ocean.

This same Arctic Ocean warmth is & will continue to keep Arctic sea ice thinner through the coming winter & even spring. As of October 2, Arctic sea ice VOLUME is ~23% lower than any satellite recorded year AND indications of submarine-detected Arctic sea ice VOLUME.

Yes, the Arctic sea ice Volume is disappearing, day to day, & year to year, quicker than the Arctic sea ice extent, even in the time of Arctic sea ice increase.
