Wow. I and I thought the "fundamentalist christian creationists" were delusional.

At least their delusion merely affect the education of children here in the US, and not the future of the planet.

Why rewrite when it is far more useful the way it is.

If anyone is forced to rewrite history it would be people like. Of course it would be less a rewrite and more an erasure of the embarrassing truths.

So far, you've managed "atsmophere, atsomphere" and now "atmopshere."
There's something distinctly dyslexic about your typing, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty, and you expect me to believe that forty was spelt with a U when you went to school in 60s Ontario.

Weak, more like your hoping that I would quit postin links to those sites since they point out the embarrassing fact that wind and solar were tried in the past and failed. That the designs and tech involved haven't really changed which means the same thing will happen this time.

As long as people like you keep recycling the same sad poclaimations about how solar and wind have not failed, how they are working and have always worked I will keep bringing up the proof that they failed and created a ecological disaster in the process.

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.
http://www.earthfiles.com/news.php...

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.

Ge ready for more useless babble from the dirtling. The dirtling is with its care giver or maybe the dirtling is attending its work place cleaning up crap.
