I have to hand it to you, those are some primo arguments, though it’s interesting that you decline to answer my question about where the numbers 0.4C and 0.8C came from (and what time frame they cover), and that you decline to provide links or references for any of the new arguments. Among other interesting things.

“Most” doesn’t mean “possibly half” either.

Even with your generous admission of “possibly 0.2C”, it’s disingenuous to say you’re agreeing with the 97% of Anderegg 2010. Generously I’ll suppose you agree with the 6% of Stenhouse 2014 on the question of past warming.

Unlike you, though, I’m not going to slam those scientists’ work as “mostly garbage”.

“Mostly Garbage”

NASA says the temperature has risen 0.94C since 1880, by the way. Elsewhere on the site it says “the planet’s average surface temperature has risen about 2.0 degrees Fahrenheit (1.1 degrees Celsius) since the late 19th century”. Why should the window to be limited to 50 years?

P.S. Who’s this Michael Mann and why should I care?

P.P.S. I am not confused. Puzzled, about people like you, but not confused.

Like what you read? Give David Piepgrass a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
