What happened to being innocent until proven guilty?

That was nullified when the accuser was a woman and the accused was white and heterosexual. Remember the entire justice system has been traduced by the idea that we should believe the victim without evidence as to who the victim is, and by the incredible idea that everyone except white males should be free from being offended by any means whatsoever. Things called 'microaggressions' are seriously discussed in classrooms when the prejudices of non-white, non-heterosexuals are challenged. .

It's only "warming" in the sense of a global average

Which also has not been warming either for the past decade or so. :-)

For which, there are a lot of excuses but not much warming... all that time CO2 has continue to increase so obviously what temperature changes there are, is disconnected from CO2.

Ah, such a simple way of looking at it. But the increase in energy retained on the Earth by enhanced greenhouse warming manifests itself in several ways. Not only can the troposphere warm up but the oceans and the land surface can warm up and ice can melt. When you look at the whole picture it's obvious that the Earth continues to warm.

Since around 93% of the warming goes into the oceans normally is doesn't take much of a shift to make a difference in tropospheric warming which is what you've been seeing. There are some hints that that situation may be about to swing back to the situation we had in the 1980's and 1990's so all I can say is enjoy your "no warming for the past decade or so" while you can, it won't last.

Ah I can help you there. The ARGOS floats show no signs of that heat being "hidden" in the oceans. So I'd have to say that 99.7% of your argument was bullshit with made-up statistics on top.

Thanks for playing.

A simple fix (why am I helping Walmart? Because fraud is fraud) is to present the evidence to a customer information point, where they will check whether the price given is actually offered by Amazon and give a voucher with a code of some kind which can be used at checkout.

Result: Fraud stopped in its tracks.

You can consider yourself a vegan but you're not. You've become omnivorous.

Veganism is a diet for rich western people who have shops stocked with food year round and first world medical facilities. For most of the world, veganism is a cruel joke, if not a slow suicide.
