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.

There are basically no credible scientists arguing if global warming is a thing. There are also no credible scientists arguing over whether it will negatively impact humanity. The argument is over what's causing it and the magnitude of the damage. Please note that the consensus is that the damage will be massive, it's just about _how_ massive....

You've just demonstrated that you don't understand science or the history of science.

You can always rely on social scientists (now there's an oxymoron) to demonstrate a false dichotomy and a few other logical fallacies.

1. The earth is going to warm 3.2 degrees in just over a century. Do you
a) raise taxes on everything now including fossil fuels forcing many people into life-strangling fuel poverty and condemning billions to staying in poverty or
b) adapt to the changes, encourage as many people as possible to survive through prosperity or
c) question the validity of the rise in future temperatures as an unquestionable fact. You CONSERVATIVE DENIER.

2. Violent home break-ins are rising as the number of guns has reached saturation point. Do you
a) get armed yourself, increasing the likelihood that you or your children may be injured by having arms and ammunition in the house or
b) call for stricter gun controls, which limit legitimate gun ownership while doing nothing to prevent illegal gun possession or
c) question the validity of the rise in home break-ins as an unquestioned fact. You LIBERAL COWARD

3. You read a survey in a scientific journal and you possess a brain (rare on the Internet, go with me on this). Do you
a) accept its conclusions because its science
b) reject its conclusions because its flawed.
c) question the validity of the experiment because you probably think the moon landings were faked. YOU ARE A CONSPIRACY NUT.

That does not compute.
