But... it is an outlier. What is your point?

If after this el nino, the avg. temperature curve is flat from about 1997 to present, with 3 el ninos in the mix and 2 large ones at that, it most certainly is an important observation.

The el nino is one thing, unfortunately for those cheering at "the warmest october evah", the la nina might just wipe the smirks of their faces... we'll just have to wait and see. Until then, the alarmists will be smiling and happy that nature is finally cooperating with their models for a brief period.

I'm not assuming anything. I have looked into it, unlike you.

Associating me with a tv personality as an insult is the best you can do?
I don't give one lick about that person. I'm Canadian and don't pay attention to your ridiculous comedy media.

You want answers? Fresh ones off the press??

"Even if we assume that these promises would be extended for another 70 years, there is still little impact: if every nation fulfills every promise by 2030, and continues to fulfill these promises faithfully until the end of the century, and there is no ‘CO leakage’ to non-committed nations, the entirety of the Paris promises will reduce temperature rises by just 0.17C (0.306F) by 2100."

You'r just repeating a load of propaganda fed to you by the media.

It isn't cheaper to change now than to adapt.

Changing will cost TRILLIONS of dollars to prevent "maybe" 0.003C rise in temperature.

How about you ASK the UN and IPCC for specific goals with how much it will cost.
They made calculations. And the numbers look like the above.

Adaptation will cost ORDERS of magnitude less than that.


1. Society will be richer as a whole;
2. Technology continues to advance.

Droughts are natural and they havent been increasing in frequency or intensity, unless you can otherwise prove it.
Same goes for hurricanes.

Tropical disease spreading has not been linked to an increase of 0.8c, that would be rediculous.

Food prices have skyrocketed because of so called GREEN initiatives like wasting maze/corn for fuel production.

Look it up. The rise in world wide food prices is directly linked to the idiotic ethanol projects.

Are you seriously posting with a link to ? A propaganda site founded by a PR firm and expert from Canada, who is on the board of directors of the Suzuki foundation?

An article writen by Kenvin Grandia and green activist and political expert manipulator in that area.


You need to vet your "debunking" much more carefully before you go spreading it all over the place.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
