Dan S, I continue to giggle at your posts. You really are a one trick pony. Bash those who don't buy into your lefty ideology. I am surprised I didn't read any thing from you complimenting our local paper for publishing Timothy Egan's (NY Times) hatred filled rant on Saturday Oct. 11. This country has huge issues fomented by those on the left and the right, but in your world it's still Bush's fault. Dude that was so 7 years ago. The Dems had the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives from 2008 election. That went so well that the Dems lost the house in 2010. Had the Repubs not nominated a couple of numbskulls as candidates in 2012 the Dems may have lost enough seats then that the Dems losing the senate his year may have been a forgone conclusion. Please open your mind to the fact that your liberal pols have responsibility for the mess this country is in.

Scott, Just call me Captain Ahab.

Some interesting stuff from another 5th grader. So much for "settled science".

Why I love science.

http://www.fraserinstitute.org/uploadedFiles/fraser-ca/Content/research-news/research/publications/climate-policy-implications-of-the-hiatus-in-global-warming.pdf

A brief snippet from the research piece "Since economic models are trained to match climate models, if climate models overstate the effects of CO2 emissions, economic models will overstate the social damages associated with them. In fact, economic models of climate policy allow for even more exaggerated effects of carbon dioxide emissions than do climate models. Consequently, there is good reason to suppose that economic models too may be subject to revision over the next few years. One implication of these points is that, since climate policies operate over such a long time frame, during which it is virtually certain that important new information will emerge, it is essential to build into the policy framework clear feedback mechanisms that connect new data about climate sensitivity to the stringency of the emissions control policy. A second implication is that, since important new information about climate sensitivity is expected within a few years, there is value to waiting for this information before making any irreversible climate policy commitments, in order to avoid making costly decisions that are revealed a short time later to be unnecessary." Respectfully, Your favorite 5th grader

Scott - "more violent weather" OOPS. LOL Opinion 5/08/2013 @ 10:12AM 18,878 views

"Sorry Global Warmists, But Extreme Weather Events Are Becoming Less Extreme" "Just about every type of extreme weather event is becoming less frequent and less severe in recent years as our planet continues its modest warming in the wake of the Little Ice Age. While global warming activists attempt to spin a narrative of ever-worsening weather, the objective facts tell a completely different story." "New Records for Lack of Tornadoes" "New Records for Lack of Hurricanes" "Pretty much all other extreme weather events are becoming less frequent and less severe, also. Soil moisture is in long-term improvement at nearly all sites in the Global Soil Moisture Data Bank. Droughts are less frequent and less severe than in prior, colder centuries. The number of wildfires is in long-term decline despite a recent change in wildfire policy that no longer actively suppresses wildfires. Just about any way you measure it, extreme weather events are becoming quite rare." link to the article http://www.forbes.com/sites/jamestaylor/2013/05/08/sorry-global-warmists-but-extreme-weather-events-are-becoming-less-extreme/

Climate will do what it has done for millions of years. It will change. It warms up, it cools down. There has been no global warming in 18+ years. Maybe the co2 increase is preventing "global warming". Respectfully, Your favorite 5th grader

Hey Scott, More from another apparently 5th grader as she doesn't buy into your global warming/climate change ideology. LOL "My WSJ op-ed: Global warming statistical meltdown

Posted on October 9, 2014 | 494 Comments

by Judith Curry

I was invited to submit an op-ed regarding the recent Lewis/Curry paper on climate sensitivity. For background, see ◾Lewis and Curry: Climate sensitivity uncertainty ◾Lewis and Crok: Climate less sensitive to CO2 than models suggest ◾Challenging the two degree target

WSJ editorial

The full text of the op-ed is reproduced below, WSJ [link].

The Global Warming Statistical Meltdown

At the recent United Nations Climate Summit, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warned that “Without significant cuts in emissions by all countries, and in key sectors, the window of opportunity to stay within less than 2 degrees [of warming] will soon close forever.” Actually, this window of opportunity may remain open for quite some time. A growing body of evidence suggests that the climate is less sensitive to increases in carbon-dioxide emissions than policy makers generally assume—and that the need for reductions in such emissions is less urgent."

Dan Kuechenmeister 1 week, 3 days ago on Ciao from Cortina: Ideally Italy

Rhys, You asked "Dan -- Would I prefer the Alps up north, or the vineyards down south? The bustle of Rome, or the quaint countryside? And the cuisine: Northern, or Sicilian?" The answer is yes. When you go, go slowly, enjoy where your feet take you. I don't think you will be disappointed. And the cuisine, hard to beat a local restaurant in a small town that has been in the family for generations. I have yet to find anything like it here in the USA.

Rhys, When you get the chance (make the chance) go for it. You can find internet. Being in Italy is like being a kid in a candy store. Hard to decide what to do next, but what ever you choose to do will be awesome. And yes, thanks Sophie and the Pilot for reminding me what a great place Italy can be to visit.

Dan Kuechenmeister 1 week, 5 days ago on Paula Salky: Anthem deserves respect

Sorry Eric, You may have stepped out of bounds. Mr. Keith made no mention of the US government. You are free to assume that might be what he meant, but you might be incorrect. Americans through out history have done positive things. i would suspect even you could agree with that. If Mr. Keith confirms he was specifically talking of the US government then that becomes an interesting topic eh.

Jeff, Tab is still around. The aspartame must be why I glow in the dark. Have 8 12 packs in the garage if you need a fix. True story. My first exposure to alcohol was warm Fresca and gin in the back seat of a buddy's car. Now use Fresca to make lower cal margaritas. Prost!
