There is no evidence for global warming

Except the myriad of evidence for global warming:

Every single one of these links will take you to a scientific journal. Not a news agency, not a think tank, not a blog, not a personal website, nothing but scientific journals. This post is not for the people who still think the earth is flat, or there are martian aqueducts on Mars. It is for those of you who are lost and truly want an answer to the global warming controversy. The amount of data, just like the amount of data on evolution is absolutely staggering. There are hundreds of more reports like this that speak on everything from global warming validity, to it's effects on the oceans, biological life, the polar caps, soil, ecosystems, weather, etc.

If you want more then go to Google scholar and type in global warming.

I won't bother to answer any of your childish 1 liner responses or immediate refutations, so I wouldn't even bother posting here. You deniers were wrong on the helocentric nature of the solar system, the spherical shape of the planet, the origin of life, dinosaurs, pre-man fossils, tectonic plates, moving glaciers, the age of the earth, the size of the earth, the creation of the earth, the existence of atoms. Every single one of these now obvious scientific ideas were at one point scoffed at by ignorant deniers. So go eat your stupid cake and stfu.

If you want to try and comment about the climate gate scandal then you should know that ALL of those scientists have been vindicated by a commitee who have found that they did nothing scientifically deceitful what so ever. Even FAUX news has had to say so:

Fingerprints of global warming on wild animals and plants

Fingerprints of global warming on wild animals and plants : Abstract : Nature

Over the past 100 years, the global average temperature has increased by approximately 0.6 °C and is projected to continue to rise at a rapid rate1. Although species have responded to climatic changes throughout their evolutionary history2, a primary concern for wild species and their ecosystems is this rapid rate of change3. We gathered information on species and global warming from 143 studies for our meta-analyses. These analyses reveal a consistent temperature-related shift, or 'fingerprint', in species ranging from molluscs to mammals and from grasses to trees. Indeed, more than 80% of the species that show changes are shifting in the direction expected on the basis of known physiological constraints of species. Consequently, the balance of evidence from these studies strongly suggests that a significant impact of global warming is already discernible in animal and plant populations. The synergism of rapid temperature rise and other stresses, in particular habitat destruction, could easily disrupt the connectedness among species and lead to a reformulation of species communities, reflecting differential changes in species, and to numerous extirpations and possibly extinctions.

Acceleration of global warming due to carbon-cycle feedbacks in a coupled climate model

Acceleration of global warming due to carbon-cycle feedbacks in a coupled climate model : Abstract : Nature

The continued increase in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide due to anthropogenic emissions is predicted to lead to significant changes in climate1. About half of the current emissions are being absorbed by the ocean and by land ecosystems2, but this absorption is sensitive to climate3, 4 as well as to atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations5, creating a feedback loop.

The Impact of global warming on agriculture

Over the last decade, scientists have extensively studied the greenhouse effect, which holds that the accumulation of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases is expected to produce global warming and other significant climatic changes over the next century.

The Impact of Global Warming MIT

MIT Press Journals - Review of Economics and Statistics - Abstract

For reasons that will be discussed later there is general agreement that increasing CO2 will produce warming due to its ability to absorb in the infrared radiation.

Global Warming and Northern Hemisphere Sea Ice Extent

Global Warming and Northern Hemisphere Sea Ice Extent -- Vinnikov et al. 286 (5446): 1934 -- Science

Surface and satellite-based observations show a decrease in Northern Hemisphere sea ice extent during the past 46 years. A comparison of these trends to control and transient integrations (forced by observed greenhouse gases and tropospheric sulfate aerosols) from the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory and Hadley Centre climate models reveals that the observed decrease in Northern Hemisphere sea ice extent agrees with the transient simulations, and both trends are much larger than would be expected from natural climate variations.

Global Warming is Man Made


Since 1905 the average temperature of the planet, then at 14oC, has increased 2.5%, an unusually rapid rate (a 0.35oC rise). Over the last 25 years, from 1970 to 2005, it went up 4% (or 0.55oC). The total increase in global average temperature represents a rise of 5.4% (or 0.74oC) since 1750. Extreme global warming skeptics claim that a 0.74oC increase in global average temperature is insignificant. On the contrary, “The warming trend over the last 50 years (1955 to 2005) is nearly twice that for the last 100 years”, the IPCC scientists say. And much of it happened in the last 15 years! True, some cool years do occur. This is not a matter of the normal variability of temperature (see Table 1 below). The key point is that the overall trend since 1850, and especially since 1990, is that of a consistent, increasingly and unusually rapid, increase in global average temperatures.

Model estimates of CO2 emissions from soil in response to global warming

Model estimates of CO2 emissions from soil in response to global warming

ONE effect of global warming will be to accelerate the decomposition of soil organic matter, thereby releasing CO2 to the atmosphere, which will further enhance the warming trend1–7. Such a feedback mechanism could be quantitatively important, because CO2 is thought to be responsible for approx55% of the increase in radiative forcing arising from anthropogenic emissions of gases to the atmosphere8, and there is about twice as much carbon in the top metre of soil as in the atmosphere9.

Quantifying Global Warming from the Retreat of Glaciers

Quantifying Global Warming from the Retreat of Glaciers -- Oerlemans 264 (5156): 243 -- Science

Records of glacier fluctuations compiled by the World Glacier Monitoring Service can be used to derive an independent estimate of global warming during the last 100 years. Records of different glaciers are made comparable by a two-step scaling procedure: one allowing for differences in glacier geometry, the other for differences in climate sensitivity. The retreat of glaciers during the last 100 years appears to be coherent over the globe. On the basis of modeling of the climate sensitivity of glaciers, the observed glacier retreat can be explained by a linear warming trend of 0.66 kelvin per century.

GW deniers are very much like evolution deniers.
