We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"There has been no warming in fifteen years." Yes indeedy, Junkie, and the 'bought and paid for scientists' who predicted climate Armageddon are having an embarrassing time trying to climb down from that erroneous position.
As far as I can tell, the worst offenders -- Hansen, Mann, Gore and their coterie -- are still peddling the same line, and some of the same idiots are still buying it. AP comes to mind, along with Sierra Club, Northern Plains Resource Council, and a lot of proglodytes.
Actually, there may have been precious little warming before 1995 either. Most of the claimed warming is within the limits of error on the equipment, the changes have been up and down since 1850, most of the globe's surface is a blank slate as far as measurements go -- and then we learn that many sites had measured declines "adjusted" into upward trends. It seems likely that all of the trends and changes that have been turned into "climate disruption" are entirely normal. It is clear that human CO2 is far too small an element to be changing anything that we could measure. Same is true of methane releases or any other human element. Some forms of land use do seem to affect local variability.
Dr. Torch is of course correct -- statistically, you're supposed to use one LESS decimal point than your measurements, i.e. if you measure to tenths, your stats go to full degrees.
