Your headline reeks of ignorance, subby. And it pains me to explain this to you, because I'm sure you won't understand, but I'm a glutton for punishment so I guess I'll try anyway.

See, let's just say that 2012 *was* the hottest year on record. And there's no guarantee that it actually was, of course, because there's endless proof that climate scientists are constantly emailing lies to each other. But let's say it was, just for argument's sake. So what does that mean?

Well, let's consider the first possibility, which is that 2013 ends up being cooler than 2012. So, YAY. You got it right, 2012 WAS the hottest year on record. But if it's getting cooler, then how is the earth getting WARMER, dumbass?

It's not. It's getting cooler. So, done. You, 0. Me, 1.

On the other hand, let's say that 2013 ends up being hotter than 2012. That means that 2012 was *not* the hottest year on record, right? I mean, can you deny that? So it turns out that 2012 wasn't the hottest year, and 2013 was. And climate activists or whatever they want to call themselves this year will be all like, "Oh, see, this proves that the earth IS getting hotter."

But you know what that's really called? Of course you do, because you probably spend a lot of time debating dumb points in internet forums. It's called "moving the goal posts." It's like, "oh, 2012 is the hottest year EVAR. Everybody panic!" And then 2013 rolls around and you're like, "oh, 2013 is the hottest year EVAR. Everybody panic and forget what we said about 2012!" You mess up calling the hottest year on record, and so instead of saying, "wow, I was wrong, 2012 WASN'T the hottest year on record," you try to just pretend that you never said that at all. It's astounding chutzpah, really. But in the end, for all intensive purposes, it's completely dishonest. And dishonesty will never win you anything. You, 0, Me, 2.

Please. I implore you. Study what you're talking about before you post your next headline. There's enough misunderstanding and stupidity on here as it is, and it would behoof you to not be a part of it.

Zasteva: EVERYBODY PANIC: If we do heat up the planet a few degrees in a few hunderd years, so be it. If it were to happen soon enough, I'll emigrate from Florida to Canada. No biggie.  Cananian babes in bikinis do not disturb my happiness very much.

Given your skepticism, I expect that you will be behind the curve in trying to sell your property and immigrate to Canada. You will find the market for property in Florida is greatly reduced, since too many people are selling to move north, so you won't get much for your property. And you'll be disappointed to discover that the Canadian government has tightened immigration restrictions because of the influx of climate refugees. And if you do find a way to get in, you'll discover that Canadian bikini babes don't really want much to do with Americans whose stubborn refusal to moderate their behavior caused so many problems for everyone and made them the most unpopular set of immigrants ever.


You're saying that those of us who like hot weather will be able to buy cheap land in the south? Excuse me, I have to go burn a pile of tires.

I can't believe that I'm saying this but... Florida really isn't that bad. I still wish that our waters weren't shark and gator infested but I've met some pretty great people since I've moved here. We have TONS of awesome beer bars, Miami and the Keys are a short drive away, and the theme parks are actually pretty fun when you can get into them for free.

Oh yeah, and I work outside (overnight, to boot) and I've only seen frost twice so far this winter. Have fun shoveling your snow :)


Different strokes. I have nothing against the land of Florida, but I'm not a tropical type of person. I like winter, skiing, snow and mountains. All things that seem to be consipicuously absent in Florida. I do sail though, and imagine doing that everyday could keep me pretty happy along with lots of scantily clad femaile beach goers.

What was this thread about again? Oh yeah, going in circles about global warming. Florida may actually be more interesting conversation at this point.

OK, so this is off-topic a bit, but has anybody else heard this?

I read somewhere that back in the 1920s when they made the first chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants, they were seriously considering using bromine as well. Turns out that, years later, they found out that bromine-carbon compounds are far, far, far more dangerous to the ozone layer than chlorofluorocarbons by a wide margin. If we had gone with bromine in the 20s, we wouldn't have much of an ozone layer left by the time we discovered what was happening. Without an ozone layer, the ultra-violet radiation out there would be a hell of a lot higher--anything from an epidemic of skin cancer to the destruction of basically all life on Earth. I can't find anything on Wikipedia about this ('natch), and was wondering if there's anything else out there on this...

You know what, let's just go ahead and hand the reins of the economy over to the likes of Al Gore, who will surely save us. I mean, if we give him all the money and power he asks for to re-write modern economies back into the stone age, that'll save us, right?

Oh, wait, Al Gore is filthy rich right now with Saudi Oil money?

Now who will we turn to for salvation from our carbon sins?
Where can I buy a carbon indulgence?!?!

Wow,.. hottest year on record... given that the records go back a whopping 100-120 years, and what's commonly referred to as geologic timeline is at least three orders of magnitude greater than that, and, if you go back forty years to when the theory of global cooling was king, suffice it to say, yet again, nothing to see here.

Thanks for playing.

It's pronounced pacKAGE: Psycat: Here's how to verify Global Warming. Go to Conservapedia and see what they have to say about it. Since Conservapedia is 180-degrees out of whack on everything from evolution to Einstein's relativity, just take what they have to sway about Global Warming and invert it to find the absolute truth...

Let me guess, relativity is just a "theory?"


Nope. Shaftfly believes General and Special Relativity beget moral relativity and liberalism. He's written reams and reams of "proofs" demonstrating (for a certain value of the word) that the Theory of Relativity is completely useless to science and engineering and leads to moral and ethical decay.

Somehow the man actually has a B.S.E. in electrical engineering. Thinking about that for too long will give you a migraine.

I'm still not sure if that site is serious or just trolling all of us.


Having spent a few years of my childhood in close proximity of Southern Baptists, I'm afraid these folks are real. I can't read Conservapedia for more than 10 minutes without getting a serious headache. Seriously, there should be a picture of Einstein pointing to the number 70 and saying "Your IQ must be lower than this to enter."

Psst.... here's something from the very same folks who provided many of the numbers misused in your chart (they generated all the ones that start with "had").

But... since you won't read it and likely couldn't understand it even if you bothered, I can summarize it.

The TLDR; says that you, David Rose, and the Daily Fail are full of hot air, so to speak. Personally I think you're all full of something else that's warm and steaming.
