Well, a new study out of Canada is linking CFCs more closely to the warming/cooling trends of the last 3 years than.  Global Warming Scientists still can't explain the cooling in the earlier part of last century (they blame aerosols, but as there is no data it is merely conjecture, nor can they explain the last 15 years).  The CFC study may point to the climate pattern the last 30 years (data they have on CFCs).

C02 still contributes, but it may not be the primary drivers as many would like you to believe.

Interesting theory. My own theory is that giant glowing ball of gas 93 million miles away occasionally puts out more solar radiation, which in turn heats the earth a few degrees up or down depending on the output (giving some sort of cooling or heating effect in the process, crazy as that sounds.)

Dear ice age. How the hell did you happen?

Well, no.

The sun is experiencing a downturn in its activity levels.


Thank you, try again.

And my counter;

etc, etc.

Doesn't prove jack sh*t.

There's thousands and thousands of articles on the internet that can prove whatever you possibly believe in. And that's the point. It's argument and anger over nothing.



So you say the sun is experiencing less activity. I prove you're wrong, and you counter with two articles that have nothing to do with solar activity...

Brilliant.


Anyway, here's why your counter is also amazingly wrong. Global Warming, surprisingly enough, deals with global temperatures. The "Global Warming Stopped 16 Years Ago" crowd are obsessed with a single data point, atmospheric temperature, which is only *part* of the globe. The majority of temperature increases are happening in the earths oceans. As it turns out, water holds way more heat than air due to it being a better conductor. http://skepticalscience.com/global-warming-stopped-in-1998.htm


Please try to cite actual science next time, instead of derp from The Daily Fail and Yahoo.
