    Vermin is a pedantic idiot.

    [Recent CO2 emissions have actually risen even more steeply than we feared. As a result, according to most climate models, we should have seen temperatures rise by around 0.25 degrees Celsius (0.45 degrees Fahrenheit) over the past 10 years. That hasn't happened. In fact, the increase over the last 15 years was just 0.06 degrees Celsius (0.11 degrees Fahrenheit) -- a value very close to zero. This is a serious scientific problem that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will have to confront when it presents its next Assessment Report late next year.]
    =====================================
    But Vermin swore that his beloved models were infallible. In fact the models he so adored were even FARTHER off than anyone will admit since they didn't (until recently) account for the absorbtive effect of black carbon (soot) particles on the surface of snow and ice. Whoops! If that effect was in the models from 10 years ago, the error would have been even larger.

    Meanwhile, in the real world, things are apparently a bit more complicated than the idiots Hansen, Algore and Vermin realized whenn they swore up and down that the models were accurate. Hey Vermin, you suppose they are modeling the oceans right?

    • BeachChair, you're such a pathetic liar.

      Say, 'Chair, the Navy drones are now routinely deployed on our Aircraft Carriers. Unlike the F-35 which sits and waits for more welfare money.

      HAAAAAAAAA!!!! Pay closer attention to me,

      Were you home schooled?

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

      OK, show me the range of climate models.

      Furthermore, CLEARLY the Earth has been heating up faster than it ever has in the past million years. So at best the models are not perfect quantitatively, but they correctly predict global warming. You are, at best, like rodentess adducing that only 2 million rather than 3 million people died at Aushwitz as supposed proof the Holocaust did not occur.

      "But Vermin swore that his beloved models were infallible"

      I've said no such thing. You justt make things up. I think the IPCC is a bunch of idiots, and I think Michael Mann is an idiot. You just make things up.

      • "Furthermore, CLEARLY the Earth has been heating up faster than it ever has in the past million years. So at best the models are not perfect quantitatively, but they correctly predict global warming."

        I agree that climate models predicting whatever n-degree of quantitative shift are imperfect (indeed, I would go so far to call such models flawed). That said, I would argue in the main that climatology models for assessing & predicting global warming are qualitatively correct.

        Also not sure why you cite the "past million years." Although its true the planet has undergone several climate shifts (of varying degrees) in the past 2.5 million years, geologically the Pleistocene ended around 12K years ago. What makes the last million years special?

        "I think the IPCC is a bunch of idiots, and I think Michael Mann is an idiot."

        Why? Please be specific.

      • Vermit, whatever adjective one wants to add to the fact that you are an idiot is probably appropriate and well deserved. Of course whether 2 million or 3 million dying at Auschwicz has nothing to do in the proof that the "holocaust" occurred. Who needs a death to prove that a deat occurred? Who needs true premises upon which to prove a conclusion?

      • Now speaking of models gone bad, boerodent, you predicted Obama would lose easily in 2008 and 2012, and that Harry Reid would lose easily in his last election. Were you not being...."pedantic" [sic]?

      • "Vermin is a pedantic idiot. "

        Also, you do not know what the word pedantic means. What you are accusing me of is not being "pedantic. You need to borrow Thesaurus Rodent's Thesaurus.

        I bet your verbal SATs were as bad as your math SATs
