Something that no doubt will be welcomed by the destructive maniacs that make up most of the contributors to this fourm.

Nice to see that knowledge is not needed in this brave new world.

Whats next a surgeon general that does not believe in germ theory?

Promoting a flat earther to NASA chief?

The EPA says what the government tells them to say. It always has. I have already told you this.

Personally, I think he is wrong. There is no global climate change because of two reasons:

1) There is no 'global' climate. The Earth contains many climates. There is no 'global' climate just as there is no 'global' weather.
2) There is no way to measure a 'change' in climate. Climate is defined as weather 'over a long time'. That time is unspecified. That makes climate a unitless value, incapable of describing any quantity of change.

Whether the Earth is warming is another story. Since we can't measure or calculate a global temperature that's of any use, due to mathematical reasons and lack of sufficient instrumentation, global warming itself is not determinable.

Carbon dioxide is not capable of warming anything, any more than any other gas.

"old sick silly sleepy sleezy slimy steenkin' filthy vile reprobate rooting (& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AGW denier liar whiner badnight" bluffs:...climate a unitless value....

Fortunately, "old sick silly sleepy sleezy slimy steenkin' filthy vile reprobate rooting (& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AGW denier liar whiner badnight" retains its eunuch valuelessness.
Meanwhile:
///////
The solar TSI has been languid for many decades & low for 10 years (including a 3+year low setting a 100 year record). Yet, 385+ straight months of temperatures have past, all over the 20th century average. The last 3 years have been successively the hottest years ever recorded. Presently, Arctic sea ice extent has been below 14 million square kilometers, ~ 1.5 million square kilometers LESS than the 1980's. Presently, Arctic sea ice VOLUME is 9,600 cubic kilometers LESS than that of the 1980's. This is an equivalent cube of ice, 21.2 kilometers by 21.2 kilometers by 68,000 feet high, the energy needed to melt it being 30 times the energy consumption of the U.S. All this, while the sun's HEAT.... is low.

Prove what??? A void??? No, it is YOU that has the burden of proof. It is YOU that is changing existing theories of science to accommodate greenhouse effect. It is YOU that is claiming you have enough information to determine whether the globe is warming or not.

I don't have to prove a negative.

Your negative is to change the conclusions of proper scientists by quoting "bought & paid for" oil, energy, business & re-pubic-lick-un PR propaganda shills, who are too money-hungry & old to remember their original dedication to truth.

Are you a dummy or something? He made a flat statement. He was wrong that we do not have enough instrumentation but the present instrumentation we have has had such a short period that the record from that is not useable for anything other than trying to lie to others.

But unless you have ANYTHING to contradict him with you make yourself look like someone that doesn't speak English. "Prove it" indeed. What sort of idiot are you?

Actually what Scott Pruitt said was "I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there's tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact, so no, I would not agree that it's a primary contributor to the global warming that we see. But we don't know that yet. We need to continue the debate and continue the review and the analysis."

Where in that statement did he say that he didn't believe that CO2 caused climate change?

It seems to me to be a bad lawyers statement, There is not "tremendous debate" in the scientific community on this issue, you wont get that from listening to talk radio or wherever you get your news from. The fact is it has warmed and will continue to warm due to our actions, we are not all "doomed" but our actions now will impact the quality of life of people in the future.

In the minds of the True Believers anything that can remotely be interpreted as a statement other than undeniable support is undeniable opposition.

37 scientists out of some 11,000 at the initial meeting of the IPCC agreed unequivocally that there was climate change but there's NO debate.

"Studies" since then have pointedly left out scientists who disagree with either the conclusions or the science but there's no debate?

These are exactly the sort of thing we've come to expect from you spot. Especially the part about your interpreting what someone meant rather than what they said.
