Ransom’s analysis is limited to a lame joke about Al Gore. The papers on Arctic ice loss and changes to weather patterns are also poorly treated by Ransom. In his simple world, global warming means that every place warms at the same time and rate. Unfortunately, climate and weather have more complex interactions that Ransom can’t be bothered with. Finally, he make a strange segue into being gay. Clearly trying to get the page view trifecta by mentioning climate change, Al Gore, and Gays in the same piece. Pretty pathetic.

Great point!

After all, it's not as if Ransom is pointing out the absurdity of you alarmists' shrill predictions, rather than presenting himself as an expert.

Thanks, too, for pointing out the silliness in interpreting "GLOBAL warming" as a trend affecting the GLOBE. Clearly, to shrill alarmists, that's just silly. Doggone inconvenient thickening of Antarctic ice sheets.....

Even the IPCC (power-grabbing statist alarmists that they are) has acknowledged the FACT that the alarmists' models have proved to have VERY poor predictive power, given the last 17 YEARS have not shown global warming. (Um, M.Hillinger - I'm interpreting GLOBAL warming as "warming affecting the GLOBE." Sorry if that's inconvenient for you hysterics.)

You need to do your homework. A recent report said artic ice melt was from low thin clouds, water vapor, no co2.

You cannot simultaneously try and come off as the rational dispassionate person in the argument and begin by posting an ad hominem. Screed and slapdash have no part in your argument. Second, the fact that Ransom uses Al Gore as a red herring also has no point in your argument.

The idea that this is a complex issue argues against your claiming the is settled science. The fact that vegetation shifts and earth tempatures go up and down at different places in different times leaves massive doubt as to what is taking place.

What is causing the ice sheet in Antarctica to thicken?

Dear Comrade Undoc,

Please note that the Ransom Style Book will no longer recognize the phrase Hooverville Follies. Just as the Associated Press has axed the term Illegal Immigrant, we have replaced the term Hooverville Follies with a more apt phrase: Undocumented Intelligence.  Thank you.

Look, I’m not the...
