    That report compared 117 climate predictions made in the 1990's to the actual amount of warming. Out of 117 predictions, the study’s author told FoxNews.com, 3 were roughly accurate and 114 overestimated the amount of warming. On average, the predictions forecasted two times more global warming than actually occurred

    you have to remember that this is by the Daily Mail's David Rose, who writes story after story claiming studies have proven warming isn't taken place. And time after time, the scientists who wrote those studies come out a day or two later saying "No, that's not what our study found."

    You do understand that this report uses actual data, not hearsay, to determine that Climate Change A.K.A., Global Warming is practically non existent, and that the models the UN experts were pimping out were way off and therefore incorrect.

    In other words... its more like guess work than actual science.

    You know what's odd about that picture? Not the sea ice, but the snow cover. There appears to have been almost zero snow in the entire northern hemisphere in winter of 1980. I wonder why we don't hear more about that.

    you do realize that the guy who is telling us what the report says has been corrected over and over by scientists. And in this story:

    You do realize that white stuff isn't sea ice, don't you?

    Cause sea ice is, well, it's on the sea.

    Actual sea ice, the purple-y stuff there, appears to have decreased.

    I mean, if someone is going to go through the trouble of cherry picking two satellite images to try to make some unscientific, sophomoric meme, at least pick two images that actually support what you're suggesting.

    Rade is not only lightening fast, he makes another excellent point about this image.

    You were kind enough to explain where the actual sea ice could be found in the images.

    The actual numbers are correct, but the models used by the UN to predict climate are still wrong.

    So let me just ask this: if the models used by the UN, as you curiously call the IPCC, were "correct", would you believe that humans can influence the climate?

    The only ones that are wrong are the UN, Al Gore and Hussein.

    I think you are missing my question. If Sadam's, Hitler's, and the rest of the communist UN's models were not "wrong" (by which I am assuming that you are talking about inaccuracy of the global temperature predictions?), would you believe in anthropogenic global warming?

    You do love ridiculous hypotheticals. I'll pass on that game.

    ah, I see. The guy who's wrong time after time must be right on this one, even though the group that issued the report said he's wrong again.
    And you know he's right ... how?

    There was a guy I think in Australia that just won an election by running on ANTI-GW. I think there are two other ones as well.

    It's just a picture that I pulled from images. I didn't create the images. So why not comment on the picture itself and the snow coverage rather than moving the goal post?

    Poor Rade! You don't expect him to give you a straight answer, do you? He will deflect with but Muslim Obama, The Illuminati, Communists, Socialists, I should be able to own a machine gun, Obamacare, etc....
