Scientists Fear Trump Will Dismiss Blunt Climate Report

WASHINGTON The average temperature in the United States has risen rapidly and drastically since 1980, and recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1,500 years, according to a sweeping federal climate change report awaiting approval by the Trump administration.

The draft report by scientists from 13 federal agencies concludes that Americans are feeling the effects of climate change right now. It directly contradicts claims by President Trump and members of his cabinet who say that the human contribution to climate change is uncertain, and that the ability to predict the effects is limited.

There is no good evidence that the MWP was a globally warm period comparable to today. Regionally, there may have been places that exhibited notable warmth, Europe, for example, but all global proxy reconstructions agree it is warmer now, and the temperature is rising faster now, than at any time in the last one or even two thousand years.
If you intend to use common skeptic arguments that have been debunked that is your business;just do not expect me to take you seriously.

The bottom line is that you echo debunked memes regarding AGW.

Attempting to educate this one on ANYTHING of complexity or scientific is a futile effort that will merely create frustration, it is best to simply read it and move along to giggle to yourself.

Denalists have no sense of embarrassment;nowhere does this become more obvious than when dealing with AGW or evolution.

All we can do is accept what nature throws at us.
All you continue to do is document your ignorance of the science you presume to criticize.

Argument from ignorance.
