    He demonstrates his flawed mental model, which prevents him from honestly appraising science.

    Now who does he remind me of?

    “It’s true. Predictions rise, but global temperatures don’t.”

    Temperatures have risen at a rate of 0.6C per decade from 2011 to 2012.

    Rising.

    It’s true. Predictions rise, but global temperatures don’t.

    What are you talking about?

    I have a denier in my corner of the internet that will not relent with the question of ” how much has the planet has warmed since 2000.”

    I’m a novice but familiar with a lot of the literature. I was going to post a response from ‘skeptical science’ on global warming since 1998. It’s a good primer on the Earth’s energy budget but any other answers would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    “I have a denier in my corner of the internet that will not relent with the question of ” how much has the planet has warmed since 2000.””

    Heh, little did he realise his wording was precisely wrong for his trolling purposes.

    Oceans are part of the planet.

    I don’t know why you all get so cross with me, I only try to help.

    So let me try again, this time I want to bring you little Androids, sorry, Deltoids up to speed with the latest lingo, after all as you chant your mantras at the chapel it is essential to get the language right. This is the latest and anyone who giggles will get a hundred lines and stay in after school:

    “Predict retrospectively”

    Ain’t that a corker?! And, no, it’s not from ‘Alice in Wonderland’ since you ask, er, you did ask, didn’t you?

    And also, I bring you glad tidings. Now we all know where that missing heat from the last 10-15 years went – it sank into the oceans, er, but in the *deep* part of the oceans, it left the surface as cold as, well, as cold as the bloody sea always is when I splash about in it.

    Anyway, no need to thank me . . .

    Tony’s latest crop of articles:
    We’re heading for an ice age, the slayers are wrong – except for Tisdale (is he an actual slayer, or just a nincompoop?), who thinks global warming is caused by ENSO and if you subtract double the heat from the warming, the oceans are cooling.

    Hard to get your head around all that. Almost as bad as Duff.

    And when you’re wrong, Grima?

    What then?

    Ain’t that a corker?!

    Only if you’re a complete blithering buffoon, Duffer.

    To those with operating brains, the point is pellucidly clear.

    it left the surface as cold as, well, as cold as the bloody sea always is when I splash about in it.

    It left the surface as cold as the warmest decade ever on record.

    Duffer, you’re even in denial of warmth.

    “That is Girma’s prediction”

    Considering you are a complete and total idiot, your prediction ain’t worth beans.
