“…you’re starting to see labored and tortured backpedaling from AGW lovers”
Perhaps you should read the news, which is reporting that things are even worse than had been predicted, largely because scientists are extremely conservative in their predictions. The American Midwest is suffering record-setting cold because climate change is turning the polar vortex inside out. Australia is suffering extreme drought, record high temperatures, and dramatic losses of wildlife. Last year we had record-setting wildfire disasters in California.
You really should read the news. And learn some science while you’re at it.
