Adam, I cannot see how the denialists could be claiming points, as the authors of this paper claim that a steep decline in carbon dioxide emissions are require to meet this target. Denialists claim that CO2 has no effect, so whether it rises or falls, no resulting temperature change would occur. Others are using it to show that there is still hope for the future.

DH 166: It is called the Venturi principle. BPL: Right, the principle by which pressure lessens in a fast-flowing pipe when it goes through a choke point. Where, exactly, is the choke point in Earth's atmosphere? And how does the atmosphere resemble flow in a pipe? Show your work.

DDS, #9-- A second consecutive content-free smear. (Apparently I'm now counting them.)

The absence of cooling cannot lead to warming. The absence of gases cannot lead to any vacuum effects. Good Lord. Definitely bore hole time.

V 157: it is not the absence of oxygen which produces death. Many organisms can survive in an oxygen-free environment. BPL: Try it yourself some time. V: ...a vacuum is produced: NOT by the absence of air from within, but by positive air pressure impinging from without. BPL: Where in God's name did you get that idea? That's about as wrong a statement as I've ever heard. A vacuum is produced by outside pressure? Is English your first language?

DDS: 1) The famous hockey stick BPL: ...has been replicated by fourteen independent studies, according to the NAS report. DDS: 2) Al Gore’s movies BPL: ...are essentially accurate, as a court in the UK decided when some asinine deniers decided to sue him about it. For climate discussions, Al Gore takes the place of Hitler in Godwin's Law. The conversation can only go on so long until someone attacks Al Gore, and the first person to do so loses. It doesn't matter to the question whether Al Gore tortures puppies in his basement. What matters is whether his message is true or false. Not Republican or Democratic, not conservative or liberal, just true or false. You can kill the messenger (and I'm surprised no on has yet taken a shot at Mr. Gore, considering how often and how deeply he is abused on the internet), but that does nothing whatsoever to the validity of the message.

CCHolly @48, I think Steve was referring to high summertime temperatures, not the average. Check out how high and low temperatures have changed during the summer months in the U.S. The low temperatures have increased dramatically over the past century. High temperatures have increased since the cooler 1970s, but are similar to the early 20th century. There has actually been a decrease in the percentage of days above 95F in most areas of the country. An average does not pick up on these subtleties. https://www.epa.gov/climate-indicators/climate-change-indicators-high-and-low-temperatures
