No, I am not and have never been angered by anything you say.
Sweet!....Then a laugh together it is!!!
No, sorry, I'm laughing at your aspergers-like misuse of language.

Best left like that.

Naaaa, give me an explanation and let me know the details of your accusation. Or, if it is simply an insult, than let me give you praise on how well you are doing with that. Again, I am not being sarcastic. You are actually good at insults.

20 years of build up energy in North Atlantic wiped out, just like that, and CO2 is powerless to stop it.

There's always something....
Seems the bigger concern is the fresh water coming off melting glaciers in Iceland and Greenland reducing the salt ratio in the North Sea ..big deal? Seems so, seems the salt promotes sinking, this fuels the global sea currents...no sinking, no current.
Just thought I'd cheer ya-all up....
Consider the lost of heat above, lends substance to this below...o'no
We be the fathers and mothers of those future fucked..
Right on

You are reading propaganda based on old data. Greenland Ice coming back strong so is Arctic because of cold North Atlantic not the other way around.

Always a pleasure having a celebrity drop in on a conversation,
...
even though that is a misnomer if Marble-garble and Matte, matte, matte, matteo
is involved.
..
Where are you off to?
..
Asia?
..
Or New Jersey. If the former, may it result in a good cook or someone who enjoys swallowing eels, the later, the heiress to a monstrous fortune.
...
All else considered, have a delightful Cristmas.

Currently in northern Montana ...Coeur d' Alene next stop....then west to your neck of the woods...
What a treat, currently 53f looking for a high of 83f...a wood pecker is going off, seems everyone is a critic.
A Merry Christmas to you and yours as well!
Here I thought climate change was real....nice to know we are looking swell!
When I left southern Nevada they forecasted 112f....surely an aberration..
Ha, road trips! Good for the soul
Cheers all
