[Coral-List] More on climate

All John Coleman does is reiterate a bunch of arguments plucked  
straight out from the skeptic cupboard. Lets see, solar activity as  
the main driver of current warming? Oh yes, its in there. But seeing  
that there has been no positive trend in any solar index since the  
1960s (and possibly a small negative trend), we can safely conclude  
that solar forcing cannot be responsible for the recent temperature  
trends. Cherry-picking data to show recent cooling trends? Sure,  
Coleman shows a graph with temperature curve from 2002 to 2006 and  
confidently claims that this proves that the dastardly IPCC and their  
cronies are wrong. Strange that the founder of the weather channel  
cant tell the difference between climate and weather; and that he  
chooses to ignore the latest report from the World Metereological  
Organization (http://www.wmo.int/pages/mediacentre/press_releases/pr_869_en.html 
) that states: ” The year 2009 is likely to rank in the top 10 warmest  
on record since the beginning of instrumental climate records in 1850,  
according to data sources compiled by the World Meteorological  
Organization (WMO).” and that ” The decade of the 2000s (2000–2009)  
was warmer than the decade spanning the 1990s (1990–1999), which in  
turn was warmer than the 1980s (1980–1989).” Does he mention  
climategate? Ofcourse! Data has been fabricated and journals pressed  
in not accepting papers that prove global warming is a hoax! Except  
that the emails referred to in the climategate scandal do not in any  
way show that data has been fabricated or that any research has been  
stopped from publication (see John Brunos post on this on  
climateshifts, http://www.climateshifts.org/?p=3717).

There’s a few more, but I’ll leave it to other to debunk them if they  
see fit. I’m just curious as to why, when all of John Colemans  
arguments have been dealt with, recently, on this mailing-list, we  
must still be exposed to them over and over again?

All the best,
