The people claiming global warming is man caused fail on two points. First, they cannot show that humans have anything to do with it, assuming it is happening. Second, they fail to prove, in accordance with the customary scientific methods and practices, that global warming is happening at all.
Global warming, human caused or not, might be real, but the people claiming it act like liars. Real credibility problem there.
To change the subject a bit, we are still in an "ice age". Specifically, we are in what is called an "interglacial period" (I prefer "glacial minimum"). These typically last between 10 and 15 thousand years, pick your expert (PYE), and the last one was about that long ago PYE. We are far more likely to face Fimbul Winter than see cherry trees growing in Nome, or being able to grow salad greens in Point Barrow. Does anyone really think the Inuit and related peoples are going to starve if things warm up enough for moose to spread to the Arctic coast? (Hunting something bigger, fatter, and more plentiful is a hardship?)
If AGW holds off Fimbul Winter, I'm all for it. If it forces an end to the current ice age, I'm cheering from the rooftops.
