    I am aware of those, Barry. This study suggests that RC may have to revise its estimates upwards. I don't recall RC's articles including the forest floor component. And that is huge for Canada.

    I had a friend who died a couple of years ago. Not in the course of this pursuit, though, so it was not that happy ending.

    One of his clients had a chain of "adult" movie stores and Bill had to watch every one to assess whether it would fall within legal bounds.

    Just out of curiosity, I plotted the altimeter sea level trend 2003-present, to compare with 2003-2011 discussed above (2.4mm/yr). Currenty at 2.8mm/yr from 2003. Sea level rise from 2011-present is 6.1mm/yr.

    This doesn't indicate acceleration since 2003-2011, of course, nor does cherry-picking periods within the 21-year altimeter record indicate deceleration. The trend differences are a result of interannual variability. Best estimate of a signal in the data comes from the full period (3.1mm/yr +/-0.4).

    here
    and
    here

    I thought the pie chart was an obvious parody, and I left the link to the real quote, but that is no excuse if it is a violation of the rules.

    Charles, I am sorry, and I wont do that again. As you know this thread, for a long time, has been kind of the "Wild West" of P.ie .where we had been left to our own, but it seems as though I have crossed an important line.


    I also made an inappropriate remark to Owedtojoy; here , I really just thought the idea of anyone arguing this stuff while falling asleep was funny. Perhaps there is some cultural, or other, meaning of which I am unaware. In any event I value this community and I publicly apologize to the both of you, as well as anyone else who was offended.

    Best Regards -
    While I admire you morals, I must admit I find this a little incongruous that this post is "liked" by two individuals who have unapologetically made direct personal disparaging comments about me and others.

    No one is above reproach here. Oneshotleft's post is a fair message. Let's see the good in it and be guided by it.

    As Barry said, oneshot's post was gracious and deserves approval. But, you can't leave it at that. When was any any of your posts misrepresented and altered. When did you not berate others for disagreeing with you?

    Leave it alone.

    However, it should be said that sometimes the moderators are overzealous and "handbag" posts that they do not understand and that have no ill content.

    A very worthy post from Roy Spencer at WUWT.

    wattsupwiththat.com/2014/05/01/top-ten-skeptical-arguments-that-dont-hold-water/

    There are extremists on both sides of the debate. Spencer has attempted to move the critics on to firmer ground. Bravo.

    You are most welcome to point out where I have erred, and if it is meet, I will apologise for it.

    Failing that, please don't hesitate to do so in the future, and I will try to accomodate your concerns. Sincerely.
