Yes, David.

It is my children and future grandchildren I am concerned about.

Where did I mention the IPC, Don?

Where did I hold them to be "the fount of all green knowledge"?

I have stated some measured, proven, facts. Average sea and air temperatures HAVE risen, and these rises corrolate with the measured increase in atmospheric CO2.

I also offered some possible ongoing consequences giving equal credence to both ends of the scale.

My opinion is that AGW is a POSSIBLE serious threat to our civilisation and I would rather waste money doing something about something that doesn't come to pass rather than risk lives banking on it not happening.

The most important thing about Global warming is that our personal opinions do not matter and scientific evidence is not 100% reliable. However, we must not just think whether whether our own lifetime might be affected - We must be concerned about the future wellbeing of our planet for future generatrions - including animal and plant species.

Whats the matter, James?
Do you refuse to accept that the fount of all green knowledge, the IPCC, could be wrong? Again?

And @ Jake,
I'm not going to start slating slate, but I think that it is fair to say that the IPCC are regarded by the "green lobby" to be the definitive source.
So, how come they got it so wrong in the short space of 5 years?

Simple enough question, but in his usual fashion, JMcA refuses to answer.

Don

Yes, there are "ocean curtains", or, at least something that operates in that way. These are the ocean currents, and they don't tend to mix due to their different densities.

Jimmy,
Why not just answer the question and stop kicking it into the long grass with some IPCC cut and paste?

I'll pose the question one last time:
IF sea temperatures have risen as you state, how do you explain the 533,000 sq. mile increase in the polar ice cap, when the IPCC said it would be gone?
Do you think that there is some sort of "ocean curtain" whereby your "warm water" is stopped from entering the Arctic?
Just ANSWER the question, man!!!!!
