11. Higher temps - well that's because of the urban heat island effect that screw up temp measurements

and blah blah, and besides it all stopped warming in 1998 and blah blah blah and there's all these emails about the fake hockey stick and blah blah and the satellite temperature adjustments were miscalibrated and blah blah

I found this article in case some fuckhead starts in on some garbage on temperature measurements:

Looking for signs of global warming? It's all around you , AP, 6/19/18
https://www.mprnews.org/story/2018/06/19/climate-change-signs-all-around

... These days, plants and animals are arriving at Rocky Mountain Biological Lab a week or two earlier than they were 30 years ago. The robins that used to arrive in early April now show up in mid-March.

... Marmots end their winter slumber ever earlier.

Evidence is in the blueberry bushes in Henry David Thoreau's Walden Pond, the dwindling population of polar bears of the Arctic and the dying corals worldwide. Scientists have documented 28,800 cases of plants and animals "responding consistently to temperature changes," a 2008 study in the journal Nature said.

... Starting about 30 years ago, the growing season in general around the Northern Hemisphere "rather abruptly changed to a new normal," with earlier springs and later falls, said Mark Schwartz, a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee geographer. In the Lower 48 states, 2012 was the earliest growing season on record until it was edged out by 2017, he said.

In the U.S., fall's first frost is happening about nine days on average later since 30 years ago, while the last frost of spring is happening almost four days earlier,

more, much more

... Katharine Hayhoe, a climate scientist at Texas Tech, has heard non-scientists accusing the government or researchers of manipulating temperature data to show warming. There's no cooking the books, she said; nature is broadcasting a clear signal about climate change.


And the Arctic ice sheet is thinning, and it's maximum and minimum areas are shrinking

And the glaciers and snow caps are shrinking .... much of which feeds the great rivers during the spring and summer and fall that are used for irrigation ...
