    Says the one going full insult troll now, because he got taken off-script.

    What other lies about what I or Obama supposedly said would you like to add? If you going to lie, then lie big or go home. At least that's entertaining. Pouty trolling isn't.
    You are proving to be someone who should just be patted on the head and dismissed as you would a six year old.

    As they won't discuss the science, this has morphed from the science to a discussion of personality disorders displayed by denier cultists.

    I'm seeing a lot of histrionic personality disorder, the need to be the center of attention.

    I'm seeing a lot of narcissism, based on the cultists declaring how they're far smarter than the world experts on the subject matter, and based on their inability to admit any sort of error, ever, no matter how small.

    I'm seeing obvious paranoia, the claim that the world is secretly plotting against them.

    There's definitely some antisocial personality disorder there, based on their inability to play nice with others.

    A few of the cultists are schizotypal (just plain nuts). And a few are sociopaths, based on their pubic desire to see mass death.

    So far I've only pointed out your inconsistencies and God like worship for Obama. If you want, I'll show you "troll mode".

    Your premise and your conclusion aren't related in any way. Do you understand that? I mean, I understand that somehow, you might think what you're saying makes some kind of sense, but it doesn't.

    It's hard to believe. He's a mirror troll:
    As everyone here knows, that's your form of abject groveling surrender. Whenever you've been absolutely destroyed on a topic, you reflexively start weeping "WAAAH! TROLL!", because you think it gives you an excuse to run.

    So, I need to go carve another notch.

    I made nothing up. Now you're just repeating yourself.

    I used to to think that you were kind of smart. I was wrong.

    What I said was logical. You claimed whatever the actual climate it is ideal. I'm sure that escapes you.

    As for the rest, hold it up to a mirror.

    This is from an article at the nationalgeographic.com.

    A NEW STUDY warns that Greenlandís ice is melting faster than scientists previously thought. But perhaps the biggest surprise is that most of this ice loss is from the land-fast ice sheet itself, not Greenlandís glaciers.

    The new study, published January 21 in the
    Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that the largest sustained ice loss from early 2003 to mid-2013 came from Greenland's southwest region, which is mostly devoid of large glaciers.

    https://www.nationalgeographic.com/e...ing-sea-level/

    All it takes to melt Greenlandís ice sheet is a surface temperature of 1 C and sunlight. ďIt used to be rare to get temperatures above 0 degrees on the ice sheet, but no longer,Ē Bevis said. And each degree above 1 C doubles the amount of ice melt.

    What happens next?


    Without acting soon to dramatically reduce the burning of fossil fuels that is raising global temperatures, most or all of Greenlandís ice could melt, raising sea levels 23 feet, warns Richard Alley, a glaciologist at Penn State. This would occur on a time scale of centuries. However, there is a warming threshold that could be crossed in a few decades or less and, if exceeded long enough, the meltdown of Greenland would be irreversible, said Alley.
