Skip to comments.Need help disputing this link's accuracy

This was just sent to me by my daughter's 5th grade teacher. I have been going back and forth with her about global warming; obviously she's convinced it's real.
I need ammo from you all here (a bunch of smarty pants when it comes to this stuff:)) so I can go back to her with solid facts disputing this propaganda.
James Delingpole who writes for the UK Telegraph always has good info.
He invented the term “watermelons” for the envirowackos - green on the outside, red on the inside.
” so I can go back to her with solid facts disputing this propaganda. “
You’d have an easier time convincing an Al Qaeda suicide bomber to give up Islam....
What she needs to understand is that the issue of man made global warming is a hoax.
1) How old is the Earth?
2) Does 132 years of temperature data (1880-2012)represent a trend using statistical anaylsis?
3) How did they measure the temperature of the oceans 132 years ago?
reds indicate temperatures higher than the average during a baseline period of 1951-1980, while blues indicate lower temperatures than the baseline average.
Ask yourself why they chose the period they did as a "baseline".
Rush has been calling environmental extremists “watermelons” since the 1990’s. I don’t think Delingpole invented the terminology.
You’re allowing two fallacies in logic.
1) GLOBAL WARMING does NOT equal ANTHROPOGENIC GLOBAL WARMING - CORRELATION IS NOT CAUSATION! Ask her what the solar cycles have been doing in the same time. Is there a feedback mechanism? What’s the water vapor level...iow what are other causes.
2) GLOBAL TREND means GEOLOGICAL TIME - What are the trends over millenia...not decades. Think like a rock not a human when you think about geological time.
That means there were eight years that were even warmer.
Ask her if she can show you any credible scientific proof that CO2 increases cause warming increases. Ask her about the CLIMATEGATE EMAILS and what was behind the HIDE THE DECLINE comment between the scientists. HIDE THE DECLINE was the fraudulent manipulation that the CLIMATEGATE scientists undertook because the termperturs were dropping while CO2 levels were increasing. This was not what these frauds wanted to see to support their POLITICAL CO2 REGULATIONS SCAM ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
My link was to show they were playing with the numbers. But you knew that.
Don't waste your time. Her ammunition is the limitless articles supporting AGW while she doesn't understand one statistic they write other than the conclusion.
Her mindset is such that she feels that mankind not only has the ability to destroy this planet but that we also have the ability to reverse any such damage she claims we are doing........
My suggestion to you is to stop your useless battle with this idiot and also demand that she stop feeding your child with BS.......
Try to find out the actual numbers.
When they declared that 2010 was the warmest year on record since 2005, I found that indeed the “official” number was warmer- 0.015 degrees C. This implies that they know the temperature of the whole earth to five significant digits, and their error bars are less than 0.001 degree.
And try to find the eight years that were warmer.
“Only a fool argues with a fool.” - Chinese proverb.
Tell her to re-read the history of the Earth. It has been here for 5 billion years and gone through hot, cold, wet, dry and everything in between dozens of times before any sort of life form, human or otherwise, was even around to influence its direction. IOW the Earth is a big kid and takes care of itself on a scale humans cannot even fathom.
