#1 What could the Norwegians possibly know about weather impacts ?

#2 If the temperature stopped rising whilst the thing you correlate it with continues rises then it falsifies the whole linkage.
It's not "less severe" it's not a problem at all.

#3 a Norwegian research project show meeting targets for minimizing global warming may be more achievable than previously thought.
Or said another way, this has been the biggest scam since the Piltdown Man, relying on cooked data and manufactured media hysteria. Maybe if we walk it back slowly, no one will notice.
As BP says, if your model does not fix the data, your model sucks. Science 101, folks.

#4 At some point CO2 has absorbed all the electromagnetic energy that it can absorb. It's an invisible gas -- most wavelengths go right through. This is why the 'tipping point' is so important to the climate people. Without it, you can't have a crisis. It's also pure conjecture and the weakest part of their entire argument.

#5 Whew, that's a relief. I thought the sky was falling (sarc).

#7 Cities affect weather thousands of kilometres away
Looks like the hysteria generating Post-normal bien pensants will have to get back to the drawing board.
As Charles Mackay says in his wonderful book Madness of Crowds:
"Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one."

#8 Interesting Tipper. I always called it the flocking effect. One horse bolts then all the others join in on the run. Then again we have Norway at about 1:42 the lemmings mass suicide(all but a few die the conservatives);

#9 Two degrees C by 2050? It is to laugh.

#10 I still can't believe that the The Earth's mean temperature rose sharply during the 1990s.
Heat Island effects and the type of data fudging that brought you the hockey stick were all too common for me to believe in as valid, honest, objective science.

#12 That is right Iblis. If there has been any extra absorption, it has come from (now banned) chlorofluorocarbons which absorb in an otherwise empty window in the electromagnetic spectrum.

#13 Note that there is no mention of Solar activity as an influence on climate cycles.
