A denier answering the question said AGW realists "just want to force others to do things that they are even willing to do." Another said realists don't "practice what they preach."

Update: Karen - go take your own advice and learn a little physics before lecturing people who know more than you about climate science, please.

Ouch. Now *that* left a mark!
Update 3: Yo, jimbo, use your brain for once. Karen isn't saying we can't conclude the warming isn't natural (which we can and have concluded, by the way).

You got such a ***** from the fact that somebody tried to give me a 'zinger' than you didn't even bother to read what the zinger was. Neither of you answered the question, by the way.
Update 4: Oh and jim, you claim "We have also had general warming for 300 due to other reasons."

Could you please educate us as to what those "other reasons" are?
