There can’t be a single national leader willing to keep denying that global warming is real, can there?

Yes, there can. He’s the Republican Party nominee for President. He calls global warming a “hoax.”

And nearly half of Americans are planning on voting for him.

    Americans who are voting for Trump are voting for a man who is either stupid enough or arrogant enough to say that the thermometers are all wrong. There’s no excuse for this.

    That is data only stating air temperature since 1880. I consider myself skeptical of all things. In order to appease my own curiosity, I wondered if there was a way to get temperature data from before 1880. The GISP2 ice cores do a decent enough job. Thankfully, that dataset is available from the same source you cited.
    What does column 5 say about temperature relative to present over the last 3 million years?

      It says that in the history of the Earth there have been are other sources of global temperature than human beings, which no one disputes.

    Unless you have a workable global solution to this theoretical problem, stop bringing it up. Global warming is a theory. Living in Mississippi, I can attest that the heat is fucking unbearable just like it always has been. Both my grandfather and great grandmother say the same(just without the explitives).
