    As much as I enjoy talking about myself, it would be good if we could keep this thread on topic rather than continuously discuss....... me.

    'Global warming' or 'climate change' as it is now know due to the inconvenient lack of warming should be about the science.

    If the science is so settled, I would have thought it would be relatively easily to discuss the science against me.
    With few exceptions, most of the posts from others have been void of any facts at all. Just the general feel that - 'the scientists say its right, so I must believe them'.
    As I have said many times, it only takes one scientist to prove the rest wrong. Science is about evidence, not votes.

    One question.
    If the science is settled, how much is the Earth expected to increase by 2100?

    I would have though you would be able to explain a simple statement to a layman. Clearly not.
    Clearly not this layman.

    It is easy. I've posted heaps regarding scientists conclusions on global warming and climate change. You just ignore it all. Why are your graphs any better than my links? Why are you always right and we're all wrong?

    2-11.5F depending on future greenhouse gas emissions. Since we can't know exactly how much we'll emit we can obviously only give predictions.

    Plant and animal species will be at the brink of extinction if temps increase by 1.5-2.5C.

    That is quite a wide range. I understand that they are only predictions.

    I'll rephrase the question.

    The 'business as usual' scenario that the IPCC refers to will result in what expected temperature increase by 2100 in degrees C?

    So a 1.4 degree increase would be ok?

    And asking questions as to why you are right and continually ignore anything we say or post is valid in this debate. If you're going to keep telling people that everything they are saying is wrong then you need to be able to answer what makes you right and so confident in ignoring anything the rest of us say.

    Of course it's a wide range!!! You don't know how much we'll decrease our emissions! Why is that such a hard concept to grasp?!

    Why don't you tell us your answer to your question.
