@87 verbal diarrhea ad infinitum

You are a fraud

@84 "you want to cherry-pick a few studies and ignore the rest"

Several major studies showing that EPA is underestimating methane emissions by up to an order of magnitude warrant a lot more than your "nothing to see here", especially when it was claimed that it would be cleaner to burn NG than burning coal. You are a deceitful fraud and your repeating ad-infinitum the same obfuscating tangents won't change any of it.

"Mass is perfectly justified in his refusal to blame individual events on climate change"

Ignoring what I said for the nth time may be very convenient for you but it isn't very honest for anyone trying to have a discussion. Mass isn't justified at all in is trying to pin every extreme climate events on natural variability and his not mentioning systematically that extreme climatic events are consistent with how we expect climate to evolve.

@79 It's YOUR choice to behave like some unhinged MF when people get something wrong. Nobody else.

You were provided with enough evidence about fugitive methane emissions and EPA misconduct, that any scientist worth his salt would have asked for some kind of investigation to clear it up. Instead you chose to deny everything like a climate change denier would do. This a rather conclusive observation in my book because it shows that you are not really interested in preventing more dangerous GHG emissions. As I said if you were actually competent on this topic, your response would amount to malfeasance.

Again you are trying to obfuscate what Cliff Mass really does. Mass tries to pin everything on natural variability and tries to disappear that although any particular event cannot be attributed to climate change, these extreme events are consistent with how we expect the climate to change. Waving one's arm to claim that megafires are due to natural variability is NOT evidence, it's politicking to minimize the effects of climate change in order to better argue for business as usual, like you do.

@76 "Bakken and Eagle Ford produce 4/5ths of America's shale gas and oil?"

I acknowledged that i was mistaken after you pointed out my error. Insisting that I lied does suggest that you have some issues.

"Locally increasing methane emissions prove that nationwide methane emissions are rising?"

You were given a reference that showed methane emissions have been rising for 15 years (Turner et al) as well as a slew of other studies showing that plays with high drilling frequency have emissions several fold to an order of magnitude higher than industry data used by the EPA. Evidence that the EPA has knowingly sampled emissions with faulty technology that severely underestimated said emissions. You dismissed it all out of hand. If you were an actual expert, rather than a blowhard on the internet, your reaction would probably amount to some kind of malfeasance.

Your agreeing with Cliff Mass in his misrepresentation of how extreme climatic events are related to climate change says all that we need to know about how much you want us to mitigate climate change effectively. Until you start acting in a way that doesn't minimize the effects of climate change, I am afraid that your rhetoric about "alarmists" is rather self serving

@73 rather than seize on the rare opportunity to discuss how future human beings will have to deal with sea level rise because of our burning fossil fuels, you decided to focus on Stein using an extreme estimate of future SLR. Is it really all that you can bring to the table?

@73 "Caught in your lie"

Have you talked to your shrink about liars?

@71 rounding off isn't "blatant misrepresentation" when the uncertainty in the finding is significantly larger than the error introduced by rounding off, which is the case here in spite of your obfuscation viz "error bars". Only someone who has no idea about unstable marine based ice sheets would think that a 5 year difference in the timing of projected SLR benchmarks is meaningful within the context of continued GHG emissions. It is already possible that anything we do cannot stop the disintegration of West Antarctica over century-millennia time scales, but we sure can speed it up with unchecked methane emissions among other possibilities.

I wouldn't have said what Stein wanted to express in the fashion she did but I doubt it is possible on tweeter. I would have put it in the context of the state of the science but I don't believe anything she said was factually incorrect according to what we know. The probability of a multi meter sea level rise by mid-century is very low but I assume it is finite with heavy consequences for human societies and consequently cannot be ignored the way you do. Stein was correct to bring it up.

@69 If you are looking for something spinning, I'd talk to the guy who claims seriously that "saying 2050 to mean 2055 is just blatant misrepresentation".
