What do you have to have thousands of Puerto Rican refugees move to your town before you believe hurricanes are real?

Please, explain what would constitute "irrefutable proof" of humans influencing the climate.

Which generation?

The ones who need to die off are some of you guys who graduated from high school around 1975-1990 who are the biggest whiners the US has ever seen, folks who refuse responsibility and blame all of your shortcomings on someone or something else.

Of course Hurricanes are real. The not real part is when blow hards say they are caused by man.

Which just shows your own complete ignorance of science, you poor hopelessly ignorant dumbshit.

In the real world, there are no "proofs" in science, only a preponderance of evidence....a fact even high school science students are aware of.

There is no proof in science, but there are mountains of evidence

Objection: There is no proof that CO2 is the cause of current warming.

Answer: There is no “proof” in science — that is a property of mathematics. In science, what matters is the balance of evidence, and theories that can explain that evidence. Where possible, scientists make predictions and design experiments to confirm, modify, or contradict their theories, and must modify these theories as new information comes in.

In the case of anthropogenic global warming, there is a theory (first conceived over 100 years ago) based on well-established laws of physics. It is consistent with mountains of observation and data, both contemporary and historical. It is supported by sophisticated, refined global climate models that can successfully reproduce the climate’s behavior over the last century.

Given the lack of any extra planet Earths and a few really large time machines, it is simply impossible to do any better than this.

Aside: It is usually interesting to ask just what observations or evidence your skeptic would consider “proof” that global warming is caused by rising CO2 levels. Don’t be surprised if you get no answer!

That makes no sense. We're talking climate change, not the weather.

Face it, you've proven nothing!
Hypothesis = A proposal intended to explain certain facts or observations.
In other words, conjecture, until the hypothesis is proven.

Irrefutable = Impossible to deny or disprove.
