"It's amusing that you consider my Boreme comments part of academia." I don't. They are full of flaws.
For example, just in your last comment: "Earlier I said "He believ...

Please stop, you're giving academia a bad name. Even your latest response alone is full of inaccuracies.

I just wanted you to confirm that what you said is what you meant. So, let's break it down. "He believes that the planet's warming is ... he needed to check if you accepted the premise; that w...

You sound confused to me. Agreeing on the definition of a term is so communication is more effective. If you define "ice age" as when the planet is covered by 90% ice, and I define it as when the plan...

You are confused. A definition is not the same as a consensus. The definition of "ice age" seems to be very vague. For example, Wikipedia says: "An ice age is a long period of reduction in ...

About 10% of the Earth is covered in ice. Apparently, that is still defined as within an ice age. It's just a mild part of an ice age. It's a bit like having a warm day in winter - it's still winter ...

I was quite surprised when I looked up the definition of "ice age", that it was so vague. I was expecting something like - an ice age is defined as when 50% or more of the land is covered by ice all y...

Now I'm confused. Which ice age are you talking about? In your earlier post, all that stuff about 1850 - 1950 concerns the Little Ice Age that started around 1600. But the 25C stuff you keep going on ...

OK, so just to update your position: global warming is partly caused by human activity, and partly "the act of coming out of the Little Ice Age". Is that fair?

He's playing semantics. Technically we're in an ice age because of how ice age is defined. 
"By definition we are still in the last great ice age – which began during the late Pliocene epoch...

I just agreed we are in an ice age. I can read Wikipedia as well.
So how do you come to the conclusion that part of the warming is due to "the act of coming out of our ice age"? Is this your pe...

Yes, we are in an ice age.
So how do you come to the conclusion that part of the warming is due to "the act of coming out of our ice age"? Is this your personal theory? Or are ...

I don't want to get distracted talking about ice ages when today's climate change has nothing to do with ice ages. And we've been through this a gazillion times before. Don't you remember?
