Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

The debate is over. Even the oil companies who formerly funded the contrary position now acknowledge that greenhouse gases are causing global warming. Like Tom Zeller writes in Forbes magazine, the politics and culture on this issue are shifting.

And, as I pointed out yesterday, 54% of conservative Republicans are ready to accept the science of global warming and address it.

Some will never accept this change of attitude.

More practical folks, however, have moved on. The API (American Petroleum Institute) 2015 “State of American Energy” report dwells a lot on renewable energy possibilities. That’s significant, since renewable energy threatens the oil industry’s traditional business model. When the API itself comments on the benefits of renewable energy, you know the debate is over. Renewable energy will increase in market share.

I’ve done some research into the warmest years on record, and here’s what I’ve found:

First, we’ll look at land temperatures. 2014, 2010, and 2005 are statistically tied for the warmest years on record. Last year was probably the warmest. Since 1998, we’ve experienced the 15 warmest years on record.

So clearly the land temperature rise continues.

Now, let’s look at ocean temperatures, where 90% of the heat from global warming goes. According to the latest ocean temperature data available, the top 2700 feet of ocean is rising rapidly.

The dataset shows that the earth is warming.

Don't need to Kendall, do your own homework but even your lefty sources admit it, begrudgingly of course. Take a look at the margin of error and you'll see its larger than the claimed increase lol

Shrinking evidence ???? If anything the preponderance of evidence is leaning further towards climate change !Of course if all you do is watch Faux then ....... nuff said !

Kunec- one would need to control ocean temperatures to control "weather",kunec.Dont you agree?

"the EARTH ISNT WARMING,"

Oh, you have proof that it has stayed constant or gone down? Please share.

When you ignore years and years of evidence, there won't be much left.

I guess with the ever shrinking pool of evidence of Global Warming, you have to take what you can get huh?

WASHINGTON, February 11, 2015 – API President and CEO Jack Gerard applauded the bipartisan House passage of legislation to finally approve the Keystone XL pipeline.

Really worried aren't they?

hmmmm don't seem to be too concerned about Canadian oil not do they?

Inconvenient fact Harry, the EARTH ISNT WARMING, but other than that, you have a good point LOL

Even the American Petroleum Institute (API), hardly a bunch of big-government socialists, lists global warming as one of the biggest threats to “America’s future prosperity.”

See the API’s 2015 “State of American Energy” report at

htt p://ww w.api.or g/~/media/files/policy/soae-2015/api-2015-soae-report.pdf

The relevant sentence is at the top of page 17.

"...and the US Military"? That would be the same boys presently playing around with our weather, from Alaska and Puerto Rico, with designs on controlling the world's weather by 2025?

"Please write your Republican representatives in Congress and let them know they’re out of step with their constituents on global warming." REALLY???

That would be the same Congress represented as "A congressionally initiated effort, HAARP is being managed cooperatively by the Air Force and Navy."

SEEMS LIKE A WASTED EFFORT THERE, HARRY! Tell you what. You PROVE that they're not mucking around with the weather and I might take unintended Global Warming a little more seriously.

The sample consists of 5,513 registered voters, 2,330 of whom (37% of the weighted sample of registered voters) identify as Republicans or as Republican-leaning Independents. -

IF the YALE (bastion of liberal thinking) survey consists of self identified Republicans like Harry, I doubt the results are accurate.

Let us recall that HARRY claims to be a local republican of course neither are true, one needs to look no further than his own words for proof of that!
