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.

To further elaborate on what I said I think one should consider this.

Money to be had by catering to a specific demographic.

Given the amount of stuff put forth by "news" outlets like Fox I have to call in to question what they say.

Some of what they say is bordering on insane. And I have to question whether or not the people who report this news and put out the commentary we see on Fox actually agrees with it. And when you consider the extremely partisan bent of most of it...it just strikes me as being rather tailored to fit perfectly a targeted mindset.

The game of individuals like that is to by design...deny and question every single detail.

I have serious reservations about them even believing what they say themselves.

I think they are just taking orders.

Then Gutfeld and Bolling kept going on about how the temps haven't went up steadily as the CO2 has, though ignoring the fact that the previous 16 years was hotter on average than the previous hundred. This isn't a simple tit for tat. Only the ignorant would think that.

Beckel pointed out that there have been exaggerations by some scientists and that is true. The ladies pointed out some of the politics that is involved in the debate. But Gutfeld and Bolling were every bit the ignorant Far Right stereotype.

Thank goodness Andrea is pleasant to look at because The Five was so annoying today. Beckel produced a graph that NASA produced about the increase in CO2 and that idiot Gutfeld couldn't get it through his head that not every rise in CO2 was due to humanity. He just kept laughing like an idiot. Gutfeld did get him to stop for a moment by declaring it was NASA that came up with the info. He wouldn't dare say anything against NASA though the coward.

The Navy's Seawater-To-Fuel System: Can I Use It In My Car?

Google that thar headline and read it.

Anyone want to make bets on long its going to take Republicans to deep six that research because its a "waste of taxpayer money"?

Probably not long before the oil company lobbyists pay off some "representatives" and have it stopped.

"Greece has become a nation on the verge of insolvency, was that due to their enlightened ways?"

I will assume that you missed the word "ancient" in my statement because if you think ancient Greece and modern day Greece are the same....then history class failed you horribly.

Greece has become a nation on the verge of insolvency, was that due to their enlightened ways? Do all the sheep out your way mournfuly bleat "Keeeenie, Keeeennie" because you slipped and slid down a slope?? Is your reply to them "There will never be another ewe?" You do know that sheep lie and you can't trust a word they say.

Good answer Harry. Do you still do the knitting needle through the arm trick or are those memories just too painful?

Of course I wield power. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. He who is in me is greater than he who is in the world.

That's called a slippery slope argument. There is no correleation between sexual relations with the same gender and sexual relations with different species. Just look at history to teach you. Did Ancient Greece slip into a culture that has sexual relations with animals just because they had same gender relationships? No..they did not.

I guess, myth,it is logical to expect that one deviant behavior might follow another deviation from normal.

Just what powers do you wield, Sir Harry? "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, The courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference." Good luck in your endeavors, but beware, some windmills tilt back. Me, I'm going to watch closely the efforts of Cabot's WC-1 and hope for many more so some lives can be changed for the better.

"no one can do anything about except remove themselves from the world and stop emitting the dreaded CO2"

I'm sure glad I don't feel powerless.

Yea it always puzzled me that when someone speaks of homosexuals being allowed to marry there is always a conservative that will bring up human animal sexaul realations being the next "thing" that people will want a right to.

Kinda makes a person wonder what lurks beneath the surface of people who think like that.

"that no one can do anything about except remove themselves from the world and stop emitting the dreaded CO2"

Why do people go to such absurd extremes? Not one person on here has expressed that CO2 is all bad. Would your response to a person worrying about people drowning be that we need to get rid of all water on the planet then?

Opinionated people tend to give out their opinions.

Hey! Who woulda thought?

Amazing that the N&S still does not allow comments even though you must pay to read the articles. In the meanwhile the forum has been reduced to a single thread with a love fest of three or four lost souls that can't see what's happening before their very eyes. 127 pages of posts on a subject that no one can do anything about except remove themselves from the world and stop emitting the dreaded CO2. So long, Tired, you fought the good fight. Adieu.

"Oh and be sure to write declarative self serving texts about how you won.."

How cute, Tired makes it out like we could win something. How could we win something when you haven't even arrived to compete in this adult game called debate. I guess one could say we won by forfeit since you never have yet defended your position in any reasonable manner.
