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.

Thatsabsurd

"Let's pause for a moment and ask you this...what is causing this supposed "plateau" you claim exists? It can't be due to the Sun because the Sun is actually putting out less energy currently than it has in recent time."

This is exactly why its so easy to fool imbeciles with junk science

the sun is putting out less energy. are you that stupid. Where did that come from one of your "self proclaimed" Climate scientists?

@Myth- Tired is a hypocrite.

He won't believe some scientists and uses the excuse that they have an agenda and are govt paid.

But then he will support a faulty notion like the other planets getting warmer from who? Oh, yeah...scientists. Of course these very few scientists (from articles many many years old) never tried to say that what happens on other planets are comparable to Earth.

I've tried to get Tired to tell us why smaller, atmosphereless, oceanless places like Mars or Pluto is comparable to Earth and Tired runs away.

"There has been a plateau in warming over the last 17 years."

And that is factually untrue. Remember while you are posting your angry twitter-like posts that "global" warming means more than just one little area.

Let's pause for a moment and ask you this...what is causing this supposed "plateau" you claim exists? It can't be due to the Sun because the Sun is actually putting out less energy currently than it has in recent time.

"No warming in nearly two decades despite CO2 levels rising, NO cause and effect"

Sorry to tell you this Tired but no one has said that Global Warming is being caused only because of CO2.

"and other planets have seen warming in the recent past."

Show us a scientist that isn't getting govt funding that says this. If you won't believe in the people at NASA when they support man made global warming theory, why do you believe in these other scientists?

I'm sorry to tell you this Tired but no one has said that CO2

Typical blabber from Tired. Maybe he will actually defend or support one of his inane theories.

I have made no false assumptions. After you first defend your position on how Earth's climate is comparable to Mars and Pluto...you can cite where I made any.

Otherwise, you are just typing irrelevant nonsense..again.

"would reject inconvenient information"

Perhaps you could cite where I have rejected any information. I bet you can't. ;)

I have acknowledged that there is data. Unlike some people I have also acknowledged that the data is old, sparse and lacking relevance to what is happening on Earth.

Perhaps instead of creating false assumptions about others, you could tell us why you think that the data about Mars and Pluto should be trusted but the data gathered about Earth, from Earth, cannot be trusted?

And of course it is baffling why a person doesn't believe in the data NASA and govt scientists give about Earth's climate while accepting fragmentary data about Mars or Pluto.

Ignoring Tired's attempts at humor and not intellect, here is why it is foolish to try to compare Earth with Mars or Pluto. Tired is more than allowed to participate when his maturity sets in.

1. Earth has oceans where neither Mars or Pluto does not. It's painfully obvious that oceans does effect how our planet obsorbs heat.

2. Earth recieves more of the Sun's energy than Mars or Pluto.

3. The knoweldge of about Earth's climate is vast, while we know so little if virually nothing about Mars and Pluto.

You poor simpleton, you won't answer because you know comparing our planet with Mars and dwarf planet Pluto is foolish and stupid.

Then you try to deflect with your attempts at some out of date left handed insult.

It all comes down to the fact you are a disingenuous and intellectually inept person. You'll ignore and insult Govt agencies and scientists when they say things you do not like but when they give you even a inkling of something you like...then you jump on board the band wagon whooping and hollering like a hillbilly.

And before you cry and whine about me insulting you or whatever, I'm not at all. Everything I have described you as is accurate to how you have portrayed yourself on here. So please don't play the wounded troll...you are not very good at it.

Good to hear that you can keep up, then it won't be a bother for you to answer why you think the Earth and its climate is comparable to Mars and Pluto.

And why do you trust the govt to tell you what the climate is on Mars and Pluto but not on this planet?

Now show us you understand.

Posted 82 days ago.

Kendall78

Tired...were the questions I asked too complex for you? I could simplify them if you need it.

Posted 82 days ago.

Kendall78

Do you trust the govt to tell you what the climate is on Mars and Pluto but not on this planet? Why?

Posted 83 days ago.

Kendall78

And why the Earth is comparable to Mars and Pluto couldn't be clearer.

Earth is larger that either Mars or Pluto.

It's orbit is much shorter than either Mars or Pluto.

We have not even witness an entire orbit of Pluto yet, so we don't even know what a Plutonian year would look like.

So again I ask, why do you think Earth is comparable to the planet Mars and dwarf planet Pluto?

Posted 83 days ago.

Kendall78

Your seem to believe very old news stories that Mars and Pluto are warming up with very little data as to why or even if there is a warm up.

However you do not believe the data from thousands of sources saying that the Earth is warming up faster in the last 50 years than the previous time period and the reasons why it is warming up.

Explain why this isn't hypocrisy?

"as you dont try to insult me"

I spoke the truth, how is that an insult?

"Of course the earth has warmed since the last ice age"

Deflection...try again.

"I cannot keep pointing out the obvious to you."

You point out the obvious that no one is talking about. Try addressing the questions I actually ask and not the ones you create in your own head.

"Walk outside your trailer and tell me if you see a mile thick ice sheet"

More deflection.

I am also curious if you will admit you are a hypocrite.

You won't believe NASA when they say the Earth is getting warmer but you do if they say Mars and Pluto is.

Posted 83 days ago.

Kendall78

I dare say you are a liar Tired because I have not denied that the available data could (note the word...COULD) show an increase of temps.

However, what you fail to understand was my question on how you can say that Mars and Pluto are comparable to Earth. Please try it again if you can.

Now read this carefully, I know you have diffculties with reading comprehension, why is it that you won't believe the Earth is getting warmer with literally thousands of thermometers giving raw data to support that but yet you believe data from four rovers and one satellite?

Posted 83 days ago.

Kendall78

Please try to explain how Mars and Pluto are the equivelent to Earth?

The sizes/mass are not the same.

The atmopsheres are not the same.

The energy they get from the Sun is not the same.

Reflactive quality isn't the same.

The collective knowledge of climate patterns on the planets are not the same.
