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 warming would be continuing just as co2 has continued"

It has, you don't pay attention to the oceanic temps do you?

" carbon in any form cannot be scientifically linked to global warming"

Actually it has, you just won't accept it. Please review the dozens of previous pages if you want the evidence. Though you won't or you'll lie about doing it.

If it were, the warming would be continuing just as co2 has continued, yet the temps have levelled off and are actually cooling in many areas.

That's the little fact you always miss, your beliefs don't align with proof.

The poor analogy misses the fact a gun can be scientifically linked to a killing, carbon in any form cannot be scientifically linked to global warming

Let's clear out Tired's silly argument about giving up everything that involves fossil fuels is a logical step to take.

His argument is thus; If one says that carbon is the cause for global warming, they should therefor quit using anything that involves carbon.

That would be like saying, If one believes that guns are the cause for shootings, then they should get rid of all their guns.

Pure foolishness because Tired ignores common sense. No one on here has ever implied that we should (as a species) give up the use of fossil fuels and such, only that we should use them better. Just like it would be dumb to get rid of all guns to prevent shootings, you teach people to use weapons responsibly.

"Be part of the solution, lead by example."

I am...I'm trying to weed out ignorance by asking you questions.

What you seem to fail to grasp is that no one is planning on uprooting our entire society if we do not need to. It took a long time for the Earth to get where it is in the case of global warming. It will take a long time to fix it, so any suggestions to knee jerk action like you imply is foolish.

Only those on the defensive make grand leaps like you have done Tired. Try to think before responding next time. Heck, what I would like to see is you to try and respond to any questions that I have asked of you. It's fun to see you try and dodge them. You look more and more like Obama everyday.

You won't have electricity so no text, mail service uses gasonline, smoke signals are a no go, hmmmmm. Well I guess you'll be dead anyway if you stoped emitting so I will take your word that you will stop.

Let's see...you focus a lot on a place with little children.

You pull off another ad hominem attack and you still have answered no questions directed to you.

Ignoring your fascination with places where little kids are, so it sounds like you admit that CO2 is bad. Otherwise, why would you care to try such a inept debate strategy?

Posted 107 days ago.

Tiredofit

Let me know when that is accomplished.

Posted 107 days ago.

Tiredofit

Be part of the solution Kendall, stop emitting co2.

Are you living by example Kendall? Do you eat meat there at chucky cheese with you little buddies and do you drive a car? Is your house (or mothers basement perhaps) heated with fossil fuels? How can you engage in those earth destroying activities? Lead by example and perhaps you will have some credibility.

Kendall78

Ignoring your fascination with places where little kids are, I have stated facts. You are more than welcome to show how I am incorrect in my statements.

Posted 107 days ago.

Tiredofit

Still no proof just insult tossing from chucky cheese.

"I am always amused at the tolerant left.."

Left or Right, some things should not be tolerated...in this case, your ignorance.

In your four posts this morning, you have offered nothing to counter any of the science that has been offered on here. You write it off as faith while you stick your head in the sand.

Is it faith that the Earth's average temp is higher than it was 100 years ago? Is it faith that it's average is higher than 25 years ago?

Is it faith that we have put more carbon in the atmosphere than the natural carbon cycle can handle?

Sure climate changes without man's involvement but you hope beyond rational hope that man cannot effect it at any level at all.
