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.

Guess 43% of Americans don't believe whatever facts say Clinton isn't trustworthy.

Most Americans are low information and don't know what the facts are to begin with. And of course political oriented lemmings spout off their party's talking points without thinking.

Why is it that the Far Right dismisses the 97% of scientists saying man-made climate change is happening but snatches tight on the poll that says 57% don't trust Hillary?

There are some that at least tries to put some science into their arguments. Not enough nor do they usually offer anything correctly but some do try.

Oh, look. More imitation of what I just said.

You really idolize me, don't you?

Your snarky response still doesn't explain away your friends self- contradictory appraisement of those who are following their faith and when.

People in a church in Charleston, SC who fall victim to the acts of a mad man (Good People).

People in Pennsylvania adhering to their faith to get them through tough economic times (Bad People).

I consider that disparity political opportunism in it's purest form.

Please tell me why I shouldn't believe that, in both cases, Obama wasn't out to strengthen his political standing.

BTW, OHWISEONE ! When you said, "And I said nothing about James Brady so you again need to PAY ATTENTION !"

I did "PAY ATTENTION"! I was fully aware that you were speaking of Brietbart, but as usual you didn't specify whom you were speaking of in response to my mention of James Brady. I couldn't resist the opportunity to demonstrate your ignorance of the use of proper communication...again.

BTW - You could have just terminated that thought with, "And I said NOTHING".

That way, it would have been in keeping with most of which you wish to convey.

"There is something particularly heartbreaking about death happening at A PLACE IN WHICH WE SEEK SOLACE AND WE SEEK PEACE." ~ Barack Obama - in response to the Charleston Shootings, June 18, 2015

"..they cling to guns or RELIGION.." ~Barack Obama - explaining the response of small-town America losing jobs, April 2008

"the guvment gonna take yer guns and BIBLES " ~ ohwiseone - to speak derogatorily of that which he doesn't agree, 12 hours ago

You Libs seem to have a flexible opinion on the application of religion, supporting or opposing it's use to fit your argument at that time.

James Brady was lucky to survive that .22 bullet that transversed his brain.

You really shouldn't poke fun at a dead man's memory, you Lout.

I'll call the James Brady Foundation and let them know they have to quit pushing for initiatives against my gun rights based upon your observation that a dead man's name (Brietbart) must not be used when passing along information following their demise.

Isn't that what you are implying? If not, why not?

"Everything in the world has been been tied to global warming"

That would be the fringe talking

"go to "heck" without govt intervention? Sure sounds like unfounded hype to me"

I'm certain the people in the 1930's would agree with you. Govt shouldn't let hype like environmental disaster or financial disaster make them feel the need to take any kind of control

Posted 384 days ago.

Kendall78

I won't deny there is a faction on each side of the argument that takes it too the extreme but they are the fringe.

Everyday people have reasonable concerns about the environment and want reasonable ways of fixing the problems.

"HYPE really??"

You think their is a mass conspiracy by those wanting more govt control to have scientists across the world to lie.

Yep...you love hype. The more tinfoil for your hat, the better.

"YOU are sayig the world will die if we don't give Govt more power."

Nope...not saying that at all. Even if global warming continues, the world will go on. Now how well will go on for our current civilization, that is what is important.

Personally, I don't want the govt to have too much power. But what do we do when people won't take responsibility for problems, just let it go to heck?

"Those I cite are FAR more educated than you"

The argument isn't about who is more educated but what the science shows.
