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.

And did you note what that figure said about Goddard's claim that the data had been "fudged"?

How is the article biased, Tiredofit. Did you notice the well-known figure in the counter climate change movement to whom the article referred?

"I read it and know that the bias is there"

Sounds like a classic case of truthiness.

Politifact is, in reality, Tampa Bay Times politipinion. Yes, I invented a new word.

"Clearly there is a demonstrable bias there.."

And yet you have not demonstrated such bias anywhere.

That wasn't the article to which I referred. I meant the article about falsifying the temperature record. Did you read it and find bias?

Posted 96 days ago.

Kendall78

"Why, it's a PolitiFact ruling from June, 2012 that calls this very same statement "half true.""

It appears your reading comprehension isn't up to par Tired. Read the whole article and then read the one about the Lie of the Year and you might understand.

Tired, can you prove that the Times is influencing Politicfact?

Yes or No

Can you show that Politicfact behaves in a manner that is not professional?

Yes or No

From what I have seen from you and others, Politifact checks it's sources ans tries to contact those their articles are about. They rate both Conservatives and Liberals with the same scrutiny. If you are able to prove otherwise, please do. Otherwise you have failed to prove your argument.

So have you read the article and found bias in it?

And as far as Politicact being "in the tank for Obama," I don't believe that. Politifact did give him their " lie of the year award." In view of that, how can you claim they're "in the tank" for him?

Kendall78

If you actually did any research Tired, you will see that Politifact has found 54% of Obama stuff as half true, mostly false, false or pants on fire.

That sort of blows your conspiracy theory out doesn't it?

@Harry- it's apparent that he doesn't read much of anything beyond headlines

Apparently you didn't read the article. If you had, you would know what famous skeptic said Goddard was wrong.

"And why shouldn't that source be credible?"

How about you tell us why it should.

harryanderson

Did you read the article, Tiredofit?

Posted 96 days ago.

Kendall78

Tired, you would do yourself a favor if you didn't copy/paste from websites like climatedepot.c om

Also, I tried to find any peer reviewed papers but this Dr. Whitehouse. I couldn't find a single one.

So tell us Tired why he should be trusted but others should not?

And you say there has been no warming? Really? None at all on the planet?

Let's pause for a moment and point out that at least 12 of those 17 years were hottest since we kept such records.

So by deciding to look at the last 17 years (why 17 Tired and not 50?) is deceptive to put it kindly.

Let's say the city of Parkersburg averaged about 10 murders each year till 1997 and spiked up to 100 murders every year. Now let's say it stayed around 100 murders and not go down...would you think there is no problem then Tired? After all, for 17 years it seemed to stablized right?

"I would put ANY of the scientists on those petition up against your level of education, no prob"

I have no doubt you would trust a gynecologist if they had signed a petition you supported.

Kendall78

"have you examined the pedigrees of all of them?"

It would appear you have no idea of their backgrounds....NONE. How surprising.

Posted 97 days ago.

harryanderson

Did you read the Politifact article, Tiredofit?

Posted 97 days ago.

Kendall78

" it is just another opinion."

So when they cite multiple sources and actually clarify politicians positions means nothing to you Tired? It's more than you ever done.
