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 fraud speaks. The supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years.

The figures suggest that we could even be heading for a mini ice age to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames in the 17th Century.

Based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations, the data was issued last week without fanfare by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. It confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997.

Those who claim there has been no warming in 16 years either don't use elementary statistical analysis.

Politifact rated Patrick Moore’s statement that “the earth has not warmed in 17 years” and found it “mostly false.”

ww w.politifact.co m/punditfact/statements/2014/mar/17/patrick-moore/climate-change-skeptic-patrick-moore-says-earth-ha/

For at least 3 reasons, Tiredofit’s statement isn’t true. First, 1998 was an outlier year with a strong El Nino. In discussing trends, statisticians who want to be truthful don’t pick outliers for the baseline. Second, both 2005 and 2010 were warmer than 1998. Third, the first decade of the 20th century was the warmest on record.

Those who feel frustrated in arguments often employ pejoratives like “imbecile” and “short bus” and “fool.” Frankly, it reveals more about their characters than the characters of those whom they disparage.

I almost pity you Myth, if not for your arrogant ignorance I would.. What you fail to understand is that GOD is in charge of all things including the climate of the earth, not Govt nor man. Sad that you search for answers in the wrong place.

"So you admit you don't have the first clue and no one can say what will happen yet you want action????"

Never admitted anything.

I don't want action. There's nothing we can do about it in my opinion except be flexible and adapt accordingly.

It's a nice day. Go out and enjoy it before the weather changes to rain, or snow, or not. Reduction of co2 will inherently cause an upward shift in the cost of energy across the spectrum. This increased cot will result in reduction of power used because people that are not subsidized by the government will use less. The poor folk won't change their usage as the taxpayer helps with their bills, the rich won't use less because they can afford to pay. But, once again, we in the middle will be squeezed by the increase and tough decisions we will have to make. Unless you are not rich or poor you don't have a dog in this hunt. Go out and breath some fresh air before your neighbor exhales and pollutes some more.

Two decades ago the northern ice cap was a lot more widespread.

So much so that no routes were being looked at as possible seasonal shipping routes for commerce.

So much so that neither the USA or Russia seen it as necessary to start laying claim to areas for resource extraction under the waters the normally would have had ice flows over it.

Yep no warming in two decades.

Then why is the ice thinning out and routes opening up?
