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.

“You clowns think you have science on your side”

Sure we have climate science on our side: 97% of climate scientists agree.

Of course, that shouldn’t bother you, since you feel “it’s not a scientific discussion.”

Tiredofit I suppose science is on your side?

Good then share that science!

Yep not gonna happen.

Maybe when you drop your balls finally you'll man up and do it.

Here's the kicker for me. I know the dangers of coal. But I really enjoy the history of coal mining. I love reading about how they do it and how its used. Reading about how coal built many railroads fascinates me.

Heck I even love how coal smells when it burns.

Also there isn't a sweeter sight to me than a coal burning steam locomotive. Gives me goosebumps when I see them.

As U.S. Cleans Its Energy Mix, It Ships Coal Problems Abroad

Google that and go to the National Geographic article.

Take a look at that picture of the coal docks in Norfolk Virginia.

Burning a little bit of coal you say?

Goodness lol!

Ithink do you know how long that has been going on?

A little bit of coal!

@Harry- I was being somewhat sarcastic in my comment. It was directed to Ithink and not you. You just got your comment posted before I got mine up.

I find a lot of people tend to use the "it's not that bad" argument but then they have no idea when something actually become bad enough.

Too true Harry. I just wish that those who use authorities (even credible ones)as evidence would argue what the person said and not use the person's educational background or job as the primary reason to believe them.

Obviously it makes more sense to give a little more credence to climate change scientist who isn't peer reviewed that has a logical and thought out theory than a layman just looking at internet headlines.

I don't know the answer to your last question, Kendall. Experts have found that coal smoke contains substances that harm peoples' health, but I don't know how much a coal smoke a person can breathe without being harmed.

Like I wrote, Kendall we're free to evaluate the credibility of witnesses. I consider those who have published peer-reviewed papers in the field to have the highest expertise.

Another dimension of a witnesses credibility is her or his character.

"a little coal burning is a non event."

How much has to burn to be a lot of coal?

"a little coal burning is a non event."

True, but large-scale burning of coal is harmful.

I would also question the gernalized way we might be looking at expert testimony. Even in the court room, there is the Daubert standard. Merely being an expert without the blessing of one's peers might not make a person's testimony evidence.

Posted 103 days ago.

It is not scientific reality to predict, speculate, guess, or feel, about an unknown future. And what is past has no effect on future unexpected happenings.

In the total picture of the earth and its changes, a little coal burning is a non event.
