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.

Kendall have you tried it?

You keep saying you have all this proof but I have not seen a single but of causation, you only show correlation

Kendall78

So instead of trying it, you dismiss it and want others to do it for you?

To what end? Even if someone did it for you, you wouldn't accept the results unless they go into your belief system.

Just admit that you are not open to ideas that do not revolve around your beliefs.

The experiment is built on a false premise, he uses infared light to simulate the sun on a runner ball via a glass container,

Uv (SOME )nor infared will PASS THRU GLASS.

You accept a bill Nye lookalike doing an experiment on you tube as proof??/?? Did you try it????..

Tiredofit

The experiment you are speaking is not possible, you do know glass filter uv right? It's a fake, k you try it and tell me that I am wrong, geez it's on the internet its gotta be true. Lol

Sounds interesting. I'll check that out. Thanks.

Too true. A little off topic but have you ever ventured to The Nizkor Project? It covers the history of Holocaust denial, debates tactics and things of that nature. Pretty interesting.

I do agree that it's impossible to have a rational discussion with someone who refuses to consider valid evidence.

Nevertheless, interacting with such people in public is useful for showing the the mental and emotional processes that lead to different points of view. Like the Bible says, "Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks."

That is: Demonstrable evidence has been presented, and Tiredofit refuses to be swayed by it.

I wouldn't say anybody has their head in the sand. I'm just saying scientists have presented demonstrable evidence, and it refuses to sway Tiredofit.

Out of everything Tired posted, there was only one thing worth quoting out of all the blabber, ad hominems and attempts to look intelligent;

"I don't know"

Yes Tired, we know you do not know. You have no inkling of why it's happening and you are quite comfy cozy in your ignorance.

@Harry- kind of hard to have a rational discussion with a person whose head is in the sand isn't it?

Tiredofit,

There's a world of scientific proof that CO2, added to an environment surrounded by a gas, traps heat from escaping.

You refuse to accept that proof. Mythravere even suggested a simple experiment you could perform at home. You discounted it.

Nothing will ever convince you. Nevertheless, you serve a useful purpose here, and I thank you for your comments.

I appreciate climate change and global warming or we would be under a mile or so of ice. Perhaps you would prefer living like an Eskimo cannot say. Anyways enjoy the wonderful hot day before the rain sets in, I am going to plant my garden and let it turn CO2 into delicious beans and tomatoes. Mmmmm good.

Scientific fact can be demonstrated challanged and proven time after time. This falls quite short of the mark.

Posted 114 days ago.

Tiredofit

Yet in your arrogant mind, you have the answers but I would submit, you have not asked the right questions, and you never will.

Posted 114 days ago.

Tiredofit

It's not up to me to explain why the glaciers melted from where you currently sit, I don't know nor do you, however I do know that climate changed over time on it's own accord. That's a long way from you blaming a non pollutant trace gas whithout a shred of evidence to support it.

Posted 114 days ago.

Tiredofit

Sadly you keep referring to it as science which it clearly is NOT. Correlation does not equal causation and that is where you go astray. There is not a single shred of scientific proof that co2 causes a change in climate. The models are guesses which have failed to come to fruition time and again.

" you might have some credibility."

You mean like offering a scientific alternative to Global Warming other that CO2 emissions?

Well please Tired, offer up something to give yourself some credibility. It would be a nice change of pace for you.
