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.

WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE/????????? RECORD LOW TORNADO RECORD LOW HURRICANES

While many climate alarmists still try to tell us that global warming will increase tornadoes, we are in the middle of a tornado drought, and well below normal. Normally we’d see 1221 tornadoes in the USA, so far for 2013, only 716 have been reported. STRIKE TWO

Well heat is energy and what does heat/energy usually do in the atmosphere?

It usually causes adverse weather in one extreme or another.

And all of those things you mentioned can make life difficult for people.

Is there something wrong with fearing those things happen to yourself or being concerned about them?

Its simply true that we can see more adverse weather with a warming planet.

The 2013 Atlantic hurricane season was the least active season so far this century, and among the quietest on record since 1950. SWING AND A MISS.

You are a fool Myth I am grateful that you are in the MINORITY on this issue. If you got what you wanted you would find out too late how you were played.

Climate change will not solely cause an increase in the average surface temperatures across the globe, a phenomenon known as global warming.

In reality, it will cause an increase in both the number and ferocity of •droughts

•dust storms • floods •heat waves

•hurricanes •tropical storms •tornadoes •and wildfires

FEAR RUN OH MY AUNTIE EM

Fear tactics?

What? Like this idea that the left is socialist and that they are trying to make this into socialist utopia?

Thats what you are told Tiredofit and that is what you fear.

Never mind the facts.

And you have bought right into it.

Thats why your position on climate change is so rigid. You will not concede any facts about climate change as being truthful when they are truthful.

Your opinion on this issue is compromised.

Because you can not honestly debate this issue your opinion is irrelevant.

Actually there are more and more conservatives who believe that man has a hand in the warming the world is seeing and action should be taken on climate change.

The only problem is that for the most part those people are never heard because once they take that position they are sidelined and marginalized by their own brethren.

Conservative media won't give it coverage because they aren't allowed to.

The conservative message is owned lock stock and barrel by interests who take great issue with climate change.

And why is that>>? Why are the socialist, Marxists and Unions all pushing this agenda non stop? Social justice????? Wealth redistribution? Its for the children, never mind we are racking up a debt they can never pay, lets be sure its not 1 degree warmer when they go bankrupt.

If co2 caused the to warm then one would expect warming over the last 16 years since they claim that there is more co2 this year than all previous years, surprise NO WARMING huh? What we do have is a desperate LEFT trying to push a socialist agenda by fear tactics that work on the colossally stupid.

@Ithink- it would be nicer if all politicians could do their jobs without costing so much or polluting so much but it really can't be helped.

I am pretty sure the next conservative Prez will be polluting and costing the US as much as Obama.

Posted 136 days ago.

You all should be preaching to the jet flying abusing obamas and Holder. We pay billiions to send them all over the world again and again, doing their poluting. Why is she in China? Did you see the unbelievable amount we paid for him to go to Brussels for one night ?

The obamas cost us 1.4 BILLION dollars in the last year while they were poluting the earth.

And Holder uses gov planes for private travelling all the time. They are the ones making the dirt you talk about.

I am a conservative, and I conserve.

Those people love to say man doesn't have the power to affect the climate of this world.

Well have they ever looked and seen all the roads that criss cross this planet? And not just the ones on the ground but the routes airplanes take.

And the whole entire time their engines are running they are spewing out Co2.

Its the cummulative effect of mankind that gives mankind the ability to affect the climate of this world.

And when the reasoning behind all the comments that are arrayed against global warming are boiled down to their basic motivation what do we find?

Its a political or ideological disagreement that causes them to take the position they do.

Supporting their cause is more important than the facts.

I have the intellect to understand that taking billions of tons of carbon in the ground and releasing it into the atmosphere is going to cause changes to our atmosphere.

I understand that the burning of carbon based fuels releases co2. Co2 is a heat trapping gas.

Trapping heat on the earth is going to do what?

Warm it up! WOW!

That is basic science.

Anyone that denies that either knows nothing about science or is denying it because of political and ideological reasons.

The my teachers said that it was strange that I was good at science and had issues with math because they usually go hand in hand. When you are good at one you are good at the other.

My issue is that I can't keep numbers in my head as I am doing math problems. Numbers easily fall out of memory or get jumbled up.

I honestly have no idea why that is.

But I guess having that kind of handicap makes my opinion worthless right?

Only to scumbags. Because only a scumbag would take an honest admission of a fault from someone and use it against them.

@Thats- could you explain how your firm grip on math has allowed you to come to the conclusion that man is not contributing to global warming but that something else is the deciding factor?

Posted 136 days ago.

Kendall78

Quite easy actually, it's like someone being good at literature but not that great in english. They are not the same thing.

One doesn't have to figure out the mathematical equations to appreciate what a comet is. One doesn't have to figure out the math involving the carbon cycle to understand we have more carbon in the air than anytime in the last 5,000 years.

Posted 136 days ago.

Thatsabsurd

LOL HOW can anyone be good at science but bad at math??????????

Liking something and enjoying the conclusions is different than having the intellect to understand the process.............now we understand why you are duped into believing global Warming
