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.

Why do you keep saying" appeal to authority"? Do you understand the phrase at all? What the heck do you think you are appealing to? You do t have one piece of information that an "authority" spoonfed you and says is true.

"US spends over $7 billion in 3 years helping other countries deal with climate change"

So?

Writing of Daniel Greenfield? Nothing but an appeal to authority. Not really an authority even.

Google? Not evidence.

As for the "hide the decline" stuff, I would recommend for your consideration this site for what it is worth: w w w.skepticalscience.c om/Mikes-Nature-trick-hide-the-decline.h tm

"Enjoy your global warming"

I won't be enjoying the cold weather tonight...that is for sure. But I am quite sure we all will not be enjoying the global warming of our planet.

"because mann blamed dem evil oil companies."

I find this very funny considering you tried to imply money was a reason for those saying climate change is man made.

"the emails redefining peer review"

Cute, but the emails have nothing to do with the peer review I cited that you haven't read yet.

"Believe as you like."

I do but unlike you it would seem my position is based more on fact than yours.

I am guessing you cannot answer the simple yes or no question I asked? Or is it you will not?

You don't find any issues with the emails redefining peer review, hiding declines, bad data, it all ok because mann blamed dem evil oil companies. Remarkably ignorant.

"Why all the insults?"

There have been no insults. If you willfully ignore facts, you are therefor ignorant. If you commit fallacies in your arguments, it can be claimed you are participating in shoddy research.

"Can you prove that the emails dont demonstrate fraud"

Can't prove a negative there chief. Nice try. Btw, you didn't answer my question. Was your answer a yes or no?

Notice how nasty you are behaving? Why all the insults? Wow you are full of anger and hate. Why do you worry about what I believe?

"You guys really hate people that don't buy into this garbage. Myth compared me to nazis yesterday now you compare me to a halocaust denier."

Lie if it makes you feel better but I did not compare you to a holocaust denier. I comapred you method to theirs.

It is more than a little humorous that you don't show how I am wrong in this, you just show that you are offended. Oh well.

And I don't hate you at all. I just don't care for shoddy research and the way you cling to ignorance on the topic.

Can you prove that the emails dont demonstrate fraud. Yes. Or No

"Yet you chose the holocaust randomly"

Nothing random about it. Holocaust denial is a very well known example of bad debating practice. The methods used there are very comparable to how climate change deniers use. You are just playing offended drama queen card because you are focused on the wrong thing.

What is peer review? You wouldn't called the published works of actual climate change scientsist that are looked over by other climate scientists as being reviewed by peers? I provide the link, take the time to read it if you are capable.

I don't dismiss the cherry picked emails with little or no context. They simply do not counter the evidence available.

Again, when you can provide hundreds of climate scientists that say man isn't involved in claimate change...then you will be doing good.

Can you do this? YES or NO.

Yet you chose the holocaust randomly, sure

"That's the second time I have been compared to Nazis who put people in ovens"

Careful drama queen, I never compared you to the Nazi. I simply compared your habits as a denier to those that deny the holocaust.

Like you, they tend to deny everything they do not like, provide little to no evidence and commit appeal to authority quite often.
