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.

I choose not to reveal my real name or where I live. How about you?

"advocate your carbon tax all you want, I wont buy into it."

I'm not advocating it. I'm seeking information.

So what is your objection to a carbon tax in which the revenue is used to reduce other taxes?

What's this about "offsets"? Since you brought it up, how would it work?

"why do you pollute this local forum Harry? You don't live here."

Always have to come back to your favorite subject, eh?

I've come back to play a little more, Tiredofit. Where were we?

Oh, I remember. You brought up the carbon tax issue, and I said I'd give you some time to think about it.

So now, what do you think of a tax on carbon that is 100% percent offset by a cut in business and personal income taxes?

"Why has the warming STOPPED"

It hasn't.

Oh, you forgot to tell us how you define "proof" Tired. You can do it now.

You see I don't feel that your agenda in regards to this issue is the seeking of understanding. Or the dissemination of what you hold to be true.

Because anyone who has a viewpoint that they want others to adopt would be more than willing to show exactly why they are right. And that includes showing the facts that back up their viewpoint.

"Give it your best shot sport, you said you HAD proof but wouldn't give it to ME. lol"

The question is why won't I give it to you.

Its because you will always say that the proof we provide is false even if it is correct and truthful.

That the take away from talking with you on here about this issue.

True or False Tiredofit.

True or false Tiredofit?

You are just on here for a cheap laugh by jerking peoples chains?

Answer these two questions first.

"Is CO2 a leading or lagging indicator? Why has the warming STOPPED and CO2 still rises."

There's a problem with saying that the warming has stopped. Atmospheric warming has plateaued. But its has been discovered that oceanic temperatures are rising. So that being the case stating that the warming has stopped doesn't accurately describe what is really happening in regards to global warming.

Its hard to provide a provable fact to someone who claims it is false regardless of its veracity.

That is the game you play.

"You will always say that the proof we provide is false even if it is correct and truthful."

So Tiredofit do you prescribe to what that statement says.

Yes or No?

Lol Back to your favorite subject, eh Tiredofit?

And that favorite subject is me.

I've thought we should discuss the revenue-neutral carbon tax, but I'm not ready to "advocate it" without more information.

Posted 517 days ago.

harryanderson

That's hilarious. If you won't believe the climate scientists, who are educated experts, why should I expect you to believe me?

harryanderson

"I couldn't care less what you think"

Lol. I've always known that.

I asked what you thought.

harryanderson

To do what to myself?

Posted 517 days ago.

harryanderson

I don't know if I've mentioned a revenue- neutral carbon tax. If I did, it was many moons ago.

I'm confident I haven't, as you say, "advocated" it.

How do you feel about it?
