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.

Stillhere, you posted,

"Yet the Nasa press release failed to mention this, as well as the fact that the alleged ‘record’ amounted to an increase over 2010, the previous ‘warmest year’, of just two-hundredths of a degree – or 0.02C. The margin of error is said by scientists to be approximately 0.1C – several times as much."

I'd like to check this out. I'm sure those aren't your words. From where did you lift that quote?

She said MIGHT, that's true but does the fact that she seems to justify it not a cause for concern for you?

62% chance they are dead wrong by their OWN admission.

When a govt agency official ADMITS to exaggeration to garner funding, one would think a rational person would perk up a little.

Monica is talking funding.She said"might".Maybe there was deception,maybe not. The point is,the authors stand by their word.There were fluctuations in temperatures all over the earth. There were many different instruments measuring land, water, and atmosphere, in muchos locations.The average was a small change, as one would expect. However, it is a fact,that it doesn't take much chage in land temperature,or rainfall or the warming or cooling of oceans currents to affect the behaviors of organisms.I don't trust 'big business'

Lets take a look at what Monika Kopacz the head of the NOAA climate project has to say

It is no secret that a lot of climate-change research is subject to opinion, that climate models sometimes disagree even on the signs of the future changes (e.g. drier vs. wetter future climate). The problem is, only sensational exaggeration makes the kind of story that will get politicians' - and readers' - attention. So, yes, climate scientists might exaggerate, but in today's world, this is the only way to assure any political action and thus more federal financing to reduce the scientific uncertainty
