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.

Myth and Kendall,

You are 100% correct. Tiredofit will never accept the testimony of climate scientists unless they agree with his political and cultural worldview. He's made that clear. After all, he has said that it's a political debate, not a scientific debate.

And if anonymous internet posters want to be considered more credible than the world's most-published experts, then let those posters list their credentials. What is their academic background? What have they published, and where?

The most-published and most-peer-reviewed climate scientists are the most credible experts out there, and several studies have shown that 97% of them accept the consensus opinion.

According to this scientist, the heat is going into the oceans.

I still say climate scientists have more credibility than others on this subject, and I don't believe they lie to get government funding, and I don't believe all these climate scientists are twisting their findings to institute some kind of socialist government.

Kendall posted a statement from someone with expertise on the subject. Not Charles Krauthammer, not John Cook, not an anonymous internet poster.

A scientist. Kendall posted, "'The climate system is not linear, it is not straightforward. It is not necessarily reflected in the temperature in the atmosphere, but if you look at the temperature profile in the ocean, the heat is going in the oceans,' said Oksana Tarasova, chief of the atmospheric research division at the WMO."

Tiredofit, I asked, "For example, if your activities cause someone to suffer breathing problems, should you be held liable?"

I understood you to answer, "Not necessarily."

Under what circumstances should you not be liable for causing someone else's breathing problems?

"By your logic, peanut growers would bear the medical costs of those with peanut allergies, dog owners for those with pet allergies."

Wrong. Peanut growers and dog owners don't CAUSE allergies.

"But some profit more, like you."

Wherever did you get that idea? Perhaps you need to look up the definition of "vested interests."

In law, a "vested" interest is a right or title that can be conveyed to another.

I didn't say I profited more than others.

Did I state anything that was untrue? Oh yeah !!! Either way you want it tirebrain ! If you were truly a "shop steward" your representation would have been grounds for dismissal and then theres the other side of it ! You're probably just another republican liar who claims to be a steward from a Canadian union and wouldn't know the truth if it bit it on the arse !

Tiredofit I bet you're just a cranky old man set in his ways thats so politicized you think a commie is around every corner.

Why do you even post about this issue. You not trying to change anyones mind? So why do it.

If you wanted to change minds then you'd have to back up what you say wouldn't you? But thats not how you roll?

The words of the scientists are neutral. Doesn't matter where those words are posted at.

Its not like you would even consider their veracity anyways.

Tiredofit you don't state anything. Thats part of your game plan. All you do is deny deny deny.

And those "pics" from what I could tell in just a quick search are photoshops. Meaning someone made it up. Who? I have no idea.

"Cook is an activist and looks great in his Nazi uniform."

What does this have anything to do with climate change science and data?

Can you show that Cook's views are actually skewed or are you practicing the art of implication without facts again?

(From the BBC) "Concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere between 2012 and 2013 grew at their fastest rate since 1984."

"The WMO's annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin doesn't measure emissions from power station smokestacks but instead records how much of the warming gases remain in the atmosphere after the complex interactions that take place between the air, the land and the oceans."

""The climate system is not linear, it is not straightforward. It is not necessarily reflected in the temperature in the atmosphere, but if you look at the temperature profile in the ocean, the heat is going in the oceans," said Oksana Tarasova, chief of the atmospheric research division at the WMO."

"Was not addressing you Jimmy, pay attention."

Learn to quote and do citations properly then. Any high schooler could do that, so I have hope you might be able to do it as well.

Its a fact the you Tiredofit. No matter what facts are sent your way. No matter how concisely the case is laid out.

You just can not admit its real.

And its all because of the political aspect of this issue.

Its you versus the lefties isn't it?

"The latest propaganda stunt from the Skeptical Science Kidz is underway and it is about as exciting as it is predictable. Every hour, a new opinion is revealed along with a cartoon climate scientist caricature drawn by former cartoonist turned “climate expert” John Cook."

So with this I must assume that you didn't bother to see whats being said but rather decided to appeal to your chosen authority?

If all you read is what the skeptics say then how are you getting the whole story?

I expected this much.

I didn't post anything about 97% of anything. Pay attention.

Just wanted to put something a little more relevant to the topic than unions in Canada.
