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.

Okay. So do you accept my first piece of evidence?

Do you believe CO2 is a greenhouse gas?

"You want to make the case that Co2 is a greenhouse gas, man burns fossil fuels, fossil fuels emit Co2, the planet has warmed since the last ice age, therefore man causes global warming. THAT SUM IT UP"

You invited me to "make your case." So stop interrupting while I do so.

My case is that CO2 is a greenhouse gas. Do you accept that? If not, why not?

Scientists make a statement that doesn't jive with you. Oh well must be the funding that made them say that.

Any proof thats the case? Nah you just assume thats the case.

mythravere

Yes yes yes. Its all about the funding. But can you prove that money has had an influence on what scientists are saying about mans role in climate change.

You ONLY go with the option that supports your opinion on this issue.

There's always something ! An endless supply of denial because tiredbrain just cant stand to be wrong ! LOLOLOL!!

Ole numbnuts wont even acknowledge this independant study because it refutes everything it says ~~~~The dependence on fossil fuel energy sources since the industrial revolution has undoubtedly shaped economic prosperity for the developed world. However, an unfortunate by-product of fossil fuel combustion is the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), an important greenhouse gas that is known to influence long-term climatic variations through its ability to absorb infra-red radiation.

Human emissions of CO2 have resulted in atmospheric levels higher than any period over the last 20 million years. The continued emission of CO2 will lead to widespread climate change related impacts. ~~Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) UNSW Australia, Sydney NSW 2052 Australia All I advocate is there IS research that says man has and will have a role in climate change !

I googled your post, Tiredofit, and found an article on an obscure website by O R Adams, Jr.

Me. Adams isn't a climate scientist. He appears to be known best for writing a book called "As We Sodomize America."

Again myth and Kendall have been proven correct, Tiredofit--you aren't interested in considering scientic evidence.

The score so far. Six climate scientists say CO 2 is a greenhouse gas. We haven't yet found one who denies it.

Here we go with the liar and denier !

Thanks, ohwiseone.

Dr. Laurie Menziel, the lead researcher at CCRC, has authored or coauthored over a dozen papers.

That's 6-0.

Proof from another 4 climate scientists.

"Ample physical evidence shows that carbon dioxide (CO2) is the single most important climate-relevant greenhouse gas in Earth's atmosphere."

htt p://pubs.giss.nasa.gov/abs/la09300d.html

So that's 5 climate scientists testifying that CO2 is a greenhouse gas, as opposed to none who say it isn't.

That's funny, Kendall.

I see things haven't changed too much the last few days here. Tired still isn't changing anyone's mind or even representing his own mind that well.

And you revert to the same thing every time "the scientific debate is of enormous frustration" You always go to the ad hominem.

harryanderson

Again, I don't have to defend a claim I didn't make. My claim involved CO2 being a greenhouse gas. Nothing else.

harryanderson

Which of his judgments do you believe?

Posted 41 days ago.

harryanderson

Myth pegged you, and you've just proved it again.

And you like to question his intelligence.

That's rich.

Posted 41 days ago.

harryanderson

And I proved myth's point. You won't accept any science that contradicts your political views. Myth saw through you.

Posted 41 days ago.

harryanderson

And no, I don't accept all of Dr. Lindzen's views. Some are too controversial. But among climate scientists, there is no controversy about whether or not CO2 is a greenhouse gas. I don't know of any climate scientist who denies that CO2 is a greenhouse gas.

harryanderson

Actually, Tiredofit, I proved what I set out to prove--that you wouldn't accept the word of any climate scientists, not even the skeptical ones. Of course, that was obvious, since you said "it's not a scientific discussion."
