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.

Its been shown proof and wants none of it !"will lead to widespread climate change "Not maybe , not likely , but will ! So tiredbrain quit asking for research that states that man is causing some part of global warming The questions tiredbrain refuses to answer ! Where does Faux get their "research" ?????? Who funds that ????? Who's agenda are they following ????? And most of all Who's agenda are you following ????This is proof by your silence that your full of crap !

But again I will ask a question that relies on your opinion....what would you consider to be "proof" in this argument?

You won't accept academic findings, govt findings or even business findings. You won't believe personal research on here either.

So what would you consider to be proof?

Tired, are you even able to answer a simple yes or no question with a "yes" or "no"?

I ask because Harry and many other try to bring down the question to your intellectual level but you still go way off tangent.

Do you agree fossil fuel users should pay all the costs associated with using it? It's a simple yes or no question.

And that's something I favor: forcing fossil fuels to pay all the costs associated with their extraction and burning.

harryanderson

Quite right, Tiredofit,

When we start factoring in the external costs of burning fossil fuel, like smog and soot, they will "become less advantageous."

They've enjoyed an unfair advantage that will end in future.

Is Al Gore profiting from Global Warming about like Bernie Madoff profiting from selling securities?

Sure, I owe, Tiredofit,

When I was a kid, I was taught to leave things better than I found them. My generation hasn't done that.

One thing I'm doing is educating people to the dangers we face if we continue on our same course.

What are you doing?

harryanderson

And why is it wrong for Al Gore, who is, after all, a private citizen, to profit from what Tiredofit says is a "most likely" future?

Isn't that how the free market is supposed to work? Those astute enough to invest in emerging technologies deserve to make money, don't they? That's what Bill Gates did. And Henry Ford.

Well in Al Gore's case he is kinda sorta a hypocrite.

For all he has said about the dangers of climate change and that we must shift ourselves off of fossil fuels his carbon footprint is rather large. And if he was serious about making the needed changes he'd lead by example.

There's ways for him to get around that could demonstrate low to no carbon use.

He could for one thing have his jet powered by carbon neutral jet fuels. And use the myriad of ways out there to reduce is living arrangements carbon footprint.

You know smaller more energy efficient home etc.

The point is being a hippocrite about global warming by over indulgence.

Ohwiseone

Although he is a wealthy person as are most who are or were in public office , the rich do tend to fly where they want and can afford big homes and fancy cars . So whats the point ?

Posted 42 days ago.

Ohwiseone

So far Joe I haven't seen Al Gore on the billionaires list so just maybe you're stretching it a bit !

Posted 42 days ago.

JoeBlow

No prob Myth. I don't see any solution that would not have some kind of an enviromental affect, all I see is the government wanting to get rich from the problems. Al Gore making a billion dollars off this has no qualms about flying solo in a big jet to give speaches and living in a house that is much larger than needed.

Sorry my bad Joe. I was thinking of the nickel metal hydride batteries. Not lipo battery packs.

As an aside. The battery and its cost is the problem. I don't know why they can build cars with diesel generators in them. Think diesel locomotives.

Wait a minute I know. Too good of fuel milage for the oil proponents and the fact that it would still be using an oil product for the enviro minded people.

Tiredofit wrote, "The use of fossil fuels... most likely will phase out for the most part."

I agree with that, and I've been preparing for it. I believe it's wise to prepare for changes when you think they're "most likely."

I believe in taking personal responsibility, so I don't wait for government to act when I know change will happen.
