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.

Tiredofit must have missed the little news blurb out this past week about resource depletion.

Basically what it boils down to is that if we dont temper our consumption of resources by consuming less or finding alternative means in producing what we need. If we don't do that then we are in some trouble.

We can do it or nature will.

Great article from the American Thinker, yeah I know, its not a leftist source but it shows quite well the religion of the atheistic left.

RELIGION INDEED All the trappings of religion are here: • Original sin: Mankind is responsible for the prophesied disasters, especially those of us who live in suburbs and drive our SUVs to strip malls and chain restaurants. • The need for atonement and repentance: We must impose a carbon tax or cap-and-trade system, which will raise the cost of everything and stunt economic growth. • Rituals: We must observe Earth Day, and we must recycle. • Indulgences: Private jet-fliers like Al Gore and sitcom heiress Laurie David can buy carbon offsets to compensate for their carbon-emitting sins. • Prophecy and faith in things unseen: Advocates say we must act now before it is too late.

Oh and on the subject of All Access.

If I was inclined to pay for it I would demand something be done about people who post a near endless amount of links to other websites....with rarely a word typed by themselves.

In fact if I was a paying customer I would DEMAND that be stopped.

LOL! Tiredofit it makes no sense for you to declare that anyone is losing anything.

You're kinda sorta compromised on this issue.

Your disagreement with it isn't based on the facts. Its based on who is politically backing the issue.

So go on back up to Marietta and agree with your fellow yes men.

Dr James Hansen, director of the Nasa Goddard Institute for Space Studies, who first made warnings about climate change in the 1980s, said that public scepticism about the threat of man-made climate change has increased despite the growing scientific consensus. THE UK TELEGRAPH

Oneil here is a bible verse that applies so well to you.

Proverbs 18:7 A fool's mouth is his undoing, and his lips are a snare to his soul.

FROM BROOKINGS After the warm and relatively snowless winter of 2012 over 1 out of 3 Americans that thought global warming was happening indicated that mild winters in their area had a “very large” effect on their position regarding global warming. But after the colder and snowier conditions of the winter of 2013 only about 1 in 5 Americans that think global warming is occurring said that milder winter conditions in their area had a “very large” effect on their views on this subject.

When you don't know what you are talking about, just blame climate change, Fox News and Rush, right, myth and oneill?

Don't those idiots know that climate change made that airplane disappear? And climate change would be stopped if it were not for Fox. Fox is responsible for so few tornadoes and very few hurricanes too. Fox Power. Whatever the weather, they did it.

And that is a consensus of my peers.

Oneill, why do you constantly put your ignorance on display by talking about what the "right" will do? I am on tbe right and being a long time subscriber to the News and Sentinel, how will I be affected? Talking about yourself?

Hope you and the peers are keeping warm. A fake concensus just gives an illusion of warmth so be careful.

This is for you Thatsabsurd.

I forgot to add this.

Anyone who cites Fox News as a source is pretty much admitting that they are misinformed.

Not that anyone cares what you say. But just so you know. It can be proven with facts that Fox News is deliberately deceptive in the news they "report".

The head honcho has an agenda and Fox News reflects that agenda.

From the hyper partisan bent they take to the flat out false accusations and insinuations they make.

Fox News isn't news. Its a rightwing propaganda mouthpiece.

Even their slogan We report you decide is misnomer. They decide before hand how the news must be spun and they spin it to make those that their boss disagrees with out to be bad.

Fox News is yellow journalism at its worst.

Thatsabsurd

A consensus in sciences is just that.a consensus. Any IMBE--cile that had to resort to idiotic accusations of someone watching fox news is . . . . .well is just a freaking imbecile.

And that's is my consensus.

On the issue of pay to play. It won't affect me one bit. I don't need to be on this site. Sure has been fun but you know what..big deal.

I won't have to worry about the stupid pop ups that I can't seem to block. The pop ups by the way are horrible on my android phone. You literally can't do anything without triggering one. Its annoying.

I just hope the paper is ready for a drop off in ad revenue and the potential that online readership will take a big hit.

Once the switch is made I won't even bother with this site.

The new Cosmos show is awesome. Its hilarious that it is causing people on the right to throw a fit though.

People demanding equal time to air their views on the origin of life.

Only problem is that they would have to be able to bring some proof to the table that specifically backs up their views to stand a chance. And we all know that can't happen.

Oh its so funny. Mr Tyson even took on the issue of the the complexity of the eye.

HA HA HA! LOL!

Its funny that so many are willing to argue the science is wrong...but when science lead to a medical treatment being developed that makes their lives better or saves their lives...yep no questioning the science there.

Its a political issue for most of the people who deny it. Its the old us versus them paradigm rearing its ugly head.

That is the biggest problem you have selling this myth, other than the TOTAL LACK Of warming. The socialist left has made this a religion and skepticism is bound to be the result.
