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.

I dare say you are a liar Tired because I have not denied that the available data could (note the word...COULD) show an increase of temps.

However, what you fail to understand was my question on how you can say that Mars and Pluto are comparable to Earth. Please try it again if you can.

Now read this carefully, I know you have diffculties with reading comprehension, why is it that you won't believe the Earth is getting warmer with literally thousands of thermometers giving raw data to support that but yet you believe data from four rovers and one satellite?

Nah, you have a right to your own skepticism, I wont call you an anti science denier, that would be wrong.

Please try to explain how Mars and Pluto are the equivelent to Earth?

The sizes/mass are not the same.

The atmopsheres are not the same.

The energy they get from the Sun is not the same.

Reflactive quality isn't the same.

The collective knowledge of climate patterns on the planets are not the same.

Ok, you don't believe the accuracy of thousands of Earth based thermometers in the past but you will believe a handful of rovers and a satellite around Mars as to the temperature there?

Exactly why do you think Pluto is warmer? Is there some independant group not affiliated with a govt agency that is measuring temps on dwarf planets?

Earth is heating up lately, but so are Mars, Pluto and other worlds in our solar system, leading some scientists to speculate that a change in the sun’s activity is the common thread linking all these baking events. Livescience

Are you a Martian warming denier???????? :0

Exactly why are we discussing a planet that is farther away from the Sun than ours, with little atmosphere, no oceans and have not been accurately observed like our world has?

What do we have in common with mars. Mmmmmmm let's see..........oh yea that giant burning mass of gas 93 million miles away.

Hmmmm are there suvs on mars that I am unaware of? Do those pesky martians have coal fired power plants?

A Gloomy Mars Warms Up05.14.07   For the past 30 years, NASA scientists have been using high-tech satellite equipment to study features on the face of Mars. It appears a slight change in the planet’s surface luster has caused its temperature to rise. NASA WEBSITE.

Or Dec. 7 — It might seem like the weather's getting warmer here on Earth, but Mars appears to have an even bigger global warming problem.

High-resolution images snapped by NASA's Mars Global Surveyor show that levels of frozen water and carbon dioxide at the Red Planet's poles have dwindled dramatically — by more than 10 feet — over a single Martian year (equivalent to 687 days or about two Earth years).

Mars Melt Hints at Solar, Not Human, Cause for Warming, Scientist Says Kate Ravilious for National Geographic News February 28, 2007 Simultaneous warming on Earth and Mars suggests that our planet's recent climate changes have a natural—and not a human-induced—cause, according to one scientist's controversial theory.

Maybe this is what he was referencing I don't know.

Oh yea thats like 130 some degrees away reality by the way.

"In a condemnatory speech last week against the Obama administration’s new Environmental Protection Agency carbon emission regulations, Kentucky state Sen. Brandon Smith (R) claimed that man-made climate change is scientifically implausible because Mars and Earth share “exactly” the same temperature."

OMG! LOL!

So Tiredofit do you agree with what he said?

Whoo Boy the face of stupid right thar.

That's fine, I really don't need to know.

Not a difficult question, tell me why you want to know if I had a Govt job or if I have NOT had one. If you don't wish to answer fine but I'm not going to answer til you do.

"WHY would one have to go to such lengths if there was not something to hide"

Probably because they are not hiding anything and you just won't accept their findings.

"Secondly I doubt the FOIA request would do much good outside the US"

The conversation was mostly about NOAA which is within the US. Focus Danielsan...focus.

So you have never actualy seen the data that you SOOOOO believe. You take the readers digest version that others provide you. Yea slave to science that's you allright.

When I used 110% it meant that you go above and beyond in regards to your bias toward climate change.

In other words your bias is in the realm of irrationality.
