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.

Yeah, I must have ignored where you said Monica before *rolls eyes*

"No you don't have the first clue"

There is that blind guessing we see so much from you.

"I guess it's lack of experience"

More classic Tired guessing.

"dont know dont care"

Sure you don't, that's why you want to get the last word in.

"You think socialism is ok so there is no hope for you."

You lie, I have never said it was "ok".

"You are in the minority, and that's a good thing"

You should be wary about letting mob mentality direct your thinking.

"Noaa climate project manager admits climate scientists exagerate to gain funding and attention so yes I do have a reasonable doubt"

One man is hardly confirmation however.

NOAA has said, "The fact that globally averaged surface air temperature has shown no trend or even slight cooling over the last 7 years is not an accurate reflection of long-term general trends. In fact,calculation of a trend over the last seven years is a gross mischaracterization of the longer term trend."

"You will ignore anything that doesnt support your desire to give more of your freedom to govt."

I have ignored nothing. You just are not convincing in your rants.

I never once said we should give any freedoms away. You are reaching.

"ever heard of climategate??????"

Yep..a tired old smokeless gun that has nothing to do with the scientists we are talking about.

"Noaa now there is a unbiased source."

You have any reason based on fact instead of ignorance not to trust them?

"The figures reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012 there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures"

This is funny. You say that the temp isn't going higher while ignoring that the average for this timeframe is in fact higher than any 17 year swath since 1850.

Answer this truthfully if you are able, is the last 17 years average temp higher than the 17 years prior to it?

"So, yes, climate scientists might exaggerate, but in today’s world, this is the only way to assure any political action.."

You have no evidence that the climate scientists in question have exaggerated anything.

You have no evidence that the climate scientists in question put out any info to get political action.

As for understanding what causes global warming, you again are showing your ignorance about your fellow commentators on here. Many things attribute to global climate change. History shows that polar ice, oceanic flow and temp and particulate content all contribute to global climate change.

Do you have any non-political reasons (meaning scientific) that makes you doubt these factors, among others, don't effect global climate change?

Tired, you don't understand a single bit of what you regurgitate here.

I would also caution you about trusting the views of the public. Prior to December 1941, the US public wasn't very interested in the Japanese Empire.

"NASA scientists say 2013 tied with 2009 and 2006 for the seventh warmest year since 1880, continuing a long-term trend of rising global temperatures." (w w w.arctic.noaa.gov/detect/global-temps.sh tml

It's a cult, and they are brainwashed before becoming brain dead.

The way things are going, this thread may be the only one current when the truth comes to fruition. Cabot WC-1 is being with the access road being cut and soon equipment will be boring a deep hole into the Marcellous shale. It's completion will hold the path of exploration in the area. Let's hope Cabot can keep everyone content during the process that can actually bring change to the valley.

GW....God's Wrath...not mans' self diagnosed Goofy Weather false predictions.

You are however incorrect with your notion. Unless of course you mean the daily weather collected from ever area on the planet, every day and add to all that such things like atmospheric partical counts and soil moisture.

Is that what you meant or did you just mean what ol Kirk Greenfield tells you on the tube?

"They cannot predict next week's weather.."

What does weekly weather predictions have to do with global climate change that spans decades?

mythravere, good afternoon. from what i have read the wind has the greatest impact on not only the gulf stream but all water currents. density is another factor as well as compression and expansion due to land masses. lessening the salt concentration would decrease the density of the ocean waters which would affect the currents. i have yet to research what the tipping point in salt concentration would actually be to radically change any ocean current. thnaks for the subject matter. hi there harry and tiredofit. forgive any poor spelling...i do not have my good eyes on at the moment.

mythravere,

You do a decent job handling the constant bullying and taunting to which you're subjected.

Like my Granny used to say--Don't let 'em know where your goat's tied up.
