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.

Here's a thought. We've seen a decline in the number of hurricanes for awhile now. As everyone knows hurricanes feed off of warm ocean water. Now wind shear has a big influence on hurricane development. Too much and no go. Now if there aren't any hurricanes to pull that warmth out of the water and the Gulf Stream takes that warm water north its reasonable to say that the water up there is going to be warmer than normal.

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 !

That article was from 2013. The oceanic warming discovery was this year.

Surface temps of what. Water or the air?

I've never discussed climate changes causing harsher winters.

But now that you mention it. Do you know why it is doing that?

Changes in the jet stream. Which has seasonal tendencies. Last year it came farther south than normal hence polar vortex.

I never said that. Reading comprehension?

Thats to what I was referring to.

"By what phenomenon did the co2 say "hey warming land is boring, let's quit and go warm the oceans". Lol"

In the areas where the surface currents dive deep into the ocean to begin the next leg of their global circulation. The warm surface water is warming up the ocean farther down than it has done in the past. Water can hold more heat than air. And those currents are mixing in more and more warm surface water.

Not to mention the effect that a more and more ice free Arctic ocean is going to have on oceanic circulation.

Tiredofits tendency to call those who he "debates" with on socialists,warmists propagandists etc. Is a technique to link a person or idea with a negative symbol. The person who uses this technique hopes that the audience will reject the person or idea on the basis of the negative symbol,instead of looking at and hear what that person has to say and any evidence the provide to back up their position.

"6. The lack of warming is a sign of warming."

Has anyone said there is a lack of warming? Especially in light of the discovery of deep oceanic warming.

Notice that in regards to climate change it is referred to as being GLOBAL. This means the whole planet. The oceans are as much a part of the climate as the atmosphere.

"5. The lack of severe weather is a sign of global warming"

Again weather events that are seasonally uncharacteristic are a sign that changes are happening in our climate.

Hurricanes have certain criteria in order to form. For quite some time these seasonal weather events took every year as that had in years past with some variations. Climate change is disrupting the seasonal weather and wind patterns that allow hurricanes to form.

"4. Weather is not CLIMATE, unless it supports us."

Another emotion laden unfounded attribution.

3. Extreme weather is a sign of global warming"

Weather events that are seasonally uncharacteristic are a sign that changes are happening in our climate.

2. Cooling is evidence of warming

No one said this. Just you making an unfounded attribution. Big surprise there.

"1. Money only corrupts those who disagree with Algore"

Funny that it matters in regards to scientific funding but you never dig to see who's funding the sites you frequent.

Based on past experience, I predict you’ll use the shotgun approach next.

My posts revealed the absurdity of your demands for proof, so you’ll bury my posts under a bunch of short posts and plagiarizing someone else.

“Another ‘true believer’ without a shred of PROOF just itching to empower Government.”

There you go again.

By calling me a “true believer,” you are using an ad hominem argument (attacking an opponent rather than his or her position).

By claiming I’m “just itching to empower Government” (sic), you are using the straw man argument (misrepresenting an opponent’s position to discredit her or him).

I figured you’d go there. Again.

“To be proven, something needs to be demonstrable and repeatable.”

That’s absurd. If that were true, we could never prove something that could only happen once. Suppose Clyde killed Moira. According to your definition, we couldn’t prove it because Moira could not be killed again. Sure, you could have Clyde kill Truman, but contrarians like you could always argue that it wasn’t the same because Truman isn’t Moira.

You’d better stick to the childish insults, Tiredofit. It’s the only way you can win. If you step into the field of rational discourse, you lose every time.

Will you accept scientific evidence?

Will you accept the scientific evidence?

And to make your case, you refer to Galileo observing evidence to prove something. Yet you refuse to observe the many pieces of evidence that have been offered to you.

So if you won’t consider the evidence, how can you prove something?

This is too rich.
