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.

Already said BWW is in Vienna WV so yes I know where it is. Why would you say I spend so much time in a place I have never been>?

"you want me to meet you at Buffalo Wild wings tonight at 10 30 so you can prove who you are."

You are the one who is doubting who I say I am. If you believe I am the person I say I am and that I actually wrote the LTE I claimed to write...then all is good.

If you think I am lying, I am merely offering you the chance to be proven wrong.

A threat? HAHAHA. Don't flatter yourself.

I offer you a chance to find out something in a safe environment and under safe conditions and you turn yellow.

The only threat was to show you something you didn't know before. And perhaps humble you a little with a fun game of trivia.

Don't try and hide behind your fear. Of course, it is more likely that you don't live anywhere near here and really don't know where Buffalo Wild Wings is.

Or perhaps your mom and dad won't let you out after night...who knows.

SO KENDALL, you want me to meet you at Buffalo Wild wings tonight at 10 30 so you can prove who you are.

You are saying I spend lots of time at that place? You want me to meet you there so you can prove who you are?

You may feel the topic is science but what you really mean is that the topic is science that you accept and nothing else. It's ok, you get confused quite easily.

You do realize that science changes right? To hold a person in 2014 to the standards and ideas of 1970 would be very silly. That would be like forcing a Christian to be a literalist just because a 100 years ago, the vast majority of them were.

Kendall, I have never been to that place in Vienna, but I take that as some kind of threat. Be careful what you ask for.

I do use my real name...Kendall. I've always said that. Seems some angry children don't understand the simple things in life. So tragic.

Will you stop by Buffalo Wild Wings tonight around 10:30? I'll even buy you a drink before beating you at trivia.

I am offering you a chance to prove who I am to you. Will you expand the horizons of your knowledge with a simple enough test or will you hide with your head in the sand? I know you find it quite comfortable there, you seem to spend so much time in that place.

NO THE TOPIC IS SCIENCE. SO nice try Kendall78

Posted 165 days ago.

Kendall78

I never claimed once that Kendall78 was in fact my real name. Don't be an ignorant twit.

Posted 165 days ago.

Kendall78

Not the 1970's and today's scientists and research has nothing to do with that stuff.

Posted 165 days ago.

Tiredofit

Well KENDALL lets deal with FACTS I dare say Kendall78 is NOT your real name so stop being a self righteous hypocrite

"deny the very existence of evolution"

Pitiful tactic, the topic is about global warming and not evolution.

Global warming is something that can be observed in real time. We can keep records of how it is going about. When one discusses evolution, you cannot do that.

Let’s fast forward to the 1970s, when we were entering a new ice age and the only possible solution was – surprise - more government power. The global cooling panic morphed into the global warming panic. Suddenly, temperatures were inexorably rising and the ice caps were melting. In fact, they should be melted by now.

But “global warming” is problematic when the uncherry-picked evidence shows that the Earth is not getting significantly warmer. The hockey stick is stuck. Now, one might take this new evidence and revise one’s conclusion to conform to the observed data. We call that science. But we are dealing with “science,” and when the evidence doesn’t support your conclusion you change the name of the phenomenon.

Hence, “climate change.” Its goal was stop us wacky literalists from being able to point to a lack of warming to disprove global warming. Apparently, we were fools to expect that what the scammers called “warming” might involve warming.

I'm certain you have not seen 78 in anyone's name silly child. Have you seen "Kendall"....take your time...think about it. Let that brain of yours churn through the information.

"how would one know that what you say is the truth? there are MANY Kendalls here in the MOV. NO PROOF OFFERED"

Style of writing. Consistency of opinions. Things that won't make any sense to the likes of you.

But hey, if you have the time.****e on down to Buffalo Wild Wings in Vienna around 10:30 tonight and I'll meet you there. We can play some buzztime trivia.

That is..if you actually live around here.
