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.

Still waiting for those facts

You know the earth at one time had one super continent.

So exactly how old was those boreal forests in Greenland?

It was only five years ago in December that Al Gore claimed that the polar ice caps would be completely melted by now. But he might be surprised to find out that Arctic ice coverage is up 50 percent this year from 2012 levels.

A couple questions.

In your beliefs how old is the earth?

Do you believe in continental drift?

"Have you been to the poles?"

Have you?

That boat if I remember right was stuck in Antarctica. Which is seeing less impacts from global warming. Besides a lot of antarctica's ice on land.

Also most of the earth's population lives in the northern hemisphere.

Greenland used to be forested. Sorry no man made warming proof try again

n 1981 researchers removed a long tube of ice from the center of a glacier in southern Greenland at a site known as Dye 3. More than a mile (two kilometers) long, the deep end of the core sample had been crushed by the pressure of the ice above it and sullied by contact with rock and soil. By destroying the pattern of annual layers, this contamination seemingly made it impossible to assess the region's ancient climate. But DNA extracted from the previously ignored dirty bottom has revealed that Greenland was not only green, it boasted boreal forests like those found in Canada and Scandinavia today

Actually the one I just mentioned is a good example. Because not only is a warmer atmosphere melting the sea ice up in the north but scientists are finding elevated levels of soot on the ice and snow up there too.

That adds to the amount of sunlight the ice and snow absorbs and contributes to its melting.

Have you been to the poles? Where did you get your information? Last boat I knew of was stuck in ice for weeks

You say I ignore facts, so do you. Show me a prediction that can be proven to be a direct result of carbon

Oh yea I need to mention that the northern ice pack becoming less and less in the summer is allowing shipping routes to open up that weren't there ten years ago.

Also there is a push for increased energy exploration by all the countries with with a stake up there.

Couldn't do so much of that ten years ago.

Why is that?

Posted 145 days ago.

Tiredofit

Yep, so why is that proof of anything?

Convince me that me showing you facts is a worthwhile endeavour.

You'll have already shown that you will deny it all.

You know the polar north is still cold and when we have a slew of weather patterns bring that cold down here along with moisture from the south what do we get?

Bad winter! DEE DEE DEE!

I have a huge list of failures show me some facts

“Good bye winter… In the northern hemisphere the deviations are much greater according to NOAA calculations, in some areas up to 5°C. That has consequences says DWD meteorologist Müller-Westermeier: When the snowline rises over large areas, the bare ground is warmed up even more by sunlight. This amplifies global warming. A process that is uncontrollable – and for this reason understandably arouses old childhood fears: First the snow disappears, and then winter.” Die Zeit, 16 Mar 2007
