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.

"what a short bus"

Why don't you just commit yourself to your juvenile behavior and call him retarded? At least be honest with your stupidity.

Curious, do you call African-Americans the N-word or do you try to come up with a clever way to be just as insulting?

"Stay out of our business and leave us alone, you nannies."

Guess you don't believe that the govt should have gotten involved with the whole Elk River disaster then. They should have just left it alone.

"A religion is a belief that influences the believer's life to a great extent. Fanatical global warmers fit that description."

Nope. Would you call your nigh fanatical belief that man has no influence on global warming as a religion? I doubt you would.

There is nothing really wrong with a belief, as long as you don't try and peddle it as a fact when you have nothing to show it is a fact.

"Now this joke of an administration is openly saying it will be good for people to stay home and not have jobs."

Say Ithink care to cite where you heard that?

My guess is that some republican is misquoting something someone said.

And socialism is not here. Do you even know what it is?

Me thinks that's just something you righties tell yourselves.

If you can't beat demonize them right?

Ithink if this country conducted its internal business the way people like yourself see fit I wonder how many more incidents like what happened in Charleston there would be?

My guess is a heck of a lot more.

Remember regulations are in place in most cases because a particular industry was found to be willfully doing something wrong at some point.

Whether it be fouled up air or fouled up waterways. Industries under EPA scrutiny in more cases than not needed to be regulated to keep them from polluting environment. They dont do these things because they think its right they do it because they have been made to do so by regulations in answer to problems they have caused.

Anyone that disagrees with you Tiredofit is a fraud and liar in your mind.

Oh well the manner in which the discussion has went down on here bears the real truth.

Believe me it doesn't reflect well on you.

Keep telling that lie Harry, you show yourself for what you are, fraud and a liar.

“I don't much care what a short bus and a fraud have to say to be perfectly honest.”

You also “don’t much care” what 97% of the world’s most expert climate scientists have to say, do you?

I don't much care what a short bus and a fraud have to say to be perfectly honest.

Gee,myth, you agree totally with a republican. Lol

A total miracle.

My beliefs don't cost you a penney,myth. But we tax payers have been paying for the green energy disasters like Solyndra and all the others. Jobs and tax revenue are lost through the corrupt EPA and obama regulations. The power grid is not safe either. Better stock up on batteries.

Stay out of our business and leave us alone, you nannies.

Now this joke of an administration is openly saying it will be good for people to stay home and not have jobs. Socialism is here. It is a much more dangerous worry than maybe, could be, might happen GW. If we all get stned we might not notice.

Harry was totally right in his comment about Tiredofit.

The problem is that we need to focus on what we can and should do. We need to be certain that the solutions we choose are the right ones.

Its really hard to do that when the discussion is muddied up by disruptive elements.

Tiredofit is a perfect example of a disruptive element to which I am referring.

Instead of honestly taking each issue in contention and talking about it openly with nothing more than the facts he picks and chooses the points he wants argue over.

Like the issue of funding. He always returns to that point because there is doubt to be squeezed out of that particular detail.

He uses it as an excuse to deny the whole body of work that climate scientists lay on the table. All the while refusing to answer other questions.

The earth is warming no arguing that point at all.

The problems we will see in our lifetimes aren't totally known. But we know that as the earth gets warmer big changes will take place.

We can try to stop it or we can position ourselves to adapt to it. But know for a fact that the countries not prepared for anything could find themselves in very desperate circumstances.

Desperate circumstances could very well lead to war.

War is a dangerous thing to court. Who knows where our civilization could find itself if another world war happened.

Thats just one of the many problems climate change could hit us with.

On the issue of Christianity let me say this.

I came across a picture of Kirk Cameron and in the picture this was said.

He demands that the government protect his right to practice his lifestyle so that he may influence others with his beliefs.

He demands that the government deny others the right to practice their own lifestyle for fear that they may influence others.

The pretty well sums up the issue I have with certain monotheistic religions.

Leave the rest of us alone and don't force your radical opinions on us!

Take your own advice Ithink.

No one wants to force you to believe man has a hand in global warming.

You are confusing being taken to task on what you say for being forced into believing something.

I could care less what you believe..but if you come on here and make comments on the issue then you open yourself and what you say for scrutiny.

The same for any topic.

A religion is a belief that influences the believer's life to a great extent. Fanatical global warmers fit that description. They believe and want to force others to believe. Like radical islam, and myth's false view of Christianity.

Leave the rest of us alone and don't force us to pay for your radical opinions, and we don't give a hoot what crazy views you have about controlling the climate.

Calling that opinion a religion , is as true as " if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan". Note, both falsehoods are told as truths by the same " scientific experts".

Myth, you wrote, “One tiny little bit of hearsay is the deciding factor for tiredofit!”

Tiredofit’s actions certainly support that statement, Myth. He keeps quoting about reducing the scientific uncertainty, and I keep asking him if he’s interested in “reduc(ing) the scientific uncertainty.”

He refuses to answer. It seems he’s afraid to find out for sure because scientific certainty might attack his counter climate change religion. Certainty would prevent hearsay, innuendo, and doubt.

As long as people like Tiredofit whose product is doubt can cite “one tiny little bit of hearsay,” they can cling to their counter climate change faith.

Think about it, Myth, why else would Tiredofit refuse to say whether or not he is interested in reducing the scientific uncertainty? As long as 97% of the world’s top experts agree with the IPCC, he has hope for his religion. When that percentage reaches 100% or certainty, all his hope is gone.

Anywho...I hope everyone has a good weekend and enjoy the Olympics :)

Go USA!

What else could I do get since you simply will not discuss the topic like a rational adult?

You ignore requests for information to support your position.

You ignore evidence when it is provided to you.

You have gotten "personal" more times than most when faced with the harsh realities your wish to ignore.

Honestly, I would love to have a rational conversation on science and even politics but I feel that at the moment I am Diogenes with a lamp.
