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.

The purpose is to shut down rational debate.

Neutral sources will be the only proof that is considered.

You've dumped a heck of a lot of "proof" from rightwing sources on here.

Sorry but thats just not gonna cut it.

And more importantly its easy to ascertain the manner in which you conducted your "research". You just hopped around copy and pasting from whatever you thought had something to say that supports your cause.

What would you consider to count as proof Tired?

"You asked for research that is meaningful and that was provided"

No, it wasn't provided. This was neither research or meaningful. It was copy/paste from various less than savory source material.

Wow...look at all the copy/paste from Tired. Without much in the way of citations I might add.

I'll repeat what I said earlier.

There is no point in showing you the proof. No matter how right it is you can't admit that it is right because you can't allow us to be right on this issue.

"Lol so you and Kendall claim to have proof but won't share it lol."

Why does it sound ridiculous? Its exactly what you are doing.

"claim to have proof but won't share it lol."

It's right there for the taking Tired. But if you want it to be spoonfed to you...again....I'll make a deal with you.

You provide the proof to your arguments, and then I will repost the proof for mine.

It's absurd to try to prove something to someone who won't consider the forms of evidence everybody else, including the courts and the Congress, uses to make decisions.

To someone who has repeatedly tried to belittle the other posters here.

It's absurd to offer scientific proof to someone who has declared, "This is not a scientific debate."

But...you...can't..have it. (channeling my inner Captain Kirk).

I've got proof.

There are many religions.

You want scripture, Tiredofit. Glad to oblige.

I'm a Christian, which means I "have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power, and love, and of a sound mind."

Yes I know of proof.

Tiredofit I told you the other day that the warming hasn't stopped. The oceans have apparently ramped up their intake of heat.

But thats another bit of info you'll just deny.

For the record I don't think of Harry as being ignorant or fearful.

He hasn't said anything in any way that would lead me to believe that.

"Ok Tiredofit. If god exists where is he?

And as a bonus question. Can you prove that gods other than the one you believe do not exist themselves?

Harry you ignorant a fearful one lol"

LOL! The whole reason I posted that is because I knew..I just knew you would show people that in addition to the other stuff I have pointed out about you...you also like to try and play people against each other.

"Harry did you know myth thinks you are fearful and ignorant?"

No he doesn't. Myth isn't stupid.

Their influence will continue to decrease, as a new generation of Americans, who overwhelmingly accept the findings of climate scientists, grow up to replace the dying generation.

They really only have one route to victory--seize power and institute a dictatorship. I don't expect that, but I watch for the signs. Two of those signs are to demonize and shout down the opposition.

I wouldn't worry about it, though. All the shouts of the counter climate change propaganda movement haven't stopped the facts. Nor can they. All the shouting has accomplished is revealing and marginalizing the shouters.

The rest of the world has turned its back on this tiny, vocal minority. 2/3 of Republican-leaning voters feel we should reduce our use of fossil fuel. Even the big oil companies, who formerly funded the counter climate change movement, have moved on and now accept the science, as I pointed out earlier.
