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 claim made headlines around the world, but yesterday it emerged that GISS’s analysis – based on readings from more than 3,000 measuring stations worldwide – is subject to a margin of error. Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all.

Yet the Nasa press release failed to mention this, as well as the fact that the alleged ‘record’ amounted to an increase over 2010, the previous ‘warmest year’, of just two-hundredths of a degree – or 0.02C. The margin of error is said by scientists to be approximately 0.1C – several times as much.

SO IF THE MARGIN OF ERROR IS .1C AND THE INCREASE IS .02C AND THE CERTAINTY IS 38% WHY ARE YOU POSTING THIS AS FACT?

NASA reports:

"The year 2014 ranks as Earth’s warmest since 1880, according to two separate analyses by NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists. The 10 warmest years in the instrumental record, with the exception of 1998, have now occurred since 2000. This trend continues a long-term warming of the planet, according to an analysis of surface temperature measurements by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS) in New York."

hmmmmmm 38%????? .02C? That's 62% that they are WRONG HARRY, still stand by the propaganda????

SO HARRY, 38% certainty that 2014 was .01 degree c warmer than 2010? YOU BELIEVE THIS?

The fact that this area was covered in mile thick ice sheets at one point doesn't matter, it's gotta be capitalism that is causing it

They always gloss over the fact that surface temps have stopped rising 18 years ago, they claim the heat just up and went to the ocean for no explainable reason just got tired of warming land and said I'm outa here

Doesn't matter to them Greek, they beleive what they are fed. Look how they tout the 97% figure knowing it's misleading to put it nicely!

The Nasa climate scientists who claimed 2014 set a new record for global warmth last night admitted they were only 38 per cent sure this was true. In a press release on Friday, Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) claimed its analysis of world temperatures showed ‘2014 was the warmest year on record’. The claim made headlines around the world, but yesterday it emerged that GISS’s analysis – based on readings from more than 3,000 measuring stations worldwide – is subject to a margin of error. Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all.

The margin of error is said by scientists to be approximately 0.1C – several times as much.

As a result, GISS’s director Gavin Schmidt has now admitted Nasa thinks the likelihood that 2014 was the warmest year since 1880 is just 38 per cent. However, when asked by this newspaper whether he regretted that the news release did not mention this, he did not respond. Another analysis, from the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) project, drawn from ten times as many measuring stations as GISS, concluded that if 2014 was a record year, it was by an even tinier amount.

Yeah HARRY that statement isn't too contrived, lol

97% of respondents to a survey (ok that is hardly 97%of any kind of scientist)who listed climate science as their area of expertise (did anyone check their level of expertise)and who also have published more than 50% of their recent peer-reviewed (cronie approved)papers on the subject of climate change. . . think (can prove?)human activity (vague)is a significant contributing factor in changing mean global temperatures.(notice warming is not said)”

Since warming has ceased in the last 18 years, just how much could man be contributing?

Peer review? So the others agree that they need more funding? I am stunned

I agree. It's not true that 97% of all scientists agree AGW has catastrophic consequences.

But, as I said, 97% of respondents to a survey "who listed climate science as their area of expertise and who also have published more than 50% of their recent peer-reviewed papers on the subject of climate change. . . think human activity is a significant contributing factor in changing mean global temperatures.”

And those scientists who specialize in climate change and whose articles have stood the test of peer review are the experts, in my opinion. You disagree, and I'm okay with that.

"Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree: #climate change is real, man-made and dangerous."

Barrack Obama

First of all, the 97% is a lie, All scientists is a lie, And the word dangerous wasn't even part of the survey he pretending to cite

Naaaaa nothing politic there

The Obama quote is the line the socialist left is pushing, gee sounds political to me.

And no your statement is NOT accurate, but you already know that.
