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.

Thats like complaining about someone for using a rock to hammer nails when you have a hammer in your hand.

Either help them out by letting them use your hammer or just shut the **** up!

Imagine if Jesus refused to explain why his way is the best way in light of all the people around him having false beliefs about what the creator was all about.

Tiredofit claims to have the truth but yet won't share that truth then complains all the rest of us are wrong and misinformed.

That makes a lot of sense.

"This has turned into a game on here."

Yes it has, and the game is to discourage rational discourse. The latest technique involves moving your opponent's posts off the page with many short posts. It's the message-board equivalent of shouting down your opponent.

"Since when is science over>? What he means is shut up, stop doubting"

So under your way of thinking, do you respect the Flat Earth Society?

"I will prove man has no role in climate change."

Your positive statement came before anyone else on here. You are to prove your statement first and not weasel out of it by pretending anyone has to go first.

"CAN ANYONE GIVE A SINGLE PROVABLE FACT SHOWING MAN IS CHANGING THE CLIMATE"

To you? No, because you won't accept anything that doesn't fit into your objective.

If I were in your shoes and I felt as threatened by the spectre of fighting climate change as you do.

I would be trying to change people's minds and make a difference for my cause!

But you aren't even in it for that.

This has turned into a game on here.

You will not provide anything that backs up your professed beliefs on this issue. Even though according to you they represent the truth.

And if you indeed do not want to see action taken on this issue you should be more than happy to correct those you accuse of being misinformed with said facts that again supposedly make you right.

But you will not do that.

In fact when I have brought that up in previous posts you ignored that little angel.

So I guess we know your motivations now. Or rather what they aren't.

The debate is over for people that look at the facts and see that what the climate scientists are saying is true.

On the other the debate is still raging for people like you.

People that have their position and will not acknowledge that facts that are contrary to their position.

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?

Since reducing our use of fossil fuels is desirable for a number of reasons, what do you think of the revenue-neutral carbon tax proposals?

The big problem with this issue is that well monied interests cast a significant amount of doubt on this issue.

Thats unfortunate because of people like tiredofit.

People like Tiredofit have taken that doubt and cocooned themselves in it and refuse to come out.

And I think it should be said that the doubt thats been put out there. Is totally unfounded.

And as far as the "proof" you did "provide" its one tiny controversial subject.

As such there are still large amounts of evidence supporting mans role in causing an uptick in our planet's temperature.

All you did was go after the low hanging fruit.

I expected as much.

I will be specific now.

You say man has no role in causing climate change therefore that leads one to assume that you believe its a natural phenomenon.

Ok provide proof of that position. But I must add for the record that you go back and forth between saying that warming isn't due to man and say that there hasn't been any warming at all.

Thats a glaring inconsistency on your part.

I hate to inform you of this but you didn't provide any proof of anything.

You took one issue that has nothing to do with your position and absolutely nothing to do with the information I requested and floated that as your proof.

You even plagiarized it! OMG LOL!

Copy and pasting will be disregarded.

"SO after dealing with all the morons in the room does ANYONE ELSE wish to provide PROOF that man is causing a change in the climate?"

Man you really showed your arrogance with post. Good job pal!

I don't reject the existence of god out of hand.

There just isn't any kind of proof to support the existence of any ones god at all.

The only other sentient beings we know are ourselves.

And in case you haven't disregarded that science too. Astronomy tells us the universe is quite large and the potential for other sentient beings who might quite possibly be older than us is highly likely.

Religion is nothing more than a security blanket for the ignorant and fearful.

But now onto other things.

"something that Kendall mocks"

Why do you lie so much? I never have mocked God. I've mocked you quite a bit but nothing sacrilegious about that.

"you guys cannot point to a single provable fact that shows Man is causing a change in the climate."

There is a difference between cannot and will not. Your behavior on here is a leading reason why people will not provide proof. Your past behavior has shown everyone on here you are intellectually dishonest and very closed minded.

"you're asking me to believe you instead of the experts. No sale."

Good point Harry.

Why are you more dependable on this topic than the experts Tired?
