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 you seem to fail to grasp is that no one is planning on uprooting our entire society if we do not need to. It took a long time for the Earth to get where it is in the case of global warming. It will take a long time to fix it, so any suggestions to knee jerk action like you imply is foolish.

Only those on the defensive make grand leaps like you have done Tired. Try to think before responding next time. Heck, what I would like to see is you to try and respond to any questions that I have asked of you. It's fun to see you try and dodge them. You look more and more like Obama everyday.

You won't have electricity so no text, mail service uses gasonline, smoke signals are a no go, hmmmmm. Well I guess you'll be dead anyway if you stoped emitting so I will take your word that you will stop.

Let's see...you focus a lot on a place with little children.

You pull off another ad hominem attack and you still have answered no questions directed to you.

Ignoring your fascination with places where little kids are, so it sounds like you admit that CO2 is bad. Otherwise, why would you care to try such a inept debate strategy?

Let me know when that is accomplished.

Be part of the solution Kendall, stop emitting co2.

Are you living by example Kendall? Do you eat meat there at chucky cheese with you little buddies and do you drive a car? Is your house (or mothers basement perhaps) heated with fossil fuels? How can you engage in those earth destroying activities? Lead by example and perhaps you will have some credibility.

Ignoring your fascination with places where little kids are, I have stated facts. You are more than welcome to show how I am incorrect in my statements.

Still no proof just insult tossing from chucky cheese.

"I am always amused at the tolerant left.."

Left or Right, some things should not be tolerated...in this case, your ignorance.

In your four posts this morning, you have offered nothing to counter any of the science that has been offered on here. You write it off as faith while you stick your head in the sand.

Is it faith that the Earth's average temp is higher than it was 100 years ago? Is it faith that it's average is higher than 25 years ago?

Is it faith that we have put more carbon in the atmosphere than the natural carbon cycle can handle?

Sure climate changes without man's involvement but you hope beyond rational hope that man cannot effect it at any level at all.

"What I said was there is no proof that co2.is causing anything but healthy plant growth but not climate change or global warming whatever term they are using today."

You said that incorrectly. What you should have said is that you would accept no proof that CO2 causes anything but healthy plant growth.

You have never addressed the Earth's carbon cycle and what it means when the dominant species throws more carbon out into the atmosphere than the carbon cycle can handle.

You have never offered any viable option to why the the planet is getting warmer.

You have never gave a reason why the planet is warmer than it was20-40 years ago.

I am always amused at the tolerant left and the absolute anger they spew while calling we on the right mean spirited and intolerant.

Tiredofit

Do you, the faithful, still heat your home with carbon based fuel? Do you eat meat and drive a car? Lead by example before you try to impose your FAITH on the rest of us.

So as i laid you argument bare, if you wish now to claim that you have a belief or faith that co2 is warming the planet, fine I won't argue a matter of faith, just refrain from calling it a proven fact because it is NOT. myth I doubt you have any thought or question to "blow a hole" in the faith of millions.

Of course I never said lack of proof shows no warming, another lie. I feely admit the climate changes or we would be under a mile of ice right now. What I said was there is no proof that co2.is causing anything but healthy plant growth but not climate change or global warming whatever term they are using today.

I could if I wanted to get banned from posting on here point out something that blows a hole right in this notion of God the supreme creator.

Christians like to point out the complexity of various things like the eye in showing that a guiding hand had to be present in making something so complex.

Ok! If a person believes that then I got a question for them that points out something that for all intents and purposes looks like God has played a huge joke on us.

But it would be considered highly offensive if I would point that out.

Its an interesting dichotomy between something being seen as sacred but yet lying within that is something shockingly profane.

Its like an artist who's beautiful paintings hide within them atrocious images that makes one question the sanity of the painter.

Exactly, faith in God is just that, faith without proof. I freely admit I cannot prove there is a God, but I believe there is. In the famous words of mythy, " what if I'm right". To compare the two is inaccurate at best, as I don't try to CONVERT you nor suggest the govt should force you to go to church. Nice try. And MOD IF YOU INDEED ON THE SQUARE, YOU MUST HAVE A FAITH OR YOU LIED WHICH IS IT
