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.

Failed at what? I have accomplished everything I've set out to do on here.

Can you say the same?

Chuck e cheeze...there you go again with that obsession with children places. Why do you keep brining it up Michael?

"You are doing far more to foster skepticism than I ever could thanks"

Well heck Tired, almost anyone could considering you offer up no proof for any of your statements.

Calling me a coward is not a fact since it was you that ignore facts or the ways to defend your own arguments.

You have been invited in various different arenas to defend your position but you won't do it. I have stated many times my position and offer up information to back those positions up.

Exactly why do you call me a coward? Is it because I refuse to offer up the same evidnece for you again and again and again and again? If I kept doing that, I would fit the definition of insane.

Hmmm, are you going to keep asking for the same thing over and over again...and hope for a different outcome?

"and have read every single post."

And obviously didn't understand any of them.

"Shut me up"

I'm afraid that facts do little to shut people like you up dear boy.

Calling me names doesn't make the facts disappear Tired.

Calling me names in hope of deflecting your own acts of ignorance won't work either.

"Well enlighten me Kendall on what caused the glacial period"

I'm not the one on here that is talking about the glacial period...that would be you. Do you have evidence of what exactly caused the glacial period? You sure do seem like a person that knows what doesn't cause stuff..lol.

"The fact is"

You have no idea what the facts are.

"you have nothing and you know it."

All the pages with citations in this thread says differently.

"the ends justify the means"

And what "ends" do you think I hoping for? Please feel free to cite my very quotes if you have the guts to try this ;)

"and even without proof you just think it would be a good idea"

Thankfully there is proof.

"that man had no SUVS or coal powered plants during the glacial period."

Not one person on here ever made a claim that they did.

Is this how you plan on winning an argument...telling what didn't exist during a time you know nothing about from a scientific standpoint?

You might want to reconsider that plan.

I'll say again. Our proof has already been outlined. Its in the comments scattered throughout this forum topic.

If you want them go reread all those posts.

But you won't you are just going to repeatedly ask for proof.

But thats ok. I can just as well refer you to the previous comments. Which is what I am going to do. Each and every time you ask.

"You are being laid bare with a simple question, thank you for representing your side so poorly.:)"

There is only one thing being laid bare. And its your dishonesty.

You are hiding behind a question.

Also any proof put on the table will be rejected no matter what..by you.

Wouldn't it better serve your argument if you would prove your belief that the current climate change is due to a natural cycle devoid of unnatrual causes.

"Was man burning fossil fuels in the last ice age?"

You tell us, you seem to be an expert on what was or wasn't...lol.

"but I CAN prove it was not manmade co2"

You can prove something was "NOT" the cause of something?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Oh my gosh you are a card Tired. You rant on and on for multiple pages saying you cannot prove a negative and then you say something stupid like that.

"Ok where is the proof?"

I refer you back to pages 40-225 of this thread. You'll easily see them where you tried to deflect the evidence by saying it's all political like Louisiana state representative Lenar Whitney thinks it is as well.

@Harry- I agree...there are so many positives about reducing our need on fossil fuels in general. The long term pros for reducing our use on coal and oil far outweigh short term pros of relying on them.

Sometimes it seems like this all or nothing mentality with these arguments. I don't think any rational person that accepts man effects the climate actually expects the US to sudenly stop all coal production the the nation. That would be dumb.

"Nope never claimed I did"

Sooo...when you said it was just part of the natural cycle, you was speaking out you *ss?

Doesn't sound like you were being intellectually responsible.

"DO YOU HAVE PROOF that CO2 produced by man is warming the planet?"

Yes and it's been provided.
