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.

"I laughed till I about ****** myself on this one, gee how would they do that Myth OH I KNOW JUST OPEN THE JAR lOLOLOLOLOL"

LOL! I am the one laughing. You see to take away any doubt if I was doing it I would start with the "jar" in a state of vacuum and then add in the precise mix so people like you can't say it wasn't right.

We know what gases constitute our atmosphere. So absolutely make sure every single one is in there in the exact proportion it should be.

Because we know how the smallest detail can through you guys into a hissy fit and be a deal breaker for you.

"scientific FACT tha MAN is causing a change in the climate"

It's already been given. Were you sleeping in class again Tired?

On the experiment topic...why haven't you done the experiment Tired and show that it doesn't work the way you say?

Is it too difficult for you? Maybe you don't understand the properties and wavelengths of the chemical compounds being tested? I am certain we can walk you through it if you are having mental issues with it.

"cannot prove a negative moron"

Ah, lying and name calling....the very trademark of Tired's arguments.

Goodness I bet if one was to meet Turdofit. You'd go to shake his hand and find it limp as a dead fish.

Such is the quality of his manhood.

I real man says what he means and means what he says.

And a real man has no qualms about explaining himself and his positions when asked.

Turdofit's dialog is so convoluted that a shrink would have a field day browsing the shelves of his mind albeit half empty ones at that. But a playground none the less.

Tiredofit are you man? Or a little child?

Oh sir please do answer that question. ;)

Now watch lol! Tiredofit will come in screaming "harry look what he said about you'.

But I'd never say or think that about Harry.

Harry is reasonable and above all else he has separated himself from the partisan hackery that plagues your dialog.

And there is a reason that I believe what Bill Nye does.

Its verifiable. And they are of the type of person I would trust if I knew them personally.

You Tiredofit are the exact type a person I wouldn't trust with my pet rock if I had one.

You conservative types have shown yourselves to be capable of some really sick and twisted things.

Hard to tell what skeletons you have in your closet. LOL! Probably a horse bridle and and a vast collection of womens undergarments.

You never showed the Nye experiment was flawed.

You did point out the obvious fact that it doesn't represent the true makeup of gases in the atmosphere. But thats obvious to anyone with half a brain.

The experiment could easily be done with a mix of gases representing our atmosphere and "glass" that lets in the complete spectrum of light.

But as done by Bill Nye the experiment was simple demonstration of the principles if co2's effect on our atmosphere.

"because you saw it on the internets"

Curious Tired...how many experiments have you conducted on the topic of global warming?

"You guys were all touting it as PROOF.."

Shows that you can't tell the truth about anything. I never even commented on the Nye thing Tired.

Try removing your foot from your mouth. It would benefit your position (as weak as it is) greatly.

"lay it out here"

It's been laid out many times Tired, you simply could not and would not understand it. Not our problem.

"I cannot prove a negative Kendall,"

Good thing I NEVER asked you to do that isn't it? But I did ask you to prove, "its a natural cycle", which you claim it is. Don't squirm from it Tired, provide the facts to back up your position.

Kendall78

"I cannot prove a negative and you have offered no proof"

No matter how many times you say it, no one has asked you to try and prove a negative and proof was given to you many many times on this very thread. Ignoring it is not the same as not having it given to you.

"MY SIDE SAYS MAN DOES NOT CAUSE GLOBAL WARMING"

So you are claiming ignorance as to why global warming is happening?

Ok..you're just stupid then and revel in that. No surprise there.

"In say manmade global warming does not exist."

Have I ever asked you to prove something does not exist?

The answer is no btw. Let me spoonfeed this to you.

1. One side says that the current heating of the Earth is due to mankind in part and have offered up proof to that.

2. The opposition (you) says that the current heating is part of the natural cycle. However, no proof is given to back up this proposition.

See...no proving the negative, so there is no weaseling out of it. Can you provide proof to you belief or not?

Kendall78

"If the only evidence for something's existence is a lack of evidence for it not existing.."

Oy vey...Tired, in no way did I imply that man made global warming relies on this.

You made a statement about today's increase in global heat is part of the natural cycle. There for, you should easily be able to show the similarities of today's heat increase with past events. You should be able to point out natural phenomenon that are the cause of the increased heat.

You haven't and frankly I don't think you can.

Now how about your next contrived controversy? Eh tiredofit?

And for the record I do not want to see any sort of carbon tax since I know it will used by certain greedy folks in the financial industry to make a hefty profit by speculating.

On a side note. BNSF railroad is experimenting with natural gas powered locomotives right now.

Whats interesting is it brings back into the railroad lexicon the use of the word tender. Since a tank car(tender) that provides the gas is behind the locomotive.

So things are changing.

I am going to put this here in all caps so my position is clear.

NOTHING CAN BE DONE IN MY OPINION TO STOP CLIMATE CHANGE NOW.

WE HAVE TO ADAPT TO THE CHANGES THAT COMES OUR WAY.

That means an all of the above approach to energy.

If we can use wind,hydro etc in certain areas. Then do it. Areas like ours that aren't really suited to them. Use natural gas or coal with carbon sequestration(provided its viable and safe)

But from an economic standpoint we are going to see a lot more gas fired power stations come online versus coal power.

Coal was supplanted as a means of fuel for the railroads when more economical diesel fueled locomotives came on the scene.

And so it will be with power generation.

How yea. Here recently was it not you who said that even though there IS warming man is not responsible for it?

But now you are saying there is no warming?

Consistency in position isn't your strong suit.

So which is it?
