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.

To clarify...The vile messes are made by the liberals for others to clean up.

It is so revealing of who they really are. Everywhere the climate nuts get together, they leave mounds of trash to litter up the environment they claim to care about. Just a bunch of dope heads. Robert F Kennedy,Jr... Yuk !

Conservatives have to clean up their vile messes. So who really loves the environment? Not the liberals.

Funny thing is , over on the times forum he started using the derogatory term "fluffer" and nobody knew what the heck he was talking about ! Well once looked up it stands as a beacon of the type of "person" he is !Only a perverted mind would ever know what that was !

Here's the thing about Tiredofit.

When he encounters other people and views them through the lens of his highly politicized dogma anyone that has an opinion that he strongly disagrees with is looked at as a threat.

When that happens he automatically assigns them a label. Socialists.

That being done he no longer has to play fair anymore. Because the assigning of a label is an act of demonization and once demonized the no respect or other acts of civility need apply to them.

All that said and done. Its a win at any costs battle. Lie,cheat,misrepresent,demonization are all going to be used to destroy credibility,cast doubt and undermine the other person.

We've seen all those tactics deployed by Tiredofit. Whether he realizes it or not.

But maybe there is something in what the socialists are saying.

I mean if you really look at what capitalism has done to this state you can only conclude that this state and its people were given the raw end of the deal.

Just consider the amount of coal pulled from our mountains...consider how much wealth that represents...then look at how impoverished the areas where the mining took place are today.

Capitalists took so much and gave back so little.

And now lets discuss why you brought that article up.

Its really simple. Its a hit piece. Its you trying to connect us to what was more than likely a small part of that march in attempt to paint us as socialists.

I checked out that article you linked to Tiredofit.

All I have to say is those people who preach that would should totally stop using carbon based fuels are about as foolish as the knee jerk commenters on that very same article.

While in Congress, Inglis had a 100% rating from the Christian Coalition.

Which reminds me of what Paul wrote to Timothy: Avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife.

Inglis founded the Energy and Enterprise institute at George Mason University. Those interested can check them out at energyandenterprise dotcom.

Sure you wrote it. I remember when. It was a few days before the first of this year.

It's difficult for Republicans to accept the views of most climate scientists because the counter climate change movement heaps especial vitriol on those who do. The counter climate change movement even tries to shame them out of the party.

Yet, despite that hurdle, I believe more and more Republicans will be courageous and speak out like Bob Inglis did.

Myth,

You may not know much about math, but you have an excellent understanding of human nature, which is more important.

I thinks it time we stop the debate on this issue itself and start the debate on peoples motivations in debating this issue.

"Ill keep asking, you will keep insulting and asking irrelevant questions."

You mean questions that shoot holes in your argument?

Yea we all know why you only talk about specific things that have room for argument in them.

Like not talking about world wide weather and environmental phenomenon that points to a warming planet and then explaining why those phenomena are naturally occurring rather than due to mans influence.

That right there would be part of you proving your own position. Which you refuse to do.

And you said you wanted to have an honest debate. Pffft! No you don't.

mythravere

Yep. Its the sleaziest way to "win" a debate.

Prove nothing of your own positions.

And when the other party strives to outline and actually gives proof to back up their position. Never acknowledge any of its right.

And thats without going into how sleazy it is to make baseless accusations about people and the political leanings and the constant ad hominem attacks.

And because I know he will wail about what I said earlier in regards to meeting his baseless accusation with my own. Sorry pal you started that crap way before I did.
