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 think if you answer around half of the questions directed at you in the last few weeks, maybe Harry or others might tell you where the info comes from. Oh wait..they already did but you won't read anything that goes against what you believe in.

I thought this was an interesting news story that talked about "marine ice sheet instability": w w w.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-25729750

“Don't want to defend your 97% now do ya harry?”

Earlier this afternoon, I cited a study that backs up my comment.

I can cite more, but it might be pointless, since you said before, Tiredofit, that “it’s a political (agenda), not a scientific discussion.” I see no sense in citing scientific work to someone who states that science has no relevance to the topic.

You may have changed your mind. It seems you now want to discuss scientists’ conclusions.

Have you become willing to consider scientific evidence? If you are, we have a basis for discussing scientists’ work.

I am terribly sorry that you cannot see the humor in that you whine on and on about your perceptions of a person's math skills and whatever else your delusional mind grasps a hold of, but yet you do so in a way that shows your own vast ignorance.

But really, instead of shoving your head in the sand on these topics, offer up an actual scientific counter to them.

I personally think you know you are wrong and cannot bear to admit it. Otherwise you would have offered up evidence to the contrary.

@Harry- it's all part of their head in the sand approach to science. If they don't like it, they ignore it. They are no better than Obama ignoring all the bad that is Obamacare.

The scientific evidence grows stronger.

Geochemist James Powell found and reviewed 2258 peer-reviewed “climate articles” written by 9136 authors published between November 2012 and December 2013. He found exactly one article by a sole author that, in Powell’s words, “rejected man-made global warming.”

Of course, we shouldn’t expect the overwhelming conclusions of scientists who publish in the field to change the opinions of those who think it’s a political rather than a scientific discussion.

"how global warming hysteria leads to bad science, pandering politicians, and misguided policies that hurt the poor"

No one is being hysterical on here. Most people are citing good science. No one here is pandering to any politicians.

It's just a request but please quit spamming the site with article titles without any discussion on your part.

"Hope math or science is NOT involved."

Try "are" next time numbnuts before you try to correct others.

mythravere: you wrote "Hey I might make 11 bucks an hour." i just wanted to comment that i think one should never feel ashamed or feel the need to defend or justify their wage to anyone. honest work is honest work. it shows that you have convinced someone or some entity that you offer a service to them that is worthy of compensation. as much as you use the scripture in less than palatable ways sometimes, the parable regarding compensation seems rather appropriate and often times forgotten in the argument by some concerning "Fair Wage".

Wow Tired, do you ever try to back up any of your claims on the subject of man made climate change?

Or do you like the head in the sand approach?

“I am not crazy enough to think I know the future temperature, water levels, ice thickness,etc of the earth. I'll leave that to the loons.”

I’ll leave it to the 97% of all climate scientists who agree that mankind’s activities are causing climate change.

Posted 260 days ago.

Myth, you are nuts. You do the proving. I am not crazy enough to think I know the future temperature, water levels, ice thickness,etc of the earth. I'll leave that to the loons.

Posted 261 days ago.

There is no info about the future. Only guesses. Much info about the past cannot be proved.

You can say I murdered someone ten years ago and tbere is NO way I can prove I did not.

No one is obligated to disprove your wild claims. It is up to you to prove them, and you can't.

"I do find it odd that you three seem to think I owe you proof of anything."

When one makes a positive claim, oddly enough..most people expect you to back it up with evidnece.

"The fact is the burden of proof is on YOU"

And you have been provided with evidence of it happening.

"and you have failed to convince me that you even understand the supposed evidence you are touting,"

We could give the same evidence to a dung beetle and just because they do not understand it doesn't make it not factual. What is also humorous is that you shouldn't care if we understand it at all. All you should care about is if you understand it.

"I have stated many times that I believe any change in climate IS a natural event PERIOD."

And that is a positive claim that should be backed up with evidence.

"I have history on my side."

No you don't.

"I wanted you to see,again, that not all climate scientists agree with all the warming hysteria."

And I am glad that most scientists are not in that hysteria. It doesn't benefit anyone to be on the fringes when it involves a topic this big and important to humanity.

No Tiredofit,

You don't have to provide evidence for what you say...

...not unless you want to convince somebody, that is.

Posted 265 days ago.

I seldom agree 100% with what anyone says. I wanted you to see,again, that not all climate scientists agree with all the warming hysteria.

As far as how old the earth is, I don't know. I am not a Bible expert. In translating from one language to another, words have different meanings. I believe " in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth". How and how long, I don't know or care.

Now, I have some paint to watch dry.

@Ithink- did you agree with Lindzen or not? And for curiousity sake...did you agree with it Tired. If you read any of it that is.

I daresay myth can change his mind if he encounters credible evidence. As for Kendall, I know he can because I’ve seen it happen.

Posted 265 days ago.

harryanderson

I've not decided I can't be convinced. Just put forth the evidence and let me evaluate it.
