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 have no problem with the Keystone XML pipeline. I sure it can be constructed in a responsible manner.

Joe forgot to quote this part from his copy/paste:

"As the area covered in sea ice expands scientists have said the ice on the continent of Antarctica which is not over the ocean continues to deplete.

CEO of the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems CRC, Tony Worby, said the warming atmosphere is leading to greater sea ice coverage by changing wind patterns."

Is it still "good information" Tired?

"Good information"

Why was that good information Tired? Was any of what he posted a "provable fact"?

Extent of Antarctic sea ice reaches record levels, scientists say By Jane Ryan and Sam Ikin Updated 15 Sep 2014, 7:26pmMon 15 Sep 2014, 7:26pm Photo: An area about three times the size of Australia, in the Antarctic region, is now covered by sea ice. (British Antarctic Survey) Related Story: Krill diet discovery predicts threat to Antarctic lifeRelated Story: Ozone layer showing signs of thickening, UN saysRelated Story: Atlas of Southern Ocean marine life launchedMap: Antarctica Scientists say the extent of Antarctic sea ice cover is at its highest level since records began.

Satellite imagery reveals an area of about 20 million square kilometres covered by sea ice around the Antarctic continent.

Jan Lieser from the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) said the discovery was made two days ago.

"This is an area covered by sea ice which we've never seen from space before," he said

I wonder how much it is going to cost tax payors to see if climate change has an affect on Snow Shoe Hares? It must be having some affect, since I have never seen one in WV.

This was interesting, but only one persons opinion.

So are you claiming our dependence on fossil fuels isn't a threat to national security?

Due to Tiredofits dishonest conduct on here. My time on here is going to be spent point out his serious lack of character.

Could it be said someone has a good character if they ask for something and when you give it to them(as we did in the past) they just throw it on the floor?

I think not.

The overriding thing now and the whole reason no proof WILL be provided is simply because of the manner in which Tiredofit is conducting himself.

He's not interested in the facts but is more interested in playing childish games.

No matter what we provide. Tiredofit will deny it.

But thats ok. He will eventually give up because I aint going no where.

I care about this issue and I want to honestly discuss it with out the bullsh1t that tiredofit brings into the discussion.

"How about ONE PROVABLE FACT PROVING MAN IS CAUSING GLOBAL WARMING"

Another is that there isn't just one provable fact in this complex issue.

Trying to distill this whole issue down into "one provable fact" leaves out too many key elements.

But leave it to a rightwinger to try and dumb it down to one single thing which if proof was provided they'd just deny it anyway.

"Why would you alarmists waste all this time posting nothing? If you had any proof you would have presented it."

The thing is we did. You denied all of it. And now you claim we didn't provide anything.

Tiredofit will always say that the proof we provide is false even if it is correct and truthful.

And these questions and that comment will always be in the mix. I'll make sure they show up after any of his posts.

If he was honest he'd answer them.

Him ignoring them just shows that they are right on the money.

True or False Tiredofit.

You will always say that the proof we provide is false even if it is correct and truthful.

Why can't you answer Myth's questions Tired?

Are they too difficult?

Have you figured out what a "fact" means to you?

There are lots of publications from recognized authorities in the field. I suggest you stop appealing to non-authority and read them. If you disagree with them, peer-review them in the science journals.

So Tiredofit, since you wrote that we'll "most likely" use less fossil fuel in the future, how do you suggest we prepare?

Besides isn't it your side saying how awful it is to be persecuted when they do something stupid like possibly dressing as a nazi if that was the exact case.

But the right does like to put out hit pieces and take things way out of context.

"Saying we need to get away from fossil fuels because they are running out would be a more believable and tangible excuse because the effects of it becoming more scarce is already being felt."

We should also move away from fossil fuels for national security purposes. It will happen. Even 2/3 of Republican-leaning voters think we should.
