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.

Deny all you want but most say its there and its not going away !

Nevertheless, there is a strong, credible body of evidence, based on multiple lines of research, documenting that climate is changing and that these changes are in large part caused by human activities. While much remains to be learned, the core phenomenon, scientific questions, and hypotheses have been examined thoroughly and have stood firm in the face of serious scientific debate and careful evaluation of alternative explanations.”

76 out of 79 climatologists who "listed climate science as their area of expertise and who also have published more than 50% of their recent peer-reviewed papers on the subject of climate change" believe that mean global temperatures have risen compared to pre-1800s levels, and 75 out of 77 believe that human activity is a significant factor in changing mean global temperatures.

To recap, Tired claims that the reason for the current heating of the Earth is that it's part of the natural cycle of the planet.

He offers no facts to support this claim in any way. This is counter the notion that mankind is effecting the planet, which is funny since Tired has said that mankind can effect the Ozone Layer.

Of course you don't have to prove that Tired, people can observe the illusion of the Sun setting everyday.

But, one cannot observe the positive statement you made saying that the current heating cycle of the Earth is like the past.

Now you can either provide proof or admit you are unable.

I am sorry you do not like it that when you make a positive claim that you should back it up.

So under the circumstances, you are unable to prove that the current cycle is anything like the past cycles? Therefor the current cycle could be way off kilter from the norm for all YOU know.

You posted that mankind effects the Ozone layer and therefor effects the way the planet absorbs heat.

Were you lying Tired or do you believe that?

"Because Algore says is NOT proof just saying"

I agree. Why mention that again?

"Logic would dictate if we had periods of warming and cooling throughout the earths history it would up to you to PROVE HOW ITS DIFFERENT."

That's where you would be wrong. You are making a positive claim that the past cycle are the same as now. Prove that thye are..if you can. I doubt you are able to or even will try.

"The fact that ice a mile thick used to lay atop Ohio does not phase them."

No one has denied that the Earth goes through cycles. Heck, the entire planet was covered in ice at one time.

But what does any of those time periods have to do with the here and now Tired...offer up some proof.

And proof was given many times to you. Denying it doesn't make that fact disappear even though you wish it would.

This is such a fun game. Tired tries the old "tell a lie enough" ploy and all we need to do is refer back to all the past pages with the very evidence he denies exist.

It's also cute how he ignores that my last statement was factual. If he believed it wasn't, it would be easy to prove it wrong.

"So the lack of warming.."

What lack of warming? The last 20 years are hotter than the previous 20 years.

Sure there is, you just won't accept them.

It's a tragedy really how willfully ignorant you are.

Guess you are "France" of this forum eh Tired?

"Still waiting for..."

Guess you will be waiting as long as it takes you to go back over the pages of this forum.

Could someone tell me what Fox News said incorrectly about global warming?

Doesn't the mean global temperature change every year? Can't it go up or down? I wonder how many of these climatologists who listed climate science as their area of expertise tell us what the temperature will be in Parkersburg on this day next year?

And you have zero facts to prove your opinion ! All you have is whatever Faux tells you !

Like I said even if god said that climate change was a problem tiredbrain would dispute him !Now maybe if Sean Hannity or one of the other blathering idiots from the right would finally agree then maybe tirebrain would say OK !
