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 will prove man has no role in climate change."

Your positive statement came before anyone else on here. You are to prove your statement first and not weasel out of it by pretending anyone has to go first.

"CAN ANYONE GIVE A SINGLE PROVABLE FACT SHOWING MAN IS CHANGING THE CLIMATE"

To you? No, because you won't accept anything that doesn't fit into your objective.

If I were in your shoes and I felt as threatened by the spectre of fighting climate change as you do.

I would be trying to change people's minds and make a difference for my cause!

But you aren't even in it for that.

This has turned into a game on here.

You will not provide anything that backs up your professed beliefs on this issue. Even though according to you they represent the truth.

And if you indeed do not want to see action taken on this issue you should be more than happy to correct those you accuse of being misinformed with said facts that again supposedly make you right.

But you will not do that.

In fact when I have brought that up in previous posts you ignored that little angel.

So I guess we know your motivations now. Or rather what they aren't.

The debate is over for people that look at the facts and see that what the climate scientists are saying is true.

On the other the debate is still raging for people like you.

People that have their position and will not acknowledge that facts that are contrary to their position.

Ok Tiredofit. If god exists where is he?

And as a bonus question. Can you prove that gods other than the one you believe do not exist themselves?

The dependence on fossil fuel energy sources since the industrial revolution has undoubtedly shaped economic prosperity for the developed world. However, an unfortunate by-product of fossil fuel combustion is the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), an important greenhouse gas that is known to influence long-term climatic variations through its ability to absorb infra-red radiation.

Human emissions of CO2 have resulted in atmospheric levels higher than any period over the last 20 million years. The continued emission of CO2 will lead to widespread climate change related impacts. ~~Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) UNSW Australia, Sydney NSW 2052 Australia

Since reducing our use of fossil fuels is desirable for a number of reasons, what do you think of the revenue-neutral carbon tax proposals?

We have given you several and you refuse them , now please answer the question! Where does Faux get their "research" ?????? Who funds that ????? Who's agenda are they following ????? And most of all Who's agenda are you following ?Pretty easy so why do you delay ? Because you are obviously spouting the right-wings talking points so why not admit it !

Those proportions come from a look at Fox News coverage of climate change in 2013, when UCS found 50 segments to examine for accuracy. Of those, 72 percent “included misleading portrayals of the science." The breakdown goes further than the network-wide coverage, delivering a sharp elbow to one of the Erik Wemple Blog’s favorite shows on cable news:www ,ucsusa. org/scienceorspin

Still avoiding the answer aren't you tiredbrain ? Where does Faux get their "research" ?????? Who funds that ????? Who's agenda are they following ????? And most of all Who's agenda are you following ?Pretty easy so why do you delay ? Because you are obviously spouting the right-wings talking points so why not admit it !

The big problem with this issue is that well monied interests cast a significant amount of doubt on this issue.

Thats unfortunate because of people like tiredofit.

People like Tiredofit have taken that doubt and cocooned themselves in it and refuse to come out.

And I think it should be said that the doubt thats been put out there. Is totally unfounded.

And as far as the "proof" you did "provide" its one tiny controversial subject.

As such there are still large amounts of evidence supporting mans role in causing an uptick in our planet's temperature.

All you did was go after the low hanging fruit.

I expected as much.

I will be specific now.

You say man has no role in causing climate change therefore that leads one to assume that you believe its a natural phenomenon.

Ok provide proof of that position. But I must add for the record that you go back and forth between saying that warming isn't due to man and say that there hasn't been any warming at all.

Thats a glaring inconsistency on your part.

I hate to inform you of this but you didn't provide any proof of anything.

You took one issue that has nothing to do with your position and absolutely nothing to do with the information I requested and floated that as your proof.

You even plagiarized it! OMG LOL!

Copy and pasting will be disregarded.

"SO after dealing with all the morons in the room does ANYONE ELSE wish to provide PROOF that man is causing a change in the climate?"

Man you really showed your arrogance with post. Good job pal!

I don't reject the existence of god out of hand.

There just isn't any kind of proof to support the existence of any ones god at all.

The only other sentient beings we know are ourselves.

And in case you haven't disregarded that science too. Astronomy tells us the universe is quite large and the potential for other sentient beings who might quite possibly be older than us is highly likely.

Religion is nothing more than a security blanket for the ignorant and fearful.

But now onto other things.

"something that Kendall mocks"

Why do you lie so much? I never have mocked God. I've mocked you quite a bit but nothing sacrilegious about that.
