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.

"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.

"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?

The facts absolutely mean god dam'd nothing to you!

But hey lets take a play out of Tiredofits book.

Its not up to me to prove my position. Its up to you prove yours.

Because without the politics clouding this issue...there'd be no question about it.

Your position is the weaker one.

The onus is on you to backup your claims.

Even if its laid out again as it has been in the past.

YOU'LL REJECT EVERY SINGLE LITTLE DETAIL UNTIL YOU'RE BLUE IN THE FACE!

Like I said. Your objections to this issue is out of political need.

You've been taken over by this "Us vs Them" mentality.

This aint football *******!

I mean just look at the Navy's attempt at making bio-jet fuel. Republicans shut it down.

Why?

All this talk of leaving this nation open to terrorists because of the border. Yet the need to have a fuel source for our armed forces that isn't tied directly into where we could be fighting wars in the future..is completely ignored.

" Yet you are willing to hand the govt complete control of the energy sector and you liberties"

Stop attributing things like that to people when no one has even said that was on their mind or has any possibility of happening.

I dont want that. I am sure everyone else doesn't want that.

What we do want is to see our current energy sources cleaned up and diversified.

And if it be necessary. By all means let the government help out in the development of alternative energy sources that are more stable and less apt to draw us into needless wars.

"The Doran paper has been criticised by many sceptics in the past,..."

"Appeal to authority of the best paid people in science but NO PROOF"

So when you copy/paste from wattsupwiththat website that is a cheap little place for your appeal to authority....what does that make you Tired?

"no proof at all, morons all."

Would that include you Tired because you offer no proof for your positions. ;)

Or they stupidly prescribe an issue to their political opponents erroneously.

Like has been done with climate change.

Also he knows full well that if he were to believe it then it would put him outside the boundaries of what is considered "proper" republican thinking.

He's a lemming. He's a conformist. And above all else he's not a freethinker.

Heck. We've all seen how he reacts to you labeling yourself a conservative. He calls you are fraud and acts as if your beliefs aren't legitimate.

Some people get so wrapped up in their "politics" it cripples their critical thinking and they become incapable of considering anything outside the bounds of their chosen political stripe.
