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.

Good catch, Kendall.

Even the climate scientist hyped by Tiredofit for political reasons believes, when she puts on her scientist cap, that atmospheric carbon contributes to global warming,

Another true believer, eh?

Tiredofit is hoisted by his own petard again.

That’s the bottom line, not politics.

Once again, Tiredofit, you show yourself, and distort what I wrote.

By saying “talking outside of her field,” I clearly meant unlearned in politics. You however, deceptively choose to ignore the qualification and focus on the catchall word unlearned.

"My research experience and interests include the science and societal impact of air pollution. In particular, I focus on black carbon (BC) pollution, which is a by-product of incomplete combustion, both natural and anthropogenic. BC contributes to climate warming and is linked to a range of health problems, including premature mortality." (Monika Kopacz)

So Tired, you agree with her that black carbon contributes to global warming?

We're talking past each other. I refer to the science, and you refer to the politics.

I refuse to be swayed by political hype.

I repeat: an overwhelming majority of the climate scientists most published in peer reviewed journals agree with the tenets of the IPCC.

That's the bottom line, not your politics.

LOL Harry you are a true believer, no doubt.

Do you know where she is now Harry?

So here’s the genuinely important part:

Among those scientists most published in peer-reviewed journals and most cited, a large majority agree with the tenets of the International Panel on Climate Change.

These scientists are expressing their opinions within their fields of learning.

“Harry, did you even read the quote?”

Sure I did, but I don’t consider “MONIKA KOPACZ Applied Mathematics and Atmospheric Sciences Harvard University Cambridge, Mass” an expert on politics, anymore than I consider Al Gore an expert on science.

You’ve only provided an opinion by someone talking outside her field of learning. Anyone can have an unlearned opinion. Unlearned opinions aren’t acceptable evidence.

So, yes, climate scientists might exaggerate, but in today’s world, this is the only way to assure any political action and thus more federal financing to reduce the scientific uncertainty.

Harry, did you even read the quote>

“Results=funding”

Tiredofit, You have made that claim again and again, and we have asked you to provide substantiation for your claim again and again. You have provided none.

Why do you keep repeating this claim for which you apparently haven’t a shred of evidence?

Of course that is already happening for other reasons. The right is just one big cluster phuck of stupid right now.

Whats funny is that the Tea Party is the force that is ripping it all apart.
