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.

"There is a fact for ya Jimmy."

Actually, no..it's not a fact. Calling it so doesn't make it true Tired.

Curious, you keep saying "Jimmy" alot. Are you trying to garner an emotional response from one of my nicknames? You can do better than that..try.

As for evidence that CO2 does have an effect on the climate, I refer you back to NASA. They have many reports on the subject and you approve of NASA.

At least you did when they give reports that you approve of.

" I have as much proof of anything I have posted.."

Deflection, try again Tired.

You have made a claim, you are responsible to offer facts for that claim if you want to be taken seriously or have any respect for yourself as an intelligent being.

"of course the climate changes, always has, always will."

Hmm, seems someone is trying to form a strawman. No one on here has denied that climate changes.

The only denier on here are those that think the dominant species on the planet has not effect on the climate.

"Scientists who go along with the cause are rewarded...also with altogether billions in hard, cold cash"

No evidence that they get direction from anyone in the govt to say what they want.

Try dealing in facts for once.

"but because it is a justification for a government takeover of the energy industry"

You have no evidence of this conspiracy theory.

Exactly

Similarly, the theory of man-caused, catastrophic, global warming is embraced not because of any “science,” (that sham is for the “useful idiots,”), but because it is a justification for a government takeover of the energy industry, with massive increases in regulation, taxes and government spending.  The United Nations loves it because it inspires fantasies of the UN growing up to be a world government, with real government powers of global taxation, spending and regulation, all “to save the planet.”  Scientists who go along with the cause are rewarded not only with praise for their worthy social conscience, but also with altogether billions in hard, cold cash (government and environmental grants), for their cooperation in helping to play the “useful idiots.”  Moreover, many academic scientists are “progressives” themselves, and so favor sharp increases in government spending, taxes and regulation, because they are certain they know how to run your life better than you do.

Many of us Republicans won't go along with the demagogues. We want a seat at the table when solutions are being considered, and we may not get that seat if we practice balkanization.

As far as this being an issue that should only be addressed by the "socialist left," many Republicans disagree.

Republican pollster Alex Lundry wrote in the right-leaning Daily Caller:

"Americans believe global climate change is real. This includes 51% of Republicans who say the effects are already happening, or will happen shortly, or will happen in their lifetimes."

The polling I've conducted has convinced me of the necessity for Republicans to address these real concerns about climate change in ways that reflect our principles and priorities and satisfy public demand for practical solutions."
