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, deflect mislead and continually lie , lie ,lie ! Evidence that the republican brain washing is working on some of the low IQ crowd !

Like I said , sticking ones head in ones bum wont make it go away ! Just because you don't like the consequences doesn't make denial a viable strategy !

Facts about Global Warming *****Temperature increase. For the next 2 decades, 0.2 deg. C (0.4 F) temperature rise per decade, slightly higher later in most models. The models are all different and respond differently to different assumptions. For the end of this century, IPCC provides 7 best estimates (for 7 assumptions) ranging from 0.6 - 4.0 C (1.1-7.2 F). Warming is likely to lie in the range 2-4.5 deg. C (3.6-8.1 F), with a most likely value of about 3 deg. C (5.4 F). Since the 1800s the temperature has risen 0.76 deg.C (1.4 F). The warming is to be greater on land, in high northern latitudes.

"predicted the Arctic would be ice-free this summer."

Congrats...you shown that a single man was incorrect in a prediction.

But how does this counteract everything that we know and have seen in regards to Climate Change? Oh yeah...it doesn't.

You do realize that just because a prediction didn't pan out, that doesn't mean it's proof against the theory itself right?

I mean, a person could "predict" that humanity will evolve into a being with a IQ of 1,000 in 200 years. If that didn't happen, would that mean evolution isn't true?

Ignoring the problem and sticking ones head up ones rectum wont make this go away !And if you want to make light of politicians , there's much more material than can ever be used courtesy of George "W" !

"we are not in an ice age so yeah climate does change."

No one has implied that climate doesn't change. not one person.

"once again I have demonstrated that he doesn't have ONE no not ONE single fact"

Actually, I have given facts. I have given citations.

The only thing you ahve proven is you have no facts, no citations and no coherent theories why the global temps are at all time highs.

"Now he is trying the ole, PROVE that man DOESNT cause it."

No..I'm not trying that at all. I am asking you to prove that CO2 doesn't have the attributes that would make it absorb heat energy.

I asked you why you trust Florida State University?

I asked you for your theory on why the climate and global warming are not following after historic trends if it's not due to man.

I have a feeling you have no answers to these questions.

"The PROOF you lack is that MAN has caused it"

Actually no...while climate does change of it's own accord (no one ever says it doesn't) the current changes in global temps and climate do not fit in the models of the past.

The only difference? The growth of mankind and our technology around the world.

Now if you have an evidence or even coherent theories as to why the global temps and climate are going outside established historical norms....please tell us why and give us your evidence.

"Geographers Link Tornado Strength To Climate Change"

Why do you believe Florida State University Tired? Wait...is this an appeal to Authority?

Are you being a hypocrite...again?

Kendall78

Name calling Tired? Have you ran out of copy paste already?

I have put up a lot of information that you ignored. You on the other hand have offered no facts, no sources and no original thought.

"17 years of no increase in temperature"

Ithink...you do realize that the temperature has been higher than average for the last 17 years right?

Like I explained earlier...if the murder rate of a city jumps by 10% every year for 20 years and then levels off....did the problem go away? No...it's still there.

"is NOT about climate rather its redistributive socialist propaganda."

Look at Tired showing his true colors again by trying to make this about politics. He just wants to move his agenda forward by ignoring facts.

"Slowest tornado season on record"

Weather is not Climate. Another fail Tired.

"No global warming for 17 years"

Incorrect, global warming continues. Ignoring the Oceans and the fact that the globe is hotter than it was 20, 50 or 100 years ago is rather closed minded.

"Second slowest fire season on record"

This has nothing really to do with climate. Now if you might compare long term drought..then you might have something.

"Four of the five snowiest northern hemisphere winters have occurred since 2000"

Which shows that climate change is happening. Thanks for the help with that.

"Coldest summer on record at the North Pole"

The North Pole isn't the whole Earth. Fail

"Highest August Arctic ice extent since 2006"

Ice amounts does not disprove that the Globe is warming. Fail

"Record high August Antarctic ice extent"

Antartica is not the whole world. Ice amount does not eliminate the fact that the Earth is warmer now than 20 years ago.

"No major hurricane strikes for eight years"

Weather and Climate are not the same thing. I believe the deniers love to point that out when it serves their needs.
