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.

“SO if we are NOT getting HONEST RESEARCH for our dollars, why put more into it?” It’s tragic that some government research goes for purely political purposes, like research used in Congressional investigations. Should we stop dishonest Congressional investigations? Yes, but I know not how. I desire honesty in government. But, to the point at hand, I know of no instances where climate scientists used government funding to produce dishonest research. Can you cite any examples where government dollars have provided dishonest research?

The fact that the NOAA Climate project chair said it is enough for me. Shows an attitude if nothing else

Now I’ll answer your questions. I’m not afraid.

“we exaggerate to prompt political action and gain funding, do you deny that”

I can’t deny that some have. I think we need better models, but nobody should engage in deceptive tactics. I believe in honesty. I notice your source didn’t provide any examples of funding obtained by deception. Do you know of any examples of funding obtained by deception?

Well being obtuse is your forte but I will show you how I DID answer your question

Well, Stillhere, I never took a vow to stay away from here. I’ve just been too busy to play.

I see you didn’t answer my question, even though it followed logically from your post. Nevertheless, I’ll provide my answer. Yes, we need better models. If the models we’ve been using are accurate, it’ll cost us a lot of dough. Given the risks involved, we must have a good ability to predict future climate before we commit to a course. (Inaction is a course.)
