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.

"No warming in this century????"

Explain that please. Has the last 14 years been warmer on average than 1900-1914?

Yes or No

Tired, your NOAA quote is practically wortless because it doesn't mention what exaggerations there are if any.

Three key words in the statement are: "opinion", "might" and "sometimes".

You offer no facts Tired, try again.

"Gingers do tend to be emotional, like women."

Wow..mixing racism and misogyny all in one sentence.

"Youre just wrong on the facts.."

In what way? You have yet to show how the facts are wrong.

Please try to show how they are wrong.

NOAA YES LETS SEE WHAT THE HEAD OF THE CLIMATE PROJECT HAS TO SAY.MS It is no secret that a lot of climate-change research is subject to opinion, that climate models sometimes disagree even on the signs of the future changes (e.g. drier vs. wetter future climate). The problem is, only sensational exaggeration makes the kind of story that will get politicians' - and readers' - attention. 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.

Youre just wrong on the facts, but don't let that bother you, no one paying attention to a thing you post anyway. No harm done.

"NOAA Confirms Model-Defying..."

How about you give us some NOAA citation for this statement of yours Tired. But since we know you won't..here is some stuff from NOAA's people:

"Since 1976, every year including 2012 has had an annual temperature above the long-term average. Including the 2012 temperature, the rate of warming is 0.06°C (0.11°F) per decade since 1880 and a more rapid 0.16°C (0.28°F) per decade since 1970, according to the 2012 annual report from NOAA's National Climatic Data Center."

"It's personal to you if someone doesn't believe the same things."

No, it's just offensive to rational people when others spew random factless statements around and want to be taken seriously. Take the hint.

Wow, you guys are really invested in this. It's personal to you if someone doesn't believe the same things.

NOAA Confirms Model-Defying Global Temperature Stagnation…2012 Was Among Coolest In 21st Century By P Gosselin on 7. August 2013 The political beauty about climate data is that it can be easily manipulated in order to fool the public.

Let's play Tired's game shall we..

"Since I am primarily a data guy, I’ll confine my comments here to discussing recent climate trends but note that the global climate has warmed...and it will likely continue to warm for another 200-300 years" (S. Fred Singer)

Tired....do you even realize that all you posted is some credentials about a man and NOTHING that throws doubt into mna made global warming?

Guessing? Yes..that is scientific Tired. HAHA.

Asked what he would like to see happen in regard to public opinion and policy on climate change, Singer replied, I would like to see the public look upon global warming as just another scientific controversy and oppose any public policies until the major issues are settled, such as the cause. If mostly natural, as NIPCC concludes, then the public policies currently discussed are pointless, hugely expensive, and wasteful of resources that could better be applied to real societal problems.
