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.

"Warming has ceased in the last 15- 17 years."

Be more specific if you can. Do you mean warming has ceased in the atmosphere? In the Oceans?

Is the last 17 years warmer than the 17 years that came before it?

You still haven't defined what you will consider proof in these arguments. Don't you know what you will consider proof?

"Show me how to prove a negative"

No one has asked you to prove a negative.

Is this your fallback plan? Keep claiming it's proving the negative so you won't have to do anything?

"And this schmuck says he's interested in honest debate?"

He constantly lies.

Lol, it does seem like he has confusion over what proof and truth is.

Not one more iota of proof will be given to you unless you backup your own claims.

But that's a tactic you use to hide from any kind of criticism.

Come on ,Prove to me that this study is biased ! Just one fact , that's all I ask for !!! I didn't think so !

The fact is if you are right Tiredofit and I am wrong. Then the facts support you not me.

Ergo you have the upperhand in this debate.

I can not fathom why you will not provide those facts that make you right.

Furthermore complaining that proof isn't provided to you while refusing to provide your own proof to back up your own assertions is highly hypocritical.

research that is not funded by our government ! ~~~~The dependence on fossil fuel energy sources since the industrial revolution has undoubtedly shaped economic prosperity for the developed world. However, an unfortunate by-product of fossil fuel combustion is the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), an important greenhouse gas that is known to influence long-term climatic variations through its ability to absorb infra-red radiation.

Human emissions of CO2 have resulted in atmospheric levels higher than any period over the last 20 million years. The continued emission of CO2 will lead to widespread climate change related impacts. ~~Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) UNSW Australia, Sydney NSW 2052 Australia

Where does Faux get their "research" ?????? Who funds that ????? Who's agenda are they following ????? And most of all Who's agenda are you following ???? Since you all are holding to the official Faux news line-o crap I would like to see the facts you're working from !

I've already shown you non-biased research, so there is the proof you've been crying about ! Now you tell us all whose research are you citing or is it more of your imaginary crap again !

270 pages worth of arguing. The vast majority of which was of me and the others putting info on the table that proves our assertion.

The information you seek as been offered up in spades. You just choose to deny it or ignore it.

So you asking for information and then making out like we have none because we aren't giving it to you is tremendously disingenuous.

But that's par for the course when dealing with you.

Its just one of the many tactics you use to try and shutdown/control this debate.

What" REAL FACTS" , you haven't presented anything that is close to real ! I've presented a study that wasn't funded by our government that states climate change is happening and man has a role in it ! Now why don't you present your "FACTS" that you are so very proud of ! Oh wait , YOU DONT HAVE ANY !!!

Still you just keep on telling yourself that !!!LOLOL! I've already shown you non-biased research, so there is the proof you've been crying about ! Now you tell us all whose research are you citing or is it more of your imaginary crap again !

But then yet agains we have another problem.

In the past he has stated that even though there is warming man isn't responsible for it.

But now he is stating that there is no warming.

We know the planet is warming. There just is not denying that.

But these inconsistencies are interesting. And so is his refusal to back up his assertions.

Either he is being contrary. Or he has no facts with which to back up his assertions.

His assertion being positive. Meaning they have facts to back them up.

Our assertion being negative. Meaning not the truth therefore lacking in the ability to be proven as true.

Edited for clarity

But then it gets even better. You know Tiredofit says that we are wrong and that he is right.

His facts being positive. Meaning they have facts to back them up.

Our facts being negative. Meaning not the truth therefore lacking in the ability to be proven as true.

Now one would assume Tiredofit is interested in "winning" this debate. Furthermore one would assume that since his position is the true one it'd be very easy to prove his position.

All he has to do is prove that he is right.

Which is to show why all the warming can be blamed on natural causes.

But for some reason he won't do that.

Hmmm?

mythravere

Aaah man you gotta love it. For months on end we repeatedly laid proof after proof on the table.

Of course Tiredofit it rejected all of it.

Now that we have figured out that he will reject any proof we put on the table. We stop providing it because you know lesson learned.

But now Tiredofit is asking for proof(that we already provided)and making it looks as if we dont have anything to show as proof. Or that we are refusing to show proof.

And this schmuck says he's interested in honest debate?

LOL!

"I don't want to take your 100 bucks"

Oh there is very little chance of that. You won't go out to conduct even a simple chat with a real person.

"PROOF that mans production of co2 is warming the planet SIMPLE"

It is that simple. Odd how you don't understand it. Guess you are less than simple ;)
