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.

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

You kep saying I am making excuses but I have asked many many times for your definition of what you will consider "proof".

When you give that definition, then I am certain it will be provided to you. As long as what you call proof is reasonable.

So Tired...will you please tell us what you would consider proof? Or will you deflect, call people names or deny deny deny anything people will show you?

"I KNOW there is no proof in there and so do you."

That would be a lie. There is no proof you will accept is more accurate.

Oh..if it were possible...I would love to do a contest in geography against you.

But alas, we know you won't come out of your momma's basement any time soon.

Oh the ego...I make an error in where Europe begins in relationship to Crimea and Tired thinks he is natrually better in general. He wasn't even thinking of Crimea when he made his Europe comment.

I would bet $100 that he didn't even know what the Bosphprus Straits were when I mentioned them earlier.

You are a card Tired. Now let's get back on topic. You can dwell on Crimea back in the other forum.

"lol that made NO sense."

Why?

And please keep checking back Tired...it's a fun game getting you all tightly wound up :)

There is tons of pages showing that we have offered facts. Sadly for you, I don't think there is one page worth of facts from your side of the argument.

"Man has nothing to do with changing the climate NEGATIVE ASSERTION.."

And I have never asked you to prove this now have I?

I have asked you to prove that the current change in global temperature is natural as you have claimed but yet you cower from it.

I believe it's because you know there is something not natural about it but won't admit when you are wrong.

You ahve hundreds of pages worth of information where people have supplied you with facts.

In chosing to ignore them for whatever reason you might have, you have only shown that you are inept in mature intellectual conversations.

"I will remind you that a negative cannot be proven"

I have never asked you to prove one.

I have asked many times to prove what you actually think is going on with climate change and yet you always fall back to the way you dealt with problems in your youth and call people names.

"Those of you who advocate a change in our energy policy are those that must make the case for it."

Oh, I see you dropped "radical" from your statement. That was wise of you since it made absolutely no sense when you said it before.

The case was made and backed up with evidence. That's why the energy policy is changing in a steady and responsible pace.

It's funny that the deniers lie to say that the climate change is natural as it is a good thing, but then seem almost frantic when people want to try and get the atmosphere back to a more natural state.

"a smart arsed punk"

Ah..the childish insult. Wouldn't be a night of Tired's ranting without one.

"I have asked for ONE PROVABLE FACT and you fail time ad again."

No, we haven't failed at all.

Kendall78

"Just because you cannot make your case, doesn't mean I have to make one for you."

Actually our case was proven many time on here.

You refusal to back up your case with facts shows you really have none to offer.

Kendall78

Yep...you have laid no proof down at all Tired.

"Do you have evidence (not opinion) that funding from the govt had some kind of note that told the scientists to say something?"

Of course he doesn't. He has the really good ability of being able to have a thought about something..believe its true..but yet have no evidence to back it up.

"but it IS Funded by GOVT"

And a big "SO WHAT?" must be asked.

Do you have evidence (not opinion) that funding from the govt had some kind of note that told the scientists to say something?

YIREDBRAIN, TO USE THIS TIME TO MAKE YOUR CASE WITH PROOF.

"THEY advocate for a radical change in our energy policy"

No we don't. You lie.

Well thats patently false. We know the climate is getting warmer. We have a good understanding of what that extra heat can do. And we have pretty good idea how the effects of that extra heat can impact man.

What we don't know is how it will affect day to day weather. Or seasonal weather for that matter.
