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.

I think that gets to the root of many conservatives problem with this issue.

They try and tell you life is precious to them but it really isn't.

False hope though will lead you down dangerous paths though.

How many of them would think that it was gods will that we are in line to take a hit from said asteroid?

To me thats insane. It makes me wonder also.

If we knew for a fact an asteroid was headed toward the earth and its impact would incinerate the surface of the earth would they allow to hit if they could?

I mean after all it does figure into their end time predictions of fire and brimstone reigning down on the world.

Oh many of them would think that it was gods will that we in line to take a hit from said asteroid?

Its scary to think that some of them would think that way.

Now I say this with the thought that we would have a means of saving ourselves. We very well could not in the event it did happen. In which case their opinion really wouldn't matter.

I will say that I have often considered the religious types lackadaisical attitude to issues like climate change and irreparably damaging our planet's ability to support life as we know it as being immensely dangerous.

For them the solution to those problems will be solved when the almighty returns...sometime.

Its always not to far away for them interestingly enough. But yet they are never right about it when they predict it.

The end times are upon us they say.

But nothing ever happens.

I don't think Tiredofit grasps how small our world is and how wide ranging on it we are.

In addition to that he probably lacks the appreciation of the fact that its the only home we have.

Therefore we need to take care of it and by extension ourselves.

Ok...I'll give you the benefit of the doubt here. What is it about the well documented Severe acute respiratory syndrome that you don't believe about?

But yet Global Warming is true. You have admitted to that yourself.

You just think the dominant species on the planet is too small and puny to contribute to it.

Lol, I have heard many off the wall stories involving redheads but this was a new one.

I might recommend that if you are going to cite a story though, do more reading.

Redheads and even blondes have been "dying out" for centuries in crack pot news stories. Yet we are still here blessing the world with our very presence :)

Oh well what's to be expected when every single thing you say on here gets beaten back by facts.

You gotta have something to sling mud with I guess.

Hahaha! LOL! Tiredofit you stating that gingers going "extinct" and by proxy Kendell is hilarious.

If someone made a similar statement like that directed toward you..why you be be crying about how mean they were to you.

Goodness you hypocrisy knows no bounds does it?

For those that do not know, the Sun goes through a 11 year cycle process. This cycle will see the energy output of the Sun increase and decrease.

If those that believe that the Earth warming trend is all due to the Sun, then there should be a very easily seen causality between them but shockingly there isn't.

Why? Because the 11 cycle is one one factor in the overall climate. People need to get their head out of the hole that global warming=one and only one cause. Mankind is only one aspect of Global Warming but it is actually something that we can control at some level.

"Where did that come from one of your "self proclaimed" Climate scientists?"

Nope...NASA.

Do you know a better resource than NASA on this topic? Please..feel free to bring them up. I'm certain we all could use a laugh.

Thatsabsurd

"Let's pause for a moment and ask you this...what is causing this supposed "plateau" you claim exists? It can't be due to the Sun because the Sun is actually putting out less energy currently than it has in recent time."

This is exactly why its so easy to fool imbeciles with junk science

the sun is putting out less energy. are you that stupid. Where did that come from one of your "self proclaimed" Climate scientists?

@Myth- Tired is a hypocrite.

He won't believe some scientists and uses the excuse that they have an agenda and are govt paid.

But then he will support a faulty notion like the other planets getting warmer from who? Oh, yeah...scientists. Of course these very few scientists (from articles many many years old) never tried to say that what happens on other planets are comparable to Earth.

I've tried to get Tired to tell us why smaller, atmosphereless, oceanless places like Mars or Pluto is comparable to Earth and Tired runs away.

"There has been a plateau in warming over the last 17 years."

And that is factually untrue. Remember while you are posting your angry twitter-like posts that "global" warming means more than just one little area.

Let's pause for a moment and ask you this...what is causing this supposed "plateau" you claim exists? It can't be due to the Sun because the Sun is actually putting out less energy currently than it has in recent time.

"No warming in nearly two decades despite CO2 levels rising, NO cause and effect"

Sorry to tell you this Tired but no one has said that Global Warming is being caused only because of CO2.

"and other planets have seen warming in the recent past."

Show us a scientist that isn't getting govt funding that says this. If you won't believe in the people at NASA when they support man made global warming theory, why do you believe in these other scientists?

"No warming in nearly two decades despite CO2 levels rising, NO cause and effect"

I'm sorry to tell you this Tired but no one has said that CO2

Whew nearly missed this one.

" There is a small group of suppsosed scientist that pretend to speak for all fo science "

Um sorry but the profession of a scientist is broken up into a lot of different specialized and focused groupings dedicated to a myriad of topics.

I don't think climate scientists are presuming to be speaking for all scientists just the subject they specialize in.

Besides why distrust climate scientists but yet trust astronomers(the scientists that study planets,solar systems,stars etc)?

Oh silly me I know. Climate scientists aren't supportive of the positions you hold.More importantly they are in conflict with your parties politicians seeing as how the vast majority of conservative politicians have a stake in carbon based energy which is what is causing climate change according to climate scientists.

The astronomers I guess pose no threat to the oil barons.

Soooooooooooooooo?

Which is it? Is the earth truthfully not warming or is the earth warming due to the influence of the sun?

Now this is where you need to put on your good debater pants and deliver unto me the information that I am seeking to clarify my understanding of your position.

mythravere

Going further with that logic we come to this gem.

There's been no warming. OK!

But yet the earth has been for awhile now moving out of an ice age(an interglacial period if you will)which you agree with.

For that to happen there has to be warming. Which you said isn't happening. I mean its well documented the recession of glaciers this past century so we know the earth is warming.

Either you are stupid or you are a troll.

I'm hoping you're stupid. Because if you are spending this much time just trolling with this much inconsistent consistency then you must have a supremely boring life.
