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.

Good to hear that you can keep up, then it won't be a bother for you to answer why you think the Earth and its climate is comparable to Mars and Pluto.

And why do you trust the govt to tell you what the climate is on Mars and Pluto but not on this planet?

Now show us you understand.

Tired...were the questions I asked too complex for you? I could simplify them if you need it.

But whats really to be expected. The rightwing movement has taken the collective stupid pill.

The news is just loaded with righties getting caught in blatant lies and the peddling of falsehoods for their own gain.

Look at the nutter making the statement about the Earth and Mars having the same exact temperature.

You'll say any dang thing to get your way.

But the kicker is this. By trying to show you the truth I may be doing more harm than good.

Because for some reason you and people like you tend to dig in when faced with facts that are contradictory to what you WANT to believe.

You don't take the new information and use it to inform and correct your beliefs.

It just reinforces your false beliefs.

I dont think its this issue as much as the fact that I get a huge kick out arguing with you low information types.

Its rather fun and entertaining.

Its like arguing with chemtrailers or other conspiracy loving folks.

Its just hilarious the lengths you guys will go in explaining away something that is in conflict with the world views you hold.

A black man becomes president? Well its a marxist,socialist,communist conspiracy to destroy this nation. And all the other make believe crap you guys cook up to solidify your world view.

Tiredofit makes claims that there is an agenda behind what scientists are saying about climate change on earth. You know they are doing it for funding yada yada. Therefor he doesn't believe them.

But that skepticism is strangely absent when considering the potential warming of other planets.

I mean couldn't the astronomers studying those planets be seeking funding too?

LOL! Grade A tit he is!

Do you trust the govt to tell you what the climate is on Mars and Pluto but not on this planet? Why?

Posted 575 days ago.

Kendall78

And why the Earth is comparable to Mars and Pluto couldn't be clearer.

Earth is larger that either Mars or Pluto.

It's orbit is much shorter than either Mars or Pluto.

We have not even witness an entire orbit of Pluto yet, so we don't even know what a Plutonian year would look like.

So again I ask, why do you think Earth is comparable to the planet Mars and dwarf planet Pluto?

Your seem to believe very old news stories that Mars and Pluto are warming up with very little data as to why or even if there is a warm up.

However you do not believe the data from thousands of sources saying that the Earth is warming up faster in the last 50 years than the previous time period and the reasons why it is warming up.

Explain why this isn't hypocrisy?

"as you dont try to insult me"

I spoke the truth, how is that an insult?

"Of course the earth has warmed since the last ice age"

Deflection...try again.

"I cannot keep pointing out the obvious to you."

You point out the obvious that no one is talking about. Try addressing the questions I actually ask and not the ones you create in your own head.

"Walk outside your trailer and tell me if you see a mile thick ice sheet"

More deflection.

I am also curious if you will admit you are a hypocrite.

You won't believe NASA when they say the Earth is getting warmer but you do if they say Mars and Pluto is.

Posted 575 days ago.

Kendall78

I dare say you are a liar Tired because I have not denied that the available data could (note the word...COULD) show an increase of temps.

However, what you fail to understand was my question on how you can say that Mars and Pluto are comparable to Earth. Please try it again if you can.

Now read this carefully, I know you have diffculties with reading comprehension, why is it that you won't believe the Earth is getting warmer with literally thousands of thermometers giving raw data to support that but yet you believe data from four rovers and one satellite?

Posted 575 days ago.

Kendall78

Please try to explain how Mars and Pluto are the equivelent to Earth?

The sizes/mass are not the same.

The atmopsheres are not the same.

The energy they get from the Sun is not the same.

Reflactive quality isn't the same.

The collective knowledge of climate patterns on the planets are not the same.

Posted 575 days ago.

Kendall78

Ok, you don't believe the accuracy of thousands of Earth based thermometers in the past but you will believe a handful of rovers and a satellite around Mars as to the temperature there?

Exactly why do you think Pluto is warmer? Is there some independant group not affiliated with a govt agency that is measuring temps on dwarf planets?

Posted 575 days ago.

Kendall78

Exactly why are we discussing a planet that is farther away from the Sun than ours, with little atmosphere, no oceans and have not been accurately observed like our world has?

Oh yea thats like 130 some degrees away reality by the way.

"In a condemnatory speech last week against the Obama administration’s new Environmental Protection Agency carbon emission regulations, Kentucky state Sen. Brandon Smith (R) claimed that man-made climate change is scientifically implausible because Mars and Earth share “exactly” the same temperature."

OMG! LOL!

So Tiredofit do you agree with what he said?

Whoo Boy the face of stupid right thar.

Kendall78

Not a difficult question, tell me why you want to know if I had a Govt job or if I have NOT had one. If you don't wish to answer fine but I'm not going to answer til you do.

"WHY would one have to go to such lengths if there was not something to hide"

Probably because they are not hiding anything and you just won't accept their findings.

"Secondly I doubt the FOIA request would do much good outside the US"

The conversation was mostly about NOAA which is within the US. Focus Danielsan...focus.

When I used 110% it meant that you go above and beyond in regards to your bias toward climate change.

In other words your bias is in the realm of irrationality.
