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.

Maybe you know where all the Global Warming zealots got the 97 percent figure, even your president has cited the number.

Kendall shouldn't you be studying BE verbs and their use so you don't make another ridiculous statement>? I was asking Harry since he is the one that stated the 97 Percent figure. Thanks

I think if you answer around half of the questions directed at you in the last few weeks, maybe Harry or others might tell you where the info comes from. Oh wait..they already did but you won't read anything that goes against what you believe in.

Where does the 97 percent come from? Where did you get that figure?

I thought this was an interesting news story that talked about "marine ice sheet instability": w w w.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-25729750

“Don't want to defend your 97% now do ya harry?”

Earlier this afternoon, I cited a study that backs up my comment.

I can cite more, but it might be pointless, since you said before, Tiredofit, that “it’s a political (agenda), not a scientific discussion.” I see no sense in citing scientific work to someone who states that science has no relevance to the topic.

You may have changed your mind. It seems you now want to discuss scientists’ conclusions.

Have you become willing to consider scientific evidence? If you are, we have a basis for discussing scientists’ work.

I am terribly sorry that you cannot see the humor in that you whine on and on about your perceptions of a person's math skills and whatever else your delusional mind grasps a hold of, but yet you do so in a way that shows your own vast ignorance.

But really, instead of shoving your head in the sand on these topics, offer up an actual scientific counter to them.

I personally think you know you are wrong and cannot bear to admit it. Otherwise you would have offered up evidence to the contrary.

I guess you took your grammar cop hat off Kendall.

@Harry- it's all part of their head in the sand approach to science. If they don't like it, they ignore it. They are no better than Obama ignoring all the bad that is Obamacare.

Of course I made a mistake on the use of tack vs tact, I admitted it and moved on.

Kendall, are you now grammar cop? Well if I had said MATH AND SCIENCE you might have a point however I said MATH OR SCIENCE. Hmmm. Numbnuts is it?

The scientific evidence grows stronger.

Geochemist James Powell found and reviewed 2258 peer-reviewed “climate articles” written by 9136 authors published between November 2012 and December 2013. He found exactly one article by a sole author that, in Powell’s words, “rejected man-made global warming.”

htt p://blogs.scientificamerican.c om/the-curious-wavefunction/2014/01/10/about-that-consensus-on-global-warming-9136-agree-one-disagrees/

Of course, we shouldn’t expect the overwhelming conclusions of scientists who publish in the field to change the opinions of those who think it’s a political rather than a scientific discussion.

"how global warming hysteria leads to bad science, pandering politicians, and misguided policies that hurt the poor"

No one is being hysterical on here. Most people are citing good science. No one here is pandering to any politicians.

It's just a request but please quit spamming the site with article titles without any discussion on your part.

"Hope math or science is NOT involved."

Try "are" next time numbnuts before you try to correct others.

LTS. Ahh myths ok j just enjoy needling him when he starts with his rants about how dumb everyone that thinks lime he used to. His hate for what he perceives as the evil right and all things Christian are pretty funny to me when you get him all wound up.

mythravere: you wrote "Hey I might make 11 bucks an hour." i just wanted to comment that i think one should never feel ashamed or feel the need to defend or justify their wage to anyone. honest work is honest work. it shows that you have convinced someone or some entity that you offer a service to them that is worthy of compensation. as much as you use the scripture in less than palatable ways sometimes, the parable regarding compensation seems rather appropriate and often times forgotten in the argument by some concerning "Fair Wage".

The funny thing is that with the job I am in or at least certain aspects of it. You want people to do the job right. Otherwise someone could get hurt or killed.

As a matter of fact I know of a guy right now who complains he isn't paid enough and his job quality is subpar because of that. By his own choice.

They pretend to pay him and he pretends to work.

Think long and hard about that sport.
