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.

mythravere....time to gouge my eyes out...the visual is killing me. you owe me for the dinner i just lost. 8-)

If warmers are right, why do they need to silence skeptics? Charles Krauthammer writes about "the myth of settled science" in the Wahington Post, and the cult tries to get the paper to not publish his column. Just like Holder and the Justice Dept and the IRS behave.

Where did freedom of speech go?

Nah...I wear a thong...backwards....looks like Jim Henson designed a muppet while he was tripping acid!

But hey! Its what righties do these days. Someone on the left says something..heck if they even yawn it seems...the right gets a collective panty bunch going on.

Oh well...throwing fits..if it makes you feel better then be my guest.

LOL! What a silly post.

Lets see Iran with a nuke might be lucky enough to off one of our cities. Maybe two. But they'd soon be dead. They nuke us we immediately nuke them as soon as we find out it was them. Never mind the fact that I don't think they are stupid enough to do that anyways.

Climate change on the other hand? What if that lead to a significant change in the rainfall totals for the bread belt area of this country? Either way you get crop failure and with that comes mass starvation. So the potential of a couple million getting killed by a not so likely Iranian nuke versus the possibility that we could starve to death if climate change bits us hard?

I see what you are doing. Naughty naughty !

Trying to stir the pot. LOL!

Continued...... I feel so safe because we have a Sec. Of State who says climate change is the worst WMD. It 's so comforting to know he puts it ahead of Iran and their nuclear program, isn't it? I am so upset by GW and worried that the sea level might rise an inch or two. But never fear, mighty man is in charge and will handle the wind, temperatures, and water masses. Harry will prevail.......as long as we pay no attention to the snow and cold, and remember that it is not climate.

Our security is in the hands of complete idiots.

Biden, Hagel, obama, and Kerry, the EPA,and the senate democrats. And seasoned with radical judges.

We are having some more weather today. Totally unrelated to climate, of course. I mustn't upset harry and the climate cult.

Far beyond the time this planet will be habitable by homosapiens.

There will always be seasonal changes... the tilt of the earth.

Something that needs to be considered but isn't is this. Will the climate transition to previous norms if global warming is stopped?

The climate is a dynamic system. I personally do not see the climate going back to how it behaved in the past. Sure we might cool the world but the weather patterns may never go about their seasonal business the same as they did in the past ever again.

Its the chaos in the system that's the kicker.

It would certainly take more than half a century for the glaciers to recover.

Well I think what they are doing is setting a goal for carbon reduction that would bring it down to levels seen within the past half century. The exact time frame I'm not sure about though.

@myth, "but instead of doing just whats necessary we instead go to far and cause too much cooling."

Back when a certain nutso was on here that went by Lily, she/he/it was always going on and on about the carbon emissions and such and that was might complaint as well. How do we know when enough is enough? In some sense, when we are talking about climate change and man's effects on it..we are in one way talking about terraforming right here on Earth. How do we as a species decide what is cool enough or hot enough for Earth?

moderation. from what i have read, it appears that water and air...or the movement thereof have tha main influence on our weather. temperature is a key ingredient in creating the water cycle, the creation of high and low pressure air masses as well as regulation of climate. the less green areas we have also tend to absorb less of the solar induced heat as well as the absorption of co2 and release of o2. i agree that oceans have a great deal of impact on our weather in that oceans along with other bodies of water make-up the majority of the surface of the planet. i found it interesting to read about how far north the tropics were prior to what we now consider normal. that is what's perplexing in this discussion. to me temperature while having the power to "rock our world", i find myself more concerned with the polluting nature of non-naturally occurring actions by man. i have optimism that the earth can heal itself as evidenced by the shrinking of the hole in the ozone layer.

lts- without the influences of volcanic eruptions and asteroid impacts, aren't ocean currents the main influences on earth's on weather systems?

btw....thanks for asking the question. sometimes, most if you ask my wife, my mind is miles ahead of my ability to articulate its thought. kudos to mythravere for deciphering my apparent ill-fated attempt to convey a thought.

planet will prevail. interstingly enough our planet has endured many changes to its thermal well-being and has ended up presenting us with nothing more than a new reality in which we have to endure to exist. given the choice...i must prefer the warmth to the cold...hence my geographic choice of residence.

harryanderson, myth pretty much summarized the intent of my comment. the comment did not take into consideration the removal of pollutants that affect our environment. instead i focused on the temperature effects on our environment and weather. when one considers that the dramatized effects of warming, even at a moderate 1.3 degree per 100 years (1880-2012), how so would the reverse to square one, much less a drop equal to the rise, have on the environment and climate? if in fact we are in the midst of a third ice age, how will the drop in global temperatures affect our planet and will it yield the desired results temperature wise? in terms of reducing pollutants, the obvious answer is it will have a positve effect on planet earth. while i have no doubt that some of our actions are not the wisest, i have confidence that given the opportunity the earth will recover. i am not so inclined to believe, that when economic and political interests are at play, that the best interest of our pl
