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.

Myth you are calling names, I am getting to you. If you cannot answer the question fine, I knew you couldn't anyway, just would have enjoyed watching your swing until Harry came to your rescue.

Care to offer a rebuttal to the article that I cited that you chose to ignore for some reason?

Pssst all you have to do is show me why its all wrong. But you won't do that.

Why? Psssst. I thinks its because you are an idiotic coward.

Like I said to Ithink. If you got the info and know its true why would you hold it all back and not set the record straight?

Because dishonesty.

For future reference you may want to ask me if that is something that really matters to me.

It doesn't. Missing glaciers now thats a whole nother story. The same with a multitude of environmental effects that can be attributed to a warming planet that I am still waiting for you tell me why its all natural.

Did I cite that poll or whatever as a lynchpin of my argument? I dont think so.

No what I did was point out that you erroneously cited Harry as talking about 97% of scientists as in all scientists from all fields of science. Harry mentioned climate scientists.

I was correcting you sir! ;)

its really not funny, its sort of sad to watch you as you pretend to understand what you are talking about and then try to bait Harry to come to your rescue when you get uncomfortable that we might all realize YOU are the DULLARD, psssst Myth we have noticed,

You really don't have a clue myth, its just one big ole math problem and you hope if you sit by the smart kid you can copy his work.

So I take it you DONT know about the method Cook used to come up with his 97 percent lie. Sharp mind indeed.........

Uh yea I think that could be categorized as a swing and a miss!

Tiredofit Harry didn't say scientists but this"I’ll leave it to the 97% of all climate scientists".

That would be 97% of scientists whose speciality is the climate.

Subtlety and nuance...something that takes a sharp mind to discern.

But of course completely lost on the dullards that make up some rightwing circles.

The graph below couldn't be clearer: when El Niño is in effect, global temperatures tend to go up; when its close cousin La Niña dominates, it has a dampening effect on warming.

This is a key insight, because often skeptics claim that we can't blame global warming on human causes. Rather, they say, climate change should be chalked up largely – or only – to natural variability in weather and climate patterns.

Instead, Trenberth says the two can't really be separated. “There’s a tremendous amount of natural variability that goes on," he said.

“When human-induced climate change is influencing things in the same direction that the weather, or the natural variability, is already going – that’s when we break records," he added. "That’s when we really see the effects standing out."

"No upward trend in 15 years myth swing and a miss."

You sure about that?

I am sure you are referring to Cooks analysis with the 97% claim, this is a frequent tactic of alarmists. Do you have any idea how he reached this conclusion? Do you understand how many people are actually involved in this?

What were the questions on the survey, who were selected to take it?

Tiredofit

97% of scientists??? Care to elaborate on how many people that represents? What is the sample size?

I think this a good point to state that I feel your whole point in this little debate on here isn't based on disagreeing with the facts about climate change.

Its purely political in nature.

Rightwing marching orders went out and stated that to be a good little Conservative one has to resist this issue because...what else...socialism.

You are just standing in lockstep with your brethren!

Jesus Christ! Why is it so hard to understand that we have dumped a huge amount of a greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and that it's causing an upward trend in global temperatures?

No one can predict exactly the sea level rise or temperatures etc. But projections can be made from where temperatures were at in the past to where they are now and where they will be if the upward trend continues. The can model effects of this temperature increase too.

Also no natural phenomenon have been found to be the culprit of this.
