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.

:) love it when he has to resort to nicknames or insults. When he begins to act like O'Reilly or Hannity...it means he knows he is losing the argument.

I plan on enjoying everyday I can. Why wouldn't I?

Remember, your "Think local, screw global" mentality means you better make sure you put out your camp fires and clean up after yourself.

"Didn't screw it up"

Yeah..ya did. In your analogy, you gave a cause for the weight gain. That means you know what is causing global warming, or your analogy is stupid.

Do you know the cause and can you prove it?

Kendall78

You notice that he never acknowledged he screwed up the analogy. Lol

Kendall78

And don't forget your motto, Think local, screw global.

Posted 267 days ago.

Kendall78

Umm...yeah, you do realize you didn't use my analogy right? You switch it in a very obvious manner.

Why wouldn't I have a good day? Seeing you screw this stuff up everyday gives me the smile I need to start the day :)

I'm guessing that your personal motto on climate change is, "Think local, screw global."

When you answer my questions, I may feel the need to answer yours.

"to claim 2014 was the warmest on record"

Answer this, was 2014 warmer than 2004? 1994? 1984? 1974? 1964?

If the answer is yes, then there is a problem...right?

" it has been adjusted and manipulated so how can any of it be accurate?"

Do you have evidence that the vast majority of data has been adjusted or manipulated? Heck, I would be happy to see you prove that a simple majority of the data has been manipulated.

"If man was causing global warming, why did it magically quit 18 plus years ago?"

It didn't. If you gain 5 pounds every month for two years and then quit gaining...aren't you still fat? You have those odd notion that warming has to be perpetually growing at a constant rate without any deviation.

Where did you come up with that?

Posted 268 days ago.

Kendall78

"And not a bit of what you say can be linked to a man made cause."

Where do you come up with that? It's obvious it does. Why are you unable to comprehend that?

Maybe if you could give your evidence that clearly shows that all the climate change we have been discussing comes solely from another source...can you? I highly doubt it.

Stillhere, learn to use quotation marks in the future if you are going to quote someone. Learn the basics.

Nah, you are wrong about the margin of error. Try again.

".8c rise from 1880, margin of error +- .1 C."

Wait, are you trying to say that .1 > .8? Because with the margin of error even included...it's still a rise.

harryanderson

"The total warming is within the margin of error."

Wrong.

The total warming is far outside the margin of error. When you add data points to a set, the cumulative error decreases. We now have 135 data points, or years, in the record, so the margin of error is very small.

Quite, Kendall.

Since 1880, global surface temperatures have increased 1.4 degrees F., which is enough to upend the balance on which we depend.

According to NASA:

“Global sea level rose about 17 centimeters (6.7 inches) in the last century. The rate in the last decade, however, is nearly double that of the last century.”

“The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have decreased in mass.”

“Both the extent and thickness of Arctic sea ice has declined rapidly over the last several decades.”

“The number of record high temperature events in the United States has been increasing, while the number of record low temperature events has been decreasing, since 1950. The U.S. has also witnessed increasing numbers of intense rainfall events.”

htt p://climate.nasa.gov/evidence/

NASA lists others.

The earth’s climate is like a baby. A few degrees of temperature rise disrupts it.

"Earth’s average surface temperature has warmed by about 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit"

What's the difference between 33 degrees and 31.6 degrees...the difference between solid and liquid.

What's the difference if you are one inch from the cliff's edge or one inch beyond the cliff's edge? Falling to your death.

What's the difference between saying a small word like "yes" or "no" when your significant others asks, "Does this make me look fat?"

A small difference can mean all the difference Stillhere.

"lets start with the admitted maring of errpr in NASSA data"

And how does that disprove all the facts showing climate change due to humanity is happening?

That's right...it doesn't.

You seem to lean on ignorance as your main answer to everything. I suppose you also believe in the God of the Gaps. You obviously have no real scientific answer to why the climate is changing, so you approach the problem with your head in the sand and basically say, "Nope...not happening..nope nope...not happening."

"Most of the southern slave owners were republicans !"

Evidence? I'm just curious how your conjured up that statement.

The relevant fact is that 9 of the 10 warmest years in the record books have all occurred since 2000.

What are the odds of that being an accident?

Global warming hasn't stopped by any means.

Global warming hasn’t “stopped.”

9 of the 10 warmest years on record have occurred since 2000.

htt p://w ww.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/global/201413

The RATE of increase has slowed, but the increase continues.

The warmest years on record are, in order:

1. 2014

2. (tie) 2010 and 2005

4. 1998

5. (tie) 2013 and 2003

7. 2002

8. 2006

9. (tie) 2009 and 2007
