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.

PRINCETON, NJ (January 3, 2011)—S. Fred Singer said in an interview with the National Association of Scholars (NAS) that “the number of skeptical qualified scientists has been growing steadily; I would guess it is about 40% now.” Singer, a leading scientific skeptic of anthropocentric global warming (AGW), is an atmospheric physicist, and founder of the Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP), an organization that began challenging the published findings of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in the 1990s. SEPP established the Leipzig Declaration, a statement of dissent from the 1997 Kyoto Protocol that has been signed by over one hundred scientists and meteorologists.

"So-called global-warming alarmists are in a frenzy after the latest climate data confirmed the Earth actually appears to be entering a potential cooling trend, sea-ice cover in Antarctica.."

Will you at least have the balls to cite your sources because everyone on here knows you are not clever enough of a writer to come up with this on your own.

"Environment: The United Nations on Friday released its climate change report, which says that scientists are 95% sure that man is causing Earth to warm. Well, we're 100% sure this finding deserves a heaping dose of ridicule."

Tired, how much ridicule does the 5% that don't think global warming is manmade deserves? Surely they deserve even more yes? Maybe a huge heaping dose?

"No warming in this century????"

Explain that please. Has the last 14 years been warmer on average than 1900-1914?

Yes or No Tired.

Govts keen on control and Marxist socialists masquerading as environmentalists wish to create a crisis that leads the lemmings, and u know who you are, clamoring to surrender you freedom for a little false security.

Climates change over time, that is not in dispute. Thank God for it as I don't like glaciers in my yard

Don’t look now, but maybe a scientific consensus exists concerning global warming after all. Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewed Organization Studies. By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem.

"The true scientist has no need for appeal to authority—he uses his expertise to give clear explanations for anyone seeking them."

Only problem with that is when the people "seeking" the explanation denies anything and everything the scientist is explaining to them.

Nothing can be explained to the person who doesn't want to understand and whose mind is already made up.

That'd be you tiredofit and others like you.

"In freshman logic, we are taught that this is the fallacy of “appeal to authority.” The true scientist has no need for appeal to authority—he uses his expertise to give clear explanations for anyone seeking them."

But aren't you appealing to the authority of Forbes Magazine? Eh? Tiredofit.

You appeal only to the authority that supports what you believe.

"3. They intimidate, rather than explain. Well they make lame attempts at it in some cases such as here."

LOL! Everything is intimidating to rightwingers.

"Here are three ways the Climate Scientologists abuse science.

1. They use manipulative language

If you are ever asked the incoherent question “Do you deny climate change?” you have found yourself a Climate Scientologist."

Climate change deniers don't use manipulative language at all. (deadpan)

"The natural CO2 flux to and from oceans and land plants amounts to approximately 210 gigatons of carbon annually. Man currently causes about 8 gigatons of carbon to be injected into the atmosphere, about 4% of the natural annual flux. There are estimates that about half of man’s emissions are taken up by nature. But is that true? Are there variations in the natural flux? Could those explain the CO2 increase?"

Doesn't matter what the percentage is if our emissions cause problems.

Not to mention the other way of arguing for less use of fossil fuels.

THERES ONLY SO MUCH LEFT!

So why not get started on developing renewable energy sources?

Tired, are you simple?

"If you are ever asked the incoherent question “Do you deny climate change?”"

That is not a incoherent question. Do you even know the definition of "incoherent"?

"They intimidate, rather than explain."

Exactly how does this not apply to you and your vast array of insults?

"the fallacy of “appeal to authority.”"

That's all your arguments are on here Tired. You cite a scientist that you agree with and that's all you do. You don't explain anything.

.     They won’t admit when their theory fails

If it disagrees with experiment it is wrong. In that simple statement is the key to science. It does not make any difference how beautiful your guess is. It does not make any difference how smart you are, who made the guess, or what his name is – if it disagrees with experiment it is wrong. That is all there is to it.

All the while ignoring the fact that we a pumping thousands of tons a day of carbon into the atmosphere that wasn't there 50..100 years ago. While stating that there hasn't been and will not be any changes from altering the chemical balance of the atmosphere.
