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- he talks about Marxism so much...you would think he would jump at the chance to tell us what he thinks by answering these simple questions. Odd that he doesn't isn't it?

Well, not really but I'm trying to be polite.

Marxism- "the political, economic, and social theories of Karl Marx including the belief that the struggle between social classes is a major force in history and that there should eventually be a society in which there are no classes"

Just curious Tired, what is it that you find offensive personally about Marxism?

Do you think that the conflicts between various social classes have not affected our collective history?

Then you go off and get offended when someone calls you a coward?

LOL! But yet you smear others whose opinions differ from yours by making out like they are an enemy of the state etc?

Talk about some chutzpah.

Hubris and hypocrisy all rolled into one.

By hey at least your ramblings have entertainment value.

Whoa Whoa WHOAAAAAAAAA!

You mean to tell me that you Tiredofit are interested in a decent debate?

Yep that thar is a metric ton of bullchit.

Incontrovertible facts have been laid out against points you lay on the table that straight up show that your points are wrong.

You either ignore or deny those facts.

A truthfully honest debater will take any information they learned in the debate and change their positions to reflect this new information.

Failure to do so is dishonest and marks you more a troll than an decent debater.

You just argue the same points over and over with complete disregard to any corrections anyone has offered you.

In other words you're just a heavily opinionated loudmouth.

You are still allowed to answer the questions Tired if you really desire to have a conversation on the topic. Otherwise, I guess you can continue in your attempt of playing the "Wounded Commenter"

"you bang out insults"

I have not insulted you at all. I have merely stated facts that you do not like. This all started from the following:

Marxism- "the political, economic, and social theories of Karl Marx including the belief that the struggle between social classes is a major force in history and that there should eventually be a society in which there are no classes"

Just curious Tired, what is it that you find offensive personally about Marxism?

"The courage it must take for you to insult people over the internet..."

I guess you have forgotten my offers to buy you a beer and have a mature talk over these political topics. How convenient.

I'm certain you'll manage, cowards learn to live with all sorts of things. After all, you have learned to manage your ignorance quite well.

"do you have a problem with Marx?"

I think I asked you about your views on Marxism. I refuse to answer you about anything till you answer.

A majority of Americans, even Republicans, support addressing man-made climate change. How will we do it?

Do we want to recognize the problem and take personal responsibility for our CO2 emissions or do we want to deny and delay until big government comes knocking on our doors?

"Market considerations are one thing, market distortions introduced by govt is another."

K street lobbyists seek to have government distort the market to the advantage of their clients.

And who spends the most money on lobbyists?

I want to change the last sentence in my last post, and say, "I've seen it done."

Here's another prediction:

The coal interests will abandon the little people who now support them when the coal runs out.

They've always done it before.

Coal and petroleum interests wield too much power in the US, according to leftists.

Government wields too much power in the US, according to rightists.

I agree with both. I'm skeptical of any bureaucracy, whether corporate or government, that seeks to rule.

"The leftwing socialists see the chance to take over the energy sector"

I predict the energy sector will change drastically because of market considerations. More and more homeowners in sunny climates are installing solar panels. Investors are building large solar installations like Ivanpah in the desert. Windmills are popping up in the windswept areas.

As a result of these "all of the above" solutions, power generation is becoming less centralized. This is good news for conservatives, since decentralized infrastructure makes it harder for "leftwing socialists...to take over the energy sector."

Conservatives should cheer this decentralization. Big business/big government types, however, should fear it.

And the market is doing it.

"I've seen no evidence of sampling bias in this poll. Have you?"

Of course he hasn't.

"I don't think the sample size is representative of the broad spectrum of America opinion..."

Do you have any evidence to back up what you "think"?

I've seen no evidence of sampling bias in this poll. Have you?

harryanderson

So, Tiredofit, are you questioning the poll's methodology, and claiming the sample isn't representative of Americans?
