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.

"We can turn the country around following tea party principles "

Tea Party principles would damage this nation. People of certain beliefs and backgrounds would lose rights and xenophobia would reign supreme.

"There is no evidence whatsoever that race has anything to do with the resistance to Obama"

" Why did the people take the house from the dems if they want Obama to further his agenda? If they are wise to the right as you say, why is the house secure and the Senate now in play? "

Two things. Gerrymandering and Citizen United.

In this day and age money does everything and when near unlimited amounts of money is allowed to influence politics guess whose voice gets heard the most?

Courtesy of conservative judges by the way.

Hmmm, Tired...could you explain the Marxist aspects within the Senate? I'm not asking you identify a political party but what aspects of Marxism is there in the Senate.

Oh and the contrariness!

Do you guys realize how utterly ignorant that makes you look?

Years ago. Get our POW back! Obama does. Why'd you do that for?

Jesus H Christ?

The black man really freaking damaged the collective conservative conscience.

Thats why even if you get the senate back you won't have it for long. People are getting wise to the idiocy coming from the right.

And just so you know. Things in this country are no where near as bad as you doomsayers believe they are.

The biggest problem this country has is the right wing goody two shoes who only want things to go how they see fit and when they don't get their way they throw a tantrum and try to stop any progress.

Goodness the stupidity you guys ooze is nauseating at times.

Take back control of the senate?

BY ALL MEANS PLEASE DO!

That'd be like giving a drunk the keys to a car.

The right is in no position to lead this country.

To many megalomaniacs who only care about their "freedoms" and no one elses.

By all means put those fools in power and you will see a clusterf***k of epic proportions.

In fact the fiasco that would come from that would sign the death warrant of conservatives in politics...or what would more than likely happen is that everything they said they would do they wouldn't do.

Good idea, Tiredofit. Let's do it.

@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?

How can anyone believe thus corrupt "science" is my question.

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?

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

"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?
