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.

"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.

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.

Whats it like Tiredofit knowing full well that your position on this issue is a direct result of politics. Not facts.

You can deny it all you want but you position that the world isn't warming is not supported by facts.

Heck you don't even have a consistent position on the warming. I've seen you bounce back and forth from saying there is not warming to saying the warming isn't caused by man. That its all natural in origin.

Except its not a religion. Claiming that it is a religion is just a means of smearing those who believe that it is an issue that needs to be dealt with. And its a tactic meant to stop any kind of real debate on the issue while also sowing doubt about said issue.

People like Tiredofit are just tools in achieving that goal.

Tiredofit is someone who is not interested in facts.

He has his opinions and is not interested in anything that could possibly contradict those opinions.

He laments there is no decent debate only when saying so suits his contrarian ways.

He hurls insults and makes wild accusations about peoples political leanings but if someone does the same to him....Oh my goodness he's just so hurt.

Its just so hilarious watching him squirm on this issue.

Good grief Tired, could you at least copy/paste stuff that doesn't make you seem like a sheep.

"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 matter if the science of global warming is all phony… climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world."

What comes in between "phony" and "climate" Tired? Please provide the full quote if you are able but I bet you won't because you can't.

"NO warming this century and you guys still hang on to the LIE"

Which 14 years averaged a higher global temperature Tired?

1900-1914 or 2000-2014?

You should have no problem with this, you only have 2 choices.

"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.

Which was hotter...the past 17 years or the previous 17 years Tired? Why is this so hard for you to answer?

"Many climate scientists are currently working to figure out what is causing the slowdown"

Slow down? Since when is slow down the same as going down where it should be? If you were speeding toward a wall going at 100 miles an hour...does it matter if you slowed down to 99 mph?

"A peer reviewed admission that “global surface temperatures did not rise between 1998 and 2008?"

Yes but why do you ignore that those years averaged higher than the ten years before.

And Tired...why the odd numbers? Why 1998-2008? Why not 1990-2000 or 2000-2010?
