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.

Since most of us don't have the time or inclination to obtain the specialized training required to evaluate climate change, we rely on the testimony of expert witnesses.

Our courts rely heavily on expert testimony in scientific matters. "An intelligent evaluation of facts is often difficult or impossible without the application of some scientific, technical, or other specialized knowledge. The most common source of this knowledge is the expert witness..."

Wise people will follow the example of the courts in weighing evidence. They've refined the art over centuries.

Those who refuse to consider the testimony of 97% of the most-published and most-reviewed climate experts are, in effect, discounting the best, most common source of scientific knowledge available to them.

And that is foolish, my friends.

The bill Nye experiment is wrong on many levels, ONE. The percentage of co2.is uncontrolled and way way over the trace levels found in our atmosphere. TWO. Glass filters UV light unlike our atmosphere and it does NOT pass through the glass. So there are two huge reasons it's flawed

"The 911 terrorists did all their training and planning under Clinton's nose."

That might be true but their leader. Osama Bin Laden. He was helped out and trained under a Republican President.

As a nation we messed up big time making and breaking alliances with terrorists.

Al Qaeda is on thing. Isis on the other hand? They wouldn't hesitate in killing millions of us if they could.

"Quite a differnce between 9 months and 6 years."

Very well..when is the cut off then? I mean, in 93 (I believe) we were attacked at the Trade Center by Al Quada. That was a number of years prior to Bush....so it would be wrong for Republicans to bring it up in regards to the War on Terror right?
