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.

As far as websites or new articles on the topic, credible information again should include scientists specializing in Climatology.

Polling and petitions should always be scrutinized in these arguments.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist. I do not believe that the funding in question has made any measurable amount of climate change scientists skew their information or evidence.

I am open to any credible scientific source for information. Such sources on the topic we are discussing should include the research and findings of actual climatologists and not those that have doctorates in other fields. I mean, who cares what a Doctor in British Literature thinks about climate change..right?

Or are a pseudo government agency

Kendall, what sources do you look at that don't derive funding from the IPCC or UN or Some other enviromarxist organization.

That article you cited didn't say anything about if global warming is or is not happening. Just that the ice melt of that peticular area was not due to anthropogenic global warming but climate variability.

And by the way, the rescue ship is now stuck, too. The people were safely put on another boat, thank goodness.

"Antarctic ice shelf melt 'lowest EVER recorded, global warming is NOT eroding it'."

Myth keeps thinking he needs to educate us about the Polar Regions. He and a few others here are the ones who need to read up.

I have no faith in the IPCC. I merely observe the information from them and other sources and arrive to my own conclusion on the matter.

You might consider that the problem isn't that there are people that look at the evidence and conclude that climate change and global warming is happening.

But that the opposition has failed to explain why global warming and climate change are not influenced by man.

Most of humanity isn't covered in snow. The world is bigger than select sections of the US.

There is no amount of evidence that will shake you from your faith in the IPCC and funding scam

Some people cannot see GLobal Warming cause they are buried to their arses in snow, ice and record colds. GEEZ you guys are funny.

Some people cannot see the forest for the trees. Then there are those that can't see the forest because they got their face up against a single tree.

Weather events aren’t climate.

According to NASA, “In most places, weather can change from minute-to-minute, hour-to-hour, day-to-day, and season-to-season. Climate, however, is the average of weather over time and space.”

ww w.nasa.gov/mission_pages/noaa-n/climate/climate_weather.html

And, according to Politifact, “Data from NASA shows 13 of the hottest years on record have come in the last 15, and by a different data set produced by NOAA, 14 of the hottest years on record have come in the last 15.”

ww w.politifact.co m/truth-o-meter/statements/2013/feb/15/barack-obama/barack-obama-says-12-hottest-years-record-have-com/

That’s time and, since NOAA and NASA study worldwide trends, space, which makes it a CLIMATE trend. What happens in Parkersburg at a particular time is WEATHER.

Myth every feel funny calling anyone ignorant>??

I bet if the record high was in 1994 and record low in 1950 would like it a lot better. Just Google parkersburg average temps and you can find it, or are you waiting for the IPCC to issue it ;)

Oh and not I don't disagree with it. If its correct..who knows where you got that info.

Tiredofit do/can you understand this.

The polar regions are still cold..sorry brrrrrrrr.

Seasonal weather patterns can and do bring the cold down to us. Which is what is happening monday.

I mean do you really think that our local just gets cold?

Where do you think that cold is coming from.

Subtle temperature changes can have very large and detrimental effects on the biospheres of this planet.

Subtlety and the noting of it isn't something you rightwingers seem to be good with.

Its either black or white or on or off with you guys.

Where's the inbetween? Wait there is none.

I know your really want this to be an embarrassment for those who believe that man is causing climate change but it really really really isn't.

If you look at the ship in those pictures..obviously and icebreaker with a hull hardened against the ice...you will see that it was captured by pack ice. You know a whole bunch of ice chunks that come together and can surround and sink vessels in some cases.

Shackleton's expedition for example.

Being that the Antarctic hasn't seen changes in temperature like the northern polar regions this can still happen there. Its can still happen in the Arctic too.

Your comments smack of ignorance on the subject.

Sorry but its true.

Myth, I posted some data, do you disagree with any of it?

Posted 207 days ago.

mythravere

Tiredofit I am not taking personally at all. But when I see you making asinine comments on a topic like this and are missing obvious details and facts....I really like pointing that out...totally for the sake of argument.
