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.

At least Obama did look into Putin's soul like some people did and get taken for a fool.

Too bad obama didn't listen to Palin about Russia. She was right on th money. So was Romney.

What has obamy been right about? Nothing!

You have it all wrong myth. We like Fox and Rush,too, because they agree with us on issues. My brain is quite capable of deciding what I believe, and what I don't.

But if I followed someone it sure wouldn't be MSNBC communists.

Heck whats really pathetic is that if a conservative expresses any sort of views counter to what every other conservative is believing at the time....they get labeled a fraud etc.

There's no freedom of thought.

You either tow the party line or you get out.

I would like someone to explain how any type of understanding can be had with people like that?

As far as I am concerned no understanding can be had.

Its either their way or they highway.

Rather dictatorial don't you think?

Then they have the gaul to equate those who don't see eye to eye with them as being tyrannical or whatever catchy phrase thats en vogue for them right now.

The people that harbor that sort of disposition are disingenuous and use it as a means of undermining any real discussion on the issue.

"Sarah Palin isn't an elected public employee,ex-teacher."

Yea you're right. But she is a conservative "leader". She talks. The righties listen.

She's a grade A panderer.

She's made herself a product to be consumed. And boy do the righties lap it up.

Whats bad is that when people like her say stuff. False stuff. There's no issuing a correction. There's no telling them that they are wrong and this is the truth.

Trying to set things straight just makes them believe the falsehood even more.

And that has been demonstrated in spades on these very forums.

You lay out everything the shows man has a role in changing the climate. They dig in even deeper. Deny what you say. Or ignore it. Then keep on asking for proof.

Its the old trick of moving the goal posts.

There is nothing that anyone can say or bring to the table when someone is so locked into their own position that they are unmovable from that position.

Fox News climate change coverage is now 28% accurate, up from 7%

An analysis of cable news climate coverage finds Fox News 28% accurate, CNN 70%, and MSNBC 92% ~~~~theguardian. com

Rightwing news etc. Says climate change is a hoax.

Then you guys come on here and repeat that. And every other falsehood thats thrown out there.

And going back to Fox News. There is not getting around it. Roger Ailes has an agenda.

His agenda though lacks a lot of facts and loves to make baseless attacks.

Which the right eats right up.

A study did find out that people who watch Fox(and in my opinion this applies to other rightwing news sources because they operate in a similar manner)are far less informed on the issues that people who get their news elsewhere.

In other words watching Fox makes a person dumb.

Never said dems are excused from such actions.

It just so happens that if ones looks at what is peddled to those on the right...its bought hook line and sinker. And those doing the peddling are making a fortune off of it.

Just saying that because if all you hear and see is just what you want to see and hear...you guys are setting yourselves up to be deceived.

A snake oil salesman doesn't care who he sales to. He just cares that there are chumps out there that will buy what he is selling.

This brings up an interesting angle that would be nice to know the details of.

A lot of older people get caught up in scams. I wonder what the breakdown along political lines is for that. Who gets scammed easier. Liberals or Conservatives? Being that its seems that its the older conservatives who are the ones raising the biggest stink I have to wonder if their opinions aren't the result of buying to much snake oil?

"They have a tendency to create "news" by their own hand if you will."

Yeah because if you listen to the commentators on The Five, you would think all Obama does is play golf, somehow plans on the complete destruction of the US as we know it but yet doesn't know what he is doing at all.

As we can see the itinker has been listening to faux and rush again ! Gets all wound up and then cant seem to think !

" The never ending parade of controversies and conspiracies" show up because NO Plan Obama and his bigoted and blind administration create them.

Our country and the world are in terrible danger because of his blunders. You won't have to worry about the temperature and tides. You wnd all of us will be burned to a crisp.

You want to talk about wealthy politicians,Myth? Check out the recent disclosure of Jay Rockefeller'S finances.

He comes "home" to WVa about 11 times a year. He flies on a private chartered plane and bills us, the taxpayers, for it. Look up the huge amount. As wealthy as he is, he is cheap.

Have any of Palin's expenses come out of your pocket?

Going back to Fox News. Some of the talking heads on that show say some mean and vile things.

How could someone act in such ways.

Oh I know. Its all about the money. Or should I say funding.

Although I will say this. I do like Shepard Smith. He's a good guy in my opinion.

Heck I even like Glenn Beck these days.

But then again. Appealing to the rightwing mindset is an industry in of itself.

You people dont realize that a big chunk of those who say they have your best interests in mind really only have what's in your wallet in mind.

They make the appeal to your sensibilities and then you just fling your hard earned money at them and they make bank on it.

Dont believe me? Look up financial disclosures of Tea Party groups and people like Sarah Palin who appeal to your sensibilities.

Look at how much money they bring in. Look at how much money is used for "expenses". Then look at how much is actually going to support conservative causes and candidates.

Some of these people and groups are keeping 75 to 90 some percent of the money they bring in. The rest goes to helping with the causes and candidates that are dear to you and yours.

Its not hard to find out what Fox is focusing on. They have a tendency to create "news" by their own hand if you will.

Besides. Pretty much all of rightwing news outlets operate in the Fox manner.

We know what's being focused on because the never ending parade of controversies and conspiracies shows up on places like this site here.

Ithink. People like you and Tiredofit wouldn't have the opinions that you do if you didn't consume "news" that is pretty much identical to the opinions you express on here.

Rightwing news does a pretty good job of making a big deal out of things and then fanning the flames even hotter.

How do you know what "Faux" focuses on? You must have to watch it to get real news, too, don't you, ohweirdone?

"any person of reasonable intelligence would know i don't endorse those views"

HAHAHA...it took you enough time to come up with that lie Tired. So basically you are saying you are a liar. That's the type of person that says something as fact but don't mean it.

Oh you are a card Tired.
