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.

And its still here ! !!Here is the research you deny exists ! !!! research that is not funded by our government ! ~~~~The dependence on fossil fuel energy sources since the industrial revolution has undoubtedly shaped economic prosperity for the developed world. However, an unfortunate by-product of fossil fuel combustion is the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), an important greenhouse gas that is known to influence long-term climatic variations through its ability to absorb infra-red radiation.

Human emissions of CO2 have resulted in atmospheric levels higher than any period over the last 20 million years. The continued emission of CO2 will lead to widespread climate change related impacts. ~~Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) UNSW Australia, Sydney NSW 2052 Australia

"The use of fossil fuels most likely will become less advantageous as time goes on and they most likely will phase out for the most part. My opinion."

That's what I've been saying. They'll phase out for a number of reasons.

"However the current scare mongering and push for govt takeover is not acceptable to me."

I couldn't agree more, especially about the government takeover. Those of us who oppose a takeover must prepare or own response to the "phase out" you said is "most likely."

It's foolish to ignore a "most likely" future, isn't it?

See you later.

"I have no vested interest in the sale of fossil fuels."

I have a large vested interest in the sale of fossil fuels. So do Exxon-Mobil, BP, and Shell. And we've all accepted that CO2 released into the atmosphere causes global warming.

I told you I wasn't going to waste time looking up when I admonished someone.

I told you I did. Do you believe me?

Tiredofit all I can tell you is that you have actually allow information no matter how much you dislike its meaning..you have to allow it to inform and change your mind.

Acceptance of the truth is the key.

So far no truth has gained any acceptance by you. And I doubt that any will be accepted. Ever.

We've laid the case out for global warming. You've rejected every single thing we have put on the table. And your own position isn't consistent.

So theres that...

You want to see provable facts. I cited 43 scientific papers. Read them. If you have a problem with their conclusions, take it up with the experts. Write your own peer-reviewed paper.

I'm not going to look it up, Tiredofit.

I told you I did. I can think of at least 3 others here whom I've corrected.

And I believe I may have disputed myth on this. Have I, myth?

"There may be a day when renewable energy is feasible, its not NOW."

Well finally something we do agree on.

Posted 104 days ago.

harryanderson

Yes. I have admonished others on here beside you.

harryanderson

""There may be a day when renewable energy is feasible, its not NOW."

That didn't answer the question. Again, do you agree we should reduce our use of fossil fuels in the future?

harryanderson

Have I called you offensive names?

harryanderson

"I don't disagree with any of the last few reasons you cite for getting off fossil fuels."

So you agree that we should burn less fossil fuels in the future?

Here's how the Bible instructs us.

"But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife."

A person doesn't have to be a Christian to see the wisdom in that.

We don't need demonize one another.

Consider me and you, myth. We have opposite foundational principles. I'm a Christian and you're an atheist. We have debated that and neither of us has converted the other.

But for all that, we've never resorted to name-calling, and I've come to respect you. That's as it should be.

I disagree. He is interested in winning. He's so interested in "winning" that he's willing to forsake common decency by calling others foul names. And even try to get other posters to attack one another.

Which leads into three possibilities in regards to your motivations.

You are wrong and know you are wrong but putting a show to save face.

You are just being argumentative and contrary just because you can.

Or you actually think you are right. Which given your style of discourse leads me to believe that if this is the case then you are insane.

Tiredofit the foundation of your position on this issue has so many cracks and voids in it. Its hilarious.

You must be mentally deranged to try and argue the way you do. Ignoring facts about this issue and about your motivations(you never address those). And then you demand we prove our supposedly false position while you have to prove nothing which according to your is the truth and is backed up by facts that you know while complaining we are misinformed. Meaning that you have a way to resolve this debate. Which showing that they are correct is the real point of any debater.

But you are obviously not interested in winning this debate because if you were you would have shown concisely why you are right.

I try to get my information from neutral sources that appeal to reason, not emotion.
