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.

Or they stupidly prescribe an issue to their political opponents erroneously.

Like has been done with climate change.

Also he knows full well that if he were to believe it then it would put him outside the boundaries of what is considered "proper" republican thinking.

He's a lemming. He's a conformist. And above all else he's not a freethinker.

Heck. We've all seen how he reacts to you labeling yourself a conservative. He calls you are fraud and acts as if your beliefs aren't legitimate.

Some people get so wrapped up in their "politics" it cripples their critical thinking and they become incapable of considering anything outside the bounds of their chosen political stripe.

Harry. Seriously. Don't even bother going to any kind of explanation about this issue with Tiredofit.

You and me both know that no matter how good of an explanation it is...he'll just reject it without a single consideration to its veracity.

Tiredofit has fully proven that his opinion on this issue is heavily politicized. And thats the angle he is coming from. Thats the reason why he thinks its all a hoax.

Oh god lol! Just for giggles. Whose authority told you it was all wrong Tiredofit?

Apparently some authority has appealed to you because something had to inform you in such a way that it caused you to field the opinion that you do.

And that authority is very very well funded.

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..."

ww w.law.cornell.edu/rules/fre/rule_702

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.

Isn't it interesting how removing a bad guy over there...think Saddam or Bin Laden. Isn't it funny how it just makes things worse?

"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?

Oh my did you say reasonable ???????? Quite a step away from the right-wing crap fest ! There isn't anything reasonable coming down that road !Just a whole lotta scandal and bullcrap !

Like I said. No common sense..Quite a differnce between 9 months and 6 years. You can't come up with anything reasonable.

"it had been a whole 9 months since"

It sounds like you hold the previous administration responsible for things that happened under another man's watch. So I guess that means you won't whine when people bring up Bush then.

Good to know.

Posted 89 days ago.

Wow, it had been a whole 9 months since Clinton had run the show for 8 years. Kendall, your lack of using common sense on this forum is amazing.

The 911 terrorists did all their trainingand planning under Clinton's nose. Too much Monica distraction.
