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.

Didn't find any reputable study to back your claim. Could you please give a proper citation.

Government $400,000 study shows tea partiers are higher in scientific understanding. They sure got fooled. Don't watch for this news on your alphabet soup channels. Either google or look at Fox.

Sort off the topic but is there some unspoken rule that you either have to accept everything science says or absolutely none of it?

Tell us Harry why scientists have the origins of mankind so wrong and why you reject those theories? Fraud

“Oh Kendall take a hard look at the UN and IPCC see what they have to gain.”

I did take a hard look at the IPCC. It claims “It reviews and assesses the most recent scientific, technical and socio-economic information produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of climate change.”

I believe that’s what they have to gain—to assess the latest data and provide a knowledge base for policymakers of all political persuasions.

I’ve seen no credible evidence that the IPCC was set up to rob us of our freedoms, as some folks have suggested.

When discussing what climate is normal , it’s useful to consider the past record. A study this year found “Surface temperature reconstructions of the past 1500 years suggest that recent warming is unprecedented in that time.”

****sciencemag.or g/content/339/6124/1198.abstract So, if the warming is unprecedented over the last 1500 years, it’s safe to say the recent warming isn’t “normal.” Since the climate is warming at an abnormal pace, we should be thinking of how we’re going to adapt to it.

Well hear what ihave said, define normal, follow the money and understand your information may be biased

I'm too much of a redhead to ever consider too warm as good ;)

So KENDALL, lets embrace the warming trend, it will be good for mankind.

If by "warm" you include such things as the depleted ozone layer...I will disagree it is good.

As to the suggestion that there is no proof rising CO2 levels are warming the earth.

The over 600 scientists who contributed to the IPCC 5th assessment disagree. The assessment concluded that the human influence on global warming is

“unequivocal.”

Normal is based on averages. As the graphs in this article shows, the last few decades have been anything but on average and therefor not normal. (h t t p://w w w.vancouverobserver.c o m/blogs/climatesnapshot/we-just-experienced-4000-years-global-warming-two-decades)

As to the suggestion that the climate models have all failed.

Gavin Schmidt of NASA, who provided a usable explanation of climate modeling, says they haven’t failed. He concluded:

“Climate models are unmatched in their ability to quantify otherwise qualitative hypotheses and generate new ideas that can be tested against observations. The models are far from perfect, but they have successfully captured fundamental aspects of air, ocean, and sea-ice circulations and their variability. They are therefore useful tools for estimating the consequences of humankind's ongoing and audacious planetary experiment.”

IE is giving me fits sorry for double posts

That being said, warmer is better for mankind than cooler so I embrace a warming trend although I realize I have NOTHING to do with it.

There is NO PROOF WHATSOEVER that CO2 is raising the temps in the world.
