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.

Actually the one I just mentioned is a good example. Because not only is a warmer atmosphere melting the sea ice up in the north but scientists are finding elevated levels of soot on the ice and snow up there too.

That adds to the amount of sunlight the ice and snow absorbs and contributes to its melting.

Oh yea I need to mention that the northern ice pack becoming less and less in the summer is allowing shipping routes to open up that weren't there ten years ago.

Also there is a push for increased energy exploration by all the countries with with a stake up there.

Couldn't do so much of that ten years ago.

Why is that?

Convince me that me showing you facts is a worthwhile endeavour.

You'll have already shown that you will deny it all.

You know the polar north is still cold and when we have a slew of weather patterns bring that cold down here along with moisture from the south what do we get?

Bad winter! DEE DEE DEE!

"Republicans are at fault for a portion of the debt as well, never denied that."

But you never lambast them the way you do democrats.

Whats the point to showing you the predictions that are coming true?

You'll just deny it.

And I'll bet that because of what I just wrote you'll accuse me of not being able to prove that any have come true.

I might do it if I feel like it.

"The debt is a matter of mathematics, I will forgive your ignorance."

I guess if we wanted to keep a lid on the debt we shouldn't have had a Republican administration take us into a ruinous war that hasn't accomplished anything.

They did get access to the oil they were after though.

"All predictions have failed to come to fruition."

False!

Could it be that the GOP is using the FEAR of the debt crisis to rally support around policies they want to pursue?

Looks like it!

They fear alot to tell the truth.

They fear a vengeful god.

They fear socialists.

They fear marxists.

They fear the debt CRISIS!

They fear Unions.

And then turn around and point out that the left uses fear tactics to gain support.

OH GOD LOL!

You complain of government action on everything then turn around and call for action the debt CRISIS!

Whats this? Using gloom and doom to push a policy decision you care about?

You derided me for doing the same exact thing!

Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch you are a massive hypocrite!

"And of course this government has our children's future in mind right? They don't seem worried about the economic disaster they are creating for our children now do they? That one is real and preventable but they won't address it"

God you're an idiot.

Think for just one minute what will happen in the future with climate change whether you believe or not.

You need to think "what if they are right".

The effects of climate change at their very worst will upset this world in totality.

You are ******* 100,000 percent correct when you say nothing can be proven.

Nothing can be proven to you!

You refuse to acknowledge any and all facts laid on the table.

You DENY all of it regardless of the truth.

You are a dishonest debater on this issue.

Posted 675 days ago.

mythravere

No what you are is little man who is so biased against others that nothing they say can ever be right.

Your ideology is so rigid that it has destroyed your ability to be reasoned with.

A human being that can't be reasoned with is a horrible thing to become.

mythravere

I believe it because I find the facts compelling.

But I understand. Because I don't believe as you do that automatically make me a fool. Also because I don't share the same political bent as you that also makes me fool.

So people unlike you are frauds and fools.

Ok I get it. LOL!

Goodness this is hilarious.

" You want to believe that you have the power to alter climate and have some power in an otherwise meaningless life."

I don't want to believe anything. I just acknowledge humanity has power in numbers.

And my life has meaning. I try to go through life in a decent manner. I work hard. I am honest. I try to help others out if I can.

I fully believe that what you put into this world is what you will get out of it.

Thats what gives my life meaning.

I just don't have a need for their be something after death.

"Wrong, you believe in global warming because you are easily fooled and on the left."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Right here is the proof that your objections to this issue are ideological and political in nature.

Its bias plain and simple.

You reject man made climate change because you view it as a cause from across the aisle.

Boy oh boy. Thats a corrupt way of living.

You say fear is the reason I believe in climate change.

Why would I let the fear of climate change control me when I don't let the fear of eternal damnation control me?

mythravere

Which god is in charge of all things Tiredofit?

You speak of fear being used to sway people to the side of those who tout climate change.

But yet you fail to realize that fear of eternal torture in a fiery pit is the main thing that keeps the majority of people from questioning the validity of god.
