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.

"If you cannot control the weather, you cannot control the climate."

Since you seem to need it:

Climate- is a measure of the average pattern of variation in temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, precipitation, atmospheric particle count and other meteorological variables in a given region over long periods of time. Climate is different than weather, in that weather only describes the short-term conditions of these variables in a given region.

Weather- is the state of the atmosphere, to the degree that it is hot or cold, wet or dry, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy.

"If you cannot control the weather, you cannot control the climate. Where is the proof that MAN can control his climate?"

Can man control a factory? Yes. Can man control how much pollution goes in the air? Yes. Can man directly control what pollution from those factories do to the climate? No.

If an idiot is playing with a loaded gun and it fires, puts a bullet into his body and kills him...are you going to ask why he didn't control the bullet? No, the obvious response is that when you play with something dangerous such as a gun or a factory dumping tons of pollution in the air you are bound to get uncontrollable results.

That's funny.

Tiredofit comes on a thread I originated--which he has sworn to boycott, by the way--and tries to exclude me from the discussion.

No sale.

And before you invite harry to help you out, be advised he has no credibility. He denies science all the time as it applies to the origins of man yet he calls skeptics on GLobal warming, DENIERS. A little FYI

"GLOBAL WARMING IS A FRAUD AND THE PLANET DOES HEAT AND COOL."

No one denies that here. But the discussion on Climate Change is whether mankind, the dominant species on the planet, influences climate change on a global scale. It would be as silly as ignoring the sun in the sky to think humanity doesn't influence climate.

"Global warming is just QUARTER what we thought"

Or...

Global warming is 25% worse than what deniers believed.

Tiredofit,

If you aren't tying climate change to the hurricane season, why are you bringing the hurricane season up on a thread devoted to climate change?

What does Greenpeace, World Socialist Organizations, Labor Unions have to do with it, boy are they behind it.

"Exactly what does a weather forcast have to do with global climate change?"

Very very little.

However, the weather people see has a significant impact on their belief in anthropogenic climate change.

Uneducated people and those whose political agendas drive their actions trumpet the weather.

Thinking people understand that climate refers to prevailing weather patterns over decades and centuries, so they don't confuse climate and weather.

Exactly what does a weather forcast have to do with global climate change? You tell me, it was not I that tied Climate change (once called warming) to Hurricanes it was NOAA. So let me ask you WHAT DOES SANTA have to do with it>>? I asuume you have seen the commercial, if not google it.
