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.

"You assail my character"

Now thats hilarious in the highest degree!

Tiredofit you slander and mock anyone that doesn't agree with you.

No respect will be given when none is received.

Apologise for calling Harry a fraud.

Lets see the depths of your sincerity.

As far as the Gas/Jar test goes there is an easy way to remove doubt surrounding the heat-lamp issue.

Two jars. One with normal air in it and one with a measured amount of co2 added to its air mixture set outside..in direct sunlight with identical digital thermometers inserted through holes drilled in the lid and sealed.

I wonder how that would go?

I know where I'd place my bet.

"I am very tired of this debate for lack of a better term, it's going nowhere."

Make a good good argument built on facts that are believable and that hold up to scrutiny that isn't politically motivated then maybe it might go somewhere...for you.

"You assail my character while ignoring your little buddies.."

This is humorous, if he found problems in other people's character..do you believe it will make your bad behavior better in some way?

"...devisive and hateful tone that Haas permeated the discussion as it has here. I am as guilty as anyone I suppose, so no more."

Well, Tiredofit, It seems you're seeing that a "divisive and hateful tone" results in the debate "going nowhere."

So what are you gonna do about it? Are you ready for a more constructive conversation?

"I am very tired of this debate for lack of a better term, it's going nowhere."

If you would answer questions as you expect others to do, then the debate could move forward.

You are quite rude Tired. I answered your questions a long time ago on here and you constantly refuse to answer mine.

And here I thought you considered yourself a gentleman.

These are simple questions Tired. Try answering them.

What are you afraid of?

I would guess it's because you know CO2 does retain heat but you are too prideful to admit it. It also bruises your ego some because the blog you cite from acknowledges that CO2 is a greenhouse gas but you only cherry pick from it when it seems to suit you.

Meanwhile, back in the present--

--evidence of a warming planet grows.

"A giant portion of an Antarctic ice sheet appears to be on an 'unstoppable' decline, new research released Monday (today) showed, which could lift sea levels faster than previously forecast.

"Melting around the West Antarctic Ice Sheet has been occurring for decades, and has sped up in the past 10 years, according to satellite data of the Amundsen Sea Embayment, which contains enough ice to lift global sea levels by about 1.2 meters, or nearly four feet."

Thank you, Tiredofit, for the trip down memory lane. The term "mental midgets" reminds my of my grade-school days on the Park School playground (now occupied by a Wendy's and a CVS).
