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.

I've got to see a bit of the new Cosmos and it looks very good. Saw a bit of the Titan episode and the very idea of life on that strange moon is awesome.

Cosmos is such a good show. The new and the old one. So far I am intensely enjoying this new one.

LOL! Tiredofit what I said about resource depletion has nothing to do with climate change. Its the simple fact the key resources for energy and other essential materials is finite on this planet.

With a population growing ever faster this world is setting itself up for a crunch.

I mean look at rare earth metals. China has large part of the worlds supply of that stuff. Which they are reducing exports of.

It is in our best interests to make sure we can supply ourselves with the resources we need. I don't see gas or oil drilling stopping until its totally gone. We use it to make so much stuff.

Good thing a lot people and industry dont think like you and are looking at and developing alternatives to key resources.

Trying to bring the climate change angle in on what I said is just you bringing your politics in on this topic. I mean a farmer knows he can only grow so much of a crop in field and graze so many cattle in a pasture. What happens when you exceed those limits.

Tiredofit must have missed the little news blurb out this past week about resource depletion.

Basically what it boils down to is that if we dont temper our consumption of resources by consuming less or finding alternative means in producing what we need. If we don't do that then we are in some trouble.

We can do it or nature will.

Good stuff, Tiredofit. Thanks.

Oh and on the subject of All Access.

If I was inclined to pay for it I would demand something be done about people who post a near endless amount of links to other websites....with rarely a word typed by themselves.

In fact if I was a paying customer I would DEMAND that be stopped.

LOL! Tiredofit it makes no sense for you to declare that anyone is losing anything.

You're kinda sorta compromised on this issue.

Your disagreement with it isn't based on the facts. Its based on who is politically backing the issue.

So go on back up to Marietta and agree with your fellow yes men.

When you don't know what you are talking about, just blame climate change, Fox News and Rush, right, myth and oneill?

Don't those idiots know that climate change made that airplane disappear? And climate change would be stopped if it were not for Fox. Fox is responsible for so few tornadoes and very few hurricanes too. Fox Power. Whatever the weather, they did it.

And that is a consensus of my peers.

Posted 693 days ago.

Oneill, why do you constantly put your ignorance on display by talking about what the "right" will do? I am on tbe right and being a long time subscriber to the News and Sentinel, how will I be affected? Talking about yourself?

Hope you and the peers are keeping warm. A fake concensus just gives an illusion of warmth so be careful.

I forgot to add this.

Anyone who cites Fox News as a source is pretty much admitting that they are misinformed.

Not that anyone cares what you say. But just so you know. It can be proven with facts that Fox News is deliberately deceptive in the news they "report".

The head honcho has an agenda and Fox News reflects that agenda.

From the hyper partisan bent they take to the flat out false accusations and insinuations they make.

Fox News isn't news. Its a rightwing propaganda mouthpiece.

Even their slogan We report you decide is misnomer. They decide before hand how the news must be spun and they spin it to make those that their boss disagrees with out to be bad.

Fox News is yellow journalism at its worst.

A consensus in sciences is just that.a consensus. Any IMBE--cile that had to resort to idiotic accusations of someone watching fox news is . . . . .well is just a freaking imbecile.

And that's is my consensus.

On the issue of pay to play. It won't affect me one bit. I don't need to be on this site. Sure has been fun but you know what..big deal.

I won't have to worry about the stupid pop ups that I can't seem to block. The pop ups by the way are horrible on my android phone. You literally can't do anything without triggering one. Its annoying.

I just hope the paper is ready for a drop off in ad revenue and the potential that online readership will take a big hit.

Once the switch is made I won't even bother with this site.

The new Cosmos show is awesome. Its hilarious that it is causing people on the right to throw a fit though.

People demanding equal time to air their views on the origin of life.

Only problem is that they would have to be able to bring some proof to the table that specifically backs up their views to stand a chance. And we all know that can't happen.

Oh its so funny. Mr Tyson even took on the issue of the the complexity of the eye.

HA HA HA! LOL!

Its funny that so many are willing to argue the science is wrong...but when science lead to a medical treatment being developed that makes their lives better or saves their lives...yep no questioning the science there.

Its a political issue for most of the people who deny it. Its the old us versus them paradigm rearing its ugly head.

Oneil exactly "Climatologists" A a gathering of two or more persons who agree on a subject "a consensus' They are NOT scientists and their "ideas" are never approved through the science world vetting process. They are NOT approved because they have ALWAYS failed to use "proper" scientific methods. So you can have two or you can have thousands that have a "consensus" and they can all hold "peer" reviews and then clap each other on their backs HOWEVER the science field rejects all their Consensus.

Time to wake up and smell the garbage you drank last night oniel..............AGW and all the quacking about Climate Change has come to light........

Give it up

Thatsabsurd

Climate Scintetstetetesteeees can "consensus" all they want that's all it is a consensus. However science is real with facts not consensuses. And you won't find anyone in the "science" world take it beyond a consensus.

Why because its garbage only imbecile could possible believe in.

They have never done anything but "peer" reviews because the science community rejects their hypothesis and their theories BECAUSE they fail to use scientific methods in their decisions.
