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 guys were all touting it as PROOF.."

Shows that you can't tell the truth about anything. I never even commented on the Nye thing Tired.

Try removing your foot from your mouth. It would benefit your position (as weak as it is) greatly.

"lay it out here"

It's been laid out many times Tired, you simply could not and would not understand it. Not our problem.

"I cannot prove a negative Kendall,"

Good thing I NEVER asked you to do that isn't it? But I did ask you to prove, "its a natural cycle", which you claim it is. Don't squirm from it Tired, provide the facts to back up your position.

When the preponderance of research says there is a problem I'll take their word for it over your denying that nothings happening !

You don't have one shred of evidence that its not !Its so obvious that even when shown said research that tired brain cant prop up its (or should I say Fauxs) views ! Another right wing repeater !

Kendall, Its very clear that tiredbrain wont accept the research from any source because then that would mean he's wrong !

"I cannot prove a negative and you have offered no proof"

No matter how many times you say it, no one has asked you to try and prove a negative and proof was given to you many many times on this very thread. Ignoring it is not the same as not having it given to you.

"MY SIDE SAYS MAN DOES NOT CAUSE GLOBAL WARMING"

So you are claiming ignorance as to why global warming is happening?

Ok..you're just stupid then and revel in that. No surprise there.

"In say manmade global warming does not exist."

Have I ever asked you to prove something does not exist?

The answer is no btw. Let me spoonfeed this to you.

1. One side says that the current heating of the Earth is due to mankind in part and have offered up proof to that.

2. The opposition (you) says that the current heating is part of the natural cycle. However, no proof is given to back up this proposition.

See...no proving the negative, so there is no weaseling out of it. Can you provide proof to you belief or not?

"If the only evidence for something's existence is a lack of evidence for it not existing.."

Oy vey...Tired, in no way did I imply that man made global warming relies on this.

You made a statement about today's increase in global heat is part of the natural cycle. There for, you should easily be able to show the similarities of today's heat increase with past events. You should be able to point out natural phenomenon that are the cause of the increased heat.

You haven't and frankly I don't think you can.

Now how about your next contrived controversy? Eh tiredofit?

And for the record I do not want to see any sort of carbon tax since I know it will used by certain greedy folks in the financial industry to make a hefty profit by speculating.

On a side note. BNSF railroad is experimenting with natural gas powered locomotives right now.

Whats interesting is it brings back into the railroad lexicon the use of the word tender. Since a tank car(tender) that provides the gas is behind the locomotive.

So things are changing.

I am going to put this here in all caps so my position is clear.

NOTHING CAN BE DONE IN MY OPINION TO STOP CLIMATE CHANGE NOW.

WE HAVE TO ADAPT TO THE CHANGES THAT COMES OUR WAY.

That means an all of the above approach to energy.

If we can use wind,hydro etc in certain areas. Then do it. Areas like ours that aren't really suited to them. Use natural gas or coal with carbon sequestration(provided its viable and safe)

But from an economic standpoint we are going to see a lot more gas fired power stations come online versus coal power.

Coal was supplanted as a means of fuel for the railroads when more economical diesel fueled locomotives came on the scene.

And so it will be with power generation.

How yea. Here recently was it not you who said that even though there IS warming man is not responsible for it?

But now you are saying there is no warming?

Consistency in position isn't your strong suit.

So which is it?

"It is you Larry and Shemp who claim man and co2 are causing cataclysmic warming which will forever change the world and make it a living he'll."

I never said that it would make life a living he11.

What no one knows is how it will affect weather patterns. We don't know how those will shift. Note I am talking about day to day and season to season weather.

You concrete block of a brain might get confused by that.

But a rising sea level. Yea. That will make things difficult for people. Especially people who live on the coasts or on low lying islands.

We'll see new challenges to how we live.

Thats what I am saying. Not the sensationalist bs that you project onto me.

"What a convienent way of saying "trust us, it may be cooler everywhere else but the deep ocean now there its getting warmer. Lol"

Global warming isn't about just the atmosphere.

But I guess you can't be bothered to understand that the land and oceans also absorb heat. In fact water absorbs way more heat than the air.

But who am I kidding huck yuck!

Its all a hoax right? Riiiigggghht!
