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.

"Suddenly the Marxist socialist left saw the opportunity.."

Conspiracy theory. No evidence.

"They are pretty invested in this thing and tend to lash out when you question their religion."

Whose "they".

I simply look at the science of the situation. It's those that look toward conspiracies like govt coverups or payoffs that treat this topic like a religion.

As we add to our understanding of this topic, attitudes change. But...if a person thinks global warming is not happening, then they should show evidence instead of..well...nothing.

NOAA announced its predictions for the 2006 hurricane season, saying it expects an "above normal" year with 13-16 named storms. Of these storms, the agency says it expects four to be hurricanes of category 3 or above, double the yearly average of prior seasons in recorded history. With experts calling the coming hurricane season potentially worse than last year's, oil prices have jumped 70 cents per barrel in New York and made similar leaps elsewhere. Economists anticipate that demand for oil will rise sharply over the summer, when as many as four major hurricanes could hit the United States. -- Seed Magazine 5/19/06

Very Active 2007 Hurricane Season Predicted - The U.S. Atlantic basin will likely experience a very active hurricane season, the Colorado State University forecast team announced today, increasing its earlier prediction for the 2007 hurricane season. The team's forecast now anticipates 17 named storms forming in the Atlantic basin between June 1 and Nov. 30. Nine of the 17 storms are predicted to become hurricanes, and of those nine, five are expected to develop into intense or major hurricanes (Saffir/Simpson category 3-4-5) with sustained winds of 111 mph or greater. - Science Daily April 3, 2007

A number of climatologists, whose job it is to keep an eye on long-term weather changes, have lately been predicting deterioration of the benign climate to which we have grown accustomed….Various climatologists issued a statement that “the facts of the present climate change are such that the most optimistic experts would assign near certainty to major crop failure in a decade,” If policy makers do not account for this oncoming doom, “mass deaths by starvation and probably in anarchy and violence” will result.

Scientists, these seemingly disparate incidents represent the advance signs of fundamental changes in the world’s weather. The central fact is that after three quarters of a century of extraordinarily mild conditions, the earth’s climate seems to be cooling down. Meteorologists disagree about the cause and extent of the cooling trend, as well as over its specific impact on local weather conditions. But they are almost unanimous in the view that the trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century. – The Cooling World Newsweek, April 28, 1975

Giant sand dunes may turn Plains to desert - Huge sand dunes extending east from Colorado's Front Range may be on the verge of breaking through the thin topsoil, transforming America's rolling High Plains into a desert, new research suggests. The giant sand dunes discovered in NASA satellite photos are expected to re- emerge over the next 20 to 50 years, depending on how fast average temperatures rise from the suspected "greenhouse effect," scientists believe. -Denver Post April 18, 1990

And by the way. Doing what you want without an ounce of regard to how it can negatively affect others is THE number one thing that Satanists believe in.

Forgot to add this.

They'll say its in gods hands he gave us dominion over the earth a new earth is on the way so screw it lets do what we want.

I think that gets to the root of many conservatives problem with this issue.

They try and tell you life is precious to them but it really isn't.

False hope though will lead you down dangerous paths though.

How many of them would think that it was gods will that we are in line to take a hit from said asteroid?

correction

To me thats insane. It makes me wonder also.

If we knew for a fact an asteroid was headed toward the earth and its impact would incinerate the surface of the earth would they allow to hit if they could?

I mean after all it does figure into their end time predictions of fire and brimstone reigning down on the world.

Oh many of them would think that it was gods will that we in line to take a hit from said asteroid?

Its scary to think that some of them would think that way.

Now I say this with the thought that we would have a means of saving ourselves. We very well could not in the event it did happen. In which case their opinion really wouldn't matter.

I will say that I have often considered the religious types lackadaisical attitude to issues like climate change and irreparably damaging our planet's ability to support life as we know it as being immensely dangerous.

For them the solution to those problems will be solved when the almighty returns...sometime.

Its always not to far away for them interestingly enough. But yet they are never right about it when they predict it.

The end times are upon us they say.

But nothing ever happens.

I don't think Tiredofit grasps how small our world is and how wide ranging on it we are.

In addition to that he probably lacks the appreciation of the fact that its the only home we have.

Therefore we need to take care of it and by extension ourselves.

Ok...I'll give you the benefit of the doubt here. What is it about the well documented Severe acute respiratory syndrome that you don't believe about?

But yet Global Warming is true. You have admitted to that yourself.

You just think the dominant species on the planet is too small and puny to contribute to it.

Lol, I have heard many off the wall stories involving redheads but this was a new one.

I might recommend that if you are going to cite a story though, do more reading.

Redheads and even blondes have been "dying out" for centuries in crack pot news stories. Yet we are still here blessing the world with our very presence :)
