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 realize that it's nearly impossible not to be labeled, or stereotyped by others.

However, I see no sense in doing it to myself.

And as you know thats when you get dismissed as a fraud.

Harry its near impossible to not be labeled. Speak your opinion and who ever is across the way reading it they will almost always respond to you like you are part of the party opposite to them if they disagree with you.

The vast majority of people are holed up in one of the two parties.

If you aren't in either of those groups then the ones in it dont really know how to deal with your opinion.

Grammar corrections the O'l standby when you got nothing better to say but still want to sling some mud! LOL!

Pardon me for offending your sensibilities!

BTW, Mythravere,

I am not a "legitimate conservative." I don't attach ideological labels like "conservative" or "liberal" to myself.

Here's why:

I don't subscribe to all the positions to which those who call currently call themselves conservatives subscribe. If I call myself a conservative, or a liberal, or a libertarian, or another ideological label, I'm encouraging people to assign positions to me which aren't mine.

In short, I'd be stereotyping myself and letting others define me. Not a good thing.

Myth,

"The collective gas release (from the) vociferous ones" gets attention because it smells like it comes from a garbage diet.

The problem with the right is who's doing all the talking. It aint the level headed ones! You got nutcases and media born political pundits setting the tone. Everyone else gets drowned out in the collective gas release that comes from vociferous ones.

The same can be said of the left in some regards but the right lets it fly with a lot of intensity.

More than is warranted in fact.

And they just repeat it and repeat and repeat it...which happens to be a tactic that they chose to use.

Had a person tell me the other day that they can't talk to their brother about Obama because the brother gets so flustered over Obama.

I bet the brother watches Fox News.

I am far from an anomaly within the Republican Party.

If the Republican Party kicked out every one of us who believe humans are warming the planet, the Party would lose 2 members out of every 5, since, according to Gallup…

“The majority of Democrats, at 78%, ascribe global warming to human activities, while 39% of Republicans agree.”

I'm fully aware and keeping up nicely thank you.

Through your posts you express the position the Harry is not a legitimate conservative due to to his stance on certain issues.

All the warming foolishness? There isn't any. Its happening.

I feel you are letting politics inform your opinions on the issue.

You're not telling the truth, Tiredofit. I never called you anti-science.

Tiredofit

No myth harry is a fraud because he calls me anti science if i don't buy all the warming foolishness, while he rejects science as it applies to the origin of man, try to keep up.

Plagiarism? Noooo. Copy paste from internet comment I found that didn't know the source.

Its not as if the source would somehow magically mean anything though.

I but let me guess I am intellectually lazy for not going and looking it up?

Ok you got me! LOL!

mythravere

Hahahahahaha. But you can tell Harry that he aint part of the Conservative party and he's a fraud?

Nice double standards you got there.

Sorry Myth you don't get to tell me what camp I am in sorry you just don't have that authority. Keep setting up your strawmen.

I for one believe in the possibilities represented by clean coal tech but at least that kid has a daddy coming home. And at least that daddy might live a longer life outside the mines.

Really though. What's the point of bringing that up at all. Its a chip used to score political points.

Drill baby drill! Wonder how that gas is getting to the surface?

Starts below.

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Republican."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you are going. You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it's my fault."

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude."

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be an Democrat."

"I am,"replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "you d

LOL there is a very thin line between doubt and denial. Just looking at the facts there is little to doubt about climate change.

The arguments you make are not the ones someone who "doubts" it would make.

Sorry bud but you are camped out with the deniers.
