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.

The writer acknowledged that some so-called Republicans would be unwilling discuss applying conservative solutions to the real problem of climate disruption:

“Democrats have owned the climate change conversation for years, for the worse. The issue is perceived as “liberal” because only Democrats really discuss it. The left grabs the headlines with protests, civil disobedience, coordinated big-money campaigns, and sensationalist claims that the sky is falling. The left has been so successful at commanding the debate with talk of government mandates, reckless spending, and picking winners and losers that it has actually worsened the intransigence of conservatives on the issue.”

I somewhat take issue with the last sentence. The left is not responsible for some conservatives’ intransigence. I believe people should take personal responsibility, and that they should own their intransigence.

If everyone would just become Democrats the world would be as one. Imagine all the people. Now for reality are your land lines down? Mine has been since @ 5pm.

More Republican reasonableness:

A Republican House staffer has advocated, albeit anonymously in order to “protect his boss and himself,” conservative solutions to the real problem of climate change.

Writing in Real Clear Science, “Eric Bradenton” leads, “Someone in the GOP needs to say it: conservation is conservative; climate change is real; and conservatives need to lead on solutions because we have better answers than the other side.”

And writes, “Republicans don’t have to choose between conceding to the left and denying the science. There are genuine pro-growth solutions that align with conservative values. Republicans can admit that 97 percent of scientists just might be right without having to embrace Democratic ideas that would grow government.”

If more Republicans adopt this attitude, it will be very good for both Party and Country.

Rational conservatives propose rational conservative solutions to the climate change problem.

One such conservative is Eli Lehrer, former Vice President of the fiercely skeptical Heartland Institute. In a new Weekly Standard piece arguing for conservative solutions, Lehrer writes, “Since carbon emissions do present a real problem,…”

Lehrer proposes instituting a tax on carbon and using the money to reduce taxes on productivity.

He concludes, “President Obama’s various proposals to deal with climate change have deep flaws. But that doesn’t mean the problem they seek to address isn’t genuine. Conservatives should care about global warming. And, just as liberals have done for almost 20 years, they should use the issue as a way to promote policies they already favor.”

That’s doing things decently and in order. Admit the problem is “real” and “genuine,” then discuss solutions.

Maybe the US can provide "Socket Balls" to all kids through their schools. These balls produce electricity while being kicked around and store that energy in batteries. Then at night the kids can plug their Iphones into them to recharge. Oops, forgot that it would require them to actually play with the ball to make it work.

We just had a rain pass through and I swear the drops were much bigger than the ones that fell last week when it rained. I'm now getting frightened that there may be something to this. Glad that under the new rules rationing daily power won't come into effect for a few more years. We will be caching up with Iraq and parts of Africa in our daily allotted power quotas. I fear for our children.

I could be wrong about a couple folks, if so, I apologize, but most of the folks I see opine about it wouldn't begin to grasp the science or lack thereof.

Its funny, i doubt any of you beleivers have read the climate research. Rather you have it explained to you by your media outlet of choice,, and it sure isn't Fox.

It makes perfect sense. A volcanic eruption can and has cooled the planet before. Many times in fact. Cleaner air allows more sunlight through which will heat the planet more and that heat will become trapped by the Co2...more.

"Laughs" and remains ignorant. What else is new

An interesting subject. Google "clean air causes global warming."

No, it's not.

So its fair to say that you don't much care what science has to say about this?

“Is it not true that the bible places the earth at about 6000 years old?”

I've heard different takes on that. Some have added up all the years of the patriarchs and come up with 6000. They're basing their analysis on a literal interpretation of the word “day” in God created the world in 6 days.

Others say that's not necessarily the case, based on another scripture that says something about a day being as a thousand years to God.

I don't obsess over which interpretation is correct because it doesn't require any action on my part. I just trust God to guide me when I need to make a decision.

Anthropogenic climate change is different, in part because it requires decision. (Not acting is a decision.)

Well Harry, is it not true that the bible places the earth at about 6000 years old?

And I’m quite happy to relate that the Bible and the work of its author, Jesus Christ, teach us how to remain patient and peaceful when faced with opposition. It teaches us that it’s okay to be angry, and how to be angry without responding in anger, and how to not let the sun set on our anger. Jesus Christ rescues us from the prison of our anger. And any other thing that threatens to imprison us.

That’s pretty cool with me, and I thank you for giving me the chance to point it out.
