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.

As usual , wrong again ! I don't watch the news on the networks ! Simple logic and common sense are all that's needed to see whats happening !Your strict adherence to your right-wing idiocy makes you simple !

Look , you cant prove god exists but some of us are sure of it ! Do you want to wait till we cant survive the environment so you'll have your proof ?

How about you show proof that it doesn't exist !

I'm sorry tiredbrain but I tried to make a point by dumbing it down so you might understand but I guess that comprehension is not your forte !The whole point is how it's happening doesn't matter , it's happening !Most learned researchers agree that its likely caused by man !I know that you will refuse to believe it because faux didn't say it !

"What are the HISTORIC NORMS you often refer to and how far back does the data go/??"

That didn't answer my question.

Are you implying that the last Ice Age was part of a historical tend? Is that why you mentioned it? If so..then why?

"What caused the last ice age and what caused the end of same"

That didn't answer my question.

So you are deflecting again?

Did you not understand the question? Ok...if you feel the temperature of the Earth is rising on average, then what is causing that rise in temperature?

Did you understand it that time? Do I need to break it down further for you or are you going to avoid it in another way? Please be honest if you are able.

And Tired, if one looks at your pasts posts, you do give support to the notion that global warming is happening.

I'm sorry that upsets you but when you leave out specifics in your vague claims, then you invite people to fill in the gaps. Those gaps tend to shoot your position out of the water.

You say that there haven't been any significant increase in temps on land for 17 years. That invites people to see how the oceanic temps are doing. They have been going up and cover more of the surface of the Earth than land.

By metioning 17 years (which is outdated so update your copy/paste), you invite people to compare these last 17 years with the previous 17. And of course the last 17 were hotter on average than the previous 17 and continues to show that the problem is still very real.

After all the blather from Tired and he still has not proven his point yet.

Tired, is the average temp of the Earth higher or lower than 100 years ago?

If higher, what is causing it?

If lower, what is causing it?

Lastly, can you prove it or at least offer up citation to support your position?

Lesson of the day Tired....use quotation marks. Otherwise you seem a bit erratic.

"You are so deluded you thing I am.."

Also I would recommend you pause and take your time in writing. Otherwise you kind of sound like a caveman.

Hers some facts from nasa ~~~~Earth-orbiting satellites and other technological advances have enabled scientists to see the big picture, collecting many different types of information about our planet and its climate on a global scale. Studying these climate data collected over many years reveal the signals of a changing climate.

OMG tiredbrain ! Lets say you get stung , well it might have been a bee , maybe not ! But the FACT IS YOU GOT STUNG !!!!Denial is not a viable option !

You keep blabbering about not having proof. I find this odd since there has been alot of evidence sufficient to establish it to be true. Even from your own ramblings.

You have shown that the past 17 years have been hotter than the previous 17. Thank you for that.

You have shown that land temps have not changed dramatically and thanks to you being so specific in saying land temps, you have shown us that oceanic temps have risen. Thanks again.

You say CO2 isn't a greenhouse gas but then blatantly refuse to show it to be an inert gas incapable of being a greenhouse gas. Therefor the obvious conclusion is to go with existing data and agree that yes...it is a greenhouse gas. Thanks again.

Being a denier that offers no information just strenghtens the very position you want to tear down. Don't you get that?

"I GUESS YOU DONT UNDERSTAND POKER EITHER."

Actually I understand it quite well. I am playing the game while you are just a heckler in the stands who wished they had the capital to play the game.

You see Tired, to play this game you have to be willing to offer information and citation. You don't do this and think you prove something by telling others they are wrong with no good reason.

Many logical questions are asked of you and you refuse to asnwer them. I don't know why. Maybe you are afraid. Maybe you don't know. But since you do not offer anything to back up your assertions, you are not playing the game...you are just a heckler.

"because you have nothing and cannot admit it."

Are you saying that I never cited any of my information before? You should try to make your lies more opaque.

"Cannot prove a negative."

I agree, that's why I never asked you to prove one.

I never said once that the govt needs more power.

Why do you lie so much?

Time for dinner...have fun with those citations you are going to post. :D

Posted 116 days ago.

Kendall78

I will tell you what....I will again cite my information when you do.

That seems fair right?
