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.

Lets set the groundrules for our chat. Is scientific opinion to be viewed as truthful for the purpose of our conversion?

Harry I have asked you a direct question care to respond?

Any reasonable person should agree that beliefs aren't always based on science. Beliefs may have origins such as religion, cultural preference, training, group identification, and so on.

With that in mind, are you now willing to restate the basis for your apparent belief that climate science is a political conspiracy we should fear?

So lets be sure that scientific opinion is our guide before we go down this road again

Well harry if we are to believe science without question I want to make sure we believe ALL science and not just what fits your agenda.

Tiredofit

Harry do you also agree that thousands of scientists agree that man evolved from the sea.

There you go raising the straw man again. What does the age of the earth have to do with political paranoia surrounding climate science?

Tiredofit

Harry do you agree that thousands of scientists agree the earth is millions of years old

“Quite the contrary, Harry. I have on more than one occasion gave reasons for my skepticism.”

I must confess that your straw men have distracted me, apparently causing me to miss your explanation as to why you fear that thousands of scientists at many different institutions working under various political structures within competing cultures are collaborating in a secret agenda to lie about the laws of physics and in order to achieve a worldwide political goal.

For my convenience, would you care to restate the reasons for your fears?

*****we don't know what its doing heating cooling whatever, just give Govt control over more of you life and tax the crap out of everyone that will fix it

Tell us all how the earth ( that was created on six days). Is warming Errr cooling no wait changing.

Tiredofit

Quite the contrary, Harry. I have on more than one occasion gave reasons for my skepticism, you just chose not to listen apparently. Extol the virtues of science Harry and the close with a bible quote. That's your pattern.

Definition time. Paranoia is BASELESS or excessive suspicions of the motives of others. (emphasis added)

Tiredofit,

This discussion has followed a familiar pattern. Whenever you feel challenged to provide evidence for your beliefs, you bring up a straw man to distract attention from your inability to support those beliefs. In this case, the straw man you brought up was the origin of man. Then, when politely asked how the straw man (the origin of man) related to the discussion at hand (fear that climate science is a political conspiracy), you followed your usual desperate pattern—calling names like hypocrite, fraud, and obtuse.

Tiredofit, the only thing for which you “have made a clear and unimpeachable case” is your tendency to use straw men and smears.

Oh that's right, its a matter of faith for you so its ok to reject anthropology but climate science, well that is the gospel of Harry.

Posted 427 days ago.

Tiredofit

I don't wish to rehash your hypocrisy on this issue, I have made a clear and unimpeachable case for it already.

Posted 427 days ago.

Tiredofit

Be as obtuse as you like Harry, you are indeed a fraud and you know it. Science does not support creation, are they collaborating in a conspiracy???? or are they correct and you wrong?

Posted 427 days ago.

harryanderson

What does the origin of man have to do with fear of a political conspiracy organized by scientists?

Posted 427 days ago.

Tiredofit

Said it before, will say it again, you cannot deny science on many levels and then call me paranoid for the same thing.

Posted 427 days ago.

Tiredofit

What is your credible evidence that man came from the garden of eden Harry??? Sight me a scientific journal of peer reviewed studies that support that theory.
