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 for evidence that CO2 does have an effect on the climate, I refer you back to NASA. They have many reports on the subject and you approve of NASA.

At least you did when they give reports that you approve of.

" I have as much proof of anything I have posted.."

Deflection, try again Tired.

You have made a claim, you are responsible to offer facts for that claim if you want to be taken seriously or have any respect for yourself as an intelligent being.

"of course the climate changes, always has, always will."

Hmm, seems someone is trying to form a strawman. No one on here has denied that climate changes.

The only denier on here are those that think the dominant species on the planet has not effect on the climate.

"Scientists who go along with the cause are rewarded...also with altogether billions in hard, cold cash"

No evidence that they get direction from anyone in the govt to say what they want.

Try dealing in facts for once.

"but because it is a justification for a government takeover of the energy industry"

You have no evidence of this conspiracy theory.

Many of us Republicans won't go along with the demagogues. We want a seat at the table when solutions are being considered, and we may not get that seat if we practice balkanization.

As far as this being an issue that should only be addressed by the "socialist left," many Republicans disagree.

Republican pollster Alex Lundry wrote in the right-leaning Daily Caller:

"Americans believe global climate change is real. This includes 51% of Republicans who say the effects are already happening, or will happen shortly, or will happen in their lifetimes."

The polling I've conducted has convinced me of the necessity for Republicans to address these real concerns about climate change in ways that reflect our principles and priorities and satisfy public demand for practical solutions."

So....no facts to back up your claims Tired?

No evidence?

No citation?

Nothing changes much with you does it?

"A new study by a “group of mean reactionary science purists” at the Journal Nature Climate Change took a look at 117 of the Left’s wild claims."

Tired...try to lie better will you. The title is,"Global warming predictions proven wrong 97.4% of the time"

Predictions are not the same as facts. Why do you think that if a prediction is incorrect that the science is wrong too?

If it is predicted that 14.7 million illegals are going to cross the border but only 14.6 million do...is there still a problem with immigration even if the prediction didn't pan out?

"Global warming predictions.."

I think you are confused by predictions and facts Tired.

"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

"(By) 1995, the greenhouse effect would be desolating the heartlands of North America and Eurasia with horrific drought, causing crop failures and food riots... "(By 1996) The Platte River of Nebraska would be dry, while a continent-wide black blizzard of prairie topsoil will stop traffic on interstates, strip paint from houses and shut down computers... "The Mexican police will round up illegal American migrants surging into Mexico seeking work as field hands". - Michael Oppenheimer, The Environmental Defense Fund - "Dead Heat" 1990

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
