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.

Listen. When I was a denier. I made every single argument you are making now.

I looked at the facts and none of them held up under scrutiny.

You'll hold up socialism as a reason to question everything about this issue.

But where is your skepticism when it comes to the sources of all the denial?

I mean we got groups of monied interests working diligently to muddy up the discussion with heaps of BS "skepticism".

We got groups of people whom are employed by those interests to go out and sow as much doubt as possible.

Where is your skeptical eye in regards to that?

As far as the claim as this issue being used by those with a socialist agenda I'll say this.

It doesn't take too much of an imagination to figure out that being that there is socialists in this world that they would rally behind this issue and put forth their ideals as a solution to it.

On the flip side we got capitalist corporations who have vested interests in keeping things the way they are because they stand to lose money if say the world economy is shifted toward renewable energy sources.

"I am calling you out on that. You don't have the intellectual flexibility nor the will to look at the issues honestly and let the facts do the talking." Calling me out??? is this some Old west fantasy of your>??? SO I lack Intellectual flexibility and honesty? Did you not once hold the position of a skeptic? Oh its the reformed druck syndrome. Because I look at all the data and come to a different conclusion than you do NOW I am somehow lacking honesty and Intellect. Doesn't add up Myth, pun intended.

Nor did I comment on anything related to the validity of your religion. Just pointing out a few other fans of your position

Do you deny that this is being used by proponents of a socialist agenda? Does not prove or disprove anything, nor did I claim it did. You once again go off half cocked.

From UNIFOR article UNIONS CLIMATE CHANGE AND SOCIALISM Far from trumping other issues, climate change vindicates much of what the left has been demanding for decades.

In fact, climate change turbo-charges our existing demands and gives them a basis in hard science. It calls on us to be bold, to get ambitious, to win this time because we really cannot afford any more losses. It enflames our vision of a better world with existential urgency.

What I’m going to show you is that confronting the climate crisis requires that we break every rule in the free-market playbook – and that we do so with great urgency…..

It should be clear by now that I am not suggesting some half-assed token “green jobs” program. This is a green labour revolution I’m talking about. An epic vision of healing our country from the ravages of the last 30 years of neoliberalism and healing the planet in the process.

Environmentalists can’t lead that kind of revolution on their own.

But that is to be expected when an individual lacks the guts to think for themselves.

Its ok though. Humans are just like animals. Its ingrained in our instincts to not stray far from our chosen flock.

People don't like being apart from like minded groups.

So why are you hoisting those socialist groups up as the be all end all reason why climate change is false and not to be trusted?

Deniers will deny until they pass out.

I am calling you out on that. You don't have the intellectual flexibility nor the will to look at the issues honestly and let the facts do the talking.

As a rightwinger you CAN NOT acknowledge the truth of the matter when it comes to climate change. You're simply not allowed too otherwise you lose you membership in Club GOP.

Harry is a perfect example of what happens when you don't stand in lockstep with how the rest of the GOP tribe is marching. You get denounced and are no longer to call yourself a Republican.

How many times have you called Harry a fraud?

So as you on the left claim the petroleum industry is carrying the skeptics banner, have you seen who is hoisting your flag?
