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.

Yeah, but I always like to point out his errors because some poor fool out there might believe his factless trollisms.

Even if he believes what he says he'll never back up anything he says.

His whole point is to trigger a response from one of us.

Just for giggles.

Actually Tiredofit also stated a while back that there is no warming at all.

He's just a troll. He's just doing this for kicks.

Let's break this down into simpler bites for you Tired.

1. No one has claimed that all climate change is due to mankind.

2. The average temperature for the entire planet is warmer now than it was 100 years ago.

3. The average temperature of the planet for the last 17 years is hotter than the previous 17 years.

4. CO2 is a greehouse gas capable of trapping heat.

You yourself have admitted that the world is getting warmer and that the climate changes. Why are you so against the facts that man can effect the global climate?

If NASA says that Mars and Pluto are warming up....do you beleieve them?

Yes or No

If NASA says that CO2 contributes to climate change...do you believe them?

Yes or No

"just popped in to add a few facts"

You have given no facts.

And one should not declare victory when they haven't done anything ;)

"Appealling to authority"

Would you even accept data from that authority?

"There is a fact for ya Jimmy."

Actually, no..it's not a fact. Calling it so doesn't make it true Tired.

Curious, you keep saying "Jimmy" alot. Are you trying to garner an emotional response from one of my nicknames? You can do better than that..try.

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.
