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.

Yea I knew the Hunley was undergoing preservation efforts. I know the said it would take years to stabilize the materials of the vessel before it could go on permanent display.

So I think I'm going to wait until that happens before I go see it.

Oh well I got plenty of history to dig into around here to keep me occupied.

I'd like to volunteer at the local Museums but my work schedule won't permit it.

Oh well maybe eventually I'll be able to.

Yea the pictures from that war are chilling. I remember as a kid going to the library and checking out the whole series of Time Life books chronicling the Civil War.

Those images stick with you.

Speaking of the Hunley thats one I want to see also.

The went up to Fort Boreman and checked out the Replica. Neat as heck. To think those men crammed themselves into that thing.

I honestly don't think there is a better or really more concise book on that subject matter out there.

If there is I haven't run across it.

The Civil War is something that interests me too. Especially the advancement of weaponry during that time period.

Someday I really want to tour the battlefields. Probably start with Gettysburg.

But the one place that I absolutely plan on seeing is the Monitor Museum.

Hey Tiredofit if you haven't read it. I highly suggest getting a copy of Hardtack and Coffee. Its without a doubt one of the most interesting Civil War books I have ever read. You might enjoy it.

Oh I polish stuff just not knobs. I polish/clean and use vintage shaving instruments. Everything except straight razors that is.

Too expensive of an outlay to join that club.

Out of the papers that did give an opinion on the cause of Global Warming, 97.1% said it was due to mankind.

There has been talk about the 97% of scientists that support the concept that mankind is assisting in Global Warming.

Who are these scientists and in "some" people's minds...how much is the government paying them to say that?

The truth is, this isn't about any poll but about peer reviewed papers on the topic of Global Warming.

Out of 11,940 peer review papers on Global Warming: 66.4% gave no opinion on man made global warming 32.6% said it is happening due to man 1% rejected that man is causing it or wasn't sure

"if you think for one second I will do anything i am told by you or Kendall, you are quite deluded."

Yes, it is highly delusional to expect a person to answer relevant questions in a debate. What were we thinking?

And for the record, I never demanded you to answer the questions. I merely asked you to answer them and not to deflect them. However, you decided to cower behind silence.

"You assail my character"

Now thats hilarious in the highest degree!

Tiredofit you slander and mock anyone that doesn't agree with you.

No respect will be given when none is received.

Apologise for calling Harry a fraud.

Lets see the depths of your sincerity.

As far as the Gas/Jar test goes there is an easy way to remove doubt surrounding the heat-lamp issue.

Two jars. One with normal air in it and one with a measured amount of co2 added to its air mixture set outside..in direct sunlight with identical digital thermometers inserted through holes drilled in the lid and sealed.

I wonder how that would go?

I know where I'd place my bet.

"I am very tired of this debate for lack of a better term, it's going nowhere."

Make a good good argument built on facts that are believable and that hold up to scrutiny that isn't politically motivated then maybe it might go somewhere...for you.

"You assail my character while ignoring your little buddies.."

This is humorous, if he found problems in other people's character..do you believe it will make your bad behavior better in some way?

"...devisive and hateful tone that Haas permeated the discussion as it has here. I am as guilty as anyone I suppose, so no more."

Well, Tiredofit, It seems you're seeing that a "divisive and hateful tone" results in the debate "going nowhere."

So what are you gonna do about it? Are you ready for a more constructive conversation?

"I am very tired of this debate for lack of a better term, it's going nowhere."

If you would answer questions as you expect others to do, then the debate could move forward.

You are quite rude Tired. I answered your questions a long time ago on here and you constantly refuse to answer mine.

And here I thought you considered yourself a gentleman.

Yes or No

Why are you afraid of answering the question. Is it not simple enough?

Kendall78

These are simple questions Tired. Try answering them.

What are you afraid of?

I would guess it's because you know CO2 does retain heat but you are too prideful to admit it. It also bruises your ego some because the blog you cite from acknowledges that CO2 is a greenhouse gas but you only cherry pick from it when it seems to suit you.
