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.

"Hope math or science is NOT involved."

Try "are" next time numbnuts before you try to correct others.

mythravere: you wrote "Hey I might make 11 bucks an hour." i just wanted to comment that i think one should never feel ashamed or feel the need to defend or justify their wage to anyone. honest work is honest work. it shows that you have convinced someone or some entity that you offer a service to them that is worthy of compensation. as much as you use the scripture in less than palatable ways sometimes, the parable regarding compensation seems rather appropriate and often times forgotten in the argument by some concerning "Fair Wage".

The funny thing is that with the job I am in or at least certain aspects of it. You want people to do the job right. Otherwise someone could get hurt or killed.

As a matter of fact I know of a guy right now who complains he isn't paid enough and his job quality is subpar because of that. By his own choice.

They pretend to pay him and he pretends to work.

Think long and hard about that sport.

Hey I might make 11 bucks an hour but hey it aint like I am a millionaire with the supposed intelligence to attain that wealth who squeals about religious rights being trampled on but wants to introduce restrictions on women's reproductive rights and gays.

So much for being against government control and all that eh?

I guess thats the type of hypocrisy that only chit tons of money can buy.

LOL!

So I take it by your comment that anyone who makes less than you is some kinda piece of crap right?

I have to ask. Why is it that you republipukes have such a problem with low to lower paid workers?

Man if things were the way the right wanted them especially the business end of the party low paid people would be making less.

"Wow Tired, do you ever try to back up any of your claims on the subject of man made climate change?"

The chances of that happening are the same chances a wing has in gaining lift in a vacuum.

Wow Tired, do you ever try to back up any of your claims on the subject of man made climate change?

Or do you like the head in the sand approach?

About that overwhelming 97-98% number of scientists that say there is a climate consensus…

You mean dis right eh mon?

Googleate that. Aye captain?

Oh and for the record I was not calling you names. Calling you a name would entail me declaring you something that you are not using dramatic language.

I used words to describe you.

I bet you didn't know they could do that did ya?

Oh well off to plot world domination with my fellow socialist...toodles!!!

LOL! Bwhahahahahaha!!!

Care to offer a rebuttal to the article that I cited that you chose to ignore for some reason?

Pssst all you have to do is show me why its all wrong. But you won't do that.

Why? Psssst. I thinks its because you are an idiotic coward.

Like I said to Ithink. If you got the info and know its true why would you hold it all back and not set the record straight?

Because dishonesty.

For future reference you may want to ask me if that is something that really matters to me.

It doesn't. Missing glaciers now thats a whole nother story. The same with a multitude of environmental effects that can be attributed to a warming planet that I am still waiting for you tell me why its all natural.

Did I cite that poll or whatever as a lynchpin of my argument? I dont think so.

No what I did was point out that you erroneously cited Harry as talking about 97% of scientists as in all scientists from all fields of science. Harry mentioned climate scientists.

I was correcting you sir! ;)

Uh yea I think that could be categorized as a swing and a miss!

Tiredofit Harry didn't say scientists but this"I’ll leave it to the 97% of all climate scientists".

That would be 97% of scientists whose speciality is the climate.

Subtlety and nuance...something that takes a sharp mind to discern.

But of course completely lost on the dullards that make up some rightwing circles.

The graph below couldn't be clearer: when El Niño is in effect, global temperatures tend to go up; when its close cousin La Niña dominates, it has a dampening effect on warming.

This is a key insight, because often skeptics claim that we can't blame global warming on human causes. Rather, they say, climate change should be chalked up largely – or only – to natural variability in weather and climate patterns.

Instead, Trenberth says the two can't really be separated. “There’s a tremendous amount of natural variability that goes on," he said.

“When human-induced climate change is influencing things in the same direction that the weather, or the natural variability, is already going – that’s when we break records," he added. "That’s when we really see the effects standing out."
