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.

Why would I worry about the respect of those I have no respect for?

Posted 781 days ago.

It appears to me Kendall has dug himself a deep hole of disrespect, and being endorsed by a fake WV republican won't help.

"If you cannot control the weather, you cannot control the climate."

Since you seem to need it:

Climate- is a measure of the average pattern of variation in temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, precipitation, atmospheric particle count and other meteorological variables in a given region over long periods of time. Climate is different than weather, in that weather only describes the short-term conditions of these variables in a given region.

Weather- is the state of the atmosphere, to the degree that it is hot or cold, wet or dry, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy.

I never mentioned anything like that. You're reaching.

"If you cannot control the weather, you cannot control the climate. Where is the proof that MAN can control his climate?"

Can man control a factory? Yes. Can man control how much pollution goes in the air? Yes. Can man directly control what pollution from those factories do to the climate? No.

If an idiot is playing with a loaded gun and it fires, puts a bullet into his body and kills him...are you going to ask why he didn't control the bullet? No, the obvious response is that when you play with something dangerous such as a gun or a factory dumping tons of pollution in the air you are bound to get uncontrollable results.

That's funny.

Tiredofit comes on a thread I originated--which he has sworn to boycott, by the way--and tries to exclude me from the discussion.

No sale.

"GLOBAL WARMING IS A FRAUD AND THE PLANET DOES HEAT AND COOL."

No one denies that here. But the discussion on Climate Change is whether mankind, the dominant species on the planet, influences climate change on a global scale. It would be as silly as ignoring the sun in the sky to think humanity doesn't influence climate.

Harry, I invite you to our discussion.

"Global warming is just QUARTER what we thought"

Or...

Global warming is 25% worse than what deniers believed.

Tiredofit,

If you aren't tying climate change to the hurricane season, why are you bringing the hurricane season up on a thread devoted to climate change?

"Exactly what does a weather forcast have to do with global climate change?"

Very very little.

However, the weather people see has a significant impact on their belief in anthropogenic climate change.

Uneducated people and those whose political agendas drive their actions trumpet the weather.

Thinking people understand that climate refers to prevailing weather patterns over decades and centuries, so they don't confuse climate and weather.

Ithink, the arctic is warming and the ice is melting. (h t t p://climate.nasa.g o v/news/1014

Exactly what does a weather forcast have to do with global climate change?

If weather indicates climate change, does that mean the super cyclones in the Pacific and 20+ inches of snow in Israel prove that climate change is real?

"Top climate scientists admit global warming forecasts were wrong"

But that doesn't mean global warming is wrong, just the forecasts.

Posted 781 days ago.

Would you believe anything a notorious liar said? Basing a huge part of our economy on facts ,or lies, by his ilk,is crazy.

Surely Kendall with your vast knowledge, you know heat has been discovered under Antarctica. And it was not caused by burning WV coal.

"the massive fraud committed by the highest pàid EPA employee"

And how is this evidence that what the EPA has been saying about Climate Change is wrong?

Ice building in the artic isn't evidence that Global Warming isn't happening. You have to look at the whole world...that's where "Global" comes in when talking about Global Warming.

In Sept of this year, Bloomberg reported that ice was melting faster in Antartica and Greenland. Does this counter your artic ice growth?

Posted 782 days ago.

Look ar the NBC story linked on Drudge about the massive fraud committed by the highest pàid EPA employee. These kinds of criminals have been making decisions that affect us drastically. It is a disgrace.

And ice is building up in the Artic. And they keep searching to prove their mythical view, but global warming proof is just not there.

Republican harry, you take care of your affairs and I will look after mine.

“We have always had climate change. Always will. You don't own it. “

I agree. We’ve always had climate change. And now anthropogenic climate change, added to the natural variations we’ve always had, may threaten our way of life.

I also agree that I don’t own it. We all own it. When will you own your contribution to the problem? When will you help find a solution?

The media seems to make a big deal about the outlier use of sporing rifles in homicides, don't they? Makes about as much sense, I just thought snow in the mideast was a precursor to Hades freezing over and the world would be overrun with peace. Nah, just an odd occurrence.
