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.

"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

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.

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?

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.

"We have always had climate change."

No one is debating whether it occurs or not. What the dicussion is about is whether mankind is effecting it in a manner that is negative for us.

Posted 985 days ago.

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

Posted 985 days ago.

Well, we sure aren't alone. Try reading more than environmental alphabet soup.

Kendall is, of course, correct.

Climate is "the composite or generally prevailing weather."

Calling a single weather event a trend has its counterpart in statistics: calling a single outlier a trend. We don't do that in statistics, and we shouldn't when speaking of climate.

Ithink and Tiredofit are making "much ado about nothing."

Yep..snow in Egypt proves climate change...right?

I mean, if cold weather can make you squawk that Global Warming is false...then odd snow storms in the Middle East must prove Climate Change is real. Right?

Drudge's stuff today keeps my blood pressure in better shape. :)

First snow seen in Cairo in 100 years. Lol

Too much heat from Al Gore's hot air exhaust has ruined the warmer's brain waves. Poor deluded souls.

Thatsabsurd

How are the Globewarmer imbeciles doing these days LOL LOL LOL

Random21,

I also think you may make a legitimate point about eliciting the desired response. The researchers asked this question:

“If nothing is done to reduce global warming in the future, how serious of a problem do you think it will be for the United States-- very serious, somewhat serious, not so serious, or not serious at all?”

I’m no polling expert, but I’ll make an observation that may support your point.

Including the words “serious problem” in all four categories may bias the response. I wonder how folks would answer were the categories serious problem, somewhat of a problem, little problem, or no problem.

I suspect we might get a different impression, but I don’t really know.
