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.

“Compression of population centers and controls of food and water resources are gonna be significant issues in any case.”

Unless the warming trend is arrested, that’s quite true. Whether it be voluntary or coerced (by either mankind or environmental change), it’s coming.

Meanwhile, amidst the hubbub and hoopla…

…climate scientists have become even more convinced that anthropogenic CO2 is harming the planet. New information is “steadily squeezing out the arguments by a small minority of scientists that natural variations in the climate might be to blame.”

The laws of physics are impervious to hubbub and hoopla.

Well the freaking oil companies have the money to make the truth come out. All they gotta do is pay off the scientists since that apparently is all it takes to get what you want said.

Why haven't they or the the ol Koch boys done that pray tell?

No answer for this?

Wouldn't the science of psychology be used to make that determination?

I guess if it found that I am indeed not crazy...we could just blame the funding right?

Harry Tireofit's mind is made up. Nothing you say or show will change that.

Repeat after me.

Its all the liberals fault. Its all the liberals fault. Its all the liberals fault. Its all the liberals fault. Its all the liberals fault.

Say that every waking moment so we can at last stand in solidarity with him.

Because he is right you know!

Good god Tiredofit you really are a sanctimonious phuck aren't you?

Apparently you don't get that some people are concerned with the legacy they leave those that that they care about.

You say AGW science is “nonsense.”

You might want to take a peek at the latest news, which provides evidence that scientists are growing more convinced that mankind’s activities are causing most of the recent global warming.

“Drafts seen by Reuters of the study by the U.N. panel of experts, due to be published next month, say it is at least 95 percent likely that human activities - chiefly the burning of fossil fuels - are the main cause of warming since the 1950s. That is up from at least 90 percent in the last report in 2007, 66 percent in 2001, and just over 50 in 1995, steadily squeezing out the arguments by a small minority of scientists that natural variations in the climate might be to blame.”

All the things you mention--privacy, healthcare, taxes, government debt, and jobs--are much more changeable than the laws of physics.

That galls me.

Here’s what galls me about this AGW stuff: I feel I worked a lifetime for nothing.

I slaved for 38 years to provide opportunities for my one child and two grandsons. While my friends sailed by in new pickups, I chugged along in cheap beaters. While my friends built 4-bedroom houses, I made do with 1800 square feet. While my friends forked over thousands for ski trips, football games and concerts, I put mine in Smart 529 accounts.

I did so because I believe Proverbs, which says, “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.”

And now this AGW, with its rising sea levels and other harmful effects, threatens the inheritance I’ve tried to leave.

Furthermore, almost all of my friends refuse to confront the problem. Some even deny that a problem exists.

I believed that hard work and dedication would ensure my two grandsons’ future. To my horror, it didn’t. Because of AGW, they won’t enjoy the opportunity for a better life that I sacrificed to provide them.

why Harry is silent on this issue, oh the Dinosaur thing I get it.”

Once again. I’m not terribly interested in dinosaur flatulence because dinosaur flatulence (animal methane emissions) isn’t jeopardizing the future of my grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

On the other hand, the rising sea levels referred to in Kunectdots’ blog reference are jeopardizing the future of my grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

You explain to me why if climate change is a lie that not one party has came forward to "fund" the answer to whether or not man has a hand in the other way?

Posted 907 days ago.

mythravere

Not just northern Ohio. I am pretty sure they'd be into WV too. Or at least nearby.

But we are in an inter-glacial period. So some of the melting can be chalked up to that. But it doesn't from my understanding account for all of the melting.

Explain that. Oh wait I already know.

Let me channel my inner Gollum here.

Soccccciallissstttssssssss. They takesss it fromsss usssss.

LOL! HAHAHAHAHAHAH

If funding is all it takes to get climate scientists to say man is causing climate change then it should be easy for them to be bought off and to be made to say that man has no hand in it.

Right?

But..that...aint....happening.

LOL!!!!

Surely the Koch's and the oil companies would have the dough to pay them off.

I would imagine a dino would emit rather large amounts of flatulence because they are big. No big story there.

Imagine how much methane that will come out of the tundra when it melts!!

If you put down CSM of course I am not going to read it.
