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.

Breitbart London!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you serious?

You whine like a baby missing its mothers teat about leftwing media bias then you offer that up.

Oh god now I know you're just trolling.

Couldn't really be that stupid.

But then again.

Then whoooo boy we get to watch O'l shotgun Cheney try and make out like Obama is to blame for the broken country that is Iraq.

Now who was it that went after oil in Iraq?

Oh sorry WMD's.

That dang Obamaner. He went and fudged up the ultimate in strategery thinking in the most excellent war of epic Freedom Fighting that was that war.

" A Media Trackers Florida analysis shows PolitiFact Florida targets Republicans with 11 times more ?Pants on Fire? rulings than Democrats."

HA! LOL! Did you ever stop and think Tiredofit that it could just be that Republicans are way more likely to make false statements?

Truth be told there is a huge amount of BS peddled by the right that is flat out false.

I mean we see on almost a daily basis them saying something that gets them in trouble whether it be lies,sexist comments or racist comments.

@Harry- I noticed that Tired hasn't answered your question about how it's bias. He hasn't even tried.

You shouldn't get so worked up, Tiredofit. It's bad for the heart.

Tiredofit, you wrote: "Counter climate????? Lol. So there are people that have an alternative climate????? Or want the climate to stop?"

You know something, Tiredofit? If you took care to read what I wrote before you start mocking what I write, you wouldn't look so foolish.

I wrote: " Did you notice the well-known figure in the counter climate change movement to whom the article referred?" See the word "change"?

You say you "don't trust a thing they print." I don't wonder, if you can't read what they print any better than that.

And did you note what that figure said about Goddard's claim that the data had been "fudged"?

How is the article biased, Tiredofit. Did you notice the well-known figure in the counter climate change movement to whom the article referred?

Hilarious that he can see the bias in the lefts stuff but just can't seem to notice it in the media he consumes. Even with it being so blatant.

For the right its not a difference of opinion any more its straight up bias that drives their foolishness.

Heck they dont even see the left or others as fellow citizens but more enemy occupiers.

When someone has gone that route. There's no reasoning with them at all.

"I read it and know that the bias is there"

Sounds like a classic case of truthiness.

Posted 218 days ago.

Politifact is, in reality, Tampa Bay Times politipinion. Yes, I invented a new word.

Kendall78

"Clearly there is a demonstrable bias there.."

And yet you have not demonstrated such bias anywhere.

Posted 218 days ago.

harryanderson

That wasn't the article to which I referred. I meant the article about falsifying the temperature record. Did you read it and find bias?

Posted 218 days ago.

Kendall78

"Why, it's a PolitiFact ruling from June, 2012 that calls this very same statement "half true.""

It appears your reading comprehension isn't up to par Tired. Read the whole article and then read the one about the Lie of the Year and you might understand.

Posted 218 days ago.

Kendall78

Tired, can you prove that the Times is influencing Politicfact?

Yes or No

Can you show that Politicfact behaves in a manner that is not professional?

Yes or No

From what I have seen from you and others, Politifact checks it's sources ans tries to contact those their articles are about. They rate both Conservatives and Liberals with the same scrutiny. If you are able to prove otherwise, please do. Otherwise you have failed to prove your argument.

harryanderson

So have you read the article and found bias in it?

Posted 218 days ago.

harryanderson

And as far as Politicact being "in the tank for Obama," I don't believe that. Politifact did give him their " lie of the year award." In view of that, how can you claim they're "in the tank" for him?

Posted 218 days ago.

Kendall78

If you actually did any research Tired, you will see that Politifact has found 54% of Obama stuff as half true, mostly false, false or pants on fire.

That sort of blows your conspiracy theory out doesn't it?

@Harry- it's apparent that he doesn't read much of anything beyond headlines

Posted 218 days ago.

harryanderson

Apparently you didn't read the article. If you had, you would know what famous skeptic said Goddard was wrong.

Posted 218 days ago.

Kendall78

"And why shouldn't that source be credible?"

How about you tell us why it should.
