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.

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?

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.

Hello I am an atheist.

Funding is everything for you isn't it. Just disregard the changes that have actually shown themselves and can be documented.

Like deglaciation. Like coral bleaching. Like abnormal seasonal deviations in weather patterns. Like permafrost thawing in areas where it didn't thaw before.

Oh and a good one. The Inuit having to coin new words to describe snow conditions. Since they are seeing the snow behave in ways they have never seen before.

Aaaah thats just meaningless.

Where do the deniers get their funding from? Hmmmm?

I forgot to mention documentaries on climate changes. Like Chasing Ice. But that will be shot down by you. Because....soccccciallistssssssss!!!!!!

A palin moment. No. What did I do wrong. LOL!

My favorite ones are National Geographic. Discover Magazine. LiveScience. I also follow stories in the news back to their sources and read that. Oh and Popular Science.

One of the big deciding factors for me though is this. Even without climate change would it not be better to shift ourselves away from finite resources onto more renewable ones. There are only so much carbon based resources left. Lets use it more efficiently and find alternatives that are open participants in the carbon cycle of this world.

So you tout someone who is funded by the Heartland Institute.

Awesome.

mythravere

I am open to debate. I go where the facts go. I can acknowledge when I am wrong.

You on the other hand are totally closed up on the issue.

You have your position and thats the end of it.

mythravere

Its something called reading. Its something called trusting the sources I look at. Its this thing called discernment.

Like I have said before I used to rail against climate change and mans hand in it. I used the same exact arguments you used. But then I decided to take a totally unbiased look at it. And you know what there is a strong case for it.
