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.

Ah, I see you are referencing your 1980's roots again.

Poor Tired, have you utterly gave up on having mature conversations?

You can't back up barely anything you talk about on here and you don't have the good sense to learn to keep quite around your superiors.

"shall we talk about your rejection of scientific fact"

The topic is about Global Warming, I don't recall Harry rejecting any science involving it.

Tired, do you have proof that Harry has rejected science involving global warming? Think slowly on this since the topic is global warming. Bait and switches don not apply here.

How shocking, another ad hominem attack by Tired.

Instead of showing that the info from UCS is incorrect for Harry, he attacks Harry.

You're going after the messenger and ignoring the message. That's called an ad hominem attack.

You demonstrate, Tiredofit, that you're unable to refute the UCS's study or methodology.

Isn't a sad that in our nation people will spout off "Conservative" or "Liberal" as if they were insults?

The news media is especially bad about doing that anymore.

The UCS is regularly criticized by conservative, libertarian and right-wing groups for being "left-wing" and "liberal". David Martosko of ActivistCash**** asserts that the organization harbors a "pro-regulation, anti-business" agenda. The UCS has also been criticized by inidividuals who reject the theory of global warming. Wiki. No bias from any of those concerned scientists. Right.

"chucky cheese"?

Lol...sounds like someone is a child of the 80's.

Wow...are you always this full of yourself? What an ego.

Tired, Exactly what do you want more? Factual information or the journalistic version of panem et circenses?

Of course the unwashed masses likes the entertainment news that has a lot of yelling and flashes of women's legs than borning ol facts. Doesn't mean they are more intelligent or up to speed on what is important in the world.

People like Tiredofit can never be convinced of the truth.

Even if they know that what you are saying is true...they will deny it.

The only reason they take issue with man made climate change is because of political reasons.

The reason they find it wrong is because its something put on the table by the left. And that is the only thing they need to know to say that it is false,lie,a fraud or whatever.

The facts surrounding the issue are meaningless. Because no matter how much you try to show them the truth...no matter how many facts of theirs are refuted...everything you say is a lie and the facts about the issue that support its truthfulness are false.

I suspect some here won’t accept the evidence that we have presented because they receive only information from sources who mislead them. A recent study from the Union of Concerned Scientists analyzed cable news networks’ climate change stories for evidence of misinformation. They found:

CNN was accurate 2/3 of the time.

Fox News was only accurate 28% of the time, with half of the misinformation coming from a single show—The Five.

MSNBC was the most accurate at 92%, “with some overstatements.”

LOL! Tiredofit you know what it means.

Why Ithink? Are you saying that global warming is happening but there is no one that knows why?

Posted 258 days ago.

If someone states what causes "global warming", Kendall, it needs to be labeled fiction.

Only one person running from questions here Tired...and that would be you.

@Tired, you must have missed it because you are focusing on "knob polishing": So what would happen if the dominant species of a planet would take fossil fuels, burn them for energy consumption and that burning adds more carbon to the atmosphere than the carbon cycle can deal with?

Take a few minutes, you might just yet figure it out. You do understand the carbon cycle yes?

I haven't slinked off nowhere. Just got lost in a rather gory film.
