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.

Umm...yeah, you do realize you didn't use my analogy right? You switch it in a very obvious manner.

Why wouldn't I have a good day? Seeing you screw this stuff up everyday gives me the smile I need to start the day :)

It didn't. If you gain 5 pounds every month for two years and then quit gaining...aren't you still fat? You have those odd notion that warming has to be perpetually growing at a constant rate without any deviation.

I'll play along with this weak analogy, if you ate a pizza everyday and gained five pound weekly then suddenly stopped gaining while still eating the same, yes you would still be fat but you couldn't blame the pizza as a cause, Ahhhhh that was easy

And guessing seems to be your strong suit, as well as being wrong

That's fine you don't have to answer, The questions are there to prompt thought for those who will.

I'm guessing that your personal motto on climate change is, "Think local, screw global."

When you answer my questions, I may feel the need to answer yours.

Records dating back millions of years or just a blink of an eye

Can you prove 2014 was the hottest on record?

Stillhere

Just when exactly was the climate right?

Why would that be a problem? Are there mile thick ice sheets over your head? If no that's a problem for you?

"to claim 2014 was the warmest on record"

Answer this, was 2014 warmer than 2004? 1994? 1984? 1974? 1964?

If the answer is yes, then there is a problem...right?

" it has been adjusted and manipulated so how can any of it be accurate?"

Do you have evidence that the vast majority of data has been adjusted or manipulated? Heck, I would be happy to see you prove that a simple majority of the data has been manipulated.

"If man was causing global warming, why did it magically quit 18 plus years ago?"

It didn't. If you gain 5 pounds every month for two years and then quit gaining...aren't you still fat? You have those odd notion that warming has to be perpetually growing at a constant rate without any deviation.

Where did you come up with that?

Stillhere

The data is not raw data, it has been adjusted and manipulated so how can any of it be accurate?

If man was causing global warming, why did it magically quit 18 plus years ago?? Oh wait it just changed what it was warming for no apparent reason , Yep sure sounds sciency to me lol

The warming being outside the margin of error applies to Harry's attempt to claim 2014 was the warmest on record

It comes from the same source that warmed us out of the ice age not man

Stillhere

No it's not obvious that it is, you just think it might be

"And not a bit of what you say can be linked to a man made cause."

Where do you come up with that? It's obvious it does. Why are you unable to comprehend that?

Maybe if you could give your evidence that clearly shows that all the climate change we have been discussing comes solely from another source...can you? I highly doubt it.
