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.

Quite, Kendall.

Since 1880, global surface temperatures have increased 1.4 degrees F., which is enough to upend the balance on which we depend.

According to NASA:

“Global sea level rose about 17 centimeters (6.7 inches) in the last century. The rate in the last decade, however, is nearly double that of the last century.”

“The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have decreased in mass.”

“Both the extent and thickness of Arctic sea ice has declined rapidly over the last several decades.”

“The number of record high temperature events in the United States has been increasing, while the number of record low temperature events has been decreasing, since 1950. The U.S. has also witnessed increasing numbers of intense rainfall events.”

NASA lists others.

The earth’s climate is like a baby. A few degrees of temperature rise disrupts it.

"Earth’s average surface temperature has warmed by about 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit"

What's the difference between 33 degrees and 31.6 degrees...the difference between solid and liquid.

What's the difference if you are one inch from the cliff's edge or one inch beyond the cliff's edge? Falling to your death.

What's the difference between saying a small word like "yes" or "no" when your significant others asks, "Does this make me look fat?"

A small difference can mean all the difference Stillhere.

"lets start with the admitted maring of errpr in NASSA data"

And how does that disprove all the facts showing climate change due to humanity is happening?

That's right...it doesn't.

You seem to lean on ignorance as your main answer to everything. I suppose you also believe in the God of the Gaps. You obviously have no real scientific answer to why the climate is changing, so you approach the problem with your head in the sand and basically say, "Nope...not happening..nope nope...not happening."

"Most of the southern slave owners were republicans !"

Evidence? I'm just curious how your conjured up that statement.

Stop denying research and findings or just go away !

I see as always you have nothing to add as your mental capacity restricts you. Comment on the NASSA data or go away, your choice

So you on the socialist left wish to give govt control over our energy sector based on that! Foolish at best

By their OWN DATA the total warming they claim falls within the margin of error.

Posted 51 days ago.

Stillhere

for recent years the error bar for global annual means is about ±0.05°C, for years around 1900 it is about ±0.1°C. The error bars are about twice as big for seasonal means and three times as big for monthly means.

Also according to NASSA

according to NASSA

Since 1880, Earth’s average surface temperature has warmed by about 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8 degrees Celsius),

It shows your desperation that you quibble over which year was warmest by a very small amount.

Hmmmmmm pot have you seen kettle?
