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.

Stillhere, you posted,

"Yet the Nasa press release failed to mention this, as well as the fact that the alleged ‘record’ amounted to an increase over 2010, the previous ‘warmest year’, of just two-hundredths of a degree – or 0.02C. The margin of error is said by scientists to be approximately 0.1C – several times as much."

I'd like to check this out. I'm sure those aren't your words. From where did you lift that quote?

Monica is talking funding.She said"might".Maybe there was deception,maybe not. The point is,the authors stand by their word.There were fluctuations in temperatures all over the earth. There were many different instruments measuring land, water, and atmosphere, in muchos locations.The average was a small change, as one would expect. However, it is a fact,that it doesn't take much chage in land temperature,or rainfall or the warming or cooling of oceans currents to affect the behaviors of organisms.I don't trust 'big business'

This was not part of the report released. "Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all."

tired- those reports say it was the hottest year.

Do you have any verified info that says it isn't, tired?

I'd say moderation means that quibbling over the amount of warming in any particular year is far less important than the long-term trend of dramatic warming.

I don't understand this double posting.

We aren't building a piano, just a box to put it in. Just as we aren't trying to land a craft on Mars.

"Another analysis, from the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) project, drawn from ten times as many measuring stations as GISS, concluded that if 2014 was a record year, it was by an even tinier amount."

You can't prove that it wasn't. The margin of error is .71 of a degree F, either way.Trend is warming, not cooling.

And the heating of the oceans should be alarming to even greek.

But, it ain't cooling!!!

I agree. It's not true that 97% of all scientists agree AGW has catastrophic consequences.

But, as I said, 97% of respondents to a survey "who listed climate science as their area of expertise and who also have published more than 50% of their recent peer-reviewed papers on the subject of climate change. . . think human activity is a significant contributing factor in changing mean global temperatures.”

And those scientists who specialize in climate change and whose articles have stood the test of peer review are the experts, in my opinion. You disagree, and I'm okay with that.

Again. My statement is accurate.

I'm not responsible for what Barack Obama says. His statement earned Politifact's "lie of the year" award, not mine. My statement is accurate.

I'm not responsible for what Al Gore says, either.

I don't like much of what either of those guys say, despite your delusions to the contrary.
