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.

Some of the world's largest fossil fuel companies also recognize that GJG emissions are changing the climate.

"ExxonMobil believes that it is prudent to develop and implement strategies that address the risks to society associated with increasing GHG emissions."

h ttp://corporate.exxonmobil.c om/en/environment/climate-change/climate-policy

"At Chevron, we recognize and share the concerns of governments and the public about climate change. The use of fossil fuels to meet the world's energy needs is a contributor to an increase in greenhouse gases (GHGs)—mainly carbon dioxide (CO2 )—in the Earth's atmosphere."

5. 54% of Americans believe that, "the climate change we are currently seeing is largely the result of human activity."

32% do not agree that man is not involved.

Isn't that strange? If 52% of Americans believe that global warming is a natural event..shouldn't those that disagree that man is involved be much higher than 32%?

That's the thing about surveys..it tells you what the general population thinks....not what reality is.

Ipsos has done a survey on the theme of global warming and the results aren't that shocking. Keep in mind though that survey results do not confirm or deny reality, they just show us how the general public sees reality.

1. Out of the countries surveyed, only 57% of Americans believe that we are heading toward environmental disaster if we do not change our habits. 91% of Chinese believe we are.

2. 50% of Americans believe that the govt is using environmental issues as an excuse to raise taxes. The most that believe this is Spain at 73%

3. 43% of Americans believe that, "scientists don't really know what they are talking about on environmental issues."

4. 52% of Americans believe, "the climate change we are currently seeing is a natural phenomenon that happens from time to time". The general percentage of countries fall at 41% on this question.

Yeah, but I always like to point out his errors because some poor fool out there might believe his factless trollisms.

Even if he believes what he says he'll never back up anything he says.

His whole point is to trigger a response from one of us.

Just for giggles.

Actually Tiredofit also stated a while back that there is no warming at all.

He's just a troll. He's just doing this for kicks.

Let's break this down into simpler bites for you Tired.

1. No one has claimed that all climate change is due to mankind.

2. The average temperature for the entire planet is warmer now than it was 100 years ago.

3. The average temperature of the planet for the last 17 years is hotter than the previous 17 years.

4. CO2 is a greehouse gas capable of trapping heat.

You yourself have admitted that the world is getting warmer and that the climate changes. Why are you so against the facts that man can effect the global climate?

If NASA says that Mars and Pluto are warming up....do you beleieve them?

Yes or No

If NASA says that CO2 contributes to climate change...do you believe them?

Yes or No

"just popped in to add a few facts"

You have given no facts.

And one should not declare victory when they haven't done anything ;)

"Appealling to authority"

Would you even accept data from that authority?

Posted 39 days ago.

Tiredofit

Not gonna feed your need to argue Jimmy, just popped in to add a few facts and wind your watch a little. Mission accomplished, as you were.

Posted 39 days ago.

Tiredofit

You have no proof that man is causing any change in climate, none zero nadda zip. You can keep repeating your lies but it does not make it so.

Posted 39 days ago.

Tiredofit

No facts again Jimmy? Appealling to authority again?

"There is a fact for ya Jimmy."

Actually, no..it's not a fact. Calling it so doesn't make it true Tired.

Curious, you keep saying "Jimmy" alot. Are you trying to garner an emotional response from one of my nicknames? You can do better than that..try.

As for evidence that CO2 does have an effect on the climate, I refer you back to NASA. They have many reports on the subject and you approve of NASA.

At least you did when they give reports that you approve of.

" I have as much proof of anything I have posted.."

Deflection, try again Tired.

You have made a claim, you are responsible to offer facts for that claim if you want to be taken seriously or have any respect for yourself as an intelligent being.

Tiredofit

I guess the Forbes article accurately described useful idiots.

Tiredofit

Lol little Jimmy, I have as much proof of anything I have posted as you do that co2 is causing the planet to warm. There is a fact for ya Jimmy

"of course the climate changes, always has, always will."

Hmm, seems someone is trying to form a strawman. No one on here has denied that climate changes.

The only denier on here are those that think the dominant species on the planet has not effect on the climate.
