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.

More people are accepting the scientific consensus. Meanwhile, the consensus grows among climate scientists, albeit slowly.

In a new study called “Quantifying the consensus on anthropogenic global warming in the scientific literature” published May 15, scientists looked at 12,000 peer-reviewed climate change papers published by 30,000 authors over 20 years to see what percentage agreed that climate change is caused by humans.

“The number of papers rejecting AGW is a miniscule proportion of the published research, with the percentage slightly decreasing over time. Among papers expressing a position on AGW, an overwhelming percentage (97.2% based on self-ratings, 97.1% based on abstract ratings) endorses the scientific consensus on AGW.”

Note: the percentage of rejectors declined, albeit slightly.

Of the 1200 authors who responded to a request to give an opinion, only 39 rejected the consensus.

A more recent survey of six year olds trusted the Tooth Fairy by a higher majority than the Easter Bunny. 19 years and people have caught on. These trusted scientists sell themselves to the highest bidder.

Versus intellectuals that want to keep their grants coming and don't know which ends up? Those hypocrites that stir the pot and then sell out to evil hydrocarbon producers when the money's right, laughing at their believers.

Thought you were now selling fifteen year old magazine subscriptions without the promise of a big check. Funny the article dates from the same time as the bull started piling up. Coincidence? Also don't believe in coincidence.

Your blindness is not an asset.

We are not "giving up" freedoms. They are being stolen from us. We no longer have the basic right to lead our own lives, make our own decisions, and spend our hard earned money as we choose.

The power grabs of the Obama administration have turned us into environmental slaves. Can you decide to buy a large sized comfortable car that your grandma can get in and out of?

Can you buy your child a Happy Meal with more than 3 French fries in it???

Can you pay your own medical bills and not be forced to have insurance?

Can you send your child to required schools and know that history facts are taught instead of socialist ideology?

Can anyone build a new power plant and power it with coal???

He tries to control our speech. ( Don't say illegal immigrant, anymore,folks)

The list could go on forever.

Who specifically says there hasn't been warming in 10 years? I say check your source!

" Too much data shows many cycles of climate over recorded history"

But the thing is the current warming can not be accounted for by natural causes. At least the bulk of it. There are natural variables at play. But none of them can account for all the warming.

You do know we have taken billions of tons of carbon out of the ground and set it loose into the atmosphere?

That has consequences.

Your money and your freedoms are products of your government, and the ice sheets aren't melting because of the actions of a wizard behind a curtain in the land of oz. I do know that I enable a greater potential for passive solar heat, if my collection medium isn't reflective of the sun's rays.

The one item I could never come to grips with was the size of earth. 70% water 20% uninhabitable and how much of that remaining 10% is actually inhabited? 1/2 a percent? And in a hundred or so years we have caused global warming? Yes,you are right I don't understand the data.

It is my opinion that it is a well documented reality, tiredofit.Do you require a self verification of this process?

Another Night of Cold Temperatures for the Central U.S.

Well below normal temperatures will continue overnight from the Plains to the Ohio Valley. Freezing temperatures will extend southward into Oklahoma and across to Tennessee. Numerous Frost Advisories and Freeze Warnings are in effect. Sensitive plants could be damaged by these cold temperatures in this region.

When someone makes a post on here when none has been made in any of the forums for awhile it usually moves it up to the top of the list.

Is it strange at all that I knew you thatsabsurd was the one who had made a post before even seeing it?

Not once has the conclusion of the Climate scientesteeess made it through a vetting process. This is a process the scintific feild uses to determine if PROPER Science METHODS were used to obtain a conclusion............................never happened not once, ever, never, notta, never ever not even once.

The crap that climate scientesteeees put forth has been declared by the science community as garbage.

So the Climate scintesteees vet themselves. This is like a criminal exonerating himself, Its garbage myth...........face the truth or remain an imbecile forever.

Oops, 37 hours , not minutes. That makes it all worth while, doesn't it.

Germany is spending 110 billion for solar power that will delay global warming by 37 minutes by the year 2100. Big bang for the bucks? Don't think so.

A warming climate cant totally stop cold weather patterns at this point.

By the way. A warming climate can totally stop cold weather patterns at this point. The polar areas are still areas of extreme cold.

But look at seasonal variations in weather patterns that are abnormal.

Winter this year almost seemed as if it came later than normal.

Also the snow storms we seen this year. Thats is a result of more energy and moisture in the atmosphere.

Its all about cause and effects.
