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.

The dependence on fossil fuel energy sources since the industrial revolution has undoubtedly shaped economic prosperity for the developed world. However, an unfortunate by-product of fossil fuel combustion is the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), an important greenhouse gas that is known to influence long-term climatic variations through its ability to absorb infra-red radiation.

Human emissions of CO2 have resulted in atmospheric levels higher than any period over the last 20 million years. The continued emission of CO2 will lead to widespread climate change related impacts. ~~Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) UNSW Australia, Sydney NSW 2052 Australia

Since reducing our use of fossil fuels is desirable for a number of reasons, what do you think of the revenue-neutral carbon tax proposals?

We have given you several and you refuse them , now please answer the question! Where does Faux get their "research" ?????? Who funds that ????? Who's agenda are they following ????? And most of all Who's agenda are you following ?Pretty easy so why do you delay ? Because you are obviously spouting the right-wings talking points so why not admit it !

Those proportions come from a look at Fox News coverage of climate change in 2013, when UCS found 50 segments to examine for accuracy. Of those, 72 percent “included misleading portrayals of the science." The breakdown goes further than the network-wide coverage, delivering a sharp elbow to one of the Erik Wemple Blog’s favorite shows on cable news:www ,ucsusa. org/scienceorspin

Still avoiding the answer aren't you tiredbrain ? Where does Faux get their "research" ?????? Who funds that ????? Who's agenda are they following ????? And most of all Who's agenda are you following ?Pretty easy so why do you delay ? Because you are obviously spouting the right-wings talking points so why not admit it !

The big problem with this issue is that well monied interests cast a significant amount of doubt on this issue.

Thats unfortunate because of people like tiredofit.

People like Tiredofit have taken that doubt and cocooned themselves in it and refuse to come out.

And I think it should be said that the doubt thats been put out there. Is totally unfounded.

And as far as the "proof" you did "provide" its one tiny controversial subject.

As such there are still large amounts of evidence supporting mans role in causing an uptick in our planet's temperature.

All you did was go after the low hanging fruit.

I expected as much.

I will be specific now.

You say man has no role in causing climate change therefore that leads one to assume that you believe its a natural phenomenon.

Ok provide proof of that position. But I must add for the record that you go back and forth between saying that warming isn't due to man and say that there hasn't been any warming at all.

Thats a glaring inconsistency on your part.

I hate to inform you of this but you didn't provide any proof of anything.

You took one issue that has nothing to do with your position and absolutely nothing to do with the information I requested and floated that as your proof.

You even plagiarized it! OMG LOL!

Copy and pasting will be disregarded.

"SO after dealing with all the morons in the room does ANYONE ELSE wish to provide PROOF that man is causing a change in the climate?"

Man you really showed your arrogance with post. Good job pal!

I don't reject the existence of god out of hand.

There just isn't any kind of proof to support the existence of any ones god at all.

The only other sentient beings we know are ourselves.

And in case you haven't disregarded that science too. Astronomy tells us the universe is quite large and the potential for other sentient beings who might quite possibly be older than us is highly likely.

Religion is nothing more than a security blanket for the ignorant and fearful.

But now onto other things.

"something that Kendall mocks"

Why do you lie so much? I never have mocked God. I've mocked you quite a bit but nothing sacrilegious about that.

"you guys cannot point to a single provable fact that shows Man is causing a change in the climate."

There is a difference between cannot and will not. Your behavior on here is a leading reason why people will not provide proof. Your past behavior has shown everyone on here you are intellectually dishonest and very closed minded.

What a complete waste of effort ! The brain washing is complete with this one ! I bet your ancestors were standing around outside of Noahs ark saying to each other , so its raining , the research was funded so therefore flawed, it surely wont flood the earth ! !

You still haven't answered some very simple questions . Where does Faux get their "research" ?????? Who funds that ????? Who's agenda are they following ????? And most of all Who's agenda are you following ?Pretty easy so why do you delay ?

Tiredbrain sure likes hearing itself talk even when its wrong ! There have been numerous sites posted for your perusal that are reputable that say that yes we have a problem and yes its most likely man has a hand In it !Now if you choose to nitpick and deny the problem that's your affair b! But like I said sticking ones head up ones rump isn't going to solve anything ! Yeah , please don't duck !

"you're asking me to believe you instead of the experts. No sale."

Good point Harry.

Why are you more dependable on this topic than the experts Tired?

"provide proof"

So..since a person doesn't provide proof to your standards (whatever those are), then you have concluded there is no proof? Wow...what an ego.

"I knew you'd reject the 43 papers without looking at them."

It shouldn't surprise anyone that he did. No real point in referencing them to him anyway, he wouldn't begin to understand them.

"is that not open to anyone to author???"

Go down to the bottom of the pages and you'll see something unfamiliar to you...citations. You could learn a lot there Tired.
