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.

Oh and for the record I was not calling you names. Calling you a name would entail me declaring you something that you are not using dramatic language.

I used words to describe you.

I bet you didn't know they could do that did ya?

Oh well off to plot world domination with my fellow socialist...toodles!!!

LOL! Bwhahahahahaha!!!

Care to offer a rebuttal to the article that I cited that you chose to ignore for some reason?

Pssst all you have to do is show me why its all wrong. But you won't do that.

Why? Psssst. I thinks its because you are an idiotic coward.

Like I said to Ithink. If you got the info and know its true why would you hold it all back and not set the record straight?

Because dishonesty.

For future reference you may want to ask me if that is something that really matters to me.

It doesn't. Missing glaciers now thats a whole nother story. The same with a multitude of environmental effects that can be attributed to a warming planet that I am still waiting for you tell me why its all natural.

Did I cite that poll or whatever as a lynchpin of my argument? I dont think so.

No what I did was point out that you erroneously cited Harry as talking about 97% of scientists as in all scientists from all fields of science. Harry mentioned climate scientists.

I was correcting you sir! ;)

Uh yea I think that could be categorized as a swing and a miss!

Tiredofit Harry didn't say scientists but this"I’ll leave it to the 97% of all climate scientists".

That would be 97% of scientists whose speciality is the climate.

Subtlety and nuance...something that takes a sharp mind to discern.

But of course completely lost on the dullards that make up some rightwing circles.

The graph below couldn't be clearer: when El Niño is in effect, global temperatures tend to go up; when its close cousin La Niña dominates, it has a dampening effect on warming.

This is a key insight, because often skeptics claim that we can't blame global warming on human causes. Rather, they say, climate change should be chalked up largely – or only – to natural variability in weather and climate patterns.

Instead, Trenberth says the two can't really be separated. “There’s a tremendous amount of natural variability that goes on," he said.

“When human-induced climate change is influencing things in the same direction that the weather, or the natural variability, is already going – that’s when we break records," he added. "That’s when we really see the effects standing out."

"No upward trend in 15 years myth swing and a miss."

You sure about that?

I think this a good point to state that I feel your whole point in this little debate on here isn't based on disagreeing with the facts about climate change.

Its purely political in nature.

Rightwing marching orders went out and stated that to be a good little Conservative one has to resist this issue because...what else...socialism.

You are just standing in lockstep with your brethren!

Jesus Christ! Why is it so hard to understand that we have dumped a huge amount of a greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and that it's causing an upward trend in global temperatures?

No one can predict exactly the sea level rise or temperatures etc. But projections can be made from where temperatures were at in the past to where they are now and where they will be if the upward trend continues. The can model effects of this temperature increase too.

Also no natural phenomenon have been found to be the culprit of this.

At least I hope you would. Because what's the point in having the information that proves something is false and withholding that information?

Because that is essentially what you game is at this point.

You know the facts that have been stated about climate change are false but yet you refuse to lay your information out on the table.

WHAT IS THE POINT IN THAT?

I and the others have laid it all out why we believe the climatologists.

Since you take issue with that and you see fit to make comments about this issue the onus is upon you to state where we are getting it all wrong. The same for Tiredofit or anyone else.

Failure to do so is dang good way of making yourself look like a fool.

Each time we raise a point or show where you are wrong on one of your points and you do not counter it...and instead just sit back and say NO a freaking million times over....that shows your ignorance on the subject.

Its patently clear that if you had anything with which to counter what's been laid out about the truth of climate change....you would.

“I am not crazy enough to think I know the future temperature, water levels, ice thickness,etc of the earth. I'll leave that to the loons.”

I’ll leave it to the 97% of all climate scientists who agree that mankind’s activities are causing climate change.

Posted 314 days ago.

Myth, you are nuts. You do the proving. I am not crazy enough to think I know the future temperature, water levels, ice thickness,etc of the earth. I'll leave that to the loons.

But then again..maybe the reason you don't provide any info is because if you're not saying anything then there is nothing to be criticised about?

Oh gosh lol!

mythravere

I can but I need information. But you won't give me any.

Which begs a question.

If you aren't here to convince anyone of anything then why post about this issue at all?

Oh well thanks for the entertainment.
