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.

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!

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.

You and Tiredofit are just blowing wind.

One of those types of person who can never ever admit they are wrong.

Stay that course!

Where is your proof that I can't prove my assertions?

HAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH LOL!

OMG!

Ithink...lol...prove that I can't prove the claims that I am making!

Counter my claims with information that shows that I am wrong...and by extension the scientists are wrong.

HAHAHAHAH hilarious!

There is no info about the future. Only guesses. Much info about the past cannot be proved.

You can say I murdered someone ten years ago and tbere is NO way I can prove I did not.

No one is obligated to disprove your wild claims. It is up to you to prove them, and you can't.

"I do find it odd that you three seem to think I owe you proof of anything."Tiredofit

Hey if you want to make yourself look like a fool by all means go ahead.

But when arguing an issue it is essential for both parties to be willing to lay down the facts of why they think they are right.

Unwillingness to do so just makes the person refusing to do so look like they don't know what they are talking about.

Of course we already knew that.

I mean if you had the info why wouldn't a person lay it out on the table for consideration?

It just goes to show that your angle Tiredofit isn't an informational one. Its all about the politics of resistance to the opposing party.

"I do find it odd that you three seem to think I owe you proof of anything."

When one makes a positive claim, oddly enough..most people expect you to back it up with evidnece.

"The fact is the burden of proof is on YOU"

And you have been provided with evidence of it happening.

"and you have failed to convince me that you even understand the supposed evidence you are touting,"

We could give the same evidence to a dung beetle and just because they do not understand it doesn't make it not factual. What is also humorous is that you shouldn't care if we understand it at all. All you should care about is if you understand it.

"I have stated many times that I believe any change in climate IS a natural event PERIOD."

And that is a positive claim that should be backed up with evidence.

"I have history on my side."

No you don't.

"I wanted you to see,again, that not all climate scientists agree with all the warming hysteria."

And I am glad that most scientists are not in that hysteria. It doesn't benefit anyone to be on the fringes when it involves a topic this big and important to humanity.

No Tiredofit,

You don't have to provide evidence for what you say...

...not unless you want to convince somebody, that is.

Posted 325 days ago.

I seldom agree 100% with what anyone says. I wanted you to see,again, that not all climate scientists agree with all the warming hysteria.

As far as how old the earth is, I don't know. I am not a Bible expert. In translating from one language to another, words have different meanings. I believe " in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth". How and how long, I don't know or care.

Now, I have some paint to watch dry.

@Ithink- did you agree with Lindzen or not? And for curiousity sake...did you agree with it Tired. If you read any of it that is.

I daresay myth can change his mind if he encounters credible evidence. As for Kendall, I know he can because I’ve seen it happen.

I've not decided I can't be convinced. Just put forth the evidence and let me evaluate it.

Thanks for bringing this subject up in the context of the Bible. We need to distinguish between sin and sinner. Even the best of us slip and do wrong, but we don't need to be condemned.

If we can't judge works, or actions, we can't tell when we are wrong ourselves.

That's why I always aim to criticize a person's actions, rather than ascribe a bad characteristic to him or her.

Posted 325 days ago.

harryanderson

True. But I didn't judge you. I judged some of your posts.

If you feel you've been judged, it's not by me; it's by the Bible versus I cited. The Bible says that it's words are useful for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction.

Name calling is judging people, and that's not our job.

We should judge works against the Bible. By their works you will know them.

This subject gets nore boring every day. The only reasons it has any importance whatsoever is the terrible loss of jobs and our wasted taxes caused by this cult of tree huggers and money grabbers.

Harry brings up a good point about political motivations influencing one's position on various subjects.
