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.

"I don't care where you live but I know its NOT here. Can you say you live in WOOD COUNTY>? I doubt you can"

That's quite a revealing post. In the first sentence, you claim you don't care; then, in the second, you ask if I can say where I live.

Does this mean you'll stop making my place of residence an issue?

Does that mean you'll stop demanding to know where I live?

One is free to reveal personal information, but one shouldn't demand others' personal information.

And that's what you're doing. You keep demanding personal information.

"It shows WHO is the troll. One who participates in HIS local paper forum, or some person who feels the need to inject himself in others affairs."

Are you trying to make me feel unwelcome?

I don't care where you live, Stillhere. I never asked.

Why do you care where I live?

"Well settle the record Harry, DO YOU LIVE IN WOOD COUNTY CURRENTLY?"

Seems you do care where I live. Why?

"He claims to be FROM here which may or may not be true, don't know don't care."

If you don't care, why do you keep bringing it up?

Stillhere,

What "liberal" opinion have I espoused?

BTW: I don't consider climate science a liberal or conservative issue. The solutions may be liberal or conservative. I prefer the conservative solutions like those espoused by such Republicans as Bob Inglis.

I don't consider myself liberal or conservative. Such labels are for those who can't evaluate information for themselves.

“Was this a vow or were you just busy>?”

Both. I was busy, and I thought you stopped your name-calling ways. Maybe I underestimated the depth of your disdain.

So what do you do now? Do you keep trolling to keep me away?

I have the distinct feeling that "harryanderson" IS as Democratic as a Democrat CAN BE in Wood Co.

I see no thoughtful answers in your posts. I insults, but it doesn't take any thought to toss insults.

Now I hope you'll provide thoughtful answers to my questions, instead of your usual shotgun trolling to bury my posts.

“Did you celebrate OUR party victory in NOV Harry?”

The question isn’t relevant to the discussion, but I’ll address it anyways in the spirit of cooperaton.

Absolutely! We repudiated some candidates from the radical right, then won big in the general election. This should convince 2016 Republican presidential candidates that they don’t have to kowtow to the extremists. Also, it frees John Boehner from those whom John McKain called “wacko birds.”

So yes. When the power of extremists is diminished, I am always pleased. Maybe we Republicans can now elect a President.

“SO if we are NOT getting HONEST RESEARCH for our dollars, why put more into it?” It’s tragic that some government research goes for purely political purposes, like research used in Congressional investigations. Should we stop dishonest Congressional investigations? Yes, but I know not how. I desire honesty in government. But, to the point at hand, I know of no instances where climate scientists used government funding to produce dishonest research. Can you cite any examples where government dollars have provided dishonest research?

Now I’ll answer your questions. I’m not afraid.

“we exaggerate to prompt political action and gain funding, do you deny that”

I can’t deny that some have. I think we need better models, but nobody should engage in deceptive tactics. I believe in honesty. I notice your source didn’t provide any examples of funding obtained by deception. Do you know of any examples of funding obtained by deception?

Well, Stillhere, I never took a vow to stay away from here. I’ve just been too busy to play.

I see you didn’t answer my question, even though it followed logically from your post. Nevertheless, I’ll provide my answer. Yes, we need better models. If the models we’ve been using are accurate, it’ll cost us a lot of dough. Given the risks involved, we must have a good ability to predict future climate before we commit to a course. (Inaction is a course.)

So do you think we should reduce the scientific uncertainty and develop more reliable models?

Amen, Walt!

"Troll." "Dead end useful idiot."

No matter how long one stays away, when one returns, one will find Ohwiseone and Stillhere foiling rational discourse with their childish insults.
