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 think it's great news. If it were a result of CO2, there'd be little hope for it to end. Given the amount of our food California grows, droughts in CA hurts the entire country.

Yes. That new study is good news for Americans.

His mother wasn't much of a doctor either (IMO) although I understand she hosted some really Wiz-Bang parties!

Stillhere - I think "Harry" IS an attorney and I think I know which one.

"God darnit, Mr. Anderson, you use your tongue prettier than a twenty dollar wh-ore."

Maybe you should have been an attorney!

And such tactics "generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion.”

Or, in the words of my original response, it foils rational discourse.

“An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion.”

I’d say changing the subject from

1.climate change to the 2014 election to

2. my politics to

3.county of residence to

4. the origin of man

all iwithin a couple of hours, qualifies as posting “… irrelevant or off-topic messages.”

and I’d say calling people “useful idiots” and “frauds” qualifies as posting “inflammatory” messages.

As for having “the primary intent of provoking other users,” I’ll not make that charge. I’m no mind reader.

However, you might want to do some soul-searching on that score, IMHO.

“Tea party challenges to Republican senators are fizzling across the country, leaving Mississippi as the only state where a longtime Republican officeholder is seriously endangered by a primary threat from his right.”

And of course, the challenge in Mississippi also failed. The Republican Party moved back to its traditional pragmatism and away from the firebombs.

Has anyone stated that we much submit to the government.

Better yet don't get angry at the government. Get angry with the "citizens" of this nation for electing such an inept group of nitwits.

Here’s one example of how Republican-leaning folks repudiated the right.

“The U.S. Chamber of Commerce says it will back ‘pro-business’ candidates against Tea Party-styled opponents in this year’s elections, largely in response to conservative lawmakers fueling last year's partial government shutdown fight.”

"I have led by example"

Once again, I don't care where you live. I've never asked. It's funny that you congratulate yourself on answering a question that hasn't been asked, and about which nobody cares.

"Harry, set the record straight."

Why do you care where I live?

"I don't care, just don't expect me to believe it"

This is too hilarious.

Since I've never said I live in Wood County, why on earth would I expect you to believe it?

"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?

harryanderson

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

Posted 568 days ago.

harryanderson

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?

harryanderson

"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.
