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.

According to a Duke study, many conservatives fear accepting the scientific consensus on climate change because they fear the proposed solutions.

Lead author Troy Campbell said, “In other words, does what we call 'solution aversion' exist? We found the answer is yes. And we found it occurs in response to some of the most common solutions for popularly discussed problems."

Conservatives were shown evidence that the temperature would rise, then asked to look at two proposed solutions: one that emphasized taxing and one that emphasized empowering the free market. Of the first group, only 22% believed the evidence. Of the second, 55% believed.

We shouldn’t let fear of big-government liberal solutions blind us to facts. If we do, we cede the issue to the socialists. This is critical. We need to fight for conservative solutions to real problems.

In Internet slang, a troll (/'tro?l/, /'tr?l/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[3]

Cold snaps like the ones that hit the eastern United States in the past winters are not a consequence of climate change. Scientists at ETH Zurich and the California Institute of Technology have shown that global warming actually tends to reduce temperature variability.

(CNSNews****) – The Earth’s temperature has “plateaued” and there has been no global warming for at least the last 18 years, says Dr. John Christy, professor of atmospheric science and director of the Earth System Science Center (ESSC) at the University of Alabama/Huntsville.

“That’s basically a fact. There’s not much to comment on,” Christy said when CNSNews**** asked him to remark on the lack of global warming for nearly two decades as of October 1st.

Ohwiseone,

My post wasn't directed at anyone in particular; I was making a general observation.

Harry , do you really want to engage in a discussion with a lying troll who despite what proof you show , it will only deny it ? Much like Fred I'm coming to the conclusion that No #1 I don't want to banter with a liar , No#2 it really is fruitless !

The Haskins quote comes from humanevents.co m/2014/12/24/a-conservatives-case-for-global-warming/

Indeed. Prominent Republicans are ignoring the anti-science propaganda and focusing on solutions.

Thune asks what we’re going to do about it and Haskins declares the “real debate” involves discussing the “validity of solutions.”

That’s exactly what I’ve been saying here. Take global warming out of the childish political wars and debate responses to it.
