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.

Well Kendall, do you have a problem with Marx?

Posted 61 days ago.

Marxism- "the political, economic, and social theories of Karl Marx including the belief that the struggle between social classes is a major force in history and that there should eventually be a society in which there are no classes"

Just curious Tired, what is it that you find offensive personally about Marxism?

Do you think that the conflicts between various social classes have not affected our collective history?

"Market considerations are one thing, market distortions introduced by govt is another."

K street lobbyists seek to have government distort the market to the advantage of their clients.

And who spends the most money on lobbyists?

You cannot honestly say that the whole global warming rhetoric has been ramped up as of late even though there is no warming in Years.

It's Marxist harry, the left thinks corporations only have too much power if they don't kiss the ring of the left, GE is not a greedy company because they play the game.

I want to change the last sentence in my last post, and say, "I've seen it done."

Here's another prediction:

The coal interests will abandon the little people who now support them when the coal runs out.

They've always done it before.

Coal and petroleum interests wield too much power in the US, according to leftists.

Government wields too much power in the US, according to rightists.

I agree with both. I'm skeptical of any bureaucracy, whether corporate or government, that seeks to rule.

"The leftwing socialists see the chance to take over the energy sector"

I predict the energy sector will change drastically because of market considerations. More and more homeowners in sunny climates are installing solar panels. Investors are building large solar installations like Ivanpah in the desert. Windmills are popping up in the windswept areas.

As a result of these "all of the above" solutions, power generation is becoming less centralized. This is good news for conservatives, since decentralized infrastructure makes it harder for "leftwing socialists...to take over the energy sector."

Conservatives should cheer this decentralization. Big business/big government types, however, should fear it.

And the market is doing it.

"I've seen no evidence of sampling bias in this poll. Have you?"

Of course he hasn't.

"I don't think the sample size is representative of the broad spectrum of America opinion..."

Do you have any evidence to back up what you "think"?

I've seen no evidence of sampling bias in this poll. Have you?

Tiredofit

The leftwing socialists see the chance to take over the energy sector slipping away, so the blitz is on. Anything to try and change the subject.

Tiredofit

We are in a propaganda campaign, so look for more of this.

I don't think the sample size is representative of the broad spectrum of America opinion and without knowing where the calls were made I wouldn't give it much weight personally. It encourages you so bet the farm if you like

So, Tiredofit, are you questioning the poll's methodology, and claiming the sample isn't representative of Americans?
