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 the Scientific American article I cited, future surface temps will shoot up when the excess heat stored in the ocean emerges.

Climate scientist James Church estimated that the earth absorbs the energy of four Hiroshima atomic bombs each second. That’s a lot of horsepower to drop in a balanced system. Obviously, it will become unbalanced.

Some would argue that we aren’t adding much heat per square meter to earth. However, we must keep relativity in mind: it’s not the amount that matters; it’s the effect. For example, both fluorine and LPG gas can be harmful to breathe. NIOSH recommends workers not be exposed to more than 0.1 part/million of fluorine. On the other hand, the limits for LPG gas are 10,000 times greater at 1000/ppm. Flourine causes much more harm than LPG for the same amount.

A large majority of climate scientist believe the heat we’re adding to our balanced system will alter the climate. That’s the effect.

Are you sure you haven't had some sort of episode that has impacted your mental abilities??

. Last year was probably the warmest

LOLOLOL is this science???? What probability do you base this TOTAL HORSE SHEET on?

How much have temps risen HARRY? And what is the accuracy of that data????

Your assertions fall flat and fail to convince as they are easily shown to be faulty. Nice try but repeating your nonsense does not make it true. The margin of error is greater the. The supposed warming HARRY sorry but it's true. I know how much you are committed to your cause

There was a report I read in the recent past that said many who really understand what is happening have attributed the slowdown of heating to the eruption of a couple volcanos, and that lull in heating will end with the flushing out of the atmosphere.

Forward-thinking, sober-minded Americans in the private sector have turned their attention to solving the problem, despite government paralysis. When this happens, our capitalist system functions as designed.

Let’s all be part of the solution before big government robs us of more of our freedom by imposing a solution on us. Let us use non-carbon fuel sources as much as possible. It’s right for America’s future.

Congressional paralysis isn’t the answer to Obama’s reckless climate initiatives. We can best thwart Obama’s executive orders by taking responsibility. Remember, those who refuse to accept responsibility for their own actions always wind up losing their freedoms.

I like being free. Anybody with me?

The debate is over. Even the oil companies who formerly funded the contrary position now acknowledge that greenhouse gases are causing global warming. Like Tom Zeller writes in Forbes magazine, the politics and culture on this issue are shifting.

htt p://ww w.forbes.co m/sites/tomzeller/2015/01/18/the-end-of-the-partisan-divide-over-climate-change/

And, as I pointed out yesterday, 54% of conservative Republicans are ready to accept the science of global warming and address it.

Some will never accept this change of attitude.

More practical folks, however, have moved on. The API (American Petroleum Institute) 2015 “State of American Energy” report dwells a lot on renewable energy possibilities. That’s significant, since renewable energy threatens the oil industry’s traditional business model. When the API itself comments on the benefits of renewable energy, you know the debate is over. Renewable energy will increase in market share.

I’ve done some research into the warmest years on record, and here’s what I’ve found:

First, we’ll look at land temperatures. 2014, 2010, and 2005 are statistically tied for the warmest years on record. Last year was probably the warmest. Since 1998, we’ve experienced the 15 warmest years on record.

ht tp://ww w.columbia.edu/~jeh1/mailings/2015/20150116_Temperature2014.pdf

So clearly the land temperature rise continues.

Now, let’s look at ocean temperatures, where 90% of the heat from global warming goes. According to the latest ocean temperature data available, the top 2700 feet of ocean is rising rapidly.

htt p://ww w.scientificamerican.co m/article/rapidly-warming-oceans-set-to-release-heat-into-the-atmosphere/

The dataset shows that the earth is warming.

Gee , I hope the climate change doesn't hit you in the arse ! Worst weather on record ! HMMMMMMMMMM ????

Don't need to Kendall, do your own homework but even your lefty sources admit it, begrudgingly of course. Take a look at the margin of error and you'll see its larger than the claimed increase lol

Shrinking evidence ???? If anything the preponderance of evidence is leaning further towards climate change !Of course if all you do is watch Faux then ....... nuff said !

Kunec- one would need to control ocean temperatures to control "weather",kunec.Dont you agree?

"the EARTH ISNT WARMING,"

Oh, you have proof that it has stayed constant or gone down? Please share.

When you ignore years and years of evidence, there won't be much left.

I guess with the ever shrinking pool of evidence of Global Warming, you have to take what you can get huh?

Harry have you had some kind of event?? You used to make arguments that had some thought and research behind them, now its like swatting flies. I hope your health is not suffering
