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.

Exposing hypocrisy is fun, not frustrating.

No it's not a great source of frustration to me, setting a couple of people straight on a unread forum is just a hobby and not one of any import.

You can keep trying to distort facts b it that won't prove a thing. Why won't you defend your antiscience beliefs of the age of the earth? 99.9% of science disagrees with you, why be a denier?

I see you choose to ignore the 99.9% that disagree with you Harry. Your anti science beliefs are relevant to the understanding of history.

But I guess you gotta do something desperate when you can't change your mind and less than 3/4 of one percent of the 12,000 papers under consideration agree with you.

In other words, when the scientific debate over global warming is of enormous frustration to you, you gotta change the subject to a scientific debate over creation.

Exactly,'Kendall. Tiredofit repeats this pattern over and over. When his arguments come into question, he tries to change the subject.

"So as you avoid the obvious hypocrisy in your argument,"

I think he is trying to avoid the obvious attempt by you at deflection.

"as we all pick and choose whats "science" we believe.."

The problem with this is that you don't give science much at all. You give opinions of other and appeal to authority.

"When you take a result of 32.6% of all papers that accept AGW"

Actually, they took in the papers that gave a reason in their research for Global Warming. They didn't just take in the ones that were just AGW.

Btw, it was YOU who brought your religion to this forum and made it fair game

Tiredofit

So,, how is the scientific consensus that denies your religion any less valid than the one you claim on AGW? Do tell.

Tiredofit

SO slave to science Harry, do you believe it NOW????? we have consensus>

Of the scientists and engineers in the United States, only about 5% are creationists, according to a 1991 Gallup poll (Robinson 1995, Witham 1997). However, this number includes those working in fields not related to life origins (such as computer scientists, mechanical engineers, etc.). Taking into account only those working in the relevant fields of earth and life sciences, there are about 480,000 scientists, but only about 700 believe in "creation-science" or consider it a valid theory (Robinson 1995). This means that less than 0.15 percent of relevant scientists believe in creationism. And that is just in the United States, which has more creationists than any other industrialized country. In other countries, the number of relevant scientists who accept creationism drops to less than one tenth of 1 percent. Well I guess not 100% LOL

Scientists say man evolved from the sea Harry, do ya believe them? 100% believe that so it must be so, right Harry?

Climate Change Killed Neandertals, Study Says. How bout this Harry?

Posted 53 days ago.

Tiredofit

Scientists can study Earth’s climate as far back as 800,000 years by drilling core samples from deep underneath the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica, believe this Harry?

Thanks for showing you hypocrisy again, and demonstrating blind faith in science when it suits you.

Posted 53 days ago.

Tiredofit

And you call me a denier

Posted 53 days ago.

harryanderson

Thanks for raising this issue, Tiredofit, and once again confirming that only a tiny minority of scientists reject AGW.

The more you post and we investigate, the more robust the consensus becomes.
