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.

And still you deflect or deny the truth ! The point that your right-wing training lacks is the one thing you all refuse to answer !Who is going to make money and how are they earning it ,by warning folks that we need to take care of our planet ? And I am by far not a "liberal" ! But I detest the way you Ru****es use it like its a swear word !And the "hate , war on women is well documented as coming from your side ! And again , the republican strategy of denial,deflection and lie, lie, lie wont help you shake that off !

Ohwiseone can't post without his obsession with faux, whatever that is. Liberals are lost without the words faux, hate, Koch bros., racism and war on women. Lol Most people have never heard of the Koch bros. Soros is much more famous.

Here's some rebuttal for you ! You still haven't addressed the fact that the Arctic has lost about 70% of its total volume of sea ice over the past three decades. Was it magic or maybe aliens stole the Ice ? One things for sure , it's not there anymore !

Oh and I hate to point this out again. Stillhere formerly known as Tiredofit it got banned on this site and the Marietta Times site.

It takes a certain amount of bitterness to post in a manner that gets you banned. Just sayin.

"The level of bitterness they bring is quite clear but a rational person would have to wonder why."

LOL! Really? This from the guy who repeatedly calls out people as socialists when they plainly state they are not. This from the guy who repeatedly stated that those who believe in the validity of this issue are wanting to see the government take over the energy industry? Even after we said we do not support such actions.

THIS from the guy who on the Marrietta Times forum resorted to calling another poster a fluffer?

This from the guy who made fun of and used against me a math disability I stated I had. Repeatedly using the term shortbus.

Really? LOL! Such hypocrisy.

"And they ARE socialists, some like Myth are just not bright enough to realize the ultimate end to their goals." Stillhere

There you go falsely equating me with a political movement I do not subscribe to.

But I do understand why you do that.

Its a doubt casting tactic.

All that does is show that this issue and your disagreement with it is of a political nature.

After all why would you point out (falsely) the political leanings of people if it was just about the facts of the issue itself?

Posted 33 days ago.

mythravere

LOL! Then you claim as you have before that our interest in this issue has reached the level of religion.

Well the same can be said about you.

This crusade is so important to you that you just had to come back after getting banned.

"Perhaps that explains the visceral reaction by posters on this forum NO?" Stillhere.

Oh goodness lol!

If anyone is having a visceral reaction its you buckwheat.

All one has to do is to look at how you debate.

I mean it wasn't I who got banned off of two sites because of my behaviour.

That was you. And here you are back under another username doing the same things that got you booted before.

“Global Warming has become a religion,” writes Lindzen. “A surprisingly large number of people seem to have concluded that all that gives meaning to their lives is the belief that they are saving the planet by paying attention to their carbon footprint.”

Lindzen compares global warming to past politicized scientific movements: the eugenics movement in the early 20th Century and Lysenkoism in the Soviet Union under Stalin. However, the MIT professor argues that global warming goes even beyond what these past movements in terms of twisting science.

“Global Warming has become a religion,” writes Lindzen. “A surprisingly large number of people seem to have concluded that all that gives meaning to their lives is the belief that they are saving the planet by paying attention to their carbon footprint.”

Yes MORE FUNDING

According to Lindzen, scientists make essentially “meaningless” claims about certain phenomenon. Activists for certain causes take up claims made by scientists and politicians respond to the alarmism spread by activists by doling out more research funding. — creating an “Iron Triangle” of poor incentives.

“How can one escape from the Iron Triangle when it produces flawed science that is immensely influential and is forcing catastrophic public policy?” Lindzen asks.

A political agenda? Dr Lindzen agrees

Throughout history, governments have twisted science to suit a political agenda. Global warming is no different, according to Dr. Richard Lindzen of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

“Global climate alarmism has been costly to society, and it has the potential to be vastly more costly. It has also been damaging to science, as scientists adjust both data and even theory to accommodate politically correct positions,” writes Lindzen in the fall 2013 issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.
