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.

“Harry is a fraudulent self named republican. Even crazy G warmers don't join a group whose values are the opposite of their own.”

Actually, Ithink, if you bothered to check, you would discover my views on climate change—recent warming is mostly caused by human activity--are shared by one out of four Republican-leaning voters.

According to a Pew poll released last November:

“Opinions of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents divide into four roughly equal size groups: 23% say there is solid evidence of global warming and it is mostly caused by human activity; 19% say warming exists but is due to natural patterns; 25% see no solid evidence and say it is just not happening; 20% say there is no solid evidence but not enough is known yet.”

I reserve the right to join the Republican Party and not be enslaved by you Thought Police.

If you think that you think for us Republicans, Ithink, you’re out of sync.

Snow was supposed to be rare by now. Look outside.

Harry is a fraudulent self named republican. Even crazy G warmers don't join a group whose values are the opposite of their own.

Myth do your own research for a change. Administration bigwigs have been trying to counter the CBO report of jobs that will be lost, due to obamacare, by saying it will be good for people to stay home with their families.

I know, it is unbelievable. Tune in to the truth, myth.

“Most decent people wouldn't use that as leverage to dismiss what someone is saying.”

I don’t feel Tiredofit is the vicious bully his name-calling on here would lead us to believe.

He’s made his concerns clear, and I share them. If the climate scientists are right, we will have to change the way we use fossil fuel, and our whole civilization is built on fossil fuel. We SHOULD fear that a dictator will exploit the uncertain situation to enslave us.

Like Tiredofit, I hope that anthropogenic climate change is a hoax. However, the preponderance of scientific evidence makes it very unlikely that climate scientists are hoodwinking us.

Like Heartland honcho Joe Bast says, “…the scientific debate is of enormous frustration for (we)” who don’t want our way of life destroyed. I feel that’s why Tiredofit lashes out; it’s not that he isn’t a decent person. He is.

Kendall him calling me short bus stems from me revealing that I had a learning disability in math.

Most decent people wouldn't use that as leverage to dismiss what someone is saying.

Him using my lack of math skills against me after I told him about it reveals what kind of person he really is.

So let him call me short bus.

He's the one crapping on his "image" on here.

Oh well. Acting in a belligerent way toward someones shortcomings is a tradition amongst Republicans its seems.

"what a short bus"

Why don't you just commit yourself to your juvenile behavior and call him retarded? At least be honest with your stupidity.

Curious, do you call African-Americans the N-word or do you try to come up with a clever way to be just as insulting?

"Stay out of our business and leave us alone, you nannies."

Guess you don't believe that the govt should have gotten involved with the whole Elk River disaster then. They should have just left it alone.

"A religion is a belief that influences the believer's life to a great extent. Fanatical global warmers fit that description."

Nope. Would you call your nigh fanatical belief that man has no influence on global warming as a religion? I doubt you would.

There is nothing really wrong with a belief, as long as you don't try and peddle it as a fact when you have nothing to show it is a fact.

"Now this joke of an administration is openly saying it will be good for people to stay home and not have jobs."

Say Ithink care to cite where you heard that?

My guess is that some republican is misquoting something someone said.

And socialism is not here. Do you even know what it is?

Me thinks that's just something you righties tell yourselves.

If you can't beat demonize them right?

Ithink if this country conducted its internal business the way people like yourself see fit I wonder how many more incidents like what happened in Charleston there would be?

My guess is a heck of a lot more.

Remember regulations are in place in most cases because a particular industry was found to be willfully doing something wrong at some point.

Whether it be fouled up air or fouled up waterways. Industries under EPA scrutiny in more cases than not needed to be regulated to keep them from polluting environment. They dont do these things because they think its right they do it because they have been made to do so by regulations in answer to problems they have caused.

Anyone that disagrees with you Tiredofit is a fraud and liar in your mind.

Oh well the manner in which the discussion has went down on here bears the real truth.

Believe me it doesn't reflect well on you.

Keep telling that lie Harry, you show yourself for what you are, fraud and a liar.

“I don't much care what a short bus and a fraud have to say to be perfectly honest.”

You also “don’t much care” what 97% of the world’s most expert climate scientists have to say, do you?

Tiredofit

I don't much care what a short bus and a fraud have to say to be perfectly honest.

Gee,myth, you agree totally with a republican. Lol

A total miracle.

Posted 71 days ago.

My beliefs don't cost you a penney,myth. But we tax payers have been paying for the green energy disasters like Solyndra and all the others. Jobs and tax revenue are lost through the corrupt EPA and obama regulations. The power grid is not safe either. Better stock up on batteries.

Stay out of our business and leave us alone, you nannies.

Now this joke of an administration is openly saying it will be good for people to stay home and not have jobs. Socialism is here. It is a much more dangerous worry than maybe, could be, might happen GW. If we all get stned we might not notice.

Harry was totally right in his comment about Tiredofit.

The problem is that we need to focus on what we can and should do. We need to be certain that the solutions we choose are the right ones.

Its really hard to do that when the discussion is muddied up by disruptive elements.

Tiredofit is a perfect example of a disruptive element to which I am referring.

Instead of honestly taking each issue in contention and talking about it openly with nothing more than the facts he picks and chooses the points he wants argue over.

Like the issue of funding. He always returns to that point because there is doubt to be squeezed out of that particular detail.

He uses it as an excuse to deny the whole body of work that climate scientists lay on the table. All the while refusing to answer other questions.

The earth is warming no arguing that point at all.

The problems we will see in our lifetimes aren't totally known. But we know that as the earth gets warmer big changes will take place.

We can try to stop it or we can position ourselves to adapt to it. But know for a fact that the countries not prepared for anything could find themselves in very desperate circumstances.

Desperate circumstances could very well lead to war.

War is a dangerous thing to court. Who knows where our civilization could find itself if another world war happened.

Thats just one of the many problems climate change could hit us with.

On the issue of Christianity let me say this.

I came across a picture of Kirk Cameron and in the picture this was said.

He demands that the government protect his right to practice his lifestyle so that he may influence others with his beliefs.

He demands that the government deny others the right to practice their own lifestyle for fear that they may influence others.

The pretty well sums up the issue I have with certain monotheistic religions.

Leave the rest of us alone and don't force your radical opinions on us!

Take your own advice Ithink.
