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.

This was not part of the report released. "Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all."

Well mod did you read the fine print? 38% confidence and the margin of error is many times the supposed increase does that not give you pause?

tired- those reports say it was the hottest year.

Oh HARRY? Don't wanna talk about your claim on 2014???

Mod normally its the one that MAKES the claim who has the burden of supporting said claim, otherwise you are viewed in the same light as Munster who is a known moron and we wouldn't want that.

Serial liars and deniers mod ! Does'nt matter what research you show , it wont be good enough !

Wouldnt the question be " do you have any verified information to support your claim that 2014 was the hottest year ever?

Do you have any verified info that says it isn't, tired?

You two clowns claim boldly that 2014 was the warmest EVER, now you give me "you cannot prove that's its not" from Mod, and Harry doesn't think we should quibble over which year is warmest! Lol. Dang you sure backed off that one when the facts came out, maybe you shouldn't take the progressive sound bites so literally

I imagine you feel a little embarrassed citing the claim without reading the fine print.

So HARRY nice to see you return, care to explain your claim of 2014 being the warmest ever?

The one that stopped 18 years ago?

I'd say moderation means that quibbling over the amount of warming in any particular year is far less important than the long-term trend of dramatic warming.

While your obscure and odd analogies seem clever to you, I'm afraid you may be the only ones that get them. Changing energy policy or taxing carbon should hing on a little more than maybe, if and 38% accuracy. Now go ship your piano or whatever.

I don't understand this double posting.

We aren't building a piano, just a box to put it in. Just as we aren't trying to land a craft on Mars.

"Another analysis, from the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) project, drawn from ten times as many measuring stations as GISS, concluded that if 2014 was a record year, it was by an even tinier amount."
