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.

"John Coleman, who co-founded the Weather Channel, shocked academics by insisting the theory of man-made climate change was no longer scientifically credible.

Instead, what 'little evidence' there is for rising global temperatures points to a 'natural phenomenon' within a developing eco-system.

In an open letter attacking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, he wrote: "The ocean is not rising significantly.

"The polar ice is increasing, not melting away. Polar Bears are increasing in number.

"Heat waves have actually diminished, not increased. There is not an uptick in the number or strength of storms (in fact storms are diminishing).

"I have studied this topic seriously for years. It has become a political and environment agenda item, but the science is not valid."

It's amazing, Stillhere, that you avoid your own posts. So are you now saying that global warming ISN'T heating the top ocean?

Are you disavowing your former statement that global warming CONTINUES to heat the ocean?

Stillhere, you wrote, "ccording to Professor John Christy, director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama/Huntsville, October 1 marked the 18th anniversary of no warming as measured by Earth’s climate satellite system."

The fact satellites haven't shown warming doesn't mean there has been no warming. After, you yourself posted that global warming continues to warm the upper ocean.

what do you say about that?

Socialism always hurts the average ciitizen and creates wealthy and cruel leaders who are dictators in reality. Free enteprise gives us all a chance to prosper and have a good life .

I give a big thank you to the framers of our constitution.

Just like he promised, obama plans to transform this nation into his own ideology and cultural majority. After the election he plans to flood this country with immigrants who have no interest in being America loving citizens. What a disaster he has been and we will live with the effects forever.

"As for capitalism, I say this, it is the FREE state of man unlike socialism, so that being said the pursuit of happiness would require capitalism, not big govt socialism" Stillhere.

You do realize that capitalism in its unregulated state is a form of survival of the fittest?

Capitalism left unchecked and to its own designs is as much of a destructive beast as socialism.

Literally if something doesn't make business sense then its not done. A consumer,employee heck nation is at the whim of those who run the corporations.

And the shear amount of regulation on business bears out that corporations can not be trusted to do what is right. They do what is right for themselves which has in the past lead to huge injustices being committed on people.

No better an example is the Cuyahoga River.

The persons and companies that polluted that river had a choice. And you can see where that lead.

Stillhere said "MOD its right after the separation of church and state."

Posted 18 hours ago Are those your words?

I don't say there was that specific arrangement of those words,but it is clear what the role of congress is in this matter.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ..."

The overriding point though is the more things change the more they stay the same.

The only way to actually see any change in our Government for the better is to honestly wipe the slate clean. Get rid of every single one of them and start fresh.

But instead of picking from people who are seeking political office something different needs to be done.

Call it a civil service term in the government. Draft qualified people directly out of the populace. Either appoint them through a special process that vets their abilities or do elections and let the people vote for them.

The election process as it stands has been compromised. And so has effective government.

"If we just don't lose it before this bunch in DC is replaced."Ithink

Replaced with what exactly? In case you can't remember a lot of our rights were undermined Pre-Obama.

Especially in regards to online privacy.

I mean don't you find it troubling that the NSA wants and gets access to computer hardware and software to make backdoors they can later exploit.

All of that was brought into play during the last presidents run. Obama just continued it.

Many things are not mentioned,even by definition, in the constitution, Ever read about abortion, the internet, or gay marriage in it?

Some words were not even in existence in those early days. But everything we need is in it.If we just don't lose it before this bunch in DC is replaced.

Where is the word 'capitalism' mentioned in our constitution, tired?

Posted 477 days ago.

ohwiseone has never heard of Michael Moore. or all the failed green businesses that were given huge amounts of money for bonuses when it was already known they were going bankrupt. He has never read about the difference in AL Gore's riches after his climate change tricks. He doesn't know about all the grants to " Scientists" who cooked the books and fudged the stats. In fact, he doesn't know much of anything.

Yes,AuburnMountaineer , when their global warming became the joke that it is, they had to scramble for a new name. It is hard to go wrong with " climate change". Lol

Posted 477 days ago.

harryanderson

AuburnMountaineer, "Global warming" and "climate change" refer to different phenomena.

"Within scientific journals, this is still how the two terms are used. Global warming refers to surface temperature increases, while climate change includes global warming and everything else that increasing greenhouse gas amounts will affect."

ht tp://w ww.nasa.go v/topics/earth/features/climate_by_any_other_name.html

Politicians may use the terms interchangeably, but scientists don't.

And we should be concerned with scientific discussionsmore than political agendas.

When the libs changed it from "global warming" to "climate change", we had to suspect something was up.
