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.

Well there are lots of good books on the subject, as far as weapons go pretty much everything we have now we developed then, we went underwater with the Hunley although it was not the first sub, just the fist successful one, we went to the air with balloons we advanced from Mepolean formations to trench warfare that would define war for a century. We used Greek fire sorta napalm of the time, rifedd cannon that shot MILES not yards, gernades, landmines the list goes on.

I honestly don't think there is a better or really more concise book on that subject matter out there.

If there is I haven't run across it.

The Civil War is something that interests me too. Especially the advancement of weaponry during that time period.

Someday I really want to tour the battlefields. Probably start with Gettysburg.

But the one place that I absolutely plan on seeing is the Monitor Museum.

I am aware of the book, however I have not read it yet but have read excerpts. I teach civil war history in our local school system from time to time, NOT a teacher just invited to speak. My focus is life of the soldier and weapons, appreciate you brining this back to my attention, might have to pick it up finally.

Hey Tiredofit if you haven't read it. I highly suggest getting a copy of Hardtack and Coffee. Its without a doubt one of the most interesting Civil War books I have ever read. You might enjoy it.

Oh I polish stuff just not knobs. I polish/clean and use vintage shaving instruments. Everything except straight razors that is.

Too expensive of an outlay to join that club.

Out of the papers that did give an opinion on the cause of Global Warming, 97.1% said it was due to mankind.

There has been talk about the 97% of scientists that support the concept that mankind is assisting in Global Warming.

Who are these scientists and in "some" people's minds...how much is the government paying them to say that?

The truth is, this isn't about any poll but about peer reviewed papers on the topic of Global Warming.

Out of 11,940 peer review papers on Global Warming: 66.4% gave no opinion on man made global warming 32.6% said it is happening due to man 1% rejected that man is causing it or wasn't sure

"if you think for one second I will do anything i am told by you or Kendall, you are quite deluded."

Yes, it is highly delusional to expect a person to answer relevant questions in a debate. What were we thinking?

And for the record, I never demanded you to answer the questions. I merely asked you to answer them and not to deflect them. However, you decided to cower behind silence.

Well sadly I don't collect antique door hardware, more civil war stuff but do tell us about your knobs polishing, we wait

Tiredofit

Are these door knobs you polish? I like antiques too, when you called me a knob polished did you somehow think I collected antique door hardware?

Tiredofit

"You assail my character"

Now thats hilarious in the highest degree!

Tiredofit you slander and mock anyone that doesn't agree with you.

No respect will be given when none is received.

Apologise for calling Harry a fraud.

Lets see the depths of your sincerity.

As far as the Gas/Jar test goes there is an easy way to remove doubt surrounding the heat-lamp issue.

Two jars. One with normal air in it and one with a measured amount of co2 added to its air mixture set outside..in direct sunlight with identical digital thermometers inserted through holes drilled in the lid and sealed.

I wonder how that would go?

I know where I'd place my bet.

"I am very tired of this debate for lack of a better term, it's going nowhere."

Make a good good argument built on facts that are believable and that hold up to scrutiny that isn't politically motivated then maybe it might go somewhere...for you.

"You assail my character while ignoring your little buddies.."

This is humorous, if he found problems in other people's character..do you believe it will make your bad behavior better in some way?

Tired, does CO2 effect how atmosphere retains heat?

Yes or No

Why are you afraid of answering the question?

Do you agree that CO2 has greenhouse gas behavior?

Yes or No

I have made my views known many times, you disagree and there is an end of it

Tiredofit
