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.

@Tired- no one is saying that an idividual tornado is caused by global warming and climate change. What is being said that the increase in tornado activity is a result of those changes in the climate.

Do you know what the typical weather pattern was in Northern Africa 20,000 years? It was a much wetter place but climate change made it into a desert. So yes, climate change can create drought.

It is true IThink, they say weather is not climate if you talk about how cold it is, but a tornado or drought, now that is evidence of climate change?

Isn't it just so convenient to believe in a climate religion that causes EVERYTHING?

Too hot?......too cold?......GW

Hurricanes, tornadoes,rain, drought,ice meltng, ice freezing.....GW

They can't lose. They just ride whatever is the current of the day, to the bank. And we pay and pay and pay.

Thatsabsurd

oh myth you inbeCILE NOAA was busted with 100s of pages of "deliberately" altered data....we know your imbecile retention is very short but we haven't forgotten the 100's and 100's of Great lake temperature recordings by NOAA then "deliberately changed to over 400 degrees degree................ LOL

Imbeciles are what imbeCILES are

As IF you had the skills to analyze anything you are posting MYTH, a short bus Climatologist just doesn't have much credibility. SORRY

If you have kids or grandkids Ithink and they bring this subject up and you tell them its all hogwash just know that they will likely see you as a fool when it does affect them.

You know what made Typhoon Haiyan so strong? It hit a huge swath of water that was 86 degrees down to a depth of 300ft.

The winds in that storm hit 195mph at one point.

That happens in the atlantic? We will see a huge hurricane hit the east coast.

I don't think I will stay awake at night worrying, uselessly, ahout the people who voluntarily live at sea level Key West.

If you warmers do, or don't, spit in the ocean, you are as insignificant as a grain of sand. Your self importance is greatly exaggerated.

Even Heartland Institute honcho Joe Bast admitted that the counter climate change movement (CCCM) hasn’t changed the opinions of climate scientists. The journal Nature reported Bast said,

“We've won the public opinion debate, and we've won the political debate as well, but the scientific debate is a source of enormous frustration."

It’s easy for the CCCM to win the public opinion and political debates now because most of us aren’t personally experiencing the effects of climate change.

However, if 97% of the most-published and peer-reviewed experts are right, the CCCM, which is already losing the scientific debate, will also lose the public opinion and political debates as people experience the ill effects of climate change for themselves.

Experience may not be the best teacher, but it is certainly a teacher.

"Why should we be concerned about GW, if it doesn't warm or cool us? We hardly have to worry about ocean overwash here in the WV hills. What's the big deal?"

Ithink I don't know about you but I like living in a less than heavily populated area. Parkersburg is the right size. Flooding of the coastal areas would mean mass migrations of people farther inland into areas such as our own.

Now I am sure there are benefits to that but given that a lot the areas along the coasts host very large populations those very large populations would bring their problems with them.

I want no part of that. It would dilute the character of the places those people move into. Not to mention the crime rate would climb.

"We hardly have to worry about ocean overwash here in the WV hills."

Let's hope Florida or any of the states with coastlines ever come to you asking for help.

I guess the general response to the Elk River problem should have been, "Oh well...not our problem...***** to be you."

Dang when are you people going to get it that the warming does not translate into total warming of the planet. Sure the climate is heating up but that still doesn't mean that the polar areas of this planet are just stopping being cold.

They are still very cold and that is where this cold is coming from.

Posted 83 days ago.

Does it help keep people who are freezing warm, to tell them that they are really being heated? When is this warming going to get here? The warmists need to use their crystal balls and give us specfic dates. We are sick of snow.

Bring it on.

Hmm its not 104 no more but NA...what does NA mean. I know New America.

See there is a conspiracy.

But lets make something clear first.

On the name calling. As soon as this issue started getting more coverage in the news and it was seen that it was topic that left would take under their wing what has been vomited forth out of right wing mouths.

That it is a communist socialist America hating (and I mean hating)America destroying attempt at world domination or some chit like that.

Try and defend it..guess what..get branded a socialist America hating evil.

So on that name calling...I didn't start that stuff.

Want civility then act civil including your participation in debates.

So where was we. Oh yea arguing over he said she said right? Instead of the science surrounding this issue.

Since we are invariably talking of a vast conspiracy here lets delve into exactly what it would take to pull that off.

Its not like the science is locked away and hidden from view unable to be challenged.

Care to spew some untruths about that topic Tiredofit?

My guess is that you will whine more about scientific funding.

An attempt was tried at having honest reasoned debate on this topic and no takers were found from your party.

Kind of hard to rebut what someone else is saying when the other party refuses to answer questions.

I'm done rebutting you fools. I have no issue stepping down to your level.
