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.

"And still it's about ME, well if that's all ya got I suppose you have to go with it. Notice how it galls them to no end if there is a heretic amongst them, to question the sainted Algore how dare I. And still no proof, or even anecdotal evidence these days, the earth is not warming and hasn't for nearly two decades."

For goodness sake don't exalt yourself so much.

The reason I talk about you is that you have made for yourself a relatively safe barrier to hide behind. You won't prove your own thoughts on this issue and you stick to repeating that we have no proof,that we haven't offered any proof yadda yadda yadda.

Its easy to sit back ask for proof,deny said proof when offered and then underhandedly state that no proof was provided.

Thats the game you play.

Yet More Global Heat Records Fall in August: NOAA

Whats really disconcerting is the simple fact that just trying to show him our facts and then defending those facts reinforces his beliefs on this issue.

The simple act of talking to him is doing more harm than good.

Oh well I guess you'll have that.

Its just another silly phrase we will be seeing for awhile.

Like I said. He's just jerking chains.

We've proven long ago that he will not debate on a level playing field.

He's employed just about every single underhanded tactic to control the debate and cast doubt on the issue and constantly makes attempts at character assassination by associating us with socialists etc.

He repeats comments like "they support the government takeover of the energy industry" to cast a bad light on us.

His crusade on here is a result of his political paranoia.

Everyone is out to get him. Everyone not like him is actively trying to destroy this nation etc.

Sadly in his chosen political circle people have been acting in that manner for a very long time.

I'd like to see you try and debunk the scientific consensus.

Louisiana Congressional candidate Lenar Whitney candidate claimed, "Global warming is a hoax."

Politifact rated that statement and concluded, "There is an overwhelming consensus among respected scientists that human-caused global warming is real, and Whitney’s supporting evidence falls flat."

Whitney got the Pants on fire!

Still haven't heard of any climate scientist who disputes the basic science of global warming: that CO2 is a greenhouse gas.

Posted 583 days ago.

harryanderson

The consensus among climate scientists is that CO2 is a greenhouse gas. I've never known of a climate scientist Who denies it.

Global warming continues, according to stilhere, who posted that the upper ocean continues to absorb heat from global warming.

2014 may be the hottest year on record. It depends on the fourth quarter, but it is lining up to be the hottest.August was the hottest ever, not to mention several other months.

Posted 583 days ago.

Yes, ohwiaeone aliens stole the Arctic ice and took it to Antarctica.

The climate has been changing since the earth was created. Why would it stop now? You changers need to get a life. You don't control the earth or its weather.

It's not co2 that warms,Carnac the Magnificent,it faciltates the warming.Try ta keep up.And, think about what you said.That puts a purty good tear in your fabric of logic.No charge for that, it's the same as an emotional eval. (;

"You can't state facts about future warming. There are none. Only guesses ,opinions..."

I agree. Any prediction about the future, whether it be global warming or whether the law of gravity will end tonight, is guessing.

Not so the past and present. We can state facts about the past and present. Here's two: 1) global warming continues to heat up the upper ocean and 2) atmospheric temperatures have trended steadily upwards since we began burning large amounts of fossil fuels.

"Only guesses ,opinions, and fortune making lies."

Sorry but thats how you see it.

The scientists and what they say are informed on the issue and I trust what they say over folks like yourself who are extremely partisan in nature.

Its a proven fact that if you guys don't like something you will do anything and everything to justify your dislike of it.

Up to and including denying all facts about the issue. The truth doesn't matter only that you don't like it because socialist commies benghazi or whatever.

You can't state facts about future warming. There are none. Only guesses ,opinions, and fortune making lies. Rich and richer.......climate change pushers.

Now back to the real meat of this conversation.

Stillhere/Tiredofit will never admit he's wrong about any of this.

And he sure as heck will never admit when those of us who believe man has a hand in climate change are correct in the facts we offer him.

Does that sound like someone who wants a good debate?

Its just the old and tired Republican mantra of NO.

"And EVEN YOUR sources admit, no warming in 18 years and counting."

Um no they do not. Sorry but repeating that just isn't going to make it reality.

Especially in light of the recent findings that the oceans in the upper levels are getting warmer.
