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.

Thank you for admitting you cannot make the case for the very title of your thread.

Tiredofit, you once again demand proof. Yet, according to your definitions, proof of climate change is impossible. You wrote, “Proof is a concept that is really only applicable in mathematics, because math deals with abstract concepts and definitions.” So, to you, if a piece of evidence is real, rather than abstract, that evidence doesn’t count.

You also gave another absurd definition that deals with real, rather than abstract, phenomena. You wrote, “To be proven, something needs to be demonstrable and repeatable.” So, to you, the past temperature record doesn’t count because it isn’t “repeatable.”

Bottom line: Nothing real counts to you. The only thing that matters is what you dream up.

I will not waste this beautiful day********up a rope with you, you can make the case for Man made Global Warming or you can pound sand, I could not care less which you choose.

If you will take a look at the very title of this thread, the topic is MAN MADE GLOBAL WARMING. That is the nut of the argument. You may attempt to deflect all you wish, but that is the case.

Do what you will

"The case was MAN CAUSES GLOBAL WARMING."

I didn't intend to make that case today at all. Again, you're using the straw man fallacy. You're ascribing a position to me.

"Thanks for admitting you CANNOT make the case harry"

Again, this statement is false. If I don't try to swim from Parkersburg to Belpre, it's absurd to say I cannot.

You haven't yet kept this promise.

Where is the proof that man's activity is causing GLOBAL WARMING, anyone????

"You have failed to prove man is causing global warming."

That statement isn't accurate, since, in my posts yesterday and today, I wasn't trying to prove man is causing global warming. That would be like saying I failed to swim from Parkersburg to Belpre, when I never tried.

So, do you agree that CO2 is a greenhouse gas?

My case is complete. Now, do you agree that CO2 is a greenhouse gas? If not, why not?

"Iam not required to agree to any of your statements, lay out your case."

Nope. You're not required to agree. I made the case that CO2 is a greenhouse gas. Do you agree that I made my case? Or should I present more evidence.

You mentioned mathematical proof the other day. Then maybe you know that proof builds upon proof, and it's futile to go on to the second step without proving the first step.

So again. Do you believe CO2 is a greenhouse gas?
